Rising Sun Beasts & Monsters Show Up From CMON

February 5, 2017 by brennon

The world of Rising Sun is coming to the tabletop later this year with a Kickstarter launching in March. The previews from CMON really have hotted up for the models involved with the project and the recently showed off lots of monsters…

River Dragon #1

One of the big models which will be showing up as part of the game is this utterly magnificent River Dragon. We knew the Blood Rage miniatures were impressive but this is taking things to a whole new level. It’s hard to tell scale but I’d imagine you’re going to need a fair bit of box space for one of these.

Slightly smaller in scale, we also have the Oni.

Oni #1

While smaller I would say that they are no less impressive. In some cases, I think they are even more fascinating and I particularly love the idea of seeing someone paint up these with their bright red skin against equally vibrant colours.

While the Oni above is the Oni of Blood they come in various flavours with this next one being wedded to the idea of Spite.

It’s nice to see that the Oni are taking on various forms with the first being a very typical representation that you might have seen in other games.

There’s some amazing stuff on the cards for this game and I think that the Kickstarter is going to be one of those that explodes, much like Blood Rage did. Hopefully, we get to see some good gameplay videos when the campaign launches (or indeed before) to give us an idea of how this gorgeous game plays.

What do you think of these particular monsters?
