View Full Version : Shadow Sea / Deep Wars Kickstarter

Ok, so this is a Kickstarter (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/524168246/shadowsea-conquest-of-the-underlands) I found out about through the comments on Wrath of Kings. They seem to have successfully funded Deep Wars already, but are bringing it back with Shadow Sea as two games that can be played using the same models in the same campaign.

I think there are some really nice models in here, some of which designed by Patrick Keith, who successfully funded his 'Bombshell Babes' KS last year. I really like some of the submerged models for the 'Dark Mariners' faction:

And here are some examples of the 'Scaly Horde':

Also it wouldn't be right not to show some of the Shadow Sea models, so here are some previews from the Axibalán Empire:

As for the rules it sounds like Shadow Sea is a game set inside underwater caves, while Deep Wars is all undersea battles, so that the two can be played in the same campaign. I actually thought if anyone did go in for it, it would be pretty cool to have the two going concurrently, with models submerging into and emerging from the water as reinforcements to and from whichever game, playing turns in each alternately.

So, what do you guys think?

I should probably point out that I am not the sculptor nor am I affiliated with the company at all :) I just think that this is a pretty neat concept, I've always liked the idea of playing different games and linking them, be they 40k to Epic and BFG, or Fantasy to Dreadfleet and Mordheim. The idea of going from land to sea in the same campaign really appeals to me :) And I agree, a lot of these models would really suit a nautical-theme CSM or daemon army.

I think I've managed to work out the pledge system. Everything has a points value as well as a cost, meaning if you pledge in at a certain level that comes with a starter set or rulebook included, you can trade them out for the associated points.

The starter sets are 6 points, while the softcover rulebook is 3 or hardcover is also 6.

Most single miniatures are between 1 and 3 depending on their model size and base size.

Hope that helps :)
