Last Sword Miniatures
Wednesday. ... This is always the day of the week that seems to take forever to go by for me. But, after it ends, there's the nice, downward slide into the weekend. I know I could use a pick-me-up in the form of some bite-sized gaming stories.
Today on the platter we have: Turbo Dork Releases New Line of Miniatures Paints, Kraken Dice Pearl Dice Sale Happening Now, Elven Lords Fantasy Miniatures Up On Kickstarter, and The Fourth Place Releases Game Night Ready Kits For Tabletop Games.
Started by a mad artist in his Los Angeles Arts District loft, Turbo Dork is the culmination of years of testing and development. We have gone through hundreds of pigments and formulations to bring you what we think are some of the coolest, most show stopping-est, paints around. We are the new kids on the paint block, ready or not here we come.
Our Pearl dice have a slight pearled sheen to them and are some of the most beautiful dice I have seen, they are perfect for any RPG dice collection. Whether you are playing a RPG like Dungeons & Dragons or Pathfinder, you will enjoy these beautiful pearl dice.
Elven Lords are back, with a brand new regiments and characters.
Dragons's Roar is our second elven campaign. In the future, we would like to create a full elven army for The 9th Age and any others wargames!
Like our first campaign: Elven Lords, the models were designed, scultped and moulded before the launch of the campaing in order to no make you wait too long after you placed the order at the Pledge Manager.
Once again we would like to thank all backers and friends who supported us with their commitment and helped us to share this project through social media.
Unfortunately without your help we would not be able to achieve our goal so that is why we need you folks again!
The Fourth Place has released a line of (Game Night Ready)™ editions of tabletop games, accessorized to be ready for players and businesses to go straight to hosting game nights.
These upgraded versions of popular and critically-acclaimed board and card games are repackaged with premium and hard to find card protector sleeves, lamination for fragile papers, ‘ex libris’ name labels, and other accessories like zip-lock bags and rubber bands, to be ready to play— and to survive game night— right out of the box

Today we have a pair of capital ships, new versions of the Liberté battleship and Cerbere light carrier. These two have changed in design more than some of the other new models, being based on a similar hull that has the same design styling as the Milano and Umberto. At the other end of the scale we also have the diminutive Comète starfighter, tiny but with an amazing amount of detail for something so small.
The release also includes a fleet pack containing a Liberté and a Cerbere along with escorts, fighters and bases.
SFS-400 – Liberté class Battleship – £6.00
SFS-411 – Cerbere class Light Carrier – £6.00

Las Vegas. It’s the home of some of the most amazing and awe-inspiring venues known to humankind. It’s also a gathering place for people of all walks of life to enjoy all kinds of entertainment, from the risqué and bizarre to world-class music and artistry.
But buried among all the hustle and bustle of Las Vegas is a gem of a convention that only board game industry insiders have access to: GAMA Trade Show. Unlike major consumer shows like Gen Con, Origins, and Essen SPIEL, the atmosphere is relatively calm and opportunities abound to network with some of the best game publishers around. For two days (plus several other days of presentations and other events), publishers from all over the world put their products on display for retailers and media folks like us to enjoy. To top it all off, there is also a game night where attendees can learn and play the best new games with the designers and publishers who put their heart and soul into producing them.

Acheson Creations Releases Megatherium (Giant Sloth)

Today we are pleased to announce the release of the victorious Megatherium (Giant Sloth) in our 28mm Primaeval Designs Prehistoric Animal range for $15.00.

Megatherium, from the Greek mega ("great") and therion ("beast") was a genus of elephant-sized ground sloths endemic to South America. Often called the giant ground sloth, megatheriums were believed to have lived from the Early Pliocene through the end of the Pleistocene. The giant sloth's size was exceeded by only a few other land mammals, including mammoths and Paraceratherium.
