Court of the Dead: Mourners Call is a 2-4 player, highly competitive board game that calls upon players to balance cooperative needs against their own ulterior motives. There are many paths to uniting the Underworld, but only one Mourner will realize his or her vision. The player who wields his or her power and faction influence the best will gain the most points to win.

You and your fellow mourners must work together to bring balance to the Underworld, but… only one of you can truly Rise, Conquer, Rule!

Yeah I kind of hope it is just way too expensive!

Just now, SamuraiJack said:

Hmm she might be just a model for Sideshow Collectables.. I'm investigating

 

Oooohhh!  If I can just buy a couple of these miniatures I would be extremely interested!  

 

Please let us know what you find.

I *MAYBE* could have lived with the last item, but the first 2 definitely kill this for me (well could always just RE-paint the pre-paint, but still)

Yeah no prepaint for me!  

 

Oh and the $460 price tag is just a hair out of my price range. But maybe like @SamuraiJack said they will make a smaller version for the game. 

 

It would be cool if they just offered just the miniatures as a pledge level.  Does anyone ever see KS like that?  Being able to buy just the miniatures but not the whole game?

Some Kickstarter projects will offer miniature pledges, but those pledges are like 10 to $20 away from the pledge cost that includes the game.

I think there are some misconceptions here. Sideshow have been making these Court of the Dead statuettes for a while, with a whole line of supporting projects like comics, puzzles, art books etc. They are just now branching into a board game based on their IP. The minis for the game seem to range from the size of the smaller Gods from Mythic Battles Pantheon to a more common tabletop scale. If you go to the sideshowtoy web page they have a link to a lot of Court of the Dead info. I found a teaser video that will likely be their kickstarter video:

 

The first half is a lot of interesting fluff for the setting, but the second half of the video is gameplay with a good look at the figures. They are unpainted. I also found a first-look video by Man vs. Meeple that talks about gameplay and shows a few more figures plus a lot of game info.

 

 

It does look like it might be an interesting game, if the price point isn't too bad I'll probably back. It looks like the game is made by ProjectRaygun who seem to be the actual game designers. I'm not familiar with them but they made the The Thing: Infection at Outpost 31 game which seems well received on BGG.

 

I was doing a little more searching and I found a web site devoted to the game. It has a pdf of the rules amongst other things. It doesn't appear to be a commerce site so it should be okay to link: http://projectraygun.com/mourners-call/

Oh no ::(:

As if it's not bad enough that Sideshow has to constantly tease me with their $500-$2000 gorgeous xenomorph models, now they have to tease me with more Court of the Dead. :down:

I have the Court of the Dead artbook and it's so gorgeous, I have been debating for a while on getting a second copy so that I can frame some of the prints without feeling too guilty about cutting up the book. But most of the line has just been too expensive for my budget, much like all of Sideshow's gorgeous art.

I'm definitely going to keep an eye on this to see what the price point is going to be. It might be worth it to me even just to get the Death figure because he is so gorgeous and I'm never going to be able to afford the $700 model. (Not when there are $2000 xenomorph queen models to strive to be able to afford :lol:)

      About
                                        1 CHF = 0,88 EUR = 1,02 USD
      Through this project we want to expand our new series of collectibles miniatures inspired by The Divine Comedy, the Dante Alighieri's poem, the book that recounts about the mystical and fabulous journey that the italian poet Dante Alighieri accomplished through the three realms of the afterlife: INFERNO, PURGATORIO and PARADISO.  
      Last year we have completed an amazing campaign here on Kickstarter dedicated to the launch of the first figures of this new series. The welcome that the project received was exceptional and many backers asked us about the characters of the poem of Dante Alighieri that we didn't produce during the first wave of releases. Well, in this campaign you'll find the expansion: a second series of figures inspired by The Divine Comedy of Dante Alighieri is ready to be produced, they are just waiting your support.
      1. You'll get the NEW miniatures of Dante's Inferno series several months before their official launch: these figures are NOT going to be released soon!!  
      2. Our designs are unique, we take care carefully about every detail of our productions in order to offer you the most spectacular miniatures for your collection.  
      3. Geryon is KICKSTARTER EXCLUSIVE, it means that this creature won't be available in the future! This Kickstarter is your only chanche to get it.  
      4. The other amazing figures will NOT have the same price when released: their price on Kickstarter is the cheaper price.  
      5. You're a fan of Aradia and your support will allow this company to continue to bring out fantastic models and dioramas - real pieces of art.  
      6. We have already managed successfully 2 Kickstarter campaigns in the past and intend to stand for it in the future.  
      7. We are equipped to produce high quality resin miniatures in large quantities and ship them in a reasonable time.  
      8. Returning Backers receive extra bonus.  
      9. You'll have the possibility to buy Add-Ons from previous series of Dante's Inferno at Kickstarter prices and get freebies.  
      10. You'll be part of a fantastic adventure to make this project reality for us all, keeping alive this unique miniatures series based on The Divine Comedy: Dante's Inferno.
      There are 2 kind of backers for this campaign, the old heroes who already descended to Inferno and are not afraid to return in that gloomy place and the new heroes who are descinding right now.  
      We have planned, for some add-ons, 2 different prices: one for "returning backers" and another one for "new backers".  
      - RETURNING BACKERS = Backers who already backed our first campaign of Dante's Inferno during 2017 https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1201812263/aradia-miniatures-the-divine-comedy-dantes-inferno  
      - NEW BACKERS = Backers who are backing Dante's Inferno for the first time  
      ALL THE BACKERS OF THIS CAMPAIGN WILL BECOME AUTOMATICALLY "RETURNING BACKERS" IN THE NEXT ARADIA KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN, BEING ABLE TO ENJOY ALL THE BENEFITS OF "RETURNING BACKERS".
