Midweek Snippets

We’re reaching the peak. After this, it’s a slide back down to the weekend. I’m hoping to have some friends over for gaming and cooking, as well as basically a “mini-Halloween” party (my apartment’s not really that big. Hard to have more than 4-5 people over 😛 ). There will be Cryx Necrotite Sugar Cookies, Atomic Peanut Butter Balls, and a bubbling cauldron of gumbo.
But that’s as may be. Right now, we’ve got a bunch of bite-size gaming stories to give you.

On the platter today we have: Zucati Dice: Retro Classic Pure Aluminum Dice On Kickstarter, Totentanz Miniatures to Make Corvus Belli’s 15mm Historical Miniatures Range, Purgatory Shows off 2 freshly completed models for the Kickstarter, New Swan Faction Tokens from Advanced Deployment Now Available, Ramshackle Abomination and Robot Sale, Armorcast LLC announces the Fifth Cinematic Effects Modeling Contest, Last Days To Enter Tercio Creativo’s Wipley Drawing, New Releases Available From Micro Art Studio, Ouroboros Miniatures’ First Release Now Available, 5-Minute Dungeon Coming to Kickstarter Next Week, and Era: The Consortium – A Universe of Expansions Kickstarter in the last week.

Thursday Terrain Corner

As we roll along, the weekend grows ever-closer. As I mentioned, I’ve got a full day of gaming scheduled for Saturday. That’ll include some games that use various bits of terrain on a game mat. You want your games to look good, right? I know I do. So let’s see what we can do to make your games look good.

In our Terrain Corner today we have: Deep-Cut Studio releases dedicated game mat for Roots of Magic, New Terrain Pieces Available From Micro Art Studio, and Badlands: Pwork Wargames Fantasy Gaming Mat Now Available.

New Releases Available For Wolsung Steampunk Skirmish Game

Steam. It’s one of the most important resources on the planet for human civilization. Just think of all the things its done for us (and continues to do, considering anything that runs on nuclear power technically runs on steam). It’s even created some great miniatures games! Well, it’s been the basis for miniatures games, anyway. Wolsung Steampunk Skirmish Game from Micro Art Studios is one of those, and they’ve got some new releases available.

New Wolsung Releases Available From Micro Art Studio

We seem to be in a year of new editions. Nothing wrong with that, mind you. We recently got a new edition of the Wolsung Steampunk Skirmish Game from Micro Art Studio. Now they’ve got a new batch of figures available over in their webshop to go along with it.

Wolsung Steampunk Skirmish Game Second Edition Available Now

It’s nearly impossible to hit perfection the first time you do something. Sure, it sometimes happens, but for the vast majority of the time, you get pretty close, but you still need to work at it. Well, the folks over at Micro Art Studio didn’t quite feel they hit perfection with their first version of Wolsung, the Steampunk skirmish game, and so they’ve revised it and come out with another.

Thursday Terrain Corner

The week rolls along, picking up speed as we head down from Wednesday’s “hump day” through Thursday. It’s been a busy one around here. Lots of stuff going on for the conventions coming up (some next week, some at the end of the month). Lots of prep work to be done between now and then. Hopefully with some gaming in there somewhere. I’ve got a hobby project I’m going to be working on this weekend. What do you guys have planned?

Today, of course, we have another Terrain Corner feature.

In this installment, we have: Terminus Segments Kickstarter Final Days, Manorhouse Workshop Update #16 – Let’s make the 3D Bases suffer a bit, Battlemap Layers passed 80% Funding with 15 Days to Go, Lands of Mars: Pwork Wargames science fiction gaming mat now available, and Lots of new temple models from Infinity-Engine.

Monday Terrain Corner

Well, we’re back once more to Monday. The weekend is gone and we can only bask in the memories. I hope yours was good. Mine was certainly productive. Got a lot of stuff done around the apartment, as well as putting together all those Guild Ball models. But that’s all done. Now it’s back in the office. But it’s alright, there will be another weekend. In the meantime, we gotta make sure our gaming tables look the best.

Today’s Terrain Corner articles include: New Mid February Armorcast Terrain Products, Micro Art Studios Infinity Terminus Segments Up On Kickstarter, Pwork Wargames releases fantasy gaming mat: Arid Plain, and New Releases Available from Eslo Terrain.

Friday Snippets

It’s time once again for Friday. Now, normally, the week after a “short week” (such as last week) feels like they take forever. At least, to me they do. That’s why if given my druthers, I’d have a Monday off rather than a Friday. You get a long weekend and then a short week, as opposed to a short week, long weekend, then a regular week. But that’s me. Anyway, I’m happy to say that this week feels like it’s just flown by. Here we are already ready for a weekend. And baking fruitcake will be my reward.

But before we can get there, we have some business to attend to, such as a group of bite-sized stories we’ve collected over the past couple days. What sort of stories?

