Ainsty Castings


Midweek Snippets

The week rolls along. Hopefully it's going well for you. Mine's been very busy. But that's meant things are going by quickly. Quickly is good and bad in some cases, as there's a lot to still get done by the end of the year. With Christmas this week and then New Year's the week after, there's lots of end-of-the-year items to work through in the next week and a half. If we're gonna make it through, we need to keep our energy up. That means chowing down on bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Apocalyptic Upgrades: Viral Outbreak Up On Kickstarter, The Cardmogrifier Up On Kickstarter, Ainsty Castings December Sale, Purgatory enters the Pledge Manager, Ramshackle Games Previews Orc Rider For Jet Bike Kickstarter, Tercio Creativo Holiday Sale Happening Now, Paper U-Wing transport released, and Brother Vinni Releases Ingrid female Viking trumpter.

Midweek Snippets

It's been a scorcher so far this week in the US. Certainly has been here in Atlanta, at least. That heat's made it rough to go outside for anything. Seems like a good time to stay inside and do some gaming. Or at least get set for some gaming this weekend. But if we're going to make it through the heat and the week, we need to hydrate, as well as chow down on some bite-sized gaming stories.

On the platter today we have: Ainsty Castings Summer Sale and New Hammers Slammers 15mm, MidKnight Heroes Online store opening sale and Super Chibi round 2 Kickstarter, Silverclutch Games Launches Beneath Nexus Kickstarter Next Week, The Warriors: Turf Wars Kickstarter Launches On the 29th, Son of a Blank Party Card Game Contest Happening Now, Hero Master RPG-Inspired Greeting Cards Up On Kickstarter, and A.E.G.I.S. Coming To Kickstarter Soon.

Today we have: Ainsty Castings Taking Salute Pre-Orders, Darklight Kickstarter - Gameplay Video Posted, Final Hours for Twisted Game on Kickstarter, Final Day for Traazorites Kickstarter, Brigade Games Launches Post-Apocalyptic Miniatures Kickstarter, and First Modern Canadian WIP from Full Battle Rattle Miniatures posted.
