About this project
Welcome to DGS Games Kickstarter Project called the Urdaggar Tribes of Valor (UToV). This exciting project is focused on rapidly expanding DGS Games extraordinary line of 32mm fantasy miniatures. This project’s main objective is to fund the creation and production of 6 new fantasy miniatures for use in our tabletop skirmish game Freeblades. Your backing will take these 6 miniatures from artistic concept to masterful sculptures to production molds from which are spun endless hordes of fierce Urdaggar warriors for customers to purchase.
The 6 Urdaggar miniatures we seek your support to produce are the: Wolfkarl, Berserker, Night Hunter, Slinger, Hunter and Unproven.
The Wolfkarl is a mighty warrior who has gained following among his people. He has shown leadership and promise as someone the tribes may look to in times of conflict. His deeds in combat have earned him the admiration and loyalty of the henchmen in his freeband and they will follow him into the bloodiest of conflicts.
Clad in the pelt of a Dire Wolf and chain mail despoiled from a vanquished foe, a Wolfkarl leads his freeband in raids and clashes against the civilized southern kingdoms of “Houseborn.” With power and grace, his mighty two-handed wolfsword hews his opponents as his awesome battle cry calls his brethren forward to overwhelm enemies. A Wolfkarl fiercely defends his tribal lands from incursions by others, ensuring his people live in freedom.
The path of the lone warrior is a special calling among the elite Urdaggar warriors. Filled with battle rage, the Berserker ignores all danger and becomes a whirling dealer of death, attacking viciously and repeatedly until his opponents are vanquished.
Berserkers rise from among the young warriors of a tribe by being fierce killers, repeatedly demonstrating prowess in battle. A Berkerser joins a Wolfkarl to protect his way of life and fight for the freedom of the Urdaggar. With razor sharp dire claws, he shreds any foes, dealing damage swiftly any time he senses a threat. A Berserkers weapons are renowned throughout Urdaggar lands, and it is always wise to steer clear of these evisceraters even when their bearer is in a foul temper.
The Night Hunter is the ultimate scout and huntress. He or she stalks her quarry from a great distance and brings them down unawares using stealth and uncanny marksmanship. The owl wing tattoos covering her eyes are the distinct mark of her trade.
A Night Hunter works in advance of the rest of the freeband, scouting the way and locating their enemies. Once she spots the enemy, she reports their position to the Wolfkarl then deploys for action. Her talents are picking off unwary enemy scouts and others who have strayed too far from the protection of their friends. She is also excellent in support of her brethren picking her openings in an enemy battle line and striking swiftly when she spots a weakness to exploit.
No Image exists yet as DGS Games is looking to create the concept art for this exciting miniature through this project.
Slings are the main ranged weapon among the Tribes of the Urdaggar and a Wolfkarl knows the value of having a few tribesmen about who are accurate with a sling. Slingers harass the enemy from the edges of a skirmish and soften up the enemy as the Wolfkarl and the freeband charge in for the kill.
Easily learned, practical, and carried in a belt pouch, nearly every Urdaggar tribesman and tribeswoman has some skill with this weapon and can employ it as need arises, either in the hunt, in defense of their clan, or while adventuring with a freeband.
The Hunter is another ranged weapon option for the Urdaggar Tribes of Valor. Hunters proliferate amongst the Tribes providing the many staples that enable a Tribe’s existence. With deadly accuracy learned from long hours chasing down food sources, a Hunter’s scouting and skills in marksmanship make a natural addition to a Wolfkarl’s freeband.
Young Hunters seek to distinguish themselves and gain experience on the path to becoming a Night Hunter. When a Wolfkarl has a reknowned Night Hunter as part of his retinue, it is certain the freeband will attract many an eager hunter.
There are many paths to becoming a great warrior among the Urdaggar. The typical fledgling is called an Unproven. They bear this label until he or she can show bravery and valor in combat. They carry a shield and long spear into battle where they fight alongside their Chieftains and other heroes, eager to win honor and distinction among their clan.
While Unproven are often clumsy and unskilled in battle, they make up for their shortcomings by attacking in mass alongside other Unproven spearmen or more experience heroes. The tribal saying is that even a porcupine can be deadly when rubbed the wrong way.
DGS has the pleasure of working with some of the best artistic and sculpting talent in the gaming industry. We collaborate with this top caliber talent to bring the best, cleanest, most amazing miniatures found in the market. We do not shrink from the cost of top talent because we know it makes for the best products for our customers. By backing our project you will enable us to continue partnering with this talent to make the best products a gamer could ask for.
All our miniatures are 32mm scale and cast of white metal (lead-free) alloy. This material creates a high quality durable miniature with exceptional texture and surface for painting brilliant works of art. Each figure is sold unpainted. We aim to appeal to master miniature painters, aspiring painters and painters looking to speed coat and throw down with their friends in any range of tabletop miniatures games. Whether used with DGS’s games, in role-playing or any other miniatures experience, our figures will enhance your gaming success.
In our exciting and dangerous World of Faelon seventeen glorious factions exist. Each faction comes to life through our Freeblades rules and miniatures. DGS released the Freeblades rulebook and miniatures for four factions this summer. All of these miniatures can be seen on our website. With Freeblades and our miniatures so well received by gamers, we have decided to accelerate our plans to make and release our fifth faction - the Urdaggar Tribes of Valor. The UToV are the first faction of our Wave 2 product stream. Your backing will allow DGS to begin Wave 2, expand our product line and greatly increase the speed to market of the UToV for customer’s enjoyment.
