  1. What does the month of September have in store for fans of Wild West Exodus, Mythos and those who enjoy building the perfect tabletop setting? A whole host of goodies. Wild West Exodus: Legendary Cloud Runner For fans of Warrior Nation, September sees the release of Legendary Cloud Runner. She and her enormous hawk, named Oniya, assist forces as aerial scouts, looking for signs of invaders and interlopers, and directing warriors to where they are most needed. Regularly calling upon other great spirit energy beasts, such as the Fire Eagle (or Great Thunderbird) to serve during battles, helping to bring Death from Above. The Great Spirit manifests itself in many different ways. Spirit Walkers have the ability to alter their physical form into that of a hybrid between man and animal. Some in the Warrior Nation are blessed with the ability to move and control the flow of their life energy like Shaman such as Chief Raven Spirit. Read the full description here. Price: £25.00 Mythos the Game: Odani Travellers For followers of Mythos, September bestows the gift of a new faction: Odani Travellers. Embodying everything it means to be a real "freak of nature", the Odani are dangerously charming - not only for those confronting them on the tabletop. Skilful misdirection is one of the Odani's strengths, if you didn’t plan on collecting these miniatures for your games, prepare to welcome this enchanting mix of miniatures into your painting projects lineup! The future may not be read with impunity. The threads of destiny for a person are wrapped through the days of their lives, known only to the omniscient beings known to their followers as the Fates. The secrets of the Fates are hidden from the eyes of mere mortals and only those with the gift of Mythos may begin to lift that veil. Read the full description here. Price: £35.00 New Terrain: Gloomburg Sprawl Set If you're a fan of fantasy and historical wargames, you're going to love the new tabletop scenery set, coming out at the end of September. The new Gloomburg Sprawl Set offers six new charming pieces of 28mm full-colour scenery - for spending less time setting the scene, and more time gaming. The mists curl and eddy around the dark village as a gentle breeze disturbs the deserted streets. The only sounds are the crows who gather on several roofs. Shadowed figures move in the darkness, hollow-eyed inhabitants of a once-thriving market town. What evil could have wrought this change? What will you find lurking in the gatehouse at the edge of town? Read the full description here.

  2. We've got new releases lined up for Wild West Exodus and Mythos so without further ado, let's have a look at the miniatures due to be released at the end of August! Wild West Exodus: Legendary Morgan Earp The youngest of the Earp brothers has had a legendary makeover. From today, you can pre-order Legendary Morgan Earp for Wild West Exodus. Resculpted and emboldened by his new mechanical body, courtesy of Nikolai Tesla, he stands proud, taller, and poised for tabletop action. His miniature embodies everything it means to be a superpowered man of steel. With extraordinary guns fused to both hands, this miniature is the perfect addition to any Lawmen Posse. You may be thinking, who's that is with Morgan? Well, in true Scarface style, say hello to Morgan's little friend! Assisting this marvellous mechanical man in every tabletop battle is his trusty HWK Automata, Hawkshaw. Designed to repair machines, Hawkshaw also acts as a decoy, flushing out enemies for Morgan to shoot and destroy. What happens if you pair them with a few K9's? You get a force not to be reckoned with. Of course. Be sure to pre-order this dynamic duo to quite literally bring some Armoured Justice to the town of Red Oak. You can find an FLGS using our store locator or shop online from our website and Wayland Games. Due to be released at the end of August 2020. Looking to collect more of the Earp brothers? You'll find the notable Wyatt in his legendary form here, and the well-respected Virgil alongside Kyle the Black in the Meat Grinder Posse. Mythos The Game: Silver Venators Have you succumbed to the madness that is Mythos? Do you hunger for more factions to collect? Then we have good news. It's time to introduce another faction joining the Shadow War and the miniatures that form: the Silver Venators. The Venators arrived around the same time as the Custos Crypta. They're a coven of masked huntresses who travel the angles of time as their master's demand. Each Venator is entrusted with a silvered key, an object attuned to their masters and own Mythos energies. Exploiting the powers of portal travel, they're able to emerge at preordained points in time to destroy followers of the Old Ones. These powerful women of wonder are protectors of destiny with one aim: restore the flow of time and bring order to the chaos caused by the Shadow War. At. All. Costs. Their miniatures are purposely cloaked, disguised by dark hooded robes and reflective silver face coverings to evoke anonymity and unease. Intensified by the large, brightly polished weapons that they wield. The addition of two Tyndaly'th Hounds completes the Silver Venators Faction Starter Set. Once a victim has been marked by the Venators sword, they can call on these dreadful and difficult beasts. But, only ever as a weapon of last resort or they risk falling prey themselves... Be sure to pre-order the unrelenting Silver Venators from your FLGS or online at Wayland Games to add them to your Mythos miniatures collection. Due to be released at the end of August 2020.

