Breaking! Fireforge Games: Fantasy Forgotten World Plastic Miniatures and Wargame Rules Kickstarter


Fireforge Games is will be launching their Fantasy Forgotten World Kickstarter campaign to fund no less than six different plastic boxed sets for their Fantasy Forgotten World setting, miniatures and rules in September!

The campaign will allow the production of six different plastic boxed sets for their newly announced Forgotten World fantasy range. The Kickstarter will contain two different factions, the stout Northmen and the savage Living Dead faction. The actual goal for the Kickstarter will be the creation of a fantasy starterset which will contain the above mentionned miniatures along with fantasy rules.


About Fireforge Games

Fireforge Games is an Italian company expert on the creation and distribution of multi-part figures, in Hard Plastic (HIP – High Impact Polistirene) and resin to assemble and paint. The production of our kits will be made in EU, completely under our quality control. Here in Fireforge we are all passionate and long-time wargamers and hobbyists, and this passion is the main ingredient behind our work. Our target is to give you (and ourselves of course), fun and entertainment with our figures and games.

The Kickstarter

Fireforge Games has not enough resources to release togheter all the new fantasy kits, so we will ask for the help of all hobbysts to bring on the wargame and roleplay market these new figures. The campaign will be launched probably during September and we would like to show the preview of the kickstarter page during august. The release of the models if the project will be a success, should be for april-may 2019. If the campaign will be a success, Fireforge Games has plans to release a lot more new ranges for the fantasy line. You can now check the Kickstarter preview page here for details such as the sprue lay-outs and the latest updates and corrections.

The Rules

Together with the new figures, Fireforge Games is working on a ruleset to play with. The ruleset will allow you to play skirmish games or bigger regimented battles. We are in alpha working for now and the beta should be available for the launch of the campaign. We will reveal something about the rules in the future before the starting of the campaign and we will ask to people to join the beta testing to obtain a fun, strategic set of rules.

The Miniature Material

Plastic models will be in hard plastic (or HIPS, that it is NOT pvc plastic), is the exactly same plastic used by companies like Games Workshop, Perry Miniatures and other companies. It is the best that someone can offer for your models. Our company from birth, has always offered the best in materials. The plastic used for our kits will be made in EU, under our quality control. We avoided the production in China because we were not satisfied by the quality of the Hard Plastic offered (for example plastic HIPS lances made in china break too easily).

The Stout Northmen

The first of the two factions are the tough-looking Northmen warriors hailing from the Northern Kingdom, cladded in warm body armour suitably dressed for cold climate warfare. These miniatures look surprisingly like the Game of Thrones Stark faction although they are just generic fantasy looking soldiers equipped for cold weather climate. The Northmen faction will consist out of three boxed sets which are the following:
