CHICAGO, IL (September 30, 2014): Indie toy company Warpo is thrilled to share today a first-look at the forthcoming Legends of Cthulhu (LoC) retro action figure line. These images represent the four Legends of Cthulhu figures – Spawn of Cthulhu, The Deep One, The Professor, and The Cultist, as well as the Kickstarter Exclusives High Priest and Conjured Cthulhu – in their unpainted form from the factory. These images are early production sneak-peeks, and not the final product.

Legends of Cthulhu was funded via Kickstarter in June 2014, raising the initial funds in just three days. The retro action figures are currently available for pre-order through Diamond Comic Distributors at your local comic book store, as well as through Big Bad Toy Store, and will be available at retail January 2015.

Legends of Cthulhu is a retro-styled, 3.75” action figure line, the first based on the iconic characters of H.P. Lovecraft and created by sculptor Eddy Mosqueda (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Masters of the Universe), and artist Ken Kelly (Micronauts, Manglor Mountain, KISS’ Destroyer album cover), the pioneers of the look and feel of beloved action figures from the 1970s and 1980s, to bring Legends of Cthulhu to life.

abyss1Abyss

$59.99

 

Internal unrest brews among the court of the Abyss. The warlike Crabs bring chaos against the wise mages of the Jellyfish while the merchant Shellfish wage trade wars against the insidious Squid politicians. Can you recruit the allies you need to master the lords of the Abyss? Venture to Abyss, where players must battle monsters, recruit allies, and sway the great lords of the deep. The right hand of ally cards will let you control the lords who will help you seize the kingdoms of the Abyss. Be careful of your foes, though, because treachery abounds in the lands under the sea!

 

Abyss is a game of development, combination and collection in which players try to take control of strategic locations in an underwater city. To achieve this, players must develop on three levels: first by collecting allies, then using them to recruit Lords of the Abyss, who will then grant access to different parts of the city. Players acquire cards through a draft of sorts, and the Lords of the Abyss acquired on those cards grant special powers to the cardholder but once you use the cards to acquire a location, that power is shut off, so players need to time their land grabs well in order to put themselves in the best position for when the game ends.

shadowShadows of Brimstone: City of the Ancients

$99.95

Shadows of Brimstone: City of the Ancients is a fast-paced, fully cooperative, dungeon-crawl board game set in the Old West, with a heavy dose of unspeakable horror! Players create characters, taking on the role of a classic Western Hero Archetype, such as the Law Man, Gunslinger, or Saloon Girl. Forming an adventuring posse, the Heroes venture down into the dark mines, overrun with all manner of ancient demons and foul creatures from another world. With tactical gameplay, lots of dice, and a robust card-driven exploration system, no two games are ever the same as the heroes explore the mines finding new enemies to fight, new loot to collect, and new dangers to overcome. Players can even find portals to other worlds, stepping through to continue their adventures on the other side!

 

An exciting campaign system allows the players to visit local frontier towns between adventures, spending their hard-earned loot and building their characters from game to game! As players find fantastic gear and artifacts to equip their heroes, they also gain experience from their adventures. This experience is used to level up, guiding the hero’s path through an expansive, class-specific upgrade tree of new skills and abilities, allowing each player to develop their hero to fit their own play style.

 

In City of the Ancients, players will encounter portals to the otherworld on the Plains of Targa, finding an ancient frozen city whose living inhabitants are nowhere to be found. Instead, great mechanical keepers wander the city going about their duties – until interrupted by the arrival of the players’ characters!

 

So load up yer’ six shooter, throw on yer’ hat and poncho, and gather the posse as the darkness is coming, and all hell’s about to break loose…in the Shadows of Brimstone!

 

Can be used together with Shadows of Brimstone: Swamps of Death to raise the maximum players to 6.

mprphEclipse Phase: Morph Recognition Guide

$44.99

Eclipse Phase is the post-apocalyptic game of transhuman conspiracy and horror. Technology allows the re-shaping of bodies and minds, but also creates opportunities for oppression and puts the capability for mass destruction in the hands of everyone. Other threats lurk in the devastated habitats of the Fall, dangers both familiar and alien.

 

In this harsh setting, the players participate in a cross-faction conspiracy called Firewall that seeks to protect transhumanity from threats both internal and external. Along the way, they may find themselves hunting for prized technology in a gutted habitat falling from orbit, risking the hellish landscapes of a ruined Earth, or following the trail of a terrorist through militarized stations and isolationist habitats. Players may even find themselves stepping through a Pandora Gate, a wormhole to distant stars and the alien secrets beyond….

This rulebook book requires the Eclipse Phase core rulebook (PS+21000).

$39.95

To be granted command of a VT-49 Decimator is seen as a significant promotion for a middling officer of the Imperial Navy.

goldCalifornia Gold

$49.99

 

California Gold is an historic simulation of orange grove production in which you represent a co-op for helping orange ranchers receive support and the best prices for their crops.

 

Play hinges around collecting cards that represent orange ranches distinguished by city environs and grouped by counties. Buildings – such as packing houses and nurseries – create local support structures, while advertising and railroad contracts increase profits. The object of the game is to have the most ranches (cards) in your co-op by the end of the game. Players acquire cards through an action point allowance, which is limited by packing house distribution. Other buildings help with advertising, leverage, and expansion into other areas of control like Political Lobbying and Agricultural Amenities.

 

Made in China.
