Friday Snippets Corner

Hey everyone.
Well, the first week of the year is coming to a close. It’s been… an odd one. Monday I had off. Tuesday I had to take my car in for repairs (which got finished up on Thursday, since they had to order in a part). Wednesday and Thursday I had some stomach issues. Now it’s Friday and everyone here in Atlanta is bracing for a “huge snowstorm” that’s on its way. Hopefully it’s not too bad and everyone out there stays safe.
But just as everyone is stocking up on bread and milk, let’s stock up on some bite-sized gaming stories, as well as some terrain pieces from this week.

As such, we have: Flat Plastic Miniatures 2 Up On Kickstarter, New Sleeves Unlocked in Mage Company Kickstarter, New Metalized Discworld Death Bust From Micro Art Studio, New Magnetic Foil Sets Available From Tabletop-Art, Avatars of War Having Plastic Harpies Sale This Week, Brigade Models 6mm Habitation Dome Released, Heer46 launches Gebirgsjaeger Kickstarter, Molecules of Hatred: Wulfrim Irongrudge Available, and Acheson Releases More Dungeon Worlds Part 2 Figures.

Heer46 launches Panzerkampfwagen Löwe 1:48 Indiegogo Campaign

Heer46 launched an Indiegogo campaign in order to fund a new Loewe 1:48-scale tank. Go check it out.

From the campaign:

The goal of the campaign is the production of the Panzerkampfwagen Löwe in 28mm/1:48 scale. The realization of this project necessitates several steps, beginning with the rendering of the files for the 3D-printing, leading to the production of the molds and concluding with the production of the final model-kit. Those steps are quite costly and for one person it´s not that easy to fund such a project. Also the funding-campaign allows us to gouge the demand.
