There's tons of different reasons that someone might miss out on a Kickstarter campaign. But just because the timer's run out doesn't mean that you've lost the chance to get all the cool extras and special pricing. For example, Painting Polygons is now taking late pledges for their Animal Adventures: Secrets of Gullet Cove campaign. Want to get yourself some babypuppies and pretty kittes for your D&D games? You can get your name on the list to get them now.
Last Sword Miniatures is running a new Kickstarter campaign to get you some more elven figures for your 9th Age games. This time around, they're focusing on the more elites and highborn of the army, with several different types of knights and much more.

Tomorrow, we'll get the next full batch of updates for the A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game. If you're like me, whenever a game you play is getting updated, you're chomping at the bit for every bit of info you can get. Will your favorite units change? Will a unit that gives you trouble get updated? What's going to happen in the meta? Well, to help out some, CMON has another preview of what changes will be coming, along with a look forward at the game after those updates hit the street.
The Clone Wars saw the clone armies of the Republic facing off against the robotic forces of the Separatists. But despite one army being made up of clones and the other coming off an industrial assembly line, not every trooper was identical. There were elites, specialists, and more. In this preview, we get a look at two new units coming for Star Wars: Legion that are a step up from the average squad.
With the Luftwaffe straffing down from overhead, the Allies at Dunkirk had to make a hasty retreat, getting onto whatever could float to try and leave the continent and escape to Britain. In this scenario for Cruel Seas, that intense escape is played out on your tabletops. Interconnected with the other scenarios posted for Bolt Action and Blood Red Skies, it's a multi-game event.
WWII did not get off to a good start for the Allies. The combined armies of France, Britain, and Belgium were chased all the way to the sea where they had to perform a daring escape on the shores of Dunkirk. In this new scenario for Bolt Action, players take on the role of these opposing forces, the Allies working to get as many men to safety while the Germans are trying to wipe them out completely.
Warlord Games has a new scenario out for Blood Red Skies. The beginning of WWII saw the Allies being chased by rapidly-advancing German forces as they tried to make it out to the coast. Once there, the Allies had to form a very hasty retreat at the beaches of Dunkirk while the Luftwaffe attacked from above. In this scenario, you can replay that harrowing ordeal on your tabletops.
Gaming is a global industry. Games can be designed in one country, developed in another, and produced in a third for shipping all over the world. So, while something may not be taking place right in our back yard, it can still have an effect on the gaming world. For example, the deadly Coronavirus epidemic. Wyrd has announced that due to this terrible disease, their releases are going to be delayed.
WizKids' Organized Play events let players get some cool prizes, including minis they wouldn't be able to get elsewhere. They're currently showing off their Green Arrow and the Justice Society OP kit for HeroClix, including, of course, Green Arrow and some of his friends. Have yourselves a look.
Padme Amidala wasn't your average monarch. She didn't just sit on her throne, occasionally make a speech, and generally stay to herself. She was ready to get out there and fight just like anyone else when the Separatists came calling. Soon, Star Wars: Legion players will be able to add her to their forces. But not just her, Cad Bane is coming along as well, representing said Separatists. In this preview, we get a little look at what you can expect when they are released.
Gamers, by and large, want to be the first ones to get the new stuff when it's released. They want the latest figures as early as they can. Well, if you're a HeroClix player, you'll want to know about WizKids' pre-release events for the upcoming Justice League Unlimited set for HeroClix.
The Trade Federation has a huge military industrial complex behind it. Their factories are able to pump out droids, weapons, and vehicles at an astounding rate. One of those iconic vehicles is the AAT Battle Tank. It's armed with all manner of weaponry to help the Trade Federation assert itself as a major presence in the Separatist movement. Soon, you'll be able to add this formidable tank to your forces in Star Wars: Legion.
April showers bring May flowers. And Mayflowers bring Pilgrims. But May will simply be bringing some new releases for both Monsterpocalypse and Riot Quest from Privateer Press. They're showing off the new items that will be available. And I almost could put this in a Terrain Corner article, since Monsterpocalypse is getting a whole bunch to build up your city (for you to then bash to pieces, of course).
Many of you have probably see a game of Kings of War: Vanguard being played. Or maybe you've only seen posts online about it. You've been curious and want to know more.

With all the tensions in the world today, it's easy to imagine ending up in some sort of post-apocalyptic scenario. Unfortunately, that's just where you find yourself in Zona Alfa, a new near-sci-fi skirmish miniatures game where players are looking for resources to survive in a nuclear-blasted Eatern European Exclusion Zone. You can pick up your copies of this new scenario-based, campaign-driven game now.
The folks over working on Breachstorm are looking to add even more factions to the game. Of course, adding just anything would possibly unbalance the game. Best to thoroughly test everything before it becomes official. As such, they're launching Project Blacksmyth that will fulfill both goals. New factions will be released as beta test rules. You, the players, can test them out, give feedback, and things can be altered before the official release.
We're still a bit of a ways from spring, but here in GA, it already feels like it could easily be late March. It's a perfect time to go out and get a bit of nature in your lungs. But if you're not able to go out and enjoy the weather, you can still bring nature inside with Moonstone. And this month, you can pick up the figures and rulebook for cheaper than usual.

Grenzer Games has launched a Kickstarter campaign for 15mm Imperial Roman figures. These are some of the most highly-detailed 15mm figures you're going to find around. They're working on various ancient lines of miniatures, with these being the first. The end goal is to create a miniatures game for them (rules already in the works), so you can get in on the ground floor now.
The folks over at One Page Rules have been busy behind the scenes and they're ready to show off all that time and effort. They have posted up a very large update that gives you not only a new faction and units for their current games, they've also created an entirely new game called Covering Fire. If you're a fan of more freeform games, then Covering Fire is for you as there's no measuring, no solid turn structure, and relies on a series of reactionary actions.
