Ramshackle Games New post apoc 20mm bikers

16 Apr

I admit a liking for 20mm stuff, especially the idea of post apocolypse stuff. I could get well into the scale and genre big time, even so it could be tricky, given the limited options available. After spotting this over on frothers, I had to show you lot.

Which is why this new release from Ramshackle Games gives a bit of hope. Very “Dark Future“, so I can see some of you resurrecting your old boxed sets and using these, especially when the new Mad Max movie comes out (I also it to see a post apoc miniature revival then too!)

Overall, its a great set, and good value too that won’t break the bank either.


Sheffield Triples 2013 is almost upon us…

14 May


A big shout out to the Sheffield Wargames society and their annual wargaming extravaganza that is “Triples”! Yes, it’s almost time again for the north of England‘s premier war games show on thiscoming Saturday and Sunday.

I’ll be there to have a good look around, and work in the capacity of photographer and journalist for the day (well, in the capacity of for this fair blog, kind of like, I’ll be taking photos, and chatting to folks while i’m about!!) If your there yourself and spot me about, pop over and say hello!!

There has been some rumours of a Mad Max style affair and even mention of Iron Man being there (which my kids are quite excited about if its true!) As well as loads of great traders there, there will be the usual demos and tourneys, if you can get there, seriously you’ll have a great day out!!

For a more detailed look at what to expect, check out their website, link below!

WYRMWOOD: Indiegogo update

17 Jan


WYRMWOOD: An Aussie Zombie Film | Indiegogo.

So, as I’m doing recaps on the various KS and Indiegogo campaigns we have been observing, I knew this one would be a success.

Wyrmwood is a post apoc zombie movie in the same vein as Mad Max and being Australian, it shares its fine pedigree.

With 32 days left (not 28 days…) they have reached a total of $31,155 as I write this, although I’m sure they will get more by the end. Not bad considering they were only looking for $20,000 to get the film done!

I  will look forward to seeing the finished flick in the near future.

Don’t sweat it, there’s still time to get involved if you want!

Peace out!

The Grinning Skull, End of year crowd funding round up

30 Dec

Hello all, hope your enjoying the holiday season and santa brought you something nice!!

Ok I thought I’d give you a heads up on some of the stuff we have been following on the Indiegogo and Kickstarter crowd funding sites, as well as a couple to look out for too. Lets start with a new project hoping to get you, the public, to part with your hard earned cash to get some cool things into production….



If your a fogey like me, you might remember the GW game Bloodbowl, a fantasy gridiron football board game. It was pretty good as I remember, we had loads of fun making leagues, playing matches and creating sometimes offensive named teams…I aint played in years, but there still is a large community of fantasy footballers out there still playing it and other similar games along those lines. Now, Tor games want to get these little fellows into production. A “stitch-punk” team that seems straight from the console games, “little big planet”. We love Sackboy and all his crazy costumes in my house, and I love these equally, even so I don’t play any games these would be used for! Check it out and snag a team! I hope that they have the good sense to release some of these stitch-punk creations for a fantasy and scifi setting too in te not too distant….

This one I think isn’t going to make it. I had my reservations when I first saw it, as they were asking for a shed load of cash, but very little real concrete details. I still wish them all the luck in the world, but I think that they need to put more work into the thing before launching another campaign.

So, this one failed. Much as most LARP is still looked upon with wonder and regarded with suspicion and distain by normals. So it is a no brainer that the world is not ready for LARP just yet. It is a shame that people with the inspiration in the live roleplaying community won’t get to see their good ideas into reality, and I think that while LARP is a niche hobby, there is a place for a magazine like this, and the failure is possibly down to the Apathy I have seen, time and time again by other LARPers (That’s what it’s like in the UK anyway!) Bad luck folks and I do hope you keep trying, and regroup and re-evaluate the project rather than give up on it! Oh, maybe it was bad karma to change the mag’s name part way through your campaign….!

As I like zombie movies, and I love post apoc movies too, I know I’m going to buzz off this. Described as Mad Max with zombies, I have a feeling that many others will too. Go and have a look at how you can get involved with some production credits and even be on set if you become a funder (Hey, you can even be in for the whole red carpet premiere thing,if you fancy sticking your hand in your pocket to help fund the rest of the movie!) It’s most certainly one you should at least check out. Very cool!
