AntiMatter Games


Gen Con is gone and done for the year. It's certainly a lot of work, but it's also a lot of fun. It will be missed, but it will be back again before we know it. AntiMatter Games was at the show, showing of DeepWars and ShadowSea. They've got a special deal going on over in their webshop as a bit of a Gen Con wrap-up. They've also got a bit they're showing off from the upcoming DeepWars video game.
AntiMatter Games has added some new minis to their webshop for ShadowSea. These are some of the Draconid minis they had made from their Kickstarter campaign a while back. Now, if you missed out, you can get yourself some of the figs. And hey, they're having a sale, too. They've extended their spring sale to the end of May. So just use code "AMG" at checkout and get 20% off your order.

From the announcement:
Once again we're here at a Wednesday. The first half of the week is done. The rest of it stretches before us like a 2-day behemoth.
Or maybe it's not so bad for you. Maybe Thursday and Friday are like puppy-dogs. That'd be nice. I love puppies. But now we're getting off-topic.

On-topic, we've collected some bite-sized stories for you and present them now.

In this grouping we've got: New Carthaginian Shield Transfers from Victrix, More WIPs pics of the Queen Of Hearts by Kabuki Models, New Magnetic Foil 32mm Rounds from Tabletop-Art, some more episodes of The Fiver from The Meeple Mechanic, The Nexus Terror from Icarus Miniatures Artwork Preview, Meet Brunhild and The Flag for War of Wonders Miniatures Game, Kromlech New Release - Hobby Drill and Super Glue Activator, New Ogre Cossacks Band from Scibor, New 15mm Hippogriff Aerodyne pre-order from Darkest Star Games, and Previews of the Harlequin Burglar for ShadowSea.

It's a cold, rainy Sunday here in Atlanta. Perfect weather to stay inside and do some gaming.

In today's News Snippets we've got a look at some greens from AntiMatter Games, an update from Rocket Games about Last Saga's model-making process, new survivors added to RN Estudio's Survivor Indiegogo, new Valksburg Grenadiers from Mad Robot Miniatures, and more!

AntiMatter Games is running a special holiday sale on their DeepWars and ShadowSea products over in their webshop. Get 20% off your purchase until the end of the year. There aren't a lot of really good underwater monsters minis around, so be sure to check them out if you're in the market for any of those.

From the post:

The Draconid Royal Guard is almost complete now and just needs a base.


AntiMatter Games' Kickstarter campaign may be over with, but that doesn't mean you can't still jump in and unlock more goals. Their pledge manager is up and they're running a sale over on their website.

From the announcement:

The Rise of the Draconids Kickstarter has completed, unlocking many stretch goals in an impressive final push. Current backers that pledged in August for the Kickstarter can add to their pledges in the Pledge Manager using the “Pitch-In” paypal button, while new backers can join in with pledges. As extra incentive, we are adding in the stretch goals that were not achieved. When unlocked by the Pitch-In pledges, those figures will be produced as stretch goals and can be added to rewards (The first miniature is already unlocked - Harlequin Lizardman Burglar). Both ShadowSea and DeepWars items are available as rewards.

AntiMatter Games has just a couple days left in their Rise of the Draconids Kickstarter campaign. They've passed their goal and are working through stretch goals.

From the campaign:

Now that we're nearing the last few days, there are a couple of changes to the stretch goals,adding in a couple of scenic terrain items and bringing in Lithiana a bit closer, to $11,500. The first scenic item are treasure markers, resin cast and about 40-50mm in diameter with lots of detailed gold, crystals and ether tech items. There are planned to be two per pack due to their size. These are placed as treasure objective markers during the game. The next scenic item is a crystal outcropping, areas where models may mine valuable ether crystals. This one should be around 100mm on the base and rise up about 75mm in height, with many crystals and detailed groundwork.


AntiMatter Games has made it through their Draconids Start Set stretch goal for Rise of the Draconids on Kickstarter. Next to be unlocked is Lithiana.

