Those lazy, hazy, crazy Sundays of summer. We don’t have many of them left. It’s already noticeably cooler here in Atlanta. You don’t go outside and instantly curse. Anyway, we’ve got a selection of bite-sized stories for you. In this batch of Snippets we have: Purgatory Minia...

We continue on with the post-Gen Con week’s work. Though I was able to keep up with a lot of things, obviously, things are going to fall behind in some areas. I’m almost out of the mountain of e-mails I’d gotten over the weekend. If I’ve not replied to you yet, don’t wor...

June 1967 was a good month for Israel’s military. In the course of just six days, they defeated their enemies. A major battle during the conflict was fought at the old Turkish fort of An-Nakhl. Battlefront has a new Desert Fort kit coming out and figured people might want to recreate the battle...

There’s a somewhat controversial statement that as much history happened in the 20th century as had happened in all the previous years leading up to it. With WWI, WWII, Vietnam, and the Cold War all happening during those 100 years, it’s not hard to see why someone might think that way. T...

Wednesday is once again upon us, dear TGN readers. We’ve been having a busy week at the office. I’m working on a few review articles that’re coming up, and yesterday we shot a new unboxing video. But that’s as may-be. We’ve also collected various bite-sized stories and p...

My fellow TGN readers, welcome to another Sunday Edition. I hope your Saturday was good and your Sunday is being productive. My D&D group from yesterday came close to TPK at least twice. But that’s what happens when you charge up to 4 Dire Bears and basically give them a turn to munch on y...

Wednesday. The previous weekend is two days behind us. The next weekend is two days ahead of us. We are perched atop a precipice. Which isn’t to say “it’s all downhill from here,” but I guess you could consider it as such. At the very least, I hope the first half of the week w...

Here we are again. Half-through with the week. With any luck, you’ve had some gaming opportunities. Or at the very least, have some coming up. Looks like I’ve got D&D again this weekend. Should be a good time, though we’ve got a player moving to Ohio soon. So we’re gettin...

I hope everyone had a great International TableTop Day yesterday. Though, of course, the spirit of International TableTop Day is with us always, and we should celebrate as often and with as many people as we possibly can. As for us here at TGN, it’s another Sunday. So as my arm heals from getti...

Sunday, rainy Sunday. At least, here in Atlanta it’s raining. Due to gaming much of the day yesterday (rpg variety for me, though electronic in nature. Hey! I’m allowed!), it’s “do all the chores!!” day here. Most important is the giant stewpot of red beans simmering on ...

Battlefront continues their “all artillery, all the time” previews for Fate of a Nation with a look at the M50 155mm gun. It certainly can’t be said that you don’t have options in your methods of bombardment in that game. I’ve got basically no knowledge of the conflict t...

Battlefront continues the focus on Fate of a Nation with their M3 90mm DEFA halftrack. They also continue their anti-tank theme. This vehicle, though, seems perfectly suited to not flipping over backwards whenever it is fired. *wink* The use of these anti-tank vehicles (that weren’t tanks thems...
