Mage Company Announces Cesare Borgia Board Game Coming Q4 This Year

When many of us think of the Renaissance, we think of great works of art and architecture, maybe some famous pieces of sculpture. But, you know, it wasn't exactly the most peaceful time in world history, either. Various houses vied for supremacy, and many of those famous artists and sculptors were commissioned for their military minds as much as their artistic talents. The Borgias are certainly ones that had their thumb on many other houses via bribery, intrigued, and outright use of arms. And it's into this part of the Renaissance that you find yourself in Cesare Borgia, a new board game coming from Mage Company later this year.

Today we have: New Webshop Open For Last Sword Miniatures, Battlefield in a Box: Medium Desert House Available From Battlefront, Mage Company Features 12 Realms: Dungeonland Scenery Packs, Classic Columns Now Available From Tabletop-Art, Champion's Bowl Game Mat Available From Warzone Studio, New Gaming Mats Available From Frontline Gaming, Sailpower multi-scale Ships Up On Kickstarter, New Normandy Terrain From Najewitz Modellbau, Battlefield in a Box: Desert Escarpments Available From Battlefront, Manorhouse Workshop & RGFX collaboration: The Dark Crypt (Fog Tower), Valdisfjell The West Door Map Available From Heroic Maps, Warland Gaming Mat Available From Pwork Wargame, Battlefield in a Box: Desert Palms Available From Battlefront, and New Orc Barrels Available From Kromlech.

Friday Snippets Corner

Hey everyone.
Well, the first week of the year is coming to a close. It's been... an odd one. Monday I had off. Tuesday I had to take my car in for repairs (which got finished up on Thursday, since they had to order in a part). Wednesday and Thursday I had some stomach issues. Now it's Friday and everyone here in Atlanta is bracing for a "huge snowstorm" that's on its way. Hopefully it's not too bad and everyone out there stays safe.
But just as everyone is stocking up on bread and milk, let's stock up on some bite-sized gaming stories, as well as some terrain pieces from this week.

As such, we have: Flat Plastic Miniatures 2 Up On Kickstarter, New Sleeves Unlocked in Mage Company Kickstarter, New Metalized Discworld Death Bust From Micro Art Studio, New Magnetic Foil Sets Available From Tabletop-Art, Avatars of War Having Plastic Harpies Sale This Week, Brigade Models 6mm Habitation Dome Released, Heer46 launches Gebirgsjaeger Kickstarter, Molecules of Hatred: Wulfrim Irongrudge Available, and Acheson Releases More Dungeon Worlds Part 2 Figures.

MAGE Company acquires Dwar7s Fall by Vesuvius Media

Occasionally, games will change hands. Sometimes a company acquires an already-existing project as they feel they will be able to help it grow by giving it a wider audience than the original company is able to. Well, Mage Company has picked up Dwar7s Fall from Vesuvious Media. Here's to getting out there and getting gems from the mountain so you can buy food and build up your dwarven kingdom.

Friday Terrain Snippets

Hey guys. You might've noticed we didn't have a Terrain Corner yesterday. That's because I was whisked away to help work on a super-ultra-deep-covert project. Or, being that a lot of companies are currently on holiday, there wasn't much to report on. One of the two. Anyway, so today we've got a combined Terrain Corner/Friday Snippets for you.

Today we have: Coffin Set 1 Available From Tabletop-Art, Dust Town Gaming Mat Available From Pwork Wargames, MAGE Company launches on Kickstarter the MCG Premium Sleeves, and New Infinity dedicated 70mm Tech Round base From Micro Art Studio.
