It's Wednesday. But it's also like a Friday, since my weekend starts this afternoon. Either way, we need to get you some bite-sized gaming stories before you head out to the BBQ. So, let's get right to it.
Today on the platter we have: Kraken Dice Blowout Sale Happening Now, New Releases Available From Bombshell Miniatures, and Alternate Stars Sci-Fi Minis Available From Alternative Armies.
Yes, it's Friday. My 2nd favorite day of the week. It was also nice and cool out this morning, only reinforcing what I've already got in my mind that it's Autumn already and you can't tell me different. *puts on Type O Negative list on Spotify* Hey Bacchuuuuuuuuuuus-aaah, she hates meeeeeeeeeee.
So while I jam out, let's also get some bite-sized gaming stories in us.
Today on the platter we have: Bombshell Minis August Sales Happening Now, Krakon Games has launched Overlords 2: The Hunt, Tomb of Skalbar D&D 5th Edition Video Game Coming to Kickstarter, Perfect Plastic Dice Up On Kickstarter, and Brigade Models Releases New British Aeronef.
Gamers love to be the first one on their block with the new releases when they're available. One way to ensure you get that is to put your name on the list for a pre-order. Well, Counterblast, the retro-sci-fi minis game from Bombshell Miniatures, is getting a new edition. You can pre-order it now. Doing so will also get you some cool goodies with your order.
Counterblast, by Bombshell Minis, looks to recapture the retro-feeling of 50s and 60s sci-fi. One aspect of that era that they've not yet tapped into is the bits of memorabilia that goes along with it. Well, they're looking to rectify that with their Lunchbox Edition of Counterblast. More than just a cool carrying case, it's a starter set that'll get you and an opponent gaming in no time.
We're making our way there, ladies and gentlemen. The previous weekend is as far from us as the next one is to us. Have you started getting together any plans? We've got the gaming day at the library coming up this weekend. Gonna hang out and play some Guild Ball and hopefully Fujian Trader. But we've still got a couple days to get through, first. So let's stock up on some bite-sized gaming stories.
Today we have: Luxumbra: Infinity Collectors on Kickstarter, New Silvia Model Available From Brother Vinni, New DBA 3.0 East Frankish or Norman Army Pack Now Available From Baueda, Brigade Models Release Netherlands Aeronef, Gioconomicon Posts Photos From Nuremberg Toy Fair, February Releases Available From Terrible Kids Stuff, PicoArmor's War College is Open, KaYo Miniatures Clown Army Up On Kickstarter, MattimaoPaints Having A Sale On How To Paint Board Game Miniatures Book, Three new SCW 28mm flag sets From Minairons Miniatures, Company B Releases BA-10 Armored Car, Win this Painted Edo Scutter From Bombshell Miniatures, New Age of Sigmar Tokens and Templates Available from Advanced Deployment, Miss Cupidon Available From Predastore, and Oldhammer Goblins Up On Kickstarter.
We're once more halfway through the week. So far, it's been a pretty standard week. After the chaos of the week before, I'm not complaining about that at all. I'm also not complaining about the temperatures we're supposed to get to today here in Atlanta. I might just open the windows when I get home. But that's as may be. Right now, it's time to stock up on some bite-sized gaming stories.
Today on the platter we have: Final Days for Sector 6 on Kickstarter, Acheson Releases More Dungeon Worlds Part 2 Figures, Special Artizan Service Miniatures Presents: F.U.B.A.R 28mm WW2 Rangers Kickstarter, Life of the Party Comic Up On Kickstarter, 4th Canadian Mechanised Brigade Group KickOFF, New Bedlam Release from Kromlech, Win this pre-Release Combot kit, Flatminis releases a new wave of 2D heroes, and Mighty Meeples: DC Comics Series 1 Now Available.
Is this week going by quickly for everyone else, or is it just me? I woke up this morning and sort of shocked myself with the fact that I was putting on my Wednesday shirt already. We'll be getting to the weekend before we know it. But in the meantime, we should stock up on some bite-size gaming stories.
