Jaded Noble preview render posted by Sword & Board Games

Sword & Board Games gives us another preview render with a look at the Jaded Noble.

Source

From the post:

This (Goblin) Jaded Noble has tired of all the petty politics engulfing the Eastlands of Dothmora. She has set out to right wrongs and bring evildoers to justice. Who justice?, well that remains to be seen. Does she have ulterior motives? No one is sure. Armed with her ancient two handed rune sword, it is fair to say that her justice will be swift and painful.

Stalking the lands of Dothmora, the Beast Slayer tracks her prey. Armed with her heavy crossbow and axe, she stays her targets from range or up-close and personal. The Beast Slayers skills work equally as well on battlefield targets as they do on wild beasts.

From the post:

Of the thousands of troops who marched north under the banners of Highguard during the Schism, only 273 brave soldiers survived the Battle of North Pass. These were no cowards, living only because they threw away their arms and fled the crimson field, but heroes who fought long and hard defending the Sun Standard of Highguard, the personal emblem of the royal house.

Twelve Elements of War miniatures now available for preorder

Sword & Board Games is now taking pre-orders for their new fantasy miniatures game, Twelve Elements of War.

From the announcement:

PRE-ORDERS are now AVAILABLE to order on our webstore. Pre-orders will be open until the 28th of September and close at 4:00pm AEST.

Once pre-orders have closed, will send the numbers to Maxmini for production. We will keep you up to date on the production progress.

A few things to keep in mind with the photos. The parts weren’t glued together as these are the miniatures that we are sending to be prepared and painted. All the parts fit together snuggly and the joint gaps are minimal. Any gaps you see in the reorder photos are because of the blue-tac we had holding the parts together. Some of the details will be fine and will need a drybrush or similar technique to really show up on some miniatures.

Photos of the miniatures will be replaced once painted versions are made available.

Sword & Board Games previews Arcadian Tax Collector render

Sword & Board Games has a new preview render up. This time it's for the Arcadian Tax Collector.

Arcadian Tax Collector

From the preview:

Arcadia is the Eastlands’ centre of commerce and trade. Arcadia is, without a doubt, the busiest city in all of the Eastlands. The streets are thronged with people day and night, all of them out to get a bargain or sell their wares to the highest bidder.
Whether you’re a merchant berthing your ship at one of Arcadia’s many wharfs, a small back street vendor of fruit pies or one of the major merchant princes, all know that if there is one thing you don’t do in Arcadia, it is not pay your taxes.
The Arcadian Tax Collectors walk the streets of the port city heralded by their infamous call of “BRING OUT YOUR DEBTS”. The mere sound of this call sends shivers down the spine of those business owners who have had a slow week and do don’t have the appropriate taxes ready for collection.

Failure to pay taxes will lead to the business owner being sold into slavery and their business holdings possessed by the shadowy Liquidators on behalf of the Lord of Arcadia.

Off with their heads

Sword & Board Games has a new preview render up. This time it's the Executioner.

Executioner

From the post:

Cloaked in mystery, it is said the Executioner travels the regions of Dothmora dispensing justice where it is needed most. The Executioners story has turned into something of a folklore legend with sightings all over the continent at approximately the same time.

In battle she speaks not a word, hefting her double handed axe with ease and agility, with some warriors saying at a speed that seems almost supernatural.

It is an insane or perhaps misguided Warband commander who deliberately seeks out her services. The ones that are successful, truly have a spirit of death in their midst.

Sword & Board Games didn't fund their 12 Elements of War Kickstarter. But all is not lost.

From the announcement:

Hi All,

On the 22nd our Kickstarter ended unsuccessfully.

Instead of focusing on the negatives, let’s focus on the positives. George Edward Woodberry once said “Defeat is not the worst of failures. Not to have tried is the true failure”.

From out of the gloom comes a ray of light. I was contacted by a party from within the industry who wishes to remain anonymous regarding Twelve Elements of War. I am able to show you a snippet of what they had to say.

Sword & Board Games cancels Twelve Elements Kickstarter for retooling

Sword & Board Games has cancelled their Twelve Elements of War Kickstarter campaign in order to move a bit further along with the development and expand capabilities of the company.

From the update:

Hi All,

I wish I had a cheerier note for first thing in the morning.

It has become clear to us here at Sword & Board Games, that meeting the high levels of expectations this game has drawn, is going to be very difficult.

The Kickstarter campaign and the interest it has developed, has made clear to us that those who want the game would like it to be more realized than we currently have it, and we are receiving contact from retailers who would like levels of stock which we just cannot provide at this time.
