Scale is as Scale does

We have had a lot of questions about the miniature scale of Aetherium, and it’s a surprisingly challenging question to answer. On the one hand, the measurements are concrete units, but on the other, most companies seem to use their described scale as much suggestion as description. It makes matters rather peculiar at times. And so, it seems as is so often the case, we are best to simply show rather than to tell.

Enjoy. We had a bit of fun with these as you will gather.

D&D Chthu... didn't see that coming

brains? we had a lot of comments at AdeptiCon that these minis would make great survivors

can't help but feel this should come with a soundtrack
who was in charge of scale on this one?

wee, sleekit, cowrin, tim'rous beastie

keep in mind that he's on his toes. I'd give her even odds.

In sum... Aetherium is 32mm and very nearly true scale. We call it “very nearly” because we have exaggerated a few details and connection points purely for the strength and integrity of the models. Otherwise, I think you'll see we fit a number of very good comparative miniature scales. 

And why not...

Two days. 

Woa. I nearly missed this one. It was a very late night last night as the collective worked into the small hours packing box after box after box of promotional material. All of this and more will be given away at AdeptiCon. So. Much. More.

We have flyers in the cornucopia that is AdeptiCon’s swag bag; these flyers are good for one of our free miniatures… but that is just the beginning. So. Much. More.

Tuesday morning the Kickstarter goes live. Come join us in this world between worlds!

Three Days.

In the spirit of that tremendous number, I would like to show you three 3D renders from our sculptor-at-large, Tim Barry. These fellas (we call them Venari) are currently in the prototype phase. They represent the very best/worst of the crowd control impulse. Some proper photos to follow in the coming days.

Our preparation both for the Kickstarter (April 1st!) and AdeptiCon (April 3-6!) are coming along beautifully. We are excited -tremendously excited.

Four days.
The pieces of this grand puzzle are coming together very well. The image above arrived just last night from Jason Engle, and the remaining bits of our AdeptiCon materials have been shipping in from all parts. I have spent an intense week working with the stunningly talented Dark Templar on graphics for the rulebook. It is a tremendous feeling to have this all assembled and ready for proper presentation.

And to punctuate that thought, our dice prototypes arrived just the other day.

Five days.

Here is a sneak peek at a few photos from a program that we call the Rabble. These bad boys are one of the basic Nanomei Subroutines, and they mean trouble.

So close...
