Nemishere has a new preview up of their new line of sci-fi miniatures they’ll be Kickstarting soon.


From the preview:

The Decrypte
Here are the AI robotic forces known as the Decrypte. Created by a colony offshoot of the human race, the advanced robotic AI eventually became fully sentient and created a body in which it could escape then work to replicate itself, thus creating “self” in kind. Decades after escaping, the sentient AI has now returned to assess and contain the greatest “unstable” threat to its existence, humanity.

Decrypte Monolock
Due to their robotic form and function, Decrypte units are visually diverse. Utilizing a variety of different builds, the Decrypte employ a wide arsenal of walking, hovering and wheeled units. The first Decrypte unit in the Nemisphere Kickstart is the Monolock. The Monolock will be offered with the initial Kickstart, thus is not a stretch goal.

The Monolock is the standard assault unit for the Decrypte. Well built and marginally quick, the Monolock is armed with two light plasma guns attached to its arms. Although the plasma guns are not very strong, it allows the Monolock a higher rate of suppressive fire against its enemies. The Decrypte Monolock comes with four different bodies and four different sets of arms to create 10 miniatures total.

Decrypte Mantis
The first stretch goal unit for the Decrypte is the Mantis. The Mantis is inspired by a large species of bug found on the vegetation rich planet of Argris. Armed with two heavy scythes on its arms, the Decrypte Mantis is capable of ripping into its armored foes with horrifying speed and unnerving mechanical determination.

Aside from the Mantis’s close combat prowess it is also a highly mobile unit with very fast movement, capable of moving over light terrain such as heavy brush, small rocks and light debris without penalty. The Decrypte Mantis comes with 4 different bodies and 4 different sets of arms to create ten miniatures total.

Decrypte Hunter Killer Wraith
The next stretch goal is the Decrypt Hunter Killer Wraith. Due to its size and weapon strength, the Wraith is considered a medium support unit. Its Hunter Killer status denotes that it comes from hovering units amongst the Decrypte which are able to skim over light terrain features at no penalty to their movement. The Wraith features a heavy plasma cannon attached to one of its arms and then a reinforced full body arm with clamp style fingers capable of ripping light armor apart.

The Wraith is a larger multi-piece model with a 40mm scale body. Its height is similar to other miniatures due to its floating gravity train. The Decrypte Hunter Killer Wraith comes with 3 different bodies and 3 different sets of arms to create 5 miniatures total. The Wraith’s head and body are one piece with a ball joint that glues into its gravity train which also allows for further posing choices.

Decrypte Hunter Killer Sentinel
The last preview for stretch goals is the Decrypte Hunter Killer Sentinel. Hailing from the Hunter Killer divisions within the Decrypte, the Sentinel has a very straightforward form and function. Its central purpose serves as a highly mobile patrol unit for Decrypte controlled domains.

The Sentinel has also been known to serve in direct action combat roles such as a light strike unit, or a highly mobile unit that can harass and flank enemy forces thus bogging them down in combat while other Decrypte units move in to finish them off. The Decrypte Hunter Killer Sentinel comes with one ship design and 5 different flying stands at various heights to create five miniatures total.

I was born at a very young age. I plan on living forever. So far, so good.

    The more I see of this, the more it looks like the sculptor picked up the Mike Jensen books or dvds and got halfway through and was just like “f it, I’m ready!!!” These mostly look like z-spheres that were barely formed and then just a whole bunch of hard surface tools used..

  • Major_Gilbear

    Sorry, but I think these look ugly, blobby, and… Just not very well sculpted. =0\

  • Soulfinger

    Are you guys kidding?! This is going to be the best game ever! You’ve got the Monoclock, because what time is it? Time to die! He’ll shoot you with his two gun arms, but sadly, he will never enjoy a cup of coffee. Then, there is the Mantis, inspired by a large species of bug on an alien planet (because of trademark issues with the mantis on Earth). It will scythe you in twain with its two sickle arms, but sadly, he too will never enjoy a cup of coffee. Then, the Hunter Killer Wraith, who both hunts and kills and may even yell “BOO!” while doing it. He even has a hand for drinking coffee! But sadly, he’ll never know the excitement of completing the Boston Marathon. Last, the Hunter Killer Sentinel, which may seem a little redundant in that it also hunts and kills, but this one also watches. It’s main advantage is that most people mistake it for a jetpack discarded on the battlefield. Big mistake there!

    I like them.

      It’s Red Rogers!

        I like some of them too; I liked most of Corpse Hammer stuff as well. Oh, and I’m not the guy 🙂
        Agreed, some part could be refined, esp. the feet and thigh, and I clearly dislike the dronethings. But the basic guys seem very reasonably pricedn and the biomechanic feel of the bots is very nice.
        As for the over the top concept and lingo that goes with it, I can’t care less. Some other compagnies have made far worse (and are pretty succesful at that). Plus, it’s not a game, simply a miniature range, so…
        Why all the hate since the begining, Soulfinger? Do you have personal issues with the guy?

        • Soulfinger

          No. No personal issues whatsoever. I just found Corpse Hammer to be hilariously bad, and that sentiment kind of carries over to this. I don’t even intend it as hate, just general mockery that can easily come across as horrendously severe to some (most? all?) readers. I’d be thrilled were the guy to succeed and best wishes to him. It was my mistake to throw the designer’s name into the ring there, for which I am sorry. The effort deserves respect.

          I suppose I find ridicule to be warranted in some cases because of the propensity for gamers to say “This is a great idea” and leap into a project without thinking it through. I’ve seen people blow their life savings, their inheritances, and money from their friends and family on gaming businesses with 0% chance of success. In real life, with people I know, I can direct them to business resources, help review their plan, make suggestions and feel safely ignored when the person says, “Business plan? My plan is to open the best FLGS ever!1!” before going bankrupt 3 months later.

          Online . . . well, it’s a venue for mockery, misunderstandings, and hurt feelings, so I just go with that. I spout off as a distraction from the awfulness in my own life, and I’d be more constructive if I really thought anyone gave a crap about my opinion (and have been in those instances where someone asked). Ideally, everyone would succeed at following their dreams, but as things are, developing a thick skin is terribly important.
