So, as I was in a car for just slightly more than 1/2 of yesterday, I didn’t get much of a chance to post up the Midweek Snippets post. As such, I’m rolling it in with today’s Terrain Corner, as I have a bit of time right now to do so (and to give you a “peek behind the curtain,” I’m actually typing this late at night here on Wednesday).
Anyway, in this Terrain Corner/Snippets post we have: Gaddis Gaming Launches 28mm WWII Miniatures Kickstarter, Turn One Gaming Supplies Releases 8-Bit Dice, Donnybrook skirmish game rulebook now available, Post Apocalyptic Dwarf Bikers Up On Kickstarter, Round-Lip Space Dungeon Bases Available From Tabletop-Art, Heroic Maps – Giant Maps: The Great Labyrinth Now Available, MidKnight Heroes Super Chibi Finial sculpts are in and late pledge extended, Crossover Miniatures Releases Frederick Class Airship, Meka Desert: Pwork Wargames science fiction gaming mat, Gamelyn responds to backers with only 3 days left, and Battle Valor Games 15mm Fantasy New Releases.
Moving locations can be exciting. There’s a new place with new opportunities, new neighbors, new local restaurants, a new shops. However… you’ve gotta pack up all your stuff into boxes and carry it over there. That’s… not so much fun. That’s why a lot of people will try and sell off a bunch of their stuff, first. Well, Ulfsark Games are moving. So they’re having themselves a sale.
Ah, the pre-order. Putting out money in advance for something in order to make sure you get it as soon as possible once it’s made available. Most of us have done it, myself in included. There’s certainly nothing wrong with getting really excited about an upcoming release for a game or other project you like. And that’s why Plaid Hat Games has started taking pre-orders for the next two Ashes expansion packs.
Well… that was a bit of an adventure.
For those interested in keeping track, Monday I noticed my car had a coolant leak. Tuesday I took it into the shop. They originally said, “it’ll just be a couple hours.” Then they said, “it’ll be overnight (they needed a part).” So, seeing as I was clear on the other side of town, I crashed at a friend’s place (as a 50mi walk home didn’t sound fun), picked up my car this morning, and am now back into the office. Hooray!
You know what I could use? A snack. Or at least some snack-sized gaming stories.
Hey! Look what we’ve got here!
In today’s Snippets we have: Collins Epic Wargames introduces Milestone Rewards for Polyversal, Cast Metal Gaming Dice on Kickstarter, FatMan Productions Posts New Previews For Awakening Recon, Frostgrave Fan Base Launched, Blacksmith Miniatures release: the apothecary, Photos from Nuremberg Spielwarenmesse 2016, Malifaux translated to Italian, The Circle of Chaos Kickstarter Going On Now, Shipping Update from Nexus Miniatures, Titan-Forge releases new Void Cannon, Last Couple of Days for Era: The Consortium Kickstarter, and Coming on 13th Feb – Era: Lyres Pocket Edition – a £1 Tabletop RPG.
Busy preparations this weekend. It’s the week of Christmas and so I’m a busy little baking bear. Yesterday was brownies, two batches of chocolate chip cookies, and a batch of caramel-filled dark-chocolate-chip cookies. Today I’ve got four more types I’m planning on making. Did I mention being busy? So it’s just a quick stop in here to get you some bite-sized stories for you to nosh on while I work on things for people to nosh on at the office this week.
Today’s stories include: Doublesix Dice now available to the public, Name Left Hand Miniatures January 2016 Releases Contest, and Khurasan releases15mm Modern Israelis.
While I know that it’s certainly not as hot as it is in, say, Brisbane right now, the 70-degree weather here in Atlanta is making it rough to think that it’s the Holiday Season.
The eggnog and gingerbread cookies (of course homemade), though, are helping.
Speaking of other such bite-size morsels, let’s give you a bit to chew on in terms of some news.
