Interesting. I like the Wardens, and some of the beasties. Overall the aesthetic is a bit too over-the-top for my style of Fantasy minis, but they look decently sculpted. Should do well!

Not my style, but overall well sculpted. I see a few models I’d grab just to paint up.

Is this a skirmish game? How many models needed per side? What’s the buy in for a playable warband?

Those are some nice paint jobs. Some of these guys are giving me early Rackham/chronopia vibes. It is clear you have a story to tell here. Congrats on all your hard work.

There is no minimum number of figures to play Chronicles. The game plays well with as few as 1 figure, or you could use an entire faction. Most of the games we play use 5-10 characters. Each faction is large enough to give some variety to the gameplay. It depends on how much time, table, and ambition you have as far as games size. The games focus on Heroes and a supporting cast of henchmen to complete game objectives. Each faction has thee starting heroes to build your warband around. The part of the rules we are still working on is the campaign and hero progression for those looking for more than a single head to head encounter game.

Good name!

There are some cool figures too, and some originality, which is hard to come by in this day in age!

Thanks for the feedback, we stepped away from a little from traditional fantasy races and we will see what people think. We have 12 factions planned and should be just as interesting if you like these.

Good to hear about the necessary number of models.

I'll be honest- I balked a bit at the price. The fact that we may not need all those models from the get go alleviates some of that feeling. In that case I can go pledge for the models I'm most interested in. Curious to see how it all plays out game- wise.

I think for a new line of models/ game system a "sweet spot" 2 player starter set with the rules and tools included is always a good way to go. Maybe something to consider further down the line? Of course if you do, then you run the risk of people wanting model X when model Y is included, so what do I know?

Poorly lit photos of my ever- growing collection of completely unrelated models!

Oh, look. Another fantasy miniature range where the males are heavily-armoured Charles Atlases and the females are skinny, big-boobed strippers. Because we didn't have enough of that already.

My thoughts exactly. Stylistic for the genre at best, parodical at worst.
Not saying the sculpts are poor quality, just that the basic designs are really generic (for me, in a bad way).

All great feedback!

Finding the right combination of figures was something we wrestled with. We probably should have done the 3 heroes and let you pick the henchmen you liked for a starter set.

Thank you for the feedback on the look. We have only heard that one other time. I would love to hear more people thoughts before we make more. We have no issues with armoring the ladies and creating more variety with the men. The huntsmen were a later design and we went for each character having a unique look. One of my favorite is the one who looks like he has not missed a meal - successful hunter!

Thanks,
JB

Some very nice models - work well in AOS / Warcry

Kiln,- You should change the Huntsman and warscreamers. Probably make them a little barbaric.

Black Sun- Warriors and Reavers could be a little different. Just leave the Daughters very sexy; They're a breath of fresh air compared to ASoIaF.

Khindred- Redo the whole thing. Best if you pick Jerusalem, Persia or Feudal China than mash em together,. Like the colors, though.

Spirit Warden- Don't change a thing. Love all of it, especially the bull.

Keep up the good work, and I hope this gets funded!

Hey Parakuribo,

Appreciate the feedback, bummer your not a fan of the Khindred. The Khindred and KoTK have complete lines in 15 mm. We have entire armies including giant war beast and war machines of over 200 models. The game is the parent game to Heroes and is called Chronicles of the Wayfarer War. So, unfortunately, we are pretty committed to the look at this point. As for the barbarians keep following for that one and we might have something up your ally.

It is always good to get a feel for what people like and what they are tired of seeing.

Thanks, JB

Is there a link to find out the material of these minis and their prices? The Khindred are the minis that interest me the most.

Thank you. Those links were very helpful. I love the designs and the artwork--does Todd Ulrich have an art book for Chronicles of the Wayfarer.

Barganrecon- Where can I find the original game? All I saw on your Kickstarter wars this and the bust, and your website doesn't show anything either.

Todd has done over 100 pieces of finished art and many more concepts for us, and he has been an irreplaceable part of our team. If you google his name, you can find his portfolio and other sites that show a lot of his work including what he has done for us. I think an art book of his work would be a great addition and easy for us to put together. I just added it to the project board.

Chronicles of the Wayfarer War was put on hold because of the number of figures we still needed to do. We have two of the armies completed which are the Knight of the Kiln and Kindred. Because of the scale, we have 15 mm troops and huge other models to interact with; It was proving to be a much bigger task than we were ready to handle. We pushed pause on it and did Heroes so people could get to know our Mythos and us. We were also puzzled as to which way we want to go with War do we cast in resin, metal or injection molded. I think due to the scope and scale injection molded is the way to go however, this is a costly direction, and it will impact the design and poses of the figures. I have to say a huge ancient bull beast versus a Siege Fortress is a cool match up, all the 15 mm troops spread around look like an afterthought. If you go to our facebook page and press photos and scroll down to older pictures, you can see some of the figures and things we were working on.

Day six of our Kickstarter, so what are we doing while we wait for the orders to come rolling in? Well, today we are working on the first of four mission objectives. These are called reliquaries and are used by the races to collect trace amounts of Pantherium. Heroes can use them to activate the enchantments on their weapons during gameplay. There is one reliquary for each faction we hope to have the Knights of the Kiln finished tomorrow.



Other objectives we have are Lairs, treasure, and Pantherium nodes. Enjoy the picture and would love to know what you think.

Size Matters

I have received a few questions and concerns about scale. Here is a quick picture to help answer that question. We made these in a 32 mm scale just so parts are clear, easy to paint and have a presence on the game table. As you can see, they are basically the same size as GW figures. When looking at the pictures consider the base and the Khindred Khan is a slightly larger and imposing figure by design.
