I hope your weekend is going well (or has gone well if you are much further East than where I am currently). Mine’s been full of some older movies that were watched just for the hell of it (such as Beavis and Butt-Head Do America, again, because just for the hell of it).
And now it’s Sunday, so that means a day of housework for me. It also means a collection of bite-sized stories for you.
In this batch we have: New Hansom Tank for Empire of the Dead, Midknight Heroes Interview on CPOP, Advanced Deployment Debuts New Acrylic Color and Free Tokens, and Secrets of the Lost Tomb: The Elite Missions Kickstarter Launching in 9 Days.
Jedadiah Tankovsky built the first Hansom tank in 1875. Originally conceived as a mode of transport for important dignitaries and people of well-to-do the Hansom Armoured Conveyor was an unarmed two passenger and driver machine, driven by twin three horse power Infernum compression engines built by Harrison & Harrison of 36 Leather Lane Holborn. However Lord Howell of Keffbourne Master of the Queens Armouries saw another application for this most wondrous of machines. By the addition of a Gatling gun and a gunners seat he created the worlds first Tankovsky or Tank as the lower classes came to call it. Another excellent model designed by our master model maker Andy Rawling to add to your Empire of the Dead world!
The rules for the Hansom Tank and other Steampunk Vehicles and Contraptions for Empire of the Dead will be available soon via the brand new West Wind website.
The people over at CPOP interviewed MidKnight Hereos. In the Interview they find out what makes the owner tick and his plans for MidKnight Heroes. Its a good read check it out!
Advanced Deployment is pleased to announce a new color in their acrylic line: Transparent Gray!
A lighter color than smoke, and lacking the brown undertones, this color is perfect for clouds, stealth markers, or just a subtle subdued set of tokens!
To celebrate, if you place an order of $20 ore more between today and 9/15 you will receive a set of stealth tokens in our newest color for free!
