Hello, beautiful readers, and welcome to another Sunday. Here at the bear cave, I’m doing a bit of cleaning and then I’ve got some Gen Con prep to work on. Yeah, the show is getting ever-closer. It’ll be here before you know it. Just one more weekend after this before it’s here. Will you be coming to the show? If so, lemme know. Maybe we can talk gaming (one of my favorite activities).
But that’s for a couple weeks from now. At the moment, we’ve got some bite-sized stories to share.
In this batch we have: CROM: Conan Rise of Monsters has a teaser trailer for their Kickstarter launch, Gods and Monsters posts Kickstarter Video, A couple more installments of The Fiver from The Meeple Mechanic, Dead Earth Games Posts The Shattered Crown Gameplay Video, and DGS Games announces Freeblades Kickstarter stretch goals and future Demon Faction.
Cabinet Holdings has acquired Paradox Entertainment Inc. This new acquisition includes all of Paradox’s holdings, meaning all the rights for things associated with Robert E. Howard’s Conan world and characters is now Cabinet’s. In the past year, we’ve had a lot of announcements about new Conan games. Modiphius has their RPG. Monolith has their successfully Kickstarted board game. And Pulposaurus is working on the fantasy miniatures game Rise of the Monsters. TGN has contacted these companies for their remarks on the change of hands and if it will affect any of their production schedules.
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.
Pulpasaurus Entertainment has announced that they’re working on a new miniatures mass-combat game based on Robert E. Howard’s Conan setting. Conan: Rise of Monsters (or CROM for short. See what they did there?) will be played using 28mm pre-painted plastic miniatures. Starter sets will come with two armies, as well as all the dice, templates, tokens, and accessories one needs to play the game.
The Kickstarter will be sometime in Q3 this year, with a release Q1 of 2016.
