Widower’s Wood is now live on Kickstarter and the team at Privateer Press have pushed through their first stretch goal and are now looking towards more heroes and creatures for their world of Iron Kingdoms adventure…
Have you backed this game yet?
The Core Game
The base game of Widower’s Wood sees you playing as a group of unlikely heroes looking to preserve their homeland. You’re all considered to be monsters by many but it’s time to show what the folks of the wilderness are really like…
“In the dark wilderness of the Iron Kingdoms, an ancient evil stirs. Led by a merciless witch doctor, an army of sinister creatures and terrifying beasts plot to awaken a long-forgotten terror. Should they succeed, the lives and homes of countless swamp-dwelling tribes will face a fate worse than death.
As the inhabitants of Widower’s Wood find themselves trapped in the grim maw of ghoulish horrors, their last hope is a team of ravenous monsters with the cunning and ferocity to bite back.”
The villains of this piece are looking just as interesting. I love the look of these miniatures and it’s a real testament to the world of Hordes that it can provide tabletop gamers with such diverse creature designs to enjoy. Which will you most enjoy hunting?
Inside the main game you get…
- Campaign Guide with 7 Linked Adventures
- 43 Plastic Figures
- 4 Hero Character Sheets
- 202 Cards
- 202 Tokens and Markers
- 8 Dice
- 16 Map Tiles
- Game Board
- Villain Reference Sheet
…and they already have plans for an expansion which will be produced with help of the Kickstarter. This takes the form of Dead Men Walking.
Inside this expansion you’ll get…
- Campaign Guide with two 3-chapter campaigns
- 21 Plastic Figures
- 38 Cards
- 20+ Tokens and Markers
- 8 Map Tiles
…which of course means more game time and more adventures to play out with your adventurers.
It wouldn’t be a Kickstarter without some stretch goals and therefore we have a peek at two of them. The first has already been unlocked and the second is being closed in on by backers.
It’s interesting to see some more humans being dropped into the mix and while the models look good from what we’ve seen I can’t wait until we get a peek at what Trollbloods will be taking up the mantle of adventurer.
