Well, while it seems like we dodged one bullet here in Georgia the other day, only getting some rain. It’s looking tonight like we might get a bit of accumulated precipitation. Though considering tomorrow it’s supposed to get to 38 and the day after it’s supposed to be sunny and 51, I’m not really worried about it.
I can’t really say the same for the rest of GA. They seem like they’re going freaking nuts. But waddyagonnado?
I’m just looking forward to tomorrow when I’m getting my next tattoo. *squee with excitement!*

Before then, though, we need to get you some bite-sized stories. So let’s go ahead and do that.

The week is coming to an end. Hopefully if you were at Gen Con last weekend, you’ve managed to get back into the “regular swing” of things. Just yesterday I was able to get through the last few lingering e-mails that’d backed up over the week I was away. Now to cruise into a nice weekend of… well, I plan on cooking. Red beans & rice, maybe some Italian beef… I want to make a pumpkin pie with squash mousse as well… We’ll see how much of that I actually get through. Anyone that wants to come over and taste-test is welcome.

We continue on with the post-Gen Con week’s work. Though I was able to keep up with a lot of things, obviously, things are going to fall behind in some areas. I’m almost out of the mountain of e-mails I’d gotten over the weekend. If I’ve not replied to you yet, don’t worry, I will. There’s just a lot to sort through.

Midweek Snippets/Terrain Corner

With the drive to Indy yesterday, I obviously didn’t have much of a chance to make posts (and no, trying to type in the car all day was not an option. I would’ve gotten all the carsick). So today I bring you both the Midweek Snippets and today’s Terrain Corner together again in one place.

Friday, glorious Friday. We’ve once more made it to that glorious day. The weekend stretches ahead of us after a workday like an infinite sea of possibility… Ok, maybe I’m getting a bit dramatic. But hopefully your weekend will include some gaming of some sort. Even if not gaming, itself, then putting together some models or painting or some sort of hobby-related activity. I think I’m going to work on a couple more DreamForge kits I’ve had for a bit that really need to put together.

But that’s the future. The present is a set of bite-sized stories we’ve collected together from the past couple days.

Review Roundup

Hey there everyone. Welcome to Saturday. Hopefully you’re having a good day. If you missed it, be sure to check out the Age of Sigmar rules that Games Workshop posted.
If you’re in the US and you’re celebrating Independence Day, be sure to be careful with those fireworks.

I’m taking a moment from the cooking that I’m doing. What am I making? Well, I’ve got hamburgers and hot dogs that I’ll have later. I’m going to make some crawfish gumbo. On the sweet side of things, I’m making cheesecake with strawberry glaze and then chip’n’mint cookies.

But that’s as may be. At the moment, we’ve got our Review Roundup.

We’re halfway there, ladies and gentlemen. Halfway to the weekend. If you haven’t started making plans, now would be a good time. For those of you in the US, the 4th of July is Saturday. I’m sure cookouts will abound. And if you’re at one, why not bring along a game or two to play? There’s plenty of party games that would be most welcome at just about any gathering.
For me? I’m going to keep things low-key this weekend. I had two rather busy weekends in a row. So this weekend I’m going to stay at home and cook. What am I going to cook? … I’ve not figured that out yet. Suggestions would be welcome (and any accompanying recipes also welcome).

But as for right now, it’s time for some bite-sized stories.

This batch includes: Fury is funded with 24 day left, Some More Installments of The Fiver from The Meeple Mechanic, New 32mm Resin bases (Tomb, Urban & Sci-fi Deck) from Dark Art Miniatures, Armorcast’s 4th Annual Cinematic Effects Contest is Here, Apex TDBG Expansion Kickstarter is now EU Friendly, Club Fantasci Editorial: Kickstarter Press Releases and Free Promotion, Old Dominion Gameworks posts Post Captain Bonus Ship files, Vending Bot free for July at The Ion Age, and Bullets & Brains Tokens Now Available from Sally 4th.

Welcome back again to Friday. It’s been a busy week here, catching up from all the things after the CMON Expo. But we’re all back into a stable flight pattern, I hope. I know I am.

Bring on the Thac0 tables.

Before that, though, we’ve got some bite-sized stories we want to share with you.

Patrol Angis 15mm Wargame Rules pre-order offers at The Ion Age

A lot of times, you’ll see a set of minis and think, “Wow, those are cool. Is there a game that goes with them?” and when you find out there’s not, there’s that twang of, “awww, damn.” Sure, you could use the set of minis for another set of rules you might know about it as proxies or stand-ins. But there’s just something extra when you can use the minis for a game that’s designed to use them. Well, The Ion Age is now taking pre-orders for Patrol Angis, a 15mm sci-fi minis wargame that’ll use their line of minis.

You’ve survived another week! You deserve something special. You know, you’ve worked hard. Take the next two days off, on me. (Note: offer only valid if you work Monday-Friday. I don’t need anyone messaging me saying I got them fired over the weekend. 😛 ) Hopefully you have some gaming action lined up. My D&D got moved to next weekend. So this weekend I’m getting my tattoo finally colored in. I’m rather excited. I’ve been wanting to finish the piece for months now.

For those that don’t know, I’ve got the werebear artwork, done by the legendary and world-famous Heath “BA” Foley, from Blackwater Gulch on my upper right arm. Yeah, it’s a bear and has gaming ties. What sort of game-related tattoos do the rest of you have? Share yours and there may be a special prize in it for one lucky commenter. (do try and keep photos work-appropriate, as much as possible, please)

Anyway, on to the bite-sized stories we’ve collected in the past couple days.
