Friday, glorious Friday. We’ve once more made it to that glorious day. The weekend stretches ahead of us after a workday like an infinite sea of possibility… Ok, maybe I’m getting a bit dramatic. But hopefully your weekend will include some gaming of some sort. Even if not gaming, itself, then putting together some models or painting or some sort of hobby-related activity. I think I’m going to work on a couple more DreamForge kits I’ve had for a bit that really need to put together.
But that’s the future. The present is a set of bite-sized stories we’ve collected together from the past couple days.
Today’s batch includes: Final days for Bomarzo on Kickstarter, Icarus Miniatures Preview Gabriel Cross 3D Print, Troop Element Trays and Bases now at The Ion Age, Frontier Suns have finally arrived at Lone Gunman Games, and Kromlech New Release – Kri’tho’ann – Herald of Pain.
It’s Sunday. Here in the States, it’s Father’s Day. If you are a father, hope you have a great Father’s Day. If you’re not a father, I still hope you have a great day, regardless. As for me, I’m sitting here at the start of the last day of CMON Expo 2015. It’s been a great time. Very busy, lots of panels yesterday. I hope you enjoyed the reports of all the new stuff. I’ll get you a link to the other photo collections here in a minute from yesterday, and there will be some more today.
But anyway, for the moment, we’re getting together the bite-sized stories we’ve come across in the past couple days.
In this batch we have: Dragon Forge Tech-Deck Additions – Expansion Base Set Kickstarter Running Now, Pedion Wall System unlocked, New Dwarves Female Regiment 28mm from Scibor, Fantasy Concept Cards IV: Creatures and Treasures on Kickstarter Now, Dungeon Revolutions is available now from Thomarillion, Amber Portable Weapon and Gun Crew at The Ion Age, 28mm Satyr Group now available from Lone Gunman Games, Khurasan releases planet-killing space monster, Tabletop-Art Ancestral Ruins RL 30mm and 40mm Deals Available Now, Brigade Models – New 15mm Releases, Battle Flag : Cloth Battlemats for Wargames Indiegogo, Q-Workshop to Publish Shadowrun Dice, Secret Weapon Adds Five New Knight Bases, Manorhouse Workshop Launches Underground Terrain Kickstarter, Post Captain Master Index Pt 3 Shore Raids Chapters, and Heroic Maps – Modular Kit: Town – Streets & Houses.
