Friday Snippets

The weekend is pretty much upon us. We just need to finish up this afternoon and we’ll be there. Do you have plans? I’m still unsure. Though I think I want to make a cheesecake, because it’s been a while since I’ve made cheesecake. Probably make more strawberry-lime sauce to go with it. Or maybe I’ll do raspberry-lime. I don’t know. But there’s still time to think about it. In the meantime, we gotta fill up on some bite-size gaming stories.

On the platter today we have: West Wind Productions Announces Panzer Mech Kickstarter, Ninja Division Announces Relic Knights 2nd Edition Kickstarter, Wiley Games New Home Of Fistful of Lead, New Animal Explorers From RN Estudio, Khurasan releases M1152 with canvas cover, New Releases From Hitech Miniatures, New Release from Kromlech, and Rectangular Bases on Sale From Micro Art Studio.

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.

Ninja Division Posts Update About Relic Knights

I’ve got a story that involves giant robots, so you know I’m excited about that. It’s been a while since Ninja Division/Soda Pop Miniatures has talked about Relic Knights. The game got off to a… somewhat rocky start. But even though Ninja Division hasn’t been posting about the game doesn’t mean they haven’t been working on it, quietly, stealthily, behind the scenes. No, they’re finally ready to let out some information about what they’ve been doing, complete with new artwork and model previews (and that’s where the giant robots come in… along with some guy in seafoam green pants).

Relic Knights December Releases Now Available

Ninja Division has the latest sets for Relic Knights now available over in their webshop. Cerci Speed Circuit gets a pair of releases in the form of the Wrecker and the Pit Crew (sort of two ends of the spectrum there). The Noh Empire gets the new Render (it’s a real model, not just a render), because oni with sci-fi guns is fun. Black Diamond gets a new mini-tank. I remember seeing one of these when the Kickstarter campaign stuff was coming through. It’s cute. Finally, the Star Nebula Corsairs gets… well… their Corsairs box. Seems an appropriate thing to get.

From the update:

Protection of life above all else. The United Planetary Alliance was forged by the paladin orders of the Six Peers. It is through their dedication and sacrifice that civilization flourished, ushering in a time of prosperity almost beyond the scope of comprehension. Greatest of the orders, the Order of the Shattered Sword is the thin line holding back the chaos of Calamity—it is more than that. It is a shining beacon. It is a rallying cry! It is a promise that the Void will be stopped and life will prevail.

The Shattered Sword Battle Box comes with Francis Malory, his cypher Quill, 2 Paragons, and 5 Swordsworn.

Soda Pop Miniatures updates about Relic Knights shipping schedule

Soda Pop Miniatures needs your updated shipping information by the 10th, because they’re almost ready to start sending out Relic Knights models.

Source

From the update:

As we are entering the final stages of Relic Knights production, please ensure your address is correct and up to date no later than November 10th.

This is very important – this is a very large and complex project so as announced in our previous update we will be sending a team near the factory to pack your orders before transshipping them to Europe / USA / Asia Pacific for redistribution. That means if we miss this window, your rewards will ship from our default location in the USA and won’t go out with the first batch (which we are planning to mass ship together).
