From the interview:

About two months ago in one of the many Facebook groups I am subcribed to, it appeared a publication of a new game with a western aestetics and no more information. As many of this new games coming out, it is from Spain, and as most of these Spanish games, they have a high quality miniatures. I contacted them for an interview and they agreed with pleasure. Before the interview, I read the rulesystem of the game and the truth is that I liked it. It has a system simmilar to the AROs from infinity system, but we’ll see that it has a different origin. The setting of the game is in the mid-nineteenth century, in a world a little different (more fantastic, more interesting for me too).By the time I got to know the game, and set up the interview had not yet painted miniatures , today we are already seeing quite a few models with a level of very good painting. But let our guests today speak of their creation, with you the friends of Ghost Train Games.

Interview with Board Game Artist Xavier “Naïade” Durin

Board Game Quest sat down with board game artist Xavier Durin and figured you’d like to know what they had to talk about.

From the article:

I’ve recently been hooked on the amazing progress of the Tokaido Collecter’s Edition Kickstarter campaign. With only a couple of days to go (at the time of this writing), the game has already pass $400,000 in support. I already own a copy of Tokaido, but I’m still backing the collector’s edition. One of the reasons I enjoy Tokiado so much is because of the fantastic artwork. Playing the game has an almost zen like feel as the artwork and components just tie together perfectly to fit the theme. Thinking more on this, I was prompted to hunt down Tokaido’s amazing artist, Xavier Durin. He was kind enough to spare a few minutes to talk with us and answer some questions. Xavier Durin, known in the board gaming world as Naïade, has illustrated some eye catching games like the aforementioned Tokaido, Seasons, and Isla Dorada. Naïade doesn’t actually speak English, so we did our best to clear up any translations errors. I hope you enjoy his insight into being a board game artist.
