Hell Rangers Coming to Kickstarter Soon

Introducing Hell Rangers
Hell Rangers is a cooperative 32mm miniature board game for 1-5 players. In the game you assume the role of the Rangers, a paramilitary military force tasked with defending the citizens of Mars from the monstrous Zaghast that live deep under the planet’s surface. It is similar in vein to properties like Doom or Aliens.

Today we have a large 3d gallery preview of the Rangers themselves and their enemies the Zaghast.
More previews and videos will be coming showcasing all the games features.

Hell Rangers will be coming out later this year, looking to Kickstart sometime.

If any publishers are interested in Order Fulfillment/Publishing/Distribution please feel free to contact me, I am open to suggestions.

Vampire Hunters launches on Kickstarter in less than a week

Vampire Hunters

Vampire Hunters, from Dark Gate games, is a fully co-operative miniatures-based board game for 1-4 players. Bring the dark imagery of Vampire lore from the classic stories in movies and books to your table top, as you take on the role of a newly recruited Vampire Hunter. Thrown into the Vampire den with a small band of comrades, you use stakes, crossbows and holy water to destroy the creatures of the Night. Craft makeshift weapons on the fly for more destructive power! Tear down window coverings to burn Vampires with Sunlight! Drag screaming Vampires outside the den with the Extractor! Team up to make combination attacks! Stay focused on your mission to power special abilities!

But watch the clock: at sundown, you become the prey!

Optional game modes add to replayability. Play standalone games or follow the full campaign, upgrade your weapons, equipment and special skills as you advance in the Order. Play semi-coop to rate your skills, giving bragging rights to the best Hunter. You can even play on as a Vampire, if your Hunter gets turned. Make Vampire Hunters the experience you want it to be!

Vampire Hunters will feature highly detailed plastic miniatures, beautiful double-sided map tiles, 300 tokens, cards and dice, as well as full color scenario and rule books.

Visit us on Facebook and Twitter for more information about Vampire Hunters.