  3. Today we welcome characters ready to embrace their new abilities onto the tabletop. How will their miniatures fare in the warfare of Wild West Exodus and Mythos? Let's get into it. Mr Ears When we first previewed this sculpt, it was wildly popular, and now he's finally joining the frontier. Introducing Girauld Eres, a Parisian naturalist with a real passion for animal physiology. Blessed by an impossible solution to a previous accident, he now identifies as ‘Mr Ears’! He's not only a great ape, but he's also a killer gorilla whose miniature is full of character (look at that hat) and intent. Wielding the technology of the Enlightened, this intriguing primate is available to pre-order from today. Mr Ears is almost ready to embark on his journey to Antarctica, but first, he's to reunite with his old friends Katherine Holst, Warwick Hudson and the rest of the Soul Hunters in the Wild West. Girauld Eres was one such associate, a Parisian naturalist who had developed into a minor celebrity as he toured Paris society with his collection of primates. Girauld’s real passion lay in animal physiology and his personal menagerie was home to some impressive specimens. Showing a talent for specimen capture, he was approached by Warick Hudson and earned a sponsorship into the Covenant as an associate following his collaboration on the spectral containment technology with Hudson and Katherine Holst.

Price: £23.00 Brotherhood of Belial Starter Set It started with a mission to rid the streets of a small gang of deviants, responsible for a series of unspeakable crimes. But now has manifested into a rebirth of hosts for the ancient power of the chiropteran god, Belial. Winging their way into the Shadow War, the Brotherhood of Belial - the sixth faction to be released for Mythos - is now available to pre-order. Jim Dugan, accompanied by sergeant Maria Marquez, Oliver Driver and Florence Delaney and the monstrous Dan Flack complete the Brotherhood. These officers carry the curse bequeathed to them, their miniatures sporting demonic claws and lesions caused by tainted energy. Harnessing their newfound power, they continue to serve the city, unwittingly nurturing the dark embrace of god Belial. For better or worse. Augusta, Maine was a sleepy city with a low crime rate that was dealt with at a leisurely pace by the municipal police department. That is until one winter, when a spate of vicious crimes hit Augusta leaving a bloody trail of destruction in their wake. Murders, beatings, rapes and numerous muggings were perpetrated by what appeared to be a small gang of deviants. Read the full description here. Price: £35.00 You can pre-order Mr Ears and the Brotherhood of Belial Starter Set with your FLGS, just use our store locator to find your closest one, and online at Wayland Games now - these pre-orders are due to be released at the end of July 2020.

Today, under the control of the Crypt Guardian, these skin-crawling characters join the shadow war of Mythos. The Custos Crypta extends its influence by mentally compelling humans, drawing in mortal servants and expanding on their formidable biology - some may say they’re the most “encaptivating” Mythos faction to date. Be sure to pre-order the Custos Crypta Faction Starter Set, to see how these elusive insects fare on the tabletop. The story of the Custos Crypta begins in the year 700 BCE at the height of the Kushite Empire when the authority of Pharaoh Neferkare Shabaka was considered absolute. Shabaka was said to be blessed by the ancient Egyptian Goddess Khepera. It was in Khepera’s name that Shabaka ruled, from Nubia to the Nile Delta and a blood sacrifice was made daily in his name.

