Von Unaussprechlichen Kulten Skirmish Game Up On Kickstarter

Cults. You'd think they'd get along, having that whole "worship a long-forgotten god that wants to destroy everything" bit. But such is not the case. So they're warring with one-another. Though, cults by their nature tend to not have enough to have whole armies worth of soldiers to fight for them, they can still send out skirmish bands. And that's where we find ourselves in Von Unaussprechlichen Kulten, a new skirmish game that's up on Kickstarter.

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.

Strange Aeons third printing coming soon

Uncle Mike's Worldwide will soon be releasing an updated third printing of their Strange Aeons Cthulhu inspired skirmish rules. From their website:
The third printing of Strange Aeons is now officially underway, placing us right on target to have the book available again by the end of the month. Looking back with two additional years of experience and pseudo-wisdom, we found a lot about the book that warranted improvement, and have taken the time to bring the core rulebook up to the (in our opinion) higher standard we set for ourselves with the expansions. The content of the book hasn’t changed save for a few minor corrections and re-wordings (yes, Serpentmen have Poison now – stop bugging us!), but we’ve replaced, added and improved on artwork and graphic elements throughout the book, and are extremely pleased with how it now looks.

Strange Aeons shipping delay

Due to Canada Post workers being locked out, mail delivery from and to Canada is halted and this has a direct impact on shipments of Strange Aeons merchandise from Uncle Mike's Worldwide. From their website:
Much to our dismay, Canadian postal service is suspended until further notice.  We will therefore be unable to ship orders until the situation is resolved.  Most international packages tend to leave Canada within a day or two, so orders placed last week will most likely have escaped the country prior to service stopping.  Apologies for any inconvenience, but this is obviously completely beyond our control.

Shocking Tales of Madness and Mayhem Issue No. 2Uncle Mike's Worldwide is now accepting pre-orders for Shocking Tales of Madness and Mayhem issue 2. This is an expansion to their Strange Aeons Cthulhu skirmish rules. From their website:
Shocking Tales of Madness and Mayhem, Issue No. 2 will be heading to the printer in May, along with a re-print of Shocking Tales #1.  We’re now accepting pre-orders for both products, along with new rulebook bundles. First, a bit about Shocking Tales #2.  We’re very proud of this one, and feel it’s absolutely our best work yet.  As expected, new Lurkers and gear await within the 40 full-colour pages.   What’s particularly exciting though is our first Black Dossier setting, “Time’s Forgotten Land”, which will send your Threshold agents into hostile territory to challenge a series of new scenarios and do battle with beasts and beings previously thought to be long extinct.  Who knows what horrors await you in the darkest corners of the earth?

New Strange Aeons Fishmen

Uncle Mike's Worldwide have added a new set of 28mm Fishmen figures for use with their Strange Aeons Cthulhu inspired rules. Fishmen II From their website:
If there’s one key lesson we’ve learned in nigh-on two years of peddling tiny eldritch horrors, its that everybody loves Fishmen.  We’d therefore be remiss to not offer you more choices at the seafood buffet of terror.  Fishmen II is April’s brand new miniature release, now available at our online store. The next time you hear from us, it should be for two purposes: 1. to declare the winner of our scenario contest, and 2 to announce the pre-release special for Shocking Tales of Madness and Mayhem, Issue No. 2.