Today’s offerings include: NatEmo Dice Up On Kickstarter, Siren Miniatures Releases Odins Dwarf Mini, War & Empire II Adds 3rd Century Romans To Kickstarter Campaign, and New Norse Shields Available From Puppets War.
And it is Friday.
Everyone rejoice, for the weekend is at hand!
Do you have gaming that will be happening over the weekend? I hope you do. The weekend is the time for gaming. All the gaming!
But before we can get to all the gaming on the weekend, we’ve got to serve you up some bite-sized stories we’ve found over the past couple days.
What stories? These stories: New Beyond the Gates of Antares Dice Bags & Dice From Warlord Games, Khurasan’s new Away Team space explorer range Available, The Spoils and Alter Reality Games Announces OP Partnership, New Gudrun The War Chief Mini Available From Brother Vinni, New From Wasteland Minis Available From RN Estudio, and New 75mm Knight Model From Scibor Miniatures.
The week continues on. How many of you are still working on Thanksgiving leftovers? Tonight will be the last of the sliced turkey and sweet potatoes for me. I do, however, still have many servings of soup left. Most of it went into the freezer for later. It’s all good, but I’m reaching my limit on wanting to have it again for a while.
However, this weekend I’m going to be making fruitcake. 😀
For other tasty bites, we’ve got our midweek snippets.
Today’s stories include: Major 1p40k/KT Update, Rogue Planet | House Rules and Scenario Generator added, Horcmany Eve – A Flintloque Adventure from a Time before Blackpowder, FREE Interactive Solo Adventure PDF – The Cave & the Treasure, Eternity Dice Regular and Charms Edition on Kickstarter, RONE Card Game Approaches Funding Goal, Massive Awesome Unveil The Biomancer For Shattered Earth, Tail Feathers Downloadable Scenarios Now Available, Viera Sci-Fi Mini Now Available From RN Estudio, New Wolsung SSG releases, and Nexus Miniatures Posts Progress Update.
And so we start winding down this long, holiday weekend. Soon it’ll be back to the office. But we’ll always have the memories of another Thanksgiving. I hope you had a chance to go and spend some time with friends and loved ones, hopefully playing a game or two in there.
Anyway, as for today, we’ve got some bite-sized stories for you as you bite on leftover turkey sandwiches or (in my case) gallons of turkey soup.
Today’s stories include: This War of Mine Tabletop Game Announced, Luma Dice On Kickstarter Now, Brother Vinni’s Dungeon Sisters Indiegogo Passes Funding Goal, Ratgard Releases Vampyrum surface-to-air missile system, and The A.S.P. Troopers are Coming From Nexus Miniatures.
Hello everyone and welcome to Sunday. It’s the start of my favorite week. Thanksgiving is coming up and I simply can’t wait. Sure, you may have your favorite holiday as Halloween or Christmas or Australia Day or whatever, and those are certainly all fine holidays. For me? It’s Thanksgiving. I only wish I had access to a professional kitchen.
But anyway, that’s Thursday. Currently, it’s Sunday. That means a few bite-sized stories to bring to you.
Today’s batch includes: 28mm Fantasy Rock Army On Indiegogo, Khurasan releases 22nd Century Range, Nexus Miniatures Prize Draw Happening Now, Custom Handmade Dice Bags Up On Etsy, and Geek Fever’s Black Friday Crowd Sale is LIVE.
Well, what a week we’ve had, eh?
Lotsa big stuff going on, not least of which is the apparent return of specialty games to GW. I look forward to where that will lead. In the meantime, you can expect a review of the most-recent specialty game from them, Betrayal at Calth, tomorrow. So be sure to check back for that.
In the meantime, though, we have a collection of bite-sized stories to bring you.
