Friday Snippets

Man, no day has felt entirely "right" this week. Monday was an amalgam of Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. Tuesday was like a Monday. Wednesday was kinda like a Friday. Yesterday was like a Saturday, but a lot busier. Today's... still getting started, honestly. But it doesn't entirely feel like a Friday. I guess that's what happens when you bookend 2 days at the office with days working from home.
Well, one way that today is going to feel like a proper Friday is by serving up some bite-sized gaming stories. Also, pizza for dinner. But that's not until this evening.

Today on the platter we have: Quizmania Coming To Kickstarter, Donate and get a Free Book From Lamentations of the Flame Princess, Expedition RPG Launches Quest-Writing Competition, New Xyston Miniatures Releases Available, Wamp releases two new 1/12th Scale busts, Pipmen Playing Cards Up On Kickstarter, Ravage: Dungeons of Plunder Coming to Kickstarter, and New Legion Armoury Releases Available From Kromlech.

Friday Snippets

How's everyone doing today? Ready for the weekend? I think I'm gonna keep mine rather chill, just putting together the last of my friend's Guild Ball stuff. They're already assembled. They just need greenstuff work done on 'em (filling in some small gaps, filling in the base slots, stuff like that). Other than that... not much. Plan for Thanksgiving, I guess.

But as for right now, it's time to nosh on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today we have: New D&D Icons of the Realms Miniatures Starter Set Now Available, Steamforged Previews Steamcon/Black Friday Sale, Confrontation Evolution Fan-Made Rules Posted, Wamp releases Master of Roots Bust, Ever wonder what Kriegsspiel Dice looked like?, Super Chibi Round 2 - Reboot Late Pledges now open, Final Days for Portable Paint Station On Kickstarter, New Numidian Infantry Available From Victrix, Spot It! Dobble Coming Next Year, New Releases Available From Hitech Miniatures, German Language Version of Thunderbirds Board Game Up On Spiele-Offensive, and Kromlech New Release: Human Skulls.

Yup the Whites are back to tempt you with their harem of miniature females (and the odd male or monster!)

We love Hasslefree here at Wamp and its always a popular contest. They are some of the easiest and most fun miniatures to paint, just as welcoming to beginners as world class painters.


So theres no excuse not to pick one up to paint but if you need your arm twisting how about the temptation that free goodies brings with it?