From the campaign:

The stretch goals keep moving along for the Rise of the Draconids Kickstarter. We have unlocked the Draconid Cannon Master and the Deluxe Stater Set for the Draconid Legion now, so both can be added to pledges. The next reward up will be the sorceress of the Dark Mariners, Lithiana - Queen of the Deep.

Lithiana is a powerful Ethermancer who has delved into the secrets of the ethereal abyss and is able to summon beings from the void to serve her. The Queen of the Deep has trading much of her own soul in the process and ruthlessly slays any who oppose her.

Lithiana glides across the battlefield using a biomech levitation device, battling enemy forces with a deadly plasma blade. She also had the capability to lead and and control Biomech Constructs with the control device on her hand, making her doubly effective at controlling allied beings (ethereals and biomechs). Lithiana can be used on both ShadowSea and DeepWars.


AntiMatter Games goes all "holy order" on you with their Templar Sentinel added to their Rise of the Draconids Kickstarter campaign.

From the campaign:

This sculpt has been waiting for a base to be made but it will be finished soon. It is now added as a reward for $8 or 1 point. The figure is meant for DeepWars but can also be used in ShadowSea. Sentinels are very effective at banishing ethereals, casting protection spells and disrupting constructs, transfixing them.


AntiMatter Games has added new stretch goals and rewards over on their Rise of the Draconids Kickstarter campaign. There's still 21 days left in the campaign.

From the campaign:

For the "Rise of the Draconids" Kickstarter, the next stretch goal is the Draconid Cannon Master along with his assistant sidekick. The cannon is a devastating weapon that fires explosive balls filled with crystal shards.

Some rewards have been added as well, from the classic line of Dragonblood miniatures. These include Templars and a Dragon Hunter for the Fortune Hunters, an Outlaw Queen for the Axibalan Empire and two witches for the Order of Yosoth. All of these minis will get new game cards for ShadowSea.


AntiMatter Games has launched a new ShadowSea mini-Kickstarter campaign to expand their line.

From the campaign:

AntiMatter Games successfully launched ShadowSea this month, a massive undertaking since we had purchased the entire Dragonblood miniatures line midway during the Kickstarter and included that line in the rewards. The Dragonblood purchase, combined with the new sets in the project, allowed AntiMatter Games to create miniatures for all ShadowSea forces, but some holes in the line still remain. While all forces now have miniatures, some forces need a few more miniatures to make Warband Starter Sets and to add specialized troops.
AntiMatter Games has a new batch of ShadowSea minis available over in their webshop. Plus, they're having a special sale.

From the announcement:

The new ShadowSea miniatures are available in limited stock now from the store. We’re also having a Summer sale of 20% off of all store orders, including on the new items. Just input the coupon code “amg” in the shopping cart for the discount.


AntiMatter Games will be sending out their ShadowSea Kickstarter stuff next month. They've also got another Pledge Manager up for those that want to get in on it.

From the post:

The ShadowSea Kickstarter has progressed well and we are in the last stages of production, gearing up for shipments in late April. We have a pledge manager system in place using a paypal PitchIn tool for those who want add any more items to their existing pledge, or for those that still want to get in on the game at the last minute. One other benefit of adding to a pledge or joining is that there are two final miniatures for the Sunless Kingdom Deluxe Starter Set that are stretch goals, the Cochi Dark-Eye and the foul Cave troll. Enos Kline is working on those right now and I hope to be able to ship them as part of the Kickstarter rewards. The big troll might be a couple of weeks later since it is going to be in resin, but it could be shipped separately.
AntiMatter Games is showing off the finished sculpt for their Dagothan Man-Slayer mini for DeepWars/ShadowSea.

From the preview:

We have put up a few photos of the Dagathonan Man-Slayer sculpt now on Facebook. It is on its way to us for casting and will finish up the figures in the ShadowSea Deluxe Starter for Dark Mariners force from out Kickstarter. We have a couple more figures to complete and then all of the Kickstarted models will be done.

This figure will also work in DeepWars since the Dagathonans are all amphibious. We have been working to make sure the new ShadowSea rules are fully compatible with DeepWars so people can use models across both games.

