Whether you are looking for a new game, playing Frostgrave, 9th Age or any other game, you have got to check this Kickstarter out!!! The models look gorgeous and could likely be used in most systems that you play!
As a person that keeps his eye on the gaming market, there are a lot of options that capture my eye. Most recently, Fireforge Games caught my eye with their new Kickstarter, Forgotten World. Not much is known at this time about the gaming system that goes with the world, but the miniatures are hot!!!
As a note, all images in this post are by Fireforge Games and used with their permission. The Minis may still be subject to change. Be sure to check out there Kickstarter campaign before October 20th, 2018.
Currently there are three, perhaps four, boxes of plastic miniatures planned for the Northmen faction. These beauties could be used in Forgotten World (the game they are intended for) or any number of other games including Frostgrave, Dragon Rampant, and Kings of War.
This final set, I am not 100% sure if they will count as Northmen, but they are humans. As one of the Kickstarter goals, Fireforge Games plans to give their Zombie Peasants a Human treatment. So Cool!!!
Don’t these miniatures all look awesome so far?! Let’s check out the Undead now.
The Living Dead
Like the Northmen, there are three plastic boxed sets currently planned for the Living Dead faction. These guys are cool too for any of you Necromancers out there!
I think a friend of mine is getting in on a Living Dead Force and I am really looking forward to seeing how these miniatures look when the project is over.
Fitting in With Other Minis…
I believe that the guys at Fireforge realize that people want to get creative with this great looking range of figures. On the Kickstarter Page is a scale comparison picture repeated here.
In addition to the fantasy miniatures they are publishing with this Kickstarter, Fireforge Games is offering discounts on their plastic Historical Kits.
If you are interested in Kitbashing, below is an example of what the guys from Fireforge Games did with some of their current kits and parts from the Kickstarter kits.
Wrapping it up…
If you like what you have seen in this preview article, head on over to the Forgotten World Kickstarter Page and check it out. There are also a number of exciting Stretch Goals announced and two versions of a new game. A Skirmish Game (which I am interested in) and a Mass Battle Game too.
Event Notice – Kitchener, Ontario, Canada – October 13 and 14
SkyCon is an up and coming gaming convention in Kitchener, Ontario. They feature many RPGs and Board Games to choose from. They also have a number of Miniatures Tournaments on the books including ones for Maulifaux, Guild Ball, Blood Bowl, Dark Age, and Infinity. I plan to be at this event and can likely be found taking pictures or testing out one of the RPGs or Board Games (with minis in them).
Event Notice – Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada – October 19 and 20
Council Fires is is one of my favorite gaming events. This year it is in a new location closer to the American Boarder for my friends in New York that would like to come up for some games. I plan to be in attendance at this event and running an introductory game of Bolt Action.
