Darkmook Paper Miniatures begin back catalogue upgrade

Blood, Brains and Bikers CD cover

Darkmook Paper Miniatures have begun upgrading their back catalogue of miniature sets with special rules, cards and tokens for the popular Survival Horror Tabletop Game system. The first sets receiving the upgrades are Survival Horror Set 2: Blood, Brains & Bikers and Survival Horror Set 6: Unstoppable.

Fey A new line of 54mm miniatures


Fey is a new range of 54mm scale miniatures and focuses on fantasy characters & creatures.

The first miniature that has been sculpted is the Celestial and is done by Christoph Eichhorn aka Trovarion and stands roughly 80mm tall. It is as good as finished but there might be some minor changes here and there.

''The Celestial is not of this world. He entered the Fey realms accompanied by meteoric storms and caused a big disturbance in the ebbs and flows of the currents of magic. He appears to be good in nature, or so it seems...!''

The original concept art for the Celestial was created by Pedro Ramos and has changed quite a bit since its original conception as you can see!

The Roots of Magic- an upcoming fantasy skirmish wargame

Roots of Magic

Currently in development from Grand Arcanum Games - the Roots of Magic, a fantasy miniatures skirmish game, with 5-8 models per side. Looking to crowd-fund in Q4, 2015.

The game is centred around the struggle for power in Mellorian, location of the fabled World Tree - a source of unlimited mystical energy. Six Great Houses of Magic strive to unlock the secrets of magic within the tree, to confound their rivals, and to forward agendas that will grant them ascendancy.

Each House wields a particular style of magic, known as a 'root', that provides players with different abilities and options for their game Companies. Players can choose from:

Acedia, House of Suggestion
Durant, House of Protection
Feylyn, House of Balance
Myrke, House of Fear
Qing, House of Mysteries
Travium, House of Power

The game mechanics are based around resource aggregation and allocation. Models gain variable amounts of actions they make take in a game round, and the more powerful a model is the more if can get. Players must make the choice to save these actions for when they are most needed, unleashing a massive surge of sorcerous power, or to spend a little each turn to achieve objectives.

We have a number of models already sculpted and currently being cast in high quality resin, but we are looking for backers to support the development of a larger range of miniatures to go with the game. Over the next few weeks, art, renders, background, and other information about the game will be revealed, ultimately leading to a crowdfunding project in q4 later this year.
