    We’re doing our best to fill up your day with gaming here on TGN. But I gotta sleep sometime. So where I leave off, gaming magazines pick up. In this case, it’s Figure Painter Magazine. Because you definitely don’t want to be taking painting advice from me! Instead, flip through the magazine and get tips and techniques from the best painters out there today. Issue 46 is now available for your reading pleasure.

    While my personal convention season is over with, that doesn’t mean that there’s no more conventions to be had. Far form it, in fact. For example, next month, MOAB will be coming to Sydney this upcoming weekend. If you’ll be in the Land Down Under and itching for some gaming, you should check it out.

    Seems we’ve got a couple stories talking about games that were successfully Kickstarter now being available to order. In this case, it’s Ghost Ops. The game is a tabletop RPG where you’ll be part of an international special forces team that is sent into the world’s most dangerous and unstable places, doing what you can through clandestine means to make things better. Their Kickstarter was able to fund the game, and you can get your pre-order for it in now.

    Mantic is now taking orders for the Collector’s Edition box for The Walking Dead: All Out War, their miniatures skirmish game of zombie-hunting and resource-gathering. What makes this box so special? It contains several expansions beyond just the Core Box game, including the 2017 and upcoming 2018 Show Exclusive packs. Plus, there’s terrain and a neoprene game mat for you to play on. It’s sort of an all-in-one deal.

    The galaxy is vast and full of wonder… and resources! Best to not sit around and wait, or those resources will be gobbled up by some rival alien race. Expanding out into the stars, claiming areas for you, and placing workers to best make use of those resources is what you’ll be doing in Stellar Leap, a new area control/worker placement game that’s up on Kickstarter now.

    Walking into battle is so passe. Why not, instead, head into a fracas on a giant demon-moose-thing? I’d probably go for that over walking. That’s what Maegan Cyndewin can do for the Litari forces in Runewars. She brings some magical power to the elves, having sworn vengeance against the Uthu Y’llan that killed her mom (though had been partially summoned by her dad. Whoops.). Get a look at what she’s capable of in this preview.

    GCT Studios is giving us a sneak peek into what’s coming up for Bushido. They’ve posted some new artwork for minis that’ll be released in Wave 37 for the game… … plus an extra. Yeah, apparently they posted one piece that isn’t going to be in the next set of releases. But hey, we can still look at it and say how cool it is. Just gotta wait a little longer until it hits your tabletops.

    I love when I see a thing that was originally a Kickstarter campaign not only fund and then deliver, but become available for general release. This is one such story. You can now order the Godsfall worldbook for your very own. Godsfall is a setting for 5th Edition based on the Godsfall podcast. There’s all manner of information, from the different races, to the deities, to the history of the realm. Get your name on the list and get the book as soon as it’s available.

    “It belongs in a museum!”
    Well, thieves would disagree. They’re out to grab all those priceless artifacts and sell them off to the highest bidder. Though it’s not going to be easy. There’s plenty of security systems such as cameras and guards standing in their way. Only the most clever thief will get away with it. And that’s what you’ll be trying to do in Museum Rush, a new board game coming to Kickstarter next month. And because I’m a fan of being an informed consumer, if you sign up for their mailing list, they’ll send you a free pdf of the rulebook.

    Inside our minds is a whole other world. It can often feel like its at conflict with itself, as our various emotions fight with one-another for control. Will the forces of Gloom manage to take over and leave us in a sad state, or will Bliss be able to fight off their advances and let us live a happy life? That’s what you’ll be deciding in Cerebria, a new area control game that’s up on Kickstarter now.

    With the decidedly underhanded way that the Emperor took control of the Galactic Senate and put himself in control, it was pretty much inevitable that there would be those opposed to his rule. Thus began the Galactic Civil War, with the Rebellion steadily growing to face against the Imperial Forces. It’s this initial founding of the Rebellion that this new sourcebook for the Star Wars RPG focuses on. It’s called Dawn of Rebellion.

    Ladies and gentlemen, try and keep calm. We’ve got a giant robots alert. I repeat, we have a giant robots alert. Ok, maybe don’t keep calm, after all. Giant robots are awesome. And you certainly get plenty of them in Iron Wars. It’s a sci-fi tactical miniatures game where players pilot their mech suits against their opponents, or possibly cooperatively against a common foe, as the game has both modes of play in it. They’ve relaunched on Kickstarter and the new campaign is going now.

    Aaaaaaand we’ve landed back on Monday. The first Monday of Autumn (or Spring, for you Southern-Hemisphere-ers). Too bad it’s still really warm up here. I don’t consider 90 degrees to be very “fall-like.” But we’ll get back to those cooler temperatures eventually. Until then, how about we make your gaming tables look good? Sounds like a plan.

    Today in the Terrain Corner we have: Micro Art Studio terrain KS campaign incoming, Acheson’s 20-40% Off Sale Extended, and Fat Dragon Games Launches Dragonlock 3 Kickstarter.

    It doesn’t just get cold on Earth. I mean, look at places like Hoth. That place is terrifyingly cold. If you’re going to wage wars in such a place, you’re going to need to be properly equipped. And that’s just what The Ion Age has for you with their latest releases. They have their new Cold Climes Planetary Militia available now for Patrol Angis.

They’ve got several new sets available over in their webshop, including Hirdmen as well as Warlords (Huh… warlords from Warlord Games… Seems appropriate).

    Japanime Games has started taking pre-orders for a new card game called Terrifying Girl Disorder. It takes its inspiration from the novel Dogra Magra. In the game, players are highly-psychically-powerful women who have lost their memories. The goal is to regain that which was lost, though each character has their own, unique win conditions for the game as well.

    Sometimes you just gotta bring out the big guns. Enemy armor or fortifications need to be blown to smithereens and your regular hand-held piece just won’t do it. So you call in the artillery. That’s what we’ve got with these new releases for Beyond the Gates of Antares. The Isorians have two new floating artillery pieces (must not have much of a kickback) and the Freeborns get one.

    As I’ve said with pretty much every Legio Custodes release, I wish I had that kind of gear back when I was a janitor. This one, in particular, would’ve been nice. Trust me, I’ve come across many, many, many things in those previous jobs that made me go, “Kill it with fire!!!” *shudders at the memory of coming across a trashcan that’d been missed when closing down the football field at the end of the year, only to be rediscovered next summer when we were cleaning up for the start of the next season* Anyway, you can order your Legio Custodes Aquilon Terminators with Infernus Firepikes now.

But that’s sometimes half the fun. But whatever I end up doing, I should fuel up on bite-sized gaming stories. Good thing that’s what we’ve got here.

    Today on the platter we have: SnapDice: Magnetic Dice Tray Up On Kickstarter, Chaos Books of Damnation Available From Kromlech, and Sally 4th Running Classic Movie Miniatures Kickstarter.

Reason being is that it’s not just one new set of rules inside the box, but actually several. You can mix and match them as you see fit to add several whole-new playing experiences to your game.

    One of the perhaps less-known parts of WWII was the exploits of the Chindits. These jungle-fighting specialists went into Southeast Asia and deep into enemy territory to harass the enemy’s back flanks. They would disrupt support and rail lines with their guerilla-style tactics. You can now add these tough fighters to your Bolt Action armies. Along with that, back in Europe, if you’ve got a German force, you can order the new Waffen SS Grenadier pack.
