Mmmhmmm... Relic Cra... Knights

Hey guys, Jay here again and today I would like to talk about Relic Knights, a somewhat new anime themed Scifi Skirmish game beginning released fully next year from the makers of Super Dungeon Explore, Soda Pop Miniatures and Cool Mini or Not..

The reason I say it is a somewhat new game is that several of the models have been around for several years in resin and metal and their has been a basic set of rules kicking round since Gencon of 2011.  However this past Sunday saw the end of a month long Kick Starter initiative to bring the game to a wider audience with all new plastic minis and expanded and enhanced game play.  The Kick Starter raise just over 900K and allowed those who pledge to get in on the ground floor of a great new game at a fairly low price point.
