    WizKids keeps up their previews for the upcoming Trinity War set for DC HeroClix with a look at Dr. Sivana and Black Adam.
    I looked up the Trinity War on the DC Wiki the other day. Seems like an interesting (if maybe a bit confusing at times) story line.
    Are you HeroClix players also comic book readers? I’ve not regularly read comics since the mid-90s, and then, it was primarily Marvel (the X-Factor team with Havok at the lead was my favorite).

    Battlefront continues their “all artillery, all the time” previews for Fate of a Nation with a look at the M50 155mm gun. It certainly can’t be said that you don’t have options in your methods of bombardment in that game.
    I’ve got basically no knowledge of the conflict the game surrounds, but it seems there were lots of artillery pieces present.
    Napoleon would’ve loved it.

    Mantic is now taking pre-orders for the next expansion of DreadBall, DreadBall Xtreme. This version of the game eschews the lights and glamor of the arena for the rough and rumble world of “wherever we can have a game that doesn’t get busted by the feds.” No referees. No fouls. Just you vs. the opponent.

    Battlefront doesn’t want you to have to leave your artillery pieces without crew and looking like there’s no leadership. So they’re showing off their Artillery HQ and Crew for Fate of a Nation. While most of the artillery was surplus from WWII, it doesn’t mean it was any less effective on the battlefield.

    Kolaps Ground Zero is a new sci-fi miniatures skirmish game using 40mm miniatures that’s back up on Indiegogo after regrouping an re-evaluating their product. Players fight in a post-apocalyptic Europe with themes from horror, sci-fi, cyberpunk, and even mythology. They’ve made it over their funding goal (it was only €650, but they’re still over it) and still have 19 days to go.
    Note: the page is in French, as is the game, but English is coming soon.

    Rise of Cthulhu is a new 2-player strategy card game that’s up on Kickstarter. Players must lead their cult in order to gain the most influence at key Lovecraftian locations in order to have the most favor with the Old Ones when they return. Sure, you’ll lose your sanity at the end, more than likely, but you’ll probably not get ripped to shreds right afterward.
    The game is already over its funding goal with still 22 days to go.

    Warlord Games adds to their Bolt Action line with the release of their new Waffen-SS Cavalry set. Yes kids, men on horseback were used during WWII and still used even later. While it seems rather backward, these units could still be very effective, going over terrain and into places at a speed that other modes of transportation simply couldn’t compare to.
