This week feels like it’s going by quickly. I was waking up this morning and went, “whoah… it’s already Wednesday.” Seems those podcasts are helping. Either that, or it’s because I’m pretty busy over here. Lots going on behind the scenes. My screen’s pretty full of stuff, to be honest. And if I’m going to get through all of it, I should power up on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: LARC 32mm Resin VTOL up on Kickstarter, Matilda Tanks Available to Pre-Order From Victoria Miniatures, New Legionary Banners Available from Kromlech, Final Days For Impact! Miniatures Elf Fantasy Football Teams Kickstarter, and Ratgard Previews Leader Ratss Battle Tank.
