Red Panda Miniatures Posts New Wander Preview

Well, unfortunately, I’m not going to be able to make it to Adepticon this year. Sad, too, because I was really looking forward to trying out Red Panda Miniatures’ new game, Wander: The Cult of Barnacle Bay. Well, I can still live vicariously through photos posted online.
Or I could just drive over to BA’s place after they get back and make him show me how the game works. One of the two.
Anyway, they’ve posted up some preview shots of the game laid out for the demo scenario.

Gen Con Day 2 Photo Galleries

So, it’s coming up to 8pm. Day 2 is definitely in the books for Gen Con 2016. It’s been a very busy day. I’m tired, but still pretty amped about everything that’s gone on. And I’m sure you all would like to know about some of it. There’s been about a billion things to see. So, relatively, here’s a rather small percentage. More will come tomorrow.

Gen Con Day 1

Hey Everyone!

It’s really hard to believe the first day of Gen Con’s already over and I’m here getting prepped for Day 2! It was such a whirlwind, I didn’t get a chance to make this post last night. But don’t worry, I’ll be sure to get plenty more pictures today and get ’em up this evening for you. Remember, follow the TGN Facebook page to get these as they’re posted if you simply cannot wait to see what’s going on here at the show.

Well, as was expected, Thursday has turned into Friday. The week’s still going by quickly (that’s NOT a complaint). So it should be almost no time before I’m headed home for a lovely weekend of… I’m not 100% sure what I’ll be up to this weekend. Having spent the last two Saturdays driving ~9 hours, if I just was to chill at home, I’d be able to handle that. But that doesn’t mean I shouldn’t stock up on some bite-size gaming stories in the meantime.

Hey everyone.
Well, I’m back home again. What? You didn’t realize I wasn’t sitting in the office as usual this week? That’s because TGN is always in my heart and I take it wherever I go.

The week continues along. As it goes, so do we along with it. The weekend is coming up soon. It’ll hopefully be here before we know it. I’m going to an inaugural board game day at a library that a friend works at. Probably to play Guild Ball. I know that’s not technically a board game. But I don’t care. I’m a rebel.

Red Panda Miniatures Launches Wander Kickstarter

Long-time readers of TGN will no doubt know the name of Heath “BA” Foley (artist to the stars). He’s done artwork for quite a few companies out there, including On the Lamb, Gangfight Games, and Mantic. Well, recently he’s made his own company, Red Panda Miniatures (or RPM for short. I told him to go with Bar Axel Miniatures, which would mean he could be “BAM” but I lost out). They’ve launched a Kickstarter campaign for Wander, their new line of figures, that they hope to turn into a game in the future.
