Mythic Games have announced their new project! You can check out the teaser trailer for it above but prepare for some swashbuckling with Robert E. Howards’s Solomon Kane.
The crew at Mythic Games will be bringing you a miniatures board game where you will play as Solomon Kane and comrades as they slay deadly beasts, terrifying monsters and right unjust wrongs. We even got a rather awesome and early look at some of the miniatures they’re going to be bringing to life!
As you can see they have very much kept with the iconic image of Solomon Kane, presented with his pistol and sabre plus the broad-rimmed hat. Of course, you’re going to need some monsters to fight and Mythic has shown off one of the big creatures you’ll be fighting with this terrifying spectre…
This little diorama here shows off an awesome scene on the streets of some beleaguered city. For those who want to know about scale, the proposed size is 32mm, so they should have room for plenty of nice detail work.
Some of the artwork that has been previewed for the game is also very impressive and shows off the kinds of environments that you might find yourself in during the game…
The team really are pushing the boat out for this one and it will be interesting to see how this translates into a miniatures-based board game. I would assume we’re going to get some very plush looking tiles and the addition of some 3D terrain elements maybe too?
I think I’ll finish off on my favourite piece of concept art from the ones we were shown. It shows off Solomon Kane duelling with the beast you saw in miniature form above…
There is a wealth of Solomon Kane adventures for them to draw from thanks to Robert E. Howard so fans of his adventures are no doubt going to have no shortage of opportunities to take to the tabletop.
If you’re interested in finding out more about Solomon Kane and its history in prose then you can check out the Wikipedia entry HERE.
We look forward to learning more about the game, its mechanics and where this project is going in the future!
