Torn World has some more previews up for their game. These two are the Minotaur brothers: Riftblade and Ghost.
Great take on a contemporary, merc set of minotaurs
Just awesome. cama approves!
The more I see of this, the more interested I am. From the website, it looks like this is a boardgame with heroic-28mm minis? The minis look great, now I’m curious to see the rules. I wonder if they’ll be posted during the KS campaign?
Please, not a board game! A battle game! Something to crush all the pretenders out there!
This kind of reminds me of the comic Tellos that Image put out a decade or so ago.
Hey guys! Bit late to the party on this one … last minute KS updates and such. We’re really dialing it in over here and it’s beginning to look really, really nice.
These are 32mm miniatures. A little smaller than DUST, about the size of a reaper mini or modern fantasy-style. 28mm is what people tend to call the scale, but in reality things have gotten a little bigger nowadays. They will fit in perfectly with your tabletop game.
Grim6: The rules WILL be available during the KS. They are polished playtest rules. By that I mean that I will want your feedback and suggestions and I fully anticipate that we will tweak and revise in April. We’ll layout 11×11 style in May.
cama – lol – exactly! A battle game. a game of crushing your puny opponent into the dirt!
4tonmantis (a) cool name … love it, (b) wish I’d seen it now myself!
i’m confused…is this another KS separate from the one that’s currently going on?
Yes, this is separate. I think in hindsight butting the two Kickstarters together (one from Center Stage Miniatures, one for the fantasy skirmish miniatures-game) has introduced this confusion, so allow me to explain:
Center Stage Miniatures are carrying a Torn World line of lead-free metal miniatures. They kicktarted this in February. It’s our IP, it’s their Kickstarter and their product.
The Torn team is kickstarting “Torn Armor” 3/3.
It’s a fantasy squad-based miniatures skirmish game. There is a video of the gameplay and even a preview to the kickstarter out there (or I can link you if that helps).
Hope this explains the difference. Check out our FB wall for the core-set line-up:
Aye, I think there are two separate Torn Worlds now.
Here’s the currently live KS: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/centerstageminis/torn-world-28mm-miniatures?ref=live
Allyssa, that’s great to hear. I look forward to seeing them. It will be nice to be able to get a KS where you can read the rulebook ahead of time (ahem…)
Looking at the http://www.tornworld.com/, it looks like the KS above is minis for the RPG, and I think the KS starting on the 3rd is for a board game called Torn Armor.
The minis above are IN THE GAME 🙂
It’s a fantasy skirmish game. There is a concept of a “unit,” which can be 1 miniature (like a war golem or behemoth assault unit, even a lone hero) or up to 8 miniatures. A unit occupies a hex.
The guys above are a kickstarter only special at the $100 pledge level. They represent TWO UNITS. If a player purchases both ingame (during game set-up) and has them side-by-side on the battlefield, they fight a little stronger than when they are alone.
Because the entire game is based on Torn World lore, you get a a little background on each unit card, a little flavor text, and things like the guys above … a bit of the RPG feel, you know?
There will, indeed, be another Kickstarter for Torn World the Miniatures Game. It’s coming on the 3rd and running through March 4th.
Hey PB – March 3rd to APRIL 4th.
Otherwise that’s one helluva short KS =D
