Well, we’re mostly caught-up here after the Expo last weekend. Still a few things to deal with, but my inbox was actually down to a manageable level after going through it yesterday. Of course, it’s now filled back up again, but waddyagonnado?
Another thing that’s full is the box with the bite-sized stories we’ve collected over the past couple days.
Good thing it’s time for our regular Snippets post.
In this batch we have: New Releases from Scotia Grendel, Mounted Heroes 3D Store Opening This Fall, Some More Installments of “The Fiver” with The Meeple Mechanic, Spirit of Slaughterloo scenario for Flintloque, Manorhouse Workshop Update #38 – Modular Underground Project – New Pledge and new Early Bird, Iron Battlefield: corridors, buildings and catwalks for Space Hulk & Infinity on Indiegogo, Siren Miniatures posts Concept art for incoming July releases, Japanese-themed Robin Hood figures on Indiegogo, New Colossal Zeppelin from Titan-Forge, New Dungeon Saga Tiles Previews, New Dungeon Saga Tiles Previews, Heroic Maps – Outstation H9-7M, Infinity Plus One Master of Coin Kickstarter Happening Now, Soda Pop Miniatures Previews Beach Party Marie-Claude, Tabletop-Art Previews new Terrain, Historical, Fantasy and Sci-fi Offers at 15mm.co.uk, New Pulp Alley figures by Statuesque, and Demigods Evolution unlocks Angel of Death.
A new month appears, and like always we’ve prepared a great collection of new releases. Let’s move on to our new releases.
Generic Fantasy Range
As in previous months, let’s start with the personality packs. This time we’ve four packs! Probably the most iconic person in any self-respecting adventure group is the Wizard. GFR0079 – Godefridus the Wizard at your service. Another obligatory member of any group is the dwarf with axe, GFR0088 – Degenhard the Axe is ready for duty. The next two packs represent nobles which most adventurers will meet on their road to glory. GFR0081 – Vitoldus The King of Elves, and GFR0089 – Sister Leocadia. The last pack GFR0101 – The Minions of The Unforgiven will be a exciting enemy for our adventurers.
In this month we bring a new terrain piece to our 1/300 scale range, TTR012 – Stone farm.
On our workbench (aka “Design Studio”)
As I mention in previous newsletter, Jon is working on Dworks, for those who missed first WIP on our forum or FB.
That’s all for this month, more nice stuff coming soon!
Mounted Heroes Kickstarter has reached its end and, unfortunately, the project is not funded. Along this 30 days we have received many support and nice words for our project, we have learned from our mistakes and we have also realized some things we could and should improve. That, and the certainty that 3D print has still many possibilities, has been to us an important encouragement to believe in our project.
This said, we have really good news for Mounted Heroes that we want to share with you. Thanks to Kickstarter and all the online media that has collaborated and helped us, we have reached many people and got support from a different way, so we want to announce that Imagine 3D Miniatures online store will be opening on fall 2015.
We will keep you updated while we work on the online store and new models for it.
Hey, everyone! My name is Khairul Hamdan (yes, I know, hard to pronounce). I am an Aussie board game designer and founder of Garage Games Australia. When I am not dodging fire tornadoes and drop bears, most of my time is spent designing, gaming and often dancing… badly.
Howdy! I’m JT Smith, I’m a game designer from Madison, Wisconsin. Most people know me as one of the owners of The Game Crafter (www.thegamecrafter.com). I love playing people’s prototypes almost as much as I like designing new games. For that reason I attend 2-4 Protospiel events per year, and also meet up with other local game designers as often as I can to try out their fresh new designs.
I’ve been designing games for over 20 years but mostly make games for me and my friends. I have only tried to publish games a few times.
My name is Matt Loomis and I love to design tabletop games. You may have heard me on a podcast, met me at a gaming convention or maybe even supported a Kickstarter I was a part of (Thanks!) But just in case you’ve never heard of me, I currently reside in northern Illinois with my wife and son. I work as a Business Analyst for my day job, which may sound a little boring unless you really love working with data (which I do)!
Hey, everyone. My name is Larry Lembcke and I represent Spellforge Games. I am based out of Louisville, Kentucky, and I do a bunch of stuff My day job is internet marketing (you may have seen an article I wrote recently about Kickstarter and Google Analytics.) Spellforge Games is my side project (which lately has taken more time than my full-time job!) Oddly enough, I also do bodybuilding/fitness consultation on the side as well, which is kind of a shock to gamer folks when they meet me.
