The Army Painter


Midweek Snippets

Halfway through the week already? Man, it sure does seem to fly on by. We'll see if today is its usual "seemingly longest day of the week" or if we can get on through it. But any way you look at it, we need to make sure our energy's up, whether it's a quick couple of days to the weekend or it takes a while. So let's snack on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: New Bastet Helmets Available From Puppets War, 28mm 1745 Jacobite Rebellion Miniatures Up On Kickstarter, and The Army Painter Announces Official D&D Paints Line.

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.

We're also going to be starting our new D&D game. So I'm very much ready for it to be Saturday. But if I want to keep up this pace, I'd better refuel on some bite-sized gaming stories.

I don't know about you, but for me, it seems like just yesterday was Wednesday. I'm not 100% sure what happened to Thursday (maybe Langoliers ate it?), but it's already gone. That's alright, mind you. I'm always ready for it to be the weekend. Best to power up with some bite-size gaming stories.

It's Friday, everyone. Keep calm and we'll get through this just fine and then move onward into the bliss that is the Weekend. My gaming is going to start early, as when I get out of here, I'm going to an Irish Pub nearby for some bangers and mash. 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.

Midweek Snippets

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.
