Friday Snippets

We’ve once more made it to the weekend.
Well, almost to the weekend, anyway. We’ve still gotta finish today. But hopefully that won’t be too painful to get through. Then… Yeah, I just love weekends. And as I’ve mentioned a couple times, tomorrow’s going to be cram-packed full of gaming. I’m really looking forward to it. Hopefully your day is likewise scheduled.
But before we get there, we should fill up on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: New Tau Heavy Rail Cannon Array From Forge World, Iris Coming To Kickstarter in January, Purgatory Kickstarter is close to another stretch goal, New Mk IV tank From LaserCutCard, Two New APC Turrets Available From Kromlech, and Q’thulu Mini Up On Kickstarter.

Thursday Terrain Corner

The work week continues. We’ve made it over the middle and are working our way back towards the glorious, glorious weekend! Mine’s going to be filled with prepping various articles for the next couple weeks. Lots of photos to take of models in various states of assembly. Fun stuff like that.

But in the meantime, we’ve gotta make sure your gaming tables look as good as they possibly can.

Today’s Terrain Corner stories are: Deep-Cut Studio releases new Beach design gaming mat, Manorhouse Workshop Update #21 – 3D Bases – Kickstarter Preview, Lasercutcard: Infinity Table Deal, Things from the Basement Releases Frosty Line Of Terrain, and Frosty Ruins by Urban Construct at Salute.

Midweek Snippets

Well, as Lynyrd Skynyrd said, Tuesday’s gone. That, of course, means we’ve moved on to Wednesday. Woo! We’re halfway through the week! Always a good feeling that. The weekend is getting closer every minute. Before we get there, though, we need to serve up some bite-sized stories we’ve come across in the past couple days.

This time around we have: New releases from Scotia Grendel, New Targeting System From Puppets War, AntiMatter Games Previews The Beast of Blood Reef, Polyversal After Action Report from Williamsburg Muster, Guadalcanal Battle Set Released by Topside Minis, New Sturmgewehr soldiers from Iron Cross Miniatures, New Trays and Bags Available From Battle Foam, and New Tanks and Turrets From LaserCutCard.

Terrain Corner

Thursday already? I guess a couple crazy days in the middle of the week will make it go by rather quickly. I do sort of hope today and tomorrow just go by without major incident, though, even though it does tend to make time go by fast. Instead, if we can just have a nice, calm, manageable Thursday and Friday, I’d be very appreciative.

And I bet you guys would be appreciative of a Terrain Corner segment. So let’s do that.

Today we have: Manorhouse Workshop Update #10 – 3D Bases – Modular Terrain, TabletopGamerStore.com Releases 28mm Scarred City Battle Ruined Buildings, LaserCutCard: Futurehab #3 Building Now Available, and Pwork Wargames fantasy gaming mat: Badlands Now Available.

Thursday Terrain Corner

We’re getting there, kids. Slowly but surely. The weekend is getting closer.
It was looking like today might’ve had a chance at being a snow day here in Atlanta, but such was not the case. So at least here, we’re not stuck inside. For those of you further north that are stuck inside, why not get out some minis and play a game? And if you’re going to be doing that, you’ll want your table to look nice. Well, that’s where the Terrain Corner comes in.

Today’s stories include: New Orc Terrain Deal From LaserCutCard, Manorhouse Workshop Update#5 – Forgotten Halls: the upper floor inserts in details, and Crossover Miniatures Releases Omura Martian Airship.

And so this week comes to an end… Well… not yet. Technically the week comes to an end tomorrow. But the work week comes to an end today… unless you’re like me and you work weekends as well…
Ok, so this has gotten off-track. It’s Friday. We should all be excited about that. And we’ve got a set of bite-sized stories to share with you. So there.

LaserCutCard gets your troops to battle

LaserCutCard released their new Ratel APC over in their webshop.

Source

From the release:

LaserCutCard is proud to present the fourth vehicle in the “Bush War” series… the Ratel Infantry Fighting Vehicle

The Ratel is the basic infantry fighting vehicle (IFV) of the South African National Defence Force’s mechanized infantry battalions. Ratel is the Afrikaans name for the honey badger, which has a reputation as a ferocious fighter.

This is a cardboard and MDF kit for the Ratel in approximately 1/50 scale. It also includes plastic tubing for weapons and axels.
It is made from layers of 1mm heavy card, laser cut.

The hatches can be modelled open or shut and the kit includes three different turret versions:
– a 90mm cannon (to make the Ratel 90)
– a ZT3 anti-tank turret (to make the Ratel ZT3)

LaserCutCard previews new sci-fi building

LaserCutCard has a preview shot of a sci-fi building they’re working on as part of a new terrain line.

Source

From the preview:

Building 2 detail test
Again, this is a very rough test, no attempt to make the edging neat. This is more to look at what works and what doesn’t – several different details have been added. I need to paint it up to see what works and what doesn’t but adding the detail has done one thing… given a good idea of the final cost. We are looking at about $12 for this level of detail and shipping would be around $5 but you could get 2 buildings and the shipping would still be about $5.

So is that doable?

New Cyborg Statis Tomb from LaserCutCard

LaserCutCard has a new, massive center-piece terrain feature available over in their webshop. It’s usable in several configurations. It’s the Cyborg Stasis Tomb.

Source

From the release:

The cyborg statis tomb sits as a lynchpin in the defence network of the cyborgs. It serves as a fortress, a data processing centre, a repair depot and an energy source.
This is a new type of kit for LaserCutCard because it is modular. It comes with four basic components:
– 4 x corner pieces
– 1 x tower
– 1 x central octagon
– 1 crystal matrix
You can assemble them all together for one big model (the statis tomb)
You can leave out the central octagon to make a cyborg bastion.
You can leave off the top tower and make a landing pad for your other vehicles (and the tower can be a separate piece of terrain)
It has mounting points for 5mm x 1mm magnets (NOT INCLUDED) which can be used to help it clip together.
The model is large but the components are stackable to save space when not in use.
It comes unpainted and unassembled and is U$32.50

New Casspir Armored Vehicle available from LaserCutCard

LaserCutCard has a new Casspir armored vehicle kit available over in their webshop.

This is a cardboard, MDF and plastic kit that is approximately 1/50 scale and is intended for use in any 28mm skirmish system.

In the new year an interior details upgrade kit will be made available as an optional add-on.

After we recently reviewed their excellent Hull Point and Wound Markers, Neal at Laser Cut Card and kindly sent over a sample Shipping Container kit for review.
