TGN Review: Larceny from Waning Gibbous Games

Waning Gibbous Games just got their Kickstarter campaign for Larceny underway yesterday. They were kind enough to send me an advanced copy of the game to check out and share my thoughts about it with you.



So let's take a look at this new party card game in this installment of TGN Reviews.



The copy that Waning Gibbous (love that name) sent to me is pre-production, so I won't be commenting on the quality of the game contents since what I've got are not the final versions of things, but the gameplay is still the same.

Having played the game for quite some time in playtest and such, I know you all probably think I'm biased, but that's fine, I still honestly love the game and can't wait to get specifically Hadross and Shael Han in my grubby paws.

Canthus Monocycle released at The Ion Age

The Ion Age gets on their bike and rides with the new release of the Canthus Monocycle.



From the release:

With what we know now the loss of the Brightening Star should not have happened but then we were only beginning once more to face an enemy that our long dead forefathers had through banished forever. The Fleet did not arrive in Camarthen space for many months after the loss of the Belkus Labyrinth. It took time to gather the knights and their musters while thinking always of the threat posed by the Marcher Barons. But we did not stand idle. Perhaps we should have. Lectus Bowar led his retinue of a hundred Starvaulters and fifty thousand of Prydia on a rapid strike again the fledgling Khanate. The Brightening Star was one of forty Cassillis class Portable Castles that landed in the vicinity of the ruins of Pelcan city. She was not the only one lost but she was prime in the failure of the containment campaign.

Battlefront features winter Mortar Platoon for Flames of War

Battlefront has more winter wonderland goodness for you with their winter gear Mortar Platoon for Flames of War.



From the article:

During the Winter War (30 November 1939 – 13 March 1940), the 81mm mortar played a vital role due to a lack of field artillery that plagued the Finnish Army throughout the conflict.

The 81mm mortar was able to breakup Soviet infantry attacks due to its surprising effectiveness even in deep snow; due to the sensitive fuses that were fitted to the projectiles. However, field artillery they were not and proved less effective against bunkers and reinforced dugouts.

During the Continuation War (25 June 1941 – 19 September 1944) the number of 81mm mortar in Finnish service peaked but the attrition of war meant a steady decline in the numbers available. Any captured Soviet 82mm mortars were quickly turned against their former owners but the demand for the 81mm mortar was far in excess of what was available.

New paint storage trays available from Sally 4th

Sally 4th knows you gotta move your paints around every now and again and has created trays for it.



From the release:

This week’s new releases from Sally 4th are a set of storage cases for model paints. The cases are fully compatible with our Warchest Figure Storage system, so the same standard or clear Perspex lids can be used with them.

The cases are robust and stackable and allow for a good quantity of paint to be stored in a small space. As you can see from photos, I can’t decide if it is better to store jars and bottles upside down, or the right way up...either option is possible.

All paint storage cases include an appropriate insert which is set at a suitable height for paints being stored. Cases require assembly with PVA wood glue.

Small Paint Pot Case £ 9.50
Designed to hold 24 of the current Games Workshop / Citadel Paints. Also works for Humbrol Enamels.

Medium Paint Pot Case £10.50
Designed to hold 35 Wargames Foundry / Coat d'Arm / Original Citadel Paints.

Paint Bottle Case £11.50
Designed to hold 48 Vallejo or Army Painter bottles of paint.

All Sally 4th Products are available in the USA through Scalecreep Miniatures
