About

What game system cannot use giant insectiods? These high quality miniatures can be used with any game system. Our Steam Land-ships and human troops can be used with any Victorian Sci-fi game. Of course we do think our rules are the best, but then again we are a little bit bias.

HIVE QUEEN and COUNTRY

Oh Son's of England; for the first time since the Armada was driven from our shores an enemy has invaded our homeland.The Nation is in peril!The Enemy is most foul.However, we shall persevere; we shall avenge the Duke of Cambridge and Exeter.Arise Son's of England; the enemy is there and we shall drive the vermin from our sacred shores!

Welcome to the Hive, Queen and Country universe as envisioned by Terry Sofian and the members of the Hivequeen Yahoo! group.  Hive, Queen and Country is set in a modified   Victorian history  with a number of “conceits”; technologies that are added to increase the excitement of an already fascinating era.  Changes include economically viable space travel to Luna, Mars and Venus, as well as widespread heavy life air flight. The new worlds of the solar system are not lifeless orbs but are spheres populated with strange and dangerous life. A race of aliens inhabits Mars and has used enslaved humans to terraform that world, Venus is also home to transplanted Earthers.  And in 1892 giant "BUGS" invade England in Devonshire. Thus in this universe "Tommy" will not only face Zulus and Dervishes, but alien invaders and exotic creatures on Venus and Mars.  Luckily for our "Tommy" weapons technology is advancing rapidly under the influence of alien technology and the pressure to defend the homeland. 

Why do we need your support?In July 2013 we formed Rosa Miniatures and Games to develop miniatures for the Hive Queen and Country universe using the latest technology 3D printing.This technology provide more details and permits overhanging parts, thus you will receive "bugs" of exceptional quality. Since the Hive Queen and Country universe is played as both a table top war-game (Hive and the Flame) and as a role-playing game (Stars of Empire), our miniature line for this game will be produced in both 15mm and 25mm. At this time we need your help to move for development into production.

THE HIVE

When The Hive broke out into Devon and Cornwall in the spring of 1891 it was a threat of unknown nature and capabilities. In parallel with direct military efforts designed to contain and destroy the aliens scientists worked to study and understand them. Initially humans were able to dissect the remains of individual Hive animals and make observations about their physiology. Increased contact with the aliens brought additional data about their life cycles, both of the individual workers, warriors, queens and kings and the Hive super-organism itself. Through the entire Hive War the aliens continuously bred new warriors of increasing size and capabilities, the ability to identify these new castes became critical. Like a human society the Hive is far more than the sum of its parts and the behavior of the entire colony is what in the final analysis made the Hive such a deadly opponent.

Like terrestrial social insects the members of the Hive are divided into castes, groups whose bodies are designed to fulfill certain functions within the Hive structure. The Queen herself, and her King are members of the reproductive caste. The vast majority of Hive individuals are workers and these perform a variety of functions, from building the Hive to caring for eggs and the Queen to harvesting, growing or transporting resources. The Hive is defended and territory gained by the warrior caste; the warriors; are designed to fight the enemies of the Hive and bring them back as food. Drones and flying lancers are the pre-reproductive caste and they respectively control the field operations of other workers and warriors or act as aerial warriors and scouts. Drones are needed to control workers and warriors, without these individuals other Hive members do not cooperate effectively. The flying lancers are both deadly attackers and the long-range eyes of the Hive. Although they are not members of the warrior caste itself they fight very well.

The worker and warrior castes are further subdivided. The worker caste consists of many types from nursemaids, to diggers to tumblebugs. The warriors are by far the most individually specialized. There are almost twenty known types of warriors in several different sub-castes. Each type has different functions and each deserves to be described on their own.

The warrior caste has a large number of sub-castes. The following sub-castes have been identified: Lancers, Crushers, Choppers, Legionaries, Swimmers, Killers, Trappers and Shooters. Within each sub-caste there are usually several sizes of warrior from the numerous minors to the rare but terrifying super-majors. Each sub-caste has its own tactical role to play on the battlefield. Lancers are fast moving and hard hitting. They strike quickly, charging across open fields or from ambush. Crushers are ponderous Creatures that use large lobster-like claws to shatter their opponents. Choppers look much like enormous crickets, and they use their hind legs like powerful cleavers.

