    Wrummy 3-4-5 is a new spin on a classic card game. Instead of getting sets via like-kind or runs, you get sets by making words. So it’s a bit of a mix between classic Rummy and Scrabble.
    They’re up on Kickstarter now and looking for some funding love.

    Warlord Games adds to their Bolt Action line with the release of their new Waffen-SS Cavalry set. Yes kids, men on horseback were used during WWII and still used even later. While it seems rather backward, these units could still be very effective, going over terrain and into places at a speed that other modes of transportation simply couldn’t compare to.

    Late Knight Games is running a Kickstarter campaign for MajiMonsters, their monster-catching RPG. Sort of a more grown-up Pokemon sort of thing, players look to catch MajiMonsters, which were created by ancient wizards for hidden purposes. They’re around 1/3 funded, but with still 28 days left to go, there’s a good chance they’ll make it.

There is no luck element in the game (no dice or card flips), just strategy.

    Forge World has started taking orders for their new Deredeo Pattern Dreadnaught and the first couple weapon systems for it.
    I know I’ve lamented the look of some of Forge World’s dreadnaughts before, but this one I like. Granted, I think it’s because it reminds me of Mechwarrior (kinda looking like the Warhammer, actually… Not exactly like it, but it’s what I thought of), but still.
    Anyway, you can order these now and they’ll be sent out on the 30th.
