Y�kai Quest by Zenit Miniatures

Recommended Posts

Not sure if I'm funding this, but Zenit miniatures has been in business since 2006 and has been involved with other KS (Kensei Undead, Nemesis, Last Saga). I haven't looked closely at their previous KS, so, if you have any comments, post them. AFAIK, While they've done work with metals, this is their first plastic injection model project. Anyway, they'll have a 24 hour EB on 11/19, starting 15:00 EST, so I thought I'd post. Delete this thread if someone already posted this KS.

 

More info about the game on their FB page: https://www.facebook.com/OficialKensei/

I backed their Nemesis and Kensei kickstarters, both of which were flawless and very generous.

They're one of my favourite companies

After Zenit's last undead kickstarter, I have to admit the last thing I expected was chibis.  But I do like painting chibis.

I like how the stretch goals are grouped into a common theme.  I was very happy with the last batch of Zenit minis from the undead kickstarter, and I've been building a collection of chibis, so this is a natural yes from me.

 

I've read though the kickstarter description a couple times now, but I'm not finding any statement on how big the miniatures are.  In the comments I requested a size comparison to other chibi ranges, although I'd be happy with a simple statement saying something like "the target size is similar to (whatever) mini range".

Yeah I like that update.  There were a number of us pestering them for scale.   :;):

I'll check SDE minis when I get home, although I'm more concerned with Impact's Japanese folklore chibis and Sodapop's Ninja All-stars as they are a natural fit with these.

Wish I liked chibis, but I don't.  I'll pass.  Well, maybe if there was some use with the Siege of the Citadel ones (which I also don't intend to add - but would consider).

Nobue unlocked! 

 

Looks like they're going with the SG model of unlocking the mini's in an expansion, then announcing that an expansion has been unlocked. 

 

The Mystic Forest Expansion

 

"When 150k Stretch Goal is unlocked, the Mystic Forest expansion will be completed! Then, we will add a new box, similar to the Oni Invasion Expansion Box: The Mystic Forest Expansion Box. This expansion box will contain:

  • Kami of the Forest (Boss) x1
  • Itachi sama (Boss) x1
  • Dark Champion Mystic Forest x1
  • Spirit Forest x4
  • Forest Guardian x2
  • Tokon x8
  • Kamaitachi x8
  • Midori (Hero) x1
  • Nobuo (Hero) x1
  • Respawn cards
  • Item cards
  • Double-sided gameboards x2
  • The Mystic Forest Adventure Book x1

Beta rules are now available for download in update 11.

 

I hate to say it, but the rules look too simple for my tastes (or I've played way too many battle games).  Hopefully the items and ability cards add enough complexity and variety to spice things up.

      About

Enter a world where Dwarves and Orcs fly giant creatures and arm them with bombs and machine guns to continue their millennia long struggles... Come fight in the skies of Spitfyre and see if you can reign supreme over The Land!
      Spitfyre is a fun 'Historo-Fantasy' miniature aerial wargame in which 10mm scale miniatures are used to depict the everyday struggles of standard fantasy races such as Orcs and Dwarves fight out battles with 20th century weaponry.
      We are keeping this Kickstarter very simple with three basic pledge levels. The key one is 'Pilot' where pledgers will receive a discounted copy of the core game and ALL stretch goals added in FREE of charge.
      THE TARGET - £1000
      Spitfyre - the core game The target goal is to produce the core game which will include the rulebook, a flight of three 10mm scale resin Orc Spitfyre wyverns, a flight of four 10mm scale polyurethane resin Dwarf War-Eagles and seven flying bases.
      STRETCH GOAL I - £1500
      If we reach Stretch Goal I, all Pilot backers will have one polyurethane resin 10mm scale Dwarf KampfGrier 87 vulture dive bomber and flying base added to their pledge for free and the rules will be extended to include dive bombing.
       More Stretch Goals to come...

      Well, the HeroQuest Kickstarter  crowdfunding is in its final few hours - I ended up being pushed over the event horizon by my girlfriend, and went in for the 110 Euro pledge.
       
      HeroQuest was her introduction to fantasy gaming - I brought my old, battered, but much loved original copies over to her mum's house for Thanksgiving.
       
      She still loves that game.
       
      And... there are some elements that I am seeing that I really like - the mummies look like dried cadavers instead of Egyptian mummies, and the terrain looks fantastic.
       
      Hopefully.... I will be able to drag the Anniversary edition to her mum's for next Christmas.
