I just realized this morning that this upcoming weekend is the last one before Christmas.
Ok, so, technically Christmas has one more weekend before it, but since it falls on a Monday, it means this upcoming week is the last one before the holiday. As such, I’ve just now realized how much baking I need to do (since that’s what I give as presents to friends). Looks like this Saturday’s shopping list is going to include a lot of unsalted butter, flour, and chocolate chips, plus whatever else I feel like throwing in. But before I get to those tasty treats, let’s get to today’s tasty treats in terms of bite-sized gaming stories.
Today on the platter we have: December Releases Available From Scotia Grendel, War in Christmas Village Sequel Up On Kickstarter, and HeresyLab Working on a New Line of Miniatures.
By this time next week, multitudes of gamers will be converging on Indianapolis, ready for the start of Gen Con the next day. Yeah, we’re a week and a day away from the start of the show. Though, many people know that basically the whole week is Gen Con, these days. So we should probably stock up on some bite-sized gaming stories to see us through.
Today we have: Riot Dice Up On Kickstarter, Warbands of the Cold North Dwarves Up On Kickstarter, New Releases Available From Dark Sword Miniatures, Lead Adventure Miniatures Running Bruegelburg – A Day at the Fair Kickstarter, New Glyphs Available From Kromlech, Metallic Legends: Collectible Fantasy Coins Up On Kickstarter, Super Chibi Round 3 Up On Kickstarter, New Basing Dials From Pyrkol, Brigade Models Releases New 15mm SF Vehicles, and Scotia Grendel Doing UK/European Production for Delvers Lost in the Dungeons of Doom III.
We’re getting closer to that weekend. Just another day and a half and we’ll be there. Hopefully, you’ve got some gaming plans lined up. I’ve got some partial ones, myself. We’ll see how it goes. But if you are going to be gaming, you should have a good-looking gaming table. So let’s help out with that here.
Today in the Terrain Corner we have: June Releases Available From Scotia Grendel, Dwarven Forge Running Dungeon of Doom Kickstarter, Final Days for BattleMats RPG Encounter Kickstarter, Lifeless Land Gaming Mat Available From Pwork Wargame, and District 5 Warehouse Available From Micro Art Studios.
Well, we’re halfway there, everyone. Next weekend is as far ahead of us as the previous one is behind us. Just gotta power through another 2.5 days and we’ll be back at Saturday. Ah, glorious Saturday. But if we’re going to get there, we should recharge ourselves with some bite-sized gaming stories.
On the platter today we have: Scotia Grendel Posts New Releases, Now available: More round and oval Stonefloor Bases and Deals From Tabletop-Art, Tattoo Ink Card Deck Up On Indiegogo, Tiny Tin Troops Wargame Supplies & Services Launches New Website, XCase Clear Modular Miniatures Display and Transport On Kickstarter, RN Estudio Launches Mythexplorers Kickstarter, Native Renegades from Blind Beggar Miniatures now on Kickstarter, and Brigade Models Releases New 6mm and 15mm Yenpalo Aliens.

Just join the group. They’re also having special give-aways happening over there. You’ll probably want to check it out.
Today’s a day to celebrate. Why? It’s my 5th anniversary with TGN. Yes, on this day, 5 years ago, I made my first post on the site. It was the new plastic Warp Wolf kit that Privateer Press was coming out with. Oh how gaming has changed since then. I remember having a conversation, a couple months into my tenure, with Ross “The Legend” Thompson (my boss at the time) about, “These Kickstarter-things.”
So, to celebrate, let’s have a bunch of bite-sized gaming stories.
What? We do that every Wednesday? Well, fine, be that way.
Today we have: Dice Coins 2 Up On Kickstarter, I Will Never Grow Up becomes exclusive distributor of Field Marshal Games products, Ramshackle Games Posts Stretch Goal Goblin For Jet Bike Kickstarter, New Discworld Death Bust -15% discount, Factions Fantasy Playing Cards Coming To Kickstarter in January, New Releases Available From Scotia Grendel, Casual Game Revolution Posts 2017 Tabletop Gaming Conventions Map, Mage Company To Launch Sleeves and Gaming Accessories Kickstarter, Kill the Unicorns Coming to Kickstarter in June, New Morbid Legionary Torsos From Kromlech, Temple of Isis Round Lip Bases Now Available From Tabletop-Art, New Releases And Final Christmas Sale From Advanced Deployment, Flatminis 2D preprinted miniatures are now available as PDF download, Two new Characters bring gold to Talisman: Digital Edition, and Khurasan releases 15mm Hezbollah and Syrian Government Forces.
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.

