While the world might be warming up now, there's always a chance, far into the future, that we might hit another ice age. At least, that's what's happening in D.E.I. - Divide et Impera, a new strategy board game from Ludus Magnus Studio that's up on Kickstarter now. Resources are scarce and it's up to you to collect the rest of it for your survivor faction.

Research. As a former grad student, I know all about it. Going around and trying to find information about your topic can be rough, especially if your topic is the strange and dangerous creatures that inhabit dungeons. In Dungeonology: The Expedition, players take on the role of professorial candidates who must find out about their research topic of choice while staying undercover in a dark dungeon. In the end, only one will get the info needed for their thesis and be promoted.
Today on the platter we have: Brigade Models Release Updated Japanese Aeronef, Black Earth 28mm tabletop wargame launches on IndieGoGo in February, Purgatory is entering the final 2 weeks of Pledge Manager, Krakon Games Kickstart their Scum & Smuggler characters, Latest Releases Available From Dark Sword Miniatures, New Legionary Releases From Kromlech, Ludus Magnus Studio Announces Sine Tempore Board Game, Tabletop Tyrant Miniatures Cases Up On Kickstarter, New Releases Available From Victoria Miniatures, Khurasan releases 15mm T-64BV Tank, and Hardwood deck boxes with Illuminated artwork on Kickstarter.

As always we are careful to your tips so we decided to reboot the project on way.

They've also got some preview renders up they'd like your opinion on.
From the campaign:
We are happy to show you two new WIP.
Are two miniatures on which our sculptors are working.
Soon the finished models.
From the campaign:
Nova Aetas is a tabletop miniature wargame set in an alternative Italian Renaissance.
Inspired by the classic japan tactical RPG (such as Final Fantasy Tactics and Tactics Ogre), in Nova Aetas tough you will fight battles against enemies overseen by a sophisticated artificial intelligence. Every challenge will get you in front of choices that can change the course of events. To guarantee a more more engaging game experience, we opted for high quality materials and the use of highly detailed miniatures.
From the preview:
We are proud to presents the semi-final version of Vesuvio's Forge cover!
Vesuvio's Forge will be the first Excluvie Expansion for Nova Aetas only available during our KS Campaign!!
The KS Campaign start on 20/11/2014 at 6:00 PM EST
From the preview:
Hello everyone! The work on the graphic part of Nova Aetas proceeds intensely and today we are happy to show you the study we are doing on tokens of the game. We discussed a lot about the role that the tokens will have in the game and on their functioning, in particular with regard the negative and positive status. The outcome of the discussions was the division into 3 categories immediately distinguishable from their frames: wounds (beige frame), negative status (dark red frame) and positive status (blue frame). We think that this division in colors will allow you to more easily identify the right tokens during the game. When we will complete the work on status, there will be no less than 20 different tokens! yes ... we love tokens!
As usual we wait for yours feedback!
