Super Sunday Snippets

I know that gamers aren't generally known for their sports knowledge, but you'd have to be willfully ignorant not to know that it's Big Game time (because the NFL is about as litigious as GW, I'll skip out on using the actual term for what's going on today). That's right, here in the US, our American Football championship is happening tonight. Wings, beer, nachos, giant sandwiches, and pizza will be consumed in mammoth proportions.

But before you head to your party, check out some these bite-sized stories.

This time we've got: More unlocks for the Fightin' Fungi Kickstarter, a new release from Hitech Miniatures, New Knights Bundle from Kabuki Models, New Gaming Mats from Deep-Cut Studio, New Mine Tunnel Terrain from Heroic Maps, NOVA 40K Qualifier offered at TotalCon 29, New Previews Posted for Alternative Civil War, New 15mm Houses from Tabletop-Art, New Drunk Goblin Guard from Rebel Minis, and Ludus Magnus Studios announced their relaunch date for Nova Aetas.

WIP from Ghost Train Games of another model for ACW: 1861

Ghost Train Games shows off another of their WIPs for Alternative Civil War in their latest update.



Source

From the preview:

Here's an almost final WIP for the next model concept to be released.
We’re not yet sure of its name: We’re discussing around “The Doomed Rifle”, “The Cursed Rifle”, “The Bedeviled Rifle” and I personally like “The Black Halls” or “The Bedeviled Halls”. Would you like to help us to decide it? Check out the discussion at our Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/GhostTrainGames) page or send us a message with your opinion via Twitter (@GhostTrainGames) or email (ghosttraingames@gmail.com).

The model itself is not the guy but the gun. It is a M1819 Halls, one of the first breech-loading rifles, that participated in the Mexican-American War where it was infused by a malevolent spirit.
The Halls starves for lifes and souls, turning its wearer into a raving maniac that neglects its own safety in order to provide the weapon with its grim harvest. When the miserable man falls in battle, which ussually don’t take too long, the malignant ghost compels another poor soul to carry it and continue the slaughter.
