The Phalanx Consortium

When it comes to skirmish miniatures games, there's a bunch of sci-fi ones. There's fewer, but still a decent number of fantasy ones as well. But if you're looking for modern military, it's a little harder to find. Well, Dishdash Games is helping out with their Ultracombat game. You can check it out on Kickstarter now.

Hello there, Thursday. How's things? That's good to hear. You know, it's almost time for the weekend. I know, you feel sad because you're always almost to the weekend, but never there, yourself. That's gotta be rough. But hey, at least you get to help people make their gaming tables look better. That's gotta count for something, right!? Right! Good now, let's get on with it.

In today's Terrain Corner we have: New Modern Food Trucks and Cargo Vans from Burn In Designs, Final Week for Neo Tyrannis Kickstarter, Nine New Fantasy-Football Playmats Available From Deep-Cut Studio, West Land: Pwork Wargames Fantasy Gaming Mat Now Available, and Wizard Kraft Modular River Terrain Up On Kickstarter.

I have to admit, I was really kinda hoping today was going to be Friday when I woke up. Not that there's anything inherently wrong with Thursday. It's just that... well... it's not Friday, is it? It'll be ok, though. We'll get to Friday soon enough (that's not soon enough!). Before we get there, we've gotta finish today, though. That includes making your gaming tables look as good as possible.

In today's Terrain Corner we have: Pwork Wargames Fantasy Gaming Mat Now Available, The Phalanx Consortium Running Neo Tyrannis Cityscapes Kickstarter, and Deep-Cut Studio Releases Limited Edition Bubble Nebula Gaming Mat.

With the zombie apocalypse, there's bound to be those that haven't yet been eaten or infected. There wouldn't be much of a story otherwise. You'd just have zombies milling around going, "braaaaaaains." Not exactly engaging for a story, film, or game. So, it's with that in mind that The Phalanx Consortium and Radio Dishdash are running a Kickstarter campaign for some Skirmish Outbreak survivor minis.
Well, my real name is Jason, after all... *whistles innocently while hiding machete behind back*

The Phalanx Consortium is a new company that's going to be making minis accessories. Their inaugural Kickstarter is planned to start soon.

From them to you:

The Phalanx Consortium, in association with our exclusive distribution partner, Pico Armor, is proud to announce our new miniature wargaming accessories company established to "Create Worlds in Context". In preparation for our first Kickstarter we wanted to take this time to introduce ourselves and the subject of our first major project. We are planning on launching our Kickstarter to coincide with Historicon 2013, which will take place 18th-21st of July in Fredericksburg, Virginia. We intend to have initial product greens and additional promotional information available for review at the Pico Armor booth in the Historicon Dealer Room throughout the weekend.

The purpose of this upcoming Kickstarter is to seek support for the first in a planned series of buildings and structures from different parts of the world and historical periods. The objective of this line is to produce high quality models in all the major scales from 3 to 28mm and to produce them in such a way that they will relate to each other in the context of their surroundings. Meaning that through a modular system of buildings, infrastructure and organics a seamless miniature world can be created on your tabletop.
Future updates will include images and details regarding the planned products. Our first destination will be Italy, circa the 16th through 20th Centuries.

Thank you for your interest and support.
