Midweek Snippets

Wednesday already. Granted, for me, it’s usually the day of the week that takes the longest. Not that there’s anything particular terrible that happens on Wednesdays. It’s just the day that seems to go on the longest. Gotta make it up and over that hill and then we can slide back down toward the weekend. “Step by step, you climb the mountain,” such as it were. But when climbing mountains, you need to bring along provisions. In this case, it’s bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: New Cross-Shaped Clear Bases Available From Sally 4th, Dog Centaur Minis Available From Punga Miniatures, Wizards and Lizards Paper Minis Available From Okumarts Games, New Space Corsair Mini Available From Brother Vinni, Overrunners Sci-Fi Minis and Vehicles Up On Kickstarter, and Big Fat Panda Running Gaming Protection Components Kickstarter.

Quite a blustery day here in Atlanta for the middle of the week. Despite being the first day of spring, it seems as though winter is looking to hang on for a little longer. So, even though there’s more light than there is dark now (at least, here in the Northern Hemisphere), we should still stock up on bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Okumarts Games Releases Four Sets of Super-villain Paper Miniatures, Gravetides Fantasy Fleet Coming to Kickstarter, Afro-Zombie Launching Steam Girls 75mm Minis Kickstarter Soon, Stars Reach 2 Kickstarter Running Now, Dark Art Studios Running Devil’s Dungeon II Kickstarter, Elder Dice: Unspeakable Tomes Up On Kickstarter, and Really Useful Box Storage For Sails of Glory Ships Released.

But while I go tie my car to a tree and watch the neighborhood kids go sailing by, let’s nosh on some bite-sized gaming stories.

The week continues along. It’s been a quick one for me, it seems. Plus, I’m book-ended by some cool new stuff. Monday, I got new Tails of Equestria stuff. By Friday, my latest order from Kraken Dice should be in. So… woo!
But while waiting by the mailbox for my new shinies to come in, I need to snack on some bite-size gaming stories. There’s enough to share, so have a nibble for yourself.

Today on the platter we have: New Releases Available From Advanced Deployment and New Legionary Twin Thunder Gun Available From Kromlech.

Fridaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!
Gateway to the weekend. AND! I placed an order for some new dice yesterday. So you know I’m stoked. When dice sets sell out in a matter of minutes, and you manage to get some, it’s a pretty good feeling. Still riding high on that wave today.
#NoSuchThingAsTooManyDice
Anyway, as I wait for those to come in, I think I’ll snack on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: New Starship Bases Available From Tabletop-Art, Really Useful Star Wars X Wing Storage Available From Sally 4th, and Zangrahel by Ignacio Fernández Ríos Available From Industria Mechanica.

Still working on getting better from this cold. It always seems to take me longer to get back to 100% than it does days that I’m actually feeling sick. It’s like, “Ok, these are the days I’m definitely sick” and then a week of, “I’m hoping this is the last day of this garbage.”
I’m starting to get my appetite back, though. So I’m going to chow down on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today in the platter we have: Treasure Towers Dice Towers Up On Kickstarter, Now available – New Ancestral Ruins bases From Tabletop-Art, Necronomicon Dice Up On Kickstarter, and New Nurgle Trays from Battle Foam: Great Unclean One.

The week continues along. We’re halfway to the end. Just gotta put our heads down and power through. Not that the week’s been terrible, mind you. Just busy. Lots of things on my metaphorical plate before I get lots of things on my actual plate next week. But before we can get there, let’s snack on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: New Star Trek Dice Available From Modiphius, New Female Military Figure Available From Brother Vini, X-Case Clear Expandable Miniatures Display and Transport Up On Kickstarter, Conan: Gamemaster Screen + Gamesmaster Toolkit Available From Modiphius, and Arcane Scrollworks: First Level Spell Scrolls up On Kickstarter.

It’s Friday! Gateway to the weekend.
I’m… just kinda chilling. Yeah… just chilling. Not gonna really go anywhere. Not really gonna do anything special. Just… chill. I think it’s a good idea to do that occasionally. And this weekend, it’s what I want/need.
But that’s not to say we can’t still munch on some bite-sized gaming stories.

On the platter today we have: Mini Duels’ 40k Tournament Tray and Painting Station Up On Kickstarter, The ‘Spirit Of’ Extinction Dice Up On Kickstarter, Vault of Storage Up On Kickstarter, Oddzial Osmy’s 3mm October Releases Arrive at PicoArmor, and 30% Off Fall Sale At TinMan.

Alright. Playtime’s over. All the spooky kiddie stuff is done with. Time to get the real holiday prep going. Thanksgiving is a mere 4 weeks and 1 day away. This is not a drill. Prep work starts now. I need to start collecting together gear and ingredients for all the fantastic things I’m going to be making. Best to sample all the bite-sized gaming stories currently available.

Today on the platter we have: Aenor Minis New Releases Available To Order and Cargo Bay X-Wing Transport System Up On Kickstarter.

