Graven Games takes a look at some of the field artillery pieces from Kromlech in this new review article.

From the post:

It’s time to bring out a couple of big guns from Kromlech in today’s review. We’re building the Orc Field Cannon, the Orc Howitzer, and also some Goblin Artillery Crew to go with them. These kits fit nicely into the WW2 Orc theme that Kromlech produces a lot of miniatures for, but we also think they’ll make great alternative models in a Warhammer 40k Ork army (as Mek Gunz with Gretchin Crew), or in another post-apocalyptic setting.

From the announcement:

In conjunction with the move to the new venue, development has begun behind the scenes as we prepare to kick AdeptiCon 2015 planning into full gear. One of the more significant changes in the coming year will be regarding how we handle demos, event games and smaller tournaments. In the past, space restrictions forced us to micromanage these events so that they all fit within the hotel and made sense with regards to the schedule. We will no longer have this problem at the Renaissance Schaumburg Convention Center…we have the space…and we need more games! We are looking for a few good game masters to run demos, historical events, specialty games, board games, and anything else that makes sense!
