Here is Anvil Industries monstrous Werewolf has had a lick of paint to bring it to life.
Warcradle Studios is proud to announce it has acquired all rights and materials relating to Wild West Exodus – the thrilling dark industrial western fantasy game from Outlaw Miniatures LLC.
You’ll always get those moments with bits of terrain when you look at them and think that’s not that special, but I guess it’ll do. I used to be very much like that and it’s been more about getting stuff on the table and playing games than the elements behind the scene like terrain. But as some of you may have seen in my other articles I’ve been slowly trying to up my game.
David and I (Mark) have been champing at the bit to get in a game or two of Arcworlde since we got the figures painted up for TTGUK Paints. The figures have tonnes of character and the game seemed like fun, at least Jez thought so here. He’s normally right so we finally decided to pit our wits against each other a few weeks ago.
Like a lot of games around at the moment Arena Rex is another from Kickstarter game. Whilst I never noticed when it was up (slight shame to be honest), it is a game I have picked up and after a slightly confusing start have found I really enjoy it. For many it will be seen as a Beer and Pretzels style game, one to sneak in before or after the main game of the night. But to me you should be treating it as the main event.
One of things though that can put people off on a game beyond not liking it is the miniature scale and of late I really have noticed a scale creep. Arena Rex is 35mm so that’s a bit odd and it does mean that fitting it with other miniatures or ranges is a little difficult. But it shouldn’t put people off playing the game.
With my other Terrain articles I’ve been aiming for an end product that has some use when gaming. So the Trees and Asteroids have a purpose, the piece this time doesn’t really have a purpose in any game and it’s all for show.
When your out doing demo’s it’s really nice to have something for the mini’s your using to sit on. Whilst a nice glass cabinet is great, it’s a bit much to drag around to places that I’m just doing a demo at. After seeing Mark’s Armies on Parade post it reminded me that my current display board was not only a little small for my expanding force but very bland. It’s just a piece of a very old Zuzzy matt dry brushed and stuck on some blue foam.
Learning Curve has been suspended for the week whilst I cover something a little different. I have been lucky enough to come into possession of Cool Mini or Not’s undead pirate-fest Rum & Bones!

Short wars is a skirmish level game, played with small warbands of diminutive races – Goblins, Halflings, Dwarfs and Dark Dwarfs – as they build upon their fortunes and reputations by exploring and raiding neighboring territories, amassing gold and defeating rival warbands, with figures in the range sculpted by such prominent industry names as Kevin Adams, John Pickford, Ross Whitehorn and Chris Nicholls.
There are a lot of fantasy games out there that will have forces of humans, Orcs and all the other races that you expect in a fantasy game. Whereas Twilight looks at things in a slightly different light; the Tolkien based races are gone and a more organic set of races dwell on the face of Anyaral.
