Friday Snippets Corner

Hey everyone.
Well, the first week of the year is coming to a close. It’s been… an odd one. Monday I had off. Tuesday I had to take my car in for repairs (which got finished up on Thursday, since they had to order in a part). Wednesday and Thursday I had some stomach issues. Now it’s Friday and everyone here in Atlanta is bracing for a “huge snowstorm” that’s on its way. Hopefully it’s not too bad and everyone out there stays safe.
But just as everyone is stocking up on bread and milk, let’s stock up on some bite-sized gaming stories, as well as some terrain pieces from this week.

As such, we have: Flat Plastic Miniatures 2 Up On Kickstarter, New Sleeves Unlocked in Mage Company Kickstarter, New Metalized Discworld Death Bust From Micro Art Studio, New Magnetic Foil Sets Available From Tabletop-Art, Avatars of War Having Plastic Harpies Sale This Week, Brigade Models 6mm Habitation Dome Released, Heer46 launches Gebirgsjaeger Kickstarter, Molecules of Hatred: Wulfrim Irongrudge Available, and Acheson Releases More Dungeon Worlds Part 2 Figures.

The final week of 2016 continues on. I know a lot of people are enjoying a bit of a break here at the end of the year. Many game companies are taking a little bit of time off. But that’s not to say we don’t have a good bit of bite-sized stories to snack on.

So let’s get to it.

Today we have: Tactical folding kit for board RPGs on Indiegogo, Victoria Miniatures Previews 2017 Releases, Nightmare Forest: Alien Invasion Coming to Kickstarter, Oddzial Osmy’s 3mm December Releases Arrive at PicoArmor, Advanced Deployment After Christmas Sale, New Battle Rulers Available from Kromlech, and Tercio Creativo Christmas Offer Going On Now.

Friday Terrain Snippets

Hey guys. You might’ve noticed we didn’t have a Terrain Corner yesterday. That’s because I was whisked away to help work on a super-ultra-deep-covert project. Or, being that a lot of companies are currently on holiday, there wasn’t much to report on. One of the two. Anyway, so today we’ve got a combined Terrain Corner/Friday Snippets for you.

Today we have: Coffin Set 1 Available From Tabletop-Art, Dust Town Gaming Mat Available From Pwork Wargames, MAGE Company launches on Kickstarter the MCG Premium Sleeves, and New Infinity dedicated 70mm Tech Round base From Micro Art Studio.

The week rolls along. Hopefully it’s going well for you. Mine’s been very busy. But that’s meant things are going by quickly. Quickly is good and bad in some cases, as there’s a lot to still get done by the end of the year. With Christmas this week and then New Year’s the week after, there’s lots of end-of-the-year items to work through in the next week and a half. If we’re gonna make it through, we need to keep our energy up. That means chowing down on bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Apocalyptic Upgrades: Viral Outbreak Up On Kickstarter, The Cardmogrifier Up On Kickstarter, Ainsty Castings December Sale, Purgatory enters the Pledge Manager, Ramshackle Games Previews Orc Rider For Jet Bike Kickstarter, Tercio Creativo Holiday Sale Happening Now, Paper U-Wing transport released, and Brother Vinni Releases Ingrid female Viking trumpter.

Man, it is busy over here on this side of the screen. Pretty much all week there’s been stuff going on. I’m sure that’s part of why it feels like it’s really flown by… And I’ve still not really gotten a handle on what I’m going to do with my D&D group tomorrow! Gah! There’ll be time for that later (hopefully, theoretically, grammatically, esoterically). But, if we’re to keep up our energy, we should nosh on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Avignon: Pilgrimage Coming To Kickstarter in January, CloseYa network is open for a public beta in US, WW1 Themed Dice to be released in January from I Will Never Grow Up, Aenor Miniatures website Online, Week 3 December Deals Available From Greater Than Games, Merry Bitsmass Weekend Promo from Kromlech, and 3D Preview Posted For Ether Wars.

Today’s a day to celebrate. Why? It’s my 5th anniversary with TGN. Yes, on this day, 5 years ago, I made my first post on the site. It was the new plastic Warp Wolf kit that Privateer Press was coming out with. Oh how gaming has changed since then. I remember having a conversation, a couple months into my tenure, with Ross “The Legend” Thompson (my boss at the time) about, “These Kickstarter-things.”
So, to celebrate, let’s have a bunch of bite-sized gaming stories.
What? We do that every Wednesday? Well, fine, be that way.

