All Quiet on the Western Front

Things have been a bit quiet here recently as we get ready to move house...but just before we do we're off to sunny Cornwall for our Summer hols! So it really will be quiet here for the next couple of weeks. Back in August!

The Public Enemy

I got my first lot of Copplestone gangsters back from Matt the other day. As always, he's done a brilliant job!

I've taken a few pics...apologies for the inappropriate terrain but everything else I have is in storage ready for our upcoming move!

Boss or Enforcer

Boss or Hoodlum




Slugger this fig!

I'm looking forward to getting the next lot and having enough for a game of Mad Dogs with Guns!

Dracula's America: Shadows of the West...Nickstarter Live!

North Star's Dracula's America: Shadows of the West Nickstarter officially goes live on Monday but for those of us who have joined the Dracula's America: Shadows of the West Player's Page on Facebook the page is already live!! If you can't wait, just head on over to the Facebook page here and join up!

There are early bird deals until Wednesday when prices will go up...and there is lots to choose from. If you want all of it then the early bird price is £118 for the lot! Otherwise a book and posse combo will set you back anything from £31.90 to £48.60 depending on the posse and the figures included.

You can also buy all of the figures individually including many from the Artizan Wild West range as well as assorted other figures from a few other ranges...most of which are not normally available individually.

You can apparently play the game as straight Wild West or include the Weird West elements from the book. The posses (each made up of around 10 figs) are Twilight Order (Templars/Monster Hunters), Red Hand Coven (Vampires), Skinwalkers (Indian Shapeshifters), Crossroads Cult (Demon Worshippers), Congregation (Voodoo) and Dark Confederate (Zombie). There is also a further book in the works, Hunting Grounds (due out in Jan 2018), which adds The Forsaken (Cursed 7th Cavalry) and White Dragon Tong.

Already having quite a few Wild West figs, I've jumped on board for the book and some of the more Weird West figs. Really looking forward to this!

Dark Dungeon Gaming Mat from Ceri Design

I got my Dark Dungeon 4' x 3' gaming mat from the Ceri Design kickstarter last week...and it looks great!

The brown-tinged flagstones and cobblestones will be great for everything from Victorian streets to lost cities to dungeons deep. They will also go well with the Badlands Battlefield in a Box stuff I least I think so but most of my stuff is in storage at the moment so I'll have to wait to find out for sure.

And it fits our kitchen table perfectly. I really need to give it an iron, though...but that too is in storage!

Anyway, I am certainly planning on picking some more up soon!
