    Garbage (or another man’s treasure)

    It’s been awhile since I’ve written. I’ve been incredibly busy, and I haven’t had that much time to hobby lately. I have been experimenting with all the little treasures (otherwise known as garbage). This week’s craft brought to you by Elmer’s Clear Glue. (Not really, we don’t have any sponsorship, and I’m not writing for…

  • Frostgrave: Mortal Enemies

    Frostgrave: Mortal Enemies

    I just finished reading the newest Frostgrave supplement. This is a game that I was not aware of for the last few years, but one that I am very interested in getting on the table. I am working on some wizards, and some terrain right now. I am also working on using some EVA foam…

  • When Nightmares Come (Osprey Bluebook series)

    When Nightmares Come (Osprey Bluebook series)

    Last week I picked up a copy of When Nightmares Come by Patrick Todoroff.  It is a game of modern supernatural investigation.   Think Ghostbusters, Stranger Things, Scooby Doo.  The concept seems fun, and the rules seem pretty simple.    There are three character types, a warrior, a wizard, and a tinker/mechanic.  It uses a dice…

  • Trader’s Galaxy Tribes

    Trader’s Galaxy Tribes

    I’m all about supporting miniature companies that also release their wares as 3d files. I love some metal miniatures. I like plastic miniatures. But I love 3d printed minis. They are just cheaper to print, and I can digitally kitbash them as needed. Today I thought I would review the latest releases from Trader’s Galaxy.…

  • Failed 3D Prints

    Failed 3D Prints

    You ever get 20 hours into a 3d print and then bam! A pile of spaghetti. Yeah, me too. Luckily, I have found a tool called Meshmixer. Meshmixer is a great little tool for fixing these things. I actually use it for quite a bit of things. Some of the creators I follow, love having…

  • Madox Historical Miniatures: A Review

    Madox Historical Miniatures: A Review

    For many years, when I talked of miniature wargaming, I only knew Warhammer and Warhammer 40K. Being a young, punk kid, this was probably from a lack a knowledge and care. Now that I am an older, punk kid, I have found a whole genre of games, and books that I was not prepared for.…

  • Crystal Caverns

    Crystal Caverns

    As anyone who reads the site regularly knows, I’m a huge 3d printer. I don’t devote a lot of time to hobbying. And I can let my printer run, while I’m working, spending time with my family, or with my God. I prefer to spend my hobby time painting miniatures. Of course the point of…

  • Traveller/Stargrave

    Traveller/Stargrave

    If you know anything about me from reading about my random adventures here on SoF, I really enjoy Stargrave/Silver Bayonet/etc. Actually, I’ve never played Frostgrave, but it’s on my list of things to acquire this year. As you may or may not know Joy of Wargaming on the YouTubes has just started a brand new…

  • Mythic Americas Aztec & Nations Starter Set

    Mythic Americas Aztec & Nations Starter Set

    Nothing says Valentine’s Day like little toy soldiers killing each other on a tiny battlefield. I picked up the Mythic America’s Aztec and Tribal Nations Starter Set for said holiday. As with most reviews I do, there were some good things and some bad things. A couple of things with the Amazon listing. The models…

  • Mythic Earth (formerly Mythic Americas)

    Mythic Earth (formerly Mythic Americas)

    I was watching the Joy of Wargaming YouTube channel as I am wont to do. It is a great channel, and Mr. Wargaming is a really swell guy. For some reason he was in New Jersey, and found Mythicos Studios. Which is a wargaming store and studio. They produce the game Mythic Earth (formerly known…
