The Drowned Earth Miniatures Game on Kickstarter

Posted on May 4th, 2017 under , . Posted by

If you listened to our Salute 2017: Interviews podcast, near the end you would have heard us chat to James Baldwin about The Drowned Earth Miniatures Game, which is currently being funded on Kickstarter. Some people may roll their eyes as we see ‘yet another warband skirmish game on a 3′ x 3′ table’ – however, James and his team are looking to do something a bit different with their miniatures and setting – I don’t think we’ve seen anything quite like this before, which is a very good thing in my opinion. The setting is most definitely science fiction – set in the land of Ulaya, a tropical world of flooded cities and ancient ruins. Simply looking at the factions shows us not just humans, but ape and reptilian characters and I find it refreshing that the races are mixed in the different factions, rather than being divided by species as they are in so many other games of this nature. The models are very good indeed – I managed to see them in the flesh at Salute and they live up to the pictures that are shown on the Kickstarter page. They are produced in metal, but are […]

Posted on April 6th, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

Ganesha Games have launched a new box game on Kickstarter – Star Eagles. This is a sci-fi game of space fighter combat using 1/285 scale miniatures, which are produced in resin. From the Kickstarter: Star Eagles is a science fiction action game of futuristic space fighter combat that allows you to play out the battles from your favorite books, movies, and TV shows. In a standard game, each player controls a squadron of 4-12 ships competing in exciting, objective-based missions in space, on moons, and in the atmosphere of planets. The game is easy to learn, yet tactically rich with many options that provide variety without bogging down the pace. Players build their squadron from a variety of small craft ranging from nimble, yet fragile, light fighters all the way up to larger gunboats and corvettes. Although Star Eagles may be used to play one-off missions, the game is intended to be played as a campaign where your pilots gain experience and you manage your squadron’s resources over a series of linked scenarios Although the game has it’s own universe, with it’s own models, it has an open source unit building system, which basically means you can use whatever models […]
