We, at Must Contain Minis, absolutely love checking out miniatures from all sorts of games. In this post, we take a look at the miniatures in the Board Game Incantris.
|The Miniatures of Incantris, a board game by RAINN Studios.|
Incantris itself is a very enjoyable board game where players play as teams of three Wizards with the goal of taking out their opponents in arcane combat. We have also published a Battle Report and Initial Thoughts Article about the game.
Before going further, we would like to take a moment to thank RAINN Studios for sending Must Contain Minis a Review Copy of Incantris.
Incantris comes with a total of 12 Miniatures in 6 different sculpts. Each sculpt is a different wizard type. The models come in four different colours. Now… let’s take a look at the minis in the box.
|The Sorceress. Not a bad looking mini at all. I like this one.|
|There is some flashing that should be removed before painting these figures (for those that would paint them up).|
|This is my favourite sculpt from this board game. She is an Arcane Knight.|
|A great figure.|
|The Shadow Weaver. What a great dynamic pose.|
|The same mini from the back. I like the details but wonder if his feet are just a touch small.|
|She is an okay mini.|
|A lot of details on this mini. I would imagine that it would paint up quite nice.|
When I saw the minis, I was fairly impressed. I did not expect such nicely detailed figures in the box and I really like that the female figures are “family friendly.”
I immediately thought that they would make nice “proxy” wizards in Frostgrave after seeing these figures in person. As such, I felt it appropriate to include a picture for scale.
|From left to right… a 32mm Reaper Mini, an Incantris Sorcerer, a 28mm Frostgrave Miniature, a 32mm Reaper Miniature.|
As you can see in the image above, the Incantris miniature is slightly taller than the 32mm Reaper Minis and the proportions are closer to life. Personally, I think it wold be very acceptable to use these miniatures as Wizards in Frostgrave (or other games) if one wanted.
That said, I will state again that Incantris is a great game. Whether you would use these minis for just Incantris (or for other games too) is totally up to you. Figuring out how a mini could pull “double” duty in multiple games is a game I like to play in my own head.
Until next time, Happy Gaming Everyone!!!
