Just the upgrade pieces for $5. This set is for anyone who currently owns the 2010 Lynx Miniature and would like to upgrade it to the 2017 version.

Heragul Lynx Battle Cruiser 2017 – First Look

June 17 2017

The Heragul Lynx Battle Cruiser is the most iconic ship in the Heragul Fleet. For most planetary systems across the Empire, this warship serves as the command ship of the system’s fleet. In larger and more important systems, Lynxes extend the command authority of the Fleet Captain and are found at almost every inhabited planet.

Heavily armored and armed, the triple fire rails can hold smaller warship’s at bay. A single turn’s barrage can cripple most frigate class vessels. The tactical challenge with this warship is to engage smaller ships one after another. Even though a critical value of five and reinforced structural integrity can absorb some damage, a Lynx under attack from three frigates at once can find itself in trouble.

The Lynx Battle Cruiser will be available for sale on June 19th 2017.

Movement Template Supplement for Legends of Kalidasia is Now Available

May 30 2017

The first rules supplement for Legends of Kalidasia: Heroes of the Heragul is available for download for free. Planned originally to be part of the next competitive beta, the rules for movement templates worked so well, I wanted to release them as a stand alone game supplement.

The rules for this supplement provide an alternative to the movement rules to ones found on pages 14 to 17 of the Heroes of the Heragul rulebook. While the templates produce a very similar effect to the standard rules, they do almost all of the number tracking for the player, making warship activation take much less time.

In this example, a Surakari Frigate has a velocity of 12 and spends three engine points to make a starboard turn.

In this case, a Surakari Frigate with a velocity of 14, spends two thruster points to add two port turns into its path before spending three engine points on starboard turns.

The new supplement can be downloaded from the Legends of Kalidasia page under the documents section.


Designing the Peregrine Miniature – Episode 02

May 25 2017

The current Kalidasia Live series covers the development of the Heragul Peregrine miniature for Legends of Kalidasia. This is the next miniature planned for release(after the Lynx of course.)

For the second episode, I continued to work on the concept art for the miniature. This time, I created the front and side views. Creating all of the different views as concept art solves two problems:

First, it brings a lot of clarity to what the final 3D model will look like. When only a top down concept art exists for a miniature, it is very easy to imagine a 3D object which is either impossible to exist or one that is not actually represented by the top down view. Therefore, by having the different side views, it is easy to correct any of these problems in a form which is much faster to develop and change than a 3D Model.

Second, it makes it much easier to figure out if the final miniature will actually be castable without breaking it apart into multiple pieces. In this case, I implemented some design restrictions during this part of the concept art phase to ensure the miniature could be cast in one piece. By having the different the different concept art views, I know that this miniature meets those casting requirements now instead of when I have the final 3D print in hand.

The Summary video contains the short version of the live show while the full one hour show can be found here.

The third part of the series will follow the process of turning the concept art into a completed plan as the image above starts to show.

The current Kalidasia Live series covers the development of the Heragul Peregrine miniature for Legends of Kalidasia. This is the next miniature planned for release(after the Lynx of course.)

For the first episode, I cover the basic process of creating the concept art for the new ship. Starting with some basic shapes, I refine the design and add details until I get a complete top down view of the warship.
