It’s getting busy here in the office, what with the CMON Expo coming up this weekend. Lots of the usually out-of-office staff are coming in. I baked cookies for the occasion. But it’s not just cookies that will sustain us for the show. We’ll also need to fill up on some bite-sized gaming stories.
Today on the platter we have: Carthage Board Game Coming to Kickstarter, Rise of the Shadow Lords Miniatures Up On Kickstarter, Brigade Models Release Spanish Aeronef Fleet, Acheson Creations adds Chimps to Pewter Line, New releases from Terrible Kids Stuff – May 2017, Dragon Egg Inn Coming to Kickstarter, Final Days for Hannibal & Hamilcar on Kickstarter, Short Order Hero Coming To Kickstarter, New Orc Jet Fighter Pilot from Kromlech, Final Week For The Drowned Earth on Kickstarter, New Terminous Bases Available From Micro Art Studio, 12 Realms: Dungeonland Coming To Kickstarter, New Chaos Legionary Small Banners Available From Kromlech, and Final Week for Significant 7 Dwarves On Kickstarter.
SAS Creative today announced that Carthage will be launching a Kickstarter campaign on May 17, 2017. Carthage is a deckbuilding board game, in which players move around a hex-based arena and face off in gladiatorial warfare to earn crowd favor, gain armor, and battle to the death. Luke Seinen, the designer of Carthage states, “The board game community really needs a good Gladiator game. A game that makes you feel the fear, risk, and adrenaline of being in a gladiatorial contest. Carthage answers that call!”
Featuring a beautiful Graphic Novel art style, this game uses blended mechanics of deckbuilding, hand management, and ruthless “take-that” combat. Also included, is a unique modular ruleset which allows players to play game matchmaker, altering the game complexity, playtime, and strategic depth.
Luke Seinen and his wife run SAS Creative, an indie graphic design company in Edmonton, Canada. Through his company, he had the rare opportunity to not only conceive and develop his game, but to also personally handle all of the design and graphics. “I love that from start to finish, I was able to have a directive hand in all elements of the game,” said Luke Seinen.
Rise of the Shadow Lords Miniatures Up On Kickstarter (Some NSFW minis through link)
Each model will be cast in gray resin at the highest quality and be shipped as a model kit with some assembly required. They will be boxed with supportive foam ensuring that they are delivered in the best possible condition. As you can see each figure is highly detailed and stands roughly 6 inches or 152mm tall making them perfect for hobby painting, display, and 28-32mm scale table top gaming! If you need a new final boss, a overlord for your cult, or just a new way to wipe the party you’ve got trapped in the Underworld.. you’ve come to the right place! They will make perfect Christmas gifts for the gamers, painters, and dungeon masters in your life.
Today it’s the turn of our new Spanish Aeronef to hit the website. This is our first completely new fleet in quite a while, and the first to be digitally sculpted from the start. The original designs are based on a prototype that Phil made many, many years ago that we attempted to cast but didn’t survive the mould-making process. We resurrected the design and extended the fleet to a total of nine vessels from battleship down to a tiny patrol nef. The ships have a broadside layout with most of the firepower concentrated in turrets with little or no forward or aft arcs of fire. The two capital ships have resin hulls with metal superstructures and everything from destroyer up has separate turrets.

Hannibal: Rome vs. Carthage is one of the best two-player games ever published. The game is renowned for its tense, well-balanced mechanics. And it tells a great story. HANNIBAL crossing the Alps on his herd of elephants is one of the most memorable events in history.
The development team at PHALANX has given this game a careful, meticulous update. It is now easier and faster to play. It plays considerably shorter. It has received new, stunning art. It is even better than it used to be.
Short Order Hero is a devious, cut throat, challenge for friends wanting to flex their master culinary chops. The story behind the game is that you are one of five short order cooks working in a greasy diner. The owner of the diner tells the crew that at the end of the night he can can only keep one cook. You are working your rump roast off serving up the best you can, but your competition is doing their best to sabotage you. Can you win out and secure the job?
Find out if YOU can become the Short Order Hero!
