15mm product review vidcast

The Gruntz website has a new vidcast looking at some recently released 15mm sci-fi figures. From their website:
In this news update I feature myself on camera, which is both disturbing and bloody difficult to film naturally. 20 takes later and I was able to say "Kaamados Dominion - Dragamaa Heavy". It is another un-boxing overview video with a mix of Critical Mass Games models and Khurasan. The featured new item is the Chewk Drill Tank which I have filmed in its unpainted state. Along with a couple of the little Chewks, which are nice tiny aliens. I also picture the Kier and King bases which are perfect for small artillery or vehicle bases, if you want a urban or rural look.

Unseen Lerker issue 6 released

Issue 6 of Unseen Lerker magazine is now available. From their website:
Well, it’s that time again. The premier independent fantasy gaming magazine continues its run of ambling shenanigans and outrageous fashion advice (seal fur is soooo in this season) with its October—November edition.  Still at 56 pages of full-colour, eye-melting goodness, the latest issue contains:  Wayne’s World: a brand new series of hobby articles written by Wayne Kemp of Heelanhammer podcasting fame. This issue he provides his unique take on building a Rat Ogre Bonebreaker from an all manner of bits and pieces, using a plastic River Troll as a basis. A Legend Never Dies: it may sound like the title for a James Bond film, but it’s actually a coverage of the recently held Giant Fanatic tournament, wonderfully written by our Danish agent in the field, Jimmi Stender. GF is one of the premier events in Europe and Jimmi gives us all the hot gossip on what went down, who did what, and what colour the carpet was (just kidding – there was no carpet). Also included is an interview with one of the organisers, a familiar face, about the merits of a newly conceived Line of Sight system that was used.

Dead Walk Again rules revised

The Dead Walk Again horror rules have been updated and revised. From their announcement:
We are glad to post the most recent version of Dead walk Again rules. Thanks to Patrick Weaver’s work (our new zombie slave) the translated rules now have lots of typos corrected and grammar bugs have been hunted and removed (maybe a future game...). Some rules have been rewritten to help clarify game play and a few new things added as well. All in all, we can now offer a rules system that reads much more smoothly in English. (not like the Viking-Froggy-Babblefish translated one from before) We hope you will enjoy this new version and you can now download it on our Yahoo group. Our L4D supplement is currently being corrected and the new version will be uploaded soon. Plus, keep a look out for new DwA material to be posted soon. We'll get the news out as soon as we can!
