Grindhouse Games are selling their JUNK miniature range to a third party.

From their website:

JUNK was the bridge too far. I’ve realized I cannot simultaneously support Incursion much less SoTR while developing a whole new world and game system while ALSO being a full time architect, father, and husband :-). I am in the process of finalizing an acquisition by another game company who will take it from here. A company with significantly greater resources than Grindhouse. It would be inappropriate for me to say who, when, or how at this point. That entity will do so in its own good time, I’m sure. Let me reassure you that it is in good hands.

The fledgeling web page and store site has been taken down. I will leave these forums up until such time as the new owners instruct me to do otherwise.

That’s all I can say at the moment.

Back to working on the Incursion expansion. Can’t wait to show you guys some stuff. It’s all pretty neat…

    That’s too bad. It looks like a really interesting range of models, and I was looking forward to a game. Hopefully whoever picks it up will do a good job, but these sorts of transitions don’t always bode well…

      I don’t think there is any reason to be negative about the news

      • Grim6

        I hope you are right, but I’ve watched several lines of of games I’ve enjoyed disappear, die of neglect or just never fully materialize, so I reserve my right to skepticism. πŸ˜‰

        That said, I hope you are right, because I would love to see a full line / game!

  • Hope it was bought by someone cool!

  • KampfgruppeCottrell

    Best wishes to both parties.

    Time be tough for most,

    Probably a good choice for the long run, but I can imagine not an easy decision.

    I support this move, especially if it is taxing other work and personal life. I know what it means to bite off more than you can chew. Given the extraordinarily high standard Grindhouse set with Incursion, I’d rather see fewer releases of the highest quality than multiple lines that strain the focus of the team.

    I also have to admit the JUNK line didn’t grab my imagination the way Incursion has, and so, like an older sibling who suspiciously eyes the new baby in the house, I’m personally glad Jim and crew will be more focused on Incursion’s expansion for a while.

    Best of luck to the new owners, as well. Given its designers, I suspect there is a LOT more to JUNK than I have seen, and I won’t write it off just yet.
