Tiny Battle Publishing's November releases are now in stock and ready for your order! And hey, this time we didn't need grognads to put up the pictures. :-)



John Gorkowski's In the Trenches World War I tactical gaming system was first published in 2009 by Grenier Games. Tiny Battle Publishing is proud to reintroduce this modern classic to gamers in a series of affordable folio editions, beginning with two brand-new Base Sets. Base Set I is Devil Dogs, a three-scenario look at the famous and brutal Battle of Belleau Wood that earned the United States Marines the respect of allies and enemies alike. Next month will see the release of a second Base Set, Doughboys. Either of these sets contain all the status and administrative markers you'll need to play any of the expansions that follow. Counter art is by Christian Sperling (Neuschwabenland, Sticks and Stones) with maps by Jose Faura (Our Royal Bones). The expansions coming in 2016 will include materials from the 2009 releases, appearing through the courtesy of Mr. Grenier.



The second game in Tom Russell's Blood Before Richmond series recreates the battle of Glendale, plus the artillery-only sideshow that was White Oak Swamp. It's Lee's last chance to cut off the Union retreat before the boys in blue entrench at Malvern Hill. Can they take control of the vital Willis Church Road? This battle has some very challenging terrain for the Confederates, rendered beautifully by Ilya Kudriashov, who also did the art for the first game in the series, Gaines's Mill. The Rebels are also starting to look a little weary, and are opposed by fresh, high-quality Union troops. But it's a fairly even contest, especially if the Union Player adopts the handicap of the special "Galena Rule".



The Shields & Swords series of medieval battle games debuted in the first issue of Yaah! Magazine with Stamford Bridge and A Hill Near Hastings. Tiny Battle is proud to reprint these games in one nifty package for those gamers who missed them the first time around. The games have been revised and rebalanced so as to utilize the updated ruleset that powers Our Royal Bones and We Happy Few. It also reprints the essay that accompanied the games, "A Tale of Two Harrys". This is intended to be the last S&S release for Tiny Battle, and so it's only fitting that we return to where it all began. Look for other reprints of popular Yaah! titles in the future.

The rulebook for In The Trenches is up over on ConSimWorld. Still waiting for the In The Trenches: Devil Dogs BGG page to be approved, then we'll be putting it up over here.
