Orc Blitzer Available From Punga Miniatures

It’s starting to get rather chilly outside. Some of my coworkers have started turning on the heat at their place. I’m still in shorts, t-shirt, and sandals because I’m originally from Chicago. Other people that are still in shorts, t-shirt, and sandals are those out on tropical islands. It doesn’t get too cold there. And while that doesn’t seem like enough covering when playing football, it’s pretty much all this new Orc Blitzer’s got on from Punga Miniatures.

Steamforged Games Launches Halloween Sale, Previews New Union In Chains Alternates

Busy morning for Steamforged Games. First off, they’ve launched their Halloween Sale over in their webshop. They’ve got a trio of new kits you can pick up. One’s showcasing all the different characters that’ve died in the fluff, while another has a Pumpkin King vibe to it, with the last going back to the Bavarian traditions of Oktoberfest (hey, there is a Brewer’s Guild, after all). After that, they’ve also posed the next preview for the Union in Chains event. Will Gutter go to the Butchers or the Fishermen?

Recently, Deep-Cut Studios started a new program where you can send in a photo and they’ll print a custom game mat for you.

So, let’s take a look at the custom printing service from Deep-Cut Studios in this TGN Review!

Halloween Hellraisers Fantasy Football Teams Up On Kickstarter

You know, despite the fact that it’s October (and more than halfway through it, at that), we’ve had relatively few “creepy, crawly, spooky, and haunted” sort of stories. Well, this post looks to help turn the tide in a more Boris Karlof and Bella Legosi direction. The Halloween Hellraisers Kickstarter campaign looks to fund two spooky (with a bit more of a cartoony feel) fantasy football teams.

Steamforged Previews Alternate Decimates For Guild Ball

The Union in Chains event is continuing.
… All my teams are losing… badly (or I guess, they’re really great at losing, it would seem). So there’s a chance I won’t get any of these awesome resculpted models for my teams, but that doesn’t mean someone won’t be getting them. In this preview, we get a look at two different forms for Decimate. One will exist as an actual mini. The other will just be a picture.

This year, the scope of their worldwide event is a bit more extensive.

Steamforged Previews Alloy For Guild Ball

You might think that a team like the Blacksmith’s Guild would have all the subtlety of… well… a gigantic hammer smashing into a near-molten-hot piece of metal. “Ninja” might be the last thing on your mind. However, the Blacksmith’s Guild knows that just running headlong into the enemy at full speed might not always be the best strategy. As such, they’ve got Alloy, their “sneaky” Apprentice. Check out how they work in this preview.

Corvus Belli Previews The Dice From Aristeia

I think it’s safe to say that most miniatures games out there use dice of some kind. Sure, there are those that go for some other method, but the fairly tried-and-true method of randomization comes from little plastic polyhedrons bouncing across the table. Aristeia is no different. But Corvus Belli has decided not to use the D20s that fans of Infinity know. Instead, they’ve got special dice with unique symbols on them. In this preview, we get a look at the different types of dice and what those symbols mean.

Steamforged Previews Hearth For Guild Ball

The article, itself, already uses “Home is where the Hearth is,” so I can’t really do that one again. So, I’ll go with “Happy Hearth’s-Warming, everyone!” A few of you might get that, anyway. But enough on puns of this player’s name, Steamforged is showing off the next Master for the Blacksmith’s Guild. It’s Hearth and we get a look at her card as well as his 3D render.

He’s Ploughman and Steamforged has posted up his cards for you to check out.

Before a game, professional teams will do a lot to prepare for their upcoming opponent. That includes particular training regimens that are designed to specifically beat what the other team usually brings to the match. Until now, Guild Ball has lacked such a details.

They’ll be coming fully in Season 4, but they’re previewing the first of them now and looking for everyone’s feedback, much like they did with Guild Formations.
