Year 2017

Super-Deluxe Wander Preview

So, unfortunately, I wasn't able to make it out to Adepticon last weekend like I'd've liked. But that's life. But, when you get lemons, make lemonade. I got in touch with the folks over there and they hooked me up with a treasure trove of preview material. We've got character art. We've got stat cards. We've got equipment cards. There's some photos of the new Otter Fisherman, too. It's quite a lot and it all looks awesome.

King's Champion Board Game Up On Kickstarter

Ah, the jousting match. An icon in medieval stories. Two knights, clad in the toughest of armor, armed with massive lances, riding the stoutest of horses go barreling towards each other, looking to knock their opponents down. King's Champion brings that high-impact action to your tabletop. But it's more than just making sure your knight is on the horse. There's lots of prep-work that goes into a joust, so making sure your knight has everything they need is important. The game is up on Kickstarter now.

Friday Snippets

We've made it, everyone. It's Friday (be sure to get your free item from Kroger). With any luck, your weekend will be filled with all things gaming. I'm... gonna take it a bit easy. It's pollen season here in GA, and while I'm not particularly allergic to any of it, it's like getting a face-full of dust or chalk. You cough, you sneeze, your eyes water just because of the amount of particulate in the air. So it's best to just stay inside and fill up on bite-size gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Figure Storage Inserts for Vehicles Available From Sally 4th, Rise to Nobility launches on Kickstarter on April 5th, Go Fish Fitness Kickstarter - Final Week, Bits of War 3rd Anniversary Sale, Purgatory edges closer to completion with new arrivals of models, and April 1st Deals from Advanced Deployment.

Ares Games Releases Battle of Britain Starter Set For Wings of Glory

Ares Games is jumping on the two-player box starter set bandwagon (a good one to be on, if you ask me) with their new Battle of Britain set for Wings of Glory. Take to the skies (figuratively, of course) in either a Spitfire or a Messerschmitt (and if you get a bunch of 'em, you could have a whole mess of Messerschmitts). The box has pretty much everything you need to get playing right away.

Apocalypse the Risen Campaign Setting For 5th Edition and Pathfinder up on Kickstarter

You got your fantasy in my horror!
You got your horror in my fantasy!
Well, you both got your horror and fantasy in my post-apocalyptic!
Apocalypse the Risen is a little of this and a little of that. It's listed as post-apocalyptic fantasy horror. It's set on Earth after society has been utterly destroyed (so, ~28 years from now. ... Kidding!). Demons have gotten a foothold and zombies are roaming the streets. Can you survive in such a horrific land?
The setting book is up now on Kickstarter.

Corvus Belli Fat Yuan Yuan Golden Ticket Event

Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory is one of my favorite movies (I even don't mind Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, to be honest). One of the concepts from the movie that has permeated into "everyday life" is the idea of the Golden Ticket. Well, Corvus Belli has grabbed their top hats and purple coats and is putting Golden Tickets in Fat Yuan Yuan boxes.

First look at pages from The Khanate Return book

Patrol Angis is getting its third book next month (which is only a couple days away. The month... not the book quite yet). The Ion Age wants you to know a bit about what you'll be getting (as well as, y'know, building hype) for it and has posted up some preview pages from The Khanate Return.

Battlefront Features Afrika Korps: Tiger Heavy Tank Platoon For Flames of War

Having big, formidable tanks in your army was a good way to win battles during WWII. Some of the biggest and toughest were Germany's Tigers. They were originally going to be available for the Battle of El Alamein, but didn't quite make it there. They did end up in Tunisia later, though. They can also be in your armies for Flames of War, since they're available from Battlefront.

Megalith Games Releases New Ursapine For Godslayer

Sometimes an old sculpt fora mini doesn't quite cut it anymore. New artists are hired, or older artists' craft gets better. Maybe something about the original made it difficult to mold. Or maybe just the old version got "stale." Whatever the reason, resculpts happen. Megalith Games is going through their old Godslayer figures and updating some of them. One such is the Ursapine, which is available now.

Commands & Colors: Tricorne - The American Revolution Up On Kickstarter

The American Revolution, to say the least, was a pretty big moment in history. Not only did the colonists winning their independence lead to a new country, it kicked off a further set of revolutions. But what would have happened had the British won? Do you think you have the military mind to command the Redcoats or the Army of the Potomac? How would you have handled crossing the Delaware? You can find out in Commands & Colors: Tricorne - The American Revolution, a historical combat game that's up on Kickstarter now.

Thursday Terrain Corner

We still just might make it to the weekend, everyone. Yesterday was certainly a hurdle to get over. Not anything bad (at least on my end of things). Just very busy. Late night at the office working on things, as sometimes happens. But this weekend will hopefully make it all worth it. They usually do. But before we get there, we've still got some work today. At the moment, that's a quick Terrain Corner.

Today we have: Operation Alpha Gaming Mat Available From Pwork Wargame
