TUTORIAL: Iyanden Wraithguard

Do you like robots? How about yellow space-elf robots? Well then you're in luck, because so do I! I've always had a soft spot for these unfortunate Eldar and with the ease of contrast paints it seemed like the perfect time to tackle them in a step by step painting tutorial!

What's Old is New Again: The Old World and Movement Trays

It's no secret that The Old World game is coming, and probably sometime in the next year or two at this point. We've even had quite a bit confirmed about it, but there's still a lot of mystery surrounding the return to the world-that-was. A few things we know for sure is that it will be 28mm, so existing armies and models will be compatible, and that it will be on square bases again. With all of the new stuff for AoS though that will seemingly be compatible with the Old World, part of me wonders about how the square bases will be implemented. Join me, on my journey into the speculative for this new game!

Why You Should Collect and Play: Beasts of Chaos

Do you hear the siren call of the bestial wild? Then the Beasts of Chaos might be for you! These true children of Chaos have long been a staple of the Warhammer universe, and in my opinion are one of the coolest looking armies. With a new battletome, updated lore, new rules, and a brand new Beastlord model, now is the perfect time to jump in. I even have a special guest contributor today in the form of the one and only Eat Bray Love to show off his amazing army and talk a bit about what makes the models so cool!

REVIEW: Arks of Omen - Grand Tournament Mission Pack (From an AoS Perspective)

Although I started out this hobby by playing 40k back in the mists of time known as 3rd edition, I've been primarily an AoS player for the last few years. Since 9th edition launched I've been slowly dipping my toe back into gaming on the 40k side and went to my first tournament this past Fall using the Nephilim book. Now a new Grand Tournament Mission Pack is upon us, with changes to how the Matched Play version of the game is played. Instead of a standard review of the book, I'm going to instead look at it through the lens of an AoS player. So, what does the Arks of Omen pack contain?

REVIEW: Arks of Omen - Abaddon

The latest narrative series of supplements for 40k is here in the form of the Arks of Omen! This will be a series of books, with each on focusing on a different character, starting off with the big bad himself, Abaddon. So what does this book contain within its damned covers and what evils does it portend for the Imperium of Man?

Gray Matter Gaming Mats and Magnet Trays Review

I'm a big fan of local businesses, so when Gray Matter Gaming, based out of Metro Detroit in Michigan, asked me if I would like to take a look at their battle mats and movement trays I couldn't pass up the opportunity. This company took two staples of modern gaming and put their own spin on them to introduce elements to increase the ease of use by the average gamer. So how do they stack up against the competition?
