Zombie of the Month- January 2015- Plague Zombies by Mantic Games

   Well, a new year, a new batch of snarling undead. If you think the ZOM class picture was scary last year, wait 'till you see what I intend to get on the table by the end of THIS year. I have some insane ideas planned out for zombie entertainment. But alas, the big crazy stuff will have to wait until after our double-campaign schedule lightens up.
   In the meantime, though, I still have plenty of assorted zombies, either already in my possession, or still coming at me via Kickstarters. I'm going to start off with one that our regular readers may have already caught a glimpse of in Zomtober. Even though they have already had their picture online, you know I like to give every zombie his spotlight. So, here it is:

Meet the Crew- the Edofleini

   Space squids are people, too, and we really wanted you to be able to meet all the characters in the Counterblast campaign. So here it is. Meet the crew of the "invading" Edofleini ship (hey, it's all a matter of perspective, right?)

Hidden Agendas Campaign, Game One is live!

We apologize for the upload delay, still working out some kinks in our system.  However, the first game in our Warzone: Resurrection Campaign is ready to go!

Hidden Agendas: Proditious HotSS Character Introduction

Due to public request, we will be creating and fielding Heroes of the Solar System characters for each of our Warlords in the Hidden Agendas Warzone: Resurrection campaign. With the voice talents of Neuicon, the Warlord of the Dark Legion comes to life...

The Terror from Outer Space: Fly me to the Moon, A Narrative

Hey there everyone, here's a little bit of an intro teaser for the Counterblast campaign.  To borrow the immortal words of a man well known from the period:  Imagine if you will, a small strange man.  In a small strange ship. A ship about to encounter something unexpected...

Hidden Agendas: Dark Legion: WIFM

In the history of Mutant Chronicles and Warzone the nature of Cybertronic has been in varying states of question.  At times, they have been clearly pawns of the Dark Legion and at others the waters more murky.  In this iteration, however, Cybertronic are clearly a human corporation (well kind of) and there are no ties to the Dark Legion.  And thus the reasons for the Dark Legion to pick a fight, become more clear...

The Sunday News Returns... Now in video

That's Right folks, the Sunday news is back.  And it's in living color, or video at least.  Watch Belgarath97 and Second Class Elitist talk about the topics of the day.  And we promise nothing about deflate-gate.

From Box to Table: The Brotherhood Starter Box from Warzone Resurrection

Okay, so...why not just a regular unboxing article? To be perfectly honest, it's because GMort covers most of the same games we do, and his Unboxed series is just too good to try to follow. Seriously, go read them. On top of that, Johan also does an amazing job with unboxings on his blog as well. Instead, I wanted to take a slightly different track, and discuss models going literally from sprue to table ready. Today we're going to look at the Brotherhood Starter Box for Warzone: Resurrection from Prodos Games.

Guardians of Eden: Character Review

In a slight departure from our regular coverage, I got a chance to read some character backgrounds for a new game coming to market.  That game is Guardians of Eden, and it's being developed by Word Forge Games and it's managing Director and Co-Founder Mark Rapson.  For some of you that name will be familiar, as he is also one of the main people behind Warzone Resurrection, a game we should all be aware of by now.  Guardians is described as a role-playing board game, so knowing the characters is important.  So without further ado on to the story...

One More for the Cabinet: Bombshell Miniatures M4R1A Bot

Okay, so, I have a ton of models I need to finish up for the campaign(s) LXG is getting ready to drop. So, it makes sense the first model I finish of the New Year is one of those, right?  Not a chance.  See, I got ahold of the Metropolis inspired figured from Bombshell, and, well, everything else has to wait.

The LXG Painting Board

   Ok, most of you probably know by now that we have a "painting board" at LXG Headquarters. For those of you who haven't seen it, it is, quite simply, a dry erase board with a spreadsheet containing the members of our club, and the models we own for each game that need to be painted. The numbers are points which are allocated as follows, quoting Second Class Elitist (2CE) from his New Year's Eve Resolutions article: "Our points system is based on model base size: 25mm/30mm is 1, 40mm or cavalry is 2, 50mm is 4, and vehicles are 10. Terrain is based on similar numbers, but with a lot more leeway to trying to figure them out."
   Since 2CE brought up New Year's Hobby Resolutions, and he and I both made painting related ones, I think it's high time we enforced some culpability on this painting board by letting you, our readers, periodically see our progress. To that end, I am showing you the Painting Board as it stood at midnight, December 31st, 2014. I will then introduce to you any changes we are making to the painting board for 2015, and try to post an update article periodically to let you know how things are progressing.

Finding My Hobby: Hobby Resolutions

Here in America, not sure about elsewhere in the world, it is tradition to make a resolution to change something in our lives for the positive.  Common resolutions include losing weight, quiting smoking, treating myself better, etc.  When I worked for GW we used to make hobby resolutions.  In that vein, I'm going to put down my hobby resolutions in writing for you to hold me accountable to.  So here we go...

It's the New Year, and there's one thing that this time of year always brings about:  Resolutions.  They're a natural extension of the change of the calendar, and many people use them in their Hobby as well.  Here's a quick look at how, why, and how not to make them.
