Yesterday a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign was started by CoolMiniOrNot to launch A Song of Ice & Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game. Talk about CMON is the same as talking about one of the most succesful enterprises who launch crowdfunding campaigns, and it is strange if their games do not get even more than one million dollars. In this they need 300.000$ as founding and, in a few hous, they surpased 500.000$, then the campaign is a success and only awaits to see how much funding amount they get and which are the miniatures they unlock.
The theme of the game is something that makes us to think that it will have a great success and will be a best seller. All is about Game of Thrones, the well known literary series by George R. R. Martin and that has been worlwide by its adaptation as television serie by HBO. But the models are based more into the books than what we have seen on the small screen. Not only CoolMiniOrNot is devoloping the game, Dark Sword Miniatures too, whom have been working in miniatures about the Song of Ice and Fire, some of them master sculpted by Tom Meyer.
In that occassion the models and painting are done by the spanish studio Big Child Creatives with Jose Manuel Palomares as head and names as Hugo Gomez, Marc Masclans, Sergio Calvo… They have done the digital sculpture of all models and the painting of the figures we could see on the campaign.
This campaign, differently as others, has only one official pledge, but you could give any other amount to have access to the Backer Kit post campaign. All cost 150$ (±130€),pledging that, you get all miniatures in the box and all the unlocked characters in the stretch goals, as we see new characters as: Sandor Clegane, Howland Reed, Roose Bolton…, alternative version of the characters who are alredy done in the main box as: Gregor Clegane, Jon Umber… and tokens for the game sistem.
The box content (without unlockables that are accomplished and athers which already left) is:
- 103 Miniatures
- 7 Infantry Movement Trays
- 1 Cavalry Movement Tray
- 1 Solo Movement Tray
- 98 Game Cards
- 62 Tokens
- 10 Dice
- 2 Measuring Sticks
- 1 Tactics Board
- 1 Rulebook
- 1 Scenario Book
There are some exclusives figures too, as it could be the “great seneschal, archimaster of the citadel” or some of the alternative versions of the charachters.
For all that, from New Art Ways we wishh all them so many success because the project is so interesting and we know a lot of people who are in it and they deserve so much success.
