Friday Snippets

Fridaaaaaaay! Wooo!
Friday of a 3-day weekend! WOOOOOOO!!!
I’ve already been seeing quite a lot of pictures from downtown as many of my friends make their way to Dragon*Con. But that’s far from the only convention going on this weekend. It seems like there’s like 4-5 of them going on. So, if you want to get your gaming on, you can certainly find a place to do it. Mine will likely be at my place or a friend’s house (no, I don’t want to fight the traffic downtown, thakyouverymuch). But whatever you do, you should stock up on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Gaddis Gaming TableTopper 2.0 on Kickstarter, Precision Pivoting Arcs Up On Kickstarter, New Legionary Hunter Pattern Jump Packs From Kromlech, New Chaos Legionary Maces Available From Kromlech, and Menhir Games Previews Unnatural: Horror Creatures Kickstarter.

Shattered Crown Weird War I Game Up On Kickstarter

Good news, everyone! We have defeated the Martians!
The problem is that the world alliance that was able to do so didn’t really last, and it looks like all the nations are gearing up for what will surely be called The Great War.
That’s the broad story behind Shattered Crown, a new alternate history miniatures skirmish game that’s up on Kickstarter. The initial launch looks to fund a line of figures representing the Harlem HellFighters, the first African American regiment to serve in the American Expeditionary Force in the war.

Terrain Corner/Snippets

So, as I was in a car for just slightly more than 1/2 of yesterday, I didn’t get much of a chance to post up the Midweek Snippets post. As such, I’m rolling it in with today’s Terrain Corner, as I have a bit of time right now to do so (and to give you a “peek behind the curtain,” I’m actually typing this late at night here on Wednesday).

Anyway, in this Terrain Corner/Snippets post we have: Gaddis Gaming Launches 28mm WWII Miniatures Kickstarter, Turn One Gaming Supplies Releases 8-Bit Dice, Donnybrook skirmish game rulebook now available, Post Apocalyptic Dwarf Bikers Up On Kickstarter, Round-Lip Space Dungeon Bases Available From Tabletop-Art, Heroic Maps – Giant Maps: The Great Labyrinth Now Available, MidKnight Heroes Super Chibi Finial sculpts are in and late pledge extended, Crossover Miniatures Releases Frederick Class Airship, Meka Desert: Pwork Wargames science fiction gaming mat, Gamelyn responds to backers with only 3 days left, and Battle Valor Games 15mm Fantasy New Releases.

Midweek Snippets

Welcome to Wednesday you wonderful … umm… something-gaming-related-that-begins-with-W! The first half of the week is over. It’s all downhill from here to a hopefully gaming-filled weekend. I’ve got my plans set, heading over to a friend’s house for his birthday party where there will be plenty of gaming to be had. I don’t know of anyone else more into gaming than Joe-Nathan, so it should be a blast.

Anyway, that’s as may-be. At the moment, we’ve once more collected the bite-sized stories together we’ve found over the past couple days and present them to you now on a silver platter we like to call “Snippets.”

In this batch we have: New Outer Space Play Mats from Gale Force 9, New Woodland Mat from Pwork Wargames, Atlantis Miniatures Previews Upcoming Orc and Goblin Range of Minis, 31cm tall Idol of Cthulhu preorder + New WIP of the Dragon Queen by Kabuki Models, Khurasan releases 15mm uparmoured HMMWVs, Amera Plastic Mouldings New 1/48 Fighter Blast Pen, Gaddis Gaming Launches Gaming Tabletop Kickstarter, Dwarves Veterans 10 miniatures set from Scibor, New Heroic Maps – Terrain: Lunar, YanDrassi range released at 15mm.co.uk, ModCube Customizable Token/Dice On Kickstarter, Siren Miniatures new releases – its girls time, Okumarts Games Launches Steampunk Print and Play Miniature Line, Sebitar Workshop running 15mm Wizard’s Tower Indiegogo Campaign, and New Southgate Terrain Piece from Thomarillion.
