New Badlands Tors and Pillars- Battlefield in a Box!




Good news! Gale Force 9 have just released some new terrain pieces for their Badlands range as well as re-releasing a couple of the old ones.






I was lucky enough to get my hands on the older Bluff and Plateau a while back but they have been...up until now...very hard pieces to get hold of! The smaller new Tors and Pillars are just what I need to bring them all together on the table. So this really is great news.

Artizan Thrilling Tales Miniatures for Pulp Alley




Along with the three African Princesses that I posted up here last week, I also got some Artizan Thrilling Tales figs back from the talented Mr Slade this month...all intended for our Pulp Alley games.

First up, some good guys...




Next up, some bad guys...




Finally, some Afrika Korps...who could be on either side....




As always, Matt has done a lovely job. I hope to put a couple of Pulp Alley Leagues together using these figs sometime over the next week or so and shall post them up as soon as I do.

Next month Matt will be doing some more Artizan Thrilling Tales figs for me to add to the growing collection.

Three African Princesses



I got my latest lot of miniatures back from Matt of Glenbrook Games today. Most of them are Artizan Thrilling Tales figs for our Pulp Alley games (which I'll be showing off later). These three lovely ladies, however, are Copplestone African Princesses for our Lost World and Congo games.






Matt has, as always, done an absolutely superb job!

New Rogue Stars Miniatures!


For those who are in on the Rogue Stars Nickstarter, there will be some new miniatures to add to your order from this weekend. The Space Captain type and the Lion chap, in particular, are brilliant.
