Hello, TechRaptor readers. Here’s what you may have missed in the world of tabletop wargaming this past week!


First up is the startling announcement from Deraj Studios canceling their Kickstarter campaign for Portals: Worlds Collide. The campaign will be relaunched in the near future with a more concentrated effort according to the company’s Facebook and Twitter announcements.

Secondly is the news from Hawk Wargames on their Dropfleet Commander Kickstarter. The company has updated some of the stretch goals for their wildly successful crowdfunding campaign. The campaign currently has 10 days left, so time is running out if you’re still sitting on the fence about the game.

Privateer Press has announced that the final season of the Path of Devastation has begun.  Fallen Heroes completes this year’s narrative league as players try to cement their legacy within the Iron Kingdoms. The rules for this season include unique narrative scenarios that allow players to experience Warmachine and Hordes in a fresh way. Head over to Privateer Press for more information and campaign downloads.
