Brigade Models Release New EuroFed Spaceships

ReleaseWave1

May 28th, 2017

Brigade Models release their new European Federation spaceship models, replacing the old versions.

There are seven all-new digitally-sculpted ships along with two fighter types. Most of the models retain a similar outline to their predecessors, but are much changed in detail. The two largest vessels, the Milano and Umberto, have resin hulls while the rest are metal castings.

The remainder of the ships will be replaced with new versions in one or two further waves later this year, when we also hope to add one or two new classes as well. The other two fleet packs (401 and 403) will return when we have the ships to fill them again.

As if that wasn’t enough, the Kerberos has also been made available again. This model is a one-piece resin spacestation. In its basic form it is unarmed, but there are plenty of places to position turrets from one of our accessory packs (such as the new EuroFed triple turrets) should you wish to give it a defence capability.

Fantasy Flight Games Announces the Reanimate Archers Unit for Runewars

rwm08_box_left

May 23rd, 2017

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the Reanimate Archers Unit Expansion for Runewars Miniatures Game is available now!

The expansion features eight Reanimate Archer figures, enough to field a two-tray unit on its own or attach to a larger unit. These figures are identical to the ones found in the Runewars Miniatures Game Core Set and feature five new upgrade cards to help customize any army.

The Reanimate Archers are experts at ranged attacks, and the figures found in the Reanimate Archers Unit Expansion can be combined with the figures found in the core set to create a 32-point unit, or can be fielded on their own as an 18-point unit.

The arrows of the Reanimate Archers do more than puncture. They get inside their target’s skin, infecting them with rot and disease, represented by their ability to spend two surges to give their target a blight token when they make a ranged attack. Blight tokens can weaken opposing units by removing their die before an attack, and with the Reanimate Archer’s ability to add a free surge to their strikes with their modifier dial, it’s something they can accomplish often. Furthermore, the shambling bowmen are united in their service to Waiqar, and with the “Steadfast” keyword, it becomes difficult to shake their resolve with a doubt card during a morale test.

Fantasy Flight Games Announces Death Knights Expansion for Runewars

May 22nd, 2017

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the Death Knights Unit Expansion for Runewars Miniatures Game!

The Death Knights Unit Expansion features four Death Knight figures and two plastic cavalry movement trays for use with the forces of Waiqar, as well as five upgrade cards to customize your Runewars Miniatures Game armies. The expansion also includes panic, stun, and unit ID Tokens, alongside a new condition card and token, for use with a special new type of upgrade included with the Death Knights.

The Death Knights bring fear to all unfortunate enough to encounter them. Any time they collide with an opposing unit, the Impact keyword gives the opposing unit panic tokens equal to the number of stable energy runes on the field. Additional panic tokens immediately puts the Death Knights’ target at a disadvantage, and they’re now in position to be targeted by the Death Knights’ deadly melee attack—two red dice and one blue die.

The Death Knights also come with built-in defenses. Anytime an enemy unit targets them, a mortal strike is subtracted from the attack, which nearly ensures their hefty defense of three will have to be penetrated if the foes of Waiqar have any hope of taking the riders down. Furthermore, with the Steadfast [Fear] ability, the Death Knights are difficult to rattle, increasing the morale icon of fear cards by one during morale tests.

The figures and trays included in the Death Knights Unit Expansion can be fielded together for 24 points, and additional copies can be purchased to field 42 and 55 point units.

The mystic wizard brings the power of ancient runes to your infantry units, the mighty Champion leads soldiers to unlikely victories, the inspiring Cornicen brings discipline to wavering soldiers, and the unyielding Banner Guard reminds inspires formidable loyalty.

New Celestial Minis and Terrain Pieces coming from WizKids

ElfBWizard

May 13th, 2017

WizKids often receive feature and product line requests from players, and one such request that came up frequently was the desire to have high quality, yet affordable, unpainted miniatures.

