Y.F.T. Design Studio is a new company that has the feel of an old company. Why does it have that feel? Because it’s the new stage for the people from Nexus Miniatures. They’re open for business now, including all of Nexus Miniatures’ old lines (since Nexus is a part of Y.F.T. now), but have a lot of new things on the horizon as well.
Seems just about everything is going on this weekend. PAX, Nova Open, and Dragon*Con are all happening… well, right now, actually. If you’re at one of the shows, awesome. I hope you’re having a blast. If you’re not, well, at least we still have Friday going for us, which is nice. Either way, we should fuel up on some bite-sized gaming stories.
Today we have: New Secutarii Hoplite and Peltast Upgrade Kits From Forge World, New Legionary Breacher Bike From Kromlech, The Painting Frog Posts Rumble in the Jungle 2 – The Aftermath, Rebel Minis Dark Hold Goblin Adventures RPG Funded, War Titans: Invaders Must Die Coming To Kickstarter, Battle Gnomes Card Game Coming To Kickstarter, FossilPunk Foundry Unveils Sauriana 54mm Miniatures Game, The Red Sector Cleanup Crew Available To Order From Nexus Miniatures, and Purgatory Box Cover is released.
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.
Well, this week started off well, hit some rocky points near the middle, but it seems like it’s going to end alright. One friend got some good news, and at least things have smoothed out a bit for the rest. Me? I’m just looking to maybe get some gaming in over the next couple days and possibly make some Italian Beef sammiches. But before that’s done, we need to nosh on some bite-sized gaming stories.
On the platter today we have: Nexus Miniatures Retro-Booster Promotion Happening Now, ZynVaded! EVO Fully Funded, Ice Kingdoms Kickstarter Enters Final Days, and Kromlech New Release: Junk City Resin Bases.
We continue to move forward, not backward, upward, not forward, and always whirling, whirling, twirling towards the weekend. We might also be dizzy now…
Anyway, we have made it halfway through the week. And someone brought a giant bag stuffed with candy and put it in the break room here. So, while I can’t give you a “fun-size” Kit-Kat through the screen (I tried, but then I has to go clean my monitor), I can give you some bite-size gaming stories.
So, for today we have: H.E.A.D. Hunters Coming to Kickstarter This Fall, Unity: A Brand New Indie RPG on the Horizon, New Fire Forge themed bases Available From Dark Art Miniatures, Pipmen Playing Cards (Relaunch) On Kickstarter, Rockabilly Heads Now Available From Tabletop-Art, Golem Miniatures shop is online, New Multi-Mini Deal From Nexus Miniatures, North Star Military Figures Takes Over Day-to-Day Activities of Copplestone Castings, Winter War: Free Combat Patrol supplement for 1939 Russo-Finnish War From Sally 4th, New Stygian Torsos Available From Bits of War, Lands of Ruin Kickstarter reaches the funding goal, and Final Day for Battle Arena Show On Kickstarter.
Well… that was a bit of an adventure.
For those interested in keeping track, Monday I noticed my car had a coolant leak. Tuesday I took it into the shop. They originally said, “it’ll just be a couple hours.” Then they said, “it’ll be overnight (they needed a part).” So, seeing as I was clear on the other side of town, I crashed at a friend’s place (as a 50mi walk home didn’t sound fun), picked up my car this morning, and am now back into the office. Hooray!
You know what I could use? A snack. Or at least some snack-sized gaming stories.
Hey! Look what we’ve got here!
In today’s Snippets we have: Collins Epic Wargames introduces Milestone Rewards for Polyversal, Cast Metal Gaming Dice on Kickstarter, FatMan Productions Posts New Previews For Awakening Recon, Frostgrave Fan Base Launched, Blacksmith Miniatures release: the apothecary, Photos from Nuremberg Spielwarenmesse 2016, Malifaux translated to Italian, The Circle of Chaos Kickstarter Going On Now, Shipping Update from Nexus Miniatures, Titan-Forge releases new Void Cannon, Last Couple of Days for Era: The Consortium Kickstarter, and Coming on 13th Feb – Era: Lyres Pocket Edition – a £1 Tabletop RPG.
