Ikwen Scenery Released

Kwiell is the home world of the Ikwen. Having once been covered in a shallow sea, the Ikwen home world still shows signs of this ancient past. Towering mineral vents pierce the crust of the planet, venting strange, nutrient and mineral rich materials into the atmosphere. Much of the aquatic life of those ancient seas has adapted to life exposed to air and all manner of strange plant analogues cluster about the rocks and vents. These vents are the source of the strange bio-silicates that make Kwiell desirable for exploitation by off worlders but it is this same life-giving material that fosters life in an otherwise desolate landscape. The Ikwen utilize the terrestrial reefs that grow around these vents as sources of food and medicine. 

We are happy to announce the release of our first terrain pieces. Designed to represent the alien scenery of the Ikwen home world of Kwiell, these metal and resin bits are perfect for breaking up any science fiction battlefield as well as adding accents to bases and other pieces of scenery.

"The Ikwen are one side of an asymmetric war against a higher tech, invading enemy. They fight in a less organized, militia style, utilizing acquired weapons, not of their of own manufacture."

Over a generation ago, the planet Kwiell was set upon by aliens bent on exploiting the natural resources of the planet. The planet’s native population, the Ikwen, found themselves suddenly enslaved and their society rocked as they were enslaved, put to work and in many cases hunted and killed. The Ikwen have spent decades in frustrated servitude to these invading overlords. We see them as very much freedom-fighting indigenous life forms, use them as alien invaders, allies, mercenaries or even lower tech indigenous forces for more organized warfare. 

We have four different Ikwen packs for you to choose from and you can see them HERE.
