There’s a long tradition of using miniatures in RPGs and we look at all the methods used. Also, a conversation about integrating miniature games into RPGs. And pie. Always pie.

We discuss that ol’ venerable game institution, the tiny-model count wargame. What happened to the experience and improvement systems from Necromunda and Mordheim? What is the ideal model count for these sorts of things? How is Dale’s answer to everything “fleet games”?

What if D&D wasn’t the first RPG? What if Magic: the Gathering wasn’t the first CCG? We alternate history our own little corner of the hobby, as if that was a good idea.
