About Warzone Resurrection

mutantchronicleswarzoneresurrectionlogo

Warzone Resurrection is a 32mm scale tabletop skirmish wargame for two or more players, each fielding units of warriors drawn from one of the mighty MegaCorporations of Mankind, the Brotherhood or its vile enemy, the Dark Legion. Warzone Resurrection is a fast paced, exciting and tactical miniature game created by Prodos Games Ltd. and Paraodox Entertainment.

The Warzone Resurrection project brings the tabletop game well and truly into the 21st century. Lovingly, we have taken essence and best bits from the game, art and prose of previous editions to produce all new miniatures, a background re-imagining (by Warzone mega-fan and writing genius, Andy Hoare) and an exciting innovative gaming system.

The gaming system involves both miniatures and cards. The minis are your skirmish force and the cards represent game resources, additional wargear, global and local effects on the battlefield etc.. In a real battle it is likely that a soldier wouldn’t know his opponents wargear, whether they have grenades or a laser-sight for example. Both sides might be surprised by a Martian earthquake or Mercurian solar flare. The Venusian jungle cover you are in might be better (or worse) than you thought! War is rarely predictable, especially when it takes place on the planets, planetoids and asteroids of the solar system! All these and many more variables are represented by the cards you and your opponent play. Making Warzone Resurrection a truly novel, realistic and exciting tabletop miniature skirmish game!

The game brings 7 factions among the Bauhaus, Capital, Cybertronic, Mishima, Imperial, The Brotherhood and the Dark Legion

About Alien vs Predator: The Hunt Begins 2nd Edition

Alien vs Predator: The Hunt Begins is a dynamic, tactical board game for one or more players that allows you to take control of one of three Forces: Alien Xenomorphs, Predator or Human Colonial Marines and face off against each other on a derelict spacecraft called the USCSS Theseus.

From Alien Xenomorphs skulking in the shadows, waiting for the moment of weakness to pounce on and capture new hosts for the brood, to the well-trained Colonial Marines who are geared up with state-of-the-art equipment and finally to a mysterious race of brutal extra-terrestrial Hunters that the humans call Predators, each Force offers a unique set of skills to provide their own diversity to the gameplay. There’s no shortage of terror and excitement in Alien vs Predator!

Alien vs Predator offers many challenging game types, which can be played by one or more players and a main campaign consisting of 10 Missions joined together into a narrative story depicting dramatic events taking place on board the USCSS Theseus, this game provides hours of suspense and action! Alien vs Predator can also offer two sets of rules (Basic and Advanced) which offer beginners a chance to jump into the action easily but allows for depth and growth for experienced gamers alike!
The game is a “sandbox” game so fully moddable.and with future addons will open the game world up even further !

Each 32mm miniature is masterfully crafted and is part of an expanding range of miniatures to collect for your games of Alien vs Predator! Miniatures are supplied unpainted and assembly may be required.

ConCarolinas is a Client Convention of JustUs Productions.  They have hired JustUs to run their tabletop gaming track.  Anything other questions should be directed to the Convention Committee of ConCarolinas.  See their website for more information.


ConCarolinas 2016 Survey Results

We appreciate those that participated in our first client survey on Facebook.  We plan to take these results and use them to help us improve things for future endeavors.  But I wanted to give you my perspective on what it all means.  This is primarily my perspective with 15+ years of experience, organizing gaming for 3 to 4 cons a year.  This year, we were involved in five events including our own. I have a lot fun doing them, whether they are as successful as MACE or not.  Gaming is our passion.  Giving more and more people an opportunity to game in different venues is something we love to do.  But we want to make it easy for people to decide to attend these venues.

For those that are not on Facebook, these are the survey and results as of the typing of this article:

CONCAROLINAS 2016 POLL

Not only does JustUs Productions organize the great MACE events that you all love and enjoy, but we also organize gaming for a few local sci-fi cons. ConCarolinas and ConGregate are the two we currently work with.

For ConCarolinas 2016 (June 03-05, 2016). we would like to know, if you did not attend, what was the primary reason that kept you from coming?