  5. To dedicate a life to the sole purpose of gaining knowledge is a righteous path to excel down. Often, the need to find answers becomes an unhealthy obsession. Yet some seek the truths in their world to dominate others mentally. It becomes a powerful weapon to push inferiority onto weaker-minded beings. This path is a dangerous one, and it is the Path of Chronozon... a life of which Chester Barreman was suited highly to. Chester Barreman may have chosen this life, but the Path of Chronozon chose him. When he was younger, Chester excelled in knowledge in history, excelling further in his interest in ancient civilisations and their religions. He became engrossed by the belief system and its connections between its acolytes’ world and reality-wide. His studies into the depth of knowledge matured at an alarming rate and his thirst for knowledge became a harmful obsession. He was quick to sacrifice his sanity that he made a subconscious bargain to dig deeper. He was now unrecognisable to himself in his reflection, all that stared back at him in the mirror was the dark soulless eyes of the Chronozon. He had become stronger as the mark began to settle on him. He was renewed and reincarnated with an abundance of information. His soul still remained intact within his vessel, but he walked the life of the demon. He walked the Path of Chronozon. Led by Barreman’s protege, Lydia Heron, the followers of the Path wear masks and wear the symbols of the abyss proudly and with honour. Not only does this superficially hide their identity for the gazing eyes of others, but purges their own individuality to become one with the Path. The Path of Chronozon is home to many followers. All of which harnesses irreplaceable knowledge. All of which serve a purpose as an integral cog in their faction. Barreman has taught them that Chronozon’s function is to destroy the ego, which ensures escapism from themselves, their independence and their individuality. To gain the ability to see beyond two dimensions and drift beyond the abyss of occult cosmology. Chester has harnessed many skills to excel his knowledge and power, including mastering the art of summoning through a demonic ritual. By the sacrifice of a servant’s lucid state - a spawn of Chronozon enters into this reality. This horrific abomination is not dumb, it recognises Barreman’s mark of Chronozon and follows closely to his demands and needs. The spawn is no pet, it follows instructions from his master… it serves as an integral part of the team, just as much as his followers. A demon of the umbra, the spawn is the embodiment of the abyss in cold blood and fury. Its versatility allows it to sweep through any environment with ease and stealth with the aid of its vorpal teeth and claws. A powerful ally for a powerful team. As Chester guides his way through the Path of Chronozon, he is not naive to the fact that there are more factions are arising, as The Shadow War looms overhead. They too have hope of success and harnessing the power of Mythos. His grasp and understanding has opened his eyes further to the larger skirmish between the imminent awakening of the Gods of old, and their mortal pawns. This is no battle like those of men. This battle is due to be something more sinister and insidious. The servants of the Chronozon are prepared for the creatures that lurk behind their Gods… and wish to gain supremacy in the constant struggle of this war. The Path of Chronozon Faction Set is available now, from Wayland Games and your FLGS, so be sure to find your closest store with our store locator. View the full article
  6. The influence of the ancient force known as the Wyld is imminent - unworldly power originates with those who walk in its shadow. Today, we announce another fantastic Faction Starter Set as available to pre-order: Wyldborne enters the tabletop horror that is Mythos! Arriving in true bone-chilling style, Wyldborne exists to uphold the old ways, slaughtering those who interfere. This new faction is much more than a force of nature; they're devoted servants of the Wyld. Unrelenting and uncompromising. Not only are these miniatures terrifyingly terrific, but they're also perfectly-detailed. They encapture the real horrors lying in wait for players daring to compete in the Shadow War. The Good sisters, a terrifying amalgam of beast and nightmare, a pair of serpents bound to service and a mystical Nuckalavee, are now ready to make their move and enact the whispers of Wyld, echoing from deep within the shadowy forests. If you like the look of Wyldborne and want to join the twisted head-to-head confrontations of Mythos, you can pre-order the Wyldborne Faction Starter Set from your FLGS and online at Wayland Games - released at the end of May.