On the platter today we have: Kev White does Matt Dixon - Female Fantasy Miniatures Up On Kickstarter, Bombshell Miniatures Running Bombshell Babes III Kickstarter, Raid & Trade: From Hell to Desert Free Scenario Available, 12 Realms: Black Fortresses Alliance Free Scenario Available, Dark Art Studios Previews Devil’s Dungeon Miniature Series, Upwind RPG Coming to Kickstarter Soon, Oddzial Osmy’s 3mm and 15mm September Releases Arrive at PicoArmor, First Wave of 2D Miniatures Available From Flatminis, Kromlech New Release: Legionary Magma Cannon, Mystic Circle Stones Bases 30mm and 40mm Available From Tabletop-Art, Khurasan releases 15mm 1980s US Army Mech Infantry and M113 APC, New Elven Amazon From Brother Vinni, FossilPunk Foundry Unveils New Miniatures for Sauriana, The Goblin Hoarde's Hoard Bundle & Our Goblin Army Patreon From Fat Goblin Games, Scroll and Codex: Dice Tower and Rolling Tray Kickstarter Running Now, New Releases from RAFM Miniatures, Dynamite Nurse Coming To Kickstarter Next Month, Purgatory Miniatures Previews Their Kickstarter Page, Kromlech New Release: Orc Iron Mask Heads, and Khurasan releases 15mm Late 16th Century Master Gunners.
Ok, everyone, we're progressing along at a nice, steady pace through the week. We can keep this up. We can manage to continue this direction and speed and the weekend will be here before we know it. But we should stock up on energy. A great way to do that is via some bite-sized gaming stories. Good thing that's just what we have for you now.
Today's snippets include: New Tokens and Scoreboard Available From Advanced Deployment, Guild Ball Bag Standard Load Out Available From Battle Foam, Rebel Minis Releases 28mm Unarmed Civilians, Brigade Models Release New 15mm vehicles, Bombshell Miniatures launches KritterKins Kickstarter, Final Days For The Vampire, the Elf and the Cthulhu On Kickstarter, and Last three days for 25% off with intro deal At EZPainter.
Monday and Tuesday are in the rear view mirror. Meanwhile, we work our way towards the weekend. We're halfway there, people. We can make it. But if we're gonna do it, we should stock up on some bite-sized gaming stories. Thankfully, that's just the sort of thing we have for you right now.
In this installment there is: Q-Workshop to Release Battletech Dice, ToSS: Trials of Sword and Staff Coming To Kickstarter May 14th, Dreamwars Hits Kickstarter Next Week, Oddzial Osmy’s 3mm April Releases Arrive at PicoArmor, Awful Fantasy: The Card Game coming to Kickstarter May 3, The Painting Frog announces new "Rumble in the Jungle" 40K event, VIII Corps: The Somme 1916 Coming April 29th, Khurasan releases 6mm space demons, New 30mm and 40mm Trench Warfare Bases Available From Tabletop-Art, Final stages of JoeK Minis' Odyssey:Argonauts Kickstarter, KritterKins on Kickstarter April 25th, Mutant Chronicles GM Screen and Dark Legion & Dark Symmetry dice Now Available, British 8th Army WWII 28mm Miniatures Now Available From Crucible Crush, 28mm Halfling Militia Rooster Rider Miniatures on Kickstarter Now, and New models for Ramshackle Miniatures Dwarf Bikers.

Today we have: Mekawing Z 1.9.5 released in English, Selina Special offer By Battlegate Games, MidKnight Heroes opens up back end pledges for the Super Chibi Kickstarter, The Argyle Frigate Miniature is now Available for Legends of Kalidasia, Raging Heroes Releases Nepharya (NecroPriestess), Tabletop-Art Previews Space Dungeon Round-Lip Bases, Counterblast - free Beta Rules Posted, Heroic Scale Female Heads 2 available to Pre-Order now From Statuesque Miniatures, Bad Squiddo's Women of the Red Army go on Pre-order, and Final Week for Twisted Kickstarter.
