    Chronicles
    The game has resumed since September 1st on the forum Alkemy. Like every year, 9 months of playing with several scenarios to play (2, 3 and 4 players), vouchers to win, qualifications for the final. The big news this year, we’ll unveil at the end of each month a new profile for the faction that won the most points during the month. So, it is the players who will directly direct the future releases, since the revealed profiles will come out in miniature. The fate is in the hands of the players :-)

    Go to the new English forum, in the “chronicles of mornea” section
    http://alkemyen.freeforums.net/

    Miniature game at the best price / quality ratio
    In early May, Alias has launched a subject on Warmania forum on various aspects around the miniatures games. More than 120 people responded and good news emerged: Alkemy comes in first to the price / quality ratio. An interesting survey on the practice of our hobby in which you have to necessarily.

    Alkemy, miniature game at the best price / quality ratio

    Chronicles of Mornea
    The chronicles are an organized game on Alkemy forum since 2010. It start at the beginning of September and last at the end of May. The players play at home, in their club, in their store, where they want, and post the results on Alkemy forum. The result of each player influences 2 levels, individually because each month the 2 best players of the month qualify for the final, and in team because the score of each player is counted within a group or a faction, according to the theme of the chronicles.

    In September, there are 3 scenarios to choose, and each month, a new scenario is added, thus giving a diversity to the players. Players can download a challenge sheet with plenty of possible options, which allows them to score, and they can replay throughout the month to improve their score. It is this score that is posted on Alkemy forum, and the best score is retained for each player.

    This year, an additional novelty, a new profile is unlocked at the end of each month, depending on the results of the players. Players indicate the faction they played when they post their result, and the faction that scored the most point at the end of the month unlocks a new profile for its faction or sub-faction. These new profiles will be future releases. Thus, it is the players who participate in the program of releases.

    There is no obligation, you can join the chronicles at any time, play from time to time, not necessarily every month, the system is free. Finally, at the end of each month, a random draw is made among the players of the month and 4 players win each month vouchers on Alkemy webstore.

    Join the chronicles on the Alkemy forum!

    Alchemist-Miniatures team has the project to launch a second crowfunding project via Kickstarter after the summer holidays, in order to finance:
    – A basic box to start Alkemy
    – Packaging of starters, blitz lists and individual blisters
    – New products to be delivered in 2018 for the birthday of the 10th anniversary of Alkemy, including a miniature sculpted by one of the original sculptor…

    Our project started at the end of 2013, our objective was that Alkemy could be sold again in store. To achieve this goal we have passed several stages:
    – Acquisition of Alkemy license
    – Design a new game format named “Alkemy Blitz” (180 points)
    – Relaunch the French community
    – Create 2 new factions (Naashti and Utopia): funding by first Kickstarter in 2015.
    – To distribute the game through by a store network.

    This last step requires a second investment and that is why we will solicit you financially by this second Kickstarter.

    Passing through a distribution network means that we produce a packaging and this entails additional costs.
    We will present our offer to:
    – Create a basic box that will allow to have “all in one” to play with friends, family, club… This one will not address to all the current players because they possess all elements to play Alkemy. The box will take up existing miniatures from the Khaliman Republic and Jade of Triad factions. This box will address new players who will be able to discover the game, and have all the game elements to start playing Alkemy.

    – Create starter boxes for one faction

    – Create “Blitz list” boxes (A starter without having to spend for the game elements that the player already owns). The faction boxes will address players who want to go further in the game by discovering new factions, new game strategies, or collecting the miniatures of their favorite faction

    – The unit sales of blister-size miniatures will allow players to vary the miniatures played and optimize their game strategy, or to complete their collection.

    This packaging represents design costs:
    – Illustration
    – Printing of different box formats

    Create game sceneries and mats included in the base box
    – Creating the design concept (illustration)
    – Printing sceneries
    – Playmat in poster form

    Translation of the game DE
    – We are going to have a partnership with a German distributor to distribute Alkemy in the German-speaking countries
    – Relook all our profile cards in GB and DE

    We don’t forget players who have supported us since the beginning of our project. The Kickstarter will be able to edit new miniatures.
    Here is a first look at a new concept: the knowledge collector for the sub-faction of Cobra Guard.

