Found some images for this game on BGG: link

Gorgeous look, and I loved the miniseries, which the game clearly borrows from, while still being original art.

From the character cards, there certainly appears to be an attempt to match the physical ways the magicians cast their spells on the series, which is a nice touch.

Not a minis game at all, but still I am very intrigued.
