Antenociti's Workshop is giving us a sneak peak at their WIP the Happy Panda Noodles (one their Facebook Page) combined with their new Asian Fencing Set and Asian Statues which are up in their store. It is nice to see more architecture with an ethnic theme to it and for those of us who are running the Yu Jing (in Infinity) it is a great addition for some friendly turf fighting.

Just in case you happen to find your regular d6's a bit mundane for your tastes, Mini Mendis has a launched a Kickstarter for their Luma Dice.
Luma Dice are 19mm, aluminum dice, with LEDs (21 RBG each side with its own color), replaceable battery, motion detection (so you conserve battery power), and chamfer corners for more momentum. They are already funded and have 44 days to go still, plenty of time for you to get in on it.
Sally 4th is offering a 15% pre-order discount on their latest Terra Block Set: A Bar for All Seasons (shipping on Dec. 15th, 2015). This set covers a 60cm x 60cm (2-foot square) area with terrain just begging for an over the top bar fight.
If you are not familiar with this line of product, it is a pre-painted multi-genre terrain system for 28mm miniatures. The genre specific details that you would normally find on the walls are left off. While I could ramble on about this line of products they have a few videos to watch that illuminate what it is all about here.
Pictured below is the Terra Block Warehouse.
Litko Game Accessories is running a site wide 20% off sale that goes through Cyber Monday (November 30th, 2015). They carry a vast array of gaming materials from acrylic fire gauge sets that could be used for X-wing to 28mm modern buildings.
Pictured to the left is their 4-story Alessio's Pizzeria, with a footprint of 7.9 inches wide, by 10.6 inches long, and standing 10.4 inches tall. The building has modular so floors can be added or removed as desired. Different signs and blown out walls are available as well. This sort of flexibility is really nice and really allows you to create the game board you want.
Below is their Freestanding Double-Billboard Kit, it is 28mm scale, stands an impressive 9 inches tall and includes sample billboard inserts (printed in color, with peel-n-stick backing).
Obviously, I can't do justice to their full product range, however I can say that I have done business with them in the past and they are quality retailers!
For all of you DIYers, there are plenty of great posts from Terrainosaur Game Terrain & Scenery, like these Tar Pits! Which are comprised of thick plasticard bases, liberals amounts of hot glue and various bits and pieces glued to the bases finished off with multiple thick coats of gloss black paint!
From Paper Craft to full blown fantasy and sci fi scenery ideas and tutorials they got you covered. Best of all, at this time of year when everyone seems intent on separating you and your hard earned cash, this place is absolutely free! I hope that you will swing by, check them out and hopefully get inspired!
New from Warsenal!
This Product Contains one complete Cosmica Hallway Building, designed for Infinity the Game. It includes one Gamma Frame with one Cosmica Airlock Facade, two Cosmica Hallway Facades and one Cosmica Transfer Tunnel Facade along with one Cosmica Gamma Roof. Cosmica buildings are stackable to create Cosmica towers of varying heights.
All of the pieces are removable and we've left magnet holes in all the right places. This allows you to mix and match pieces from the entire Cosmica line.
Cosmica is the Nomad brand for near orbit and outland surface industrial construction.
Cosmica provides quick deployable and durable prospection and industrial modules allowing for construction of an orbital, asteroidal or outland facility in a record time.
Cosmica has been specially designed to be deployed in areas in which it is necessary to
develop a quick exploitation of the resources available in a short time period. In this
kind of high performance work endurance is compulsory. Cosmica offers the best quality materials and has made a name for itself in this area.
Cosmica is short for “Construcciones Cósmicas Ltda.” a Corregidor-based
company created at the beginning of the independence of this Nomad mothership. Cosmica has been a pioneer in the Nomad construction industry, profiting from the knowledge acquired by the Corregidor EVA workers in their daily work.
Using the feedback from the Nomads “meteor heads” Cosmica has forged a reputation
based on their company motto: “Simple and durable. Difficult to disable, easy to
This laser cut 3mm MDF / 1.5mm Acrylic piece comes unassembled and unpainted.
Antenocitis Workshop wants to clean up your Infinity wargame city and with their newly released E-Systems Garbage Point Boxset that is exactly what they will do. This box set contains the E-Systems Garbage Point, think of that as your trash hub. A centralized disposal point, fully automated completely with a compactor and dedicated garbage container at the rear.
Of course, first you have to collect the garbage and that is where the E-Systems Auto-Bins come in. These motorized wheelie bins are equipped with sensors to determine when it is time for them to head off to their local E-Systems Garbage Point, for emptying, after which they return to their original location.
You can purchase additional Auto-Bins separately, £7.50 ($11.27).
Sadly, even in the illuminated future not everyone is civilized enough to toss their rubbish into the proper receptacle. The VT-Sorisso Automated Road Sweeper is designed to keep are cities clean and beautiful. These robotic road sweepers will cycle a given area, emptying itself when needed at the local "Garbage Point".
Again, you can purchase additional sweepers for £7.50 ($11.27).
