Wyrd Previews Twisted Horrors For The Other Side

Well, I mean, I realize we just passed Valentine’s Day, but the vibe I’m getting from the new The Other Side preview from Wyrd is decidedly more Halloween.
You know, I bet it’s a real pain when you get something stuck in your eye that’s in the middle of your back. That’s gotta be annoying.

Wyrd Previews The Undying For Malifaux/Through the Breach

Since both Malifaux and Through the Breach take place in the same universe, Wyrd is able to create products that give content for both at the same time. In this case, it’s their Story Encounter and Adventure Box. It’s got story and adventure for the RPG, while also some cool, new models for the minis game. It’s also their Monday Preview.

Wyrd Previews Rooster Rider for Bayou Bash

It’s Monday. And while that may not mean it’s the greatest day of the week, it does mean that Wyrd has a new preview to show off. They continue along their looks into the upcoming Bayou Bash board game with a preview of the Rooster Rider.
… I might just stop by Publix for some chicken on the way home…

Wyrd Releases Alt. Lazarus Mini

I love alternate sculpts for minis. Even with some small modding, armies in a minis game can potentially look a bit samey. A great way around that is alternate sculpts for figures. Because unless you’re a pro sculptor, you might do a few cuts here and there, but it’s not anywhere near what a company can do with all their resources behind making a mini. Well, Wyrd has released a new Alt. Lazarus model. But you can’t just pick it up in their webshop. Nope, they make you work for it (in a good way).

Wyrd Previews Waldgeist Rider For Bayou Bash

Born on the bayou!
Born on the baaaaaaaaaaaayouuuuuuuuu!

While some of us had yesterday off, the folks over at Wyrd were still working along as usual. This means they had their regular Monday preview. So, while it’s a little later, better late than never.

Wyrd Previews Soulstone Aficionado

Humans love shiny rocks. Gold. Silver. Diamonds. Any sort of gemstone. They were all just shiny rocks that people decided were worth something. Soulstones, however, have more than just “shiny rock” value. They also hold great power. And few are able to appraise and evaluate these rocks more than the Soulstone Aficionado. Check out this pursuit for Through the Breach in Wyrd’s Monday Preveiw.

Monday Terrain Corner

Back in the office after a busy weekend. How busy? Well, I made 2 fruitcakes, 2 batches of chocolate chip cookies, 2 batches of gingerbread cookies, 2 batches of cinnamon nuts, and then 1 batch each of salted caramel dark chocolate brownies, chip ‘n’ mint cookies, nutmeg sugar cookies with egg nog frosting, candy cane cookies, and an extra batch of that egg nog frosting to put on the other cookies. … Like I said, I was busy.
So, while my coworkers chow down on the fruit(cakes) of my labor, let’s get your gaming tables looking good.

Today we have: Wyrd Previews New Terrain, New Footbridges and Road bridges from Sally 4th, Heroic Maps – Giant Maps: Ice Base Khione Now Available, and Erdhexe Battlemat Now Available From Warzone Studio.

Anyway, they continue their look at The Other Side with a preview of the Infiltrators. When the King’s Empire needs to get information without their enemies knowing, they send in the Infiltrators. They’ll get the job done right.

Wyrd Posts Monday Through The Breach Preview

Wyrd’s Winter Wonderland Issue Is Your Gain

Working in the gaming industry, there’s a lot of going ahead with plans as set on your timetables and hoping that everything should work out right. Occasionally, they don’t. Something comes back from the printer’s that’s messed up. A sculptor’s work gets destroyed in a freak accident. Or you end up with a box of minis that are miscast. Unfortunately, that last one is what happened to Wyrd with their Winter Wonderland box that’s part of their holiday sale. However, their loss is your gain. They’re tossing in another mini with the box (though it will be a bit of a delay in getting your sets).

Wyrd Previews Propagandist From Above the Law

It could be said that all advertising is some form of propaganda. And, really, all the stories on here are a form of advertising. So, it could be argued, that I’m in the propaganda business. Though I’m not really sure I like the ring of that. But waddyagonnado? You’re gonna read about the Propagandist pursuit coming from the Above the Law expansion for Through the Breach.

Wyrd Previews Alternate Rasputina For Malifaux

I love alternate sculpts for minis. I truly do. They’re a great way to add some personality and customization to your armies and teams without having to be a professional modeller, yourself. Plus, for those that are sticklers for such, they’re not proxies, so they’re good in any tourney or event. Wyrd’s well-known for coming out with lots of alternate figures for Malifaux, and they tend to have a lot of them during their sales. In this case, it’s their upcoming holiday sale. Check out this alternate Rasputina.

Wyrd Posts Friday The Other Side Preview

While I’m taking the day off, the folks over at Wyrd aren’t. They’ve got their regular Friday preview up. This time, it’s the Armored Whelk.
… Man, the last time I thought about whelks was the last time I watched that Monty Python skit where John Cleese does the nature documentary in the middle of the people’s living room… Anyway, Armored Whelks (I’d name mine Lawrence).

Wyrd Previews The Bureaucrat For Through the Breach

Bureaucracy makes the world go ’round. It might not initially seem like the most thrilling class to take in a game, the one that has connections and is good at negotiations, but all of those are very useful skills to have. In Wyrd’s Monday Preview, they’re showing off the Bureaucrat specialization for Through the Breach. Go have a look-see.

Just yesterday, I was talking with my friend about a game and a rules question came up. We didn’t have the rulebook on hand, but we did have a digital version of it.
