The dust has settled on our 2nd successful Kickstarter campaign which will see the Judgement range expand to 28 heroes and 4 monsters. A hero pool of that size provides tremendous variety in Warband design, and we are looking forward to an exciting tournament season in 2019 once the Kickstarter ships and the new models hit retail.
We are working on getting the wave 2 sculpts complete with Svetlana Oaklost, Skye, Gendris, Viktor/Al'garath and Vujasha yet to be done. Svetlana will be completed in a few days time while the sculpting of Viktor & Al'garath is underway. Here is a few more sneaky images of the Svetlana sculpt WiP.
We will be running the pledge manager once all the sculpts are complete and will also open up for late pledges at that time. We hope to have the sculpts completed by the end of May so will launch the pledge manager around the 1st of June. We will keep everyone informed with regular updates so you can sit back and relax until then and enjoy the sculpts as they run off the production line!
There were a decent number of backers whose Kickstarter payments were rejected by their credit card companies. Thank you to the backers that have resubmitted their payments, for those that have not yet it would really help us out if you could see to clearing the payment sooner rather than later. :)
Judgement creator, Andrew Galea, is going to be in the UK during the month of June and will be spending time meeting existing Judgement players and promoting the game to new ones! There are currently three events scheduled for Andrew's trip:
Promises to be a lot of fun and a fantastic opportunity for those interested in learning more about Judgement to learn it from the game's creator, and for existing players to challenge him!Continue reading
Things are moving so fast for us, at the moment, as we go full throttle towards our wave 2 Kickstarter. Just one month away from launching our Kickstarter page, and 6 weeks to the start, we are all hands to the pump to ensure we get our illustrations, and rules, in order. We are on track to have 6 out of the 12 hero sculpts completed, and 1 out of the 3 monster sculpts done, however most importantly, we will have full illustrations and rules for all 15 models done.
Recently we have seen 3 new illustrations drop, for 3 very diverse heroes. In today's blog post we touch briefly on all 3, and will expand up on their back stories and tactics in later posts.

Viktor introduces a few new concepts to the game, including being a halfling, having a 40mm base, and height 1 (instead of the standard hero height of 2). He is also the 2nd hero, after Zaron, that can summon a familiar to join his Warband. Being a Warlock, Viktor summons demons to fight for him, and as part of the Wave 2 Kickstarter, his pet demon, Al'garath, will be available. Viktor's powers are focused around the manipulation of unbound Souls that float around the battle field, making him a tricksy, and powerful, little Halfling. Al'garath serves as Viktor's bodyguard, and good use of the demon will go a long way to ensuring the halfling's survival.

Minotaurs have proven to be some of the most popular heroes from wave 1, and the hype has been extended into wave 2. Kogan is our 2nd Minotaur aggressor, after Thorgar, and while he does pack a decent punch in melee, he is actually a very handy ranged hero. If anyone gets too close to this guy's blunderbuss, they are going to get hurt, bad. Kogan is the 3rd World War 1/2 hero, after Allandir and Loribela, and brings a few really interesting tactical choices to a battle. There is more to this guy than meets the eye, and good players will learn to get the best out of him when inherent synergies, with other heroes, are discovered and exploited.

Zhonyja was one of the 1st heroes ever created for Judgement, however as fate would have it (pun intended) she missed out on getting released in wave 1. This time around we are determined to get her out there, she is just such an awesome hero. Owners of the 2 player starter box will know there was a Zhonyja card included in the card deck, however we have made a few slight changes to bring her in line with the other wave 2 heroes. With Zhonyja, she does exactly what it says on the tin, she deals out damage in a spectacular way, in fact, she is pretty much the highest direct damage dealer in the game. The key is keeping her alive so you don't lose the Souls she will inevitably collect. Point her in the direction of the enemy, and unleash her fury.
There are just 3 wave 2 heroes left for us to reveal, Skye (male elf monk defender), Gendris (female minotaur druid supporter) and Svetlana Oaklost (female dwarf druid soulgazer). We cannot wait to get them out there!
On the sculpting front, Nephenee, Styx and Inferno are currently under way and should all be done within the next few weeks.
