There’s Got To Be Some Kind Of Good Convergence Pun, Right?

June 18, 2013

Alright, I missed the last two weeks I know. Which is why I’m starting this week with an announcement: I’m dropping my “every Tuesday” schedule. Now I’m basically just going to post stuff as it comes to me. I’m still going to try and keep a post a week, but I’m not making any promises. […]

Religion And Games

May 28, 2013

So I’ve been away for a little bit, sorry about that. I’ve been dealing with some stuff and getting my life sorted out so I haven’t really been able to focus on this thing for the last several weeks. Anyway; I’m back and with a very touchy discussion that I certainly hope doesn’t spark a […]

Because I Got High Elves, Because I Got High Elves, Because I Got High Elves; la dadadada

April 30, 2013

Sorry, couldn’t resist. So this week I don’t have anything else lined up(it’s Valhalla for us folks at BTP so I haven’t been keeping up on the news lately), but GW was kind enough to grace us with some new High Elf models since that’s coming out next week. So since I don’t feel like […]

The Fear Of Not Playing

April 23, 2013

I’ve noticed something over the years in this hobby, and I’m starting to notice it more and more as I get more involved on a personal level(between work, this blog and writing three freaking game systems); people are terrified of not getting to play games. So much so to the point where they will actually¬†subjugate […]

The Right Scale Means Everything

April 16, 2013

Let me start this week’s entry by offering my condolences to the people and city of Boston after yesterday’s attacks. My family is originally from the Boston area and I’ve been many times, so I do feel some connection to that city despite having grown up in Maryland. Still; it pains me that this sort […]

This Was Going To Be A Deep Discussion About Kickstarter But I’m Lazy So Here’s Some Tau Stuff

April 9, 2013

OK so first thing’f first: yes I know I missed last week. Tuesdays are crazy hectic because I basically get up, get ready for work, go to work for 6 1/2 to 7 hours, come home for 10 minutes and then head up to Orem to play Flames of War all night long. In fact […]

Bringing Down The Price

March 26, 2013

I know exactly what everyone wants me to talk about, but I’m not going to do it. GW is just being GW and tossing around more hollow BS reasons to try and screw over the many people who have supported them over the years and it’s just not worth my time. So instead let’s talk […]

The 3D Printer Debate Needs To Die

March 19, 2013

Seriously, is anyone else sick of this damn debate yet? It seems like every time someone brings up the fact of how expensive this hobby is some idiot brings up “well 3D printers will destroy the miniatures industry anyway, so all these greedy companies will be out of business soon.” No. That’s not how it […]

I May Need New Pants

February 5, 2013

Because I’m having a massive amount of nerdgasms I’ve been having the last few days. Seriously; the news coming out lately about games I enjoy is staggering and mind blowing. So as to not drag this out any longer than need be; let’s start with news from Templecon from Privateer Press. First up: NEW WARMACHINE […]

Motivation Is Important.

January 22, 2013

Something I notice a lot when discussing RPGs with people(I don’t get to play any because all anyone ever wants to play is Pathfinder and no thanks on that), is that characters never seem to have any motivation. I’ve discussed before how if you aren’t roleplaying in a RPG then you are scientifically proven to […]
