Midweek Snippets

I just realized this morning that this upcoming weekend is the last one before Christmas.
Ok, so, technically Christmas has one more weekend before it, but since it falls on a Monday, it means this upcoming week is the last one before the holiday. As such, I’ve just now realized how much baking I need to do (since that’s what I give as presents to friends). Looks like this Saturday’s shopping list is going to include a lot of unsalted butter, flour, and chocolate chips, plus whatever else I feel like throwing in. But before I get to those tasty treats, let’s get to today’s tasty treats in terms of bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: December Releases Available From Scotia Grendel, War in Christmas Village Sequel Up On Kickstarter, and HeresyLab Working on a New Line of Miniatures.

New German Pak 40 auf RSO Available For Bolt Action

The Soviets made some pretty good tanks during WWII. This was causing the Germans some issues. They had their reliable Pak 40 gun, but it wasn’t easy to move the thing around. And the original Tank Destroyers that were made had exposed crew quarters, so they could be taken out with small arms fire. The Pak 40 auf RSO compensated for that with an armored crew compartment, even though it made the whole thing rather slow. Now, you can bring it to your Bolt Action battlefield and take out those annoying T-34s.

New Winter Soviets Available To Order From Warlord Games

Winter is coming… No. Really. We’ve got about a month and a half and it’ll be here.

New Char B1 bis Platoon Available From Warlord Games

Tanks were a brand-new invention during WWI. They were seen as a way to finally break the trench warfare of the Western Front. Between the wars, there was some innovation, but the French felt that the original styles were still some of the best and kept producing along those lines. Hence the Char B1, which was upgraded to the Car V1 bis. You can now add a platoon of these land-battleship style tanks to your Bolt Action armies.

They say that necessity is the mother of invention. Well, during war, there’s a lot of necessity to make better weapons than the opponents. It’s sort of a life-or-death type of thing.

If you’re a Flames of War player, you’ll want to check out these Late War deals that Battlefront has going on.

Midweek Snippets

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?

Warlord Games Taking Pre-orders For Road To Berlin Campaign For Bolt Action

The final part of the war in Europe during WWII was the Allies getting ready to head to Germany, itself. The D-Day landing had been successful. Paris had been liberated. Now it was time to head to Berlin. It wasn’t going to be an easy trek, of course, as the Germans were falling back on their supply lines. There would be counter-offenses, of course, and the war was far from a sure-win. Soon, you’ll be able to bring that action to your Bolt Action tabletops with the Road to Berlin campaign, available for pre-order now.