And we've made it to Friday. The weekend is just a "rest of the work day" away. Unless, of course, you have to work on Saturday and/or Sunday. As someone who used to work at a hospital, I know your pain. Which reminds me, be sure to thank your LGS workers this weekend. Without them, we'd not have cool places to meet and play games.
In the meantime, though, we should fuel up on some bite-size gaming stories.
Today we have: Bombshell Miniatures Having March Madness Sale, Epic Wing pack Available From Puppets War, Tor Gaming Relics Videos Survey Contest, New 15mm Scifi Rules set in Development, Orc Mecha-Armours Weekend Special from Kromlech, and Bucks, Bullets, And Flowers Board Game Coming Soon To Kickstarter.
We're getting there, people. We're getting there. The weekend is damn-near here. I've got a couple Guild Ball teams to put together. It's so close that our friends over in Australia are already there. Hello people in the future! How's the weekend starting out? Good, I hope. My you're up late.
Anyway, whether you're enjoying a midnight snack, some dinner (for those in, say, England), or an afternoon snack (those here in the Eastern part of the US), now's a good time for some bite-sized stories.
In this installment of Snippets we have: Win a C'thu Dice Bag From Tor Gaming, Fate of Akalon: Tribes Returning To Kickstarter Next Week, New Legionaries Vibro Talons Available From Kromlech, New 15mm Sci-Fi Minis Up On Kickstarter, Khurasan releases more 15mm Mutant Supersoldiers, Pacific Coast Creative Publishing To Release Age of the Wizard Lords RPG, DayTrippers Golden Age Coming Leap Day, and Counterblast Hero Builder Beta v.1 Available.
It's time once again for Friday. Now, normally, the week after a "short week" (such as last week) feels like they take forever. At least, to me they do. That's why if given my druthers, I'd have a Monday off rather than a Friday. You get a long weekend and then a short week, as opposed to a short week, long weekend, then a regular week. But that's me. Anyway, I'm happy to say that this week feels like it's just flown by. Here we are already ready for a weekend. And baking fruitcake will be my reward.
But before we can get there, we have some business to attend to, such as a group of bite-sized stories we've collected over the past couple days. What sort of stories?
Ones like these: New Releases Available for Wolsung SSG from Micro Art Studio, Khurasan pre-release deal for 15mm late Cold War armour, Shark Day Miniature Available From Wonderlands Project, Krampus for Kaiju Kaos: The Miniatures Game Released, New releases for By Fire and Sword, Coming Soon - The Prometheans from Nexus Miniatures, Kromlech Legionary Thunder Gun with under-barrel Plasma Gun Now Available, Slavic Fantasy Miniatures Kickstarter by Deraj Studios has Launched, WH40k: Tactical Objectives App Release Date Announced, Post Captain Squadron Action Scenarios Posted, Bombshell Babes 2 on Preorder from Bombshell Miniatures, and Alexander Nevsky ready for Forgestarter campaign.
Or is it Friday Snippets, because I have the day off tomorrow? (and hopefully you do, too) Either way, it's some bite-sized stories before we have lots more bites tomorrow for Thanksgiving. And yes, I really am as jazzed about the holiday as it seems.
Anyway, today's bites include: Lead Adventure Miniatures Release Bruegelburg Knights, Bombshell November Releases Posted, YooAmeGames preview their new card game Madness Skull, New website/store for Imaginative Miniatures, New Statuesque Pulp Alley Pre-Orders, Aegis Studios Releases Character Compendium 1 Under the Hero Kids Compatibility License, Notification of Results for the 2015 Windhammer Prize, Dark Art Studios Launches Forums, Announcing the First Wave of Scenarios for Post Captain, New Windfall Bases Available From Kromlech, Echoes Revealed for Shattered Earth's Humanist Rebellion, Watchful I Studio proudly announces that it will be opening its webstore, Games Workshop Black Friday Deals Coming Soon, and New Hammer's Slammer Detachment Packs From Brigade Models.
