Demigods Rising

Well, we're mostly caught-up here after the Expo last weekend. Still a few things to deal with, but my inbox was actually down to a manageable level after going through it yesterday. Of course, it's now filled back up again, but waddyagonnado?

Another thing that's full is the box with the bite-sized stories we've collected over the past couple days.
Good thing it's time for our regular Snippets post.

In this batch we have: New Releases from Scotia Grendel, Mounted Heroes 3D Store Opening This Fall, Some More Installments of "The Fiver" with The Meeple Mechanic, Spirit of Slaughterloo scenario for Flintloque, Manorhouse Workshop Update #38 – Modular Underground Project – New Pledge and new Early Bird, Iron Battlefield: corridors, buildings and catwalks for Space Hulk & Infinity on Indiegogo, Siren Miniatures posts Concept art for incoming July releases, Japanese-themed Robin Hood figures on Indiegogo, New Colossal Zeppelin from Titan-Forge, New Dungeon Saga Tiles Previews, New Dungeon Saga Tiles Previews, Heroic Maps - Outstation H9-7M, Infinity Plus One Master of Coin Kickstarter Happening Now, Soda Pop Miniatures Previews Beach Party Marie-Claude, Tabletop-Art Previews new Terrain, Historical, Fantasy and Sci-fi Offers at, New Pulp Alley figures by Statuesque, and Demigods Evolution unlocks Angel of Death.

The fellows over at Demigods Rising want to make sure you get all the figures you want right away in their Demigods Evolution Kickstarter campaign. As such, they've got a new pledge level where they've created two new starter sets. They've done their best to give you a good variety of minis and all the little tokens you might need to use them.
Give yourself a pat on the back. You've made it to another Wednesday. We're halfway to the weekend. If you have any mid-week gaming plans, we'd love to hear about it down in the comments. Over the next couple days, I'll be prepping for the D&D game I'm running on Saturday. Last session, the group narrowly avoided TPK twice. So obviously, I need to up my game some.

As usual for the day, we've got some bite-sized stories we've collected together for you.

Demigods Rising has launched their Kickstarter campaign for Demigods Evolution, their new fantasy miniatures board game. In it, players have recently become demigods and must collect together their heroes in order to fight the other demigods of the realm. The winner has proven their worth and will become the new god of war.
Demigods Rising is in their last day over on Kickstarter. If you want in on this new strategy board game, better hurry.



From them to you:

Only one day left on the Demigods Rising Kickstarter clock! Things are red hot at the moment! In the last 24 hours, 4 new stretch goals have been unlocked, releasing Blacksmith, additional game board tiles and obstacles, and raising the number of unlocked stretch goals to 14!

The Shaman is now waiting in line to become the part of Demigods Rising! This lovely lady is Queen of the Orcs. She has a powerful healing ability and can even lay down a hex or two if the fancy takes her. With Her powerful abilities drain a lot of her mana, but she also has the ability to regain some of it when other heroes die on the battlefield. She’s no push over and should be well protected!

From the post:

We have started a series of presentations to bring our Heroes closer to you. First one in line is Black Wolf. Dive in, learn her moves, you are going to need it!

"One of the wolves, a large black female, stood beside the little orc girl and bared her teeth to any who would come near. From that day forward, the girl stayed in the company of the rogue orc tribe, but she was raised by the wolf."

Next in line is our favorite dwarf. Check out: the Gunner!

"Every weapon imaginable could be found on that slab, but only one caught my eye—a large pistol with a handle of polished oak. It was a brute of a gun, with a barrel wider than a man’s eye and bullets like metal plums."

Demigods Rising is showing off a new hero for their game, the Tactician.



From the campaign:

Next on the list is presenting a long lost brother who is finally here to complete our own Fantastic 4. Please welcome: TACTICIAN! Beware of this guy! Every move that he makes, it means something.

Wargamers Consortium posted an editorial talking about the re-launch of Demigods Rising over on Kickstarter and how they've turned a failed campaign into a new successful one.

Demigods Rising


From the article:

A good example of success from failure, Demigods Rising is a cool board game the pits you against each other in an arena type setting and pledge levels which you can't ignore!

Demigods Rising: Clash of Heroes is a new fantasy skirmish board game that's over on Kickstarter and looking for some funding love.


From the campaign:

Demigods Rising is a Skirmish-style board game in which players take the roles of the demigods, commanding armies of heroes to prove supremacy over others and ascend as the new God of War. As a demigod, a player initially has access to 20 heroes from which they can chose their army. With these choices made, a demigod then faces his opponent(s) on the sacred battleground.
