Here we are again. Half-through with the week. With any luck, you’ve had some gaming opportunities. Or at the very least, have some coming up. Looks like I’ve got D&D again this weekend. Should be a good time, though we’ve got a player moving to Ohio soon. So we’re getting in whatever sessions we can before then.

Bedtime Story continues to build on the 12 realms legacy and brings four new realms: Tang Dynasty, Horrorville, Clockwork Shire and Atlantis. Here is some of the Plots We’ve prepared: In Tang Dynasty a god has been born with unlimited power. Players begin their journey from the same realm and they must travel from one land to another but to do that they must destroy the Walls which separate each land. Each Wall has three parts and they can be destroyed by accomplishing different tasks. In each round archers on top of the wall attack and all players lose talents, making the game progressively more difficult! As long as players try to destroy the Walls in a Realm, Invaders take over the rest Active Realms! When you get at the Palace, you must all face the god who born there and then one of you can take that power! On the other other side of the fairy world, Atlantis is sinking and the flood affects all the rest active Realms, Time has stopped in Clockwork Shire by Steam Baron and Vampirella is running loose in Horrorville!
Fan of Flintloque and Slaughterloo will forgive me for celebrating dead bunnies but its ok as these ones are just sleeping I promise! Released now two new packs one of small and one of large 28mm dead Rabbitmen for use in the Burrovian Army. Sculpted by Elton Waters they join the ranks of the Burrovian Army which includes a boxed division. Click through for more and our spring offers (free shipping etc) end on 1st May 2015. Thanks.
Today we have a small update for fantasy, and we are offering a new way for people to play one-page games over the internet!
First off, it seems that between all the recent stuff that has been going on we have missed a few of the new units that have been released with the end times. We have gone through the releases and are now adding 4 new units to 1pFB/FS:
Warriors of Chaos – Added skullreapers and putrid blightknights
Skaven – Added stormfiends
Vampire Counts – Added morghasts
Next up, we now have an official Roll20 campaign which you can use to play with your friends and the OPR team, or to challenge a fellow one-page-fan to a match!
Roll20 is a virtual tabletop which you can use to play tabletop games online through your browser. It doesn’t require you to download or install anything, and it is completely free to use. We use it all the time to test new games or just have some fun, and it is a simple system you can pick up after playing one or two games.
So if you ever wanted to play one-page games online or to just have a chat with the team, then hop into the OPR Playroom. We will try to be available as much as possible, if not for a game then at least for a chat!
Icarus Miniatures have previewed another fantastic piece of concept art for their upcoming sci-fi skirmish wargame, The Icarus Project. This week they’re showing off the mercenary character, Kara Mariasha.
A rising star of the Alliance Military, Kara Mariasha was betrayed by the Alliance and abandoned to die during the second Nexus War. But she survived, escaped, and formed the mercenary group, Anubis, who control most of the weapons trade on the eastern fringes of space.
Greetings! I’m Gaby and I work at Lone Shark Games. I’m originally from a small town in Wisconsin, but now I live in the Seattle metro area. At Lone Shark, I work on all the puzzle projects and almost all of the game projects. A day at my job could be anything from writing cards for games, playtesting a game, writing a puzzle, testing a puzzle, making a prototype of game, doing research for an upcoming project, to dressing up as a character at a convention. All of this is fueled by the power of coffee and pictures or videos of cats on the internet.
Hello! My name is Chad Brown, and I’m the lead developer for the Apocrypha Adventure Card Game (and several other projects with Lone Shark Games). In a former life, I was a computer programmer and software engineer, but these days I work on building and improving games of various types. I also like mountain biking, ultimate frisbee, and playing with my cat. Oh, and I play a few games, also.
Hello, I’m Lone Shark Games president Mike Selinker and… wait, didn’t we just do an interview a couple weeks ago for the Titan Series? Did we? OK, well, I’m still Lone Shark Games president Mike Selinker, and I’ve written a lot of games.
Hi! I’m Paul Peterson. I’ve been a professional game designer for 20 years, and an amateur for many years before that.
I’ve been lucky enough to work on an incredible range of games. I started by working on Magic: the Gathering (and 10 other CCGs) at Wizards of the Coast, and have since designed MMOs, Tabletop RPGs, Hidden Object Games, Match 3 games, and games for kids. Some of my titles you might recognize include Smash Up, Guillotine, Unexploded Cow, Pairs, and now I’m a designer on Apocrypha!

World’s End Publishing is a company with a simple mission; to design fun wargaming rules. It is our view that miniature rulesets can be more than just a collection of stats and charts. They should be evocative of their genre, but simple with just enough rules crunch to satisfy. We are proud to announce that after three years of hard work we are now ready to officially publish our first game: This Is Not a Test, a 28mm post-apocalyptic skirmish wargame.

Now available: “Undead Ground” round lip bases 30mm, 40mm, 50mm und 120mm.
The Sally 4th UK style roads range has been designed to be compatible with our range of photo realistic buildings.
The buildings all come with a 200mm x 300mm base. This base area can be extended to 200mm x 400mm with an optional additional garden or yard area.
Our road sections have been designed to match these base sizes, so you a 200mm is the right size to go in front of a building, a 300mm road section goes along side a building, or 2 x 200mm sections if the buildings base is extended with a garden or additional yard area.
We have provided alleyway sections, which are great for placing between two rows of buildings arranged back to back. These are 50mm deep, so we have designed a 50mm road section to increase the length of roads where alleyways are being used.
All road sections have been designed using Sally 4th’s jigsaw road alignment method. This means that each piece has a jigsaw like tab and socket that joins with adjoining pieces to stop your terrain drifting apart mid-game. These joints are hidden away underneath the pavement sections.
Some of the most popular new models on Saturday were our 6mm Desert Dome buildings, so appropriately enough they are the first to be added to the website. There are five buildings of varying sizes which are all available now. In the photo below you can see a few of our Mercenary 6mm vehicles, which are next on the release list.
B300-401 – Large Domed Building – £2.50
B300-402 – Medium Cylindrical Building – £2.00
B300-403 – Small Cylindrical Building – £1.50
B300-404 – Small Multi-dome Dwelling – £1.00
B300-405 – Small Oval Dwelling – £1.00
We are excited to be bringing you 10 new coin sets for 2015! Like last year, they will be made in the same high quality but most will be THICKER (when appropriate)! We have made many improvements to our processes which will allow for faster production and fewer misprints so hang on to those rare coins if you have them!
New Thicker Coins
Many of our new designs will be 3mm thick which will provide for more heft and a better feel. Sound is also important so if a coin is circle and 30mm in diameter, it will be 2.5mm thick since anything thicker would begin to sound dull.
Our new box measures 145mm x 40mm x 64mm and is made from thick paperboard, laminated with a matte finish, and sturdy EVA foam on the inside. Each box will have a unique barcode, SKU, Description, and pictures of the coins on the bottom for easy fulfillment. Although the box will no longer have a view window, there will be pictures of the type of coins on the bottom so you can keep these for a storage solution. Each set will even have unique artwork for the tops.
This new design not only makes fulfillment and storage a breeze but it also provides better protection for the coins during shipping. No matter how badly the postal system treats your package; your coins will remain safe and sound.
Time for a new release – a gaming mat with urban ruins theme. Available as 4×6, 4×4 or 3×3 in size, manufactured on PVC or cloth, but can be custom tailored to any table size or with any variation of grids or hexes. It was a challenge to find the balance between general rubble and geometry of a city since we wanted it to serve as a universal background for any possible scenery deployment options. Check out more visuals at our gallery and let us know how well we succeeded!
