A Gloranthan fly in the HeroQuest ointment for its 25th edition

Well, we were all up for reliving our childhood with the hope of obtaining the 25th Anniversary edition of HeroQuest. The updated version was on Kickstarter and though many of us asked the question "Are there not copyright thingys to sort out?" there had been assurances that they were.  Now it seems there is a Gloranthan sized glitch involving a Cease and Desist from Moon Design Publishing.

Battle Systems gives Wee Gamers the background scenery

There is a nice wee kickstarter up at the minute from Battle Systems.  Battle Systems is a sci-fi and fantasy system designed to create detailed interiors that can be used with a wide variety of role-playing tabletop game systems.  These designs are downloadable which you construct yourself.

The guys behind Battle Systems have found their line is popular with hobbyists but they decided to make something easier for gamers who don't have time to build their sets from scratch.  So they designed a line of terrain which is easy to assemble with no painting, gluing or cutting required and is ideal for many game systems including Warhammer 40K, Infinity, Mercs, Zone Mortalis, War Path, Star Wars Minis, Deadzone and Pandora. It's also ideal for non-sci-fi systems such as Achtung! Cthulhu :)

Wee Gamers caught up with Wayne and Colin from Battle Systems and tied them to one of their own control panels and tickled them until they spilled the beans.

We all love terrain.  Its the 3D map we always want to have to wow our friends and move our little toy soldiers over.  And of course many companies have done their best to facilitate our fascination for terrain.  Its is the mainstay of wargaming.  They have even let us play inside by giving us hallways, rooms and doors.  And in this regard Infinite Crypt are no different but different at the same time.

We tracked through the secret columned passageways of the Infinte Crypt to find James Wallbank, the man behind this terrain and its Kickstarter
