It’s halfway over. The work week is about half-done for most of us. With any luck, you’re looking forward to a weekend of gaming. I might be doing some of that. But I can guarantee that I’ll be doing some baking. Actually, that’ll start tomorrow. We’re having a chili and dessert cook-off here at the office on Friday. Then, over the weekend, I need to “pay for” a custom game mat design a friend did by baking him some of his favorite treats and sending them off. Hey, the barter system is alive and well among my friends. You do some graphic design for me and I’ll bake cookies and brownies for you. But before we get to those bite-size treats, let’s nosh on some bite-size gaming stories.
Today on the platter we have: Final Days for Cult of Barnacle Bay on Kickstarter, MASK FX Camouflage tape is back, 17 New Releases Available From Dark Sword Miniatures, New Void Elves Available From Raging Heroes, New Orc Mechanic Available From Kromlech, and Voting For Round 1 of Iron Painter Happening Now.
And here we are again. Friday: threshold to the weekend. I’m sure many of you are gearing up for a weekend of gaming, possibly starting as early as when you get off of work. I’m looking to spend tomorrow at the LGS, hopefully getting in some games of Guild Ball and Bushido. But whatever your gaming vice might be, it’s best to top off with some bite-sized gaming stories before diving in.
Today on the platter we have: THEO – The Hobby Equipment Organizer Up On Kickstarter, New Sisters of Eternal Mercy Available From Raging Heroes, New Cobblestone Bases Available From Tabletop-Art, New Flocking/Basing System Available From Fontline Games, New 28mm Romanian 75mm Resita Anti-tank Gun M1943, Open Game Master Looking To Bring Drop-In D&D To The Masses, and It’s Bomber Month at PicoArmor.
This week is still rushing by. That’s not a complaint, mind you. This weekend I plan on helping a friend get settled into his new place. Of course, that means unpacking board games. And if a couple of those games just happen to get played before they get sorted onto the shelf, that’s just the sort of risk one takes in life. But before we get there, we need to make sure everyone’s gaming tables look as good as possible.
Today in the Terrain Corner we have: Terrain Sets Added to A Song of Ice and Fire Kickstarter, Dark London Gaming Mat Available From Pwork Wargame, and New Items Added to WarStages Kickstarter.
Man, most of yesterday, I felt like it was Thursday. This morning, I was thinking, “man, it’s Friday. Nice.” And then I realized that sad truth: the weekend was still another day away. Probably doesn’t help that I’ve not been feeling all that great the last day or so. So I’m hoping for the weekend to hopefully get over whatever I might be picking up. But that’s as may be. In the meantime, we need to get your gaming tables looking good. So, let’s get to it.
Today in the Terrain Corner we have: New 2D Terrain from Dicey Ventures Studios, Raging Heroes’ WarStages: The Gothic Cathedral Kickstarter Launches This Weekend, New District 5 Staircase and Holoads From Micro Art Studio, and Combat Plaza Game Mat Available From Pwork Wargame.
Friday is once again upon us. Gateway to the weekend. So many possibilities. I’m as busy as a one-armed paper hanger. Making all sorts of things in prep for tomorrow’s MST3K binge party. I hate to go to a gathering empty-handed, so I’m making brownies, cookies, and prepping stuff so I can make nachos and Swedish meatballs while there. Like I said, hate to be empty-handed. But while I’m making those bite-sized treats, let’s nosh on some bite-sized gaming stories.
Today on the platter we have: Two New Tank Turrets Available From Ramshackle Games, Tor Gaming Announces Their Affiliate Program, Circle of Blood from Last Bullet Games Coming To Kickstarter, Path of Light and Shadow Coming To Kickstarter, Final Days for Wreck Age Kickstarter, and Fluff Preview Posted For The Drowned Earth.
And we’ve made it, once again, to Friday. Woot!
The weekend lays ahead of us. If you’re lucky, you’ve got some gaming scheduled. That’s what I’ll be doing.
In the meantime, we’ve got our regular set of bite-sized gaming stories for you.
On the platter today we have: Sine Tempore Coming To Kickstarter, Devil’s Run RPG Coming To Kickstarter, Unit Reference Cards for Combat Patrol Napoleonic Skirmish Released, Raging Heroes Releases Toughest Girls of the Galaxy Heavy Weapons Teams, Board Game Beaver Interviews Anne Pätzke, Brother Vinni Releases Robotic Dog, Kromlech Weekend Promo Happening Now, and Dreamchaser: A Game of Destiny Coming To Kickstarter.
Woo! We’ve made it, everyone! At least for me, it was a nice, calm, “standard” week. As a creature of habit, I’m very grateful for that. Many of us here in the US are also getting a 3-day weekend, what with Martin Luther King Jr. Day being this upcoming Monday. So that’s cool. I hope you have some cool weekend activities planned and that today being Friday the 13th doesn’t mean anything bad for you. But as we go into the weekend, we should stock up on bite-sized gaming stories.
