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 …
Hunter’s Mark Article II: Play The Underdog
Warmachine & Hordes
Play The Underdog One of the earliest lessons I received from playing in a competitive meta was the importance of playing the underdog.

This will be my first go at a tactics guide; I thank you in …

Omega Leader FAQ and Tournament Builds
X-Wing
We are in the midst of X-Wing Store Championship season. While this time of year is full of exciting new squad builds it is also full of difficult rules questions. No pilot has been more present in the meta and caused more questions than Omega Leader. Despite being released late 2015 I still see new questions about this TIE/fo every week. Most …
Malifaux: “Welcome to Malifaux!”, Starting a Faction
Malifaux
As a Henchman, I see a lot of people struggle with what to get once they set their sights on a faction. The seven factions of Malifaux each have their own identity with some bits of crossover. When delving into a faction though, there is still a sense of intimidation because crew boxes are not created equal; they merely provide …
