Game: Village Attacks

Publisher: Grimlord Games

Synopsis:

Village Attacks is a cooperative castle defence game where players take on the roles of the most infamous creatures of folklore and legend from around the world! Deep in a remote part of the world, you and your monstrous associates have taken up residence in an immense castle. But the local village has had enough of the evil that lies at its door and has decided to lay siege to the castle in an effort to exorcise your wicked taint from the world.

The villagers may be weak, but they are not alone! News of your malevolent presence has spread far and wide; hunters and heroes have come from all corners of the globe to vanquish you! Some have come for the fame, others for the glory, and some even for the reward. But they share a single goal; your doom!

Looking at their previous project (Endure the Stars), it sounds like they are in the midst of shipping whenever their product arrives at the distribution site. So probably won't be live until that finishes.

I recall something about them aiming for a February launch somewhere. I've been anticipating this one for a while now. It's one to watch. However there's also going to be Judgement and the Atlantis dwarven kickstarter going on around the same time so it's all going to be pretty tight.

I'm really looking forward to this one...the designs for the miniatures are great.  Plus, I've heard a rumor that a playable Baba Yaga is pending...

I ... did not budget for this one ... *scrambles to find some emergency funds*

I'll be honest, as soon as I heard "playable Baba Yaga" I reworked my Kickstarter budget (reducing and dropping some others, thankfully, rather than just saying, "Eh, old budget was too low anyway."

      WHAT IS THIS KICKSTARTER ABOUT?
      This KickStarter is a joint venture between Royal Art Games and Impact! Miniatures to bring two incredible looking metal Fantasy Football teams from Rolljordan into affordable resin for about half the price of the metal teams to give more gamers the opportunity to own these great models. The resin versions of these models will be molded from the re-touched masters that Rolljordan produced to make this a better more pitch-worthy team than when it was first released. The miniatures will be offered in Standard team which have everything you need to have a full team and Deluxe versions that will give you sideline characters (like cheerleaders) and star players.

      The KickStarter is bringing the Necro Undead and Volmarian Dwarf teams into resin. The KickStarter is also offering the teams from the last joint venture KickStarter at great prices.

      Here are the team and pack selections for the KickStater.



      The Deluxe team is the Standard team plus this Deluxe pack





      The Deluxe team is the Standard team plus this Deluxe pack





      The Deluxe team is the Standard team plus this Deluxe pack





      The Deluxe team is the Standard team plus this Deluxe pack






      The miniatures in the four teams are the new resin that Impact! started using this year that is stronger and able to be painted much easier than our past resin. The miniatures all come with bases and are provided unpainted. The miniatures will require light clean up and some assembly (although many of the models are one piece). Impact! Miniatures has created several KickStarters and delivered to all backers on all our previous KickStarters so bid with confidence. We are keeping this KickStarter small and focused so that we can quickly produce the teams and get them shipped out on time. NOTE on shipping: Shipping options are displayed when you pledge for a reward. Shipping is free to the USA, $5 to Canada and $10 to all other locations.

      About Ambionics
       
      My name is Ben.  I’ve been on an extraordinary journey over the past two years which started when my son was born.  Sadly, Sol lost most of his lower left arm due to a blood clot following an injury at birth.  
      I responded as any parent would have. I looked into how Sol would be treated and what support we could expect.  I quickly learned that many toddlers abandon prosthetics early on and I wanted to know why so Sol would stand a better chance. Calling on my psychology background and my passion for engineering, I started doing my own research.  I noticed big gaps in what was being offered and saw lost opportunities at several key stages.  Rather than complain, I decided to do something about it and set up Ambionics. 

      (Above) Dressing change at Alder Hey Children's Hospital post-amputation
      We deliver a totally new kind of online service and are currently developing unique functional prosthetic solutions (including our world famous hydraulic technology) for children with upper limb differences everywhere.    
      Our first press release (March 1 this year) went viral.  The response was truly out of this world and our story was covered in every Country and in every language. Most of the media attention centred on the hydraulic prototype we are working on. 
      It's inspired by the way spiders use fluid to move their legs (to find out more please follow the press links below). However, there is much more to Ambionics besides this.  Let me explain...
       
      Early Intervention

      Children are usually given their first prosthetic arm between 6 and 12 months of age. We introduce prosthetics much sooner - one month after an amputation (as in the case of my son) or from the moment a child with a limb difference arrives home from hospital.  The director for innovation at NHS Wales described our research based approach as ‘potentially revolutionary’. 
       
      Replace casting with scanning

      Normally parents must take time off work to attend appointments at specialist centres which might be hundreds of miles away from where they live.  A prosthetist then creates a plaster cast mould of the affected arm and this is used to make a crude socket.  Young children often find this stressful.  They can wriggle and resist when the cast is taken and any sudden jerk can result in a poor fitting socket and a poor first experience of prosthetics. 
      At Ambionics, parents simply scan their child’s arm while they are asleep then upload the file to our online platform. We do the rest and deliver the prosthetic through the postal service! Simple! It takes about five minutes to do the scan and 40 minutes for us to model a socket. It’s worth noting that within two years all phones and hand held devices will come with a scanning application built in.

      (above) The first 3D printed prototype, April 2016
       
      5 Day Turn Around (compared to 6 - 11 weeks)

      A traditional prosthetic can take as long as 11 weeks to make. 
      From a fresh scan, we can produce a new arm within a matter of hours
       
      Backup Copies

      If a traditional prosthetic is misplaced or damaged it can take five weeks to get an appointment for a re-mould, and another 11 weeks before the replacement arm arrives (that’s four months without an arm!).  At Ambionics we just print another from the digital copy we keep.
       
      Reduced Waste

      Traditional prosthetics are discarded after use.  To help keep costs down and reduce our carbon footprint, Ambionics only replace parts that need replacing or upgrading – this is usually just the detachable socket.   
       
      Managing Growth Rates

      Traditionally, children receive two arms per year (based on NHS service) which means that for a lot of the time the socket is either too tight or too loose.  Plaster cast arms are designed to be slightly oversized so children can grow into them. This is a false economy in our opinion because loose or unsecure arms and ones that are too tight don’t inspire confidence. It’s easy to see why so many children stop wearing them. We recommend at least four or five sockets per year depending on the needs of the child.   
       
      Making Devices More Accessible

      In most cases, cosmetic arms are made of fibre glass coated in varnish with a functionless silicone hand (often described as creepy looking).  These are surprisingly expensive for what they are! In the US, a cosmetic arm can cost as much as $5,000!  Our knowledge of 3D printing and scanning has the potential to seriously reduce these costs, making prosthetics accessible to children everywhere (and anywhere!)
      We also believe in customising the look of the hand.  We want to help break the stigma of 'cosmetic' prosthetic devices by offering bold colours and a choice of designs for infants. 
      We even encourage older children to take part in the design process.  What better way to meet a young person's needs than to enable them to produce their own assistive devices and accessories!
