June 3, 2018 - 11:11am
Heroes of Land, Air & Sea is a 4X-style miniatures board game where players control 1 of the many factions to expand their kingdom into new territory. Players begin with a basic town hall, a couple of peons, and a single warrior and then explore the territory around them. Through the course of the game they build up their armies, workforce, and kingdom. Heroes of Land, Air & Sea, published by Gamelyn Games, is designed by Scott Almes (better known for the Tiny Epic series of games) with art by Chad Hoverter, Adam P. McIver, Ian Rosenthaler, and Benjamin Shulman. It's intended for 1-4 players, aged 14+, and plays in about 120-180 minutes. The base game supports 1-4 plays in various game modes such a solo, 2 vs 2, and free-for-all and includes 4 factions (Humans, Orcs, Elves, & Dwarves). If you add the Order & Chaos expansion it allows up to 6 players in 2 vs 2 vs 2, 3 vs 3, and free-for-all mode and adds 4 more factions (Undead, Lionkin, Lizardfold, & Goblins). The Pestilence expansion adds a 7th player and two more factions (Birdfolk & Merfolk). There are also Mercenary mini expansions, which offer a wide range of heroes who can be recruited by any player without prerequisites, and a siege engines mini expansion which offers siege constructs. There is also a Printing Update Kit for those who own the first edition of the game and want to use the new expansion. If you don't want to paint all those miniatures yourself, you can add an extra amount to your pledge to have them pre-painted. A free app for Android and iOS is currently in development which will assist in playing the game and should be available for download in August, 2018. The second printing of the base game requires a pledge of $84, or you can get the Pestilence expansion for $30 (both exclude shipping). There are also pledges to get add the various expansions as well as a range of add-ons. Visit the Kickstarter project page for more information. The project has already met it's funding goal, will end on Tuesday, June 26th, 2018, and estimated delivery is April 2019.
