Midweek Snippets

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.

TGN Saturday Edition: Review Roundup

I, as I mentioned in my post yesterday, am more-than-likely playing 2nd edition D&D when this will be posted to the site.
Some friends I know have a long-running campaign and the DM is writing me in as an occasionally-recurring NPC. Not sure what my character will be (at time of typing), but it should be a good time.

Anyway, that’s as may be. Right now, it’s time for some game reviews.

In this batch, we have reviews/previews of: Boss Monster 2, Dark City 30 Corner Apartment Building and Gargoyles, Golem Arcana, The Great War, Apotheca, Lord of the Rings board game, Hocus, Paradox, Kaleidoscope, Infinity, Penny Press, Argonauts, Argent: The Consortium, and Star Wars Armada.
