It's Wyrds tradition to book-end the work week with previews. Mondays we get some new Malifaux artwork. Friday we get a The Other Side preview. Well, I've got my Friday shirt on. So that must mean it's time for a The Other Side preview. And Wyrd's right on time to give it to us. This time around, it's the grotesque Breachlings.

Friday Snippets

And here we are again. Friday: threshold to the weekend. I'm sure many of you are gearing up for a weekend of gaming, possibly starting as early as when you get off of work. I'm looking to spend tomorrow at the LGS, hopefully getting in some games of Guild Ball and Bushido. But whatever your gaming vice might be, it's best to top off with some bite-sized gaming stories before diving in.

Today on the platter we have: THEO - The Hobby Equipment Organizer Up On Kickstarter, New Sisters of Eternal Mercy Available From Raging Heroes, New Cobblestone Bases Available From Tabletop-Art, New Flocking/Basing System Available From Fontline Games, New 28mm Romanian 75mm Resita Anti-tank Gun M1943, Open Game Master Looking To Bring Drop-In D&D To The Masses, and It's Bomber Month at PicoArmor.

Z-Man Games Posts New Pandemic Legacy Season 2 Preview

The thing that sets Legacy-style games apart from others is that the game will literally change each time you play. What you do in one session will have an effect on the next. Card packs will be opened. Other cards will be removed. The game board will be altered. People went crazy over this aspect of Pandemic Legacy Season 1. But what can we expect to see in the upcoming Pandemic Legacy Season 2? Well, Z-Man games gives you a bit of insight in this preview.

Warlord Games has a whole slew of new Japanese releases for Konflikt '47. If you want some new units, you can get the new Ghost Attack Squad (not actual ghosts, nor do they attack ghosts) or the Battle Exoskeleton Squad. Want something with a bit more armor?

Trials of Frostgate Scenario Available For Descent

One thing about making a game have a digital app component is that a company can release a new scenario and simply make it available for purchase through the app. You can then buy it and play it basically instantly. Such is the case with Trials of Frostgate. It's a new scenario for Descent that's available through the Road to Legend app. Players will have to pass the four challenges that will test every aspect of their being. The reward is a sweet animal tattoo. I know I'd be up for that!

New Transports Available to Order From Forge World

I tend to repeat myself around here. It's just in my nature, really (you should hear my dad tell the same story a dozen times). Two things I've often said is that walking to battle is for suckers. Also, the Legio Custodes have some of the best janitorial equipment I've ever seen. This post combines the two, as they are getting a new Assault Dropship. There's also the Imperial Arvus Lighter. It's a transport ship, too. Not something to light your cigarettes (and whiskey and wild, wild women... Whoah, got off on a tangent there). Both of these are available to order now from Forge World

Steamforged Previews Alloy For Guild Ball

You might think that a team like the Blacksmith's Guild would have all the subtlety of... well... a gigantic hammer smashing into a near-molten-hot piece of metal. "Ninja" might be the last thing on your mind. However, the Blacksmith's Guild knows that just running headlong into the enemy at full speed might not always be the best strategy. As such, they've got Alloy, their "sneaky" Apprentice. Check out how they work in this preview.

Plaid Hat Games Posts October Release Dates

We're just a couple days away from October. That means a whole new set of releases coming soon from Plaid Hat Games. But what, exactly, is coming out? And when will it be available? All your questions will be answered. (well... those two questions, at least... But not, like, anything really metaphysical... You're gonna have to go elsewhere for those answers)

Corvus Belli Previews The Dice From Aristeia

I think it's safe to say that most miniatures games out there use dice of some kind. Sure, there are those that go for some other method, but the fairly tried-and-true method of randomization comes from little plastic polyhedrons bouncing across the table. Aristeia is no different. But Corvus Belli has decided not to use the D20s that fans of Infinity know. Instead, they've got special dice with unique symbols on them. In this preview, we get a look at the different types of dice and what those symbols mean.

The next stage of it is upon us. They are looking to fund a new starter set for the game over on Kickstarter. If you've been wanting to get involved with the game, now would be a good time to join in.
