Judgement - a MOBA inspired 54mm miniatures game

Judgement is a 2 player table-top miniatures game inspired by the Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA) computer game genre. In Judgement you play the role of a demigod that summons mortal heroes to the shadow plane of In-Between to capture Souls that fuel your immortal power. Each hero is represented on the table-top by a finely crafted 54mm scale resin miniature with incredible detail and dynamism.

This Kickstarter introduces the 1st wave of heroes that you can summon to do your bidding. All 10 are powerful mortals that have the potential to swing the battle in your favour, your challenge is learning to unlock that potential and wreak havoc on the Shadow Plane of In-Between!

Judgement miniatures are sculpted in the 54mm scale which enables an awe inspiring level of detail and character.

Each hero is meticulously designed in consultation with a team of talented illustrators and sculptors to encapsulate the unique world and game play mechanics of Judgement. This stunning initial set of miniatures is only the beginning!

Numerous strategic layers are interwoven into the very fabric of Judgement, making for an immersive, challenging and thoroughly rewarding gaming experience. Being able to select any 5 heroes from across our range to be part of your Warband presents you with your first tactical challenge.

Hero Levels, Magical Artefacts & Neutral Monsters

Drawing on its MOBA inspiration, the Judgement game play includes the following features:

  • Heroes gain levels unlocking new spells/powers and gaining health
  • Magical Artefacts can be purchased and equipped by your heroes
  • Monster camps spawn neutral monsters that attack any heroes that they can get their hands on

These in-game mechanics allow players to tailor their tactics and strategy to cater for the ebb and flow of the battle.

Your warband has to battle with neutral monsters as well as the enemy heroes!

Races & Classes

Judgement heroes are drawn from 5 races (Dwarves, Elves, Humans, Minotaurs, Orcs), who operate within 4 classes (Supporter, Defender, Aggressor, Soulgazer), defining their role on the battlefield. Like a MOBA, when playing Judgement, you are free to select any heroes from across the 5 races to fight in your Warband. Whilst there are several exploitable synergies that may sway your decision making, there are no hard restrictions, you can field whatever heroes you want!

Combat System

Judgement's combat system is dynamic, intuitive and a lot of fun. Everything is kept flowing and fast paced due to the custom Judgement dice.

Judgement combat dice allow complex tactical decisions to be made in seconds

Hero attacks include a combination of direct damage and combat manoeuvres which ensures that battles are dynamic and constantly challenging the tactical ability of the players.

Fate

The Fate mechanic simulates gold in a MOBA by enabling your heroes to use it to purchase Magical Artefacts. Fate can also be used by heroes to unlock some of their most potent abilities on their enemies. The astute use of Fate is what separates the good Judgement players from the great ones.

Pick & Ban

Another aspect of the MOBA that Judgement incorporates is the concept of a pick & ban phase. The most common tournament level format is for each player to present 7 heroes of which one is banned by their opponent. Both players then pick the 5 heroes for their Warband from the remaining 6.

Battlefield Maps

Judgement battles are fought in a circular arena with the size determined by the number of heroes each player is fielding. In a 3 heroes per side game the battle field is a 2 foot diameter circle, in a 5 heroes per side game it is a 3 foot diameter circle.

You can mark out the battlefield and use your own terrain collection, or get one of our specially designed neoprene gaming mats as an add on. Here you can see an example of one of our mats with monster and Soul spawning locations, Shrines (objectives), each player's Effigy (their base) and the location of terrain.

 The following 10 heroes are available at all pledge levels. If other heroes are unlocked as stretch goals during the campaign they will also be available at all pledge levels. 

Note that non-colour line drawing illustrations are at the concept art stage so the final sculpt may differ in appearance.

Risks and challenges

The major risk for backers is that the people running the Kickstarter are not in a good position to deliver upon their promises. Gunmeister Games has left no stone unturned to ensure that risk is removed.

We successfully produced every aspect of our game before we hit Kickstarter. That includes illustrations, sculpts, miniature production, packaging and accessories, including the added surety of redundancy in the key areas. That means having commercial relationships with 2 illustrators, 2 sculptors and 2 miniature production companies.

There are no unknowns for us, no guessing and no speculation. We know how much everything costs to produce, we know the associated lead times and we have solid commercial relationships with all our key dependencies. We are in a fantastic position to produce the products in our Kickstarter on time, and get them out to our backers as promised.

In saying that we do not have a magical crystal ball and things may crop up that blind side us. Whilst we do not envisage this happening, the one thing we can absolutely promise is that we will run the Kickstarter campaign 100% transparently. Our backers will know as much has we do about every aspect of the production.

That is our ironclad pledge to you.
