TGN Sunday Snippets

It seems that for most, this long weekend has been a rather rainy one (I know I’ve had plenty of plans altered by the skies opening up and dumping down rain everywhere). I hope you’re keeping dry and safe out there. Might just want to play some games inside. Or you could do like me and cook something. I’ve got Italian Beef in the crock pot and even though Christmas was several days ago, I decided to make another fruitcake (I enjoyed the first one so much and had enough leftover ingredients).

Speaking of bite-size morsels, let’s get you some bite-size stories for your Sunday.

Today we have: Deathball v1.5 Released, Polyversal 6mm Sci-Fi Miniatures System Kickstarter Teaser Posted, New Dice Trays from Tectonic Craft Studios, and Infamy Miniatures Running Goblin Chieftain Kickstarter.

Infamy Brings The Black Market to Salute 2015

Infamy is another vendor headed to Salute this Saturday, and they’ll be bringing the Black Market with them. Not, like, the real black market, or I’m sure the Bobbies would be waiting for them. No, this Black Market is full of steampunk-inspired miniatures goodness. Many of the miniatures are pre-releases that won’t be available for general retail until sometime next year. Those that can’t make the show can also go online to make orders for certain figures as well, but only on Saturday. check after the cut for details.
They’ll also have demos of their game, Welcome to the Big Smoke. Sign up early to make sure you get to try it out.

From the preview:

I’m writing to you from my office in the new Infamy HQ, where there is now the wonder of working internet. Huzzah! This means that I can get on with all sorts of communication type stuff I’ve been restricted on. What better way to celebrate than with an update?

New preview renders for Infamy

Infamy Miniatures has posted up some more preview renders for their game.

Source

From the post:

Dave Kidd has finished up the Pigeon on the Tea Machine and it looks bloody amazing! These renders of the final model show two pigeons on top. These are two mounting options and once it’s printed I’ll work out which will work best. I may include both in the kit, it will depend on castability.

What better way to celebrate the easy availability of a nice cup of tea than taking a look at another model? Having a nice coffee perhaps, but I fear that may be sacrilege around these parts! 😉

The most recent model sculpted by Adrien Debos is Princess Outis. This enigmatic visitor to the Big Smoke is an expert at navigating the waterways of the city. When she’s on land she uses her spear gun and trident to pin down or round up her enemies, so she’s a really useful addition to your gang if you want an element of control. Her model’s looking pretty shiny too!

Progress and cheeky new shenanigans from Infamy

Infamy lets us know how things are progressing with their Kickstarter campaign with a look at some new renders.

From the post:

Hello everyone,

I know you folks sometimes get a bit restless when there are no developments, so I’m just dropping in to give a bit of an update. Not too much of note to report as for the most part, stuff is just ticking along.

Mr. Kingdom unchained by Infamy Miniatures

Infamy Miniatures unlocked Mr. Kingdoms over in their Kickstarter campaign. There’s only 4 days left. If you want in on the action, you’d better do it soon.

Mr Kingdom

From the campaign:

Stomping in to unleash mechanical retribution on the gangs of the city, Mr Kingdom is going to be an outstanding model – a visual treat! He is quite a specialist – rather too big and stompy to fit into a normal gang (unless the other was to take a Suppressor to counter him, which could be lots of fun!) so like the Suppressor, he has some extra options.

Infamy Miniatures posts new preview art

Infamy Miniatures keeps rolling along with their Kickstarter campaign. They’ve made it to over 700 backers and 750% funded. They’ve got more preview artwork posted up.

From the post:

Seven noble/crazy individuals have taken up the Infamy Insider pledge which has, along with the final Lifer being taken, ramped up the overall total beyond £75k. In addition, over 700 backers are now supporting Infamy: Welcome to The Big Smoke!

This is really amazing stuff and there’s still a week to go. I hope that it’s going to be a fun one!

ArcWorlde comes to Infamy

ArcWorlde is the latest system to crossover with Infamy. Go check out the new miniature added to the Infamy Kickstarter. There’s still 9 days to go on the clock.

