I did soooo much baking over the weekend.
*someone from the audience shouts out “How much baking did you do!?”*
I did so much that there’s still some of various treats left, even though there’s been a steady stream of coworkers out to the tables where they reside. Though we’re getting down to the last bits. I think it’s just a bit of fruitcake and the candy cane cookies left.
So, in lieu of trying to send those through the screen so you can try them, how about I just give you some tasty, bite-sized gaming stories, instead? Sounds like a plan.
Today on the platter we have: New Annihilation Beamer Available From Kromlech, The Goblin Sorcerer Paper Model Up On Kickstarter, Rebel Minis Christmas Sale Happening Now, and Mother of Dragons Resin Kit Up On Kickstarter.
It’s already Wednesday. Is the week going by quickly for everyone else, too? It feels like it is for me, anyway. But being busy will do that, I suppose. If I’m going to keep up this pace, I should stock up on some bite-sized gaming stories.
Today we have: Scrap Steel Base Deals Available From Tabletop-Art, Rebel Minis Releases 28mm Minotaur Warlord, Fog Monster Mini Fog Machine Up On Kickstarter, Saint Brendan of Clonfert Mini Available From Brother Vinni, and Through Gamer Goggles Posts Gen Con 2017 Interviews.
The week continues along. We’ll get back to that ever-loving weekend soon. Just another couple of days and it’ll be time once more. And I’m sure a lot of people in the US are going to be celebrating this weekend. With the 4th of July being a Tuesday this year, I’m guessing a lot of people are going to take this weekend to grill, shoot off some fireworks, and just celebrate America. I know I’m getting together with some friends on Saturday for just that sort of thing. I’m sure there’ll be tasty snacks there. Let’s snack on some tasty bite-sized gaming stories now, too.
Today on the platter we have: Wargamer Running Hot & Dangerous Kickstarter, Oddzial Osmy’s 3mm June Releases Arrive at PicoArmor, Rebel Minis Releases Gorilla Animech, Esh-Aven Previewed for Shadows in the Void, Through Gamer Goggles Posts Origins 2017 Coverage, New Skull Objective Markers Available From Kromlech, and PKCGames Running Dice of Rolling Kickstarter.
Usually, goblins are those things the DM throws at us when we’re level 1-3 in order to get the PCs some extra XP for when the “real” adventure starts up. But in Dark Hold, the goblins are the PCs. And Rebel Minis has released a new adventure for their game series. It’s Lair of the Cerebeast, and as one would expect, there’s a lair full of monsters to go investigate.
The week continues along. It’s a shortened week for many of us, but it’s still a week. We’ll make it to next weekend, eventually, though. No worries. But if we want to get there, we should re-energize with some bite-size gaming stories.
Today we have: New Magic Tokens Available From Advanced Deployment, New Releases Available From Purgatory Miniatures, Khurasan releases 15mm Parthians, New Crystal Tech blank Bases Deals Available From Tabletop-Art, Surreal Dice Tower Coming To Kickstarter, Acheson Creations Releases Daedon Miniature, Final Days for Hedgerows and Heroes On Kickstarter, New Glyphs Available From Bits of War, and Flat Bases for War Contraptions Now Available From Tabletop-Art.
Nature’s ruthless. You go out there and it’s survival of the fittest. Those fuzzy, cute animals will straight-up murder you if they need to. And when armed with axes, swords, and crossbows, they get even more ruthless. And that’s just what’s going on in Hedgerows & Heroes, a new miniatures game of woodland warfare from Rebel Minis. The game is up on Kickstarter now.
Spring is traditionally seen as a time to start something new. Everyone’s getting back out of their hibernation and out into the world, and getting started with a new project for the year is a good way to get involved with things. The folks over at Rebel Minis think it’s a perfect time to get you started on some of their games or model kits, and so they’re once again having their storewide sale.
