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.  …

Infinity
Last month, a lot of people helped me promote Muse on Minis Wargaming Con so I wrote a piece about generosity among wargamers. Well, funny thing happened to me recently, I was approached by Paul Jacob Huck, one of the founders of The Renegade Open, and he asked if I’d be willing to do a shout-out for his convention. I told him I …
Generosity among Wargamers
Off Topic
  I think the Wargaming community is way better than most other hobby communities. Sure, we have our problems too, but in the last month I’ve had so many positive encounters with different wargamers and companies that I think you’ll agree we are pretty awesome. If you follow our Facebook  then you’ve probably seen me promoting Muse on Minis  Wargaming convention. I ran the …
QC Custom Woodworks review: X-Wing Templates
Off Topic
If you’ve read any of my previous product reviews, either the Wargaming Woodworker or Wyrmwood Games, then you know that I’m a sucker for wooden accessories.
