Bob Olley's Steampunk Dwarves

| Thursday, 28 November 2013 | 0 comments |
Personally I don't have too much interest in the whole steampunk/fantasy crossover style of figures. It initially put me off of the Wolsung crowd-funding campaign until I realized that their figures fantasy aspects were so subtle that they could be ignored.


However, even I have to admit that Bob Olley's new range of Steampunk Dwarves, or Skrunts as he is want to call them, are rather fine examples of the species and I would be very happy to find an excuse to use them in my steampunk games...

The Kickstarter campaign has around 8 days to run so I would recommend that anyone interested in these quality figures moves quite quickly.







I have seen several of Mr. Olley's scratch built vehicles over the years, but it is great to see that he has turned his talents to producing some vehicle kits to go along with the Skrunts too...



Minifigs New Martian Range

| | 3 comments |
Miniature Figurines have just announced a new range of Martians that would suit both Sword and Planet and Steampunk games.

They have only released a couple of photos so far, but the range looks well worth keeping an eye on!


 I like the retro feel of these figures, giving them spears rather than guns certainly helps with the Sword and Planet feel! Of course, there is no saying that the spears can't be power weapons if that takes your fancy...

The tripod is very much in the classic H.G. Wells style and should have multiple use, even though, at the moment the size of this beast hasn't been disclosed...

The Great Martian War: A History Channel Special

To mark the recent 100th anniversary of H.G. Wells The War of The Worlds the History Channel has produced a rather interesting mockumentary, you can see the trailer here:-


Based around a very different First World War, this looks like a great reference work for anyone planning an alien invasion game!






Tobsen Miniaturen

Somehow I have managed to forget to list Tobsen Miniaturen on the Figure Companies page.

I have corrected that now!

Tobsen Miniaturen make a range of resin vehicles that are whimsical in design and range from steampunk through Retro Sci-Fi.

Spartan Games New Dystopian Legions Miniatures

| Monday, 4 November 2013 | 0 comments |
Spartan Legions have released pictures of a couple of new minis for their VSF game Dystopian Legions.


I must admit that neither of these miniatures particularly scream steampunk at me! OK, the first one has a Victorian fireman's helmet on, and the second one has a cog belt buckle, but they just don't have any real VSF character about them...
The Drone Controller might be of use in a Weird War game (see my other blog - Pulp Gaming Review if you are interested in that kind of thing), but otherwise there is nothing that attracts me to them...
