Looks interesting! I'm curious about the rules and how they'll reflect the combat as seen in the films.

For a long time I was looking for a rule set based on different kung-fu/martial arts styles, so fingers crossed it will be what I am after :)

Paul, great to see a new project from you. And a good KungFu-Game is missing, I think. A fistful of KungFu was not really so interesting.
Maybe you can use some of them: http://www.hfminis.co.uk/shop?category=modern-%26%0D%0Apost%252dapoc~modern-martial-artists

Love it! The Atomico! KS was awesome! I've only finished 2 minis, but I'm working on it. Will be following eagerly...

And again, I beg to differ w/ fellow commentors re: FFOKF. Fun game, with a great system. I don't think any game can accurately differentiate between martial arts styles except in the most niggling special rules sort of way...

I agree with you about differentiating in styles. I've ordered a copy of the Bruce Lee board game to see how they cope with it. I think they give each character a few 'signature' moves to add to the standard combat procedure which I was thinking of doing in some form.

I plan to have small, 3-4 miniatures, factions so it may be more crunchy than what I usually design, maybe not, time will tell. Currently I'm looking at adapting my Shadowman/Juju Man mechanics as they allow for extremely fast and easy combat resolution whilst retaining meaningful choices for the players.
However, they're good for ploughing through minions, less satisfying for fighting other characters. Well, satisfying for the active player but the defending player will just get battered, not a lot of fun unless I include a healing/recovery mechanic where horribly beaten characters regain their feet to fight again during their turn which isn't a bad idea and quite thematic.

As I say, it's in the design phase at the moment.

Nice work, as always! Did you use a laser cutter and make the detail pieces for that building yourself?

The doors and window grills are from Fenris Games.
I may use granny grating to make windows in the future so I can cut out a more oriental pattern.

Another material to try, at least for fancier buildings, would be those cheap thin, lasercut wooden fans that some charity shops wind up selling.
