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.
MidKnight Heroes has launched a Kickstarter campaign for their first game. It’s Super Chibi A.C.E. and it recaptures the look and feel of old-school fighting games, but on your tabletop. If you’re a fan of arcade-style fighters, and chibi minis, of course, you’ll want to check it out.
We’ve arrived, beautiful readers. Friday is here and we’re making our way through it to the weekend. It won’t be long now and there’ll be a couple great days of just hanging out and maybe doing some gaming. I’m happy because my friend came back from LVO and brought me the new Season 3 cards and a couple players for Guild Ball. So I’ll be assembling Granite and Veteran Siren either tonight or tomorrow, with them hopefully seeing the pitch soon. Best to make sure I’m well-fed on some bite-sized gaming stories.
Today on the platter we have: AEG Announces Thunderstone Quest Coming To Kickstarter, Sacred Sword Chibi Minis Up On Kickstarter, Nuclear Shrimp Posts Black Earth Indiegogo Preview, Tabletop-Art Releases Ancestral Ruins banderoles and symbols, Apocalyptic Upgrades Sci-Fi Minis Up On Kickstarter, Chronicles: The Game Coming To Kickstarter Later This Year, MidKnight Heroes Super Chibi Round 2 – Reboot Pledge Manager Now Open, Trollkins Minis Up On Indiegogo, 28mm Greek/Macedonian Figures Up On Kickstarter, Simeon and His Buffalo Available From Golem Miniatures, and Soviet Passenger Trays Available From Dark Art Miniatures.
How’s everyone doing today? Ready for the weekend? I think I’m gonna keep mine rather chill, just putting together the last of my friend’s Guild Ball stuff. They’re already assembled. They just need greenstuff work done on ’em (filling in some small gaps, filling in the base slots, stuff like that). Other than that… not much. Plan for Thanksgiving, I guess.
But as for right now, it’s time to nosh on some bite-sized gaming stories.
Today we have: New D&D Icons of the Realms Miniatures Starter Set Now Available, Steamforged Previews Steamcon/Black Friday Sale, Confrontation Evolution Fan-Made Rules Posted, Wamp releases Master of Roots Bust, Ever wonder what Kriegsspiel Dice looked like?, Super Chibi Round 2 – Reboot Late Pledges now open, Final Days for Portable Paint Station On Kickstarter, New Numidian Infantry Available From Victrix, Spot It! Dobble Coming Next Year, New Releases Available From Hitech Miniatures, German Language Version of Thunderbirds Board Game Up On Spiele-Offensive, and Kromlech New Release: Human Skulls.
I don’t know about you, but my week has been busy. Lots of news. Lots of proofing projects. Lots of e-mails to reply to about a myriad of things. And tonight’s going to be busy, too. Friend’s birthday party tomorrow, so I’ll be doing some baking to take to the party. Pumpkin snickerdoodles, to be specific. I’m going to make them a lot smaller than my usual cookies I make, then make a cream cheese filling and basically make them Oreos with it. It’s the first pumpkin-flavored thing I’m making this year.
Speaking of bite-size morsels of joy, we’ve got our regular assortment of stories for you.
On the platter today we have: Kromlech New Release: Legionary Heavy Thunder Gun, Trapdoor Bringing Playbook Digital RPG Companion to Android, Mage Company launches new website for Dungeonland, Smart Device App Dized Being Soft-Launched October 2016, The Board Game Show Interviews The Donner Party Game Designer Greg Porter, New Lamia Available From Brother Vinni, Super Chibi Round 2 – Reboot Funded, Three New Mechs Available From Raging Heroes, Kromlech Weekend Promo: Orc Mech-Boss, and New Releases Available From Scotia Grendel.
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.
It’s been a scorcher so far this week in the US. Certainly has been here in Atlanta, at least. That heat’s made it rough to go outside for anything. Seems like a good time to stay inside and do some gaming. Or at least get set for some gaming this weekend. But if we’re going to make it through the heat and the week, we need to hydrate, as well as chow down on some bite-sized gaming stories.
On the platter today we have: Ainsty Castings Summer Sale and New Hammers Slammers 15mm, MidKnight Heroes Online store opening sale and Super Chibi round 2 Kickstarter, Silverclutch Games Launches Beneath Nexus Kickstarter Next Week, The Warriors: Turf Wars Kickstarter Launches On the 29th, Son of a Blank Party Card Game Contest Happening Now, Hero Master RPG-Inspired Greeting Cards Up On Kickstarter, and A.E.G.I.S. Coming To Kickstarter Soon.
So, as I was in a car for just slightly more than 1/2 of yesterday, I didn’t get much of a chance to post up the Midweek Snippets post. As such, I’m rolling it in with today’s Terrain Corner, as I have a bit of time right now to do so (and to give you a “peek behind the curtain,” I’m actually typing this late at night here on Wednesday).
