Friday Snippets

And here we are again. Friday: threshold to the weekend. I’m sure many of you are gearing up for a weekend of gaming, possibly starting as early as when you get off of work. I’m looking to spend tomorrow at the LGS, hopefully getting in some games of Guild Ball and Bushido. But whatever your gaming vice might be, it’s best to top off with some bite-sized gaming stories before diving in.

Today on the platter we have: THEO – The Hobby Equipment Organizer Up On Kickstarter, New Sisters of Eternal Mercy Available From Raging Heroes, New Cobblestone Bases Available From Tabletop-Art, New Flocking/Basing System Available From Fontline Games, New 28mm Romanian 75mm Resita Anti-tank Gun M1943, Open Game Master Looking To Bring Drop-In D&D To The Masses, and It’s Bomber Month at PicoArmor.

Thursday Terrain Corner

So the middle of yesterday sort of dragged along, but overall the week is still going by in a flash (for me, at least). Hopefully you have weekend plans like I do. We’re going to be having a build party for my friend’s original Kingdom Death set. Though, really, I’m gonna be trying to get people to play Guild Ball, instead, since I didn’t get a chance last week like I was gonna have. 😛

But in the meantime, we need to make your gaming tables look as good as possible.

In the Terrain Corner today we have: Frontline Games 20% OFF Holiday Sale Plus Special Deals, Dungeon Worlds Part 3 Kickstarter Stretch Goal #2 Posted, New Micro Art Studio battlefield terrain, Deep-Cut Studio releases a new game mat for Dropzone Commander, GAMEIN5D Foldable Game Board On Kickstarter, Deadland: Pwork Wargames Gaming Mat Now Available, Final Hours For Exotic Locations Indiegogo Campaign, Heroic Maps Whitlark Forest Trading Post Now Available, and New Tyranid Hive Planet Mat From Warzone Studio.

Monday Terrain Corner

*coughcough*
Ugh… Yesterday I woke up with a slightly scratch throat. Unfortunately, as the day wore on, it got worse and worse. As such, I’m typing this from home, as opposed to the office. That way, I’m not “Patient 0” in an office-wide epidemic.

But that doesn’t mean I can’t bring you some stories to help make your gaming table look as good as possible.

So in today’s Terrain Corner we have: Manorhouse Workshop Update #28 – 3 new 3D Bases, Frontline Games Releases Stones Master Builder Set Dungeon Tiles, Brigade Models Release New 15mm Research Base Unit, and Mats by Mars: Mechanica Tabletop Wargaming Play Mat Now Available.

New Add-Ons for Stones Dungeon Tiles Kickstarter

Frontline Games has posted some new add-ons for their Stones Dungeon Tiles Kickstarter campaign. These include a new carrying case to help you get your minis around, as well as a stones gaming mat (though think of it less like a gaming mat and more like a table cloth, from the looks of it). The campaign is over 150% funded with still 12 days to go to get in on the action.

Frontline Games launches Stone Dungeon Tiles Kickstarter

Frontline Games has launched a Kickstarter campaign in order to fund a line of Stone Dungeon Tiles. What makes these tiles different from others on the market is that they’re double-sided. So, in a way, you get two tiles for the price of one (or at least, more options for the price of just one option from other manufacturers). The tiles are made out of “Polymer-Plastic,” according to the campaign. They also have an “anti-slip backing” on them to hopefully keep them from moving around too much on the table.

New Purple People Eaters from Frontline-Games

Frontline Games has new, for Alien Attack!, one-eyed, one-horned, flying, purple people-eaters. Sure looks strange to me.

From the update:

New release from Frontline Games – One-eyed, one-horned, flying PURPLE PEOPLE EATERS!

Look out for the Purple People Eaters! These hungry aliens will gobble you up and spit you out…literally. If you’re looking for a free one-way trip to the alien space ship, you can hitch a ride inside one of these creature’s bellies, but we wouldn’t recommend it.

Genetically modified and mind-controlled by “The Grays” to hunt down the “flesh bags” and be live human transporters, the Purple People Eaters are definitely to be avoided at all costs…good luck!

“Purple People Eaters” is an expansion set for “Alien Attack!” A copy of the “Alien Attack” rules is required to play the expansion.

New Zombie Survivors and Townfolk from Frontline Games

Frontline Games (not to be confused with Frontline Gamer, though alphabetically they’re right next to each other) has new Zombie Survivors and Townsfolk for their Zombie Daze and Alien Attack games.

From the update:

More victims (ahem) I mean “characters” for your Alien Attack or Zombie Daze games. Check ‘em out at Frontline-Games.com!

SURVIVORS 1 – T.J. (The Teen Guitarist), The Believer, and The Law! – Zombie Daze Expansion
Yet more Survivors trying to live in an undead world! Intended for play with the Frontline Command Skirmish “Zombie Daze” tabletop game.

TOWNFOLK – Expansion for Alien Attack OR Zombie Daze
Get the civilians! No alien invasion (or zombie apocalypse for that matter) is complete without some ordinary townfolk to gobble up or rescue. These versatile characters come with rules for use in the game of ALIEN ATTACK or ZOMBIE DAZE or BOTH!

2 New Alien Attack! Releases From Frontline-Games

Frontline-Games has two new releases for their Alien Attack! game. Check ’em out: The Greys and Alien Agents & Local Lawmen.

Alien Agents and Local Lawmen – 3 new alien agents, a sheriff, and his deputy, all working with the M.I.Beanss to help rid the world of alien invaders from Planet X!

The Grays – The aliens have had enough of the human “flesh bag” resistance. In the words of Commander Geezor, “No more delays…Send in THE GRAYS!”
