Mars. The Red Planet. Here in the real world, we're hoping to maybe send someone there in the next 20 years. But in the world of Space 1889, people have been going there for a while. So, while it might be a while before you, yourself get there, you can vicariously go there now with the new Space 1889: Mars supplement, now available from Modiphius.
There's been... *puts on monocle* a murder! That's not really a spoiler, since it's right in the title of the new adventure that's been released for Space 1889 from Modiphius. It's the Murder on the Ether Express, and it's available in print and pdf versions now.
While "space" might be in the name of Space 1889, that doesn't necessarily mean "outer space." It can also refer to "inner space." Though, in this case, we don't mean my stomach. But, instead, to the space within the Earth itself. In City at the Center of the Earth, players head deep into the Earth's crust, to see what sort of strange creatures and plants inhabit the land down under (not Australia).

Somehow I forgot to post this last week- the second Space 1889 miniature! There will be one change to him as his rifle barrel is a little thin for its length, but otherwise he is ready to go!
From the update:
Thanks to you all we have just passed our second Stretch Goal - an all-new 32 page adventure called “Thunders of Venus” which is being penned by Steve Long.
This not only unlocks the adventure, which is going to be given free in PDF to every pledger for the Digital Rulebook Plus and the Rulebook Plus onwards, but also means our first new print Add-On is also unlocked… “Double Adventure Book 1” featuring both “The Order of the Invisible Eye” by John Wick and “Thunders of Venus” by Steve Long.
In addition to this we can also announce that the adventures that are being unlocked in this Kickstarter are *also* going to be available as Savage Worlds editions, supporting Pinnacle Entertainment’s “Space 1889: Red Sands” setting they release back in 2010.
From the campaign:
RAFM Miniatures has been producing Space: 1889 Miniatures since the game's inception in 1988. The line has met with critical success but needs to undergo major improvement to bring it up to current standards. Due to the success of Victorian Science fiction and the Steam Punk genre we have anticipated a growing demand for new miniatures in this line. Contributors will be able to help guide the expansion of this line to provide gamers with a true piece of science fiction history.
Last week I attended Historicon in Valley Forge, PA. Rod Campbell of Highlander Studios was unable to attend due to illness in the family, but he sent me some master figures for approval and just sent pictures of some painted miniatures. I like them a lot, and I'm used to looking at 25mm figures instead of 15s.
