Hello from heroes of the shire

Post by Rincewind_HOTS » 02 Aug 2020, 10:22

Hey guys!

My name is Damian and this is my first post here! Haven't been into anime for quite some time now, however i'm slowly getting back into it. I studied Animation at university, but unfortunately didn't find work in the field and then life got in the way and 20 yrs later i work in a completely different field. Hoping to make some like minded friends and catch some of you guys at the UK events. I am working on a board game project at the moment and I've hired a Manga/Anime style artist to work on the artwork. Thought i'd share it with you guys. Feel free to follow my IG if you'd like to follow the game more : https://www.instagram.com/heroes_of_the_shire/

Have a great day guys, speak soon.
Damian

Hello, and welcome to AL~!

It's very nice to have you here with us, I hope you enjoy your stay here and have fun as well. I haven't worked on animation since high school more the professional kind, so I know I'm going be terrible when starting it back up again a bit. However I do have the patience for it and was pretty good in school though sadly not luckily enough to go to college due to... teachers not caring to help me out with it like other students. { I won't get into the past or say why all was like that , my apologies for rambling on } Perhaps not meant to be or just not now who knows. I hope your board game project does well and your art for it is quite impressive I must say.
Well see you around the fourm~!

Hello @Rincewind_HOTS welcome to AL! That is absolutely amazing that you're working on a board game. My brother made a start to one years ago but didn't follow through, so it's really cool to see it going well! Will you be aiming to release it?

Welcome to Anime League @Rincewind_HOTS :dance:
The board game looks awesome!
I love the art for it.
You'll have to keep us updated on when you plan to release it, I'm sure there are plenty of people here that would play it :)

Which cons have you been to before?
Hope to see you around on the forum :D

Welcome to AL @Rincewind_HOTS ! Your board game design looks great! What kind of board game is it going to be? It looks like there may be a card element to it. Is it going to be physical or digital or both?

Hey guys, thank you all for the kind words and the lovely welcoming.

@Wolvenessence Patience is key with animation, like you i haven't done it for quite some time but i remember how frustrating it can be scrolling the timeline, seeing some movement that didn't look natural and then editing it, then editing it again, then again and again and again until Midnight and you're still on the same section! hehe. Thanks for the kind words.

@Heyitslaurenk Yes this is my first board game project, however i've run businesses before just not in this field so hoping my experience can transfer through :) Thank you.

@Ikkle Gemz Thank you very much :)

@Pixiedora Yes, we plan to take it to Kickstarter to get funded sometime next year. All of my life i've had good ideas but not followed through with any of them, your brother sounds familiar! So i've decided for once to go all in on something this time. Fingers crossed the gamble is worth it :)

@Teeny Thanks! I love the art too, my artist has a really unique style. Absolutely, i'll keep you guys posted as much as possible. I've been to the Wales comic con a few times. Hoping to make a few more next year when this whole lockdown scenario blows over.

@weabooweegee Thank you very much Image

@Shounen_Trash Thank you. It's going to be a huge game so there's so much to develop! It's keeping me busy through lockdown which is the important bit :)

@Keilonrich22 Hey, thank you. Here's a quick snippet from his bio : Originally a member of the Beserker family, cast aside for indifference's of war. The Warrior musters strength even in the hardest of times and his success in this journey stems from his large defence. and the ability to protect his allies.

@TtoskVery kind words, thank you :)

@Endynyp Thank you kindly. It's a dungeon crawling game with 2 modes, player vs player or cooperative. It's a tactical single turn combat board game, so something similar to final fantasy battles but on a board game, and i've taken lots of inspiration from world of Warcraft's battle mechanics. It will mostly be a physical version, however there will be a digital version of the game available too. I am currently working on a free to play sample version for feedback before the game is launched on Kickstarter, so if anyone would like the link i'll happily share it in a few more weeks once the rules are wrote up.

@Cupcake_Hearts Thank you very much. I'll happily share my board game progress with you all, i've taken so much inspiration from other projects over the years, hopefully mine can offer the same to others :)

@Emma Thanks very much!

Sorry for the slow response guys, laptop issues! I only went and spilled water all over my keyboard, which in turn screwed up the RAM inside which needed replacing! Im back now :) and once again thank you all for the warm welcoming and the lovely words. Some of you were asking more about the board game so i've added a few more images to help you get a better understanding. Most of the blurb is on my Instagram so feel free to read through some of my posts there too. In the meantime enjoy a few more photos and i look forward to chatting and making more friends.

Damian
