Monday Terrain Corner

Well, it wasn’t exactly “clock out Friday. Seemingly immediately clock in on Monday” but the whole of the weekend still felt faster than any individual day last week. And I’m still at home for the start of this week. But the internet should be going in at the new office in the next couple of days. Maybe I’ll have direct human interaction again! But in the meantime, let’s get your gaming tables looking as good as possible for when you interact with other gamers while playing some games.

Today in the Terrain Corner we have: New Industrial Zone Terrain From Warzone Studio, HMAS Furious Steampunk Airship Up On Kickstarter, North Pass Gaming Mat Available From Pwork Wargame, Manorhouse Workshop Update 13 – Back to the… Dynamic Floors & Sewers, and Heroic Maps – Spacecraft: HLS Freighter “Capabilita” Now Available.

Thursday Terrain Corner

Well, it’s Thursday and that means a couple things. 1) I’m in my Thursday shirt. 2) The weekend’s just over a day away. 3) We’ve gotta make sure that your gaming tables look as good as they possibly can. As the first one is already in play and the second we can’t really do much about (unless you happen to have a time machine handy), let’s take care of that third one.

In the Terrain Corner today we have: Mobilescape Adventures Tabletop RPG Terrain Up On Kickstarter, Modular Underground Project Now Offering Pre-Painted Terrain, Crossover Miniatures Running Massive Zeppelin Terrain Kickstarter, Deep-Cut Studio releases specialised game mats for Malifaux, Castle II Kickstarter from Miniature Building Authority Running Now, and Outlander: Pwork Wargames Gaming Mat Now Available.

Terrain Snippets Corner

It’s been a very busy week. What with 2 days of travel and then yesterday being the start of Gen Con. As such, I didn’t get a chance to type up yesterday’s Terrain Corner. So, as I’ve got a couple minutes here back at the room (phone’s gotta charge, because without a charged phone, that means no photos. No photos means sad TGN viewers. Charge, phone! Charge!), I wanted to give you both your Terrain Corner as well as your Friday Snippets all in one.

So, in this installment we have: New 32mm and 40mm Ruins of Sanctuary Base Sets From Tabletop-Art, Worldographer: Hexographer 2 Kickstarter now live, Warsenal GenCon New Release – Taugak Redoubt, Modular City Terrain Tiles Available From Crossover Miniatures, Lifeless Land: Pwork Wargames Sci-Fi Mat Now Available, New Ruined Graveyard Walls available from Skull Forge Scenics, Kromlech New Release: Legionary Sentry Guns, Brigade Models Release 15mm Scenic Items, and Final Days For Willy Miniatures Dwarf Fantasy Sports Team On Kickstarter.

Terrain Corner/Snippets

So, as I was in a car for just slightly more than 1/2 of yesterday, I didn’t get much of a chance to post up the Midweek Snippets post. As such, I’m rolling it in with today’s Terrain Corner, as I have a bit of time right now to do so (and to give you a “peek behind the curtain,” I’m actually typing this late at night here on Wednesday).

Anyway, in this Terrain Corner/Snippets post we have: Gaddis Gaming Launches 28mm WWII Miniatures Kickstarter, Turn One Gaming Supplies Releases 8-Bit Dice, Donnybrook skirmish game rulebook now available, Post Apocalyptic Dwarf Bikers Up On Kickstarter, Round-Lip Space Dungeon Bases Available From Tabletop-Art, Heroic Maps – Giant Maps: The Great Labyrinth Now Available, MidKnight Heroes Super Chibi Finial sculpts are in and late pledge extended, Crossover Miniatures Releases Frederick Class Airship, Meka Desert: Pwork Wargames science fiction gaming mat, Gamelyn responds to backers with only 3 days left, and Battle Valor Games 15mm Fantasy New Releases.

Thursday Terrain Corner

We’re getting there, kids. Slowly but surely. The weekend is getting closer.
It was looking like today might’ve had a chance at being a snow day here in Atlanta, but such was not the case. So at least here, we’re not stuck inside. For those of you further north that are stuck inside, why not get out some minis and play a game? And if you’re going to be doing that, you’ll want your table to look nice. Well, that’s where the Terrain Corner comes in.

Today’s stories include: New Orc Terrain Deal From LaserCutCard, Manorhouse Workshop Update#5 – Forgotten Halls: the upper floor inserts in details, and Crossover Miniatures Releases Omura Martian Airship.

