Eureka Miniatures: New 28mm Bronze Age Greeks Released

Eureka Miniatures released their new 28mm Bronze Age Greeks featuring some excellent looking infantry, civilians and chariots for this exciting period!

Eureka is proud to announce a new range of Bronze Age Greeks perfect for recreating the most famous of all sieges, Troy, or simply for raiding your neighbours. These sea-borne warriors can be used from roughly 1600 - 1100 BC (and much later for light infantry). Some of these figures may also make suitable Sea Peoples or other island cultures from the period.

We at Eureka have worked tirelessly to give you enough variation and options to kit out a full force comprising infantry, command, chariots and light support (44 foot, 2 chariots). We have even supplied some wailing women to see your army off on their ships and some spare heads for you to customise your army even further. We introduce Jack Garley who has been in charge of research for this project and it is the first one he has completed for us. We think he has done himself and us proud and we hope you agree. This is an exciting and interesting period so any suggestions for expansion are welcome, just send us an email. Check all miniatures here

ResInAere: Gravetides, an Undead Fleet for Naval Fantasy Wargaming Kickstarter Inbound

ResInAere: Gravetides, an Undead Fleet for Naval Fantasy Wargaming Kickstarter launches on the 23rd of March! Check the unique resin cast vessels below and master the high seas!

We are two Italian brothers with a passion for gaming and modelling, and we’ve finally decided to do our very own Kickstarter, hoping to find some support to further develop the projects we have been working on for a long time. Among all the games we have played in the past, we have a soft spot for naval wargaming played with fantasy warships with strange powers, that allow to field bizarre and greatly characterized vessel models. Our Kickstarter offers an undead naval fleet composed by resin hand sculpted models, that strive to recapture the look and the feeling of the miniatures of the last two decades of the past century, that in our minds remains the ‘golden age’ of tabletop wargaming, without renouncing to an original touch.

Even if our fleet can be used with any in-print and out-of-print fantasy naval rules, they are also part of our Gravetides project, our own naval rules still in development, where the classic fantasy races and different undead reigns wage war among each other, and against a sorcerous parasite from another plane of existence, in a dying world were naval battles, due to the relentless rising of the seas level, are more and more prevalent. If this Kickstarter is a success, we plan to create more fleets, and actually try to publish (in a form or another) the Gravetides core rules. The Kickstarter will go live on the 23rd of March. Find the Gravetides Facebook page at:

Drifting Mausoleums are a daunting and terrifying sight: constructed from the carcasses of a giant abyssal fish or some other marine creatures, they bring into battle an imposing mausoleum that hosts - guarded by a circle of necromancers - the phylactery of a mighty Lich, whose magical energy is channeled by the sorcerers to fuel the ship movement, and to create the defensive aura of decay that surrounds its massive bulk. In addition to its magical powers, the Drifting Mausoleum is heavily armed with batteries of catapults capable of firing on every side of the vessel, giving it a massive firepower that makes it a formidable warship.

Breaking! Fireforge Games: Fantasy Forgotten World Plastic Miniatures, Wargame Rules and Setting

Fireforge Games shared some more information with Wargame News and Terrain about their upcoming Fantasy Forgotten World Kickstarter campaign to fund no less than six different plastic boxed sets for their Fantasy Forgotten World setting, miniatures and rules.

The campaign will allow the production of six different plastic boxed sets for their newly announced Forgotten World fantasy range. The Kickstarter will contain two different factions, the stout Northmen and another not further revealed plagued human faction. The actual goal for the Kickstarter will be the creation of a fantasy starterset which will contain the above mentionned miniatures along with fantasy rules. The previewed pictures show the digital renders for the Northern Infantry which will be one of the available miniature kits. 

Fireforge Games Plastic Fantasy Forgotten World Northern Infantry

The picture below shows the scale compatibility of these upcoming Fireforge Games miniatures alongside miniatures from their historical miniatures and fantasy miniatures of Games Workshop. As you can see these fit in great and will allow you to use parts from different manufacturers and Fireforge Games to create even more unique miniatures for your miniature collection.

Fireforge Games Plastic Fantasy Forgotten World Northern Infantry Scale Comparison

The Forgotten World Kickstarter will be launched when all the miniatures are ready, so the date isn't set in stone yet but is planned for this summer. I can imagine that these new plastic miniatures will be very popular due to their very nice design and scale compatibility with both Fireforge Games miniatures and those of other popular manufacturers such as Games Workshop's Warhammer miniatures and Northstar Miniatures' Oathmark and Frostgrave miniatures. As always keep updated through Wargame News and Terrain and get your daily wargame news direct from the tabletop miniature frontlines!

Fogou Models: The Razorback Shack and Barrow Entrance Scenery Reviewed!

Today we will check out some Fogou Models scenery pieces from their lovely post-apocalyptic, historical and fantasy scenery ranges which feature all sorts of really nicely detailled tabletop miniature terrain pieces. In the following review we will take a closer look at the Razorback Shack and the fantasy Barrow Entrance.

