  1. The Hobby Corner #11

    Oil Paint Weathering Pt II – Surface Discoloration Pt I So in my earlier posts I talked about using chipping fluid to create the initial layer of weathering on a model. Today I am going to expand further on weathering and talk about using oil paints for weathering, before going into details of the next step, I have just a...
  2. The New Recruit #9

    List Synergies I have yet to rematch Trevor Christiansen and Molik Karn, but reflecting over my last couple of losses I have come to one stark conclusion: I am still clueless in understanding list synergies. List synergies are what turn basic models and units into powerful tools of destruction. However the more intricate and subtle interactions still completely evade me...
  3. Miniature Musings #8

    Types of Gamers According to Choice of Drink (Mark 2) In my first Miniature Musings article ever, I mused on the role that alcohol can play in the world of wargaming. With most conventions offering convenient access to a lobby bar and a room within easy walking distance, it isn’t surprising that both recreational drinking and recreational gaming frequently go...
  4. What Does the Card Say #10

    The ‘Jack goes Wirrrr, the ‘Beast goes Grrrr, but What does the card say? I have to admit that I am pretty surprised that you are back after last week’s debacle involving YouTube…but obviously you are a glutton for punishment so I am here to oblige you! The truth is I too am a glutton for punishment, which is why...
  5. Warmachine List Breakdown #8 by Andrew Hartland

    General Ossrum’s Generalists   Pull up a chair and let me tell you a tale about the General…well actually, let me tell you about this list I made for him. I have heard that it’s legit but you will probably have to see it for yourself ;) My list is: General Ossrum - WJ: +5 - Ghordson Earthbreaker - PC...
  6. Board Games with Nathan #6

    Have no fear. Have no fear. You will be killed right away. - They Might Be Giants Cooperative games are a great way to spend an evening together. Since the entire group wins together or loses together it is a great way to have the fun of a strategic boardgame without the stress or hard feelings of direct competition. They're...
  7. Model Redemption #9 by Anthony Ferraiolo

    Treewalking with Ravagers There probably isn’t a unit more near and dear to my heart than Tharn Ravagers. I have played them since I began playing the game, being the first unit I bought and painted; even played them in my first Kromac build running his Tier (before I knew what that was)! All that silliness aside, I have grown...
  8. The Hobby Corner #10

    Decals and Dry Transfers Part II (view Part 1 here) Last week we talked about decals, and went over surface prep, application, and follow up. Today I would like to talk about dry transfers. As a recap dry transfers do not require moisture to activate the adhesive, they simply need to be “rubbed” onto the surface to have them stick...
  9. Miniature Musings #7

    Spell Draft Inspired Caster Changes If you haven’t heard already, there is considerable buzz surrounding the newest mode of gameplay that Privateer Press intends to roll out at Lock and Load: the spell/animi draft. In this format of gameplay, players will draft their spells and animi from 8-card decks. This functions identically to a magic draft, with each player selecting...
  10. What Does the Card Say? #9

    What does the card say? (Fraka-kaka-kaka-kaka-kow!) In my spare time I watch a lot of video battle reports. I usually try to stick to the players whom I know are very good at the game, I usually learn something from watching them every time. However sometimes I find myself in the dark recesses of YouTube – you know that area...
