Kromlech releases new Orc Spitfire Assault Speeder

Kromlech shows how wacky orcs can be with the release of their new Spitfire Assault Speeder.



From the release:

Hey guys,

The late spring is finally here (well, in Poland at least), so time to dust off your shades and roll out with style. The louder and more ostenatious, the better.
Check out this green git chilling his elbow and making sure that if by any chance someone does not hear the engine of his plane, they will notice the bang of the mortar shell exploding on their head.

We are happy to announce the release of our third orcish vehicle kit- the "Spitfire" Assault Speeder.

Attica Games has 2 more releases available over on their website.

Attica Games’ second ‘Plastic Population’ release delivers Sparks and Weldy from Professor Polyphemus’ Population Printer.

“Sparks”, the Plastic Population Technician is one of Polyphemus’ sharper tools, but none the less dangerous for it.

“Weldy”, a female PlasPop Technician demonstrates that the Professor is no chauvinist – his casual disregard for his creations’ welfare is without gender distinction!

Or get the Repair Scare - one each of the Male and Female PlasPop Technicians. Handy.

10 days left for Twin Tin Robots from Flatlined Games on Kickstarter

Flatlined Games has a little more than a week left on their Kickstarter campaign to fun Twin Tin Robots and they're almost to their funding goal.



From the update:

What's somewhat ironic here is that this campaign is running parallel to a french language campaign on Ulule, which is now at 120% funded (€6.005 with a goal of €5.000). I count the funds levvied in both campaigns to calculate stretch goals, so as soon as this campaign is funded on Kickstarter ($15k), the european campaign's €6.000 ($7.800) will be accounted for when calculating the stretch goals. This means that when we pass the $15.000 mark, the $20.000 stretch goal will be reached instantly! (and maybe more, who knows ?)

Blackball Games ships out AE-WWII to Kickstarter backers

Blackball Games has shipped out their Kickstarter orders for AE-WWII.
Personally, these are my favorite sort of Kickstarter news story.



From the announcement:

Hey guys, just a quick update. The majority of the domestic rewards have been shipped today. The remaining domestic and all international rewards will ship tomorrow. Please drop us an email if there are any problems with your rewards or even just to let us know what you think of the books.

Included in many rewards are 'War Bonds' for the models we weren't able to include in your shipment. We again apologize for the delay, but as soon as we get these models in, they will be shipped to you at no charge. There's no need to return the War Bonds to us; we thought they'd be something to remind you we owe you big.

Thanks a lot for your patience, we look forward to hearing your thoughts about the new book and the new edition of AE-WWII!
