Dave Thomas, and others, will be stocking the stuff.
May 1st: In the Red Star Coven section of the shop, we have an interesting item for the serious painter: the Expert Painter's Thumb Pallete. I use one for that fiddly detail work when I need to have the paint, the brush and the figure in the same space and in my focus. Very handy when painting fine detail and when using such techniques as blending.

Hello, and welcome to the new look Great Escape Games website.
We have combined both our Great Escape Games and Clash of Empires websites so that you can get all the information and news on what is happening at Great Escape Games all in one place.
Not only have we changed the look of our website but we are also changing our approach to the website. We want greatescapegames.co.uk to be an extension of not only our rules systems, Dead Man's Hand, Rules of Engagement and Clash of Empires, but also an up to date reflection of what we are working on and towards in terms of both new publications but also hobby projects. So as we are working towards a new source book we want people to be able to see what we are doing in the way of creating new armies, play testing, creating specific terrain etc so that everybody who is a part of our hobby can keep an eye on what we're up to and hopefully we can inspire some of you out there to pick up a paint brush and maybe start a new army or create a new bit of terrain. Well that's the hope anyway.
So what about the previous sites and the info that they had? Well it's all still there; we've created specific Dead Man's Hand, Rules of Engagement and Clash of Empires parts to the site and each has everything that the previous sites had, including all the army lists for both systems, hobby articles, battle reports, etc.
As well as that we have brought our online store up to date so that ordering any of our products should be easier than at any time before.
So there we have it, we want this front page to be a news section, letting you know what's going on at GEG and a portal to the DMH, RoE and CoE parts of the site. Just click on any of the section headers to the left or the links within the titles of the news items to get going. Recent news at Great Escape Games, including our blog updates, are in the section headed "What's going on at Great Escape Games?" to the right of this page.
