This is quite the eventful time in miniatures, isn’t it?
At the moment, I’m watching closely Gamezone’s Kickstarter for a 25th anniversary edition of Heroquest.
Gamezone has been making some pretty nice fantasy minis for years, and have a pretty large line of minis to their name. Apparently, they’ve secured the rights to produce Heroquest in Spain. So, they’ll be producing games in Spain in a number of languages and mailing them out all over the world.
They’ve stated that they’ve been in contact with Hasbro (which owns the Heroquest property) and are not using any of GW owned works (mostly, GW owned the miniature sculpts themselves). All and all, this is a great time to be a Heroquest fan.
It is easy to see that Gamezone isn’t exactly an English as a first language company. Even with the troubles they’re having on that front, the Kickstarter has raised over half a million in its first three days.
So, second piece of news I’m super excited about. Wyrd Games just announced that they’re having a Black Friday sale, and revealed a number of goodies that they’ll be selling as pre-releases.
Among them, there’s a new rules manual for Malifaux 2nd edition. I was afraid we weren’t going to see one of these.
And there are a number of new kits of characters that have recently become plastic. Among my favorites is the Latigo Posse and Body of Evidence:
Anyway, happy Thanksgiving.
