Let's take a closer look.

Friday Snippets

Happy Friday, everyone. Glad you could join us. Got any plans for the weekend? I've rapidly been realizing that next week will be a short one for us here in the US, as many of us will have at least Thursday off, and quite possibly taking Friday off as well. So, that's something to look forward to. But before we go have a BBQ cook out, let's nibble on some bite-sized gaming stories to get us there.

Today on the platter we have: WWII German Officer Available From Brother Vinni and Healer's Dice Up On Kickstarter.

Warlord Games Taking Pre-Orders for New Rorke's Drift Set

From what I've been able to tell, Rorke's Drift for the British is sort of like the Alamo for Americans. It's a battle that, while rather small in scale, has lived large in the historical records, and one that's gone back to many times in reference. Warlord Games is coming out with a new Rorke's Drift set for Black Powder, including brand-new sculpts of some of the famous individuals that fought there. Pre-orders are available now.

New Battle on Snowshoes French & Indian War Set Available From Warlord Games

It's getting to be almost 100 degrees here in GA this week. It really makes me long for those cool days back when I lived in Chicago. There, one could possibly get use out of a pair of snowshoes. Not so much here. But I can still live vicariously through my little mans, including the new Battle on Snowshoes set for Black Powder that's available from Warlord Games now.
