I want to start this recap properly with a big “Thank you!” to everyone who read, discussed, and shared these articles.
While understanding that Warhammer is designed to defy or spite the idea of sound living principles, resolution, and progress (unless that progress is also subverted for the sake of some larger moral compromise), Warhammer fiction is at its best when it challenges its fundamental premises.
This is the truth of Horus Lupercal – that it didn’t matter how much he was given, born with, or celebrated, he was only really interested in himself and his own desires.
“Art is subjective.” Yeah, we’ve all heard that one. This cliche saying basically means that not all art means the same thing to everyone. While that can certainly be true, I tend to look at art interpretation much like I look at literary interpretation – not all interpretations are equal or are equally supported by […]
No article today, dear readers, but instead I have an extra-long video for you! The much anticipated second part of the mental health discussion is here! Dr. Nahumck took close to 2 hours out of his day (and part of the Dodgers’ game!) to speak to me and answer some questions.

It is, after all, so incredibly vast and covering so many different characters that there’s no real way to say that one character […]
This debate is a question of game ethos. To GW, what does being a good matched play/tournament player mean? This is the foundation of the social contract that applies to matched play at home and tournaments.
