Tectonic Craft Studios, Guildball terrain review
Guildball
If you’ve ever gone to a wargaming convention in the Midwest, than chances are that you’ve seen a table full of MDF accessories and a man with stylish hair. Tectonic Craft Studios is the terrain company and the man with stylish hair is Archy Dan. I don’t have Dan’s travel log but he’s basically the Carmen Sandiego of vendors; some …
Blood & Plunder Battle Report
Battle Reports
  A couple months ago I went to Adepticon, a premiere miniature wargaming convention in the Midwest and I played many games and spent lots of money. I’m no stranger to blowing a wad of cash on cool minis but normally I keep my purchases within my wargaming comfort zone (Warmachine/Hordes, Infinity and Guild Ball). However, this year I spent my …
Two sides to every coin: Press Gang Program dissolved
Off Topic
On March 8th, news hit the Warmachine/Hordes community that the Press Ganger program was being terminated. While others were bearing the full weight of this news, I was out with my wife and my realtor looking at multiple houses. We looked at six different houses in a span of three hours and throughout our trip we each had very different …
Review of GreenstuffWorld Textured Rolling Pins
Off Topic
I first saw these textured rolling pins last year on the prize support table during MuseOnMinis Wargaming Convention. GreenStuffWorld donated a bunch of stuff for prize support and these glass cylinders were part of their donation. They look unlike any other wargaming accessory I’ve ever seen before; I wasn’t sure if they were supposed to help my bases look cool or if they were going …
Growing an Infinity Community
Infinity
As a brand new WarCor and someone who’s been growing Infinity communities for four years, I know how hard it can be. Sometimes it can feel like you’re rowing a boat up stream with a paddle. Other times it can feel like you’re trying to steer a rowboat through a tsunami with nothing more than your hands. It can be a …
The lost Gavin Kyle File: Deliverers
Off Topic
I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a little confused when I received this assignment. True, the Protectorate of Menoth is an elusive bunch of zealots but that secrecy only exists within the upper echelons. Down at the bottom of the totem pole your average Menite soldier is about as mysterious as a broom.  And while I appreciate the easy …
Aggressor:Recon Review
Off Topic
  Today I’m going to talk about Aggressor:Recon, a new game from Critical Snail Studios. Aggressor is a 28mm sci-fi miniature wargame set in the 23rd century. The game details the struggles of humans from various factions such as mega corporations and colonists, and the variety of alien species that inhabit the galaxy. This game is from a small independent …
Announcing Lecture Notes From the Breach
Malifaux
Good morning, Midwest Wargamers! I have good news, and bad news. In my opinion, the bad news is that I don’t have a Malifaux battle report for you this week. But stay tuned, because battle reports will continue next Wednesday, covering a Shifting Loyalties campaign which has just started up here in the Twin Cities! Now for the good news! …
Filler Games
Off Topic
Filler games! What do I mean by filler games? Well, in our gaming group, one particular game dominates our local gaming store’s table space, so we play smaller scale games while we wait for another player to finish. Or after a long day when we don’t feel like getting out a bunch of models, we play a skirmish game instead.  …
GenCon 2016 Infinity Seminar Notes
Infinity
For those of you who couldn’t make it to GenCon or to the Infinity seminar, but really want the scoop on what’s coming up, this is for you! There is a video uploaded on YouTube that covers that entire thing, but sometimes it can be a wee bit hard to understand between all of the excited screaming, chanting, etc. I …
