Bio-Titan Giveaway Happening At Forge World

I live in Georgia, and the bugs here can get pretty big. Maybe not Florida or Louisiana big, but there’s been times I’ve found a multi-legged monster hanging out in a dark corner of my apartment. Thankfully, I had Raid on hand. Well, the inhabitants of the 41st Millennium need really big cans of Raid for when the Tyranids show up, and Forge World is giving away one of the biggest ones they’ve got.

X-Smash Tree Giveaway Happening Now From iello

You’ve probably seen videos of Christmas trees falling over (sometimes with the assistance of family pets) and causing damage. They’re cute and often hilarious. What’s not so funny, though, is when a massive Christmas tree starts stomping around downtown, wrecking entire city blocks at a time. That is, unless, you’re the one controlling said Christmas tree. And if you’d like to get your own for King of Tokyo or King of New York, there’s two ways to do so from iello Games.

Thursday Terrain Corner

It’s odd. Each day this week I’ve found myself, at some point, looking at the clock and going, “How is it only (time)?! Geeze! Today is taking forever!” And yet, in contradiction of that, I’ve also found myself going, “Whoah! It’s already (day)!? This week is flying by!” So while each day is taking forever, the week is just speeding past. I don’t really get it, but it does mean we’re already most of the way to the weekend. I’m in my Thursday shirt, and that means it’s time to make your gaming tables look as good as possible.

Today in the Terrain Corner we have: New Steampunk Ironclads From Burn In Designs, Tabletop Scenics Giving Away An Orc Quarters, Skull Forge Scenics Halloween Sale Happening Now, Acheson Creations at Fall In! and Millennium Con, New Modern Civilian 28mm – 32mm Vehicles From Antenociti’s Workshop, and New Masons and Brewers Terrain For Guild Ball.
