And if you’re a master at slinging the colored goop around, you may want to check out the Summer Offensive Painting Competition that Warlord Games is running.

Monday Terrain Corner

It’s Monday. We all knew it was going to happen. Not that we had to like it, of course. That’s not to say I’m mad about it being the start of the work week, but when you’ve had a great weekend, it’s always a bit of an, “… aw” to wake up Monday morning with a whole week ahead of you. At least it’s a long weekend coming up. So there’s that to look forward to. So, as we prep for paperwork, we can also prep for making our gaming tables look good.

Today in the Terrain Corner we have: New Infinity Terrain Tiles From Modiphius, New Cobblestone Center Map From Warzone40k, Frosty Plain Mat Available From Pwork Wargame, Flak and Coastal Bunkers sets Available From Warlord Games, and Heroic Maps – Geomorphs: Basic Dungeon Expansion Now Available.

Monday Terrain Corner

Let’s try to not focus on the fact that it’s Monday and we’re back at the office (even if it what we do is pretty awesome and we enjoy it a lot). Instead, let’s think back to the weekend we had and all the awesome gaming (at least, I hope you had some awesome gaming. I did, and there’s even video proof). Next week’s another chance for gaming. And, of course, if there’s gaming, there may be gaming mats and terrain. So let’s show you some new stuff now and you might be gaming on them next time you play.

Today in the Terrain Corner we have: New Saxon Longship From Sarissa Precision, Heroic Maps Releases Captain Bastide’s Pirate Den, New Industrial Terrain MDF Kits From Pwork Wargame, and New Tropical Swamp Mats From Deep-Cut Studio.

New Winter Bolt Action Releases Available From Warlord Games

Here in the Northern Hemisphere, it’s getting warmer and warmer as the days go by. But, eventually, it’ll start heading the other direction and cold will once more set in. Any army out in the field must be prepared for that eventuality, lest their troops simply freeze out in the field. Warlord Games is now taking orders for some British and American winter troops, as well as a new German tank destroyer.

Monday Terrain Corner

Well, they say that April showers bring May flowers. Well, it rained most of yesterday and it’s supposed to rain for most of today, too. It’s hard to think of a Sunday where it didn’t rain, actually. Ah well, it washes all the pollen out of the air, so I can’t really complain too much. Anyway, as it’s Monday, that means we’ve got a long week ahead of us until we get to the weekend again. But that also gives us time to make our gaming tables look great for next week’s games. Time to help with that.

Today in the Terrain Corner we have: New Buildings for Bolt Action From Sally 4th, Lifeless Land Gaming Mat Available From Pwork Wargame, and New Mechanicum Elevator Available From Tabletop Scenics.

New Bolt Action and Beyond the Gates Antares Releases Available From Warlord Games

Sort of a slow week for Warlord Games. Though, to be fair, with Salute and such, let alone the break-neck pace they were going at, they were bound to have a slower week at some point. This time around, they’ve got a new Japanese tank destroyer for Bolt Action and are now selling individual troopers for the Isorian Phase Squad for Beyond the Gates of Antares.

Monday Terrain Corner

Happy Monday, everyone! It’s a new month. Can you believe that 1/4 of the year is already over? How time flies. I know what really flew by was the weekend. I swear, it was Friday about 45min ago. But this upcoming weekend will hopefully arrive just as quickly, and I’ll be able to get my new character out and take them for a spin. But, before then, we’ve gotta get there, and that means making your tables look good.

Today in the Terrain Corner we have: New Temple Shrine and Walls From Sarissa Precision and New Cobblestone Road Segments From Frontline Games.

Hello, Saturday Eve Eve. At least, that’s what I think of when I think of Thursday. I also start thinking about what I’m going to do over the weekend. Not long ago, I base-coated my Hunter’s Guild.

New Polish Army Releases For Bolt Action Available

The Polish had quite a rough time during WWII. They were the first targeted by Hitler’s Blitzkrieg. And, despite their best efforts, were no match for the German war machine.

This week, we’ve got: 51st State Master Set, Betrayal at Baldur’s Gate, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shadows of the Past, Harry Potter Hogwarts Battle: The Monster Box of Monsters, Arkon, Pockety Odyssey, Noises at Night, Siege Storm, Rambo: the Board Game, Hardback, Voodoo, Palette Swap, Vast: The Crystal Caverns, Pryamids, Kingsburg (2nd Edition), Crossfire, Through the Desert (Euro Classics Edition), Nemesis, Bad Squiddo Games Onna-bugeisha, and Test of Honour: Ninjas of Iga Warband.

Achaean Archers, Libyan Close Fighters + Nubian/Kushite Close Fighters now Available For Hail Caesar

Warlord Games tends to run the whole gamut of times for their games. Hail Caesar is their game that spans the most. Here, you’ve got armies as “modern” as Ancient Rome, but it goes all the way back into almost pre-history. In this case, we’re setting the Wayback Machine for the Bronze Age, with new Achaean archers as well as Libyan and Nubian melee warriors.
