Some of you had been by the Mantic HQ during one of their Open Days in the past. You got to see the latest figures, talk with the people that work there, and maybe even get some leaked information from Ronnie himself. Well, now you can do that 5 days a week as Mantic HQ is now open. They've created a new shop and play space that you can stop by and hang out in whenever you want (during open hours, of course).

Some of you might have heard or read the Mighty Tiny manga. For those that haven't, it's a far-off, distant future where mankind is no more. However, mice and rats have evolved to have human-like characteristics. The two groups almost never mix, and an uneasy peace exists between the two nations. However, tensions are brewing. Can a war be avoided? That's your goal in Mighty Tiny: Tales of the Old Empire, a new RPG that's up on Kickstarter now.

Fridaaaaaay! And I'm not stuffed up and my nose isn't running and I feel good! And I'm just excited overall because just yesterday, I tasted what could very well be my new favorite hot sauce I've ever had. I loved it so much that I went to the site they sell it at and bought not only a big bottle of that sauce, but they have a set of every sauce they make (14 total) for a ridiculously cheap price. So, that's what I'm eagerly waiting for. And while I wouldn't suggest putting hot sauce on gaming stuff, we do have some tasty, bite-sized stories for you now.

Today on the platter we have: Puppets War Holding Should Pad Sale This Weekend and Kraken Releases Alchemy Line of Dice.

Battlefront has started taking pre-orders for their new British book and units for Team Yankee. Get your name on the list and get these figures as soon as they're released.

The Blood Angels are the vampires of the Space Marine legions. But it's not all ripping apart throats. They do use ranged weapons too. In this instance, grenade launchers and volkite serpentas. These new units can be ordered now from Forge World to help flesh out your armies.

From the company that brought you Shroedinger's Cats, it's Pavlov's Dogs (anyone want to be their next game will be Darwin's Finches?). It's a new party game where players take on the role of pooches that are trying to complete different tests brought about by famous dogtors of old (not a typo). How fast are your reflexes? How good is your memory? You'll find out when playing Pavlov's Dogs. The game is up on Kickstarter now.

Wyrd has posted up some new artwork to get you excited about the upcoming faction for Malifaux, the Explorer's Society. They're the Daeva and they look like some sort of tall, lanky, gentleman. They've got really long arms and long fingers. They're like some sort of slender... man... or something.

I've been talking about weeks going by quickly. I realize now that I probably shouldn't've. I also just yesterday realized that we're coming up to a 3-day weekend, as we have Monday off here in the States. With these two things in mind, this morning has been taking an eternity. Either that or I'm just being super-efficient with all the work I've been doing so far. One of the two, anyway. So, while I wait and wait and wait for the day to get going, let's also look at making your gaming table look good.

Today in the Terrain Corner we have: Remnants of Battle 3D Printable Terrain Up On Kickstarter, Barrels and Crates Terrain Up On Kickstarter, Orc Stadium Terrain Up On Kickstarter, and Industrial Fans 2 Set Available From Kromlech.

Potato Pirates 2: Enter the Spudnet. It's a game that uses potatos (that are pirates) in order to help teach cybersecurity and computer networking.

Because that's the world we live in these days.

By the way, I'm not saying that there's a thing wrong with that. I find it absolutely amazing. Some people don't get concepts right away. If you can find a good metaphor that gives you the information in a new and creative way that does jive with your learning style, bring it on. This new standalone game does just that and it's up on Kickstarter now.