Today we have: Dice Coins 2 Up On Kickstarter, I Will Never Grow Up becomes exclusive distributor of Field Marshal Games products, Ramshackle Games Posts Stretch Goal Goblin For Jet Bike Kickstarter, New Discworld Death Bust -15% discount, Factions Fantasy Playing Cards Coming To Kickstarter in January, New Releases Available From Scotia Grendel, Casual Game Revolution Posts 2017 Tabletop Gaming Conventions Map, Mage Company To Launch Sleeves and Gaming Accessories Kickstarter, Kill the Unicorns Coming to Kickstarter in June, New Morbid Legionary Torsos From Kromlech, Temple of Isis Round Lip Bases Now Available From Tabletop-Art, New Releases And Final Christmas Sale From Advanced Deployment, Flatminis 2D preprinted miniatures are now available as PDF download, Two new Characters bring gold to Talisman: Digital Edition, and Khurasan releases 15mm Hezbollah and Syrian Government Forces.

New Releases For Batman Miniatures Game From Knight Models

The DC Universe is full of plenty of colorful characters that have had different iterations over the years. Many of those different versions have made their way into the Batman Miniatures Game from Knight Models. It seems there’s always another version of Batman and Robin to add to the game. Well, with the latest set of releases, there’s a new version of Batman and Robin, as well as some of their more-formidable foes.

Well, this rocket-fast week is rocket-fastly coming to an end (yes, I made up a word there. It’s not a very good word, but there it is). The weekend stretches before us like a blank canvas. Personally? I’m going to be playing some Guild Ball, putting together some Kingdom Death (or, hopefully, just playing more Guild Ball 😛 ), and then making a fruitcake (because I actually like fruitcake). But that’s as may be. If I’m going to be doing all that, I should fill up on bite-sized gaming stories to make sure I get through it all.

Today we have: Gamelyn Games announces Heroes’ of Land, Air & Sea, Steampunk 35mm Miniatures from Topexx Dominions Now Live on Kickstarter, HSD Miniatures Expansion 1 on Kickstarter, and Battle Dice Weekend Promo From Bits of War.

I technically have the day off today. Why? Because CMON went public on the Hong Kong stock exchange and they’re giving us the day off to celebrate. But the news doesn’t stop just because the office is closed. Neither rain, nor sleet, nor snow, nor slush, shal keep me from giving you your news (ok, so maybe eating lots of food last week would keep me from doing it, but still…). Gonna be a bit shorter day today, but I still want to get you your bite-sized gaming stories. So let’s get to it.

On the platter today, we have: Ramshackle Games Releases the Boom Wagon, Gods & Goddesses 5th edition supplement coming to Kickstarter in February, Kromlech New Release: Vehicle Hull Points Markers, Raging Heroes Sale Extended Through This Weekend, Aether Captains: Action Cards Update, Liam Games distributes MAGE Company in Israel, and Czacha Games to publish Polish Raid and Trade in 2017.

It’s the last day of November. We’re 11/12s of the way through the year. We just might make it after all.
Actually, I’m looking forward to this weekend. It should be a good time, as they generally are. I mean, weekend, right!?

Happy Thanksgiving Eve!
Or, for those of you not in the US. Happy Wednesday!
As for me, I’m going to be busy when I get home. I need to bake another pumpkin pie, put turkey 1 into the brine bucket, speed-thaw turkey 2 (place in cold, running water for a couple hours), and make whipped cream for the pies (cream, sugar, and spices). Gonna be very busy, but should be fun. But to have enough energy for that, I need to nosh on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today we have: New Infinity Dice Sets From Corvus Belli, New Bases Available From Micro Art Studio, BattleScribe 2.0 Released, Dungeonland PnP is now available and Kickstarter Stretch Goals are revealed, New Alien Heads From Ramshackle Games, Okumarts Games team up with GG Studios, New Releases Available From Dark Sword Miniatures, Divine Art Playing Cards up On Kickstarter, Comrades in Battle Stretch Goal Levels Lowered, Head set Multi Pack From Ramshackle Games, NPC For Hire Game Aid On Kickstarter, New Temple of Isis Bases From Tabletop-Art, Fusion Bases by Wamp Up On Kickstarter, Highway System Coming to Kickstarter, New Female Greatcoat Troops Available From Victoria Miniatures, and New Hordes Token Sets Available From Advanced Deployment.

