Bombshell Games

There's no such thing as "too many dice." Also, it's cool to have dice that match your team/army. Well, For those playing Techno Bowl from Bombshell Games, they're giving you a chance to get custom dice for your team over on their website. *urge to know more intensifies*
We're about to hit August here, and that means that the football season (that's American football) is about to fully get underway. Heck, preseason games will be happening this week! Seems like a perfect time to bring that bone-crunching action to your tabletop. That's where Techno Bowl from Bombshell Games comes in. It's all the action of retro arcade American Football games, right on your living room table. It's available now.
The American Football Season is still quite a ways away. But that doesn't mean you can't be getting some gridiron action going. Or, at least, you'll be able to soon, as Bombshell Games has started taking pre-orders for Techno Bowl.

Here in the US, the football season is underway. Many of you, I'm sure, are following your favorite teams (hopefully to victory). Quite a few have been playing various football video games quite possibly for decades now. But what if you want to unplug from your tv and go play a tabletop game? Well, Bombshell Games has something for you in the form of Techno Bowl, their tabletop game of classic arcade football action. It's up on Kickstarter now.
37! 18! 45! Omaha! ... Hike!
For those that love the nostalgia of old video games, particularly old sports video games, this is a Kickstarter for you. We've had various previews about Techno Bowl, the new board game that emulates classic 8-bit football video games. Well, the Kickstarter campaign has launched.

Well, I certainly had a busy Saturday. Went through a lot of old gaming items that I'd not seen in quite a long time.
Man, I never really could paint all that well. And here I thought it wasn't half-bad.
I'm freely willing to admit when I am wrong, and I was certainly wrong. :P

But Friday it is. (Woot! Woot!) So Snippets it shall be.

Bombshell Games has some new preview greens as well as concept artwork up for Dark Alliance.

From the preview:

As some of you know, I’ve been working with with Steven Salotti of Microworld Games to create MAYHEM army lists for his 6mm fantasy line. What you probably don’t know is that this includes rules for both lines and miniatures not yet released. Intriguing- right? Well, Steve has been kind enough to let me give you a little peek at some of the concepts and greens for the upcoming Dark Alliance army. Behold!

One of the advantages of creating lists for a specific line of miniatures is that, due to finite options, you can add more ‘army specific’ rules to give each force resulting in more character, uniqueness, and varied play styles. darkalliance-warbeast-mayhem-green1Scale plays into this equation as well, and developing for the Microworld 6mm fantasy line means getting to focus on some of the large epic creatures and combats that just don't happen at larger scales. Stay tuned for more images and information.

Bombshell Games updated their books for both Mayhem and General's Compendium. Be sure you're playing with the most up-to-date versions!

From the announcement:

MAYHEM had been updated with new Crown costs for the MOV and CQ characteristics and a new recommended starting game size of 200 Crowns. These values have been revised throughout all the various documents and builders. These cost revisions have prompted a change to the Axe weapon trait - make sure to check that out!

The General's Compendium is updated as well, and it now contains advanced rules for standing orders, 'setting' your troops, and charges. Not only do these rules increase the tactical options available to you, but they allow you to increase the size of the forces you can field in battle.

As always, these updates are completely free of charge. To obtain them, simply return to Wargame Vault and download the updated files. I look forward to hearing what you think!