I don’t know about you, but my week has been busy. Lots of news. Lots of proofing projects. Lots of e-mails to reply to about a myriad of things. And tonight’s going to be busy, too. Friend’s birthday party tomorrow, so I’ll be doing some baking to take to the party. Pumpkin snickerdoodles, to be specific. I’m going to make them a lot smaller than my usual cookies I make, then make a cream cheese filling and basically make them Oreos with it. It’s the first pumpkin-flavored thing I’m making this year.
Speaking of bite-size morsels of joy, we’ve got our regular assortment of stories for you.

Well, it’s been a bit of a short week here in the office, having only come in Wed-Fri. Though, with having just a little time off from Gen Con, it felt much longer. I’m looking forward to a weekend of doing probably not all that much at all. Just some time to decompress a bit. Should be nice. Lets me put together some of the figures I got at the show. To do that, I’ll need energy. Energy in the form of bite-sized gaming stories.
On today’s platter we have: Forest Goblins multi-part plastics is Shieldwolf Miniatures Coming To Kickstarter, Xtraidos Crowdfunding Campaign Launched, TinMan’s 35% Off Back In Business Sale Ends Soon, Oddzial Osmy’s 3mm August Releases Arrive at PicoArmor, Victoria Miniatures Female Greatcoat Legs and BFG Ammo Crates Now Available, and New Undead Orcs From Scotia Grendel.
We’re making our way through the week here at a steady pace. It’s already Wednesday. I hope it’s going smoothly for you. It’s been naturally busy the first couple days after the Expo. I’m mostly caught up. Just a couple things left.
But at the exact moment, it’s bringing you some bite-sized gaming stories to chew on.

Well, as Lynyrd Skynyrd said, Tuesday’s gone. That, of course, means we’ve moved on to Wednesday. Woo! We’re halfway through the week! Always a good feeling that. The weekend is getting closer every minute. Before we get there, though, we need to serve up some bite-sized stories we’ve come across in the past couple days.

Well, we’re mostly caught-up here after the Expo last weekend. Still a few things to deal with, but my inbox was actually down to a manageable level after going through it yesterday. Of course, it’s now filled back up again, but waddyagonnado?
Another thing that’s full is the box with the bite-sized stories we’ve collected over the past couple days.

We’re halfway through May. That’s a pretty good time to post up one’s May releases, and Scotia Grendel has done just that. They’ve got two characters and two units now available, plus a new bridge terrain piece, because nobody really wants to have to wade across an icy river if they don’t have to. Ok, maybe I know some people that would, but I know some really strange people.
It’s another Sunday. Time for some more of the shorter, bite-sized stories that we’ve come across in the past couple days.
Also, yesterday during D&D, our party almost blew up the world (or at least an entire tropical island). Good times.

They’ve got a couple different packs you can buy them in, to suit just whatever application you want them for.

Dawn of the Lead posted up an article reviewing the A.T.A.C. APC from Scotia Grendel.
From the article:
Overall verdict: Apart from some casting and size issues, the A.T.A.C. APC is a very nice find for its price. It’s not perfect as a model or as an Aliens APC proxy, but if you want a little armoured power for your troopers, you could do far worse – especially if your minis collection is more 28mm than 30mm.
Graven Games gives us another of their reviews with a look at some terrain from Scotia Grendel.
From the review:
Welcome to today’s review in which we are checking out 2 sets of 28mm sci-fi scenics available from Scotia Grendel. We’ve previously had fun with some of Scotia Grendel’s vehicle kits, so we’re looking forward to seeing what their terrain has to offer. As we’ve mentioned before Scotia Grendel’s website is a treasure-trove of interesting models, some of which are from ranges that you might have thought were no longer available, so is well worth a look.
Graven Games has a review up of the Sci-Fi APC by Scotia Grendel.
From the review:
Welcome to today’s review in which we’re taking a look at a 25-28mm Sci-fi APC from Scotia Grendel, who describe this kit as a “small tracked vehicle with a turret-mounted weapon, for suppressing unrest with extreme prejudice.” …that sounds good to us! As we’ve mentioned before Scotia Grendel’s website is a treasure-trove of interesting models, some of which are from ranges that you might have thought were no longer available, so is well worth a look.
Scotia Grendel posted up a photo of the new half trolls they’ve been working on.
From the update:
For those you you who have been waiting for the rerelease of the old black tree figures, this week i`ve managed to fill the stock bins with the half trolls, next week who knows – but I`ll be trying to get something done for then, meanwhile a pikkie of the half trolls. There are 4 packs coded GFR0031-GFR0034
