Tor Gaming


There'd been a lot of stories about gaming companies closing up shop recently. Many of them were looking to sell their game to other developers. Well, in the case of Tor Gaming and Relics, it has been picked up by TTCombat. They will now be the ones behind the helm of the game.
Man, just a sad day for companies closing their doors today. Tor Gaming, makers of Relics, is closing up shop.
Gavin might be taking the day off over at Tor Gaming today (being a bank holiday in Britain, as it is), and I'm sure he's enjoying a cuppa, but that doesn't mean the Tor Gaming website doesn't have some new stuff for you. They've released new Tactical Formations. And it's not just one or two factions, but each one has a new one you can pick from.
Friday is once again upon us. Gateway to the weekend. So many possibilities. I'm as busy as a one-armed paper hanger. Making all sorts of things in prep for tomorrow's MST3K binge party. I hate to go to a gathering empty-handed, so I'm making brownies, cookies, and prepping stuff so I can make nachos and Swedish meatballs while there. Like I said, hate to be empty-handed. But while I'm making those bite-sized treats, let's nosh on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Two New Tank Turrets Available From Ramshackle Games, Tor Gaming Announces Their Affiliate Program, Circle of Blood from Last Bullet Games Coming To Kickstarter, Path of Light and Shadow Coming To Kickstarter, Final Days for Wreck Age Kickstarter, and Fluff Preview Posted For The Drowned Earth.

Gavin over at Tor Gaming has been working hard. But all that tea he drinks, it's probably the caffeine getting to him. The March releases for Relics are over in the Tor Gaming webstore and available to order. Make sure you put your name on the list and get yours as soon as they're released. Meanwhile, you can also check out April's releases.
Gavin has been busy over in his Tor Gaming workshop. The amounts of tea he's been drinking could be considered "insane," even for a Brit. But all that caffeine has resulted in a new edition of Relics. You can download them, for free, over on the Tor Gaming website. To go along with it, there's some new releases and pre-releases available as well.
It's always cool to see items that were on Kickstarter be available for general sale. It shows a real successful Kickstarter campaign. Well, Gavin over at Tor Gaming has started taking pre-orders for the latest C'thu models for Relics. They were originally on Kickstarter, and now you can get them (or, at least, you can get them soon).
Seems it's just a time for sales and special offers. Tor Gaming has one of those going for the month of May with their Maverick Mike offer. Just spend £40 or more in their webshop and you'll get one for free (be sure to add him to your cart and use the "FREEMIKE" coupon code). How will you get to £40 for your order? Well, you could order some of the new Vaettir Brocken.
Who doesn't love a birthday? There's a party. Cake. Balloons. Presents. It's a good time had by all. Well, Tor Gaming has a birthday coming up this month, but they're giving you the presents in the form of a birthday sale in their webshop.
And we've made it to Friday. The weekend is just a "rest of the work day" away. Unless, of course, you have to work on Saturday and/or Sunday. As someone who used to work at a hospital, I know your pain. Which reminds me, be sure to thank your LGS workers this weekend. Without them, we'd not have cool places to meet and play games.

In the meantime, though, we should fuel up on some bite-size gaming stories.

Today we have: Bombshell Miniatures Having March Madness Sale, Epic Wing pack Available From Puppets War, Tor Gaming Relics Videos Survey Contest, New 15mm Scifi Rules set in Development, Orc Mecha-Armours Weekend Special from Kromlech, and Bucks, Bullets, And Flowers Board Game Coming Soon To Kickstarter.

We're getting there, people. We're getting there. The weekend is damn-near here. I've got a couple Guild Ball teams to put together. It's so close that our friends over in Australia are already there. Hello people in the future! How's the weekend starting out? Good, I hope. My you're up late.

Anyway, whether you're enjoying a midnight snack, some dinner (for those in, say, England), or an afternoon snack (those here in the Eastern part of the US), now's a good time for some bite-sized stories.

In this installment of Snippets we have: Win a C'thu Dice Bag From Tor Gaming, Fate of Akalon: Tribes Returning To Kickstarter Next Week, New Legionaries Vibro Talons Available From Kromlech, New 15mm Sci-Fi Minis Up On Kickstarter, Khurasan releases more 15mm Mutant Supersoldiers, Pacific Coast Creative Publishing To Release Age of the Wizard Lords RPG, DayTrippers Golden Age Coming Leap Day, and Counterblast Hero Builder Beta v.1 Available.

While Tor Gaming still has their C'thu Kickstarter campaign going, that doesn't mean they're not busy working on the other factions for Relics. Quite the contrary, indeed. While the campaign goes on, they also have new pre-orders for a pair of the existing Relics factions.
Seems the C'thu have been pretty popular. The Kickstarter campaign for the new Relics faction has been making their way through various stretch goals. As such, there's quite a lot that's been made available as add-ons for the campaign. If you value your sanity, you might not want to click through.
Well, we're working our way through it. The work week is just about half-over. I hope it's going well for you. It's been alright over here. Gotten a lot of stuff done already this week. Hoping to keep the productivity up.

Anyway, at the moment, we've got some snack-sized stories for you to munch on.

