Midweek Snippets

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.

Corvus Belli Looks Inside the 300 point Tohaa Pack

Getting an entire army in one purchase is something a lot of gamers I know like to do. It saves a bit of hassle of trying to find different models that come out to a particular point cost and, instead, gets you ready to play as soon as the glue dries on the figures. Corvus Belli has a new 300 point army pack for the Tohaa faction for Infinity. They’ve posted up a deeper look into just what you get.

Midweek Snippets

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.

Corvus Belli Turkey Day Giveaway Happening Today

Happy Turkey Day, everyone!
No, I don’t mean Thanksgiving. Don’t be so self-culturally-centered. I mean Turkey Victory Day! As is tradition for Corvus Belli, when there’s a National Day going on, they have a giveaway. Today’s no different.

Ukraine Day Giveaway Happening Now From Corvus Belli

Seems any day a country has their “national day,” Corvus Belli has themselves a giveaway to honor it. That’s not a bad thing, mind you. It’s certainly helping me think about various other countries around the world and their histories. Well, today’s Ukraine Day and, once more, Corvus Belli is giving away a free mini.

Monday Terrain Corner

Well, this last weekend was certainly less exciting than the one before. But taking a couple days to just kinda relax was nice. Also, it gave me a chance to put together my models I’d picked up at the show. So that was nice. Next week, a friend is having a board game day at their library. So I’ll get a chance to use those models. At the moment, though, it’s time to make your gaming tables look as good as possible. So let’s get to it.

Today we have: Operation Delta: Pwork Wargames Sci-Fi Gaming Mat Now Available, and

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.

Review Roundup

It’s the Saturday before Gen Con. A week from now we’ll be shoulder-deep in the show.

But, even with all the brouhaha, there’s time to bring you the reviews that you so desperately desire.

This week we have: Book of Nox Deluxe, Fishy Tactics, Agamemnon, Infinity Morat Rodoks, Tyrants of the Underdark, Scythe, Dungeon Busters, Dead of Winter: The Long Night, Portal: The Uncooperative Cake Acquistion Game, Vampire Hunters, Via Nebula, Antarctica, Titan Race, Agricola: Revised Edition, and Vikings on Board.

Review Roundup

Congratulations! You’ve made it to Saturday! *throws a little party*
Mine’s been busy so far. We’re just a couple weeks out from Gen Con, and that means about a million little things to get done (along with a couple big things) before heading to the show. My “To Do” list is imposing, but with steady work, I’ll chew through it all.
*looks at list* Hmm, “Type up Review Roundup.”
Alrighty…

Today we have: Sugi, Stak Bots, Food Fighters, Infinity Combined Army Onyx Force, Galaxy Defenders: Operation Strikeback Expansion, SET, Dragonwood, Millennium Blades, Beyond Baker Street, Dark Dealings, America, Fate of the Elder Gods, Burano, Happy Party, and My Village.

Corvus Belli France National Day Contest

Gee, I never realized how many “National Days” are all lumped pretty close together here in the summer. Thankfully, Corvus Belli has been reminding us of all of them by having a special contest on pretty much every one. Today’s France’s National Day and once again Corvus Belli is having a contest.

Corvus Belli Taking Pre-Orders For Operation Red Veil Box Set

We all know my love of 2-player starter sets for games. You and a buddy can make a single purchase, grab some glue, and get to playing as soon as the figures are together. It’s the single-purchase ease of a board game, but in a minis game. Well, Corvus Belli has a new Infinity starter box that they’re taking orders for. It’s called Operation Red Veil.

Corvus Belli Previews June Infinity Releases

The month of June is most of the way done. But there’s still plenty of time for companies to have releases for the month. Take, for example, Corvus Belli. They’ve posted up previews of their releases for June so you can go, “ooh” and “aah” before they’re posted in the company’s webshop.

Gaming really is an international hobby.

We’re coming to the end of the month and the start of a new one.

Latest Releases For Infinity Available In Corvus Belli Webshop

Quite a mixed bag in terms of Infinity releases this month from Corvus Belli. No, not “some good stuff and some terrible stuff” (since I don’t actually know the stats of all the models). And not in a, “some good looking models and some ugly models” (because Corvus Belli’s stuff always looks awesome). No, “mixed bag” in terms of, well… a healer with a shotgun, a new starter set, and a gigantic, multi-legged, tank-thing.

