My name is Rodge and I’ve been into miniatures, painting and gaming since I was a wee lad, over 25 years ago now!
My interests touch on all aspects of the hobby. I absolutely love to play but I also love painting, sculpting, conversions, building terrain, community building, going to events, and running events (including tournaments, narratives, campaigns, and even weirder things!)
Check out the links to my various projects below and click here if you’d like to get in touch!
I started a YouTube channel is 2016 as a way to get a little extra motivation for a project to clean out my hobby closet. Along the way I started making videos showcasing models, talking about Saga, Infinity, painting and more!
SAGA THORSDAY is a regular show dedicated to the excellent Saga miniatures game. It can be found in video form on my Rodge Rules Youtube page.
SAGA THORSDAY is also the Saga Event I run on the Thursday of Adepticon each year. I make it a little different and even more laid back from the other Saga events (which is quite tough!)
Mission Critical is a Narrative Infinity Event I run in May each year. This event started out as part of WAAAGH! Paca (see below) but has since split off and grown into an endeavor of massive proportions! The details for each year’s event are generally released in late December or early January.
You Magnificent Bastards is a group blog project I founded many years ago. This is a good place to see photos of my old models as well as pics, tutorials, event coverage and other cool stuff posted by my midwest buds! The blog is not updated too often anymore but it has a load of old content!
WAAAGH! Paca is an annual gaming event held at the end of January every year in Waupaca, Wisconsin. It began as a Warhammer tournament and has evolved over the years into something of a legend. If you’ve made it out, you know I can’t really describe its majesty. Suffice it to say, to fully understand the glory, it must be experienced firsthand. I am running this event for the last time in January 2020!
Although no longer active, the Point Hammered Podcast is something of a Warhammer institution at this point! I did this with my good bud, Johnny, for 10 years! Although we began as a Warhammer Fantasy podcast, the show expanded over the years to include other miniature games, favorite books, movies, and all the weird stuff that happens to us. It should be noted that this cast was quite explicit from start to finish! All the old episodes are still out there so check them out if you want a blast from the past!