  7. As the situation with the coronavirus COVID-19 continues to develop and the United Kingdom enters a further extended period of social isolation, we've been following the advice and instruction of the Government closely. As we announced previously, we have already shut down our in-house manufacturing department until we are confident it is right for our team to be able to return to work. The safety of our staff is paramount, and last week we decided it's in the best interest of the wider team to close the rest of the Studio too. As you may remember, back in February, we shared an update with you regarding the current state of events. The effect of this resulted in a delay in our plans in the second quarter of the year to launch the new edition of Dystopian Wars. The continued disruption caused in response to the pandemic means we must reschedule our plans through to the end of the third quarter too. You may hear from those in the Warcradle Studios team who are working remotely, keeping in touch with the community through social media during this time and putting together occasional Studio Diaries for the blog (like this one). That aside, all development, playtesting and design work at Warcradle Studios is on pause until we are confident it is practical and safe to resume. Those of you ordering directly from our retail partners and ourselves can rest assured you'll still receive your in-stock item(s). With a great deal of care, we have put processes in place to protect our warehouse and logistics staff so we can continue to dispatch in-stock orders, with as small a delay as possible. Warcradle products listed as "being reprinted" may be significantly delayed, as a result of us closing our in-house manufacturing department at this time. Nevertheless, these will be of high-priority when we're back up and running. Of course, our customer support team are still available to contact and are ready to answer any questions you might have, so don't hesitate to get in touch should you need to. We'll be keeping you all up-to-date as the situation develops, so be sure to keep an eye on our blog and social media. Of particular regret is that while the rules for Firestorm Armada are ready for our intended Open Beta in May, we must now accept that without a Studio running to support the Beta, and with players facing challenges in arranging even a simple gaming session to playtest, we must delay the launch until the Studio returns to full operation and the social distancing guidelines become less restrictive. We will announce a new date as soon as possible. In the interim, we hope to be discussing various rules and concepts through our social media pages as well as on the Studio Diary blog entries. Call it a pre-Beta Beta… Whatever Warcradle hobby you are enjoying this month, whether you're tackling your new Mythos models, assembling Theodore Roosevelt on his reptilian steed, or painting fleets of classic Dystopian Wars or Firestorm Armada ships, be sure to share your results with us and the rest of the community. This hobby of ours has an amazing ability to bring joy and light into even the most challenging of times. We hope you find that moment of hobby happiness in whatever you choose to do. Thank you all for your continued support and understanding during this unprecedented situation. Now more than ever, please take care of yourselves and each other. Stuart and the Warcradle Studios Team View the full article
  8. The Hidden Ones have made treacherous sanctuary to the coastal towns and villages across the globe. These Servants of the Pantheon have vastly thrived and expanded due to their avid dishonesty, depict, deception, and their continuous efforts in interbreeding. Their deeply incorporated community is linked closely to the sea, and their worship to deities such as Dread Father Dagon, Deep Mother Hydra, and many other ancient divinities connected closely to their devotion. At a fast pace, the rise of populated, sterile cities has pushed the Hidden Ones further into desolation and solitude, where their communities gain the ability to become easily overlooked and unrecognized. More to the Hidden Ones advantage. Regardless of their habitats within isolation, food is certainly not an issue. Looming close-by families prove to be beneficial to these ancient bloodlines, as their abilities to hide closely amongst the shadows ensures that their prey is restricted from escape. With the Shadow War unravelling, the Hidden Ones are wildly underestimated by their foes, which by the numbers they are growing: it is an overstep that their enemies will falter to. One particular isolated sea-skirted town is inhabited by the fair (but fishy) folk of Dunsmouth, Rhode Island, where authority is dictated by a putrid hag known as The Dunsmouth Witch. Soaked in wisdom of age, her origin is known to none, but she has resided in the disturbing and eerie town of Dunsmouth for over a century. Hearsay from surrounding townspeople tell the tale of a young, fair-looking woman, in the midst of mourning her still-born son. She walked into the sea in hope of ending her relentless pain with a departure into instantaneous darkness.Yet the woman did not suffer for much longer... She returned embracing