So you have held off on picking up one of those Osprey Games, for whatever reason you just couldn't justify it. Well, Osprey seems to understand but they just aren't going to make it easy on you to keep saying not now. This weekend they are offering 30% off of all their games! You can even get the discount on a pre-order copy of Dragon Rampant!
Maybe it is Bolt Action or Force on Force?
Field of Glory or Frostgrave?
It really doesn't matter as it is hard to imagine getting a better discount than this! Be it print or ebook, Osprey Games has you covered.
Press Release from Osprey Games.
Coming in October 2016, Osprey Games will be releasing the 75th Anniversary Edition of Escape From Colditz! Designed by Pat Reid, a British officer who escaped from the Colditz prisoner-of-war camp during World War II, and Brian Degas, writer of the iconic TV series based on Pat’s escape, it is often named as one of the greatest board games in British history.
This edition, published to coincide with the 75th anniversary of Pat Reid’s escape, will feature completely new art-
work painted by fan-favourite historical artist, Peter Dennis. Along with a complete set of wooden pieces, the box will include replicas of prisoner-of-war artefacts from Mr. Degas’ extensive collection!
Duncan Molloy, Osprey Games Developer, said: One of my main goals since joining Osprey Games was to bring this game back into print. It’s not just an iconic piece of game design, but an important touchstone in the history of British games and toys. I’ve been working closely with the original designer, Brian Degas, to ensure that this is the definitive edition of the game.
Philip Smith, Osprey Games Manager, added: Osprey Publishing has been creating highly illustrated military history books for four decades. The chance to bring all of that expertise to bear on one of the best-loved and most-respected military-themed board games is too good an opportunity to miss.
Escape from Colditz, 75th Anniversary Edition will be published October 2016 and retail for £49.99 / $65.00.
We have patiently waited for it but that time is done, Wave II is here! Now, they will feel the full might of the Empire! Umm...I mean...go Rebels.
You know how quickly these are going to sell out and then the long wait for the reprint and that slow boat from China. These are the ships that we need to truly capture the feel of just what it is too stand upon the command bridge and bring whatever type of justice you seek to a Galaxy far, far away!

First off, I want to wish everyone Happy Thanksgiving!
Got the turkey in the electric smoker, set to 225° F, with the soaked cherry wood chips and it is well on its way. Going to be a great day for it here in the New York Fingerlakes, no rain and around 56° F (which makes smoking a turkey that much easier). We started the Middle Earth Marathon last night, with An Unexpected Journey (Extended Edition) and will be continuing on today!
Of all the things that I am thankful for and there are many, my wife Susan, is number one. That may sound trite but over the last year and a half during my illness she has definitely gone above and beyond the call of duty!
46 days into the MacAttack001.com website and I am pleased to report that the number of visitors has been rapidly increasing along with bandwidth and visitor retention. Top countries in terms of bandwidth United States, Netherlands, Brazil, Canada, Great Britain. A special shout out to that one individual from the Ukraine that keeps stopping by!
This journey has been quite the learning experience, a far larger learning curve than I originally had envisioned. The big take away for me, is that this sort of effort is a marathon not a sprint. While I am sorting out SEO and deciphering how to earn Google’s trust, additional content has to be created. Gaming News right now is the biggest draw, mainly because it is being updated daily. However, the number of outbound links and the text to code ratio is not perhaps optimal for SEO. Bearing that in mind, I am going to be finishing up a rather meaty bit of content for the Pathfinder RPG specifically for Dungeon Masters. Teasing just a bit more, it currently has a page count of 281 in PDF form. At this point there is no art, I am going to be adding some black and white art.
How much art is there going to be?
Definitely, the cover, which is going to have to be something above and beyond. I want some additional art just not sure how much.
Another addition is going to be a Terrain section that will include a Gallery and Tutorials. Speaking on the subject Terrain Tutorials, if there is something particular that you want to see covered (i.e. scratch built trees, creating rock face for your hills, etc.), cast your vote in the comments or email me if you are shy.
An announcement from Spectre Miniatures Facebook page.
So.... We have an announcement. The rules development is going really well, but in order to make them as good as we possibly can do.... They will not be released by Christmas. We apologise for this, but have some seriously good stuff coming out that we think is well worth the wait..... Not long now!
What we are able to announce that we will produce a full rules set that is modern, clear, easy to play, realistic and fast moving.
It will be available online, and in high qu...ality hard copy.
And the best news is, we need playtesters now. These playtesters will be selected on merit, and will receive an electronic copy of the rules to test and give feedback on.
Those selected will be asked to provide feedback by a certain deadline (probably early Jan). Those who provide the feedback will then receive an exclusive, limited edition miniature that will be part of an amazing new range being released in the new year, as well as a horde of amazing other goodies for doing Sterling work. (see what we did there...)
To be considered, please message the Spectre FB account with details, reasons and extent of the playtesting you can and are willing to do.... And don't worry, we need the tiny, and the grand, the experienced and the new gamers, clubs and individuals.
