UNLOCKED: Swords of Mars PDF, John Carter Sculpt & 3D Samples!

Posted by Chris Birch, Modiphius (Creator)

Good morning travellers! After a welcome respite from the week we awake to find another stretch goal has tumbled like the walls of Korad! This final goal in the Swords of Mars book sees all the PDF content now fully unlocked and we're now already on our way to unlocking the print book. 

To celebrate we're unleashing an alternative sculpt of John Carter to lead your allies on their adventures. This John Carter miniature is now available as a £5 Add On or is included free in the Miniatures Collection, Dotar Sojat and Jeddak of Jeddak pledges (and any pledges including 'all the miniatures')

 Here's the complete sculpt: 

We've received some 3D print's in the office which we're reviewing. These will go to the factory to act as production masters. You'll notice we've stuck on a few arms with bluetack as we have to leave them loose for the factory, but hopefully you'll see how detailed they are.




 Each miniature has a slot in the scenic base to fix the model in to - so no complex balancing of feet whilst the glue sets. Llana of Gathol is shown here in parts


We have updated the Pledge Levels to show all the unlocked minis so far - the Swords of Mars miniatures collection is now worth £176 and with the beasts to come will be a fantastic package. Remember it also includes all the unlocked PDF's. 



We'll be updating the stretch goals over the weekend but you can expect to see the Jeddak of Jeddak's book goals next. Remember with each goal we unlock we're adding another miniature too so whether you're in this for the books, miniatures or both you win with every goal. Once we complete the three supplements and unleash the full fury of the Beasts of Barsoom we'll be adding the geormorphic deck plans of the various ships of the Helium and Zodangan navies for both boarding actions and fun ship to ship battles. 

Enjoy your weekend!

      @Valente - yes you'll assemble them - typically they are 1 or 2 parts (ie body or body and arm).

      When we'll get the miniatures, we'll have to glue the arms ? or it will be done already ? (i actually prefer doing it my self, it allow a better painting ^^)

      I like this JC sculpt more than the first.

      @Patrick - no the orange is the 3d print material - when it comes out of the mould it will be a typical grey resin

      Nice alt sculpt! Will the models be that orange (Martian) color or standard grey? Idk much about modelling so excuse the ignorant question if that's just a standard production sample thing.

      Thanks for outlining where the goals are headed!
