I’ve backed quite a few skirmish-rules the last year or so and I’m expecting them (Song of Blades & Heroes v2 and Open Combat v2) very soon. Always on the look-out for good rules I found Relicblade on Kickstarter the other day and it shows a lot of promise.
It’s essentially a few figures a side battling it out in a small area (2’x2’ or so) in a short time. A match seem to last half an hour to 45 minutes and it looks to be fun and easy to learn.
|Looks like the rules will be available in German, Spanish, French and other languages too.|
You can hop in for as low as $6 for the PDF-rules and cards. The get-everything-and-the-stretch-goals level is at $99 and there you’ll get a physical copy of the rules and cards, dice, miniatures and more.
I approve of what they seem to aim for “It's not unusual to play several games over the course of a couple drinks.” I think I like this game already J
The project is funded now and is moving towards the first stretch-goal. You have until March 20 to hop in.
I’m in for the PDF-rules. The postage to Europe was a bit steep for the printed rules and cards, otherwise I would have jumped in for those. The minis are nice but I have a ton already (even though the spirit weapon was really nice. I wouldn’t mind that)
Anyway, check it out and see for yourself. I especially recommend the Battle of Lava Castle game they’ve recorded – it will give you an idea of what to expect.
