Purgatory

Recommended Posts

Hi there fellow gamer's and painters!

 

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce the Purgatory kickstarter that goes live on the 10th October 2016. You can preview the project here: https://goo.gl/g73jPiwhich will give you a flavour of what is to come.

 

In April we went to Salute and we took with us this artbook:

https://goo.gl/5lT8Lc

 

You can find pictures of at least 5 of the starting factions alongside information on the background and the history of some of the characters themselves.

 

If you like what you see you can follow us on twitter @purgatoryminis or you can follow our facebook page: www.facebook.com/purgatoryminiatures along with the other 1600+ followers we are lucky to have. We have a website: www.purgatory-miniatures.co.uk that gives you more information on the game and the world as well as having a shop where you can pick up models like Erishkigal below.

 

You can see that we have some 'pedigree' in delivering highly detailed multi part resin models that are at 32mm scale. We have 7 models now released and the kickstarter bring the possibility of another 30 or more models that are all interchangeable to give you a dynamic and long lasting game.

 

The pledges feature a number of different levels, where the more you spend the greater the value. The £90 set for example, includes 15 models, all coming with a unique insert for their base. 15 stat cards, 15 San Ban cards, unique art, dice, hard copy rulebook and 60 Gift of the Gods cards. It really is packed with value.

 

So if you like the look of Purgatory, come on over and support the project as we ramp up for the War in Heaven!

 

Thanks

Purgatory is a new skirmish table top game that can be played by two or more players. It combines a fresh, modern gaming experience alongside a range of high quality 32mm scale miniatures for you to play with, that have been created by some of the best sculptors in Europe.

It is the Age of Purgatory. Our planet is aflame, shattered and broken by the devastating after effects of the War for Heaven. Led by Satan, Angels that once stood guardian over our realm use our world as a battleground where titanic energies and colossal beings wield powers far beyond our comprehension, murdering and enslaving humans by the million. Mankind teeters on the edge of obliteration, but there is hope. Those still loyal to the Gods have been dispatched to right the terrible wrong of their fallen kin.  

Purgatory has a rich background, steeped in history, alongside a storyline with sub plots that will have you hooked. It has a wealth of diverse and unique characters, each with their own identity, allowing you to connect emotionally and visually. In Purgatory you have the potential for synergy and dynamism as you are able to mix and match characters to create your own unique collection of individuals as you immerse yourself in scenarios and battles set in a colourful, expanding Ultraverse.

Are you ready to dive into a game that will bring old friends and new together across the table top battlefield? In a world that is underpinned by honest humour and where exciting battles and closely fought encounters will create memories for years to come? If you are, then tailor your force to your unique style of play, supported by Gifts from the Gods, and prepare to face the greatest period of adversity mankind has ever encountered.

All that remains now is to choose a side and join the War for Heaven!

Purgatory is a skirmish game that allows you to play different size games against friends using a points-based system. You are not shackled to specific races or ranges as in Purgatory you can build your faction from scratch either, for alignment with your host or as a group of mercenaries.  

The game works by players fielding their forces and alternating activations during a game turn to complete the scenario or mission being played out. Each activation allows players to use abilities (Melee, Ranged, Movement or other) to secure victory for their side. Each character comes with a stat card that shows the controlling player how they are used.  

The world of Purgatory combines old established mechanics with new and realistic takes on table-top gaming using a D6 system. However, you also have the ability to build card decks using Gift of the Gods cards which can have an effect in game, for both sides. To explain all of the rules would require us to include the rulebook on this page, which is unfortunately not something we can do. However, since releasing an initial BETA rules pack the game has developed significantly, and we have made some instructive videos that explain how some of the up-to-date core mechanics work in the game so that you can familiarise yourself with the easy, fluid mechanisms within our world.

You can find these in the section 'Videos and Reviews' below.

I'm in too.

 

I did a double take when I saw August 2017 as a delivery date. I thought to myself 'that's years away'. Is it really October 2016?

This has to be one of the oddest collection of minis I've seen for a game.

Interesting. But odd.

Looking a bit precarious....... here's the update

 

 

Good Evening Backers

The project seems would appear to be in decline. We have tried a number of things to try and arrest this and whilst we appreciate the large projects out there at the moment, we are at a loss to understand why people are leaving the project. 

When we created the project the funding total of £10,500 was created and is the actual cost to deliver the main items in the project itself. Unfortunately for a reason that we cannot fathom and are seeking guidance on, the KS itself would not allow us to submit without including postage. By including postage into the funding total, at the time of writing, in essence we only sit at £1,600 above funding when you take the cost of shipping into consideration. 