Well, it’s finally Friday. Seems like it’s taken forever. Also, who wants to take bets on me clocking out this evening and then suddenly feeling like I’m clocking in on Monday morning? You know weekends never work like the work week. It’s going to just go by in a flash, I’m sure. Well, so I have enough energy to get through the rest of the day and then to zip through the weekend, I should load up on bite-sized gaming stories.
Today on the platter we have: Paymaster Games launches Aztec Kickstarter, KaYo Miniatures Running Clown Army 28mm Miniatures Kickstarter, Dhovaine RPG on the horizon for Higher Grounds, Wu Wei hits Kickstarter on March 20th, New Quad Lascannon From Kromlech, Final Days for Dragon Empire Army Up On Kickstarter, One Page Rules Releases Battle Sisters and Dark Elves Lists, Sword Art Online the Boardgame: Sword of Fellows Coming To Kickstarter, Brigade Models Release New 6mm PacFed, Imperial Agents Weekend Promo From Kromlech, and Rebel Minis Releases New Sci-Fi Horror Packs.
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.
At once, it feels both like, “wow. Already Wednesday?” and “wow. How is it only Wednesday?”
Is it that way for anyone else or just me?
I feel like I’ve gotten a lot done, but have a lot more waiting ahead of me.
Ah well. We’ll make it. Break on through to the other side. To help with that, here’s a bunch of bite-sized gaming stories.
Today on the platter we have: Scotia Grendel New Releases – October 2016, Rebel Minis Launches Rise of the Animechs Kickstarter, Shatterlands Kickstarter Reaches Funding Goal, Xtraidos Skirmish Game Relaunching Soon On Indiegogo, Ether Wars Kickstarter Relaunch November 22nd + Giveaway starting this Tuesday, New Releases Available From Victoria Miniatures, Idea Jab Card Game Coming To Kickstarter “Pretty Soonish”, Khurasan releases 15mm Seydlitz Tank, Geek Chic Releases The Vanguard Table, Chronicles Miniatures Game Looking For Beta Testers, Brother Vinni Releases Tricycle Robot, Final Hours For Shadows of Esteren On Kickstarter, Final Days for Ninja Arena On Kickstarter, Table Air Combat: U-2 Kukuruznik Now Available, Castles & Crusades latest Kickstarter in its final week, Twisted Brothers Studio join MAGE Company, and New Breacher Bikes Available From Kromlech.
Personally, I don’t celebrate my birthday. Just not really something I’m interested in doing. However, I’ll help others celebrate the hell out of their birthday. Any reason to bake up some cookies, brownies, or a cheesecake and I’m there. Well, you won’t be getting any cookies from Rebel Minis, but you will be getting some great deals during their birthday sale that’s going on now.
The work week continues along. It’s already half-over, in fact. Hopefully yours is going well. Mine’s not been great, but I’m making it through. Got board game day at the library coming up this weekend again. Should be a good time. But in the meantime, let’s bulk up on some bite-size gaming stories.
On the platter today we have: Final Day For D13 and D15 On Kickstarter: Now with Glow-in-the-Dark Dice, BugBear Miniatures WW2 US Troopers Preview, Rebel Minis Dark Hold Goblin Adventures RPG Last Days On Kickstarter, Divine Art Playing Cards Up On Kickstarter, New Iberian Cavalry Available From Victrix, Relicblade: Bone and Darkness Coming To Kickstarter Next Month, Ashton Campbell rides into Blackwater Gulch, and Kromlech New Release: Legionary Lascannon.
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.
Goblins. Most gamers are used to coming across packs of them as an initial adventure starting out a campaign. By about level 3, they’re probably not much of a threat anymore (except for those unscrupulous GMs that like to level-advance a whole tribe of them to throw at unsuspecting adventurers). The Dark Hold wants to put goblins front and center where they belong. Rebel Minis is running the Kickstarter campaign that’s going on right now.
The folks over at Rebel Minis have been doing rather well lately. So well that they’ve decided to create a spin-off in the from of Iron Keep Press in order to continue to working on current rules sets for their minis, as well as coming out with new rules sets that aren’t specifically based around their figure line.
