We’re doing our best to fill up your day with gaming here on TGN. But I gotta sleep sometime. So where I leave off, gaming magazines pick up. In this case, it’s Figure Painter Magazine. Because you definitely don’t want to be taking painting advice from me! Instead, flip through the magazine and get tips and techniques from the best painters out there today. Issue 46 is now available for your reading pleasure.
We’re standing (well, I’m sitting) at the threshold to the weekend. With any luck, yours will be filled with all manner of gaming. I’ve yet to fully decide what I’ll be up to. But that’s sometimes half the fun. But whatever I end up doing, I should fuel up on bite-sized gaming stories. Good thing that’s what we’ve got here.
Today on the platter we have: SnapDice: Magnetic Dice Tray Up On Kickstarter, Chaos Books of Damnation Available From Kromlech, and Sally 4th Running Classic Movie Miniatures Kickstarter.
As we stand here, on Friday afternoon, on the precipice of the weekend, it seems appropriate to make a profound and meaningful statement about life, itself…
… … … Anyone got anything? … Anyone? … Ah well, instead how about we just munch on some bite-sized gaming stories? Sounds like a plan.
Today on the platter we have: Woodland 25mm und 40mm flat Bases Available From Tabletop-Art, Khurasan releases Vietnam War range, and 100 Oddities for a Treasure Hoard Available From Skirmisher Publishing.
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.
Today on the platter we have: RPG Player Kits Up On Kickstarter, Miniature Mentor Releases Basing Volume 5 with Fabrizio Russo, Oddzial Osmy’s 3mm August Releases Arrive at PicoArmor, New 28mm WW2 character models from Stoessi’s Heroes, New Legionary Maces Available from Kromlech, Really Useful Box Conversion Kits Available from Sally 4th, and New Female Genie Miniature Available From Brother Vinni.
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.
Today on the platter we have: Gaddis Gaming TableTopper 2.0 on Kickstarter, Precision Pivoting Arcs Up On Kickstarter, New Legionary Hunter Pattern Jump Packs From Kromlech, New Chaos Legionary Maces Available From Kromlech, and Menhir Games Previews Unnatural: Horror Creatures Kickstarter.
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.
Today we have: Scrap Steel Base Deals Available From Tabletop-Art, Rebel Minis Releases 28mm Minotaur Warlord, Fog Monster Mini Fog Machine Up On Kickstarter, Saint Brendan of Clonfert Mini Available From Brother Vinni, and Through Gamer Goggles Posts Gen Con 2017 Interviews.
As I’ve said numerous times over the past couple weeks, Gen Con is coming. Like… tomorrow. 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.
So, in all we have: 1-48TACTIC now has free add ons, Warzone Studio Releases Gigafactory Battle Mat, Brigade Models Releases 2mm Scale City Blocks, Crocodile Games Releases Remastered Abominable Snowbeast, Badlands: Fantasy Gaming Mat Available from Pwork Wargames, New Statuesque Female Heads on Sale for 10% off, Darkmook Paper Miniatures Releases Supernatural Western Town Terrain, A Dog’s Life Introduces Tillman the Skateboarding dog, The Army Painter Announces Runewars Paint Sets, and Arid Plain! Fantasy Gaming Mat Available from Pwork Wargames.
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. Though, many people know that basically the whole week is Gen Con, these days. So we should probably stock up on some bite-sized gaming stories to see us through.
Today we have: Riot Dice Up On Kickstarter, Warbands of the Cold North Dwarves Up On Kickstarter, New Releases Available From Dark Sword Miniatures, Lead Adventure Miniatures Running Bruegelburg – A Day at the Fair Kickstarter, New Glyphs Available From Kromlech, Metallic Legends: Collectible Fantasy Coins Up On Kickstarter, Super Chibi Round 3 Up On Kickstarter, New Basing Dials From Pyrkol, Brigade Models Releases New 15mm SF Vehicles, and Scotia Grendel Doing UK/European Production for Delvers Lost in the Dungeons of Doom III.
