Tabletop Game Terrain has released the new TGT: City of Ruins sets. These sets are designed to be as aesthetically pleasing as they are playable. Each building comes with a base that is either 6.25”x6.25”, 11.5”x6” and 12”x12” depending on the size of the kit. All pieces are modular allowing almost limitless combinations with the other pieces in the collection. Our entire collection of buildings amounts to almost 3.5 sq ft of terrain and can be purchased together in the City of Ruins Battle Board set!
This is the premiere line from TGT with an expected release of the TGT: City of Ruins road set and expansion set on April 15th and then the release of another range in March!
All TGT sets are designed and priced with gamers in mind. Simply put, we wanted to begin producing lines that are VERY affordable, playable, and awesome looking on the table. With TGT, gamers won’t have to buy expensive building after expensive building to make a great game board. Make sure to check out the gallery on our website to see the terrain in action.
RHQ-TV have just broadcast episode 20 where we take a look at the new Mantic Games Abyssal Dwarfs. We also get a look at their Orcs which will be released next along with their Dwarf King’s Hold board game. This is a fantastic episode with lots of great fantasy stuff.

The entry fee for each game will be $7.00 and all proceeds will go to “Siege of Augusta”. The winning side of each game will have an engraved plaque that shall be displayed in the store all year.
Game #2: After a bloody battle the forces of Chaos and Orks pushed through the outer defenses of the hive city and the invasion is well underway. With the momentum of their first victory the forces of evil will gain an extra “Strategic Asset” in game two. The Space Marines and Imperial Guard have fallen back deeper into the city to try and gain a foothold. All the while the Tech-Priest have found that the Black Stone Fortress is starting to activate and showing signs of life. Can the forces of man win the day or will this world fall?
The awards for the Dust Tactics Tournament at Vul-Con Arena I have been posted.
From their announcement:

This will be an Operation First Strike Tournament that will be run Swiss Tournament Style with tie breaks based on strength of schedule, points, and if necessary, achievements.

Doors open at 10am to the general punter (earlier for competition players).

The new majority shareholder of Wargames Factory has sent a letter responding to public comments made about his acquisition of the company.
Public Statement from Wai Kee Hui regarding Wargames Factory
It has been a little more than 2 months since Tony Reidy posted his “Open Letter to Wai Kee Hui” on The Miniatures Page website. I was aware of this “letter” at the time of posting and although I was annoyed at his unprofessional tone and angered at what amounted to many outright lies, I decided that my best course of action was to stay out of online politics and instead focus on trying to get the company I had recently become majority shareholder of into functional order.
The past 2 months have been extremely busy with trying to figure out what orders had been placed and paid for before I took over, inventorying product that was still in stock at Triangle and setting up a new order platform and shipping facility. These goals have now been accomplished, with all outstanding orders shipped and our web store reopened.
Throughout this process I was cognizant of the defamation of character my associates and I were receiving in Cyberspace at the hands of Tony Reidy and Howard Whitehouse. Even though at many times the temptation was strong for me to jump in and tell my side of the story, I refrained from doing so while we were struggling to put Wargames Factory back on track. Now that we are on the road to recovery, and in lieu of increasingly slanderous postings being made by Tony and Howard, I feel the time has come for me to set the record straight.
I have just added some exciting new greens of Bob’s to Olleys Armies workbench page. They include a new type of 28mm scale Scrunt, he’s in heavy armour, with breast plate, shoulder armour, hanging plate armour and helmet. At the moment there’s one body type, but there will be a choice of 6 different right and left weapon/arms.
I’ve also added a Cart pulled by 3 dogs, we imagine it to be used to take ammo, weapons and supplies to the frontline. These miniatures along with some greens of Scrunt Mutant Hunters (still to be added to the workbench page) have just been sent off to be moulded and cast, so hopefully they will be available for sale on the Olleys Armies Website very soon.
The print files for the Hell Dorado English book are at the printers. They are reviewing the files for pre-press. Next there will be print proofing, printing, and then shipping to our warehouse where they will go to distribution and retail. We’ll keep the anxiously awaiting fans updated on the process as we go.!
The first of the Ludi Vulcani games for Phoenix Vul-Con 2012 is now complete. Those attending Vul-Con Arena I on April 2nd at Gamer’s Inn in Mesa, AZ will be the first to see it in person. It is definitely impressive and the picture below just doesn’t give you the true sense of the magnitude of this 5′ diameter arena.
Playing a game of Gladiator in this arena with 90mm scale gladiators will be a real treat and the top players at Vul-Con Arena I will receive medals at the award ceremony that closes the event. If you haven’t pre-registered yet for Arena I, now is your chance. Rush over to http://www.vul-con.com to sign up and lock in seats for your favorite games.
