Doctor Who: Time of the Daleks from Gale Force 9!

December 14, 2016

Gale Force 9 is giving us a first look at their upcoming Doctor Who board game, Time of the Daleks!

“All of time and space; everywhere and anywhere; every star that ever was. Where do you want to start?”

In Doctor Who: Time of the Daleks, players take on the role of the Doctor, travelling throughout time and space, finding new companions and having adventures to repair the web of time. Players do this by overcoming challenges. The Doctor can overcome most challenges he encounters, but he always needs his Companions to help give him an edge. Players must cooperate to stop the Daleks, while trying to get their TARDIS to Gallifrey first, to prevent Davros from invading the Matrix in the first place.

The Web of Time is used to monitor progress in the game, as the Doctors and Dalek progress towards Gallifrey. If the Daleks get to Gallifrey first, the Doctors Lose the game, If a Doctor gets there first, the Doctors win the game.

Two new Collectors Edition D&D sets released by GF9

April 30th, 2015

Gale Force 9 expands their Collector’s Edition line of Dungeons & Dragons miniatures with two new kits available to pre-order from their webshop, Gar Shatterkeel & Priest (71041) and Water Myrmidon (71042)

Gar Shatterkeel & Priest (71041)
Dour and morose, Gar Shatterkeel is the water prophet of Elemental Evil, and the leader of the Crushing Wave cult. He is embittered by a life of suffering at the hands of others—pirates killed his family when he was young, he was forced into servitude aboard a merchant ship, and then another band of pirates left him to die on the open sea, where he lost his arm to a shark. Gar has come to hate all humankind, and sees the elemental power of water as the only thing of value in his life.

Contains 2 unpainted, unassembled resin figures.
Sculpted by Georgio Bassani

And
Water Myrmidon (71042)

Elemental myrmidons are elementals conjured and bound by magic into ritually created suits of plate armour. In this form, they possess no recollection of their former existence as free elementals. They exist only to follow the commands of their creators.

Contains 9 resin parts.
Sculpted by Charles Woods.

Gale Force 9 release 2 new Air themed sets for D&D Miniatures

April 1st, 2015

Gale Force 9 has two new air-themed sets (seems appropriate) that they have released as part of their collector series of D&D miniatures.  These are both limited edition sets, so if you want yours, you’d better get in on it.

Aerisi Kalinoth & Air Priest (71043)

Aerisi Kalinoth is the air prophet of the Elder Elemental Eye and leader of the Cult of the Howling Hatred. Tall and slender, with dark hair and (illusory) dark-feathered wings that gently fan the air, Aerisi Kalinoth speaks to her people in a whisper that belies her violent temper—a temper that reveals itself whenever she is denied.

Air Myrmidon (71044)

Elemental myrmidons are elementals conjured and bound by magic into ritually created suits of plate armor. In this form, they possess no recollection of their former existence as free elementals. They exist only to follow the commands of their creators.
