Battlefront Previews 15mm Desert Rats and Afrika Korps for Flames of War

March 28th, 2017

Battlefront have given previews of the Desert Rats and the Afrika Korps for use with Flames of War 15mm Miniatures WW2 Wargames.

The Desert Rats are the only thing standing in the way of Axis conquest of North Africa. Despite suffering repeated defeats at the hands of Rommel’s Afrika Korps, they remain undaunted. Their speedy Crusader and Honey tanks can run circles around their opposition, backed up by the heavier Grant squadrons. Their motorised infantry are equally adept in attack or defence. With support from the Royal Artillery and the Desert Air Force, they are a formidable and versatile force.

The German Afrika Korps is a hard-fighting force of tough veteran troops who have won many battles and expect to win many more. Their Panzer III and Panzer IV tanks outclass the British tanks they face, and have been steadily upgraded to maintain their edge over the opposition. Their infantry are organised to have ‘few men, many weapons’, so they pack a ferocious punch whether facing infantry or tanks. These are backed by the famous ‘88? dual-purpose anti-tank/anti-aircraft gun and the Stuka dive bomber.

Megatherium, from the Greek mega (“great”) and therion (“beast”) was a genus of elephant-sized ground sloths endemic to South America. Often called the giant ground sloth, megatheriums were believed to have lived from the Early Pliocene through the end of the Pleistocene. The giant sloth’s size was exceeded by only a few other land mammals, including mammoths and Paraceratherium.

Ninja Division and Paizo Announce Starfinder Miniatures Collection

March 20th, 2017

Ninja Division Publishing LLC. and Paizo Inc. are proud to announce the Starfinder Miniatures collection – the first officially licensed miniatures for the epic campaigns and adventures that players, worldwide, will start experiencing with the launch of the Starfinder® RPG.

Set thousands of years in Pathfinder’s future, the Starfinder RPG is a stand-alone science fantasy game evolved from the Pathfinder RPG rules in which players take on the role of a ragtag starship crew exploring the countless mysteries of a weird galaxy.  Starfinder is also designed to integrate easily with the Pathfinder RPG, allowing players of either game to port over monsters, items, and adventures with a minimal conversion effort.

Ninja Division is proud to announce a partnership with Paizo Inc. to bring fans of Starfinder an exciting range of pre-painted miniatures to accompany players on their Starfinder adventures. With painstaking detail and coloring, these pre-painted miniatures bring the heroic crews and explorers from Starfinder to life. The range of pre-painted miniatures will include both adventurers and the ships they use to traverse space, both scaled appropriately to use as gameplay pieces for their unique roles in the Starfinder game system.

Ninja Division Creative Director John Cadice comments: “Ninja Division has been working hard with Paizo to create a line of pre-painted miniatures for gamers. We are all fans of miniatures here, and lovers of Paizo’s fantastic RPG worlds. Starfinder has not disappointed in the richness of the races and designs we get to help bring to life for players.”
Paizo Inc., publisher of the award-winning Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and Pathfinder Adventure Card Game, announces today the initial product line-up for the highly anticipated Starfinder Roleplaying Game, the new science fantasy RPG set in the world of Pathfinder, ready for blast-off at Gen Con Indy August 2017.

Starfinder Creative Director James L. Sutter says: “The sculpts that Ninja Division have been creating for both characters and starships have been blowing our minds with their artistry and obvious love of the genre. I’m especially excited about the ships—I can’t wait to see the looks on my players’ faces the first time I pull out a bunch of the starship miniatures for a space battle!”

CMON Announces A Song of Ice and Fire

March 16th, 2017

CMON Limited is proud to announce its exciting new project A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game based on the beloved novels by George R.R. Martin in cooperation with Dark Sword Miniatures, Inc. Heading to Kickstarter in Q3 of 2017 and retail stores in 2018, this new miniatures wargame allows fans to enter the world of the novels and control units of troops and heroes with easy to pick-up rules and fast-paced, brutal gameplay.

Since the A Song of Ice and Fire series was first published in 1996, fans from around the world have fallen in love with the amazing lands of Westeros and Essos and the iconic characters that inhabit them. CMON’s new tabletop miniatures game brings the conflicts set in those lands and the beloved characters to life with gorgeous, pre-assembled miniatures that make picking up and playing the game a breeze right out of the box. Gameplay is strategic yet easy to learn, meaning players will get to the battles as quickly as possible.

Jim Ludwig, Founder and President of Dark Sword Miniatures, Inc., commented on the partnership leading to the creation of the game: “I have been a big fan of what CMON has done in the tabletop miniatures space since 2004. Their expertise in plastic miniature production and their extensive body of work with both board games and tabletop miniatures games, that not only look amazing but are actually fun to play, made it an easy choice on who to collaborate with on this project.”

CMON’s Founder and President, David Doust, explains, “CMON’s relationship with Dark Sword dates back over a decade, and we have contemplated a more serious collaboration for a very long time. This project allows us to dig deep into George R.R. Martin’s mind and recreate the iconic battles from his award-winning novels on the tabletop.”

The A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game lets players take control of their favorite Houses from the novels, represented by trays of high-quality, pre-assembled miniatures, and lead them into battle against their opponents. Players can recreate their favorite moments from the series or create their own stories. What if the Red Wedding never happened, and Robb Stark assaulted King’s Landing? Now fans can find out!

Battles can range from large-scale wars with hundreds of miniatures, to simple skirmishes between a few units without complicating the elegantly designed rules. The game features several unique systems, including alternating activations that keep the players engaged; a Rank System that changes a unit’s capabilities as the battle rages on; a Tactics System that provides strategic powers fueled by a finite resource each round; and, most importantly, the iconic Heroes, such as Robb Stark and Jaime Lannister, that can change the course of war both on and off the battlefield.

CMON is excited to reveal the game during the GAMA Trade Show 2017 and will have even more information before the launch of the A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game: Stark vs Lannister Starter Set on Kickstarter later in 2017, with a healthy lineup of regular retail releases and support to follow.
