GameCraft Miniatures


I hope everyone had a good and productive weekend. To those that went to Salute... I hate you. I wish I could've gone. To everyone who didn't go to Salute, I feel your pain *solidarity*. Seeing as it is Monday and we're back at the office, it's time to make your gaming tables look as good as possible with our Terrain Corner feature.

Today we have: New Terrain Bundles From Demo's Laser-Cut Designs, New 6mm European Building from GameCraft, and Pwork Wargames Releases Darkburg Gaming Mat.

Earlier, a coworker called today "Friday Eve." She said it sounded a lot better than "Fourth Monday."
... I can't say I disagree with that line of reasoning at all. Friday Eve does sound a lot better than Fourth Monday.
So welcome to our Friday Eve Terrain Corner.

Today we have: Deep-Cut Studio releases new gaming mat for naval battles, Mantic Releases Dungeon Saga Terrain, Heroic Maps - Pyramid of Nekhtou Now Available, GameCraft Miniatures Releases Olympic Hotel In 3 Scales, Rebel Sector: Pwork Wargames science fiction gaming mat, and Tabletop World ofers Free Shipping.

Back to the daily grind here on Monday. I've brought in cookies and cheesecake to the office that I made over the weekend. I probably shouldn't have a whole cheesecake and 2 dozen cookies sitting at home. I'm already pushing my way out of "Gamer Medium" into "Gamer Large" as it is.

I wouldn't recommend trying to eat any of this terrain I'm about to tell you about, though. Best to just use it to enhance your gaming.

In this batch we've got: ModelEarth releases new Dungeon system, Brigade Models Release 2mm Roman Temples, and GameCraft Miniatures releases 8 new brownstones.

Land of the free. Home of the brave.
Independence Day is coming up. It's time to celebrate with some BBQ cookouts, some fireworks, and some miniatures gaming.
To help out with that last one, GameCraft Miniatures is having themselves a sale.

GameCraft Miniatures shows how big some buildings can be, even in 15mm, with the release of their new WWII Government Buildings over in their webshop.

Source

From the release:

GameCraft Miniatures have released a new 15mm building that is perfect for Flames of War and other 15mm WWII wargames. This building features a removable top floor and optional floor and stairs kit for those that want to play inside as well as outside the building. The model measures 15" x 6.75" x 6.7" tall (381mm x 171.5mm x 170mm) and it's design was inspired by the Reichstag building in Berlin. This is not a true scale representation of the Reichstag (that would be just over 3.5 times this large) but I think you'll see a family resemblance and agree that this kit is a reasonable size for gaming.

From the announcement:

After 5 years with the same online store and almost 2000 items online, it became obvious to both the GameCraft owner and the customers that their online store was getting bloated, difficult to navigate and generally felt old. So, GameCraft's owner set about creating an entirely new online store. the new store is much better organized, easier to navigate and includes hundreds of new options that customers will really enjoy, such as multiple payment options, ability to create an account or just check out as a "guest", PayPal integration for those with PayPal accounts, a real nice customer rewards program, better photo integration with zoom", inline video tutorials on several products, and much much more.

GameCraft Miniatures starts off a new line of European Style Houses with their first new releases.

Large Country Estate

From the announcement:

GameCraft Miniatures have released the first two new structures in a series that will initially include eight structures of various sizes and will grow from there.
These kits are made from laser cut MDF. Having the half timber details as separate parts makes assembly and finishing very quick and simple, Simply build the main MDF structure and paint it your choice of color (no need to even fill the seams, the half timber details will hide them) and then glue on the half timber pieces (painted or not). You can have a fantastic looking building in minutes.
The Large Country Estate pictured here is the largest of these structures so far at an impressive 12.25" x 10.25" x 6.5" (311mm x 260mm x 165mm)

GameCraft Miniatures has new movement templates available for the X-Wing Miniatures Game from Fantasy Flight Games.



From the website:

These laser cut MDF templates will last much longer than the cardboard templates that come with the core game set.

Please note that there are two versions of these templates available, one set has the arrows and numbers engraved deeply into the surface of the MDF creating sunken 3-dimensional numbers and arrows, the other version has the numbers and arrows outline engraved only. The deep 3-dimensional engraving makes for a much cooler effect but takes 3 times as much machine time to make, therefore they cost a bit more than the simpler outline engraved templates.

GameCraft Miniatures will be coming out with new Wired West set of buildings to help enhance your table.



From the announcement:

This week GameCraft Miniatures announced that they are working with Krazy Ivan's War Games Emporium to bring you this exciting new line of products. The buildings in this series are designed by Krazy Ivan's and GameCraft is handling the manufacturing and distribution of the products.

This series of structures is a collection of sci-fi/wild west buildings inspired by TV shows like Firefly.

According to the designer, "The Wired West series takes old west architectural features like boardwalks, bill boards, and row buildings and throws them in a blender with what most people would consider ‘traditional’ sci-fi colony style buildings (converted containers, pre-fab structures, etc)."

All buildings in the series are beautifully designed in 3D CAD software to insure perfect fit and easy assembly. They feature removable roofs and removable upper floors so you have access to the entire interior of the structures.

From the release:

This is a new line of buildings that I'm very excited about. These kits feature great looks, fast building times and reasonable prices. These are perfect for people that don't want to spend a lot of time assembling but want something that looks great when it's done.

This new series of buildings is being released in 15mm for Flames of War or other 15mm gaming systems. There are 8 buildings in the series at this time and the line will certainly grow in the future. Discuss
GameCraft Miniatures brings you a new line with their WWII City Buildings.



From the announcement:

This WWII European style building is the first in a new series being introduced by GameCraft Miniatures. We are calling them "Hybrid Kits" as they include a facade that is a resin casting with excellent raised details, sides and back are simple laser cut and engraved MDF. This puts the maximum detail on the face of the building and keeps costs down.

Using MDF for the sides, back and top allow us to release this kit at about 1/2 the cost of an all resin kit and it still looks great where it matters most, on the front of the building.
