Alchemist Miniatures is happy to announce that they're going to be taking over managing the Alkemy range of miniatures. The group, which is composed of several friends who have been fans of the Alkemy miniatures game for some time, aren't just looking to keep the old version going, but are looking to update the game and even expand to new factions. A website has been created, concept art is being worked on, and a Kickstarter is in the works.
The group at Alchemist Miniatures have been working hard already, releasing new miniatures for the game, as well as working to restock all old miniatures, create objectives, create new textured bases, come out with custom battle mats, and even create special custom dice. You can see all of those products in their new webshop they've set up.
As for the revamp of the rules, they've been taken back to their fundamentals, with an emphasis on "fun." Alchemist Miniatures sees that the main reason people play games is to have fun, so they wanted to make sure that Alkemy was fun to play. They designed the rulebook layout and stat cards to be easy to read and understand. You don't have to spend hours combing through the book to figure out how to play. They also created a bunch of different scenarios so that no two games have to be the same.
But what of those two new factions of which I typed earlier? Those would be the Naashtis and Utopia factions. The Naashtis are snake-people who are masters of fire magic (tsssss, hot!). Meanwhile, the Utopians are a sea-faring people, once cast aside by society, but now ready to once more make themselves known to the world. You can expect the Kickstarter for them sometime in October.
