Final Days for Guild Ball Mats on Indiegogo

GB Mats

Hey sports fans,

Once again we are staggered by the support for Guild Ball!

Our Gaming Mat project has been a massive success and will be going into production in 5 days time. We have even managed to reach the level where we can offer a second mat design to you guys.

This mat is unique as it has a 2'x2' markings within a 3'x3' mat - providing people a great surface for playing both full size Guild Ball games and the smaller 3v3 size starter games (recommended 2'x2' pitch).

See ya on the fields of glory!

Maelstrom's Edge Coming to Kickstarter Soon

Maelstrom's Edge is a next generation, squad based tabletop wargame set in a gritty science fiction universe of desperate survival. Players will be thrust into a fast, tactical game full of action and consequence, where every moment counts, and where there is always a way to change the game. No game is complete without a compelling setting, and we've worked hard to create a detailed and original universe for our players to explore, with deep science fiction worldbuilding and exciting, professionally written fiction.

The game will be launching on Kickstarter at the end of April, so be sure to sign up or follow us on facebook to be notified of when you can get your copy ordered

New Spray Varnish From The Army Painter

Our popular “Anti-Shine” Matt Varnish is getting a new friend: “Aegis Suit” Satin Varnish.

The new spray varnish will be the latest addition to the innovative range of Colour Primer sprays helping gamers get their armies painted fast...

The AEGIS SUIT Satin Varnish will protect any tabletop or role-playing miniature & model from the wear and tear of the battlefield. Unlike the ANTI-SHINE Matt Varnish developed for Quickshade, the AEGIS SUIT will leave a slight satin finish on your models and is ultra protective on any acrylic surface.

Protect the paint work you have painstakingly put into your models by using this high quality satin varnish: the AEGIS SUIT will not let you or your models down.
The AEGIS SUIT comes in a big 400ml spray can, leaving you plenty of spray for the whole army.

The Fiver with Paul Cosca on Designing Bill Shakespeare is Dead

Bill Shakespeare

Hi there! My name is Paul Cosca, and I run Brikenbrak Games. I’m live in Missoula, MT and it snowed here just over the weekend (in APRIL) so I’m not especially pleased about that. When I’m not designing games, I work customer service for an insurance company, which is exactly as exciting as it sounds.

In the past year and a half, I have completed working prototypes for five different games, and Bill Shakespeare is Dead is the first one I am bringing to market. Bill Shakespeare is Dead is a fast-paced party game for five or more players. It is PG-13 Cards Against Humanity meets Ad-Libsian acting meets Shakespearean shouting. It’s chaotic and our very scientific testing has shown that it’s a stupid amount of fun. But you don’t have to take my word for it. Check out the Kickstarter page, which has reviews, a print and play, and more!

The Fiver with Randy O’Connor on Designing Scoundrels


I’m Randy O’Connor, a video game artist and designer currently living in Berkeley, California! I am a full-time independent game developer, paying all my bills as a video game artist though I have experience with all aspects of video game development. It’s hard not to, when on teams of only a few people.
