Friday Snippets

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.

The week marches on. We’re through the first half and headed towards the finish. Just gotta make it 2.5 more days and it’ll be the weekend once more.

We should also be sure to fill up on bite-sized gaming stories, and that’s just what we’ve got for you now.

Mid-Week Snippets

We’ve made it to another Wednesday. And at the time of this posting, it’s halfway through the workday. It’s like the Wednesday of hours on the Wednesday of days. If only it were the 15th of the month, too. Then it’d be the Wednesday of the month on the Wednesday of the week on the Wednesday of the hour.
… or maybe I’m just taking things too far now.

Anyway, we’ve got another bunch of bite-sized stories we’ve collected.

Ral Partha Europe now has Goblin Aid models available

Ral Partha Europe has their first batch of Goblin Aid models available over on their website.

From the announcement:

Despite the presence over Liverpool of a large glowing yellow orb that tv news presenters have labelled ‘the sun’ we have managed to get the first GoblinAid releases into production. These figures have been sculpted by some of the best in the business in order to raise money for their colleague and friend Kev ‘Goblinmaster’ Adams.
More information about the GoblinAid project can be found on our site and on the dedicated facebook page.
Once Vat and raw material costs have been accounted for, all proceeds from the sale of these figures will go directly to Kev himself to aid him on his road to recovery.
All miniatures come packaged with a GoblinAid insert listing all the sculptors involved.
