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:)

      Facebook says Kickstarter will start on 04/24   Legends of Signum is a 2 players fantasy world wargame, where players will face off against each other in the ruthless battles with help of the summoned characters and creatures. Each new game is unique as the player will have an ability to counter his opponents tactics with a help of highly variable decks, which player can assemble before the match. While the heroes busy fighting one another out on the battlefield, their loyal city dwellers are busy constructing new buildings that unlock new spells, abilities, and characters to aid their heroes in the victory. What also makes Legends of Signum highly unique in and of itself is that we combined best of both card and miniature wargame worlds into one highly immersive gameplay experience. From the very start, we set out to create a beginner-friendly game and so in the process of developing the game we did our best in avoiding complicated game mechanics that you would normally expect in a miniature wargame, yet still gave players vast variety of tactical options.   Legends of Signum is a unique combination of a miniatures wargame and a card game. Players control units of creatures lead by mighty heroes and build structures that allow more characters, relics and magic spells to be used on the battlefield. In Legends of Signum you devise your own winning strategy by creating an exclusive deck of cards and collection of miniatures.
      Legends of Signum is a game for two, where each player controls a hero and a group of characters and builds up their capital city. Initially only the hero figures are present on the battlefield, but as the game progresses, additional characters can be brought in by building the necessary structures. Victory is achieved by either destroying the opponent or bringing your capital city to prosperity. Duration of one game is about 30 to 90 minutes.
       
      These are the guys who run the Cadwallon Shop. They used to sell Confrontation recasts. They have stopped as discussed in the Confrontation Resurrection kickstarter thread. Legends of Signum are their own sculpts and their own game. The pictures are of stuff already available and I am not sure if they will be included in the kickstarter. I posted them so you can get an idea of what will be offered.

      Coming April 25th and based on the comics, not any past or upcoming movies...

       

      The Hellboy board game will be a co-operative experience in which players face off against some of the comic’s most famous foes. Up to four people take control of iconic BRPD members, such as Hellboy, Abe Sapien and Roger the Homunculus, before exploring gothic locations and uncovering ancient artifacts.
      Set to make its Kickstarter debut in April 2018, the Hellboy board game will feature stunning, pre-assembled plastic miniatures that accurately capture the look and feel of Mike Mignola’s world famous comic series.
      “Hellboy has a great cast of characters, diverse locations and legendary monsters from the pages of folklore and myth,” said Ronnie Renton, Mantic CEO. “The comics provide a fantastic foundation on which to build an immersive, fun and fast-paced co-operative board game that will let players experience some of their favorite moments from the series.”

      Some info on the Dakka forums, including "backward compatibility"  and "skirmish, and only skirmish" : https://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/150/717182.page
       
      Anyone have any info about the company? How able do you think they can pull off a KS? They've at least been in business for a long time?
