Happy Halloween! Miniature Previews + Art Update
Greetings friends, and Happy Halloween!
I'm excited to share with you some previews of our progress on the art and sculpting front.
First off, I have factory proofs for all of the game's miniatures! These proofs are not in color (that step comes later) but they show off the detail and precision of the sculpts. The Ticket to Ride train is included alongside just to give a comparison of scale and detail.
Our lead artist Nokomento has been putting in excellent work every week to bring more specialists and captains to life. Here's a look at some that were finished recently!
Alternate Captains - Concept Work
I mentioned in a previous update, that we decided to include Alternate Captains based on the performance of the Pledge Manager. I'd like to show you what progress has been made on that front so far!
In order to help Nokomento finish up the alternate captains, we've brought on a new set of hands to assist with concept art. Here is a look at Mosh's work conceptualizing some of the additional playable captain characters!
Things are coming together, but I've taken a more realistic look at our art timeline. Nokomento is doing a great job and putting in a ton of effort, but realistically we have to anticipate that her pace is about 2 artworks a week, rather than the 3 we had optimistically hoped for when starting. With this in mind, I'm revising our planned delivery date for May 2019. If art is done faster though, we'll move as quickly as we're able.
Thanks again for staying turned the development of Empyreal, and look out for more updates next month!