Hit us up with comments and ideas below, and message us with your playtesting ideas and capabilities.
The Spectre Team.
4ground is giving a sneak peak at their upcoming 28mm sci-fi building...the Control Tower. While they don't specifically state that this is for the 28mm Jesserai line it seems reasonable to make the leap given the very similar style. One of the new design changes that this particular WIP has, is sliding doors instead of the standard swinging door. Hopefully it will be a style that proves popular enough to be standard.
It is also worth noting that starting on Thursday (11/26/2015) they are offering up 10% off of everything on their website if you enter the code BF2015. This code can be used with any of their sets and runs through to the morning of 12/01/2015.
Fantasy Arc has added the Large Side Room options for their impressive Bug Hunt Corridors line. You can opt for the Operations Room with a single entry point with a specially designed side corridor. Or the Utility Room which features a two-door layout and can entirely surrounded by corridor sections.
They have expanded their line from Complete Corridor Sets, which come in two flavors the Corridor Starter Set or the Corridor Advanced Set. Specialty Rooms, which has the Airlock, Cargo Hold, Narrow Side Room, 4-Door Side Room, 3-Door Side Room, 4-Way In-Line Room...well you get the idea! Specialty Corridors, which has the Interior Wall Pack, Stairwell Addition Pack, Wide Corridor Pack, Wide T-Intersection, the Wide 4-Way Intersection and more. The Bug Hunt Roofs with either the Starter Set Roofs or the Advanced Set Roofs along with roofs for all of the specialty corridors and rooms. Their line is incredibly complete and offers the discerning buyer the option to realize whatever sort of layout that they can envision!
Scenic Express is offering a plethora of web specials for this month. Including the Light Green Superleaf 16 oz. Shaker and the massive Aspen Yellow Superleak - 1 Gallon Superpak!
Another favorite is their Fall Leaf Superleaf 24 oz. Eco-Pak, which works great as forest litter and can be used on the underside of deciduous trees to add just a bit of shadow depth.
If you are not familiar with Scenery Express they carry a huge selection of materials for building model railroad layouts, which works great for wargaming and RPG terrain. When in doubt, stick with O scale products as it is far closer to our 28mm miniatures. I have done business with them on more than a score of occasions and never been disappointed!
"Great storms announce themselves with a single breeze." This my friends is that single breeze.
DRAGONLOCK™ (patent pending) is an all-new interlocking terrain system that allows you to create fully modular, multi-level 28mm scale dungeon terrain for your RPG or wargame on your home 3D printer. Individual pieces links to neighboring pieces with our exclusive DRAGONLOCK™ clips. Each set is delivered as a downloadable .stl file, and once you have the set, you can print as many pieces as you like and never run out or need to purchase more.
A standard wall piece costs around 45 cents in plastic to print yourself, far cheaper than factory made terrain! All of the models shown were printed at 100 micron resolution, a common standard on most economical 3D printers. A really nice starter printer that can print these files starts around $399 (see our F.A.Q. for more info on printers, printing costs, filaments, and more, over on the FDG website forums here: http://fatdragongames.proboards.com/board/21/3d-printing-dragonlock-terrain
This set includes:
• Straight Wall (universal)
• Straight Wall (variant)
• Narrow Pillar
• Doorway with movable/removable door
• 2×2″ Tile
• Stairs (includes adaptor for miniatures)
• DRAGONLOCK™ Clips
• Instruction Guide
I think that the 3d printer tech is moving very quickly to a place where exceptionally high quality printers are going to be relatively cheap. I am not sure that I agree with the $400 100 micron assertion that Fat Dragon is making. My research indicates that 3d printers in the $2,000 price range (like the MakerGear M2) are FAR more reliable, offer a greater variety of filament materials, and a level of resolution that miniature enthusiasts are looking for.
With that said though, up until this point, 3d printers and gaming were simply pie in the sky dreaming. This is the first viable step forward and I believe will completely alter miniature gaming! If you think that laser cutters have altered the landscape of miniature scenery over the last three years this is going to blow that out of the water!
At present, I am working on my Infinity Nomads, a customized version of BP Laser's MUB laser cut building, 4 dumpsters from CNC Miniature Workshop, testing out a repositionable custom bending form I designed for making laminate buildings...and now I am itching to get setup for Frostgrave! One of the things that I have noticed about Frostgrave is that it requires a fair amount of terrain, but then again...most skirmish games do. So I started looking about for some more odds and ends to dress up my gaming boards.
I chanced upon Other World Miniatures and their Dungeon Furniture which includes the following...
Not quite sure that I would put Slain Adventures into the furniture category of dungeon accessories but I can see how it might work.
In my mind, the undisputed master of fantasy dungeon dressing is Thomarillion. The sheer variety of items that he has is incredible, from classic fantasy to steampunk cogwheels, electric chair too a fully stocked wine-cellar. I really cannot do justice to the vast selection that he has available in just a single little blurb.
Having done business with them on multiple occasions I have never been disappointed!
