Friday Snippets

It's Friday, and many of you up in Indianapolis, enjoying Gen Con. Remember, if you are there, do the "Gen Con 3, 2, 1". Every 24 hours, get at least: 3 hours of sleep, 2 meals, and 1 shower.

Today on the platter we have: New Orlock Weapon Upgrades Available From Forge World, Fantastical Sub-Saharan Miniatures Kickstarter Relaunched by Deraj Studios, and New Statuesque Heroic Scale Female Heads NARROW - Berets on sale at 10% off.