This first full week of the new year went by really fast for me. Did it go by fast for you? Though I’m sitting here in my Friday shirt, I was still a bit surprised when I looked and saw, “Oh, hey, it’s time to schedule up Friday Snippets. … I thought it was, like, Tuesday or something.”
But Friday it is. (Woot! Woot!) So Snippets it shall be.
Today’s bite-sized stories include: The Broken Token Releases Zombicide Organization Sets, Kalmbach expands reach with acquisition of Rather Dashing Games, Nexus Miniatures Posts News Updates, Kromlech Releases Morbid Beast “Chimney”, Kabuki Models Taking Pre-Orders For Second Wave of Star Vixen, Meeple Source Kickstarter Happening Now, Techno Bowl Helmet + Team Preview #1, and Thundercloud Miniatures webstore reopens.
The good people over at Nexus Miniatures are going to be giving themselves a little break for the holiday season. As such, they’re not going to be processing new orders starting today and lasting until the 11th of January. However, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t order from them, because you’ll get some special things and be helping a good cause.
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.
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.
And so we start winding down this long, holiday weekend. Soon it’ll be back to the office. But we’ll always have the memories of another Thanksgiving. I hope you had a chance to go and spend some time with friends and loved ones, hopefully playing a game or two in there.
Anyway, as for today, we’ve got some bite-sized stories for you as you bite on leftover turkey sandwiches or (in my case) gallons of turkey soup.
Today’s stories include: This War of Mine Tabletop Game Announced, Luma Dice On Kickstarter Now, Brother Vinni’s Dungeon Sisters Indiegogo Passes Funding Goal, Ratgard Releases Vampyrum surface-to-air missile system, and The A.S.P. Troopers are Coming From Nexus Miniatures.
Hello everyone and welcome to Sunday. It’s the start of my favorite week. Thanksgiving is coming up and I simply can’t wait. Sure, you may have your favorite holiday as Halloween or Christmas or Australia Day or whatever, and those are certainly all fine holidays. For me? It’s Thanksgiving. I only wish I had access to a professional kitchen.
But anyway, that’s Thursday. Currently, it’s Sunday. That means a few bite-sized stories to bring to you.
Today’s batch includes: 28mm Fantasy Rock Army On Indiegogo, Khurasan releases 22nd Century Range, Nexus Miniatures Prize Draw Happening Now, Custom Handmade Dice Bags Up On Etsy, and Geek Fever’s Black Friday Crowd Sale is LIVE.
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.
In this batch we have: Tor Gaming Announces The C’thu Kickstarter, We’re All Mad Here NPC Contest from Wizard of the Coast, Fistful of Lead: Reloaded fully backed on Kickstarter, Tin Man 35% Off Sale Ends Sunday Night, Shieldwolf Miniatures releases new Goblins, New Sci Fi Dwarves from Scibor, Oddzial Osmy’s 3mm and 15mm October Releases Arrive at PicoArmor, The Seraphis Institute – The Third Army Deal From Nexus Miniatures, Vasseth Strike Tank and Reaction Force released by Loud Ninja Games, New Shaleground 30mm and 40mm RL Deals From Tabletop-Art, Crusaders of the Faith Revealed for Shattered Earth’s Children of the One True God Faction, Medieval Mayhem Coming This December, New Cavalry Models From Brigade Models, and Just Four Days left on the Interface Zero kickstarter for Fate.
It’s hard to run a business if you can’t get your product to your customers. Getting yourself a solid webshop is a pretty important thing to make sure people can find and buy what they want. Well, Nexus Miniatures is doing just that, as they’ve opened up a new webstore. They’re also having a special give-away for some of the first orders to be made with it.
