2016 Year in Review: Bolt Action

This year in review is getting long in the tooth, so I'm going to try to finish it by Monday. 2016 was again, pretty great for wargames, but not so great for almost everything else. Bolt Action, a game which has gained a huge following both in Michigan and around the world, had a second edition released to a ton of anticipation.

2016 Year in Review: Warmachine / Hordes

2016 didn't really let up before it ended - my entire family was sick, including a trip to the ED at 3 a.m. Consequently I wasn't able to finish my series before 2016 ended, so here we are in 2017!

2016 was a pretty huge year for some of our favorite games, Warmachine / Hordes included. Privateer Press launched 'Mark Three' of the game, promising an All New War.

2016 Year in Review: Dark Age

Continuing our Year in Review, I wanted to offer up a new game to us, but one that has been around quite a while. Dark Age is a 32mm true-skirmish (only 5-10 models needed) that is based on the art of Gerald Brom.

2016 Year in Review: Star Wars Destiny

In case you missed it, I've covered Games Workshop and video games so far in our review - today is the newest newcomer to our list, Star Wars Destiny. I've talked a bit about Destiny before - so today I just wanted to talk about the deck I'm working on. I'm a bit of a card game newbie so please forgive if I am making some rookie mistakes here.

2016 Year in Review: Games Workshop

My dissatisfaction (and indeed, many gamers') with Games Workshop over the last few years has been pretty well voiced. They raised prices all the time, killed the Old World, and continued to offer players a sub-standard product with their rules. With so many new options on the market, it seemed hard to be a fan.

2016 Wargaming Year in Review

By all accounts, 2016 has been a pretty awful year. So many people are ready for a new year - and hopefully 2017 will be better. In regards to wargaming, though, 2016 was pretty awesome.

Delve into the Isorian Senatex

We continue to have a blast with our Antares Initiative in the club. I've been working on the painting for my Isorians and wanted to share.
