Sunday Round-up

After my failed escape attempt last week I was confined to my cell...


...ironically that gave me plenty of time to create some blog articles on various Malifaux denizens which I smuggled out using methods I'd rather not describe here...anyway...I managed to create features on the Bunraku, Corrupted Hounds, Mysterious Emissary and Shadow Emissary...


...I believe my captors have some hard labour planned for me next week which may make article writing a bit tricky. My next escape plan is therefore going to involve leaving reality altogether via a trip into the Aetherium...


...time as ever is an issue and I was hoping to make some progress on these from Raging Heroes but it looks like that might be bordering on wishful thinking.


Thoughts and comments are (as usual) most welcome.

North Star Newsletter

The latest releases from North Star Figures...

I'll wish you all a Merry Christmas first of all, we will have another newsletter before the big day, but it doesn't harm to say it twice.
Photo of What the Dickens? (Xmas4)Photo of Father Christmas and Lovely Assistant (xmas2)Our much reduced St Nicks Grotto is still going; it'll close the week before Christmas, so you've a few weeks still to buy some of our Festive miniatures.

So if you want one for Christmas, snap it up now.
As always, we've lots of new stuff to show you this newsletter, all of it is of note but one especially for Ancient/ Medievalplayers is 'Swordpoint'. This is Gripping Beast's new wargame for big battles. You may have seen me in a recent Wargames Soldiers and Strategy article playing it with the editor of that magazine. I enjoyed the game a lot. Not knowing how to play beforehand, my plan was to use the Russian army as it would have performed historically against Teutonic Knights, which I did and I won. I felt that was a great endorsement for the game play of Swordpoint. Try it for yourself!
Thanks

Chosen MenChosen Men
Military Skirmish Games in the Napoleonic Wars
Chosen Men is a set of fast-action skirmish rules detailing the bloody skirmishes between light troops in the Napoleonic Wars. The primary focus of the game is on soldiers and NCOs in light 'flank' companies, as they scout ahead of larger forces and take part in man-to-man actions against enemy skirmishers.

Imagine a world where all of your deepest fears have come to life, a place where monsters, terrifying creatures and deviant criminals threaten your very existence and that of the entire planet.
In Arkeo Obskura a handful of heroes (from the Modern or Victorian eras or even from the early 1900s) face incredible adventures populated by zombies, witches, mummies, ghosts, the forgotten, aliens... The game system is easy to learn and intuitive and you don’t need a GamesMaster.

Virus CrisisVirus CrisisIn a secret laboratory, hidden in the heart of the equatorial forest, government scientists are testing new virus-strains on human guinea pigs... After much experimentation, a particularly effective strain has been identified: those infected become extremely aggressive, very contagious and suffer incredible mutations...
Fly AwayThe mission inside the Lab didn’t stop the virus from spreading. An infected nurse made the most of the confusion and broke through the gates, escaping to the nearest town, a place called Serenidad. The virus is much more virulent than expected and within a few days the whole town was infected. The strain has mutated and has become even more lethal.
