From the Press Release:-

Modiphius Entertainment and Pinnacle Entertainment Group announce the official Achtung! Cthulhu: Showdown!™ skirmish game in 2014. 

 Launching in Spring 2014 alongside the awesome range of Achtung! Cthulhu miniatures, Achtung! Cthulhu Showdown!™ is a standalone miniatures rulebook and full campaign allowing skirmish players to dive in to the world of Achtung! Cthulhu.

“We’ve been dying to see one of our Savage Worlds licensees do a big, full-blown Showdown miniatures game for some time. Modiphius has truly impressed us with Achtung! Cthulhu, and when we saw the incredible miniatures and terrain for the game Mark Margraf created for it at GenCon 2013, we knew this was something truly special. We can’t wait to get some lead painted and play it ourselves!” Commented Shane Hensley of Pinnacle Entertainment. 

Showdown!™, is the official miniatures rules for the award-winning Savage Worlds rules system. This release will include all the rules you need to play plus quick rules for sanity loss on the battlefield, details of the Mythos creatures and forces of the Secret War, typical World War Two troop lists for the Western Front, standard scenarios, and a full blown campaign following the adventures of Charlie Company in the Forest of Fear.

“There’s a whole skirmish story arc for people to play out, from their first days in the squad to leading a whole company against the forces of the Third Reich and the Mythos,” Chris Birch of Modiphius explained. “The great thing about Showdown!™ is that it lets you take the essence of the Savage Worlds roleplaying game, turn the action up to 11 and pump hot lead into the face of tentacled evil!”

Modiphius Entertainment will be releasing Achtung! Cthulhu: Showdown!™ (written by Dave Blewer and Mark Margraf) as part of their ever-expanding Achtung! Cthulhu line in the Spring of 2014, supported by sets of Secret War Unit & Event Cards, giving players all the possible units they could need in an easy to use playing card format alongside further campaigns and supplements opening up other well-known fronts.

Brigade Games have some nice figures to their Weird War range. Titled either German Spectres or as on the photo Nazi Spectres. These should certainly find a place in any Weird War collection!



Tin Man Miniatures Kickstarter

Tin Man Miniatures has a small but high quality range of sword and planet figures in their range.

As a way of increasing the range a little more rapidly, Tin Man Minis owner John Winter has decided to go down the Kickstarter route.



Looking at the artwork and greens produced so far, John seems to be concentrating mainly on the female characters, a fair policy, as I am sure they will help more the campaign foward a pace, however I would have like to have seen a little more variety in the initial selection of figures.


There are however, some interesting designs that I am sure will have appeal both to Sword and Planet gamers as well as games in other genres...


Check out the Kickstarter, and if nothing else have a look at Tin Man Miniatures Website, it's worth a look...
