Midweek Snippets

It’s a cold and snowy day here over in Atlanta. A thin layer of ice is concealed under a small blanket of snow. As such, it’s “work from home” day for the bear. Atlantans tend to have rather dubious driving skills in ideal conditions. Throw in some ice and snow and it’s not so much a matter of being worried about your own car, it’s everyone else flying in every direction you’ve gotta worry about. So I’ll just sit here and snack on some bite-sized gaming stories from the comfort of my den.

On the platter today we have: Reptilian Overlords Releases Enemy Trooper Heads, Dark Art Studios January Sale Happening Now, Daughters of the Orphanage Coming From Raging Heroes, HeresyLab Bringing New Sci-Fi Minis to Kickstarter Soon, and Brigade Models Releases New 15mm Hammer’s Slammers Vehicles.

The weekend is almost upon us! I’m already getting my gaming on today. I’ll be playing some of the Munchkin CCG, as well as perhaps some of the Fallout board game. That’s before I go over to a friend’s place tomorrow to deliver some late Christmas presents (ok, really late)… they’re games. So hopefully we’ll play them some. But if I’m going to be doing all this gaming, I should be well-fed. Good thing I’ve got some gaming stories to nosh on. Including cotton candy dice. Yes, I ordered these dice this morning. #NoSuchThingAsTooManyDice

Today on the platter we have: Cotton Candy Dice Available From Kraken Dice, Goblin Factory Releases New Goblins, and Magnetic Days – 25% DISCOUNT On Magnetic Gear At Tabletop-Art.

Figure Painter Magazine Issue 47 Now Available

A couple weeks ago, I went through my (rather neglected) paint collection, resuscitating those that I could, and tossing out those that were dried solid. I have been meaning to start painting again. Just need to find time to do it. I know my skills will be rusty, but maybe by reading through Figure Painter Magazine Issue 47, I can get a jump-start back to making my models presentable. You can get your copy as well, as it’s available now.

Well, the blustery weather from yesterday is gone. Now it’s just cold. Hopefully the storm didn’t hit you all too bad. I’ve got various friends up north that are dealing with the aftermath, but it’s all not too terribly bad stuff. Though I doubt many are going to be heading to the LGS. Well, they can still stay in and game. And while gaming, they can snack on these bite-sized gaming stories.

Gee. Halfway through the week already? It’s just flying on by. But such is the case, apparently. Man, maybe the whole year will go by this quick.

Hey everyone! We’ve made it to another Friday! Hopefully your week is going well. As we get nearer to the end of the year, mine’s getting busier and busier. Articles, proofing projects, just all sorts of things to work on. It’s going to be a busy holiday. But it’s alright.
Anyway, let’s get to today’s tasty, bite-sized gaming stories.

Yes, it’s lightly snowing here in Atlanta.

A cold wind is blowing here in Atlanta. Yes, I know many of you are much colder than we are here, but it was also almost 70F out yesterday. Today it’ll be closer to 45F. Definitely glad that, earlier this week, I got out my extra blankets that were buried in my closet. So those’ll be nice. What’ll also be nice is snacking on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Red Scorpion Kits Available to Order From Forge World

Well, the Scorpions are red (and I don’t mean to say that the classic metal band is communist), so that’s kinda Christmas-y. Anyway, even if it doesn’t really tie in with the holiday season (not like every story this month needs to), if you’re looking for Red Scorpions items for your 40k armies, now’s the time to head over to Forge World, as they’ve got some new characters, a new dreadnaught, and some item kits to help you build the army you want.

I don’t know about you, but I’ve still got tons of leftovers from Thanksgiving. That was by design, mind you, and the original intent behind Thanksgiving 2: Thank Harder that I had last Friday. And no, I’m not getting tired of turkey and all the trimmings. However, it wouldn’t hurt to nibble on something different for a moment. That’s why we’ve got a whole bunch of bite-sized gaming stories for you to snack on.

