Easternfront Studio: Zwergen-Gladiatoren Projekt auf Kickstarter
Wieder einmal gibt es auf Kickstarter ein interessantes Projekt: Zwergische Gladiatoren. Eastern Front Studios wollen diese sowohl als Fantasy Football Team einsetzen als auch ein (noch zu entwickelndes) Fantasy Arena Spiel damit bestreiten können.
Hi all! I’m Mick Leach from Eastern Front Studios miniatures. I am always in search of ideas for new series of miniatures for my company and when an Italian friend of mine, Alessio Cisbani, shown me his Dwarf Gladiators sketches I was immediately captured by his project…
How all started…
The Alessio’s basic idea was to build up a new team for Fantasy Football. He noticed there wasn’t a team of dwarf gladiators around so he started to work on it drawing some sketches. He based his work on historical sources: armors, and weapons are from ancient mosaics, sculptures and archeological finds. Of course the Fantasy part wasn’t ignored: some figures (for example the Retiarius) are inspired by existing miniatures for Fantasy Football, so the player can easily recognize the role of the miniature in the game.[…]
By my side i developed the Alessio’s idea pointing to make these miniature suitable for a skirmish game and not only for Fantasy Football. So I ask Alessio to draw other concepts much more related to the fantasy world i had in mind: a world where Dwarves are in slavery and are forced to combat in the arenas as gladiators. A ruthless world where they have to fight for their life against the hardest opponents, like Orcs, Trolls, Minotaurs, Battle beasts and so on. Little by little the story grew up and became a real big project.
