Epic warfare is an inescapable part of the Star Wars™ universe, and you can lead your troops to victory with Star Wars: Legion™, a two-player miniatures game of thrilling infantry battles in the Star Wars universe! As a miniatures game, Star Wars: Legion invites you to enter the ground battles of the Galactic Civil War as the commander of a unique army filled with troopers, powerful vehicles, and iconic characters.

Evil Dead 2: Board Game Miniatures [Images]

Evil Dead Board Game Box Art

Originally launched on Kickstarter the Evil Dead 2: The Official Board Game is a tile and miniature based survival horror game for 2-6 Players based on the classic movie.

When it originally launched over a year ago now Spacegoat, the designers of The Evil Dead 2 Board Game had the stupidly ambitious fulfilment date of November – mere months after the campaign’s launched. I always took this with a pinch of salt as this was their first Board Game and veterans like CMON usually allow 12 months plus for fulfilment of a game. But yes I have been getting quite impatient over the last few months and really want to get this on the table and get it played.

Well it was great to see that Space Goat now finally have the miniature samples back from the manufacturer and it is really that one step closer to being a real thing. I would love to see this in my house before Christmas, but this may or may not happen, we will have to see.

What is good for those who missed the original Kickstarter is that you can still preorder from the Space Goat website (MerchGoat) until Halloween 2017 at the amazingly low price of $59.99 but you have missed out on the Kickstarter exclusive bits and pieces that I will hopefully be getting before the end of this year now.

Anyway please see the miniature sample images below originally from the Kickstarter update. I am drooling already and so cannot wait to get mu grubby little hands on them.

Warlord Games Have 2000AD Miniatures Licence

Warlord Games is to produce a new line of miniatures and games based on the legendary British comic book, 2000 AD.

The worldwide licence covers miniatures games, scenery and collectable miniatures sets based on series and characters from weekly comic, which is the home of Judge Dredd, Strontium Dog, Nemesis the Warlock, and a whole galaxy of characters from over 40 years.

Game development and designs are in the very early stages but initial plans are for a game based on the world of Strontium Dog, the popular futuristic Wild West-style series where mutated humans such as Johnny Alpha are forced to become bounty hunters.

Paul Sawyer, Head of Product Design at Warlord Games, says “Many of us at Warlord are ardent 2000 AD fans so the chance to take on a licence to work with the stories we grew up with and continue to avidly enjoy was something of a dream come true. We have many ideas to bring the wonderful stories from our favourite strips – old and new – to the tabletop and work had begun in earnest to do justice (pun intended) to Judge Dredd, Strontium Dog, Flesh, Slaine, Kingdom and many of their sister strips. If a mere Earthlet might dare to quote The Mighty Tharg, this is going to be scrotnig!”.

Keith Richardson, licensing manager for 2000 AD, said: “Knowing how many of the Warlord staff are fans of 2000 AD and seeing the wonderful craftsmanship in their work has me really excited. Together I’m positive that we will produce some truly zarjaz games!”

Warlord Games is a leading light in the tabletop miniature games industry. Warlord is currently developing games and miniatures for Doctor Who through licence from the BBC and has its own science fiction game written by legendary games developer, Rick Priestley – Beyond the Gates of Antares. Warlord has many game systems based on military history – from the award-winning World War II game produced in conjunction with Osprey Publishing – Bolt Action, to its massed battle games – Hail Caesar, Pike & Shotte and Black Powder. www.warlordgames.com

2000 AD is the legendary weekly British anthology comic and home of Judge Dredd, as well as a galaxy of original sci-fi, fantasy, and horror action stars. As well as producing innovative and provocative comics for almost 40 years, it has brought the industry some of its biggest talents, from Alan Moore, Grant Morrison, and Mark Millar, to Jock, Brian Bolland, Dave Gibbons, and many more. Published in print and digital every Wednesday, 2000 AD is the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic and remains at the industry’s cutting edge. www.2000ADonline.com
