Between Root and Vast, Leder has done no wrong and every game they make interests me and gets me excited. I love their use of wood materials and I'm eager to see where this game goes.

They look very cool, very in the style I like from Root. I love the screen printed meeples and think they are much more creative than minis. Beautiful.

I agree, it packs a whole lot more personality in my opinion. Then again, I'm very biased on this haha
The artist in me find them much more pleasing. Minis can be cool but it can be hard to pull off, where the model ends up being drastically different from the illustrations when the character designer and the modeler aren't working in sync. For example, I may be alone on this but I personally find Gloomhaven's minis to be pretty bad. The proportions are noticeably off and the postures look way too stiff/awkward in my opinion.
CMON does them much better of course, but I think I'm just a wood kind of guy.

Taking pages from that Stonemaier playbook.

Very very cool. I may actually Kickstart this. I have never Kickstartered a game before, but the way this is shaping up.... I might need to back it.
Hahaha I can relate to that. Never backed a game, but I'm loving how this is all developing so far.

I’m feeling this a little bit too...it’s on my bucket list to kickstart a game and this looks to be a good potential option!

This looks so cool! I know they're just meeples, but the ones from Root were perfect at representing each faction while still functioning well.
Man. They have a way with creating some awesome Meeples!! Cole Werhle tends to create games with BEAUTIFUL components (see Pax Pamir 2e)
Here's the link to the instagram post that Scott mentioned here