The week rolls on. We’ve made it to Wednesday. I’m hoping your week is treating you well. After this, it’s downhill to another weekend. We can certainly make it if we try. Until then, we should stock up on some bite-size gaming stories. And that’s just what we have here.
On the platter today is: Brother Vinni Releases New Shadows for Their Dungeon Sisters, The Lords of Rock Kickstarter is coming August 1st, Gale Force Nine share more details on Tanks Organized Play, Kromlech Releases New Legionary Close Combat Arms, New 30mm and 40mm Space Dungeon Base Deals from Tabletop-Art, Werewolf Star Player Added To RN Estudio Indiegogo Campaign, Hitech Miniatures Releases Sanctifier Cornelius, Rebel Minis Releases New 28mm Forsaken Packs, Pre-Order Roleplaying Spell Effects on Backerkit, and Kromlech Releases New Orc Incinerator Team.
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 folks over at Rebel Minis have decided it’s time to have themselves a sale. Mighty Armies books are all $8 for the print version or $5 for the PDF.
Ok, everyone, we’re progressing along at a nice, steady pace through the week. We can keep this up. We can manage to continue this direction and speed and the weekend will be here before we know it. But we should stock up on energy. A great way to do that is via some bite-sized gaming stories. Good thing that’s just what we have for you now.
Today’s snippets include: New Tokens and Scoreboard Available From Advanced Deployment, Guild Ball Bag Standard Load Out Available From Battle Foam, Rebel Minis Releases 28mm Unarmed Civilians, Brigade Models Release New 15mm vehicles, Bombshell Miniatures launches KritterKins Kickstarter, Final Days For The Vampire, the Elf and the Cthulhu On Kickstarter, and Last three days for 25% off with intro deal At EZPainter.
Temperatures are warming. The days are longer. The pollen count is leaving everything outside coated in green/gold powder and causing absolute havoc with your sinuses. It must be spring! And seeing as it’s spring, Rebel Minis has launched their Spring Sale.
For everyone that’s been worried about it: My fruitcake turned out perfectly. 😛
Since I know that all of you have been waiting with baited breath to find out about it. We’ll see how it goes over with everyone at the office tomorrow, where everyone will get a good bite of what, I hope, is a new revolution in thinking about fruitcake.
On the subject of good bites, we’ve got some bite-sized news stories for you, as usual.
Today’s include: Iron Cross: release date & pre-order announced, Rebel Minis Releases 28mm Dark Hold Bonewalker Wraiths Set, Squadron Strike 2nd Edition Coming Now, and Hadekine Demon release by Gary Hunt Miniatures and Zombiesmith.
This morning I’m sitting here listening to 90s music. I mean, it’s the music I listened to when I “discovered music.” So why not? One of the things bands will often do is swap around members for a project or two. So you get combinations of some of your favorite musicians all in one band. That’s sort of what is going on with the Red Ops 5: Asylum game over on Kickstarter now.
The week rolls on. To think we’ve already made it to Wednesday. We deserve something nice. Like… a batch of bite-sized stories served up all in one place for your convenience. Yeah, that sounds good.
So let’s get to it.
Today we have: Bailey Records New Release: Kaiju Kaos – OMFG Series 4 Stat Cards, Folklore: The Affliction announces Story Journal created with Adam & Brady Sadler, Dragonborn – Symphonic Album for Table RPGs Kickstarter, Rebel Minis Releases 15mm Civilian Hunters Pack #3 now Available, Alternative Armies: Dwarf Runic Golem 28mm kit pre-order offers now live, Nova Aetas – Vesuvio’s Forge overview, Purgatory Releases St. Peter Figure, New Medieval Soccer tokens and templates from Advanced Deployment, A0 The Rising Knight — Adventures for 5th Edition Rules, Now available – Flagstone Deals From Tabletop-Art, Bardagi – The claim for Gold – 170% funded on Kickstarter, Red Box Games Halloween 20% Sale, and Machu Picchu Dice on Kickstarter.
