Fireforge Games is proud to announce a new big project:
Forgotten World, a new range of fantasy models in hard plastic multi-part 28mm scale highly customizable

WHY KICKSTARTER?
Fireforge Games has not enough resources to release togheter all the new fantasy kits, so we will ask for the help of all hobbysts to bring on the wargame and roleplay market these new figures. The campaign will be launched probably during September and we would like to show the preview of the kickstarter page during august. The release of the models if the project will be a success, should be for april-may 2019.
If the campaign will be a success, Fireforge Games has plans to release a lot more new ranges for the fantasy line.

THE MODELS
This campaign will search funds to release 2 factions: The Northmen and The Living Dead, each faction will receive 3 different hard plastic multi-part kit

The material
Plastic models will be in hard plastic (or HIPS, that it is NOT pvc plastic), is the exactly same plastic used by companies like Games Workshop, Perry Miniatures and other companies. It is the best that someone can offer for your models. Our company from birth, has always offered the best in materials. The plastic used for our kits will be made in EU, under our quality control. We avoided the production in China because we were not satisfied by the quality of the Hard Plastic offered (for example plastic HIPS lances made in china break too easily).

Scale comparison (we will try to do better pictures of cavalry models soon)

THE RULES
Togheter with the new figures, Fireforge Games is working on a ruleset to play with. The ruleset will allow you to play skirmish games or bigger regimented battles. We are in alpha working for now and the beta should be available for the launch of the campaign. We will reveal something about the rules in the future before the starting of the campaign and we will ask to people to join the beta testing to obtain a fun, strategic set of rules.

They look like a better GW size match than Frostgrave plastics are, so you might have my money.

None of the pictures seem to show for me here. I've seen them elsewhere though, and I'm looking forward to getting them. Better match to GW size, and miles better sculpting than Frostgrave plastics.

I am concerned about the size. They look pretty small and a little stumpy. I hope they reconsider scaling them up a bit to fit in better with the majority of fantasy miniatures. In particular their arms look very short and the torsos look very wide. Thankfully the heads are a big improvement over typical historical ranges.

Well they are the same size as Fireforge's other miniatures, so I doubt that would change.

The renders do look 'stumpy' but the actual miniatures shown in the scale comparison shot look quite good.

I don't think so, looking at the scale picture they showed the fireforge historical guy is on a 2mm integral base, do I think they did scale up the fantasy guys a little, just not their arms apparently.

Actually these are quite good. If you have never worn armor you do not really understand how it changes your shape.
This is me, a normal regualy propotioned guy (bit on the chubby side).




Now this is me in my armor. It makes my head look tiny and my arms a bit stumpy. This is because of the now exaggerated torso.



So for what it's worth, my opinion is that these are really well done.

These look good, interested to see what other units they come out with.

it's the quiet ones you have to look out for. Their the ones that change the world, the loud ones just take the credit for it.

While on the miniatures, the head is too big and the legs too short.

Do we have a date for the Kickstarter yet?

We are working really faster we can to launch the campaign during this summer, meanwhile here there are some prototypes assembled and painted.
Just to give you an idea: arms, heads, pouches, legs, torsos, shields, scabbards, daggers, are all separated parts and you will be able to customize these guys a lot.

This might just be the paint, but the actual models look much better than the renders. Great job.
Very interested in this KS.

and note that these prototypes are worse than the future plastic models that customers will have in their hands if the kickstarter will be a success

The painted test models are great, looking forward to the KS. Aside from the basic troops, archers, and cavalry, what other human models do you have in the pipe?

Very excited for some modern/good quality basic humans for medieval/fantasy settings, my AoS Freeguild could use some reinforcements.

Those look really good! I love how they scale. I woudn't mind your historical sets done in the same way!

Imo from the pictures / renders alone these are without a doubt the best looking mini's you have designed!

Those miniatures look properly amazing, I'm getting some, no doubt ( unless the price is outrageous, like GW-outrageous )
They are "classic" enough to leave room for customization, but characterful and design-y enough to have an aesthetic of their own.

Multiparts, weapon options, command, and extra bits ? You guys sure know what people want !!!

Promising kit ! the waiting will be painful

The painted prints look good. Hopefully this is a fast turnaround kickstarter, I'm feeling less and less willing to wait around for several years for delivery.

What other factions are going to be part of the game / world?

Are we talking standard fantasy races here, or is it going to be another "Humans, some weird elves, and some bizzaro custom faction like evil squirrel men" kinda world?

They’ve said the starter set is Northern humans against “plagued” humans name TBC (cough not starks v white walkers army). 3 HIPS kits for each and some presumably resin characters. So northern humans get Infantry, Archers and Cavalry assuming the archers are separate to the infantry and aren’t an upgrade set.

I definitely want a few boxes of each Northern humans mixed with Frostgrave Barbarians will give me a nice KoW Northern Alliance army. I’ll give Forgeforged games rules a look but it’s not a priority for me.

- The project of our Forgotten World starter set is going forward without delays.We planned to launch the kickstarter during this summer, but if we will go to August as the month when we will have all ready, we will launch the campaign for September avoiding the holiday month.

The starter set will contain rules to play a regimented or a skirmish game, with a set of statistics to use also other classical races like orks, elves and dwarfs for example.

All the figures done have a lot of separate parts like scabbards, quivers, heads, arms, shields, puches, daggers, torsos, bodies, legs... you will be able to customize a lot your figures if you will want.

Any set will contain a command frame to let you assemble 3 figures for each set like a command option with banners, musician and leader and with more options to customize your models.

The human faction of the Northmen will have:
1) set of warriors: you will be able to assemble on every 12 models, all with swords, all with spears and up to 6 with two handed spears.
2) set of bowmen: you will be able to assemble on every 12 models, 12 guys with normal arrows or 6 with flaming arrows
3) set of cavalry: you will be able to assemble on every 6 models, 6 knight lancers or 6 knights with sword

The Living Dead will have
1) set of civilian plagued: a set with civilian now living dead between female and male models with different weapons
2) set of soldiers plagued: a set with different type of human soldiers from different kingdoms with different armours now living dead
3) set of horsemen plagued: a set of soldiers like above

We'll find out soon enough eh.

Oh my, I really, really hope they go for a more traditional "shambler" concept for these "Plagued" models - it'd be sooooo good to finally have a modern, well-scaled, good-looking fantasy zombie plastic kit.

I know Mantic did one, but it's a bit "28 Days Later" for my taste, and they don't look that great next to "heroic" scaled models IMO.

I need to acquire plastic Skavenslaves, can you help?
I have a blog now, evidently. Featuring the Alternative Mordheim Model Megalist.