Fogou Models is the new tabletop wargaming venture of owner and creative modeller, Christopher. Fogou Models currently sells both post apocalyptic and fantasy scenery although the latter is also suited for historical settings and other purposes. The terrain range is designed and produced to fit with both 28mm and heroic 28mm miniatures catering for the two most popular wargaming scales currently available on the market. The scenery pieces are cast in Jesmonite, which is a composite of gypsum powder and acrylic resin. This is very strong and can be carved, filled, drilled, sanded as with other resins and plasters. If I'm not mistaken Christopher was also the previous owner of Pardulon Models which sold all kind of neat wargame scenery and miniatures. The Pardulon Models range was recently sold to Crooked Dice Games and looks like Fogou Models is the new creative outlet for the former owner.

The Razorback Shack

Today we will take a look at the lovely The Razorback Shack from their growing post apocalyptic range which features several detailled shacks, scenic pieces such as barrels and junk barricades. The start of this scenery range allows you to build a small post apocalyptic hamlet or desolate space frontier town such as seen in Firefly and Star Wars to name a couple of iconic science fiction universes. As mentionned before this piece is scaled for both 28mm and heroic 28mm miniature ranges.

Looking at the received The Razorback Shack I was really impressed by the design, look and detail of the building. The shack really looks like a hastily made shelter, constructed from all sorts of materials such as corrugated steel sheets, concrete bricks and wood. As you might have noticed the piece is supplied in two pieces, the actual shack and the removable roof easily allowing you to place miniatures inside. The shack is therefor detailled at the exterior and interior allowing you to also use the interior for skirmish wargames and roleplaying adventures.  The mixture of the used textures will make the painting of the building really easy as you can easily drybrush and wash the detailled surfaces. The building is cast in the Jesmonite, a casting material that I hadn't handled before but actually really felt like a mixture between plaster and resin to give you an impression of the feel. Miniature shown in the pictures below is a 28mm sized Games Workshop Lord of The Rings Morannon Orc.

The Barrow Entrance

The other terrain piece I have received is the Barrow Entrance which can easily be used in multiple fantasy and historical settings but can also find its way on the tabletop battlefield serving as a primitive science fiction structure. The fantasy and historical range includes all sorts of natural stone build structures for which the creator used hand casted plaster bricks, sanded to shape to build the original master scenery pieces. Quite a labor intensive work but certainly worth the effort looking at the achieved details. Due to the use of individidual stones, the detail is superb and will again take drybrushing and washing techniques very well along with offering a great surface for practising some weathering techniques.

The Barrow Entrance is build out of these natural looking stones with three large stones forming the actual entrance to an underground structure. This specific piece is actually designed to be modelled into a hill to recreate a burial mound or dungeon entrance and I'm already looking forward in building such a cool scenery piece for my fantasy and historical scenery collection! The piece is also cast in the before mentionned Jesmonite material and comes with almost no visible airbubbles. Miniature shown in the picture below is a 28mm sized Games Workshop Lord of The Rings Morannon Orc.


Whether you're looking to recreate a derelict post apocalyptic hamlet, remote science fiction frontier post or a fantasy village. Fogou Models has scenery pieces that fit each of these tabletop settings with great ease. The overall quality of both the models and the actual casting is superb, while the number of buildings already available allows you to create entire villages without using the same buildings over and over again. So if you're looking for some nice scenery pieces for your tabletop miniature wargames, roleplaying adventures or figure dioramas make sure to check out Fogou Models here

Element Games: New Discounted Warhammer 40K Forgebane Boxed Set Pre-Order

Element Games launched the discounted pre-order for the brand new Games Workshop Warhammer 40K Forgebane boxed set which contains the mighty Adeptus Mechanicus and lethal Necrons.

Across the galaxy a fresh conflict is coming to a head between man and alien – or rather between factions that once laid claim to those terms, but have become entities far stranger and more deadly than beings of flesh and blood. Battle lines are being drawn on Amontep II, a planet rich in the mysterious substance that once held the tides of the warp at bay, and a hundred worlds besides. The Adeptus Mechanicus have become aware of a strange mineral bounty that lies within their domain, and are going to extreme lengths to secure it – but the Necrons who have long slumbered under Amontep II are rising. The stage is set for a war that could define the future of the Great Rift, and perhaps even the Imperium itself…

Forgebane is a great-value boxed set containing 2 armies split across the forces of the Adeptus Mechanicus – cybernetically augmented post-human soldiers of the Machine God – and the Necrons – an ancient, slumbering civilisation of soulless automata whose rousing is changing the face of the galaxy. You can use these miniatures to act out the scenarios described in the Forgebane book – 3 connected missions that recreate the desperate battle for Amontep II – and use them to expand your games of Warhammer 40,000. 

Grab your own discounted copy of the Warhammer 40k: Forgebane Boxed Set here at Element Games and make sure to use our exclusive Wargame News and Terrain TIM940 code at the checkout for double loyality points!
