Friday Snippets

As we stand here, on Friday afternoon, on the precipice of the weekend, it seems appropriate to make a profound and meaningful statement about life, itself...
... ... ... Anyone got anything? ... Anyone? ... Ah well, instead how about we just munch on some bite-sized gaming stories? Sounds like a plan.

Today on the platter we have: Woodland 25mm und 40mm flat Bases Available From Tabletop-Art, Khurasan releases Vietnam War range, and 100 Oddities for a Treasure Hoard Available From Skirmisher Publishing.

Khurasan releases Vietnam War range

We are very pleased to release our latest 15mm modern combat range, for the Vietnam War, 1965-1973. The range focuses on US involvement in the ground war, and its release coincides with the premiere in the US of Ken Burns's latest documentary this Sunday, September 17, as well as the recent book by Mark Bowden on the Battle of Hue.

The first codes in the range are a US infantry squad with M16s without body armour, a pair of M60 gunners, and an NVA squad. We also have an M113 model that is part of the range as well.

Each figurine in the squad is a unique sculpt. The US figures come with separate packs, one per figurine, and the M60s, and the RPD in the NVA squad, come with a bipod if you wish to use it.

The range will be greatly expanded, and the second codes -- a squad with M16s in M69 armour, and a Viet Cong Main Force squad, are being sculpted now.

The first codes are available now.

100 Oddities for a Treasure Hoard Available From Skirmisher Publishing

Welcome to "100 Oddities for a Treasure Hoard," the ninth entry in Skirmisher Publishing’s popular "Oddities" series! This publication includes 100 unique things characters might encounter in an otherwise mundane collection of loot and includes guidelines for ways to introduce Oddities into your game sessions or stories in a fun and compelling way.

Have you ever needed to stock a treasure hoard? If you are the storyteller for a game, the answer to that question is undoubtedly a resounding yes! At the end of a long and perilous quest, the heroes (and their players) usually look forward to some tangible material reward for their efforts. But it can be difficult to get beyond randomized coinage and a handful of gems, especially if you are pressed for time. And ambitious players are always on the lookout for innovative, exciting, and unique loot after a hard day of Dragon-slaying and overlord overthrowing. Well, we at Skirmisher Publishing are here to help, and have done far more than just compile a loot list. We have, in fact, created some valuable oddities!
