Midweek Snippets

Well hello there, middle of the week. Nice to see you. I tell you what, I’m really ready for the weekend. I’m still trying to catch up from Expo on my sleep. But that’s what you get when you’re up late gaming for several nights in a row, followed by full days hanging out with some really awesome people. So, as I try and keep my eyes open, I need to snack on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Imperial Palace bases Available from Dark Art Miniatures, New Flagstone bases now Available From Tabletop-Art, and 20mm Vehicle Armor Plates Available From Ramshackle Games.

Today on the platter we have: New 32mm Infested Bases From Dark Art Miniatures, PeltaPeeps in Mensa Mind Games 2018, New Ancient Oval Bases Available From Micro Art Studio, and Mystery Dice Weekend Sale at Kraken Dice.

Well, it’s certainly been a busy week. But, that also means that things have gone by rather quickly. You know me, I’m always trying to get back to that weekend. But before I get there, I just got a decent-sized proofing project I need to work on. So I’d better make sure I have enough energy by downing some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Introducing The Cocked Roll D&D Web Series, New Imperial Palace Bases Available From Dark Art Miniatures, Ancient Dice Up On Kickstarter, and New Orcs Available From Kromlech.

Friday!
Woo!
*runs around with arms over my head*
Yeah, I’m excited for the weekend. Some of the toy soldiers I ordered a couple weeks ago finally came in at the LGS (yes, it’s Guild Ball stuff) and so I’m planning on being there bright and early at 10am when they open to get ’em. I hope you’ve got somewhat similar plans. But if we’re going to be at the gaming shop good and early, we need to munch on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Cy-Co Western Cyberpunk Board Game Coming to Kickstarter, Bagthulhu Dice Bag Up On Kickstarter, New Releases Available From Hitech Miniatures, 40mm Imperial Palace bases Available From Dark Art Miniatures, Ogroid-fighter by Brother Vinni Now Available, RN Esutido’s Kickstarter Drahontyr the Mountain King unlocked, and Norsaga: Odds and Endings Coming To Kickstarter

We’ve arrived, beautiful readers. Friday is here and we’re making our way through it to the weekend. It won’t be long now and there’ll be a couple great days of just hanging out and maybe doing some gaming. I’m happy because my friend came back from LVO and brought me the new Season 3 cards and a couple players for Guild Ball.

Friiiiiiiidaaaaaaay!
Woo! We’ve made it, everyone! At least for me, it was a nice, calm, “standard” week. As a creature of habit, I’m very grateful for that. Many of us here in the US are also getting a 3-day weekend, what with Martin Luther King Jr. Day being this upcoming Monday. So that’s cool. I hope you have some cool weekend activities planned and that today being Friday the 13th doesn’t mean anything bad for you. But as we go into the weekend, we should stock up on bite-sized gaming stories.

Today we have: New Ruler Designs From Kromlech, Cryptozoic Releases Mighty Meeples: DC Justice League Collection Tin, New Aufklarungs Passenger trays from Dark Art Miniatures, New Warbikes and Trikes from Raging Heroes, Rebel Minis Releases New 28mm Sci-Fi Packs, Cardstock Warriors Site is Live, Weekend Promo from Kromlech, and New Bases Available From Micro Art Studio.

It’s a hive of activity here in the office. We’ve got a lot of extra people in the office in town for the Expo this weekend. And it sounds like they’re building something in the warehouse (which is right behind my desk). Everything for the show is in “Final check” phase. That means utter chaos, of course, but in a good way. 😛
In the meantime, let’s fill up on some bite-sized gaming stories, shall we?

Today we have: Rotten Factory Miniatures – Rise of the Dark Power On Wspieram, Totentanz Miniatures Tercio May releases Posted, Last 5 Days For Aether Captains on Kickstarter, New Ancestral Ruin 32mm and 40mm base deals from Tabletop-Art, Junk Spirit Games announces By Order of the Queen, Dark Siren Available Now From Kabuki Models, Load Board Game Coming To Kickstarter Soon, 15mm WW2 and Vietnam Passenger Trays Available From Dark Art Miniatures, A new design appears From Red Panda Miniatures, Khurasan releases 15mm Soviet T-64B, Brigade Models Release 15mm Neo-Soviet Conscripts, Final Day For Aeon’s End Up On Kickstarter, Hope Board Game Coming To Kickstarter June 9th, and Cross promotion between Fragged Empire and FAITH: The Sci-Fi RPG.

