Ral Partha Chaos Wars new Kickstarter - Wave 4 - a Tom Meier cornucopia!


For me Tom Meier is one of the sculpting Gods of the hobby. I picked up examples of his work when Ral Partha were first imported into the UK by Wargames Publications (Scotland) Ltd in the later 70's. His work is just about second to none and I hate to think of how many unpainted sculpts of his I have sat around the house... Jacob Fathbruckner has taken on the task of Ral Partha Legacy and it is a worthy one indeed. Take a look at what the Kickstarter has to offer, link below.

Beyond that you've got regiment sets, giants, dragons, siege weaponry and more... pop over and pledge as Jacob tells me all the funding is going into producing the miniatures and then into getting more produced. Greater love hath no man.

An Introduction to Fantasy Wargames; Battle Magazine December 1977


A wonderful old memory I came across again when browsing through Battle mags. I think this was used separately by GW as a flyer? Great little article by Steve Jackson of Games Workshop,

I don't think Steve Jackson (or Games Workshop!) need any introduction of course. There is a fantastic looking book on the origins of Games Workshop coming out relatively soon. I backed it some time ago but it's not too late to pre-order;

More later, keep safe.

The Vermin have arrived... almost...


A new race has entered Geründerland... the Vermin... up for discounted pre-order with a hopeful delivery mid June. Accompanied by a Soulslayer and a Liche, they can throw terror onto your tabletop... flee you fools!

This is a new venture for me instead of using Kickstarter which tends to be a little long winded, especially if it's just for a small release... every pun intended. The minis will go into general release later in the month but this does give the bonus of cheap figures!
