Just about back to normal, everyone. Well, at least, as "normal" as we get around here. One thing that's nice is that the weekend is almost here. And weekends mean gaming. And gaming often means terrain. So, let's get your terrain game upped with some awesome stuff.
Today in the Terrain Corner we have: Battle Ball Field : A Fantasy Football Arena Up On Kickstarter, Iron Age Farmstead 28mm Miniature Wargaming Terrain Up On Kickstarter, The 2019 Battlefront Premium Terrain Pre-Order is now open, Rampart: Magnetized Modular Terrain for Tabletop Games Up On Kickstarter, War Sands Gaming Mat Available From Pwork Wargame, New Hay Bales Set Available From Tabletop-Art, Heroic Maps - Storeys: The Church of St Pixtus the Martyr Now Available, and Dark Star Station Rubber Battle Mat Available from Loke BattleMats.
Archon Studios had quite a hit on their hands with their League of Ancient Defenders (LOAD) miniatures board game. So much so that they, well, ran out. So it was time to do a new print run. But they didn't just want to make the game again. They are adding in some updates and advancements to it. So it's up on Kickstarter now.
Ninja Division has announced that they will be the North American publisher of the LOAD (League of Ancient Defenders) board game when it is made available to the world. The Kickstarter campaign is continuing on, but with the hopes that they'll remain above their funding goal (which they are by a decent margin), the game will be made and eventually will have people looking to publish it outside of the Kickstarter rewards.
Don't you just hate it when the forces of Chaos invade? I know I sure do. Things are going nice and calmly over on Atlantis and suddenly, Boom! Chaos invading! Those guys have no respect. So you've gotta fight back against them as part of the League of Ancient Defenders (or LOAD for short). Or, I guess, you could be one of the Chaos invaders, if you so chose. That's the story, anyway, behind LOAD, a new combat board game that's up on Kickstarter now.
Well, I felt well-enough to head back into the office today. Though, I have to admit, I did have some incentive. But be that as it may, it's time to power-up with some bite-sized gaming stories in our Midweek Snippets feature.
Today we have: Welcome to the Olde World ... Miniatures Kickstarter, Purgatory Ramps up with stat card prototypes, Dark Sword Miniatures Posts 12 New Releases, Polyversal Miniatures Game nears funding goal, NonsenseMiniatures Releases Aquiles vs Hector Diorama, Uniform Guides for the War of the Grand Alliance 1690, Khurasan releases Testudo 15mm Generals and Dragoons, Zombie and Skeleton Fantasy Monsters series I On Kickstarter, Raging Heroes Releases Keela Krupps from Toughest Girls of the Galaxy, New Dwarf Lord on Mountain Ram from Scibor, Red Panda Miniatures Posts New Artwork and Kickstarter Update, and LOAD Kickstarter Launch date announced.
I've really been looking forward to this weekend. Not that the work week's been bad, mind you. It's actually gone by in a flash. No, I'm just ready for a full weekend of gaming (and article-writing, which is a direct result of the gaming). What sort of things do you have planned? Whatever it is, we'd best make sure you've got lots of energy, which can be gained from some bite-size gaming stories. We have just that for you here now.
Today there's: Moose Added to Flint and Feather Kickstarter, Final Days for Ral Partha's Kickstarter, New Jet Engines and Bases Available From Hitech Miniatures, New Pathfinder Soundpacks Available From Syrinscape, French & Indian War Canoes On Kickstarter, Khurasan releases support weapons for 15mm Modern US Army, Raging Heroes extends the Free Shipping Offer, and LOAD gives away some of their awesome hero miniatures.
It's a hive of activity here in the office. We've got a lot of extra people in the office in town for the Expo this weekend. And it sounds like they're building something in the warehouse (which is right behind my desk). Everything for the show is in "Final check" phase. That means utter chaos, of course, but in a good way. :P In the meantime, let's fill up on some bite-sized gaming stories, shall we?
Today we have: Rotten Factory Miniatures - Rise of the Dark Power On Wspieram, Totentanz Miniatures Tercio May releases Posted, Last 5 Days For Aether Captains on Kickstarter, New Ancestral Ruin 32mm and 40mm base deals from Tabletop-Art, Junk Spirit Games announces By Order of the Queen, Dark Siren Available Now From Kabuki Models, Load Board Game Coming To Kickstarter Soon, 15mm WW2 and Vietnam Passenger Trays Available From Dark Art Miniatures, A new design appears From Red Panda Miniatures, Khurasan releases 15mm Soviet T-64B, Brigade Models Release 15mm Neo-Soviet Conscripts, Final Day For Aeon's End Up On Kickstarter, Hope Board Game Coming To Kickstarter June 9th, and Cross promotion between Fragged Empire and FAITH: The Sci-Fi RPG.
