And here we are in Saturday.
I hope your day is full of gaming. I’ve got some hobby projects I’m working on, as well as taking photos of some stuff I’m gonna be looking to sell in order to fund/get room for some new stuff. There’s only so much room around here before I can get some more. What can I say? There’s just too much cool stuff coming out. What kind of stuff? Well, the stuff we’ve got reviews of here for you.
Today we have: Imperial Settlers, 504, Poseidon’s Kingdom, Operation F.A.U.S.T., Over/Under, SpaceTeam, Titus Tentacle, and Lands of Ruin’s Miniatures.
We continue to move forward, not backward, upward, not forward, and always whirling, whirling, twirling towards the weekend. We might also be dizzy now…
Anyway, we have made it halfway through the week. And someone brought a giant bag stuffed with candy and put it in the break room here. So, while I can’t give you a “fun-size” Kit-Kat through the screen (I tried, but then I has to go clean my monitor), I can give you some bite-size gaming stories.
So, for today we have: H.E.A.D. Hunters Coming to Kickstarter This Fall, Unity: A Brand New Indie RPG on the Horizon, New Fire Forge themed bases Available From Dark Art Miniatures, Pipmen Playing Cards (Relaunch) On Kickstarter, Rockabilly Heads Now Available From Tabletop-Art, Golem Miniatures shop is online, New Multi-Mini Deal From Nexus Miniatures, North Star Military Figures Takes Over Day-to-Day Activities of Copplestone Castings, Winter War: Free Combat Patrol supplement for 1939 Russo-Finnish War From Sally 4th, New Stygian Torsos Available From Bits of War, Lands of Ruin Kickstarter reaches the funding goal, and Final Day for Battle Arena Show On Kickstarter.
Through games such as Golem Arcana, the XCOM board game, and others such like them, the digital world has started to make its way into our tabletop world. Apps have started taking on some of the burden of playing a tabletop game. There have been many new advances and innovations that have come from bringing in such electronic pieces to the game. Well, Lands of Ruin is looking to do that, but to an extent I’ve not really seen before. No, it’s definitely not a video game with miniatures. It’s a miniatures game with a very integrated app.
Time ever-marches onward! Well… as far as we know, anyway. I guess time could stop for a while and if we were stopped along with it, we’d never really know it’d happened. Unless you were some sort of 4th dimensional being like in Slaughterhouse Five or something, we’d never realize it.
Ok, well, this took a really quick turn to the metaphysical. Not really intended, but there we are, then. Let’s just move on to today’s heaping helping of bite-sized stories before I begin to discuss other laws of physics of which I have a tenuous knowledge grasp on, at best.
In this installment we have: Metal King Studio Posts Thief Episode 1- Concept Art, Model Dads’ Ost-Front 15mm Decals Out Now, Heroines in Sensible Shoes female dungeoneer minis Kickstarter, Khurasan releases Vespulid Queen, MidKnight Heroes Super Chibi Miniature Line Kickstarter now Live, Kickstarter First Look: Granny Grating Armies, Kromlech new release – Morbid Beast Araneaeman, Khurasan releases 28mm scale “Los Viejos”, Lands of Ruin Kickstarter launch is set to 19th of February, and Circle of Chaos: Oldhammer metal miniatures for your warband On Kickstarter.
This first full week of the new year went by really fast for me. Did it go by fast for you? Though I’m sitting here in my Friday shirt, I was still a bit surprised when I looked and saw, “Oh, hey, it’s time to schedule up Friday Snippets. … I thought it was, like, Tuesday or something.”
But Friday it is. (Woot! Woot!) So Snippets it shall be.
Today’s bite-sized stories include: The Broken Token Releases Zombicide Organization Sets, Kalmbach expands reach with acquisition of Rather Dashing Games, Nexus Miniatures Posts News Updates, Kromlech Releases Morbid Beast “Chimney”, Kabuki Models Taking Pre-Orders For Second Wave of Star Vixen, Meeple Source Kickstarter Happening Now, Techno Bowl Helmet + Team Preview #1, and Thundercloud Miniatures webstore reopens.
Don’t know about you, but this week seemed to rocket by for me. Just, zip, zip, zoom! And here we are at Friday. Woot!
That means we get ourselves a Friday Snippets feature. So here’s some bite-sized stories we’ve found for you over the past couple days.
This batch includes: Privateer Press Announces Updates Coming Fro War Room, Library Lovers Playing Cards On Kickstarter, Skirmisher Publishing Releases 100 Oddities for a Creepy Old House, Lands of Ruin team releases free 3D character models, Capsicum Games to launch Fleet Commander kickstarter next month, Looting Atlantis now offers a money back guarantee during final days on Kickstarter, Sengoku 15mm Japanese Fantasy – HOTT Armies now released, and Last weekend for Free Huge Glow-in-the-Dark Cthulhu Figure from Petersen Games.
