Legends of Signum

Recommended Posts

It looks like this one is starting to deliver.

It sounds like they're mailing them at a pretty slow pace (30-50 in a week- probably just means they didn't hire anyone in to ship).

Perhaps against the odds, they're getting this game out.  That's great news for everyone except Sans Detour who really just wish the worst on Signum and their backers.

Slow mailing is good. I recently placed a small order with them and a sword hilt was either broken in the post, or was broken when it was placed in the blister pack. Their customer service team are pretty good and responded quickly so we'll see what happened. Packing things slower and sending them off at a more sedate rate means that hopefully backers will receive fewer miscast or broken figures in the mail than if they just jammed stuff in a box and shoved them out the door in a hurry.

I got my shipping last Friday the 15th.  The tracking said it processed through Kiev on the 17th and it hasn't been updated since.

At 50/week some of us won't be getting their shipping notice for a while (probably me), but if the product is good I can happily wait.

There always seems to be a gap between leaving Ukraine and hitting US customs.

Received my pledge yesterday, everything seems to be in the box. The quality of the minis is fantastic :wub:

 

I'm so glad I went with this one rather than the Confrontation one.

Received mine.  Detail is excellent!  Lots and lots of flash but it clean up okay.  Only one major mold line but it runs down the length of her cloak so that will be fun to clean up :mellow:  Also lots of little gaps where pieces fit together which is expected to a degree but there seems to be more on this than I am used to including where the two wing segments meet which will be a lot of fun to fill and sculpt :mellow:

 

All parts of the hobby I guess and it will give me some practice in skills that I need to work on but the like I said detail is very nice and for what I paid I am overall pretty happy with it.

Kind of wishing I hadn't had to back out on this one, there were some rather nice looking sculpts in there...

I'm anxious as I got a good bit coming from them.

Trying to find who that one was...  Tara was... Piqued my curiosity enough I'd probably want to paint her, Northern Wulfens, Kevarr is tempting... 

 

But I backed out because of finances, such is life.

That was a holiday release direct from them, not -truly- part of the KS, though they do have some up still.

I'm probably unreasonably excited about the Aria figure, nice pose, good translucent cloth practice, and good wing practice. I also like the wolfen type ones...not that I'm biased at all >.>

Aria is probably the only one I regret not going in on the KS for for those same reasons.. 

 

Aria was the mini that tipped me from 'want' to 'need'. I managed to snag an early bird that someone dropped, probably because of the IP dispute with Sans Detour.

Same! I received Aria and the other miniature that they gave as an extra for being part of the Facebook group. Everything arrived perfectly. The minis look very good only thing is that there are quite a few parts to assemble but that doesn't really bother me. I will definitely pick up more minis in the future from them.

      I've been a fan of this comic for nearly a decade now... And now its finally going to end up in my bookshelf!
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/novil/sandra-and-woo-10-years-anthology-art-book/description
       
      About
      10 years! Over 1000 comics! One book! ... No, wait, two books!! (+ art prints) And I’m super happy with how they turned out!
      Update [11 November 2018] International shipping of the books is now available!! Scroll down to the chapter “International Shipping” for all the details!
      Sandra and Woo readers have been asking me for a printed version for years. Now, it’s finally here, the Sandra and Woo: 10 Years anthology! It collects all 1031 comics that have been published so far. Check out the following infographic for all of its features:
      I guess that almost all visitors of this page are familiar with Sandra and Woo. If not, here is a short introduction to the comic strip:
      Sandra and Woo is a comedy webcomic about love, food, raccoons and other important stuff. Written by Oliver Knörzer (“Novil”) and drawn by Puri Andini (“Powree”), it mostly consists of short story arcs about the adventures of middle-schooler Sandra North, her talking raccoon, Woo, and their friends. You can see some of our best comics on the following pages: [1], [2], [3], [4]. Here you can see six sample pages from the anthology (pages 19, 184, 265, 334, 444, and 547):
      6 sample pages from "Sandra and Woo: 10 Years" I carefully selected sketches and illustrations by Powree to fill the “holes” in the layout left by the irregular sizes of many comics. The anthology features a preface about the history of Sandra and Woo. Many of the comments below the comics include web links for further reading. Our editor Chris made sure that the English text contains no errors.
        But that’s not all! I also decided to publish an art book that collects illustrations of Sandra and Woo characters drawn by Powree and 50 other artists, The Art of Sandra and Woo. Most of the artwork by other artists was drawn as commissions or as entries for our yearly fanart contests. Check out the following infographic for the features of the art book:
      Here you can see six sample pages from the art book:
      6 sample pages from "The Art of Sandra and Woo" Powree and Fredy Siloy are currently coloring over a dozen drawings for the art book that have only been available in black and white until now. A few drawings will stay in black and white because they look better this way. I carefully arranged all illustrations so that all adjacent pages have a common theme, art style or particularly pleasing color scheme. All featured artists are listed in the preface. They will receive a fair share of the profits of the art book which they agreed to beforehand.
        The special editions of the books come with a sketch in form of a stencil, a good fit regarding the graffiti theme of the cover. For this, I will use undiluted high-quality acrylic paint and apply it to the interior side of the cover page with a sponge brush.
      Beneath the stencil, I will add my signature and my favorite catchphrase from the comic: “Freedom! Justice! Cookies!”
      Hand-made stencil inside the special editions Several reward tiers include the PDFs of the books. The PDFs will be DRM free. The resolution in each dimension will be half of the resolution of the original PDFs used for printing. As a little goodie, I will also include the PDF of our first book that was published in 2009, Sandra and Woo 1: The Woo.
       
