Hello everyone, we hope you're all well and in fine fettle ... we've held off a little longer this time around for an update as we wanted to give you something really substantial. So let's dive in to what we'll call The Workhouse Week ...

Production News

We're chuffed to bits with this 'weeks' production news. All paper and card elements of the core game, expansion and additional products are now done! Every single one! Our factory are now hand-checking the miniatures to make sure that you get perfect ones! You want some pictures? Here you go, cram these into your ocular cavities ...

That's a lot of boards!

The factory are now on the assembly part of the production process which shouldn't take too long but involves checking each component and then building each box and putting all of the goodies inside!

The Pact Diorama

We've now fulfilled all orders of The Pact Diorama and we're already receiving Work In Progress photo's from eager hobbyists! We do still have some of these very limited edition diorama's left and they're available now on our website. 

https://www.workhousegames.com/shop/special-editions/the-pact-limited-edition-diorama/

That being said ... we also want to say thank you to all of our backers and supporters. As such we're giving away three diorama's in our competition available here ...

You can always post them to Twitter and Facebook too, just make sure you tag us in them, we can not wait to see!

The Anthology

Not to be accused of sitting on our posteriors, we've been working out our next steps and can confirm that the Anthology will be happening! Shall we do a sneaky reveal of some of the authors that will be writing for the collection? OK, here goes ...

Gav Thorpe

We couldn't do a collection of stories and not include Gav Thorpe. We think you'll agree that 'A Sinister Beginning' was wonderful and really captured the birth of the world we're building! 

Graham McNeill

Graham is one of our absolute favourites, his books for Black Library earned him a well deserved spot on the New York Times best seller list and is a recipient of the David Gemmell Legend Award too! Not only that but he currently writes for Riot Games, producers of the immensely popular game League of Legends!

Sarah Cawkwell

Sarah is a fantastic author with a host of great titles under her belt! Her novel ''Valkia the Bloody' is one of our favourites and deals with the creation of a demonic hero in the world of Warhammer! She currently is also writing for Wild West Exodus and her short stories about Overwatch are an absolute delight!

Mark Latham

Mark is an amazing fantasy author who has written a host of Victorian themed novels. His Lazarus Gate and Sherlock Holmes stories are utterly fantastic and we can't recommend them enough! We're extremely lucky to have Mark along for the ride too as his knowledge of all things Victoriana is just unreal!

So that's four wordsmiths for now, and there are more ... it's all a bit too exciting!

Oh, one final little plug for a friend of ours ... go and check out Chapter & Verse miniatures over on Twitter, they're going to be unveiling their sculpts very soon for their limited edition miniatures line and we think you're going to love 'em!

      @Andrew, why thankyou! We're all KS backers ourselves and didn't want to leave people waiting, especially when you've given us your cold hard cash!

      @Kehlenschnitt, You should put it to the top of your list! It's awesome! We have two or three more authors lined up for this anthology, we're not telling yet though :P

      Fantastic update and glad you've decided to create an anthology for this wonderful universe. Gav Thorpe and Graham McNeill are top-notch authors and although I own "Valkia the Bloody" from Sarah Cawkwell I haven't had the time to read it yet. This book is an instant buy and I'm really excited to see who else contributes to this anthology (any chance to see a short story from Dan Abnett ?)
