Polyversal After Action Report from Williamsburg Muster

Polyversal in action at Williamsburg Muster

Update 7 has been posted on the Polyversal Kickstarter. Update 7 posts several photos from running 4 games of Polyversal at the Williamsburg Muster convention in Williamsburg, VA. All players were brand new to the system, picked the rules right up, and had a good time. Collins Epic Wargames is working on a video that captures their raw first impressions of the game that will be posted later this week.

In addition, Update 7 adds 3 models to the basic boxed game contents- Typhark Tanks from Plasmablast Games.

Finally, Update 7 removes Milestone Rewards and describes why they got the axe.

Guadalcanal Battle Set Released by Topside Minis


The Guadalcanal battle set includes 145 units (109 surface ships and 36 aircraft) and lets you recreate four complete WWII naval battles of the 1942 Guadalcanal campaign. They are as follows:

Savo Island
Cape Esperance
1st Battle of Guadalcanal
2nd Battle of Guadalcanal

Of the 145 units, 61 units are new ships. The others are already existing ships from our inventory. We have included the planes that were specific to the naval battles in this set. In the very near future we will be releasing an add-on set of both Japanese and American ships and planes that will fill out the Pacific Theater Fleet. There will be many more Japanese aircraft and carriers. We will also have several American and Japanese destroyer escorts, American PT boats and many escort carriers.

Next up however is the Battle Off Samar set featuring Taffy 3 and it's epic battle against the Japanese Fleet. This will be quickly followed by our Pearl Harbor set that will include most of the ships in the Harbor at the time of the attack. We will publish those OOB shortly.

New Sturmgewehr soldiers from Iron Cross Miniatures


Dear Wargamers

this time we are happy to present to you our troopers with Sturmgewehr 44 assault rifles. These will give you the option to replace men with Karabiner 98k in your squads. The weapon was planned as "MP 43" (for Maschinenpistole or machine pistol) but was renamed "Sturmgewehr" (assault rifle) for propaganda purposes. The Sturmgewehr was perceived as versatile and effective in combat. Yet, late war production problems did not allow to equip the German infantry formations completely.

The three figures bear a Sturmgewehr each. While the first shooter is firing from a firm standing position, the second man is reloading. He has already stuffed the empty magazine in his webbing as he opens a pocket to grab a new one. The third trooper is sprinting to reach cover. To not hinder movement he holds the weapon in one hand as German regulations dictated.

The three figures will be available for 7,90 € on our web shop in a few weeks.

Best regards and until next week
