Update on Hell Dorado Kickstarter by Cipher Studios

A little bit of information on the Hell Dorado Kickstarter has been revealed by Cipher Kai on their forums.  Here is what he had to say about it:

Just a quick update on the Kickstarter.  We are working hard on making this a great campaign that will excite the audience and offer great incentive to jump in and get back to the Hell Dorado universe.

We’re recovering from our last Kickstarter: Gate of Memories.  These campaigns are pretty intense.

We are working on the video and are in the editing phase.  We’re developing cool pledge levels, add ons, and stretch goals.

A few more elements and we’ll be ready to launch in February.

A few posts later, it was mentioned that a hardcover rule book will be part of the Kickstarter campaign!

I look forward to this as I love the models and the game, and since it’s resurrection, we’ve been waiting for some more “oomph” to add to the game.


Tor Gaming’s Relics Kickstarter Reinforcements- Stretch Goal # 1 Models

Finally, a last image of some stretch goals for Tor Gaming’s Relics range of miniatures.  Their Kickstarter should start within the day, but I wanted to make one last post and get everyone excited.

Below you will find the first stretch goals for each of the four factions; Britanan, Orcnar, Nuem, and Vaettir.

Enjoy the preview artwork!

Now, it’s off to bed to hopefully wake up to a new Kickstarter!


Relics Reinforcements Kickstarter Green Greens Preview

Since Mr.  Moorcroft, owner of Tor Gaming, gave me a sneak peek at the Kickstarter page, I thought it would be good to post up the beginnings of the new sculpts for his game, Relics.  They aren’t officially greens yet, as they are just started, so they are “green” greens!



The Bomber


Ornar Nappa


Nuem Degener


Vaettir Hunta

From the Kickstarter page:

All the models produced because of this project will not instantly be released for general purchase. They will go towards building a good release schedule going forward.

However, as the models are achieved on the project, we will add them to the shopping lists (see below) and if you choose them as part of you perk, you will get them once they are sculpted and cast! That means it’s possible you could have the sculpts months before they are officially available!

They look great so far, and I can’t wait to see the finished project.  No, do I buy into the Vaettir or the Nuem???

I’ll be posting up additional information on Saturday and Sunday as a lead into the new Kickstarter with a link to the page when it goes live.

Tor Gaming Announces Relics Reinforcements Kickstarter

Tor Gaming recently announced a new Kickstarter for their miniature game, Relics, called Relics Reinforcements.  The Kickstarter will go live on Monday and there is a new page with countdown available found HERE for those that want to know when it will go live.


Gavin Moorcroft, owner of Tor Gaming, mentions this about the upcoming Kickstarter:

“…the Kickstarter will be to fund the creation of the sculpts for outstanding profiles from the rulebook, which is about 19 packs.  But, we aren’t going for it in one go, the main target will be for four packs, one from each race in the game. Then each stretch goal will add another four packs to the list funded.

If it goes totally crazy, we will add as yet unreleased profiles to the project and therefore expand the profiles available for the current races.

The perks will be pretty open, giving the backer up to 30% return on their pledge – so if you pledge x, you get x+30% to spend on the relics range. The available items to choose from will expand as we hit targets.

The sculpts funded by the project WILL NOT go on general sale but rather slot into a release schedule that if it funds well could be over a years worth of releases! So, by backing the project the backers get access to these models months before they are available on general release!”

Below you will find an official announcement about this new Kickstarter as well as some sneak peek previews of the models that will become available.


The project sounds like a great concept and I’m planning on participating to get my first Relics models and when I do I’m hoping for a review on the quality of the models and the sculpts!

AE-WWII: European Theater by Blackball Games, Inc. » Add Ons! — Kickstarter.

Blackball Games just upped the ante on their Kickstarter with several add ons.

If you haven’t backed this game yet, you need to do it now.  Let’s see the revised edition of this game get published and going strong on the market.

AE-WWII: European Theater Vampire Update

AE-WWII: European Theater by Blackball Games,  has just added a new reward for everyone who is backing at the $130 level which is the rulebook and a detachment of your choice.

