Warlord Games: Free Transmat Station with Beyond the Gates of Antares Starter Set

Warlord Games: Last week we announced we would be giving away a free Transmat Station to everyone who pre-orders from Warlord Games up until the launch.

Even though our friends Sarissa Precision donated a large quantity it has proven to be extremely popular with only 170 left at the time of writing. This Thursday we will be announcing the same pre-order deal on the Warlord Games main site and through a general newsletter to everyone - not just subscribers to IMTel, so we are expecting to run out very soon! 

As you are connected to IMTel we wanted to give you prior warning to make sure you don't miss out. Please note everyone who has so far placed a pre-order with Warlord Games will receive the free Transmat Station. Our friends at Sarissa Precision are currently working on more scenery products for Gates of Antares, ready for the launch and once again we would like to thank them for their donation!

Wayland Games: Portal: The Uncooperative Cake Acquistion Game and Discount Code

Wayland Games: Today we bring you the start of a second week of the PLUS5BONUS code, although this time it looks like you found a rock instead of a gem. No matter as it still grants you 5% off a £50 spend on our webstore.

The Portal board game has been previewed and opened all over the internet and looks like a stunning game. We have this up on our site for you to pre-order now, so if you fancy some uncooperative cake acquisition what are you waiting for?

With a grinding of gears and some uneasy rumbling, Aperture Laboratories has resumed testing! Your team of Test Subjects have entered the Lab and are ready to perform all sorts of important, dignified, and dangerous testing procedures… all in the pursuit of Cake! It’s a fun and funny fast-paced fight to the finish. And by finish, we mean your team probably died.

The Lab is an ever-changing conveyor belt of death and dismemberment. But scientific progress must be at the forefront of the mind of every good Test Subject. In this game of constantly shifting area control and cardplay, players move and Portal their Test Subjects to various Chambers in the Lab. At the end of each player’s turn, one of the Chambers on the end of the Lab gives way, plunging all Test Subjects on it into oblivion. But should your Test Subjects have numbered greater than all others in the falling Chamber, they earn you some wonderful parting gifts, which can include Cake.

Yet, these moist slices of industrial-grade Cake must be stored in the Lab, where they are at risk of falling into said oblivion. Not to mention that your jealous opponents can pick up your Cake and move it closer to that precipice. He who has acquired the most Cake when a team has lost its last Test Subject is the winner. Do you risk gathering Cake early for a quick win? Or do you bide your time and wait until you can protect it better? Win the game and prove the Cake was no lie.

Heroic Maps: Halloween Sale‏ Launched - Selected Gaming Maps 50% Off

Heroic Maps: It's coming up to Halloween, and as you may have seen on Drivethru or in our email newsletter, we're having a Halloween sale!

So, if you're planning a spooky adventure, you could check out the sale at Drivethru by clicking the link here. We also thought it would be nice to show some of the artwork from the four new maps.

Kittywitch Woods is a giant map (50x50), and comes in both day and night versions. It's a classic haunted forest, with mist, graves, gnarled trees and spooky glowing lights. The DeMorteval Mausoleum features a Gothic-style family mausoleum building in a misty cemetery, with graves, cobwebs and candles. Finally, the Vampire Nest is a cave map in both day and night versions, with a small blood-soaked altar in one cave, and a creepy room of vampire coffins in another, surrounded by bones of countless victims. So, these maps and others are on sale for the rest of the month. Happy Halloween!

Diehard Miniatures: Tim Prow Oldhammer Fantasy Miniatures Kickstarter

Diehard Miniatures: Our aim is to give you high quality sculpts with more than a nod to the past. Combining 'Oldhammer' with new cutting edge designs!

This Kickstarter will allow Diehard Miniatures to fund production of 9 Oldhammer fantasy factions, each of which will have 6 miniatures, tiered from small to large. Our funding level will start with the first 3 figures (warrior, spell caster and ogre sized character), once we hit our target it will unlock the stretch goal levels. It is then down to you to see how far we can push these goals and unlock more beautifully crafted models! Freebies will also be interspersed throughout the stretch goals!

All the models featured here will be high quality, pewter castings. Most will be multiple part models that will require assembly. Some of the larger models (most figures that come on the final tier) will be cast in resin to reduce weight. A quick disclaimer: All models will come with basic plastic slotted bases, and will be unpainted. Bases shown with the painted figures have been supplied courtesy of Fenris Games.
