Tamiya 1/24 Scale Volkswagen 1300 Beetle, 1966 Model [Unboxing & Pre-Assembly Review]

My earliest memory of a car ride was that of a hot, sunny day and how much havoc it was wrecking on my five-year-old tushy. For you see, my cousins and I had been bundled onto the PVC-covered backseat of a Volkswagen Beetle. So there we were, bouncing up and down, trying hard to minimize contact with the uncomfortably warm plastic seats as my aunt's beige-colored Beetle pulled slowly away from

RDTN Episode 162: Too Many Bones-Undertow, Master of Wills, Kitchen Rush, GoT Expansion, Quiver

We are back from our break and ready to tackle another year of board gaming podcasting. Or as a listener pointed out to us, making background noise. We love comments like this because they truly keep us grounded and never take offense to them. Anyway, in this episode we discuss our events over the holidays, do a Flying Squirrel segment, and give impressions of two games that made it to the table. Master of Wills by Stormcrest Games is a deck building card game that has a twist on winning the game. Your score is determined at the end of the eighth round based on the number of citizens you have on your side of the board. When you pick a Citizen card at the start of your turn, they will have abilities on them that will impact the game by allowing you to play special cards from your faction deck that you built prior to the start. There are different factions in the game allowing for increased replayability. This one is straight forward, but very tactical and made for fun games. Too Many Bones: Undertow was the ne

Review: Titandeath by Guy Haley

The holiday season, for me, means a lot of travel, which means less hobby time, and my mother-in-law’s kitchen is not the best place to do catch-up coding for various projects for the blog. Which means a lot of time to read. Fortunately for me, Titandeath, the latest installment of the slowly-winding-down Horus Heresy series was just released, and given I love me some Titans, this seemed like an excellent way to occupy myself on a couple long flights. And since the Horus Heresy series is now of the size where many people are (correctly) picking and choosing what to read, I thought a review might come in handy. Spoilers and Opinions Ahead In my mind, there is no such thing as an objective review of an artistic project, and I’m not going to attempt to review the book without spoilers, as many of my opinions on it rest on particular bits of plot and text. So what follows is both opinion and laced with spoilers. You’ve been warned. It will not however be a play-by-play of the book, just a revie

Gaslands is the brainchild of Mike Hutchinson. He is a gamer and modeler who started writing wargames at the tender age of 15.

All money goes to Mars. While some resent those that betray their fellows to work for a Martian corporation, many simply cannot afford ideals. Television continues under the global control of The Network, a nest of greedy and traitorous Martian collaborators. The Network shows a...continue reading
