Black Pyramid Gaming: Regent Z - Supernatural Regency!

Black Pyramid Gaming: Unmentionables, Supernaturals, and Heroic daring-do in the Regency era. The period from 1795 to 1837, which includes the latter part of George III's reign and the reigns of his sons George IV and William IV, is sometimes regarded as the Regency era, characterised by distinctive trends in British architecture, literature, fashions, politics, and culture.

It is into this time-frame that Black Pyramid Gaming have thrown their resources of late, and we’re not stopping yet. Useable as role-playing figures or for skirmish wargaming, these figures are uniquely sculpted for use in the world of Regent Z, and are in 28mm scale. We shall also be furthering our use of resin casting with these newer figures, as it is significantly easier to cope with a more detailed sculpt than metal casting.

A perfect game system that could be used to play Regent Z scenarios is Jane Austen Zombie Killer by Partizan Press, which is set in exactly the kind of fictional world of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies into which Regent Z fits snugly, like a fist in a velvet glove. Another good system would be Chosen Men by Osprey Publishing, which is tailored to Napoleonic-era skirmishing and could work easily with a few house rules for magic and supernatural characters.

VOX-001 - The Scandalous Lady W
VOX-004 - Middlemarch Fencibles Committee 1
VOX-005 - Middlemarch Fencibles Militia 1 (in hats)

Solitary Division: The Panzer Dice - Eastern Front R&W Version

Solitary Division: 1943. Eastern Europe. The German Army is in retreat, but the war is not over. The Red Army troops have to fight great battles to free every kilometer against the German army. Wehrmacht soldiers, as well as fanatical SS soldiers, will put Stalin's army to the test and fight to defend the territory already won. The terrible Stuka planes of the Luftwaffe rule the skies to a nonexistent resistance in the skies, but the most challenging thing that the Soviets had to face were the powerful Panzer tanks, with their high firepower and efficient armor.

Still, the Russian soldiers were not afraid of this. Counted with its famous T-34, simpler and lighter than German armor, but easier to mass-build and repair in the field. They had the experience of the recent Battle of Kursk, where they learned to maneuver their tanks with efficiency and precision and identify the weak points of the Panzers; In addition, they were ingenious and knew how to repair the damage suffered by their T-34s, receiving the support of the populations they were releasing, where they found supplies for the combat of its infantry, as well as fuel for its armor and the recovery of ammunition on the part of some destroyed tanks.

Pendraken Miniatures: Popular 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.