Today’s batch includes: Another World Miniatures Releases Maya Miniature, Grand Manoeuvre to publish Nineteenth Century Wargames rules in February, Final Hours for Kill Dr. Lucky On Kickstarter, Warmachine: Tactics Mercenary Warcaster Screenshot previews, Ratgard: Preview of the New Anti-aircraft missile, Kromlech New Release – Plaguelings, Warbears and Stagriders Funded: On to Awesome Stretch Goals, Braille RPG Dice from 64 Oz. Games on Kickstarter, Brigade Models Release New Aeronef Models, and Bring Back Mystery Science Theater 3000 On Kickstarter.
Ulfsark Games mostly makes custom dice, coins, and tokens, but they’re working their way into making a new game. It has a far-Eastern feel, teamed up with anthropomorphic animals (I’m hoping for a “Chinese Boxing Ursus Maritimus” will be included). They’ve got a Beta version of the rulebook and some stats cards posted online for you to check out.
We have made it to Friday, ladies and gentlemen. Rejoice!
And, like, go eat some candy or something because of Halloween. Have yourself a good time.
Speaking of bite-size items such as those “fun” size candies (never did quite figure out what was so “fun” about them, but there we are, then), we have our usual platter of stories for you. These, however, know exactly why they’re fun.
In this batch we have: Free 15mm personality figure: Gaius Marius in Baueda Indiegogo Campaign, Final Day for Anarchy Models HD Stencils Wave 2 Kickstarter, The Prang by Eli Arndt moving to The Ion Age soon, Arena Rex Faction Dice Now Available, New Modern Adventurers & Mercs From Warhansa, and Plaid Hat Games Posts Halloween Downloadable Content for Mice & Mystics.
We’re getting there, people. We’re making our way to the weekend. For many, it will start with some Halloween parties tomorrow night. Any of you got any Halloween gaming plans? I’m thinking I might just get a bunch of bags of candy and watch all the Evil Dead movies and then figure out what else from there. Anyone wanna come over and join in? 😉
At the moment, though, we’ve got some stories to make your gaming table look as good as possible. It’s time for another Terrain Corner.
Today we have: Chaos Factory Fantasy Sports Accessory/Field Indiegogo Campaign Running Now, Scenery Dice are now available, and Fat Dragon adds ‘snap-lock’ cave terrain to Kickstarter.
Avast ye maties and shiver me timbers! Thar be new releases for Rum & Bones afoot! Yar arr yarr! I loddie the hotpants!
Ok, enough pirate-speak. Talk Like A Pirate Day is over with. What isn’t over with is the release day for Mazu’s Dreadful Curse for Rum & Bones. That’s happening all day today. And, y’know, you can pick it up after today, too.
And here we are again at Wednesday. I hope your week is treating you well. The hectic nature of the early week is making its way for a generally calm mid-week. With any luck, that will continue on.
One thing we have going on today is our Midweek Snippets.
This batch of bite-sized stories includes: Precis Intermedia is now taking pre-orders for the Amazing 8in1 Die, Hitech Miniatures New Exorcist Released, Combat Patrol: WWII To Be Released Soon, Syrinscape Releases Spooky Soundpack for Halloween, Dark Art Studios Releases Gothrac – Zombie Dragon, Another World Miniatures Releases Anjelika Female Commissar, Dicey Ventures Studios Launches the Venture Dice Bag on Kickstarter, 15 Days Left For Ninja Crusade 2nd Edition On Kickstarter, Binary Dice Sets On Kickstarter, Brigade Models Release New SF Wheeled Tanks, Crooked Claw Goblins Up On Indiegogo, and New Arc Markers Available From Tabletop-Art.
The week rolls on. To think we’ve already made it to Wednesday. We deserve something nice. Like… a batch of bite-sized stories served up all in one place for your convenience. Yeah, that sounds good.
So let’s get to it.

If you like MOBA-style video games, then the gameplay for Rum & Bones should be right up your alley. Batten down the hatches! Hoist the main sail! And other pirate cliches!
Friday! Glorious Friday!
Time to kick back, relax, and hopefully get some gaming on.
It’s also time for another group of bite-sized stories before we head into the weekend.
