In a way, it's Wednesday, because that's what day it is. In a way, it's Friday, because it's the last day of the work week. In some ways, it's both, because we have a Snippets post here for you. So, before you chow down on all the food tomorrow, let's get you some bite-sized gaming stories to snack on.
Today on the platter we have: Game Cows Discusses Different Types of Board Games, ARMYTRANSPORT Black Friday Sale Happening Now, The Avatar of Cthulhu Up On Kickstarter, Rebel Minis Releases 28mm Scale Cyberdogs, and New Monster Hunter Mini Available From Brother Vinni.
Board gaming today has turned into a behemoth, with games and strategies becoming ever more complex and in-depth. With so many new gamers in the industry, imaginations run wild. The traditional view of what a board game is has been completely thrown out the window, the genres and mechanics becoming so intertwined that it can be hard to figure out “What’s in the box?”
To help guide you we’ve compiled a list of the most common types of board games that players will find and what to expect from them. Have no fear, Game Cows is here!

In this Kickstarter I want to introduce my version of Cthulhu. I've seen many different sculpts and statues but none have ever met my personal vision. Some were close but most fell short. So I went about finding some talented artists so I could get my version created. It was over a year in the making but it is done!
Now, if you're going to create Cthulhu you have to go big and this sculpture is huge! It comes in at 380mm (just under 15") from the base to the tip of the wings. Here's a picture with one of my 32mm miniatures from the last Kickstarter. As you can see Cthulhu towers above normal miniatures. It is an imposing figure and will sit proudly in any Cthulhu or Lovecraft collection.
We are very excited to announce the release of our 28mm Cyberdogs! Perfect for your Sci-Fi games! You get 7 dogs and bases per pack.
Monster Hunter, 28 mm fantasy wargame miniature.
28 mm multipart resin miniature.
Unassembled, unpainted. Base not included.
Miniature produced by Brother Vinni's studio.
Fridaaaaaaaaaay! You know how much I love today.
Wow, I just realized that since the 1st of November was a Thursday, that means we're gonna have a really early Thanksgiving this year. That's both cool and a little bit scary at the same time. Lots of prep to do before then, so I'd better make sure I'm filled up on bite-sized gaming stories before we get there.
Today on the platter we have: Spiral Arm Studios Releases Pa'ku Artillery, ePic Character Generator is now available on Android, Infinite Black Taking Pre-orders For Elder Dice Wooden Hex Chests, Ugears Game Accessories up On Kickstarter, and Adventure Portal VTT Now Available For Early Access.
This month sees the release of a new support unit for the Broken: Pa'ku Artillery, available now from the Maelstrom's Edge webstore! Behind the implacable visage of the Pa'ku resides a powerful, if often misunderstood intellect. Extremely logical creatures, when the Pa'ku are convinced a certain course of action will do more good than wrong, they will take lives without scruples if that is what it takes. Pa'ku artillery has been known to mercilessly bombard hospitals or civilian refugee groups when they have concluded that this was the most logical course of action. They do not make any decision lightly nor do they act carelessly. In fact, the Pa'ku sometimes drive their commanders crazy as they sit pondering the pros and cons of a proposed course of action and all the alternatives, and where the situation is particularly complex have been known to gather for private war councils with their own kind before they will consider responding to a call to arms. Despite their reputation for ruthlessness, when Pa'ku take lives it is because they believe there is no viable alternative. This does not however mean they are saints - all of a Pa'ku's deliberations are still ultimately guided by self-interest and a desire to survive the chaos of the Edge. Despite their peculiarities, Pa'ku are especially desirable to the Broken. Their solid physiques make them extremely suited to carrying heavy loads, including the biggest artillery the Broken manage to cobble together. At close range, the Pa'ku can extend their very long tongue with enough force to cave in a man's skull. Pa'ku only speak to other species when necessary, and their language is difficult for most races to translate or speak. Combined with their large size, this generally results in them being overlooked by evacuation efforts, and so as with the even larger Gnolti, joining the Broken is often the only reasonable chance for a Pa'ku to escape the edge and find a new home. Pa'ku are often found in the support lines of Broken forces with giant cannon and other esoteric weapons strapped to their broad shoulders. Linked with electronic targeting systems, these weapons can be slaved together to unleash devastating barrages of firepower onto enemy lines. Their favoured weapon is a multi-barrelled EMP mortar, which carpets the battlefield with explosive energy packets that can fry electronic systems and incinerate softer targets. You can find the rules for the Pa'ku Artillery unit in the Force Builder section of the Maelstrom's Edge website.

I just released to Steam Early Access a small virtual table top application for 5th edition based role playing. It's a straight forward but intuitive online application/utility that helps people run their role playing campaigns online. It started as a personal project for my friends and I to use with our own campaigns. It eventually evolved into a more complete utility and I subsequently decided to package it up for Steam and make it publicly available. I first started with Roll20 and flirted with the idea of Fantasy Grounds but my group and I were more casual and didn't want to commit the time, money, or effort to learn these systems. I took it upon myself to make a basic stand in because I enjoy such projects and love game design. It has turned out to be pretty useful thus far. I think that it will be a good fit for particular types of players. The development is ongoing and I intend on listening to the public for guidance and suggestion moving forward.
It's Halloween. Boo!
And while the kiddos are out going door-to-door getting little bite-sized treats, we dont' make you go all over the neighborhood for your bite-sized gaming stories. You can just dunk your head into the bowl here and eat all you want.

Having fulfilled the Barbaric Splendor Personalities Kickstarter, its time to make this line of great barbarians available to all! To celebrate we are offering the Barbarian Hillman Chief for free to the first 25 orders of 5 or more miniatures.
She's a little under 2" wide and about 3" long. Her gun, gunner, and the gunner's head are all separate pieces too so if you'd prefer her without a crew-served weapon that's totally an option. It also means that if you'd prefer a different head it'll be a doddle to swap it!
The Cerberus Team are delighted to introduce a new range of richly designed and highly detailed characters. Following the success of our first Kickstarter, we would like to welcome you to join us on a new adventure.
Our second wave of miniatures delves deeper into our storyline, continuing on from the models from our original cast. Mortals’ Reckoning sees the action of one man, Lazarus, start a chain of events that puts the mortals back in charge of their own fates.
The characters below are linked to two of our main villains, The Kyrios and The Slaver. But rest assured each new personality is a power house in their own right...
Show, Grow, and Go with the X-Case 2.0 the only Expandable, Transportable, Multi-Configurable Display case for Miniatures. Now it is stronger and will have inserts to carry your dice, tokens, cards, and other gaming components in one easy to transport system.
