The Tiny Epic series is going BIG with Heroes of Land, Sea, and Air

heroes of air Gamelyn Games, creators of the increasingly popular Tiny Epic series, has a new project slated for next year that will be just as epic...but no longer tiny.
Heroes of Land, Air & Sea is a 4X-style board game with miniatures that tells the epic tale of orcs vs. humans, dwarves vs. elves, battling kingdoms, and the individuals who turn the tides of war. [...] Players must explore the territory around them, build up their work force, fortify their army, and develop their kingdom — all through careful action selection, exploitation, war, and resource management.
This is an interesting shift for Scott Almes and Gamelyn Games and you can tell they are taking this seriously; Despite the 2017 launch date for the Kickstarter campaign, the team has already set up a BGG listing and a youtube trailer! Some chatter among the community are nicknaming Heroes as the Big Edition of Tiny Epic Kingdoms, but a discerning eye toward their description of this newest foray suggests there's a bit more going on. The exploration, combat, and economics have all been expanded to include more opportunities and risks. With the recent successes of Tiny Epic Western and House of Borgia on Kickstarter, it feels very appropriate for Gamelyn Games to ramp up their product line and shoot for a full-bodied 4X experience. More interestingly is that if they can make a good one in a small box...just imagine what they can put into a big one. Look out for their Kickstarter on January 26, 2017.
