Nagash Unboxing

So, I stopped by Pegasus Games today and picked up the mighty Nagash, greatest necromancer to have ever lived. For those that don’t get much into Warhammer fluff, let’s just say he pretty much single handedly created the Vampire Counts. Pretty awesome huh? Yeah, a guy like that just can’t be put down.

Gaming Spotlight: Tzolk’in: The Mayan Calendar

T’Zolkin – Check out those Gears on the Game Board!

One of my favorite board games ever, I was able to play it again this weekend and it reminded me just how cool this game is. The game has a loose, Mayan theme. The best part of this game, in my opinion, is the board. There is a lot going on with the board, but it’s pretty intuitive and every turn you interact with it by moving the board. The board is made up of giant gears that all interconnect. While still being a worker placement/earn resources type game, the dynamic board and great art adds to the feel and theme of the game allowing players to immerse them into the experience of the game. This is something that I find so lacking in so many great games, particularly these worker placement games.

Episode 54: Popular Ramblings

Episode 54

In this episode, our hosts get back together to talk about what drives armies to be popular. Joined by Eric, the StoneMonk, who is a new recruit to the Madison Warhammer Fantasy scene, the hosts ramble about what attracts both new players and veterans to an army. Also highlighted on are some of the business considerations that may come into play and/or drive what GW works to release.

Also covered is a recap of Conesy’s Gen Con experience. Everything from sculpting to Malifaux and True Dungeon. It was a blast and not enough time to really cover it all!

2 Vampire Character Conversions

IMG_20140813_162702722_HDRI don’t think there has been a podcast that I mentioned these guys on besides maybe saying I had more plans for conversions after the hellsteed vampire.  I’ll probably mention them in Episode 53.  These are two vampire models I did some conversions on that were pretty quick and easy but made for some really cool unique models.

Gaming Spotlight: Alien Frontiers

Alien Frontiers is a board game of with a theme of colonization of a planet. You are in a race with your other players in the game to complete your colonization of the planet before they do. Overall, the game is a solid game and seemed best with 4-5 players in our experience.
