The Empire (of Dust) Strikes Back
There is an old joke that says if you ever finish painting your last miniature, you'll die.  If that is the case, then I figure I'll live forever, even if it will be as a dry, desiccated skeleton slowly painting away every night. Last September, I was so ex...

Who is the Rules Committee? Kris Kaspner
They have been whispered about in the dark recesses of the internet, their names cursed and praised at game tables around the world.  But just who are the enigmatic Kings of War Rules Committee? Are they a hooded sect of gaming masters manipulating our favo...

Wayback Machine: Drunk Dwarfs
It was my first Adepticon in 2012, and I was sitting in the Warhammer Fantasy hall. Since I had never been before, I made sure I left my Saturday open so I would have plenty of time to visit the vendor hall. Plus the championship just sounded a bit too cutt...

Origins Afterward
Tournaments weren't the only thing going on at Origins - far from it.  The Ohio War Kings ran over thirty events at Origins this year. We had a bit of a snafu with event registration however.  I will own this, as I was the one who submitted the events.  Whi...

Tournaments at Origins 2017
So another Origins has come and gone.  This was a more challenging one than before (but that is another post).  Instead, let's talk about the fantastic pair of tournaments we had. via GIPHY The  Ohio War Kings  have begun the 'interesting' transition to a '...

First Warpath Demo Army
In some circles I've come to be known as the "Kings of War guy".  This probably has to do with me running my learn to play sessions at Origins and Gencon for the past three years. I do play some other games.  Or at least I try to be prepared to demo them wh...