      If you not only want to put Sandra and Woo into your bookshelf, but also on your wall, you can get a set of art prints (mini posters). The art prints are 17 x 11 in (43 x 28 cm) large and UV coated.
      The set of 5 art prints contains the following ones:
      The set of 11 art prints contains the ones above plus the following ones:
      All books and art prints will be printed by Ka-Blam, a print-on-demand comic book print shop. Over the years, they have shipped over 150,000 orders and printed more than 3 million comic books.
      I’ve received sample copies of the anthology and the art book and I’m very pleased with the print quality! I’m particularly fond of the black and white line art of the comics. The lines are sharp, have the correct thickness and no aliasing effects. In addition, the paper is thick and has a pleasant, slightly shiny, white color.
      Before receiving the sample copies, I was concerned about the binding of the 550 page omnibus. But the binding also makes a very solid impression. Therefore, I saw no need to publish the anthology in two volumes.
      My sample copy of the anthology Ka-Blam will also be responsible for shipping all orders. I’m sure they can do it much faster and better than I could. The anthology and the art book will be ready to be printed before the end of this Kickstarter campaign! If all goes well, Ka-Blam should be able to ship the first books just a few days after the end of this Kickstarter campaign.
      Note that the covers for the special editions first have to be sent to me so that I can add the sketch and signature. After that, I have to send the covers back to Ka-Blam. Since Ka-Blam is located in the United States and I’m located in Germany, this will add at least a month to the total fulfillment time. If fast delivery is your top priority, you should rather get the standard editions of the books.
      Why does the campaign last longer than the usual 30 days?
      The weeks before Christmas are always very hectic. Ending my first Kickstarter campaign right during the most stressful time of the year just didn’t sound like a good idea. I wouldn’t have been able to promise a delivery in December anyway.
       
      International shipping outside the U.S. is available for the books as well! These books won’t be printed by Ka-Blam, though. Instead, they will be printed by the well-known German print shop Wir-machen-Druck.de. They will then be sent to the backers by the German fulfillment agency Aimplify.com. The shipping costs of all reward levels are:
      Germany: 5€ (~ $6) European Union: 10€ (~ $11) Other countries: 15 € (~ $17) In comparison, sending the books from the U.S would have cost 46€ (~ $53)!
      The art prints are not available for international shipping since Wir-machen-Druck.de doesn’t offer this product category.
       
      The profits (after all expenses for printing, shipping, etc.) will be used in the following order:
      Pay the shares of the artists featured in the art book. Pay Powree for her work on Sandra and Woo and Gaia. Increase the prize money for the upcoming massive Sandra and Woo 10 Years Artwork Contest! Risks and challenges
      Since the books are ready to be printed and Ka-Blam is an experienced comic book publisher, the risks involved in this project are very low. I currently see the following risks:
      • There’s currently no backup plan for the worst-case scenario of Ka-Blam’s printing plant burning down (or Ka-Blam going bankrupt). In this improbable case, I would look for alternative printing companies located in the United States that could fulfill the Kickstarter campaign.
      • I don’t know yet how sturdy the plastic piece used for the stencil is. If it breaks (multiple times), this will lead to a delay of the special editions.
      • I’ll go on a month-long vacation to Japan from the mid of March 2019 to the mid of April 2019. In case we get a very large amount of orders for the special editions, this could lead to a further delay.

