The Campaigner Issue 14 Now Available

Nothing better than sitting in a comfy chair with a warm cup of cocoa and reading about some gaming on a cold, winter’s evening. Granted, it’s only getting down to like the 40s overnight right now here in Atlanta, and I don’t have a “comfy chair” in my apartment (I do have a nice sofa, though), but that doesn’t mean you won’t find me with a cup of cocoa and reading about gaming. One of the things I can read is The Campaigner Issue 14, which is now available for your downloading and reading pleasure.

It’s another Guns ‘N’ Roses Weather Day here in GA. We’ve had one just about every day so far of this month. I’m certainly happy about that. Though I’ve never lived in the PNW, I’ve always sort of wanted to, and if popular media is anything to go by, it’s like this 365 days of the year. Listening to Soundgarden and Nirvana when it’s like this just feels… appropriate.
Though it does mean that glue is taking longer to set as I try and put together this Betrayal at Calth set. But waddyagonnado?

In the meantime, we’ve got a small batch of bite-sized stories for you today.

They include: There is still time to be a part of The Campaigner Survey 2015, Epic Generator Season 2 is Released, Deraj Studios Launches Slavic Fantasy Miniatures, and Aegis Studios releases Armory 1 under the Hero Kids Compatible License.

In today’s batch of bite-sized stories we have: The Campaigner Survey 2015, Oddzial Osmy’s 3mm September Releases Arrive at PicoArmor – Including the B17, Oldhammer gets a new figure range from stalwarts of the gaming Industry, Creature College in its last week on Kickstarter, and Forgestarter Medieval Russians started.