    Concepts by Benoît Dellac (left and right), colorization by Tobias (center),

    ALKEMY KICKSTARTER: 3 Crow Wind-Warriors for Aurlok Nation!
    They have been waiting for a long time. They are quick and stealthy! Movements of 5 inches for walking, 7 inches for charge attack and 12 inches for running, they possess the skills:
    - Ranger that allows a free walk per game round
    - stealthy which allows to deploy after the deployment of the opponent, and to be charged attack by opponents to 4 inches or less
    An incredible profile for moving on the battlemat, but not only. 9 life points, 4 in Reflex, 4 in Combat and 11 in Defense, they will also be good fighters with a Damage table of 2 2 2 3 3 4.

    You may even have a blitz list in 179 points with Tecum Seh, the 3 Crow Thunder-Warriors and the 3 Crow Wind-Warriors. A magnificent themed list with a troop in motion. The blitz list will be available on the KS page ;-)


    Design by Tobias

    ALKEMY KICKSTARTER: A battlemat in starter box!
    This battlemat will be include in starter box or add-on. On a “desert” theme, it will be the scene of the fighting between the Khaliman Republic and the Triad of Jade. In 24 x 24 inches (just over 61 cm), the carpet will be printed and folded to fit into the starter box. At the end of week, we’ll show you the scenery that will go with the battlemat ;-)

    ALKEMY KICKSTARTER: Litam Bint Sorhna for Sorority & Fadela !
    With the Mornea chronicles of 2016/2017 (organized game on Alkemy forum), the players unlocked the sub-faction of Khalimane Republic: Sorority & Fadela, with the first character: Litam Bint Sorhna. She is an alchemist of the outer circle, she has with her an ondin, a small creature invoked from the waters components. She has 2 formulas. The first one will target friendly djiin, genii and ondins to make them attack every ennemy within 1 inch, with no possibility to react. The second formula lets you invoke two extra ondins. 4 AP, 9 Health points, Reflex 6, Defense 12, Litam Bint Sorhna will be hard to hurt, especially if the 3 ondins are on the table !


    Concept by Louis, colorization by Stéphane Lamirand

    ALKEMY KICKSTARTER: 3 ondins !
    These creatures invoked by Litam Bint Sorhna are fragile : 6 Health points and Defense 6, but they should we able to defend themselves with Combat 3 and a 1 2 2 2 3 3 Damage Table. They are “fearless” (they ignore The frightening miniatures), and they also have the “Servant” skill that allows them to fetch the components from the table and bring them back to their alchemist. The “alchemical decline” will cause them to lose 1 Health point per round. It can be avoided if an alchemist spend an alchemical stone. The ondins are going to be a valuable help on the fights to come. :-)

    Concept by Tania Sanchez Fortun

    ALKEMY KICKSTARTER: Nas~Far’k, defender of Dal~Eth for Naashtis !
    Warning, a heavyweight hero will arrive on the battlefield ! Nas~Far’k is a Pes-Hat, a large size Naashti (size 3), as well as Choker of Dal~Eth. 11 Health pionts, Combat 6, Frightening 14, a 3 3 4 4 5 6 Damage table but this is these two skills that will make the difference. Projection will allow him once per round to perform a free combat roll in opposition to an opponent’s miniature. If successful, the difference between the two rolls will be the distance in inches that the opposing miniature will be pushed away, losing as many Health points. Provocation will allow him once per round, to target 2 enemy miniatures located at max 3 inches from him. These 2 miniatures will not be able to move any more except if they engage Nas~Far’k. Born for fighting, he will spill blood and tears across the battlefield ! The miniature will be a 3D sculpture…


    Design-prototype by Nicoleblond and Tobias

    ALKEMY KICKSTARTER: Scenery sets for starter box!
    A basin, a well, a building, 2 walls and 1 temple will constitute the 6 sceneries set that will be the starter box. Using the same graphic theme as the “desert” battlemat, they will increase your immersion to your games. This set will simulate perfectly a Khaliman Republic’s environment. These sceneries sets will be printed on thick paper (300 g) and pre-cut. You’ll just have to unpack them, the assembly will take 5 minutes.

