With the Blood and Plunder campaign finishing a few days ago, this terrain package is ideal. If you are getting into 3d printing, build your library and get these great patterns.

With Pirates and Native villages and large or small modular buildings, this set includes ships and boats and a seafront fort. What better time than now to revisit the Ages of Pirates?

Creeping close to the ruined temple, you squatted behind a large bush and surveyed the area carefully for any dangers, strange monsters were rumoured to be in the region of the temple, but there was no sign of anything alive, only the fallen columns, tumbled walls and vines and trees everywhere. Satisfied there is no danger, you start towards the entrance, only to be brought up short as a bony hand grabs you. You are surprised at both the strength and the attack, you had seen no sign of anything near by, whatever it is must have been lurking in the bush right next to you! Struggling around, you finally see your attacker; it is the bush itself! And other bushes are uprooting and coming towards you!

Some nice dice towers made of Aspen, lightweight and durable. Stained to see the grain with a class emblem laser cut into the face of the tower.

The tower breaks down into a flat packed box and it is held together by strong magnets. To reduce noise and protect dice and wood, each tray is lined with faux leather.

Last day to get into the stockade and secure your settlement. It has grown through the course of the campaign, as a witch moved in across the stream and built a wooden bridge across the torrent. Indeed, the settlement has grown to such an extent, a dunny was required, so the Latrine was built, not to be placed near the well for sanitary reasons!

Such is the nature of living on the frontier, some walls and barricade have been thrown together whilst the stockades are being constructed.

Get in now, or be shut out as the gates close and the campaign ends…

The halfling Skeletons return to Kickstarter, accompanied this time by many reinforcements. Spears, swords and other hand weapons are being called up by master Necrohalfer John Pickford, and sculpted by Bob Olley. Full of character and plenty of variety among the poses, with more proposed ad they stretch a little…

Ideal to add variation to an existing undead army, or create your own army of skeletal halflings.

The Night watchers oath

“Night gathers, and now my watch begins. It shall not end until my death. I shall take all mushrooms juice that I can. I shall wear black clothes with long hooded capes. I am the laughts in the darkness. I am the watcher on the shadows. I am the shield that guards the Epititas Land. I swear for my green ass and my honor that I will fight and die at my brothers side, for this night and all the nights to come”.

Adding to the ever growing range of greenskins who are flocking to hobby tables around the world, these Yepas Goblins are full of character and are great looking little models.

In order to relieve the cost a little, Jeffrey had decided to release the printing files for the trench run tiles and powernodes and cannons to cut postage out of the cost of backing this project. With some great Star Wars oriented Space Station terrain, why limit it to Xwing. I and sure many other games can be played upo this surface, and many structures and buildings can be manufactured utilising the pieces.

Of course, the physical pledges are still available, as are the additional gaming accesories of a Dice Tower, Yavin Timer and Sabre Hilt Dice cups, for which the patterns are NOT included.

Just another reason to get that 3D printer you know you want.

Out of the sadistically brutal training halls of Under Greebo come the contenders for this season’s Fantasy Football Trophy. These elves of the dark kind are accompanied by some of their less wicked, but no less talented High Elven Kin and a team of Wood Elves has wandered in out of the wilderness.

For these wonderful miniatures to represent your favourite team on the Static grass pitch, don’t miss out and back the winning team, now.

The Stonehaven range is expanding, and it is a great range of additions. With new halflings, grippli, humans and a Minotaur, some cloaked adventurers and a tengu, there is plenty of choice available.

That Mechanical Horse… I can see it tethered to a hitching rail by a recharge cable in a Wild West Exodus or other steampunk setting.

And whilst there, check out the rest of their marvelous range.

On Kickstarter, but not your local bookseller as a finished series. LOL/

Nice models, lots of backers, what more really need to be said. It is a C’Mon project so expect a lot of add ons, balanced by some stretch goals. They have gone with the movement trays and massed movement option, rather than the current trend of skirmish movement, which is understandable given the setting.

Cards giving individuals and units abilities enable a player to structure an army to their own game style.

In conjunction with Dark Sword Studios, who have been doing Song of Ice & Fire models for a decade, they have got some really nice models happening. I have the Dark Sword Aria and Jon and, in metal, they are wonderful models.

A Kickstater exclusive The High Seneschal is included. This, essentially, gives all non-refutable bragging rights to the victor for eternity. This alone is worth backing and playing for.

Will you back the Wolf or the Lion?

I will back this for sure, if Mr Martin finishes the series in the next couple of weeks. I started reading this series before my son was born and he is now further ahead than I am thanks to the wonders of modern technology and Mr Martin not bothering to put pen to paper and actually finish the books. That shows how old it is, pen to paper, hmmm…

As the moon wanes, the monsters are in the home stretch. Who will make it back to their clan with the potion? Will the strength of the werewolf overcome the tenacity of the vampire? Will the guile of the vampire be enough to outwit the animal cunning of the werewolf? Is speed enough for the werewolf to emerge victorious? Or will it be wasted as the target evaporates into illusion?

Be part of the final run home, as we find out who will be victorious in this most serious of races.

In conjunction with the ongoing Spectrum Double Anodised dice campaign, Zucati have launched a secondary campaign for a dice tower and storage case. With a nice wood finish and a fantastic rolling action inbuilt, this case will ensure every decision of fate is completely random, that’s how we roll isn’t it?

If you need dice, then back the Spectrum also. Double anodised colours make reading numbers easy, and stylish. Backing both gains worldwide free shipping, so you’re already half way there in savings anyway.

Vikings Great Hall Burning finishes soon, with 10 hours left to go at present, they are well and truly funded and have a new pledge level available for a viking shield wall, a lot of miniatures without the additional scenic elements.

A nice little batch of stretch goals have been unlocked and are available as add-ons in addition to being included in the pledge levels.

In 73BC the unthinkable occurred in the Roman Empire. Whilst the bulk of the army was in Spain fighting the 3rd Mithradatic uprising, a small band of gladiators escaped, killing their masters and seizing weapons as they fled. They then proceeded to raid and free other slaves which swelled the numbers in their small rebellion. Soon a sizable army had been formed, which had defeated everything Rome could throw at them, until in 71BC, Crassus caught them with their backs to the Mediterranean following a betrayal by the pirates who had been paid to give them passage from Italy.

Following the inevitable defeat of this army, 2000 men were crucified along the Appian Way, with the last to be hoisted to his cross, Spartacus, the Thracian who had led the revolt from the beginning and had challenged the might of the Roman Republic.

This army is recreated in these finely detailed 28mm miniatures from Templar Wargames.

This terrain kit will take care of every table’s needs. A massive modular cathedral constructed oh heavy duty card and plastic clips, this could make a great terrain piece for Carnevale or Circle of blood or any gothic setting sci-fi game.

This nice little package of #D Print files contains all the buildings you could wish to add to a western township. From Dead Man’s Hand to Wild West Exodus, these are a must for any western gamer who is building a print library. If you are not, you should be, printers are only going up in quality and down in price. So get on board now, or add to your print library with these great looking buildings.

The ultimate goal is the American model 4-6-0 10 Wheeler steam train to go with the station. Plaenty of really great stretch goals and some fabulous ideas for expanding past the outskirts of town into the plains and hills.
