The world of Cold Start is a study in humanity, sociology, techno-dependence and the power of misinformation. Dive into political intrigue, hunt down wanted criminals, and resist corruption by dark forces in this sci-fi thriller.

Jet Bike Construction Kit Up On Kickstarter

Ramshackle Games are now running our 8th Kickstarter. All the previous 7 were delivered on time!

This project is for a Jet Bike Construction Kit, so its a big load of parts for you to build a whole bunch of bikes from.

The stretch goals have not been decided on yet as we are asking for suggestions from backers. The project is running for 6 5 weeks so it should be enough time to get some more parts made for the project. So far suggestions include orc and armoured human riders.

As usual the project includes free world wide shipping.

Khurasan releases two 15mm fantasy sets by Tom Meier

We are very pleased to release TWO new sets of 15mm fantasy adventurers — both are sculpted by Tom Meier and these are, in our opinion, the most beautiful 15mm fantasy miniatures ever!

The packs are: a monk, Gnome illusionist, and Elf archer, and a Halfling thief, rogue, and wizard.

They’re available now, and the master pack has been updated to include all five available packs.

Final Week for The Roots of Magic On Kickstarter

Things have been progressing well in the first Roots of Magic KS!

We are close to reaching our funding goal, and have unlocked some cool Demon models for use in scenario games of the Roots of Magic. These models will also be useable with certain characters yet to be revealed (but they will be very soon ;)).

If you have not already done so, or have been looking for a reason to come on board, we have some truly monstrous models and characters being spoiled in the next few days. The game is entering an exciting new phase; many more model options could soon be available, yet the game retains its easy to learn and play feeling.

Please come and support the Roots of Magic, and help to realise the deep and rich background of the game, and of course make loads of cool new models!

Dystopian World Expansion Passes Funding Goal

dystopian-world

We are very excited to be able to report that our major expansion of the Dystopian World has funded on Kickstarter, our first Stretch Goals have been unlocked and we’re off and running with more exciting plans.
At the heart of the Kickstarter is a massive expansion of Dystopian Wars, our highly successful 1/1200th massed battle tabletop set in a Victorian era where a new form of science, fuelled by a mysterious substance known as Element 270, has changed the face of warfare forever!

Ouroboros Tales Posts New Stretch Goals

We are proud to present the first two miniatures from our Ouroboros Tales range, the Shaman and the Brave. These two 54mm scale miniatures were sculpted by the very talented Denis Soul and are cast in high quality resin by the renowed Grx Créations.

Ouroboros Miniatures is a relatively new company specialising in high quality large scale resin miniatures for painters and collectors. We have been preparing several ranges for quite some time now and could really use your help to bring some of these onto the market.

Producing high quality large scale resin miniatures like the Shaman and the Brave is quite expensive. This Kickstarter, with your help, makes sure we can release them sooner than if we would have done so through the regular channels!

New Viking Shield Sets Available from Tabletop-Art

Each set includes 8x different Viking round shields. The shields have a diameter of about 14-15mm. Scale 28-30mm.
