Oh yes boys and girls its time for Blood Rage!
Now to begin with this is not a review, well it is and it isn’t. I wanted to take the time before we actually play the bloody game and just have a little look and show you what we got with the kickstarter and share my insightful thoughts on it, oh the joy I hear you cry! Yes, yes indeed, so grab thy swords Valhalla calls!
So a large box arrives, and by now you should have checked out the unboxing we did, what, you haven’t? Ok you lazy buggers go here and watch, I will wait, and cue elevator music….
Right then into the box, which has lavish artwork all over it by the supremely talented Mr Adrian Smith (literally my favourite artist ever) and inside we find as is the norm for Guillotine Games, it is crammed with gaming goodness.
And along with cards, clan sheets, tokens and numerous other things, we finally have,
the figures! 10 minis for each clan (8 warriors, 1 leader, 1 ship) 5 human sized models, and 4 bugger me backwards big bastards!
So the big four are Fire Giant, frost giant, that’s them above, and a sea serpent and a troll. And all I can say is they are all bloody gorgeous! However I do have a grumble, and that is a lot of the spears and the leaders standards are bent/bendy, I know its a little thing as these are gaming pieces and not traditional minis, its just something that bugs me.
All that and its just the basic box! Extras then include another clan box (Ram) which you can use instead of one of the originals, another 4 monsters, 3 of those being big buggers again! Then there is a fifth player expansion, which allows 5 players, a box of mystics which allows each clan to have up to 2 mystic characters, and if that was not enough, you also get ….
yes I know a box of gods, something ever household should have, but, two things here, one, again bendy weapons (boo) and secondly whether its the yellow plastic or my dodgy eyes, but the detail just does not seem as crisp, maybe painting will change that.
All in all a whole bundle of goodness that needs to be played with (I am still talking about the game) and once we have done that I will let you know what I thought of it!
But for now, go forth and crush your enemies,
