Hellenica Production Update 1

Posted by Mr. B. Games (Creator)

Hi Everyone,

Its been almost 3 weeks since our last update and we wanted to share some progress with you all.

Miniature Production is Starting

We are moving into the molds stage for the buildings and Mythic armies. We are still waiting on sculpts for some of the stretch goal monsters though as our sculptor is backed up.

AI and Governments

We have some new artwork to share (and our first components of the game are now finished!)

 The Core Game of Hellenica will feature SEVEN different government types you can switch to throughout the game. Pretty cool way to taylor your games!

The AI board has now doubled in size from our original vision. Scott wants to ensure the solo and AI deck play is top notch and there is room to track everything cleanly - so free upgrades for everyone!

Whats Next?

We are off to Europe for a few weeks for Essen Spiel 2018 (and the timing is great since our molds will take several weeks to prep which puts us in a holding pattern anyway!). Once we return, we will dive back in to the card decks and game map - then move into miniature pre-production. Looks for our next update in Mid November.

      RE - The Pledge Manager - We are waiting on some factory pricing but the primary reason we have not announced a date for the PM is the shipping rates will increase in 2019 at all major carriers and we would like to base our shipping on the most current info. We will do an update though as soon as we are ready to announce the open date of the PM

      @andre - these will be 3/4 inch tiles and the extra area is our production "bleed" - I did not trim the files down to size/scale for demo purposes. We have a mock set here and they are very readable (we are old and like big text here lol)

      Really good, can't wait to play the game. But I'm a bit concerned about the "visibility" and "readability". In my opintion text and graphics are too small on the chits, there is a big border area of ca. 50% unused. Do you see a chance to improve/enlarge that?

      Wow! Improved ai?! Thanks so much! The Ai is one of the main reasons why I backed the campaign, I mean who can resist a co-op civilization game? And you guys just made it even better! Thanks again, I really appreciate it!
