Knight Models: Harry Potter Adventure Game : March 14th

Recommended Posts

This one is going to be tempting even just for the sake of gifting. I enjoyed HP, but I'm not a crazy fan. I have friends that are, and who like when I paint things for them.

The Sculpts they are showing are in resin. Does anyone know if the final mini will be in resin, plastic or metal?

My daughters were all over this.  They've had zero exposure to Knight Models or Kickstarter, but are all over this.

 

I'm down for painting them, but have no interest in the game.

 

This means we're probably backing.

I'm looking forward to this as my wife is a big HP fan!   But I haven't even finished adding all my wants to Bones IV, let alone budgeted for a new Kickstarter! :blink:

 

Stretch you dollars!  Stretch!  :lol:

"Each 35mm miniature is produced in high quality resin, making it ideal for collectors, painters and gamers alike. ... Players must explore these environments, resolving Challenges and Quests in order to secure victory." -- MK webpage : https://www.harrypotterkickstarter.com/

 

The board sure looks like a miniatures skirmish game, but hopefully MK will release the rules during the campaign... 

 

"Nope. These are the actual minis. Display quality resin. No joke." -- Twitter from Mark Latham, game designer. He also did Mantic's Walking Dead rules.

 

Hope I can afford this...!

Gee. Thanks a lot ced1106.

 

Just because of that one post of yours I've gone from uninterested to serious curiosity about this kickstarter.

 

Those are some very nicely painted minis. Sculpts look great too.

 

Mark Latham did an excellent job on The Walking Dead Ruleset which I'm a big fan of.

Dreading how much these will cost, but I'm sure I shall back at least for a few.

 

My thoughts too. Just hope its not an all or nothing campaign like Darksword does.... $150.00 minimum buy in... If that's the case, I will probably be out. Too many projects coming that I want.

Looks good, but Knight Models *shudder* they may as well be cast in platinum given how much they cost

      EDIT: Kickstarter is now Live!
       
       
      "Hi everyone, we are back - and with a brand new Kickstarter!
      Later this week we are launching a Kickstarter featuring Viking and Anglo-Saxon ships, buildings and accessories - and we wanted to get the word out.

      Yes...more ships! During the Kickstarter we'll be making some of our older ships and popular models available for a limited time as well as the new ones. Same designs - but now unpainted.
      To recap on our history: Last year we closed up our webstore and decided to pretty much quit making models. But after some thought we came up with the idea for a "Model of the Month" (MoTM) - evolve to go forward! Each month we make a brand new model available for purchase - we take orders, build and ship exactly that number, then "retire" the kit and move on to something else on the next month.
      We have been slowly building up customers and getting the word out there. Some models did better than others but what was clear to us was that we still enjoyed making models, just at a more relaxed pace. Only doing one model a month was way more enjoyable and because we could mass-produce more efficiently - it's also a better business model for us.
      Renaissance Miniatures has never been our bread and butter. We do okay on Model-of-the-Month and Kickstarters but the webstore was always more pain than gain.
      Then came our small Viking ship as one of our MoTM offerings. Vikings was a genre we had never done before but our ship models are always a favorite of customers. So, rather than spinning them out over months - lo and behold: A new Kickstarter featuring what a lot of people know us for..ships!

      The Model of the Month is on hold right now while we get the Kickstarter running - but it'll start up again in a couple of months. But for now, the Viking Kickstarter is the main priority. Getting the models made and sent out to backers as quickly as possible.
      So please join us next week and follow along. Give us some feedback and lets make this fun again. We love talking with you guys. And we love having our models be involved with your enjoyment of tabletop gaming. Now....lets play!
      If all goes well, we'll launch the new Kickstarter on the 9th (this coming Friday)"

      This looks very interesting although it's way above my hobby budget.

      Shipwrecked is an exciting new game based on an original concept by Matt Kirby, the designer of the the worldwide hit family game Apples to Apples®. Shipwrecked is a fast, fun game of bidding, bananas, monkeys and mayhem.
      Our extraordinary team of experienced designers, artists and illustrators have created an auction and set-collection game with a compelling theme, tight design, and top-tier art and components.

      Welcome to 
      Your once proud ship is now a wreck on the shore of an uncharted island. And you are not alone: Battered and broken vessels litter the rocky shore. You and other survivors are all desperate to repair your ships and return to your homes.
      Unfortunately, all the ships have been stripped of parts by a gang of motley monkeys, led by the wily Captain Coconuts. He’ll give you what you need - for a price! You’ll have to out-bid (and outsmart) the other castaways in the Captain’s auctions. Win what you need to rebuild your ship and you’ll sail away to victory!
