Pathfinder Battles: Ruins of Lastwall Now Available

The latest set for Pathfinder Battles, Ruins of Lastwall, is now available. Whenever I'm playing an RPG, I like to have the right figures out there to represent what I'm playing/fighting. And there's always having multiple versions so you can keep them separate. So it's nice to have another set of figs to choose from.

The player with the most spectacular menagerie at the end is the winner.

Midweek Snippets

Halfway there. We're halfway there to the weekend. I've got D&D coming up. Hopefully you have your own gaming planned. Or, if not, some fun plans in whatever form they may be. But, seeing as we're halfway there, we need to munch on some bite-sized gaming stories so we can have enough energy for the last half of the week.

On the platter today we have: Kraken Dice Warehouse Sale Starts Today, Cthulhu Coins up on Kickstarter, Acheson Creations Releases 28mm Allosaurus and Camarasuarus, and WizKids and Vallejo Partner to Create New Paint Line.

Renegade Game Studios and WizKids Announce Wardlings RPG Setting

Oh, to be a kid again and have an adventuring companion and go out and explore the world. Alas, I'm an old bear now and have no adventuring companion. But I can live vicariously through Wardlings.

Thursday Terrain Corner

This week is going by nicely. It's certainly been quick so far, at least. Hopefully the next two days go by quick as well and we can get to that sweet, sweet weekend. Though mine will mostly consist of cleaning out the bear den. It's supposed to warm back up some and I could use to do some dusting. So, while I make my domacile nicer, let's make your gaming tables look nicer.

Today in the Terrain Corner we have: Tabletop Scenics Orc Kustom Freeks Den Bundle Now Available, Paizo Previews Cemetary Terrain Set, New Corn Sacks From Tabletop-Art, and Baueda Releases 15mm Chinese Pavilion.

WizKids Announces Magic: The Gathering: Ravnica Inquisition

Many of you out there have played Social Deduction games. If you've played Werewolf (not the RPG), then you've played one. WizKids is teaming up with Wizards of the Coast to bring you a new one. It's called Ravnica Inquisition and it plays as you'd expect. You have a group of 5-10 players, some of whom are Agents of Bolas and some of whom are Gatewatch Loyalists, but nobody's quite sure who's who. That's up to you to decide.

Paizo Previews Pathfinder Battles: Ruins of Lastwall set

While I wouldn't say that I'm "afraid" of bugs, I wouldn't say that I'm thrilled with them, either. I won't go running and screaming from a roach, for example, but I don't exactly want to run over and pick it up. I'd much rather just stomp it and throw it out. Well, the bugs in fantasy games are the ones capable of stomping on you. In this Pathfinder Battles: Ruins of Lastwall preview, Paizo shows off some of the insect inclusions in the set.

WizKids Posts New Warhammer: Age of Sigmar: The Rise and Fall of Anvalor Preview

The enemy of my enemy can also be my enemy. In The Rise & Fall of Anvalor, players must work together... sort of... to protect the city from the rampaging hordes. However, everyone wants the city for themselves, and at the end of the game, only one group can fully control the city. So, while you look to build your resources, you must also try and keep your opponents/allies from doing the same. WizKids has posted up a new preview of this board game coming out next month.

Paizo Posts New Pathfinder Battles: Legendary Adventures Preview

Longtime readers know my love for giant minis. I mean, a figure that's 32mm to eyeline can be cool and all, but give me the really big figures (in fact, just yesterday, I was able to score a Colossal Red Dragon that WotC made). In the upcoming Pathfinder Battles: Legendary Adventures set, Paizo will be giving you some more big figures. In this preview, we get a look what else will be coming in the set.
