Arena Rex

Are you not entertained!?
I know I am by the miniatures that Red Republic Games releases for Arena Rex. A bit of editorializing: I think they're some of the highest-quality figures out there. Their modelling is masterful. And they've got two new ones available for you. Cato and Ladon comprise the newest faction for the game. You can order them now.
Saturday and I have all the baking to do. Baking for friends. Baking for coworkers. Baking for friends that are coworkers. Baking for coworkers that are friends.
I mean, I bought 4 pounds of unsalted butter. I'm going to be busy today.
But before I get up to my elbows in cookie dough, I need to type up those review articles I know you all so desperately desire.

Today we have: Arena Rex, Seikatsu, New York Slice, Dragonfire, Sid Meier's Civilization: A New Dawn, Macroscope, Kingdomino, and 1750: Britain vs. France.

I foresee making a lot of similar posts along this line in the upcoming week or so. The fine fellows have wrapped up their stay at PAX Unplugged and are ready to tackle the holidays. They've got their seasonal sale going on over in their webshop now. If you want to get some of the (IMO) prettiest models out there on the market today for a bit cheaper than you'd usually have to spend, head over to their store now.
The gladiator pits are equal-opportunity. Man, woman, beast, all can take to the pits and fight for supremacy. Iocasta left her whole tribe and their way of life in pursuit of something more. What she found was joy in hearing her name shouted while she fights in the arenas. Now, you can add her to your collection for Arena Rex.
It feels like a short week, but it's certainly been a busy week. Yesterday, got pulled aside for a vital project before the A Song of Ice and Fire Miniatures Game Kickstarter launches later this month. That was a cool couple of hours. But yeah, just been busy all-around. Ready for that weekend! Gonna be making some dark-chocolate-orange confections (cookies, candy sticks, and candied orange peel) over the weekend. ... Might make some gumbo, too. Haven't gotten that far ahead. But when making that stuff, I should fill up on some bite-size gaming stories, so I don't eat all the cookie dough or something.

Today on the platter we have: Red Republic Games Previews Special Arena Rex Dice, Everlasting Wet Palette Coming To Kickstarter, The Board Game Table Mat by Tabletop Companion Now Available, Final Day for DeepWars Kickstarter Campaign, Dice Rolling Tool Up Online, and Brigade Models release 6mm Combat Cars.

Last month, Red Republic Games made their second ever trip to Adepticon. Their booth was insanely popular, yet again, as people swarmed it, looking to get their Arena Rex goodies. One of those goodies included Leika, a new fighter. Well, those of us that couldn't make it to the show can now pick up our own. She's available over in the company's webshop.
I'm just gonna say this. Patrick Masson is one hell of a sculptor. The new release from Red Republic Games for Arena Rex, Dextarius, looks just awesome. See for yourself.
Dextarius, by the way, is the name of the horse. Ywain is the guy in the helmet and cape.
So, we had a couple board game sales launch. We also had a couple terrain sales going on. But what about miniatures games, themselves? Well, the folks at Red Republic Games have you covered there. They've started their Saturnalia Sale over in their webshop.
Being labeled a bastard is generally a death sentence for anyone with true ambition. However, Ywain has used his privileges as the son of a well-loved courtesan to gain training and equipment that most people could never afford. Now, he fights in the arena in order to make a true name for himself and to prove that bastards can be badass.
The attendees of Gen Con often get a chance to pick up minis before they're available to the general public. Such was the case with those that stopped by the Red Republic Games booth, as they could get themselves Valen, as well as the new gaming mat. Fret no longer, those that couldn't get to the show (and didn't get a ninja shopper). Both are now available in the Arena Rex webshop.
It was really cool getting to catch up once more with the guys from Red Republic Games while at Gen Con. It was their first year at the show and their booth was always loaded with people looking to get the latest and greatest. It was agreed, from several other people I talked with, that the figures for Arena Rex were some of the best at the show. And now they've added two more figures to their line. Check out Hroka and Cao-Ta.
The last convention I attended was Adepticon. It was a great time. One booth that was constantly swamped with people was the Red Republic Games booth. People were waiting in line to get their Arena Rex miniatures. Now Red Republic will be at Gen Con, and they've got some cool, new stuff they've brought with them.
One of the biggest hits at Adepticon this year was Red Republic Games and Arena Rex. The gallery I had of their display case was, by far, the one most liked, commented on, and shared (it's here in case you missed it). They pretty much sold out of everything they had. Granted, this is one time where "going home empty handed" is a good thing. Well, they'd had Khepros available as a pre-release at the show. If you weren't able to pick one up there, or weren't at the show to begin with, you can now get your own, as he's available for general release over in their webshop.
Man! Today sure has been busy! I've gotten a bunch of photos taken. I've talked to a lot of really cool people. I've gotten a demo of a brand new game (demo report forthcoming). And I've had Portillo's. Can't get any better than that, really. So if you've not been following the coverage over on the TGN Facebook Page, here's what you've been missing:
One of the best things about conventions is usually the companies will have special convention pricing for items. Well, what if you can't make it to the show? A lot of companies will run sales online during the show as well. Red Republic Games is doing just that this weekend.
Get on there, little dogie! Hup! Hup!
Hey there, pardners, it's time once more for a Review Roundup.
So let's get this rodeo on the road!

Today we have: Super Dungeon Explore: Forgotten King, Mage Knight, Lil' Cthulhu, Fleet Wharfside, Patchwork App, Techno Bowl, Rubicon's Opel Blitz, Arena Rex, Black Hat, Captain's Wager, T.I.M.E Stories: A Prophecy of Dragons, Quadropolis, Orphan Black, City of Spies, and Empires: Age of Discovery.

A new gladiator has entered the arena. And he'll be laughing all the way to the winner's circle. Or, at least, his companion will be. Anum has been released for Arena Rex by Red Republic Games.
Gamers are sort of known, stereotypically, for never really going anywhere. We're supposedly the type to stay in basements, only to come out to slink our way in the darkness to the LGS and then back again. Occasionally we go to a convention. But the reality is that gamers are just like other people. Some love to travel and see the world. Many of us are history buffs of some form or another. Well, Geek Nation Tours is here for those types of gamers with a pair of new tours they're doing.
Red Republic Games recently gave you the chance to download their rulebook for free from their website (and you can still go do that, if you want). Well, now they're giving you an opportunity to pick up their minis for cheaper than usual with their Saturnalia Sale.
Gamers today have to be thrifty with their time and money. I'd love to be able to just buy up every rules set I find, but it's just not feasible. So I like to get a look at a rules set, if possible, before I spend money on a game that I might not end up liking. Thankfully, various game companies have started putting their rules up online for people to try out. I like that. It shows trust in their product. "Look, we think we have an awesome game that you're gonna want to play. Read the rules for yourself." is what they're saying. Well, you can add Red Republic Games to the list of companies, as they've posted their rules for Arena Rex online for you to download for free.
We have made it to Friday, ladies and gentlemen. Rejoice!
And, like, go eat some candy or something because of Halloween. Have yourself a good time.
