Pedion Launches Modular Battlefield Kickstarter

Modular Battlefields

Can you imagine a terrain system which could allow you recreate almost any kind of battlefield on your home’s tabletop? Not printed, but realistic, beautiful looking battlefields that could be mistaken for dioramas? That you could interchange features to suit any battle scenario? But when you are done, you could easily fit them into a cupboard or locker? Which you could easily transfer to your gaming club for the pleasure of your mates, since your 4’x4’ table would weigh only 7 pounds and fit into a 1’x1’x1.5’ box? Because all these and more, can be done with Pedion.

Rolljordan Updates Icelanders Fantasy Sports Team Indiegogo Campaign

80 Euro

Issue 2 introduces all new heroes and the terrifying subterranean “Digger” mutation.

The infected still roam every board and are as deadly as ever, only now they can also be used as a weapon against the other player!

1pFB Beginner’s Guide Released

guide

Today we are releasing a new Beginner’s Guide, this time for 1pFB!

The Beginner’s Guide is the perfect entry point for wargaming newbies. It takes you through everything you need to know about how to play a wargame in general, and then it explains how to play 1pFB in full detail. This guide is very similar to the one we already released 1p40k, and its the closest thing we have to a “traditional” rulebook.

As always veterans can easily skip this, whilst newcomers should definitely give it a look. We hope you enjoy it, happy wargaming!
