Warlord Games: Birthday Bundles and Deals Available Online

Warlord Games: We had a fantastic time celebrating our 10th Birthday with many of you this past weekend! John has decided to extend the deals we had on our webstore for you! Our special miniatures will be available until the end of this week. The other deals will end the following weekend.

Unreleased Miniatures: New Eastern Raider Mercenaries

Unreleased Miniatures released these new 28mm scaled Eastern Raiders for their growing alternative fantasy range based on the Games Workshop The Lord of The Rings Miniature Range.

Studium CMLXV: Blood On The Blade - Micro Skirmish Game

Studium CMLXV: Blood on the Blade is a micro set of rules for solitaire or co-op skirmish game, set on a fantasy background, but can also be used for non-fantasy games (planned expansions will cover Middle-Ages and Dark Ages, possibly Samurai era).

The “Micro” refers to the small set of rules, the small time required to complete one game session and the small number of miniatures required (4-10 figures being a common range). Many micro-details are left to the player, only the “important” rules are included in the twelve pages of the game. The game includes nine Scenarios, covering classical wargame scenes like searching for loot, attacking an enemy base, defending your territory, freeing prisoners. Event markers placed on the Map will create the needed Fog of War and randomize the placement of enemies, events and of course loot! Grab the Blood on the Blade - Micro Skirmish Rules here online

Scenarios can be played individually or as part of a Campaign game: in this case a flowchart will (randomly) determine the next mission; as an example, after a “Scout” mission a bad roll could send your characters on the “Ambush” scenario. Characters on a Campaign will be able to improve their characteristics, but with the improvement of the Reputation Level of your Warband, your enemies will also become stronger. Activation of units (friendly and enemies) is managed with a pool of activation markers, but you can never be sure that every unit will be activated. When an “Enemy” marker is drawn by the pool you will roll on the enemy activation table in the current Scenario to determine the unit to activate and its orders. Contents: Game Rules, 9 Scenarios, 8 Enemy Sheets, 2 Character sheets, 4 Table sheets, 2 Campaign Rosters, 1 Campaign Sheet and 32 markers

Sally 4th: Useful Boxes Storage Solutions - For Miniatures, Rules and Scenery

Sally 4th: Trays and inserts to convert your Really Useful Boxes into really useful figure and games storage. Trays stack on top of each other inside RUB's to increase storage capacity. Inserts for popular figure bases fit inside trays. We've got a range of trays with cut outs so that you can store whole games like Zombicide, Conan, Mansions of Madness etc. in a single box complete with game boards, rule-books, miniatures, cards and tokens. 

These conversion kits take a Really Useful Box to the next level of usefulness! They allow multiple layers of figures or other gaming products such as cards, dice, scenery or tokens to be stored safely and securely, each layer also being easy to lift out. This MDF kit is very easy to assemble and only needs some wood glue. The space inside a tray allows for two inserts to sit snuggly side by side. The idea behind this is that you can have two different inserts per layer.

The Miniature Company: New Welsh Bowmen and Command

The Miniature Company: Well, this is a first: two releases in the same month! I just finished the molds for the new Welsh Bowmen and Command pack, so rather than wait until next month, I thought I'd put them straight up on the website. More Welsh and Indian releases next month!

Alternative Armies: New Crustacean Monster Discounted

Alternative Armies: From the seas or a creation of magic? A brand new fantasy model now released.  The Crustacean Monster is great for many armies and campaigns and it stands around 45mm tall assembled from three pieces.  Sculpted by Kieran Billings following up on his Sandworms we are making an offer upon it until the end of the month.  Click through for details and images plus the sad story of Kandar the warrior.  Thanks.  GBS

Eureka Miniatures: New 28mm A Right Bloody Mess & Mad Maximillian Miniatures

Eureka Miniatures: What do you do for thrills when you've given the best years of your youth as a fighter combat ace in the War to End All Wars? What happens when the whole deuced show goes and actually – ends? And they won't even let you keep your kite!

In a normal world, the soul-destroying answer would be, "go back to your job at the bank." Fortunately, the fates have no intention of condemning you to such a mundane existence for long. The 1930s have arrived, and a very uncivil war has broken out across this sunburnt country. The call to action is a clarion cry. They still won't let you have your plane, but you're not going to let that stop you. The auto is all the rage these days. A little elbow grease, engine oil, and old-fashioned ingenuity, and there's a whole new frontier stretching out before you in which to test your pilot's reflexes and your iron nerve.

Tally-Ho!All of the figures and vehicles we are releasing here came about due to the suggestion of Matthew Clarkson that a Civil War could have occurred in Australia in the 1930s, inspired by the Very British Civil War ranges from the U.K. The idea captured our imagination at Eureka, and we began telling others and a week after the initial thoughts, "Ty" Chapman brought us three converted and scratchbuilt models of automobiles from the 1930s that he had up-gunned. These in turn were spotted by Tony Ramsden who suggested they would be perfect for a "Mad Max" 1930s scenario.

That idea was then taken-up by Mana Press who have written, and are soon-to-print, a set of car racing and dueling rules called Maximillian 1934. Coming full circle, Matthew Clarkson will also be releasing a book soon, A Right Bloody Mess, which will be a full review of Australia's resources and capabilities in the 1930s, with suggestions as to how a Civil War would have progressed. It is an essential guide to creating scenarios in Australia at the time, and will be available soon through Eureka Miniatures.

To add depth to an Australian setting, we have commissioned Victorian police, gangs, animals, shearers and various vehicles. But don't feel you have to operate in the Wide Brown Land – nearly all the pieces can be used in any corner of the globe, let your imagination run free and conjure with the Jazz Age. We want to see what you come up with for this era. Figures and cars sculpted by Alan Marsh, Paul Clarke, and Tim Popelier. Sheep station by Battlefield Accessories.
