As I work at catching up with all the everything from the past week, here’s a mix of the terrain articles from the past couple days, along with some bite-sized gaming stories. I certainly can use the energy.
Today we have: Syrinscape Creating Soundtracks for Starfinder, Acheson Creations Releases second set products from Dungeon Worlds 3 Kickstarter, Manorhouse Workshop Update 17 – Forgotten Halls: Into the Boxes, RPG WorldBuilder Up On Kickstarter, Heroic Maps Releases Upper Lockgold Street Map, Ogroid Chief Available From Brother Vinni, Brigade Models Releases New British Assault Ships, and RPG Player Kits from Crit Games Up On Kickstarter.
This has been quite a week. There’s been all the excitement coming out of GAMA, with lots of great announcements being made. And tomorrow I’ve got Board Game Day up at the library. I’m feeling a bit drained from it all. Better nosh on some bite-sized gaming stories.
Today on the platter we have: Halfsies Dice – The World Tour On Kickstarter, Blacksmith Miniatures: World of Jean-Baptiste Monge On Kickstarter, The Adventurer’s Collection Tabletop Soundtrack on Kickstarter, New Hammer Objective Markers Available From Kromlech, Syrinscape Announces License for Starfinder RPG, New 6mm Hammer’s Slammers Vehicles Released, and Gaming Accessories Weekend Promo Happening At Bits of War.
Time has been playing weird tricks this week, I feel. The first several days flew by. Thursday took an eternity. Now, today’s doing a little bit of both. I feel like it should be later than it is, so it feels like it’s been a long time since this morning… but I’ve also gotten a ton of stuff done. So I dunno. I do know that I’m possibly going to be playing some Guild Ball this evening and then some D&D tomorrow. So that’s cool. Better pack myself full of energy with some bite-sized gaming stories.
Today on the platter we have: New Imperial Knight Heads From Forge World, Knight Models Previews Suicide Squad Dice, Kromlech New Release: Legionary Shotgun, Angels and Demons join Flatminis 2D miniatures range, Shadows of Esteren Announces Partnership with Syrinscape, Talisman is Free to Play This Weekend Only, Comrades in Battle Reaches Funding Goal, 15mm Naval Crews Range is Back From Capitan Games, and Final Days for Tavern Masters Kickstarter.
Friiiiiiidaaaaaaay! The gateway to the weekend. Hopefully you’ve got some gaming planned for the next couple days. I don’t have anything specific lined up, but there’s still plenty of time. At the very least, I’m thinking I want to make some brownies this weekend. Though I might throw in something a little special…
That being cayenne pepper. You know, I’ve heard a lot about mixing “heat” with “sweet” and am finally gonna give it a go. I’ll let you know about the results.
Anyway, before we get to those tasty bites, we have some tasty bites here to deal with.
On today’s platter we have: New Thousand Sons Legion Transfer Sheet From Forge World, Lead Adventure Miniatures Launches Astropolis Kickstarter, Terrible Kids Stuff Posts September New Releases, New Damage Trackers From Proxie Models, Syrinscape Releases Geek & Sundry’s Critical Role: Goblin Raid SoundPack, Code Orange Games Running Free Collision Model Giveaway Contest, Kromlech Weekend Promo: Jump Packs, Turncoat Games Running WWII Cavalry Kickstarter, and Sally 4th Posts Free Combat Patrol – Falklands War Supplement.
The week continues along, as it tends to do. It’s only just today that I really realized that this upcoming weekend is a long one for those of us here in the US. The 4th of July falls on Monday. So that’ll be cool. Time for some BBQs. But before we get to the hamburgers, hot dogs, and fireworks, we’d best fill up on some bite-sized gaming stories.
Today we have: Khurasan releases 15mm Ancient Siamese, Trailer Park Zombies Up On Indiegogo, Dwarven Mountain Rams Riders from Scibor Now Available, New Player Boards for Power Grid by CorSec Engineering, Attaking the Darkness Mockumentary is free until July 1st, New Ravens Available From Tabletop-Art, Big Magic: The Gathering – Puzzle Quest Update, Casual Game Insider Coming to Books-A-Million And Launching New Kickstarter, Wildside Gaming System to be Released as a Free App, Skirmisher Publishing Releases Quantum Flux: Unique Superscience Artifacts, Syrinscape Releases Gen Con Soundset, and New Legionary Ranged Arms Available From Kromlech.
It’s almost here, everyone! The weekend will be here before you know it! Along with the gaming, I’m certainly ready for pizza for dinner tonight. The Ramen I’ve been having is getting a bit old on the palate. But in the meantime, I can nosh on some bite-sized gaming stories.
