Friday Snippets

Aug 12th, 2016

Well, it’s been a bit of a short week here in the office, having only come in Wed-Fri. Though, with having just a little time off from Gen Con, it felt much longer. I’m looking forward to a weekend of doing probably not all that much at all. Just some time to decompress a bit. Should be nice. Lets me put together some of the figures I got at the show. To do that, I’ll need energy. Energy in the form of bite-sized gaming stories.

On today’s platter we have: Forest Goblins multi-part plastics is Shieldwolf Miniatures Coming To Kickstarter, Xtraidos Crowdfunding Campaign Launched, TinMan’s 35% Off Back In Business Sale Ends Soon, Oddzial Osmy’s 3mm August Releases Arrive at PicoArmor, Victoria Miniatures Female Greatcoat Legs and BFG Ammo Crates Now Available, and New Undead Orcs From Scotia Grendel.

Xtraidos Crowdfunding Campaign Launched


A crowdfunding campaign has been launched to supportcasting in metal miniatures for Xtraidos.

Xtraidos is a superheroic skirmish game based on the background of the related Sentinel Studios’ and Ayatolah Games’ RPG ,and the rules of the skirmish game 1650, A Capa & Espada, from Tercio Creativo.

TinMan’s 35% Off Back In Business Sale Ends Soon


Sunday, August 14th will be the last day that TinMan will be having their 35% Off Back In Business Sale.
Not only that, but some figures, not all, just a select few, will have their regular prices increased once the sale ends.
So, this is your last opportunity to not only purchase the minis you want at drastically reduced prices, but this is the lowest the prices will be once the sale ends.

    I’m surprised to see ‘Xtraidos Crowdfunding Campaign Launched’. It’s made by one of the owners of Tercio Creativo. Back in November 2013, they finished an indiegogo funding campaing for an expansion to 1650. 5 months ago, they updated us that all the minis were ready to ship. I even added miniatures to my order. But for 3 months now, their has been no communication with the backers at all; no update, no comments in indiegogo and no email responds.

    • Sergio Alonso León

      Hello, Tchuck, I’m Sergio (the sculptor of Xtraidos and half of Tercio Creativo staff),

      I understand you, but there’s a difference between me being part of Tercio Creativo and Xtraidos being part of Tercio Creativo. I mean: I have sculpted, written and paid art and paintings using my free time and savings. “Tercio Creativo” is there only for selling the figures “properly” (for taxes and all those things). It’s the same with BI-XO Wars. I did all by myself and last packages will be sent at the beginning of the next week.

      Apart of that, you totally right Dies Irae is having a TERRIBLE delay, but 99% of the Spanish packages have been sent and foreign ones are being sent, so be patient, everybody will get their stuff. And I hope it is before summer has ended.

    In Xtraidos defense, the trouble was entirely due to a caster who’d abandoned the project. They probably did take too long to find a replacement, but once they had a replacement caster the project was fine and the packages were mailed out as promised (I was a foreign participant and I did receive mine).

      You are one of the lucky ones, a lot of us never got our miniatures. After adding minis to my order and paying them more, I never got any new or package from them, that after they said everything was ready to ship, its been 4 months.
