Cipher Studios announces that the Anima Tactics™ Miniature Skirmish Game is being discontinued. Anima Tactics™ has had a long run, launching in 2006 with over 150 unique characters released. The game has become unsustainable from a business standpoint due to market and global distribution changes, so the hard decision to discontinue the line had to be made.

We at Cipher Studios thank our fans for the many years of support in building a wonderful community of players and hobbyists around a game we have loved creating.

Anima Tactics™ and Hell Dorado™ will no longer be sold through distribution. The ranges for both product lines will remain available online through the Ninja Division | Soda Pop Miniatures web store.

The Cipher Studios web store will close March 13th. Stock will then be transferred to the Ninja Division | Soda Pop Miniatures warehouse and resume sale on March 30.

The last new figures for Anima Tactics™ will be released through the web store, including a special edition Celia model.

The Hell Dorado™ range will continue. Hell Dorado™ new releases will resume, with the next release wave beginning during Q2 2015.

Hell Dorado

Hell Dorado is a tabletop skirmish game set in the depths of Hell itself, during the mid-17th Century. The forces of mankind from across Europe, the Middle-East, and East Asia have delved deep into the under realms of Lucifer and his Demons in order to achieve their own nefarious agendas. As the player, you take control of a company of warriors intent on fulfilling your mission, sent to you by your masters. This mission could be collecting valuable resources for the Catholic Church, or marshaling your demonic host to defend an important route from the invaders.
