They're running a Kickstarter campaign now in order to get him off the ground.

Friday Snippets

Hold tight, people. We're almost there. We've come too far to give up now... Though I'm not sure how you could give up on "time moving forward" and just decide to quit it (without talking about time dilation or other, less-than-savory topics. O,o). Anyway, it's Friday and that means we're at the gateway to the weekend. Best to gather supplies in the form of some bite-sized stories.

Today's snippets includes: Symbaroum Being Translated Into French, DGS Games Previews Sunbringer for Traazorites on Kickstarter, Siren Miniatures Troublemaker Bundle Available Now, Hitechminiatures new releases, Khurasan releases 15mm Afghan Mujahideen/Taliban, and New Panzerschreck team.

Traazorite Crusaders For Freeblades Up On Kickstarter

Longtime readers of TGN know my love of dinosaurs. I think they can help enhance just about any game. I know several game series that I'd love to play if they were to reskin from some other creature to dinosaurs, or if a dinosaur faction were added to the game. Well, it's looking like the guys over at DGS Games are making a bid for me to go in whole-hog into Freeblades, as they've got a new faction for it up on Kickstarter.

DGS Games Releases Freeblades Rules Companion

When games have multiple releases, with new books and models coming out, every so often you can find yourself at a loss for trying to find where a specific rule for a specific model is.

Well, DGS Games is making it so Freeblades players don't have to worry about that so much. Their new Rules Companion is now available.

Sunday Snippets

Hello, beautiful readers, and welcome to another Sunday. Here at the bear cave, I'm doing a bit of cleaning and then I've got some Gen Con prep to work on. Yeah, the show is getting ever-closer. It'll be here before you know it. Just one more weekend after this before it's here. Will you be coming to the show? If so, lemme know. Maybe we can talk gaming (one of my favorite activities).

But that's for a couple weeks from now. At the moment, we've got some bite-sized stories to share.

In this batch we have: CROM: Conan Rise of Monsters has a teaser trailer for their Kickstarter launch, Gods and Monsters posts Kickstarter Video, A couple more installments of The Fiver from The Meeple Mechanic, Dead Earth Games Posts The Shattered Crown Gameplay Video, and DGS Games announces Freeblades Kickstarter stretch goals and future Demon Faction.

Monday Terrain Corner

The weekend is over and we're once more back to the regular work week. Hopefully yours was good. I got my Age of Sigmar box set all put together. I had no major mess-ups during assembly. Though my right thumb does hurt from getting stabbed repeatedly by little, plastic spikes. Both the Sigmarans and the Khornites (or whatever they're technically called when referred to in such a manner) do enjoy sharp bits on them.

Hopefully everyone is making their way safely home from SDCC as well. It certainly looked like quite a show this year. Someday I might make it out there for one, but I have a feeling that, knowing me, simply enjoying it from a far (vicariously through all the photos showing up) is probably what I'll stick with.

But anyway, enough of that, let's talk about terrain.

In this set of terrain stories we have: Tabletop-Art previews WIP Terrain Components, Heroic Maps - Birthday Sale, DGS Games adds Trial Stones models to Kickstarter options, and Terra Block 'Tomb of the Serpent God' from Sally 4th available for Pre-order.

Mid-Week Snippets

The work week rolls on. We've made it halfway through. Just another couple days and we'll be blissfully back into the weekend. For some of you, that weekend will include San Diego Comic Con. I... will not be there. That's probably a good thing. I doubt I'd do well in July in California with what feels like a hundred billion other people all crammed into one place.

Anyway, that aside, we've got another batch of bite-sized stories for you.

Today we have: Gods and Monsters previews Herald of Moros art and 3D render, Star Crush Starship Miniatures on Kickstarter, BTR Innovations Let's Play Dice on Kickstarter, The Shattered Crown previews Stag Rider sculpt, Atlantis Miniatures Live on Kickstarter, Meridian Miniatures unleash Chibi Zombies, Syrinscape Releases New Dragon's Demand Soundscapes and more, Zombie Dice is back from Steve Jackson Games, Oddzial Osmy’s 3mm and 15mm June Releases Arrive at PicoArmor, and Freeblades Specialty Tiered Dice sets added to Kickstarter rewards.
