Midweek Snippets

By this time next week, multitudes of gamers will be converging on Indianapolis, ready for the start of Gen Con the next day. Yeah, we’re a week and a day away from the start of the show. Though, many people know that basically the whole week is Gen Con, these days. So we should probably stock up on some bite-sized gaming stories to see us through.

Today we have: Riot Dice Up On Kickstarter, Warbands of the Cold North Dwarves Up On Kickstarter, New Releases Available From Dark Sword Miniatures, Lead Adventure Miniatures Running Bruegelburg – A Day at the Fair Kickstarter, New Glyphs Available From Kromlech, Metallic Legends: Collectible Fantasy Coins Up On Kickstarter, Super Chibi Round 3 Up On Kickstarter, New Basing Dials From Pyrkol, Brigade Models Releases New 15mm SF Vehicles, and Scotia Grendel Doing UK/European Production for Delvers Lost in the Dungeons of Doom III.

It’s Friday! Woo! We all know how much I love the weekend. Do you have any gaming plans? I know a lot of you are at/will be at the UK Games Expo. For me, I just got my “I Can’t Believe It’s Not Tiamat” yesterday from Bones III, so I’ll be putting that together. But whatever it is you might be doing, you’ll probably want to stock up on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Astropolis II – The Galactic Melting Pot Up On Kickstarter and New War Bull Available from Scibor.

Midweek Snippets

We’re already to Wednesday. That’s what happens when you’ve got a day off at the start of the week.
This’ll be my last day here in the old office. We’re moving up the street a couple miles to a new building. Got a couple days at home, though, as they work to finish up some last details on the new place (like… internet) and get all the furniture and such in place. But in the meantime, let’s stock up on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Ares Games Announces Divinity Derby Kickstarter, New 6mm American Civil War Paper Armies From Grand Manoeuvre, New Releases Available From Dark Sword Miniatures, Squarriors: The Card Game Coming To Kickstarter, Lead Adventure Miniatures Launches Dwarven Gold Fever, and Badass Riders Coming To Kickstarter.

Friday Snippets

Friiiiiiidaaaaaaay! The gateway to the weekend. Hopefully you’ve got some gaming planned for the next couple days. I don’t have anything specific lined up, but there’s still plenty of time. At the very least, I’m thinking I want to make some brownies this weekend. Though I might throw in something a little special…
That being cayenne pepper. You know, I’ve heard a lot about mixing “heat” with “sweet” and am finally gonna give it a go. I’ll let you know about the results.

Anyway, before we get to those tasty bites, we have some tasty bites here to deal with.

On today’s platter we have: New Thousand Sons Legion Transfer Sheet From Forge World, Lead Adventure Miniatures Launches Astropolis Kickstarter, Terrible Kids Stuff Posts September New Releases, New Damage Trackers From Proxie Models, Syrinscape Releases Geek & Sundry’s Critical Role: Goblin Raid SoundPack, Code Orange Games Running Free Collision Model Giveaway Contest, Kromlech Weekend Promo: Jump Packs, Turncoat Games Running WWII Cavalry Kickstarter, and Sally 4th Posts Free Combat Patrol – Falklands War Supplement.
