Elder SignFor fans of miniature games, check out these amazing previews of the Worldworks Games/ Wyrd Miniatures TerraClips terrain sets. Pretty impressive stuff.

Fantasy Flight Games keeps churning out the great goodies: The Dust Tactics core set is being revised, but don’t worry, it’s full of brand new stuff for those of use who already have the current core set, and the only change is to the points system (which you can download).

The excellent card game Arcana is being revised and expanded; there’s lots more information about the upcoming deck-building game set in Terrinoth, Rune Age, in this video introduction; and the latest Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay supplements are Omens of War and the upcoming Black Fire Pass (for you dwarf fans).

Z-Man Games has secured the licence to the comic book/HBO series The Walking Dead, and will be bringing it to a boardgame. Their latest newsletter previews three upcoming games: Quest: A Time of Heroes, a fantasy RPG style game in a box; Undermining, a brain-burning game of mining for the best resources; and The Ares Project, a sci-fi game that emulates the great genre of real-time-strategy games.

That’s all from me this Friday; have a great weekend, and good gaming!
