About this project

Nord Games is proud to announce a new line of miniature terrain sets designed for tabletop RPGs and war games. Using assets from Hirst Arts, we are creating a range of master molds to cast solid plaster pieces. This means the final product is far more durable than an assembled piece which has been glued together.  

We are using Merlin's Magic plaster in order to achieve a top quality product while still keeping prices low when compared to similar resin products. Both painted and unpainted sets are available, as well as add ons and Kickstarter exclusive models which will be unlocked through stretch goals. Thank you for checking out the project, please share it with your friends and, as always, happy gaming!

First Backed, First Fulfilled

Fulfillment will begin shortly after the Kickstarter ends. We put a delivery date of 12 months out just in case we end up with a ridiculously high number of backers. We will be shipping out rewards according to the number at which you backed this project. This means the very first order to ship out will be going to backer #1. The first shipments will begin in December 2017which means many of you will get your rewards in time for Christmas! Fulfillment will take several months depending on how many backers we get. If we reach enough funding to justify hiring more people in order to keep up with deliveries, we will do so.

What Is Hirst Arts?

Hirst Arts has been designing and manufacturing molds for creating fantasy, modern, and sci-fi themed terrain for nearly 20 years! Hirst Arts has allowed Nord Games to license the designs of their molds in order to mass produce miniature terrain pieces for all to enjoy.

All of the pieces available through this Kickstarter campaign have been created by Nord Games using the Hirst Arts building blocks. A rubber mold has been made of these assembled pieces, and the final products are solid plaster cast from the rubber molds. This makes them incredibly strong and durable while still retaining all of the fine detail in the Hirst Arts molds. Find out more about Hirst Arts here.

What Are They Made Of?

Merlin's Magic Plaster is an industry standard, and our plaster of choice for this project. It is not only extremely hard when cured, but is available in our chosen color (medium gray). It is also designed to flow well into rubber molds and prevent bubbles and other imperfections with the final product. This speeds up the production process on our end.

Why Plaster Instead Of Resin? 

There are four reasons for we've chosen to use plaster instead of resin:

  • Feel - the plaster has a more stone-like feel to it.
  • Strength - the plaster has a higher tensile strength than resin, making these pieces more durable and less fragile.
  • Paint-ability - the unpainted pieces come in a medium gray right out of the box and are very simple to paint. First give them a wash of a dark brown or other earth tone, then just dry brush some light gray, light brown, or even white over the stonework and you'll really see the detail pop!
  • Price - plaster is much less expensive than resin which is why our prices are so low compared to similar products on the market.

      Story
      Texts from here will be a mix between Italian and English language, they will be translated from the next week until the KS launch. The texts are subject to change, only the final page will be considered correct. 
      Let yourself be captivated by the magical atmosphere of Nova Aetas! 
      Set in the Italian Renaissance, this game will guide you through a fantastic, mythical campaign based upon the historic events of the war between Rome and Venice in the early 1500s.
      Nova Aetas: Renaissance is a reimplementation of the original game founded on KS in January 2016.  This new, improved version, is born from the experience gained during these years and will give you an even deeper experience by immersing  you and your group in a charming and mysterious Italy, full of historical characters such as Leonardo da Vinci, Caterina Sforza, and many others – both real and imaginary.
        Soon we will show all the remaining models and components.

      Those who know me well generally know what a massive Darkest Dungeon fan I am so I've been very good to not post about this one yet. I've been holding off 'til nearer release date to avoid putting a thread up too early. There is going to be a kickstarter for a Darkest Dungeon boardgame. This makes me happy. It will have miniatures! This makes my heart sing with Joy. It's going to be by Mythic Games. This makes me somewhat concerned. I've heard horror stories about their rulebooks needing updates and finally becoming playable  a year or two after release (or even in a second crowdfunding campaign if it's their Joan of Arc game).
       
      That being said it will have gorgeous miniatures that, while similar to many of the unofficial Darkest Dungeon miniatures, knock then pants off many of them. I'll probably be backing this for the figures alone but I appreciate any concerns that people might have.
       
      They claim they're looking to launch some time in late October or early November.
       

       

       
      There are a few more pictures and a handful of videos doing the rounds at the moment including two or three gameplay sessions. Here's what I was able to piece together from them.
       
      It’s a campaign game. You don’t play as the Heir. You play as the Heroes. You randomly generate dungeons then head inside making important choices about your resources (food, torches, spades etc). When you meet monsters you lay out a mini dungeon board and fight it out.
      Heroes and enemies occupy four positions. Attacker, Defender, Ranged and Support. The skills you can use are based on the position you’re in. The battles have a four round limit so they don’t drag on too long. Take too long and you have to retreat back into the corridor. Corridor encounters happen. There is a scouting system.
      Every 3 dungeons you have to tackle a boss dungeon. You randomly generate the boss beforehand and he has in town effects and other effects so you really want to get rid of him when the time comes. Boss battles are all or nothing. If you fail a boss battle you don’t retreat. You just loose the entire party.
      After 3 bosses you go into the Darkest Dungeon itself to end the game. So that’s 9 dungeon runs (or 12 depending on if the boss dungeon counts as part of the once every 3 dungeons frequency) then the end game run to complete the entire campaign.
      They currently only plan to have 8 core heroes in the game (you can bet the other 7 or 9 will be stretch goals). When you loose a hero there are two replacement heroes in the stagecoach. Take a new hero. The stagecoach does not appear to generate new heroes beyond these two replacement heroes. If one player’s hero dies and they are unable to obtain a replacement from the stagecoach then you all lose. Game over man. Game over.
      They intend to launch around late October or early November.
      Mythic kickstarter campaign lengths are as follows.
      Time of Legends: Joan of Arc 32 days
      Solomon Kane: 24 days
      Reichbusters 10 days
      Super Fantasy Brawl 8 days
      Time of Legends: Joan of Arc 1.5 15 days
      Enchanters: East Quest 11 days
      Steamwatchers 11 days
      Hel – the Last Saga 14 days
      So we’re probably looking at 8-15 days which is quite a short period to scrounge up cash in.
