Cold Wars

Amazing what a difference a week makes. Last week, I was lamenting how long it was all taking. This morning, I woke up and was like, "Whoah... it's already Wednesday!" That certainly works for me. Faster to get to the weekend, the better. But if we're going to be going along at this break-neck pace, we should stock up on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Lion Tower Miniatures Launch First Kickstarter, New Statuesque Asylum and Starport figures and a new Statuesque Female Head size, Battlefront Releases Range Finder For Flames of War, Exiles of the Tetsu Clan Miniatures Up On Kickstarter, New ellipse bases from Micro Art Studio, New Norman Kite Shields Available From Tabletop-art, Fenris Games - Rise of the Draugr Up On Kickstarter, Battlefront Releases New Destroyed Markers For Flames of War, Broken Egg Games are coming to Europe, New Quad Mortar Platform Available From Kromlech, Acheson Creations and Evil Bob’s at Cold Wars March 17-19, New Desert Mission Token Set From Battlefront, Ouroboros Miniatures presents: Fey- The Celestial, and Atlantis Miniatures Launches 28mm Dwarf Minis Kickstarter.

We're making it, people! We're making it! We've just about made it to the weekend. Some of you reading this who are to the East of me have already made it there. Those of us here in the last couple time zones just have a couple hours more to hold out and we'll be there, too. Hooray! Fun with time zones!

In order to make sure we've got enough energy, let's fill up on some bite-sized gaming stories, shall we?

Today we have: Lil' Cthulhu Kickstarter Reaches 70% Completion, New WW2 releases from Company B at Cold Wars, Shades of Vengeance Launches Free Rulebook Primer, Hitech Miniatures Releases Commander Cassandra mini, New Sons of Thor Torsos Available From Kromlech, Oddzial Osmy’s 3mm and 15mm February/March Releases Arrive at PicoArmor, and Brigade Models Rerelease Tolero Figures.

Miniature Building Authority will be headed to Cold Wars in Lancaster, PA next week. Will you be there?

From the announcement:

MBA will be in our normal booth area. We will have lots of new items to show for this year. Our brand new items that we are currently taking pre-orders on will be on display and available for pre-order at the show. They are to arrive at our warehouse while we are at the show.

All of our MBA products will be at the new lower retail prices as well. Additionally, all of the new Direct Terrain items will be on display and for sale.

We now have close to 100 items in our direct line. We will also be selling board games from Cool Mini or Not. This will be the first time that these games have been available at the show. So stop on by and say hello to Jim, Bob and Kirk. We are looking forward to seeing everyone.

Have a great day!

All the King's Men has some new 54mm buildings available over in their webshop, plus a small update about restocks and their involvement at Cold Wars in a couple days.

From the update:

Alongside our new 54mm ACW line, All the King's Men is pleased to announce our new set of 54mm buildings. They include:

Brick building $30 USD
Church or town hall $40
Stable $25
Meeting house $30
All 4 combined in a village $110 (a $15 savings)

Also back in stock are our haystacks ($15 for a set of 3), now made in foam resin as well

These terrain pieces come unpainted. You can see pictures of them painted on our site, and we offer a painting service. Just contact us for details.

These are all cast in lightweight foam resin. It's the kind of foam that can take spray paint. Not styrofoam, which will melt in contact with spray paint.

We'll have all these items, our whole ACW line, and other 54mm offerings at Cold Wars in just a few days.
