The week rolls along, just as the thunder outside rolls along.
I have to say, obviously I hope that everyone stays safe and there's no property damage, but at the same time, the Midwesterner in me is going, "Squeee! Thunderstorms! Yay!"
I miss the storms that'd roll through Kansas and Missouri back when I lived there.

Anyway, as long as lightning doesn't knock out the power or internet, let's get you a platter full of bite-sized gaming stories.

Today we have: Final Hours for Frazetta Miniatures on Kickstarter, The Drowned Earth comes to Kickstarter April 16th, New Miniatures For Lance & Laser Available, New Sizes of Crystal Fields Bases Available From Tabletop-Art, EZPainter April Special Happening Now, Legends of the Colosseum 28mm Miniatures Up On Kickstarter, and New Legionary Heavy Heat-Ray From Kromlech.

We're just one week away.
A week away from what? My favorite day of the year, of course! I've already got one turkey. I'll pick up another this weekend, along with a bunch of other stuff so I can make dinner for my friends when I go over there on Thursday. It should be a great time.

But before we get there, we need to get your gaming tables looking as good as your dining room tables (which is often the same table, just utilized at different times).

In today's Terrain Corner we have: Heroic Maps - Valdisfjell Market Now Available, Amera Plastic Mouldings New Releases Posted, Sally 4th Fantasy Football Deals to celebrate Bloodbowls re-release, North Pass: Pwork Wargames Fantasy Gaming Mat Now Available, and Armorcast Holiday Sale for November Happening Now.

We're reaching the peak. After this, it's a slide back down to the weekend. I'm hoping to have some friends over for gaming and cooking, as well as basically a "mini-Halloween" party (my apartment's not really that big. Hard to have more than 4-5 people over :P ). There will be Cryx Necrotite Sugar Cookies, Atomic Peanut Butter Balls, and a bubbling cauldron of gumbo.
But that's as may be. Right now, we've got a bunch of bite-size gaming stories to give you.

On the platter today we have: Zucati Dice: Retro Classic Pure Aluminum Dice On Kickstarter, Totentanz Miniatures to Make Corvus Belli's 15mm Historical Miniatures Range, Purgatory Shows off 2 freshly completed models for the Kickstarter, New Swan Faction Tokens from Advanced Deployment Now Available, Ramshackle Abomination and Robot Sale, Armorcast LLC announces the Fifth Cinematic Effects Modeling Contest, Last Days To Enter Tercio Creativo's Wipley Drawing, New Releases Available From Micro Art Studio, Ouroboros Miniatures' First Release Now Available, 5-Minute Dungeon Coming to Kickstarter Next Week, and Era: The Consortium - A Universe of Expansions Kickstarter in the last week.

The weekend is over. It's back to the office. But, hopefully, you got some gaming in over the past couple days. Me? I played some Guild Ball (Masons beat the Morticians) and then some Dogs of War (my favorite game that CMON makes). I also got to watch a game of On Her Majesty's Service. They already had 4 for the game, so I was just a spectator, but that game looks pretty cool.

But that's as may be. Currently, we're here to make your gaming tables look as good as possible. So, with that in mind...

Today we have: Maki Games Launches Modular Underground Project Kickstarter, Badlands Terrain returning soon to Gale Force Nine, Heroic Maps - Sowthistle Farm, Badlands: Pwork Wargames Gaming Mat Now Available, New From Skull Forge Scenics: Resin Graveyard Entrance, New Terrain and Miniatures at Armorcast, and Terra-City One Dual Carriagway Sections Available From Sally 4th.

It's still really hot here in Atlanta. Personally, with Gen Con being over, it's "autumn" in my mind. I realize that the official season doesn't start for a month still, but my grocery store already has Halloween decorations for sale (so, to you that think the Christmas stuff comes out too early, but want Halloween to last a couple months, your wish is being granted). I know I'm ready for falling leaves and cooler temperatures. As it is, though, I'm still hiding out inside, playing games. And as such, I want my gaming tables to look good. Y'know, mimicking the outside world that I refuse to participate in. :P

Anyway, in today's Terrain Corner we have: 6mm Scale "Genatorium" Sci Fi Power Plant available from HoneyBee Works, Heroic Maps release - Abandoned Dwarven Hold & Mines, Maki Games - MUP Modular Underground Plastic Dungeon is coming to KS, The Valley: Pwork Wargames Fantasy Gaming Mat Now Available, Tabletop Cartographer: Large Scale Fantasy Maps Up On Kickstarter, and New Plastic Modular Jersey Barriers 28mm - 1/48th Scale at Armorcast.

