Friday Snippets

Hey everyone. As you read this, I’m having a blast here at the CMON Expo. I know I’m going to sound biased, but this really is one of my favorite shows of the year since it’s so calm, cool, and relaxed compared to something like Adepticon or Gen Con. You can just hang out and play games, literally with some of the games’ designers and artists, and just chill. And, being a polar bear, I’m all about chill. But, it’s still a show and that means work. So I need to keep my energy up. So I’d best take a midday break and nosh on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Brigade Games Running Disposable Heroes WWII Minis Kickstarter, The Colorado Standard Poker & Tarot Deck Up On Kickstarter, Statuesque Heroic Scale Female Heads Narrow 2 and Bald Now Available, New Releases Available from RAFM, Nonstop70 Releases New Historical Paper Minis, New Zebras Available From Acheson Creations, and Rude Rats Fantasy Miniatures Up On Kickstarter.

From the campaign:

RAFM Miniatures has been producing Space: 1889 Miniatures since the game’s inception in 1988. The line has met with critical success but needs to undergo major improvement to bring it up to current standards.

Chris and his brother Robert have kindly supported us over the years with great paint work on our ranges and we readily agreed to add his brother to our Modern Day Heroes line. We hope that it is a good likeness and a fitting memorial for a fellow gamer, painter and brother.
