War Gods of Olympus to Debut at GENCON 2003!
I don't have much on this yet but it is being rumored that Crocodile Games' long awaited War Gods of Olympus is to debut at GENCON 2003! .

As a result I thought I would reprint the initial press release by Crocodile Games announcing this game for release in December 2002!

* * * * * * *
"War Gods of Olympus"

Crocodile Games is pleased to announce "War Gods of Olympus", the second installment in the "War Gods" series of miniature games, due for release in December, 2002.

"War Gods of Olympus" is based on the rich mythology of ancient Greece. The game will detail the war between the Demigods and the Titans, and the men and monsters that swear allegiance to them. Olympus is being designed by the creative team of Chris FitzPatrick & J. Allen Thomas. Once again, the pages of the book will be illuminated by the amazing artwork of Des Hanley & Paul Jeacock. And as always, the game will feature more stunning miniatures by the Crocodile Games sculpting team, including Todd Harris, Ben Siens, and Fitz -- of course!

War Gods of Olympus will be the second in a series of 5 games, each based on separate mythologies, but compatible on the table-top. Each game uses the Crocodile Games' innovative Command Counter System, but with new armies, spells, powers, and possibilities! Thus, players will be able to play all of the forces of the Antediluvian Age in battle... a Harbinger of Anubis against a Demigod of Ares, and so on!

The games will be released in the following order:

War Gods of Olympus -- December, 2002
War Gods of Valhalla -- 2003
War Gods of Atlantis -- 2004
War Gods of Hyperborea -- 2005

D&D Pre-Painted Game to Replace Chainmail!
I ran this story before when I was editing the Wargames Weekly miniature page. But for those of you who haven't heard. WotC is planning to release a new D&D game to replace Chainmail with pre-painted, randomly packaged miniatures like those featured in Mage Knight. There is a good preview page of these at Fantization. Check It Out Here!

Pinnacle Looking for Authors!
Pinnacle Entertainment, the makers of Savage World are looking for would be authors for their upcoming 'Savage Tales' compilation of rules and adventures. The official news release follows:

..............................
Announcing: Savage Tales!

Dozens of you have been asking how you can make and sell your own Savage Worlds adventures and settings. The bad news--we have NO intention of doing an Open Gaming License.

The good news--we've finalized the details of our own Savage Tales, a book that will come out three times a year featuring articles, settings, and adventures by established authors AND guys and gals just like you. This isn't "fan" work. If your work is accepted, you'll be contracted and treated just like any one of our regular freelancers. The work will be edited by a professional, you'll do rewrites as required, and when all is said and done, you'll be paid and published as a professional author! Those concepts that would make great stand-alones might even get their own book depending on the schedule and our needs at the time.

Pinnacle Entertainment Group

They are also looking for contributors to their official Savage Worlds Magazine, "Games Unplugged"! Check out the Pinnacle Site for more info!

I've created a new links section for gallery pages. Hopefully these will be a good source of inspiration for those looking for painting schemes or color combinations for various miniatures! If you know of any good galleries feel free to drop me a line.

News and Rumors!
It's been a slow week as far as new releases and actual miniature products. I try not to duplicate what is already out there so if you haven't done so be sure to check out The Miniatures Page for some of the new stuff they are featuring.



Instead of copying what you can find elsewhere I've decided to devote this space to News and Rumors in the industry!
* Rumors persist that The Foundry may be closing by the end of this year. This is a "new" old rumor but always taken seriously when it is resurrected.

* This isn't really news or a rumor but I am starting to wonder what is taking so long with the Heroclix Indy range. This range was announced over a year ago and I still haven't seen one promo picture or figure on this range. For those who don't know this was supposed to be a Heroclix set of heroes from Independant comics like "Image". I was especially interested in potential "Spawn" figures.

* This has been posted previously on this page but is worth repeating that Games Workshop apparently intends to stop allowing its products to be sold "online". The target date for this I keep hearing is July 15th or so! Order up!

* I keep hearing rumors that Em-4 has the rights to Nick Lund's old Fantasy Warriors miniature range. I can't find anything official on this and definitely haven't seen any actual miniatures. For those who have never seen this range I recommend you check out the gallery at the "old" Nemo Miniatures website. There are a lot of good pictures of the dwarves and barbarians in their catalog there.

* Talisman is back out. This is also not a rumor but apparently it will only be available from Games Workshop and for a U.S. price of $75.00!! Ever heard of ebay?!
