Privateer Press Shows Off Monsterpocalypse Miniatures

Privateer Press hasn’t bothered to update its Monsterpocalypse website, but it was showing off its kaiju collectible miniatures line at Toyfair. This photo was taken by the good folks at Action-Figure.Com. They’ve got an entire gallery of photos of the miniatures here.

Monster Island

Monster Island is a set of tabletop rules for giant monster combat. Grab some toy monster figures off the shelf, use the monster creation rules to design your monster of choice, and then fight it out for supremacy.

This game is very well done and is a great example of the advantages of PDF publishing for niche game products. There are numerous expansions and supplements on the Monster Island site that take the game in pretty much every direction a giant monster game should go — robots, human armies, alien invaders, etc.

Watch out, Tokyo Tower, here we come.

Super Giant Monster Showdown

Super Giant Monster Showdown is a kaiju card game. Each player is dealt cards, builds the baddest ass kaiju possible, and then tries to go to town on the other players. What’s not to love?

Well, except for the fact that it’s frigging sold out. If someone knows of anyplace that still has this for sale (or you’ve got a used copy you want to sell, email me at brian@carnell.com)
