Happy Wednesday, everyone! I hope the week has been treating you well. I’ve… actually been sick this week. Don’t worry, I’ve made sure to disinfect every post just before it goes up, so you shouldn’t catch anything.

Anyway, we’ve collected the various bite-sized stories that we’ve come across recently and present them to you now.

In this batch we have: Outer Limit Games announces Kickstarter launch date for TAU CETI: Planetary Crisis, LaserCutCard Updates and re-Releases New Art Deco Ruins Terrain, MidKnight Heroes Kcikstarter Reboot Coming Soon, Acheson Creations Releases Orc House, Mounted Heroes Kickstarter Launches, New Pwork Wargames Battle Mats Available, Play Blackwater Gulch at Origins, Final Days of Ramshackle Robots Kickstarter, New Brigade Models – 15mm Armoured Infantry, Sally 4th Releases Pub Interior Terrain Set, and New Furniture and Table Detail kits from Burn In Designs.

Outer Limit Games announces Kickstarter launch date for TAU CETI: Planetary Crisis

Tau Ceti

Outer Limit Games, a father and son team, announces the Kickstarter launch date of their sci-fi miniatures game, TAU CETI: Planetary Crisis on June 17th.

Tau Ceti is a 1-5 player game (YES, it comes with a Solo Variant!) where you are placed in control of your alien’s civilization, and will compete to maintain and expand your power and influence within a newly formed alliance, all while dealing with increasing planetary and economic disruptions.

During each round you are free to harness your alien abilities and comparative advantages (skill sets) to produce a variety of resources, buy/sell commodities in a fluctuating market, transport goods and complete missions for money, upgrade your star ship’s systems, acquire exotic tech, explore uncharted sectors for knowledge, expand your civilization’s economic and culture influence, engage in interstellar battle to overtake or defend your influence, hire a variety of specialists, and manipulate the alliance to your advantage!

The game takes 1 1/2 to 3 hours depending on the number of players, and will be priced at $59, with free shipping offered to certain countries.

LaserCutCard Updates and re-Releases New Art Deco Ruins Terrain

LaserCutCard have re-released the art deco ruins. These models have had the MDF replaced with card, which has made them lighter (saves on shipping) and cheaper by about $7 per model.

They are all part of the same building and so can be used individually or as one large 12” square ruined structure.

There is a single level ruin, two double-story ruins and a three level ruin.

They are fantastic for 28mm games where skulls are not a prerequisite (or even 28mm games where you are just tired of skulls) πŸ˜€

MidKnight Heroes Kcikstarter Reboot Coming Soon

MidKnight Heroes

Hello Heroes,

I wanted to personally thank you for backing this project and putting your support behind me; and for your belief in MidKnight Heroes. After fully examining our options, we want to do what is best for you and provide you with a better value. As such, we will be canceling this KickStarter project as of May 18th. Now for the good news! We will be starting a second KickStarter campaign on June 2nd that will run through July 1st.

Although we did a ton of work and a lot research prior to setting up this first Kickstarter, there was still a lot that we learned from this KickStarter. Your comments and response has taught us many lessons that have helped us refine what we are offering and expand the value for you, our customers.

Come on in and sit down for a demo of Blackwater Gulch, run by the 40kOrigins game club, at Origins Game Fair, in Columbus, Oh. Origins runs June 3 – 7th, and we have demos schedules every day of the convention.

I believe that our schedule is at 10 am and 2pm daily, except for the first (only afternoon) and last day (morning only).

All figures, and dice will be provided. You can get tickets at Origins for these events, and we also will honor walk up participants with generic tickets, and this event also falls under the HOT ribbon if you have one of those.

Official Gangs and Homebrew as well will be featured.

Generally, each session will consist of 2 games, one a general “Last gang standing” to learn the rules, and a second game if there is time, with an objective and goals.
