I don't trust the ocean. You'll never see me on a beach, about to go diving in. I mean, sure there's all the terrible polution that's pretty bad. But there's also all those monstrous sea creatures out there. I'm with Billy Connally, we don't belong in there. Sure, these are only miniatures from AntiMatter Games, but how can we know that they don't actually live out there and are just waiting for me to dip my toe in? Eh?
We may be 2/3 of the way through summer (up here in the Northern Hemisphere, that is), but that doesn't mean there isn't time for a Summer Sale. And that's just what AntiMatter Games is having now over in their webshop. Want to pick up some DeepWars and ShadowSea figures for cheaper than usual? Now's your chance.
I never want to go out into the ocean. We have no idea what really is living out there, and it'd be just my luck that I take one step into the waves and something like this Elder Sea Dragon attacks. So, I'll just live vicariously through games like DeepWars. And speaking of those two, AntiMatter Games has started taking down names of those who would like a new Elder Sea Dragon mini when it's released next month.
Deep below our feet, a whole other land thrives. Nestled in the dark places of the Earth, a separate ocean, entirely cut off from the outside world, is teeming with life. AntiMatter Games will bid you to explore these waters in ShadowSea and DeepWars, their two miniatures games. In July (get me a jury and show me how to say In July...), each game will be getting a new starter set.
AntiMatter Games is making sure that you're ready for Black Friday next week. They've posted up the details for their sale, which is pretty simple. Use the coupon code and get 30% off your order. It's nice when they're easy like that.
The folks over at AntiMatter Games are running a Kickstarter campaign for The Stygian Depths - Lost Temple of Xibalba. It's a new group adventure for ShadowSea. Playable both solo and with friends, the set takes you to new depths below the Earth and below the waves.
AntiMatter Games has updated their downloads section of their website with new DeepWars cards. If you've been waiting for these new stats, your wait is now over. These new cards include submersibles, but every force has been updated in some way, shape, or form.
AntiMatter Games is looking to bring the Order of Yosoth a new starter set. And with the new starter will come new minis. In this preview, they are showing off greens of two figures: the Priest of Yosoth and the Corrupted Researcher. Sure, reading might be good for your health most of the time, but when it causes you to start growing deformed limbs? Maybe not so much...
Down under the surface world we know is another layer. Here, a deep, dark, underground ocean has its own inhabitants... but also its own riches. It's into this subterranean, submarine world that you find yourself in Shadowsea. AntiMatter Games is showing off some new releases they'll be coming out with for the game in the next couple months, including a huge kraken.
The ocean is full of wonders... and horrors. And, I mean, I can't say for certain that there aren't swarms of mechanized piranha fish, ready to rip the flesh from your bones in seconds, I can't rule it out, either. So, if you ask me, I'll keep my deep-sea diving to the tabletop with DeepWars, because there, at least I know I can take on the models of mechanized piranha fish, which is what we get a preview of here from Antimatter Games.
There's all sorts of crazy things beneath the waves. The ocean depths hold monsters we're barely able to even imagine. In DeepWars, those creatures are under your command in their conflicts with one-another. One of these strange creatures is the Sea Hang. AntiMatter Games is showing her off. You can pick up yours next year.
Mmm, Saturday. Drink it in! ... *sip* ... tastes like Sobe Citrus Energy... Oh, hey, look! An open Sobe Citrus Energy! Ain't that a kick in the head? *sip* But my drinking habits aside, I know you're here for your weekly dose of reviews. So let's get to it.
Today we have: Exit the Game, Ascended Kings, Stroop, Component Collector & Dice Tray, DeepWars, Beasts of Balance, Jaipur iOS, Clank! Sunken Treasures Expansion, Isle of Monsters, Qwinto, Downforce, Century: Spice Road, Fistful of Lead - Reloaded, Watson & Holmes, and Zooloretto.
It feels like a short week, but it's certainly been a busy week. Yesterday, got pulled aside for a vital project before the A Song of Ice and Fire Miniatures Game Kickstarter launches later this month. That was a cool couple of hours. But yeah, just been busy all-around. Ready for that weekend! Gonna be making some dark-chocolate-orange confections (cookies, candy sticks, and candied orange peel) over the weekend. ... Might make some gumbo, too. Haven't gotten that far ahead. But when making that stuff, I should fill up on some bite-size gaming stories, so I don't eat all the cookie dough or something.
Today on the platter we have: Red Republic Games Previews Special Arena Rex Dice, Everlasting Wet Palette Coming To Kickstarter, The Board Game Table Mat by Tabletop Companion Now Available, Final Day for DeepWars Kickstarter Campaign, dice.run Dice Rolling Tool Up Online, and Brigade Models release 6mm Combat Cars.
Under the sea... Well, now that I've got that song stuck in your head, let's take a look at DeepWars. AntiMatter Games is running a Kickstarter to expand their DeepWars line, including a new submarine as well as various other sea creatures and characters.
Spring has sprung. The temperatures are rising. The pollen is wafting through the air. People are headed outside once more... and they're realizing that all that pollen and the hot temperatures are sending them right back inside again. Well, if you're gonna be inside, why not do some gaming? And if you're going to be gaming, why not get some new figures at a cheaper price than usual? AntiMatter Games is having their Spring Sale now.
