Argatoria Beta Rules from Spellcrow

Argatoria Beta Rules from Spellcrow

Today we are giving you the English rules for the Argatoria battle game in the test version. Much will change in this rulebook in terms of both rules and illustrations. We'll have to improve a lot, but we want you to be able to play. In May we will announce the release date of the game and any products that will be released for it, such as army deals and army starter sets. Soon we will create a group "Argatoria", to which we will want to invite you. Enjoy reading and testing the rules!

Best Regards,

Spellcrow Team

Soviet Ordnance Set No.1 from Armory Models Group

A while ago we've announced a 1/144 Su-24 Fencer kit with big number of various ordnance included. We tried our hardest, but such move would significantly increase kit's price and put you all off.

After careful consideration and discussions within the team we decided to do better than this, and to launch a bunch of ordnance sets that would be universal for any Soviet modern aircraft type. So, here it is, introducing our next future release - 1/144 Soviet Ordnance Set No.1 - guided Air-to-Air and Air-to-Surface missiles.

Soviet Ordnance Set No.1

This update is specifically for backers new to Bot War.  In this update I show a picture of my painted Infesters including the Queen.  You can see a Vallejo paint bottle in that pic to see how large Bot War models are.

Also a couple of older studio pics of metal Bot War models already released to help you get a feel for the game.

Project Update #16: BOT WAR Miniature Game, Kickstarter from Traders Galaxy


Bot War is an 8mm human scale skirmish game with models ranging in size from 8mm up to 120mm

Deceivers Partial Unlock!! Added Value

Hi All,

In order to boost this campaign and maximise value for my loyal customers I have auto unlocked all I am possibly able to unlock to see this campaign through to the end :).  This means that Communicator, Panic, Dread and Terror will be added automatically to everyone's rewards pledges.

As some of you may not know.  The average size of Bot War Bots is 47mm.  Most of the Deceivers are 50mm and larger.   The Queen for the Infesters pledge for example is on a 100mm oval base and is 120mm tall.  So even though Bot War is 8-10mm human scale, most of the miniatures are quite a bit larger than most miniature games out there.   When I think about it, its quite a large part of Bot War to just not mention :) as this would be quite important to people new to the game.  My sincere apologies.

I am glad to reward all my pledges with this additional value unlock.  I hope this boosts the confidence of those looking to pledge and reassures my existing backers that I am committed to offering the best possible product I can.

Type 59 Tank from 1/144 Tank

New 1/144 China Type 59 Tank  Complete Model PLA green

The Type 59 itous T-54/55 series. The first vehicles were produced in 1958 and it was accepted into service in 1959, with serial production beginning in 1963. Over 10,000 of the tanks were produced by the time production ended in 1980 with approximately 5,500 serving with the Chinese armed forces. The tank formed the backbone of the Chinese People's Liberation Army until the early 2000s with an estimated 5,000 of the later Type 59-I and Type 59-II variants in service in 2002.

The Type 59 was modified several times during its service. It was also the basis of several later Chinese tank designs including the Type 69 and Type 79 tanks.

Update from Dancing Yak Miniatures

Update from Dancing Yak Miniatures

Hi all, here is update (link to free model at bottom of post)

Hope all have been well and safe considering all that has happened in last few weeks with the virus.so here is the update.

Hobgoblin Boomakazi

Hobgoblin Boomakazi

first here is a link to the hobgoblin boomakazi were giving out free to all.We have already given out several free models. and will have several more given as a partial apology for the extended delays.we based it on the idea of the uruki bomber from lotr .thought every self respecting chaos dwarf and hobgoblin army needed a few.

models There will be a few more in future.Now on to next matter of business. I have been getting back into swing of things. have started printing earlier then planned but have come into a few issues. (still ahead of schedule on last post) first screens i bought are wrong model company messed up and sent wrong ones. new ones should be here within next few days. as of now have 1 1/5 working printers and getting the 3 running is top priority atm. new screens should take a few hours to install once in.

Further do to the virus i can no longer afford isoproal 99%.Im down to one little bottle and wh to keep as disinfectant is nearly impossible to get let alone prices. due to this I've bought a few large sonic cleaner to do it instead along with a replacement for the iso.

They should be here this week. on a good note most of the needed revisions to 10mm for proper casting are done and should be printed and off to casting. about 1/3 of 10mm already have models and number of models pre done. I have been going threw emails and messages 1 by 1.

I am still behind on this and please be patient will respond properly as soon as possible. Things are moving along again now even with slight issues. on one final note due to the virus me and my family have made call to stay on with my grandparents till this clears up. Didn't feel right leaving now and inst safe having someone come in every day. so please be aware i have started early then i planed and am moving at good pace again but may slow down. the hope is to still start getting models out in next month to two max. again thank you all for you pactance and enjoy the free.If any one has any questions comments or concerns please feel free to message or comment and i will reply asap. all the best.

WWII Italian Photos

The latest batch of painted vehicles arrived from Jason at J.A.D Designs this week, including all of our WWII Italian vehicles.  These look excellent in the desert colours, so hats off to Jason for his work here.

Incidentally, if anyone knows the proper designation of the command truck in ITA19, let us know!  I can't seem to find any pictures online of anything similar, so I'm not sure of the original manufacturer or model name/number.
