Wyrd Posts Marauder Preview

You know, most of the stuff for The Other Side has a sort of steampunk/old-timey look to it. Basically a Victorian-era aesthetic. Today’s preview looks much more futuristic than that. As always on Fridays, Wyrd makes them that much better with their The Other Side preview. In this case, we get a look at the Marauder.

Steamforged Previews Harriet The Hat for Guild Ball

I guess that headline should have “spoiler warning” in it, but at this point, if you’ve not read the fluff for the Exiles box for Guild Ball, that’s on you. Long story short, not everybody made it out alive, and Harry is no more. However, his hat lives on and has found a new owner in the form of a young Engineering student. And so we get Harriet the Hat. Check out her new cards below.

New Aurox APC Available to Order From Forge World

Slogging it on foot into battle is no fun. You’ve got enemy small-arms fire, the possibly difficult terrain, and have you ever had to smell what’s going on out there?

You can order yours now from Forge World.
They’re also doing a “last call” for Elysian Drop Troops if you want ’em.

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. And then it was gone, seemingly forever. But “seemingly” is the operative word, as Sans Detour has launched a Kickstarter campaign to bring it back to your tabletops.

Privateer Press Announces First Shot Event

A lot of you out there have kids that are getting to the age where you’re looking to introduce them to gaming. And there’s plenty of board games out there designed for just that sort of thing.

However, Privateer Press is looking to change that with their First Shot event, specifically designed for parents to teach their kids the intricacies of minis games.

New Expansions Announced For Imperial Assault

Some people might’ve thought that since Fantasy Flight came out with Star Wars: Legion, that maybe Imperial Assault would get left behind. It does seem like it’s been a while since the last expansion came out, but that will soon change. Fantasy Flight’s announced the Tyrants of Lothal expansion, as well as several Ally and Villain packs.

Idoneth Deepkin Available To Order From Games Workshop

Under the sea (under the sea) there’s a whole race of elves (sorry, aelves) that have been hiding out from the ocean, sticking clean clear of Slaanesh and only doing some light raiding.

You can pick up the Codex for this new faction, as well as several new units and accesssories, as Games Workshop’s taking pre-orders for them now.

Skirmisher Publishing Has Two New Bundle Deals Going

“Buy together and save!” We see it all the time, but most of the time, those savings are pretty negligible. Like, maybe 5-10%. But when Skirmisher Publishing goes in for a bundle, they make it worth your wile. They’ve got a Ragnarok Bundle that’s 30% off regular and a Miniature Wargaming bundle that’s 46% off regular. You can pick these up now.

The next in the list of figures from the Exiles set, the end result of the Union in Chains event, is Veteran Hemlocke.

A new faction will soon be making its way to the battlefields across Western Immoren. They’re the Crucible Guard, and they’re coming in force.

Skirmisher Publishing Releases Ragnarok: Age of Wolves Miniatures Rules

The Norse have their legends and mythologies. They tell of Ragnarok, twilight of the gods, where there’s this great battle, and even Thor and even Odin will slowly die, one by one. But Ragnarok isn’t a fast thing. It takes place over a long stretch of time. And it’s during the opening portions of it where you find yourself in Ragnarok: Age of Wolves, a new miniatures skirmish game from Skirmisher Publishing (seems appropriate). You can pick up your copy now.

Steamforged Launches Godtear Kickstarter

I’m a big proponent of “play the figs you want to play.” I mean, I normally pick my options for games starting with how they look, then moving onto how they play. And it can be tough when part of one faction in a game looks good, but part of another one also looks good. Well, that’s not an issue in Godtear, Steamforged’s new fantasy miniatures game. There aren’t any factions, so just grab who you want and get gaming. They’ve launched their Kickstarter campaign just today.

Wyrd Previews Motor Scout For The Other Side

In combat, knowing the location and strength of the enemy is vital. Scouts have been used for thousands of years to find out just that sort of information. While that spot had been held by horse-riding cavalrymen for the longest time, in the motor age, it’s being taken over by vehicles specifically designed for the job. Such is the case with the Motor Scout in The Other Side, of which we get a preview here today.

Forge World Taking Orders For Terrax Pattern Termite Assault Drill

Midweek Snippets

The first half of the week is over. That means it’s more than halfway to the weekend. I’m still jazzed about the new D&D game that’s starting up. I’ve got my backstory. I’ve got my character sheets. I’ve even got a pair of playlists for my character (well, he is a bard, after all). I hope you’ve got some cool gaming stuff lined up for this weekend as well. And no game is complete without snacks, so let’s snack on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Everlasting Wet Palette Available to Order From RedgrassGames, Skirmisher Publishing Releases Orc Raiders: Tokens & Avatars for Virtual Tabletops, and Shadows in the Void Terran Miniatures Arrive at PicoArmor.

Fantasy Flight Previews General Veers Expansion for Star Wars: Legion

General Veers is probably my favorite character from Star Wars. For all the series tells us that the Empire is cold, ruthless, and efficient, it’s at the battle of Hoth that we finally really see it. Veers commands that battle brilliantly, taking out key parts of the Rebel’s base and causing a rather quick and panicked evacuation for the forces stationed there. Soon, he’ll be able to bring that to your tabletops in Star Wars: Legion.

As the sun rises on a new month (ok, that was yesterday, but go with it), CMON is bringing us some new releases, including the highly-anticipated Rising Sun board game, as well as 3 of its expansions.

Veteran Captain Salt Available To Order From Steamforged

So, yesterday was April Fool’s. Honestly, I don’t really like the holiday much, as you get all sorts of stories coming out that could maybe be true, and would be really cool if they were, but they aren’t. So you never quite know what’s real and what isn’t. As a reporter, that can be very frustrating. However, this story isn’t a joke. Well, it is, kinda, but it’s also real. Steamforged has created Veteran Captain Salt for Guild Ball, and you can order yours now (better hurry, today’s the last day to order her).
