The Bestiary of Equestria, available now!

"Inside this tome you will find my gathered notes on the creatures of Equestria, their strenghts and weaknesses, what makes them tick, and how to find them."

A brand new core book for Tails of Equestria is now available!

Along with Earth Ponies, Pegasi, and Unicorns from the core rulebook, that's three times the amount of character options for your games!
    These pages are full of info on familiar creatures from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, and even original creatures from Tails of Equestria, such as the arcane 'Bookwyrm' above. They are all detailed with relevant traits, talents, quirks, and special abilities, for maximum ease of reference during sessions!
    As well as being great reference material, try flicking through The Bestiary of Equestria when planning your own adventures. The detailed information is sure to give you the inspiration you need to make your stories as epic as they can be.

    Check out the brand new rules for playing a Griffon character! Powerful talons and wings make them formidable foes, and even fiercer friends.

    Wyrd Games - Monday Preview

    This weeks Monday preview from Wyrd Games is from their Through the Breach RPG

    Boy oh boy is today a good Monday!  We are looking at some awesome new art from the upcoming Through the Breach book, Above the Law!  Check out some sweet new art and a little background below!
    The Commander is one of the new Pursuits (i.e., classes) available in Above the Law. Commanders march into battle alongside subordinate troops, which they can attract to their service at the start of every session. This ensures that a Commander has a steady supply of expendable soldiers to do her bidding. As a Commander advances further into the Pursuit, she gains the ability to enhance the effectiveness of her soldiers and even call upon hidden snipers that she moved into position before the battle even started.

    While most Commanders work for the Guild (they're found in the Guild expansion book, after all!), the Pursuit and the soldiers are generic enough to meet the needs of any character, no matter the faction with which she works. In the end, it's about sending good men and women to their deaths for the Commander's own benefit, and that's a cake that anyone can serve.

    Thoughts and comments are (as usual) most welcome.

    Hasslefree Miniatures - Newsletter

    A Halloween offer from Hasslefree Miniatures...

    No Mail until November!
    Right, listen up guys and gals!

    We're closing for mail for the rest of the month. 'No' orders willl go out until we're back to work in November*

    As always when we close for any reason and you lot have to wait for your orders there is a bonus!

    May I present, the bonus....

    * (unless you email us because of an emergency/bday/whatever and then we'll see what we can do).
    The Big 2017 Halloween Sale!
    Our biggest sale of the year!

    Use the code 'HALLOWEEN2017' to get a whopping 20% discount of most things* and a discount of everything else.

    Input the code on the final 'confirmation' page, at the top. If you hit the payment page you went too far.

    (Stop writing it in the comments box! Anyone who writes it in the comments box is getting the worst flavour sweets!).

    We've also updated our system so the code can now be used multiple times by the same customer, meant to do that for a 'long' time! :)

    *The below new releases, red box, some other stuff, are all just reduced rather than the full 20% off, you'll see :))

    The sale runs until November.

    Please remember, no mail will be posted until the sale is over, the discount is in return for the wait :)

    Oh, and for the big spenders, as always during promotions we have...
    Halloween Goody Bags
    Anyone spending £70 or more* will qualify for a Halloween Goody Bag. Goody bag will contain a variety of 'things', a free mini or 2 (themed appropriately), some 'bitz' such as sand or cogs and, of course, extra Halloween candy (i.e. it's sour!).
    *Actual total paid, including discount, postage, VAT etc.

    Larger spends qualify for larger goody bags, no limit on goody bag size :D We will also theme the goody bag to the order, so if you ordered Fantasy the free mini/s wil be fantasy and so on. 

    Right, yet another Brexit intermission coming up...
    Unsurprisingly, Brexit Still Sucks!
    After a couple of attempts to rally the Pound kind of given up for a bit and is content to just continue to suck for the moment.

    Just as an example to our American friends, our current standard single metal pricepoint with the sale discount is less than $4.50! 

    For the Mainland Euros out there, our standard pricepoint, with the sale is also less than 4.50 Euro!

    For the Aussies less than $6 and for the Japanese, less than 500 yen! Madness!
    Our airmail stickers are at the ready! :D

    Right, , and you thought this was all just sale talk? Hell no, this is the 2017 'Spectacular! ...
    New Releases! Resin and Metal!
    Yup, thanks to my surgeries (see waaaaay down below) we haven't released anything new in a bit. Now we don't normally release things during a sale but I've fiddled with the system a bit to combine the two. So now you can get your New Releases in the same order as your much reduced regular minis!

    And for the first time in a while, we have an actual Halloween themed release! We shall be making an effort to do more themed minis throughout the next year, keep an eye on our FB page for threads about the possibilities :)

If he ever comes back to the Sol system. There are those who say he probably doesn't even realise he's still enlisted never mind his own rank.

    Armed here with a variant of the SHARD rifle and a customised handheld chainsaw.

    My Health & Surgeries
    I want to assure those of you who have emailed or PM'd etc that I'm ok, I'm not dying or anything :) I'm just randomly in a lot of pain or high *grin*

    I have had 8 surgeries since last November when this kicked in and I have another on the 18th, so in a few days, but most of them would be considered dental surgery if I was someone else. Due to some complications I have to have them all under sedation anaesthetic and so it complicates matters.

    I do appreciate the well wishes, some of you guys even sent me gifts and get well cards etc. and I do thank you :) I will live, there's very little permanent damage to either me or the business ;)

    I'll be fine, the biggest issues it has caused are a lack of certain updates, a short period of turbulence in the unit and a huge delay to the Kickstarter Pledge Manager as those are the things that could not just be shifted to someone else for help.

    Talking of the Kickstarter ...
    Kickstarter News
    Ok, the Pledge Manager is done. At last!

    This week the 'smoke test' will happen which is a small percenatge of backers getting access to the pledge manager for a test run. We don't choose that percentage, the pledge manager company does so don't ask to sneak onto it :)

    For those of you who missed the Kickstarter you 'will' be able to late pledge during this, and it'll run all the way through November too. I'll explain that further in next week's newsletter.

    For those of you who already backed, if you want to take advanteg of the sale, just write 'KICKSTARTER' in the comments box and we'll keep the order aside to ship together with your pledge and it will save you postage. (I'll also come talk to you over on the KS itself).

    If you're confused at all, wait for the next newsletter :)
    ... And Finally
    Wow, quite the period these last few months. Who would have thought a broken face could cause so much annoyance. Touch wod this weeks op is teh last one and we're not just back to normal but hitting theground running. Others have been working behind the scenes while I've been in and out of surgeries so there is a bunch of stuff planned and waiting for me :)

    If something has gone wrong during this time for you, the update is HERE.

    And yes, when I putout the reminder newsletter the images will be updated with the multi angle ormetal etc, whatever's missing now will be fixed during the week around my surgery :)

    Star Trek Discovery is terrible, The Orville however is like well done fan fiction of the Next Generation, with a few lame dick jokes, so watch that instead (Unless you like hatewatching stuff then watch STD)
    'til next time,