We’re halfway there, everyone. The work-week is half-done and it’s getting ever-closer to the weekend. Of course, I’m excited for that. I’m hoping to get in some gaming up at the LGS. Trying to get a whole group together for some Guild Ball. Also starting to make Thanksgiving plans, because that’s a thing I do. Speaking of bite-sized goodies, let’s dig into our regular fare of bite-sized gaming stories.

Halfway there.
We’re halfway to getting back to the weekend. Methinks I’m going to take it easy this weekend. I found out my LGS is going to be absolutely packed with several events running for games I don’t really play, so I’ll probably just veg at my place. I could use a relaxing couple of days, anyway. Though it does mean I still need to wait to break in my custom Guild Ball mat (more on that tomorrow. Stay tuned). In the meantime, I’m feeling a bit peckish, so how about noshing on some bite-sized gaming stories?

Today on the platter we have: New Options For Really Useful Box Storage System From Sally 4th, Statuesque Starport Able Spacewomen Now Available, New 3mm C-130 Hercules at PicoArmor, New Orc Hand Grenades Available From Kromlech, Impact! Miniatures D3 to D30 Dice Chains on KickStarter now with Cotton Candy dice, 3D Printable Tanks Up On Kickstarter, and Fantasy Stock Art & RPG Minis Up On Kickstarter.

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.

We’re already halfway through the week. Having Monday off certainly helps with that. But as we continue our way through the week, I know I could still use a bit of a pick-me-up. So I’m going to nosh on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Sally 4th Releases Combat Patrol: South Pacific Supplement

WWII was truly a global conflict. While the various European forces were making their way back and forth across that continent, and Rommel and Monty were dueling it out in Africa, the islands of the Pacific saw plenty of fighting as well. Sally 4th is now letting you recreate those battles with their South Pacific supplement for Combat Patrol. It is available now. But it’s not just the supplement that’s new. There’s also a new deck box and some terrain.

If there’s one thing I can use this week, it’s a pick-me-up. As you saw from this morning’s Podcast Roundup post, it’s been quite a couple of days since Expo over the weekend. I need to energize with some bite-sized gaming stories.

Bombshell Minis Previews Lunchbox Edition of Counterblast

Counterblast, by Bombshell Minis, looks to recapture the retro-feeling of 50s and 60s sci-fi. One aspect of that era that they’ve not yet tapped into is the bits of memorabilia that goes along with it. Well, they’re looking to rectify that with their Lunchbox Edition of Counterblast. More than just a cool carrying case, it’s a starter set that’ll get you and an opponent gaming in no time.

Friday!
Woo!
*runs around with arms over my head*
Yeah, I’m excited for the weekend. Some of the toy soldiers I ordered a couple weeks ago finally came in at the LGS (yes, it’s Guild Ball stuff) and so I’m planning on being there bright and early at 10am when they open to get ’em. I hope you’ve got somewhat similar plans. But if we’re going to be at the gaming shop good and early, we need to munch on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Well, we’re halfway there, everyone. Next weekend is as far ahead of us as the previous one is behind us. Just gotta power through another 2.5 days and we’ll be back at Saturday.

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.

This has been some week. New office. Bunch of visitors the the office. And with GAMA next week, I’ve had several late nights working on (redacted). But, yesterday I got to watch the preview video for (redacted). So that was cool. But yeah, I’ll be very happy when that show happens and all the announcements are made. With all that going on, stocking up on some bite-size gaming stories is simply a necessity. So let’s get to it.

It has been a busy week.
Work has been full of time working on (redacted). I can’t wait until I can tell you all about it. Other than that, I’m making pizza tonight. And by that, I mean I made my own sauce from scratch, and the dough ball that will be the crust is currently in the fridge, slowly rising. It’ll be brought out when I get home. The only thing I didn’t do was cure my own bacon, grind my own Italian sausage, or make my own mozzarella cheese… though I could possibly do those first two, and might at some point. And as for tomorrow, it’s Board Game Day at the Milton Library, where I’ll be playing Guild Ball and Fujian Trader. Hopefully you have your own gaming plans lined up. With all that going on, it’s best to load up on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today we have: Ancestral Ruins Bases 20x20mm and 25x25mm Now Available From Tabletop-Art, Arcane Arts gets a face lift, Zen Bins Destiny Storage Trays Up On Kickstarter, Titan-forge Launches Dragon Empire Kickstarter, More Info Posted About Trollkins Indiegogo Campaign, New Ultimate Barrage Template from Pyrkol, Desert Basing Kit Available From Gale Force Nine, Khurasan releases Oceanic Republic NF range, and New Weekend Promo from Kromlech.

