Corvus Belli recently released additional information for the ITS 2016 season, clearing up some ambiguity in the initial release. Starting on March 7th, all ITS tournaments will need to be announced one week in advance on the ITS website. Explanations for tournaments without an internet connection and additional pairing rules are also included.

Wrath of Kings, the tabletop skirmish game from Cool Mini Or Not, have released their first two player starter set. Honor and Trechary: Battle of Ravenwood comes with a quick start rule set, unit stat cards, models from Houses Goritsi and Nasier, and terrain templates. The starter set has an MSRP of $60 USD, placing it well below the average price for wargaming starter sets.
