New French Releases For Team Yankee

When it comes to World Wars, the French have had a rather tough time at it. Usually one of the first countries singled out for attack, they’ve had to twice fight off enemy troops from within their borders. They’re looking to make sure that WWIII isn’t a repeat, and have the arms, equipment, and troops to make sure that this time, it’s closer to a Napoleonic War than a World War. New releases are now available for the French in Team Yankee. Battlefront has also created painting templates to make sure you get your figures looking accurate.

Free Nations Live Launch Weekend Starts Tomorrow

Time Zones are a funny thing. When it’s an hour or two, it’s just kinda like, “yeah, whatever.” But then you hit that point where there’s people already in tomorrow when you’re still in today. As Battlefront is over in New Zealand, they’re well ahead of those of us in the US and UK, and are often in the next day when many of us are just getting going with our regular routine. This means that they’ll begin their Live Launch Weekend for Free Nations tomorrow (well, tomorrow for most of us, 2 days from now for them, which is still just tomorrow, but… You know what, never mind.

Ostfront Releases Missile Threat (Modern Air Combat) Rules

I’d sort of always wanted to be a fighter pilot. My eyes have never been good enough for that sort of thing, but it was one of those dreams I had in the back of my mind as a kid. Now, certainly the potential of being a Top Gun are exceedingly slim, but I can still live vicariously through gaming. And that’s where Missile Threat comes in. It’s a new set of air combat rules by Ostfront that looks to accurately recreate air battles from the past 60 years. You can get your copy now (aviator glasses sold separately).

Midweek Snippets

I just realized this morning that this upcoming weekend is the last one before Christmas.
Ok, so, technically Christmas has one more weekend before it, but since it falls on a Monday, it means this upcoming week is the last one before the holiday. As such, I’ve just now realized how much baking I need to do (since that’s what I give as presents to friends). Looks like this Saturday’s shopping list is going to include a lot of unsalted butter, flour, and chocolate chips, plus whatever else I feel like throwing in. But before I get to those tasty treats, let’s get to today’s tasty treats in terms of bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: December Releases Available From Scotia Grendel, War in Christmas Village Sequel Up On Kickstarter, and HeresyLab Working on a New Line of Miniatures.

Battlefront Posts a Look Inside the Stripes Book for Team Yankee

WWIII is not currently happening. Let’s do our best to keep it that way, eh? I don’t really want Team Yankee to turn into a modern game, as opposed to just post-modern-sci-fi. So, for the meantime, these are just figurative, uh, figures. And in the Stripes book, Battlefront expands the U.S. options. Take a look at what you’ll get, and a bit more about items in this book.

Battlefront Posts New Force Org Charts for Flames of War and Team Yankee

It’s Friday! Gateway to the weekend.
I’m… just kinda chilling. Yeah… just chilling. Not gonna really go anywhere. Not really gonna do anything special. Just… chill. I think it’s a good idea to do that occasionally. And this weekend, it’s what I want/need.

Midweek Snippets

Halfway there.
We’re halfway to getting back to the weekend. Methinks I’m going to take it easy this weekend. I found out my LGS is going to be absolutely packed with several events running for games I don’t really play, so I’ll probably just veg at my place. I could use a relaxing couple of days, anyway. Though it does mean I still need to wait to break in my custom Guild Ball mat (more on that tomorrow. Stay tuned). In the meantime, I’m feeling a bit peckish, so how about noshing on some bite-sized gaming stories?

Today on the platter we have: New Options For Really Useful Box Storage System From Sally 4th, Statuesque Starport Able Spacewomen Now Available, New 3mm C-130 Hercules at PicoArmor, New Orc Hand Grenades Available From Kromlech, Impact!

Thursday Terrain Corner

The work week rolls along (that’s a pun for my friend Gavin who just dumped a bunch of ball bearings on the floor, apparently). We’re another step closer to that always-anticipated weekend (at least, I always am anticipating it). Here’s to hoping yours is filled with gaming (mine will probably be filled with baking). And when gaming, it’s good to have as good-looking a gaming table as you can. So let’s help with that.

We’re already halfway through the week. Having Monday off certainly helps with that. But as we continue our way through the week, I know I could still use a bit of a pick-me-up. So I’m going to nosh on some bite-sized gaming stories.

There’s a new book coming out for Team Yankee. It’s called Red Thunder, and as you’d expect from them, they’re having a whole day dedicated to features for it. That day, by the way, is tomorrow. It starts pretty early, too. I mean, for many of us, it’s this afternoon, since it’s beginning on New Zealand time.