Anyway, in this Terrain Corner/Snippets post we have: Gaddis Gaming Launches 28mm WWII Miniatures Kickstarter, Turn One Gaming Supplies Releases 8-Bit Dice, Donnybrook skirmish game rulebook now available, Post Apocalyptic Dwarf Bikers Up On Kickstarter, Round-Lip Space Dungeon Bases Available From Tabletop-Art, Heroic Maps – Giant Maps: The Great Labyrinth Now Available, MidKnight Heroes Super Chibi Finial sculpts are in and late pledge extended, Crossover Miniatures Releases Frederick Class Airship, Meka Desert: Pwork Wargames science fiction gaming mat, Gamelyn responds to backers with only 3 days left, and Battle Valor Games 15mm Fantasy New Releases.
And we’re walking.
And we’re walking.
And we’re walking.
We’re making our way through the week.
It’s Wednesday and it’s time for some bite-sized gaming stories.
Today we have: Mekawing Z 1.9.5 released in English, Selina Special offer By Battlegate Games, MidKnight Heroes opens up back end pledges for the Super Chibi Kickstarter, The Argyle Frigate Miniature is now Available for Legends of Kalidasia, Raging Heroes Releases Nepharya (NecroPriestess), Tabletop-Art Previews Space Dungeon Round-Lip Bases, Counterblast – free Beta Rules Posted, Heroic Scale Female Heads 2 available to Pre-Order now From Statuesque Miniatures, Bad Squiddo’s Women of the Red Army go on Pre-order, and Final Week for Twisted Kickstarter.
Well, it seems like it took about 5 weeks to get here, but Friday is finally upon us. It felt like it took 5 weeks to me, anyway. Hopefully your week went by a lot more quickly, as postponing the weekend any more than it already is at the start of the week seems like torture.
Anyway, let’s get you some bite-sized stories to tide you over until that sweet weekend does make its way here.
Today we’ve got: Cold War Army Lists Released for Sabresquadron, Kromlech new release – Putrid Snail Beast, MidKnight Heroes Super Chibi Kickstarter Funded, New 15mm SF Polish Half-Tracks From Brigade Models, and Pyrkol Launches the M.O.A.T. Flame Template.
Time ever-marches onward! Well… as far as we know, anyway. I guess time could stop for a while and if we were stopped along with it, we’d never really know it’d happened. Unless you were some sort of 4th dimensional being like in Slaughterhouse Five or something, we’d never realize it.
Ok, well, this took a really quick turn to the metaphysical. Not really intended, but there we are, then. Let’s just move on to today’s heaping helping of bite-sized stories before I begin to discuss other laws of physics of which I have a tenuous knowledge grasp on, at best.
In this installment we have: Metal King Studio Posts Thief Episode 1- Concept Art, Model Dads’ Ost-Front 15mm Decals Out Now, Heroines in Sensible Shoes female dungeoneer minis Kickstarter, Khurasan releases Vespulid Queen, MidKnight Heroes Super Chibi Miniature Line Kickstarter now Live, Kickstarter First Look: Granny Grating Armies, Kromlech new release – Morbid Beast Araneaeman, Khurasan releases 28mm scale “Los Viejos”, Lands of Ruin Kickstarter launch is set to 19th of February, and Circle of Chaos: Oldhammer metal miniatures for your warband On Kickstarter.
I hope your weekend is going well (or has gone well if you are much further East than where I am currently). Mine’s been full of some older movies that were watched just for the hell of it (such as Beavis and Butt-Head Do America, again, because just for the hell of it).
And now it’s Sunday, so that means a day of housework for me. It also means a collection of bite-sized stories for you.
In this batch we have: New Hansom Tank for Empire of the Dead, Midknight Heroes Interview on CPOP, Advanced Deployment Debuts New Acrylic Color and Free Tokens, and Secrets of the Lost Tomb: The Elite Missions Kickstarter Launching in 9 Days.
Give yourself a pat on the back. You’ve made it to another Wednesday. We’re halfway to the weekend. If you have any mid-week gaming plans, we’d love to hear about it down in the comments. Over the next couple days, I’ll be prepping for the D&D game I’m running on Saturday. Last session, the group narrowly avoided TPK twice. So obviously, I need to up my game some.
As usual for the day, we’ve got some bite-sized stories we’ve collected together for you.

MidKnight Heroes has regrouped, reconfigured, re-evaluated, recombobulated, and have relaunched on Kickstarter for their Season 0. This new campaign is looking to fund the first of their sci-fi minis, Leonide Fai Barbarian Chieftain of the Kaioe Clan. They’re already about 50% of the way there. After they get him made, the first stretch goal is to get Elvia and B.E.E.M. put into production.
Happy Wednesday, everyone! I hope the week has been treating you well. I’ve… actually been sick this week. Don’t worry, I’ve made sure to disinfect every post just before it goes up, so you shouldn’t catch anything.
Anyway, we’ve collected the various bite-sized stories that we’ve come across recently and present them to you now.

While just miniatures for this campaign, MidKnight Heroes is looking to release a skirmish game uses these figures. The game promises to be innovative and bring several different forms of gaming into one system.
The campaign is set to run for the next 34 days.
From the campaign: Continue reading
