Coven: The Dark Fantasy Game pits Ved'ma against Ved'ma in an eternal struggle to gain control of The Cauldron and earn the title of Mat'kron, the Crone Mother.

 

Choose your Vedma carefully to lead your Coven of 15-25 creatures into battle against your opponent. Utilising 10 sided dice, this fast-paced and intuitive game system keeps both sides of the struggle involved in the action from beginning to end. Build your Coven from groups of denizens of the forest, wild beasts or mindless husks of former men. Bring brute strength to the table with mighty creatures such as the Bauk. Or twist fate to your will with the guile of the summoned. Alternating activations and the chance to react to your opponent's decisions mean managing your resources, and activating at the right time is the difference between victory and defeat.

 

A blind draw mechanic keeps suspense high whilst managing the fear level of your Coven stops the creatures under your control, descending into gibbering wrecks and ruining your chance at domination. Never forget everything is scared of something, be it the untold horrors of the forest or the thought of defeat at the hands of a rival Ved'ma.

 

Smite your enemies with thunderbolts, bend them to your will with a whispered word, twist the very forest around you with the movement of a hand, or summon fell beasts from the beyond and hope your control over them lasts long enough to fulfil your wicked schemes. Something wicked this way comes.

 

Got another interesting (IMO) Kickstarter starting later today.

They've been putting out a lot of freaky artwork, not sure how much is going to be translated in to minis yet though.

I'm in for a set of witches.

I'd like the book too, for the artwork, but I can't justify spending that much on something I'd look through once.

I think it's the right call. It seems like a setting where playing with mostly generic stand-ins would feel off, plus more miniatures could draw in more backers looking for the non-generic vide of figs, but not overly interested in the game.

Great, thanks! Thank you very much for the information and recommendations you provided. Lately, I really like to play computer games and online games. At https://pokiesman.com/aristocrat/ I read a review of the online Pokies Aristocrat. The Americans call them "slot machines", while the Australians call them "slot machines". These terms refer to the same form of gambling. Pokies is an abbreviated term for deceased slot machines, and most people use them to enjoy slot machines in Australia.

      $70 for 100+ miniatures, plus a free Terrax. Some overlap with Bones KS sculpts.
       
      Company is based in Spain, and, while this is their first plastic injection molding KS, they've been producing resin miniatures in previous KS.
       
      Myself, I've backed Bones I-IV, and double-pledged for Black List Game's Fantasy I and II, so am on the fence. And have a lot of mold lines to scrape.

      This Kickstarter just launched for double-sided magnetic dungeon tiles. Similar to Ettinstone tiles, and aside from appearing to be a bit thinner, I can’t see why these wouldn’t work with Ettinstone tiles (I certainly plan to use them that way).

      I didn't see this KS listed after a quick search.  I like the painters, and I like HD, but there's just so much free stuff out there now...

      Story
        Fallen Knight is a classic cooperative dungeon-crawler set in an outlandish dark fantasy world. Players take on the role of death knights, lost warriors who devour the memories of the dead for their silent gods. Once consumed, these long-forgotten memories can be used to unlock powerful, forsaken abilities. Alongside their mechanical advantages, these memories will be showcased in a beautifully realized artistic comic, revealing new insights into these dark lands..  Through a combination of its foreboding themes, exciting game mechanics, and unique artistic vision, Fallen Knight occupies an innovative space within the board game hobby, and we're so excited for you to be a part of it!
       

       

        Story The Fallen Knights were created by the Gods with the sole purpose of acquiring and reliving lost memories, to better satiate the Gods' voyeuristic appetites. Like dogs on a leash, the Knights were bound by oath to track and consume specific memories, as demanded by their greedy masters. These lost memories -- once consumed -- would offer the Knights a rare, tender glimpse of life. Yet it was fleeting; when returned, they were reduced once more to lifeless husks by their hideous lords. And so it continued for an age, in an endless cycle of servitude, lifelessness and hate....
      Now, the Gods are gone. The curse is broken, and the Knights are free to live and relive any memories they encounter. But like bad dreams, these memories are vague and fractured. And so it's time to leave the realm of the Gods, for Fallen Knights must forge their own path, or be lost forever alongside the memories they covet.
        Corpses As you travel the world, you will absorb the memories of corpses - both found and defeated - in order to enhance your characters, freely developing them as you wish.
      You will spend 'life' to reanimate 'unsouled' Fallen Knights, mastering their bodies and upgrading their potential effect on the game.
        Damned sword The Fallen Knight's 'Damned Sword' can naturally morph into new weapons; you'll be able to access the martial abilities of any character class, as long as you've consumed the right memories!
        Gameplay Fallen knight is a 1-4 player cooperative dungeon crawler board game. The gameplay consists of strategic, visceral combat, embedded within a campaign-driven framework. Though consumed memories, players will unlock the abilities of dead adventurers, which they can then use in combat. Each ability is represented by a unique ability card, composed of an individual action, a character class and weapon type.                 
      Synergies are special active or passive skills that Fallen Knights will receive if they have multiple abilities of the same class or weapon type. With hundreds of ability cards and over 20 unique synergies, Fallen Knight provides a dynamic and exciting space for character creation, customization and optimization!
      Instead of dice, Fallen Knight utilizes a sub-action deck. With over 20 sub-action cards, players can flexibly tailor their strategy to best deal with their immediate foes!
      Monsters are controlled by a combination of Monster Action cards and Monster Behavior cards. Monster actions - unique to each creature in Fallen Knight - will dictate its actions during boss battle combat. Monster behaviors - drawn from a deck shared by all monsters in the game - will modify the monster's actions by adjusting damage range or type, changing targets, or activating a myriad of special abilities.

      Looks like Miniac will be doing something to promote this, which I think will likely take it to funded.

      I think the frogfolk are particularly fun, but they have a bunch of other stuff. Worth checking out, there's an early bird special for the STL files or the physical resin prints. Because they're doing it all in house, appears to have a pretty quick turnaround too.
