IDW Games Splits with Ninja Division

IDW Games

IDW Games has released an update on a few of their games about their involvement with Ninja Division.

Ninja Division was hired to create the six hero miniatures for the Wayward board game. IDW has announced they are hiring a new sculptor or studio to create these miniatures. Due to that, the Kickstarter for the Wayward board game is being pushed back.

Ninja Division was also hired to work on the Men in Black/Ghostbusters game. That is no longer the case and instead sculptor Hector “Hec” Moran will handle that. Moran worked on the Street Fighter The Miniatures Game. IDW clarified that while Ninja Division was announced initially, they were actually never hired and involved in the project.

Ninja Division has been having issues of late running late on Kickstarter and not delivering on games promised. The Idaho Statesman has a fantastic article running through the issues with the popular miniature company.
