Okay, so first time 'round the miniatures looked gorgeous. They were in a very large scale 'though. What was it, 75mm? This time a lot more of the focus seems to be on the gameplay. We hardly get a decent look at the figures. Now I know they've moved to a smaller scale to widen appeal and that's a good thing. I'm alsoa ware that, at a smaller scale there would be a lot of loss of detail. Unfortunately, from the images they're willing to share, I can't really tell quite how much has changed. It's almost as if they are afraid to admit they're making a game with miniatures in it.

 

I hope they do well, I hope they do really well. I'm just not sure if I can afford to back this one with Nova Aetas and Shieldwolf both going at the same time. I think that if I do end up backing this campaign I'll probably be a late end backer who sneaks in towards the finishing line when he knows if he's got enough money or not.

Hi Balgin.
 
I`m a game designer for the Guards of Atlantis: tabletop MOBA.
 
You are correct in your assumption that this time around we're focused on gameplay. That doesn't mean, however, that we are ignoring the miniature quality. 
Of course, the detail level will not be as high as it was with the 70mm models, however, we are partnered with the same production company as the one used by CoolMiniOrNot to release their boardgames. We expect to get great quality models.
 
We will reveal photos of actual master models as soon as we will get our hands on them, so do stay for the updates. I hope you will be pleasently surprised in this regard.
 
Feel free to ask me any questions.
 
Cheers!

Would it be possible to see pictures of the actual *production miniatures*, too? It is a common fact that the master sculpts have a higher quality than what production miniatures get, especially if they are being cast in plastic, for example, as in worst cases there can be loss of details, round edges, shrinkage, etc.

What I can say now is that we won't 'hide' anything from you. Any and all information on the sculpts and actual production that we will receive from the manufacturing company, we will share.

 

I would like to add that though we are a new boardgaming company, the LUDO FACT, who are producing the models are not. They are an experienced player with reputation and are very much interested in maintaining this reputation, so we do not expect any shortcommings in this regard.

 

Please visit our campaign page - there's a post by the LUDO FACT representative in there. I hope it will clear most of your concerns about the production quality.

Thankyou for your response Arty :). I'm afraid, the way my finances are this month, I'll have to wait 'til later before I can judge if I can afford to invest this time 'round. I'm not expecting the same amount of detail as was on the larger sculpts. I'm more concerned about how much the style will have changed.

The main concept artist worked on both projects. We haven't changed the style much, we've tried to raise the quality bar though. And we surely aren't aiming for 'cartoony' look. My own preferences match yours in this regard. :)

      Another “large collection of miniatures” kickstarters, reminiscent of the recent Blacklist Games Fantasy kickstarters.

      I am tempted, even though it covers a lot of things we already have.

      Pixies, Wyrms, Demonicity – Three Mini Role-Playing Games
       
      Three ready-for-adventure mini-game boxed sets for your RPG game night, featuring the Tri-Stat System used in BESM Fourth Edition RPG.
       

       
      If you're looking for role-playing games that are concise enough to crack open and start playing right away, yet sufficiently robust and evocative to support longer campaign play as well, you've come to the right place.
       
       
      Welcome to the Kickstarter for the first three Tri-Stat System Mini-Game Boxed Sets – a new line of compact and complete role-playing adventure games that are compatible with Dyskami Publishing's flagship BESM Fourth Edition anime and manga RPG. Tri-Stat System creator Mark MacKinnon has distilled and customised the complete system into distinct streamlined versions for each of the three adventure games – targeting their specific genres and background settings in easy-to-understand boxed sets.
       
      Pixies, Wyrms, and Demonicity – it's time for your next great role-playing adventure!
       

       
      Pixies, Wyrms, and Demonicity – These boxed set RPGs are games of adventure, exploration, battle, heroism, romance, and imagination. Yet unlike in a traditional board game, the possibilities for exploration and action in these role-playing game are endless.
       
      Each of the three role-playing adventure games contains the following components:
       
      a 32-page full-colour rulebook that gives your group everything you need to play, with sections on character abilities, magical spells/paranormal powers, weapons and equipment, enemy encounters, items and equipment, and guidelines for integrating the Tri-Stat System game with the compatible BESM Fourth Edition RPG
      6 brief story scenarios so you can start playing adventures right away
      6 pre-generated player character sheet handouts, with game stats and illustration
      4 custom-etched dice specific to that boxed set
       
      You can pledge for one, two, or all three of these boxed sets during the Kickstarter.
       
      ...
       
      I know know nothing about these creators or the system, but I decided to back for Pixies entirely because of that picture of the corgi. 👀