We continue to move forward, not backward, upward, not forward, and always whirling, whirling, twirling towards the weekend. We might also be dizzy now…
Anyway, we have made it halfway through the week. And someone brought a giant bag stuffed with candy and put it in the break room here. So, while I can’t give you a “fun-size” Kit-Kat through the screen (I tried, but then I has to go clean my monitor), I can give you some bite-size gaming stories.

So, for today we have: H.E.A.D. Hunters Coming to Kickstarter This Fall, Unity: A Brand New Indie RPG on the Horizon, New Fire Forge themed bases Available From Dark Art Miniatures, Pipmen Playing Cards (Relaunch) On Kickstarter, Rockabilly Heads Now Available From Tabletop-Art, Golem Miniatures shop is online, New Multi-Mini Deal From Nexus Miniatures, North Star Military Figures Takes Over Day-to-Day Activities of Copplestone Castings, Winter War: Free Combat Patrol supplement for 1939 Russo-Finnish War From Sally 4th, New Stygian Torsos Available From Bits of War, Lands of Ruin Kickstarter reaches the funding goal, and Final Day for Battle Arena Show On Kickstarter.

Monday Terrain Corner

It’s time to head back to the office. Hopefully that’s not too bad of a thing for you. I don’t mind it so much. Been talking with coworkers about all the cool stuff they did over the weekend. Lots of gaming to be had. Good times.

Well, while it seems like we dodged one bullet here in Georgia the other day, only getting some rain. It’s looking tonight like we might get a bit of accumulated precipitation. Though considering tomorrow it’s supposed to get to 38 and the day after it’s supposed to be sunny and 51, I’m not really worried about it.
I can’t really say the same for the rest of GA. They seem like they’re going freaking nuts. But waddyagonnado?
I’m just looking forward to tomorrow when I’m getting my next tattoo. *squee with excitement!*

Before then, though, we need to get you some bite-sized stories. So let’s go ahead and do that.

Today we have: ArmiesArmy 15mm Cold war Kickstarter Breaking Through Stretch Goals, Khurasan releases 15mm PMCs (or special ops), Gob’z’heroes Breaking Through Stretch Goals On Kickstarter, New Iron Reich Goblin Squad Available From Kromlech, FatMan Productions introduces Awakening: Recon, Prang Raider packs and platoon now released From the Ion Age, The Guildmate Half Rack Tray Available From Tectonic Craft Studios, New alternative driver for Titan-Forge zeppelins, Khurasan releases 15mm Middle Eastern Heavy Weapons set, Alternative Armies: 28mm Undead and Monsters range released with freebies, and New Lava Bike/Cavalry bases Available From Dark Art Miniatures.

Taking a break from the RPG Kickstarters for a minute.
Is the week going by quickly for anyone else? On my ride in to work today, I looked down at my dashboard and saw my odometer and, for a moment, went, “why is that so high? It’s only Tues… oh… wait… it’s Wednesday. Ok, that makes sense.”
But seeing as it is Wednesday and all, we should have ourselves a Midweek Snippets.
Man, this is also the first Wednesday in a couple weeks where I don’t have tomorrow off. Makes me a little sad, but I’ll get through it, somehow.

We continue on with the post-Gen Con week’s work. Though I was able to keep up with a lot of things, obviously, things are going to fall behind in some areas. I’m almost out of the mountain of e-mails I’d gotten over the weekend. If I’ve not replied to you yet, don’t worry, I will. There’s just a lot to sort through.

At the moment, though, it’s sorting through a bunch of bite-sized stories.

We’re halfway there, ladies and gentlemen. Halfway to the weekend. If you haven’t started making plans, now would be a good time. For those of you in the US, the 4th of July is Saturday. I’m sure cookouts will abound. And if you’re at one, why not bring along a game or two to play? There’s plenty of party games that would be most welcome at just about any gathering.
For me? I’m going to keep things low-key this weekend. I had two rather busy weekends in a row. So this weekend I’m going to stay at home and cook. What am I going to cook? … I’ve not figured that out yet. Suggestions would be welcome (and any accompanying recipes also welcome).

But as for right now, it’s time for some bite-sized stories.

This batch includes: Fury is funded with 24 day left, Some More Installments of The Fiver from The Meeple Mechanic, New 32mm Resin bases (Tomb, Urban & Sci-fi Deck) from Dark Art Miniatures, Armorcast’s 4th Annual Cinematic Effects Contest is Here, Apex TDBG Expansion Kickstarter is now EU Friendly, Club Fantasci Editorial: Kickstarter Press Releases and Free Promotion, Old Dominion Gameworks posts Post Captain Bonus Ship files, Vending Bot free for July at The Ion Age, and Bullets & Brains Tokens Now Available from Sally 4th.