    ALKEMY KICKSTARTER: Spume apprentice for Utopia!
    He’s an alchemist from the outer Circle. He posses 3 skills : “Feint” that allow him to change his combat card by the inactive one. This skills apply AFTER the combats card are revealed, tacital help in a lot of situations. “Mythical devotion” that allow him to “guard” (take the position of a friendly miniatures within 2 inches when targeting by a spell, a shot, a charge…) legendary hunters. He only have one formula : Nevoa that will summon a fog area (the size of a profile card). Miniatures inside the area will be hidden, only visible by the miniatures inside the area. The area cuts the lines of sight. This formula can be cast up to 6 inches away from the sprume apprentice :-)

    ALKEMY KICKSTARTER: Interview with Nicoleblond by Mellal
    They have been a lot of announcements in July at the annual final and Mellal, the winner of the final, wanted to know more about the kickstarter and about the other projects.The interview is to be read here: http://alkemy-the-game.com/interview-with-nicoleblond-by-mellal

    Concept by Benoît Dellac

    ALKEMY KICKSTARTER: Jailor for sanctified
    An elite profile for the sanctified faction. 3 AP, 10 Health points, Combat 4, a good DAM table : 2 3 3 3 4 5, Frightening 13, and Sadicstic skill. When an enemy miniature is entangled by the retarius or the sanctified alchemist’s formula, the Jailor may strike the entangled miniature freely once per round. When you know that an entangled miniature loses 2 points of Defense, the Geolier will be able to deal a lot of damage easily.

    ALKEMY KICKSTARTER: Miniatures for the Starter boxes
    Six miniatures for Khaliman Republic: Araoui, Sorhna oracle, 1 ghulam, 2 jarayas and 1 meharist. A blitz list led by the terrible Araoui, which can be played two different ways : in “diplomat” mode to play scenarios and making himself difficult for enemies to attack, or in “shooter” mode where he can shoot up to 4 times per round, up to 25 inches, and ignore 2 covers per round. At his side, Sorhna oracle with 2 formulas that will upgrade the friendly miniatures. Uchronia which allows to reroll a dice and premonition which allows to strike back even if the miniature does not posses any AP. The 2 jarayas, which are basic troops with fairly strong characteristics, the ghulam, an elite warrior with long reach and an impressive DAM table (3 3 4 4 5 6), and the meharist who is the fastest miniature in the game, walk to 6 inches, charge attack to 9 inches and ca run 20 inches.
    To face them, the Triad of Jade aligns 8 miniatures with Captain Lee-Ping, a warrior hero and his terrible sequential attack (which can cause up to 8 DAM for only 1 AP), he can kill a lot of your enemies with this skill. The formidable alchemist of the long breath, with an offensive vocation thanks to his two formulas. The enemies will be slower and will do less damages, or they will fall to the ground without being able to reply : 2 devastating formulas. To support them, four militia-lancers with the famous long reach wich will take advantage of the enemies on the ground, and the 2 militia-archers who will be able to shoot up to 30 inches.
    The miniatures will be made of plastic, they will be very easy to assemble, without glue point (except perhaps 1 or 2 khaliman tails), and will fit perfectly into the appropriate black plastic bases. Easy and quick assembly. You will be able to deliver your first game quickly. If you prefer to have painted miniatures on the table (which is always more enjoyable), again, the time should be short because those 14 miniatures to paint are all you need to play !

    ALKEMY KICKSTARTER: Toh R’ok for Waga Clan, sculpted by Allan Carrasco
    Warning ! A heavyweight hero comes in Waga Clan! Toh R’ok costs 50 points, 4 AP, a Defense of 8, a Combat of 6, a monstrous DAM table: 3 4 4 5 6 7, he cumulates leader (he always throws the white dice for initiative and can transmit his Spirit of 8 to the friendly miniatures in 8 inches around him), Tough 2 (it will reduce the DAM he takes by 2 points, always with a minimum of 1 DOM) and Rage (when it is in red life point, it acquires Expert Brutal who will give him 1 bonus die if it plays a brutal combat card). Push yourself out of the way, here is Toh R’ok! Alkemy will be 10 years old in March 2018, we asked Allan Carrasco to be able to sculpt Toh R’ok to celebrate the event. Who Says Heavyweight Sculptor of the Same Category :-)

