Chapterhouse Studios


Chapterhouse Studios and Games Workshop have been dueling it out for quite some time, as you all know. It seems, however, an agreement has been reached between the two parties.

From the update:

Over the weekend, word broke that both parties reached a settlement. Paperwork has been jointly filed (see below) by both parties with the Chicago court to withdraw all pending litigation due to a private settlement that had been reached by both parties.

The details of the settlement are not disclosed and in almost all legal cases are sealed. So we will have to look for signs of what happened "from the outside".

This case has been a long twisting road full of victories and defeats for both sides along the way.


ChapterHouse Studios has had their assets frozen by further legal action from Games Workshop.

Our assets have been frozen.

Yes, thats pretty much the issue. Many of you may know that Games Workshop has been in a legal battle with us for almost 4 years now.. maybe its 5...

Anyways, they have asked the courts to freeze our assets and this has happened, this happened early September, not long after I posted the photos of the last set of products that were being produced and almost ready to ship.

Here is a long awaited update of the Space Bug weapon emplacement. Sorry it took longer then I thought.

We also redid the demon weapon as well. We decided to go with a demonic statue that would unleash fire and lightning to aid its allies.

Chapterhouse Studios launched a Kickstarter campaign in order to fund a new line of sci-fi terrain.



From the campaign:

The first set will be a "Dark Tech" themed defense line that includes enough barriers and 2 weapon types to enable players to use a defense line with 28mm models. We plan to utilize green clear resin to cast up some components to give that "stygian" look to the terrain.
