Miniature progress... :)
Minis, minis, minis... oh, and we also have some minis...
Well, it's been all about the miniatures for the last few weeks and they've been coming thick and fast. Now we have a few in the hand we thought we'd show you some up close.
We've done a video below so you can have a good look at some of the latest ones, but we also have more... they are currently being painted so did not have them at hand for the video. We do have some renders and photos though so all good :oD
Here's the video look at the ones we do have...
So what else have we got that's cool...
First off we have that cool Metropolitan Pack with those hardy folk who scratch a living each day in the Core Space galaxy, never knowing if this will be the day they are swept up by a mindless Harvester or hoodwinked into joining a band of traders on some foolish mission.
Below are the drawings we did while the Kickstarter was running...
Then we have them all nicely sculpted and ready for table top tremendousness.
The Metropolitan Pack minis are currently being painted up ready for some serious gaming at the UK Games expo in June. We'll show you some nice pictures of those when they come in.
Next we have the Female Galactic Guard. She's sporting the regulation Energy Rifle and holding a riot grenade. This is a snap shot from the 3D software of the finished model.
Same again here, but this time the Galactic Guard with Energy Pistol, this one's also in the video above.
With a face that looks like he's had one to many visits with the surgeons on Nexu'ak Outpost, Captain Sondar is ready for action in this render below. He's actually happy, but his face is incapable of smiling :)
All the weapons in Core Space have been designed by us with a rich lore behind them. They perform in the game based on their design and we've given careful thought to their history, value and availability to the traders of your crews. All of the weapons sculpted on the minis can be found amongst the equipment tokens in the game.
We had the weapons sculpted separately before any of the minis so that they can be handed to our sculptors for the characters to hold. Sondar above is holding a P-11 Military Pistol.
For fun we we took one of the weapons (a machine pistol) and printed it at a much larger scale... looks very nice.
This pistol can be found in the hands of many of our minis, from Director Zool to Captain Weis. With 3 combat dice at short range it's one of the few pistols with 3 attack dice that is not a rare item and so can be purchased between missions... if you have the assets to buy it :)
Don't forget, Backerkit locks down on Saturday 31st March. We'll post a reminder before then.
Late backers can now jump in using our handy dandy pre-order page (if you're already a backer/late backer just use the link already provided).
All the sets and add-ons cost the same as regular backing including the shipping and all the free stretch goals are included if you get a Core set:
Let's Play - Prison Break!
If you missed it there's a nifty Let's Play vid posted by Beasts of War a few days ago:
For those of you who are regular visitors to our shows we should let you know that we will not be attending one of them. This year we decided not to exhibit at Salute for two reasons. Firstly, the stand size has become too small for our ever increasing range (we will try to attend next year providing we can grab a larger stand size).
Also, with Core Space being a new venture incorporating new production challenges we thought we could use the 3 weeks of preparation time more wisely and it's paying off well so far :oD
We will be at the UK Games Expo as usual on the first weekend in June. There we will be demonstrating Core Space so if you can make the show come over for a game or two... or three ... we'll have the largest stand we have ever had so it should be a blast :)
That's about it for now, time to jump back into the pre-production emails and Skype videos that dominate this stage of the process and of course... play some games of Core Space...
Over and out for now...
Colin & Wayne :)
