Sometimes you just miss out on a crowdfunding campaign. With so many going on all the time, it’s easy to let one slip by, or maybe you just didn’t have the funds at the time. But it’s often not too late when that timer hits 0. There’s usually a late-pledge period. And if you’re wanting to get in on Blackwater Gulch‘s latest Kickstarter campaign, Minions & Monsters, your chance is now.
The folks over at Gangfight Games are chugging along with their newest Blackwater Gulch Kickstarter campaign. This new expansion looks to bring you a bunch of new figures, and they know that some of you might just want it all. So they’ve created a new pledge level that gives you just that. They’re also showing off new renders for Tiny, the Ogre Lawman. If anyone’s going to be able to wield an old-west-style Gatling gun, it’d be an Ogre.
The folks over at Blackwater Gulch are looking to expand the ranch once again. They’ve launched a Kickstarter campaign for their Minions and Monsters expansion. It’s full of miniatures for all types of posses. You’ve got lawmen. You’ve got outlaws. You’ve got monsters (seems fitting, since it’s in the name there). You can go check it out and pledge now.
As you know, I love when a Kickstarter campaign is successful and then goes to regular retail sale. This is one of those posts. Gangfight Games had their Kickstarter to bring you a new edition of Blackwater Gulch. Now that the backers have their products, you can go in and get yours. There’s the new rulebook and cards, as well as a bunch of faction starter boxes to get you going, pardner.
Gangfight Games is gearing up for a new Kickstarter campaign for Blackwater Gulch. They’ve posted up some artwork so you can be excited about it. And, I mean, one of the new figures they’ll be looking to make is a weregator. So they’ve got my attention there. But that’s not the only strange thing they’re working on.
We’ve made it back to Friday. We all know my love of today. But it’s not just any Friday. It’s International Tabletop Day Eve. Yes, tomorrow we celebrate our hobby all over the world. Hopefully you’re planning on going out and celebrating. Many LGSs and gaming clubs have festivities planned. Be sure to check with yours and see what’s going on. And if you’re going to be doing all that gaming, you should be well-fed. So let’s nosh on some bite-sized gaming stories.
Today we have: New 3D Printable Tanks by 3DWargaming, Dark Sword Miniatures’ Stephanie Law Masterworks Expansion Up On Kickstarter, Blackwater Gulch Pledge Manager closing May 1st, Runewars Miniature Game Official Army Painting Guides Available From The Army Painter, and RBJ Games’ Significant Seven Kickstarter Reaches Funding Goal.
Since Kickstarter campaigns only run for a relatively short amount of time, it’s very easy to miss one. And with them usually having special pricing and Kickstarter-exclusive pieces, you can really kick yourself for not getting in on one. Thankfully, there’s the Pledge Manager period, where companies will also let you jump in on the action. Just such a thing is happening now with Gangfight Games and Blackwater Gulch.
The work week continues along. It’s already half-over, in fact. Hopefully yours is going well. Mine’s not been great, but I’m making it through. Got board game day at the library coming up this weekend again. Should be a good time. But in the meantime, let’s bulk up on some bite-size gaming stories.
On the platter today we have: Final Day For D13 and D15 On Kickstarter: Now with Glow-in-the-Dark Dice, BugBear Miniatures WW2 US Troopers Preview, Rebel Minis Dark Hold Goblin Adventures RPG Last Days On Kickstarter, Divine Art Playing Cards Up On Kickstarter, New Iberian Cavalry Available From Victrix, Relicblade: Bone and Darkness Coming To Kickstarter Next Month, Ashton Campbell rides into Blackwater Gulch, and Kromlech New Release: Legionary Lascannon.
The Year of New Editions rolls along. This time headed to the weird West with Gangfight Games’ Blackwater Gulch, 2nd Edition. For those that don’t know, Blackwater Gulch is set during the Gold Rush era (you know, like where the 49ers get their name from). Everyone’s looking to strike it rich. Now, there’s two ways to get gold. You can go out and dig it up for yourself. Or you can just ambush some unsuspecting prospector and grab it. This has created gangs all around the town, each looking out for themselves and their own. Adding to that, there’s plenty of spooky and creepy things roaming the desert that’d love to take a bite out of the human population, literally. Which gang will you back?
