  1. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/heavygearblitz/heavy-gear-blitz-utopia-armed-forces-plastic-minia New plastic mechs and support bots. It looks like this project has a smaller funding goal than the previous attempt.
  2. Aversion to returning to 40K?

    These days my wargame ruleset preferences have gone in other directions. As a few examples, alternating unit activations and attacks that resolve in a maximum of two dice rolls. The only way 40k would bring me back would be to change the core game engine, but then it wouldn't be 40k anymore.

    Pretty tempting. I already used a "needs more skulls" pun in the Hate kickstarter. Be careful what you wish for?
  4. Adrian Smith's HATE

    Needs more spikes and skulls.
  5. Hellboy Boardgame kickstarter by Mantic

    After Kings of War 2 had been shipping for a while and many people (including myself) were missing stuff and getting spotty replies, Mantic implemented a new incident management system. The new system worked well for me, as I got a reply immediately and my missing items sent soon after. The only other Mantic project I backed was TerrainCrate, which hasn't shipped yet so I have no idea how customer service is keeping up these days.
  6. Reaper, the Early Years

    I remember the Daimyo line. I bought enough for a small force at the time, for use in an "anything goes" set of wargaming rules that was popular in my local area. I didn't know anything about samurai at the time, literally nothing at all, and painted them in standard metal armor. So I have an army of Silver Samurai ... if I dig them out I'll get some pics, haha.
  7. CAV forum Secret Santa...?

    After extracting the package that StrongArm McPushHarder somehow squeezed into my mailbox, I now have a lovely Tyrant. I've always thought this model is particularly tall and menacing looking.
  8. Nemesis Board Game

    The wheelchair scientist is definitely my favorite.
  9. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2126421571/mouse-adventure-by-cartoon-miniatures Six initial mouse figures, with rats as stretch goals.
  10. CAV forum Secret Santa...?

    Wait ... cookie camo? I don't know whether to laugh or feel bad now.
  11. Kitbash Competition

    I would have never guessed.
  12. Kitbash Competition

    CAV II kickstarter has one I'm looking forward to for a specific conversion.
  13. Chronicle X by Archon Studios

    I'd pick up Robo Van Damme and the Alien Vs Predator arcade game marine. Not in the mood for Yet Another Boardgame That Will Just Sit Around though.
  14. I've done plastic tubes guns a few times, they can be pretty great if you cut and arrange them in a hex shape for a 6-barrel rotary.
  15. This one is relaunching and splitting into smaller projects on January 17th. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/heavygearblitz/heavy-gear-blitz-plastic-peace-river-nucoal-and-ut/posts/2070936
  16. GW to re-release Necromunda!

    Yes! I tend to play Rogue Stars as "scum of the universe" so these are quite welcome.
  17. CAV forum Secret Santa...?

    I received a request for vehicles, so Naginatas it is! Also made some custom foam packaging for the mail. :)
  18. Firedrake Blueprint

    Very nice! I've been wondering for a while now, are the rocket launchers rotary? :)
  19. The stated scales for CAV and Heavy Gear Blitz are close, however they are a bit different technology wise so the vehicles are different sizes. An average sized gear is a bit smaller than an average CAV (other than the behemoth ones), however tanks in Heavy Gear seem to be larger. Gears have hands that hold weapons, and sometimes treads/wheels/etc on their feet to assist movement. Here's the official answer from the kickstarter faq:
  20. Looks like they are starting small again. If KS1 was any indication there will be plenty of stretch goals. I received everything from KS1 with no errors. I did laugh a little at the dudes bringing a knife to a mech fight. I'll probably leave that part out.
  21. 28mm Sci-Fi Skirmish Games?

    For 28mm scifi games, I kinda miss the late 90s - early 2000s. There was a local place that stocked a good variety including 40k, Vor, Warzone, Void, etc. I really liked Warzone due to how it emphasized guns, some of the fed-up-with-40k people were pushing Void as the "fixed" version, and a bunch of painters were really into Vor's Neo-Soviets and Growlers. Good times!
  22. 30mm to 110mm Fantasy Miniatures & Sculptures

    Ok you got me, I'll back for the turtle.
  23. Atlantis Mythology kickstarter 11/20

    Just imagine the awkward moment when your evil wizard is about to complete his masterpiece, and asks his incompetent assistant to bring forth the dragon head. It depends on your source material. For example, the Chimera of Arezzo statue was lion head + goat head + snake tail (but no wings as seen here).
  24. Atlantis Mythology kickstarter 11/20

    Chimera and Hydra wip:
  25. Elven Lords, Relaunching

    Cool stuff. Also some nice terrain in the addons.
