If so what do you think about the miniatures and gameplay?
I picked up the knights set of three and they are really cool.
What are your thoughts and experience.
Thanks

I was given the 100 Kingdoms (medieval human faction) figures from the starter set to paint. I have painted a couple of units. I haven't played the game.

I may not be the best person to give opinion as I don't usually paint figures at that scale and I don't really play fantasy games. My comments are about the figures only.

The figures are on the large side, 35-40mm. They won't really fit with other 25-28mm ranges. The figures are multipart plastic. I found they were not all that easy to put together (but I am not really used to multipart plastics).

In some places the quality of sculpting was not really that good compared to more established ranges, however that is not really noticeable when painted up. With the size of the figures, the units do look pretty impressive when painted. I agree with you about the knights.

This is a new company and I think they have sorted some of the quality issues out for the later releases.

I have read some of the lore for the different factions, which is fairly detailed. It is a bit on the dark side compared to the standard Tolkien inspired fantasy tropes. .

The 100 kingdoms faction is basically a mashup of all the medieval tropes you could think of, which gives a lot of options and as a fan of the medieval period I actually like. If I was going to get into a mass market fantasy game, this would be one I would consider. The figures releases so far are basically fantasy versions of high/late medieval soldiers. The historical purist in me gets annoyed by some if the design choices, but the "rule of cool" prevails.

The company has obviously put a lot of time and effort into developing the game and seems committed to future releases. There are four factions to start with and others on the way.

I have heard the rules are innovative and fun, but as I said I haven't played. It apparently is building a bit of a following among those who are looking for a mass battle rank and flank type fantasy game. If that is what you are looking for, it may be worth a look.

Here is a review from BoardGameGeek that goes into more depth about the rules and also includes some design notes from the designer.
