Katai The Chinese Army Kensei Kickstarter

Recommended Posts

I remember their Japanese army KS, there was a ton of choice with great variety. Back then, I went mostly for the singles as they were more PC types instead of NPC grunts.

I have backed two earlier KS, The Undead Samurai and the Wako vs Namban ( Japanese Pirates agains Conquistadores)

I went heavy for the Conquistadores then for my Lost World. The Undead are for my Nippon project.

 

I pledged for 1$ now to be able to access the pledge manager later.

I only want a few characters from the add ons.

Somewhat tempted to get these guys to be LotR Easterlings.  Anyone know of some scale shots with other ranges?

 

Not that I need a bigger backlog of LotR armies.

The Katai will be the same scale as the Kensei and Kensei Undead in this pic.

Glitterwolf (or anyone else),

 

Considering upgrading. How have you found the quality on these vs (day) Reaper. And have they been on time (at least in KS terms)? They seem a little disorganized. 

 

Thanks!

I have backed two Kickstarters from these guys before.

They deliver!

 

I have found them to be good at communication and they fulfilled pretty much on schedule.

 

As for quality, I found them pretty good.

These are metal miniatures, good detail, a tad thinner/leaner maybe than Reaper but they still work well together.

 

Assembly can be a bit more of a pain with some minis.

The Conquistadore riders in particalur were difficult to assemble, they reminded me a bit of the early metal Rackham /Confrontation minis.

But they look good when painted and are worth it.

 

Here are some things from them I painted.

As for Scale comparison:

 

The Dog is from Games Workshop

The Female Monk is from Oathsworn

The Dragon and Ki'rinn are older Ral Partha

The Samurai, Wizard and Oni are from Clan Wars ( Target Games)

And the Demoness from Kensei is on the far left in front.

Thanks for the info! And strong work on the painting. 

 

Good to know they look ok alongside Reaper. Obviously 28mm means different things to different companies.

 

Are there any specific figures besides the conquistadors that you really like? And any thoughts on the game system?

I do not game, I paint for fun and display so I can't say much about that.

 

As for the minis,

I backed before and I have like 80% of their Undead Samurai range, several of the living ones and a large army of Conquistadores.

Looking forward to receive the Katai ones and the rest that I chose.

 

I love the sculpts, some can be a pain to assemble though.

If you scroll further up this thread you can see another scale comparison, not sure if you saw that already.

 

If you're in doubt about the quality, just buy one mini to see if you like it.

      About
        Tabletop RPG gaming saved my life during a time when I was really struggling. The act of a scheduled activity where I would go have fun with friends on a regular basis helped me overcome my depression. It helped me build stronger connections with friends, create a sense of community, and, as cheesy as it sounds, gave me somewhere to belong. As a way to contribute back to the fandom creatively, I started Dispel Dice. 
      Since then, it’s grown more than I could have possibly imagined in a short period of time. I want to share Dispel Dice with the world, and to do that, I need to accelerate production so it can be sustainable long-term.
      Dispel Dice stands in solidarity with Kickstarter United.
        To promote our debut, we have some Day One Pledge Bonuses available until tomorrow morning! They will be added to your pledge, free of charge, if you pledge within the first 24 hours. Day One Pledge Bonuses stack on top of the general Kickstarter bonuses. All orders placed up until 11/7, 9:00AM PST will qualify for a Day One Pledge Bonus, but after that, the offer expires!
      The pin may still be ordered during and after the campaign, but the D20 is exclusive to Day 1 pledgers. If you pledge 3 sets or MORE, you will receive the Merlot D20. 
          PRICES DO NOT INCLUDE SHIPPING OR FEES IMPOSED BY YOUR COUNTRY. SHIPPING WILL BE CHARGED ON TOP OF YOUR ORDER AFTER THE KICKSTARTER CONCLUDES VIA BACKERKIT. VAT TAXES, IMPORT FEES, CUSTOMS FEES, & DUTIES ARE NOT INCLUDED.

      Hour of Need is a cooperative game of comic book action inspired by the costumed heroes that many of us grew up with. Using the Modular Deck System (MDS), also featured in Street Masters, Brook City, and Altar Quest, the game features incredibly modular gameplay using several different types of decks. Hero decks, villain decks, and issue decks can all be mixed and matched to create countless combinations of unique play experiences.
      Miniatures
      Each hero in Hour of Need is represented by a highly-detailed miniature, as well as each villain and their associated lackeys.
      Hero Decks
      Each hero in Hour of Need is defined by their unique deck of cards, representing their crime-fighting abilities. While each hero has their own playstyle, all hero decks share something in common in the form of heroic feats which make certain cards multi-purpose—do you want to play a card for its ability, or keep it in your hand to use its “toughness” heroic feat icon to protect yourself from damage? Managing your hand is crucial in avoiding crises!
      Villain Decks
      Villain decks are the primary opposition in Hour of Need. During the villain turn, each player draws a villain card and resolves its icons—these will spawn minions in scheme panels, trigger special villain abilities, or spawn perils & lackeys on the map. Additionally, villain cards feature “Showdown” effects that are resolved whenever a villain is attacked by a hero—if the heroes can first reveal the villain!
      Issue Decks and Issue Boards
      Like any good comic book series, Hour of Need tells its stories through issues—issue decks, in this case. Each issue deck is accompanied by an issue board that sets the scene for the conflict. The issue deck details the overall story and special rules for the game. Whether the heroes are attempting to thwart a bank robbery or prevent advanced weaponry from being stolen, the issue deck will provide the villain with their overall goal, which the heroes must prevent in order to win!
      Issue Guides
      The issue guide provides all the narrative and rules clarifications for each issue in the game. Players can choose to play a more story-based experience by reading each story point as its cue effects are triggered.
      Hero Dice
      Heroes must fight and solve their way through their enemies’ various machinations. Hero dice are used to resolve each fight and solve action, while focus tokens are used to mitigate these rolls.
      Tokens
      Tokens are used to track various game elements, such as how much damage a character has suffered, how much justice has been dealt to a problem, as well as where minions and bystanders appear on the board. Additionally, each issue introduces unique tokens to add another level of thematic immersion.
