Altar Quest

Recommended Posts

150 miniatures and counting! $109 base pledge.

By the Sadler Brothers (Descent, Gears of War, Mansions of Madness). "Roll to resolve" dice mechanic with some HeroQuest nostalgia. Playthrough videos explain the rules well.

"Using the Modular Deck System (MDS), introduced in Street Masters and Brook City, the game features incredibly modular gameplay using several different types of decks. Hero decks, threat decks, villain decks, and quest decks can all be mixed and matched along with altar cards, feature cards, and other game elements to create countless combinations of unique adventures. With an engaging one-off experience and narrative campaign play, Altar Quest offers players endless adventure in a unique fantasy setting with years of support planned for the game.

 

Miniatures are unpainted, but here's a painted pic by one of the designers and painter...

That's a pretty good deal for a bunch of nice looking figures and terrain objects.

Yeah, I think I'm probably going to call this one next year's father's day present and set a reminder for myself and the fam that's its covered. 

 

I love the idea that I could paint up the terrain and store it in a tub that I can use for D&D or the actual board game.

I think it is interesting how much like Hero Quest everything here looks.

I think I have less nostalgia, because I tend to prefer dungeon crawlers that are a bit farther away from that aesthetic.

So, I did back this, and my copy arrived today.  I'm pretty happy with this - I didn't go for any expansions (other than a set of more dice), and between the base box and the expansion I'm swimming in content.  I feel like I've gotten my $109 worth. :)

 

So many cards.

Mine arrived yesterday too.  It's always fun when the stretch goal box is bigger than the original game box (or at least it feels bigger to me).  I haven't opened anything yet.  Getting my Elegoo Saturn printer set up and running.

Oh, I think it is a smidge bigger.  I'm looking forward to trying it out, but I'm not sure how I'm going to manage all these counters.

 

Oh, and I quite like the trays of minis - it's very nicely organized.

      About
          Welcome to our latest Kickstarter release: Wood Elves
      A collection of wood elf miniatures that will continue to grow after the completion of this project. So let us know what else you want to see. We may even squeeze a few more miniatures into this campaign! 
       
      Artist (Dan Jack): "This was quite an exciting project to work on.  I have always pictured wood elves to be more feral and slightly darker than modern interpretations. The horns for me, are a way of depicting an elder, in an otherwise young looking race. As the elves become more integrated with the forest, they start to develop horns, which are seen as a nod to their stature with in the force. You will see some of the leaders with horns. This in turn, is a foundation we will be building into the narrative of our game. The death of an elf works in both directions. As they come closer to death and old age, you shall see a more warped by the forest aesthetic. I am looking forward to pushing this further with characters in the expansion of this range, as well as more young'uns."
        Please note that the items that are shown in black are a guaranteed addition to box sets. They will be revealed as stretch goals to generate excitement!
       
      Shipping Date:  APRIL 2020
      If you don't want the full box set, you can build your own custom order, by adding up the value of the items you want, and then pledge that amount in the 'build you own pledge' reward. You will get to pick and choose what you want in the pledge manager using your credit.

      and much more. You can also get character models and army units à la carte   (that's what I'm going to do). I backed his halflings and was extremely happy with what I received.