Today we have: New Ruler Designs From Kromlech, Cryptozoic Releases Mighty Meeples: DC Justice League Collection Tin, New Aufklarungs Passenger trays from Dark Art Miniatures, New Warbikes and Trikes from Raging Heroes, Rebel Minis Releases New 28mm Sci-Fi Packs, Cardstock Warriors Site is Live, Weekend Promo from Kromlech, and New Bases Available From Micro Art Studio.
I technically have the day off today. Why? Because CMON went public on the Hong Kong stock exchange and they’re giving us the day off to celebrate. But the news doesn’t stop just because the office is closed. Neither rain, nor sleet, nor snow, nor slush, shal keep me from giving you your news (ok, so maybe eating lots of food last week would keep me from doing it, but still…). Gonna be a bit shorter day today, but I still want to get you your bite-sized gaming stories. So let’s get to it.
On the platter today, we have: Ramshackle Games Releases the Boom Wagon, Gods & Goddesses 5th edition supplement coming to Kickstarter in February, Kromlech New Release: Vehicle Hull Points Markers, Raging Heroes Sale Extended Through This Weekend, Aether Captains: Action Cards Update, Liam Games distributes MAGE Company in Israel, and Czacha Games to publish Polish Raid and Trade in 2017.
I hope you had a good Thanksgiving (for those that celebrate) and a good Thursday and Friday (for those that don’t). I’ve had a great couple of days, taking time to have both Thanksgiving and Thanksgiving 2: Thank Harder. Also got in some good gaming. Ascension, Raise Your Goblets, Guild Ball. Good times. More Guild Ball today and maybe building a Gundam kit. But, obviously, even if I take a couple days off, the news doesn’t stop. There’s a lot more holiday sales going on. Here’s another group that’s going on this weekend.
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.
It’s going guys. The week is continuing on. We’ll make it. The weekend will be here as soon as it can.
In order to make sure we have plenty of strength, we should stock up on some bite-sized gaming stories.
Today we have: 5E RPG Condition Cards on Kickstarter, Polyversal Update- 300 backers, new stretch goal, new add-on, new video, Lairs Coming To Kickstarter Soon, New Orc Bust from NonSenseminiatures, A Few Weeks Left In Dark Art Studios Painting Contest, Frostgrave: Into the Breeding Pit Nickstarter Deals from Sally 4th, Raging Heroes Flesh Eaters Unveiled, Red Panda Miniatures Posts The Design Process For Roland, Warriors of the Apocalypse with great weapons preview, The Far East War 1592 Coming Soon To Kickstarter, Tanto Cuore International Crowdfunding Campaign launching June 14th, HOPE launch on Kickstarter Thursday at 12pm, Hitech Miniatures Releases Soothsayer Sybilla, Dungeon Monsters UPDATE #1 ( adding Zombie and Skeleton singles), and New Sons of Thor Legs From Kromlech.
Woo! Friday! Woo!
*runs around with arms over my head*
The Gateway to the Weekend is once more upon us. In just a couple hours, we’ll be enjoying a couple days off to do whatever we want (hopefully that involved gaming). We’d best make sure we’ve got enough strength. That can be gained by noshing on some bite-sized gaming stories.
Today we have: Viking Raid and Shaleground Flat Bases Now Available From Tabletop-Art, More busts released by Shieldwolf Miniatures, Raging Heroes introduces the Davidians sculpts, Happy Seppuku Texture Presale Happening Now, New Sci-Fi/Modern Minis From Rebel Minis, Barbaric Splendor Kickstarter One – Personalities is now live, RN Estudio Unlocking Stretch Goals In Revenants vs Ancestrals Indiegogo Campaign, and ThunderChild Miniatures Remasters and Releases Gnarly Pilgrims Minis.
The week continues on. We’ve made our way to Wednesday. Hopefully the first half of your week has been drama-free (unless you’re, like, a thespian or something). It’s that time to fuel up on some bite-sized gaming stories so we can get through the last half of the week and get back to the weekend.
Today we have for you: Assault Publishing Transparent Bases Now Available, Mitosis Miniatures Posting New Rat Rider Previews, Red Panda Miniatures Announces Kickstarter Launch Date, New Release Available from Klukva Miniatures, FAITH: A Garden in Hell Reaches Funding Goal, Last Week for Capitalism on Kickstarter, and Toughest Girls of the Galaxy “I Want Them All” Box #8 Now Available.
We once more stand on the precipice of the weekend. I hope you’ve got gaming stuff planned. I know I do. It’ll be a good time had by all. Lots of gaming, and then lots of reporting about said gaming back to you all.
