Thin Lizzies - A Starblood Stalkers Review

Thin* Lizzies (*One is thicc) Hello! I’m not dead, I’ve just been doing other things* for a while. But I’m back, and this time it’s a bit of a different article.   I promise I’ll get around to doing the backlog of Gitz related Universal Card Reviews, and the boards review from the Direchasm and Beastgrave Boxes (I turn my back on the Arena Mortis ones, with their sinful, non adjacent starting hexes). * Adeptus Titanicus, and Star Wars Legion things mostly, also work when I can’t help it. Today however. I’m going to talk about dinosaurs; how they differ from the mushroom-men I love so dearly; and why they’ve turned my head a little (Okay, a lot, but don’t let Drizgit hear that) The Starblood Stalkers are the (*counts on fingers*) fourth warband for Direchasm, and the first to really pique my interest. Having played a bunch of Magores and Wurmspat, I don’t hate the Ravagers, but they’re a tad generic, and finishing deployment with 3 starting hexes exposed to the elements just feels… ungr

It's been 84 years....

  Hi everyone, and yes, it's been a long time between drinks as they say, but we FINALLY have some new cards to talk about! Yay! As normal this isn't the place to get in-depth, quality (or) insight into how the two warbands that accompany the new cards play, or even what they do. We're here, as good goblins should, to pick out shiny baubles that Gitz would find useful from the refuse.  Broadly, these cards are utility in nature. Which is to say there are few here that will dramatically alter your playstyle and few that are "build around" cards that spawn new deck archetypes. But there are a bunch that not only look interesting on their own, but also start to make some older cards, including some recently added to the Restricted list, look increasingly appealing.  Before I get started, please excuse the random order of the cards. Blogger is a pig to adjust photos on, so apologies, you'll just have to deal with that Spoil me, like you spoil your French Cards Amb

Team Effort – Why the next changes to the tournament rules need to go far beyond cards and boards

Hi everyone! I’ve been spending so many activations passing lately, I’m pretty sure I could score Is It Asleep?! But I’m here, and I’m alive, which, in these uncertain times nothing to take for granted.   Apologies for not writing in so long, I’ve been working from home, and for some reason that’s completely sapped my energy to write.   I think missing out to an hour of podcasts to and from work might have contributed to it, as has the distinct lack of content being released, but primarily I think it’s really hard to get opinionated about plastic toys when the world appears to be dissolving around us. Nevertheless, I’m here and I’m writing now, it’s not about the latest FAR list though. I’ll hopefully going to get that later this week. Today I’m going to talk about something I feel is much more important. The tournament rules. We've seen a bit of this lately... It’s mostly physical With most of the world in one form of lockdown or another, it’s been curious to see the
