As you long-time readers know, I love big minis (and I cannot lie), especially if they’re robots or armored suits. Well, it seems a game has come along made just for me. It’s called Immortal Kings, and it’s a miniatures game that uses a larger scale for its figures, giving you more detail and differences in sculpts, and it includes a faction of giant mecha and suits and such. The game is up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
Immortal Kings is a tabletop miniature skirmish wargame. Designed for two or more players, each person commands a set of highly-detailed miniatures representing a unique faction.
Immortal Kings is designed for hobbyists who enjoy collecting / painting miniatures and building realistic battlefield terrain, as well as for gamers seeking a high-quality, modular wargame. Each miniature comes with a character card detailing its statistics and abilities. The only other supplies needed to play are 6-sided dice and a tape measure.
A game of Immortal Kings can be played in 1 hour, on a 4′ x 4′ tabletop surface, by both novices and experienced players. More serious wargamers can use advanced rules, making Immortal Kings richly competitive.
The core rule set will be available for free, for the life of this game. We believe in community-driven rule development and will be taking feedback before, and long after, the launch of this game. Rules will be released when we open our online store to backers.
Rules are still under development and a portion of the funding will go towards their completion. For this reason we are holding back from showing any game play videos or scenarios. If you are familiar with other leading tabletop skirmish wargames, the core rule set will be easy to follow and use.
The campaign is up and running now. It’s set to go for another 28 days.
