Troublemaker Games


Midweek Snippets

Midweek already. Never a complaint when we are already halfway through the week. Especially since I've got gaming lined up for Saturday. But before we get there, we need to actually get there, if you know what I mean. And if we're going to get there, we need to have snacks to eat. And that's just what we're here for now.

On the platter today we have: Divination Gaming Dice by DougOutCrafts Up On Kickstarter, Nuns with Laserguns Up On Kickstarter, Brigade Models Releases New 15mm Dragoon Half-tracks for Hammer's Slammers, Up to 25% OFF sci-fi Female Resistance Fighters range From Statuesque Miniatures, RN Estudio Running Mythexplorers II Kickstarter, and New Stalingrad Germans Available From Great Escape Games.

Troublemaker Games 6mm Crowdfunder Last Day

Troublemaker Games is in their final day for their 6mm Indiegogo campaign. They've made it through all their stretch goals, so if you want in, it's a pretty good deal on the littlest of little mans.

From the campaign:

Troublemaker Games have unlocked our final stretch goal for this campaign as we head into the last 24 hours.
=====
The command echelons of Tusculum Novan armies require a vehicle that is part command centre, and part mobile battle fortress. Wrapped in multiple layers of reactive armour, equipped with advanced communications and jamming technology, protected by energy shields and armed with multiple defensive weapons, the Dictum Mobile Command Centre is the heart of a Novan army at war. Some Novan commanders have been known to request some of their command centre's spacious operations room be given over to the operation of a massive automatic petard cannon and seek out direct battle aboard their massive command vehicles, although this is not standard recommended practice at the orthodox Novan war academies.

The Dictum is a very large metal model kit, 5.8cm long, 3.6cm high, and 4cm wide.

We're looking to produce some new 6mm scifi army plastic sprues.

Timeline 300 New Release : British Field Guns from Troublemaker Games

Troublemaker Games brings some firepower to the battlefield with the release of their new British Field Guns.



From the release:

Our new release today for Timeline 300 (The 10mm scale RTS-like Steampunk Wargame from Troublemaker Games) are our British Field Guns:

The standard issue Field Guns employed by the British Army are the Amplified Coherent Light Collimator, and the Sonic Carronade. The former is a directed beam energy weapon of arcane scientific manufacture, which projects a flashing beam of light that pierces armour with ease, whilst the latter is essentially a scaled up version of the Sonic Blunderbusses issued to British Line Infantry that shares a analogous anti-infantry role on the battlefield.

As with most machines of the 1870’s Field Guns are steam-powered and semi-autonomous, capable of continuous high rates of fire and limited propulsion just so long as their ammunition and compacted coal supply hold out. Each Field Gun squad generally consists of two gunners, two loaders, and a sergeant to oversee both fire teams under his command and ensure that their weaponry is employed against the correct target.

This set contains 12 Amplified Coherent Light Collimators, 12 Sonic Carronades, 36 gun crew and 12 Troublemaker Games Plastic Bases.

12x units, £12.

Timeline 300 New Release : Martian Flying Machine

Troublemaker Games has their eyes to the skies with their latest Timeline 300 release: Martian Flying Machine.



From the release:

Troublemaker Games are pleased to announce our latest release for TIMELINE 300, the MARTIAN FLYING MACHINE.

Heavier than air flight of objects larger than a human being has not been achieved by Earthlings, and so the sight of a Martian Flying Machine soaring through the sky is one that terrifies those humans who are unfortunate enough to observe one in flight.

Equipped not just with a short range chemical weapon system that suffocates its targets, the Flying Machine also carries an Aetherical Translocator that allows it to bring new Martians onto the battlefield which can close to finish off those left alive after the black smoke clears. It is a horrific dual threat which is becoming increasingly more common on the battlefields.

This pack contains one Martian Flying Machine, as well as a clear plastic flying stand.

Note that this model is produced in Resin, and may contain some small air bubbles.

The price for this "super-heavy" flyer is £8

Troublemaker Games Presents: Timeline 300

Troublemaker Games is a new Miniatures company, specialising in the design of quirky and original Miniature War Games:



From their website:

Our high quality miniatures, designed by acclaimed sculptors Ben and Barny Skinner, are designed on computer, allowing for the highest possible level of detail.

We don't just make models though; we make games. Our first game is Timeline 300, a 10mm scale Steampunk wargame, set in an alternate version of the year 1870. Great Britain and Germany, supported by steam-powered technology and the magic of Thaumatic energy, fight for dominance of the only resource that matters, coal, all under the hungry gaze of the approaching Martians.

Unlike many wargames, Timeline 300 is not played by buying two equally pointed armies, lining them up and fighting. Instead, the game is more about the capture of resources which allow the purchase of new forces during the game. Battles can start small and develop into vast conflicts, as the fight for control of the flow of coal intensifies.

Our website is http://www.troublemakergames.co.uk, and you can contact us by email at troublemakergames@gmail.com
