These 28mm Eastern Dark Elf miniatures from Mirliton feature all of the models you would want to include in a fantasy dark elf army. These models are sculpted in 3D modeling software, but are being manufactured in white metal to be delivered to backers.

These models all have are themed around more middle eastern look and feel. This makes them really unique against other companies that are producing dark elf models. Whether you are building an old Warhammer Fantasy army, Ninth Age, Kings of War, or really any other system that uses 28mm figures these are sure to give you a really unique look at feel to your army on the tabletop.

Cultists and Zombies

Cultists and Zombies from RBJ Game Company features an assortment of 28mm figures cast in white metal. Not only is there a big and terrifying mythos monster, but an assortment of really unique zombies and cultists. Models are all sculpted to 28mm scale and so should roughly blend in with other miniatures of that scale.

These figures would be great to supplement a GM’s needs for a mythos RPG or a player who is looking to play a mythos skirmish wargame. If you are one of those people you should definitely check this one out.

Hellboy: The Board Game from Mantic Games features the titular character and his associates leading paranormal investigations into the big, bad, and weird. The original game featured the players taking on the role of one of the investigators and going through a narrative that would reveal itself on a mission. As they would progress further there would be villains to be over come, new clues and advancements in the story, and ultimately a big boss fight at the end.

While there are plenty of missions in the box and a number of expansions to take your games further available this project introduces new content, miniatures, cards and stories you can play. It also introduces a whole new dice game that you can play as a quick filler between your games of Hellboy. If you are a fan of the comics or movies, like bashing your way through rooms of creepy baddies, or just need another cooperative game in your collection then you should check out this project.

Agents of SMERSH: Epic Edition

Agents of SMERSH: Epic Edition from Everything Epic is a game about creating an epic spy thriller in a board game. Playing with 1-4 players, each player takes on the role of a secret agent and must locate Dr. Lobo before it’s too late. Acquire spy gear, skills, gadgets, and allies to help you along the way. If you can make it to the end, then you are sure to face the doctor in what should feel like the final scene in any spy thriller you have seen.

This game has been out for a long time, but this will be a new version with updated artwork and graphic design, updated gameplay, and greater emphasis on the story of the game. If you like big action spy movies with a dastardly villain than this game might be right for you.

You will take on the role of a royal emissary who is charged with the defense of the land. Gather resources, recruit allies, fill your war chest, and complete quests to stop the shadow army from ruling the day.

During the game you will move about the game board rolling dice to indicate your movement. You can move more quickly on horse or dragon back, should you be fortunate enough to gather the service of a noble steed. As you move about you will engage in encounters that will drive a narritive into the game of quests and other interactions.

In addition, you can play this game today on Tabletopia and give it a try before you back. If you want a lighter game you can play with your family and enjoy a fantasy adventure game then this is worth taking a look.

Kickstart Monday: Ragnorock and the Eternal Palace

It’s Monday. It’s time to dive into crowdfunding. Here are a couple of treasures we think you might be interested in.

Ragnorocks

Ragnorocks from Grey Fox Games and designed by Gordon Hamilton (you know, that same guy that designed Santorini) will provide a unique game play experience for 1-2 players. On your turn you will move one of your viking figures on the board and place a runestone. You will have the option to play myth cards that may affect your viking’s ability to do things or give you options on placement of the runestone you normally wouldn’t have. Score the most points and you win!

This abstract game looks to be a real treat, much like Santorini is. If you are in need of a good two player game and checkers and chess have been played out then this might be the game for you.

Eternal Palace

Eternal Palace from Alley Cat Games features a dice placement (dice represent your workers) game with beautiful artwork and intriguing Euro style mechanics. Start your turn by rolling your dice behind a screen. On your turn you will be able to place your dice onto the game board. Beware as you don’t know what your opponents rolled. Action spots on the board may require a 3 or greater or a 5 on the dice to use. Since you don’t know what your opponents rolled you could gamble and take a more needed action only to find out that they did roll that 5 on the one dice they had of that type.

The game boasts that the main game will have over 400 components. If dice placement, tons of components, and player interaction sound great then hop over and back this project.