As a leader in the pre-painted miniatures market, WizKids decided it was time to do something.

Last year we announced that we would be launching a brand new line of unpainted miniatures. These minis were going to be made the “WizKids way”, high quality with great attention to detail, yet affordable for everyone. Our way also includes bringing on board fantastic brands that we all know and love in addition to offering exclusive characters and monsters that tug at all of our heart strings.

The initial launch of WizKids Unpainted Miniatures lines brought the heroes and monsters from your RPG adventures to the tabletop like never before. After the premier of our unpainted lines, we were so overwhelmed by the positive feedback and reviews we received, that we couldn’t wait to do it all over again!

Today we are excited announce our plan to bring previously unavailable and long sought after creatures to our Dungeons & Dragons unpainted miniatures line, Nolzur’s Marvelous Miniatures.

Prepare to bring new races like the dragonborn, tiefling and genasi into your clan or customize your displacer beast, beholder or even Demogorgon to terrify the adventuring party with a plot twist. Now your characters and monsters can be as unique and creative as the adventure itself.

But that’s not all! Also plan to see the addition of fantastic unpainted, pre-primed, scenery pieces added to our Item Packs, available this Fall. Starting with the exclusive Dungeons & Dragons Ezmerelda’s wagon and plans for dozens of beautifully crafted terrain pieces, including a full campsite and more to come! With all of this great content releasing later this year, why let your paints dry up waiting for lesser quality, generic scenery pieces to come out from any other sources?

Fantasy Flight Games Announce Heavy Crossbowmen for Runewars

rwm20_spread

May 11th, 2017

Paragons of disciplined training and wielders of some of the most sophisticated military weaponry available, the heavy crossbowmen of the Daqan Lords represent one of the greatest defensive forces in Terrinoth. Armed with specially designed bulwark shields and heavy crossbows, these warriors can withstand even the fiercest hail of enemy fire while unleashing their own torrent of death. Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the Heavy Crossbowmen Unit Expansion for Runewars Miniatures Game!

Proficiency with the crossbow is not enough to qualify for a heavy crossbow unit, as only the largest and most physically imposing men and women have the great strength and stamina required to reload the crossbows and wield the thick wood and iron shields that complete these warriors’ arsenal. These bulwark shields are designed to withstand vicious attacks from axe and arrow alike while still allowing a large crossbow to rest securely on its edge, mitigating any compromise to accuracy. These shields were designed to provide the protection an archer shooting from a tower’s bulwark would have, while allowing for mobility on the field.

Whether motivated by duty or coin, Heavy Crossbowmen are integral to defending the Land of Steel from the forces of darkness at its borders.

Two Fat Lardies Taking Preorders for General d’Armee Now

GDA-1-768x919

May 9th, 2017

Two Fat Lardies have used veteran war gamer and greatly respected designer Henry Hyde to produce a set of rules which is easy on the eye and laid out in a manner which allows the gamer to get the information needed simply and with plenty of illustrations and examples of play.  This makes for a very good looking and highly functional book; always important in the heat of battle!

In addition to the 108 page rule book, General d’Armee, available for preorder now, also comes with two A4 size playsheets, both laid out in colour coded sections and laminated for longevity.

Since we published Pickett’s Charge, Dave’s ACW rules (which you can view here:  Pickett’s Charge) we have had lots of you asking if we could produce a set of game Tokens and Status Markers.  Well, we thought we kick off by producing a set for General d’Armee so you can really hit the ground running. These are in MDF and produced by our partners at Warbases.  You can paint them up or use them as they are if you’re impatient to get started!

To make life easy. we have put together two Advanced order options.  Firstly you can get the full set which includes the rules, the two laminated playsheets, two sets of tokens (one per side) and a free PDF of the rules.  PLEASE NOTE:  The PDF will be sent to you as soon as we release the rules on the 21st of May.  In fact we are at Partizan that day, so we will be sending out the PDFs on the next day.
