I looked at their site and the KS and am still not sure what my options are for buying that winged serpent. Is it available in resin?

Yes, based on the Kickstarter description it will be available in resin (and only in resin; smaller figures in the KS appear to be in metal) - it's under Elemental Beasts about halfway down: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/diehardminiatures/diehard-miniatures-wizards-and-their-magics/description

And a very nice sculpt it is too!

Thought I'd update this.

The game has released with the Aztecs and Tribal Nations. Unfortunately, Covid hiccups and lockdowns in the UK messed with some of the initial production and delivery from Warlord, so some of the units for the initial release were delayed from December to January.

Meanwhile, the Monstrosities for the Maya and Inca have been previewed:


Maras, for the Inca


Camazotz, for the Maya

If I wasn't so deep into the war games I already have or had an RPG group I know would want to play Totems of the Dead, I'd probably be in. Totems of the Dead basically being an Americas companion to something like Conan the Barbarian's Hyboria. I thought the setting was quite refreshing to the standard Euro-centric stuff fantasy usually does as well as very well done for a very niche pen and paper rpg. I especially liked the idea of using Native American mythology (which too few U.S. Americans know all that much about) that would otherwise feel very out of place in a typical D&D game.



I don't see me having the time to paint up the minis nor the opportunity to make much use of them. I hope it does well as I want to see what more the line add for the North American side of things.

During the summer lock-down I started painting a 40+ unit Inuit warband. When people asked what I was painting them for, I replied, "For some future rules, because I am going to start only painting things I want then find games for the models." And like enlisting the aid of an Angakkuq the design team has worked their magic and created a world to house my models.

I am all in $$$ for Tribal Nations and will be ecstatic if we can eventually make a little side trip to the visit the Maori. Vikings yes, I mean who else will fight Inuit forces for dominance over Greenland? When we get to India I already have some magnificent elephants but am all over multi-armed deity display piece models.

Paradigm for a happy relationship with Games Workshop: Burn the books and take the models to a different game.

Man these look seriously cool. Probably won't ever have a chance to play the game but I could see myself getting some of the models for other systems.

There is a lot wrong with this, but I will settle for pointing out that it does not reflect well to criticize people's knowledge of another people's mythology and in the same sentence lump together the mythology of thousands of years and two continents into one category.

Now those are some pretty nice looking monsters.

Wonder how big they are. For the products already on the webstore, the listing helpfully states that they're 28mm figures...

Besides, I'm pretty sure most people across for instance Europe nowadays are more familiar with Thor as being that good-looking superhero who's friends with the Hulk than the guy who once dressed up as a bride to marry a giant in order to get his hammer back, Greek/Roman gods are barely known beyond their names or the role they played in Disney's Hercules, and Celtic mythology is all but ignored in most of the mainland as far as I'm aware.

celtic mythology on the mainland are from the Asterix Comics

anything else is tricky at best anyway as a lot of stuff was destroyed during that time were some people wanted to change history to having an all germanic heritage (and wrote up fake history to make sure the others are the bad guys) and we still haven't fully recoverred from that

While I don't have any example of those monstrosities , I did a little searching around and found examples of the Aztec and Tribal Nations monstrosities next to regular infantry:

Quetzalcoatl, from Discord

Yeah, I think I mentioned my interest in India as a faction in Mythic Asia, and I wonder what else would be included. Japan and China, definitely. Mongolia for a mounted faction, like the Normans in SAGA? And how far west will that expand - will it include Persians?

I'd bet the Maori would be in Mythic Earth, which I'm assuming is the "other cultures we didn't get" book.

Cheers, I think it's safe to say that once we know the price of the new ones, that should give a pretty good indication based on these. Certainly no small critters!

I'm going to go on ahead and put Paymasters link in here.

https://www.paymastergames.com/

They have these types of miniatures, and more that people are asking for in here. As to the setting, I'm all in.
I'm devoting around 500.00 to this game, and i haven't even played it yet. These figures themselves sold me, and can do double duty in Shadows of Brimstone, and in Dungeons and Dragons.


Warlord has hit another one out of the park, and the figures themselve3s have a style that I can't put my finger on,. but are comfortable in their look that they look like a real fun time to paint. Even in batches of three or four, they look like a good time.

Congratulations, I haven't been this excited for a new game in a while that I am for this one. Great Job!!

A question- How do these figures stack up and size with Copplestone figures from their High Adventure Range?
You know the only thing missing then would be a couple of Dinosaurs and a Giant Gorilla ...

At Games Workshop, we believe that how you behave does matter. We believe this so strongly that we have written it down in the Games Workshop Book. There is a section in the book where we talk about the values we expect all staff to demonstrate in their working lives. These values are Lawyers, Guns and Money.

Teaser for one of the next factions, the Chachapoya.



And faction symbols. Clockwise from top left: Tribal Nations, Chachapoya, Aztecs, Maya, Taino, Inuit, Tribal Nations expansion (west/northwest), and Inca.

Had a chance to check out the rulebook and some of the minis in person this weekend, as Mythicos Studios is a store thats local to me. Looks pretty neat, considering maybe tossing some bones into the game.

“This is the way” (or similar) has likely been used by religious or cultural institutions for thousands of years across every inhabited continent. Disney doesn’t get to own it.

Still, Warlord’s timing is unauspicious.

From what I have gathered chatting with designers, "The Way" was already a fluff/mechanical aspect of the game before Mandalorian premiered, but "This is The Way" came after as a bit of a tongue-in-cheek homage.

Can't say I blame them lol

I collect:

The units for the game are/will be sold separately, so you'll be able to pick it up when it's released.

Those were-jaguars and condor riders are looking particularly nice! Awesome dynamic poses on the were-jaguars, particularly. And the condors look suitably huge.

Well if you believe the history channel (The curse of Oak Island), then the Incas travelled up to the Inuit area to bury all their gold when the Spaniards came to loot South America

don't you know that they traveled back in time? they wanted to get to ancient Persia but forgot to calculate the earth spinning backwards so they ended in South America
this is also why you find artifacts of ancient Rome there, because some Italians joined them
