Friday Snippets

Fridaaaaaaaaay!
Wooooooo!
What a great day. It’s Weekend Eve, one of my favorite days of the week (as you all well know). I’ve got D&D tomorrow, and I’m more-than-ready to play (we’ll be streaming again, for anyone interested). But before we get there, we need to finish this day off. And to do that, we should snack on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Brigade Models – New Italians Released, New Heads Available From Puppets War, and Weekend Promo At Bits of War.

New Adeptus Mechanics Rules Posted

Game designers aren’t infallible. Sometimes, they come up with rules that don’t quite work out. They’re human. It happens to all of us. What’s best, though, is to learn from your mistakes and fix them. Well, the original Adeptus Mechanicus rules weren’t quite what people were looking for, so the Forge World team gave them an update. You can check them out now.

Steamforged Previews Veteran Chisel for Guild Ball

As the players in Guild Ball grow, they change (as we all do). Their careers go through different phases. That’s where the Veteran versions come in. The player has seen some stuff, and they’re now focused on new aspects of the play and themselves. In today’s preview, we get a look at Chisel. A bit of a wild-child, going out and just stabbing anyone she could, she’s mellowed over the years and is now more team-focused.

Mantic Posts Deadzone Outbreak Preview

Outbreak is the new campaign coming for Deadzone. However, it’s not just a new campaign that you can take part in anywhere you might be. It’s also a new major update and supplement for the Deadzone game. Mantic is basically calling it Deadzone 2.1. Included in the book, there are two new factions, the Nameless and the Mazon Labs (I might’ve preferred chocolate labs, but there we are, then). Take a look at these new factions in this preview.

Fantasy Flight Previews Lando’s Falcon For X-Wing

For many of you out there, I’m sure you’ve gone to see the new Solo movie (whether you saw it with other people or not). In it, we get a bunch of background on Star Wars‘ most famous smuggler, along with how he got the iconic ship, The Millennium Falcon. Well, back when Lando had it, it was much different looking. And that version will be making its way to X-Wing tabletops. We get a look at it in this preview (note: if you’ve not seen the movie and are one of those “OMG! If I know even more than just the title of the movie, the whole thing is ruined and my life is OVER!” types, I don’t know if there’s any spoilers about the film, but you’ve been possibly warned. Don’t come cryin’ to me).

So, we had the Exiles, the various Union members that left for other Guilds. The next set coming for Guild Ball is The Faithful.

We get a look at how he’s changing from his original incarnation in this preview.

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. Just go to their site, damnit).

Fantasy Flight Previews 1.4 FD Laser Cannon And E-Web Blaster For Star Wars: Legion

The Battle of Hoth scenes in Star Wars introduced a lot of new elements to the universe. In the opening salvos, we saw the Rebels defending their base using the 1.4 FD Laser Cannon (even as its shot did basically hit an AT-AT in the knee and seemingly do nothing at all). It then blows up. Then, a little later, when the Falcon is trying to take off, we see the Imperials setting up their E-Web blaster. Again, this gets blown away before it really has a chance to do anything. Well, hopefully their on-screen appearances are not indicative of what they’ll do on your Star Wars: Legion battlefields.

Fantasy Flight Previews Saw’s Renegades Expansion Pack For X-Wing

We all know that a new edition of X-Wing is coming (or, at least, I hope we all know it by now). Well, there’s still stuff coming before that official launch. But what if you want to pick it up? Will you immediately have to get 2nd edition stuff for it as well? Nope! Fantasy Flight is including it in the pack. And, in this preview, we get a look at what it’ll consist of.

Fantasy Flight Previews Squadron Building in X-Wing 2.0

With all the different ships, upgrades, weapons, skills, and other items in X-Wing, there’s seemingly infinite different ways to build your squadron of fighters.

Big models are my favorite type of models. And Kings of War is getting a quartet of new huge minis players can add to their forces. Mantic is taking orders for these figures.

Privateer Press Previews New Warmachine/Hordes Releases

As the temperature continues to rise here in Atlanta, I know I wish it was actually getting closer to winter. Granted, I’m not sure I want a winter like a Khador winter (because Khador winter don’t stop), but they also have giant Man-o-War suits to keep them warm. Also used to those Khador winters is the Legion of Everblight, since they hail from the same region of Immoren. Privateer has posted up previews of a bunch of new Men-o-War units, as well as one more Legion preview for you.

Fantasy Flight Previews Baron Zachareth For Runewars

The kingdoms of man are fighting against elves, undead, and demon-creatures from the wastes. In these times, some morals are lost, or at least, past deeds are glossed over. Such is the case of Baron Zachareth. To some, a saint. To others, a demon (though different from the demon-creatures). Either way, he’s coming to the tabletop for Runewars.

New Bolt Action Kits and Bundles From Warlord Games

Bolt Action has been Warlord Games’ flagship game for quite some time now. And a mainstay of the game is the average, American G.I. Well, as often happens, the kit, while good when it came out, has gotten a bit old and stale. And that’s why we’re getting a new US G.I. Troopers set. Along with that, there’s all sorts of bundles and sets to get you and your buddies playing right away.

Games Workshop Taking Pre-Orders For Imperial Knights Codex

If you know me, you know I love giant robots. So, while I’ve not played 40k in quite a long time, the addition of even more giant robots to the game certainly has me stopping and going, “hmm…” and then going to check my bank account. Games Workshop has started taking pre-orders for their Imperial Knights codex, as well as new kits, widgets, dice, and more.

Onna-bugeisha of Asakura Available to Pre-Order For Test of Honour

In Japan, it wasn’t just the men who could train in martial arts and learn the Samurai ways. Women were able to do that as well, and many noblewomen did just that.
