*does a little “It’s Friday” dance around the office* un-cha, un-cha, un-cha, un-cha, wakachika, wakachika, wakachika, wakachika, boom-nau-nau da-boom-da mananga-nanga, boom-nau-nau da-boom-da mananga-nanga. Oh, hey there. Did you know that it’s Friday? 3-day-weekend sort of Friday, even. Booyah!
Granted… I’ll still be back posting news on Monday, but don’t let that spoil the mood. It’s still a Friday after-all.

And with that we have our regular batch of bite-sized stories we’ve collected here for you.

This time around we have: New Sarissa Precision Dutch/Belgian Houses from Warlord Games, PolyHero Dice Warrior Set on Kickstarter, The Prototype 15mm SuperBlue Adder Vehicle from The Ion Age, Plastic 20th Century Brick Battlezones terrain pre-order from Mantic, Gamboni Board Game Relaunch Coming Sunday, Karnivore Koala – German Version Unlocked, Immortal Launches on Kickstarter Next Week, Apocalypse post-apocalyptic RPG System up on Indiegogo, SHM76 Grav Van released at, and Sisters of Serens Unlocks Free Minis in Indiegogo Campaign.

New Sarissa Precision Dutch/Belgian Houses from Warlord Games

Our latest Bolt Action supplement, Germany Strikes!, is available on pre-order now. Chronicling Germany’s Blitzkrieg invasion of Western Europe, we have some brilliantly authentic town houses from Sarissa Precision. This selection of 2 and 3-storey houses are just the thing for battles set in Belgium, the Low Countries and northern France.

These buildings also serve well for Napoleonic era games.

Each kit is crafted from 3mm thick Laser cut MDF with Laser etched detail, with removable roof and removable interior floor/walls.

PolyHero Dice Warrior Set on Kickstarter

PolyHero Dice

PolyHero Dice are the result of a creative collaboration between brothers Dann and Greg May. We’ve worked together in the visual arts for more than 20 years, as graphic designers, artists and 3D animators. We’ve also played Dungeons and Dragons (and other RPGs) together from an early age, starting with the red boxed Basic Set (oh, and even before that a game Dann made up and tried to make Greg play).

This project is a labour of love for us; to create imaginative, 3D-sculpted custom dice for our favourite hobby, and for the pure joy of holding and rolling them. We are very motivated to run this Kickstarter well and get the product into more hot little hands than our own.

We need your help to produce the Warrior Set in two colours!

The Prototype 15mm SuperBlue Adder Vehicle from The Ion Age


We do not often show off early prototypes but in this case I wanted to make an exception. With Patrol Angis coming out in just over a week I wanted to fill you in on where we are going later this year. A massively up armoured Adder variant featuring replusar (Anti-Gravity) propulsion which sported a heavy laser capable of bringing down much larger targets. The Super Blue is a hunter killer with a lot of bang for the buck as they say. Click through to read and see more. Thanks.

Plastic 20th Century Brick Battlezones terrain pre-order from Mantic

Recently we had the opportunity to look at a system for modern combat games, with a view that they could work in near-future, apocalyptic or historical games. And so 20th Century Brick became a thing – and just look at these shots!

What you need to know about the 20th Century Brick scenery:

– It’s supplied in red coloured plastic. You don’t even need to paint it!

– It clips together, and comes apart again.

– It’s affordable.

The 20th Century Brick scenery is now available to pre-order from your local retailer and the Mantic Games Webstore. These first sets are big on value and include lots of pieces to cover your gaming tables in great quality plastic scenery. Look out for smaller, individual kits coming soon.

We have exceptionally limited stock for this month, so pre-order on the website quickly to guarantee your set for this month.

Gamboni Board Game Relaunch Coming Sunday


GAMBONI is an interactive strategy board game for 3 to 5 players set in 1980’s New York City.

Players take turns to collect money, move around the board and score points on Money, Power and Respect. To win you must choose the right strategy, take risks, be aggressive, be patient, trade, co-operate, negotiate, eliminate, divide and conquer, bluff, intimidate and have some luck.

Karnivore Koala – German Version Unlocked

Karnivore Koala

We have just reached a major stretch goal in the Karnivore Koala campaign and unlocked the German version at 15K! The game is now funded by 300% and there are another 3 weeks ahead of us in which we can add some more great stretch goals if you help us to unlock them! Would be great if you can take a look at the project and be part of this journey!

Immortal Launches on Kickstarter Next Week


Immortal, a strategy board game of warring mythologies, will be launching its Kickstarter campaign on Tuesday, May 26th. This is the second game by designer David Luis Sanhueza, published by Game-O-Gami, following the hit family card game Goblins Drool, Fairies Rule!

In Immortal, 2 to 4 players summon armies of legendary gods, heroes, and monsters from four different mythological factions, unleashing them upon each other in an epic war for supremacy. The goal of the game is to gain the most control over modular battlefields, by capturing opponents’ forces and turning their godly powers against them.

Apocalypse post-apocalyptic RPG System up on Indiegogo


Apocalypse is played in the post-apocalyptic world following the events described above, and as such, is a challenging, exciting, and potentially lethal system. Whether you’re dealing with shotgun-toting raiders in trucks or you’re going toe to toe with a demon behemoth, every choice has the potential to bring dire consequences or great rewards.

With a new approach to weapon, armor, and character design mechanics comes a laundry list of potential combinations of randomized mutations, class-based powers, and unique abilities. Even the landscape can prove dangerous, as radiation effects and environmental shifts due to the apocalypse can surprise even the most careful adventurers.

Apocalypse mechanics use a logical, real-world approach to armor functionality (lessening and abating damage received rather than simply making a character harder to hit), weaponry (do you want the shotgun, or the missile launcher?), vehicles, basic equipment, and more.
