Today’s a day to celebrate. Why? It’s my 5th anniversary with TGN. Yes, on this day, 5 years ago, I made my first post on the site. It was the new plastic Warp Wolf kit that Privateer Press was coming out with. Oh how gaming has changed since then. I remember having a conversation, a couple months into my tenure, with Ross “The Legend” Thompson (my boss at the time) about, “These Kickstarter-things.”
So, to celebrate, let’s have a bunch of bite-sized gaming stories.
What? We do that every Wednesday? Well, fine, be that way.
Today we have: Dice Coins 2 Up On Kickstarter, I Will Never Grow Up becomes exclusive distributor of Field Marshal Games products, Ramshackle Games Posts Stretch Goal Goblin For Jet Bike Kickstarter, New Discworld Death Bust -15% discount, Factions Fantasy Playing Cards Coming To Kickstarter in January, New Releases Available From Scotia Grendel, Casual Game Revolution Posts 2017 Tabletop Gaming Conventions Map, Mage Company To Launch Sleeves and Gaming Accessories Kickstarter, Kill the Unicorns Coming to Kickstarter in June, New Morbid Legionary Torsos From Kromlech, Temple of Isis Round Lip Bases Now Available From Tabletop-Art, New Releases And Final Christmas Sale From Advanced Deployment, Flatminis 2D preprinted miniatures are now available as PDF download, Two new Characters bring gold to Talisman: Digital Edition, and Khurasan releases 15mm Hezbollah and Syrian Government Forces.
The first set of Dice Coins was successfully funded on kickstarter and it was delivered early (yes early). Based upon the great reviews, we are back with more dice, more art, and custom ordering options.
Backers have a choice of 21 different characters who they can match to whatever dice they want. In addition, they have three metal plating options: antique gold, antique silver, and antique copper. All standard dice types are available.
Dice Coins are made of solid brass and are in the shape of a 2 inch coin. They have numbers on the outer perimeter. Players spin them like a top, use their finger to stop the coin, and use the result to the left of their finger.
The design allows artwork to be displayed on the coin. Dice Coins are accurate and easy to use. They look fantastic and a great addition to a gamer’s collection.
I Will Never Grow Up Games has been named the worldwide exclusive distributer of Field Marshal Games line of luxury, replacement, strategy board game components.
After extensive talks between I Will Never Grow Up Games and Field Marshal Games, Field Marshal Games has made the difficult but necessary decision to close up their end user sales division and focus entirely on design and development of products in the luxury board gaming replacement parts field.
Over the course of the next few weeks I will be posting up images of the new parts I have made. This week is the goblin rider. This can be chosen as part of any of the Pick and Mix sets.
Towards the end of the campaign I will make an info-graphic showing clearly all the options for the kits.
The orc rider is nearly finished. The space night is just legs at the moment! I’m also working on some seats with no rider.
Micro Art Studio Discworld Busts are now 15% off, with the new Death Bust amongst them! Every bust is packed in a nice and safe cardboard package.
The promo lasts until 24th of December and is valid both for metalized and unpainted busts.
Factions Games has been working on a custom playing card deck for about two years. Everything is pretty much done and a Kickstarter will launch on January 10, 2017.
FACTIONS is a beautifully illustrated and designed deck of 56 playing cards, featuring iconic images of characters and suits themed to a world of fantasy. While FACTIONS contains all the cards in a traditional playing card deck, we’ve also included two additional Jokers so that each suit in FACTIONS has a unique take on this castaway card–an elite warrior from each Faction riding into battle on its mount.
A new month appears, so its time to announce who is the lucky winner of our lottery… and, of course, show of new releases.
Let’s move on.
And the winner is….
Jonathan, congratulations! Jonathan will receive a FREE Converted Land Pilot model (Work by Elton Waters). We will contact with you by email. For those who did not win this time we have good news – there will be another lottery, so stay tuned.
Gaming conventions are a great way to find awesome new games, connect with other gamers, and even get feedback on your own designs. Good things happen when gamers gather together!
Fortunately, hundreds of game cons large and small are happening all over the world in 2017. This year, we have put together this map to allow you to easily find gaming conventions near you.
