Does This List Make Me Look Fat?

It’s one of those clever little ‘no right answer’ questions you hear on sitcoms all the time; “Honey, does this dress make me look fat?” It’s a great setup and the classy follow-up is something along the lines of:  “I’m pretty sure the dress has nothing to do with it.” “I wouldn’t blame the dress, I think it’s your backside.” Either way it’s a staple of the awkward and hilarious skirmishes in sitcom marriages.  So why do I bring up...

The Key to Next Leveling: LOTG

This article is a mid/high level article on the concept of “Next Leveling” and how to incorporate the concept into your view of Warmachine and Hordes effectively.
