Midweek Snippets

This week just seems to be screaming by. At least, I feel it is. I’m hoping yours is going by well-enough. I feel it’s mostly because it’s been rather busy over on this side of the screen. Various proofing projects have been passing over my desk. What can I say? I enjoy editing.

Anyway, if I’m going to make it through the rest of the week, I need to power-up on bite-sized gaming stories.

On today’s platter we have: Cold Steel Wardens: Rogues Gallery Kickstarter on Final Day, Microworld Games Releases 6mm Space Rats and Space Ogres, NonsenseMiniatures Releases Ajax, War Co. Kickstarter Already Funded and 2 Weeks to Go, New Viking Banner Bearer From Brother Vinni, Carrotia Funded With 12 Days Left on Kickstarter, Nexus Miniatures Previews Demogorgon, Tabletop-Art Previews Viking Raid cavalry bases, MidKnight Heroes Super Chibi Round 2 Kickstarter launched, Deadlands Double-Shot Kickstarters Coming Soon, and Final Hours for Lords of Rock on Kickstarter.
