Paint Pass Improvements!!!

We’re giving our Paint Pass system a boost, with a wider variety of paints and a whole new line of weathering effects now available for use. Add a new layer of wear and tear to your minis, with paints specially formulated to create the effects and impression of rust, mud, and soot. All included with the standard paint pass!

With Vallejo weathering effects, you can create the impression of gritty realism on your minis, making them look like they have trekked through the environs. Use the environment paints to create textured bases for your minis, with snow and various types of mud available in addition to the sandy and arid options already present in the Citadel lines.

Pandemic: Rapid Response. Fast Frantic Fun

For most board games, the play-time on the box is a suggestion that is often exceeded. Pandemic: Rapid Response bucks this trend, delivering a consistent 20 minutes of frantic fun.

Part of the Pandemic series of games, Rapid Response sees up to four players playing a group of elite scientist and technicians, tasked with delivering supplies to nations across the world.

The game sets itself apart from others in the cooperative genre by focusing heavily on real-time decision making. The game utilises a two-minute hourglass, with players trying to achieve as much as possible across their turns before the timer runs out.

Crazy Tower: How does it stack up?

A rickety spire of colourful blocks stands dangerously high in the middle of the table, the centrepiece of a game that seamlessly blends elements of Jenga and Uno with a unique twist.

At its core, Crazy Tower involves players building up a tower of wooden blocks, taking turns to place blocks on a floor card. Players can also create a new level by balancing a floor card on the existing set of blocks.
