The Walking Dead: No Sanctuary kickstarter


Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm pleased to share this awesome kickstarter from Cryptozoic, The Walking Dead: No Sanctuary. It's based off the AMC series The Walking Dead. I apologize I should have posted this sooner, just been very busy. But there are still 5 days left to join, and I think it's totally worth it!

The game design looks intriguing, designed by brothers Adam and Brady Sadler. The figures are exceptional, very finely detailed and sculpted by Stephan. I was really impressed how well they came out.

I was asked to paint some of the masters for Cryptozoic for their booths at San Diego Comic Con and Gen Con 2016. As a huge fan of the series both on AMC and in graphic novel incarnation, this is a really exciting project!

 

Also check it out, this is so cool! The very talented actors Andrew Lincoln (Rick) and Norman Reedus (Daryl), with two of the miniatures I painted! I believe they were gifted the ones with the larger clear bases. How totally awesome of them is that? I can die happy now :)

I posted some photos I took of the miniatures I painted here:

I've got to admit that it's pretty tempting for just the heroes.  So many people have been wanting official TWDs for some time.  

 

Mantic's miniatures just didn't appeal to me.

Have to admit I'm very surprised I hadnt heard a thing about this Kickstarter before now.

Also a bit confused about what one needs to pledge for to get all the character minis and iconic civilians and other minis like the Lori Grimes mini.

Scalewise they are 35mm but I have to say the scale didn't bother me as much as it might some. For example, the priestess from Pathfinder, Alahazra from Reaper, I could see matching sizewise to them. She is smaller than some of the say Klocke figures, but it's not jarring. It is interesting with these figures because of the proportions of their bodies are in scale without exaggerating for emphasis on heads & heads. So the faces take a bit of work, but I have to say the likenesses are really fantastic. I have a feeling that was a big part of the authorizations behind the scenes with this game, getting likenesses approved etc. I think in the comments area the creators posted a similar comparison photo with zombicide figures.

 

Darsc, I wasn't on the marketing end of things and initially I wasn't able to show figures till things became unlocked. So on publicity, I think this ks may have hit some bumps in the road. As to the backing levels, I think it is addressed in the comments area by the creators who recently revamped the tier level. I backed initially at the Early bird comic con tier, but then upgraded to $219 for addon stuff later.

First Anne, thanks for posting about this. Don't think I would have know about it otherwise.

$219 sounds like you went all in for the game expansions. I was interested in minis only but not so much the zombies. Mostly just the Iconic characters. It's confusing as some are shown available as add ons but not all.

Darsc, I asked in the comments area for you, "$1 plus the character add-ons I suppose but that will miss out on the KSE SGs." And also this, "If they looking just for minis of the main characters since zombies can easily be found elsewhere they could do $1 + $32 for survivor packs 1 & 2."

 

The creators recently revamped the tiers so the best place to look would be update #11 where they clarify stuff.

 

Happy to share! :)

You probably haven't heard anything about the game because Cryptozoic ran the KS *very* badly! No marketing of the KS before starting the funding, poor initial value, and they were "putting miniatures back into the box" with their initial SG's. Their current offering adds something like *ten* SG's worth of content, plus an expansion set.

 

The Vision of Lori miniature is only in the Base Game or No Sanctuary tiers, so:

 
Base Set: $75

Exclusive Lori: $12

Ride Daryl: $12

Iconic Civilians: $15

Better Angels: $20

Stuff and Thangs: $25

Survivor Set 2: $16

 

The No Sanctuary Tier ($115 Comicon EB), includes Ride Daryl and Survivor Set 2:

 

No Sanctuary Tier: $115
Exclusive Lori: $12

Iconic Civilians: $15

Better Angels: $20

Stuff and Thangs: $25

 

I'm pretty sure the numbers come out to be about the same, so the actual difference in cost will be for shipping. This may be important for those living outside the US.

 

fwiw, This KS has (gasp) unarmed survivors, which I've had a hard time finding aside from metal miniatures. The All Things Zombie miniatures game calls for unarmed civilians. 

 

EDIT: Dig up a "gory" picture of a mini you painted and post it in the #artweclever Twitter account to unlock a social stretch goal!

 

  • Tanks for the Idea - We know there are artists among you and we want you to share your amazing work with the world. We only need 5 Twitter posts with the hashtag #artweclever to unlock, but they must be truly gorgeous (or gory) pieces (4 to go!)

      "And some good news here. We're preparing the new Kickstarter right now, called "Sitting Folks". Yes, we want to create a lot of miniatures in sitting poses. The launching date is about the middle of November. Yes, we're still painting rewards from the previous campaign, but the new one will not affect the process." -- from the Dwarven Forge Gaming Talk forum!

      Middara - Unintentional Malum: Act 1 (aka. Middara) was a Kickstarter game that one of my friends picked up and brought me (and two other people) in to play on a regular basis.  It was so much fun that, when they re-ran the Kickstarter, one of the other players and I backed it to play with other friends of ours.
       
      Middara is a story based, cooperative dungeon crawl.  Your characters each have a special ability unique to them, but none push you to build your character in a specific way.  All the characters are equally good in any given role.  Another thing I like about the game is there is no classes.  It would probably is smart to stick to certain roles (like offensive magic user and healer), but you can build them out in a bunch of different ways.  
       
      Another cool aspect is that, while you start off with 4 characters, you do not have to stick to them throughout the game.  We tended do, and I think most people will, but if you want to make a drastic change, you can.  And in fact you must bring in different characters occasionally, as the story calls for it.
       
      Our four (starting) heroes, Rook, Nightingale, Zeke and Remi - 

       
      The loyal Rook Lars - 
       
       
      Nightingale Arsen, royal princess and instigator of all troubles (also the best character because I played her) - 
          
       
       
      The also royal Zeke Jeong - 
       
       
      The outsider, Remi Moretti (and her little friend.  Be sure to say "Hello" to him) -

      Story
      Long gone is the time of Dwarves in Midlam, a city built over the ruins of their Middle Home, which lay between the Lost Mountains and the Southern Holds.  The Barons of Midlam have always claimed their city was gifted to them by the dwarves of old, and claim an ancient alliance, although dwarves have rarely been seen in the city, and must register their presence with the Town Council.
      Far to the North, so they say, lies the Lost Mountains, a place of legend and dragons.  It is said that many years ago, a dwarf came to Midlam in secret, hired two guides and headed North, never to be seen again.  There was also rumours that a group of grizzled dwarven mercenaries made the journey, but they too disappeared into folklore.
      Now rumours abound of Dwarven Adventurers, heading North once more, into the perpetual freezing wastes.  The frightened chatter speaks of their desire to rid the Mountains of the orcs and goblins and return the Dwarven King to his throne.  Nobody knows what truly lies North, but people fear the return of the old wars, rampaging dragons and a dark evil that has no name...
       
      Dwarves - A Class of their Own
       
      A set of 12  Male and Female 28m scale Dwarf Miniatures of different Character Classes for all your Fantasy Games.

      I backed their original Mythic Battles: Pantheon. Good miniatures. 
       
      IIRC, Mythic Battles: Pantheon core sets in the KS, and possibly some expansions in the PM. Expansion reprints were difficult because printer required a minimum number, and Monolith wasn't sure how many sets backers would want. Also, let me know how their fulfilment has been going. (Not to be confused with their former partner, Mythic games.)
