Fought between 1754 and 1763, this conflict saw the French and British empires fighting for dominance of Canada and North America.

Inside this book, you will find a complete history of the conflict with details of every major battle fought between the two sides. Also included are details of the uniforms, organisation and commanders of the European armies, their colonial regulars and militias, and the various Native American tribes that supported or opposed them.

Artis Opus: Series D: Brush Set The Rebirth of Dry-Brushing... Kickstarter!


Artis Opus has launched their latest Kickstarter, this time to fund the Series D: Brush Set announced as the very rebirth of dry-brushing! Check this very popular new paint brushes Kickstarter now here

Following the successful completion of our previous project, Series S, and recent successful funding of Series M... We are proud to now launch our third brush range, Series D. The D, of course, stands for dry-brush! In its most simple form, dry-brushing is a painting technique that utilises the texture and volume of a model to pick up paint and highlight prominent details. This project is the result of questioning traditional tools and methods. For the first time ever, an alternatively designed drybrush has been produced purely for miniature painting. Series D rethinks and redefines drybrushing from the ground up.

Working in conjunction with two prolific and decorated painters and dry-brushing specialists, David Soper and Bohun, we are proud to have produced the finest quality dry-brushes that the miniature painting industry has ever seen. After 4 years of R&D, we are excited to finally bring you Series D: the rebirth of the dry-brush. With Series D brushes, you can achieve: Smoother volumes and flat areas, Perfect stippling, using the round head’s natural fade toward the edges, ‘Edge highlighting’ with minimal paint transfer on surrounding areas and more delicate dry-brushing, allowing for more subtlety, and looking after your models!

Steepled Hat Studios: New Horror Blood/ Butchered Dices and Discounted Desert Empire Tower Kickstarter!


Steepled Hat Studios: We want to print a number of very unique d6 dice that are gruesome looking as well as have a board game / comic book feel to them. These are dice covered in blood, eyes, brains, hearts, feet, hands, and even a severed head. Each image will be printed on the side of the dice where the six lies. Check the full Kickstarter here

Each dice cube will have artistic cartoon body parts, blood, and dots printed on each side. We plan to commission the use of a large scale UV-printer to clearly imprint the images on each side. UV technology allows us to print the dice out with accuracy and clarity. The images printed with UV are the highest weather(fade and water)resistant method we could make use of and the high quality ink dries quickly which should allow us to make and fulfil pledge rewards relatively swiftly. 

We designed the dice images on 16mm sides but simply printing an image on each side was not enough. We created the printing images on each dice face to slightly exceed 16mm so that when we print the blood splatter image at the edge of each side, the image extends past the side's edge slightly and on to the side next to it. This blends in with the blood pattern image on the side next to it and gives an effect that the blood is connected and "flows" from one side to the next. This looks more realistic compared to having single pools of unconnected blood on each side. 

Of course, we're also offering our 25/28mm Desert Empire Guard Tower for a great deal in this Kickstarter to further help fund the dice.  I think for wargamers that this deal is nice since it is only $55.00 CAD and includes Free shipping worldwide!

Pendraken Miniatures: Popular New Blitzkrieg Commander IV - World War Two Rules!


Pendraken Miniatures: Blitzkrieg Commander is one of the most popular WWII rulesets of the past decade with over 5000 copies sold so far. Our overriding intention with BKC-IV was to show a natural evolution from BCKII, retaining the best elements of BKC-III but at the same time remaining true to both the BKC tradition and the Commander series of rules mechanisms.  In addition, we’ve added new game mechanisms, incorporated several widely used, tried and tested ‘house rules’, as well as tidying up the army lists.  

The design of BKC-IV will allow players to choose between a more formalised and higher-level game, back (almost) to BCKI and BKCII in many ways; or to play a much more granular game, almost but not quite down to a skirmish level or 1:1 level game.  We have also added (by request) more Example Tables, for ease of play and quick reference.

Joseph A. McCullough: Popular Rangers of Shadow Deep: A Tabletop Adventure Fantasy Game


Joseph A. McCullough: A kingdom stands on the brink of destruction, as the vast realm called the Shadow Deep slowly swallows everything in its path. As the army fights to contain the tide of evil creatures teeming up out of the black clouds, the kingdom’s best soldiers, the rangers, must venture down into the shadows to gather information, rescue prisoners, and ambush enemy supply lines. It is a desperate fight against overwhelming odds, but every little victory brings another day of hope.

Rangers of Shadow Deep is a solo and co-operative tabletop miniatures game, in which players create their ranger, gather companions, and play through a series of missions in their fight to hold back the darkness. If their rangers survive, they will grow in power and ability, and be sent on more difficult, dangerous and intricate assignments. This book also includes the first supplement for the game, Burning Light. In this mission, the rangers must venture to ruined convent, searching for an ancient artefact. As they choose what order to explore the ruins, and thus the order in which scenarios are played, they must gather clues to the artefact’s location. But they must be quick, for the longer they remain, the more the forces of the Shadow Deep become aware of their presence. By the creator of Frostgrave and Ghost Archipelago. Now available from The Wargame Vault here

The Terrain Tutor: Terrain Essentials - An Essential Guide to Building Tabletop Terrain Kickstarter Ending!


The Terrain Tutor Kickstarter to fund the creation of a Terrain Essentials book is ending in less than 7 hours! Check the Kickstarter here for all details!

Mel Bose – The Terrain Tutor – has been building terrain for almost as long as he can remember. When he was five, Mel built playsets for his little green army men in the corner of the craft store his mother ran. He was often assisted by model railroaders who were regulars at the store and, by the time he saw his first White Dwarf magazine at age 15, Mel was primed for a life of building terrain.

Mel has traveled the world, as a medic in the army, a physiotherapist, and even a salesman. He has worked with people from all walks of life, and looked at things from many different perspectives. It is this approach that he brings to his successful YouTube channel (The Terrain Tutor, click the image below to check it out). For the last fiveyears, Mel has been able to make a living from sharinghis passion – teaching people everything he knows about building terrain for tabletopwargaming, for hobbyists, clubs, displays, and for dioramas – and it’s that passion and knowledge that he is bringing to this book, Terrain Essentials.

This Kickstarter campaign is to fund a printed version of the book – Terrain Essentials – a (now) 176-page book perfect to add to the collection of anyone with an interest in creating excellent tabletop terrain, regardless of purpose or the builder's ability.
