New Kickstarter launches Friday 29th March!

KS launch banner

Get ready for 7TV: Pulp with a new range of pulse-pounding pulp miniatures from Crooked Dice!

We will launch a new Kickstarter on Friday 29th March at 7pm GMT and close on Monday 1st April at 7pm GMT. It’s a short campaign with three main simple pledges – six heroes (£22), six villains (£22) or all 12 (£40) to support the upcoming release of the 7TV: Pulp boxed set in June 2019.

These miniature designs are based on the Star and Co-Star profiles from the forthcoming 7TV: Pulp game. However, while they complement the existing Crooked Dice range and 7TV skirmish rules, they are suitable for any pulp, horror or modern gaming settings. Sculpts have been brought to life by the very talented Ernst Veingart and will be cast in white metal.

7TV Pulp 2

7TV: PULP! Production Blog goes live

Prepare to battle over the tabletop in two-fisted exchanges pitting heroic derring-do against the dastardly machinations of megalomaniacal villains and otherworldly horrors.

7TV: Pulp is a tabletop skirmish game inspired by the American cinema serials and pulp magazines of the 1930s and 1940s. It is the product of a unique collaboration between Crooked Dice Game Design Studio, developers of 7TV and 7TV: Apocalypse, and Creative Writing students from Edge Hill University in the northwest of England.

The 7TV: Pulp blog offers information and resources for anyone interested in wargaming in a variety of pulp genres. If you love old movie serials, pulp fiction magazines, or any of the action-adventure movies they gave birth to and wish you could realize it on the tabletop – you’ll soon be able to! The boxed game will launch at the UK Games Expo 2019 on 31st May-2nd June.

Alien Invaders

Alien Invaders released

We have two new packs released this month – Alien Invaders 1 and Alien Invaders 2. These didn’t make the Kickstarter, but due to popular demand we tried to get them into production ASAP! So these visitors from another world say they come in peace, but are their motives more sinister? Keep your families (and your rodents) safe as their take over begins…

7TV:Apocalypse Kickstarter now live!

So today welcomes the end of the world… At 8pm tonight we launched the 7TV:APOCALYPSE KICKSTARTER.

We hope to fund a brand new 7TV boxed set7TV:Apocalypse – to expand our cinematic skirmish rules into the post-apocalyptic (PA) genre. This is supported with over a hundred 28mm miniatures.

Crooked Dice already publish 7TV – wargaming in the world of cult tv. These fun and flexible skirmish rules allow you to recreate any type of cinematic action on the tabletop. For the past eighteen months, we have been working on expanding 7TV into other settings – and the first is the wide-ranging post-apocalyptic genre!

Please spread the news far and wide and tell your wargaming friends, close family and strangers at bus stops.

Price changes

Crooked Dice will be VAT registered from 01 August. On the one hand, that’s good news as it’s a signal the company is growing and things are going well. The downside is that for the first time in ten years there will be some adjustments to figure pricing.

We always tried to supply quality, reasonably priced specialist miniatures and that aim won’t change. And after a review and lots of wailing and gnashing of teeth, I think that on the whole, products are priced about right. However, there are a few historic pricing anomalies that I am going to standardise – and a few of the larger packs will be going up.

The changes are not radical – in fact you’ll notice that some pack prices don’t change at all. There will be a few exceptions, but in general, these will be the new prices:

  • All Accessories (heads, weapon sprues) – £2
  • All single figures – £4
  • All packs of TWO figures – £8
  • All packs of THREE figures – £10
  • All packs of FOUR UNIT figures – £12
  • All packs of FOUR PERSONALITY figures – £15
  • All packs of FIVE UNIT figures – £15
  • All Starter Casts packs (8 figures) – £20

Increases will start to take to take effect over the next couple of weeks. With over 300 products in the catalogue it will take a while to manually change everything!

As a way of softening the blow, any orders from now until the end of July will receive a FREE random figure with any order over £10.

Resin will be reviewed separately as it’s less consistent than the lead.

I hope this won’t put you off supporting Crooked and buying our lovely toys and I’ll thank you in advance for your patience as I work through all the admin.