How’s everyone doing today? Ready for the weekend? I think I’m gonna keep mine rather chill, just putting together the last of my friend’s Guild Ball stuff. They’re already assembled. They just need greenstuff work done on ’em (filling in some small gaps, filling in the base slots, stuff like that). Other than that… not much. Plan for Thanksgiving, I guess.

But as for right now, it’s time to nosh on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today we have: New D&D Icons of the Realms Miniatures Starter Set Now Available, Steamforged Previews Steamcon/Black Friday Sale, Confrontation Evolution Fan-Made Rules Posted, Wamp releases Master of Roots Bust, Ever wonder what Kriegsspiel Dice looked like?, Super Chibi Round 2 – Reboot Late Pledges now open, Final Days for Portable Paint Station On Kickstarter, New Numidian Infantry Available From Victrix, Spot It!

Time has been playing weird tricks this week, I feel. The first several days flew by. Thursday took an eternity. Now, today’s doing a little bit of both. I feel like it should be later than it is, so it feels like it’s been a long time since this morning… but I’ve also gotten a ton of stuff done. So I dunno. I do know that I’m possibly going to be playing some Guild Ball this evening and then some D&D tomorrow. So that’s cool. Better pack myself full of energy with some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: New Imperial Knight Heads From Forge World, Knight Models Previews Suicide Squad Dice, Kromlech New Release: Legionary Shotgun, Angels and Demons join Flatminis 2D miniatures range, Shadows of Esteren Announces Partnership with Syrinscape, Talisman is Free to Play This Weekend Only, Comrades in Battle Reaches Funding Goal, 15mm Naval Crews Range is Back From Capitan Games, and Final Days for Tavern Masters Kickstarter.

Not sure why, but this week’s been a time enigma. I woke up this morning going, “wow, already Wednesday!” But since I’ve been here at the office, it’s been the exact opposite. “How is it only 10am? I feel like I’ve been here forever!” What might help is noshing on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today in the platter we have: Brigade Models New Release Update, New Ammunition Chain Sets From Tabletop-Art, Victoria Miniatures Female Victorian Guard Now Available, Motherland Tokens now available from Advanced Deployment, Dek-Den: Deck Building Game Assistant On Kickstarter, Aenor Miniatures First Releases Now Available, Terrible Kids Stuff releases Goblin Shaman, Kromlech New Release: Legionary Heavy Thunder Gun with Heavy Flamer, Khurasan releases Tah-sig (non-humanoid alien) range, Ulisses Spiele GmbH To Take Over Publishing Fading Suns RPG, and 25x50mm flat bases Now available From Tabletop-Art.

New 40k and Hobbit Releases Available To Order From Forge World

Well, sort of two ends of the spectrum in terms of new releases from Forge World this week. It’s rare enough that we see even releases for Age of Sigmar on there. But a Lord of the Rings release? I can’t remember the last one of those. Along with some new dwarves, there’s also a couple of 40k releases as well. Told you it was two ends of the spectrum.

We’re reaching the peak. After this, it’s a slide back down to the weekend. I’m hoping to have some friends over for gaming and cooking, as well as basically a “mini-Halloween” party (my apartment’s not really that big. Hard to have more than 4-5 people over 😛 ). There will be Cryx Necrotite Sugar Cookies, Atomic Peanut Butter Balls, and a bubbling cauldron of gumbo.
But that’s as may be. Right now, we’ve got a bunch of bite-size gaming stories to give you.

On the platter today we have: Zucati Dice: Retro Classic Pure Aluminum Dice On Kickstarter, Totentanz Miniatures to Make Corvus Belli’s 15mm Historical Miniatures Range, Purgatory Shows off 2 freshly completed models for the Kickstarter, New Swan Faction Tokens from Advanced Deployment Now Available, Ramshackle Abomination and Robot Sale, Armorcast LLC announces the Fifth Cinematic Effects Modeling Contest, Last Days To Enter Tercio Creativo’s Wipley Drawing, New Releases Available From Micro Art Studio, Ouroboros Miniatures’ First Release Now Available, 5-Minute Dungeon Coming to Kickstarter Next Week, and Era: The Consortium – A Universe of Expansions Kickstarter in the last week.

