Free Unoffical Badmashes mob flags

Grimsby Wargames Society, the Saints of Caffeine Hands, has some more free banners available to download from their website.



Source

From the post:

As the title says its unoffical, even though the Badmashes carried flags nobody really took much notice of what they carried, proberly green and black flags plain or with solgans ect.
From a wargamers point i thought i will let my imagination take over and come up with more flamboyant flags for my mobs so i created 10 flags in total, these might not stay on the table very long but at least they carried a nice looking flag, they are free for all to download with many more flags on the website.

A4 sheet of the 10 flags on the website to download and print out.

Micropanzer to do vouchers instead of Kickstarter

Micropanzer knows some of you gamers are feeling the Kickstarter burnout. So instead of going that route, they'll be doing vouchers instead.



Source

From the announcement:

We am working on getting back up and running full speed ahead – we have so many new codes to put into production and a set amount on hand to get started . 2013 was basically a development year and am very happy with new items.

We have done the math for a kickstarter and while it does seem very appealing at first what we don’t like is that 10% or so goes to the kickstarter/Amazon people – not a huge deal for what they can help you do but we would rather pass the 10% on to the end customer to save . So from now until April 31st we will be doing my own fund raising in the form of voucher pledges – We have the last master mold being made and once they are in hand and cleaned will pull trigger on production mold - a number of production molds are all ready being worked on – so this will happen regardless of people buying vouchers –We am hoping the voucher program allows us to do it faster in one go verses over the course of the next 6 months – Plus it give you the customer a nice discount.

Deniable: A hilarious new Spy story game

Storyweaver released Deniable, their new Spy story game that's free to download from their website.



Source

From the release:

Want a laugh? StoryWeaver has just released the pre-print beta of a story game about unwitting spies tempted by easy money. It's heavily inspired by British TV series, like SPY or Minder, or the gritty 80's thrillers like "The professionals".

Deniable is an unusual game in that it focuses on the struggles the characters have in balancing their personal and secret lives. Which ends up with terribly funny situations (think, A Fish Called Wanda). Players have to balance their characters' Stress and Cred. Too much Stress, or too little Cred, and it's lights out! One big difference mechanically is that players need not form a 'party' but are always involved in every scene by formally taking on roles of 'NPCs' (we call 'em extras).

It's highly entertaining and perfect for small gaming groups.

StoryWeaver loves feedback, so please feel free to let them know what works and what doesn't.

"Of all the mercenaries employed by the sultanates of southern India, Naja Bhoot, the Serpent Ghost, is the most relentless. A man shrouded in mystery, Bhoot was imprisoned on genocide charges but escaped to Bijapur. While wreaking havoc throughout that region, Bhoot caught the steely eye of the COIL. Bhoot's propensity for coordinating lightning terror strikes with religious indoctrination made him a perfect candidate for executing COIL / Beng-Arii Syndicate operations in the area, a role he eagerly fulfills.

The Social Event of the Season

Source

From the announcement:

Fantasy Flight Games is pleased to announce The Last Banquet, an epic, large-group game for six to twenty-five players!

In The Last Banquet, each player takes on the role of a member of the Royal Court, from the King himself, to the friendly bard, the alluring witch, or the wise seneschal. Acting out their respective roles, players must use the actions allowed to them to try and accomplish their teams' agendas. However, you’ll need to be judicious in your actions, for the King is watching closely for signs of disloyalty–and not everyone at the banquet table is on your side.
