Oakbound Games needs You!

We're almost there with getting Tripods! released, but now there's something fun adrift in all the administration...

We get to design our own meeples!


So come on guys, what does a VICTORIAN MEEPLE look like?

All the guidelines are on our website, pop on over to the Tripods link on the left to find them, but they're basically this.

You can have up to 10 different Meeple designs
Meeples must be able to stand up easily
Meeples must be no more than 15mm wide and 30mm high
Designs must read in silhouette, no stickers
Try to steer away from fine bits which might snap off
Email designs to, they'll be posted on the facebook page
You have until the 1st April

The winner will have the joy of seeing their design produced and sold with the Tripods! game, their name credited in the rulebook and a limited edition TRIPODS! T-SHIRT.

New website goes live!

The Propworkshop, my 'real work' enterprise, has got a new website to celebrate its relaunch. After several years of not taking on prop commissions I went freelance again in the autumn and wanted a revamp of the business.

Followers of this blog might be more interested in this section of the site:
Oakbound Games

And more specifically:
Oakbound Miniatures

which will be the host site for my range of old-school roleplaying minis. There's just the Myeri on there at the moment, but 6 (yes 6!) more ranges are due to be released by Kickstarter around easter so keep checking back. The paypal system has a couple of bugs, so if you decide to make some purchases please email me as well otherwise they might take your money and not let me know what you want! Hopefully these bugs will be eradicated very soon!

There's also a nice forum section for playtesting and developing games, but most excitingly it has a section for you to post photos of your lovely painted minis. Oakbound minis are designed to be versatile and customisable and we'd love to see what you do with yours! I'm hoping Mr Saturday, Lenihan and Chico will get us off to a flying start as I know they've already done stirling things with their marsh demons!