    KICKSTARTER ALKEMY: Shipping charges
    We looked for less costly shipping solutions.
    Thus, we will propose the following shipping costs for the starter box:
    France / Belgium / Luxembourg : €6  -  Europe (Germany, Austria, Spain, Italy, Netherlands, Portugal, United Kingdom) : €10  – Other european countries / USA : €15  -  Rest of the world : €18
    If you take only few miniatures, the shipping costs will be cheaper, example:
    France / Belgium / Luxembourg: between €2,50 at €4,50  -  Europe (Germany, Austria, Spain, Italy, Netherlands, Portugal, United Kingdom) : between €3 at €5  – Other european countries / USA: betwenn €3,50 at €6,50  -  Rest of the world: betwenn €3,50 at €6,50

    ALKEMY KICKSTARTER: Sanctified alchemist
    The alchemist for the Avalonian sub-faction, the sanctified. Common statistics for an alchemist, 7 in Spirit, 3 in Reflex, 3 in Combat, he still has 10 life points. Its particularity is going to be in its competence “blood of sap”, which allows him to improve a formula by spending 1 life point instead of 2 stones. The sanctified alchemist has 2 alchemical formulas, “Sap Rise”, which makes frightening (13) friendly miniatures or himself, or increase the level of frightening, and the targeted miniature gains +1 in Combat. The second formula “grows beathacran” will create an area of entanglement effect around the alchemist. An enemy model penetrates the area suffers a Combat 4 roll, and if the defense has passed, the miniature is entangled (1 malus die at combat roll and -2 Defense).

    ALKEMY KICKSTARTER: The complete starter box!
    In Starter box, there will be: 6 khaliman miniatures, 8 triadic miniatures, the “desert khaliman” battlemat with 6 scenery sets, rulebook, profile cards and combat cards, scenario book, dice, alchemy tokens, jin posts tokens, measure tape and erasable felt. Unfold the battlemat, assemble the scenery sets and miniatures, and play the first scenario “the jin posts” with the help of the “Quick Play Guide” sheet. Once the first game is played and the game mechanisms have been acquired, you can play the campaign for 7 scenarios for 2 players or for one of the 9 scenarios for 2, 3 or 4 players.

    Concept by Louis, colorization by Sébastien Lamirand

    ALKEMY KICKSTARTER: Triadic Emissary for scenario book
    The triadic emissary will be the first miniature offered to contributors. It will be used for scenario book.
    It took time and numerous clashes so that the Celestials of the Wan Moon perceive all the interest of a corporation like that of the Sheikhs. Many spies working on their own were sufficient to provide information beyond their needs, yet immense. But what they did not do was to influence events.
    When it finally appeared to them, a school was created within the Black Magistrates, the school of the Stone on Water. There were formed the first emissaries, distant heirs of the knowledge of the astral snake. Rhetoricians and cartographers, therefore, their role is not to spy, as is often mistaken, but to create the circumstances that can give an advantage to the Empire. Thus, unlike the ambassadors and official figures, they rarely wear their extravagant outfits but prefer to dress in the black of their administration of origin.

    Jiàn Kè has taken advantage of all the teachings of her teachers, but she has added a personal touch to it. His talents enable him to pass as well for a man as for a woman. Her fellows themselves come to doubt her sex. It is only natural that she (or he) was appointed to investigate what was happening south of Coelon and to reestablish the lost smuggling counters …

    ALKEMY KICKSTARTER: Scenery set pack
    Are you not interested in the starter box? But battlemat and scenery sets interest you? You will be able to acquire the battlemat, the scenery sets, the scenario book, the objective pawns, individually or by “pack” :-)


    Work in progress

    ALKEMY KICKSTARTER: T’oh Rok sculpture by Allan Carrasco
    We talked earlier about T’oh Rok, the incredible hero of the Waga Clan. For the 10 years of the game, we appealed to Allan Carrasco to make this sculpture. The miniature will be part of a pledge “novelties” or will be accessible in add-on. No need for more explanations, the picture is worth all the long speeches :-)
