Midweek Snippets

We continue on with the post-Gen Con week's work. Though I was able to keep up with a lot of things, obviously, things are going to fall behind in some areas. I'm almost out of the mountain of e-mails I'd gotten over the weekend. If I've not replied to you yet, don't worry, I will. There's just a lot to sort through.

At the moment, though, it's sorting through a bunch of bite-sized stories.

This time around we've got: Age of Tyrants Updates Rulebook, New Heroic Scale Female Heads from Statuesque Miniatures, Fablestone Dice: Bone Origins now on Kickstarter - fantasy themed dice with innovative features, Another Warthrone approved army list: High Elves from Warhammer, Khurasan releases 15mm Middle Eastern Irregulars, Free Miniature for August from The Ion Age, Pay What You Want Adventure Module Now Available, New 32mm Lava themed bases Available from Dark Art Miniatures, Evil Bear Wargames First Release: Bear Tactical Hardsuits, and some more installments of The Fiver from The Meeple Mechanic.

Age of Tyrants Updates Rulebook

Age of Tyrants

Check out the latest preview version of the rules. Changes include new bombard damage and targeting rules, and a combat results chart to replace the previous version that required working out multipliers.

Fablestone Dice: Bone Origins now on Kickstarter - fantasy themed dice with innovative features

Fablestone Dice

Hi everyone! My name is Gary and I'm the creator of Fablestone Dice. And this Kickstarter campaign is for the first ever production run of my original dice set called Bone Origins.

One of my favorite aspects of gaming in a fantasy world is the collection of rare treasures and valuable loot! Often these objects have a fascinating back story, perhaps even one we make up ourselves.

I got thinking, wouldn't it be cool and immersive if the dice we used were just that… curious items that could have actually been discovered on one of our dungeon crawls.

Another Warthrone approved army list: High Elves from Warhammer


You can now use your collection of Warhammer High Elves miniatures to play Warthrone thanks to this new approved list.

Warthrone approved army lists, are created by fans, and sent to us for testing and approval. The approved army lists can be used in any game, event or tournament (official and unofficial) of Warthrone. These lists can be an adaptation of existing armies from other games, or completely invented armies, I will welcome all submissions!

Khurasan releases 15mm Middle Eastern Irregulars

We are very pleased to release our latest range of modern Middle Eastern figurines in 15mm -- these are Middle Eastern irregulars. They're extremely useful to represent fighters in conflicts over the past 30+ years, including Iraqi insurgents and IS fighters.

There are threes sets -- fighters with Russian rifles, fighters with US rifles (supplied with them, as are some of the Free Syrian Army fighters, or having taken them over, as IS has from the Iraqi Army), and finally squad command and weapons (two leaders, two RPGs and two RPKs).

Available now.

The Fiver With Andrew Sallwasser on Designing Biergarten


Guten tag! Mein name ist Andrew Sallwasser. I’m one of the co-founders of Steamboat Gothic Studio. I’m an artist/designer based out of St. Louis, Missouri where I work both as a professional artist working in simulations, and as an amateur game developer involved within the thriving St. Louis indie community. When I’m not playing games or making them you can usually find me either brewing beer or cooking with it. Just about to get started on a Marzen so it’ll be ready by Oktoberfest, seemed appropriate.

The Fiver with Matt Graff on Designing Roadkill Rivals

Roadkill Rivals

Hello, everyone! My name is Matt Graff, and I’m an art director and designer at Adidas in Portland, Oregon. I’m passionate about designing, about creating, and about problem-solving. I feel I have equal tendencies towards creativity/spontaneity/designing and organization/problem-solving/logic. That skill set has served me well in the advertising and design field, and I think those skills also apply well to playing and creating board games.
