Marvel Heroes is from the Streets!

Man, I sure love Marvel Heroes. I’ve picked up both of the Advance Packs, which are moderately high buy-in (though roughly a unit and a car in, say, Warhammer) packages that pre-purchase all the upcoming heroes for the game’s next year of development. The game’s had a bit more than a year of development. I’ve […]

On the Concept of “Table Ready”

I find this idea fascinating. In brief, folks describe a model (or unit, or army, etc.) as “table ready” when it meets the requirements for…play on a table. To some extent this is informed by general tournament requirements, which are more or less 3 distinct colors and “basing material.” The basing material bit tends to […]

FAQ Changes Are Exciting!

Folks at my local store are still deep below decks on that Privateer action, but Warhammer Fantasy just got a significant update. Short version is that the End Times changes to army building (Lords and Heroes increased from up to 25% to up to 50%) are now across-the-board official. Lore of Undeath also made available to […]

Gamechanger

Quick post…do have some battle reports in the hopper, for Warmachine and Warhammer alike. This post, though, is a short one. A short, tragic tale…which didn’t start out tragic, at the least, but I confirmed what I was about to type and realized that my dreams were utterly dashed. See, I was reading this article, […]

WaH: Twofer!

This is the (bereft of actual notes) battle report of a 2v2 game at the club’s Saturday Open Gaming. On Thursday, my wife and I popped over to the shop for a day of games. After the somewhat grim tidings earlier in the week, we wanted to till the community soil, so to speak. We’d […]

WaH: Playing Dead

I played my first proper Battlegroup game! A lot of factors were working against it–some club dramatics, prevailing illness leaving folks ragged, fewer supplies than would be ideal (when my marker started to go out it was a dangerous time, because marking things). The relative newness of the rules isn’t on that list, though, because […]

WaH By Myself: Legion Takes First Victory

It’s a challenge, because any abbreviation using Warmachine and Hordes treads dangerously close to sounding like a Warhammer reference; I’m sure this is where that portmanteau I won’t use came from in the first place. I’ma try out WaH, though; the only reference it really calls to mind is Orks yelling, and nobody’s having a bad […]

As Close to Playing a Game as Not Playing Can Be

The original intent for this blog–and the name–was proactively arresting a sort of bulbous-headed mental over-saturation to which I am subject. My head fills up with excitement, or interest, or sometimes boredom, and the compensation for my hyper engagement is usually a mixture of disaffectation and jawing the ears off of anyone in my reach.