Would you believe the year is half-over already? Yeah. As we stand on the cusp of July, the first half of the year is behind us. Is it going by fast for you, too? It certainly has for me. Personally, I’m ready for autumn, because it’s my favorite time of year. Plus, I want to make pumpkin pie, and if I tried to serve that now, people would be all, “… no.” Ah well. Since I can’t munch on pumpkin pie, I can still munch on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: New 15mm BMP-1P from Khurasan, New releases from Terrible Kids Stuff – July 2017, Legionary Saber Jetbike Available From Kromlech, Hand of Glory Miniatures Coming to Kickstarter Next Month, Brigade Models Release 6mm Neo-Soviet Tanks, and Cold War Miniatures Launches Hawkmen Kickstarter.

The week continues along. We’ll get back to that ever-loving weekend soon. Just another couple of days and it’ll be time once more. And I’m sure a lot of people in the US are going to be celebrating this weekend. With the 4th of July being a Tuesday this year, I’m guessing a lot of people are going to take this weekend to grill, shoot off some fireworks, and just celebrate America. I know I’m getting together with some friends on Saturday for just that sort of thing. I’m sure there’ll be tasty snacks there. Let’s snack on some tasty bite-sized gaming stories now, too.

Hind & Seek Miniatures Game Rules Released

Afghanistan has a pretty long history of conflict. For around a decade, it was the Russians that were trying to go in and take over the place. It didn’t turn out so well for them. But how did a technologically-superior group have such issues? Well, you can find out in Hind & Seek, a new set of rules that recreates the Soviet-Afghan war of 1979-1989. The book is available now.

The weekend is just about upon us, everyone. For those in the States, it’s a 3-day weekend for many. Here’s to hoping that you’ve got some gaming plans lined up, along with whatever other activities you might have planned.

Busy weeks tend to be fast weeks. This is a busy week, and therefore it is a fast week. I can’t believe it’s Wednesday already. Soon, it will once again be the weekend. Have you gotten your plans set? Mine are still a bit up in the air. The Hunter’s Guild releases didn’t come in like I was hoping they would. Perhaps this weekend (I need to ask Sketch about that). But before we get there, we should stock up on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Stars Reach space ship miniatures Up On Kickstarter, Oddzial Osmy’s 3mm April Releases Arrive at PicoArmor, Imbrian Arts Undead Resin Collection Up On Kickstarter, The Adventures of Little Knife and Kronan Miniatures Up on Kickstarter, New miniature set by Brother Vinni, Symbaroum Art book Now Available, Ruma: Dawn of Empire Coming to Kickstarter Next Month, and New Chaos Legionary Winged Jump Pack Available From Kromlech.

Hey kids. We have made it. It’s Friday at last. This certainly has been an eventful week. It’s also gone by quickly, at least for me. I hope everyone at Adepticon is having a good time. If you’re not there, I still hope you have a weekend of gaming planned. And if you’re going to be gaming all weekend, you should power up on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Thursday Terrain Corner

The week continues to just crawl on by. Man, I’ve not felt a week has taken this long for quite a while. I feel like I should be typing up the Friday Snippets instead of the Thursday Terrain Corner. But here we are. What do you suppose the chances are that the weekend will be like that? Where Saturday afternoon I’ll be going, “Geeze! Isn’t it supposed to be Monday by now!?” Probably very low. But, in the meantime, let’s make your gaming tables look as good as possible.

Today in the Terrain Corner we have: Battlefront Features Battlefield in a Box: Small Desert Houses, Robot City Obelisks Available From Frontline Gaming, Obelisk and Amphora sets Available From Tabletop-Art, Battlefront Features Battlefield in a Box: Desert Walls, Battlefield Game Mat Available From Pwork Wargame, New Arabian Terrain From Najewitz Modellbau, and New Exotic Locations Terrain From Sally 4th.

Is this week going by slowly for everyone else, too, or is it just me? I don’t know if it’s because I’m working from home as the new office continues to be set up, or if it’s just that this week is one that’s taking forever. Maybe it’s that I don’t currently have water in the apartment (the county is coming out today to figure out what’s up with that). Whatever it might be, if I’m going to make it through the rest of the week, I need to power up with some bite-size gaming stories.

Today we have: Mantic Games Announces The Walking Dead: All Out War Premium Collector’s Edition Diorama, Khurasan releases late 16th century landsknechts, Oddzial Osmy’s 3mm February Releases Arrive at PicoArmor, MegaMinis Running Robots Kickstarter, Journey To Ragnarok Coming To Kickstarter Soon, Final Day for Savage Worlds: Zombie Squad On Kickstarter, New Legionary Heavy Weapon Platform: Quad Heavy Thunder Gun Available From Kromlech, and Elder Dice Kickstarter Happening Now.
