From the website:

NECA/WizKids is excited to announce a new Dice Masters game set in the Dungeons & Dragons Forgotten Realms universe.

“We’re excited to expand our Dungeons & Dragons portfolio with the addition of Dungeons & Dragons Dice Masters. Dice Masters is an all new game that utilizes WizKids Games’ proprietary Dice Building Game platform where players collect and assemble their “party” of adventurer dice and battle in head to head gameplay. Dice Masters has had huge initial success, is a very exciting platform and should fit perfectly with the world and lore of Dungeons & Dragons. You can expect to see some of the most recognizable monsters and characters, such as Kobolds, Beholders, Mindflayers, Dragons, Drow, and many more!” said Justin Ziran, president of WizKids Games. “We’re excited to work with Mike Elliott and Eric M. Lang, who brought the original Dice Masters game to life, and we are sure they will bring Dungeons & Dragons Dice Masters to the table top in unique and immersive ways.”

Nathan Stewart, Brand Director for Dungeons & Dragons, was equally enthusiastic. “We are excited about the addition of Dungeons & Dragons Dice Masters to the WizKids product line. We’re sure fans will enjoy this fun and unique way to experience the legendary heroes and monsters of the Forgotten Realms.”

The Dungeons & Dragons Dice Masters line will begin rolling out in Q4 2014. Products will include Starter Sets, Booster Packs, Play Mats, and a Storage Box to keep your Dungeons & Dragons Dice Masters collection in!

From the post:

Still thinking about how to back our Kuzaarik Forgers Kickstarter? One way to go is to get ready for Freeblades Arena! The initial test of Freeblades Arena focused on historical gladiators both to make sure we had the feel right and to support some of our fans who wanted such a set of rules. Now it is time to take it to the next level! Freeblades Arena is really about freeblades fighting arena combats, either as part of teams or on their own, in order to make some extra gold, try their skills or gain even more renown. While pretty much any model in our line will be able to fight in the arena, the core of the game is set around the arena fighters – you might consider adding these models as add-ons to your Kickstarter pledge that gets you the Kuzaarik models as a base freeband. The core Freeblades Arena Fighters are:

Black Rose Duelist
Black Thorn Bodyguard
Falkaaran Bladesister
Haradelan Questing Knight (any one of the four types!)
Kuzaarik Hinterguard
Trilian Enforcer
Urdaggar Boar Warrior

The Grular arena fighter is something you have not seen… yet!

Update about XenoShyft’s Kickstarter

From the announcement:

Hey guys, Mr. Black here, Lead Developer for XenoShyft, and I’m coming to you guys with some good news and some unfortunate news.

I usually start with the negative first, so we’ll get that out of the way:

Today was supposed to be the launch of the XenoShyft Kickstarter, but our approval process has taken longer than expected (usually this is a quick process, but it can get delayed- not something that has happened to us before )

So unfortunately it seems that our launch has been delayed until next week- we’ll let you know as soon as possible on the exact day.

I do feel bad about this delay, as I was excited as anyone about showing this off- plus I’m sure it’s a pain for you guys, so to make things a bit easier I’ve uploaded the entirely of the NorTec Troop Cards for you guys to see.

And of course, if you have any questions about the game itself, feel free to ask here, and I’ll answer what I can (some secrets must remain that… For now…)

Board Game Quests posts expected GenCon 2014 game releases

Board Game Quest has posted up a list of gaming companies coming to GenCon and what new releases they expect to have.
Many of the spots aren’t filled in yet, but will hopefully be so as the months progress towards the show.

From the post:

Everyone knows that if you want to find the biggest game releases of the year, you have to head over to the annual Essen Speil in Germany. But for those of us that can’t afford to jetset across the world, then the annual Gen Con game convention is one of the biggest game conventions in the U.S. Every year, 40,000+ games head to Indianapolis to devour booth food and hours of gaming. Smart publishers have learned to take advantage of this die hard crowd and almost always have a new game or two to release at the convention.

In order to prepare you for the con, I’ve decided to do some leg work for you again. I’ve contacted many of the game publishers that will be exhibiting at Gen Con this year to find out what their new releases are. Many already know what they will be doing, but others are only now just figuring it out. With that in mind, I will be updating this page all summer long as the convention approaches. So be sure to check back often to keep up on what’s debuting at the con. You can also follow us on twitter and will announce there when we’ve updated this page with new information.

Relics Erratas posted

Tor Gaming knows a balanced game is a happy game and so they’ve posted up errata for Relics to make sure the game is balanced.

Relics

From the announcement:

On this page you will find the Relics errata documents for the 1.2 edition rulebook (hardback A5 format and pdf format)

We have split the errata into five docs, one for the main rules one for each of the nations. None are too long, and some are quiet short! But we hope this will sort out some issues that people have mentioned to us and what not!

We’re always open to further feedback so if you have any feedback to give, pop it down below!

Meridian Miniatures preview “Tooth & Sword” range

Meridian Miniatures has announced a new line of miniatures they’re calling the “Tooth & Sword” line. The first mini green is posted, the Gerbil Adventurer.

Gerbil Adventurer

From the post:

This is the first figure from my coming line of “Tooth & Sword” Chibi adventure miniatures.

I’ve had a lot of fun learning to sculpt in this style, it providing a perfect counterpoint to my “Steam & Aether” range in both technique and mood and I’ve have a great deal of fun developing this menagerie of adventuring animals.

I’ve been sculpting these figures in the scant spare time I get from commission sculpting since December last year. A great deal of imagination has been put into each figure and a great deal of time in figuring out how to make a range of great looking unique characters that are in almost all cases single part figures.

This character was the first that I sculpted back before Christmas, nominally a Gerbil Ranger, I’ll be showing his companions over the next few days before I put the figures up for funding on Kickstarter which I beleive is a popular way to launch a range at the moment ;D

Third Eye Games is excited to announce our newest family-friendly RPG, Infestation: a Game of Bugs and Heroes. In this game, players take on the role of various bugs who gained intelligence from a house-wide event called The Awakening. They go on crazy adventures in various rooms (each with its own dangers) and battle for control over This House, the most disgusting and filthy domicile on the block. Every room, from Cabinet City to The Stinker to The Mange, is a treasure trove of garbage and filth and just waiting for your bugs to explore them. If you’re part of the ruling species you may get to take your pick of the treasure, otherwise you’ll need to use your instincts to take what you can.

Dating from the early 1980’s this vehicle is unique in the range in that it is the only civilian type flyer and it has more parts than others its size. We elected to keep the Sabre in white metal instead of resin and spent a lot of time cleaning up the original masters and putting them in new black rubber. The Sabre now looks as good again as it did the first day it appeared in wargaming stores across Great Britain. Our team are very pleased with the result.
