November 14th 2014, that is this Friday people, Fallen Frontiers reboots with a brand new reorganized Kickstarter.
As you recall the game has 4 main factions, The Oh so cool Riff, the Super human-like Ares, the walking dead Harvesters and the human equivalent Sayx. What you may also recall is a 5th unknown race that was to be unlocked before.. I sure hope we get them unlocked this time around, as I have seen 2 sketches of what they will look like and I SO WANT THEM!
They have disclosed the material as Polyurethane Resin and the scale to be 1:48 or better known as O scale. Both of these work for me as I prefer the size, as I find it to be rather easy to locate terrain at my local hobby shop, but they also include terrain in the box so I have something to start with. For those of you who go by the millimeter method of measurement, they are measured at 35mm from the eyes to the sole that is the bottom of the feet for us Americans. Hero’s or main Characters will be slightly larger in scale in the KS boxes, “where they will not be afterwards”, to thank the backers with a special set of Hero miniatures… These will still work well in game as it is just 1mm difference in scale so everything will still be in the same ballpark as far as size goes. Speaking of hero’s, here are pictures of some now..
FINK DRAAD – One of a few survivors of the attempted extermination by INCRECOM.
BITSIE – One of 3 Operators that started the Condominium Ares.
SIHLAS FENN – Sgt and leader of the Berserkers.
I have also played the game at GENCON, and from personal experience know the rules to be well done, as well as different from most miniature games I have played. The Cards really add a competitive play style that should be appealing to Card Game players as well as Miniature War-gamer’s. Speaking of playing, the miniatures for this game are spot on, they are a great size, not too large or too small. The detail on them is outstanding. My Buddy at GREEN FAIRY STUDIOS was given one of the Sihlas Fenn models and is currently painting it.. it is turning out nice, he has a jaguar theme going on. You can follow along on its progress on his facebook site. ( PICTURE OF MODEL – Early Stages )
Here is a sample of the models unassembled.
I am so looking forward to this Friday, aren’t you? For a much more information and a more in-depth accounting of the game and its characters please visit the Official Facebook page here – https://www.facebook.com/Fallenfrontiers