Legionaries are the most generalized of the warrior castes and are often used as scouts. They slash their enemies with mantis like appendages causing gaping wounds. Killers have enlarged heads with powerful mandibles. Eventhe smallest of these Creatures can remove a limb with a single bite. The Swimmers are aquatic and amphibious; several ships have been overwhelmed after being boarded by swarms of them. Trappers lie hidden beneath specially camouflaged traps, to strike unwary prey as it moves past. Trapper super-majors have been known to build traps that can disable an Armored Fighting Machine. Shooters are the most exotic of the warriors and the only ones that can operate without the control of a drone. They are biological volley guns, cannons, rockets or bombs. Medium and smaller shooters use the power of compressed air to launch volleys of quills. The Shooter Major and super major produce chemicals within their bodies that when mixed fire heavy projectiles from a tube on their abdomen.

Modifications of the chemical reactions used by the larger Shooters have produced Bombers, which are living shells that can run across the battlefield and detonate themselves in troop formations or against vehicles and fortifications.

Our Experimental Program.

We have been experimenting to find the best materials and printer for the job.We have determined that high resolution resins are the best material to produce high quality creatures, but we may be using an ABS plastic for tanks as this material is lower cost and the 3D printers have larger build volumes. Below is some examples of our work with 3D printers.

What Rules Can I use?

Stars of Empire (Terry Sofian)

 Stars of Empire is a hard science science fiction role playing game in which the Victorian Powers have discovered space flight and are striking out across the vast darkness of interplanetary space. As they explore frontiers on Earth, Luna, Mars and Venus, they encounter transplanted populations of humans, ancient and terrible alien races, and ferocious exotic beasts. Until 1892 each considered the other Great Powers to be their biggest rivals. It was in that year The Hive broke free in Devon and threatened more than just the balance of power on Earth. The Hive put the very existence of mankind at stake.  

The Victorian in Our Time Line was a period of exploration and scientific achievement, military conflict and colonial conquest and social upheaval. In Stars of Empire aerial and space travel have been cleverly grafted into this historical fabric. Players will be able to interact on not only Earth but other worlds as well.   Mars is home to a race of ancient aliens, powerful dangerous and unpredictable to the minds of men. Their true powers and purposes are shrouded in mystery. It is know that for many thousands of years they have harvested humans from Earth for use as slaves. With this human workforce Mars has been transformed from a lifeless rock into a tropical greenhouse of a world. Venus, beneath its thick atmosphere is a strange mix of dark basalt plains and humid cloud forests.

Stars of Empire is a stand alone game book. It contains the core role playing rules, and a detailed and dangerous universe setting. Rules include character generation, combat and detailed sections allowing characters to develop engineering projects, scientific theories or inventions.

Hive and the Flame (Terry Sofian)

BEST SCIENCE FICTION GAME SUPPLEMENT 2011! as voted by the membership of The Miniatures Page.

In The Hive and the Flame, alien invaders meet the thin red line of the British army. Using the well-tested Sword and the Flame British colonial game engine and Eight Hundred Fighting Englishmen's mechanics for larger scale battles, The Hive and The Flame brings in the alien arthropods from Terry Sofian's Hive, Queen and Country setting.

Advanced Victorian technology, backed up by the guts of rough British Tommies, faces off against giant arthropods armed with claws and mandibles. Even zulus and dervishes can't match the selfless devotion these creatures show to the Hive. Can the humans, with their science and courage, match biological killing machines bred to cleanse a planet of all life? Steam-powered airships and land machines help to even the contest between the alien invaders and the soft, physically weak humans, who are badly outnumbered by the rapidly breeding creatures.

Larry Brom's original and inventive rules are smoothly integrated with both the alien menace and steampunk technology. Rules and background are included for numerous insectoid invaders, as well as many new weapons and technologies for the Imperial defenders.

The Sword and The Flame and/or Eight Hundred Fighting Englishmen is required to use this product.

Other Rules (Adaptability):

What game system cannot use giant insectiods? These high quality miniatures can be used with any game system. Our Steam Land-ships and human troops can be used with any Victorian Sci-fi game. Of course we do think our rules are the best, but then again we are a little bit bias.

Investment Plans and Breakdown.

Risks and challenges

Risk and Challenges

Our greatest challenge at this point is going to be producing the miniatures quickly: 3D printers offer superior detail but are fairly slow. Currently there is a two to four month backorder wait time on the desired 3D printers; there is not a lot we can do to overcome this. One possible solution is to produce some items such as tanks on ADS printers. Our prototypes were done on ABS based machines, but in order to get them to come out the machine guns, 6 pdrs and some railings will need to be increase in size slightly. Our Tank artist Dan has been very detail oriented and accurate and we are loathed to ask him to change scale even though it is really not noticeable.
Another alternative to speed production is to do some other miniatures by injection molding. The human infantry is a good candidate for this. We would produce the complex mold using 3D printers. If we do take this route the miniatures will be less expensive to produce and the quantity will be increased proportionally. We are dedicated to providing the highest quality and I hope that our supporters will not be disappointed.