In this batch we have: Kromlech Releases New Battle Dice colors, Syrinscape Launches In Hell’s Bright Shadow for the New Pathfinder Adventure Path Hell’s Rebels, Mounted Dwarf Musketeers Up On Kickstarter, Khurasan releases 15mm Cavemen, Hitech Miniatures Releases Lord Incantator Krabathor on Hellworm, a couple more installments of The Fiver, SuperBlue Adder released at The Ion Age, Another Warthrone approved army list: Beastmen from Warhammer, Warpaints Quickshade Ink Set II – out now From The Army Painter, Cabals Kickstarter relaunching soon, Gabriel Cross from Icarus Miniatures Available Now, and Alternative Armies releases two classic Dogmen packs.
Pulp Monsters, makers of Pulp City loves their fans. They love you so much, they want you to be able to get their superhero and supervillain figures for cheaper than you’d usually have to spend. So they’re having a “Thanks to Our Fans” sale over in their webshop.
We keep chugging along, beautiful TGN readers. The week rolls by and we continue on as well. It’s that time once more to bring you some bite-sized stories we’ve come across in the past few days.
In this batch we have: New Goodies in the Advanced Deployment store, New Warthrone approved army list: Tomb Kings from Warhammer, Tobsen77 Iron Horse huge artillery now available, First Hammer’s Slammer Detachment Pack Available from Brigade Models, Crooked Dice release the Weed, Meridian Miniatures releases Rat Warlock, Ogres coming soon at 15mm.co.uk, Nvenom8 Designs Releases Kraken D20, West Wind Productions Releases Steam Velocipede for Empire of the Dead, New American Civil War Zouaves from All the King’s Men, and Classic Large Goblins now at 15mm.co.uk.
We continue on with the post-Gen Con week’s work. Though I was able to keep up with a lot of things, obviously, things are going to fall behind in some areas. I’m almost out of the mountain of e-mails I’d gotten over the weekend. If I’ve not replied to you yet, don’t worry, I will. There’s just a lot to sort through.
At the moment, though, it’s sorting through a bunch of bite-sized stories.
This time around we’ve got: Age of Tyrants Updates Rulebook, New Heroic Scale Female Heads from Statuesque Miniatures, Fablestone Dice: Bone Origins now on Kickstarter – fantasy themed dice with innovative features, Another Warthrone approved army list: High Elves from Warhammer, Khurasan releases 15mm Middle Eastern Irregulars, Free Miniature for August from The Ion Age, Pay What You Want Adventure Module Now Available, New 32mm Lava themed bases Available from Dark Art Miniatures, Evil Bear Wargames First Release: Bear Tactical Hardsuits, and some more installments of The Fiver from The Meeple Mechanic.
The work week rolls on. We’ve made it halfway through. Just another couple days and we’ll be blissfully back into the weekend. For some of you, that weekend will include San Diego Comic Con. I… will not be there. That’s probably a good thing. I doubt I’d do well in July in California with what feels like a hundred billion other people all crammed into one place.
Anyway, that aside, we’ve got another batch of bite-sized stories for you.
Today we have: Gods and Monsters previews Herald of Moros art and 3D render, Star Crush Starship Miniatures on Kickstarter, BTR Innovations Let’s Play Dice on Kickstarter, The Shattered Crown previews Stag Rider sculpt, Atlantis Miniatures Live on Kickstarter, Meridian Miniatures unleash Chibi Zombies, Syrinscape Releases New Dragon’s Demand Soundscapes and more, Zombie Dice is back from Steve Jackson Games, Oddzial Osmy’s 3mm and 15mm June Releases Arrive at PicoArmor, and Freeblades Specialty Tiered Dice sets added to Kickstarter rewards.
Two non-Napoleonic stories from Warlord? Who knew it could be so!
Well, they’ll be back with one tomorrow. So don’t worry too much.
This time they’re adding reinforcements to your Terminator Genisys collection. The main box is available (check out our unboxing here). Now they have a box of Endoskeletons, Resistance Soldiers, extra Dice, and the Rulebook available separately.