Ones like these: New Releases Available for Wolsung SSG from Micro Art Studio, Khurasan pre-release deal for 15mm late Cold War armour, Shark Day Miniature Available From Wonderlands Project, Krampus for Kaiju Kaos: The Miniatures Game Released, New releases for By Fire and Sword, Coming Soon – The Prometheans from Nexus Miniatures, Kromlech Legionary Thunder Gun with under-barrel Plasma Gun Now Available, Slavic Fantasy Miniatures Kickstarter by Deraj Studios has Launched, WH40k: Tactical Objectives App Release Date Announced, Post Captain Squadron Action Scenarios Posted, Bombshell Babes 2 on Preorder from Bombshell Miniatures, and Alexander Nevsky ready for Forgestarter campaign.

Thursday Terrain Corner

To think that just a week ago, at this point I was just hanging out, playing some Ascension, thinking about getting that first turkey in the oven. Sorry if it seems I keep going on and on about it, but it really was a great Thanksgiving, and it is my favorite holiday of the entire year. This year’s proved why. Good friends. Good gaming. Good food. Lots to be thankful for. That includes, of course, good terrain.
Because transitions!

Anyway, in today’s terrain corner we have: Heroic Maps Modular Kit: Town Shops 1 & 2 released, New Infinity Warehouse Table Set available from Micro Art Studio, and Flexible 15mm River & Road system Released by Novus Design Studio.

Midweek Snippets

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.

Hey everyone!
You know that lately we’ve been starting to try and group various like-type stories together. We’ve got our Podcast Post we make on Tuesdays and our Review Roundup on Saturdays. Well, we’ve looked it over and decided that Terrain would be a good story type to bundle all together in one place as well.

In this inaugural batch we have: New Industrial Battlefield and English Timber Framed Buildings from Warlord Games and Sarissa Precision, MicroClad Metropolis released by Fantasy Arc, Deep-Cut Studio releases gaming mats for aerial combats, Manorhouse Workshop Kickstarter Halfway There Goal Unlocked, and New Nebula 36×36 inch battle mat from Micro Art Studio.

New Wolsung shipping info

Micro Art Studio is showing off a new paint job on some of their Wolsung minis, but more importantly they’re letting us know how things are going with their Kickstarter shipping.

Source

From the update:

” a large batch of minis is here. Most of the HDF terrain is already cut. Additional models are being sent to Griffin as we speak. All the text to the new Rulebook is prepared. We’re working on layout and graphics.
It is very probable that we won’t be able to send some items to US and Australia early enough to reach you before the end of December. As we want to give you some Xmas presents we decided to set a deadline for the large shipment around the end of November. This package will contain all the HDF terrain, new rulebook and all the models we have available up to the date. This will go as one package to US/Australia and will then be distributed. If there is anything missing [most probably these will be just miniatures] it will be sent directly to you as soon as we have them. So all in all – most supporters from these regions will receive 2 packages from us. When it comes to European supporters – the packages will be sent directly as we wrote earlier.”

Wolsung Forum ready, new Sculpts, Graphics, more details about Essen Spiel pickups

Micro Art Studio has updated their Wolsung post-Kickstarter progress with new forums, some sculpts, and more.

From the post:

First of all we are happy to announce that we managed to transfer our old forum to the new one. Some of the topics did not transfer but it should be no problem. We also solved the “captcha” problem that occurred on the beginning.
If you register and write first post don’t be surprised if your new topic will be not visible. We need to check the first message manually and accept it first 🙂 (addtional spam filter 😉

CoolMiniOrNot Base System Final Hours on Kickstarter

CoolMiniOrNot and Micro Art Studio have just until this evening on their Kickstarter campaign for their new base inserts.

From the campaign:

CoolMiniOrNot and Micro Art Studios are excited to introduce the next generation of miniature bases!

Most decorative bases are designed as one piece, with terrain molded on top of a beveled game base. The CoolMiniOrNot system is actually two pieces. The first piece is a highly detailed terrain insert. The second piece is a black satin base, with a recessed center that holds the insert. This two part system creates a cohesive and beautiful base for your miniatures.

Another stretch goal down, another put up to go

CoolMiniOrNot has made it up and over another stretch goal hurdle in their Base System Kickstarter campaign with Micro Art Studio.

Source

From the campaign:

Backers! We just hit $65,000, and as mentioned yesterday, we have a new goal for you:

This design was personally picked by Miss Jen Haley as our next unlock. Mr. Black has given us the go a head to begin unlocking stretches at the $5,000 mark as well, so let’s take a look at the $70,000 goal.

We’re quickly moving toward our last few days, backers. How high can we go? What mysteries can we unlock??

Surprise unlock for CoolMiniOrNot Base System

CoolMiniOrNot and Micro Art Studio have a surprise unlock in their Base System Kickstarter campaign. They’ve unlocked new styles for their backers.

From the update:

Backers! Mr. Black here, and we’re in the middle of what is known as Campaign Lull… The time during the middle (but not quite the end) of a campaign when things just seem to die down, which usually leads to a loss of momentum…

… And it’s something I truly hate.

Well, we here at CMoN have decided to really give you guys a big push in the last days here, basically as sort of a rally for anyone on the fence about joining us.

What is this push, you ask anxiously?

Let me show you.
