Zenit launches a Kiki campaign to fund the Kenseď rulebook currently free in pdf and some war machines for the different armies. Many miniatures are also offered with this campaign…

Good stuff! I have a lot of those figures. Beautiful and well cast. I like the new figures. They are definitely well done.

Glad you like them my friend.

This is a really interesting game. So glad I stumbled across it. I like the mix of historic and fantasy elements; and the force sizes are manageable too. The only problem I have with it is trying to choose only two factions to back :-)

As well as the War Machines – new artillery (pictured above) – the main thing the creator, Zenit Miniatures, is raising funds for is a new hardback rulebook:

A draft is available to download now, and it is looking good :-)

The Rulebook only pledge – for if you already have suitable miniatures – is only €18.00 EUR

Glad you like it too my friend!.

Thanks Armand :-)

The latest unlock is a taiko (drum). I know that there are other versions out there, but I particularly like this design: the rustic nature of the drum and the pose of the figure.

Next up for unlock is a undead monster – looking like a semi-ethereal Samurai to me. I am sure players of undead Samurai armies will live it.

On the rule book, I probably should have said that it is expected to retail for €25.00 EUR or more. It also comes with two free figures (probably worth €17.00 EUR, so you could be said to be getting the rules for only €1.00 EUR).

Anyhow, the background to the games will be expanded further now that the latest social stretch goal has been met:-

Sato, from the undead Samurai army graces us with his presence

Zenit have a large number of undead available for the game as part of the KickStarter

Downloaded the free living rules and really liked them. Waiting for the updates and looking forward to the kickstarter rulebook.

Good job!.

We've just reached another stretch goal, a monk-engineer:-

Since I liked the monks anyway this engineer added to the excellent war machines has forced my hand and I am now pledging for that faction too ;-)

The latest add-on rather speaks for itself. The figures are available individually as well as in the sets of three.

And coming up next, Kosumo:-
