Some pretty huge news dropped this week from DreamForge-Games starting with the announcement of thirteen new kits on their way to retail right now! Available in stores in early February are both 28mm and 15mm sets, the former bringing the Keilerkopf APC, Valkir Heavy Troopers, Valkir Assault Troopers, and Valkir Support Troopers and the latter a Leviathan Mortis and EIGHT different weapon arms for that and the Crusader. The other big news brings all new details and the first images of the Shadokesh faction!
On the weekend of January 9th through the 11th my companions and I braved freezing roads to journey to Austin, TX. We were on our way towards Chupacabracon. Chupacabracon is a small convention in Austin, and this was only the second year it has been held. It’s a convention that’s still in its infancy and is all about the gamer. There were vendors, there was reasonably priced food, and there were a ton of gamers.
A longtime Flash fan, CritToHit guest contributor Kenneth Mahan takes us deep into the latest DC HeroClix set to check out the new Speed Force mechanic! Take a high speed ride along with the heroic and villainous Speedsters of the DC Comics universe with their new ability to build up speed like never before and use it in all sorts of interesting, and sometimes game-breaking, ways.
The Friendly Local Gaming Store (FLGS) is as much a part of the gaming community as are the players. The FLGS is more than just a place to buy games. It is a hang out, a meeting place, and a comfort zone. In exchange for a place to hang out we (as a collective group of gamers) shop there and choose to spend our money there. This is a cornerstone of gaming culture, and as such it is a cornerstone that others are trying to cash in on.
As the year comes to a close HeroClix players are feeling the need for speed... and they’re getting that need met by the Flash! One of the most character-specific expansions to date, the Flash set is chock full of Flashes and other speedsters as well as the traditional villains of the red-suited runners, the Rogues. Add to that some cool sub-themes like A.R.G.U.S., Authority, and Flashpoint and you’ve got something really special. Plus, Flash also has great new mechanics for speed (and countering it).

During Elf Week we got to see the new forest denizens on the way in Games Workshop's new Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies series, and now it's time for the Dwarves of Erebor!
