Jara Bird Racers from Pigmi Games

Pigmi Games presents a set of six hand-drawn, double-sided, 30mm scale original paper Jara Bird RACER miniatures. Also included is a bonus racing track and constructable dice. 
Jara Bird Racers 
The Splinterwood elves love racing and nothing gets their blood pumping like a good Jara Jara bird race. It's very common for outsiders to get the Jara Jara confused with the common Jara bird though they are close cousins they are not the same bird.
The Jara Jara bird is the fastest land animal on the continent and can run unburdened up to 75 MPH. So the riders of the Jara Jara have to have amazing reflexes and quick wits.
The Female Jara Jara bird is a domestic creature and will never stray far from the nesting area. All racing birds are males which makes for an interesting time as they are completely territorial and will not stand the company of another male, this includes Splinterwood elves. This is why all the riders have to be females the Jara Jara birds will attack any male trying to ride them.
The only thing that the elves like better than watching the races is betting on them, and now you can to! Place all the racers on any number and roll the dice what ever number comes up then move that bird one space forward which ever bird crosses the finish line first is the winner.
Miniatures designed for use and compatability at 30mm scale, printable bases are included.

Splinterwood Elven Spearmen and Mounted Hero!

Pigmi Games presents two offerings this week, and one of them is free!  The Splinterwood Elven Spearmen; A unique fraternity of Splinterwood Elves the Splinter Spears are highly trained to move as one and strike as one. They start their training when they are very young and once they are inducted into the Spears they are a member for life. By themselves a Splinter Spear would be a formidable opponent but as a group they posses the skill to turn the tide of any battle. It is not surprising that so many of the Splinter knights are pulled from the dedicated ranks of the Splinter Spears.

Also up this week is the Elven Hero mounted on a Battle Yak, and he's free!

Find them both here; Pigmi Games

Splinterwood Greater Green Dragon

Pigmi Games has added a Greater Green Dragon to the forces of the Splinterwood!

The Splinterwood Dragon is a hand-drawn, double-sided, 2.5D, 30mm scale original paper miniatures suitable for any fantasy rpg or skirmish gaming table.

The Greater Green Dragons are found only in the heart of Splinterwood......
  The Greater Green Dragon begins it's life as a whelp born into a clutch of three or four. Sadly many of those eggs will never reach adulthood as, though a mother Dragon can be fierce and terrible, she can't always protect her offspring from predators. Lets watch now as one of the eggs begins to hatch. See the spine growing out of the young dragons nose. that's a form of egg tooth and will eventually fall off to be replaced by a leathery upper lip. Notice also that he has no wings at all. The wings of the Greater green dragon don't start to grow in for the first two years of it's life. This leaves it free to move quickly through the underbrush and hunt its food as well as avoid the predators that will be stalking it for a few years to come. Once the Dragon is borne his mother will leave the clutch to their own devices and are young male has to grow up very quickly. Now quickly for a Dragon is a relative term as it will take nearly 70 years before he reaches his full height but as we skip forward to his adolescence we see that he's the size of a large horse and his wings have fully developed at this point. It's time to try out the wings. tentatively he stands on the precipice of a large drop and with one final act of courage he pushes off leaving terra-firma behind as he soars (albeit awkwardly) through the skies. Yes, flying will take some getting used to but in time he will become an aerial master. Here we have caught up to our Dragon and we find him sniffing around an old rock quarry. For many years it was unknown why the greater green dragons were drawn to sites such as these and we sit quietly as he sniffs out and chooses a piece of rock and uncharacteristically begins to gnaw away at it until he has completely devoured it. It is the Magnesium in the rocks that he is after. Soon it will be dissolved in his stomach and is absorbed into his blood and transported into a special bladder where it becomes the final ingredient in a volatile cocktail of gasses that when mixed with oxygen explodes into a stream of flame. It is clear by his unhappy look that he's going to need some practice at directing the flow of his fire.
  As we skip forward another 60 years we see our young male at the peak of his maturity his wings are large and impressive. Looking upon him we see him as all have come to envison the Greater green dragon of Splinterwood. The Orange yellow coloration is as much to impress females as it is to scare off rivals and the same with his horns they aren't for defense as the teeth, fire, claws and spines are all good for defense. The Horns are to impress the ladies ... the bigger the horns the more likely he's going to have the right stuff ... they won't impale him because they curl around the side of his head. The Greater green dragon male's horns will grow for the remainder of his life and Dragon skulls have been found that have horns weighing in excess of 300 lbs.
  The spines are like fingernails, they can filed down and they will grow back. Often those who are talented enough to ride such a creature must file down the spines where the saddle will be. The tail of the greater dragon ends in a large bony protrusion that is shapes like a scythe perfect for splitting wood and skulls alike. Dragons will spend hours sharpening it on trees and rocks. Though the Splinterwood elves have taken to riding these great monsters they can only do so because the rider develops an affinity with the dragon at a very young age. This requires patience and a near psychic ability that only one elf in a thousand will possess. Most times it's best to just avoid this fierce and noble creature of the great Splinterwoods. Let's leave it now to continue on in it's journey of life.


Splinterwood: Kl'Cari Cavalry

Mayhem in Paper is pleased to present the first of many paper-model offerings from Pigmi Games!

From the description; Pigmi Games presents their first set of five hand-drawn original paper miniatures suitable for any fantasy rpg or skirmish gaming table!

The Splinterwood Kl'cari have developed an almost Amazonian quality to them taking on many distinguishing traits; such as the females growing antlers. Unlike many Cervus they don't shed them at any time. The antlers will keep growing as time goes on and the Kl'cari are actually quite proud of them.
This difference in breeding also gives way to a more fierce nature rather than a sexual one. It is this fierceness that the Splinterwood elves have come to rely on. In fact, the Splinterwood elves have integrated the Kl'cari so deeply into their society that it is not uncommon to find them in every part of the elven social structure.
