Friday Snippets

Hello, Friday, my old friend.
This has been the first full-week of the year, methinks. Like, ok, I know that we’re already into February, but I think this might be the only week where I’ve been up and into the office each day. Just been that type of year so far, I suppose. What might help is bulking up on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: The Army Painter Announces New Zombicide: Green Horde Paint Sets, Dice Coins Up On Kickstarter, Muddleflog Paper Miniatures Are Now Available, and New Oval Ancient Machinery Bases Available From Tabletop-Art.

Midweek Corner Snippets

As I’ve said numerous times over the past couple weeks, Gen Con is coming. Like… tomorrow. There’s going to be, oh, about a bajillion things going on, so it’s best to stock up on some bite-sized gaming stories. Plus, since we didn’t get it on Monday (and there’s a chance I might not be able to get to it tomorrow), let’s go ahead and get some Terrain Corner pieces in here, too.

So, in all we have: 1-48TACTIC now has free add ons, Warzone Studio Releases Gigafactory Battle Mat, Brigade Models Releases 2mm Scale City Blocks, Crocodile Games Releases Remastered Abominable Snowbeast, Badlands: Fantasy Gaming Mat Available from Pwork Wargames, New Statuesque Female Heads on Sale for 10% off, Darkmook Paper Miniatures Releases Supernatural Western Town Terrain, A Dog’s Life Introduces Tillman the Skateboarding dog, The Army Painter Announces Runewars Paint Sets, and Arid Plain! Fantasy Gaming Mat Available from Pwork Wargames.

It’s here, ladies and gentlemen. Friday. Gateway to the weekend. The work week is almost over and we just need to push through these last few hours and we’ll be free. Hopefully you’ve got some plans put together. Mine have solidified, with some chill card gaming tonight with a friend while we make sliders and eat gourmet popcorn (as you do). Then, tomorrow, it’s helping a friend move some stuff with gaming afterward (hopefully Guild Ball, but we’ll see). But if we’re going to make it there, we should fill up on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Acheson releases 28mm Pewter Grizzly Bear, Brigade Models Releases New 6mm Humans and Aliens, and The Army Painter Updating and Rereleasing Battlefield Tufts Line.

Midweek Snippets

Well, this has been quite a week. Monday had the site down for reasons that are still not 100% identified (it blipped again a little earlier today, but was once more fixed by our outstanding IT guy, Lucas). Tuesday was busy playing catch-up. Plus, there’s been article-writing and such behind-the-scenes for other stuff around here. Just a busy week. I know I could use some extra energy. And I think a bunch of bite-size gaming stories can do that very thing.

Today on the platter we have: Khurasan starts 15mm Late 14th Century Range, Acheson adds 28mm Gorillas, Love Formula Coming To Kickstarter This Month, Game Master Digital GM Tools Up On Kickstarter, New Quickshade Washes Available To Order From The Army Painter, Killbox Games New Releases and Kickstarter News, Khurasan releases new 15mm undead/evil wizard sets, English Version of Master of the Galaxy Coming to Kickstarter, The Component Collector Up On Kickstarter, and New Dvergr Commandos Available From Kromlech.

Hey kids. We have made it. It’s Friday at last. This certainly has been an eventful week. It’s also gone by quickly, at least for me. I hope everyone at Adepticon is having a good time. If you’re not there, I still hope you have a weekend of gaming planned. And if you’re going to be gaming all weekend, you should power up on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Afterward, it’s back to my place for Guild Ball (gonna teach a friend that’s been wanting to learn since Adepticon). But before I head out, I’m going to have an appetizer of bite-sized gaming stories.

Taking a break from the RPG Kickstarters for a minute.
Is the week going by quickly for anyone else? On my ride in to work today, I looked down at my dashboard and saw my odometer and, for a moment, went, “why is that so high? It’s only Tues… oh… wait… it’s Wednesday. Ok, that makes sense.”
But seeing as it is Wednesday and all, we should have ourselves a Midweek Snippets.
Man, this is also the first Wednesday in a couple weeks where I don’t have tomorrow off. Makes me a little sad, but I’ll get through it, somehow.

We are proud to announce the arrival of our new Wargaming Accessory range. Created to help gamers with the vital tools to do battle on the tabletop.

First up we have the TL5015 Wargaming Markerlight Laser Pointer & the TL5016 Wargaming Targetlock Laser Line:

TL5015 Wargaming Markerlight Laser Pointer. Unless you are about 28mm tall, the TRUE LINE OF SIGHT can be very hard to establish and can lead to discussions at the gaming table. Well, no more. The compact Marker Light Laser Pointer will show you exactly what your models can see – no matter the terrain or battlefield – making it an absolute invaluable tool for Wargaming. 3 x batteries included!

TL5016 Wargaming Targetlock Laser Line. The TARGETLOCK Laser line is a fantastic aid for all types of wargaming. No more “seeing around corners” or avoiding difficult terrain in a charge. The Target Lock has multiple uses and will put an end to many discussions around the gaming table. 3 x batteries included!

Later on in the year we are releasing the TL5017 Wargaming Tape Measure RANGEFINDER and in early 2015 a range of Wargaming Battle Dice.

Zombicide Warpaints available in singles

The Army Painter now has the paints from their Zombicide Warpaints sets available as singles to order from their webshop.

REMEMBER: you still save money when you buy the whole set instead of the individuals.

Release date for the individual paints: 8th September.
