One of Raine's biggest hobbies has always been gaming. It all started with an Atari and spread out to Yu-Gi-Oh!, Magic: the Gathering, and Dungeons & Dragons. As an artist, Raine takes pride in painting models for games as well as making his own terrain. He's also been a writer for many years, working both in the journalism industry and writing pieces of fiction. He decided to create Initiative : Tabletop as a platform to talk about all things gaming that he simply thought were cool, and reviewing games became a part of it!

Sword and Board Games Announces Twelve Elements of War Kickstarter Plans

Twelve Elements of War

Sword and Board Games, a company based out of Australia, has been in the news recently for their upcoming game, Twelve Elements of War. They’ve been posting model renderings as well as a preview of their first official cast model, which all look amazing. Twelve Elements of War will be getting a Kickstarter campaign, and though we’ve known that for some time, Sword and Board Games has just announced the start date of the campaign, December 1st, among other details.

The quick start rules for Twelve Elements of War will be released before the Kickstarter goes live in the hopes to let players get as familiar with the game as they can before things kick off. For those who don’t know, Twelve Elements of War is a miniature skirmish game with deeper elements incorporated. We’ve learned that, aside from building your warband and having battles, you’ll be able to visit a town after each game. While in the town you can choose to go to the Tavern to recruit new heroes, the Market to stock up on new items and equipment, the Arena to see pit fighting, and to the Temple to heal your wounds or ask the gods for their blessing.

The Kickstarter campaign will include pledge levels ranging from $1 to $155 AUS. Sword and Board plans to add more levels if stretch goals are met. Whether you want a single miniature or a handful of warbands and a rulebook, there will be something for everyone. If the campaign’s sixth stretch goal is met (they’ve already started planning in advance), the company will be collaborating with the community to help decide on model poses, weapons, and more. Polls will open up on the Sword and Board site to allow voting and discussion. Also, depending on what stretch goals are hit, free items will be added to pledge levels.

Twelve Elements of War looks like a promising game, and Sword and Board Games has put a lot of work into their project. Working with River Horse ensures great quality and a product that the community can get behind. For more information on upcoming plans, head over to the Sword and Board Games official site. Until then, sit back and get ready for the Kickstarter to launch in December!
