A preview of the cover:
2nd April: Tombstone Kickstarter preview 7 of 7: Females.
Our final miniatures update, (book updates coming tomorrow!) The females don't have their own 'faction' in the book, they can be added as and where you please. Of course you can form an all female posse if you like, just use another faction type (such as outlaws) as the roster.
30th March: Tombstone Kickstarter preview 6 of 7: Undead.
The Undead faction have been added! The undead/zombie fantasy side is an option in Tombstone, for those who want to play traditional games this is not a problem. The Undead leader may at some point get his own 'undead horse', for now he rides one of the generic ones. The Terrors pack has been previously released, it was an early test pack to see of there was interest in Undead cowboys, there was and they now form part of the faction.
28th March: Tombstone Kickstarter preview 5 of 7: Lawmen.
27th March: Tombstone Kicklstarter preview 4 of 7: 7th Cavalry.
The 7th Cavalry in Tombstone don't form a strict army unit, but rather a bunch of skirmish troopers that have formed togther to help a cause, on a unique mission or perhaps a crew of deserters out for their own gains. The leader can be used as a generic Captain or Custer himself who is a special character in the book.
Bonus preview: Extras and add ons:
We've added some images of a few of the add ons that will be availabke on the forthcoming kickstarter. Humphrey the dog, Incident on grand st and the vulture.
24th March- Tombstone Kickstarter preview 3 of 7: Mexicans.
We've now added previews of the Mexicans! They follow the same format as the other factions. Pablo the donkey is a special character and will be an add on during the campaign.
Pablo the donkey beklow is a special charcater add on and not part of the standrad Mexican faction.
22nd March- Tombstone Kickstarter preview 2 of 7: Natives.
We're pleased to preview the Natives faction for Tombstone, more coming soon.
20th March- Tombstone Kickstarter preview 1 of 7: Outlaws.
The first previews of our seven factions are the Outlaws. Each gang type consists of one leader, mounted and unmounted, a deputy, a 3x four figure packs (15 models total). There are four different horse types which will also be available separately.
17/March 2017: Tombstone Kickstarter previews.
Over the next couple of weeks we're going to start showing the previews for the Tombstone kickstarter. We expect to launch on April 5th, over the next couple of weeks I'll be previewing the new miniatures.. all 110 of them over 7 factions! Probably a faction every few days. Also previews from the book, details about the game and kickstarter etc.. Tombstone is an old west skirmish game, rulebook (available in English, Spanish, German and French) and miniatures launched via Kickstarter. For now I've added some photos of the scenery we used for scenic shots for the book and some play testing. :) I'm extremely proud of the work that has gone into this project and book and can't wait to share it with you.
One of the best places to keep track of the progress is our facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/Black-Scorpion-miniatures-43404548975/
We'll also post updates here. The Tombstone page down the left hand column will have updates.
