Pen and Sword: Discounted Sci-Fi Skirmish Scenarios Book Pre-Order!


Pen and Sword: Welcome to The Sprawl… Sci-fi skirmishes are an increasingly popular genre of war game but they are more dependent than most on good scenarios to keep them varied and exciting. John Lambshead has taken the work out of scenario building. He presents a selection of thirty-six missions of varying complexity, each with clear objectives and victory conditions, a map showing set-up zones and some with special rules. Although they are set in his imagined dystopian city of Civitas Cavernum (aka The Sprawl), with its factions of Scavs, Proctors, Cultists and Corporates, the scenarios are designed to be adaptable to almost any setting and set of rules (including those published in the author’s One-hour Skirmish Wargames). In addition, there are no less than three mini-campaigns that link the scenarios together in various combinations.

But that is not all. John Lambshead gives advice on designing your own scenarios and campaigns and there is even a set of tables allowing you to quickly create them through random dice rolls, ensuring almost infinite variety to your games. Finally, there is a useful reference section listing websites of rules publishers and manufacturers of suitable miniatures and model terrain. Welcome to The Sprawl (but keep your gun close and your mask on). Check the discounted pre-order now here!

Carthage Must Be Destroyed: Heraldic Waterslide Decals for Wargaming Part 2 Kickstarter


Cathage Must Be Destroyed: Hello everyone! The first Heraldic Waterslide Decal Kickstarter was quite a hit, so I decided to continue on with the series and work on the next set of waterslide decals. I just launched the campaign page for the next batch and you can now follow it on Kickstarter. Here's some of my own models in my collection I've been experimenting using decals on. More images and details to come with the launch of the campaign. Check the Kickstarter here

In the first project I focused on a sort of Bretonnian style by presenting the decals in rows of 9. One row would give you a single colour of an animal or mythical creature and included the same image facing left 5 times while the other 4 images faced right. This time I've changed the format of the decal sheets - now instead of 9 of the same image with different facings there will only be 5 images and now a single row has 10 images total. That means that there are more image variations per sheet and there's more decals per sheet as well. Additionally, I've experimented and decided to include miniature versions of some of the decals that worked out in tracing for people who want to include multiples of the same image on a shield or banner. Finally, the main two sheets in the campaign will contain humans, plants, symbols, and weapons/equipment while the stretch goals focus entirely on unlocking a whole bunch of different crosses. This is my attempt to use different imagery instead of focusing just on animals and mythical beasts. More details and pictures to come with the launch of the campaign. The project is now live! Thank you everyone for checking it out.

Day of Battle Games and POD: New 28/40mm Medieval Knights and Dwarves!


Day of Battle Games and POD: The August release from Medbury Miniatures have arrived. In this release we have 4 new sets of mounted knights in 13th Century and 14th Century Armor and a host of new Dwarves including a Heaving Dwarves' Regiment and Wildmen Warrior's. Each set will be available in both 28mm and 40mm. Most sets include lances but these often should be replaced with wire or some other type of spear as they often bend in printing. 

Also included in the set is a Leader set of Sir Henry De Bohun - Wikipedia - "Sir Henry de Bohun (died 23 June 1314) was an English knight, the grandson of Humphrey de Bohun." These 13th and 14th century knights are being listed under their own category "Knights" as they are so useful for many areas and periods. Find the fantasy dwarves here and the cool historical knights here
