Wyrd Releases Alt. Lazarus Mini

I love alternate sculpts for minis. Even with some small modding, armies in a minis game can potentially look a bit samey. A great way around that is alternate sculpts for figures. Because unless you're a pro sculptor, you might do a few cuts here and there, but it's not anywhere near what a company can do with all their resources behind making a mini. Well, Wyrd has released a new Alt. Lazarus model. But you can't just pick it up in their webshop. Nope, they make you work for it (in a good way).

The weekend's almost here! As always, I really can't wait. A friend's coming in from out of town to hang out and play games for a week or so. It's Game Day up at the Milton Library this Saturday (if you're in the Atlanta area, be sure to stop by and say hi). Since we'll be gaming, there will be some terrain out there. And we want that terrain to look good.

Today in the Terrain Corner we have: TinkerTurf Terain Up On Kickstarter, New Containers and Crates Available From Tabletop Scenics, New MDF Terrain From Pwork Wargame, North Pass Gaming Mat Available from Pwork Wargame, and Wyrd Previews New Terrain.

Wyrd Previews Soulstone Aficionado

Humans love shiny rocks. Gold. Silver. Diamonds. Any sort of gemstone. They were all just shiny rocks that people decided were worth something. Soulstones, however, have more than just "shiny rock" value. They also hold great power. And few are able to appraise and evaluate these rocks more than the Soulstone Aficionado. Check out this pursuit for Through the Breach in Wyrd's Monday Preveiw.

Monday Terrain Corner

Back in the office after a busy weekend. How busy? Well, I made 2 fruitcakes, 2 batches of chocolate chip cookies, 2 batches of gingerbread cookies, 2 batches of cinnamon nuts, and then 1 batch each of salted caramel dark chocolate brownies, chip 'n' mint cookies, nutmeg sugar cookies with egg nog frosting, candy cane cookies, and an extra batch of that egg nog frosting to put on the other cookies. ... Like I said, I was busy.
So, while my coworkers chow down on the fruit(cakes) of my labor, let's get your gaming tables looking good.

Today we have: Wyrd Previews New Terrain, New Footbridges and Road bridges from Sally 4th, Heroic Maps - Giant Maps: Ice Base Khione Now Available, and Erdhexe Battlemat Now Available From Warzone Studio.

Wyrd Previews Infiltrators for The Other Side

Fridays are already pretty damn awesome. Then Wyrd steps in with their regular Friday previews and things just get awesome-er. Hey, no red, squiggly line under it means that's a real word. Anyway, they continue their look at The Other Side with a preview of the Infiltrators. When the King's Empire needs to get information without their enemies knowing, they send in the Infiltrators. They'll get the job done right.

Wyrd's Winter Wonderland Issue Is Your Gain

Working in the gaming industry, there's a lot of going ahead with plans as set on your timetables and hoping that everything should work out right. Occasionally, they don't. Something comes back from the printer's that's messed up. A sculptor's work gets destroyed in a freak accident. Or you end up with a box of minis that are miscast. Unfortunately, that last one is what happened to Wyrd with their Winter Wonderland box that's part of their holiday sale. However, their loss is your gain. They're tossing in another mini with the box (though it will be a bit of a delay in getting your sets).

Wyrd Previews Propagandist From Above the Law

It could be said that all advertising is some form of propaganda. And, really, all the stories on here are a form of advertising. So, it could be argued, that I'm in the propaganda business. Though I'm not really sure I like the ring of that. But waddyagonnado? You're gonna read about the Propagandist pursuit coming from the Above the Law expansion for Through the Breach.