It’s Sunday. Here in the States, it’s Father’s Day. If you are a father, hope you have a great Father’s Day. If you’re not a father, I still hope you have a great day, regardless. As for me, I’m sitting here at the start of the last day of CMON Expo 2015. It’s been a great time. Very busy, lots of panels yesterday. I hope you enjoyed the reports of all the new stuff. I’ll get you a link to the other photo collections here in a minute from yesterday, and there will be some more today.
But anyway, for the moment, we’re getting together the bite-sized stories we’ve come across in the past couple days.
In this batch we have: Dragon Forge Tech-Deck Additions – Expansion Base Set Kickstarter Running Now, Pedion Wall System unlocked, New Dwarves Female Regiment 28mm from Scibor, Fantasy Concept Cards IV: Creatures and Treasures on Kickstarter Now, Dungeon Revolutions is available now from Thomarillion, Amber Portable Weapon and Gun Crew at The Ion Age, 28mm Satyr Group now available from Lone Gunman Games, Khurasan releases planet-killing space monster, Tabletop-Art Ancestral Ruins RL 30mm and 40mm Deals Available Now, Brigade Models – New 15mm Releases, Battle Flag : Cloth Battlemats for Wargames Indiegogo, Q-Workshop to Publish Shadowrun Dice, Secret Weapon Adds Five New Knight Bases, Manorhouse Workshop Launches Underground Terrain Kickstarter, Post Captain Master Index Pt 3 Shore Raids Chapters, and Heroic Maps – Modular Kit: Town – Streets & Houses.
The number of people looking to fight against the zombie hordes in Zombicide: Black Plague keep rising. They have made it past the $2mil. mark on the Kickstarter campaign. To celebrate, they wanted to something big… very big. Horrendously, grotesquely, hugely big. That something is… the Ablobination.
It would seem as though the change of venue has caught the attention of gamers the world over. The launch of Zombicide: Black Plague quickly passed the funding goal (even with the hiccup in the server service that Kickstarter had right at the start) and has shot up well over $1 million in its first day (we’re even still a couple hours from a full 24 hours since time of launch). This is more than double what Rue Morgue made on its first day (that had previously held the title for “biggest launch day total for Zombicide).
YayforFriday! That means group lunch here at the office. We did Indian last week. Not sure what we’ll do this week yet. But when this posts, assume I’m eating yummy things.
Speaking of bites, we’ve got our regular section of bite-size stories that we present to you here.
Today’s batch includes:
New Word War II Single Storey Houses from Warlord Games and Sarissa Precision
DC Comics Deck-Building Game Playmats are now available from Cryptozoic
Critical Injury and Critical Hit Decks Are Available Now for the Star Wars RPG from Fantasy Flight Games
Khurasan releases 15mm Napoleonic Persians
Last Hours for Swamped on Kickstarter
New Female Raider mini from Brother Vinni
Rebel Minis Releases 28mm Earth Force Pathfinders
New Bank terrain kit from Burn In Designs
Inverse Metal Dice Currently Funding on Kickstarter
Grinning Skull Wave 2 Set Released
Topside Minis Releases WWII Atlantic/Med Sets
New range of 28mm post-apocalyptic vehicles from Pardulon Models
While everyone’s chomping at the bit to get to Black Plague, previous seasons of Zombicide are making their way to store shelves near you, as well as online. CMON has the latest batch of releases for the original version of the game up on their website. The big one for this release is the Angry Neighbors expansion pack, but that’s not all. Survivors! Zombies! Dice!
Warlord Games will be shipping the Terminator Genisys: The War Against The Machines starter sets soon. However, as we all know, starter sets are great for starting, but they’re not so great when you really want to get into the real nuts and bolts of a game. That takes expansion packs. Warlord’s showing off the first three of those packs. And now you can see them below the cut!
There’s also a new trailer out for the movie that we’ve embedded below, too.
