The Renegade Open, Nov. 18th-20th
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. Wood is just one of those wonderful materials that can be both rustic and elegant at the same time. Also, unlike plastic, each piece of wood is unique; the grain patterns and shade tell a …
Wyrmwood Gaming: dice tray review
Off Topic
Last week, I was lucky enough to get my hands on a few different accessories from Wyrmwood Games: a tabletop dice tray, a hero vault and a dice vault. Instead of talking a little bit about each item I’d like to focus on one item at a time. For this review, I am going to rate the tabletop dice tray.   …

We are living in the industrial revolution of gaming. Since there is …
Gaming on a Budget
Off Topic
As previously mentioned, I have issues. Specifically, I have a distinct inability to dabble in games. When I started back in to Magic, I built two Standard decks, a Modern deck, got on Magic Online, and now a Commander deck (and I’m working on a second). When I picked up Warmachine, I started in Cygnar, and within two weeks had …
Steamforged customer service
Guildball
This is an ode to Steamforged customer service and how great they are. I bought a metallic Brisket recently and when I looked at her face my heart was broken: her great grin was not present! I did not know what to do, so I mini-ranted on facebook (after all, was that not the reason facebook was created to begin …
Using a nail polish rack for vallejo bottles and metallic bits
Off Topic
I have been using nail polish racks to sort my paints for a while. I use mostly three brands of paint: Vallejo, scale75 and Privateer Press (P3). My OCD has forced me to actually move all the P3 paints onto Vallejo bottles: That’s how my smaller rack, with all the P3 paints, looks. However, this post is not about that, …
