It's a holiday in Cambodia. It's tough, kid, but it's life. It's a holiday in Cambodia, don't forget to pack gear to fight against the lizard-people that inhabit the forests, looking to make a resurgence on the world and take over. That's what you'll find in Black Sun, a new miniatures game that's up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
100,000 years ago the Lemurian civilization rivaled Atlantis. Lemurians, unlike the Atlanteans however, were not a human species but were instead reptilians descended from the age of the dinosaurs. Both races were highly advanced in the occult metaphysical arts which were based on a science unlike our modern technology but immensely more powerful than anything humanity has since achieved. Both civilizations simultaneously vanished in a cataclysm of their own making, perhaps a great war between the two. The Ice Age ended, the glaciers melted and the oceans rose, swallowing the Atlantean and the Lemurian continents leaving little behind but legend.
Deep in the remote reaches of the Cambodian jungle lies a lost city, Angkor Sek. The ancient Khmer people constructed their city on the ruins of a much older city, Tau Tau, an outpost of the Lemurian Empire. Beneath the Great Pyramid of Angkor Sek is the Lemurian Heart of the World, a giant crystal of immense power once used to alter time and space. This living jewel still breathes, and at intervals alters space time creating dimensional rifts. One of the rifts leads to Black Sun.
Black Sun is an alternate dimensional version of the Cambodian jungle, but one that has trapped beings from throughout time. On the surface, it is a jungle world like it’s Earth counterpart but the rules of physics are not always consistent with our world. Sometimes rivers flow upwards, rain falls as razer shards of ice and most of all, the Sun, which never sets, is black at it’s core and yet sheds a withering bright radiance which creates a steaming and humid atmosphere.
The campaign's around 1/4 of the way to its goal with still 28 days to go.
There you've got the Flying Head, the Naked Bear, the Horned Serpent, and the Stone Coat Giant (miniature pending. It's still got a bit to go on the green). They're big ones, towering over the other 28mm miniatures. You can add them all to your pledge now.
The campaign continues along. Only 9 days left to get in on the action.

One thing they're very proud of with this Kickstarter is the miniatures sets they've made. Both the Iroquois and the Huron box sets contain 14 individual models.

Based on the the unique and absurd humor of Justin and Mitchell Lucas and with gameplay designed by Adam and Brady Sadler (Warhammer Quest: The Adventure Card Game), Awful Fantasy: The Card Game is a casual card game for 2 - 6 aspiring awful authors. Each player takes on the role of a ridiculous author equipped with a hand of awful cards, which are used to either draw fantasy cards or thwart your rival authors.
The goal of the game is to collect a series of fantasy cards to complete your own tale of awful fantasy. Each story must contain at least 3 fantasy cards, including a plot, a protagonist, and an antagonist. The combinations of these cards are diverse, and each play provides a new opportunity for you to tell a tale more awful than your last.

VIII Corps: The Somme 1916 Coming April 29th
On Friday 29 April, Vexillia will be releasing Neal Reid's first WWI card game VII Corps.
This two-player card game covers the experience of the British VIII Corps on the first day of the Battle of the Somme, July 1st, 1916.
The game follows the course of the pre-battle preparation and the first day of the battle itself. One player is commander of VIII Corps, Lt. General Sir Aylmer Hunter-Weston. The other, his opponent, Lt. General Hermann von Stein commander of the German XIV Reserve Corps.
This is not a balanced game, and one where the British will find it very hard to win.
