Song of Blades and Heroes

Many of you are familiar with Ganesha Games' Advanced Song of Blades and Heroes set of miniatures rules. I can think of a couple of games that use it as the basis for their rules sets. Well, this time they're making a game for their own. Axe and Brimstone is a new set of 28mm miniatures, as well as a narrative campaign. It's up on Kickstarter now.
The Ganesha Games Kickstarter for their Song of Blades: Hammer and Forge dwarves sets just keeps on rolling along. They are closing in on 3x funded with still 16 days to go. They've unlocked several new sculpts, letting backers add-on even more to their pledge.
Ganesha Games has just launched a Kickstarter campaign for their Song of Blades and Heroes miniatures skirmish system's new supplement, Hammer and Forge. More than just a new set of rules, they're also looking to fund a set of miniatures, particularly of the various dwarven cultures that have been part of the Song of Blades rules set. Of course, if you have dwarves, you need someone for the dwarves to fight, so they'll be included, too.
Ganesha Games will be looking to add Fightin' Fungi to their catalog and they'll be looking to Kickstarter in order to make it happen. The figures could also be used in any fantasy setting game where malignant mold might mangle and murder. The game they hope to fund will be stand-alone, but be fully compatible with the Song of Blades and Heroes as well. However, there will be updated spell rules, as well as new rules for armors and weapons.
