We've made it all the way to the eve of the weekend. Just gotta push through today and we'll be there.

Well, while it seems like we dodged one bullet here in Georgia the other day, only getting some rain. It's looking tonight like we might get a bit of accumulated precipitation. Though considering tomorrow it's supposed to get to 38 and the day after it's supposed to be sunny and 51, I'm not really worried about it.
I can't really say the same for the rest of GA. They seem like they're going freaking nuts. But waddyagonnado?
I'm just looking forward to tomorrow when I'm getting my next tattoo. *squee with excitement!*

Before then, though, we need to get you some bite-sized stories. So let's go ahead and do that.

Today we have: ArmiesArmy 15mm Cold war Kickstarter Breaking Through Stretch Goals, Khurasan releases 15mm PMCs (or special ops), Gob'z'heroes Breaking Through Stretch Goals On Kickstarter, New Iron Reich Goblin Squad Available From Kromlech, FatMan Productions introduces Awakening: Recon, Prang Raider packs and platoon now released From the Ion Age, The Guildmate Half Rack Tray Available From Tectonic Craft Studios, New alternative driver for Titan-Forge zeppelins, Khurasan releases 15mm Middle Eastern Heavy Weapons set, Alternative Armies: 28mm Undead and Monsters range released with freebies, and New Lava Bike/Cavalry bases Available From Dark Art Miniatures.

So as we sort through our Halloween candy let's take a look at some bite-sized stories, shall we?
