I've just got the Khorne warrior-dudes left to go.

How about you? What sort of gaming-related activities did you do yesterday/have planned for today?

Midweek Snippets

We're halfway there, ladies and gentlemen. Halfway to the weekend. If you haven't started making plans, now would be a good time. For those of you in the US, the 4th of July is Saturday. I'm sure cookouts will abound. And if you're at one, why not bring along a game or two to play? There's plenty of party games that would be most welcome at just about any gathering.
For me? I'm going to keep things low-key this weekend. I had two rather busy weekends in a row. So this weekend I'm going to stay at home and cook. What am I going to cook? ... I've not figured that out yet. Suggestions would be welcome (and any accompanying recipes also welcome).

But as for right now, it's time for some bite-sized stories.

This batch includes: Fury is funded with 24 day left, Some More Installments of The Fiver from The Meeple Mechanic, New 32mm Resin bases (Tomb, Urban & Sci-fi Deck) from Dark Art Miniatures, Armorcast's 4th Annual Cinematic Effects Contest is Here, Apex TDBG Expansion Kickstarter is now EU Friendly, Club Fantasci Editorial: Kickstarter Press Releases and Free Promotion, Old Dominion Gameworks posts Post Captain Bonus Ship files, Vending Bot free for July at The Ion Age, and Bullets & Brains Tokens Now Available from Sally 4th.

TGN Sunday Edition

It's Sunday (at least at time of posting in much of the world... stupid time zones...). I hope you were able to get out and get some gaming on yesterday (or perhaps some today). My party did not get TPK yesterday. Though some party relations were strained a bit. Remember, everyone, communication is key.
Also, Fighters hate having to make Will saves.

But that's as may be. We've collected some bite-sized stories over the past couple days and present them to you now.

In this batch we have: A couple more sets of The Fiver, New 2mm Roman Buildings from Brigade Models, Meridian Miniatures release Chibi Hippogryph for Tooth & Sword, Old Dominion GameWorks posts Post Captain Master index pt 1, Universal Adventures Celestial Invocations Now Available, and Stag Rider unveiled for The Shattered Crown.
