My favorite monster from Monster Manual 3 is the Oblivion Moss, a giant psychic moss creature that steals your memories and makes mossling duplicates of you. If you’d like to use these creatures in an encounter, here’s how to make your own moss monster minis.
One of the most surprising successes in the gaming industry could be due for another big surprise — a movie! And not just some direct-to-DVD Sci-Fi Originals lameness either. There’s a major Hollywood director attached to this project.
The release of Masters of the Force brings us to the end of the road with the Star Wars Miniatures game. It was a good run. Now all those little plastic Jedi are one with the Force.
Luminous beings are we, not this crude matter.
All good things must someday end, and so it is with the Star Wars Miniatures game. Masters of the Force will be the final expansion produced by Wizards of the Coast. You can tell the creative team kind of went all out with this one — it’s packed with the best classic characters, and some [...]
Whatever happened to the Voltron Monsterpocalypse set that was supposed to come out in early 2010? Robot Viking dug deep to find out. This is serious investigative journalism, people!
Privateer Press has a new expansion for Monsterpocalypse ready to hit game stores in April. Big in Japan will take the collectible miniatures game back to its kaiju roots, letting the giant monsters and robots attack Tokyo in the manner of their forefathers.
The latest expansion for the Star Wars Miniatures game, The Dark Times, comes out next month. Aside from Boushh, Ubese Hunter, what else can you expect to find in the set?

It’s been far too long since the days of breathless anticipation and constant page refreshing as we waited for each new preview figure from whatever HeroClix set was upcoming. On November 18, HeroClix will be reborn as Wizkids/NECA releases the first HeroClix set in more than a year.
A few years ago, we started a Halloween tradition with our gaming group. Every Halloween, we get together and play an appropriately themed game for a few hours, often with some kind of house rule that lets the players earn the right to eat candy. If we can manage it, we play on Halloween night, [...]
Arcane Legions, the new mass combat miniatures game from Wells Expeditions, officially released yesterday. We’ve got some new details on the game’s “insider’s club” and unit creator. If you’re into alternate history, fantasy battles or fast (yet tactically rich) miniatures games, you might want to take a look.
The release of Arcane Legions is just a few weeks away. We’ve the full stat card for one of the units that comes in the starter set, a Roman infantry unit called 7th Legion Testudo. Deploy shield wall!
The Arcane Legions demo kit arrived at Robot Viking headquarters last week, and last night we finally sat down to a serious army-vs-army test battle. The Romans won a narrow victory, and despite some finger-numbing assembly issues, we can safely say this: Arcane Legions is really fun.
