Friday Snippets

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.

Khan you believe it? New Mongol Cavalry released

Fireforge Games has their new Mongol Cavalry box set available over in their webshop.

Mongol Cavalry

Source

From the release:

“Conquering the world on horseback is easy; it is dismounting and governing that is hard.”
Genghis Khan

Six of every ten Mongol troopers were light cavalry horse archers, the remaining four were more heavily armored and armed lancers. Mongol light cavalry were extremely light troops compared to contemporary standards, allowing them to execute tactics and maneuvers that would have been impractical for a heavier enemy such as European knights. Soldiers usually carried scimitars and light lances as well. All horses were equipped with stirrups. This technical advantage made it easier for the Mongol archers to turn their upper body, and shoot in all directions, including backwards. Each soldier had two to four horses so when a horse tired they could use the other ones which made them one of the fastest armies in the world.
Our new release, “Mongol Cavalry”, is finally available on our webstore. Conquer the world leading these fearsome troops to battle!

Specifications:
This box enables you to build up to 12 mongol horse archers of the 12th/13th century, each one equipped with one hand weapons, shields and/or bows.

The box contains enough plastic bases for Deus Vult gaming system:
50mm x 50mm = 6 bases
25mm x 50mm = 4 bases

One day in the pavilion at Karakorum the great Genghis Khan asked an officer of the Mongol guard what, in all the world, could bring the greatest happiness. After a little thought, the officer responded:
“The open steppe, a clear day, a swift horse under you and a falcon on your wrist to start up hares.”

“Nay,” responded the Kahn, “The greatest things in life are to crush your enemies, to see them fall at your feet – to take their horses and goods and hear the lamentation of their women. That is best.”

Fireforge Games releases Sergeant at Arms

Fireforge Games has released their new Sergeant at Arms minis over in their webshop.

Source

From the release:

Sergeant at Arms were first raised by Philippe II Augustus of France in 1191, during the Third Crusade, as a bodyguard against the Assasins. There were never many of them and they fought alongside the rest of the army as part of the royal familia. Richard I had 24 with him on the Crusades. They were formed into a 20-strong Corps of Sergeants-at-Arms by King Edward I in 1278, as a mounted close escort. In 1399 King Richard II limited the corps to 30 Sergeants, and King Charles II had 16. During 13th century most European Kings likewise established bodies of sergeant at arms. They carried a mace bearing the royal arms as a symbol of office but their armament included a crossbow as well as a short lance and a shield.

This box enables you to build up to 12 mounted sergeant at arms of the 12th/13th century. Several weapon options like spears, swords, axes, maces and crossbows are included.
