Wyrd Monday Preview - Fermented River Monks

I love old kung-fu movies. 36th Chamber of Shaolin. The Five Deadly Venoms. Heroes of the East. Challenge of the Masters. Half a Loaf of Kung-Fu. And, of course, Drunken Master. As such, I love when characters like those from the movies make it into minis games. Well, Wyrd has some new ones coming to Malifaux in the form of the Fermented River Monks.

Warhammer Quest Adventure Card Game now Available From Fantasy Flight Games

Dungeons. They're full of treasure. We all know that. As adventurers, we want to go diving in after that treasure. Of course, it's not simply "enter dungeon. Get treasure."

That's where your friends come in. And that's where the Warhammer Quest Adventure Card Game comes in.

West Wind Productions is looking to bring new 15mm Roman soldiers to your tabletop in their latest Kickstarter campaign.

Monday Terrain Corner

Well, for those of us here in the US, it's back to the "normal work week" for a few. Thanksgiving was great. I did make soup afterward. I've got quite a lot of it. Some will be frozen. Some will be given away. Much will be consumed over the next week. Should stave off any early-winter illnesses I might encounter.

TGN Saturday Edition: Review Roundup

Hey everyone,
I hope you made it through Black Friday alright. I had Thanksgiving 2: Thank Harder here at the bear den. Made myself another turkey and side-dishes and enjoyed a relaxing day.

But that's as may be, it's time for some reviews. Let's get into it.

Today we have articles on: Magic the Gathering Arena of the Planeswalkers, Dirty Tactics Toolbox for Pathfinder, Battle Foam P.A.C.K Molle Accessories, Mafia de Cuba, Porta Nigra, Risk: Star Wars 2015 Edition, Flip City, Xia: Legends of the Drift System, and Doomtown Reloaded.