Skirmish Virtual Tabletop Relaunches on Kickstarter

Pretty much all of us have people we’d love to game with more often. Unfortunately, teleportation technology hasn’t quite been worked out yet. So while you’d like to game with friends in other states, countries, or even hemispheres, it’s not so easy to do. However, with a virtual tabletop program, you can get the feeling of all of you in one spot, gaming together. The Skirmish Virtual Tabletop didn’t quite make it the first time they were on Kickstarter. However, they’ve retooled, finishing up their closed beta, and are back up looking to get funded this next time around.

And we have the week continuing along. Seems this one’s going rather slowly, if you asked me. Earlier today, I looked at the clock and went, “How is it only just after 10am? I’ve been here in the office for the past 17 hours!” Note: I’d not actually been here 17 hours at that point. Just seemed like it. Perhaps snacking on some bite-sized gaming stories will help out.

Today on the platter we have: Krakon Games Running Frills & Fauna Kickstarter, Gioconomicon Posts Photos From Spiel 2016, On Target Green & Red Lasers For Line of Sight On Kickstarter, Mojo Tray System: Modular Transport On Kickstarter, New releases from Terrible Kids Stuff – First half of October 2016, New Condition Markers, Melee Widgets and Base Inserts from Advanced Deployment, The Roots of Magic: Students of Sorcery Kickstarter coming in November, Divine Art Playing Cards Relaunched on Kickstarter, and Devils Dungeon Kickstarter – Milestone Unlocked.

Fantasy Flight Games Releases The Delve For the Descent App

There’s sometimes an issue that can come up with our favorite games: having the same thing happen all the time. Even games with lots of randomizing factors can end up feeling a bit same-y if you play them a lot. Well, Fantasy Flight Games is hoping to make sure your games of Descent have a bit more variety with The Delve.

Wednesday already? This week sure seems to be moving along. That’s very much not a complaint, mind you. I’ve got board game day coming up this Saturday. We’re also going to be starting our new D&D game. So I’m very much ready for it to be Saturday. But if I want to keep up this pace, I’d better refuel on some bite-sized gaming stories.

I don’t know about you, but my week has been busy. Lots of news. Lots of proofing projects. Lots of e-mails to reply to about a myriad of things. And tonight’s going to be busy, too. Friend’s birthday party tomorrow, so I’ll be doing some baking to take to the party. Pumpkin snickerdoodles, to be specific. I’m going to make them a lot smaller than my usual cookies I make, then make a cream cheese filling and basically make them Oreos with it. It’s the first pumpkin-flavored thing I’m making this year.
Speaking of bite-size morsels of joy, we’ve got our regular assortment of stories for you.

On the platter today we have: Kromlech New Release: Legionary Heavy Thunder Gun, Trapdoor Bringing Playbook Digital RPG Companion to Android, Mage Company launches new website for Dungeonland, Smart Device App Dized Being Soft-Launched October 2016, The Board Game Show Interviews The Donner Party Game Designer Greg Porter, New Lamia Available From Brother Vinni, Super Chibi Round 2 – Reboot Funded, Three New Mechs Available From Raging Heroes, Kromlech Weekend Promo: Orc Mech-Boss, and New Releases Available From Scotia Grendel.

The week continues to chug along. Hopefully yours has gone relatively easily. Mine’s certainly been busy. It might not look like it, but it’s been fairly hectic on this side of my screen. Writing posts, e-mailing people about all sorts of things, proofing projects for upcoming games. Just seems to always be another inbox full of stuff to take care of. That does mean the week’s gone by rather quickly, though, which is always nice. Anyway, if I want to keep my energy up, I should snack on some bite-sized gaming stories.

On the platter today, we have: KaYo Miniatures Running The Imitator Horror Mini Kickstarter, New Surakari Draco and Delphinus Miniature Kit Now Available, Deep Madness Board Game Coming To Kickstarter, Final Day For Loaded Dice On Kickstarter And Growler D100 Added, Official Infinity Dice Now Available, 10mm Fantasy Ogre Miniatures from Black Gate Miniatures Up On Kickstarter, New Elf Warriors Available From BlackChapel Miniatures, Diehard Miniatures: Eru-Kin Expansion, and Engraved Dice Towers by CrowScratches Up On Kickstarter.

