We’re already 1/3 of the way through June, that means we’re close to halfway done with the year. Hard to think, right? Well, the autumn is coming, and with it will be a whole monster set of releases from Privateer Press. Yes, along with some Warmachine releases, September will bring the release of Monsterpocalypse back to gaming tables. In this preview, we get a look at some of what you can expect to hit store shelves that month.
Monsterpocalypse will be smashing its way back to tabletops this fall. Privateer Press has given us some insight into what we can expect, but they’ve got another little snippet to show off. In this preview, we get a look at a shot of the map, some tokens, the buildings, and the dice. Like the miniatures, everything is looking to get a bit of an upgrade in this new version.
The monsters are coming back to town this fall, as Privateer Press will be rebooting their Monsterpocalypse tabletop miniatures game. They’ve posted up a new preview, giving us a look at a couple of renders, as well as an updated TerraKhan figure.
I remember one of my first Gen Cons was the one where Monsterpocalypse was released. Man, that thing sold like gangbusters. People were buying multiple cases at a time, wanting to build up their armies. Then, well… it died away. But like any good monster, you can’t keep it down forever. Privateer Press has announced that the game will be coming back this fall.
