Well, the office is a little quieter today as some of the people head out to California for WonderCon this weekend. And this time next week I’m sure I’ll be somewhere in Kentucky or maybe Indiana on my way to Adepticon. It’s been a couple years since I’ve been to that show. Should be interesting.
But that’s as may be. At the moment, it’s time to nosh on some bite-sized stories.
Today we have: S.T.A.R. Trooper Miniatures Launched, True Messiah Teaser Video Posted, Jobstacles Funds With 2 Weeks Left On Kickstarter, DeepWars – Blood Reef Reaches Funding Goal, Final Sculpt for Shattered Earth’s Aurora Unveiled, and Blitzkrieg 222 Assault Vehicle Now Available From Kromlech.
Dangit! … The world’s been destroyed! Again! Who lets this keep happening? Well, I guess we better make the best of it. … Uh… did anyone else notice that thing over there that looks like it has huge wings and its eyes are on 4′ long stalks? I feel we should discuss this new occurrence and create a strategy on how to deal with it. Probably with power swords. All in favor of power swords? Great. Let’s go.
Shattered Earth: Emergence is a new post-apocalyptic sci-fi skirmish game set on a future Earth ravaged by natural disasters and torn apart by the opening of an interdimensional portal. They’re also up on Kickstarter looking for funding.
Taking a break from the RPG Kickstarters for a minute.
Is the week going by quickly for anyone else? On my ride in to work today, I looked down at my dashboard and saw my odometer and, for a moment, went, “why is that so high? It’s only Tues… oh… wait… it’s Wednesday. Ok, that makes sense.”
But seeing as it is Wednesday and all, we should have ourselves a Midweek Snippets.
Man, this is also the first Wednesday in a couple weeks where I don’t have tomorrow off. Makes me a little sad, but I’ll get through it, somehow.
Anyway, today’s batch of bite-sized stories includes: Skirmisher Publishing Releases 100 Oddities for a Wizard’s Tower, New Year’s Sale Happening Over at Advanced Deployment, Pulposaurus Entertainment Updates About the future of Conan: Rise of Monsters, New Praetorian Helmeted Heads From Puppets War, Chemical Spill: the Chemistry Card game: two weeks left on Kickstarter, Massive Awesome Announces Launch Date For Shattered Earth Kickstarter, Purgatory Posts New Previews, New Year’s Sale From Dark Art Miniatures, Iron Cross Miniatures Posts New Fireteam Release, New Dwarf King from Scibor, Too Fat Lardies Christmas Special, BattleGateGames Releases New Bust, New Battlefields XP Tufts From The Army Painter, ArmiesArmy 15mm Cold War Kickstarter is Live, New Paint Storage Systems from Burn In Designs, New Lower Pricing on Legends of Kalidasia Starter Sets, New Releases Available From Hinterland Miniatures, “Shieldwolf vs Orcs” launches on Kickstarter Tuesday 12th January, and Chicago Shootout reaches 50% funded on Kickstarter.
The week is continuing along at a fairly standard rate. However, it seems today really put on the accelerator and we’re going full-tilt through the day. It’s already time for the Midweek Snippets post (which is also midway through our broadcast day here, if you’ve never noticed before). Which means I’m halfway through my day as well. Good times.
Anyway, today’s batch of bite-size stories includes: RONE Passes Funding Goal – Posts Gameplay Video, Blackwater Gulch: Savage Beasts Available Now, Xenoshyft Dreadmire Expansion Teased, Buy the Rights Receives the ‘Major Fun Award’, 29K Stretch Goal Unlocked in Kensei Undead Kickstarter, Massive Awesome Reveals The Hulking Kodiak Tactical Heavy Frame For Shattered Earth, Legends of British Steampunk: Roleplay & Wargames Miniatures On Kickstarter, Tabletop-Art Previews Rockabilly Heads, New Warthrone approved army list: Lizardmen from Warhammer, Kromlech New Release – Legionary Chain Swords,
The week continues on. How many of you are still working on Thanksgiving leftovers? Tonight will be the last of the sliced turkey and sweet potatoes for me. I do, however, still have many servings of soup left. Most of it went into the freezer for later. It’s all good, but I’m reaching my limit on wanting to have it again for a while.
However, this weekend I’m going to be making fruitcake. 😀
For other tasty bites, we’ve got our midweek snippets.
Today’s stories include: Major 1p40k/KT Update, Rogue Planet | House Rules and Scenario Generator added, Horcmany Eve – A Flintloque Adventure from a Time before Blackpowder, FREE Interactive Solo Adventure PDF – The Cave & the Treasure, Eternity Dice Regular and Charms Edition on Kickstarter, RONE Card Game Approaches Funding Goal, Massive Awesome Unveil The Biomancer For Shattered Earth, Tail Feathers Downloadable Scenarios Now Available, Viera Sci-Fi Mini Now Available From RN Estudio, New Wolsung SSG releases, and Nexus Miniatures Posts Progress Update.
Or is it Friday Snippets, because I have the day off tomorrow? (and hopefully you do, too) Either way, it’s some bite-sized stories before we have lots more bites tomorrow for Thanksgiving.
And yes, I really am as jazzed about the holiday as it seems.

Hello there, Wednesday. How are you? I see you’ve brought the Guns ‘N’ Roses weather back with you. And while I know I’m in the minority here in Atlanta when I say, “woo! Rain!” I don’t care. I enjoy it. So there.
Along with the rain, Wednesday brings us our Midweek Snippets post, where we bring you some bite-sized stories that we’ve found over the past couple days.

Seismic activity is on the rise around the US, particularly in the midwest. So, what if that wasn’t so much man-made (as it seems to be, though I don’t really want this to turn into a political debate), as it was the harbinger of something much worse? What if, 50 years from now, there were massive earthquakes, humongous volcano eruptions, and other horrific events that basically remade all the continents? Amid all the chaos, what if a new energy source was discovered in the form of Ether? Well, that’s the story behind Shattered Earth, a new miniatures game coming from Massive Awesome.
