Today is Remembrance Sunday, where we spare a few minutes to think of those who have fallen defending their countries. We play at wargames, because some people have, or have had, the courage to defend us and our homelands. Often they have paid with their lives in far away places. You can donate here, or via other ways, or simply just remember them.
Hot on the heels of The Witching Hour, comes November’s releases. We have the Department X Starter Set, print copies of Once and Future (until 7th November, if you buy a print copy and give us the order number for your PDF, you’ll get £4.50 off, the same as if you had bought the combined Print+PDF deal) and Once and Future/Myths and Monsters Cards.
AND finally… we can reveal our license… Australian action comedy DANGER 5! Set in a bizarre 1960s WW2, watch our slightly inept heroes try to kill Hitler (and fail!) Truly original TV, this is right up 7TV’s street. Why not check out the Danger 5 Starter Set contents (8 models, 3 D5 dice, stat booklet) while you google it on YouTube. Once you’ve watched it, you can’t unwatch it! Many many thanks to Kate and all at Dinosaur for enabling this one to happen.
AND we’ve still to release the Chronal Commandos, they’ll be along by the end of next week!
The auspicious date of All Hallows’ Eve seems right to unleash The Witching Hour – an unofficial 7th Voyage PDF-only supplement based on the folklore and gothic horror of the 17th and 18th centuries. New model types you can include in your casts include Witch Hunters, Plague Doctors, Zealots and Colonies of Bats(!) Add to this new Event and Gifts of the Gods cards, film guides, plus stats for stars such as Ichabod Crane and the Headless Horseman. This product has all the production values of any Crooked Dice product with the spilled out brain contents of Glenn Allen, who did all the writing.
Graeme is getting packed for the drive down to somewhere called ‘England’ tomorrow, to join Karl at GrimUpNorth show FIASCO at the
Savile New Hall, in Leeds. We’ll be trading with all our wares to date, plus Graeme will be monkeying around with a 7TV demo board. Plus we’ll have some top secret 2nd Edition work in progress material, and details of our new license. Be there, or continue to be in the dark. Plus the clocks go back on Sunday, that’ll help.
So, if you haven’t got an email by tonight saying your outstanding order has been completed, it’ll get done on Tuesday when Graeme gets back.
7th Voyage: Once and Future supplement PDF available
Once and Future is our next supplement for 7th Voyage, written by Helena Nash. Designed to be used alongside 7th Voyage, this new material expands on the action:engine rules presented in that core rulebook.
This book draws on three sources of folklore: the legends of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table, the saga of Beowulf and the tales of the outlaw Robin Hood. Rules for new weapons, Co-Stars, Extras, Gifts and Spells bring the mythology of the Dark Ages to life, and with a film guide containing three sets of hero and villain casts, you have everything you need to stage your own legendary battles.
It’s available in PDF right now!
The print versions of the book and the deck of new gifts and events card accessories will be available later this month.
In store now are four more X Commandos from Department X, the carefully named X-Commandos 2. Sculpted by Ernst Veingart, this mix of one male and three female modern troopers come armed with pistols, SMG and rifles. Each model is £3.25 each or £12 for all four. Go get ‘em!
The Paranormal Exterminators (PX) and the Accessories have SOLD OUT. If you have ordered one or both, check to see if you have an email confirming your order has been completed (posted/shipped). If not, you’re in the queue for the next lot. Meanwhile, anyone else can still order them, and we’ll send them out as soon as we get them, and get to your order (it will be at near the bottom of the pile though…).
We have put another order of lead in, this should be with us next week, hopefully early next week. If your order contains other items, the whole order will be held until we get the PX restocks in.
SHH!… Don’t tell anyone! Looks like we will be doing another 5 ‘very similar’ models to go with these.
This month we have 4 suited and booted Paranormal Exterminators, fully equipped with Protean Packs, containment units and beam guns. And a very slimy Spook*. Just in case you need to call them. We also have their Exterminator Gear available on its own sprue, these are also available as part of the 5 for £7 Deal.
*: Spook does not glow. Or float.
EXTRA!: Dice HQ has been swamped by orders, show restocks and trade orders. Working through it as fast as time allows, so please be a bit patient. Next month we will rope in some Girl Guides to do the packing, they’ll do anything if you tell them it’s for a puppy charity.
EXTRA (Part 2): Restocks of The Vortex Adventurers.
Inch High Spy-Fi! 7TV is our 28mm skirmish wargame set in the bygone age of the 1960s-70s. Build your own cast or play with one of ours, save the world or dominate it – all before bedtime.