Today we have: Syrinscape and Green Ronin Partner For Mutants and Masterminds Soundscapes, 28mm 1939-41 Soviets Kickstarter is live, Mechanical Dice Towers up on Kickstarter, Knuckle Sammich Reaches Funding Goal on Kickstarter, First Busts from project “Monument of Glory-2” now available From Shieldwolf Miniatures, Tanto Cuore International launching June 7th, New Customization Add-On for Polyversal Kickstarter, and Kromlech Weekend Pigment Promo.
I’ve really been looking forward to this weekend. Not that the work week’s been bad, mind you. It’s actually gone by in a flash. No, I’m just ready for a full weekend of gaming (and article-writing, which is a direct result of the gaming). What sort of things do you have planned? Whatever it is, we’d best make sure you’ve got lots of energy, which can be gained from some bite-size gaming stories. We have just that for you here now.
Today there’s: Moose Added to Flint and Feather Kickstarter, Final Days for Ral Partha’s Kickstarter, New Jet Engines and Bases Available From Hitech Miniatures, New Pathfinder Soundpacks Available From Syrinscape, French & Indian War Canoes On Kickstarter, Khurasan releases support weapons for 15mm Modern US Army, Raging Heroes extends the Free Shipping Offer, and LOAD gives away some of their awesome hero miniatures.
The work week marches on (as Glenn Miller – American Patrol plays on Pandora). We’re halfway there, beautiful watchers. We’ve made it to Wednesday. Let’s keep on keepin’ on and make our way to the rest of the week. However, a quick bite would be good. Oh, look, some bite-sized gaming stories for you. How convenient.
Today’s installment of Snippets we have: Brigade Models Release New 6mm Armoured Infantry, Cannon Fodder WW2 Stickers Now Available, New ATER miniatures are here, New Weapons and Accessories Available from Victoria Miniatures, DeepWars – Blood Reef Kickstarter coming soon, and New Bases Available From Tabletop-Art.
I live my life on the internet. Obviously, I work here. But I also find my entertainment here. Along with going to dozens of gaming websites every day, I also stop by several webcomics, one of which is Looking For Group. I just love reading about the wacky antics of Cale, Richard, and the rest of the group. Who doesn’t love a good “Fwooosh!”? Speaking of things being on fire, “sometimes you just gotta burn down an orphanage.” Well, that’s the case in Orphans and Ashes, anyway, a new game set in the Looking for Group universe. Pre-orders are being taken now.
Well, we’re working our way through it. The work week is just about half-over. I hope it’s going well for you. It’s been alright over here. Gotten a lot of stuff done already this week. Hoping to keep the productivity up.
Anyway, at the moment, we’ve got some snack-sized stories for you to munch on.
Today’s installments include: WizKids Show and Event Schedule for 2016 Posted, Two New Helmet Styles Available From Puppets War, New Infinity Tokens Available From Warsenal, Tor Gaming Player Survey Up Now, New Iron Reich Goblin Commander From Kromlech, New Bonefield Round-Lip Base Deals Available From Tabletop-Art, Syrinscape’s Turn of the Torrent SoundPack Now Available, and Summoner Wars Second Summoner Playtesting Starting.
Can you tell I’m excited? What can I say? I love weekends and Friday is the gateway to the weekend. I’m like a kid in school ready to bust out and… well, I don’t exactly go crazy on weekends. Like this weekend I’ll be finishing up magnetizing my Calth set and probably watching more stand-up comedy on Netflix (aka – a gamer-modified “Netflix and chill”). But still, Wooooo!
Before we get there, though, we gotta give you some bite-sized stories we’ve come across in the past few days.
Today’s batch includes: Campaign Coins Releases Red Dragon Inn Coins Set, Kromlech New Release – Monstrous Creature Wings, Centauri Saga Reaches Funding Goal On Kickstarter, Tabletop Games Catan and More Come to Life with New Board Game Player App from Syrinscape, Kromlech Weekend Promo – Free Glue With Qualifying Order, and New Front Arc Marker Available From Tabletop-Art.
And here we are again at Wednesday. I hope your week is treating you well. The hectic nature of the early week is making its way for a generally calm mid-week. With any luck, that will continue on.
One thing we have going on today is our Midweek Snippets.
This batch of bite-sized stories includes: Precis Intermedia is now taking pre-orders for the Amazing 8in1 Die, Hitech Miniatures New Exorcist Released, Combat Patrol: WWII To Be Released Soon, Syrinscape Releases Spooky Soundpack for Halloween, Dark Art Studios Releases Gothrac – Zombie Dragon, Another World Miniatures Releases Anjelika Female Commissar, Dicey Ventures Studios Launches the Venture Dice Bag on Kickstarter, 15 Days Left For Ninja Crusade 2nd Edition On Kickstarter, Binary Dice Sets On Kickstarter, Brigade Models Release New SF Wheeled Tanks, Crooked Claw Goblins Up On Indiegogo, and New Arc Markers Available From Tabletop-Art.

Time to kick back, relax, and hopefully get some gaming on.
It’s also time for another group of bite-sized stories before we head into the weekend.
