“Yeah, but how do the miniatures look?” is a question a lot of gamers have about their games. A lot of us are addicted to those little bits of plastic, and a good set of minis can turn a mediocre game into a great game. In this preview from Steamforged, they’re showing off some of the pre-production figures they’re working on for Resident Evil 2.
From the post:
We’ve seen quite a few queries about how production for Resident Evil™ 2: The Board Game is going over the last week or so and want to thank our awesome community for their patience. We’re deeply appreciative of each and every one of you, and have a bonus update in addition to the regular Monday updates you’ve come to anticipate.
A few weeks back we received the first ever pre-production samples in at SFG HQ. These samples were cast in Poly Urethane (PU), a brittle resin type of plastic which allows us to check the detail level of the miniatures before beginning production proper. This is critical to ensure the quality of the miniatures that backers will get and that SFG expect from all our products. As expected, although the samples looked fantastic, we had some revisions which needed to be addressed and this was passed onto our production partners.
These changes have now been made, and today we received the first ever batch of Resident Evil™ 2: The Board Game production models in Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC). These are the final models which our backers will receive in their copies of Resident Evil™ 2: The Board Game, and we’re very excited to see them arrive!
