Home and Void Scar News

Hi and welcome to Void Scar Miniatures – a small, but ambitious, tabletop miniatures company based in Nottingham in the UK.

Void Scar’s primary aim is to produce high quality 1/100 scale sci-fi models and an associated IP with accompanying wargaming rules. As things progress, Void Scar Miniatures will attend regular wargaming events too, where you will get to see the range of models up-close and previews of what’s coming.

The designs you’ll see are inspired by near-to-medium futuristic science fiction themes and ideas. Many integrate realistic aspects of modern and projected military concepts to create a collection of exciting and sensible model designs. New factions will continue this principle, with each unique in their own aethestic.

Join Void Scar on a journey to explore this vision and watch it grow. Please take a look around the Void Scar Miniatures site by clicking on the menu options above.

Be sure to swing by the Void Scar Miniatures Facebook page and say hello!

  • From Ashes 0.1.0 on the way! – new Unit profiles

    Hi all!

    Today I’ve got the exciting news that the next From Ashes update (yes I know it’s been a while!) will be out soon – August 5th to be exact.

    A big focus of this update is to further streamline the gaming experience, reducing the ‘mental maths’ that comes with any table-top game, so you can focus on the decision making for your forces.

    Here’s a little look at a couple of profiles – a Drop Pod and a Harvester Shield Mech, both from the Xeraak Triarchy.

    Not a great deal has changed, but the keen-eyed among you will notice that there’s two new stats – Size and Enclosed. These are fairly self explanatory and hint at the way Engage Commands have been updated, speeding up gameplay with a common set of values across all units. Size is identical to the old Large Target rule, where the number increases the accuracy of those shooting at it, while Enclosed is the number of Blast Markers ignored when the Unit itself uses its weapons.

    Next week we’ll go through how weapons profiles are changing – be sure to check back in with Void Scar Miniatures for more!

    Don’t forget you can help support the development of the From Ashes miniatures game by donating £5 via the PayPal Donate button on the From Ashes Downloads page.

    See you next time!

  • Price rise is here and some other stuff too

    Just to let you all know that the dreaded price rise has arrived. You’ll now see many products updated to the new pricing structure. You’ll also notice that there’s no longer alternative options to have non-based infantry and walkers too. It just makes everything a little more streamlined so that resources can be better spent elsewhere!

    Onto other stuff…

    For a while now I’ve had folks ask ways in which they can get a hold of the Sol Enclaves Anvil Tank Crew. Well, these are now available through the online store via the link below, so should provide that extra bit of narrative play to your games.

    On a separate note, the 3D-prints have arrived for the new SFA Dragoon infantry. These spec-ops troopers are perfect for raiding behind enemy lines, where they can use their silenced carbines to great effect neutralising enemy VIPs, or their demo charges to blow up other high value targets.

    Not only that, but the SFA will be getting new glide-pods, allowing them to deliver the Dragoons to their target, or perhaps enable Railgunners to get close to enemy heavy armour.

    As I mentioned last time, the next From Ashes update it’s on its way, and has lots of big changes to the way the game works, making it a more streamlined experience and reduce the ‘mental load’, as it were – watch this space!

    See you at the frontlines!

  • Price Rise reminder and From Ashes Gaming Day venue change

    Hi all!

    Here’s a brief reminder that on July 1st, that’s NEXT MONDAY, many Void Scar products will be increasing in price, albeit only a couple of pounds here and there. Also, there will no longer be an option to have infantry/walkers without bases.

    On a separate note, the From Ashes Gaming Day on July 14th has been brought forward a day to Saturday the 13th, and at a brand new venue – the Dice Cup, again in Nottingham. The folks here are absolutely fantastic, extremely friendly and even have a café onsite too!. It’s also right next to the Victoria Centre car park so you should easily be able to find parking arrangements. Check out the Void Scar Events Page for more info.

    From Ashes 0.1.0 is busily being worked on – keep an eye out for its release (hopefully!) in the next month or so.

    See you on the frontlines!

  • From Ashes Gaming Day – Leadbelt Games Area July 14th, and price rise announcement

    Coming soon is another From Ashes Gaming Day at the prestigious Leadbelt Games Arena on July 14th. This should give you plenty of time to build your armies and get ready for the battles to come.

    On the day, you’ll be paired up with other From Ashes players where you can learn how the game works, explore new tactics and have a generally spiffing time with others like yourself.

    Price Rise

    On a more difficult note, at Void Scar Miniatures we’ve tried to keep costs down as best we could, maintaining the same structure for years. But things as they are, mean that in order to maintain the same quality, we need to rise prices. This will affect most (not all!) products across the Void Scar Miniatures range.

    This new pricing structure will come into effect on July 1st, so please make sure you take advantage of the lower prices beforehand.

    Right, must crack on with the next From Ashes update