Everyone likes a good reason to celebrate. Birthdays are a pretty good reason. Rebel Minis is having a birthday. As such, they are celebrating. And it should stand to reason, then, that everyone likes that.
Friday has once again blessed us with its presence. Let us bask in its warm glow of warming glowing… or something.
Suffice to say that the weekend is almost here. What sort of plans do you have coming up? Gaming? Cooking? Or just boring, old “yard work” and the like?
For the moment, we’ve got our batch of bite-sized stories.
Today’s include: Darkmook Paper Miniatures begin back catalogue upgrade, Fey A new line of 54mm miniatures, Retained Command Charlie released at The Ion Age, The Roots of Magic- an upcoming fantasy skirmish wargame, Willy Miniatures Necromantic – Undead Fantasy Football Team Coming Soon, Thinker Tinker Maker: Game Inserts & CCG Boxes On Kickstarter, Rebel Minis Releases 28mm Earth Force Security “Hounds”, Hitech Miniatures Releases Mystic Sergius, New Female Viking Unit from Brother Vinni, Alternative Armies releases four classic Goblin packs, Fantasy Treasure Chest by Fantasy Coin Coming Soon, Kromlech New Release – Chaos Legionary Jump Pack, and Madzzle Jigsaw Puzzle Game Up On Kickstarter.
Going to a convention isn’t easy. There’s a lot of expenses for travel, hotel, registration. And that’s just if you’re going as a spectator. If you’re a vendor, there’s the logistics of getting your product to the show. You need to set up a booth. You need to have staffing for said booth. It can be a real headache. So not everyone does it. Historicon is this week, and while you may be there, Rebel Minis won’t be. So they’re having a sale on their website instead.
Time to let your hair down, get together with some friends, and hopefully get some gaming in.
As usual, we’ve got some bite-sized stories we’ve collected together over the past couple days and serve them to you now.
In this batch we have: AMP Adventures Collection Available Now, Res Publica by Reiner Knizia returns This Summer, Rebel Minis Releases Earth Force Kodiak Class Battlesuits, Dave Chalker’s Top 10 Tips When Negotiating Contracts, New Perk Added To Another World Indiegogo campaign, Kromlech New Release – Legionary Jump Pack, New Front Arc Marker Released by Tabletop-Art, ClearHorizon Miniatures Releases the 28mm Nemesis Light Strike Vehicle, Club Fantasci Interviews Karl Fenner of Common Man Games About Police Precinct: Uplift, Veil Fall Dark Future Horror Miniatures Kickstarter By Erebus Studios Running Now, and Victrix Ltd 28mm Napoleonic French Artillery – slight delay.
We’re half there to back to the weekend.
This weekend will be a rather busy one. Tomorrow it’s set-up for the CMON Expo and Friday it starts. We’ve got a lot planned, especially for Saturday. Be sure to check back on that day regularly as we post updates from the various panels that’ll be happening that day. If you’re interested in CMON’s games, you’ll want to check back often.
But that’s this weekend. We’re still on Wednesday. Let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Right now, we’ve got another set of bite-sized stories.
This batch we have: Forge Prints HD Dungeon Accessories and Bases Kit 1 on Kickstarter, Robot Zombie Cat Card Game On Kickstarter, Crooked Dice release Heroic Archetypes, The Thin Blue Line: Detroit Savage Worlds Module Coming to Kickstarter Soon, Rebel Minis Releases 28mm Earth Force Widowmaker Battlesuits, Adeptus Mechanicus joins the fray in One Page 40k, Several More Installments of The Fiver from The Meeple Mechanic, Heroic Maps New Wardenhale Gambling Den Map, Post Captain Master Index Pt 2.

Ah. Spring. Temperatures are on the rise. People are getting back outside to enjoy the weather. There’s pollen everywhere… ok, maybe that last one isn’t such a great thing about spring… but still. At Rebel Minis, they think it’s just about the right time to have a sale. They only have 2 a year, so they like to make them worthwhile. As such, they’re giving 20% off your purchase in their webshop.
