GLOOMSPITE GITZ is here to invade!

GLOOMSPITE GITZ is set to drop this weekend and it’s about to bring a new war to your miniature doorstep.

The Bad Moon rises over the Mortal Realms, heralding the first wave of the Gloomspite Gitz – a new army that combines the Moonclan Grots, Spiderfang Grots, troggoths and even some gargants into a single madcap faction.

The Battletome is absolutely packed with sinister (and sometimes hilarious) new lore, stunning art, and a new set of rules to make this new army cohesive and powerful.

Don’t worry! We’ll have all the miniatures and other goodness that you’ll want to get your hands on for this new adventure!


KILLER BUNNIES keeps on multiplying with the QUEST BUNDLE!

Killer Bunnies and the Quest for the Magic Carrot is probably one of the most hilarious games that we’ve ever played! It’s all about keeping your bunnies alive, taking your opponent’s bunnies down, and collecting carrots until you find that one magical carrot! Stop at nothing to protect your bunnies while sabotaging your friends in this hilariously vengeful game.

The bundle comes absolutely stuffed with all of the expansions to make your game even crazier. They include:

Red Booster Deck (the original!)
Violet Booster Deck
Orange Booster Deck
Green Booster Deck
Twilight White Booster Deck
Stainless Steel Booster Deck
Perfectly Pink Booster Deck
Wacky Khaki Booster Deck
Ominous Onyx Double Booster Deck.
