Metal King have now hit Kickstarter with their RelicBlade campaign. This is a fun looking adventure battle game where one side takes on the role of overlord of the minions within this Fantasy world while the other player sends heroes on their quest to find magical items and more…
The game looks superb with some amazingly well crafted miniatures all in 30mm scale with a good balance between the ‘heroic’ and the ‘true’. The recommended pledge level is the Bold Adventurer which gives you enough to begin playing with a friend.
One of the things that really drew me to this project was the art style. The cards all look fantastic and have a really nice old school feel to them done in black and white. All of the cards were crafted meticulously to make sure they fitted within the world of RelicBlade AND looked awesome when they were done.
While the models have been tweaked from original sketches and done in ZBrush they actually have quite the handcrafted look to them which I think most people will appreciate. By now you’re probably wondering about gameplay and you can see a video above giving you the basics of play.
The future also holds some new heroes for your adventures. See what you think of the Thief and the Dark Wanderer…
There are plans for all manner of additional heroes and monsters to clash with so I look forward to them hitting these stretch goals. No good adventure is complete without a Dragon at some point down the line so maybe we’ll see them look at giant fire breathers at some point in the future?
What do you think of this campaign?
