What’s this? An appeal to donate money to a new charity for man machines that do grotesque things? No, its just a catchy title for this posting which concerns what I have been up to over the stretch of yet another Bank Holiday in the UK. Aside from talking Flintloque with Eve Hallow and a few other things I have been putting to bed three new paid for PDF downloads to be added to the growing list of such that 15mm.co.uk sells.
Released back in time for Salute 2012 this year there have been a number of wargamers eagerly awaiting the time when UM010 Support Pack, UM011 Cyberpunk and UM013 Eldritch Horror would be put out for use on computer screens, portable devices and the infamous ‘ease print’ for a cheap hard copy too; all for the princely sum of just five dollars. Each of them involves little in the way of real work (well as I would count it) but it needs a dozen or more hours of digital layouts for the purpose designed files for screen viewing and searching. I have had close to a hundred emails saying how much this is appreciated as few company’s seem to take this time and simply issue a PDF of the print file which often does not display properly and is not tagged for searching.
Each time a new release is made for USE ME I sit back and think of how great it is to see the series grow. I have said before that I did not expect thousands of copies sold, magazine and blog coverage, a frankly awesome day of sales at Salute 2012 or the constant ping of download versions flying off to far off lands. All from my own home brewed rules set. It will soon be time to set up an account and then make these and the rest of the digital titles available through specialised online sellers of such versions. Not to mention the next new print titles too.
Release is going to be end of this week with an email campaign too courtesy of Mail Chimp. If you are reading this later than that then refer to the below.
