    Pulp Monsters have posted the concept art for the latest addition to Pulp City’s A.R.C. faction, Le Murtiple. The character comes as three miniatures to represent his cloning power.

    From their website:

    Le Murtiple was never a part of the apes in space project. A.R.C. came across him deep in the South American jungle while overthrowing one of the local dictators. And boy, Le Murtiple was not happy about it. For years he hid his special powers and intelligence, pretending to be a trophy pet creature caught in the world of the celebrity-like lifestyles of corrupted politicians and bloodshed. And he thrived, using his ability to multiply to wreak havoc and turn hotheaded machos against each other.

    In the end, who would have blamed the innocence lemure?

    WebLost_Worlds_Front220.jpgTwo Hour Wargames have released a new set of rules, Adventures in the Lost Lands.

    From their website:?You hear the whispers. Giant creatures from the dawn of time alive and walking the earth. Dinosaurs. How can it be? As a hunter you have to find out the truth so you follow the rumors to this God-forsaken corner of the world, Lemuria.

    You’ve spent days and large sums of money in tracking the Beast and now it’s come to this. Your bearer trembles as he pulls back the branch giving you a clear view of the Beast in all its splendor. As you steady your aim it turns, looks you in the eye and at that moment you wonder…

    Adventures in the Lost Lands, introduces you to a world like no other. A world of giant creatures and prehistoric men where you can:
    • Be a Pulp Era hero exploring Lost Lands and searching for valuable treasure.
    • Lead your tribe of primitive cavemen in a fight against other primitive tribes.
    • Be a modern day big game hunter who travels to a pre-historic land that time forgot.
    • Command a Victorian Era expedition bent on discovery and conquest.
    • Be a dinosaur, not only a dinosaur, but THE dinosaur, as you take on all others for supremacy.
    • Or maybe command a squad of WW 2 GIs blasted into a strange pre-historic world while on maneuvers in Louisiana.

    Hut_001.jpg

    From their website:

    Available in the ‘Scenic Items’ section of our Spanish Civil War shop

    We are very pleased to announce the first releases in our range of 28mm (1/56th scale) buildings. These have been designed to complement our Spanish Civil War range, but gamers will find that many of them can serve in other periods and theatres from Napoleonics to Moderns and beyond.

    We will be rapidly adding to this range with more general purpose buildings of all sizes, a Spanish church and many smaller parts such as walls and gateways.

    Grindhouse Games are offering Incursion t-shirts for a limited time.

    From their website:

    Hey folks, we’re doing a small print run of shirts for Grindhouse staff. Yes, we’re that new…we don’t even have proper shirts yet :-). We need to order by Friday to make our deadline for a big launch event that’s happening March 27th. John, Tammy, and I got to thinking that perhaps you guys might also want a shirt while we’re at it. To that end, we’ve put up some (very) temporary buy buttons in the online store here

    Please order by midday, USA central time this Friday, March 5. That’s when the order goes in to our printer. The shirts will not be available after that unless we just happen to have some extras. The great news is that these are being printed at Circle R in California with whom we’ve done probably a dozen runs over the last few years for club shirts, Warhammer events, etc. The date is solid. None of that China nonsense. (cold shiver)

    Privateer Press have posted a preview of the Cryx Warcaster Lich Lord Venethrax.

    From their website:

    Tasked with the researching of draconic lore, Lich Lord Venethrax is supremely well-suited to root out and destroy the Dragonfather’s dark progeny. Venethrax has dedicated his immortal existence to Toruk’s final war and is prepared to consume every blighted creature in charnel flames and blood. His mighty halberd, Wyrmbane, has dismembered countless draconic creations, and the lich lord’s very presence corrodes the world around him. That he now steps forth from Cryx is a dire portent, for it heralds the coming of war between the dragons.

    North Star Military Figures have added a new 19th Century African Matabele range to their online store.

    n5.jpg

    From their announcement:

    The Matabele are an African tribe whose origins are in the mighty Zulu Nation. During the early 19th Century they rebelled and created an infamous name for themselves whilst they escaped North from Shaka Zulu, fighting Zulu Impis, Boer settlers and every tribe they met to eventually settle in what is now Zimbabwe. The Matabele Kingdom was defeated in 1893 by Cecil Rhodes and his British South Africa Company. They rebelled in 1896, in what is described as Zimbabwe’s first Battle for Independence.

    The Matabele range from North Star Military Figures is now available and photographs of all the packs are on the website, www.northstarfigures.com under North Star Africa!

    There are 10 packs available, each of four different figures. The Warrior packs go from figures wearing very little right upto full regalia, each carrying an assegai and shield, so you can represent any style of Matabele army.

    From their announcement:

    Firstly, new releases – Germy’s 6mm Power Armour are now available, in a 24-figure platoon for £2.50. There’s also a new fighter type, the YongSheng, for the CDSU fleet in a pack of 12 for £1.50.

    Secondly, we’ve become aware of some e-mail issues that have meant that some people are having trouble contacting us. This seems to be a problem with our hosting company who have recently ‘upgraded’ our e-mail and changed their spam filtering rules – and in doing so seem to be rejecting significant legitimate portions of the internet. We’re looking to set up alternative e-mail addresses until the problem is resolved.

    Finally, as last year we’ve put up a new page to detail our planned releases for Salute in April this year. The first entry is for the first ships of the Pacific Federation spacefleet.
