Into the Black: Boarding Party to launch on Kickstarter February 27th

That’s what you’ll be doing in Into the Black: Boarding Party, a new game coming from I Will Never Grow Up Games that’s coming to Kickstarter in a week.

TGN Review: Divinity Derby by Ares Games

Zeus has called together various gods and they’re having themselves a party. The ambrosia starts kicking in, and soon, they’re arguing over what mythical creatures would win in a flying race. Well, being divine in nature, the gods are able to figure this out directly by setting up a track and calling these creatures to fly for their amusement. Of course, no race is quite exciting enough without a little betting going on. That’s the story behind Divinity Derby, a new racing board game from Ares Games. They’ve sent me a copy to check out and let you know about how it works.

So get your $2 bet ready, it’s time for another TGN Review. This time, it’s Divinity Derby.

New Axemaidens for SAGA Available From Brother Vinni

Most of the time, the figures from Brother Vinni are system-agnostic. But, in this case, they’re for SAGA, the dark ages game of combat and might. They have released a new set of 4 Axemaidens. And I’m guessing they’re not just waving those axes because their Viking husbands forgot to take out the trash again.

Anvil Eight Previews More Rhommox Sculpts for Aetherium

The Rhommox are unlike other factions for Aetherium. They’re not out for a particular ideology or simply trying to conduct business in a new form. They only want to spread, infect, and destroy. As such, their tactics are different from how others operate. And their figures are much more alien. Check out the Volatile sculpts below.

AEG Announces That 70s Expansion for Smash Up

The thing about Smash Up is that AEG can pull in references from pretty much everywhere in order to make new factions. In this case, they’re hitting the wayback machine to the time of disco, bell bottoms, platform shoes, and polyester leisure suits. Yes, it’s the 70s.

“You made the Earth move under my feet.” It’s something you say to someone else for really getting you or doing something great.

Fantasy Flight Previews AT-RT For Star Wars: Legion

While we never see the Rebels using the AT-RT in the classic trilogy of Star Wars films, it was a piece of equipment that they could’ve possibly picked up, as we see Clone Troopers using them in the prequel trilogy. Not as heavily armed or armored as the AT-ST, the vehicle still gave some added protection to its rider, as well as some powerful weapons that a regular soldier wouldn’t’ve been able to carry on their own. They’ll be making their way to Star Wars: Legion, and Fantasy Flight is giving you a preview.

Mantic Shows Giant Renders For Kings of War: Vanguard

Big miniatures are my favorites. Sure, I have a fondness for Gretchin and Skinks and such. But the really huge figures are my real favorites. And Kings of War: Vanguard has some huge minis coming with it. Mantic is showing off renders of the giants that you can get as part of the Late Pledge campaign for the game. These figures clock in at 180mm tall, with plenty of alternate parts to customize your kit and create different types of giant.

Draft Packs Now Available For Star Wars: Destiny

I love draft events. Sure, there’s something to creating a deck ahead of time and making sure it’s as tightly-wound as you can. But there’s also something to flying by the seat of your pants, making your deck from a limited set of cards and having to use only your wits and skill to make it through. Star Wars: Destiny has new draft packs that you can use to have some cool events with.

Friday Snippets

Woo! Friday! Woo!
My week went by quick. But, being busy, that’ll happen. And there’s certainly been plenty going on. It’ll be nice to have a weekend to decompress. Though there’s also Game Day up at the Milton Library tomorrow. We’ll see if I make it out there.
Also thinking about making another cheesecake, because that’s just where I’m at, culinarily these days.

But, if we’re all gonna have a busy weekend, we should all fill up on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Kromlech Weekend Promo on Glyphs, 10% Off Forged in Battle at 15mm Skirmish Supplies, and New Bases Available From Kromlech.

Wyrd Previews Twisted Horrors For The Other Side

Well, I mean, I realize we just passed Valentine’s Day, but the vibe I’m getting from the new The Other Side preview from Wyrd is decidedly more Halloween.
You know, I bet it’s a real pain when you get something stuck in your eye that’s in the middle of your back. That’s gotta be annoying.
