Ex-Illis Beta Kit Assembled!

Ex-Illis, the new computer/tabletop miniature hybrid game released their beta test kit at Gen Con this year and I picked up a copy of the “Integral Set.” After a few hours of tinkering, I finally finished assembling the beta army. I should warn you that I am not a great miniature assembler, so any defect are strictly the result of my own incompetence. In fact, I broke two of the models assembling them, so my army is two miniatures short until I can get them fixed.

Here are a few shots of my army, with some clean-up and paint remaining.

Here is an overhead of the entire army on parade. One of the horse units and a pikeman are not pictured due to needed repairs.

Now that the army is done, I will organize a play-test using the software and let you know how it goes.

Update: I asked the Ex-Illis team to send me a few shots of what the models look like when they are put together and painted by someone competent, unlike myself 😉

    How long did putting them together take? Any problems (apart from breaking those two)?

    They look really good. Looking forward to hearing more about how it plays.

      All told about 8 hours, maybe a bit more. Very little flash to deal with and the plastic was sturdy. Other than the two accidents, I would say it went well overall.

    I have been working on my minis as well, but I have been having difficulty getting the software to work on my windows XP laptop. Have you had any luck getting your working?

      Hi,

      I loaded the smallest executable on Vista and had no issues.
