The characters in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles world have gone through dozens of iterations since their initial comic release. Sometimes they’ve been a bit more dark and gritty.

So, in order to give you a look at what you can expect in the upcoming Heroes in a Half Shell set for Dice Masters, WizKids has posted up this little preview.

Marvel Civil War Dice Masters Coming Soon

I almost simply titled that “Civil War Dice Masters Coming Soon.” But then I thought that someone might think that WizKids was teaming up with Warlord Games or something.
And as cool as that would be, it’s not the case. No, this is Marvel’s Civil War, like we’ve got happening in the upcoming Captain America movie. So instead of muskets and cavalry charges, there’s energy beams and flying superheroes.

WizKids Announces World’s Finest Dice Masters Set

TGN Saturday Edition: Review Roundup

Welcome once again to Saturday. It’s been quite a morning over here. Rather busy for a Saturday. Biggest thing I’ve been working on is my decision to magnetize my Betrayal at Calth set (yes, this means it’s not 100% assembled yet. The games I’ve been playing of it have been using stand-in figs for much of it. It happens). The only problem comes from maneuvering small, fiddly pieces that, very literally, will move on their own. As such, I have glue all over my fingers. Thankfully, though, on at least one occasion, that’s helped me when my drill bit slipped and instead of giving me a scrape, it just gouged the glue that’d built up there. So, an asset hidden in a liability.

But that’s a story for when I post the review later today. At the moment, we’ve got other reviews/previews to deal with.

In this batch we have: Late French Napoleonic Infantry from Perry Miniatures and Warlord Games, Dark Moon, Clockwork Kingdom, Queen of the Hill, Dice Masters: The Amazing Spider-Man, Conquest at Kismet, Barony, Star Wars Armada Wave 2 Ships, Tides of Time, Pentoggle, Mars Attacks Miniatures Game, Risk: Star Wars Edition, Space Cadets: Away Missions, Bomb Squad, Escape the Nightmare, and T.I.M.E Stories.