Well, we're making our way through the week. Two and a half days down. Two and a half days to go. Then we get to the glorious, glorious weekend. Do you have things planned coming up? I've got a bunch of things from Adepticon that got sorted through last weekend. This weekend it's time to get things started on writing articles for them. So expect those in the next couple weeks.
To help keep our strength, let's fill up on some bite-sized gaming stories.
Today we have: Into the Black: A Game of Space Piracy casts off on Kickstarter May 3rd, GCT Studios' Pioneers Program Needs You, Lost Cat Games Launches Open Beta For Straight To VHS, 2184 Generation war Trailer Video Posted, Minion Miniatures - Monsters of Underdeep 2 Kickstarter Funded, New Website for MAGE Company, Aether Captains returns on Kickstarter April 18th, Cavern Tavern launches on Kickstarter on April 20th, Final Day For Blood Reef on Kickstarter, and Mackinley from Klukva Miniatures is on sale.
I'm back in the office today (worked from home yesterday). Doing my best to get back into the swing of things after being in Chicago last week. At least it's a short week (seeing as it's already Wednesday) before I get back to another weekend.
But seeing as it's Wednesday, and we didn't have one on Sunday, it's time to chow down on some bite-sized stories in our mid-week Snippets feature.
Today we have: Great Scott! - The Game of Mad Invention Coming To Kickstarter April 13th, Colayth Guard Combat Force Set Now Available, Astagar 15mm Sci-fi Snakemen Kickstarter now live, Gaspez-Arts miniatures: sexy pin-ups Indiegogo Campaign Happening Now, Aether Captains returns on Kickstarter April 18th, Tanto Cuore International coming to Kickstarter in May 2016, Arcanik: New RPG system in development, New Release! Zg'orzel, The Morbid Herald, and DeepWars - Blood Reef - EU friendly.
Well, the office is a little quieter today as some of the people head out to California for WonderCon this weekend. And this time next week I'm sure I'll be somewhere in Kentucky or maybe Indiana on my way to Adepticon. It's been a couple years since I've been to that show. Should be interesting.
But that's as may be. At the moment, it's time to nosh on some bite-sized stories.
Today we have: S.T.A.R. Trooper Miniatures Launched, True Messiah Teaser Video Posted, Jobstacles Funds With 2 Weeks Left On Kickstarter, DeepWars - Blood Reef Reaches Funding Goal, Final Sculpt for Shattered Earth's Aurora Unveiled, and Blitzkrieg 222 Assault Vehicle Now Available From Kromlech.
Under da sea... *ducks from all the things just thrown at me for getting that song stuck in people's heads* Though this coral reef for DeepWars from AntiMatter Games is a bit more deadly and a lot less cheery than the one in The Little Mermaid. Though there certainly are mermaids in this new Blood Reef expansion set. They're called the Nereids. I don't think they really sing all that much.
The work week marches on (as Glenn Miller - American Patrol plays on Pandora). We're halfway there, beautiful watchers. We've made it to Wednesday. Let's keep on keepin' on and make our way to the rest of the week. However, a quick bite would be good. Oh, look, some bite-sized gaming stories for you. How convenient.
Today's installment of Snippets we have: Brigade Models Release New 6mm Armoured Infantry, Cannon Fodder WW2 Stickers Now Available, New ATER miniatures are here, New Weapons and Accessories Available from Victoria Miniatures, DeepWars - Blood Reef Kickstarter coming soon, and New Bases Available From Tabletop-Art.
Well, as Lynyrd Skynyrd said, Tuesday's gone. That, of course, means we've moved on to Wednesday. Woo! We're halfway through the week! Always a good feeling that. The weekend is getting closer every minute. Before we get there, though, we need to serve up some bite-sized stories we've come across in the past couple days.
This time around we have: New releases from Scotia Grendel, New Targeting System From Puppets War, AntiMatter Games Previews The Beast of Blood Reef, Polyversal After Action Report from Williamsburg Muster, Guadalcanal Battle Set Released by Topside Minis, New Sturmgewehr soldiers from Iron Cross Miniatures, New Trays and Bags Available From Battle Foam, and New Tanks and Turrets From LaserCutCard.
We're working ourselves down the hill of the week and starting to gain speed. Thursday's here and that means it's time to try and get your tables looking as good as they possibly can.
In today's Terrain Corner we have: New Scenic Terrain Pieces From Antimatter Games, New Iron Fence From Puppets War, Free Harn Map Available, and Manorhouse Workshop Forgotten Halls : first glance behind the scenes.
With it getting colder outside, you'd think that cold-blooded animals would be slowing down. Well, that's not the case for the Draconid Legion for ShadowSea over at AntiMatter Games. Things are, in fact, heating up with the new holiday sale that they have going on now. Plus, there's new pre-order opportunities for you.
Gen Con is gone and done for the year. It's certainly a lot of work, but it's also a lot of fun. It will be missed, but it will be back again before we know it. AntiMatter Games was at the show, showing of DeepWars and ShadowSea. They've got a special deal going on over in their webshop as a bit of a Gen Con wrap-up. They've also got a bit they're showing off from the upcoming DeepWars video game.
AntiMatter Games has added some new minis to their webshop for ShadowSea. These are some of the Draconid minis they had made from their Kickstarter campaign a while back. Now, if you missed out, you can get yourself some of the figs. And hey, they're having a sale, too. They've extended their spring sale to the end of May. So just use code "AMG" at checkout and get 20% off your order.
