Crooked Lanes and Deep Shafts

I grew up in a boom town. It was on its…I think third boom, when I was there. It’s into its fourth now, with a pretty significant bust in between. When I was living there and experiencing all the fun that comes with being an adolescent, the town existed to mine trona. If you read […]

More Painted Malifaux!

I’ve got Jakob Lynch painted, and his crew’s rapidly reaching painted completion. I admit I’m apprehensive about the female Illuminated, because there’s a dress involved and I just don’t know if I’ll do it justice. So, we’ve got the Illuminated, which I just glued to their bases. I want the “Vomiting Brilliance onto a dude” […]

Prime Time Picture Dump!

I genuinely don’t use puns this often in actual speech; there’s something about needing to throw a title on a post, though, that turns me into my worst self. I actually ran a search through previous posts to be sure I hadn’t already used “Prime Time.” I wouldn’t have put it past me. Anyway, I’ve got my […]

Such a Dope Concept

This is a great damn idea. I’m wading into the shallow end of the Malifaux RPG, Through the Breach. Last week I put in an order (through Amazon because I don’t think I could get both of them from Wyrd’s store at the time) for both boxes of their PC character kits. Because, you know, yes.

A Mighty Harvest!

Some items arrived: I picked up a crazy haul from the first Reaper Bones Kickstarter, so I was happy to jump in on the second one.  Because of that initial haul, though, I wasn’t particularly interested in the core set of minis. For roughly what I spent the first time around, I focused up on specific […]

I Had a Little Monkey…

That’s from a Marilyn Manson song! An old one, that I don’t think many folks know. It was a good song, from a great album. Currently, the pale giant is doing a lot of interviews, and they’re making it very challenging to defend my appreciation of the dude’s music. The AV Club couldn’t even get him […]

Where Do Beastbabies Come From?

Harpies? Yes? No? Maybe? To me, the Beastman fluff feels very backed-down, and with the direction GW has gone (see for reference: Necrons) I don’t imagine they’ll change things up. The way Beastmen are presented is…sanitized. I don’t revel in sexual violence, by any means, but given the satyr that serves as the background for […]
