    Fantasy Flight Games have posted a new preview of the Horus Heresy boardgame looking at the combat system in the game.

    From their website:

    We’ll explore how these card-driven mechanics make for a more exciting and challenging game in the coming weeks, especially with regards to long-term strategic play versus the short-term tactical rhythm of combat. Before we can dive deeper we need some context for how units are represented on the battlefield, and learn a bit about how they are put to use during the game.

    Whether taking command over the collected armies of the Imperium or of the Traitor legions, you will have control over two types of troops: units and heroes.

    WorldWorksGames have released a Java application, the TerrainlinX Model Planner V1, used to help create layouts with their TerrainlinX terrain kits.

    planner_splash.jpg

    From their website:

    WorldWorksGames continues to break new ground with its TerrainlinX system by offering users an entirely new way to plan their layouts. Organize, Plan, Layer, Build, Share.

    Organize: The TerrainlinX model planner organizes all TerrainlinX compatible modelsets in a drop-down interface. New planner tile sets will be added for free as each new TerrainlinX modelset is released.

    Plan: An intuitive user interface and common sense tools allow you to manipulate tiles, walls, posts, balconies, stairs, ramps and generic gaming markers. In no time you’ll be designing your layouts quickly and easily.

    Layer: A groundbreaking layers system allows you to clearly define each stacking level of your TerrainlinX layout. Design your multilevel terrain to interact in astounding ways. Add as many layers as you like, view lower and upper layers with a user defined transparency as you build.

    Build: The TerrainlinX planner builds a dynamic manifest of the items based on your layout, telling you which PDF page to print from and how many pages you’ll need to print to start your build. Its like having a WWG build tutor on your computer.

    Share: Save your layout as a freely editable planner file or PNG image file, to share with others or to collaborate. Click the “community” button to access full planner support, future feature requests and of course to share and show off your TLX layouts.

    WorldWorksGames have released the Lost Halls of the Dwarven Kings terrain set.

    losthalls.jpg

    From their website:

    High in the mountains, the old fortress had stood for centuries. Impregnable, unconquerable, no army could assail it, no enemy could breach it save one: nature itself. The Great Quake shattered the mountains, the fortress cracked and fell. Abandoned, forgotten, exposed to the elements it waits. Waits for those brave enough to dare enter it’s darkened halls and claim the lost treasures within. No easy task to be sure, for the mountains are home to vicious wolves and nomadic tribes of frost goblins, even the elusive Yheti, to say nothing of the spirits of those lost to the Great Quake. In huddled coners and in whispered tones it is said that even greater evils dwell within the lost halls of the Dwarven Kings…

    Lost Halls of the Dwarven Kings contains all of the following:

    • 8 6″x6″ floors in 1″, 1.5″ and gridless formats
    • 4 6″x3″ halls in 1″, 1.5″ and gridless formats
    • 10 3″x3″ small floors in 1″, 1.5″ and gridless formats
    • Uniqe and generic post anchors
    • Big arched wall
    • Forge room walls
    • Hallway arches

    MERCS Miniatures are now available from Warpath Games.

    From their announcement:

    We are proud to announce that Warpath Distribution has agreed to distribute MERCS miniatures and *ahem* future products. Warpath currently supplies “a network of over 300 retail shops. Most are in the USA, some in Canada and some worldwide. [They] also have a partnership with distributors based in Germany and Australia, who also have networks of stores in their own area.” We are very excited about what this could mean for MERCS, but realize we have more work than ever.

    We’ve been working for the better part of 3 weeks to get prepared, and we finally gave them the go ahead to solicit orders for the CCC and KemVar today. It is a small but very significant step in making sure more people become aware of what you already know–MERCS is the future. Or in Keith’s own words, the bomb-dig.

    So visit your local gaming store, ask them if they deal with Warpath. If they do, tell them to order some MERCS. If they don’t, tell them to call Warpath, and then tell them to order some MERCS. You are our voice to your community. Be passionate.
