Dave here again with another run-down of the latest gaming news.

Battle Foam and Infinity are joining forces for Gencon 2012

Battle Foam will have an exclusive new Infinity model at their booth at GenCon Indy this year. Check it out.















From the notice:

Hello Gamers,

We are happy to announce a very special early release that will happen at GenCon in Indianapolis this summer.

The great guys at CB really want you to stop by and say hi. Take in a demo or check out their great display at the Battle Foam booth.

To make it special they have designed a really amazing box set that will feature an awesome TAG with an additional Girl Model.

This will be a box set that will be available later in 2012 for everyone to purchase, but we will have a small quantity on hand at GenCon only at the Battle Foam booth.

The box set will be a mercenary choice that will be very appealing.

Prices and details will be made available as we get closer to the con.

I'm Mad Dave one of the team's growing collection of tabletop gaming nerds. I was raised on a healthy diet of TV like Blake 7, Doctor Who and Star Trek with a side of sword and sorcery / sc-fi movies and a large dollop of board games like Cluedo, RISK and Hero Quest. You know your a gaming nerd if: You bring toy soldiers to work? You bring toy soldiers to work and you work has nothing to do with toy soldiers? Most of you jackets / coats have dice in one of the pockets? You hate throwing away packaging because you know it's actually a ruined building or field generator? You have a collection of old packaging? You can find something relevant to your hobby i.e. books, magazines, figures etc in almost every room in your house? I no I'm a nerd because I've done all of the above, how many of these made you smile and nod yes to?
