Yggdrasil, anyone played it?

Recommended Posts

I recently picked up a new (for me) rpg called Yggdrasil. It's a Norse Heroic fantasy by Cubicle 7. I'm curious as to whether or not anyone has actually heard of or even played it before.

 

If you have played it what are your thoughts thus far?

I haven't been able to sit down with a group and play it but here are what I think:

 

-As with another game I've seen by Cubice 7 the artists here need a serious raise. The artwork is beautifully gritty and exceptionally well done.

 

-The mechanics are simple and have an interesting twist however. You see after you decide a character concept you roll runes for your characters fate and these can come in to play for or against you at the player's and GM's discretion.

      Hi everyone.
      Here is a mini I have been working on for several weeks.
      Lately, I am lucky to be able to paint a little every day.
      Unfortunately, it is only for 5-15 minutes at a time.
       
      This figure is part of my growing batch of options for my GM running us through the Pathfinder Adventure Path, Reign of Winter.
      I always thought blue, white, and gold were good colors together.  It is popular in many heraldic devices.
       
      I am most happy with this figure in terms of the following:
      The freehand wood grain of the axe, the outcome of the gold NMM on the belt buckle/hardware in front.
      Also, getting his eyes right in the recesses of his helmet.
       
      What I am least happy with is the runes along the white part of the tabard trim.  The area is too small to work with to really get good darklining around each rune, so they are a little indistinct.  Also, I tried to make each one its own independent polished gold SENMM.  I don't think it turned out too well, because it's just too small an area for each piece.  I tried it on the scabbard as well, which worked a little better.  But, this is the most confusing part of highly polished SENMM:  Do multiple pieces at different heights have their own horizon line?  I painted it as if they do, but am not sure that's realistic...
      Also, the transition of the cow horns on his helmet is a little washed out in the photo, but also very subtle in hand.
       
      Finally, one additional comment.
      I have seen a lot of posts about this figure comparing it to the metal version, and bemoaning a lack of detail in the BONES version.
      I really tried to bring out the life of this BONES model, because I personally feel that the sculpt is great, and the translation to BONES is very good.
       
      So, without further ado, here is my version of Sigurd, Viking, BONES 77399.
       
      Please provide C&C, especially as it pertains to the issues I brought up above.
      Thank you.

      Ase Arvidson from Red Box Games. Another miniature that had to suffer before I've settled (kind of) for a sealing method. 
       
      Ase was a quick, and rather painless, paintjob. I have decided to try and speed up things (since I'm at the time of writing 229 finished miniatures short of having painted all my RBG minis....). This means having to settle for less (one sacrifice is way less time trying to paint eyes on small minis), but with how Ase turned out I'm quite OK with that. The original sculpt had a rather ugly arrow running down the leg, which I cut away and replaced with part of a metal paper clip. I'm not a sculpter so that's the best I could manage (I have since though about using needles but the paper clips are way cheaper :D).

      After many distractions and other projects, I've finally finished my set of miniatures from the "Blood Rage" board game by CMoN.  I've been working on them on and off (mostly off) for over a year...the first few Giants were finished over a year ago according to my Facebook memories.
       
      I've posted some of the monsters before, but I figured I'd put them in this Show Off as well as part of the set.
       
      First, we have the Gods of Asgard:


       
      Odin:


       
      Heimdall:
       


       
      Tyr:
       


       
      Frigga:
       


       
      Thor:
       


       
      Loki:

      As you are probably already aware, there is an official Middle-earth D&D 5e setting being released this Summer by Cubicle 7.

      This will no doubt create strong demand for figures for people's campaigns.

      I've noticed there are numerous figures already in production that will adapt well. The orcs in KS3, the Mountain Troll in KS2 (a tad Jackson-esque, but perfect for a big Olog-Hai or the like:  MORE OF THESE!), the ogres in KS3 (perfect Tom, Bert, and William-MORE PLEASE!), the Balor from KS2 makes a passable Balrog (assuming Balrogs have wings), many dwarves, etc. This is only natural, as D&D is substantially derivative of Tolkien and Reaper's choice of subject matter is substantially derivative of D&D.

      Now obviously, lacking a license, nothing would be official, and trademarked names would be verboten. However, with this firmly in mind, my question is this: 

      a) which figures already in production do you think work best as Middle-earth characters, monsters, etc., and

      b) what would you like to see to fill out the traditional Middle-earth bestiary in any potential KS4 or LE KS, bearing in mind that as the actual number of different species of monsters will be more limited, a variety of weaponry, poses, armour, sexes, and the like will be  important

      This is Ragnar Lothbrok from Gripping Beast Miniatures and he's a perfect illustration of why my unpainted pile is flooding over the brim. I bought the figure the second week of january this year and he's been left semi painted for half a year. So, in my everlasting quest to convert my unpainted pile into a full color army I finally willed myself into finishing him. 
       
      There are some areas that I should have done better (due to sloth the blacklining is to aggressive for example) but all and all I'm quite happy with how he turned out.
