Sunday Snippets

Those lazy, hazy, crazy Sundays of summer. We don't have many of them left. It's already noticeably cooler here in Atlanta. You don't go outside and instantly curse.

Anyway, we've got a selection of bite-sized stories for you.

In this batch of Snippets we have: Purgatory Miniatures Previews First Model, Some Installments of The Fiver from The Meeple Mechanic, Back in Business Warmodelling now is Battlemodels, Oddzial Osmy’s 3mm July Releases Arrive at PicoArmor, and Lords of the World Fantasy Miniatures Previewed.

Purgatory Miniatures Previews First Model


Purgatory Miniatures are introducing a range of unique and quirky models set in a world where angel is against angel and humans are the collateral grot of the world. In the beginning, there was Death who is the first model from the range and features a savage looking granny with a large pair of scissors! Go on over and have a look and see what you think.

The Fiver with Thomas Eliot on Designing Cultists of Cthulhu

Cultists of Cthulhu

Hey there! I’m Thomas Eliot, designer of Cultists of Cthulhu and Professor Pugnacious here at Sixpence Games. I move around a lot – right now I’m in Brooklyn, at the end of the month I’ll be in Australia, and who knows after that? Bloomberg Businessweek once called me a “Guardian of the Apocalypse”.

I’ve been designing games my whole life and selling them since 2012. I’ve been working on Cultists of Cthulhu for over two years and it’s finally available on Kickstarter. Check it out, back it, and spread the word!

The Fiver with Scott Hansen on Designing Posse: Wild West Justice

Posse Wild West Justice

Hi! I’m Scott Hansen, designer of Posse: Wild West Justice. A native of New York, I’ve been calling Dallas my home since 1980. By day, I am a mild-mannered video game designer, but whenever the call arises, I take to the tables and play board games!

The Fiver with Shem Phillips on Designing Flee the Scene

Flee the Scene

Hello! My name is Shem Phillips. I’m the guy behind Garphill Games and the Viking-themed “North Sea” series. I also run a garment printing company on the Kapiti Coast of New Zealand. On top of that I also play guitar in a local band – oh, and I do my best to be a good husband and father to my lovely family.

The Fiver with Andrew Voigt on Designing Perspective


Hello, all! I’m Andrew Voigt, the designer of Perspective.

I was asked to share some of my life, so here it is! I live up in Minneapolis Minnesota where I’m part of a fantastic local game design community called The Polaris Collective. For income I run a used book business with my brother; it’s been about a year since I started working with him and we have about 4 people who work for us buying and listing books.

Back in Business Warmodelling now is Battlemodels


It is with great pleasure that we announce the return of the Warmodelling catalogue under its new name “BATTLEMODELS”,as Capitan Games Ltd. is the worlwide agent of Capitan Miniatures, S.L. owner of the rights of the miniatures. Moulding has now commenced in the UK and, from today, you can place advance orders in the shop for September delivery. We have started with the 15 mm Napoleonic and Ancients ranges and the 20 mm WW2 range. The other 15 mm ranges (Carlist Wars, Spanish-American War and Napoleonic Naval) and the 28 mm “Lost legions” figures will follow shortly.
We are building stock towards a September delivery to give our new moulding operation time to prepare shipments. If we experience a huge demand, it may be that deliveries will stray into October but we shall keep everyone informed if this happens.
