Black Knight Games back online

Black Knight Games have finished work on their new site and are back online.

From their announcement:
Finally, after almost two weeks, BKG has deployed the new Web site! The new site is completely different. Instead of taking visitors directly to the store, I decided to create more of an online magazine look and feel. I hope that folks will find this new layout to their liking.

With the new layout, there will be a whole bunch of new features. You will have to visit the site to see what is afoot, but I think it’s pretty cool.

The store is up again as well. I will be adding products to it over the next few days. Mostly the classic minis and the cheap bases. The new Verminion and the classic chariot are already on. One of the really cool things about the new store is that it is now set up for digital products. This means that when Fantasy Legend II is published we will be able to sell the pdf files without going through a clearing house.

The forum has been up for most of the down time.

Thanks to all of you who offered your support during our down time. That was about the LAST thing I needed. Oh well, we made a little lemonade anyway. :)

Now I can get back to finishing the rules.

Chapterhouse Studios release Super-Heavy Walker

Chapterhouse Studios have released a resin Super-Heavy Walker kit for use with 40K. Super-Heavy vehicle kit From their announcement:
Let me unveil our first Super-Heavy vehicle kit, the SXV-141 Super-heavy Assault Walker, or the SAW for short. (I am leaning towards calling this big boy the "Kraken" to keep up the ocean theme of Tau) After seeing the work of the guy who designed and sculpted this walker I knew we had to carry it. We were even able to drop the production cost of this huge kit. Price is set at $285 plus shipping. It is a completely new design, but it has an obvious "Tau" style to it. This is a resin model kit consisting of over 50 parts, weighing in at approximately 2kg and standing almost 30cm tall when complete. The kit components are supplied "as cast" and require cleanup, assembly and painting for the finished product. Needless to say I think the Imperial Warhound titan will have its hands full. This monster mounts Twin Heavy Rail Guns, Smart Missile launchers, Marker Lights and Burst Cannons for close defense. We are working on rules for this bad boy and welcome any thoughts. You won't find this on the website yet, feel free to email me on order inquiries, and due to its large size it will be produced on order.

Aventine finish Republican Roman Heavy infantry

Aventine Miniatures have released the last of their 28mm Heavy infantry figures for their Republican Roman range of figures. Triarii ready From their announcement:
We have now finished the Advancing mail armoured Principes and can now offer the Republican Roman Army deal. This has been based on the FOG Mid. Republican Roman list. It has 56 figures that would normally sell at £58 but are only £50. They also go towards the banded discounts within the shop meaning that if you buy two army deals and one other pack to bring the total to over £100 a further 12.5% is deducted at the checkout. Thus each deal would be £43.75 for 56 figures. We are almost finished with the Principes (there are 72 different figures in mail), the bronze armoured Principes figures will appear soon along with stationary Hastati. Next up will be the Tarentine cavalry, the Roman Heavy cavalry and "Generals".

Former GW designer Alessio Cavatore makes an appearance on Podhammer to chat about his time at GW and his new project Shurro From the Podhammer site: "There have been many highlights in Podhammer's 3 year history. This episode may be at the top of the list. I am pleased to present episode 67, an interview with famous (or is that infamous?) games designer Alessio Cavatore. If you don’t know who this is, flip to the front of just about every Warhammer/40k/LOTR book written in the last 10 years. Many of them will have his name written there. Alessio Cavatore has shaped the face of our game for the last decade. He took the time to chat with us about his time with GW and what he is currently working on. Kendall and I sound like absolute fanbois who are too nervous to put a complete sentence together, but it was still an incredible experience and I hope you enjoy listening as much as we did making it. Make sure you check out Alessio’s current project Shurro at River Horse"

Immortal Miniatures update

Immortal Miniatures have sent along details of some upcoming new releases as well as updates to their existing ranges of figures. From their announcement:
I’ve just sent me next set of plastic figures off to tooling, with the next one to follow this month. The great thing about plastic figures is it allows you to make figures in metal that normally would not be so viable financially. Im hoping to add 2 brand new ranges this year and anther two that can be used to either expand some of my existing ones or create entirely new armies. The plan with immortal miniatures is to create a solid ‘time line’ of armies, so you always have opponents and ally’s for each of the ranges.
