From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.
Lots of things in the hobby to love this week, here’s just a few:
I am now saving my pennies for the upcoming release of Adeptus Titanicus, however just before that I picked up the new Gloomtide Shipwreck from Games Workshop:
More of a terrain piece, while this comes with rules, I intend to use it as part of a painting project (surprise!) incorporating some of my older models into a ghostly display. You’ll see them hit the painting tray before the end of June.
Villagers is a fun-looking new card drafting and village crafting game up on Kickstarter. The standard of even individually-produced games on Kickstarter is getting better all the time, and Villagers is no exception. It comes with a solo mode, but looks like a fun card game with similarities to 7 Wonders, a game I’ve enjoyed in the past. Head over the the Villagers project page on Kickstarter to see more.
The Green Mechanicum project at Iron Sleet has received another major update:
You need to read the full article on Iron Sleet for more. This is a fantastic project which I find truly inspiring through the modelling, painting, photography, and background. Wonderful stuff.
We’ll finish off this week with some artwork from Dominaria, Time of Ice by Franz Vohwinkel. You can click on it to see the larger version. In a single image this card represents to story of Ice Age (an old Magic set) where magical meddling changed the climate of the world catastrophically. Game settings have their history, and there are interesting options to consider when presenting that history in the game.