Friday is here! Gateway to the weekend that it is, I hope you’ve all got some sort of plans for gaming over the next couple days. I’m certainly hoping to get some dice-rolling on tomorrow (as well as possibly check out this new West African restaurant I found out about). But before we get to that, we should have an appetizer of bite-sized gaming stories.
On the platter today we have: New Kopta Kan Available From Kromlech, Khurasan releases more later 14th century sets, Surreal Dice Tower Up On Kickstarter, and New Chaos Legionary Banners From Kromlech.
We’re chugging along, everyone. Wednesday is upon us. The weekend is coming ever-closer.
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. But hey, busy means the time goes by quickly. But I’ll need to keep up my strength. For that, let’s nosh on some bite-sized gaming stories.
Today on the platter we have: Ratgard: LeaderRatss Battle Tank and Ratgard AFV Track Guard Now Available, New releases from Terrible Kids Stuff – August 2017, Star Sailors Set One: Magical Girls Available From Okumarts Games, Halfling Skeleton Armies Now on Kickstarter, Antenociti’s Workshop Running US-IMF : 28mm & 15mm Sci-fi Armour Kickstarter, U.S.O.R. Online RPG System Now Running, Frostgrave Warband Manager Online Tool Now Available, and iToysoldiers is now +1: Release 5.0 is live.
Well, it’s certainly been a busy week. But, that also means that things have gone by rather quickly. You know me, I’m always trying to get back to that weekend. But before I get there, I just got a decent-sized proofing project I need to work on. So I’d better make sure I have enough energy by downing some bite-sized gaming stories.
Today on the platter we have: Introducing The Cocked Roll D&D Web Series, New Imperial Palace Bases Available From Dark Art Miniatures, Ancient Dice Up On Kickstarter, and New Orcs Available From Kromlech.
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.
Today on the platter we have: New New Austro-Hungarian Aeronef Available From Brigade Models, New Bottles Available from Kromlech, and Cinematic Soundeffect- Music symphonic Compsitions for Tabletop and Boardgames.
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! Miniatures Elf Fantasy Football Teams Kickstarter, and Ratgard Previews Leader Ratss Battle Tank.
Having been home on Monday and Tuesday, it’s really throwing off what day of the week it is to me. Even though I’m sitting here in my Wednesday shirt, it doesn’t really feel like Wednesday. Typing up a Podcast Roundup this morning didn’t help, either. Maybe having a Snippets post now will help. I guess there’s one way to find out.
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.
We all love to fill our lives with all things gaming. If you’re a fan of the Frostgrave setting and wish there was more for it that you can interact with, your wish has been granted. Next week, the new Spellcaster: The Frostgrave Magazine will launch its inaugural issue.
It’s here, ladies and gentlemen. Friday. Gateway to the weekend. The work week is almost over and we just need to push through these last few hours and we’ll be free. Hopefully you’ve got some plans put together. Mine have solidified, with some chill card gaming tonight with a friend while we make sliders and eat gourmet popcorn (as you do). Then, tomorrow, it’s helping a friend move some stuff with gaming afterward (hopefully Guild Ball, but we’ll see). But if we’re going to make it there, we should fill up on some bite-sized gaming stories.
Today on the platter we have: Acheson releases 28mm Pewter Grizzly Bear, Brigade Models Releases New 6mm Humans and Aliens, and The Army Painter Updating and Rereleasing Battlefield Tufts Line.
Well, I don’t know about you, but my week’s already been pretty full of gaming stuff, mostly yesterday. I ended up having my order from Miniature Market come in (containing the Curse of the Statuettes adventure), and then Ray got back from Origins and I got some Muse on Minis tokens for Guild Ball as well as some expansions for Ascension. Now… just need to get to the weekend where I’ll be able to really take a look at all of it, and maybe manage to get them some use.
For that, I need to stock up on some bite-sized gaming stories.
