From their announcement:
Crooked Dice Game Design Studio opens it’s virtual doors today at www.crooked-dice.co.uk
Crooked Dice is a new company from the evil geniuses behind the Doctor Who Miniatures Game (DWMG), specialising in wargames miniatures and rules for the golden age of cult TV.
Release the action:engine
All our games use the D6 action:engine. Simply that’s a snazzy name for Crooked Dice’s rules system. If you’ve played the DWMG, then you’ll be familiar with the core system. But the updated action:engine has a number of new features including the ability to build characters and squads for the first time.
DWMG – wargaming in time and space
The Doctor Who Miniatures Game (DWMG) is already available free from its own website – www.drwhominiatures.co.uk – with dozens of extra pages of PDFs available to suit your classic or new Who tastes. Watch out for a special release this weekend to celebrate the launch of the new series.
7TV – Inch-High Spy-Fi
On sale in late 2010 comes 7TV, a new 28mm skirmish ruleset inspired by the cult action TV shows of the 1960s and 70s. In 7TV, you can recreate all your favourite cult TV shows on the tabletop. Choose to play a squad led by a suave agent or a flamboyant scientific genius or even a troupe of daredevil fighting girls. Or play as an evil mastermind with despicable henchmen or as an otherworldly menace from beyond the veil.
And miniatures too
28mm miniatures suitable for both the DWMG and 7TV are also available to pre-order from the website today. First to come is investigative academic Tweedy Mattison and his trusty WPC sidekick May Killan both sculpted by Kev White of Hasslefree. Both will do well in games set in any modern(ish) period and are planned for release in May/June subject to casting schedules.
