Welcome to The Weekender which is chock-a-block full of all the awesome stuff that's been going on during the week concerning tabletop gaming. We're talking about Games Workshop's digital presence and some cool Kickstarters too...

Weekender: Big Kickstarters & Battlefleet Gothic Returns


Kicking things off we get to have a look at one of the new 352 PACK Molle which is designed for you to take away with you on a plane and can hold up to 352 Space Marines (hence the name).

Battlefoam have also been working a new hard case which will also be suitable for flying so keep an eye out for that.

News Round Up

We also find some time to talk about some of the news stories that have sparked our imaginations this week

Dogs Of War Board Game Review

Justin has got his hands on Dogs Of War which is a euro-style board game by CoolMiniOrNot and Spaghetti Western Games by Palo Mori.

We get this game under the close cam and show off the components as well as going through the rules.

Games Workshop Going Digital

Games Workshop have quite a few interesting digital projects in the pipeline including the awesome Battlefleet Gothic: Armada which we saw a new trailer for this week.

Also on the cards is Blood Bowl II which launches soon as well as Total War: Warhammer which recently got a new trailer too.

Do you think Games Workshop might draw people into the hobby as a whole thanks to these games?


Kickstarters are back in force this month and we talk about two of them in particular which caught our eye.

  • The Dark Age Outpost by Idyllwild Games is looking to create a fantastic plastic Fort for your Dark Age gaming
  • The Icarus Project Sci-Fi Skirmish Game is also looking for funding to get their two main factions, the Nexus and Alliance ready for battle.

The Icarus Project also has a place to download their rules for free so if they have caught your attention with the models see if the rules match up well.

Competition Winners

Of course it wouldn't be a Weekender without some prize announcements and we have two for you.

Both the winners of the Paranormal Exterminators and Dawn's Jezebel Miniature are announced so listen out for your name.

Join Backstage To Watch The Weekender XLBS Tomorrow

Have a great weekend of gaming!
