On the Lamb Games (yes, I know it’s not 2pm) has posted up a review of their 2012 and a look forward to their 2013.

From the update:

2012 has been a good year for OTLG! We ran two successful Kickstarter campaigns this year, got a new distributor, and added several new retailers to our listing of stockists. The following is a quick rundown of each of our currently active product lines, and what is going on with them:

On the Lamb Games posts preview for Vizier for Brushfire & ships Veiled Assassin

On the Lamb Games is showing off the new Vizier for Brushfire from their Kickstarter funding campaign.
They’ve also wanted to say that the Veiled Assassins (Sculpted by Jason Wiebe) is now shipping

From the preview:

We’ve finally gotten the Vizier, and it will be getting molded/casted up very soon.
Because of the delay in getting this done, I’ve sent word to our caster to get us the Viziers needed for backers with just the Master Mold, rather than waiting for production molds to be completed. This should speed things up in getting them out the door to you.

On the Lamb Games posts photo of new Valkyr MkI for Brushfire

On the Lamb Games gives us a look at their Valkyr MkI for Brushfire. It’s a big ‘un.

From the preview:

Our caster just sent along this pic of the Valkyr Mk.1 for Brushfire, along with a Privateer Press model for scale comparison.

Edit to add: They’ve also updated their Kickstarter with a look at the green for the Earth Troll.

On the Lamb Games headed to The WarStore Weekend

On the Lamb will be making their way to The WarStore Weekend next week. Stop by and say, “Hi!” and try out Brushfire and Endless Fantasy Tactics.

Next week (26th-28th) we’ll be at The Warstore Weekend in Secaucus, NJ. We’ll be running games of Endless and Brushfire, so if you’re in the area and want to get a game with the creators this is your chance (until next year). Daniel Fokine (Sculptor for the Sorcerer, Earth Troll, and most of Brushfire) will also be there for part of the weekend, as will Jennifer Letts (OTLG Studio Painter).

We’ll also be hanging around Dropzone Games on the 29th in Glen Burnie, MD on our way back to Florida.

From the preview:

New piece of concept artwork from Heath Foley, the Gecko Rider troop for Scyzantium.

New Brushfire Green – Valkyr Mk.1

On The Lamb Games are a great group of people and I loved meeting them at GenCon last weekend. Anyway, they’ve got some exciting things coming up for Brushfire and here’s one of ’em. The Valkyr Mk. 1.

From the preview:

Sculpted by Bob Naismith
The first model in the new Mark (Mk.) series of Valkyr, the Mk. 1 brings new gyroscopic and armor technologies into the basic defense unit of the county of Federwerk. Designed to fit the slightly larger height of Rat pilots and with controls within reach of the smaller Shrews, the Valkyr Corps is expanding quickly, as thousands of these clockwork soldiers come off the assembly line. Technology sharing between Vandalands and the Civitan Trade Alliance has instantly seen a boon to the nation, and as new Mk series Valkyr move from the drawing board to the factory, the combat roles of the Valkyr will likely expand.

Paperfire – Paper Miniatures for Brushfire

On The Lamb Games has some new paper miniatures available over on Wargame Vault to give you a chance to try out Brushfire on the cheap.

From the announcement:

Want to give Brushfire a try without having to spend a dime? Use Paperfire along with the Brushfire Quickstart Rules to get the basics of the game down before committing to it. This PDF includes paper cut outs of the models included in the Aquitar and Mare-Civitas warband starter sets, just print, cut, and play!

You will of course need a friend, or a particularly skillful Dog to play with, a table to play on, and a handful of D10 dice.
