Flying Pig Games: "A Most Fearful Sacrifice" American Civil War Wargame Discounted!


Flying Pig Games: It's early on July 1st, 1863, and Union Brigadier General John Buford’s 1st Reserve Cavalry Division is deployed to the west of the town of Gettysburg battling unidentified Confederate infantry advancing on the town. All morning long, the men in gray have pressured the Union cavalry. Help finally arrives in the form of I Corps commander Major Gen. John Reynolds. He rides up to the Lutheran Seminary, where Buford is directing the battle from its cupola. Reynolds calls to Buford, "What goes, John?". The cavalryman simply points to the long lines of advancing Confederates and says, "The Devil's to pay!". Reynolds then asks, "Can you hold?", to which Buford responds, "I reckon I can." Reynolds ends the exchange with, “Let’s ride out and see all about it”. And with that rather brief, mundane conversation began one of the most important and iconic military engagements in history – the Battle of Gettysburg. Check this discounted game now here

A Most Fearful Sacrifice is an epic two-player wargame with over 15 square feet of playing area and 526 playing pieces depicting the fighting that occurred during all three days of this decisive clash. The game utilizes a new ACW operating system called the Black Swan system, which is closely related to the popular Blind Swords game system first introduced in the game The Devil’s To Pay! by Tiny Battle Publishing. This version of the system is specifically designed to handle larger-scale battles yet keep rules overhead low. Players can simulate huge encounters in a reasonable amount of playing time. This is accomplished in one way through the use of card draws rather than chit pulls. Also, players will trigger activations by Corps instead of by lower-level formations but they still have tactical decision-making choices by needing to determine which Divisions get activation priority. Though at a grander scale, this system maintains a tactical feel about it and still emphasizes the three “FOW’s” of war … the Fortunes of War, the Friction of War and the Fog of War. Players will be challenged to deal with a constantly developing battle situation, never quite sure of what the Gods of War will throw at them, and thus they must always be prepared to deal with historically realistic “black swan” events.

Grey For Now Games: New 02 Hundred Hours Game & Hard-Plastic WWII German Sentries & British Commandos!


Grey For Now Games: 02 Hundred Hours is a fast paced game with roughly 10-20 models on either side. The game’s Alert system makes stealth a core part of the action – spotting your enemy in the darkness is key to victory! Available for pre-order with the new miniatures!

Field an elite force of SAS Commandos to infiltrate the enemy lines under cover of darkness. Recruit SOE spies and local resistance fighters to bolster your chances. Sneak past sentries, take them out with silent attacks, or open fire with a devastating ambush. Plant charges to destroy your objective, assassinate a target or grab vital intel, then fight your way to safety before reinforcements arrive. Or play as the defenders, carefully setting patrol routes so your sentries can spot raiders in the shadows, utilise guard dogs, officers or even the dreaded Gestapo and make use of informants and intercepted transmissions to thwart the attackers’ plans.




Brand New Hard-Plastic & Multi-Part Miniatures!

Now also available are the official plastic miniatures in partnership with Wargames Atlantic - SAS in North European kit. Equipment includes: Sten guns, Tommy guns, Lee-Enfield rifles (with scoped version), Bren gun, Welrod pistol, De Lisle carbine, Fairbairn-Sykes fighting knives, demo charge and radio operator. Note that there are also metal character miniatures available at Grey For Now Games.






Heer sentries, officers, Feldgendarmes (military police) and guard dog handlers. Armed with 'Mauser' rifles, MP40 SMGs and Luger pistols, you can also make figures with torches, binoculars, smoking a cigarette, checking papers, carrying their helmet, saluting and even surrendering!








Victrix: Napoleonic's Restock and French Dragoons Pre-Release!


Victrix: Product announcement: Napoleonic's restock and French Dragoons pre-release! After a period of being sold out, we are receiving a big restock of all Napoleonic sets this Friday. We are also happy to announce that the Napoleonic French Dragoons will be available for pre-release on the same day. The test shots are in, and they are looking great! This will allow you to take advantage of our current prices before they change on June 1st.

This set includes: 12 figures including an officer, musician and sapper, multiple head variations (giving the option between line or Elite companies). The French Dragoons are a truly dynamic set which convey the ferocity of cavalry going into action, waving or levelling their sabres for the charge. These Dragoons have been done in the pre-Bardin regulation uniform which has the long tailed coat. This was supposed to have been replaced by the short tailed jacket in 1812 but many continued to wear the long tails well into 1813. These miniatures can easily be used for the invasion of Russia in 1812 and the battle of Leipzig in 1813. Dragoon regiments had Elite companies which were distinguished by fringed epaulettes and quite often bearskin headdress.