In this batch we have: Kromlech Releases New Battle Dice colors, Syrinscape Launches In Hell’s Bright Shadow for the New Pathfinder Adventure Path Hell’s Rebels, Mounted Dwarf Musketeers Up On Kickstarter, Khurasan releases 15mm Cavemen, Hitech Miniatures Releases Lord Incantator Krabathor on Hellworm, a couple more installments of The Fiver, SuperBlue Adder released at The Ion Age, Another Warthrone approved army list: Beastmen from Warhammer, Warpaints Quickshade Ink Set II – out now From The Army Painter, Cabals Kickstarter relaunching soon, Gabriel Cross from Icarus Miniatures Available Now, and Alternative Armies releases two classic Dogmen packs.
As if there weren’t already enough going on at Gen Con, there’s yet more to find out about. Hey, knowing early lets you plan, and going to Gen Con without a plan means you’ll end up missing out on quite a lot of things. Anyway, Syrinscape’s got some really cool things they’ll be doing at the show, and you’re invited to help out.
They say time goes by when you’re having fun. Apparently, I’ve been having the time of my life all week, since it’s just rushed on by. I swear I was writing up the Monday Terrain Corner about an hour ago. But then again, with all the ramp-up to Gen Con keeping me rather busy, it’s no wonder it feels like everything is just rushing on by. Gotta take this weekend to relax a bit and get those last few things ready before heading to the show in the middle of next week.
But that’s as may be. At the moment, we’ve got some more bite-sized stories for you.
In this batch we’ve got: New Pathfinder PC SoundSets from Syrinscape and Another Warthrone approved army list: Legions of Khorne from Warhammer.
The work week rolls on. I’m once more in my Wednesday attire (Kansas State Baseball practice jersey over SIUE t-shirt), which is appropriate, seeing as it is Wednesday. With any luck, your week is going by nicely. Here at the office we’re looking to play some Age of Sigmar this afternoon. It’ll be our first time playing. Don’t worry, we’ll let you know how it went later in the week.
But at the moment, we’ve got a batch of bite-sized stories to give you.
This bundle includes: Age of Sigmar Points Calculator & Patch from One Page Rules, some more installments of The Fiver from The Meeple Mechanic, Abyssal Dwarves and Vampire Counts added to Army Throne from Warthrone, New miniature by Brother Vinni: “Project Limes” Commander, Another World Indiegogo campaign: Stretch Goal Unlocked, War Mage Games to launch their Tournament & Transport Solution this week, Cibo’s Little Dudes Historical Miniatures, Interdimensional horrors invade Meridian Miniatures, Ancient Machinery 30mm and 40mm Round-Lip Bases Available from Tabletop-Art, Titan-forge new Ghostbikes, Celestial Knight preorder from Kabuki Models, and Syrinscape Now Compatible with iPhone and Android Phone.
The work week rolls on. We’ve made it halfway through. Just another couple days and we’ll be blissfully back into the weekend. For some of you, that weekend will include San Diego Comic Con. I… will not be there. That’s probably a good thing. I doubt I’d do well in July in California with what feels like a hundred billion other people all crammed into one place.
Anyway, that aside, we’ve got another batch of bite-sized stories for you.
Today we have: Gods and Monsters previews Herald of Moros art and 3D render, Star Crush Starship Miniatures on Kickstarter, BTR Innovations Let’s Play Dice on Kickstarter, The Shattered Crown previews Stag Rider sculpt, Atlantis Miniatures Live on Kickstarter, Meridian Miniatures unleash Chibi Zombies, Syrinscape Releases New Dragon’s Demand Soundscapes and more, Zombie Dice is back from Steve Jackson Games, Oddzial Osmy’s 3mm and 15mm June Releases Arrive at PicoArmor, and Freeblades Specialty Tiered Dice sets added to Kickstarter rewards.
Tomorrow, Syrinscape and Lone Wolf Development will be teaming up to bring you a unique online resource to help improve your RPG game sessions. Colen McAlister (lead developer for Hero Lab) and Benjamin Loomes (creator of Syrinscape) will be conducting a Google hangout and are inviting all GMs who wish to get more out of their Pathfinder experiences. The main focus will be integrating their various products to help run the games and create an immersive environment for your games.
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.

Syrinscape has another pair of SoundSet Packs in order to enhance your gaming sessions. This time they go to the sci-fi side of things with Mech Battle and Nuclear Submarine. The exciting, explosion-filled Mech Battle is great not just for your rpgs, but could bring a lot of flavor to your sci-fi minis games as well. Meanwhile, the tense feeling of being well below the surface of the ocean, can make you really feel the pressure. That creaking? Yeah, that’s just the hull fighting back a deluge of water that could drown/crush you in an instant. Nothing to worry about.
Don’t have Syrinscape Sci-Fi, but want to try it out? They’re offering a 30-day free trial right now.
