Review: I Am Slaughter - The Beast Arises Book 1

This fall, the Black Library announced a new mini-series of books in the 40k Universe's history; the Beast Arises, a 12-part series set two millenia after the Horus Heresy. Being a sucker for series and the 40k universe as a whole, I subscribed to the series, meaning I will get each book at it is released each month. With the first book having been out a month, and the next impending, let's dive into a review of Book 1, I Am Slaughter. As with my Horus Heresy reviews (which I haven't done in ages), SPOILER ALERT.

Review: G-Mats

In recent posts, you may or may not have noticed some new gaming mats appearing on our tables. I recently acquired three G-Mats from, and after having played a few games on them, wanted to write up a review.

List Building: Tyranid Monster Mash

As you may have noticed, we're on a bit of a "casual" gaming kick of late. As such, I put together a Nid list I think would be a lot of fun to run and also motivate me to paint up some monstrous creatures who have been sitting around waiting for attention.

Bat Rep: Twilight Fight - 1,500 Points - Blood Angels vs. Space Wolves

A couple weekends ago, Chandler and I got in our casual "Twilight Fight, Team Jacob vs. Team Edward" Game. Chandler brought some hard punching Space Wolves to counter my hodgepodge Flesh Tearers posing as Blood Angels. We set up the board to show off a bit our new G-Mat from, which inspired the narrative element of our game as well.

Painting: Malifaux Gremlins

My hobby time recently has been focused on my Gremlins, and I've been pretty happy with the progress I've made so far. Last weekend, I put the finishing touches on The Kin crew box, as well as several other models that were of interest or partially painted already.

Facing the Grey Tide Podcast - Episode 33: Hanging with the Tide

What is up Everyone? This week on the Podcast, Evan, Chandler, and Bryan come together to just talk about the hobby, some fun games we have had over the last couple of weeks, and projects that everyone is working on.  With the Holiday season just around the corner, everyone is looking to get things wrapped up before the end of the year.  Bryan runs down his latest Blood Angels project, Evan talks about Malifaux and some of the 40k games he has played in the last couple of weeks, and Chandler talks about his Malifaux crew he is working on and trying to beat down some Blood Angels in a Malestrom game.

The Guys go Old School and hold nothing back.
