About Author: Warduke

Description
I'm a writer, an unschooled artist and I enjoy blogging from time to time. I enjoy cheesy horror films,otherwise known as 'shlock'. My biggest habits however, are playing video games into the wee hours of the morning, after which....I soon discover I've grown a full beard and my house needs cleaning ;) My other hobbies are writing,designing RPG miniatures, and of course my own worlds.

  • Hello all, and welcome back to War Duke’s table-top miniatures review. I know this was supposed to have been a monthly article, but in between having to move recently, worrying with my dad’s surgery, dealing with an impacted wisdom tooth *and* the holiday rat-race, I haven’t had much time to get this thing done. So without further adieu, let’s get this show back on the road and in proper form. WD: I’d like to start by welcoming our guest Matthew Solarz, whom I recently reviewed in part one of this discussion; covering his CenterStage Miniatures product line. Thank you Matt for taking the time out to speak with us here at Nerd-Trek. MS: Thanks for your interest in CSM! WD: […]

  • Welcome to my very first miniatures review on NERD-TREK. In this ( hopefully ongoing) series, we will be taking a close look at gaming miniatures both past and present. Including interviews with manufacturers, sculptors, painters and fellow enthusiasts as well as product reviews and possible sneak peeks at some upcoming miniatures. In part one of this post, we’ll be covering some of the products from Center Stage Miniatures.  Which reminds me, I’d like to take a moment and personally thank Matthew Solarz at Center Stage for donating both their time as well as the minis that made this series possible.  But enough about me, on with the review….   It was several months ago that I was contacted by the […]

  • Most people who are avid fans of the zombie genre ( Like myself), seem to pine for the day when most of us cease to be, when roving gangs of the living dead walk the earth.  This is all just fantasy of course, but if for example such a thing as z-day ( zombie day) actually took place as it does in the movies, just how ‘cool’ would it actually be to live in such a world?  After much thought on the subject,  I have to wonder, would anyone truly be able to thrive under these  conditions…comfortably? Anyway here it goes…enjoy. 1. Relatives – If a zombie outbreak did actually occur,  chances are you’d have to kill your own loved […]

    Top 10 reasons why the zombie apocalypse wouldn’t be as cool as most people suggest

  • I’d like to start off by giving a huge thanks to Mr. LaForce for taking his time out to do this interview . It’s not everyday that someone in my position is offered a great opportunity such as this. Having success with the first interview I conducted,I thought to myself,”why shouldn’t I do these more often?” I mean what better way to get a sense of accuracy in a good story? This particular interview however,came directly to me,I didn’t even know  if anyone else  in the industry would be interested doing another sit-down with me.  Was I ever glad to be so wrong? But enough about me,I’m certain your more interested in what the interview entails,so once again,here we go! […]

  • TSR, a name long gone,but not forgotten. While to many of us who either live for or just dabble in old-school gaming,share a fond appreciation for what that name comes to represent,though many of us often overlook those behind what made TSR synonymous with gamers. Luckily,I was able to speak with one such person,a man who lent his invaluable skills to our most beloved past-time. So without further adieu dear readers,it gives me great pleasure to introduce Steve Sullivan,editor,artist,writer and fellow gamer. So Steve, how did you come to start working for TSR and What was it like as a personal experience for you? I knew about D&D from almost its beginning, but I only started playing in January of […]