Alright, everyone. We’ve made it halfway through the week. With just a bit more work, we can make it once more to the weekend. I’m confident that we’ll be able to do it. But before then, we’ll need to refuel with some bite-sized gaming stories. Good thing that’s just what’s on the menu right now.
On today’s platter we have: Tricorn Games Looking for Flipped Off! Playtesters, New Kromlech Orc Mecha-Armours Bundles, Brand New Magic: The Gathering – Puzzle Quest Update (v1.6) Features Shadows Over Innistrad Card Set, Purgatory start design of their Youtube channel, Dark Art – Aug Releases – Ghouls, Undying Dynasties Indiegogo from Tabletop Miniature Solutions Funded, Vampire Hunters – Final Hours on Kickstarter, Avatars of War Releases The 9th Age posters & flyers, PolyHero Dice – Wizard Set Up On Kickstarter, Gangfight Games Moves Blackwater Gulch Kickstarter Launch Date, and Kromlech Heavy Duty Knife Now Available.
Well, yesterday slowed things down, but it seems to have picked back up again rather nicely. We now find ourselves halfway through Friday. That weekend will be here before we know it! What have you all got set up for the weekend? I’ve got a whole heap of chores to get done before Gen Con in a couple weeks (new shoes, haircut, etc), but still hope to get some gaming in afterward. I’m gonna need my strength. Better fill up on some bite-size gaming stories.
Today on the platter we have: Dragonfather Tokens available from Advanced Deployment, Oddzial Osmy’s 3mm July Releases Arrive at PicoArmor, Blackwater Gulch 2nd Edition Kickstarter Launches August 15th, The Animal Games Coming To Kickstarter August 2nd, and Short Fuse Designs Launches Tokens Kickstarter.
Gangfight Games is one of the many companies out at Origins this weekend. But you don’t have to be right at the show in order to see some of the cool things they’re working on. No, they’ve shown off some new preview artwork that I’m more than happy to share with you here.
So you’re out in the Wild West and you’ve got all sorts of werewolves, werecats, and even some werebears running around. What’re you going to do about it? Build yourself a Werecatcher, of course! At least, that’s what the people in Blackwater Gulch did, and now you can add it to your lists.
Gangfight Games is also showing off some new 3D renders.
Why are you talking like that?
Ok, Young Frankenstein references aside, if you want to get some Werewolves for your Blackwater Gulch games, you can now.
Awoooo! Werewolves of Blackwater Gulch. Awoooo!
Ok, so it doesn’t quite roll off the tongue as Werewolves of London, but waddyagonnado? If Gangfight had put Blackwater Gulch in London and not… well… Blackwater Gulch, it just wouldn’t be the same game, would it? Anyway, there’s a pair of new werewolves now available to pre-order for the game.
Well, Gangfight Games has bad news and good news about their recent Kickstarter campaign for the Savage Beasts expansion for Blackwater Gulch. The bad news is that the campaign didn’t fund (which is sad, as I really was hoping they’d make it to the bear stretch goal). However, the good news is that, during the campaign, their regular sales shot up and so they were able to afford creating the figures after all.
Welcome back TGN readers. It’s been quite a weekend for a lot of my friends, as they’re posting all sorts of fun pictures from Dragon*Con downtown. Meanwhile, I made pumpkin cheesecake snickerdoodle cookies, because I can.
Ladies, I’m available. *eyebrow wiggle*
But anyway, as for other bite-sized morsels, let’s take a look at some of the shorter stories we’ve collected over the past couple days.
