Pre-Production Update and new Illustrations!
It's time for an update and we are very excited that our deadlines were met; we also have some amazing illustrations to show you!
During these past three weeks we’ve been working together with Mat on the final illustrations for the game. While Mat was working, Daniel was preparing the punch-boards and files for the manufacturer that we should send by next week.
We also started modeling the miniatures for the new characters introduced during the campaign, the Poet and the Sword Dancer, both should be done by next week as seen in the schedule.
We know you are waiting for our pledge manager and we will make sure to update you very soon so you can prepare, in that update we will also reveal the final design for the Golden Age Box!
First of all we would like to show you the miniatures for the two characters we revealed in our last update.
The Medium, which was a Kickstarter Deluxe Exclusive and the Literate. Hope you like them!
We are also excited to introduce the new Poet and Sword Dancer for Tang Garden that we mentioned during the campaign but we didn't have the chance to show you.
The Poet is an homage to Xue Tao. Even though it wasn't contemporary with Xuanzong, she is one of the most influential poets during the Tang Dynasty.
The Sword Dancer is an homage to the famous Gongsun daniang (公孙大娘). She has been represented by different painters over the years.
Panoramas and tiles
Mateusz also worked on the two panoramas for Golden Age (the expansion box with all the Stretch Goals unlocked) and the two small panoramas exclusive for our Ghost Stories expansion (Deluxe exclusive).
We heard you about the tiles for Ghost Stories and we added a little more elements of mist and mystery. We also finished the Imperial Palace tiles (that will have foil elements) with the updated icons for the four Spirit Animals.
Finally, we are very excited to show you the four boards for the Spirits animals of the special scenario “Imperial Palace”, our last Stretch Goal for the campaign.
These boards will also be manufactured using a golden foil finish. More information about the rules of Imperial Palace coming soon! We are preparing a live stream where you all will be able to play with us Tang Garden using this scenario completely live.
We are working very hard and our next update will most probably be before our three weeks gap as very interesting news are coming!
