Battlefield Project: A Quick and Dirty Review with Followup.

I’m having a look at the resin bases from Kickstarter’s Battlefield Project. These are basically First World War style Trenches that fit models and units such as Cygnar’s Trenchers, Khador’s Winterguard, and Mercenary units such as the Steelhead riflemen. In this follow up to the previous review I go over a couple details about the bases that I missed during the first look. BATTLEFIELD PROJECT:  [Click here to...

Using the Force…

Friends, Romans, Countrymen, lend me your ears.  I’ve been meaning to address this topic for a while.  A LONG while.  The problem is, it’s complicated, and at the same time it’s foundational to the games we all love.  I’ve let the topic simmer in the odd cranial brain-brew I’ve got going, and now I think it’s ready to share.  Per my usual disclosures: This is a beginner to high-level article on core mechanics.  I’ll be using...

Must Have Balance Daniel San… Focus… Power…

This is a mid-level article on game balance.  I’m going to talk about a few frameworks like the Pareto Efficient Curve and how to view these in concert with your knowledge about Warmachine and Hordes. I’ve asked myself the question a hundred times over; “Why do I like board games so damn much?”  I’m not an overtly introspective person, but there’s something at the heart of gaming that truly brings me joy.  My current (and...
