Darkest Star Games

Once again we're here at a Wednesday. The first half of the week is done. The rest of it stretches before us like a 2-day behemoth.
Or maybe it's not so bad for you. Maybe Thursday and Friday are like puppy-dogs. That'd be nice. I love puppies. But now we're getting off-topic.

On-topic, we've collected some bite-sized stories for you and present them now.

In this grouping we've got: New Carthaginian Shield Transfers from Victrix, More WIPs pics of the Queen Of Hearts by Kabuki Models, New Magnetic Foil 32mm Rounds from Tabletop-Art, some more episodes of The Fiver from The Meeple Mechanic, The Nexus Terror from Icarus Miniatures Artwork Preview, Meet Brunhild and The Flag for War of Wonders Miniatures Game, Kromlech New Release - Hobby Drill and Super Glue Activator, New Ogre Cossacks Band from Scibor, New 15mm Hippogriff Aerodyne pre-order from Darkest Star Games, and Previews of the Harlequin Burglar for ShadowSea.

Darkest Star Games has their March releases now available over in their webshop for you 15mm sci-fi gamers to enjoy.


From the release:

This month Darkest Star Games brings a new faction to the Spec-Sec anime-inspired 15mm sci-fi line with the release of the Keparkian External Security Squad. This pack contains three Kepark Special Forces troops and a pair of Commando type Combat Robots, ready to intervene in developing situations on foreign soil. $4usd per pack.

We also present Robear Medisi, a Tinker-for-hire that can build just about anything mechanical or cybernetic someone is willing to pat for. $1 per figure.

Lastly, Medisi's latest creation for the criminally minded: the Jackdaw drive-armor. Designed by Charles Oines, the Jackdaw is a heavily modified Vantage drive-armor with jump-jets installed. Perfect for the aspiring nihilist to cause havoc with... 11 part metal kit, $10usd each.

These new releases can be found on the Spec-Sec product page and more info can be found on our blog.
Thank you for looking, and happy gaming!

Beyond the Gates of Antares is over on Kickstarter and looking for funding. Go check out the latest endeavor from Rick Priestley.

From the campaign:

Beyond the Gates of Antares is a brand new science fiction wargame universe from Rick Priestley - the creator of the Warhammer 40,000 game universe - and YOU!

Unlike other Kickstarter miniature projects that have done most of the work before hand, we’re here so that we can see if you are interested in not only backing us to fund the project but also if you’re interested in helping us develop the game rules, artwork, miniature range, tactical abilities, scenery, vehicles and everything else. We already know much of the initial design (well, it’s mostly in Rick’s head at the moment..) and we want to work with a unique set of enthusiasts with the vision to fund it and help us make it the best wargame experience that exists.

Simply put: we NEED you!
