TGN Sunday Snippets

Well… Saturday’s over. At least for me, that means changing the “carefree, do-what-you-want” attitude is replaced by a “determined, get things done around the house” one. Laundry, dishes, vacuuming, and, of course, bringing you some bite-sized stories for you to munch on.

In today’s grouping we have: Plain Bases Now Available From Anvil Industry, Heart of Crown Coming to Kickstarter January 26th, Siren Miniatures Previews Maestro, The Wargaming Company Announces New 1812 Napoleonic Campaign Guide, and Toad King Castings website launched.

Anvil Inudstry holds “Rename the Steam Lords” contest

Anvil Industry wonders what’s in a name… Well, it’s everything. They want to rename their Steam Lords line and they’d like your help.

STEAM LORDS RENAMING – suggestions and feedback please!! Free minis up for grabs if I end up using a suggestion.

I picked the name “Steam Lords” because I needed a name for some miniatures a while ago, I didn’t put much thought in to it.

Ive since developed the concept and background of the miniatures, and in future I intend to focus less on the historical elements and more on the themes of the “Hard Edged” Near Future Sci-Fi world I envisage these soldiers fighting over.

I want the new name to describe what they are, it has to be short and punchy – my initial thoughts include stuff like “Mech Lord” “Exo-Lord” “Mech Legionnaire”. “Exo-Mech Infantry” etc etc

But I thought I would open it up to you guys – feedback on my ideas and your own suggestions please
