Midweek Snippets

Halfway there.
We’re halfway to getting back to the weekend. Methinks I’m going to take it easy this weekend. I found out my LGS is going to be absolutely packed with several events running for games I don’t really play, so I’ll probably just veg at my place. I could use a relaxing couple of days, anyway. Though it does mean I still need to wait to break in my custom Guild Ball mat (more on that tomorrow. Stay tuned). In the meantime, I’m feeling a bit peckish, so how about noshing on some bite-sized gaming stories?

Today on the platter we have: New Options For Really Useful Box Storage System From Sally 4th, Statuesque Starport Able Spacewomen Now Available, New 3mm C-130 Hercules at PicoArmor, New Orc Hand Grenades Available From Kromlech, Impact! Miniatures D3 to D30 Dice Chains on KickStarter now with Cotton Candy dice, 3D Printable Tanks Up On Kickstarter, and Fantasy Stock Art & RPG Minis Up On Kickstarter.

This week feels like it’s going by quickly. I was waking up this morning and went, “whoah… it’s already Wednesday.” Seems those podcasts are helping. Either that, or it’s because I’m pretty busy over here. Lots going on behind the scenes. My screen’s pretty full of stuff, to be honest. And if I’m going to get through all of it, I should power up on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: LARC 32mm Resin VTOL up on Kickstarter, Matilda Tanks Available to Pre-Order From Victoria Miniatures, New Legionary Banners Available from Kromlech, Final Days For Impact! Miniatures Elf Fantasy Football Teams Kickstarter, and Ratgard Previews Leader Ratss Battle Tank.

The week of “getting back to usual” continues along. Of course, we’ll get back off schedule a little, since it’s a 3-day weekend here in the States. But still, good to be on schedule while you can. But, seeing as we’re getting ready for a 3-day weekend, that means we should be fully-powered up on gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: New Skull Wound Markers Available From Kromlech, Last days for bargain deal at EZPainter, Chibi Giants & Swarms Fantasy RPG Miniatures Up On Kickstarter, Acheson Creations Releases Short-Faced Bear Mini, and Final Week For Archmage Origins Up On Kickstarter.

Resin Rolljordan Necro & Volmarian Dwarf Fantasy Football Teams Up On Kickstarter

It’s amazing how different a figure can cost when made out of different materials. I know that’s pretty common knowledge, but it still often blows my mind. Case in point: Impact! Miniatures and Royal Art Games have a Kickstarter running now in order to make a couple of Rolljordan fantasy football teams out of resin, as opposed to the metal that they’re currently made in. Doing so will basically cut the price in half for said teams. Go check them out now.

New Amazon, Elf, and Dark Elf Fantasy Football Teams On Kickstarter

Well, with a company name like Impact! Miniatures, it seems only right that they’ve got some teams out there for fantasy football (it’s sort of what they were known for before they went into the chibi and dice market for a while there). Well, they’re back with not one, or two, but three teams, upsized to 32mm, over on Kickstarter.

Impact City Roller Derby Board Game Up On Kickstarter

As we’ve seen from time to time here on TGN, games can occasionally go from one company to another to be produced. That happened with Impact City Roller Derby. Impact! Miniatures originally created it, but it was Game Salute that produced it. Well, Game Salute doesn’t want it anymore and are looking to sell the license. Impact! Miniatures is taking the opportunity to get the game back, and they’ve started a Kickstarter campaign in order to raise the funds for it, as well as create new resin figures for it.

Wednesday already? This week sure seems to be moving along. That’s very much not a complaint, mind you. I’ve got board game day coming up this Saturday. We’re also going to be starting our new D&D game. So I’m very much ready for it to be Saturday. But if I want to keep up this pace, I’d better refuel on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: New female Torsos and First BFG Sledgehammer Pics From Victoria Miniatures, Suede Dice Bags Up On Kickstarter, Purgatory Miniatures Up On Kickstarter, Impact!

The work week continues along. It’s already half-over, in fact. Hopefully yours is going well. Mine’s not been great, but I’m making it through. Got board game day at the library coming up this weekend again. Should be a good time. But in the meantime, let’s bulk up on some bite-size gaming stories.

The week rolls on. We’re halfway there. The weekend is ever-closer as time marches on, and other sayings of “it’s not yesterday anymore!” It seems people around me are feeling a bit drained. Tuesday wasn’t the best for them, so they’re gonna try and regroup today. Along with that, getting some bite-size gaming stories in their brain will help out, I’m sure. So let’s get to that.

On today’s platter we have: Jess is done for Purgatory, Men and Monsters of Ethiopia Cardstock Characters Now Available, Final Week For The Lords of Rock On Kickstarter, Triple Ace Games Running Viking Dice Kickstarter, New Kromlech Release: Legionary Frag Launcher, and True 13 and 15 sided Dice now funding on Kickstarter.

Since several of the races in Earthdawn are unique in fantasy RPGs, this project will be an opportunity to have miniatures cast that match better with your characters while playing Earthdawn.

The miniatures are 28mm scale and are all aimed to be very affordable on the gamer budget with costs of $2.33 to $5 each.

We unlocked the Ranger Pony tonight! Thank you backers! Great to see another stretch goal reached. The Ranger Pony will be a 5 point pony if you want to plan for it ahead of getting it into the miniatures list.

I’m packing up the truck for Gen Con tonight and our artist Lorraine is out the door as well so it might be Monday or Tuesday of next week before we can show you art for the Ranger … but we have requested it and will show it as soon as it is finished.

The next Stretch Goal is at $9,750. For this one we are going to do a poll for what Monster Pony you would like to see unlocked and added to the list of figures you can choose with your points.. You have 3 choices for this one:

1) Hippocampus (Sea Pony)
2) Vampire Pony (with optional Cape Accessory (which could be used to make a Superpony))
3) Patchwork Pony (aka … stitches all over by being assembled from different ponies and then animated by science (or magic) … probably will have small lug nuts in the neck).

Okay so Chris and I are blown away with how well this project has done and definitely wanted to thank everyone as we enter the final days.

From the campaign:

So it has been like 2 years man since I’ve visited KickStarter and at the bowling alley a few days ago Walter starts talking crazy about how in case of a Zombie apocalypse that he won’t be just some civilian.

Got me thinking that a lot of my friends and people the Dude has met would make some interesting civilians to really tie a zombie game together or just have all of us on your shelf or your rug.

However still no cash. So I’m like asking for the help of the KickStarter backers to get a spincast resin mold made so the Dude and all his friends and come and join your next game.

Now I leave it to someone who talks as fast as Donny (may he rest in peace) to give you the details.
