Gift guide for the tabletop roleplaying game fan

It’s that time of year again. The time when we are forced to wrack our brains to think of gifts that will show our loved ones just how much they mean to us. With that in mind, we thought we’d help out by giving you a few ideas for things to buy your nearest and dearest this year. While some of our suggestions are (ahem) created by Iron Crown, we’ve also included a number of items that we just think are cool and are secretly hoping someone will buy for us. So without further ado, here is our gift guide for the tabletop roleplaying game fan in your life:   Shadow World: Haalkitaine & The Court of Rhakhaan   The Imperial city of Rhakhaan is teeming with intrigue and adventure, from scandals in the nobility, to criminals roaming the dark alleys, to terrors in the sewers… and most terrifying: a dark conspiracy of evil!   Haalkitaine & The Court of Rhakhaan (Haalkitaine for short) is the latest release from Iron Crown Enterprises and another brilliant addition to the Shadow World setting.

Dark Times in Santa’s Village

I kind of dig Christmas lights, even though I never put up anything more avant garde than a medium sized, dignified Christmas wreath, myself. I don’t see the payoff. That’s not to say I don’t like looking at them. My immediate neighborhood in VA has been pretty muted when it comes to giant Christmas light displays. I’ve seen some ambitious setups over the years, some of them taking up palatial city blocks, some more inspired than others. Displays come and go, and the technology changes constantly– from the lit-from-within plastic nativity scenes and Santa and reindeer from my childhood (and those bigass indoor/outdoor bulbs.. nobody uses them any more) to today’s giant blowup vinyl figures, laser lighting, projection backgrounds, and computer controlled dancing lights. It’s like keeping up with an arms race. So, yeah, I think it’s kind of trippy to look at, but Christmas is more internalized in my case. With that said, I was kind of missing finding a gi

A project for my daughter

Over the last few weeks I've been working on a project for my daughter.As of today I've finished it.  My idea for the project was to paint some figures and give my daughter some encouragement and strength.  I know it's sappy but I'm a dad and I guess that's what we do. Right?Anyway, below are the Dark Sword Miniatures I've painted for her and the diorama I put together for her. The Dark Sword Miniatures are nice sculpts. They have some great detail for 28mm.  They were all painted with Artist acrylics.The RogueThe WizardThe KnightUnder each figure I wrote what I thought are the strengths for each character.The diorama. I'm going to wrap this and give it to her for Christmas.

Our Warhammer Quest: Blackstone Fortress Questions

When Warhammer Quest saw a resurgence with Silver Tower back in 2016, it seemed to be met with universal applause. Not just due to one of the beloved Games Workshop series seeing a revival but for the sheer value crammed into the box. Packaged within were a flurry of hero characters, a plethora of monsters to battle, all resulting in hours upon hours of cooperative fun. Silver Tower is possibly my most-played boxed game from Games Workshop. However, we now see a departure from the fantasy setting of Age of Sigmar as we are plunged into the Blackstone Fortress. The first 40K outing for Warhammer Quest set my imagination into overdrive as I span out scenarios in my head for my friends and I. What characters will come within the box? What enemies will be included? Will there be any new sculpts?! These and more questions swam within my mind. I’m going to pose some of these questions to you now, in the hopes to build excitement but also intrigue for the seemingly imminent release. Who Could Be the Heroes? O
