Midweek Snippets

The middle of the week already? At least, it feels like I should add “already” to the end of that. Week seems to be going by quickly. As you all know, I’m certainly looking forward to the weekend. Hard to believe it’s already the 3rd weekend of the month, which means Board Game Day up at the library. I’ve had to miss a couple of the previous sessions, so I hope to make it for this one. But if I’m going to have a full day of gaming, I should have a stomach full of bite-sized gaming stories. So let’s stock up.

Today on the platter we have: Victoria Miniatures Releases Svargan Shock Soldats, New LRDG Minis Available From Askari Miniatures, and More MYTHEXPLORERS Figures Available From RN Estudio.

Sans Detour Launches Confrontation Classic Kickstarter

Confrontation is one of those games that us “old time gamers” tend to talk about with a wistful sigh. A game from the early days of minis that just didn’t quite have the backing to keep going strong.

I’m a sucker for a unique setting for a game.

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.

Midweek Snippets

We’re halfway through the week, folks (well, those of us that work Monday-Friday, that is). I hope your week is going along well. For mine, I’ve been coming up with a new character for a D&D game starting up soon. I’ve never made a 5th Edition character before, but I’ve made dozens of them for other editions. So it’s a bit of “this is familiar, but not.” I’m doing my best to not accidentally inject 3rd and 4th edition knowledge into 5th, and make assumptions based on those and thus, screwing things up. But I think I’m getting it. But if I’m going to finish this character up, I need to refresh with some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Gravetides Fantasy Naval Fleet Up On Kickstarter, New Ogre Chariot From NonsenseMiniatures, Rebel Minis Releases New Viper Models, and Big Crystal Field Bases Now Available From Tabletop-Art.

Judgement Wave 2 Up On Kickstarter

Long-time readers will know my love for big models. Sure, those 28-32mm minis are fine, but I really like larger figures. I like big minis and I cannot lie. That’s why a game like Judgement gets my attention. The game uses 54mm minis for its game. The first Kickstarter was a success, but like every success, there’s desire for more. Well, that desire will soon be met, as the 2nd Wave of figures is up on Kickstarter now.

Slayer’s Frontier RPG Up On Indiegogo

Well-regulated hunting can be a positive factor in the health of a natural population. While that is up for some debate, many conservationists would agree.

The RPG is up on Indiegogo now.

Ponyfinder: From the Ashes Adventure Up On Kickstarter

Terrible wars tend to have terrible consequences. When the Humanoids and the Fey went to war, it was truly a terrible war. At the climax, the energy that held back the Everglow was unleashed.

In the aftermath, the survivors realized what they had done and hostilities ended, as everyone realized that life was already going to be much tougher in this grey world.
