This is the hardest post I've ever had to make.

This is my friend David Phillips. Monday night around 8pm he was tragically killed in a car accident caused by two juveniles in a stolen car.

Two hours before that I had my last conversation with him. He leaves behind a wife and a large group of friends and family that will miss him forever.

To help raise funds to offset the expense of his burial and memorial, we are donating 100% of all Brink of Battle and Epic Heroes sales on our Lulu store for the month of May to David's wife and family.

We hope we can make a difference in the face of such a senseless tragedy. Thanks for your support!

Scrappers: Post-Apocalyptic Skirmish Wargames

We’ve been keeping things pretty close to the vest about our Post-Apocalyptic book in the works, but we are now able to reveal and proud to announce that last year we signed a contract with Osprey Publishing to produce Scrappers: Post-Apocalyptic Skirmish Wargames for their Osprey Wargames division!

Scrappers will be a hardbound book complete with core rules based on the Brink of Battle skirmish system and with complete rules for campaign games in the wastelands of the near future! As with Brink of Battle, each Crew will range between 3-15 models per side.

Players assemble Recovery Crews who explore the ruins of ancient Earth for lost artifacts and scraps of useful technology fighting off enemy Crews in the process. Scrapper Crews can belong to one of six Factions or be freelancers selling their scraps of tech to the highest bidder. Crew members can be one of three Lifeform types: True Human, Mutant, or Synthetic. Rugged human survivors, mutated humanoids & animals, and deadly robots fight for every last piece of tech they can find!

Scrappers: Post-Apocalyptic Skirmish Wargames is targeted for release in the spring of 2017.

Epic Heroes Plug & Play Force Rosters

After releasing Brink of Battle, I received quite a bit of feedback that was contrary to what gamers were telling me in years previous when it came to building your own force or using an 'army list'. Since one of my goals with BoB was to destroy the Metagame and Power Creep, army lists, where I tell you what you can play with, went out the window.

Then, with the design burden shifted over to their side of the table, a lot of players found it too challenging to assemble a force, even with the step by step guide I put in our Downloads section of the website. And some just honestly admitted they were too lazy for the build your own concept.

So, for Epic Heroes, we decided to paint up 13 different forces and supply pregenerated rosters for people who wanted to play right away, or who at a minimum see what the new rules looked like all put together.  So here they are. All 13 for your perusal.














Since we listed to our customers, we are working on a pre-generated plug & play booklet that will have most of the Fantasy tropes pre-packaged with optional add-on's to speed force construction and let players get over what seems to be the biggest hurtle in the beginning.

Noch Weiter, Elf!
