Relic Knights 2nd Edition

Recommended Posts

So the difference between the questing knight and the relic knight pledge appears to be the void break expansion rulebook, does anyone know what is in the book?  More than anything I just think the models look really cool so I'm not sure if I would need the book.

The Void Break book will primarily contain more fluff.  The story lines that were started in the main book (Black Diamond attack on Doctrine, Malaneach(sp?) invasion, etc), as well as blurbs about the new characters and units.  There may also be a hobby section, etc.  Although it will contain rules for models not found in the 2.0 rulebook, you'll have cards for those models so you don't necessarily need the book.  The only exception might be for new unit types or keywords, like Avatar.

 

If you only care about models: get questing knight

If you like fluff: get relic knight

If you're a gamer: either is probably fine

Screw it, I'm glad to see Sodapop Miniatures putting out an actual miniatures game as opposed to yet another board game with miniatures.  Relic Knights has never been my favorite as a gaming line (a bit too "bunch of random stuff" to feel like a coherent game), but who needs a reason to paint minis.

 

I don't think I'll go all in though, probably just Enforcers squad, Diamond Corps squad, and a few other items.

So, I am out (at least for now). I went through all my Relic knights 1st edition stuff. I got Noh, Circi speed circuit and Black Diamond, as well as some Void and Prism stuff. I actually got 2X Black Diamond and 3X Noh stuff... All great stuff. But.... I have not touched any of it since assembling when I first got it... So I really cant justify getting any more. I may look for some of the core box minis (Bang Bang and the Starburst guys...) and may cave again if the unlocks get better or are more aligned with my tastes... but for now... No, no for now.

To be fair, I don't think it is often reasonable to go "all in" on any tabletop minis game.  Prices get unreasonable much faster than with a non-Kingdom Death board game.

 

 

I don't know if this was mentioned before- but the Upgrade deck is being very inclusive- they're going to have the Penny Arcade characters and the Kingdom Death crossovers as well as all the promo RK minis (I think this means that we'll have rules for the Candy with the huge cannon.  The pinata list gets larger).

There are a couple minis I want that are only part of the new Cadres and not for individual purchase.. ah well.. that might keep me from pledging completely..

      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.

      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...
