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.

Brigade Games Running Disposable Heroes WWII Minis Kickstarter

We created these 28mm metal cast miniatures for wargamers. These miniatures represent United States (M41 uniform) Army Infantry and late war German Infantry. Our goal is to get these into production and this would allow gamers to create full platoons (infantry command and squads) for each army. We have added stretch goals for the various support troops needed for both armies.

This is a 21 day campaign

We have added stretch goals covering support weapons such as HMGs, Mortars, Snipers, Engineers, Flamethrowers, Artillery Observers, Artillery.

The Colorado Standard Poker & Tarot Deck Up On Kickstarter

The Colorado Standard Playing Card Company of Boulder, Colorado officially launched this month and is running a Kickstarter campaign for their unique take on playing cards. The Colorado Standard Poker Deck is a new gaming platform based on the steampunk novel Havoc’s Children. The deck has an embedded fifth suit and three suited jokers which differentiates it from French Standard cards, but allows gamers to enjoy the games they grew up with.

Statuesque Heroic Scale Female Heads Narrow 2 and Bald Now Available

Statuesque Miniatures is pleased to announce the release of two new sets of Statuesque female heads.

Igor VOROBEV’s hobby is drawing paper soldiers of different times and countries. Soldiers of Napoleon and Alexander I, Mongols, WW2 Wehrmacht Infantry, Medieval knights in tournament …

Armies and historical periods drawn in his tables are very different. And he tries to get the soldiers’ uniforms drawn by him 100% historically correct.

As soon as possible other sheets will be available ( Napoleonic Period Russian Infantry, WW2 Russian Infantry … ) . So that these figures are also useful for skirmish and tactical wargames as well as for enthusiastic collectors.
