Free Prize Inside! - Review of the New White Dwarf Format

So, this was my first White Dwarf issue purchase since, IDK, early high school?

I bought it because $9 for a magazine and a $30 model (that I could sell to make back the cost if I didn't like it), seemed completely risk-free. Plus, I do generally enjoy GW's board games and wanted to check that out.

Telling it Again - Kingdom Death First Story

A quick one, today-- I've done a few of the First Story sets by now, but I think this is the best I've gotten the lion-- my client asked me to include a light source on the base, which had me shifting the angle of the source light strictly to under-lighting (with general allowances for what made an interesting look), and the result, I think, was a pretty intimidating lion.

The Six P's - Kingdom Death Strategy Guide

Okay, this is a bit of a weird one for me. I'm trying to write a tactics article about a game where you're fighting a cardboard computer instead of other players, and trying to not spoil anything. I guess that makes this my first strategy guide?

This will focus on the early game and some tips for planning ahead, because by the time you're through the mid-game, you'll be pretty well-versed in the system, so this is mostly about getting off the ground and setting up a strong settlement/hunting party.

Grumblins! - Silver Tower Scuttlings

A quick little post today, the Grot Scuttlings are some of the better-designed basically snap-fit models I've run across, in the tradition of GW making (IMHO) better board games than miniature games, when done right. I gave these guys a variety of blacks and browns to get a hodgepodge effect that I think mostly came across.
