February 23, 2013: Uploading your lists made easier
When you need to add a lot of miniatures to your haves and wants, the option to upload a text file is very convenient, because it lets you upload as many items as you want in one single go. But generating the file with the data in the correct format can be a lot of work. This is why we are offering now a utility that lets you download a template file correctly formatted that you can simply then update with the correct amounts and use to upload to the site. You just save the template in your computer, edit it with a text editor, and update the amounts for those miniatures that you want to add to your lists. The file is now ready for you to upload to the site so that the miniatures get added to your haves and/or wants. Check it out and let us know if you like it. We want to thank user emoss for suggesting this feature.
February 14, 2013: Search Haves and Wants
When other users' lists are very long, it is convenient to be able to filter them down to those figures that interest you. You can now do that with the new search form we have added to everybody's lists. You can select from the miniatures a user has only those of a given rarity, for example, so that you can concentrate on those that may be of most interest for you. And you can do that with your own lists too, so it is much easier to make sure they are up to date and to explore your collection and your list of wanted miniatures. We hope this will be of convenience for you all.

November 3, 2012: More prizes!
We are now giving away more prizes! Armies of the Week are now also awarded one month of Premium membership. So you have now even more ways to become Premium for free! And in order to better distribute the prizes and prevent them from going every week to the same game, we are forcing now alternation among games from one week to the next. The winners for a week will be chosen from the Miniature Reviews, and Armies belonging to games that did not win the same prize the previous week. This way we are making sure that the same game does not monopolize the prizes week after week. We hope this will give you all better chances to enjoy free Premiums from your contributions to the site.

February 21, 2012: Have I traded with you before?
We are so many nowadays that oftentimes it is difficult to remember if you have talked to someone before, or even if you have already traded with another user. Now you have that information available on the very private message form so that you can check it before sending someone a message or a trade offer. The form shows you if you have traded before with that person, and if so, how many times, and how many of the trades were successful. It also shows if you have already contacted that user before and, if so, how many messages have you both exchanged. The corresponding links let you check the trades and the conversation, and they open in new windows so you can use them even if you have already started writing your message and you won't lose it. Communication should be a bit easier now even for non-Premium users.
November 19, 2011: The Buzz...
