Blood & Plunder – New Deal Arriving Soon!

April 7, 2020 News from the Dark Horse

Blood & Plunder by Firelock Games

We just wanted to take a moment to let everyone know that Dark Horse Hobbies has recently secured a direct purchasing arrangement with Firelock Games so that we can get back on-board with their Blood & Plunder Pirate Skirmish game, as well as other products produced by Firelock Games moving forward. It has been our experience that working directly with the manufacturers saves us all a lot of headache as we no longer rely on third-hand information about availability nor are we forced to wait weeks or sometimes even months for a distributor to restock the items you want most. We’re looking forward to this new arrangement and to supplying you with all your Swashbuckling needs again – and into the future!

More Pendraken coming soon!

December 18, 2019 News from the Dark Horse

We just wanted to take a moment to let folks know that we have committed to stocking more ranges of Pendraken 10mm miniatures, which will include all three genres manufactured by the company, Historical, Fantasy and Science-Fiction.
The down side is that with nearly 4000 product skus, it will take some time and effort to get everything listed on the webstore and stocked, so if you don’t see it, please get in touch via the contact form at the bottom of the webstore site and let us know what you’re interested in (or add it to your wishlist). We’ll try to shift the priorities to make those figures available online as quickly as possible...

Is MicroScale coming to Dark Horse Hobbies?

November 2, 2019 News from the Dark Horse

Well, all I can say at this point is that we are looking into various manufacturers, so if you have a favorite that you would like to buy from us, then please drop them a line letting them know where you would like to buy and drop a line letting us know as well. At least it might help us narrow down the scope of our search for vendors and products. Of course in the United States, GHQ models has been king of this hill for a very long time, but with manufacturers such as Heroics & Ros, Baccus, and Adler to name a few, those days of dominance could be over given the perceived (or real) retraction of GHQ products from local game stores.

On a side note, we did pick up the Knuckleduster 28mm scale Old West products and getting ready for our first Re-Stock order, so a big thank you to all who con...

Unofficial CAV:Strike Operations Force Builder

July 20, 2018 Combat Assault VehicleNews from the Dark Horse

A lot of folks found themselves unable to find the official CAV Army Creator after Combat Assault Vehicle was licensed to Talon Games. It was removed from the Reaper website with the anticipation of Talon Games providing a replacement that matched the new Strike Operations edition. Well after speaking with Jon at Talon Games, we were given permission to create the Unofficial CAV:SO Force Builder 3.x. Since the original source code to CAV 2E was not available to work from, we used our version of the Warlord 2E Army Creator as the basis for building this new tool. We will be taking this opportunity to improve upon the user interface and the data card output as well as some of the functionality during its development.

Work continues as time permits on adding new features that folks have expre...

Unofficial Army Creator

February 14, 2018 Warlord 2nd Edition

Warlord Army Creator 2.0.1 - Home Page - Above the fold

A lot of folks found themselves unable to locate the official Warlord Army Creator a while back. It was removed from the Reaper website due to security concerns centered around the old code used when it was first written. This led to concerns over the future of the game and frankly there wasn’t a lot of information available about the matter because while the folks at Reaper have developed a few awesome games in their day, it is not really part of their business model. So after speaking with the appropriate individuals at Reaper Miniatures, we were given permission to create the Unofficial Army Creator 2.x...

The Platform by Jason Pape

June 5, 2017 Warlord Scenarios

Normally the most practical place for the leaders is behind the front ranks giving orders and observing the battle. But sometimes all caution must be thrown to the winds and the Warlord must lead by example.


There is a control circle in the center of the board. Success depends on your leaders occupying this space and standing their ground no matter what the cost.

Table Setup and Deployments:

Normal deployment rules.
At the center of the board a CD sized circle is placed. This is the Platform described below. Add 2 extra cards in the draw deck that does not match either player. These are for the Platform.

The Platform:

The first time each game turn that a Platform activation card is drawn, 1 player rolls a die and consults the results below...