In today’s batch we have: Hitech Miniatures Releases Standar Bearer Gothmor, Final Hours for Blackwater Gulch on Kickstarter, Iron Week 2015 – France’s first Warmachine and Hordes convention, The preorder campaign of Expo 1906 will start on Tuesday,
We’re just chugging right along in the week. We’ve already made it back here to Wednesday. Hopefully the week has been treating you well.
As for us here, we’ve got another batch of bite-sized stories for your enjoyment to nibble on.
This time around there’s: Iron Brigade New from All the King’s Men, Vurt RPG Updates their Stretch Goals, Final Week for Lobotomy On Kickstarter, Blackwater Gulch Kickstarter – Croatoan Deeper Look, Arena Rex Emissaries Wanted, Proxie Models Releases New Card Game Tokens, 15mm Command Decision infantry for sale, Denizens of Galaxy III released at 15mm.co.uk, and Dogmen of ruined Pudigrochumsberg coming for Flintloque.
Blackwater Gulch is a rather wild place. Our friends over in Britain might say it’s down right beastly. Well, at the conclusion of the Kickstarter that just launched, that will be literally the thing to say, as the campaign hopes to bring some new beasts to your tabletop.
Seems just about everyone is coming out with new editions of rulebooks this week. Or just new rules in general. Getting a new version put online for people to view is a popular activity. And Gangfight Games is getting into the act with an updated version of Blackwater Gulch.
Hey everyone. I hope your weekend is going well. My Saturday was spent with some good friends that I don’t get to see nearly enough, talking about glorious moments from games past, listening to some humorous gaming radio-plays, getting into wacky hijinks, and just generally being odd (while mostly listening to hair metal, because why not?).
As for today, it’s time to serve up some bite-sized stories to you.
In this batch we have:
Heer46 Indiegogo Kampagne 1943 Kharkov is online

Happy Wednesday, everyone! I hope the week has been treating you well. I’ve… actually been sick this week. Don’t worry, I’ve made sure to disinfect every post just before it goes up, so you shouldn’t catch anything.
Anyway, we’ve collected the various bite-sized stories that we’ve come across recently and present them to you now.
In this batch we have: Outer Limit Games announces Kickstarter launch date for TAU CETI: Planetary Crisis, LaserCutCard Updates and re-Releases New Art Deco Ruins Terrain, MidKnight Heroes Kcikstarter Reboot Coming Soon, Acheson Creations Releases Orc House, Mounted Heroes Kickstarter Launches, New Pwork Wargames Battle Mats Available, Play Blackwater Gulch at Origins, Final Days of Ramshackle Robots Kickstarter, New Brigade Models – 15mm Armoured Infantry, Sally 4th Releases Pub Interior Terrain Set, and New Furniture and Table Detail kits from Burn In Designs.
Gangfight Games gets into the spirit of Cinco De Mayo by offering 10% off their Bandidos Mexicanos starter set for Blackwater Gulch over in their webshop. They’ve also teamed up with Angry Mojo Games, who is giving discounts on their wood-cut terrain if you use the code “BLACKWATER” at checkout. Added to that, Gangfight Games is showing off renders of their Chupacabra Pack for the upcoming Savage Beasts Expansion. You can check those out below the cut.
From the announcement: Continue reading
Gangfight Games is looking to bring some new minis to the Blackwater Gulch line. They’ve got the playtest rules for their Savage Beasts expansion up on their website for you to check out. Give ’em a look-see and post your feedback. Hmm, that Werebear art seems familiar. *looks at my right arm* Oh yeah. Another Heath “BA” Foley masterpiece.
Anyway, they’ve got the rules up now and will be running a Kickstarter for the minis in a couple months.
From the announcement: Continue reading
It’s another Sunday. To those of you that celebrate it, Happy Easter. To the rest, I hope your Sunday is just as awesome as well.
I had my traditional hard boiled eggs and cold kielbasa this morning. It was just as tasty as always.
Speaking of tasty bites, we’ve got our also-traditional bite-sized stories we’ve collected over the past few days to present to you now.
