First Eschaton details, Odyssey
So! We're returning with a new campaign, sooner than expected! Aeon Trespass: Eschaton follows in the same vein as the Nymphs, ie. is a miniatures-only campaign (though we may have some small Odyssey exclusives!).
What is Eschaton?
What is Eschaton exactly? It's a brand new collection of miniatures, this time focusing on our world's 'heroes' and monsters. I put heroes in quotation marks, because the Titans are brutal and dangerous, and are the good guys only by virtue of being controlled by the human Argonauts.
On the other hand, the monsters, Primordials, are pure evil. Some of them are mindless, others calculating, but all have seemingly one goal: to eradicate humanity.
As the Titans are supposed to represent strength and power, we've decide to cast them in a slightly larger scale, Heroic 35mm. This means the actual average size of the Titans, from feet to eyes, is about 37mm. This may seem like a trivial change, but those few milimeters allow us to show an unprecedented amount of detail. As with the Nymphs, each miniature will stand atop a scenic base, this time 30mm in diameter, and will come in a hand-stamped box, with an art card and certificate.
The Primordials will be cast in the same scale... but will be considerably larger. The smaller ones, like Hekaton, Labyrinthauros or Icarian Harpy, are about 60mm up to the 'neck', while the larger ones, like Temenos, Sun Descendant or the Chimera, stand as tall as 140mm. Each one will come with a 50mm or 100mm scenic base. You will have to see them, to believe it.
We'll also have some choice familiar faces... cast in 75mm scale...
Odyssey pushed back
All of this means the Aeon Trespass: Odyssey miniature boardgame has been pushed back to Q1 2019. This has always been a passion project of ours and we staunchly believe in releasing products when 'they are ready'. Kickstarter projects are a little different, but the principle is the same: we want to bring you a polished proposition and a solid timeline for production. And, last but not least, a Kickstarter campaign experience you'll never forget.
Hope you liked this small sneak peak into Eschaton, we'll have a steady stream of information coming over the next few weeks, up to release in September. I'd also like to do a small post-mortem on the Nymph campaign, share some of our fondest memories and woes and challenges we faced. I hope to have that finished by Sunday. Also, we'll have a special something next week: you'll finally be able to hear my thickly accented voice!
