New Backdrops Books Progress

Welcome to Friday! Progress is constantly happening as we close in on going to print with the next wave of Jon Hodgson Backdrop Books. In the latest monthly kickstarter update we shared a montage of the completed Fantasy Ruins and Tunnels book. Check it out, along with some sample shots with some of the new backdrops, and a cool Bad Squiddo Shieldmaiden figure.

There’s still time to place your pre-order for any of the new backdrop books here.

The Meatspoiler Arrives in Print

We were very pleased to recently take delivery of the new edition of The Meat Spoiler for Maskwitches. We’ll be holding these until we have the print run of the main Maskwitches corebook on hand, and we’re waiting on the kickstarter funds to print those. In the meantime you can secure a copy with a pre-order here.



UK Games Expo Special Edition 1: Maskwitches

To celebrate the release of Maskwitches of Forgotten Doggerland Redux Edition we will be bringing a very small number of special UK Games Expo Variant cover editions to… UK Games Expo at the end of the month.

As detailed on the campaign page (It’s right at the end if you missed it, but it is there!) we want to celebrate the new edition at the UK’s largest weekend gaming event with some advanced special copies. The “print run” (it’s a very small number to term “a run”!) arrived today and they look great.

Find us in Hall One at stand 1-122, with our friends at Nightfall Games and Hansor Publishing.

If you’re really hurting to get one of these advance copies, we will reserve some for folks who can’t get to UK Games Expo. Just drop us a line via email and we can sort out putting one by for you .