Monday Terrain Corner

After a couple weeks of vacations, it’s back in the office, on the regular, for a spell. Yay?
Actually, that’s not so bad. I’m one of those “regular routine” sort of people, anyway. So it’s all good.
I hope everyone’s starting to get a chance to play the games and such that they got for the holiday season. Now that you’ve got the games and minis, you’ll need to make your tables look as good as possible. That’s what we’re here for today, with our Terrain Corner.

Today’s stories include: Heroic Maps Jungle Ruins Modular Kit Available, Heroic Maps The Deepwood Catacombs Available, New German Houses in 15mm & 1:72 from Najewitz Modellbau, and Crossover Miniatures Releases Shipping Containers for Modern Games.

Their new line of miniatures, that they have up on Kickstarter now, are for their new UFO Squad sci-fi skirmish game.

Play Unplugged reviews Dr. E-Vil from Crossover Miniatures

Play Unplugged takes a look at the Dr. E-Vil miniature from Crossover Miniatures in their latest review.


From the review:

Did everyone have a great holiday season? I hope you did! Every year around this time my wargaming pals get together at our LGS and there is often a modest gift exchange. My gaming groups are pretty darn thoughtful in general, and with so much awesome and exciting stuff going on in the world of miniature gaming, it’s hard not to get some sweet gifts. One of my gifts from this gathering just happened to be perfect for the first of what will be my on-going miniature review series, highlighting cool figures I’ve found that I think you will love.

Crossover Miniatures New Releases and Price Drop

Crossover Miniatures has posted up their most recent releases. Plus, they’ve dropped some of their prices. That’s certainly good news for everyone.


From the update:

The Thugs and Crash & Burn
A huge thanks to all of our Kickstarter backers for making these next few releases possible. We managed to fund 21 new models that will be released over the next three months.

Our first four releases are the Villains Crash & Burn and our new Thug Minions. There is a leader and a set of 4 thugs to order around.

Price Decrease
All of our previous Heroes and Villains have had a price decrease to $5.75. Our sales have finally been able to support a lower price point and still leave room for further developing the line. I hope you will be able to enjoy the fruits of this small victory.

European Orders

Minibits is expecting their shipment of miniatures tomorrow or the next day. They should be listed on soon for either order or preorder. So save yourself some tax and hassle and order from within the EU!

Free Super System 3 Rules for Backers of Crossover Miniatures Kickstarter

Crossover Miniatures is in their final hours on Kickstarter. To help get through another stretch goal or two, they’re offering the Super System 3 rules for certain backer levels.

From the announcement:

I’ve received an email from Scott Pyle (the author of the SuperSystem 3 rules) today. He will be generously donating a free copy of the SuperSystem 3rd ed. PDF to backers from the Henchman Boss level and up! So anyone contributing $44 or more to the project will receive them when the rewards ship. This was a fantastic way to increase the value of our project without increasing the cost to the backers.

This is a great opportunity and one that will allow you to peruse a great little game system if you haven’t already. You can spend hours just reading through the character build system. This PDF makes a fine addition to our project!

We believe that any time a project in our little niche is successful, we are all successful. So pass the word around!

Onwards and upwards!

Crossover Miniatures launches Super Hero model Kickstarter

Crossover Miniatures has a new Super Hero Miniatures Kickstarter campaign running. Go check it out.

From the campaign:

Welcome to our project page, I’d love to tell you about what we want to make. Crossover Miniatures plans to produce a load of new 28mm heroes, villains, and minions in white metal to decorate your mantle pieces and table tops.

We plan to produce 5 Heroes/Villains and 12 different minions, each with 3 different head options.

The Minions will be shipped with all three head options ONLY during this Kickstarter. Once it’s over, they will only be available with a single head option.

Crossover Miniatures is continuing in it’s quest to bring you Intellectual Property free supers and minions. We think it’s more fun to create our own characters, and we think you do too!

Crossover Miniatures keeps shipping rates for February

Crossover Miniatures knows the USPS has raised their rates, but they don’t care (at least for February), and are even having a sale.

From the announcement:

We remain committed to our $2 (or free) shipping to any location in the USA. That will remain unchanged.

After February, our international prices will be adjusted. Rest assured our rates will remain cheaper than actual postage costs.

So, if you want to get an order in this month, just use the code LAUGH10 on the cart page to get an additional 10% off.

