Not your father's meta!

The interwebs are full of the meta-massives. The armies and builds that are sweeping the country. And I have no fear of them!

Dark Heresy: Making a Character and Getting Started

For those of you in our immense worldwide audience unfamiliar with it, Dark Heresy is Fantasy Flight Games' roleplaying game set in the dark future of the Warhammer 40,000 universe. Originally published by the venerable Black Library itself, it was licensed to FFG and the folks there have done an amazing job continuing the tradition of quality BL established. Dark Heresy is the first in a (so far) three game interchangeable system. In Dark Heresy, players take the part of an Inquisitor's retinue - charged with rooting out corruption in the Imperium and ever vigilant for the taint of the heretic, the traitor, the mutant, and the xenos.

The Art of Board Control

I have recently picked up Malifaux(who'd of guessed, right?) and I've been listening to podcasts and reading the forums, generally feeding my gamer ocd. One crew I have heard a lot about is the Dreamer. The Dreamer's main trick is burying his nightmares(basically taking them out of play), moving off somewhere else, and bringing his crew back in. There is more to it than that, but this brought up a point that I see in several games, Board Control.

Its GO time!

Time to set your mind to the task. That guy over there, he ain't so tough. That army is unbeatable... psh, as if. That uber-unit: it's LUNCH TIME!
It's time to look at what you know, and what you think.

Upcoming Stuff

On a hunch, I tested the capabilities of our website with regards to formatting, and discovered I could just cut and paste the events calendars straight from!!
So below are a mad grip of events from the Gryphons and Stonebridge Meetups.  This is something I plan to do pretty regularly since it is so bleeping easy.  Read on, knowledge is power!

Inside Codex: Grey Knights

Okay, what do we have here?

First of all, the cover art's just okay.  I doubt it will discourage anyone from picking it up, but I am underwhelmed.  The figure foreshortening is a little odd, causing the towering might of the Emperor's final creation to look a little like chibi SD Grey Knights, but that is just an opinion.   Moving on!

The interior is gorgeous. less for any uniqueness of layout as for the illustrations within.  The illustrators really knocked it out of the park, and I wonder why a color (or even black and white!) version of the illustration on pg. 20 wasn't used as the cover.

Never say 'die'.

     At what point do you call it?  When do you say enough is enough, shake hands, and walk away?
Me? Long after I should, if at all.
