Anyway, today’s bites include: Lead Adventure Miniatures Release Bruegelburg Knights, Bombshell November Releases Posted, YooAmeGames preview their new card game Madness Skull, New website/store for Imaginative Miniatures, New Statuesque Pulp Alley Pre-Orders, Aegis Studios Releases Character Compendium 1 Under the Hero Kids Compatibility License, Notification of Results for the 2015 Windhammer Prize, Dark Art Studios Launches Forums, Announcing the First Wave of Scenarios for Post Captain, New Windfall Bases Available From Kromlech, Echoes Revealed for Shattered Earth’s Humanist Rebellion, Watchful I Studio proudly announces that it will be opening its webstore, Games Workshop Black Friday Deals Coming Soon, and New Hammer’s Slammer Detachment Packs From Brigade Models.

BRU-79 Knight 2(1)
All of the new releases for November including the items funded on the Counterblast Heavy Support Kickstarter campaign and two new Sidekicks have been added to the brand new web store. All new releases are currently in stock ready to ship out!
Madness Skull is a card game about Gold, Exploding, Transform. You want to steal your friends’s gold, but they won’t make it easy for you to do so. They can bury bombs and make traps. Besides that, Infinite Power portals are waiting for you. Be careful, they suck gold from you. You can make your fellows drink drugs to make them become chicks or giants. Now things are gonna be different. Chicks is your passport to walk away from Big Bang. Giants is the best weapon to defand the portals. It seems you are almost successful. While fate can be changed dramaticly. Your friends may take all what you get.
After a successful year, thanks to all of you, we decided to re-do our website.
Along with our own range of figures we now stock a healthy range of wargames from other parties as well. In the upcoming weeks we will be adding more brands/ranges.
We also added new ways of shipping and payment. All in all we will be a “one stop skirmish shop!”
Statuesque Miniatures and Pulp Alley are pleased to announce the Pre-Order of a new Pulp Alley Miniatures pack – Ramjeet Singh and Bosun, our second set of Sidekicks.
“Stoic and enigmatic, Ramjeet Singh seldom leaves Minerva’s side. Bound by his own strange code of honour, Ramjeet’s steely stare and imposing stance are a clear warning to any who would cross his mistress.
“Bosun is first-mate of the SS Vento. Since her rescue from South-Seas slavers, she has been unshakably loyal to Captain Wolf – risking her own life countless times to save him from native headhunters, customs officers, and jealous lovers alike.”
As a Pre-Order Special Offer, Ramjeet Singh and Bosun are priced at £6 for the pair, saving 20%.
The figures are also available from Pulp Alley in the US for $9.75, saving $2.
The Pulp Alley Phantom Pack cards are based on some of Dave and Mila’s favourite and most popular Phantom Agent reward cards from 2014 and 2015, printed on premium stock to match the high quality Fortune Deck and other cards.
Each pack includes:
2 x Red Herring cards
4 x Reward cards
9 x Fortune cards
As a Pre-Order Special Offer, the Pulp Alley Phantom Pack is priced at £4.75.
Also new this month are the Leaders and Sidekicks combo packs. Phantom Ace and Pulp Girl are joined by their respective Sidekicks Gauge and Mak O’Reilly in the Pulp Heroes and Heroines pack, while Captain Wolf and Minerva team up with Bosun and Ramjeet in Pulp Pirates and Mercenaries.
Pulp Heroes and Heroines and Pulp Pirates and Mercenaries are priced at £13.50, saving £1.50 over purchasing these figures separately.
Any order containing this Pre-Order item will be posted by the 11th of December 2015. The special offer price also runs until the 11th of December.

Guardian: a shield specialist who can protect other members of the party.

Arborell.com is pleased to announce that the 2015 Windhammer Prize for Short Gamebook Fiction has been won by Felicity Banks for her alternate historical adventure, After the Flag Fell. Merit awards have been won by Philip Armstrong for his quirky fantasy adventure, Sabrage, and Richard Penwarden for his fantastical western, Gunsmoke Along the Fey Frontier. Also this year Commendations have been awarded to Tides of Chrome by Steffen Hagen, Droidchangers: Fight or Die by Andy Moonowl and Alchemist’s Apprentice by John Evans. Congratulations to all who have found success.
Sixteen entries were accepted for the 2015 competition, the high quality of those entries a testament to the talent and originality of the authors who took part. It proved again gratifying to see the wide range of genre and subject matter that encompassed this year’s competition. In a list of well written and innovative gamebooks alternate histories and fantastical worlds sat comfortably alongside hard-metal sci-fi and real world adventure. Amongst these entries magic found its place once again and brooding horror lurked at every turn. All things considered a truly excellent range of new gamebooks.
As with last year the 2015 competition proved a remarkably close and hard-fought contest, with many strong contenders for the six awards. All who have taken part this year should be proud of the quality of the entries they submitted. It indeed bodes well for 2016, gamebooks in general, and the continuing success of the Windhammer Prize.
As has been the case in past years all entries have now been placed into the Windhammer Prize gamebook archive and can be accessed from that page along with all other gamebooks submitted to the competition since 2008.
May Glory and Renown follow all who entered.

Massive Awesome have revealed a new unit for their upcoming post-apocalyptic skirmish game Shattered Earth: the Echoes for the Humanist Rebellion faction.
Watchful I Studio proudly announces that it will be opening its webstore to the public at 12pm EST on December 7, 2015. We are very happy with our first range of miniatures representing the Warring States and Qin Dynasty period of Ancient China. This is a unique period in history because of the formation of the Great Wall, the establishment of a unified China, and the infamous Terracotta Warriors. We are presenting a full range of historic soldiers ranging from infantry, cavalry, chariots, and officers but what makes our 28mm miniatures unique is the inclusion of a fantasy range as well. Reanimated Terracotta Warriors, the guardian Fu Dogs, and the vanquished foes of the Dynasty are just a few releases we have designed.
Our webstore will be opening during the fulfillment of our Kickstarter so our Backers will be sent their orders before we send out any other customer orders. This is our way of respecting the pledges that helped bring our product range to life so please be patient in the early stages of our launch.
We look forward to serving you and watching those ancient Chinese armies on the miniature battlefield.
Amazing Offers revealed soon. 22/27/15
