Please Allow Me To Introduce Myself

Greetings, warmongers! So one of the things that I've really kinda done a less than stellar job with is introducing you fine folks to the wondrous possibilities of the site. This is something that I'm working on rectifying. The first step to that is a brand spanking new set of intro emails to kind of walk you through all the primary features of the site. Starting now, all new folks who register for iToysoldiers will get these welcome emails. Now I recognize that you're probably saying, "Rob, that's good and all but it doesn't really help me. I've already signed up and I got your sub par...

iToysoldiers is pleased to welcome Relic Knights

Greetings, Warmongers! I'm delighted to add the superfun looking "Relic Knights" by Sodapop Miniatures to the fold. I'll freely admit that I haven't had an opportunity to play this game but I'm a huge fan of the whole anime/mecha aesthetic so this game looks fantastic. Anyway, here's some flavor text from the game to kind of give you a feel for the game. The Darkspace Calamity engulfs the universe. Inexorably it devours galaxies whole, their lights extinguished one by one. Only a single galaxy remains, desperately staving off extinction through the might of its heroes. Relic Knights is a...

What're You Working On? Modeling Projects Updated

Ahoy, commanders! I just wanted to take a moment and gush about some improvements I made to the Modeling Project system. Here’s a few bullets to cover the biggies: First: I seriously improved the navigation of the main Modeling Projects page. There’s a link to create a modeling project, a list of the newest projects, the most popular projects and a brief stat summary. You can take a peek at all these at http://itoysoldiers.com/munitions/modeling-projects Second: There’s a whole bunch of new ways to look for...

Toy Soldier Thursday XI

My buddy, Thade just finished up his Storm Guard bikes and it kind of a) makes me jealous ‘cause he’s WAY faster at painting than I am and b) inspired this week’s Toy Soldier Thursday. I’ve got a collection of bikes* to show off this week. Alas, they’re all from 40K. I need some more Infinity players (or… Bolt Action… or any game really) to get some more pictures up. But in any case, here’s a collection of bikes/mounts for your eyeball enjoyment. Storm Guard Bikes with Grav-Guns Thade |...

Toy Soldier Thursday X

Well, it’s Thursday and that means I have a bunch of great models from the fine member players of iToysoldiers. I gotta admit that Thursday kind of snuck up on me because I’ve been working so hard on my own models. I’ve got a Void Weaver on the painting table that’s got me absorbed. So on that note: This week’s theme is WIP shots. I know, I know. Work in progress models aren’t usually what one would expect when viewing a picture post of miniature war gaming models but… I find that they’re interesting. Why? Well, seeing how other folks approach the painting of a model can often inspire me and...

Toy Soldier Thursday IX

It’s been a ridiculously long time since I’ve done a Toy Soldier Thursday post but I still think it’s a good idea so we’re going to start doing ‘em again. Who doesn’t want a dose of beautiful models on the slide to the weekend? This week’s theme is beasties! Obvious, yeah? Flyrant  Zarenkenial | full post Fenris from Blood Rage Slobberblood |...

Bring on the Stats

Ahoy, commanders! Have you ever woken up in the middle of the night – sweat soaking your sheets, a scream fighting to tear its way out of you – all because you were going to face a new army tomorrow and you weren’t sure how you were likely to fair against them? Yeah, me neither. But that doesn’t mean that you don’t share my curiosity in how a game’s meta is shaping up. Well, wonder no longer, friends. I’ve started putting a fair amount of effort into actually living up to the slogan, “We have stats. Stats are cool”. Which brings me to the announcement of iToysoldiers Release 4.2-rc10. The...

And the winner of Bug Hunt 2016 (and other sundry items) is

Ahoy, commander! It’s time to announce the winner of the Bug Hunt 2016 draw. Woo hoo. Just to recap, iToysoldiers occasionally runs a Bug Hunt where we ask everyone to report bugs, request features, and provide feedback in general. Whilst we’re (I’m) happy to take input all year long, the Bug Hunt is a focused effort with a reward of sorts. Each submission to the Bug Hunt (in whatever for that takes) is entered to win $25 to their favorite game vendor. And the winner of Bug Hunt 2016 is… Burgz134! Burgz134...

Work Your Fingers to the Bone, What Do You Get?

Boney fingers! Oh, and of course an iToysoldiers release that addresses a bunch of issues! I finished up a new release today that I fondly call “release-4.2-rc1”. Yeah, I know. My version numbering is pretty all over the place but regardless of what it’s called it does address some issues that the 4.0 release introduced. Here’s a quick rundown of what’s been added: Commanders can now achieve higher levels! A message appears on the activity stream when you achieve a new level. Trending and popular content calculations are better (the newest handful of content isn’t necessarily going to claim...

iTS Super Huge Release - What's in it?

Ahoy, Warmonger! So I promised a bit more information about the massive, amazing, huge iToysoldiers release that happened on January 7th. Let me do that now (I had a bunch of bugs and minor tweaks that I had to deal with before I could write this). Brand spanking new site design I’m really really proud of this. I think it looks way better. The navigation in particular is a lot more… intuitive? Comprehensive? In any case, I hope you enjoy the new look. The left side bar holds all the things you might want to check out – organized in a kind of thematic sort of way. Also, the pages themselves...
