TGN Saturday Edition: Reviews in the News

Even when I was younger and had a bit more disposable income than I do now, I always looked to reviews (mostly through my friends) to let me know if a game was worth picking up or not. Reviews are a vital resource so as to not end up with a new game/model that will just sit on your shelf, collecting dust, but instead see plenty of table time.

Here’s a list of reviews we found over this past week.

Read down to the bottom, if you wouldn’t mind, as I’ve got some questions for you and a contest as well.

Pins of War Review – Tabletop Tyrant Squire Plastic Figure Case

Pins of War takes a look at the Tabletop Tyrant Squire figure case for carrying around your little mans and gives you his thoughts on the subject.



From the article:

My miniature collection grows, thus I need storage. Since I already own a few cases from Tabletop Tyrant, such as my trusty Kingmaker (behind the books in the pic above), I was more than happy to see Tabletop’s newest addition, the Squire Plastic Figure Case.

Pretty much the same size as Tabletop Tyrant’s “half-size” Kingmaker, it replaces the black material case for a sturdy plastic exterior. One (or more) of those should be really useful in storing larger miniature collections (e.g. Warhammer 40K).