Today on the platter we have: Advanced Deployment Anniversary Sale Happening Now, BattleScribe 2.01 Released, Sergei 76 Available soon From Klukva Miniatures, Eldertree Gaming Releases New Dice Towers, Commissar Elizabeth Raven Available From Brother Vinni, Stray Dog Minis now available from Miniature Building Authority, Imperial Books of Salvation Available From Kromlech, Dragons Conquer America Legacy Campaigns Coming to Kickstarter October 2017, and Final Days for Samhain Board Game On Kickstarter.
It’s that time again, everyone. Friday. The gateway to the weekend. I’m sure a lot of you are going to be heading out to the LGS to try the new edition of 40k. I’m hoping to just hang out with some friends and keep things chill. I saw some games of 8th Edition last week via a preview copy my LGS had. People were really excited about it. It’s looking like a good system. But if you’re going to be at the LGS all day, gaming it up, hardcore, you need to have plenty of energy. Best to fill up on some bite-sized gaming stories.
Today on the platter we have: Hawkmen Prepare for Kickstarter Launch, Kromlech Weekend Promo Sale, Sloppy Jalopy T62 Available Now From Sally 4th, Devil Forge Miniatures Release Odo Grumblebelly, and The Raider Vs the Unnameable In Alien Invasion Kickstarter.
The week continues on. We’ll eventually be getting back to the weekend. Just another couple days. In the meantime, we need to keep our energy up. To do that, we should nosh on some bite-sized gaming stories.
Today on the platter we have: Tikki Trolls Metal Minis Up On Kickstarter, June Releases Available From Terrible Kids Stuff, Acheson adds 28mm Pewter Hyenas, Bharata Playing Cards Up On Kickstarter, Multitude Game Set Coming to Kickstarter, York Gaming is launching a Kickstarter Campaign for 1492 – The Rite of Passage next Friday, Circle of Blood Teases Kickstarter Starter Box, New Legionary Heat-Ray From Kromlech, Tokens of Friendship Available For Tails of Equestria RPG, New Van Diemen’s World Devils Squads Now Available From Victoria Miniatures, New Bases and Accessories Sale From Micro Art Studio, GOT 28mm Kabardin APCs Available From Antenociti’s Workshop, Skyline Chess – New York City Edition Up On Kickstarter, and Khurasan releases Caveman headhunters and rhino riders.
The week continues along. It’s a shortened week for many of us, but it’s still a week. We’ll make it to next weekend, eventually, though. No worries. But if we want to get there, we should re-energize with some bite-size gaming stories.
Today we have: New Magic Tokens Available From Advanced Deployment, New Releases Available From Purgatory Miniatures, Khurasan releases 15mm Parthians, New Crystal Tech blank Bases Deals Available From Tabletop-Art, Surreal Dice Tower Coming To Kickstarter, Acheson Creations Releases Daedon Miniature, Final Days for Hedgerows and Heroes On Kickstarter, New Glyphs Available From Bits of War, and Flat Bases for War Contraptions Now Available From Tabletop-Art.
Hey everyone. As you read this, I’m having a blast here at the CMON Expo. I know I’m going to sound biased, but this really is one of my favorite shows of the year since it’s so calm, cool, and relaxed compared to something like Adepticon or Gen Con. You can just hang out and play games, literally with some of the games’ designers and artists, and just chill. And, being a polar bear, I’m all about chill. But, it’s still a show and that means work. So I need to keep my energy up. So I’d best take a midday break and nosh on some bite-sized gaming stories.
Today on the platter we have: Brigade Games Running Disposable Heroes WWII Minis Kickstarter, The Colorado Standard Poker & Tarot Deck Up On Kickstarter, Statuesque Heroic Scale Female Heads Narrow 2 and Bald Now Available, New Releases Available from RAFM, Nonstop70 Releases New Historical Paper Minis, New Zebras Available From Acheson Creations, and Rude Rats Fantasy Miniatures Up On Kickstarter.