This serving we’ve got: More editions of The Fiver from The Meeple Mechanic, Trash Bash Bits on Kickstarter, New Blackwater Gulch and Mechadrome Models Coming Soon, Valon Civilians released at Alternative Armies, Alliance Boarding Trooper Art Preview from Icarus Miniatures, Imaginary Empire Releases Wicked Lies & Alibis, Rebel Minis Releases 15mm Valonians, and New Historical Tables of Order and Equipment Available for April 2015 from TOEHub.
Gangfight Games is doing something you don’t see too often from a gaming company: reducing prices across the board for their miniatures. The reduction is part of the reason they cancelled their recent Kickstarter, as they didn’t want people pledging for the higher prices when that wasn’t really necessary.
They’ve also got the first 3D renders up for Vicious Beasts, a new expansion for Blackwater Gulch.
You can check out the new prices in the company’s webshop.
From the announcement: Continue reading
It’s another Sunday. Time for some more of the shorter, bite-sized stories that we’ve come across in the past couple days.
Also, yesterday during D&D, our party almost blew up the world (or at least an entire tropical island). Good times.
Anyway, for today we have: New Bad Lands Hero Previews and now EU Friendly shipping, DungeoNext terrain preview, new Fantasy releases from Scotia Grendel, Dark Sword Miniatures’ Stephanie Law Masterworks Miniature range now available, Trolka in resin releasing this month for Flintloque, New Sherman Tank Accessories from Warchimera, Lead Adventure Miniatures releases Steam-Punk Ladies and Robots, Planetary Militia preview at The Ion Age, new Leather Pouch added to Alternative Civil War Kickstarter, Brigade Models Release 2mm ACW Forts, and Capitan Miniatures re-launching the former Warmodelling Catalog.
Gangfight Games heads out West in their new board game, Bad Lands: Curse of the Skinwalker. You and the other players must work together to save Blackwater Gulch from a group of were-monsters (I’m guessing someone drank the black water. That stuff can’t be healthy). Just grab one of the pre-made characters, or you can even design your own.
All your friends snowed in (like they are in Chicago right now)? There’s solo-play rules as well.
The campaign runs until March 3rd.
From the campaign: Continue reading
Gangfight Games has previews to show off for their upcoming Bad Lands board game. You can check out some sweet Skinwalker art (some done by Heath “BA” Foley. One I liked so much, I had it permanently added to my arm), a look at the Loot cards, as well as download the preview rulebook.
From them to you: Continue reading
Gangfight Games has posted their Games Gazette #1 up online for your reading pleasure. In this inaugural issue, they talk about how happy they are to have Mechadrome already shipped to backers (a month ahead of schedule) and how all the models are now available over in their webshop. Along with that, they give us a look into Bad Lands, their cooperative board game set in the Blackwater Gulch universe. The game is a survival horror type, where you and your fellow players must make it past werewolves and chupacabras and other such fun beasties. They’ve got a preliminary website up for it that you can check out as well.
From the post: Continue reading

From the announcement:
Mechadrome is shipping!
I just received all of models from the Kickstarter campaign and I’ve been shipping out rewards to many of the backers. One thing we are still waiting on is the printed rulebook and it looks like that’s about 2 weeks away. As soon as the books come in the remainder of the rewards will go out 🙂
Gangfight Games has the window where you can get into their Mechadrome game at Kickstarter prices closing soon. Go on and jump through the window!

Don’t jump out the window. Just go join in over on Gangfight Games’ website.
From them to you:
Our Kickstarter campaign went very well, and our Pledge Manager has been online for the last few weeks. The Pledge Manager is open to all who would like to preorder our Mechs, but since we have to get our quantities over the manufacturer next week, ALL orders must be placed by August 31st if you would like to get in on our first production run and get your models along with all of the Kickstarter backers. The retail release for the game will not be until some time next year.

All products from the Kickstarter Campaign are available for anyone to pre-order in on the Pledge Manager store, until August 31. We’re expecting to ship everything in November.
Hopefully we’ll get the Terran Titans mechs all painted in the next week or so!
