Walker Cabin


From the release:

Finger and Toe Models announces release of the 28mm PDF Walker Cabin.

Everyone dreams of riches, but the Walkers lived a short walk from the Oak of the Golden Dream, the site of California’s first gold rush. Times were tough, and the little cabin had to do for the family of fourteen. They lived long enough to see their golden dream–from the studios whose early talkies used their cabin as a set. The Walker Cabin can be any hard luck cabin found in the canyons and deserts of the American Southwest.

Remember, every Finger and Toe model comes with SMOOSH ASSURANCE: if ya’ll smoosh your Walker Cabin, a new set waits your summons from hard drive and printer.

From the article:

Your rifle company is well-equipped for assaulting and crushing the enemy. Prepare your assault with your Mark IV tanks. They will pulverize Jerry’s gun nests with high-explosives and rake his trenches with machine-gun fire. Then send in your highly-trained rifle platoons to clear out the trenches and breakthrough.

With a gap opened up, send in the fast Whippet tank to machine-gun and run down the enemy on the run. No doubt the enemy will try and counterattack, so have your machineguns set up to cut down their infantry and carefully sight your 18 pdr artillery guns to knock out German A7V tanks.

Board Game Quest posts Deadwood review

Board Game Quest takes a look at the Deadwood game from Fantasy Flight Games and lets you know their thoughts on the subject.



From the post:

I love worker placement games, but I hate when I have a plan and a player places a worker, always randomly, at least in my mind, on the space I want. I would love to just flick his worker like I was playing Pitch Car…or better yet, assassinate the worker.

If you have ever had a train of thought similar to that while playing a worker placement game, then Deadwood just might be the game for you…

Deadwood is a “wild west” themed worker placement game for two (really three, but more on that later…) to five players that plays in between 30 to 60 minutes. Deadwood plays best with 4-5 players.

Laserburn Showcase and Offer shows off a gallery of all their Laserburn releases as well as lets you know about a special offer they’re running.

V106 Law Officer Air Raft with miniature


From the announcement:

Last week all of us at reached the end of a six month project to re-master and re-release all of the classic 15mm scale Laserburn vehicle codes. Its been a constant part of our lives for this entire time and while the odd thing was a little troublesome on the whole it was a great experience. The reason not least for this being the outpouring of adoration and joy towards us from science fiction wargamers both young and older at our efforts. In some cases notably the V011 Scorpion Air Lander and the V106 Law Officer Air Raft which would have never seen the light of day again but for this process. One being so heavy in white metal that it would be impossibly expensive for customers and the other the loss of its mold stock due to age. As a result we are rounding up the whole range and the Laserburn experience so that you can see it all. From the first to the last here are all the vehicles in all their glory on our blog. Click the link.

So if you adore Laserburn think about adding to your collection and if you decide to then we will, over the next seven days, throw in for free a Surprise Packet of Laserburn products. Bigger the order bigger the surprise but you will get something cool in even the smallest Laserburn order.
