Moonstone Fantasy Skirmish Game Up On Kickstarter

Goblin King Games has launched a Kickstarter campaign for Moonstone, their new fantasy skirmish miniatures game. Players will be in control of their little band of 3-6 fairy-tale-inspired miniatures, looking for the titular moonstones. When some are found, it’s a mad dash to grab all they can. Of course, a resource such as that is going to be desired by everyone, and so you’ll have to make sure your opponent doesn’t just up and steal yours from you.


The game uses cards for many of the mechanics, with players drawing from a common deck. Bluffing is a big part of the game, so reading your opponent and knowing what they will play next is crucial. The figures are 32mm in scale.

The Kickstarter campaign’s rather close to their funding goal with still 22 days left to go.

    Looking at these miniatures and this world that the game takes place in, I thought of some other miniatures I would use as some fan made units that might work great as a “third” faction. I thought of the 18-20mm animal warrior characters from Splintered Light miniatures. They could be like the Reepa-cheep character in the Narnia world.

      I usually use Dark Sword as my go-to for adventurer critters.

        Yes, their figures are very nice, but I’m not about to spend 13 dollars for a hedgehog when I got 3-5 characters for 10 dollars.

          Ok, more like the Bones Mouselings then?

          Honestly, I think the issue with introducing some of these other lines into this game is just that the sculpting for Moonstone is super high quality (minis all have tons of characters, and good poses).

          There are other lines that would fit in just fine, but I don’t think they’re the cheap lines. I’m thinking more like Darksword’s Deterlizzi masterworks or some of the old Rackham dwarves.

    The minis for this game are all so beautiful.

    The influences of Labyrinth are strong here. And I think that’s a good thing.