From the sales announcement:

It is now the dead of Winter, ice covering the land under the polar vortex as the bitter cold forces people back into their caves. To celebrate staying warm and playing a few games, we are having a Winter Sale of 20% off for all orders, even for the smallest of items. This discount can be applied to an order in the shopping cart by entering the coupon code "amg" and hitting the "update" button. Existing special bundle deals are excluded from the sale as they are already discounted, but those bundles can be mixed with other regular items in the cart and those items will be discounted at 20%.

AntiMatter Games might be done with their successful Kickstarter, but that doesn't mean the fun has to end. Anyone that missed out can still join in (though without all of the goodies of the Kickstarter) via their post-funding pledges on the AntiMatter Games website.

From the update:

The ShadowSea kickstarter was a success, and with the final burst at the end we unlocked a couple more miniatures and the bonus stretch goals. For those who want add any more items to their existing pledge, please visit our Mini-pledge manager page, running until early December. Here, anything added via Paypal with the Pitch-in button will go towards unlocking miniatures we missed during the Kickstarter.

If anything new is unlocked, it can be added to the pledge also. New backers can join in here as well, although they get fewer bonus points than the original backers did. The free points from the 25K stretch level are also not applied for any pledge modifications or new backers as those were just for the original Kickstarter run. So far, Jujazca the Wise has been unlocked and progress has been made towards the Gark Gutripper.


AntiMatter Games has just a week left for their ShadowSea campaign on Kickstarter. They've made it just over their goal, so it's looking to see how many stretch goals they can go through. They've also got a WIP up of the new Kalath model they're working on.

From the update:

Pose modified to fit on a base that could work in the game better, head down to allow room for rider. Much more detail to horns and skin. Needs a lot of work though. The entire body will be re-skinned, with all new armor and new rider. The only thing that will not be modified much is the stone head.

From the update:

We have some new sculpts coming in for the ShadowSea Kickstarter, including the Templar Demon Slayer for the Fortune Hunter force. The newest update also has some new studio paintjobs on DeepWars miniatures.


AntiMatter Games continues on with their ShadowSea Kickstarter campaign. They're showing off some more painted miniatures and WIP models over there you should go check out.

From the update:

We're about a third of the way through the ShadowSea - Conquest of the Underlands kickstarter and making good progress. We have had a few updates, showing new sculpting and some new studio paintwork. We're close to being funded and just need a few more backers to join in.

ShadowSea is a miniatures skirmish game in a lost underground world. The game is based on the acclaimed Song of Blades ruleset, so it is highly customizable, even allowing players to make their own stats for figures they already have in their collection. ShadowSea works as the land-based companion to DeepWars, so many of the miniatures can operate seamlessly between the two games to allow for complex campaigns across land and below the sea


AntiMatter Games has added some goodies to their ShadowSea Kickstarter campaign. They've got battle mats and swim bases. Plus they've posted some WIP sculpts.

From the update:

Richard Hale from Battleboards.UK has come up with a more affordable way to make the fabric maps with rubber backing, so we will work with him and do a short run for the Kickstarter, to "test the waters" as it were. If this is a popular item, we may make more types of them. The rewards will be $56 + $10 international shipping. These are really big and fairly heavy and must be shipped in a mailing tube, separately from any other items in a box, hence the additional shipping factored in.

From the campaign:

ShadowSea is a game of fast-paced miniatures combat in a lost underground world using 28mm scale figures, powered by the renowned Song of Blades ruleset from Ganesha Games and set in the same world as our game DeepWars. Five competing forces search for ancient artifacts and golden treasures through crumbling ruins, trap-filled catacombs and underwater citadels. ShadowSea has many features that make it a flexible gaming system that is perfect for beginners but deep enough for experienced gamers. The goal of this project is to make the second edition version of ShadowSea, with new artwork, rules and complete starter sets of miniatures. We are already hard at work on the miniatures, with some already completed.

We have an experienced group of sculptors working on the range, including Patrick Keith, Gautier Giroud, Brother Vinni, Bob Olley, Bobby Jackson, E. Louchard, Sandra Garrity and Paolo Fabiani. Below are some of the sculpts in progress by Bob Olley and Paolo Fabiani for the Dark Mariners.
