Mutant Koala Bounty Hunter

Posted on April 8th, 2016 under , . Posted by

Slowly than before, this kickstarter was funded. Not so big amounts of money to invest in miniatures, so one hundred of backers don’t emerge with their force. However there is still time to pledge here: PROJECT SIMIAN ULTRA X In the meantime two chaps are pledging for 2 special figures that Ganesha Games realised following […]

Project Simian Ultra X

Posted on April 2nd, 2016 under , . Posted by


I can’t resist this one. A set of five new sculpts of tooled-up simians for use with any SF/RPG game.
A set of bio-engineered apes are sure to find a ledge somewhere on my lead mountain. After all, it’s a pretty inclusive mountain. Maybe these can sit alongside the Fightin’ Fungi on the totally bonkers but cool section. 

Even though these miniatures are totally unrelated, my nostalgia-sensor had me recalling those classic Planet of the Apes movies starring the chisel-jawed Charlton Heston taking time off from all those sword and sandal biblical epics. However, these new ape miniatures are more akin to classic 70s and 80s science fiction RPGs. I mean, one is sporting an environmental suit and another is peering down the scope of a rather futuristic sniper rifle!
This is a modest Kickstarter from Damon Richardson and Andrea Sfiligoi of Ganesha Games to produce these 28mm miniatures sculpted by Micah Nichols – along with an optional simian supplement to support Ganesha’s Mutants and Death Ray Gunsruleset. Estimated delivery is June next year. And there are some rather intriging strech goals too.
So if any of my readers are interested in some rather nifty simian characters for their games have a mosey over to the Kickstarter. Its open now with 13 days to go.

Project SIMIAN ULTRA X

Posted on April 2nd, 2016 under , . Posted by

The new Ganesha Games’s kickstarter is here! In the not too distant future, a secret military project was initiated to create a genetically engineered soldier that was specialized for stealth, reconnaissance, infiltration, and assassination. The project was known as SIMIAN ULTRA X and combined the DNA of ape, human, and flying squirrel. You can now […]

Blood Reef

I want to bring to your attention the Blood Reef kickstarter by Antimatter Games: https://www.kickstarter.com/p…/524168246/deepwars-blood-reef Blood Reef is based on Deep Wars, that is a detailed variant of the Song of Blades rules. Antimatter licensed the rules and gave them their own spin. The end result is quite different from SOBH but has the same […]

Hellana 2016

Posted on March 28th, 2016 under , , , , , . Posted by

A new location, an old convention: Hellana. Here again, year after year. But this time I didn’t bring with me gladiators. Moreover I wasn’t interested in tournaments. So only chatting with people about our lives and little soldiers. Maybe the new location is a little larger than the old one. More space among tables. One […]