Seeing as how Monday I was in a car for about 13-14 hours, I didn't get a chance to do the regular Terrain Corner piece. So, much as I did Friday, with the combined Snippets/Terrain Corner post, I'm giving you another of those today. Gotta catch back up from Gen Con.

Anyway, today we have: Live Q&A For Tablescapes Dungeons Today, Blood Moon expansion is out for Talisman: Digital Edition, Holistic Design Inc. and Canivete Films Announce Portuguese Fading Suns Translation, Heroic Maps release Modular Kit: Forest Glades, Khurasan releases multiple pose crabmen set, New Statuesque Fine and Pulp Scale Female Heads 2 on sale, Armorcast Announces: All Hail the Mesmofrog, RPG Combat Maps: Pwork Wargames grid gaming mats now available, Hitech Miniatures Releases Traveler Priest Dante, Brassed Off - etched brass modelling details On Indiegogo, New Model 30 Billboard From Mechanical Warhorse, Sports Inspired Card Deck Up On Kickstarter, Khurasan releases The Great Swamp Lizard, and Final Days for Unit RPG Up On Kickstarter.

And we're back to Monday. We knew it was going to happen, eventually. Doesn't mean we have to like it. I hope everyone's weekend went well. Mine was... productive. Lots of things to get ready for Gen Con. The new shoes will help. And I got an industrial-sized pack of cough drops. Also, some granola bars, for when I can't make it out for any real food. The weekend also went by super-fast, I felt. I remember going, "wait, when did it get to be 7pm?" on Saturday. Seems the whole day flew past. It's alright, though. We'll get back to another weekend.

Anyway, in today's Terrain Corner we have: Mousepad Woodland Gaming Mat Available For Pre-order, Armorcast Xmas in July Sale Happening Now, and Streetscape: 28mm Resin and MDF buildings Up On Kickstarter.

It's once again time for Monday. But it's ok, it happens every week. We should be used to it by now.
... Right?
Ok, so every week it's not always easy, but what is easy is making your gaming table look great, with the help of our Terrain Corner.

Today we have: Manorhouse Workshop Kickstarter Ends, Deep-Cut Studio releases new Alien Planet gaming mat, New Terrain From Mechanical Warhorse, Battlefield: Pwork Wargames Science Fiction Gaming Mat Now Available, New Cinematic Effects Now Available at Armorcast, and New GBHQ Firehouse Available From Burn In Designs.

We've made it to Thursday, everyone.
Is it just me or has the week sort of slowed to a halt? I think it's because next week's going to be a short one. As such, we have to make this week longer to compensate. Otherwise, space-time and all that gets messed up. Thankfully, Powerhouse is seeing me through the day. Also, I'm looking forward to playing some games tomorrow night. So that's something to look forward to. In the meantime, let's make sure your gaming tables look as good as possible.

Today in our Terrain Corner we have: Warlord Games Taking Pre-orders For Project Z Terrain, Deep-Cut Studio releases nature tiles on mousepad material, New 28mm Shopping Mall from Sally 4th Coming Soon, New Armorcast Ruined Highway Overpass Coulmns, and Urban Sector: Pwork Wargames science fiction gaming mat Now Available.

Well, we're back once more to Monday. The weekend is gone and we can only bask in the memories. I hope yours was good. Mine was certainly productive. Got a lot of stuff done around the apartment, as well as putting together all those Guild Ball models. But that's all done. Now it's back in the office. But it's alright, there will be another weekend. In the meantime, we gotta make sure our gaming tables look the best.

Today's Terrain Corner articles include: New Mid February Armorcast Terrain Products, Micro Art Studios Infinity Terminus Segments Up On Kickstarter, Pwork Wargames releases fantasy gaming mat: Arid Plain, and New Releases Available from Eslo Terrain.

Despite what you feel about Mondays, it's easy to say that my Pandora was ready to get going. When I loaded it up this morning, the first song to come on was Giuseppe Verdi - Il Trovatore. You may not initially recognize the name, but I can all but guarantee you'll recognize the tune, especially if you grew up watching Warner Brothers cartoons.

Anyway, let's hammer out some terrain stories for you (see what I did there?).

Today's entries include: Tabletop Towns Gaming Mats Up On Kickstarter, New Star Wars Gaming Mats From Fantasy Flight Games, Manorhouse Workshop Forgotten Halls Update 4: about the stairs and flooring up, Heroic Maps - Modular Kit: Ancient Dungeon Corridors Available, and Latest Releases From Armorcast Available.
