Battle Reports
  Alpharion here again with another battle report. This time turning the clock back 10,000 years to wage war in the greatest civil war ever fought, The Horus Heresy.  The game was against my buddy Jason, who owns the beautifully painted Blood Angels army.

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 …
Why Play Infinity
Infinity
  The most important question anyone can ask before they lunge into a new game; “why should I play it?” Hopefully I can help you make that plunge or at least become more cultured about another game you might run across in your wargaming adventures: Infinity is a 28mm scale science fiction skirmish game set several hundred years into the …

Off Topic

Warhammer 40k: Eldar vs Dark Eldar 1,000 points

This was initially planned on being a 2v2 2,000 points to a side match, however one player could not make it to the game. Despite the mild setback we decided to continue …