But I’m still getting over being sick. I’m hoping I’m on “the last day” of this nonsense today. But just in case, I’m keeping up my “being sick” protocols. And I’m also going to need to fill up on some bite-sized gaming stories. Good thing that’s just what I’ve got here.
Today we have: Askari Miniatures Webstore Back Open, Hitech Miniatures Releases Battle Walker “Onslaught”, New Toughest Girls of the Galaxy Box Sets Available From Raging Heroes, Sally 4th Pulp Alley Character Cards released today, Oddzial Osmy’s 3mm and 15mm May Releases Arrive at PicoArmor, and Kromlech New Release: Legionary Heavy Flamers.
Well, I felt well-enough to head back into the office today. Though, I have to admit, I did have some incentive. But be that as it may, it’s time to power-up with some bite-sized gaming stories in our Midweek Snippets feature.
Today we have: Welcome to the Olde World … Miniatures Kickstarter, Purgatory Ramps up with stat card prototypes, Dark Sword Miniatures Posts 12 New Releases, Polyversal Miniatures Game nears funding goal, NonsenseMiniatures Releases Aquiles vs Hector Diorama, Uniform Guides for the War of the Grand Alliance 1690, Khurasan releases Testudo 15mm Generals and Dragoons, Zombie and Skeleton Fantasy Monsters series I On Kickstarter, Raging Heroes Releases Keela Krupps from Toughest Girls of the Galaxy, New Dwarf Lord on Mountain Ram from Scibor, Red Panda Miniatures Posts New Artwork and Kickstarter Update, and LOAD Kickstarter Launch date announced.
I’ve really been looking forward to this weekend. Not that the work week’s been bad, mind you. It’s actually gone by in a flash. No, I’m just ready for a full weekend of gaming (and article-writing, which is a direct result of the gaming). What sort of things do you have planned? Whatever it is, we’d best make sure you’ve got lots of energy, which can be gained from some bite-size gaming stories. We have just that for you here now.
Today there’s: Moose Added to Flint and Feather Kickstarter, Final Days for Ral Partha’s Kickstarter, New Jet Engines and Bases Available From Hitech Miniatures, New Pathfinder Soundpacks Available From Syrinscape, French & Indian War Canoes On Kickstarter, Khurasan releases support weapons for 15mm Modern US Army, Raging Heroes extends the Free Shipping Offer, and LOAD gives away some of their awesome hero miniatures.
We’re making our way through the week here at a steady pace. It’s already Wednesday. I hope it’s going smoothly for you. It’s been naturally busy the first couple days after the Expo. I’m mostly caught up. Just a couple things left.
But at the exact moment, it’s bringing you some bite-sized gaming stories to chew on.
Today we have: Siren Miniatures Posts New 3D Render, Gamer Badges Up On Kickstarter, Battle Valor Games 15mm Fantasy New Releases, 28mm Northern Raiders On Kickstarter, Symbaroum on Kickstarter June 2016, New Legionary Vibro Scythes From Kromlech, Warhammer 40k Tactical Objectives App 2.0 Update, Khurasan releases 15mm E-25 Jagdpanzer, Raging Heroes new TGG model available: Nertha, Dragon Head Coin Series Is Back on Kickstarter, Scotia New Releases – May 2016, and Kickstarter Video Posted for Hope board game.
When people ask me what I’m doing on Sunday, I generally say, “As little as possible.”
Granted, considering today has included making breakfast, doing dishes, doing laundry, prepping to cook what will be dinners this week, work on putting together models, and work on a review article, “as little as possible” actually include a lot of things.
It also includes bringing you some bite-sized gaming stories. So let’s get to it so I can get back to that giant list of things.
Today’s stories are: Victrix Previews Iberian Cavalry, New Release Available From Hitech Miniatures, Mounted German Schutztruppen Available From Askari Miniatures, Pledge Manager to Open Soon For Toughest Girls of the Galaxy II, and Voodooworx Miniatures Release Hul’Gren: The Collector.
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, winter is almost technically over. Just a couple weeks left. Here in Atlanta it’s already started to get rather nice outside. But that doesn’t mean we can’t focus on gaming. Raging Heroes is here to help with that with a sale going on right now in their webshop.
The fellows over at Raging Heroes are giving you a chance to win some of their minis over on their website. While the group is working on a set of rules for their figures, they know that a lot of people are intending to use them as stand-ins for minis from other games. What they’d like to know is what you plan on using them as stand-ins for (or what you think they would make good stand-ins for). But that’s not all.
For many people, Boxing Day (and the week associated with it) is just as much a holiday as Christmas. So in that tradition, Raging Heroes is having themselves a sale over in their webshop. You can get current models, and even some future releases, for a special price, but you’ve gotta hurry.
