Today, Pariah Nexus was released on the Warhammer+ streaming service. It seems to be about the Adepta Sororitas (or at least one of them, anyway) and the Necrons, so I've been excited about the series since it was teased months ago. I enjoyed the first episode, and this is my review of it, arbit...

Before there was Curse of Strahd (CoS), possibly the most famous 5e adventure, there was the 3rd edition adventure Expedition to Castle Ravenloft. I run this adventure around Halloween, sometimes starting with Death House, the free introduction to Curse of Strahd. It's fun for players who ha...

I've been watching the Hammer and Bolter animated series on Warhammer+, and I'm reviewing each episode as I watch it. There may be very minor spoilers, but ideally no more than you'd get from the episode description.

A New Life

After two surprise Age of Sigmar episodes, this one returns to...

I'm reading the Stardrifter series by David Collins-Rivera, and reviewing each book as I finish it. The short story Playground is a story about the back alleys, or equivalent thereof, on a space station. This review contains minor spoilers.

This story is difficult to parse because it's written...

I'm re-reading the Horus Heresy, and this is my review of the second book in the series, False Gods by Graham McNeill. There are minor spoilers in this review.

This is it. This is the book where it all happens. The previous book introduced us to Horus himsulf, and managed to make him pretty en...

Double or nothing

As I write this review, I've recently read the Dragonlanc...

I've been painting lots of Pathfinder and Cursed City miniatures lately, using my Citadel Contrast and Vallejo Xpress Color paints. Because I've been using them a lot, I thought it might be useful to provide a review of each Xpress Color paint based on how I've been using it, and what I thin...

I'm rewatching every episode of the Man from UNCLE series from start to finish. This review contains spoilers.

Deep in the Ozarks lives a girl called Clemency McGill, and she's psychic. OR she's a THRUSH agent trying to trick UNCLE into delivering top agents into the hands of evil.

That's the...

The Horus Heresy book series is set in the 30th millennium, just 10 short millennia prior to Warhammer 40,000. It's the story of how the Emperor of Man found his lost sons, the Primarchs, from all across the galaxy, and ultimately how one of them turned against him, causing civil war within the...

I'm watching the Interrogator animated series on Warhammer+, and this is my review. There are spoilers in this post, so don't read on if you haven't seen the show and have a good memory.

No way to sugarcoat it, this is a filler episode. The previous episode changed everything, and this is the...

Easily the best episode yet. In fact, probably calling it the best episode yet is underselling it, because...

It's obligatory. If you're in the IT business or hobby, and if you get into Warhammer 40,000, then your favourite faction has to be Adeptus Mechanicus. Well, it's not actually obligatory at all. You can do whatever you want. It's your life. But it feels obligatory. The Cult of the Omnissiah is the...

Evil THRUSH is after Dr. Remington, a leading geologist. What does THRUSH want with a geologist?? Nobody knows, but UNCLE figures that if THRUSH wants to kidnap him, it's probably impor...
