Hey Everyone,

Less than a week remaining on our KS campaign. We thank you all so much for backing our project. 

You probably already know that Project: ELITE features large cool looking minis. But how large? 

Today's update is all about size so let's check out the size of various miniatures in the game. You may want to find a ruler or measuring tape :)

 Characters

Most games come with small Character/Hero/Player miniatures. In Project: ELITE however, Character miniatures are pretty big. The game requires that you grab those miniatures all the time moving them around. You wouldn't be able to do that with tiny little minis. That's why this game's Characters average 40mm/1,57 inches in height! They sit on 32mm/1,25 inches bases.

 Soldier Aliens (Base Game)

The shortest of them all are the Runners with 28mm/1,1 inches. They are however the longest measuring 41,4mm/1,61 inches long. Shooters are 40mm/1,57 inches tall and Biters are 45mm/1.77 inches tall! They sit on 25mm/1 inch bases

 Special Aliens

All Special Aliens sit on 32mm/1,25 inches bases (except the Spawning Egg)

Slime Spitter is 34mm/1,33 inches tall.

Hound 30mm/1,18 inches tall.

Strider is  42mm/1,65 inches tall.

Time Walker is 34mm/1,33 inches tall.

Time Bender is 48mm/1,88 inches tall.

and the Spawning Egg is 25mm/1 inch tall and has a 45mm/1,77 inch base.

Bosses

All Bosses stand on 40mm bases!

Thrustar is 54mm/2,12 inches tall.

Acidox is 48mm/1,88 inches tall.

Roachoc is 51mm/2 inches tall.

Crushox is 62mm/2,44 inches tall.

Ductar is 51mm/2inches tall.

Phobos is 52mm/2,04 inches tall and 75mm/2,95inches long!!

Plague Bringer is 55mm/2,16 inches tall.

Penda'a'gon is 55mm/2,16 inches tall.

Mega-Bosses

All Mega-Bosses stand on 45mm/1,77 inch bases!

Caristar is 135mm/5,3 inches tall!!!

Therion is 100mm/3,9 inches tall!!

Turtalon is 125mm/4,9 inches tall!!

So what do you guys think ? Any comments on the sizes? :)

Finally, we have revealed our 160k stretch goal which is a new fearsome Boss! Calarook! This Boss is as fast as a runner, has 6 life and the ability to regenerate! Unless you kill it, it will go back to 6 life in the next Round. This is a very dangerous foe!!

We hope you like what you see so far. We are so excited about Project: ELITE. No matter how many videos we make, they don't even begin to describe the excitement, intensity and fun you will experience when you play yourself.

Thank you very much!

The Project: ELITE team.

      I love the new boss. Regeneration totally needs to be a thing.

      Speaking of which, here's a boss idea for you: a super regenerating boss that regenerates 1 every time you shoot it. It would have to have a relatively smaller health pool so it's not too insane. Obviously, you just wouldn't be able to take it down with a lot of guns that only do 1 damage at a time. But that could be what makes it really hard. Probably make it move slowly too, so if the players don't even have a long-range gun, they have a chance to swap out for one.

      >> I am not really sure that you can call those mega bosses miniatures at all. 4-5 inches tall... that's bigger than most action figures!

      Actually here in Artipia we call them Gigatures.

      Whilst it is a slight shame not to be able to use the character minis in other games, I can see the reasons for making them a touch larger for gameplay purposes (of this game) and that should be the main focus IMO.

      Great! hopefully I can paint em better that way! :D
      Bigger = more detail

      Only suggestion is some sort of reference in the images, like a coin or standard size dice. I'm sure we can picture it, though. :)