It’s another Sunday. To those of you that celebrate it, Happy Easter. To the rest, I hope your Sunday is just as awesome as well.
I had my traditional hard boiled eggs and cold kielbasa this morning. It was just as tasty as always.
Speaking of tasty bites, we’ve got our also-traditional bite-sized stories we’ve collected over the past few days to present to you now.
This serving we’ve got: More editions of The Fiver from The Meeple Mechanic, Trash Bash Bits on Kickstarter, New Blackwater Gulch and Mechadrome Models Coming Soon, Valon Civilians released at Alternative Armies, Alliance Boarding Trooper Art Preview from Icarus Miniatures, Imaginary Empire Releases Wicked Lies & Alibis, Rebel Minis Releases 15mm Valonians, and New Historical Tables of Order and Equipment Available for April 2015 from TOEHub.
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.
This installment we have: The Fiver from The Meeple Mechanic about Tesla vs. Edison, Kromlech gives you the bird, New 2mm Coastal Items from Brigade Models, Special Deal on Pulp Figures from Sally 4th, Pretty Pretty Pictures & Shipping Update for Super Dungeon Explore, MiniWorlds: Finally Mini-Texture arrived, Dies Irae news from Tercio Creativo, Rebel Minis Releases More 15mm Pulp Packs, Ral Partha Europe Miniatures Sci-fi Amphibians kickstarter now live, New Print-and-Play Cedar Mountain Board Game from Wargame Shop, Mage Company Previews 12 Realms: bedtime Story Kickstarter, Deep-Cut Studio releases new sandy desert theme mats, Big Book of Bloodlines Kickstarter launches, Embers Design Studios Launches The City of Brass web-based tabletop RPG app Kickstarter, 15mm Fantasy Buildings pre-order offer at 15mm.co.uk, Open Combat hits initial funding level, and the Figopedia now available from Figone.

So, what snippets do we have for you today?
We have: More “The Fiver” interviews from The Meeple Mechanic, Dancing Dice Entertainment running Jumpgate Armada Kickstarter, “Rule Breakers” card game on Kickstarter, Acheson Creations Dungeon Worlds Kickstarter – New Tiles & New Options, Conquistador Games Announces Upcoming Tesla vs. Edison Games, Deep-Cut Studio launches gaming mats for futuristic football, Rebel Minis releases the Titan Class Viper Mk1, Terrible Kid Stuff New releases – Barin, Splittingbones, & Al Capone, The Scrap Steel Round Lip Bases are now available from Tabletop-Art, Kabuki Models Dwarf Beer Maiden at AdeptiCon, and MidKnight Heroes next character reveal Oda – The Rokheim Battle Master.
I know that gamers aren’t generally known for their sports knowledge, but you’d have to be willfully ignorant not to know that it’s Big Game time (because the NFL is about as litigious as GW, I’ll skip out on using the actual term for what’s going on today). That’s right, here in the US, our American Football championship is happening tonight. Wings, beer, nachos, giant sandwiches, and pizza will be consumed in mammoth proportions.
But before you head to your party, check out some these bite-sized stories.
This time we’ve got: More unlocks for the Fightin’ Fungi Kickstarter, a new release from Hitech Miniatures, New Knights Bundle from Kabuki Models, New Gaming Mats from Deep-Cut Studio, New Mine Tunnel Terrain from Heroic Maps, NOVA 40K Qualifier offered at TotalCon 29, New Previews Posted for Alternative Civil War, New 15mm Houses from Tabletop-Art, New Drunk Goblin Guard from Rebel Minis, and Ludus Magnus Studios announced their relaunch date for Nova Aetas.
Rebel Minis has once again gotten their Christmas Sale underway over in their webshop. From now until the end of the year, just use code Rebel2014 and get 20% off of your order. And you need to worry if something sells out, because when they get a restock, they’ll still honor the sale price on your order. But obviously, it’s best to get the figures first time around, so you’d better hurry.
From them to you: Continue reading
