Aww yeah, its almost the weekend! The news has been a bit slow this week but we still appreciate you sticking with us. We’ve got some quick things to share with you on this July 4th, so prepare yourselves! Check out these stories and gear up for some weekend gaming!
Announcements And Other Tidbits
- Warmachine’s Warcaster Chronicles : Blood & Iron is now available through Privateer Press. This novella features Cygnar facing Mercenarian pirates. Being boarded by pirates isn’t the only thing that Captain Shae has to worry about, though, as an assassin named Ghostmaker has his own agenda for Shae.
- A new preview has been posted for Fantasy Flight Game’s Star Wars RPG, The Age of Rebellion. Check out what you’ll be up against in this campaign!

- Flying Frog Production’s Dark Gothic deck-building game has come in and those who pre-ordered the game will have their hands on it shortly! The preview photos look pretty awesome and we’re looking forward to seeing it on tables!

- Need more Carcassonne? You got it! The 9th expansion, Sheep, Hills, and Vineyards, is coming next week to add to your collection.
- The Perry Brothers have left Games Workshop – its true! Some worry about the future of the LotR and Hobbit games since this has come to light, but the brothers want to focus on more historical games and follow their passions.
- Black Locust Games, the people behind the recent successful Kickstarter project, Regnum Angelica (called Kingdom during campaigning) are teasing new photos of their second game in the works!

Around The Office
- Some of you may have seen our recent Facebook announcement that with the craziness of the move, we’ve had to pack up a lot of our games in order to make this transition more smooth. That being said, we may be a little slow on reviews for the next month and a half, but will be back in full swing soon after Gen Con.
- We are still making preparations and finalizing what we’re going to be doing at our Meet and Greet event at Gen Con – if you’re coming to Gen Con and want to hang out, you should check out the event! Just search for Initiative Tabletop on the Gen Con events page!
- Raine has picked up Khador (yet again) and is busy working on painting his models before the final pack-out. Kae is hoping to finally sling some paint onto her Cryx Deathjack and make him ready for wiping out whatever gets in his path.
For those that don’t know, we are also on Instagram now under initiativetabletop. We opened the account with photos from Indy Pop Con and games that we’ve been playing at home, and soon there will be much more, so check us out and follow us for gaming goodies! We hope you have an awesome weekend full of gaming, freedom, and fun!
