Graven Games takes a look at some of the field artillery pieces from Kromlech in this new review article.

From the post:

It’s time to bring out a couple of big guns from Kromlech in today’s review. We’re building the Orc Field Cannon, the Orc Howitzer, and also some Goblin Artillery Crew to go with them. These kits fit nicely into the WW2 Orc theme that Kromlech produces a lot of miniatures for, but we also think they’ll make great alternative models in a Warhammer 40k Ork army (as Mek Gunz with Gretchin Crew), or in another post-apocalyptic setting.

Also, there’s a bunch of interviews at the end if you’re into that sort of thing. Ninja Division, Hawk Wargames, Wyrd, and of course, Privateer Press all have nuggets of wisdom to share.

From the announcement:

In conjunction with the move to the new venue, development has begun behind the scenes as we prepare to kick AdeptiCon 2015 planning into full gear. One of the more significant changes in the coming year will be regarding how we handle demos, event games and smaller tournaments. In the past, space restrictions forced us to micromanage these events so that they all fit within the hotel and made sense with regards to the schedule. We will no longer have this problem at the Renaissance Schaumburg Convention Center…we have the space…and we need more games! We are looking for a few good game masters to run demos, historical events, specialty games, board games, and anything else that makes sense!

Scenes of Chance keeps rising up in funding over on Kickstarter. Go check 'em out. They've still got just under 2 weeks left in their campaign.

Scenes of Chance campaign

From the campaign:

So first off a little restructure of the stretch goals. We removed the d20 at $10,000 because people didn't really want anymore dice in their collection so I changed it to more icons and variables which is probably a lot better of a reward anyway.

We're about to hit $6,000 which will unlock the second backer voted image. Most likely tomorrow we will send out an update with a link to a survey containing choices to vote on for new scenes and icons.The majority of the comments we received all seemed to want a town scene as a place to start an adventure. So the first backer voted scene I didn't really think needed to be voted on and picked it based off the comments.

Their Kickstarter will be beginning on Monday.

From them to you:

This is the Alpha set of the Broken Contract rules. As an Alpha rule set it is expected that there will be inconsistencies, typos, mistakes, and the like. I'm releasing it to the world so you can find all of those so they can be fixed. I think I've raised enough awareness about the game that I should be able to get some solid feedback. With the Kickstarter looming in 5 days it seemed the perfect time to capitalize on the excitement and urgency so here it is. I strongly encourage everyone to use the comments section or to join the conversation on boardgamegeek. Thanks and enjoy!

Battlefront knows that playing a Western-front WWI game wouldn't be anything without trenches. As such, they're coming out with their Trenchline System Battlefield in a Box set.

Trenchline System

From the website:

Perhaps the most iconic symbol of World War I is the trench. Starting from simple slit trenches and developing into elaborate trench networks such as the Hindenburg Line, the science of entrenchment was king of the battlefield. As well as protecting the front line troops trenches link with the reserve area, allowing for reinforcements to get forward quickly and safely.
