Miniatures


It's Friday again. Now that I think about it... the week kinda went by fast... At least for me. I'm sitting here thinking, "wasn't it Tuesday just a day or so ago?" Apparently not. Oh well. I'm ok with this. Hopefully your week has been alright and you've been able to stay safe out there. These are strange times, indeed. As for me, I'm here to bring you your regularly-scheduled party platter of bite-sized gaming stories.

Today we have: New 2D Print Models Available From One Page Rules, Bushi Prime Strikers Available From Puppets War, Norse Foundry Running Dice of Crits Kickstarter, and Mystic Mariner and Mystic Noble Dice Available From Kraken Dice.

Are we only 1/4 of the way through the year? Sure. Does that make it a little early for a year-in-review post? Eh, the folks over at Privateer Press don't really think so. Let's face it, it's kinda felt like it's been a full year already. As such, they've got a bit of an update about how things have gone and a little about where they might lead.

It's been a while since we've heard from them, but the folks over at Avatars of War are still working hard, even in these strange times. They've even got a pair of new releases over in their webshop for you. If you're looking for some new fantasy minis, now's your chance to get some.

Halfway through the week and we're at the beginning of a new month. Welcome to April, everyone. Considering how things are in the world right now? I say we skip out on April Fool's. Alright? Good. But what we shouldn't skip out on are some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Legendary Dragons 3D Printable Files Up On Kickstarter and Blacklist Miniatures Previews Huge Dragon From Upcoming Kickstarter.

Considering nobody can really go out right now, and even deliveries are tough to get, pdfs is the name of the game when it comes to, well, gaming. And Modiphius is here to help with some for you for nothing. They've got their The Elder Scrolls Call to Arms Core Rulebook, as well as two free scenario books up on their website that you can download now.

Ok, so the Romans actually existed (and, I mean, they still exist). And Warlords of Erehwon is a fantasy game. However, there are many mythical and legendary things about the Roman Legions of ancient times and so the folks over at Warlord Games have decided that, sure, you can use your Roman Legions in games of Warlords. Why not? Head on over and check out this new army list.

Due to the outbreak of COVID-19, production and shipping has been delayed in all areas of the gaming community. While, most of the time, these delays are only negative, in this case, there's a small, silver lining around that cloud. Corvus Belli has extended their period to pre-order Operation Kladstrom, their upcoming starter set for Infinity. So, if you're wanting, you can have a couple extra weeks to get together funds for the pre-order.

No matter how much testing a company does, whenever their product goes out into "the wild," there's bound to be things that are found that could have possibly been better in the design. That definitely holds true for minis games that have quite a lot of different moving parts associated with them. Well, thankfully, many companies look to fix these issues. Steamforged, for example, has released a new Guild Ball Errata. Make sure you're playing with the right rules!

Games Workshop might be temporarily closed down due to COVID-19, but that doesn't mean they're not still working. They're taking pre-orders for a new made-to-order figure, Lieutenant Amulius. If you're looking to add a new space marine to your collection, go get your name on the list now.

If you were thinking that there wouldn't be a single sheep or goat as part of the Shepherd's Guild, you would be mistaken. They've got themselves a big one. It's Ram, and we get a look at just how they work on the pitch in this preview.

Sure, you're at home. But that doesn't mean you can't get some new stuff. One Page Rules is here to help alleviate your qurantine woes with new rules sets for both Age of Fantasy and Grimdark Future. As always, you can just head over to their website and download them now.

For the next couple Star Wars: Legion support units, Fantasy Flight is headed to prequel territory. They've announced that they're working on the Republic AT-RT unit as well as the STAP Riders for Separatists. Have yourselves a look at these two mechanical, fast-moving sets.

The British are still storming the beaches of Normandy, despite the sickness that's going around. The folks over at Battlefront have some more D-Day British for Flames of War that they've added to their website. Have a look for yourselves.

While stores and businesses might be temporarily closed, that doesn't mean there's not work going on. Behind the scenes, in living rooms all across the world, industry continues. In this case, it's some new Star Wars: Legion sets. Fantasy Flight has previewed two new Special Forces units that, after all this pandemic stuff finishes up, you'll be able to get for your collections.

As with most companies, there have been changes over at Ares Games based on the COVID-19 outbreak. They've posted up an article talking about what they're doing this time and what products will be affected as well as a hopeful timeline of when they'll be able to start sending things back out again.

With Coronavirus impacting every aspect of life, that includes not letting people go to work. As such, it's hard to get new things made. In this case, it's WizKids letting us know what products they'll be delaying due to the outbreak. They've posted up a list so you can know what might be affected by these delays.

At home and want to work on your Warmachine, Monsterpocalypse, or Riot Quest collections? Well, there's new releases for all three of those games available from Privateer Press. There's some new Warcasters, new Warjacks, nw giant monsters, and more. Have yourselves a look.

Sheep constantly grow their wool. If it's not sheared off, it could actually cause harm to the sheep due to overheating and other effects. So, if you've got a flock of sheep, you need someone to make sure they're cleanly cut. That's where Shearer comes in. He's the next Shepherd's Guild figure to get previewed for Guild Ball. Let's take a look.

Halfway through the week. We can do it. I believe in all of us. It's tough. I know. But we can and must carry on. I have faith in you all. And while we're munching on our non-perishable snacks, we can also grab a handful of bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Rausenburg Siege Corps Heavy Weapons Crew Available From Victoria Miniatures, Kraken Dice Warehouse Sale Extended Through Today, and New Desert Scorpions Available From Victoria Miniatures.

When you're talking about a guild of Shepherds, you're going to expect to see lambs. But Lamb for the Shepherd's Guild in Guild Ball is just some young sheep, barely able to stand. Nope, he's a football master and you can get a preview of him here.

It's just the theme of the day, unfortunately. Games Workshop has cancelled Warhammer Fest 2020 and other events all over the world. It's just not a good time to be getting together in big numbers.

Recently, a bunch of different governments put out updated guidelines for closings during the worldwide outbreak. Pretty much anything considered vital has been closed down. To comply with all these new regulations, Games Workshop is closing down their locations and to make sure that they're not spreading it via the mail, they're limited online sales as well.

Babypuppies! Eee!

If you're wanting a team in Guild Ball that lets you have a puppy on the field, you have a couple choices including the Butcher's Guild and Hunter's Guild. Soon, another doggo-friendly crew will be hitting the pitch. The Shepherd's Guild has a pair of squaddies, Hook and Crook that are the goodest of squadies. Check them out here.

Reach out. Reach out and touch someone. Well, not right now. We're supposed to socially isolate. You know who's good at that? The NRC Ranger for Fallout: Wasteland Warfare. You can pick up this new sniper for your forces now over in the Modiphius webshop.