a baby boy: an offering provided by the Sunken Pantheon. As the years passed, this son grew as strong as any man could, gained by the blessings of the deep made apparent beneath his rain-soaked sou’wester. Any threat to Dunsmouth is certainly sure to find the wrath of The Hidden Ones, to be greeted by The Dunsmouth Witch or her son, The Fisherman. The Fisherman has the reputation of being an ill-natured, violent and savage man. His presence is always lurking, however he is never visually present in town unless the tide is high and death is incoming. It has been widely known that the phantom of The Fisherman is the last thing in sight of a victim, before brutal death comes to collect the sufferer at the malice of a baneful fish hook. Born with a human mother, but no evidence of humanity within his flesh-suit; The Angler is none short of a monstrosity. His nauseating-induced skin is lubricous to touch, and its gaze is disconcerting with its prodigious and protruding eyes that cease to remain open. The Angler’s croaking, baying voice, clearly used for articulate speech, holds all the dark shades of expression which its staring face lacks. The Angler is both a child of Dunsmouth and progenitor from the deep. A true Deep One. A true acolyte and devotee, Molly Malone is desperate and distressed to find saviour within the abyss. Molly’s lineage and bloodline are devout worshippers, and have served the Sunken Pantheon across the ages. Molly is the youngest amongst twelve siblings, and due to her family’s long-line of dedication to The Mother, The Father and expanded deities, she finds herself embedded in emotional turmoil, over her worthiness and the potential for her to bring honour and glory in the impending Shadow War. Her recruitment by the hands of the Dunsmouth Witch, gave her newfound faith in herself being personally sought out for pending important duties. The boost of confidence which she needed, to see her pure purpose in the world that surrounds her. The colossal crustacean primitive of the unlit caverns of the abyss, Click-Clack known to remain hidden clutching the to the belly of the town’s trawlers. The immense crab, Click-Clack, needs to be enticed from his dark and dreary dwellings for when The Hidden Ones are at the hands of peril. Here, the monstrosity resides, often he roams and wanders the nearby shores to banquet on his ideal catch until he returns into the Dunsmouth grounds to receive his call of the Dread and the Deep. The Hidden Ones Faction Set is available now, from Wayland Games and your FLGS, so be sure to find your closest store with our store locator. Join the Shadow War with prowess and expertise to the terrain with the Hidden Ones. View the full article
  9. The road to hell is paved with good intentions. The police force of Augusta in Maine would discover the terrible truth of this aphorism. Let’s learn more about the events that cursed the Brotherhood of Belial, an exciting new faction for Mythos… A sleepy city, Augusta had a low crime rate that was dealt with at a leisurely pace by the municipal police department. That is until one winter when a spate of vicious crimes hit the city leaving a bloody trail of destruction in their wake. Murders, beatings, rapes and numerous muggings were perpetrated by what appeared to be a small gang of deviants. More crimes were committed in the first three weeks of the spree than had been recorded in the previous three years. Worse still, the gang proved to be incredibly elusive despite the best efforts of Lieutenant Jim Dugan. With a string of commendations to his name from his time in Chicago, Jim was expected to break the gang within a week. Three months later, the stress was really beginning to show on Jim and his team. Sergeant Maria Marquez, Jim’s trusted second in command, was struggling to even get a name on the gang from her usual sources, let alone who they were or where to find them. Reports from surviving victims were confused and in some cases totally unbelievable. Accounts alternated between the attackers being hulking, inhuman brutes and yet others claimed that they simply vanished after the incident, something that was seriously being considered due to the lack of success in tracking down even a single member of the gang. Oliver Driver, the department’s dog handler, was added to the team in an attempt to use the two faithful hounds in the city’s service. Even the highly talented noses of Storm and Shadow were unable to get a trace on the perpetrators of these ghastly crimes. In the face of mounting public pressure, Jim needed results and was becoming desperate. Jim followed a hunch that led him and his team to a set of abandoned freight houses on the banks of the Kennebec River. A lead from his undercover officer, Florence Delaney, had put five of the initial crimes in that area and Jim wondered whether the gang was had been operating further afield over time. Sure enough, with his team in tow, Lieutenant Dugan finally discovered the gang had been using a rotting attic as their hideout. It was unsurprising, with the stairs having long disintegrated and the attic completely inaccessible, that the location had been overlooked in the initial investigation. Bursting into the hideout, the