Not-So-Bored Games launched their Apocalyptic Upgrades: Viral Outbreak Kickstarter to fund some cool plastic miniatures, sculpted by Chad Hoverter, perfect for upgrading Pandemic and other board and miniature games!
Apocalyptic Upgrades: Viral Outbreak" is a themed collection of 28mm miniatures. These could be used for a number of things, like your own board game prototype, simply to paint and display or to replace wooden pawns found in some of your favorite games like Pandemic or Forbidden Island.
Chad Hoverter of DMG Miniature Factory has created some beautiful and prominent sculptures for some of our favorite board games (Mice and Mystics, Cthulhu Pandemic Investigators, the recently funded VAST as well as the currently running Heroes of Land, Air & Sea). We are so very excited he has joined us to help create our line of themed miniature upgrade kits.
They currently have two of the twenty three sculpted figures, created as prototypes/proof-of-concept for the project. Once the campaign is complete these will immediately move to production as the other characters will be designed and sculpted straight-away by the mentionned artists.
The miniatures will be made in soft plastic PVC 100 material. Although named soft plastic, the used material will be at the higher end of quality and will ressemble the Descent: Journeys in the Dark according to the creators. The production will be done in China but supervised by an experience local team member to check on quality and other features. In the pictures below you can see the artwork of the first two characters available along with their sculptures. The miniatures as shown below have been traditionally hand-sculpted by Chad Hoverter perfectly capturing the character and detail of the artwork drawn by talented artist Jens Bengtsson.
You can explore the full Kickstarter here to see more of the upcoming characters which are also very suitable for your science fiction and horror miniature roleplaying and wargames!
