We’re just chugging right along in the week. We’ve already made it back here to Wednesday. Hopefully the week has been treating you well.
As for us here, we’ve got another batch of bite-sized stories for your enjoyment to nibble on.
This time around there’s: Iron Brigade New from All the King’s Men, Vurt RPG Updates their Stretch Goals, Final Week for Lobotomy On Kickstarter, Blackwater Gulch Kickstarter – Croatoan Deeper Look, Arena Rex Emissaries Wanted, Proxie Models Releases New Card Game Tokens, 15mm Command Decision infantry for sale, Denizens of Galaxy III released at 15mm.co.uk, and Dogmen of ruined Pudigrochumsberg coming for Flintloque.
You may have seen our brand new ACW Zouaves recently. Now they’re joined by the Federal Iron Brigade! Or more specifically, American Civil War troops in frock coats. They can be used for the Iron Brigade or any other frock-coated regiment from the war.
As a result of the excellent and thoughtful feedback we’ve received from our backers since the launch of our campaign, we’ve reworked our stretch goals to front-load additional adventures and books, and moved translation of the corebook closer to the 100k mark.
As you can see in the updated stretch goal chart below, we have two additional adventures at the 40k and 50k marks, and then the Vurt Crafting Companion at 60k. There’s another adventure at 70k (“Ghost Cats,” which rather obviously caters to the crucial ghost and cat demographics). At 80k we’ve got a 120-page sourcebook based in San Francisco. And the original corebook translations now come in at 90k, with an expansion of the corebook itself at 100k.
Lobotomy, horror board game raised over 240k $ and starts its final week on kickstarter. So far we managed to unlock 13 stretch goals with new monster miniatures, kickstarter exclusive characters, scenarios for the game, game tiles. Lobotomy and From the Deep expansion is now 15 Board Tiles, almost 400 Cards, 98 Miniatures (29 unique sculpts) and much more.
In today’s update we would like to tell you a little bit more about Croatoan, the leader of the Savage Beasts, and other Alpha Beasts.
Croatoan is a terrible Maneater and leader of the Savage Beasts of the Worm Woods, he has been credited with the destruction of colonies as far back as the Roanoke disaster. Now, his sites are set on Blackwater Gulch.
He carries a heavy Totem Staff into battle, and if he’s not smashing skulls with it, he’ll a make a Ferocious Swipe with his sharp claws, or perform a Lunging Strike that can reach enemies that might be out of his normal melee range.
As a Maneater, he always receives +1D6 to hit when attacking men in Infamous Gangs, and being an Alpha means any other Savage Beast in his Pack within 6″ of him also receive this bonus. He is truly a force to be reckoned with!
Maybe you want to create your own Beast Pack from scratch? Croatoan also comes with an extra right arm piece, so you can have the character model, or make your own. This is something we hope to do with all of our Alpha Beasts, we’d like to include optional arms or other optional bits so you have a couple of options for making your pack more unique.
We just launched our Kickstarter campaign and are over half-way funded! Please stop by for a visit and help us get our new faction up and running!

Plastic tokens for trading card games. Tokens come in a variety of colors as shown. Each token has 1/1 on one side and the back side has either 2/2 or 3/3. These tokens have the feel and sound of poker chips and make record keeping during your game very simple. Durable enough to carry about in your pocket, and generic enough to use for buffs or creature tokens for a variety of games. The tokens are also rectangular in shape so you can indicate which creatures are tapped very easily.