police officers stumbled across the suspects enacting some sort of bizarre ritual. Candles covered the floor and walls, blood was daubed on the rotten floorboards in intricate patterns. In the horror and confusion, Florence Delaney fired a burst from her Thompson machine gun and all hell broke loose. In the ensuing firefight, not a single member of the gang, who later were revealed to be called the Son’s of Belial, walked out of that warehouse alive. The injured and the dead were consumed by a raging fire that engulfed the structure. Despite lacking and solid evidence in the aftermath, the crimewave that had gripped Augusta immediately ended and commendations for the whole team were readily issued. But it is a fool who thinks that an ancient power like the chiropteran god Belial would not punish those who slaughtered their acolytes and disrupted their rituals. In that moment, every member of Jim Dugan’s fateful team was touched by Belial and marked as his playthings. Each officer was cursed so that they could only exist as things shifting in form, somewhere between the winged creatures of Belial’s realm and the darkened aspects of the people that they once were. Some, like officer Dan Flack, revelled in their new form, feeling like nothing was lost in the transformation and the curse of Belial was akin more to a gift. Bound into this Brotherhood of Belial, these transformations were uncontrolled and painful at first. But over time many of the department learned to control it and even use their newfound strength and abilities in the line of duty as they continued to try to serve the city. Such is not the purpose of the Bat God, however, and as the police under Jim Dugan’s command respond to criminality with their newfound preference for brutality and lethal force, they unwittingly continue to carry out Belial’s great plan in the Shadow War. Until next time. Stuart View the full article
  10. Passed down from each generation, the Priory have been centering and concentrating in their mastery of the Mythos. This comprehension ensures the preparation for the impending future. This harnessed power is exactly what humanity is in need for, to channel and utilise control for an epic struggle against the wrath of the Old Ones. Aeons have passed and the beings with the power of divination have kept the secrets of the Mythos close and shared to only those worthy. Yet, current existence has been left in the dark, seemingly unaware of the greater power ready to be unleashed. The few blessed and advantaged handful of existence have barely scratched the surface to ensure their sanity remains intact. As the world progressed, technology did also, and humanity became ignorant of their destiny. The coveted lore and secrets of the Mythos had been buried for the ideals of progression in technology and modern society. Now, The Priory is being led by their mysterious coordinator Madame Adrestia, to guide them through the horrors and dangers that stalk in the shadow of darkness, so the Priory themselves can reign victorious in the Shadow War. The Priory goes back through generation to generation with faction members working worldwide in self-contained groups, known as ‘Cells’. Regardless of how advanced technology might be, Cells do not contact one another, and the clanship, recruitment and training relies solely on the shoulders of the Cell Leader. The leader of the cell that will be playable with miniatures is Professor Zachary Lazarus. He has held the torch of leadership within his Cell for over a decade, and continues to do so with wit and ambition. Lazarus has mastered skills in the arcane and occult, expertise in which will benefit both him and his vigorous Cell. He receives calls from the puzzling and mysterious Madame Adrestia, to ensure orders are put in place for the next mission for The Priory to succeed. Lazarus has been known for his avant-garde attitude, where he is more than often found in communications with his cat Zeus. Yet, interestingly enough; Zeus’ relationship with Lazarus is none like those with a regular house cat. This creature has the ability to comprehend every minute detail within his discussion with Lazarus, which makes him the perfect candidate to happily oblige with different tasks set by The Priory, such as infiltration, observation and stealthy invasion towards enemy factions. The anarchist-archaeologist Abigail Halsey is an irreplaceable cog of the Lazarus Cell, which her skills and expertise in research are often pivotal to conquer and overpower challenges that unravel for the Cell. Abigail’s advanced discoveries have uncovered many hidden gems within the world, such as the journal of Rabbi Judah Loew ben Bezalel and the Mythos secrets. These key items were used to mould and form the Golem Maharal. The Golem Maharal is a fifteen-foot tall animated clay malformation which contributes the power and brawn for the Lazarus Cell on their missions. Maharal’s prowess and physical strength has the ability to overpower the other members of the team, which makes him an integral part of the Lazarus cell. Bertie Smythe’s traumatic past has caved the pathway for his role within the Lazarus cell. Smythe was once a decorated pilot over the Western Front, and an