The Thin Blue Line: Detroit Savage Worlds Module Coming to Kickstarter Soon

Thin Blue Line

Calamity brews in Detroit. Paranormal activity is on the rise. An angry spirit, a dangerous creature, or a pack of desperate cultists hides under every sewer cover and within every abandoned building. Corktown has a secret, though. Its crew of supposed washouts are either psychics or have encountered the paranormal. The officers of Corktown Precinct stand between the city and paranormal onslaught. These damaged, over-worked, and under-paid officers must keep paranormal activity in Detroit under wraps and out of sight. No mean feat in a city as old, large, and haunted as Detroit. Corktown officers face constant threats from mundane crime, paranormal forces, as well as their inner demons and growing madness.

Heroic Maps New Wardenhale Gambling Den Map

Gambling Den

From the outside, the building seems no different to countless others in the city of Wardenhale. In fact, if you were to enter the building you would simply find the offices of Dalor and Son: Import & Export Services and be asked to be on your way.

However, if you knew the right people, you’d be shown through the back door and into the real business here – gambling. Patrons wager their livelihoods on the throw of a dice or the turn of a card, and if you are in the mood you can venture downstairs and bet on one of the illegal fights that takes place in the arene down there.

Boxing fights, knife fights, bear baiting – it all happens in the Wardenhale Gambling Den

Sea Dog Game Studios releases Nassau Sloop kit for Sailpower 2.0

New 20th Century Brick Terrain from Battlezones


There are new sets in the Battlezones range of 20th Century Brick-themed terrain.

The Battlezones Tile System means that every kit is part of hard plastic and, using an innovative connector system, fully modular.

Three new kits have been added to the range, offering different combinations of ruined and intact tiles to build a convenience store, apartment block or a ruined village. Since the system is modular, you can build just about anything else you can think of too.

These smaller sets are designed to be lighter on the wallet than the big-city kits, and will offer cover and scenery from a variety of genres of games. Mantic have used World War II an Post-Apocalytic as examples.

The new 20th Century Brick battlezones scenery hits retailer shelves at the end of this month.

New 32mm bases available from Tabletop-Art

Now Available – 32mm Bases for the sets: Ancestral Ruins, Ancient Machinery, and Bonefield.

Instant Dungeon is a light, magnet-powered modular setting that can be used in your RPG, miniature battles and dungeoncrawl boardgames.

Mixing the best materials together (marble resin with calcium carbonate) and adding neodymium magnets, we get the best possible product for your boardgames and role-playing experiences..

We have managed to build a dungeon scenery boxed set, light and easy to transport,(for your games away from home).

We have made a box for our previous project. Although it´s a nice box, we are planning to improve it, under certain circumstances (to get funded and maybe unlock some stretchs, i.e.)
