    Today we continue our preview look at The Others: 7 Sins. We have guest writer Darth Nega (who has the inside scoop on all things sinful) with us to go over some information about the heroes of FAITH. Plus! We have the official launch date announcement, too!

    “Focus. Trust the team. Ignore distractions.”
    – Rocco de Curtis

    To battle beings from another dimension one must have resilience, nerve, and talent. Monster-killing talent, to be more precise. These are some of the pre-requisites for joining FAITH and dealing with abominations and much more. Today we’re going to dive a little bit into these extraordinary people. They may have a little too much in common with the monsters they fight, but they’re humanity’s only hope.

    Well, we had the preview of these guys not so long ago. The consensus was not all that positive about the sculpts. Comparisons to pieces of plumbing were made. I don’t know if I dislike the figures as much as the commenters seemed to.
    Anyway, if you do like how they look and you want to add them to your Beyond the Gates of Antares forces, the C3 Drop Squad and NuHu Mandarin are now available.

    So, I’m a teetotaler. For those of you who don’t know what that is, it means that I don’t consume alcohol. It’s not for any political or religious or health reason. I just can’t stand the flavor of it… any of it. Even those frilly, “you’ll never taste the alcohol in this” type of drinks are horrible to me.
    So until now, I’ve not really paid attention to DrunkQuest. That is, until now. The new expansion, Porcelain Gods, was made with people like me in mind. It’s their Designated Driver expansion. And it has just launched on Kickstarter.

    Paizo has just released a new adventure module for Pathfinder. In Hell’s Bright Shadow is the first in the 6-series Hell’s Rebels adventure path (I wonder if they know The Devil’s Rejects). Do your characters have a better chance than a snowball?

    And so this week comes to an end… Well… not yet. Technically the week comes to an end tomorrow. But the work week comes to an end today… unless you’re like me and you work weekends as well…
    Ok, so this has gotten off-track. It’s Friday. We should all be excited about that. And we’ve got a set of bite-sized stories to share with you. So there.

    Today’s batch of stories includes: 28mm Dwarf Figures Up On Kickstarter, Rise of the Kage is shipping now, Acheson Creations Releases the Final Kajiu Kaos Fantasy Worlds Kickstarter pieces, BitCrates: Boxes That Will Change Your Gaming Table For Any Game, New Skimmers and Crews at 15mm.co.uk, First Look at the Pudigroan Dog Line and Casualty sculpts for Flintloque, LaserCutCard New Product: Na-To chassis, New Legionary Power Gloves from Kromlech, and Ion Age: Taranis Tanks by Bob Naismith first parts and render.

    Call to John… and all of your other friends to let them know that Warlord Games has their new T-1000 Infiltrator available for Terminator Genisys. Though if this one really wants to do any real infiltrating, it really should fix all those holes in itself. That’s gotta be a dead-giveaway that you’re a robot.

    If you get knocked down off that horse, you should get back up and try to ride again. That’s what Demon Pig Studios is doing with their Battledexx card game. The first Kickstarter wasn’t quite so successful, so they cancelled it, regrouped, reconfigured, and have relaunched.

    Grab your spandex and get ready for a double-back-flip off of the top turnbuckle, because it’s gonna be a slobberknocker! Gale Force Nine has released their WWE Superstar Showdown game. The game was a big hit at Gen Con last month. GF9 had a big stack of them at the start of the show and those were pretty much all gone by the end of Saturday. Well, for those that missed out, you’ve now got your chance to get this new card game.

    Terror. Corruption. Redemption.
    These are the themes of The Others: 7 Sins, the new game from Guillotine Games and Studio McVey. We’ve been seeing some pretty sweet-looking models, but now, with the Kickstarter campaign growing ever-nearer, it’s time to get some real information about the game. We talked with some of the designers as well as Eric Kelley, head writer for the game, and got them to spill a few secrets.

    Ah, the ISD. It’s the poster-child for the Imperials. When you think of the Empire’s ships, you think of it and the TIE Fighter first (probably). Star Wars Armada originally came with Victory-Class Star Destroyers and… they’re cool and all… but we all know that what we really wanted were Imperial-Class Star Destroyers. Well, Fantasy Flight is delivering. Let’s take a look inside what the expansion set has in it.

