But when you are done, you could easily fit them into a cupboard or locker? Which you could easily transfer to your gaming club for the pleasure of your mates, since your 4’x4’ table would weigh only 7 pounds and fit into a 1’x1’x1.5’ box? Because all these and more, can be done with Pedion.

Pendraken Miniatures: New Fantasy Warband Barbarians Released

Posted on May 26th, 2015 under , , . Posted by

Pendraken Miniatures: After a bit of a delay after the big run of shows recently, we’re very happy to now be able to release our new Warband barbarians! Techno has done an excellent job on these, and as with the Goblins and Hill Dwarves, you’re getting complete variety across all of the packs, with no two figures being identical. Alongside that, we’ve got revamped Mammoths, Catapults and Icarusi (the last of which we haven’t got a pic of yet!). Following on quickly from these will be the next batch of Monsters, including Scorpions, Spiders and Bats, and then we’ll be raising the Undead!

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. Check the rules over here.

Pedion Terrain: Modular Prepainted Wargame Terrain System Crowdfunder Previewed

Posted on May 26th, 2015 under , , , , , , . Posted by

Pedion Terrain: Create your own Battlefield! A fully modular, lightweight Terrain system with realistic prepainted features for 15-28mm Wargames & Roleplaying Games.
Can you imagine a terrain system which could allow you recreate almost any kind of battlefield on your home’s tabletop? Not printed, but realistic, beautiful looking battlefields that could be mistaken for dioramas? That you could interchange features to suit any battle scenario? But when you are done, you could easily fit them into a cupboard locker? Or you could easily transfer it to your gaming club for the pleasure of your mates, since your 4’x4’ table would weight only 7 pounds and fit into a 1’x1’x1.5’ box? Because all these and more, you can do with Pedion.
Pedion is a Terrain System; a way for wargamers, role-players, even hobbyists to create every time any battlefield* they wish to play on, without sacrificing aesthetics or requiring much room for storage. The principle of Pedion is that the board will consist of a number of terrain “tiles”, that is, square pieces each depicting specific terrain features: open plains, roads, rivers, forests, hills, corps etc. The tiles are 30x30cm and only 1cm thick (1’x1’x0.4”) and they connect to each other without any restriction. They are pre-painted with realistic features while still practical for miniature movement and combat. By combining the tiles, the players can form multiple layouts, covering most table sizes, or even expanding them a bit, as the tiles can overhang from the table edges. The tiles are very lightweight, durable and take minimal space – making storing and transferring them extremely easy.
Check the preview Prefundia page here for more information.
Pedion started as a homemade project, but I believe it has the potential to reach gamers worldwide – and that’s what the Kickstarter is for. This campaign is for mass producing and making Pedion Battlefield Sets commercially available. The modular system has already undergone extensive design and prototyping. However, the tiles are still mostly handmade, although much of the development process is standardized and the bases are machine-cut. By this Kickstarter campaign, I aim to: a) determine if there is actually a “market” for pre-painted modular, expandable terrain, and b) -main reason- acquire an initial sum in order to invest into mass-production solutions, namely molds and matrices.
There are six (6) base Reward Sets, each consist of a predetermined collection of Tiles. These sets may be expanded and upgraded through Add-ons and/or Stretch Goals. Keep in mind that the tiles in the photographs are handmade prototypes and the final products may vary slightly. These Rewards will be available at -25% of the future retail price, some even more if you are fast enough!

Check this introduction to the battle-that-never-was blog post by Alternative Armies: 8th of May, 1801 – forces of the Ferach Emperor Mordred face off against the defenders of the Free State of Schnöselberg in a border skirmish to capture the small town and its water supply. After several roll calls, cups of coffee, polishing of uniforms and going over their orders, the commanders realised it was almost tea time and promptly agreed to leave the battle for another day. They enjoyed a beef stew at the local inn, the Red Dragon.- Fritz Heulen, war correspondent. Full blog post here.
