Things like this make me want to create whole new projects… Continue reading Crowdfunding Spotlight: Magmod Scenics’ Fortified Farmstead Kickstarter
I thought I'd draw attention to this KS, a 75mm scale game no less (Could this be a new trend in scales?) Duel fighters, like I said is a 75mm game of cinematic combat, with larger scale "highly detailed" resin figures, and accessories. With a slick presentation and stylish art, Duel fighters is certainly nice… Continue reading Crowdfunding Spotlight: Duel Fighters Kickstarter

Some… Continue reading Northampton Clown News: Could the clown be coming to a Town near you?
