A lot of people feel that working in the gaming industry is like working at Willy Wonka’s factory. I have to say, it’s not quite like that. It’s a job, like every other job. Are there cool things that go on? Certainly. But there’s still lots of things to do. And while you might pick up a game here and there at lunch, it’s mostly just doing regular things. That’s not to say it’s not awesome, mind you. I certainly don’t want to leave it. And if you would still like to join in, well, Talk Wargaming is looking for a new Graphic Artist.
Would you like a job in the gaming industry? Maybe you don’t feel you’re cut out for game design, or you’re not interested in doing warehouse work, and your painting game isn’t quite up to par. There’s still opportunities for you. Talk Wargaming is looking to add to their team, hiring for such positions as Advertising Sales and Content Seeker. If you think you’d be the right gamer for the job, send in your application.
Talk Wargaming posted a review of some of Curious Constructs’ artillery piece models. Go see what they had to say.
From the post:
Curious Constructs range of Field Artillery includes 4 weapon variants each mounted onto a standard weapon carriage. The carriage consists of 4 resin parts, two wheels, an axle and a blast shield. The style of carriage is very synonymous with those from WW1 with its structure being built from metal rather than wood.
Whilst being very basic in it’s appearance it does feature a small amount of tech in the form of a targeting array and monitor built into the blast shield which lends it a slightly sci-fi appearance. Lets look at some of weapons that can be mounted on to the carriage:
Talk Wargaming gives us their thoughts on the Orc SMG Squad from Kromlech in this new review article.
From the post:
Kromlech is one of the top 3rd party producers of everything orky, and for this little review we are taking a closer look at some armored brutes, which will work perfectly for truly ‘ard boyz. The Armored Orc smg squad includes nine armored Orks armed with, surprise, a smg, and some heavy armor plates thrown randomly across their bodies in prefect Ork DIY fashion.
The set contains enough heads and extra face plates, to assemble a varied squad, despite the fact, that the poses are pretty much given, with no great options to change the poses around. Like most, if not all, Kromlech products, they are cast in resin, so be sure to give them a good wash(the soap and water kind), before trying to glue them together. The sculpts are pretty clean, with few mold-lines in need of removal, which makes prepping them for painting a breeze.
Talk Wargaming sat down with Tim Kline from Gangfight Games to talk about Mechadrome.
From the interview:
Who doesn’t love Mechs? The idea of taking control of a giant walking death machine is sure appeal to many. With recent titles such as Titanfall and Transformers (not strictly mechs but they are big, mechanical and killy) helping to build their fan base it seems to be the perfect time to bring them to the Wargaming table.
This is where Mechadrome comes in, a 28mm tabletop game which pits rival teams of Mechs against each other in an arena style setting. Mechadrome, by Gangfight Games, is currently receiving funding via Kickstarter and I (PH) caught up with Tim Kline (TK) to find out more about the game.
Talk Wargaming has a conversation with Folding Gaming Tables creator Jeffrey Jones about his Kickstarter project.
From the interview:
If you saw our This Week on Kickstarter article from last week, then you may already be aware of a project by Jeffrey Jones which is currently seeking funding. His Folding Gaming Tables offer a versatile and sturdy alternative to standard fixed gaming tables. The perfect solution to those who do not have the space for a large sized permanent gaming tale.
I caught up with Jeffrey to discuss his project in some more detail.
