Getting Squiggy With It: Jaws of Mork Review

Well look what we’ve got here! Squigs are getting the White Dwarf treatment, and boy did this come at the right time.

GH20 Review Part 5: Narrative Play for Competitive Gamers

Everyone has a plan, until they get punched in the mouth ~ Mike Tyson I’m a competitive gamer at heart, but that doesn’t mean I’m only interested in 2000-Point Matched Play in its purest form. It’s certainly what I’m most interested in, but it’s not the be-all and end-all. We were all drawn to thisContinue reading “GH20 Review Part 5: Narrative Play for Competitive Gamers”

GH20 Review Part 2: Anvil of Apotheosis

Everybody loves the Anvil. Seriously, everybody loves the Anvil. And I love everything about it. I love the limitless hobby opportunities it presents. I love the cool, thematic characters you can create. And I love breaking it, and coming up with batshit-crazy, underpointed bullshit.

Durdokk da Biggist

Don’t call it a comeback! The blog has been pretty quiet over the last few weeks: I work in the food industry so it’s been heads down, tails up and let’s keep things moving. The industry has been on the frontline of Coronavirus right around the world, and that shows no signs of changing; includingContinue reading “Durdokk da Biggist”

Matched Play at 1000 Points

Why Bother? Why piss around with smaller games, when you could be playing a proper 2000 point battle? The latter will be more relevant for tournament practice, it opens up more combos and it’s generally where the game is at. I hear ya. But even though 2000 points games are at the heart of theContinue reading “Matched Play at 1000 Points”
