Crowdfunding Spotlight: TOR gaming Relics reinforcements 2 on GamingFunder

9 May


I just saw this crowdfunder advertised over on Facebook, and thought that it was worthy of attention, it’s a new campaign from the folks at Tor gaming, known for the Relics line of miniatures and wargaming rules. (Remember the stitchpunk fantasy football sackboy team?)

I’m not familiar with Gamingfunder, but the principle is pretty much the same as the usual (Indiegogo/KS). What struck me from all the stuff on offer is the miniature pictured above, I must admit that I really like it. It really does remind me of  the old UK kids show “Mr Benn” with his knight episode.


It also has a real “Labyrinth” movie feel, and loads of these would be fantastic as armoured goblins for my WFB orcs. They have some pretty good other stuff, but this one in particular caught my eye.

They are fully funded, so if you wanted get in on the action and get yourself some of their stuff, click the link below and take a look!

Miniature Bids launched! Free auction site for wargames miniatures and games

22 Sep


Just wanted to let you know about the new free to use wargames/miniatures auction site, brought to you by the guys at Tor gaming.

If your not one for ebay and its costs and faff, you’ll be pleased to know that Miniature bids is free from all that and should net you a bit more dollar than letting ebay get their mits on it! The site is looking good, and since yesterday there has been quite a few lots put on there. I’ll be sticking some surplus lead from my pile on there this week, and urge you lot out there to start using such free services like this yourselves. Remember, if you don’t use it, you might eventually loose it, and no one would like that to happen. Support this new site and save some cash in the process! What’s not to like?

Seriously though, we need to support great ideas like this in our hobby, especially if it means a better deal for us all, get over and sign up, and start selling (or buying) I’ll see you there!!

Britanan All Stars Kickstarter Cancelled?!

8 Jan


Britanan All Stars – Relics:AL Fantasy Football Miniatures by Tor Gaming — Kickstarter.

Quick update…Tor gaming’s Stitch punk fantasy football team kickstarter has been cancelled!

Why? I really have no idea, I was pretty sure that they would get total funding for the unique little blighters, which is a shame.

I have been watching Tor games’s stuff for a bit now and I like their approach to minis, producing some good things, so I hope this cancellation is just a little glitch and they decide to bring out these little fellows soon!

Plus, since they are in Sheffield, I think I had better have a bit of South Yorkshire support for the company (as I’m literally a bus journey away!)

They are offering a good pre order deal on some groovy mutant crab men miniatures at the moment too, of which I admit would make excellent kaiju type monsters in my 15mm B-Movie games (especially the bigger one, I’m tempted to get that especially!)

You can see their other stuff and get some crabs (!) at the Tor Gaming website here

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!