It’s getting busy here in the office, what with the CMON Expo coming up this weekend. Lots of the usually out-of-office staff are coming in. I baked cookies for the occasion. But it’s not just cookies that will sustain us for the show. We’ll also need to fill up on some bite-sized gaming stories.
Today on the platter we have: Carthage Board Game Coming to Kickstarter, Rise of the Shadow Lords Miniatures Up On Kickstarter, Brigade Models Release Spanish Aeronef Fleet, Acheson Creations adds Chimps to Pewter Line, New releases from Terrible Kids Stuff – May 2017, Dragon Egg Inn Coming to Kickstarter, Final Days for Hannibal & Hamilcar on Kickstarter, Short Order Hero Coming To Kickstarter, New Orc Jet Fighter Pilot from Kromlech, Final Week For The Drowned Earth on Kickstarter, New Terminous Bases Available From Micro Art Studio, 12 Realms: Dungeonland Coming To Kickstarter, New Chaos Legionary Small Banners Available From Kromlech, and Final Week for Significant 7 Dwarves On Kickstarter.
*runs around with arms over my head*
Yeah, I’m excited for the weekend. Some of the toy soldiers I ordered a couple weeks ago finally came in at the LGS (yes, it’s Guild Ball stuff) and so I’m planning on being there bright and early at 10am when they open to get ’em. I hope you’ve got somewhat similar plans. But if we’re going to be at the gaming shop good and early, we need to munch on some bite-sized gaming stories.
Today on the platter we have: Cy-Co Western Cyberpunk Board Game Coming to Kickstarter, Bagthulhu Dice Bag Up On Kickstarter, New Releases Available From Hitech Miniatures, 40mm Imperial Palace bases Available From Dark Art Miniatures, Ogroid-fighter by Brother Vinni Now Available, RN Esutido’s Kickstarter Drahontyr the Mountain King unlocked, and Norsaga: Odds and Endings Coming To Kickstarter
The space-Egyptians are getting more love from Forge World. This time around, regular Tactical squads have an upgrade kit (or you can buy just a whole, full squad) and there’s some new Terminators available to order as well.
Well, we’re halfway there, everyone. Next weekend is as far ahead of us as the previous one is behind us. Just gotta power through another 2.5 days and we’ll be back at Saturday. Ah, glorious Saturday. But if we’re going to get there, we should recharge ourselves with some bite-sized gaming stories.
On the platter today we have: Scotia Grendel Posts New Releases, Now available: More round and oval Stonefloor Bases and Deals From Tabletop-Art, Tattoo Ink Card Deck Up On Indiegogo, Tiny Tin Troops Wargame Supplies & Services Launches New Website, XCase Clear Modular Miniatures Display and Transport On Kickstarter, RN Estudio Launches Mythexplorers Kickstarter, Native Renegades from Blind Beggar Miniatures now on Kickstarter, and Brigade Models Releases New 6mm and 15mm Yenpalo Aliens.
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.
Well, it’s Friday again. Woo!
I hope your week went by as quickly as mine did. Being busy after a long weekend will do that. And this weekend looks to be really busy as well. Lots of projects just showed up at the door that I will be dealing with on Sunday as well as into next week. Considering what I’m working on, that’s very much not a complaint. But if I’m going to be doing all of that, I need to be well-fed. So I’m gonna nosh on some bite-sized gaming stories, and you should, too.
Today on the platter we have: New Promo Releases From NonsenseMiniatures, Ouroboros Miniatures Fey Kickstarter is live, Archmage Origins Coming To Kickstarter, Greebo Games Limited Edition Easter Minis Up On Kickstarter, New Chickens and Rooster Set Available From Tabletop-Art, New Preview for Circle of Blood by Last Bullet Games, and New Release Available From Hitech Miniatures.
The week continues on. Most of my friends had a really busy weekend, so they’re having a bit of a time making it through the week. But it’s halfway over. The next weekend is making its way here as fast as the natural laws of time will allow. What might help is by filling up on some bite-sized gaming stories. Thankfully, that’s what we’ve got for you here.
