Herein you’ll learn the basics of moving and shooting before grasping more advanced concepts like command, morale and magic.

Wild West Exodus moves to Wayland Games

October 30th, 2016

Outlaw Miniatures has announced that Wayland Games will now be in charge of the Wild West Exodus game line.

The game has been around for several years now and while it continues to grow and evolve, the folks at Outlaw Miniatures have realized that they don’t have the time and staff to properly manage the game as it deserves.

Romeo Filip from Outlaw Miniatures will still be involved with character creation and some creative direction, but the reigns are being handed over to Wayland Games’ and their discretion.

From the announcement, “As many of you have noticed over the past few months our team has gone a bit silent. This silence in no way signaled an end of Wild West Exodus or the respected brand it has become. Actually, the exact opposite has been taking place in the deep underbelly of the Dr. Carpathian labs. Over the past 12 months I, as the creator of the game have realized I needed more help. I realized that it takes a team to build and progress a game like ours. A team much larger then what I personally was able to put together at Outlaw Miniature. I and the rest of our staff felt that if we wanted the game to be incredible that something would need to change.

The Great Labyrinth from Heroic Maps

April 5th, 2016

The builders of the Great Labyrinth are unknown, but the forbidding structure has stood for centuries, birthing dozens of legends, tales and stories. People say that the centre hides a great treasure, others a fearsome beast, others that it has no centre. Over the years various groups have used the Labyrinth for their own purposes. Lord Vantarg would send prisoners in and take bets on their survival, whilst the Thieves Guild of Heramar tested their initiates by ordering them to retrieve items hidden deep within. Most never returned from the deadly maze!

The Great Labyrinth is a printable rpg battlemap compatible with any RPG/Dungeon-Crawl or skirmish game from Heroic Maps. Use as a standalone gameboard, or combine with any same-scale tileset. The map is 50×50, equivalent to 25 of our standard 10×10 tiles.
Contains a large labyrinth, with winding passages, dead ends and some large rooms. Sinister statues, skulls and bone pits adorn the walls and floors.
Download includes:
250dpi A4 pdf map spread across 50 pages for easy printing.
250dpi full jpeg versions for VTT or poster printing

Donnybrook, the skirmish game rulebook now available

April 4th, 2016

The Donnybrook skirmish game by Clarence Harrison and Barry Hilton from Wordtwister Publishing is finally available in PDF in two formats:

High Resolution (300dpi)
This version has been configured for printing (and is pretty much the same file we sent to the… err… printer). It looks absolutely stunning on desktops and laptops. Like any PDF you can load it onto your tablet but with its large file size it makes viewing cumbersome.

Low Resolution (96dpi)
This pdf has been optimized for fast viewing on tablets. Like any PDF you CAN print this file but the 96dpi resolution may render less than satisfying results.

You can place your order at the League of Augsburg Shop.
