An Economic Guide to Warcasters and Warlocks
Warmachine & Hordes
Hello! In my last article, I broke down the average cost per point of every model in the game besides warcasters and warlocks, which I usually generically refer to as “casters”. The obvious reason I could not put casters in the analysis was that they do not cost actual points. In addition to this, they are a complex variable because the …
Guildball Batrep #2 – Blacksmiths vs. Brewers
Guildball
  We got next to no feedback on the previous Battle Report, so clearly we’re meant to do more.  Or we enjoy it more than you do and your feedback is impervious to our pats on eachother’s backs.  Either way, we’re back.  Still Adam and still me, JD. Today’s matchup is Adam playing his Butchers if he can assemble them …
An Economic Guide to Warmachine and Hordes
Warmachine & Hordes
Hello! First off, let me introduce myself. My name is Micah Walker, and I was just recently invited by my friend Dan White to start writing here. Little did he know when he extended the invitation that I was already working on something, a comprehensive guide to the dollar cost per point of models in Warmachine and Hordes. Let’s dive …
Judgement, the game
Judgment
Every wargamer I talk to has a different opinion on Kickstarter being used to fund new games, and I have backed some and not others. So when an Australian company (unknown to me) released its Kickstarter asking for $34k (ish) USD to start a new game, I made a mistake and didn’t back it. The game in question was Judgement, a game inspired by …
Through the Breach, Master Spotlight: The Dreamer (Summoner style) Pt 1.
Malifaux
Greetings!  I’m here today to talk to everyone about a very serious condition: Summoning Sickness (get it?  It’s a M:tG joke). Earlier this year, everyone’s favorite child of Malifaux received a Cuddle in the form of changes to his primary totem, the Daydreams.  Specifically, Daydreams no longer add Masks to every summon Dreamer does for a turn, but just the first. …
Steamcon USA LCQ- Recap with Brewers

  Well it’s been sometime since our last Explosive Brew, which I blame on SFG for constantly evolving the game of Guildball. It has been a few days since Steamcon USA and I’ve been able to collect my thoughts and sobriety and recap my LCQ tournament for you. My 10 for the tournament were: Tapper, Esters, Scum, Spigot1, Friday, Hooper, …

Guildball
Hey folks, this will be the first of a new series of articles from Diceotfirstdegree and published on MidwestWargaming. If you’ve been following DotFD since the Warmachine days, you’ve already seen a lot of my batreps since that was most of my content. Guildball takes a bit more to write up though, and a lot more pictures, so I’ve really …

Guildball
Alex, by now everyone in our hobby has seen your face or heard that you are the 2017 World Champion of Guild Ball. But I’m not sure if everyone fully appreciates the truly herculean feat you accomplished to get there. A quick recap:   Friday, you jumped into the 83 person Guild Ball meat-grinder that was the LCQ and came …
Statistical Analysis of Guildball: Season 3 updates – All Guilds Overview
Guildball
  I’m really spamming this formula, aren’t I?  There’s one more too, the Hunters.  That’s only 4 new players and they don’t change the statlines that much, although their playbooks contain more momentous options.  Nobody cares about those guys though.   The Blacksmiths and Farmers are upon us.  While most of the Farmers were in the book, the Blacksmiths were …
