Midweek Snippets

Amazing what a difference a week makes. Last week, I was lamenting how long it was all taking. This morning, I woke up and was like, “Whoah… it’s already Wednesday!” That certainly works for me. Faster to get to the weekend, the better. But if we’re going to be going along at this break-neck pace, we should stock up on some bite-sized gaming stories.

From them to you:

26 years ago next week, in a bed and breakfast hotel in Exeter, Fenris Games was born. Back then we were a PBM roleplaying company, and though there’s no time for creative writing any more, we’re reaching a much wider audience nowadays with resin and metal goodies.

To celebrate the anniversary we’re running another double value Loyalty Card scheme. Buy one of our cards before Midnight GMT this Sunday (20th July) and the relevant value will be doubled (so, a £100 Gold Card will be worth £200 in shop credit). Full terms and conditions are on the website.

Oddity miniatures, big announcement

Oddity Miniatures has a big announcement posted, the main crux of it being that they were purchased by Hasslefree Miniatures.

Source

From the announcement:

The big announcement!

First of all I want to thank everyone who has helped me establish Oddity Miniatures as it has become so far. The last year has been a very learnful experience and I’ve met some great people along the way. For me the highlights were commissioning my first sculpt, the Hogman, done by Paul Muller and getting a chance to get my hands on the rights and moulds for the orcs formerly owned by Fictive Miniatures and launching the Indiegogo campaign. Ironically the downside was that same campaign which failed to reach its target. Luckily I was able to find the funds to complete the transaction and get them anyway. The backers who did pledge, I will be eternally grateful to, and I still can’t wait to see some paintjobs by them on the orcs and more particular the Hogman! HINT!

Note: post your name suggestions on the linked page, not in the comments here.

Fenris Games “name this guy” contest

Fenris Games is another company looking for help in naming one of their game pieces. Theirs is more of a fantasy figure. What do you think he should be called?

Tabletop Skirmisher Reviews the Fenris Post Apoc Bases

Tales of a Tabletop Skirmisher has had the chance to check out the Fenris Games Post Apocalypse resin bases range.

From the review:

Over the last couple of years I have been using the Fenris Games Post Apoc base toppers but I recently found out that they do the same designs in full bases.
A set of these were up as a prize in the Paint the City Pink auctions and were won by Bubba Ho Tep from the Kentucy Fried Gamers Youtube page, as Bubba is a good friend I took some sneaky photos before sending them off.

Fenris Games Loyalty Card special Mayan offer

Fenris Games is also expecting the world to end, but just in case it doesn’t, they’ve got a sale on their Loyalty card going to double your points.

Today only, any Loyalty Card purchased in our 2013 reward scheme will be doubled in value for anyone brave enough to bet the future of the planet against massive savings on Fenris stuff next year. So, buy a £50 loyalty card, get £100 in credit for purchases throughout 2013. This scales across the range of cards – so the Platinum card will be worth £400 to any buyers! These limited Mayan cards will also gain their buyer double the number of entries into the end-of-year prize draw.

On top of that, every order placed today for a Mayan Loyalty Card will get a free copy of our 120mm 2012 base, shown below – perfect for all of your apocalyptic basing needs – sent post free, anywhere in the world.

Full details of the Loyalty Card Scheme and relevant costs inside/outside the UK are on our website.

Fenris Games 2013 Loyalty Scheme

Fenris Games will be rewarding repeat customers again in the upcoming year.

Following the success of this year’s Loyalty Card (with a prize worth over £750!) we’re running a similar scheme again for next year.

Buy a card before the end of this year, and gain 30-50% discount on your purchases for next year, free master castings from next year’s mini releases, and entry into the prize draw to win one of EVERYTHING we produce over the course of the year (worth at least £500 at a rough guesstimate).

Next year’s intended releases destined for the prize box will include: Sulaco walls, more rooms, and more Hive pieces; several Arkham Avenue laser-cut building kits; more APEX investigators, modern horror cultists, 28mm wildlife, several new base ranges, vacformed styrene textures, and (fingers crossed) Snuurg’s long-time-WIP Colossal Dragon….
