Our new kit arrive ! We are very happy to announce you the released of our 30mm miniatures multi part kit for our Grant’s spectre army.
We begin by the legs this week.
The kit comprise : 5 different legs cast in resin. Compatible with Blight Wheel Miniatures and popular plastic (or metal) kits
We choose Resin a little more expensive, but the best for cast quality and better for fit on plastic kit. We choose also to design 5 different legs, not 3 or 4, but 5 because under this number we don’t think you can realise a beautiful army with a large number of soldier position.
Ral Partha has released new goblins for Demonworld. And they’re on bugs.

Bruno Galice only has 2 days left on their IndieGoGo timer. They’re already more-than-funded, but if you want in on these guys early, now’s your last chance. Note: There are even pirate goblin dice to be had!

The D6 Generation now has episode 110 online for your listening pleasure. In this episode:
This time the third chair is filled with 80 folks as the GenCon 2012 play by mob audience join us for the show!
First we play the upcoming Stronghold Games “Space Cadets” but “Mob style” with the help of Geoff Engelstein & his family. Can that many players take control of starships and battle it out in any kind of organazed way? Listen to find out.
Later Craig and Russ chat about two of their favorite purchases at GenCon this year: Evil Baby Orphanage from Wyrd Miniatures and Star Wars X-Wing from Fantasy Flight Games. S-foils have been locked in attack position as they dive in for a detailed review of both games.
All that and our other not-too-horrible segments including: – Total Fan Girl – Do You Ever Notice – When you wish upon a game – & More
Our new releases for September could not be more different from each other.
On the one hand there is grace, beauty and the seductive touch of the mysterious – and on the other hand there is Adombra.
Just kidding. We’re talking about Adombra (ASS 014), of course. Unless you really, really like small, furry rodents. Adombra provides the Brotherhood with a desperately needed specialist for ranged attacks. Her crossbow quarrels can strike down the Brotherhood’s foes swiftly and silently where the traditional daggers just cannot reach.
The other part of the releases consists of a dirty pack of sometimes cute, sometimes nasty little rats (ZUB 006). These vermin creatures can be used as counters for the Rat Hunt scenario or to beef up Fidanzata’s rat swarms or to bring some beauty to your bases and terrain. Well, to bring rats to it, anyway. There are 14 different rat designs and 21 randomly assorted little rodent bodies will be included in the blister pack – the ideal number for going hunting for rats in October.
Both products are scheduled to be released in week 37.
Mantic keeps chugging along with their DreadBall news. This post is all about the Veer-myn for the game.
From the update:
How can Veer-myn play in the DreadBall leagues? What about Orx and Forge Fathers? Aren’t they the enemy? Is this safe? These were the sort of questions that greeted the earliest non-human teams when they took to the pitch for the first time back in The Thudweiser Cup XXXV. Several explanations have been offered in official press releases, scandal sheets and on serious newsfeeds.
Battlefront gives us another look at the upcoming Open Fire book for Flames of War. This time it’s infantry.

In this week’s Open Fire Preview, we reveal some of the infantry including the first look at the American Paratroopers.

Creative Gamescapes™ is pleased and proud to announce its new “Level 2” product line which builds upon and supplements its successful Spaceship X tile sets. Level 2 allows gaming enthusiasts to add any number of upper floors to existing Spaceship X tile sets for what are literally whole new levels of gaming. Commented Shawn Stogsdill, one of CG’s founders, “Since spacefaring ships, medical laboratories, and heavy industrial facilities, which our original tiles were designed to resemble, will have multiple levels, our gaming sets needed to reflect that.” The Level 2 line offers 1st Floor Trusses, Upper Floor Trusses, Elevators, Staircases and Bulkheads.
For sale immediately in the Level 2 sets are four (4) 1st Floor Trusses, Eight (8) Bulkheads, and one (1) Elevator. These pieces are all precision laser-cut birch and fit seamlessly and snugly with the Spaceship X tiles. The Trusses are capable of supporting multiple levels of Spaceship X tiles. The Elevator, with two different designs, creates a realistic passage between levels and the Bulkheads are just plain awesome. All pieces may also be purchased individually.
Starting Friday at noon until Monday at midnight (USA Mountain Time), we will be offering a 25% discount at our webstore for our entire line. This includes the brand new Zombie Vixens which will be on our webstore at that point. To access the sale you will use code ty12 when you pay for your order. Thank you & enjoy!

A line of beautifully crafted 32mm miniatures, coming to you as high quality, individually checked resin casts to offer the absolutely best painting experience possible.
In the days between the fall of Atlantis and the great flood that would cover the entire world, conflict brews in the lush jungles and steaming swamps that someday would be the Mediterranean Sea. Six great tribes of dragons have settled in this fertile valley, each ruling a kingdom of mortal followers. Inevitably, tensions rise between them as they plot for control of the world. From the North, the humans worship the mighty Red Dragon who sleeps in the heart of the Great Volcano. To the South, in the deepest parts of the Undermountain, Anastyr – the Queen of All Black Dragons – lies brooding. This is their time, a time of Legend and Raw Magic Powers, a time of epic adventure: when the Dragons of Anastyr rule the Earth!
Warlord Games continues their never-ending quest to make a model for everything from WWII (and that’s a good thing). They’ve now got Soviet Naval Troopers available as reinforcements (meant: separately).
From the website:
Commonly known as ‘The Black Death’, troops of the Soviet Naval Brigade were a fearsome opponent in many land battles on the Eastern Front. Now you can add these lovely miniatures to your Russian army as single figure Reinforcements…
Wired has a new article up talking about the success of Reaper’s Kickstarter campaign and of the role of Kickstarter, in general, in the gaming community.
From the article:
This weekend, Kickstarter added a ninth million-dollar project to its most funded list. What makes this one interesting is that it isn’t an iPhone accessory, gadget, or celebrity rock project. It’s an assortment of over 200 fantasy figurines called Bones that can be used to play Dungeons & Dragons and other role-playing games.
