Manorhouse Workshop: New Underground and Castle Rooms Previewed

Posted on March 1st, 2015 under , , , , , , . Posted by

Manorhouse Workshop: While we wait the 3D Files for the steel molds of the basic set of sewers and underground. Let’s start with the new design of the second set: underground and rooms of the castle. 
The second set (drawings made by Michele Bottalico) will be dedicated to the Gothic period and to the first windows with arches “Sesto Acuto” and “Everything Sesto”, both mono that mullioned windows. Creating so further dynamism and possibilities to make unique your dungeon of dream.We show the first W.I.P. walls of stone base and the new “walls dynamics”. As noted above, are still in the works, but you begin to see the end result.
The central part of the wall is always removable and replaceable with other dynamics walls. The new dynamics stone walls can also be used with the older version of arc walls brick, making more varied design of the corridors… …like the arc wall “Sesto Acuto”, may use some of the mobile walls in brick. In the next post, we will present the interior balconies and stairs to access it.

Orcs in the Webbe: The Lady Canrig Bwt – An Original Short Story from a Time before Blackpowder‏

Posted on March 1st, 2015 under , , , . Posted by

Orcs in the Webbe: Dydd Gŵyl Dewi Hapus! A Happy Saint David’s Day to you all! In previous years (with various levels of success) OITW has brought you a series of linked adventures on each of the four Saints Days observed in Wales, Ireland, England and Scotlandand this year is no exception.
I thought it would be good to see where various characters we read about on OITW come from and that in turn led me to think about what they were doing in the time before Blackpowder. I loved the original Flintloque ‘prequel’, Dresda, and was also a great fan of it’s successor, Darkestorme. Both look at what Valon was like as a fantasy realm. Whilst each is at it’s core a high fantasy ruleset, there’s anough of Valon in there to make them feel different to other fantasy games. These adventures are from that time, when magicke, monsters and treasure filled the land. I hope you enjoy reading this years Saints Day tales as much as I have.
Today’s release is a brand new short story by Tony Harwood. In it a young Orc called Freddy stumbles into a sinister plot on the streets of a small taffsea town. Who is the mysterious Lady Canrig Bwt…

Northstar Miniatures: Free Monkey with On the Seven Seas Rules

Posted on February 22nd, 2015 under , , , , , . Posted by

Northstar Miniatures: We’ve still got some metal monkeys lying around, so this weekend only, if you buy a copy of On The Seven Seas… 
On the Seven Seas is a set of wargames rules covering the high adventure and low morals of the world of the pirate. The rules cover licensed privateers such as da Gama and Drake, ruthless pirates of the Spanish Main, Blackbeard, the Barbary corsairs, the wako of the Far East, not to mention the anti-pirate squadrons, Spanish garrisons and native warriors from around the world that found themselves at odd with generations of sea-borne reavers, The focus of the game is on boarding actions and the exploits of pirate crews on land, and the rules offer a quick-to-learn basic game based around individual characters and small units of rank-and-file. Most games will run to some 15 figures a side, although larger games are possible, and tribal forces especially will consist of more models. 
Gameplay centres around two driving motivations that epitomise the pirate life – Fear and Greed. Cunning captains will have to balance these two elements, instilling fear in their opponents with bloodthirsty reputations, while keeping their own crews in line with the promise of loot and wealth. Captains and crew are not just distinguished by these two ratings, however – characteristics and disadvantages can dramatically alter a character’s abilities, and allow for the development of characters over time. 
The rules also contain manoeuvre and gunnery rules for ship-on-ship combat. This is not a game of mass naval actions, but of small, personal duels between determined captains. Caravels, sloops, schooners, native canoes, junks and square-rigged ships up to frigate size can be deployed in the pursuit of a prize… or a pirate vessel. 
The crews themselves may be drawn from a number of different options, each with their own advantages and disadvantages, and a points system is provided to produce balanced forces. Crew options include: Conquistadors, Spanish and Portuguese garrisons and treasure escorts, naval pirate hunters, natives from the Americas, Africa, Indonesia and the South Seas, and, last but by no means least, pirates from around the world – Europe, North and West Africa, China and Japan.

Pendraken Miniatures: Warband Fantasy Rules Released

Posted on February 20th, 2015 under , , , . Posted by

Pendraken Miniatures: Warband provides all the rules you need to bring great battles between fantasy armies to your tabletop.
Using miniature figures and terrain, you can fight battles from the glorious sword and sorcery epics you’ve read about. You can play games against your friends or competitive battles against worthy opponents. Whilst the rules have been written with the 10mm Pendraken Miniatures ranges in mind, there’s no reason why you can’t use other scales as well!
Warband is designed to be simple to learn and difficult to master, and so it uses a single consistent task resolution method throughout the rules. Whether you’re trying to get a unit of warriors to move, seeing how effective it’s shooting or fighting is, or how well it has defended itself, you’ll be using the same dice pool mechanism. You determine the number of dice to roll and each result of 4+ is a success. The more successes you roll, the better your units will do, and the more likely you are to win. Simple!
Of course fighting a good tactical battle, getting your units into advantageous situations, and making effective command decisions will mean you’ll be far more likely to win. Coming up with effective tactics for your chosen army to defeat your opponents is what will take you time to master.
So with Warband’s intuitive rules you’ll be fighting the battle not the rulebook, and hopefully having a lot of fun into the bargain! You’ll be able to decide which of the fantastic races you’d like to command and then construct your force from the lists provided. Warband includes complete army lists for twelve armies, with abilities, options, spell lists, and descriptions including; Barbarian men, Dark elves, Dragon men, Eldritch vampires, Goblins, High elves, Hill dwarves, Lizardmen, Samurai apes, Taurians, Undead, and Wood elves.
Army composition and optional upgrades are highly flexible, allowing you to build the force that best fits your style of play. If you’d like to command a horde of bison riding barbarians, rampaging minotaurs, skirmishing ghouls, or serried ranks of deadly elven archers then you’ll find something to suit you in the Warband rules.
