Hello there, Wednesday. How are you? I see you’ve brought the Guns ‘N’ Roses weather back with you. And while I know I’m in the minority here in Atlanta when I say, “woo! Rain!” I don’t care. I enjoy it. So there.

Along with the rain, Wednesday brings us our Midweek Snippets post, where we bring you some bite-sized stories that we’ve found over the past couple days.

In this batch we have: Tor Gaming Announces The C’thu Kickstarter, We’re All Mad Here NPC Contest from Wizard of the Coast, Fistful of Lead: Reloaded fully backed on Kickstarter, Tin Man 35% Off Sale Ends Sunday Night, Shieldwolf Miniatures releases new Goblins, New Sci Fi Dwarves from Scibor, Oddzial Osmy’s 3mm and 15mm October Releases Arrive at PicoArmor, The Seraphis Institute – The Third Army Deal From Nexus Miniatures, Vasseth Strike Tank and Reaction Force released by Loud Ninja Games, New Shaleground 30mm and 40mm RL Deals From Tabletop-Art, Crusaders of the Faith Revealed for Shattered Earth’s Children of the One True God Faction, Medieval Mayhem Coming This December, New Cavalry Models From Brigade Models, and Just Four Days left on the Interface Zero kickstarter for Fate.

Tor Gaming Announces The C’thu Kickstarter


All eyes were upon the stranger as he wandered wearily into the camp. He walked with an awkward hobble, like an old beggar; yet he was cloaked in a fine robe of expensive silk. Colonel Phillyps wandered if he was some sort of privileged leper, an expendable embarrassment sent out to do the dirty work for some spineless toff. His blackened hood shielded his face completely from the inquisitive eyes of Phillyps, the seasoned Colonel thought it all the better; judging by the repugnant odour emanating from the stranger he was certain the features hidden beneath would be positively grotesque.

Medieval Mayhem Coming This December

Med May

“ONCE UPON A TIME THERE WAS A KINGDOM RULED BY A WISE AND POWERFUL KING… well actually it was run by a large uncaring corporation, filled with children celebrating birthdays, adults just trying not to go crazy and staffed by slackers, stoners and students!

Medieval Mayhem funfair and theme park to give it is full name was regarded by its’ employees as one of the worst place in the world to work, if they weren’t picking up horse doody or nursing bruises from the rebated weapons, they were selling soft drinks and bad food to the willing audience BUT that was before the Zombie Apocalypse!!!”

Studio Miniatures and Radio Dishdash Publishing have teamed up to bring the Medieval Mayhem funfair and theme park to your gaming table.

Medieval Mayhem is the first supplement to Skirmish Outbreak, and adds a different dimension to the core rules. Inside the book you will find brave knights, humble peasants, damsels in distress and of course, hordes of the relentless undead! So while the knights might be fake, at least their weapons are sharp-ish, and their armour offers some form of protection!

The PDF of Medieval Mayhem will be offered FREE to all of those who pledged at the Squire level or above in the Kickstarter and will be available to everyone before Christmas, in both PDF and softback book formats.

New Cavalry Models From Brigade Models

Slightly delayed by other activity around Brigade Towers, we have some new releases in the form of some 15mm SF mounted infantry figures.

There are three types of rider and two mounts. We have low-tech humans in the form of South African infantry in bush hats and fully armoured PacFed troopers as well, both mounted in horses. We also have alien Yenpalo figures mounted on some rather ferocious looking Raptor-like lizards, all sculpted by Martin Baker. It’s possible to select the alternative mount for each figure, so you can buy either human figure type with lizards or the Yenpalo with horses should you wish.

SF15-665 – SAC Mounted Infantry (x2) – £3.00
SF15-755 – PacFed Mounted Infantry (x2) – £3.00
SF15-1105 – Yenpalo on Lizards (x2) – £3.00