*does a little “It’s Friday” dance around the office* un-cha, un-cha, un-cha, un-cha, wakachika, wakachika, wakachika, wakachika, boom-nau-nau da-boom-da mananga-nanga, boom-nau-nau da-boom-da mananga-nanga. Oh, hey there. Did you know that it’s Friday? 3-day-weekend sort of Friday, even. Booyah!
Granted… I’ll still be back posting news on Monday, but don’t let that spoil the mood. It’s still a Friday after-all.
And with that we have our regular batch of bite-sized stories we’ve collected here for you.
This time around we have: New Sarissa Precision Dutch/Belgian Houses from Warlord Games, PolyHero Dice Warrior Set on Kickstarter, The Prototype 15mm SuperBlue Adder Vehicle from The Ion Age, Plastic 20th Century Brick Battlezones terrain pre-order from Mantic, Gamboni Board Game Relaunch Coming Sunday, Karnivore Koala – German Version Unlocked, Immortal Launches on Kickstarter Next Week, Apocalypse post-apocalyptic RPG System up on Indiegogo, SHM76 Grav Van released at 15mm.co.uk, and Sisters of Serens Unlocks Free Minis in Indiegogo Campaign.
My fellow TGN readers, welcome to another Sunday Edition. I hope your Saturday was good and your Sunday is being productive. My D&D group from yesterday came close to TPK at least twice. But that’s what happens when you charge up to 4 Dire Bears and basically give them a turn to munch on your character before the next character from the party is there to help. Oh well. Nobody hit -10, so they were able to keep-on keepin’-on.
As for today, we’ve got another batch of bite-sized stories for you.
This set includes: New Kromlech Releases – Static Grass and Battle Dice, Oddzial Osmy’s 3mm April Releases Arrive at PicoArmor, Heroic Maps – Explorer: Wild Places released, Manorhouse Workshop Update #26 – Modular Underground Project – In the box, Copper Mine Miniatures running Mechanical Steamhorse Kickstarter, Brutal Force – Icarus Miniature Preview Jesse Pope, and Victrix Ltd. Limited Edition Rude Roman shield transfers.
Wednesday. The previous weekend is two days behind us. The next weekend is two days ahead of us. We are perched atop a precipice. Which isn’t to say “it’s all downhill from here,” but I guess you could consider it as such.
At the very least, I hope the first half of the week went smoothly and that the rest of the week follows suit.
In the meantime, we’ve got our collection of bite-sized stories we want to present to you now.
In this batch we have: Adarga Castings releases new 28mm Korean War Communist Forces, Heroic Maps Releases Wardenhale: Docks, The Gentleman’s Query, A Refined Coin Series – Coin #1 on Kickstarter, Voodooworx Miniatures Launch New Website, Warfighter/Skirmish Sangin “Hearts and Minds” Free Scenario Releases, 15mm Orc Buildings pre-order offer at 15mm.co.uk, Punkapocalyptic Previews Stretch Goals on Indiegogo, Monster Dice by Trilania up on Kickstarter, Brigade Models – new 2mm English Forts, Red Duke Games Announces Upcoming Kickstarter for Numinous card game, Dungeon Revolutions by Brickerium coming soon to Kickstarter, and Free Robot Stretch Goal Added to Ramshackle Robots Kickstarter.
Bigsby’s Bargain Box is up on Kickstarter and looking for some funding. What are Bigsby’s Bargain Boxes? They’re an entire game night in a single kit. Not only are there adventures for your gaming group (1-3 session mini-campaigns), but there’s pre-generated characters for each adventure, plus a USB drive full of sound effects, as well as digital editions of the campaign and characters. But wait, there’s more! They also give you dice (because everyone loves getting dice) and props for the adventure. Also included are recipes for simple-to-make meals to go along with it all (as cooking is one of my hobbies, this part intrigues me the most).
The campaign is running now and has 17 days more to go.
From the campaign: Continue reading
