Zombie of the Month- March 2015- Zombie Horde (Male) by Wargames Factory

   Okay, so, I have this beautiful population of awesome female zombies from the Wargames Factory Zombie Vixens set, but now I have a problem, because now the gender population balance of my zombie apocalypse is off. I know, who worries about these things? Hey, it's good to at least be able to create a realistic population if you want to, right? So, what's a necromancer to do?
   The solution is obvious, of course, go back and buy the Wargames Factory Male zombies. So here they are!

Psyche of a Gamer: Fluff, is it important?

Recently Second Class Elitist, Ali Alcatraz and I were talking about a conversation he had had with a designer in the miniature wargaming industry.  The crux of the conversation was about whether gamers care about the story, or fluff.  2CE was on the side that story matters, and the designer was on the side that gamers don't care about story.  So while the three of us were discussing this point, I had a bit of epiphany.  Story not only matters, it defines the game for all of us, we just don't realize it.

One wild ride...

So back at TempleCon, Merek (after his win in the Dropzone Commander Tournament), Second Class Elitist, and I had the opportunity to play a game called SkidMarks that will be launching on Kickstarter in the near future.  After a full day playing games, and meeting new faces, it was a chance to just have some fun with a new game.  Below I'm going to try to give you an insight into why I think the game was a lot of fun, and worth your investment.

Another smiley face!

Well, Mr. Quartermain was a little too busy to get up the official WIP Wednesday this week. If he had, you would have noticed my pile was a little smaller:

That's because I finished up a few guys (and one tough little girl).

And what does that net me? Another smiley face on the painting board! Woohoo!

...wait. That can't be right. That smiley face is in my Zombies and Survivors column! Oh, no! That won't do. The Zombie Master can't be out of zombies! This is a catastrophe! A crisis, even!

...but wait, what is this in my mailbox?

...Whew. That was close.
