James Griffiths, the owner and lead designer of Infamy, has published a video showing off some of the plans for the coming year, taking us back to the Big Smoke and possibly beyond.
Mini-Kickstarter Appears From The Smoke
The first announcement is for an upcoming mini-kickstarter to help create a new background book to further explore Infamy: Welcome To The Big Smoke.
This will build upon the existing background book which went out as an exclusive to backers of the last Infamy Kickstarter.
Griffiths says that this one will feature a lot more in the way of stories and artifacts and that the mini-kickstarter they are planning may also help produce a deck of steampunk themed playing cards.
The art for a new model also looks to be on the cards, a steampunk interpretation of Wild Bill Hickok.
Wild Bill was a famous American folk hero and gunslinger, whose death while gambling provided the basis for the infamous “dead man’s hand” draw in poker.
Infamy are planning to produce this model in both a large and usable game scale, making it a good collector’s piece.
Infamy have also announced that the 15th of April is going to be their 5th year anniversary (que humorous party blower).
To celebrate, they are putting together a special selection of pieces that they are calling the Anniversary Infamy Ton.
This will include large scale editions of classic models,
The new Quaker model,
A special large scale, anniversary only alternate sculpt Dr Watson,
As well as early access to future models.
At £100, this is pretty hefty set of stuff, but does allow you to get your hands on some fairly nice sculpts, as well as possibly getting in early on this mysterious new project Infamy have teased.
It looks as though Infamy will be bringing characterful sculpts to a new setting.
Do you want to see more from Infamy? What do you expect we could see from these new figures?
