GenCon 2013 is Coming!

We'll be at GenCon this August! Check out our full GenCon event page with information on the events we'll be running and more as this huge convention draws near.

Maps are Back!

They're still being tested a bit, but maps shoudl be back on various pages, mainly those for the Retailer List and Events. If I missed any let me know!

 

The new maps are prettier, the code required is a lot less than for the old maps (so better for mobile users) and I think the new map style is a bit nicer looking and functional, with some useful markings for subway stations and such, at least in areas. We can also do some fun special looks if it's useful.

May 10th Single Packs and Weekly Featured Product

This week we have three new single pack releases. NuCoal's Chasseur Paratrooper and Jerboa Paratrooper provide some airdroppable firepower to NuCoal forces. The South's Fer de Lance is one of the most advanced, and elite, Gears in the Southern armory, and has been issued to Southern Republic Honor Guard Cadres as a hard-hitting symbol of the skill and technical prowess of the Republic.
