Well, quite a week we’re having, aren’t we? But that’s what happens during big shows like GAMA. I’m sure all the surprises aren’t finished, either.

How’s everyone doing today? Ready for the weekend? I think I’m gonna keep mine rather chill, just putting together the last of my friend’s Guild Ball stuff. They’re already assembled. They just need greenstuff work done on ’em (filling in some small gaps, filling in the base slots, stuff like that). Other than that… not much. Plan for Thanksgiving, I guess.

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

Today we have: New D&D Icons of the Realms Miniatures Starter Set Now Available, Steamforged Previews Steamcon/Black Friday Sale, Confrontation Evolution Fan-Made Rules Posted, Wamp releases Master of Roots Bust, Ever wonder what Kriegsspiel Dice looked like?, Super Chibi Round 2 – Reboot Late Pledges now open, Final Days for Portable Paint Station On Kickstarter, New Numidian Infantry Available From Victrix, Spot It!

Outside trying to catch them all? A little of both? Just be sure to hydrate. A group of friends want to wander around downtown Atlanta on Sunday… when it’s supposed to get to 99F out. Whoof.

When people ask me what I’m doing on Sunday, I generally say, “As little as possible.”

French Napoleonic Artillery now shipping From Victrix

Napoleon was an artilleryman. That’s where he got his start in the military. And by many accounts, he was a master at utilizing it on the battlefield. Considering the battle formations still in use (regiments of men in close proximity, marching in steady lines), a well-commanded bit of artillery could take out a rather significant part of the enemy forces. Now Victrix lets you do that on the battlefield by finally releasing their French Napoleonic Artillery pieces.

Free Worldwide Shipping This Week from Victrix

Arguably one of the things people like least about buying figures online is having to calculate shipping cost at the end of your order. You think you’ve only spent $X, but you’ve really spent $Y, and it can be a real pain (tied maybe only with having to wait for your minis, because all of us gamers can tend to be a somewhat impatient lot). Well, for this week, Victrix is eliminating the hassle of shipping costs. Just make an order with them and use the proper code at checkout and Boom! Free Worldwide Shipping!