It’s early Sunday morning, and that means packing things up here in the room. It’s the final day of Adepticon. If you’ve been here, I hope you’ve had a good time. If you’ve not been here, I hope the photos have helped you live vicariously through my lens. To help with that, here’s some more galleries of events from the show.

And stay tuned this afternoon for the results from the Crystal Brush awards.

More Photos From Adepticon

Man! Today sure has been busy! I’ve gotten a bunch of photos taken. I’ve talked to a lot of really cool people. I’ve gotten a demo of a brand new game (demo report forthcoming). And I’ve had Portillo’s. Can’t get any better than that, really. So if you’ve not been following the coverage over on the TGN Facebook Page, here’s what you’ve been missing:

Human Sphere N3 Now Available To Pre-Order From Corvus Belli

The universe of Infinity has quite a lot of aliens running around. But it’s the humans that really take center stage. Such is the case with Human Sphere N3, a new sourcebook for Infinity, which updates a lot of the rules for the most recent edition of the game. Pre-orders for the books are being taken now.

Greek Independence Draw From Corvus Belli

Happy Greek Independence day! *waves a Greek flag and passes out the hummus and gyros*
The folks over at Corvus Belli are celebrating as well by giving away a Hector (and if you don’t know how Hector fits in with Greek culture, you need to go pick yourself up a book).

Corvus Belli Posts March Infinity Releases

Along with their special St. Patrick’s giveaway, Corvus Belli is also showing off the next group of releases for Infinity.
You know, not everyone in a miniatures game, especially one like Infinity, has to be a super-combat-wombat. It’s not always going to be a figure with a huge machine gun and tons of armor. You’ve got a lot of support figures. This month, a lot of the minis fall into that category.

Saint Patrick’s Day Draw From Corvus Belli

I am 50% Irish, from my mother’s side. So of course I’m celebrating St. Patrick’s. Though I don’t drink, so I’m just going for the corned beef without the Guinness. I’m also going to hopefully win me some Kaeltar Specialists from Corvus Belli in their St. Patrick’s Day drawing.

Thursday Terrain Corner

The week rolls along, picking up speed as we head down from Wednesday’s “hump day” through Thursday. It’s been a busy one around here. Lots of stuff going on for the conventions coming up (some next week, some at the end of the month). Lots of prep work to be done between now and then. Hopefully with some gaming in there somewhere. I’ve got a hobby project I’m going to be working on this weekend. What do you guys have planned?

Today, of course, we have another Terrain Corner feature.

In this installment, we have: Terminus Segments Kickstarter Final Days, Manorhouse Workshop Update #16 – Let’s make the 3D Bases suffer a bit, Battlemap Layers passed 80% Funding with 15 Days to Go, Lands of Mars: Pwork Wargames science fiction gaming mat now available, and Lots of new temple models from Infinity-Engine.

Corvus Belli Posts Up New Infinity Releases

In today’s Terrain Corner we got a look at some new terrain pieces specifically designed for Infinity. Well, if you’ve got terrain for Infinity, you might as well have some miniatures for Infinity. You might already have all of the current Infinity models, though (or at least, all of the ones you currently want to have). Well, it’s a good thing that Corvus Belli is coming out with some new Infinity models, then, isn’t it?

Thursday Terrain Corner

We’re working our way there, everyone. We’ve made it to Thursday. Just the rest of today and then Friday and we’ll be set for the weekend. Mine’s looking like it’ll be full of teaching someone Warmachine and then actually getting Guild Ball out on the table and playing. Both of those games need some terrain to really mix things up. I mean, sure, you could play them on flat, open boards, but where’s the fun in that? Thankfully, there’s terrain options. And we’ve got some more options available with this Terrain Corner.

Today’s articles include: Battlemap Layers Up On Kickstarter, Victorian Steampunk Modular Tabletop Terrain On Kickstarter, Warsenal releases Cosmica Wave Two for Infinity, Pwork Releases Darkburg Fantasy Gaming Mat, Manorhouse Workshop Update #13 – Inside the ruins, and Acheson’s Dungeon Worlds KickStarter Releases New Products.
