    XenoShyft puts players in charge of a NorTec mining operation as they look for Xenosathem, a very valuable mineral. However, The Horde, a name given to various groups of alien life forms, are also looking for Xenosathem. And the only thing standing between your bottom line and a grisly death is how you deploy your NorTec defense forces. Well, things are getting nastier as XenoShyft: Dreadmire takes you into the swampy, nasty areas and still tells you, “survive if you can.” New Weather effects in this stand-alone expansion will challenge players like never before. That’s where you come in.

    Earlier today, we highlighted the Zombidice: Wulfsburg expansion for the forthcoming Zombicide: Black Plague (coming to Kickstarter in June) from Guillotine Games and CoolMiniOrNot. Now, TGN is getting an exclusive look at the core Survivors of Black Plague. Every day this week (and Saturday), we’ll highlight one Survivor from the game. When battling hordes of medieval Zombies and Necromancers, the world needs heroes like no others. In Black Plague, players can take control of a mighty warrior, an elf archer, a wise mage, a blacksmith dwarf, a tavern maid, or a nun out for holy vengeance. Today we’ll take a look at Clovis, our mighty warrior, and the game’s new dashboards.

    Artipia Games is in their final hours on Kickstarter for Project: ELITE. And by “Final Hours” I really mean just a couple left to go. Sometimes you see someone say “final hours” and it’s like “final 1000 hours.” But this is not the case here. Final hours is 3.5 hours left to go (at time of posting). The campaign has come a long way, having made more than 6x their funding goal and unlocking a lot of stretch goals and getting some add-ons thrown in as well.

    Getting just the right colors for your models is a big part of making them look great. Sometimes that can be rather difficult. This green just isn’t green enough, or that shade of brown isn’t really what you were looking for. This can be doubly-difficult when dealing with historical miniatures. Having the exactly-right shade for your tanks and uniforms is of utmost priority. Well, Battlefront is here to help you paint your Flames of War minis with their new Colours of War paint sets.

    Games Workshop has started taking pre-orders for some new Cult of Mechanicus units over in their webshop, as well as bundling some of the products together. And, since having the rules for the units is generally a good idea, they’ve got the new codex up for pre-order as well. As per usual, they’ve got the regular version as well as a special deluxe edition (limited to 900 worldwide) that you can get, if you’re really into the new models and book.

    Zombicide: Black Plague takes the fan-favorite zombie-destroying action you love so much and sends it back in time. Set in a fantasy-steeped Middle Ages, players will have to adapt new strategies to stem the tide of undead horrors. The Kickstarter for the campaign is launching early next month and along with the main game, backers will also be able to get Zombicide: Wulfsburg, the exciting first expansion to this new version of the game. It’s got something called a Wolf-bombination.

There’s another trio of things to look at this week, in the form of a new guest bio, a pair of new hobby classes, and a new gaming event.

    Germans Bolt Action players! Are you tired of not having enough firepower over on your side of the board? Well, the fellows over at Warlord Games have heard you and are here to help out. They’ve got the new Jagdtiger Heavy Tank Destroyer kit now available. Built atop the King Tiger chassis, with a heavily-armored top that sported the massive 128mm Pak 44 cannon, this monster of a vehicle was feared by all Allied tank commanders. No matter what sort of armor was put in front of it, the Jagdtiger could potentially take it out.

    Requiem Vampire Knight is in their final week over on Kickstarter. They funded pretty quickly after launch, and have been chewing through stretch goals since then. They’re getting closer to being 2x funded with their campaign, which would be pretty sweet. That would be pretty close to unlocking the Campaign pack, which would add solo and cooperative modes to the game. To make their way to it, they’ve put up some great add-ons to the campaign.

    On the Lamb Games has launched their Kickstarter campaign for Gaiden Series, their new expansion for Endless: Fantasy Tactics. The main focus of Gaiden Series is to expand the number of scenarios available for Endless: Fantasy Tactics. There have been two “pay what you want” series of scenarios released online by On The Lamb Games, but they want to bring those to a print format for you. Also, they have two more scenario series that they’d like to make. There are also variant profile cards for numerous miniatures that have already been released, increasing the re-playability of those units and expanding into further options for team builds. There’s also a quartet of new minis they’re looking to get sculpted. They’re ones people have been clamoring after for a while.

    Blackout: Journey Into Darkness has made quite a splash on Kickstarter. Their campaign funded in around 8 hours and they’ve already more than doubled that. Obviously, getting that far has unlocked some stretch goals for the campaign. There’s been several “free” upgrades, including new salvage cards, new weapon cards, and double-sided male/female player cards, but there’s also some add-ons that’ve been… well… added on.

    An airbrush is a great way to quickly and efficiently coat several models at a time. It’s also really good for getting very smooth gradients between different colors. I’m… not allowed to use an airbrush. … At least, not after what happened last time I tried to use one… *shudders at the memories* Anyway, airbrushes require paint of a certain consistency if they’re to work right, and Forge World has decided to help, by making a new line of paints specifically formulated for use with an airbrush.

    Forbidden Stars is a new board game that Fantasy Flight Games is working on that’s set in the grimdark future of the Warhammer 40k universe. Players are in control of massive galaxy-spanning armies of their chosen race and duel it out for control of the cosmos. But those armies don’t start out massive. Armies don’t just magically appear out of thin air (well… somewhat it does for Chaos, but even then, not everything simply “pops” out of the Warp). It takes time and resources to build up what will eventually become your (hopefully) galaxy-conquering military machine. In this preview, Fantasy Flight gives us a look at how all that comes to be.

In this preview, they look at a time just after the passing of Hank’s ex-wife, Janet Van Dyne. In this preview, it’s Wasp.
