There's some new releases available for you Warmachine and Riot Quest players out there from Privateer Press. The new Oblivion Campaign box is out, letting you continue along the storyline crushing Western Immoren, along with the new Agathon Infernal Master figure. Riot Quest has a trio of new releases, letting you build up your arena fighting force.

Some people are moving into new spots over in the Catalyst Game Labs offices. They have named John Helfers will move into the role of Executive Editor. Meanwhile, Ray Arrastia has been promoted to full BattleTech Line Developer. And a line that we've not heard from in a while is getting a bump as well with Bryn Bills taking over as Line Developer for Leviathans, which will have a Kickstarter relaunch in the summer of 2020.

There's many different Space Marine chapters in the 40k universe, each with their own combat strategies, strengths, focus in doctrine, and choice for equipment when hitting the battlefield. If you're looking to diversify your army a bit from just your average Marine force, you can now order two new codices from Games Workshop. You can put your name down to get either Raven Guard or Iron Hands (or both, I suppose) books now.

Infinity Defiance will take players into the Infinity universe in a whole new way. A fully cooperative dungeon crawl board game, letting players take on the role of heroes exploring around through the hidden-away places of the Human Sphere. But just what will the game entail? How will it work? What's inside the box? Get the answers to many of those questions in this new preview that Corvus Belli has posted.

It's a Star Wars party over at Fantasy Flight with their latest batch of releases. For those that've been looking forward to ships new and old for X-Wing, the fifth wave is now available. Those that want to get a little bit more down and directly involved with your Star Wars experience, there's the new Gadgets and Gear sourcebook for the RPG. Heck, you could use the latter to RP fixing damage to your ship that you played in the former. All of these are available now online and down at your LGS.

Stranded here on Earth, the aliens are slowly trying to get fuel for their ship. In the meantime, tensions are high as they're restricted to a certain area. But how will humans and aliens continue to get along? That's for you to figure out in the District 9 board game from Weta Workshop that's up on Kickstarter now.

If you had the ability to terraform a planet, how would you make it look? Tons of forests? Giant oceans? Rolling plains? Soaring mountains? Well, in Myraclia, you get to create your own planet. Well, not just your own. Others are looking to create their own paradise as well. But, in the end, only one's vision of the planet will be achieved. This new terraforming game is up on Kickstarter now.

Winter is coming.

I realize that's the tag line for an entirely different fantasy world, but it's what's going on here, too. Free League Publishing is running a Kickstarter campaign for The Bitter Reach, their new (and massive) expansion for the Forbidden Lands RPG. What does it have in its 200+ pages? New rules, new monsters, new encounters, and an entire campaign set in the cold reaches of a new region. The new book is up on Kickstarter now.

It's Friday the 13th. It's also a full moon.

Be careful out there, everyone. O,o

In the meantime, I'm going to hunker in my bear cave and munch on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Elder Wood Running Spellbook Minis Dice and Miniatures Boxes Kickstarter, Handmade Zodiac Gemstone Dice Up On Kickstarter, Bloodstone Dice Up On Kickstarter, Vacant Realms Steampunk and Fantasy Miniatures Up On Kickstarter, and 5mm Metal Micro Dice Up On Kickstarter.

When you want to fill up your day with gaming information, a gaming magazine is a great way to do it (besides coming here, of course). "But I've already read all the issues I have!" I hear you exclaim. Well, Game Nite Magazine just posted up issue 39. So, there you go. As always, it's filled with awesome articles and it's free. So, why not go grab yourself a copy?

For protection? Protection from what? Ze Germans?
*looks at the new releases from Battlefront for Flames of War*
Oh, s---. Ok, maybe "Ze Germans" are here already. You can pick up some new reinforcements for your German D-Day forces now over in the Battlefront webshop or at your local LGS.

Do you look around at civilization and go, "pfft, I could do better"? Well, now's your chance to prove it in Hadara. Will you focus on war? Religion? Philosophy? The Arts? Probably a bit of all of the above in some form. In this article, Z-Man Games takes a dive into Hadara and shows of just how building your own civilization works.

So, Pathfinder 2nd Edition's been out for a little over a month. You've maybe thought about picking it up, but haven't been sure. And if you did, where would you start? Or maybe you're a GM looking to get a group interested in this new version. Where do you begin? Well, Paizo is here to help. They've posted up a free-to-download Demo Adventure to help people get right into the game.

I mean, I like rain. I like storms. But I'm not really thrilled when they cause huge amounts of damage, I.E. - become Ruinstorms. But that's just what you're getting to order from Forge World this week. There's new Ruinstorm Daemon Brutes that you can get for your 40k Horus Heresy armies. Place your orders now.

Pretty much all of us carry around a little supercomputer in our pockets. We've got stats that show that most of you are reading this sentence on a portable supercomputer now. Why not integrate them into the party games that you play when you get together with friends? That's the thought behind Game of Phones, a party game that's been redesigned and is back up on Kickstarter now.
