How are things going with the new figures and final ruleset?

If you follow Pulp Figure's Facebook site you'll see that Bob's doing some beautiful paintings for the Medecine cards. According to the Flint and Feather blog, playtesting is done and they are doing final editing, layout, etc for the rules, which I think are due next month? (We shall see. I wouldn't be surprised if this slipped.) I bought all the models from the KS and have received them all. Looking forward to playing the game!

You can download a beta version here

And read a AAR from our latest game here

I've had a lot of fun with these and am looking forward to the full version.

Wish him well but say again, to protect my rights in case I ever do anything with it, my FIW rules are entitled Feather and Flintlock, different but close – and long predates the rules discussed here. And actually saw some table top battles once upon about ten years ago. Just haven't had adequate time to revisit in my hurly-burly world.

The name Flint & Feather was borrowed from Haudensaunee poet Pauline Johnson's book of the same name. We originally used the title for the Rafm 7 Years War range back in the mid 1980s.

When We, Crucible Crush, wanted to do a figure range and rule set inspired by Joseph Boyden's book 'The Orenda' , Rafm generously allowed us to use the name of the range I sculpted so many years ago.

The current iteration of Flint & Feather, though, has nothing to do with the 7 Years/ French and Indian War. Our setting is the pre-contact to initial contact period. Iroquoian Scholar Bruce Trigger dubbed the time ' The Heroic Era'.

We are currently in the phase of pulling all of the elements together to design the book. The medicine cards I am currently working on are a way of simplifying the mechanics of the game, reducing the number of charts and such.

We are working towards a summer release. Heads up however, I want this book to be beautiful and deadlines will have less priority that making the project great.

A play-test version of the rules is available on-line or in print should you desire.
