Relic Knights


Ninja Division's miniatures game, Relic Knights, had a bit of a bumpy start to its existence. But the company is looking to start anew and they've launched a Kickstarter campaign in order to make it a reality.
The weekend is pretty much upon us. We just need to finish up this afternoon and we'll be there. Do you have plans? I'm still unsure. Though I think I want to make a cheesecake, because it's been a while since I've made cheesecake. Probably make more strawberry-lime sauce to go with it. Or maybe I'll do raspberry-lime. I don't know. But there's still time to think about it. In the meantime, we gotta fill up on some bite-size gaming stories.

On the platter today we have: West Wind Productions Announces Panzer Mech Kickstarter, Ninja Division Announces Relic Knights 2nd Edition Kickstarter, Wiley Games New Home Of Fistful of Lead, New Animal Explorers From RN Estudio, Khurasan releases M1152 with canvas cover, New Releases From Hitech Miniatures, New Release from Kromlech, and Rectangular Bases on Sale From Micro Art Studio.

Well, the kids are back in school. I know because every morning and afternoon there's a constant parade of school buses going through my apartment complex, dropping them off. Seriously, it goes on for several hours. But there's good things to be had as well. For example, Soda Pop Miniatures is having themselves a sale.
So, it's coming up to 8pm. Day 2 is definitely in the books for Gen Con 2016. It's been a very busy day. I'm tired, but still pretty amped about everything that's gone on. And I'm sure you all would like to know about some of it. There's been about a billion things to see. So, relatively, here's a rather small percentage. More will come tomorrow.
Seriously, 2016 is turning into the Year of New Editions. Ninja Division/Soda Pop Miniatures are getting onto the bandwagon with a new version of their Relic Knights rules. Version 1.5 is available now for your downloading and playing pleasure. This is sort of an "open beta" test of the rules. So they're very much looking for your feedback.
I've got a story that involves giant robots, so you know I'm excited about that. It's been a while since Ninja Division/Soda Pop Miniatures has talked about Relic Knights. The game got off to a... somewhat rocky start. But even though Ninja Division hasn't been posting about the game doesn't mean they haven't been working on it, quietly, stealthily, behind the scenes. No, they're finally ready to let out some information about what they've been doing, complete with new artwork and model previews (and that's where the giant robots come in... along with some guy in seafoam green pants).
Ninja Division has announced their first expansion for Relic Knights, and they're going in with both feet. The new expansion, called Relic Knights: Void Break, will have 40 new units spread across all 6 factions for the game. The set is designed to be a new jumping-on point as well, with a new rulebook that's been updated with information from a year of player feedback and various errata and clarifications that've been made. This new expansion is going to be coming out in September. Along with all the new models and rules updates, the figure material is getting an update as well. The new figures will be in resin with the large, centerpiece models being in plastic.

From the announcement:
Welcome to the world of the 1-hour-in-the-future.
I hope everyone enjoyed their little time-jaunt this morning (everyone being "everyone who lives with daylight savings time," that is).

So, fellow time-travelers, let's see what bite-sized stories we found in the past couple days.

Included are: A bunch of more The Fiver installments from The Meeple Mechanic, New Relic Knights Ultra Pro Card Sleeves and Deck Boxes, Assault Publishing releasing laser-cut modular terrain system, 2 New F.A.T.

A dense fog falls over Atlanta this Wednesday. Though it's supposed to actually be a nice day later on.
A lot of people are headed towards Boston for PAX East this upcoming weekend. If you're traveling, travel safe, and listen to some Dropkick Murpheys along the way.
I'm shippin' up to Boston! (waaaaaayooooooooo!)

Anyway, we've got another batch of bite-sized stories to share with you.

This time there's: Esper Crystals and Resin Bases for Relic Knights, Fabled Environments Launches Wild West Floorplans Kickstarter, Manorhouse Workshop Modular Underground Terrain Update #16, another nstallment of The Fiver from Meeple Mechanic, Ludus Magnus Studio Show the pladge level for Nova Aetas Kickstarter, New releases form O8 arrives at Assault Publishing, Loud Ninja Games to Release 15mm Ikwen Aliens, New 28mm Prehistoric Settlement minis from Steve Barber Models, New 25mm and 60mm Lipped Bases from Warlord Games, THMiniatures running Tabletop Terrain Kickstarter, Final Days for Going Native Kickstarter campaign, New German officer from Vepafigures, New Undead and Shaleground 40mm Bases Coming from Tabletop-Art, New Stretch Goals Announced for Faith RPG, New Egyptian Vampire Girls from Brother Vinni, and Halfsies Dice up on Kickstarter.

Ninja Division has announced the release of the Relic Knights digital enhancement app. It helps you play the game, with a full rulebook, as well as an army creator and dashboard functions. For outside of the game, the app has bunches of background fluff about the world, as well as a model gallery.

Soda Pop Miniatures has posted up their January releases for Relic Knights over on their website. There's a new unit for each of the factions, helping you bolster your forces on the battlefield.

From the release:
Soda Pop Miniatures knows that Relic Knights models have been around for quite some time and many of you picked up some sets before the game based around them was a thing. So, for those of you that have those models, but not the stat cards to go along with them, they've released their Special Edition Card Pack so you can get the stats you need to put those models on the battlefield along with all the other Relic Knights minis now available.

From the website:
Ninja Division has the latest sets for Relic Knights now available over in their webshop. Cerci Speed Circuit gets a pair of releases in the form of the Wrecker and the Pit Crew (sort of two ends of the spectrum there). The Noh Empire gets the new Render (it's a real model, not just a render), because oni with sci-fi guns is fun. Black Diamond gets a new mini-tank. I remember seeing one of these when the Kickstarter campaign stuff was coming through. It's cute. Finally, the Star Nebula Corsairs gets... well... their Corsairs box. Seems an appropriate thing to get.