So we asked our play testing group for thoughts, one most prominent in these thoughts were that people wanted to see some of the models from the other factions. This is the difficult part, as we were at one stage £530 from unlocking a full faction. Other items were included in this discussion and we have taken all of these on board. 

We have now decided to change the stretch goals to reflect the models that our supporters told us that you wanted to see. Godmother, Faith, Toenan and the Bride. We have also updated our page to show these stretch goals but not blacked out, they are clear so that you can see the models you get and we are sure you will agree that the end product to yet has been in the likeness of the art.

These stretch goals are shown below.

We should however be honest, out title alludes to this being our final roll of the dice. If Purgatory slips beneath £13,500 total, we will have to unfortunately cancel the project. We want to exist going forward and we don't want to be in a position of funding and delaying your models and the game as a result of insufficient funds. We said in our campaign, that getting the models to you was of primary importance and that still remains. 

We also are telling you this because we said communication was fundamental to us and to you. 

What happens if we cancel? 

We will try and go again, though when we can do that will very much depend on a number of different things and anyone who pledges this time around and returns will be rewarded with a returning gift. But let's not talk about that now. Instead, let's look at the fantastic art below and increase those pledges so that these characters can come to life!

It's a real shame that it looks like people are pulling money early now it's looking like the gangbangers are unlikely to unlock since it's giving an impression that the KS is failing (when the backer number is pretty solid)

 

let it ride until the last day or two and the KS is much more likely to come back to life and succeed (that's what i'm doing and crossing my fingers that I can keep it there)

Dear Backer, 

Thank you for your continued support. As we move into the end game now we want to really have last push for Purgatory so we are ramping things up to give you the most amount of value. 

In the last week, anybody increasing their pledge will receive a KS exclusive set of Halloween Gift of the Gods cards, these cards will come with all pledges over £10.

In addition, and here is the big one. We want to get these models unlocked so that you can get a hold of the Gangbangers and the models that currently sit at the stretch goal targets. Our commitment to that is that if you back to the level "You want it all" you will receive every single model we unlock in the last week for FREE.

The target is £22k where the Gangbangers will unlock in their entirety. As tow of their number are on route to this goal, if the target is reached of £22k then we will replace Godmother and Toenan with Slayer and Judas so that more models are realised. 

If we can get to that target for £110 plus shipping you will be able to get nearly 30 high quality resin models for your money, alongside the game rules and everything you need to play a game of Purgatory!

It's the last week and we want to make the project push forward so what better way than to give you the ability to gain more value. So just to reiterate, if we get to £15.3k, Godmother is yours for FREE!

All the very best

Team Purgatory

Wait, are they basically saying if they hit 22k they'll change which stretch goals had been reached before that? Or is 22k some magic number where they'll suddenly be able to get molds for half a dozen extra figs? or...

 

They've finally gotten me to consider pulling out. It's really starting to feel like the funding goal was to low, the stretch goals were planned funding, and they might have a hard time actually fulfilling.

I more think it is a matter of that they had hoped for more backers, and they are now trying to scramble to give more value to bring more people in.

      If anybody here loves cavern terrain and missed DF's first cavern KS KS2, this spring/summer around June DF will have KS6. The theme of KS6 will be Return to the Caverns and should be great fun for those who took part in KS2 or those who are new to DF.

      DF had this to say and showed the below teaser pics

      We're doing for Caverns what Dungeon of Doom did for Dungeons. A whole new batch of fun pieces to enhance your existing collection, but also completely stand-alone.

      Some of the key features:
      New Core Shapes (diagonal wall, convex curves, 1" pieces, etc)
      Passages
      Elevation (with stuff that's impossible on graph paper...)
      Negative Space pieces (and new Terrain Trays)
      Flashy Pieces (Magnets & LEDs)
      Large pieces (4x4 and larger)

      This looks like a very interesting board game with lots of new, fresh ideas and cool artwork (and nice minis - there is even a pledge level for just the minis: around 15 of them for $20 plus shipping):
       
      About this project
       

      It's a harsh but lucrative business being a mercenary out on the edge of civilization. You must explore the harsh wilderness and engage in deep tactical combat, where the decisions you make have an impact not only on your own character, but also the world around you.

      Gloomhaven is cooperative game of card-driven combat set in a persistent fantasy campaign which will change and grow as you play the game.
      There is always more to unlock and explore in the world of Gloomhaven.

      If you missed the first Gloomhaven Kickstarter (and retail sold out quickly) here is your chance. I backed that game the first time around and could not be happier with the results. Warning ... that box is heavy ...
