Beyond the Gates of Antares: Errata and FAQs posted


The launch of Beyond the Gates of Antares has been a great success, and battle has been joined across the Antarean universe. Thanks to your very welcome feedback Rick Priestley has produced an errata document that covers a few mistakes that slipped through the net.

Iron Cross Miniatures Launches First Minis


Dear community,

this week we present to you the first fireteam. Under covering fire by friendlies they advance into cover, trying to outmaneuver the enemy.

The MG42-gunner is just about to hit the deck, getting ready to fire. While he is followed by his loader, the rest of the group storms toward an enemy position. Hand grenades are thrown to suppress the defenders.

This set will cost 9,90€ but there will also be bundles so you can save some money!

The week after we will show you the next fireteam and discuss our ideas behind the figure design.

New Tau Units Added To One Page 40k and One Page Kill Team


Hey there,

Today we are releasing another important update for our 40k based games, introducing the newest Tau units and re-working some of their core features. Here is the list of changes:

1p40k/KT – Relentless can target different units; Re-worked Deep Strike; Re-worked Beacon; Re-worked Scout
1pKT – All non-melee weapons can split attacks now; Models from groups that recover may now move at half speed; Pushing into obstacles/models re-worked into advanced rules
Tau – Added new Fire Warrior and Crisis Suit options; Added XV95 Ghostkeel; Added KV128 Stormsurge
Tyranids – Tyranid Prime no longer counts as a Monster

Note that some of these changes will also be ported over to 1pFB/FS in the near future, when a major patch for those games is coming out. 😉

Bombshell Games Announces Techno Bowl



Forget about expensive game systems, emulators, disconnected online games, and high-priced yearly roster updates. TECHNO BOWL takes everything you love about arcade and video game football classics like Tecmo Bowl, NFL Blitz, and Madden and puts it all on the tabletop.

And as if that isn’t cool enough, it also gives you a feature that gamers have long asked for but never gotten… until now! What is it you ask? As a coach in TECHNO BOWL, you will design your own formations and plays. That’s right. Let me say it again. You get to design your own formations and plays.

And I’m not talking about choosing several formation cards, lining up elements on a chart, or utilizing some other abstraction. This is putting the power to effortlessly create real football formations and plays into your hands.

Siege of Augusta Website is back Up and Running


Welcome to the new Siege of Augusta homepage! First, I’d like to thank everyone for their patience. With the untimely passing of our dear friend Bryant McLaughlin earlier this year, we lost the ability to log in to the old site. We figured, since we have to make a new website, maybe we may as well give it a fresh coat of paint. The goal of the new design is the keep the great traditional black and gold color scheme (insert the groans of our web designer here; bah! It looks great!), while making the design itself into something more modern and easy to use.

Now, this being a brand-new site, we could use your help. If you think something is missing, or you think we can improve, please don’t hesitate to email us at [email protected] and let us know. We are especially keen on images we can use, and missing event/tournament listings.

The main purpose of the website is to inform you about all things Siege-related; but the second, no-less-important purpose, is to let you know that the Siege is on, we’re excited, and we hope you’re ready to push some lead.

Final Days For The Mindjammer RPG Kickstarter


Thanks to your backing we’ve funded almost £22000 of awesome expansions to our far future transhuman science-fiction setting, the Mindjammer RPG, and the Kickstarter itself is now fantastic value, with £20 (appx $30) getting you no less than *ten* separate products (two adventures, a sourcebook, two fiction books, a player’s guide, a companion, an introductory adventure, a digipack, and a Traveller RPG version) and £45 (appx $67.50) getting you all that *plus* print copies of the core book and two adventures. There are other pledges, too, and we’ve already unlocked a print version of the player’s guide and are about to unlock even more.

Please stop by and check it out if you haven’t already, and if you like what you see please pledge and help fund this massive expansion of the Mindjammer setting.

Westfalia’s Halfmen Kickstarter is live


This project began with me wanting a few miniatures for a fantasy skirmish warband; but it quickly escalated into what you now see here, a full army of Halflings. Ones that have scars and know how to ransack a city! I’ve always liked Fantasy that is influenced by history, so we have included true-to-form knightly armor and weaponry along with many different unit types that would be at home on the battlefields of High Medieval Europe. There are also some more fantastical miniatures such as the mage or the paymaster, to keep a balance between history and fantasy. Whatever you decide to use them for, these Halfmen are tough little butchers, used to winning their battles and grooming the realm’s most stubborn goats.

Warchimera Releases Partisans for Polish Home Army


We’ve just made new models for Polish Home Army.

Formed in February 1942 from the Armed Resistance and disbanded in January 1945, the Home Army was the armed wing of Polish Underground State.
Roughly 400,000 strong it focused on many sabotage actions in the occupied territory of Poland. Like destroying train transports to the Eastern Front or eliminating German high rank commanders. The most known operation was the Warsaw Uprising in 1944.

You may use these models as Polish Partisans. The set contains 8 models (4 with SMG and 4 with rifles) and 10 heads. Miniatures are made of fine resin.