Today's installments include: WizKids Show and Event Schedule for 2016 Posted, Two New Helmet Styles Available From Puppets War, New Infinity Tokens Available From Warsenal, Tor Gaming Player Survey Up Now, New Iron Reich Goblin Commander From Kromlech, New Bonefield Round-Lip Base Deals Available From Tabletop-Art, Syrinscape’s Turn of the Torrent SoundPack Now Available, and Summoner Wars Second Summoner Playtesting Starting.

Gavin over at Tor Gaming needs some help.
Ok, well, we all knew that, but in this particular instance, he's looking for help when going to the various shows in order to promote Tor Gaming and the various products the make, primarily Relics. If you'd been looking to get into the gaming industry, this might just be it.
We all knew that Gavin over at Tor Gaming was a little... odd.
Seems there's now a perfectly reasonable explanation for that.
Of course, it's because he is a little odd. But who can blame him? He's been working on a new faction for Relics, the C'thu. Of course your sanity's not gonna be all there when doing something like that.
Officially, Gavin, Larry, and all the others at Tor Gaming are off for the holidays (must be nice). But that doesn't mean they're not posting stuff about the upcoming C'thu Kickstarter campaign they'll be running for Relics. It's been a while since I took a look at the game, proper, but this new faction might just be what pulls me back in. I'm loving how the sculpt look. Speaking of which, here's a look some of the units.
We've all known for quite some time that Gavin over at Tor Gaming was a little crazy (I mean, he calls a car's hood a bonnet! :P ). Tor Gaming has announced that they're going to be adding a new faction to Relics and they're going to do so via Kickstarter. Well, they've got some new preview artwork to show off for the upcoming campaign.
Gavin and Larry over at Tor Gaming are having themselves a sale. But Gavin being Gavin, it's a Gray Cyber Weekend sale (because he's kooky like that).
Hello there, Wednesday. How are you? I see you've brought the Guns 'N' Roses weather back with you. And while I know I'm in the minority here in Atlanta when I say, "woo! Rain!" I don't care. I enjoy it. So there.

Along with the rain, Wednesday brings us our Midweek Snippets post, where we bring you some bite-sized stories that we've found over the past couple days.

In this batch we have: Tor Gaming Announces The C’thu Kickstarter, We're All Mad Here NPC Contest from Wizard of the Coast, Fistful of Lead: Reloaded fully backed on Kickstarter, Tin Man 35% Off Sale Ends Sunday Night, Shieldwolf Miniatures releases new Goblins, New Sci Fi Dwarves from Scibor, Oddzial Osmy’s 3mm and 15mm October Releases Arrive at PicoArmor, The Seraphis Institute - The Third Army Deal From Nexus Miniatures, Vasseth Strike Tank and Reaction Force released by Loud Ninja Games, New Shaleground 30mm and 40mm RL Deals From Tabletop-Art, Crusaders of the Faith Revealed for Shattered Earth's Children of the One True God Faction, Medieval Mayhem Coming This December, New Cavalry Models From Brigade Models, and Just Four Days left on the Interface Zero kickstarter for Fate.

Warlord Games isn't the only company giving out some free shipping this month. Tor Gaming is doing much the same. Though they're not making any sort of reference to Christmas with their announcement... which I guess I just made a reference to... but there we are, then.
Gavin and Larry (mostly Gavin, Larry just sits around, eating chicken) have been working hard over at Tor Gaming. They have their recently-released Ridend faction that people are picking up. Now they've posted up a couple of new releases they'll be coming out with in the next couple months.
While Gavin, Larry, and the others at Tor Gaming might be on vacation for the summer, that doesn't mean that there's nothing going on for Relics. For you Ridend players, there's a trio of new releases that are coming out soon that you can get your name on the list to get them as soon as they're released. Be the first gamer on your block with these figures.
Welcome back again to Friday. It's been a busy week here, catching up from all the things after the CMON Expo. But we're all back into a stable flight pattern, I hope. I know I am. And hopefully you've got some gaming lined up this weekend. I'm going to visit some friends across town and play some 2nd edition D&D. Yeah, we're going old-school for this one. Bring on the Thac0 tables.

Before that, though, we've got some bite-sized stories we want to share with you.

In this batch we have: Britanan All-Stars Team Deal from Tor Gaming, Final Week for Golem Arcana Pretty Girls Indiegogo, New Basing Sand from Kromlech, 32mm Crystal Clear, Magnetic & Standard Precision Laser cut bases and figure storage from Sally 4th, Warmonger Miniatures 10mm Landsknecht Arquebusiers (Handgunners) Released, Free PDF at The Ion Age: Planetary Militia in Patrol Angis, and Heer46 "Kharkov 1943" Indiegogo Campaign Reaches Funding Goal

Tor Gaming is now taking pre-orders for the first couple sets for the Ridend, a new faction for Relics, their stitchpunk miniatures skirmish game. Though they're not all that impressive individually, the Ridend possess all the rabid determination of a miniature doberman pinscher. They'll gladly swarm over any opponent in acts of fearlessness and use a thousand paper cuts to bring down even the largest of foes.