Futura Unlocked, new stretch goals posted for Infamy

Infamy has unlocked Futura in their Kickstarter campaign and posted up some new concept art as well.

Source

From the campaign:

It’s been another great day for the campaign. Some backers bid farewell to the Big Smoke, but other new backers have come along for a visit. Hello to the new people! 🙂 Thanks to the continuing support another stretch goal has been unlocked.

Futura is an X-Large choice for you to add to your pledge. This model will be sculpted by Dave Kidd and should be a really awesome, imposing miniature.

Infamy Miniatures goes through more stretch goals

Infamy Miniatures continues to break through stretch goals in their Kickstarter campaign. Check out the new concept art.

From the campaign:

There I was, about to help out in preparing the evening meal with my girlfriend Jemma and Alex from Warploque Miniatures, and the second Lifer pledge got snaffled up. So, not only has one more amazing backer secured themselves a whole lot of cool Infamy: Welcome to The Big Smoke stuff, they’ve also gotten me out of having to make any food. Today is a good day and they are awesome!

Infamy Miniatures crosses £50k

Infamy Miniatures made it up and over another stretch goal in their Kickstarter campaign. With still 19 days left, there’s plenty more stretch goals to go.

Gunnery

Source

From the campaign:

Gunnery is a rather wild model that evolved from a fairly simple idea. The basic principle of it is that Gunnery, a favoured Lost Boy, suffered a horrendous crash, leaving him paralysed from the waist down. He needed something to transport him around and I needed to come up with something to facilitate it. What was supposed to be a small technological addition became this massive machine! I probably shouldn’t have watched a certain film that sounds like Gritty City Gang Prang during the development process!

Gunnery’s background is that an earlier raid had secured this experimental flying automobile for the Lost Boys gang and a perfect fit was made. Now Gunnery can roam the skies and defend his brothers and sisters from above.

Infamy previews Suppressor renders

Infamy Minaitures is showing off renders for their Suppressor mini over on their Kickstarter page.

From the post:

So… yeah… I got a bit carried away with this one! From the first time I mentioned the Suppressor to some friends behind the scenes, there’s been nothing but excitement for it. Somehow, all that enthusiasm led to… well… I guess I’ll just show you some pictures of this beast!

Infamy Miniatures New stretch goals unlocked – Captain Brindie, Dimension Hop Tesla and cheaper add-ons

Infamy Miniatures has made it through more stretch goals in their Kickstarter campaign. They’re also showing off some new artwork.

Source

From the post:

This is so awesome. Five days in and over 400 people of exceptional taste have backed the Kickstarter. I honestly didn’t dream that it would happen so fast and I’m extremely proud that you all see something in Infamy: Welcome to The Big Smoke that has encouraged you to put in for a pledge.

It just makes me more committed than ever to ensure the minis and the game are bloody amazing!

It also means that the 400 backer stretch goal is down. 😀

Guild Ball and Infamy Miniatures crossover mini

Infamy Miniatures has a special crossover mini they’re doing with Guild Ball as part of their Kickstarter campaign.

From the update:

The World Cup is over and done with and Germany are the champions. But let’s be honest, the real winner was football… or something like that!

Ok, I have to admit it – what with the build up to my Kickstarter being at the same time as the World Cup, I’ve barely been able to pay attention to football’s premiere event. But there was no way I was going to miss out on some sort of football-related excitement this campaign.

So, allow me to introduce Harry ‘The Hat’ Hallahan, a crossover miniature between me and the fine folks at Guild Ball! This is something that I’ve been talking to Rich and Mat about for a while and we’ve concocted a character who we are all rather happy with!

What is Infamy?

A skirmish game with playing-card-controlled skill management and opposed-dice combat creating strategic, hybrid gameplay.

A range of intricately detailed, resin-cast, 32mm scale miniatures. Many Infamy: Welcome to The Big Smoke characters are based on famous individuals from literature and history, but given a steampunk twist.

An alternate Victorian London in turmoil through the development of advanced new technology. The city is packed with intriguing stories, fascinating characters and a deep history, making for a rich steampunk setting.
