The Calm Before The Storm!

Posted by Chris Hobday on

The Art of War Team plans the next new release...[Only kidding; it's classic Martin McKenna from Rogue Trader!] It's been a crazy few weeks. We released our official Guild Ball tokens just in time for Salute, which have gone down an absolute storm. But there's been no time to take our collective foot off the gas. Already we've seen new Captains emerge from the Steamforged Games bunker, with Corbelli getting a lot of people excited. The design team is already working on everything you'll need to run these amazing new characters, so stay tuned! Got to say, though, if you've been...

The Benefits of Bookkeeping

Posted by Chris Hobday on

Well, now I feel old...!  We’re living through a golden age of tabletop gaming. I’ve been aware of miniatures games since the days when Space Marines carried autoguns and shuriken catapults and I can’t recall when there was so much choice, so many great systems jockeying for prime position in the public consciousness as there are today.

We won’t have to keep referring to Episode VIII anymore, because its official title has now been revealed - The Last Jedi. Of course, social media, forums, movie sites and seemingly most of the internet was ablaze with speculation about what this means for the film’s content - although of course we know this could change following the tragic and untimely death of Carrie Fisher at the end of last year.

Posted by Ad Rank on

Star Wars fans are pretty devoted people, but perhaps none more so than Kevin Hill, who has spent the last ten years building a replica of the Millennium Falcon.   The Rotherham artist originally decided to create his own version of the spaceship for a Sci-fi convention in 2006. However, once he got involved in the project, his quest for perfection meant it took far longer than expected, the Daily Mail reported.   Instead, the model ended up being six feet long, four feet wide and weighing 12 stone. It is fantastically detailed and has taken Mr Hill thousands of...
