Assault Publishing


The folks at Assault Publishing are headed to Crowdfunding to get themselves set up for PMC 2670. Though, they're doing it a little different than heading to Kickstarter. They're simply taking donations on their website. You can head over to their site and donate as much as you want. And they emphasize that this is a donation, not a purchase. You won't get anything special in return. However, your donation will make the PMC 2670 book better for when it's released, for free, to the public.

Assault Publishing is pushing ahead their PMC 2640 game world with a new game. It's PMC 2670, and as one can assume from the title, it's moving the storyline of everything ahead 30 years. There's new units, new mechanics, new bits of everything. Even the starts of tie-ins with Shadows in the Void. Assault Publishing has posted up a rundown of what you can expect.

I always think it's cool when a company has the rules for their game available to the public. I realize the need to make money on a rulebook, but I also love trying before I buy. The folks over at Assault Publishing have decided to release the rules for their Shadows in the Void sci-fi ship combat game as a free pdf download over on their website. If you've been wanting to check them out, now's your chance.

You can't keep a good gamer down. Like a phoenix, they rise from the ashes. And that's just what they're doing at Assault Publishing. Closing up shop just 2 months ago, they've returned as Assault Publishing Studios. But this time, they're more than a game company. They're an open community designed to help game makers create the projects they love.
And they're starting off with a new rules set in the form of Glorious Lands, a new fantasy miniatures game.

The world of business is a rough one. Companies come and sometimes, sadly, they go. In this case, it's one of those sad occasions where one's going. Assault Publishing will be closing its doors at the end of the month. They're not 100% gone, and their announcement leaves possibilities for a return later, but for the time being, they are closing up shop.

Assault Publishing is bringing in the big guns for their Shadows in the Void sci-fi starship skirmish game. There's bombers, assault transports, and more, letting you show your opponents that you mean business. Those planets are yours and you're ready to take them by force if you need to.

I'd love to see humanity spread out to the stars. I mean, this planet is pretty awesome and all. I'm not gonna try and deny that. But, c'mon! There's a whole universe out there to explore! So I wish we could be like the Terrans in Shadows in the Void. They've got their huge spaceships and are out there. At least you can have tiny versions of them on your gaming table.

I deal with words all day. Mostly, it's in the form of articles and rulebooks, but occasionally it'll run into the more creative forms. Though I don't end up dealing with poetry much, it does show up from time to time. If you're good with syllables, then you might want to check out Assault Publishing's Haiku Contest, going on now.

In space, no one can hear you scream. ... But as far as I'm concerned, lasers still go "pew, pew, pew" and ships explode in fireballs. That's just how I like it. If you're a fan of space combat between squadrons of fighters, you might want to check out Shadows in the Void. It's the new sci-fi minis game rulebook released by Assault Publishing.

The week continues along. We'll get back to that ever-loving weekend soon. Just another couple of days and it'll be time once more. And I'm sure a lot of people in the US are going to be celebrating this weekend. With the 4th of July being a Tuesday this year, I'm guessing a lot of people are going to take this weekend to grill, shoot off some fireworks, and just celebrate America. I know I'm getting together with some friends on Saturday for just that sort of thing. I'm sure there'll be tasty snacks there. Let's snack on some tasty bite-sized gaming stories now, too.

Today on the platter we have: Wargamer Running Hot & Dangerous Kickstarter, Oddzial Osmy’s 3mm June Releases Arrive at PicoArmor, Rebel Minis Releases Gorilla Animech, Esh-Aven Previewed for Shadows in the Void, Through Gamer Goggles Posts Origins 2017 Coverage, New Skull Objective Markers Available From Kromlech, and PKCGames Running Dice of Rolling Kickstarter.

It's been quite a week. I know a lot of people are looking forward to the weekend in order to clear their mind of things. I know that's the case for me. I'm hoping to get some gaming on tomorrow and just decompress. I'm not one for getting political, but just remember that despite all our differences, we're all humans and we all have to live on this planet together.
That said, let's get to some bite-sized gaming stories.

I don't know about you, but for me, it seems like just yesterday was Wednesday. I'm not 100% sure what happened to Thursday (maybe Langoliers ate it?), but it's already gone. That's alright, mind you. I'm always ready for it to be the weekend. Best to power up with some bite-size gaming stories.

On the platter today we have: Circles of Imora Trading Card Game Coming To Kickstarter, Heroic Ballads ver. 1.1 Released, Nomad Games Releases Two New Warlords For Talisman: The Horus Heresy, The Army Painter Technique Painting Bundle Now Available, and Kromlech Weekend Promo Happening Now.

The folks over at Assault Publishing have always been rather busy, coming out with new minis pretty much all the time. Well, they've decided to be even busier and come out with a new space combat game called Shadows in the Void (I guess you could say that the story is as much announcing that's a thing as well). Well, the folks there are looking to generate some extra funds to make the game a reality as well as need to clear out some warehouse space in order to store it. That's where you, the consumer, come in.

I hope everyone's weekend is going well. And to all you fathers out there, Happy Father's Day. At least, that's the holiday here in the US today. Go out and get yourself some steak and potatoes.

The week continues on. We've made our way to Wednesday. Hopefully the first half of your week has been drama-free (unless you're, like, a thespian or something). It's that time to fuel up on some bite-sized gaming stories so we can get through the last half of the week and get back to the weekend.

When people ask me what I'm doing on Sunday, I generally say, "As little as possible."
Granted, considering today has included making breakfast, doing dishes, doing laundry, prepping to cook what will be dinners this week, work on putting together models, and work on a review article, "as little as possible" actually include a lot of things.
It also includes bringing you some bite-sized gaming stories. So let's get to it so I can get back to that giant list of things.

As I mentioned in a post early this morning, there's a portion of my mother's side of the family that's Polish... and I still want to go to Portillo's and get a Polish Sausage... and some Italian Beef... and a tamale... but that's beside the point. Anyway, Kromlech isn't the only game company celebrating Polish independence. Assault Publishing is offering a discount as well.

Assault Publishing has released Heroic Ballads. The game is a fantasy miniatures game that is heavily scenario driven. One player plays as the heroes, looking to defeat the hordes of evil monsters played by what would be considered the Dungeon Master. The game is meant to be a bit more lighthearted, and not to be taken too seriously. It's also a "pay what you want" game over on the Assault Publishing website.

Assault Publishing is running a special deal for the month of march on their laser-cut terrain pieces. Usually costing 120euro, you can get their new starter set for just 99euro. You get quite a bit of terrain in this pack, including rooms and hallways, plus 16 doors to keep them separated.
The deal only lasts as long as March does, so better get on it.

Assault Publishing has updated the rules for Hind Commander. This new update adds in two new variants to the mix. They've got the MDD-500 Defender /MH-6/AH-6 and CH-53E Super Stallion, because you can never have enough helicopters.
They have also updated their webshop to now accept payments in Euros.
