Seeing as how Monday I was in a car for about 13-14 hours, I didn’t get a chance to do the regular Terrain Corner piece. So, much as I did Friday, with the combined Snippets/Terrain Corner post, I’m giving you another of those today. Gotta catch back up from Gen Con.

Anyway, today we have: Live Q&A For Tablescapes Dungeons Today, Blood Moon expansion is out for Talisman: Digital Edition, Holistic Design Inc. and Canivete Films Announce Portuguese Fading Suns Translation, Heroic Maps release Modular Kit: Forest Glades, Khurasan releases multiple pose crabmen set, New Statuesque Fine and Pulp Scale Female Heads 2 on sale, Armorcast Announces: All Hail the Mesmofrog, RPG Combat Maps: Pwork Wargames grid gaming mats now available, Hitech Miniatures Releases Traveler Priest Dante, Brassed Off – etched brass modelling details On Indiegogo, New Model 30 Billboard From Mechanical Warhorse, Sports Inspired Card Deck Up On Kickstarter, Khurasan releases The Great Swamp Lizard, and Final Days for Unit RPG Up On Kickstarter.

Live Q&A For Tablescapes Dungeons Today

SWM

Live Q&A on Twitch!

We will be broadcasting a live Q&A, and build session on Wednesday 10-August beginning at 1 PM Pacific time (GMT-7). I will be here with one of the Secret Weapon crew doing set-by-set builds, so that you can see the tiles in action as we build out one set at a time, and answering your questions.

If there is something you know you’d like to see in the video, please leave a comment and let us know. I will make sure those components are ready, and that we have a list of questions as we start.

You will be able to catch a recording of the broadcast on YouTube if you miss it live — and we’ll add a link to that in another update.

Blood Moon expansion is out for Talisman: Digital Edition

Nomad Games is proud to announce the latest expansion The Blood Moon for the popular quest game Talisman: Digital Edition, available now on Steam and Android.

Players will get a scare as The Blood Moon expansion takes the game into a twisted horror theme. If you love classic horror then you will brave the night as creatures come out and hunt in the shadows.

Three new characters will be available for players. However, there is also the deadly Werewolf. This creature will chase players around the board and can be used against each other. The Werewolf adds a fantastic element to the core Talisman ideals which make the game so unique.

This pack comes with an updated 3 new alternate endings for the game, including Lightbearers, the first real co-operative challenge for you and your friends!

Holistic Design Inc. and Canivete Films Announce Portuguese Fading Suns Translation

Holistic Design

Holistic Design Inc. and Canivete Films announce a licensing agreement for a Fading Suns roleplaying game Portuguese translation. After many years, and much growing support for the system, the gaming community in Brazil can look forward to an opportunity to travel amongst the stars to worlds of wonder and intrigue in the Fading Suns universe.

“We are very happy to have the talented team at Canivete Films translating and publishing Fading Suns in Brazil,” said Holistic Design President Chris Wiese. “There are so many new titles coming out for Fading Suns and the related Noble Armada miniature game system worldwide this year. All of these elements will enhance the opportunity for a Portuguese translation of Fading Suns.”

Very pleased to report that, due to popular demand, we have expanded our range of Sponks, the crabmen who can be used as either troll sized beasts in 15mm or as slightly shorter than humans in 28mm. Apparently people use them a lot in units in 28mm, so we now sell them in three different poses, and the claws are posed differently as well. Available now, under the “Sepulveda” range.

RPG Combat Maps: Pwork Wargames grid gaming mats now available

Battle Grid

RPG Combat Maps are PVC-made rollable game mats, ideal for roleplaying games, in size 36×36” – 3×3′, representing a terrain location divided into 36 squares of 1×1” (2,5×2,5cm) for each side, suitable to set, sketch and revive on a physical game surface your favourite roleplaying games.
RPG Combat Maps offer you the possibility of setting your adventures in RPGs with precision and attention to details. The different terrain locations you can choose will allow you to play in a clearing inside a forest, among a burning desert under the rays of the sun, on a desolate and barren plain covered with snow and ice or inside an underground dungeon: on RPG Combat Maps you can create all of these locations and, once finished to play, delete everything with a sponge, literally!

Khurasan releases The Great Swamp Lizard

great-swamp-lizard

We are very pleased to release our latest 15mm fantasy model — the Great Swamp Lizard. This towering beast can eat his way straight through entire enemy armies … or can even attempt to gobble up the romantic interest of huge island-bound apes (but that’s a risky proposition, even for him). It’s a salute to the old-style portrayal of a great carnivorous dinosaur — to many people, this is still the preferred portrayal of T. rex.

The kit is a mixture of resin and pewter, and parts are provided so that he can have his mouth open or closed. (I prefer the mouth closed myself and even considered having him sculpted scratching his head.) It’s meant to be really huge in 15mm, so it’s large enough to be quite a threat in 28mm scale as well.

It’s available now, in our popular Salamen fantasy range.
