Friday Snippets

Time has been playing weird tricks this week, I feel. The first several days flew by. Thursday took an eternity. Now, today's doing a little bit of both. I feel like it should be later than it is, so it feels like it's been a long time since this morning... but I've also gotten a ton of stuff done. So I dunno. I do know that I'm possibly going to be playing some Guild Ball this evening and then some D&D tomorrow. So that's cool. Better pack myself full of energy with some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: New Imperial Knight Heads From Forge World, Knight Models Previews Suicide Squad Dice, Kromlech New Release: Legionary Shotgun, Angels and Demons join Flatminis 2D miniatures range, Shadows of Esteren Announces Partnership with Syrinscape, Talisman is Free to Play This Weekend Only, Comrades in Battle Reaches Funding Goal, 15mm Naval Crews Range is Back From Capitan Games, and Final Days for Tavern Masters Kickstarter.

From the launch:

As we have said in earlier announcements and on The Miniatures Page we have opened a new company in the UK called Capitan Games Ltd. Battle Models Ltd will shortly disappear as a separate entity but, as "Battlemodels", will become the brand name for our figure ranges. However, we shall continue to offer the full range of Warmodelling figures outside Spain, where Warmodelling will continue to operate its existing business.

These changes, whilst hopefully securing a more reliable delivery service, will not affect how our existing customers interface with us.