We’re halfway there, everyone. Midway point of the week. The weekend’s coming ever-closer. Hopefully you have some sort of gaming plans scheduled. I mean, it’s the weekend. Don’t want to just be sitting at home doing nothing (though, actually, there’s something to be said about that from time to time, too). Well, no matter what you do, we need to finish up this week first. So let’s get some energy via bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Brigade Models Release Updated Japanese Aeronef, Black Earth 28mm tabletop wargame launches on IndieGoGo in February, Purgatory is entering the final 2 weeks of Pledge Manager, Krakon Games Kickstart their Scum & Smuggler characters, Latest Releases Available From Dark Sword Miniatures, New Legionary Releases From Kromlech, Ludus Magnus Studio Announces Sine Tempore Board Game, Tabletop Tyrant Miniatures Cases Up On Kickstarter, New Releases Available From Victoria Miniatures, Khurasan releases 15mm T-64BV Tank, and Hardwood deck boxes with Illuminated artwork on Kickstarter.

How’s everyone doing today? Ready for the weekend? I think I’m gonna keep mine rather chill, just putting together the last of my friend’s Guild Ball stuff. They’re already assembled. They just need greenstuff work done on ’em (filling in some small gaps, filling in the base slots, stuff like that). Other than that… not much. Plan for Thanksgiving, I guess.

But as for right now, it’s time to nosh on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today we have: New D&D Icons of the Realms Miniatures Starter Set Now Available, Steamforged Previews Steamcon/Black Friday Sale, Confrontation Evolution Fan-Made Rules Posted, Wamp releases Master of Roots Bust, Ever wonder what Kriegsspiel Dice looked like?, Super Chibi Round 2 – Reboot Late Pledges now open, Final Days for Portable Paint Station On Kickstarter, New Numidian Infantry Available From Victrix, Spot It!

Not sure why, but this week’s been a time enigma. I woke up this morning going, “wow, already Wednesday!” But since I’ve been here at the office, it’s been the exact opposite. “How is it only 10am? I feel like I’ve been here forever!” What might help is noshing on some bite-sized gaming stories.

And we have the week continuing along. Seems this one’s going rather slowly, if you asked me. Earlier today, I looked at the clock and went, “How is it only just after 10am? I’ve been here in the office for the past 17 hours!” Note: I’d not actually been here 17 hours at that point. Just seemed like it. Perhaps snacking on some bite-sized gaming stories will help out.

Today on the platter we have: Krakon Games Running Frills & Fauna Kickstarter, Gioconomicon Posts Photos From Spiel 2016, On Target Green & Red Lasers For Line of Sight On Kickstarter, Mojo Tray System: Modular Transport On Kickstarter, New releases from Terrible Kids Stuff – First half of October 2016, New Condition Markers, Melee Widgets and Base Inserts from Advanced Deployment, The Roots of Magic: Students of Sorcery Kickstarter coming in November, Divine Art Playing Cards Relaunched on Kickstarter, and Devils Dungeon Kickstarter – Milestone Unlocked.

Wednesday already? This week sure seems to be moving along. That’s very much not a complaint, mind you. I’ve got board game day coming up this Saturday. We’re also going to be starting our new D&D game. So I’m very much ready for it to be Saturday. But if I want to keep up this pace, I’d better refuel on some bite-sized gaming stories.

New Season II Mascots Available For Guild Ball

If you went to Gen Con and you play Guild Ball, you had a chance to pick up your Season II mascots while at the show. I know I picked up a Wrecker and a Tentacles while there.

Four of them are now available over in the Steamforged webshop, along with a new carrying case.

And I’m sitting in my hotel room, sorting e-mails, replying to e-mails, and typing up these posts. I hope you all appreciate it. 😉 😛
Anyway, seeing as it is Wednesday (though it certainly doesn’t feel like it, at least to me), it’s time for some midweek snippets. I know I need to stock up on some bite-sized gaming stories before the hurricane of activity that’ll happen over the next several days.

Hey everyone.
Well, I’m back home again. What? You didn’t realize I wasn’t sitting in the office as usual this week? That’s because TGN is always in my heart and I take it wherever I go.

Anyway, travel can really take the energy out of you, so let’s stock back up with some bite-size gaming stories.

It’s a hive of activity here in the office. We’ve got a lot of extra people in the office in town for the Expo this weekend. And it sounds like they’re building something in the warehouse (which is right behind my desk). Everything for the show is in “Final check” phase. That means utter chaos, of course, but in a good way. 😛
In the meantime, let’s fill up on some bite-sized gaming stories, shall we?

A New Team Bus: A Review of the Guildmate Tray From Tectonic Craft Studios

When hanging out at the LGS, whether it’s during a tourney or just going between games, we all have various ways of transporting our armies from one spot to another. Some people put their figs back into the foam trays or tackle box they came out of. Though that can be really time-consuming. Others will just toss their figures on the back of a rulebook. But your figures can slide and fall off. Some just grab them and move them over to the next table a handful at a time. But your models can bend or break and your paint can chip. Others get custom trays for moving around minis. It’s one of those that I’m looking at today.

tgn-reviews_360

Arkee Dan gave me one of these trays at Adepticon to try out and let you know my thoughts on.

So buckle yourselves in, it’s time for another TGN Review. This time it’s The Guildmate Tray from Tectonic Craft Studios.
