Friday Snippets

The weekend is pretty much upon us. We just need to finish up this afternoon and we’ll be there. Do you have plans? I’m still unsure. Though I think I want to make a cheesecake, because it’s been a while since I’ve made cheesecake. Probably make more strawberry-lime sauce to go with it. Or maybe I’ll do raspberry-lime. I don’t know. But there’s still time to think about it. In the meantime, we gotta fill up on some bite-size gaming stories.

On the platter today we have: West Wind Productions Announces Panzer Mech Kickstarter, Ninja Division Announces Relic Knights 2nd Edition Kickstarter, Wiley Games New Home Of Fistful of Lead, New Animal Explorers From RN Estudio, Khurasan releases M1152 with canvas cover, New Releases From Hitech Miniatures, New Release from Kromlech, and Rectangular Bases on Sale From Micro Art Studio.

TGN Sunday Snippets

While I know that it’s certainly not as hot as it is in, say, Brisbane right now, the 70-degree weather here in Atlanta is making it rough to think that it’s the Holiday Season.
The eggnog and gingerbread cookies (of course homemade), though, are helping.

Speaking of other such bite-size morsels, let’s give you a bit to chew on in terms of some news.

Today’s offerings include: NatEmo Dice Up On Kickstarter, Siren Miniatures Releases Odins Dwarf Mini, War & Empire II Adds 3rd Century Romans To Kickstarter Campaign, and New Norse Shields Available From Puppets War.

Midweek Snippets

The week is continuing along at a fairly standard rate. However, it seems today really put on the accelerator and we’re going full-tilt through the day. It’s already time for the Midweek Snippets post (which is also midway through our broadcast day here, if you’ve never noticed before). Which means I’m halfway through my day as well. Good times.

Anyway, today’s batch of bite-size stories includes: RONE Passes Funding Goal – Posts Gameplay Video, Blackwater Gulch: Savage Beasts Available Now, Xenoshyft Dreadmire Expansion Teased, Buy the Rights Receives the ‘Major Fun Award’, 29K Stretch Goal Unlocked in Kensei Undead Kickstarter, Massive Awesome Reveals The Hulking Kodiak Tactical Heavy Frame For Shattered Earth, Legends of British Steampunk: Roleplay & Wargames Miniatures On Kickstarter, Tabletop-Art Previews Rockabilly Heads, New Warthrone approved army list: Lizardmen from Warhammer, Kromlech New Release – Legionary Chain Swords,

West Wind Productions Launches Legions of Rome Kickstarter

Rome.
Just the name, itself, conjures all sorts of thoughts. More than just a city, Rome was one of the greatest empires the world had seen, famous for turning the Mediterranean into their own, private lake. So much myth and history surrounds Roman culture, much of it focused on the military. And what a military it was. West Wind Productions is looking to bring new 15mm Roman soldiers to your tabletop in their latest Kickstarter campaign.

Tesla Cannon Contest From West Wind Productions Happening Now

Social Media can make or break a company these days. You can’t just have a good website.

West Wind Productions is getting close to 2k likes for their Facebook page. That’s the first step in them giving away a prototype Tesla Cannon for Secrets of the Third Reich.

TGN Sunday Edition: Sunday Snippets

Well, yesterday was quite a day. Very busy getting that Betrayal at Calth review done. For those that might not have seen it yet, spoilers: I think it’s a fun game that, with the announcement of the Specialty Development Studio, I hope gets some expansions in the future. I’d love to see some new scenarios and more aspects added to it. Perhaps tie-ins with other chapters as well. I’d love to see a “Dark Angels vs. Dark Angels” expansion, for example. We’ll just have to wait and see where it goes from here.

Anyway, on to today. It’s time for a quick bite to eat on some bite-sized stories for you.

Today’s servings include: West Wind Productions Bringing Legions of Rome to Kickstarter, Gioconomicon Posts Photo Galleries From European Events, and New WWII Minis Released By Askari Miniatures.

West Wind Productions Halloween Sale Going On Now

As the air gets colder (I’ve been able to have my AC off for a couple weeks now in the apartment) and the leaves start changing (we do have more than just pine trees here in Atlanta, if you can believe it), it’s time to settle ourselves in for Halloween. (As an aside, something I’ve not seen posted a lot is that, for those that do the “daylight savings time” thing, we’re getting an extra hour of Halloween. “Fall back” happens at 2am on Sunday, November 1st. So, we all effectively get an extra hour of Halloween night) The good folks over at West Wind Productions have decided to celebrate with a sale.

Free Worldwide Shipping From West Wind Productions

Ordering direct from a game company via their online store can be a great way to make sure you get the figures you want and give support to said company. However, sometimes the shipping costs can make it such that any money you might’ve saved ordering direct is more-than wiped out. Well, West Wind Productions is here to help with that if you order from them.

Sunday Snippets

I hope your weekend is going well (or has gone well if you are much further East than where I am currently). Mine’s been full of some older movies that were watched just for the hell of it (such as Beavis and Butt-Head Do America, again, because just for the hell of it).

And now it’s Sunday, so that means a day of housework for me. It also means a collection of bite-sized stories for you.

In this batch we have: New Hansom Tank for Empire of the Dead, Midknight Heroes Interview on CPOP, Advanced Deployment Debuts New Acrylic Color and Free Tokens, and Secrets of the Lost Tomb: The Elite Missions Kickstarter Launching in 9 Days.

New Artillery Pieces Released for Forged In Battle

Artillery can be the great equalizer on the battlefield. They might have tanks, but if you’ve got the artillery to take them out quickly and effectively, they’re not much of a problem anymore. Same thing if the enemy has more infantry out there than you do. If you can get some shots placed in the right areas, you can neutralize that advantage. For Forged in Battle players, West Wind Productions has some new artillery pieces available.

West Wind Productions Summer Sale Happening Now

West Wind Productions Launches Secrets of the Third Reich 2nd Edition Kickstarter

Real-world conspiracy theorists love to talk about all the strange things that the Nazis were trying to do during WWII. It’s well-known that Hitler was interested in ancient (sometimes occult) artifacts and pushing the envelope on science. Well, what if all that was even more true and it all worked? Weird War II is a rather popular setting. One of the games many people have played in the setting is West Wind Productions’ Secrets of the Third Reich. Well, now WWP is running a Kickstarter campaign for a 2nd edition of their game.

I’ve got some Joy Division playing (They keep calling me!!) and after I finish typing this up, I’m going to play a couple games so I can write some review articles for the site in the next couple weeks. Should be a good time.

Anyway, the reason we’re here is, of course, because we’ve collected some bite-sized stories for you and present them to you now.

In this batch we’ve got: The Fiver with Ben Pierro on Designing Foodtown Throwdown, Brigade Models Release Soviet Spaceships, Manorhouse Workshop Update #28 – Modular Underground Project – The Box, and Secrets of the Third Reich Second Edition coming to Kickstarter,