Hi! I’m Kim Brebach, a game lover and now designer from Sydney Australia. I’m into all sorts of games now that I have kids growing up. In former lives I have swung a sword, a 4 stringed axe, been an environmental activist, a bit of a techie, an English teacher, and am currently a digital project manager with a strong interest in user experience and digital campaigning.

Offers and free end on 29th June 2015. Inspired by the release of the Slaughterloo Monument sculptor and all round top guy Christian Cello has penned a short tale and Flintloque scenario called ‘The Spirit of Slaughterloo. It concerns former combatants in the Mordredian Wars being brought once more into the fray long after the wars have officially ended for one last crack at the Ferach Elves. Click through for all this and a download link for the PDF. Thanks.
50x 110$ EARLY BIRD “2 OBLIVION STARTER SET ”
20x 160$ EARLY BIRD “3 OBLIVION STARTER SET ”
But there is more goodness on the horizon:
Take a look at what you can build with the pledge level “2 OBLIVION STARTER SETS”
To clear the air on the value of the future freebies we are also going to add the “1 box + stretch goals” pledge level. 59$: 1 OBLIVION STARTER SET (INCLUDING STRETCH GOALS)
However, the freebies planned for this Kickstarter are going to be so many that you better grab one of the 3 starter sets EARLY BIRDS. 😉
Stay tuned for the upcoming updates. Over the next days we will show what you can build with this amazing set, will post more photos on the actual scale of the dungeons tiles and give you some suggestions on how to adapt this set to existing dungeon-based boardgames.
Iron Battlefield is a new Sci-fi scenery range for 28mm wargames, designed to create heavy and industrial style structures over the battle board, through a highly configurable system for inner and outer game.
This range has been designed to make a realistic industrial environment: dark and metallic colours on main areas, like walls, floors, catwalks, grids… combining with high colourful and special items than provides sophistication to the group, like vivid colour plates, or crystal fences and tiles.
In sum, a metallic and heavy landscape, to recreate an industrial complex, big space hulks, and outer colonial facilities.
Next month we are going to create new dwarf with really big axe and “something”. Something (we have special name for it – guess what) will be really big.
More pictures and information can be found on SirenMiniatures’ Facebook page or website.
We are looking to expand the range with yet more Characters and Personalities and Troops, the First 8 Characters have been commissioned and paid for. Your Contribution will help the range grow and expand.
Titan-Forge expands their line of steam-powered dwarfs, Metal Beards with flying-fortress: Colossal Zeppelin.
Welcome to a week of insider info and reveals for Dungeon Saga – it is nearly time to gather your party 😉
Over the course of the next few days we will have a look at all aspects of the upcoming ‘Dungeon Saga’ game. This week in particular we’ll have an in-depth look at ‘The Adventurers Companion’ and what that is. There are features on some new art, designer’s notes and as many photos of models as we can cram in. We hope it will be interesting to both backers – veterans of every update, and new inductees discovering Dungeon Saga for the first time.
When your rescue team arrive at H9-7M, only a few days after they detected the distress beacon, there are no signs of the scientists that called the lonely outpost home. However, there are signs of a struggle – blood stains, barricades, and rips in the metal walls that lead into mysterious tunnels.
A printable battlemap compatible with any RPG/Dungeon-Crawl game. Use as a standalone gameboard, or combine with any same-scale tileset.
Master of Coin: Fantasy Tabletop Coins are real metal fantasy currency designed to be used with tabletop board games, role playing games, larping or as props. The coins have a fantasy themed design but real world detail and heft, so upgrade your cardboard tokens! There are five unique designs.

MDA22P Darkling Mercenaries (10)
In the distant future of mankind a group of fanatical and evil scientists broke sacred laws by creating human-animal hybrids. These scientists and their loyal followers were forced to flee from Earth aboard several starships. They were hardy peoples coming from Skandanavia so they choose a winter world as their new home. Their numbers were few and compared to the standing armies of the empires and federations around them they were weak. To ensure their survival the mythos of the Norsemen was incorporated into their now accelerated gene beast research. This new force allowed the now Star Viking peoples to mount raids vital to their development and in time they grew strong and corrupt. Using the few human soldiers they have well most raids are carried out by the gene ripped creatures from massive factories on their world. Among them are Battle Boars of legend, Stocky Dwarves of mythos and vile goblinoids of lore. Lastly the huge Battle Giants pieced together for combat. The Star Vikings are to be feared…to some they are hailed as Devils.
A whole range of 15mm science fiction miniatures and we have taken 10% off all the packs including the whole set, the mega set and the normal packs of Space Orcs, Space Dwarfs, Space Warriors, Space Bestial Men and Space Giants until months end.
