Gripping Beast: New Saga Zombie Revenant Faction Revealed

Posted on April 15th, 2015 under , , , . Posted by

Gripping Beast: SAGA: Revenants is a new Faction for the SAGA game system. It is for use with the main rules in the SAGA Dark Age Skirmishes or SAGA The Crescent & The Cross rulebooks. Please note that this faction is not part of the main SAGA canon and as such is not for tournament play.
It is designed to give you something different and fun to play between friends or at friendly club meetings. We hope you enjoy it! This faction has its basis in the myths, legends, sagas and superstitions of the Early Middle Ages and gives form to a belief in the supernatural, in particular the art of Necromancy, that in our more ‘enlightened’ times we might call fantastical. 
But not so to the Early Middle Age mind. The term Revenant would have been widely known across the Western Europe of our period and is a catch-all term for visible ghosts or animated corpses returned from the grave to terrorize the living. 

The word “revenant” is derived from the Latin, reveniens, “returning” (the French verb ‘revenir’, means “to come back”). We have deliberately not written much by way of ‘fluff’ for the faction so, with a little research, you can adapt it for use in games against any of the Dark Age or Crusades factions. For example, the Norse tradition of Seidr sorcery features many examples of necromancy and the Draugar (Again-Walkers). In the Saga of King Hrolf Kraki, the half-elf witch Skuld was so powerful that, during battle, when her devoted warriors were cut down, she would raise them up to continue the fight. Very handy. Irish mythology has the ‘Neamh Mairbh’ returning from the dead and the Welsh Mabinogion tells of the Cauldron of Rebirth in which dead warriors could be placed and then be returned to life, voiceless and soulless, to fight again. Tales brought back by the Crusaders were rife with stories of Saracen Sorcerers with power over the dead and typically, the Templars were often accused of practising dark arts.
Limited Edition Box Set containing:
  • 48 x Revenant 28mm metal figures (plus a plastic base for each figure)
  • 2 x metal Grave Pit models
  • Full colour 3 page Revenant faction rules & scenario (Exclusive to this box set)

Northstar Miniatures: Some Interesting Frostgrave Nickstarter Details and Wizard Preview

Posted on April 14th, 2015 under , , , , , . Posted by

Northstar Miniatures: Hey you, Amazon buyer!! Don’t buy your Frostgrave rulebook from them. If you buy it from North Star, you’ll get a pile of goodies to go with it. If you still want to order from them ‘cus it’s £2 cheaper, well maybe we don’t want your custom, we’ll keep the pressies for our real friends. 
Every book will come with 6 official Treasure Tokens. A player needs 3 to play the game. They will be sculpted pieces of treasure cast in resin. More importantly, the book will be in each Nickstarter commitment level/ pledge. So you won’t be able to buy into the Nickstarter and it’s advantages without getting a book.
In this fantasy skirmish wargame, wizards battle amidst the frozen ruins of an ancient city, in the hopes of discovering the treasures of a fallen empire. Players take on the roles of wizards from one of ten schools of magic, and build their bands of followers. While the wizard’s apprentice will usually accompany his master, more than a dozen other henchmen types are available for hire, from lowly thugs to heavily armoured knights and stealthy assassins. 
Wizards can build their magical knowledge by unlocking ancient secrets, with the potential to learn up to 80 different spells. As players gain power and wealth, they can develop their headquarters on the outskirts of the city, turning basic locations into bastions of their art and equipping them with alchemical laboratories, mystical forges, astronomical telescopes and other magical resources. While individual games of Frostgrave are quick and can easily be played in an hour or two, it is by connecting these games into an ongoing campaign that players will find the most enjoyment. The scenarios given in the book are merely the beginning of the limitless, thrilling adventures that can be found amidst the ruins of the lost city.

Pulposaurus Entertainment: Crom: Conan Rise of Monsters Miniature Game Preview

Posted on April 13th, 2015 under , , , , . Posted by

Pulposaurus Entertainment: “Conan: Rise of Monsters is a new mass-combat miniatures game featuring exquisite 28mm plastic pre-painted figures. Each starter box presents a complete tabletop miniatures game with rules, special dice, cards and markers as well as a complete starter army for either Conan and his Circle of Iron or Thoth-Amon and his Legion of Set. Starter army boxes will be supplemented with additional warbands, leaders, and monsters”.

Conan is not new to the gaming scene, but we’re always excited to see what the latest is featuring the fearsome Cimmerian. And at GAMA Trade Show 2015 that was an upcoming miniatures game called Conan Rise of Monsters by Pulposaurus Entertainment! Coming to Kickstarter this summer and then retail in early 2016, Rise of Monsters is an all new skirmish level game featuring high quality pre-painted miniatures; in fact, Pulposaurus is committed to producing the highest quality, best painted minis in the business. This early in the process they didn’t have a lot on display but the artwork used in the game (and as the basis for the miniatures) looked fantastic. There was one piece of terrain with two skeleton warriors, very early prototypes. Interestingly, Pulposaurus is dedicated to making the game retailer-friendly. The Kickstarter will have few if any exclusives so as to give retailers a level playing field, and they may include retailer-specific exclusives like terrain pieces! Look for the Kickstarter this summer with two base boxes (Conan’s Circle of Iron vs. Thoth-Amon’s Legion of Set) with 15-16 minis, dice, cards, and more for about $99.
“The Circle of Iron starter army has a unit of Gunderland Pikemen, a unit of Bossonian Archers, and a unit of Poitainian Knights, supported by a monstrous War Mammoth and led by King Conan.” This is a teaser for future releases of the Crom: Conan Rise of Monsters miniature game. I will be adding more information as it releases in the coming weeks with artwork and unit teases. So keep an eye on this post for updates or join the facebook group!
