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.

Cthulhu Coins Up on Kickstarter

Ultimate Custom Coins has partnered with Sandy Petersen to create a set of ten Limited Edition Cthulhu Mythos Coins for their Metallic Legends line of coins.

These are solid metal coins that are two inches in diameter, weigh about two ounces each, have amazing 3D sculpted artwork, and come with a display stand.  They can be used for display, game markers, or first player tokens. These coins will only be produced this year. After this year, the molds will be DESTROYED and they will NEVER be produced again.

WizKids and Vallejo Partner to Create New Paint Line

WizKids, the industry leader in high quality pre-painted & unpainted miniatures, is pleased to announce a new partnership with premier hobby paint brand Vallejo.

The first release as part of this partnership will be an all-new line of custom WizKids Paints. These paints will be specially formulated and will be available in colors specifically designed to complement WizKids iconic unpainted miniatures lines.

“With more than 50 years in the industry, Vallejo stands out as one of the most popular and high-quality brands of hobby paint in the industry. A leader in this field, they were the first to introduce acrylic colors for miniatures,” said Justin Ziran, president of WizKids. “We are looking forward to learning new techniques and innovating with Vallejo on new products and programs.”

Vallejo’s WizKids line of paints will be released in late 2019 and will feature all-new colors that are perfect for hobbyists to enjoy as they create their most immersive miniatures yet!

“We are very proud to be entering this new venture with WizKids,” said Alex Vallejo, CEO at Vallejo.
