Dark Art Studios


Friday, glorious gatekeeper to the weekend. For many of us, just a couple more hours until we, giddy as schoolchildren, run out of our offices and into several blissful days of doing... just... whatever the hell we want.
Friday also means a bit of a smorgasbord of bite-sized stories we've collected.

In this batch we have: Artana Launches The Best Damn Gaming Coins Ever...Two Kickstarter, Dungeon Crawler Minis Kickstarter: The Behemoth, DrunkQuest Kickstarter Stretch Goals announced, Imaginative Miniatures New Releases, Releases for September from The Ion Age, Alkemny's Kickstarter to Launch Next Month, Warsenal Limited Edition Unit Markers for Infinity, Dark Art Studios Posts Autumn Releases, Khurasan releases 18mm WSS Austrians/Imperials, and Brigade Models Release 15mm Indonesian Grav Tanks.

Dark Art Studios has released their first ever tabletop game. Arena of Doom pits you against your opponents in a gladiator-style combat game set in a dark fantasy world. They have the game available for free to print and play over on their website.
Summer is a time of fun in the sun, beaches, outdoor activities, and wacky adventures.
For a short while, then you end up sunburned and realize it's 110 in the shade and are like, "man, I just need to get in to my hobby tables!"
Dark Art Studio is helping you get some new figures to work on with their Summer Sale, happening now.
Welcome back, TGN Readers. The week is half-over. Or it's half-started. I guess that depends on if your an optimist or a pessimist. Or how much you liked last weekend versus are looking forward to the one about to come up. Or some other psychology stuff that doesn't really matter right now.

What does matter are getting you some more bite-sized stories that we've collected recently.

In this batch we've got: Photon Games Announces Sultan's Library Kickstarter and Contest, Pedion Launches Modular Battlefield Kickstarter, Rolljordan Updates Icelanders Fantasy Sports Team Indiegogo Campaign, Z War One Kickstarter launches June 1st, New 40mm Hero Bases From Tabletop-Art, 1pFB Beginner's Guide Released, The Flying Pig Terrain Company Acquires Rick's Scenics, Zarglian Invaders released by Grinning Skull, Clukkatrix giant mutant chicken released by Grinning Skull, Sengoku 15mm Japanese Fantasy II Released, New Templates and Tokens from Sally 4th, Dark Art Studios Releases Gurthrop the Ghoul King, Sheep Happens coming to Kickstarter this June, RN Estudio Announces 4 New Fantasy Football Teams coming to Indiegogo, Brickerium Launches Dungeon Revolutions Kickstarter, and Manorhouse Workshop Update #27 – Modular Underground Project – In the box.

Dark Art Studios has a set of four limited edition minis over in their webshop. They only made 100 of each of these minis, so if you'd like to get one or all of them, you'd better hurry. These resins are first-run models and will eventually be made into metal sculpts.

From the release:
It's Sunday. Hopefully you had an epic Saturday of gaming. For those that went to Salute, I hope it was a blast. I'm really jealous of those that were able to go. It's a show I'd love to make it to at some point in time.

My Saturday was full of building the Eisenkern APC from DreamForge-Games. Expect the review of that kit later this week. Sneak Preview: There are 12 trooper minis inside the model. Each model is made up of about 11 pieces. So that's well over 100 parts just for models inside the tank.

Anyway, on to our regular Sunday piece of collecting the bite-sized stories we've come across over the past couple days and presenting them to you now.

In this batch we've got: Entire 28mm Fantasy Dwarf range now released at Alternative Armies, Zen Bins Dice Masters Cases on Kickstarter, More Installments of The Fiver from The Meeple Mechanic, CROM: Conan Rise of Monsters Circle of Iron tease, Kromlech New Release - Legionaries Spike Hammers and Biker Legs, Battlefront releases Twin 8.8cm FlaK37 Railway Car, Sally 4th Free textures & furniture for Terra Blocks, New Dwarf Beer Maiden from Kabuki Models, Dark Art Studios Spring Releases posted, and Terrible Kid Stuff - New release - The Child Thief.

Hey kids,

Laundry's getting cleaned, red beans and rice are in the pot for dinner, and I'm about to do some editing for the next issue of Ravage. In the meantime, he's some of the shorter stories we found in the past couple days we wanted you to know about.

Included are: the next update from Manorhouse Workshop about their underground terrain, New preview art and a green from Broken Contract, New Preview of Virgil from Siren Miniatures, New Woodland Indians available from Wargames Factory, New 15mm Tanks from Brigade Models, a new Dark Treeman from Dark Art Studios, Finger and Toe releases new Crates terrain pdf., and Ludus Magnus Studio previews their final render for their Centaur Archer.

Dark Art Studios is here to help add some ambiance to your gaming sessions with 5 new Dungeon Soundscapes. Stop gaming with your little sister's Janet Jackson tapes playing in the background (she's still a thing, right? I'm not old! I'm not out of touch with pop culture! I swear!) and get some more appropriate music going.
Besides, they're only £0.50 apiece. Why not try them out?
