Assassins Ball at PAX East 2013 KS


Recommended Posts

A friend of mine started a Kickstarter to get a game together for PAX East this year. He's been running this type of thing at PAX East and Prime for the last several years, but this year he's trying to get it a bit more professionally done.


So here's the deal, if you're planning on being at PAX East, a kit costs $5 and has everything you need to play! The premise is that each person is part of a faction and you're job is the assassinate the person who has the matching faction badge you've been given. Once you've done so, you get their target as your own and you move through the targets until all the other assassins are dead. Points are awarded to a leaderboard.


Overall, it's just going to be a fun convention game that I've played a few times and enjoyed! The more who play, the better.


Also, he'll be adding a limited reward level so people can pay a fairly small pledge (Something like $25-35) to get a custom painted miniature of the faction of your choice (painted by yours truly, my first commissions!). If you're into Infinity models, the 2 he's picked out for the Robot Ninjas faction are Infinity. The rest he'll be ordering from Reaper (as per my recommendation :lol:)




It's kind of a dinky little thing, but I wanted to support a friend, so if you're attending, think about playing ::D:

Well, his project funded! He's upwards of $600 now, and he's added premium kits ($7) that come with an extra life in the game. The painted miniature levels have been added at $50 that includes 1 premium kit and 1 custom painted miniature from the faction of your choice.


Factions include Kingsport Raiders (artifact hunting pirates/cthulhu worshippers), Robot Ninjas, Varsity Dead (your standard high school zombie survivors), Cowboy 'Verse, and Sparkly Ponies (otherwise known as the hAy Team, escaped prisoners who didn't commit the crime they were locked up for, today they survive as bronies of fortune :lol:)


He's also added a $250 level that includes 5 premium kits, and a custom illustration of yourself as one of the factions in the game done by Micah Kaneshiro which will be included in all published works involving the game as a permanent part of the game world.

      This is the 22nd project my wife and I have worked side by side together on. Posted tbis on Facebook but first time adding our project to the forums. I hope you like our Interpretation of the KS  Mammoth not sure if the is a SKU for it. C&C more than welcome. Felt with it being a mammoth a more wintery theme should be more in keeping. Enjoy. Stay safe in these troubled times.

      I know there are a few folks that do Bolt Action and similar 28mm wargaming (@buglips), so I thought I'd bounce this out there.
      Railroads are an important means to transport troops, equipment, ammunition and all other kinds of supply to the front. Especially in a country as vast as the Soviet Union with it's endless steppes, only few reliable roads and no major rivers running in the direction of the German advance during Operation Barbarossa in World War II. 
      With this set of detailed buildings and rolling stock in 1/56 scale for 28mm figures you get the opportunity to recreate the crucial fighting around the Soviet railroad system.
      The kits focus on the major pieces of rolling stock available to the Soviet defenders: box cars, gondola cars and flat cars. And the mighty ALCo RSD-1 Diesel Engine which was made available under the US Lend-Lease Act.
      Also included is a typical rural train station with optional additional platforms for all who want to depict a Soviet - or captured German - supply depot, where heavy equipment like tanks and guns are being unloaded.
      And for all of you looking for an armored train - don't worry! We have you covered.
        Talking about railroad tracks:
      We did not see the need to reinvent the wheel, so all kits are designed to be used with
      4Ground Railroad Tracks (available as add-ons to the Kickstarter) or O Gauge Model Railroad Tracks The kits include optional parts enabling you to choose your favorite system while assembling. Going this route has allowed us to concentrate on designing and producing the rolling stock only, which has the advantage of an earlier fulfillment date for the Kickstarter.
      All models are highly detailed on the outside and inside. The interiors are easily accessible, as roofs are removable. In addition, all doors are moveable, which means you can open or close them during gameplay.

      A Viking Girl sculpted by Bobby Jackson. She was a lot of fun to paint since she had a lot of canvas for freehand work. She is also my first serious effort at NMM, so that's a well I plan to return to.
      I came to paint her when I asked my friends which model needed to get some love next. I presented a wizard, a ranger, and an armored lady fighter. One chimes in that she'd like to see the fighter (she being a practitioner of HEMA). Her boyfriend mentions something about boob armor. I said, no, she's got pretty normal armor. You want to see something egregious? THIS is egregious. My HEMA friend immediately says, "I'd like to change my vote." So here we are.
      Here's the WIP thread for her. Here's my next piece.

      This has sod all to do with miniatures, but I would be surprised if there were not people who might want one of these pins, for literally any reason at all.
      I'll let the campaign speak for itself, as I usually do; it is pins. There are, as the title implies, representations for most of the common faiths, in a literal rainbow of ... well, Pride rainbows.

      "You take your game seriously. Now it's time for a serious screen.
      In October of 2018, Dog Might released the first fully sculpted GM Screen, the Valhalla Screen. Since then, we have released over 30 more designs, including officially licensed screens for: Pathfinder, Call of Cthulhu, and Vampire: The Masquerade. We have also designed screens for you favorite shows, such as Relics and Rarities and the Critical Role stream of Undeadwood. Over the last year and a half, our Valhalla Screens have proven to be our most sought after product. "
      ... Would it surprise anybody here to know I want one? 
      If I can't have one, at least I can spread the word. ;p