Brace yourselves, everyone. The weekend is just about here. In only a couple of hours, the work week will be over and we’ll be free to have a couple days to do whatever we want. I’ve… not fully decided what I’m going to get into yet. Might just take it easy this weekend. Might have to find a new recipe to try out, though. But that’s for tomorrow. For the moment, what we have is a group of bite-sized gaming stories for you.

On the platter: Fanboy Forge Store Back Online, Cardboard Edison to Release Cobras on Kickstarter, Tabletop-Art 25mm Ancestral Ruins Bases Now Available, Raider Girl by Brother Vinni Now Available, The Army Painter Announces New Paint Sets, and Brigade Models Releases New Grav Bikes.

Friiiiiiidaaaaaaay! The gateway to the weekend. Hopefully you’ve got some gaming planned for the next couple days. I don’t have anything specific lined up, but there’s still plenty of time. At the very least, I’m thinking I want to make some brownies this weekend. Though I might throw in something a little special…
That being cayenne pepper. You know, I’ve heard a lot about mixing “heat” with “sweet” and am finally gonna give it a go. I’ll let you know about the results.

Anyway, before we get to those tasty bites, we have some tasty bites here to deal with.

On today’s platter we have: New Thousand Sons Legion Transfer Sheet From Forge World, Lead Adventure Miniatures Launches Astropolis Kickstarter, Terrible Kids Stuff Posts September New Releases, New Damage Trackers From Proxie Models, Syrinscape Releases Geek & Sundry’s Critical Role: Goblin Raid SoundPack, Code Orange Games Running Free Collision Model Giveaway Contest, Kromlech Weekend Promo: Jump Packs, Turncoat Games Running WWII Cavalry Kickstarter, and Sally 4th Posts Free Combat Patrol – Falklands War Supplement.

The work week continues along. It’s already half-over, in fact. Hopefully yours is going well. Mine’s not been great, but I’m making it through.

The week rolls on. We’re halfway there. The weekend is ever-closer as time marches on, and other sayings of “it’s not yesterday anymore!” It seems people around me are feeling a bit drained. Tuesday wasn’t the best for them, so they’re gonna try and regroup today. Along with that, getting some bite-size gaming stories in their brain will help out, I’m sure. So let’s get to that.

On today’s platter we have: Jess is done for Purgatory, Men and Monsters of Ethiopia Cardstock Characters Now Available, Final Week For The Lords of Rock On Kickstarter, Triple Ace Games Running Viking Dice Kickstarter, New Kromlech Release: Legionary Frag Launcher, and True 13 and 15 sided Dice now funding on Kickstarter.

We’ve made it, everyone. We’re into Friday. Just gonna finish up the day and we’ll be into the weekend. The end is in sight (and it’s not just a freight train at the end of the tunnel… … … I hope). But if we’re going to have a weekend full of gaming (as I hope to have), we’ll need to fuel up on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Alright, everyone. We’ve made it halfway through the week. With just a bit more work, we can make it once more to the weekend. I’m confident that we’ll be able to do it. But before then, we’ll need to refuel with some bite-sized gaming stories. Good thing that’s just what’s on the menu right now.

New Season II Mascots Available For Guild Ball

If you went to Gen Con and you play Guild Ball, you had a chance to pick up your Season II mascots while at the show. I know I picked up a Wrecker and a Tentacles while there. Well, if you didn’t go to the show, your own wait for the release of most of the Season II mascots is over. Four of them are now available over in the Steamforged webshop, along with a new carrying case.

Gen Con Day 3 Photos

I swear this show is just screaming by this year. It’s already the end of Day 3. Today will be the last day for Gen Con 2016. As usual for Gen Con Saturday, it was a whirlwind of activity. There was roaming the hall, taking photos most of the morning and early afternoon. Then there was the media event in the CMON booth. Expect a few more posts about games from that in the morning. My brain’s just too fried to do much more than get you a recap of the photos I posted earlier today.

So, I have made it to Indianapolis for Gen Con.
And I’m sitting in my hotel room, sorting e-mails, replying to e-mails, and typing up these posts. I hope you all appreciate it. 😉 😛
Anyway, seeing as it is Wednesday (though it certainly doesn’t feel like it, at least to me), it’s time for some midweek snippets. I know I need to stock up on some bite-sized gaming stories before the hurricane of activity that’ll happen over the next several days.