emotionally scarring encounter in the clouds left him mentally affected by his outlook on the world. Thus transforming him into a very different man. Yet, the corrupted views in which he encountered throughout that distressing and damaging event will not deter him from battle. Smythe’s chosen weapon of destruction is an epic flamethrower, but paired with an affiliation with hard liquor and cigarettes on a constant supply, he is willing and ready to fight for justice. With all the technology that the Cell withholds, they are fortunate enough to be blessed with the mechanically minded Kitty Page, the newest addition to the already well-equipped Cell. Kitty joined the Cell after their mission in Providence against the Path of Chronozon. Although she is still relatively new fighting against the fell powers, she is more than qualified to team-up in the battlefield, not just ensuring the weaponry and tech is reliable, but she can truly hold her own. The Priory Faction Set is available to from Wayland Games and your FLGS, so be sure to find your closest store with our store locator. So join the Skirmish and fight side-by-side in horrors of the Shadow War with The Lazarus Cell with The Priory Faction Starter Set. View the full article
  11. "The dark and narrow streets of Dunsmouth, Rhode Island is home to a small fishing community. Typically in communities like this everyone knows everyone else’s business, but not in Dunsmouth. Here people keep themselves to themselves and there is a constant state of tension and paranoia that hangs over the town like a cloying mist. The well above average number of unexplained disappearances seem to go uninvestigated by the authorities and the inhabitants tend not to discuss such things with outsiders, if they take the time to talk to them at all. Dunsmouth is not a place to take a summer vacation, in fact, you would do well to give the place a wide berth." Introducing: The Dunsmouth Dock Set. This stunning new full-colour scenery set is comprised of no less than NINE scenery pieces in pre-painted detailed MDF.

  12. Valentine’s Day is usually associated with absurdly large teddy bears and dozens of roses, yet Valentine’s Day 2020 brings an eerie, macabre force that is lurking overhead. This year, Friday 14th marks the date of the first pre-orders for Mythos! The desolate world is in dire need to regain its’ footing after the reckless damage done by the Great War. The butchery and havoc caused has ensured that the vacant dark gods of ancient power and of distant memory are ready to emerge, and to be awakened from their absence. Disciples and followers have come into fruition causing rival cults and factions to be formed, and now they move amongst an unpredictable world, preparing for the cosmic deities to return to the battlefield. Engage in twisted head-to-head confrontations in casual play or create epic campaigns using the narrative guide, as the competing factions wage a shadowy war against each other and the wider world. Originally devised by Paranoid Miniatures, in a true bone-chilling style. All of this month’s pre-orders are set to be released at the end of March.

  13. Part of the appeal of a tabletop skirmish game is that different factions often provides players with a range of play styles to choose from. In Mythos this is certainly true, for while factions such as The Priory are a force of near equals, for our latest faction focus, we see that the Path of Chroniozon are very much a different story… Mythos - coming to a tabletop near you in 2020! It is a great and noble thing to devote a life to the pursuit of knowledge. Some are obsessed with knowledge for its own sake and push the boundaries of understanding within their chosen field of study. However, there are those who seek the power to dominate others through their knowledge. Chester Barreman is a man such as that. Even in his youth, Chester had an interest in history, more specifically in ancient civilisations and their religions. He was fascinated by the various interconnected beliefs of people across the globe stretching as far back as the written word, hieroglyphs or even cave paintings allowed. It was only as his studies matured that he realised he was at the beginning of a very dangerous path. A path defined by a single word: Chronozon. Chronozon is the dweller in the abyss. The demon of time and chaos was said to be the last great obstacle between the adept and enlightenment. Barreman knew at that moment that he couldn’t just know more about Chronozon. He had to know everything. The young scholar’s obsession with this powerful demon became all-encompassing and acts that would have been abhorrent to him only months earlier were now acceptable in his journey down the path. The sacrifice of his sanity was so subtle that Chester was not even aware that he had crossed the line. It became the norm for him to barely recognise his own reflection, instead seeing Chronozon staring back through dark soulless eyes. The demon of dispersion made manifest through Chester Barreman. As Chronozon’s mark settled on him, Barreman became more strong-willed and charismatic than ever before. His sanity returned for periods of time long enough to attract followers and instruct