A brand new science fiction miniatures game full of over the top anime action!

Relic Knights ™ Darkspace Calamity is a fast-paced strategy battle game by Soda Pop Miniatures and published by CoolMiniOrNot, for 2 or more players, pitting the heroic forces of the Relic Knights against each other in a battle for survival and the fate of the galaxy

Take control of one of 6 factions with wonderfully detailed miniatures, as you use a unique card draw mechanic to power your special abilities and defenses!

Each game lasts about an hour for the Faction Starter size, and how you manage your abilities and resources (represented by the Esper Cards) will determine the fate of the universe! Bluff your way to victory, or hide your strength till the critical moment - it's fast paced strategy and anime action!

Made from high grade plastic, each wonderfully detailed miniature demonstrates the craft and care that Soda Pop Miniatures has put into bringing its anime themed world alive with its highly detailed heroes, minions, monsters, and machines that make up the Relic Knights Universe.

Augment your forces with heroes and warriors to fight even bigger battles, as the universe of play expands. Easy to collect, fun to play, wonderful to paint, Relic Knights has something for everybody.

They picked up $70k on the first day, so this game WILL be a reality, just like Zombicide and Sedition Wars. Four out of the Six factions are available, and in couple of days the other two will be available. Go the the page and watch the video. Looks VERY interesting.

Very interesting. Very nice models and pics of miniatures not sure if my cup of team. Again, artwork and design are nice and I am sure most Anime lovers will buy this just to collect.

A+ on design.

Why can't GW make female guardsmen or give us other cool ad ons to convert our models??

Now that is a nice mini...

Dam I am tempted only thing putting me off is the fact we pay now but have to way till May 2013 before we get the game.

Why so dam long.... I mean its frustrating but in away it would be good, as my current miniature work load is huge I might actually have it all done by then.

and then could deal with this game.

just watched the Vid and it's interesting a DICELESS game... I'd want to see more of the game engine before I invested into it. But it looks cool from What I can see. And I do love the Soda Pop Miniatures. The Super Dungeon Explore minis are great and the Relic Knights look even more amazing.

I'll watch this one with interest but even a quick look now and I'd be nearing $150USD [$100USD 2 Faction starter pack, $25USD International Postage, $25 Fiametta and Hasami add on]




Dam that is a quick way to spend $200NZD.... AARRGGHHH dam kickstarter...

I agree with DaBank on this one... this game is VERY tempting, but I'm no longer a Manga buff. I used to be, around 20 years ago. DAMN... I'm old! Anyhow, the models are gorgeous, but not a perfect fit for me.

Like LGW, I have my budget on KS and I pledges. As a matter of fact, in the last few months I have put more cash there than I had on GW stuff on the last 3 years. I think all this Crowd Funding should send them a BIG message. There IS money out there to be picked up... just do it fairly! They can figure out EASILY how much it would cost them to produce a new series of models, how many they have to sell and at what price to pay for the production.

Let's say (for example) that they want to release Pre-Heresy Primarchs as a series. A true-scale, larger than life collection of some Primarchs. How much for the sculpts? How much for the molds? The collection could be 10 of the 18 Primarchs... for $150. The goal could be $40,000 and then ADD Primarchs as stretch goals. At the end, you could have for $150 all 18 Primarchs in plastic (or Failcast... AGHHH!!!) with a Certificate/Art of authenticity with YOUR name on it... and for some extra cash, you could have some Post-Heresy Primarch (who would not put cash for The Emperor in full combat gear or for Horus during the Heresy? I would!)

Anyhow... I will watch this KS!



PS: True Female IG? Shut up and take my money! I don't want sexy babes in bikinis-passing-as-armor... but sexy babes in REAL armor.

Well I joined this project.

They have unlocked all 6 factions now and the are still trucking along nicely.
I'll get the Doctrine faction not sure on the 2nd one. Didn't add any additional minis I'll do that once I get the final email.

Cheers

Each faction offers different attacks, and defences,

Also each faction utilizes a different coloured primary energy and two secondary types of energy. [Orange, green,blue, yellow, etc etc]
example one faction may have Orange[ I think its called Chaos] and then could have yellow and green as its secondary types of energy.

Each player draws 5 cards. These cards are used to power your special attacks and defences.
Each card will have A main energy type [large circle which gives you 2 points of energy] and a secondary colour [small circle which gives you 1 point of energy]

so an attack/defence may cost you 1 yellow and three green. [which can be done with a primary yellow 2pts, a secondary yellow 1pt, and a secondary green 1pt. note: you could also use two primary yellows and the extra point of energy is simply discarded and not used.]

In away the way the cards work much like the way the Mana land cards do for Magic the gathering and the skills used are similar way as MtG.

so with this game there are no DICE rolls. its all down to the cards. if you inflict extra damage you may be able to draw extra cards thus gaining a chance to use more skills.

There are different stats that are used. Movement is pretty basic with the following set up:
Movement 5/4 would mean they can move 5" normally but 4" after they have used a special skills/attacked or defended.

still trying to find out more info but that is what I got so far.
