Nick and Jeremy finally play a single-commander game of Wyrd Miniatures’ The Other Side. Abyssinia against The Cult of the Burning Man. We give our thoughts and discuss the good and bad of the game. Nick talks about putting an early version of his card-based game, Scorched Earth, on Tabletop Simulator for playtesting.
We talk to Cass Suwinski about his latest Kickstarter for the Dwarf Mine Quest RPG Dungeon Tiles. His company, Tomb Guardians Miniatures, has created a series of metal miniatures for their dungeon crawl RPG. This project is for high resolution 3D printed dungeon tile for the first part of the adventure, the Dwarf Mine. The tiles use an innovative magnet system to connect them, as opposed to clips, and also feature LED lighting details. Check out this immersive and affordable project for your next dungeon crawl!
Unboxing the Warhammer 40k Shadowspear box set. This box leads up to the Vigilus campaign and contains Primaris Ultramarines versus Dark Legion. The Librarian in Phobos armor and the new daemon engine, the Venomcrawler, are the most notable part of the new miniatures. These are all new original sculpts and no repackaged sprues from previous releases. It contains a campaign book and two mini codexes. This refreshes a tired line of chaos space marine sculpts and gives the Phobos keyword more use for the Primaris.
The latest Awaken Realms miniatures boardgame, Nemesis, has the very familiar sci-fi setting of a crew stranded on a xenomorph infested space ship. Although it is cooperative, each player has both a personal and corporate secret agenda that are part of their victory conditions. So when a player tells you that the engines are working or that you are totally headed to Earth, you might want to see for yourself. High-quality components and gorgeous miniatures make this game worth checking out. Don’t believe me? Watch the unboxing!
Is that a xenomorph egg in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?
The latest gigantic boardgame offering from Cool Mini Or Not, based on Adrian Smith’s graphic novel Chronicles of Hate, HATE: the boardgame. It pits player tribes against each other for control of the lands by taking it from other tribes in raids and combat. Does it live up to the hype? Are the miniatures as amazing as we hoped? Find out when we unbox HATE.
Have pre-assembled miniatures (especially from all those Kickstarter boardgames) that are warped or bent and just plain ridiculous looking? Here is a quick tutorial using an electric kettle, a glass of cold water and a glass for hot water to straighten them out. Most of the time it is a miracle worker and will have your minis looking like they did coming out of their molds. Just don’t burn your fingers! Have a look and please give us any comments or questions based on your experience.

We unbox Village Attacks, the latest game from Grimlord Games, makers of channel favorite, Endure the Stars. This tower defense style, cooperative, miniatures boardgame pits you the “monsters” against waves of angry villagers supported by their town heroes, which take the form of RPG character classes of humans.
