Dead Earth Games (makers of Across the Dead Earth) has launched their Kickstarter campaign for The Shattered Crown, their new fantasy miniature wargame. The game is influenced by historical units from the years 1200 to 1500 in Europe. Despite the focus on historical aspects to create the units, the game is not a historical battles game. It is a true fantasy game with various fantasy elements like mages, magical weapons, and bear cavalry. Who doesn’t love a good bear cavalry unit?
A typical army in The Shattered Crown will have an army leader, some form of special hero, a mage to take care of mystical aspects, 1-3 units of infantry (which has about 12 miniatures in it), an elite unit (which has around 6 miniatures in it), and a cavalry unit or some other special unit (generally has about 3 miniatures in it).
The campaign is about 1/4 funded, but just got started, so there’s still 27 days to get the rest of the funds.