I'm in my KSU baseball jersey, so it must be Wednesday. And if it's Wednesday, that means there's another batch of bite-sized stories to give you.
In this group we have: Spaceteam Card Game Coming To Kickstarter, Bombshell Babes II Up On Kickstarter, New Warthrone approved army list: Bretonnia from Warhammer, Two New Releases from Hitech Miniatures, DrunkQuest Updates Kickstarter With How To Play, Great War Mammooth revealed from Shieldwolf Miniatures, and Kabuki Models Posts Bonny Anne bust boxart.
Bombshell Miniatures is in their final hours over on Kickstarter for their Counterblast Heavy Support campaign. They've made it over their funding goal and are just looking to push through to get some more stretch goals broken before the time runs out. The campaign ends at 9:45pm, Eastern (so 9:45 from time of this posting), so if you want in on it, you'd better hurry.
Bombshell Miniatures has launched a Kickstarter campaign in order to bring some heavy support to the world of Counterblast. The fights in the pop-sci-fi world of Counterblast are getting serious and some heavy machinery is making its way to your tabletops. You can get the Edofleini Scutter, Lancers I-51 Barracuda (*guitar riff*), or the Mekkus Cybot. This is a quick campaign, ending on the 15th. So if you want in, you'd better hurry!
Bombshell Miniatures has their new releases for April posted up on their website. They have their Candy the Mobile Sniper. They found some more of their Scout Ship so they'll be in the shop. Also new is the Serina the Mermaid model in the shop. Finally, they will have their Jungle Elf on Raptor available soon. They also have a Hero Builder up that you can try out for Counterblast.
Bombshell Miniatures has their latest releases for Counterblast up on their website. They've also got a sale running all month for the core rulebook for the game. You can get it at 20% off the regular price. Plus, you can get the free 1.1 rules addendum, which is basically the E&C for the game. There's also the Psionic Power Cards to check out. Lots going on for you to see.
We've got another batch of smaller-sized stories for you this Wednesday.
Beyond the cut we've got: New Spaceships from Brigade Models, a 28mm PDF New Orleans Warehouse from Finger and Toe, the latest releases from Bombshell Miniatures, the latest releases from Spectre Miniatures, new 10mm Caen House from Escenografia Epsilon, New Nuclear Adventurers and a Valentine's Day sale from Brother Vinni, a new Sailboat Hull from Thomarillion, new Mutants and Aliens released by Loud Ninja Games, Spanish edition of Strategikon released by Capitan Games, Aegis Studios Releases Contagion Second Edition Gamemaster Screen, More new model previews for Alternative Civil War, the Spell Saga tabletop novel now available in limited quantities, new Valentine's Day Miniature and Decals and Smoke Plume from Ginfritter's Workshop, and LaserCutCard container price drop.
Bombshell Miniatures brings you two new releases for December over in their webshop. First is their Kaitlyn Archer mini (not sure if Archer is her last name or just what she is... possibly both, I guess). Their other new release is Slynx the Cat (I see what they did there). He looks like he'd make a good animal companion or familiar mini for your druid or wizard.
Both are eligible for Bombshell's winter sale they've got going on now, too.
Next up on the Counterblast unboxing list is the Edofleini. Or, as everyone is always going to call them, the Edo. Otherwise known as space squids. Because you can't have pulp sci-fi without space squids. These are going to to be a fantastic choice for people that want to do something a little off-the-wall with their paint schemes. I mean, accuracy isn't going to be an issue with space squids, right? You can do whatever you want! But there are delightful decisions to be made even before you prime them, right from the moment you take them out of the box. So let's take a look, shall we?
Counterblast is a skirmish level rule set and players can easily get into a game with only a handful of minis and a playing surface measuring three or four square feet. The system uses ten sided dice so you’ll need to have a handful of these as well as tape measures for everyone as Counterblast uses inches. Honestly, there isn’t a huge start-up cost to dip your toe into Counterblast (unlike plenty of other systems out there) and you can certainly field a crew of five of six minis on each side.