Fridaaaaaaaaay! And a Friday off, to boot! Yes, I know, I’m technically off of work but I’m still typing up posts. That’s because I love you all thaaaaat much! Who do I also love? Our Veterans. The reason we have today off is because it’s Veteran’s Day here in the States. My dad’s a veteran, as are many of my friends, and I thank them for their service. So, before I log off and spend a day just chilling, let’s nom on a quick bite-sized gaming story.

Here we are, once more at the threshold to the weekend. I know I’m ready for it. It’s been a busy week with a lot of work going on here at the office. I could use a day of just hanging out and playing with my toy soldiers with some good friends. At least, that’s the plan for tomorrow. In the meantime, it’s time to fill up on some bite-sized gaming stories.

We’re halfway there, everyone. The work-week is half-done and it’s getting ever-closer to the weekend. Of course, I’m excited for that. I’m hoping to get in some gaming up at the LGS.

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!

And here we are again. Friday: threshold to the weekend. I’m sure many of you are gearing up for a weekend of gaming, possibly starting as early as when you get off of work.

Fridaaaaaaay! Wooo!
Friday of a 3-day weekend! WOOOOOOO!!!
I’ve already been seeing quite a lot of pictures from downtown as many of my friends make their way to Dragon*Con. But that’s far from the only convention going on this weekend. It seems like there’s like 4-5 of them going on. So, if you want to get your gaming on, you can certainly find a place to do it. Mine will likely be at my place or a friend’s house (no, I don’t want to fight the traffic downtown, thakyouverymuch). But whatever you do, you should stock up on some bite-sized gaming stories.

It’s already Wednesday. Is the week going by quickly for everyone else, too? It feels like it is for me, anyway. But being busy will do that, I suppose. If I’m going to keep up this pace, I should stock up on some bite-sized gaming stories.

There’s going to be, oh, about a bajillion things going on, so it’s best to stock up on some bite-sized gaming stories. Plus, since we didn’t get it on Monday (and there’s a chance I might not be able to get to it tomorrow), let’s go ahead and get some Terrain Corner pieces in here, too.

Fridays are generally pretty cool. But this is the last Friday before Gen Con. As I’ve been talking with a few people today, when they say, “are you ready for Gen Con?” my answer is, “you’re never 100% ready for Gen Con. You’re just ‘as ready as you are when Gen Con runs into you’.” I don’t know about you, but I’ve gotta do a ton of stuff in the next couple days before I leave next week. It’s going to be a busy weekend. And that means I should fill up on some bite-sized gaming stories so I can keep my energy up.

Today we have: New Dvergr Commando Medic Available From Kromlech, Save the Day: Local Heroes Paper Minis Now Available, and HDF Base Weekend Special From Kromlech.

By this time next week, multitudes of gamers will be converging on Indianapolis, ready for the start of Gen Con the next day. Yeah, we’re a week and a day away from the start of the show.

Has the week gone by quickly for everyone else? It’s been a fast start for me. And with several new proofing projects in the pipe, I’m certainly going to be busy the rest of the week.

And here we are once more. It’s Friday. And I’m having a conversation with a friend in Wales about chip butty, because that’s how life works sometimes. It’s really got me wanting some poutine, actually. … or just anything, I’m starving. Well, before I head out of here to get some lunch, I should snack on some bite-sized gaming stories. Otherwise, I’ll spend like $100 buying everything on the menu.

This week feels like it’s going by quickly. I was waking up this morning and went, “whoah… it’s already Wednesday.” Seems those podcasts are helping. Either that, or it’s because I’m pretty busy over here. Lots going on behind the scenes. My screen’s pretty full of stuff, to be honest. And if I’m going to get through all of it, I should power up on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: LARC 32mm Resin VTOL up on Kickstarter, Matilda Tanks Available to Pre-Order From Victoria Miniatures, New Legionary Banners Available from Kromlech, Final Days For Impact!

Today on the platter we have: New Farm Animals Available From Warlord Games, More fantasy football head sets Available From Tabletop-Art, Retro Power Armor Mini Available From Brother Vinni, Skirmisher Publishing Releases 100 Oddities for an Enchanted Forest, and New Hobby Black Chains Available From Kromlech.