Have a great short month!

Crossover Miniatures Offers New Duo

Crossover Miniatures has a new duo of superheroes over in their webstore, ready for action.

From the update:

September is wrapping up and October is bringing cooler weather and a new sale at Crossover Miniatures.
New Duo in the Shop I’m bringing his month, I’ve packaged Ram Jam and Whiskers together for $11.00 USD. Get this pair of figures together, and save a few bucks.

Cheap Shipping

This seemed popular last month, so I’m going to keep offering a $3 off shipping deal. That should allow you to pop one to four minis in the cart (for U.S. residents) and get them shipped to you for free. So if you just want to order one or two minis to see how they feel, go for it, this is a great chance to do it cheaply. Enter 3OFFSHIPPING to get $3 USD off any shipping. This is only available once per customer.

Minibits Now the UK Stockist for Crossover Miniatures

Crossover Miniatures now has a new UK stockist: Minibits.

From the update:

We are pleased to announce that Crossover Miniatures will be available in the EU from Minibits! You can find them at

With so many EU countries finally enforcing VAT laws on imports, this move was very improtant to us. It allows our European customers to get our fantastic miniatures without having to worry about paying extra taxes and a large fee for the ‘priveledge’ of having the tax man go through your package. Let Leon at Minibits take care of that for you and just order with him, importation has already been taken care of.

MOST IMPORTANTLY, Crossover Miniatures will be available on the UK show scene. Right now, he’s planning on going to Colours, World Wargames, and Skelp. Get a look at the minis in person if you can, they are fabulous!

You can still order from the website if you would like, but I encourage you to have a look at as well. While he is a completely seperate company from Crossover Miniatures, he has shown himself to be a great guy to deal with and an honest trader in every respect!

Crossover Miniatures Opens the Head Shoppe

Crossover Miniatures now offers sprues of their heads available on their own.

From the release:

I have been told by many people that I should be making separate head spru molds and selling the heads separately. I haven’t been doing this as it’s quite expensive and I’m not sure it will be financially viable. BUT here’s the best attempt I can make to try and keep the customers happy. Crossover miniatures has opened it’s own Head Shoppe! You won’t find any bath salts or paraphernalia, just some cool heads for conversions. Check them out, I hope you find something you like.

All of our figures are Heroic 28mm and the heads are on sale now for $1.50 for four.

I’ve also hooked up Facebook and Twitter, so if you prefer to get your updates that way, please friend us or follow us. For those up you that prefer email updates, we do those too. Just find the signup on the right hand side of the site and we’ll send you an email when there is big news to tell!

Crossover Miniatures holding “Get the Lead Out” Sale

Crossover Miniatures is having a “Get the Lead Out” sale (get it?). Go check ’em out and get some models for cheaper than usual.

It’s time to “Get the Lead Out” at Crossover Miniatures! Enter the code “8LEADOUT” on the cart page at our web store for $5 off any order of $35 or more!

Crossover Minatures is opening it’s doors … er … website

Crossover Miniatures is now open for business. Check out what they’ve got to offer.

From the announcement:

After our successful Kickstarter campaign, all the backers have received their models and that means it’s time to open the webstore and give everyone a chance to own these fantastic minis.
Each of our Miniatures is sculpted with three different heads so you can choose which one to use. Most of the heads are interchangeable with the other models. You can find out which are compatible when looking at each item in the store. When you order a Hero/Villain, you get all three heads. When you order sets of minions, you get to choose the head you like best.
All of our minis are unique but serve to represent well known archetypes in the Super Hero world. Many minis can also fill roles in modern games, pulp games or spy games.
Take a look around the store and see if there is something you like.
Get ‘em while the molds are fresh!

Crossover Miniatures Previews New Super Villain

Crossover Miniatures previews an upcoming miniature on Kickstarter:

From their post:

I’ve got some great shots of our new Villain. We wanted some muscle for our Super Villain figure, so we thought about who you would have to go through to get to the master mind. Someone with a lot of muscle seemed like a great answer, so Soapy gave us a lot of muscle.

I picked these three heads to give a lot of variety. There is a set of Ram horns, a hockey mask, and a freakish head for a slightly ghoulish look. These should offer you chance to represent different power levels with the same guy. I personally can’t wait to paint a few of them up in different colors to see how that changes the look and feel of the figure.