SS Vampire Green

Here’s the quote from the update:

The occult atrocities of the SS know no bounds!  As Operation: Kickstart nears its halfway point, Allied progress has slowed.  Reports are coming in that this is due in no small part to an increase in sightings of bloodsucking fiends across Europe.  Sketchy reports have come in over the past few years, but it is now terribly clear that the SS have legions of vampiric soldiers at their disposal.  Leading small squads of Waffen SS, these creatures have slowed the progress of the Allied resupply operation.  Allied commanders are offering a cash bounty for the confirmed destruction of any of these occult horrors.  Do your part!  Operation: Kickstart cannot succeed while these parasites roam the battlefield!

Things have slowed down considerably and in a shameless attempt to bolster interest (and funding) the Axis is throwing in their lot to the campaign.  We’ve dug up (get it?) the green for the SS Vampire and have decided to include one of these models for every backer at the Lieutenant level and higher!  This is not a stretch goal!  We want to thank those of you that have stuck with us and encourage everyone to continue spreading the word about the project.  If the project is successfully funded everyone at the Lieutenant level and higher will get a nasty SS Vampire to fight against (or with)!  Thanks a lot everyone!

Games & Gears, New Company, Has New Game Boards and Kickstarter

 Games & Gears, a new company, has a Kickstarter for their new board tiles.

Each tile is 12″x12″ with various “designs” and textures for different gaming environments.

From what I’ve seen online, they look pretty good.  Not sure how durable they are or how well they stay put when gaming, but they are something I’m interested in.  I don’t think I’ll back them as yet, as I would 9 of these tiles to create a board of the size I’d like.

Mr. Card Game by Evertide Games

Mr. Card Game by Evertide Games.

How many of you have heard of the Kingdom of Loathing (KOL)? It’s an online spoof of online and tabletop RPGs.  It’s got a lot of humor and you probably should be a fellow geek to get in on the jokes.

Mr. Card Game Box Art

However, Evertide Games has taken that aspect (the online part) and made a card game!

The Kickstarter is long gone (I just now found out about it), but have fond memories of the Kingdom of Loathing.

Anyway, Evertide Games is taking ‘preorders’ from the first print run, which will include all of the bonuses from the KS.  So, jump on over to Evertide Games’ website, click the Mr. Card Game link at the top, then the preorder link.

It’s got to be a good game just for the humor!

Blackball Games Post Info About AE:WWII

Matthew Hope of Blackball Games talks more about the AE:WWII line and the future plans on their facebook page:

Two AE-WWII announcements today,

First, and most exciting, we are officially announcing the next edition of the game, titled AE-WWII: European Theater. We are planning an all-new 250 page, full-color book with revised rules, updated units, and new surprises. This edition will combine the groundwork from both the core book and the occult book of the first edition, and streamline everything into a
more cohesive collection. The revised rules are based on the originals, with a few tweaks to speed things up and improve balance. We’ve learned a lot over the four years since the first edition – all of that learning is going into the second. We are targeting an MSRP of $50 for the book, and a spring ’13 release date. You’ll hear more many more details on the new book as well as a few other goodies over the next week or so, stay tuned. Big things are coming for AE:WWII.

Secondly, we have finished our integration of the existing product line for AE:WWII with Blackball, and have updated everything on our web store. We needed to increase some of the prices. This brings everything in line with the new production facility, and our new formulas for making sure there is room for retail and wholesale discounts. Most of the products are back in stock now, so head on over to http://www.blackballgames.com/now and take a look!

Thanks again for believing in the products and supporting Blackball as we make AE-WWII bigger than ever, and twice as bad-ass….

The Blackball Team

Im looking forward to what this means for AE:WWII as it’s a great game.  The new book appears to take all three rulebooks and rolls them into one, which is great.

Tercio Creativo1650’s rulebook — Indiegogo Campaign

Here’s the link to the 1650’s rulebook — Indiegogo campaign by Tercio Creativo, an awesome small time publisher of miniatures who wants to print their 1650 rulebook in English and Spanish.

If they meet the funding goal, you will get at least five extra minis at any/every level, which is awesome.  Here are some images of their current mini line:

Awesome stuff.  Free shipping, great sculpts, and great price.  What’s not to love.  The rulebook, cards, and more are available as a free download as well from their web forums, found here: http://foro.terciocreativo.com/viewforum.php?f=10

I’ve not played a game, but the minis are just great looking with exquisite details.  So, show your support of indie publishers with great ideas and go back this project!
