Secret Weapon Miniatures shows off their March releases

Secret Weapon Miniatures gives us a look at their March releases, including this kick-ass Gothic Generator. Why play on a boring table?

The announcement's not a secret, even if the company is...

As today is 29-February we have decided that it doesn't officially count as February anymore, since everyone knows that there are only 28 days in February, and so we've launched the March releases!

This includes a whole host of hotly anticipated new products:

Gothic Terrain: Power Generator
Masterclass Scenics: Fallen Leaves - Brown
Masterclass Scenics: Leaf Litter - Light Green
Masterclass Scenics: Leaf Litter - Dark Green Green

It also includes SIX new 95x120mm beveled edge bases so that all of our
current themes now have a flight base -- and the new round lip theme
"Cobblestone" for our Warmachine, Hordes, and Malifaux players out there.

Deep Wars gives us an overview of their Dark Mariner starter

Deep Wars shows off a new piece of concept art and gives us some info on their Dark Mariner starter. Damn this game looks like it's going to be cool.

Blubblubblub... That's fish for, "Here's what they say about it":

The Dark Mariners are descendents from the original kingdoms of the Ancients, but have become corrupted and degraded by generations of genetic experimentation with foul creatures of the deep. They still use some of the technology of their elders but only a few of their leaders, those retaining some of the original bloodline, can fully recall the secrets of the ethers. Dark Mariner forces are a mixture of mutated shock troops, stealthy biomechs and vile cephalid telepaths and scientists. These fully aquatic beings have suits designed for protection underwater and amphibious assaults on land or in pressurized submersibles. They are lightly armored, but fast moving and deadly when in close quarters.

Battle Blokx: a new project on Kickstarter

Battle Blokx is a new project on Kickstarter! Go help them out!

Looks interesting:

Hey folks,

BATTLE BLOKX, is pleased to announce the launch of its Kickstarter project. For the past few months we have been working diligently to develop what may be the first building block style war-gaming terrain ever.

We designed them with 28mm gamers in mind, each BLOK is approximately 90mm square, with an average height of 32mm. The BATTLE BLOKX system is based around the BASIK BLOK which features a top lug, and a 30mm wide step detail that creates a “ladder” when stacked. All BATTLE BLOKX are supplied unpainted and easily accept glue so you can use them as a blank canvas for your own gaming masterpiece. Or you can simply prime them grey and start playing.

If you like what you have read so far, check out our Kickstarter Project and backer rewards. Thanks and I hope to see you across the table someday.

AlienDungeon has new Frightmare terrain pieces

AlienDungeon, an offshoot of Architects of War, has new Frightmare terrain pieces. Go check 'em out!

Not just your average trees and rocks:

Architects of War is now 18 months old and we have enjoyed every minute of it. We endeavor to bring you the best 28mm historical miniatures available combined with our own terrain and accessory kits. We are very grateful to the response we have received from our many customers, both hobbyist and Trade accounts. Support from our trading partners Perry Miniatures, Gripping Beast, Renedra, and Warlord Games has been extraordinary and we hope to keep serving all of you for years to come.

However, it’s time we split like some weird Amoeba monster so we can pursue some other things.

We are establishing a brother company to Architects of War called AlienDungeon. This new company will allow us through a separate web site to release and retail products in the Adventure, Sci-Fi and Fantasy market where we hope to make lots of new friends.

We are off to a running start by introducing our new Frightmares line of Fantasy terrain and Pan Galactic Geographic*, a range of HARD Sci-Fi terrain, miniatures and vehicles. And since we are delving into the Sci-Fi/Fantasy market, the Woodbine Design Science Fiction Range is now being stocked by us. And last but certainly not least, we will be carrying the complete collection of “dungeoneering” figures from Otherworld Miniatures. The Otherworld Miniatures sculpts are fantastically sculpted, modern takes on classic designs. We are very excited to be able to offer all of these items for sale at Cold Wars and our web store soon after.