It’s cool to see companies that, when I started, were just very small, or some that didn’t even exist, grow into brands whose names have some very cool products to them. Such is the case with Raging Heroes, for example. And this year they’re having their first ever Black Friday sale.
Do you want to work in the gaming industry? Do you think you have what it takes to thrive in a rather competitive field? Do you like selling things? Can you do art well? Are you good at Social Media? If you answered “yes” to these questions, then Raging Heroes might just have a job for you, as they are looking to hire several new sales reps, a Lead Designer, and a Marketing/Social Media Manager for their product lines.
Raging Heroes is looking to unlock some more minis for their Toughest Girls of the Galaxy 2 campaign.
“But, that Kickstarter’s been over for quite some time now!” I hear you say. Well, just because the Kickstarter is over doesn’t mean that the funding is and that there’s nothing else to be unlocked. They’re currently looking to unlock the Dark Elves Sorceress by getting people to share the photo from their Facebook page. They’ll unlock both the sci-fi and fantasy versions.
Raging Heroes is in their final hours for Toughest Girls of the Galaxy II over on Kickstarter. They’ve made it over $730k for the campaign, with lots of stretch goals broken, giving you more add-ons available as well as freebies thrown into your pledge package. They’re also updating the status of Wave 3 shipping for their Toughest Girls of the Galaxy 1 campaign. Things have been going more-or-less smoothly, though there has been a hiccup with one particular model.
From the update: Continue reading
Raging Heroes has added in a PayPal option for their Toughest Girls of the Galaxy 2 campaign. It’s not on their Kickstarter page (of course), but it’s over on their regular website. And if you want to get in on the campaign, but can’t for some reason right now, you can pledge via their website version until the end of the month. The pledges through their Kickstarter and their website tie in together for stretch goal unlocks.
From the website: Continue reading
Raging Heroes has added a new pledge level to their Toughest Girls of the Galaxy. You can now get the Eminence package. It’s $1,500, but you get over $2,475 worth of minis. There’s also new freebie unlocks available.
The campaign has 5 days left if you want to get in on the action.
Also, a reminder that not all the artwork could be considered safe for work on their campaign.
From the campaign: Continue reading
Raging Heroes once more takes to Kickstarter with a Toughest Girls of the Galaxy Kickstarter campaign. This time it’s Light and Darkness, as they have 6 new armies. One of the armies are the Lust Elves (so be warned if you’re at work and want to peruse the campaign). The campaign funded right away and has already funded several times more over (with it continuing to rise rather quickly at time of posting). So, like before, there’ll be stretch goals broken aplenty. An interesting aspect of this Kickstarter is that the armies have both sci-fi and fantasy styles, so there’s a larger group of gamers who might be interested in checking out what’s on offer.
From the campaign: Continue reading
Raging Heroes has announced that they’ll be starting a new Kickstarter campaign on the 25th. Now that the Toughest Girls of the Galaxy has been handled, they’re moving on to the Toughest Girls of the Galaxy 2: Tough Harder (ok, that’s not really the sub-heading. I just made it up). These will be light and dark elf miniatures. The difference this time is that the campaign will encompass both sci-fi and fantasy versions of the miniatures. So whether you prefer your swords to be laser/chainsaw variety, or just the standard “sharp piece of metal,” they have you covered.
From the announcement: Continue reading
Here we are again. Some shorter stories for Sunday surfing.
Today we’ve got: new Commands and Colors storage options from Sally 4th, Club Fantasci Interviews Ed Teixeira of THW Game Designs about Heroes of the Colosseum, new Abscessus release from Hitech Miniatures, a new Wolsung preview, new 15mm Trench Terrain available from Tabletop-Art, some fluff about Clan Ika from Ninja All-Stars, New Kurganovas Shock Troops models from Raging Heroes’ TGG range, Free Sci-Fi Ashcan for Brink of Battle gets a face lift, Kabuki Models – Legio Praetoriana Updates, and some new releases from Mierce Miniatures.
Raging Heroes continues to bring out more models from their Toughest Girls of the Galaxy line over in their webshop. The first Iron Empire heroes are now available. And because they’re so kind-hearted and in the spirit of giving this season, they’ve got some special deals over in their webshop, too, if you buy them as a bundle. Plus, you can get a free beer coaster with certain orders. Because why not?
From the release: Continue reading
Raging Heroes has released their Toughest Girls of the Galaxy line of models to the public. Their Kickstarter campaign ended a while ago, and it’s been quite a trek to get various parts of it sculpted, molded, and sent (and they’re not entirely done yet, but they’re getting there) to backers. They’re far enough along and have enough minis now in stock to be able to have them up for general purchase over on their website. That website’s brand new, too, by the way.
So go check it out and pick up some of the first Toughest Girls of the Galaxy.
From the release: Continue reading