    We’re rocketing our way through this week. I thought weeks before a holiday were supposed to drag on. But that has definitely not been the case. Labor Day Weekend is coming up and that, for those that live in Atlanta, means Dragon Con. I guess it means that for anyone, but especially for those of us here in Atlanta. 400-southbound is generally busy as I’m driving north on my way to the office. Today it was a parking lot, even at 6:15am. I’m sure it’ll be that way tomorrow, too, as everyone heads downtown for the party. From what I hear, though, there’s already plenty of partying going on, even last night.

    But that’s not what we’re here for. We’re here to make your gaming table look awesome. We’re here for our Terrain Corner piece.

    Today’s entries include: Impudent Mortal Entry Level 28mm and 15mm Terrain System on Kickstarter, Idyllwild Games Dark Age Outpost Up On Kickstarter, and Miniature Building Authority’s KickStarter begins on September 7th.

    Mantic is good about putting rules up for free on their website. That way, you get a look at what you’re getting into when you put down your money for figures. As I’ve mentioned before, I think it’s a wonderful idea. They continue in that tradition with the release of their rules for The Herd, a new Kings of War faction.

    Alton Brown once said that soon, everyone was going to have their own TV network and their own spice rub. Well, Formal Ferret Games is giving you a chance to practice at one of those. No, this isn’t a card game where you get to work at making your own spice blend. The Networks puts you in charge of your own TV channel. It’s sort of like UHF, the game, but without aliens or Weird Al.

    It’s always a pain when a Kickstarter shows up that you’re really excited about but you don’t have the cash at the time to take advantage of it. Thankfully, many companies are now putting their Backerkits up after the campaign has run and offers many of the same deals that were available during the Kickstarter to a wider audience with some extra time to join in on the project. Shadows of Esteren is one such project that’s now available online.

    This week just keeps humming along. There’s buzz around the office here as people are getting ready to head downtown for Dragon Con. I will not be going to the show. I have other things I’ll be working on. Some of those things will include the weekend updates.

    But we’re only midweek. So lets get our Midweek Snippets post typed up here to you.

    In today’s batch of bite-sized stories we have: New Life for Bladestorm Tabletop – Quick-Start Rules Released, ClearHorizon Miniatures releases the Apocalypse-Class Superheavy Tank, Khurasan releases 15mm Great Orcs, Hitechminiatures new release: Monk Luther, Pulp Alley expansion Pulp Leagues up for Pre-Order at Statuesque,

    CMON’s latest board game is hitting internet and store shelves. The World of SMOG: On Her Majesty’s Service is… a lot to type out… but it’s also a crazy trip through an underground marketplace. You see, Queen Victoria has sent you and several others into the Shadow Market in order to obtain four Artefacts. This is no trip to the corner store for ‘Dew and Doritos.

    About a month or so ago, I had an impromptu Arnold Schwarzenegger movie marathon on Netflix. The Terminator, Conan, and then The Running Man (and then Total Recall, but we’re mostly focusing on The Running Man here). As you know, in the movie, a dystopian society puts convicts into a “win or die” game where they have to escape from psychopaths-turned-heroes. Well, now just think if you took that idea and gave it steroids. That’s sort of the idea behind Splinter: Surprising Things. The RPG is up on Kickstarter now and looking for funding.

    Everyone can use a vacation every now and again. I certainly wouldn’t mind having one. 😛
    Well, if I was going to go on one, the Rocky Mountain Gaming Vacation run by Icarus Tours is certainly one I’d be interested in. I’m a big fan of gaming. I’m a big fan of mountains. This sort of thing would be right up my alley.

    I love mechs. There’s just something about giant walking robots that I enjoy. I played the hell out of Mechwarrior 2 and 3 on my computer back in the day. I used to collect Gundam models (still have some of them). There was even a time that my friends and I were working on a game that used our Gundam models. That game never panned out, but it would seem that we weren’t the only ones thinking about doing such, as Desperation: 2196 seems to be something along the lines of what we were working on. (Note: We were just messing around with some rules about 17 years ago, I’m not trying to imply any sort of “idea stealing” or anything like that at all)