Today on the platter we have: New Alchemist Tokens Available from Advanced Deployment, Light Hunters Coming To Kickstarter Soon, New Female Egyptian Models Available From Brother Vinni, and New Small Demonic Wings From Kromlech.
Friday is once again upon us. Gateway to the weekend. So many possibilities. I’m as busy as a one-armed paper hanger. Making all sorts of things in prep for tomorrow’s MST3K binge party. I hate to go to a gathering empty-handed, so I’m making brownies, cookies, and prepping stuff so I can make nachos and Swedish meatballs while there. Like I said, hate to be empty-handed. But while I’m making those bite-sized treats, let’s nosh on some bite-sized gaming stories.
Today on the platter we have: Two New Tank Turrets Available From Ramshackle Games, Tor Gaming Announces Their Affiliate Program, Circle of Blood from Last Bullet Games Coming To Kickstarter, Path of Light and Shadow Coming To Kickstarter, Final Days for Wreck Age Kickstarter, and Fluff Preview Posted For The Drowned Earth.
The week rolls along, just as the thunder outside rolls along.
I have to say, obviously I hope that everyone stays safe and there’s no property damage, but at the same time, the Midwesterner in me is going, “Squeee! Thunderstorms! Yay!”
I miss the storms that’d roll through Kansas and Missouri back when I lived there.
Anyway, as long as lightning doesn’t knock out the power or internet, let’s get you a platter full of bite-sized gaming stories.
Today we have: Final Hours for Frazetta Miniatures on Kickstarter, The Drowned Earth comes to Kickstarter April 16th, New Miniatures For Lance & Laser Available, New Sizes of Crystal Fields Bases Available From Tabletop-Art, EZPainter April Special Happening Now, Legends of the Colosseum 28mm Miniatures Up On Kickstarter, and New Legionary Heavy Heat-Ray From Kromlech.
And once more, we have made it to Saturday.
Isn’t that just grand? I certainly think it is. Hope you’ve got yourself some gaming lined up, because… I mean, that’s the way things should be, amirite?
Anyway, let’s get to those reviews I know you so desperately desire.
Today we have: Manaforge, Magmeda Monsters, Menu Masters, Coal Baron, Model Box – The Monthly Subscription Box for the Miniature Hobbyist, City of Kings, Saboteur, Morocco, They Who Were 8, and 7 Wonders: Duel Pantheon Expansion.
We’ve made it, everyone. It’s Friday (be sure to get your free item from Kroger). With any luck, your weekend will be filled with all things gaming. I’m… gonna take it a bit easy. It’s pollen season here in GA, and while I’m not particularly allergic to any of it, it’s like getting a face-full of dust or chalk. You cough, you sneeze, your eyes water just because of the amount of particulate in the air. So it’s best to just stay inside and fill up on bite-size gaming stories.
Today on the platter we have: Figure Storage Inserts for Vehicles Available From Sally 4th, Rise to Nobility launches on Kickstarter on April 5th, Go Fish Fitness Kickstarter – Final Week, Bits of War 3rd Anniversary Sale, Purgatory edges closer to completion with new arrivals of models, and April 1st Deals from Advanced Deployment.
On just about every Blood Bowl team, you’ll have “the big guy.” You know, that one player who literally towers above the rest, daring the opponent’s players to try and tackle them. For many, that “big guy” comes in the form of a Troll, and Games Workshop has started taking orders for a new one over on their website. They’ve also got a pack of Special Play cards, plus a bunch of hobby tools with which you can put your team together.
One expects to see tanks out on the battlefield when playing a game of 40k. There’s all manner of them around. And normally you might not expect to see one when playing Blood Bowl. Well, if you’re playing for or against a Dwarven team, that might not be the case. And this week, Forge World has tanks for both games available to order (ok, so the Deathroller isn’t really a tank, but it’s as close as you’re gonna get in Blood Bowl). There’s also a new Legio Custodes unit and upgrade kit.