      So you have seen the minis but what about the rules doc? Well, here is just one example of the art quality thanks to the incredible talents of April Prime! Amazingly, this is still work in progress, but she is working on art for every dog and a few bonus pieces as well....hmmm..maybe art prints should be available...


      Here's a small piece of Dungeons and Doggies fiction to enjoy! Every mini will have an associated 'icon character' pre generated in the rules pack,and for the Cleric role we have Cerysse, gentle but determined protector of her friends. Many thanks to Kate, our writer, for providing this and many other story pieces for the project! We will follow up with a rules preview for the Companion Domain soon!

      About this project
       
       
      Time of Legends: Joan of Arc is a narrative miniatures board game that plunges you into the heart of the Hundred Years’ War. In this dark, medieval universe, kings plot for the throne of France, and on the battlefield their heroic knights clash with foes both real and legendary.
      For more than a century, from 1337 to 1453, the fields of France rang to the sound of constant warfare. The Hundred Years’ War is one of the longest wars ever fought and is the source of many of our collective ideas about heroic knights of old. It was also a time of myths and legends, and a fervent faith in the literal truth of the doctrine of Holy Mother Church. It is this world of strife and faith that this game recreates.
      In Time of Legends: Joan of Arc, all the creatures that the medieval people thought were real, are real. Whether they are represented on tapestries, in stained glass windows, or in illuminated manuscripts, we take them at their word. It is this dark and epic universe that you will explore in the game’s many scenarios. Some are historical, with no taint of the whispered legends of strange creatures. Others are replete with the supernatural or (saints preserve us) demonic.
      You are free to control the army of miniatures that represent your heroes, knights and peasants as you wish in order to achieve your goals. You will decide who moves and where; whether your forces explore, pray, converse with locals, or simply charge into battle. But before we get to the field of glory, you must first choose your side.
        
      Joan Of Arc, Bertrand Du Guesclin, La Hire, Gilles de Rais & Jean de Dunois (miniatures are supplied assembled and unpainted)  The French have a very large army whose leaders follow the code of chivalry to the letter. These noble knights form the main striking force of the army, with their infantry taking a subservient role. The French employ few archers, but do hire efficient crossbowmen to fight alongside their men-at-arms. All these warriors fight on behalf of the King of France, who sees the war as a chance to reclaim lands lost to the English under earlier monarchs.
      The Black Prince, Falstaff, John Talbot, John Chandos & John of Lancaster (note that minis come assembled and unpainted) The English king considers himself the legitimate heir to the throne of France, and there is some truth in this. In fact, he only failed to gain the crown because the French changed the rule of royal succession to stop him.
      The English army, though considerably less numerous than the French, are formidable combatants, who often have the best strategists. Their longbowmen wreak havoc on the battlefield, and have repeatedly bested the cream of French chivalry in battle. This is a slight that the French knights are determined to avenge.
      Archange Gabriel, the Unicorn & Angel (note that minis come assembled and unpainted) The army of God is made up of powerful, heavenly beings like the angels and archangels. They fight their righteous battles alongside the lesser creatures of God, and the weary mortals who struggle with sin, but are devoted to their creator.
      The Holy Army can be played independently, or allied with the French, or the English.
      The Witch, the Werewolf & the Ghost Warrior (note that minis come assembled and unpainted) The Devil’s army is made up of all sorts of foul creatures: werewolves, demons, skeletons, dragons, witches, and many more. Countless fallen mortals march alongside this monstrous host, having cast aside their God and sold their souls for mere wealth or power. It is rumoured that in this dark time, when the End of Days has never seemed so close, even the Devil himself may make an appearance...
      The Unholy Army can be played independently, or allied with the French, or the English.

      I would say this is a dream; in particular, it’s a project born 3 years ago, initially as a role-playing game (written and played successfully) but now the most important characters in this setting will come to life for collectors and painters. Every month a new story will come out and it will tell the events in this world and the Background of the various characters.
      I want to create a series of high quality models with a thrilling story telling that is constantly evolving.
      The Dark Whispers project includes a total of 8 characters, the first of these is Samael, The Raven Demon.
