Promethium Forge review, MDF terrain
Off Topic
Recently, our 40k group has had an influx of a ton of new members, and we have had a shortage on good terrain, so I took it upon myself to get some MDF terrain to help fill out the tables. I stumbled upon Promethium Forge on etsy, and was immediately intrigued by their Industrial Chem Tank Terrain. I put in …
When is it wrong to call a judge?
Off Topic
For some people calling a judge during a match feels wrong so they won’t do it. For others, calling  a judge will only be used as a last resort because they believe that the very nature of calling a judge goes against sportsmanship. Or they might just want to avoid that feeling of confrontation altogether. I’m here to discuss why …
Throwback Thursday: Pirates of the Cursed Seas
Off Topic
Not so long ago, Midwest Wargaming reviewed (by battle report) Blood and Plunder, a Historical game from Firelock Games. Blood and Plunder was already a game on my radar, since it has many things I love: Pirates; Opponents of Pirates; Pirate Ships; flipping cards; and little plastic soldiers. But, the more I learn about the game, the more I focus on …
Deepwars by Antimatter Games Review
Off Topic
Today we’re going to take a look at Antimatter Games DeepWars, a 28mm miniature war  game of underwater combat set in an alternate Earth in the 17th Century. I’d like to give a shout out to Eric over at Antimatter Games for sending us their game for us to take a look at. Deepwars is actually Antimatter’s second game. The …
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 …
