From the campaign:

Strange Aeons is a thrilling miniature skirmish game set in the 1920s and populated with the weird denizens of the works of H.P. Lovecraft. Designed for use with 28-32mm scale miniatures, each 2-player match of Strange Aeons plays in 30-60 minutes and requires only 3-10 models per player. And with a standard board area of just 2’ x 3’ (approx. 60 x 90 cm), all else you need to play is some six-sided dice, a tape measure, a kitchen table and a box of scenery.

Play Unplugged has another miniatures review up. This one's for the Threshold Operatives 4 set from Strange Aeons.



Source

From the review:

I first stumbled across Strange Aeons while chatting with a Canadian gamer at a Gen Con Indy a few years back. I wish I could remember his name to give him a shout-out, but alas, I can’t seem to jog it from my memory. (Gen Con Indys begin to blur together after you’ve covered enough of them!) Regardless, I’m glad he did, because as a enormous H.P. Lovecraft fan, I was happy to see that a company (Uncle Mike’s Worldwide) was exploring the Lovecraft Mythos in a format other than RPGs.

Strange Aeons has some new releases available over in their webshop.

From the release:

A standalone game based on the mechanics of Strange Aeons, this 110-page PDF rulebook contains all you'll need to raise your own nefarious cult and do battle with other evildoers to seek the ultimate favour of your dark and nebulous gods. Get sacrificing!

Strange Aeons has a look at their newest Cult-Exclusive model over on their website. Are you a cultist?



From the announcement:

As we enter the Cult of the Black Goat's second year, it's time for a new cult exclusive miniature! Cultists may place an order with the UWM shop to receive their submerged Deep One, rules for which appeared in issue #2 of Fhtagn!, our cult newsletter.

The monstrous surfaced version, standing a staggering 3" high, will be officially released with Shocking Tales #4 in 2014. However, as an added bonus, cult members may procure this piscine peril immediately. Remember, cultists only, so non-members will have to purchase a cult membership (good for a lifetime!) if they wish to get their hands on one early.

Strange Aeons knows it's summer, but they didn't want to wait a couple months to release their new witches set.



From the release:

Summer isn’t for witches, you say? Well, traditionally, I suppose they’re more of an autumn thing. Dying trees, decay, halloween, etc, etc. Why fall into the cliche though? Summer is pretty horrifying too. Appalling heat, hail, sunburns. All sorts of nasty stuff can happen. Really. So, this summer brings you a second set of witches to round out your coven!

Our new pack, now available in the online store, features two grotesque hags, a foully bubbling cauldron, and a detestable little hairy familiar for good measure.


Discuss
Strange Aeons has released their Witch, complete with alternate form and familiars.



From them to you:
