October 31st, 2016

Gale Force Nine are previewing some of the models for their new ww2 miniatures game TANKS, and this one is the M10 Lend-Lease expansion, set to release in November 2016.

The Lend-Lease program saw thousands of tanks supplied to the Soviet Union during the war. Amongst these were a small number of M10 tank destroyers that somehow found their way to the Eastern Front. Whilst not as heavily armed or armoured as some Soviet designs, the turret meant it was one of the few self-propelled guns that could not easily be outflanked.

This pack contains:
1x Unassembled M-10 (Lend-Lease) tank
1x M-10 (Lend-Lease) tank card
1x Hero card
2x Crew cards
2x Upgrade cards

Curse of Strahd Tarokka deck available now

Curse-of-Strahd

April 4th, 2016

Players can now get their hands on a physical tarroka deck of cards produced by Gale Force Nine. The tarokka deck is a powerful tool for both Madam Eva and for Dungeon Masters running the Curse of Strahd adventure, available now from Wizards of the Coast.

By using the tarokka deck to randomize locations within the adventure, Dungeon Masters can customize each party’s exploration of Barovia, allowing Curse of Strahd to be replayed for years to come.

In the cursed land of Barovia, the people are melancholy, misshapen and grotesque, living in fear of the wolves and other creatures that serve Strahd’s evil will. The only hope for the trapped adventurers is to heed the warnings of a mysterious fortune-teller named Madam Eva. Drawing random cards from her tarroka deck, she directs adventurers to search Strahd’s domain for artifacts and allies to help the master of Castle Ravenloft.

December 21st, 2015

Gale Force Nine announced they are publishing a new board game called Tyrants of the Underdark set in the Dungeons & Dragons’ Forgotten Realms universe from Wizards of the Coast.

From the same game design team that brought you Lords of Waterdeep, the new game pits 2 to 4 players against each other to take over territory in the tumultuous Underdark, mashing up deck-building mechanics with board control. Look for Tyrants of the Underdark to be available in Spring 2016.

Designed by Peter Lee and Rodney Thompson, Tyrants of the Underdark is a competitive board game in which you play as a drow house recruiting monsters, cultists and demons to aid you in controlling locations such as Menzoberranzan and Blingdenstone. Using power and influence as resources, Tyrants of the Underdark features multiple strategies you can use in crafting your deck of minions. Be the spymaster infiltrating your enemy’s strongholds or the deadly war-leader concentrating on assassinating enemy troops. No matter how you decide to play, whoever controls most of the Underdark at the end of the game wins, unless there’s some hidden strategy in play.

Preview two new Demon Lords D&D Collectors Edition miniatures from GF9

September 11th, 2015

Gale Force Nine has provided a preview of two new upcoming D&D Collectors Edition Demon Lord miniatures for the Rage of Demons adventures, Zuggtmoy and Graz’zt, the Prince of Pleasure.

Zuggtmoy’s only desire is to infect and control living creatures, bending them to her will and using them to spread her spores. Zuggtmoy’s cultists follow her unwittingly. Most are fungi-infused to some degree, whether through inhaling her mind-controlling spores or being transformed to the point where flesh and fungus become one. Such cultists are walking fungal extensions of Zuggtmoy’s will.

Known as the Prince of Pleasure, Graz’zt is a creature of debauchery and desire who strives to accumulate more power. He delights in ostentatious finery and pageantry, sating his decadent desires with subjects and consorts alike. He particularly relishes the spectacle of a self-indulgent person’s life collapsing into ruin