them in the way of the demon, though at times the abyss walks free of Barreman’s soul and manifests itself in terrible glory. The followers of the Path wear masks bearing the symbol of the abyss, all the better to purge their own identity. Barreman has taught them that Chronozon’s function is to destroy the ego, which allows the adept to move beyond the abyss of occult cosmology. Chester has refined a ritual that allows, through a sacrifice of a servant’s lucidity, a Spawn of Chronozon to be brought through to this reality. This demon of dispersion recognises Chronozon’s mark on Barreman and follows instructions as well as those whispered from the abyss by its master. A creature of the umbra, the spawn is the abyss in cold bestial fury, sweeping through any environment in a blur of vorpal teeth and claws. As Chester Barreman walks the Path of Chronozon assisted by demagogues like his protege, Lydia Heron, he has become aware of the larger struggle between the awakening gods of old and their mortal pawns. This Shadow War is fought not between armies and nations like the conflicts of men but as something more subtle and insidious. In such a struggle for supremacy, how can the erudite servants of Chronozon fail? Even vassals of a dark god need a good seneschal. Lydia Heron is such a woman. The Path of Chronozon are your classic faceless horde of cultists, each clamouring to appease their dark master by carrying out his will. Unlike Followers in many of the other factions, the servants of the Path of Chronozon are utterly expendable! This makes for a very different and uniquely enjoyable experience when compared to more individually valuable mortals such as those of The Priory. Look forward to seeing these abyssal servants later in the year. Until next time. Stuart View the full article
  14. Even in the modern world of the 1920’s there are still foreboding forests and dark corners of the countryside that are best left unexplored - especially at night! Let’s see what unnatural horrors lie in wait for Mythos players… Watch out, watch out, there are Wyldborne about! Mythos - coming to a tabletop near you in 2020! Naturalists and biologists will say that Nature is a living thing in perfect balance. But what they do not realise is that such harmony has only been reached through the influence of the ancient force known as the Wyld. This power was worshipped in its own right in ages past and even today can be found in the roots of many more… civilised religions. The Wyldborne still remember the old ways, however, and all the raw power that comes from those who walk in its shadow. Dorothy Good was raised in the Old Lore along with her sister, Mercy. Her mother would have had it no other way. When Dorothy was of age she began to listen to the Wyld in the forest. As the woodland willed her to, Dorothy laced the family soup with the fungi she had foraged the previous night. All of them fell deathly ill and, as promised, her parents quickly succumbed to the toxins. But for Dorothy and her sister, they awoke changed. Now the forest speaks to her every night. The Wyld has such plans for the Wyldborne… The serpents Blood and Nadrageel visited Good home the night after her parents died. Nature wastes nothing. Once the reptiles had fed, the sacrifice Dorothy had made to the Wyld bound the snakes to her service. Blood has become virtually inseparable from Dorothy, while his sibling (mirroring Dorothy’s relationship with her own sister) prefers to hunt independently and alone. Even so, at a glance, Blood and Nadrageel know when their mistress needs them to hunt down and hold someone fast… and when to feed. A literal avatar of the Wyld, Sernos is a terrifying amalgam of beast and nightmare. Known in antiquity as ‘the Goat’, Sernos has stalked the shadowy forests since before mankind could form words to name him. Waxing strong as the Wyld is nourished by the 20 million dead from the Great War, now that Dorothy has begun to gather the Wyldborne, Sernos answers the call. Sernos the Goat in all his feral majesty. The barrow-witch Mercy Good might be the older sister but she lacks the temperament to lead the Wyldborne. Mercy is all aggression and primal fury. She revels in murder and bloodshed wherever it might find release. Only the call of the Wyld compels her to serve alongside her sister, though the same voices that drive Dorothy to plot and scheme do nothing but fuel Mercy’s rage. Loren is a Nuckalavee. These mythical creatures have a rapacious hunger which causes them to hunt deer and other prey in the deep forests. Stepping between shadows and preferring to hunt by moonlight, Loren is nonetheless a capable member of the Wyldborne. Strong and perceptive, Loren understands the power of the Wyld all too well. As long has her voracious appetites are sated she can be relied upon to fearlessly attempt any task that Dorothy Good may require of her. The Wyldborne are much more than a force of nature. They are servants of the ancient force that dwells in the shadowed corners of the world. With bestial guile, they make their move out into the wider Mythos setting. Stay tuned for more before the tabletop skirmish horror hits stores in early 2020. Until next time. Stuart View the full article
