Bloodborne : 24 hour EB

Recommended Posts

I'm interested because of its card-based game system, which includes upgrading your character, and custom weapons.

Scroll down to the Rulebook section, for the overviews of the game!

 

So far, including the unlocks, the game has 50+ miniatures.

Huh, I was hoping they'd have more stuff from the main story and expansion rather than the Chalice Dungeon heavy focus they have so far.  But it is still quite early.

Its a fast paced souls-like (made by the same people) set in an ultra-gothic victorian city, starting with a lycanthrope theme and blending into lovecraftian nightmare as the story progresses.

I've backed for the EB, but not sure I'll keep it.  The card-based system is interesting though.  Will see where this goes.

Base pledge has about 85 miniatures, most of them large sized for your nightmare fuel needs.

Also, first expansion announced. Kinda pricey compared to the base pledge.

Didn't know Bloodborne had mosh pits.

Typically IF expansions make it to retail they'll be cheaper than KS with CMON project

 

but it's a gamble as if not enough people bit during the KS they may decide not to go to retail with it at all  (especially if you're outside the US where even if they do go to retail you may not be able to get hold of them)

That one is marked KS exclusive, so not much of a chance it will be cheap at retail.

You play a "hunter" in a world that's dark gothic horror mixed with lovecraft.. Blood can be used to make powerful healing medicines.. and many people have become afflicted with blood diseases that transform them into Beasts, which are the creatures you're hunting..

 

There's a lot of exploration and retreading areas, trying to find the best way to survive your way through them.. In souls games, if you kill a friendly NPC, they tend to stay dead.. same with bosses.. Normal monsters revive themselves every time you stop at a resting point (usually marked by lamps) and recover your health.. You there's a leveling system and you gain experience points for killing monsters.. The combat can be difficult at times, you can use bells to summon other players to help you fight though..  (I think this comes at a risk of allowing hostile players entering your world to fight you.. it's been a while so I might be mistaken on that..)

Interesting that this property from From Software is not being done by the Dark Souls peeps... maybe it was cause the DS boardgame is STILL trying to finish up. :) CMON is a better move. :D

I don't mind if it takes me three years to complete a video game. I mind if it takes three years to *get* a boardgame! :lol:

 

Bloodborne is a Japanese take on Gothic horror (and, as Dwapook said, Lovecraft), so it's not surprising that the monsters and therefore the miniatures are... different. ^_^

 

Like... the game has "messengers" who are small diminutive little guys who deliver stuff. Maybe in another videogame, they'd look like familiars, or faceless constructs. But in Bloodborne?

Well, at least you can hide their faces.

And, hey, who doesn't want to look pretty every once in awhile.

I picked up the Bones Dreadmere expansion, so these BB miniatures would fit into the more nightmarish parts of that region.

 

Also, BB has a card-driven combat system that's a change from the usual dice mechanics in dungeoncrawlers and miniatures games.

It's because of the KS exclusive expansions that I dropped.  In my opinion those expansions are not good value.  At $25 each I would think they are reasonable, but certainly not at $40.  And I actually feel fine with that decision.  Very sorry that I missed Carnival Zombie though.

      Seems to be a good time for 3D printers (and a bad one for wallets).

      Miniatures based on the art from the Fighting Fantasy books. 
      I was an avid fan of the books growing up so I'm definitely in
       





       
      WHEN IS THE KICKSTARTER?
      Our kickstarter release will go live approximately October 16th. It will feature all of the new models and the updated versions of some models with plenty of extras. If you can't attend FFF3 or don't get exactly what you want, then join us on Kickstarter and check out what's on offer.

      WHATS BEING ADDED TO THE RANGE?
      The 10 additional models will be gradually revealed on here and social media in the build up to the kickstarter release. Why not generate a little hype! 

      HOW WILL I KNOW WHEN ITS LIVE?
      If you sign up to our newsletter via www.atlantisminiatures.com, email notifications will be sent during the build up and once we are live.

      WILL THERE BE AN EARLY BIRD OFFER?
      This is something we have always struggled to get right. This time we will have a first 48 hour discount on some of the rewards options.
      There will be no super early bird discounts on this release.

      WHAT ABOUT STRETCH GOALS?
      There will be some stretch goal additions to the Collectors options. We will not be using miniatures as stretch goals in this release. Instead, we have tried to get the prices as generous as possible on box offers. It doesn't feel right to separate some of the release as freebies. Each character from the franchise deserve their own spot in the box, which is why we have priced accordingly on the box offers.
