Send it my way, I'll have that army painted by next week.

I didn't even back this game, but pics like that always make me happy...

Rule book is out, and news they are punting miniatures and gameplay features (invaders) to the wave 2 stuff.

 

I remain unimpressed

Yeah, I'm just not feeling good about this one.  But I'm only in for a base pledge, so I can live with that.

IT BEGINS: ASSEMBLY AND SHIPPING

*SNIPS text and pictures*

 

OUR PROMISE TO OUR BACKERS  

Now that you’ve gotten a better picture of what’s been going on behind the scenes, let’s get to the big news. The first Kickstarter Backer copies have left the factory and have started their shipping journey!

 

To honor our pledge promise of a four-week advanced shipment to our Retail Kickstarter Backers, the April 21 street date is the intended go-live date for those who backed the Retailer Pledge.

 

We could not be more excited to have reached this milestone!

 

WHEN WILL I GET MY COPY  

With a campaign of this massive scale—over 50,000 copies to deliver for just this first wave—we expect the full roll-out and delivery process to take up to 6 weeks for the core game fulfillment.

 

We are doing our absolute best to fulfill our promises and get the game into your hands and onto your table!

 

We’ll be back with another update next week to keep you up to date on how the assembly lines & shipping progresses.  

 

Speaking of boxes, here’s what the final product looks like. That’s 3.5 kilos of board game!

Boxes laid out on pallets as they are assembled. That’s a lot of space...

SHINYYYYY!

Glad to see fulfillment is starting (for wave 1), but I'm just not enthusiastic about the game anymore.  I did see some of the models at Adepticon last weekend, and I simply said "meh".  I don't know why I'm feeling so ambivalent, but I am.

My wave 1 shipment arrived, which is just the core set. Now to wait until October for the stretch goals and expansions. ^.^

Yep. Mine arrived too. Early reviews haven't exactly been glowing.

Can you say something about the miniatures? I didn't care much for the game, only was tempted by the miniatures. In the end, I did not get the game. In the pictures I've seen of the retail miniatures, they don't seem to be that good ... but it might be the pictures.

 

Edit: the bosses look great, but the rank and file enemies (hollows) ... don't know, the archers look bad in the pictures.

If no one has upped any by this evening. I'll post a few shots of the miniatures when I open the game and inventory the pieces.

The sculpts are pretty good. The production quality is slightly less good but not towards the lower end. I'd say they're pretty good for board game pieces. Above average for tabletop pieces (if you take some of the lower quality stuff into account). I won't take some pictures now because it's late in the evening and my camera insists on using the flash in electric light. I can disable it by using a few modes that don't allow close ups or I can wait 'till tomorrow (by which time the other guy's probably going to have pictures up for you anyway).

 

Be careful with the Knight hero. Mine had a misscast quillon on the body side. I've been in touch with steamforge and they're hoping to get a replacement sent out to me soon.

      28mm metal Renaissance-style skeleton army for war games based on art by Hans Holbein, Durer, and such like. It's a cool style. It's only got a week left and I wasn't able to find another thread for it. I'm not affiliated but thought it looked cool and backed it.

      About this project
       
       Trio is born from my videogames experience, is born by my idea to create a variegated set that include different types of subjects including animals, armours, textiles and skins of various types. The busts of this campaign are all handsculpted by Alberto Acquaviva and me and all are in resin cast. Through this busts i want to show you how the wisdom can be beautiful and delicate, how the courage can be aggressive in front of a trial and how the power can corrupt your face...and your soul. All this collection busts are composed just by one piece except Heero, the courage that is composed by three parts. The collection has been conceived to be easy to assemple and ready from the unboxing to be painted. Is a good trial for both beginners and veteran painters. You can play with colors, lighting effects or freehanding on open surfaces, on little details or animal mantles. So,I hope my project excites and involves you like it did to me. Thanks for reading. Below you'll find the description of all characters, their size and more details on this campaign.
      Regarding the shipping costs there are two price ranges.  
      First range: shipping up to 4 figures, 5€  
      Second range: 5+ figures,10€ However be informed that the more models you'll purchase, the bigger will be the discount applied, so your shipping will be anyway cheap.

      After the success of the first campaign for 16th century Knights I'm now expanding my 28mm Renaissance range with charging mounted Knights!
      These new Knights will have couched lances or be using hand weapons on galloping horses.
      Further I have reworked the figures from the first Knights campaign to make them easier to assemble, they now have sockets to attach the hands and heads. There are also some revised poses and new heads.
      Sets one-three painted so you can get a feel for how these figures can look. Please note these sets are being revised and pictures of the new ones will be added as the campaign continues. These figures are in the popular 28mm scale and will fit well with figures such as Perry miniatures, they can be used for many periods and settings in the 16th century but also for fantasy collections.
      Please note that the figures are unpainted and require assembly they are not toys for children. Also the figures shown still have minor refinements to be made before casting.
      My figures have been highly researched and are packed with details, I have tried to give many of them an explosive sense of movement. Every mounted knight figure comes with a choice of two heads and two plumes the horses are all separate from the riders and all nessesary weapons are included. This means you can customise your figures to create a very unique collection.
      if you back the campaign you will receive you figures at a 25% discount of normal website prices, which means that for the campaign a pack of two mounted Knights cost £15
      Also if the main campaign is a succes as a stretch goal the first pikemen figures will be released...these figures will be in full forward motion with levelled pikes. They can be used for either Landsknechts or Swiss pike.

      In the most distant reaches of the world, magic still exists, embodied by spirits of the land, of the sky, and of every natural thing. As the great powers of Europe stretch their colonial empires further and further, they will inevitably lay claim to a place where spirits still hold power - and when they do, the land itself will fight back alongside the islanders who live there.
       
      Spirit Island is a cooperative, settler-destruction strategy game for 1 to 4 players designed by R. Eric Reuss and set in an alternate-history world around A.D. 1700. Players are different spirits of the land, each with their own unique elemental powers, forced to defend their island home from colonizing Invaders spreading blight and destruction. Work with your fellow spirits and the native islanders to increase your power and drive the invading colonists from your island in this strategic area-control game.
       

       
      This game was playtested at some of my Fourth of July parties, and though I haven't had a chance to play it yet myself, the game comes highly recommended.
       
      The interesting bit here is that you play neither the Invaders nor the Inhabitants of the island, but the spirits trying to alter the balance of power in defense of the Inhabitants themselves.
