Nope. It looks that way at first but click on anything in there and you'll see it's broken as hell. I tried it both here at home and during the day at work on my work machine.

Hmm, the shop should be working now. Well, onto the new release


Mini Gangs is the latest release from Ramshackle Games, and Im doing a Kickstarter project for it:

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/179741323/mini-gangs-skirmish-game

I have been mulling this game over for many years now. Its a game for people who want a simple system to play what they want. Its got three ways to play.

The first is called Gateway, and is for kids or beginners to model gaming.

The second, Casual, is for people who want to have a few quick games to pass an evening. Its a great club game, its multi player and each person only needs four figures to play. Its also simple so its easier to get other gamers playing! Gangs get randomly dealt cards which represent equipment, skills etc, which makes it fast to play with no paperwork.

The third is called Hardcore, and is a full points system for designing whatever force you want to use. Its still simple and straight forward, but open to do what you like with it.

The KS also has 3 gangs of figures to go with it. The figures are cast in high quality polyurethane resin, so a departure from the usual polyester resin I use. You can see this has let me be alot more dynamic with my poses and I think these are the best figures I have made so far.

Mini Gangs has three ways to play, Gateway, Casual and Hardcore. The first, Gateway, is just that, a way into our hobby. I originally designed it to play as a kids game, but have since found that it is a good way to introduce new players to model gaming. You only need four figures each, a tabletop, one dice, a ruler and some scenery.

I know alot of parents who game and want a way to get their kids to play. I myself have been playing this with my 6 year old. He loves it and endlessly hassles me to play, although Im finding it hard to get him to make or paint a gang (his little brother is the creative one).

So, if you fancy some easy gaming with your kids, or want to get your non-gaming significant other to play, then please give Mini Gangs a try out. Its free.

ITS FREE! I have put up a pdf on Scribd and SaberCat, plus both pages as .jpgs on Imigur(pdfs have text based type, the jpg flattens the text into pixels). The images are designed to be printed onto two sides of an A3 sheet. I will be getting these printed up as part of the Kicksaterter to, so come and back that if you want a hard copy .

I always offer miscasts on froums. THey are ideal for doing nurgle stuff with Rust and bubbles here we come! I have a big box of miscast Rhebok parts and I can throw in some guns and stuff.

I usually charge £7.50 per KG for miscasts. This covers the cost of the resin, packaging and my time to select and pack it. On top of this is postage, which is about £5 to £10 per kg depending on where you like.

Here is an image from the blog Crucium Giger. Its made from about 500g of miscasts. Having seen your post above Im pretty certain its a proxy!

Spoiler:


I'm drowning in miniatures (still have a couple dozen dwarf bikers to paint...), especially post-apoc minis but I liked Nuclear Renaissance alot (bought both printed rulebooks) so I'm in for the digital bundle. I'm sure it will be $8 well spent!
Best of luck with the rest of the kickstarter.

Also by popular demand I have added the Grenade Marker tokens to the project. Mini Gangs casual and Hardcore add grenades to the game. When a model throws a grenade, one of the grenade markers is placed. Each grenade type has a radius of effect, which is measured from the grenade in the middle of the token.



A set of 4 grenade tokens can be added to your chosen reward by increasing your pledge amount by £3.

I added a new gang to the Mini Gangs Kickstarter. They are called the Scarecrows and are made from the usual Ramshackle polyester resin. Please come and back the project!

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/179741323/mini-gangs-skirmish-game

This gang will be added free of charge to every pledge (except the digital reward).

I like them , very Orc meets Necron, falls in love but is rejected by the necron so he goes on a bender and starts a cult devoted to destroying the Necrons.

You know I totally forgot forums even existed for a while there! Then I saw an ad for Dakka Dakka on social media and thought it was time to come and update my thread. Well, what HAVE I been doing recently? Making more models! I recently started casting a new range in a new resin too, some sci-fi orks, so very Dakka! I did a bit of a write up on my web page if you fancy a read https://ramshacklegames.co.uk/2020/10/13/outrider-and-the-new-resin/. This is the latest model, the Outrider. Is a fun kit. I'm also giving away some spooky Halloween themed Ork heads for Orktober with every order.

Your figure sculpts are improving Curtis.

Have ordered from Ramshackle twice now. Both times Curtis was fantastic, pieces were awesome and the whole experience was great. Highly recommend trying them out for yourself.
Timing for your Grots is spot on, just started another Grot based army. Will be sending over an order for all the new goblins later this month.

Curtis,
I've been away from post apoc gaming for a while, but its good to see what you've been up to. Those green casts look great.

We had fun with NucRen some years ago.
