Sci-Fi Frills and Fauna


I dont tend to promote Kickstarters on this blog terribly often, for various reasons.  As this boutique project is particularly close to my hobby heart I decided to mention it.  I have been waiting for something like the Sci-fi Frills & Fauna miniatures since 1988.

Some of you reading this may have ended up on this blog due to the ongoing Deathworld/Alien Flora & Fauna Project.  Any of you that enjoy the sorts of weirdness found in the bestiary sections of various 1980s sci-fi gaming publications are sure to find some fun things in this Kickstarter.

In many respects this is precisely the sort of thing that Kickstarter was set up to enable: its wonderfully niche and hugely appealing to a small slice of humanity.

The Frills and Fauna Kickstarter is competitively priced too, all the more so if you happen to be paid in anything but GBP at the moment.  Well worth a look, even if only a couple of items take your fancy, the KS accommodates it.

Silver Tower Update


All going well there should be a series of Silver Tower related posts appearing here soon.

The Silver Tower Project described a little while ago went rather well and I will write a short report about it soon.  It has made me excited about getting my own fully painted set ready over the next few months.  With that in mind I have put up a painting record page to publicly encourage me to get on with it.

If you fancy a look at the plan, then click on the “Silver Tower” tab at the top of the page, or else just click HERE.