The Results as of right now are…

Bad timing/Had other commitments for that weekend (but would otherwise have attended) 35
 Not a con I would normally attend/No interest 12
 Not my kind of gaming or not enough gaming was on the schedule  6
 Con fee too expensive  4
 Other, please explain in comments  4
 Too close to another con I attend (ie Origins, etc)  3
 Too far away  1
Hotel too Expensive  1

For a little background, ConCarolinas is a little more than just another client event that JustUs Productions decided to take on.  Jeff and I were personally involved in the formation and evolution of that convention in its early years.  Myself, I was heavily involved in the fandom side for a long time (2002 to 2012), holding positions of Con Chair and Vice Chair for several years.  I was also over gaming and at our peak, we had about 400 gamers regularly.  That all changed in 2012 when I left and CC went with someone else for their gaming.  It wasn’t until 2016 that we returned under a new agreement and found we had a lot of work to do to get CC Gaming back to what it was.  As for the survey, it is part of that effort to return ConCarolinas gaming to what it was.

In the end, more than half said poor timing, which tells us a lot.  For one, it means that some potentially will be able to attend if things line up better.  One of the worst things a con can do is change dates, especially after 15+ years in existence, so it is unlikely that CC will change its dates.  However, maybe those of you that answered “bad timing” will be able to attend in the future.

Those of you that answered “Not a con I would normally attend” or “No interest,” there is some in that group that may have a misperception of what ConCarolinas gaming was before we left in 2012.  During that time, it really was a small version of MACE, with a wide variety of gaming.  I realize that many of you would not normally attend a “sci-fi con’ or don’t feel like you fit in a “sci-fi crowd,” but at one time, ConCarolinas was more than that.  And it is something we would like to return to.  Now that I won’t have anything to do with the fandom side of the con, I hope we can get there.  Don’t get me wrong, though.  If you don’t like sci-fi events, than I don’t want to pressure you to attend in any way.  The point of this is clear up some misconceptions of what ConCarolinas was and what we want to return to.

Those of you that responded “Not my kind of gaming or not enough gaming was on the schedule,”  We can only assure you that we work hard every year to bring the most gaming of the best variety we possibly can to every event, but we can only give you what the community provides.  We rely 100% on the community to provide the GMs.  Encourage the GMs in your area of influence to look into our events and maybe run something.  For those events of ours that you do attend, you should by now know what we can provide given the right people and resources.  2016 was a building year for ConCarolinas gaming and if we return, it will only get better.

Anyone that answered having financials concerns, we understand and will be sure that the convention committee gets the same data.  They can only change that.  We can’t make promises for them.  All we can do is give them the data. Those of you that attend Origins, we can only hope that they change around their dates.  If they don’t, there isn’t much either con can do.

Again, we thank you for participating in the pole.  It was very helpful.

Hull Breach at ConGregate 2016

ConGregate Gaming will once again host a full weekend of Hull Breach card game in 2016.  Please join Todd and Lynn in the gaming rooms for 1 to 2 hour long demos of this unique and exciting card game.


About Hull Breach

Hull Breach is a sci-fi cards-and-dice game featuring epic space combat between ships, firefights between Marine boarding parties, and plenty of clever tactics and galaxy-shaking events. You command of a space station belonging to one of our several in-game factions and fight it out with one or more other Commanders to achieve galactic domination! The object of the game is to protect your Station – your home in space – from other Commanders while trying to capture or destroy theirs.  Be warned – they’re trying to do the same thing to you. It’s a tough galaxy and at the end of the day only one Commander gets to remain standing.

Best of all, while we encourage customization and deck-building, this isn’t one of those “collectible”  card games that will have you tearing through randomized foil packs of cards to find the ones you want. Hull Breach plays right out of the box and you’ll know where you can find every card in the game without having to drop a ton of space-cash on boosters or turn to the secondary market to field a competitive deck.

About Infinity

Infinity is a tabletop wargame in which sci-fi themed miniatures are used to simulate futuristic skirmishes.

Infinity recreates Direct Action operations, high-stakes missions in the battlefront or behind enemy lines, where victory or death are a trigger pull away. Players command a small group of elite soldiers, chosen for their adequacy to the mission parameters at hand. Each battle calls for a different composition, and building an effective team from hand-picked members of different regiments is key to a successful operation.

Infinity is a groundbreaking, dynamic system that allows you to make meaningful, fun choices throughout the entire game sequence, and gives you the tools to implement any number of strategies with realism and flexibility.

Each miniature represents a soldier, a robot or a creature of some kind, capable of independent movement and action. As a game element, miniatures include the circular base they are affixed to. Miniatures have different in-game point Costs depending on their combat prowess, their armament and their gear.

Infinity miniatures have a scale in millimeters. The standard scale, 28 mm, represents the height of an average man. All other miniatures are scaled up or down around that average figure.
