The Genesys Project Kickstarter
Tags : kickstarter
Hello everyone !!!!
Today Garry from Faiet launched his own Kickstarter (clap clap clap). Genesys !!!
The Genesys Project is a customizable tabletop miniature game where you create and customize your faction to fit and match your playstyle, miniatures you already own or want to get and customize. Creating your narrative extends further than just creating your faction and background, but continues through gameplay earning mission awards and progression that takes you through the Ages of the Genesys Project. Heroes are born through gameplay, and in the same manner, as your faction, gain new skills and technology allowing them to adapt and expand both your narrative and army. Weapons, armour, and even spell-like Powers are all customizable within the game.
The game has been in development now for the past 6 years, with over 900 gamers worldwide like you registering to take part a 14-month Open Beta during that time.
I read the rules and it looks very interesting, in fact, it could be a new brand of Deck Building but this time a Models Builder.
Plz, check the Kickstarter page for more details!

Steamforged games : Devil May Cry™ Kickstarter
Hello everyone !!
Finishing today on kickstarter there is the Devil May Cry board games by Steamforged Games.
It was a short 7 Days Kickstarter campaign and they Reached the goal already (170,897 € & 2386 backers)
DMC is a mix of Deck building, Competitive, Coop games. Each participant play one of the Heroes and Clear Wave of Monster all while gaining Style Points (victory) by using the longest chain of cards (Combo !).
It's odd but this campaign only have one level of pledge (2 if you count the Early Bird but that was for the same stuff).
The So called "Sparda Pledge" Is core game + 3 expansions.
As you can see the KS price is 77£ instead of 180£ retail so it's an ok deal (keep in mind they always exaggerate the retail price ^^)
The mini starts at 40mm and up to 110 mm
Honestly the mini look super cool if you are a fan of the DMC franchise, personally if have very fond memories of DMC 1 on PS2 (holy shit just checked and that was 18 years ago !!!).
I am an big fan of Deck Building games these days and this one look super interesting.
Each Hero have his own base deck and can upgrade it by killing monsters to earn Blood. During your turn you try to play Cards to form a combo chain that to kill Monsters and Rack Style Points (victory points).
You have the option to continue the combo or stop it to earn points. Off course if you maintain your combo and take damage it's over you loose it have to start over.
DMC is cooperative, don't need Gm and look easy on the rules. Only green light if you want to play with Casual friends. Also it seem to offer enough depth for playing with more gamer friends. Sound like a win win and big models to paint with my Airbrush is a big +
Steamforged games made a series of video about the game and offer to DL the rules now

Forgotten World: Fantasy Figures for Wargames and Roleplay
Hello everyone !!
Today i want to share this Kickstarter Campaign made by Fireforgegames
They are kickstarting a new line of Fantasy miniatures.
Fireforge Games is an Italian company with expertise in the creation and distribution of multi-part 28mm, miniature figures. Our products are made with Hard Plastic (HIP – High Impact Polystyrene) or resin to assemble and paint. The production of our kits will take place in the EU, completely under our quality control.
Personally i only know them for their bloodbowl team the AMAZON SMASHERS and Chronos
They also have an historical line that is 28mm that have good review from my friends into historical battle.
Intro : This Kickstarter campaign seeks funds to release six units for the first two Forgotten World's factions; the Northmen and the Living Dead. Below you will find a complete description of all the plastic kits, which will be released upon a successful Kickstarter; including our future available options and many pictures of assembled and painted figures, representing the final product.
So they are trying to start a new game. I didn't spent too much time on their alpha rules pack but it's rank and file battle system and there are rules for Skirmish play. PDF LINK
What interested me are the models themselves they are good alternative for Norse themed free cities army or to bolster a zombie horde (aos or 40k with a bit of work)
Not bad heh ?
Size comparison shot : (the one in the middle is the one in the kickstarter)
Bonus zombie render :
Really like the first one with the crow^^
As for all Kickstater review i ask some test product to see the stuff myself. Fireforge games sent me :
1 plastic sprue from their old Historical line
1 bag of resin casted elements (3D printed ?) of their new Fantasy line.
The historical model and sprue
Decent model,feel a bit old but i guess it's a good thing for an historical model.
The sprue is interesting and well furnished with multiple options and 10 différents head.
THIS KICKSTARTER IS NOT ABOUT THIS HISTORICAL LINE THE MODEL IS ONLY HERE TO CHECK THEIR PLASTIC QUALITY.
The Fantasy model
They sent me some bitz in resin from their warrior box (new fantasy line)
The model is actually quite good, and have a northern feel maybe inspired by GOT.
Would work fine for free guild / empire army.
(sorry i didn't spend much time cleaning or assembling. Painting wise it's only a black priming and white zénithal to see details)
On the kickstarter page there are details and options.
For the warrior box :
1x Command frame
2x Warriors frames
1x unit card with skills and equipment list
12x 20mm square bases and 12x 25mm diameter round bases
This box will allow you to assemble 12 figures; up to 12 spearmen OR up to 12 swordsmen OR up to 6 with two handed spears. The Command options will allow you to assemble one Leader, one Musician and one Standard Bearer.
It's not bad actually
Go check it out and see for yourself the other options. They are not cheap but some deals are interesting especially for undead players.
I think i am going to pledge a few box to get some models for RPG purpose.

Note : if you want to have a Kickstarter reviewed by us you must provide at least one model. Send us a mail for details.

Each 35mm miniature is produced in high quality resin, making it ideal for collectors, painters and gamers alike.
