Legends of Signum

Recommended Posts

<<<MOD EDIT>>>
Kickstarter is now Live:

 

 

 

Legends of Signum is a 2 players fantasy world wargame, where players will face off against each other in the ruthless battles with help of the summoned characters and creatures.
Each new game is unique as the player will have an ability to counter his opponents tactics with a help of highly variable decks, which player can assemble before the match.
While the heroes busy fighting one another out on the battlefield, their loyal city dwellers are busy constructing new buildings that unlock new spells, abilities, and characters to aid their heroes in the victory.
What also makes Legends of Signum highly unique in and of itself is that we combined best of both card and miniature wargame worlds into one highly immersive gameplay experience.
From the very start, we set out to create a beginner-friendly game and so in the process of developing the game we did our best in avoiding complicated game mechanics that you would normally expect in a miniature wargame, yet still gave players vast variety of tactical options.
 

Legends of Signum is a unique combination of a miniatures wargame and a card game. Players control units of creatures lead by mighty heroes and build structures that allow more characters, relics and magic spells to be used on the battlefield. In Legends of Signum you devise your own winning strategy by creating an exclusive deck of cards and collection of miniatures.

Legends of Signum is a game for two, where each player controls a hero and a group of characters and builds up their capital city. Initially only the hero figures are present on the battlefield, but as the game progresses, additional characters can be brought in by building the necessary structures. Victory is achieved by either destroying the opponent or bringing your capital city to prosperity. Duration of one game is about 30 to 90 minutes.

 

These are the guys who run the Cadwallon Shop. They used to sell Confrontation recasts. They have stopped as discussed in the Confrontation Resurrection kickstarter thread. Legends of Signum are their own sculpts and their own game. The pictures are of stuff already available and I am not sure if they will be included in the kickstarter. I posted them so you can get an idea of what will be offered.

Legends of Signum has very nice models.  Very detailed resin models, and I've been very satisfied with the quality of the casts.

 

I will certainly look at this Kickstarter, but I'm curious as to what they will offer.  All the of models pictured above are already available retail on their site.

The current models are available on two different sites.  The Cadwallon site, and another called SignumGame.  Both appear to be out of the Ukraine, but not sure if they are the same people.

Yeah its the same guys. I am not sure but my theory is they are trying to distance themselves from the old name where they sold the confrontation stuff.

 

I have 2 of their larger scale female werewolves. They are the first 4 pics in my female werewolf thread. the first one came with wings but I did not use the wings.

I have bought several, but have not painted any.  My favorites so far are Pontifex Conrad and Vadoma the Prophetess

Intriguing.  Can't wait to see how things come up with this one, although wallet is so afraid it's trying to hide... 

 

As for the examples posted fro murr enter ones, that plague doctor is epic, as is that female werewolf....

I've wanted some of these since he started but I refused to go through Cadwallion's site since he sold me a recast as an original.. definitely worth eyeing

Yeah, nice stuff.  And the game kind of sounds like a computer game.  Build this...now this unit becomes available.  Could definitely be interesting.

Amusingly I came into this thread to purvey the same information about these being Cadwallaon (who used to recast Confrontation stuff). I was contemplating placing an order for a few of these on the Cadwallon site but they've gone really quiet since having to pull all the Confrontation stuff. No updates for months. When I saw the Legends of Signum website I considered ordering there. I strongly suspect this is going to be like Maelstrom Games selling their own Mierce Miniatures range to themselves for a nomimal small fee so it would be a legally separate entity and would not be liable when Maelstrom went bust. Seriously. That's what they did. It's pretty reprehensible really because, as Maelstrom, they were infamous for never paying their suppliers & importers.

 

So while I suspect this might be another rebranding exorcise... these are some nice figures. The kickstarter has to be for a game because the figures are already for sale (so they couldn't do a project for them). On the Cadwallon site there are Confrontation stat cards for a few of these. Not all, 'though.

 

You can actually find some nicer painted pictures on the Cadwallon site (although some might be computer renders and not actual paint jobs). Here's Liobrenda without that nasty hole in the top of her head.

So, the banner that said April 24th is gone. Wonder if the Kickstarter was postponed or cancelled? The Cadwallon sute also now says that they are only a distributor for Legends of Signum.

      Have to say I’m quite liking some of these halflings:
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2052977442/halflings-and-fantasy-friends?ref=project_build#
       
      Just a few pics of some of the minis and concepts. A lot more are on the kickstarter site.
      Curiously, no women folk though.

      This is a great set of pewter miniature witches that fit well in any 28mm heroic to 32mm fantasy miniature range. The witches are done in a pin up style with plenty of personality, and are ready cast their spells and curses on the gaming table. 
        As soon as the campaign ends production and delivery of the miniatures will commence. The goal is to have the miniatures in your hands within a month of the campaign ending.
      Picture is to show witch miniature scale comparison between two REAPER miniatures. Risks and challenges
      Little risk other than small mail delivery delays from the postal services. The miniatures are ready to be cast.

      Corvus Corax Miniatures is a small hobby project created in 2013. Since then, three projects have successfully funded on Kickstarter and all have been fully delivered on time without any delays. The feedback from the backers have only been positive. Thanks to the support through Kickstarter, 17 miniatures have been made available.

      The goal of this project is to raise funds for the production a total of four (4) miniatures for the Clansmen of Caer Loch. The miniatures will be cast in high quality, non-toxic resin. The scale of the miniatures is 35mm (measuring to the eyes in a standing, straight pose, although some characters may be slightly larger because they are supposed to be large characters).









      You can also pick up the other Corvus Corax minis from previous projects as add ons


      I've backed the previous projects and been very happy with the results

      Preview page up. Launches on the 20th. I always need more Undead, so this is probably an auto-buy. Anyone have experience with Fireforge? The humans look overly modular to me (but cool), but the Undead line looks great!
