    Freebooter Miniatures will be making their way to Salute in just over a week and they’ll be bringing a load of new booty with them. They have a quartet of new Freebooter’s Fate minis in the form of Jamon Borodino, Kasper, Piccina, and Lilith. They’ll also be giving people a chance to try out their new Freebooter’s Fate Battles combat system. It’s designed to make it so you can play with more figures on the board, but still play quick as though you were doing a smaller skirmish.

    Dead Earth Games has announced their second gaming project, The Shattered Crown. They hope for it to be up on Kickstarter in June. They are currently in playtesting and actively seeing more people interested in giving their new system a whirl. The game system looks to straddle the fantasy/historical line. They are looking to give the game a “historical wargame” feel, but not hold to the constraints of, you know, only using historical figures in it. So you can feel free to create your own kingdoms with their own lords and knights and vassals and so forth. And there’ll be magic, too. Because magic’s cool. (I realize that can sound like a snarky statement, but it’s not meant to be) Anyway, you can join their group and download the playtest rules now.

    Wargames Illustrated is under new management. But it’s also sort of old management, if you think about it. Dan Faulconbridge has been working with the magazine for 10 years now. He’s taking over from Editor in Chief John Paul and owner Peter Simunovich. The magazine will still be associated with Battlefront, who will continue to distribute it. Also, the look of the magazine won’t change much in the near future. While there are some changes in the works, the WI you’ve loved will still be the one you’ll be getting.

    Mad Robot Miniatures hates snow. We’ll have to agree to disagree on that fact, but that’s beside the point. The point is that they hate snow so much that they’re letting you buy their products at a lower cost. For this weekend only, you can get 15% off your order in their webshop on everything they make. There’s no stipulation that you have to hate snow too. So even if you love snow, you can still get the discount on your order.

    Nostalgic Bid Kid Games is running a Kickstarter campaign for Find My Monsters, their new card games. Yes, card games, because Find My Monsters is two games in one. The games are a sort of Memory-style matching game designed for little kids all the way up to big, nostalgic kids. In the first, and simpler of the two, you’re just trying to match like-colored monsters. In the second, the points total on each monster comes into account. So while you may not have the most monsters at the end, if you have the most points, you win.
    The campaign is up and and is set to run for another 20 days.

    Arcana Games has launched their Kickstarter campaign for Blood & Bone, their new low-fantasy RPG. What is “low fantasy?” Well, think Game of Thrones. Sure, there are a lot of fantasy elements (zombies, dragons, etc), but it’s more the actions of the humans involved that drive the story. It’s a bit closer to “historical, medieval RPG” than it is the “classic fantasy” world of Tolkien et all.
    The campaign is closing in on being half-funded, but there’s still 31 days left on the clock to reach their target.

First off, they’ll have Kings of War demos going on the Tablescapes Tiles they have from Secret Weapon Miniatures (Mantic’s the exclusive distributor of those in the UK and Europe). You can also try out Dungeon Saga. For Mars Attacks, you’ll be able to pick up one of the new Giant Martian Robot minis (though at 7″ tall, it’s not really a “mini”). Plus, they’ll have demos of DreadBall and DreadBall Xtreme. Play a demo, get a £5 voucher to get a starter. Mantic will also be selling the last few minis from their Deadzone Kickstarter. If you wanted to get some of these special minis, but didn’t have a chance before, you’ll have one last one at the show.

    Warploque Miniatures has a big one for you today with the release of their Undead Leviathan figure (it’s not really accurate to call it a “mini”) for Arcworlde. Because, let’s be honest, who wouldn’t want to at least entertain the idea of playing a game where one of the models you can use is a flying, undead whale? I know I would. I need to look into this more.

    In this grouping we’ve got: New Carthaginian Shield Transfers from Victrix, More WIPs pics of the Queen Of Hearts by Kabuki Models, New Magnetic Foil 32mm Rounds from Tabletop-Art, some more episodes of The Fiver from The Meeple Mechanic, The Nexus Terror from Icarus Miniatures Artwork Preview, Meet Brunhild and The Flag for War of Wonders Miniatures Game, Kromlech New Release – Hobby Drill and Super Glue Activator, New Ogre Cossacks Band from Scibor, New 15mm Hippogriff Aerodyne pre-order from Darkest Star Games, and Previews of the Harlequin Burglar for ShadowSea.
