Prestige Traits!

One of the new features in our fantasy supplement Epic Heroes is the introduction of Prestige Traits. These are special abilities or training that enhance or build upon other Traits that must first be had by the model. Once the requirement is met the model may buy the Prestige Trait, which has a Supply Point cost and takes a slot for Trait maximums.

One such Trait builds on the Abomination In...born Trait and represents the mind bending terrors from the great Beyond...

Eldritch Horror (PST)
Requires: Abomination

Teetering on the edge of madness, this dread terror stalks the minds of those who oppose it. As enemies approach, waves of gibbering insanity flood over them, reducing them to mewling idiots, rife with drool.

Enemy models within this model’s CMD/2 Rating in inches suffer a CMD/2 penalty.
10 SP
Lovecraft & Smith would approve. :)

Demo Day at Gamescape North!

Our Brink of Battle Demo Cadre made a showing last Sunday at Gamescape North in San Rafael California.  It was me and Drew "Daimyo" Davies throwing dice with the Gamescape crew.
The thing I love about Gamescape North is that they really get behind their products.  As you can see this month they are running a "Play with the Designer" series. I thought that was really neat. 
If you haven't been to Gamescape North you are missing out.  Andre and his staff, Max & Jordan, have the shop running like a well oiled machine.  Just look at the selection below, and talk about friendly service!  Definitely one of my favorite shops.
As many of you know, I used to be a retailer and built a strong customer base at Hobbies of Reno with Alan Washburn. Therefore I appreciate good 'face out' merchandizing. :)  Below you see the kind of company BoB is keeping.  A great compliment to other skirmish options.
And here is Daimyo in the center hard at work.  On the far left is John Murphy, a friend we made at Pacificon earlier this year.  And on the far right is Andre Sisneros, co-owner of Gamescape North.
We look forward to doing a demo of Epic Heroes in the near future as we ramp up to ConQuest Sacramento in April!
Thanks again to Andre and his team for a day well spent playing Brink of Battle!
