With the drive to Indy yesterday, I obviously didn't have much of a chance to make posts (and no, trying to type in the car all day was not an option. I would've gotten all the carsick). So today I bring you both the Midweek Snippets and today's Terrain Corner together again in one place.

Friday Snippets

Friday, glorious Friday. We've once more made it to that glorious day. The weekend stretches ahead of us after a workday like an infinite sea of possibility... Ok, maybe I'm getting a bit dramatic. But hopefully your weekend will include some gaming of some sort. Even if not gaming, itself, then putting together some models or painting or some sort of hobby-related activity. I think I'm going to work on a couple more DreamForge kits I've had for a bit that really need to put together.

But that's the future. The present is a set of bite-sized stories we've collected together from the past couple days.

Today's batch includes: Final days for Bomarzo on Kickstarter, Icarus Miniatures Preview Gabriel Cross 3D Print, Troop Element Trays and Bases now at The Ion Age, Frontier Suns have finally arrived at Lone Gunman Games, and Kromlech New Release - Kri'tho'ann - Herald of Pain.

TGN Sunday Snippets

My fellow TGN readers, welcome to another Sunday Edition. I hope your Saturday was good and your Sunday is being productive. My D&D group from yesterday came close to TPK at least twice. But that's what happens when you charge up to 4 Dire Bears and basically give them a turn to munch on your character before the next character from the party is there to help. Oh well. Nobody hit -10, so they were able to keep-on keepin'-on.

As for today, we've got another batch of bite-sized stories for you.

This set includes: New Kromlech Releases - Static Grass and Battle Dice, Oddzial Osmy’s 3mm April Releases Arrive at PicoArmor, Heroic Maps - Explorer: Wild Places released, Manorhouse Workshop Update #26 – Modular Underground Project – In the box, Copper Mine Miniatures running Mechanical Steamhorse Kickstarter, Brutal Force - Icarus Miniature Preview Jesse Pope, and Victrix Ltd. Limited Edition Rude Roman shield transfers.
