That's how we greet each other here at the office (though that version above might be cleaned up some). Seeing as it's Friday, I hope you've got some cool weekend plans. Some of my friends are headed up to another friend's mancave-gamer-basement-of-doom. I've got a spoopy D&D game (just because it's not actually October doesn't mean you can't start the spoop early). And so, if it's not too early for tricks and treats, lets treat ourselves to some bite-sized gaming stories.
Today on the platter we have: WizKids Releases New Magic: The Gathering Token Miniatures, Dungeonfog Releases Dynamic Lighting System, and New Pulp Alley Releases Available From Sally 4th.
Snakes! Why'd it have to be snakes? Well, a lot of people like snakes and they've been a part of human culture for a very long time. Take Ancient Egypt, for example. You'll see snakes all over the place. And it's into such a tomb, decorated with all manner of snakes, that you must go in Tomb of the Serpent, a new Pulp Alley release that's available to pre-order from Sally 4th.
We once more stand on the precipice of the weekend. I hope you've got gaming stuff planned. I know I do. It'll be a good time had by all. Lots of gaming, and then lots of reporting about said gaming back to you all.
But I'm still getting over being sick. I'm hoping I'm on "the last day" of this nonsense today. But just in case, I'm keeping up my "being sick" protocols. And I'm also going to need to fill up on some bite-sized gaming stories. Good thing that's just what I've got here.
Today we have: Askari Miniatures Webstore Back Open, Hitech Miniatures Releases Battle Walker "Onslaught", New Toughest Girls of the Galaxy Box Sets Available From Raging Heroes, Sally 4th Pulp Alley Character Cards released today, Oddzial Osmy’s 3mm and 15mm May Releases Arrive at PicoArmor, and Kromlech New Release: Legionary Heavy Flamers.
Or is it Friday Snippets, because I have the day off tomorrow? (and hopefully you do, too) Either way, it's some bite-sized stories before we have lots more bites tomorrow for Thanksgiving. And yes, I really am as jazzed about the holiday as it seems.
Anyway, today's bites include: Lead Adventure Miniatures Release Bruegelburg Knights, Bombshell November Releases Posted, YooAmeGames preview their new card game Madness Skull, New website/store for Imaginative Miniatures, New Statuesque Pulp Alley Pre-Orders, Aegis Studios Releases Character Compendium 1 Under the Hero Kids Compatibility License, Notification of Results for the 2015 Windhammer Prize, Dark Art Studios Launches Forums, Announcing the First Wave of Scenarios for Post Captain, New Windfall Bases Available From Kromlech, Echoes Revealed for Shattered Earth's Humanist Rebellion, Watchful I Studio proudly announces that it will be opening its webstore, Games Workshop Black Friday Deals Coming Soon, and New Hammer's Slammer Detachment Packs From Brigade Models.
This week just keeps humming along. There's buzz around the office here as people are getting ready to head downtown for Dragon Con. I will not be going to the show. I have other things I'll be working on. Some of those things will include the weekend updates.
But we're only midweek. So lets get our Midweek Snippets post typed up here to you.
In today's batch of bite-sized stories we have: New Life for Bladestorm Tabletop - Quick-Start Rules Released, ClearHorizon Miniatures releases the Apocalypse-Class Superheavy Tank, Khurasan releases 15mm Great Orcs, Hitechminiatures new release: Monk Luther, Pulp Alley expansion Pulp Leagues up for Pre-Order at Statuesque,
You've made it to Friday. Congratulations! You should reward yourself with some gaming. Or perhaps take in a movie. *opes the paper to see if anything good is playing right now* ;)
However you choose to spend your weekend, be it fighting against robot hordes, or just watching them on the big screen, hopefully you have a good time. Before that, though, we've got our usual grouping of some bite-sized stories for you.
This batch includes: Warmonger Miniatures 10mm Landsknecht Arquebusiers (Handgunners) Kickstarter On Now, New Pipe Works Terrain System From Mechanical Warhorse, New Pre-painted 28mm Boxes and Crates from 4Ground, Era: Lyres nearing the end of its Kickstarter, New Pulp Alley figures and weapons from Statuesque Miniatures, Kromlech New Release - Legionaries Flamethrowers, Blood and Bone RPG - Goal Surpassed, Hysterical Games previews Dwarf Grenadiers for Panzerfaüste, Predastore Releases Arrow Predette, Bad Roll Games Previews Junkers Starter Pack Artwork, Dog Might Games launches The Adventure Case Kickstarter, Limana Games posts War of Wonders Kickstarter Preview, MidKnight Heroes posts W.I.P. Leonide, and Dragon War- Riders of Ashara Table Top Miniatures Game Kickstarter Announced.
Hey everyone. Here's another batch of news snippets for you. Remember, snippets aren't "leftovers" or "scraps" or anything like that. They're news like everything else. They're just... smaller. There's good stuff in here and we want you to know about it. It's just that the story's shorter, but no less important!
So what do we have in this round? Well, there's a new punk green from Slow Death Games, an announcement from ThunderChild Miniatures about a new Kickstarter, a new release from Hitech Miniatures, a new adventure for Fantasy8s, new Pulp Alley templates from Sally 4th, a notice about the final days of the Rise of the Kage pre-order, some new goblin nurses from Kromlech, a Squadron Strike: Traveller Preview, an announcement about the Death Saves Anthology release, and some new accessories for Robotech from Burn In Designs.
Sally 4th helps you out when playing Pulp Alley with the release of several new template sets. Everything from short and long bursts to blast templates. Don't worry about those disputes over whether a model's under the template or not with these sets.
I was absolutely delighted when David asked me if I would like to design some products to support Pulp Alley, as this is a game that we play very frequently and always really enjoy. Our first four releases are:
Gaming tokens to place on the table or on your character cards to mark actions, wounds, status etc. This set contains 36 15mm diameter tokens.
Statuesque Miniatures and Pulp Alley are pleased to announce the first releases from our new joint Pulp Alley Miniatures range.
First out of the blocks are Pulp Girl and Phantom Ace, two daring pulp heroes ready to fight villainy wherever it raises its head. As a special pre-order launch deal, Pulp Girl and Phantom Ace are available for only £7/ $11.75 for the pair.
These figures are available from both the Pulp Alley webstore in the USA and the Statuesque Miniatures store in the UK.
Pulp Alley now has their products available over in their online webshop. Go and have a look for yourself.
From the announcement:
The Pulp Alley team of Dave and Mila are proud to announce the release of printed copies of their fantastic rules set. Forty-four pages of pulse-pounding pulp action, with all the rules needed to bring dashing heroes, dastardly dangers, and daring escapes to the tabletop.
Along with these beautiful new copies of Pulp Alley, Dave and Mila are also releasing their printed Fortune decks. Printed on premium 310 gsm plastic coated (linen). In addition to the 45 Fortune cards and 5 Reward cards, the deck also includes two blank Rewards and two blank Fortune cards for custom perils and rewards or to act as "red herrings".
