Etherfields is a new major miniature Board Game by Awaken Realms. We call this totally different BG experience a Dream Crawler – you will dive into surreal and artistically crafted world and follow one of a kind co-op / solo campaign adventure for 1-4 players. Everything you do will change the strange rhythm of the Etherfields dream world, where even the wildest fantasy is possible.

Gameplay created by the Board Game veteran Michał Oracz (author of This War of Mine: TBG, Neuroshima Hex or The Edge: Dawnfall and many others), will test not only your logical skills but also your intuition, deduction, and emotional intelligence. Develop your character from scratch using advanced deck-building, travel through the dream-world map and delve deeper into chosen locations.

Can anyone comment on the quality of their minis?

 

This is the second of their Kickstarters I've been tempted by, but I'm always weary of what boardgame minis will actually end up looking like.

I backed The Edge and Nemesis. For both, the depth of detail seemed good, but there is a decent amount of flash to clean up. I'm happy with the quality, found it comparable to recent CMON plastic, albeit with more flash.

I certainly don't have mine. I can't speak for anyone else, but they're overdue like balls. :/

And I'm not sure what's going on. I've been assured they're on the way, but so far... nada.

Did AR release any large-sized miniatures in their boardgame KS?

 

IIRC, AR had some resins (one large resin of a statue in their This War of Mine KS), so mebbe they'll offer resin versions again. Shoot them a message.

 

I have the This War of Mine expansion, and the miniature details are softer than CMON.

 

Here're the prototypes from the FB page.

Blimey. I got my core box months ago. Still waiting for the expansions/2nd wave. The quality of their big miniatures is okay but the detail on their human sized figures is somewhat shallow or lacking. Something's not translating from the initial sculpts they show off to the final production samples they proudly display (and they seem to be totally fine with this). That being said the games they make are quite fun. If you're backing a Awaken realms project for the miniatures - don't. If you're backing it for the gameplay then by all means back and enjoy :).

 

Aku - Chan. I don't know if we're allowed to post videos here but I'll PM you with a link to a reasonably fair video review of some of their miniatures.

This one now has a start date:- 16th July.

 

Digging through their Facebook, it appears that the original plan was to do a small Kickstarter to create some of the minis in resin, then do another one later in the year for the game itself. But now they're just going to do the one Kickstarter and offer resin minis in the pledge manager.

 

So that's my pledge sorted out, unfortunately it sounds like they're only going to be doing the bigger minis with a resin option, so I'll probably miss out on some cool stuff like the Thorn Knight:-

Now that figure looks very Flower Knight from Kingdom Death doesn't it?

There's a definite KD vibe to the line in general, I think.  And that's not a bad thing at all.

I agree. And with the boxes, and art cards, and the pinups, etc. I dont mind it at all, either. I like this company. :)

      So pre-launch (I think October). Just under 2000 copies are already printed and will ship after the pledge manager closes. More supporters will be part of a second print run for January 2020. About 30US$ to ship to Canada for a softcover & pdf. Also the option exists to back in advance for the 3 follow up adventures. That seems to be at a 5$ discount from the first module.

      They are offering both STL files and 3D prints as rewards.
       
      I've ordered from their webstore in the past and liked their resin quality; I've never seen their 3D print quality.
