Grinning Skull Studios October Release Round-Up

4 Nov

Well, as the saying goes, better late than never, indeed we are a few days late in posting the mammoth load of Grinning Skull studios publications that were released last month. I actually think that it’s a new record here, which also leaves us only 31 releases left before we hit 200 Grinning Skull publications in total! Quite a milestone, which I’m pretty confident will easily get smashed to take us over this before 2018 is upon us!

I’m hoping that by the end of 2018, we can get to 400, which would be very cool a target indeed and something I’ll be seriously trying to get to! anyway, enough about the future, let’s talk about the past, hop in my metaphoric time capsule with me and let’s explore October…

First up are two titles for use with those of you who play any sort of Apocalyptic RPG. Aimed at the zombie genre of play, but easily put to use for nuclear aftermath type games, or any other end of the world themed game. Check them out here:

October’s Pointless classic title is 100 B-Movies, ideal to fill in background fluff in modern settings, It’s a Pay What You Want Title (as are all Pointless Classics) so technically free to download, although the more generous of you out there can donate a bit (if you want, you don’t have to!) as a special way of thanking us for our kindness at making these available this way!

Weird 15mm Games I should run: Zombies On The Buses…

7 Jul

I have some weird ideas for wargames, and while most can be somewhat surreal at times, there are some that really stick in my head. A lot of these would be ideal games for conventions as they aren’t really ideas you’d use in a campaign over the course of a few sessions. These would prove to be a great laugh and fun games, and just maybe it might inspire someone to have a go…

Crowdfunding Spotlight: Tabletop Towns – Cargo Containers Kickstarter

14 May

 

There’s so much cool stuff for 28mm wargaming these days, it almost makes me want to start the switch back over. The choice and availability for the scale seems to far outstrip the rest that for most, it’s classed as god’s own scale!

Regulars to the site will recognise this latest KS from the tabletop towns stable of products, with this time, something for the wargamers who play modern & scifi. These containers suit the modular nature of the tabletop towns style of simple block shaped buildings and terrain, and I’m sure there will be plenty of takers for them.

Ideal scenics for a modern/zombie setting as well as the plethora of more scifi orientated stuff, and quite asthetically pleasing when grouped, it adds another string to their growing catalogue of portable card scenery. If you’ve been paying attention to the evolution of tabletop towns, I can see great things to come from them in the future.

Personally I’m holding out for some 15mm stuff (city blocks and the like) and I’d be all over them like no ones business, but I think that there’s probably more viability in 28mm in terms of sales from the 28mm folks, but with the growing popularity of 15mm, I still reckon there’s a good untapped market with the 15mm crowd.

As ever I wish them the best with their campaign (even so I know they’ll get full funding)
