    Link: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1744629938/kings-of-war-vanguard-the-fantasy-skirmish-wargame Skirmish game in the Kings of War setting. There's a rules preview link in the kickstarter description. For new models there are two forces to choose from initially. Big images in the Hidden Contents below.

    CAV Tactical Breakdown: Starhawk IV

    I usually put my Archers in a different squad from my main attack, to get more mileage out of Talon EST. With my dice rolls, I don't mind overconcentrating firepower on one enemy unit (or gang piling a superheavy). Perhaps something like this to showcase Starhawk VIs as a main attack force, while still covering all your bases: Air Superiority Doctrine Attack Starhawk VI 590 (main attack) Starhawk VI 590 Starhawk VI 590 Starhawk VI 590 Talon 274 (EST and ECM) Specialist Archer 683 (Active Phase Array with decent staying power) Ryoshi 307 (backup ECM when the Talon gets kibbled, and bomb infantry or other light units) Naginata 440 (low profile but tough, use terrain to safely reach objectives or get under missile bubbles) Naginata 440 Air Kikyu 245 (good at countering Rocket and MAC units) Kikyu 245 Total: 4994

    Gangfight Skirmish Game System

    This is right up my alley. And low entry cost.
  4. Terrain bits could be a good idea. There are multiple scifi games in this scale so it could bring in some extra pledges.
  5. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1103158358/warbands-of-the-cold-north-vi-ulfhildrs-heroes Project description: About Hello Again Kickstarter backers new and loyal, longtime supporters and fans of Red Box games! We have returned again to kickstarter in the hopes to fund our newest selection of fantasy norse figures that we call the Njorn. Our intention is to fund the production of a new set of heroes and their faithful follower rank and file troops. We also intend to fund the set up of our in house production capacity! This means buying a spin caster, a smelter, all the various periphery of safe casting, metal shelves to hold molds ( LOTS of molds ) having our molds shipped to us from the various contractors we currently partner with, and raw metal to do the casting with. Being set up for in house production will allow us to reinvest in the various aspects that will make your experience with Red Box Games more efficient and better presented, as well as allow us to manage our working capital MUCH more efficiently. We currently reinvest a disproportionate amount of our profits into maintaining reasonable stock levels across the entire breadth of the red box games line. This is a HUGE investment that grows every time we add new products to the line. It also means we have to rely on kickstarters much more because we simply cannot afford to just put new items in to the store without knowing that the funds are already there to pay for the production and stocking of said items. Once set up for casting we will be able to keep the funds of the business' success where it belongs, in the future of the business. It also has the added advantage of allowing us to afford lower prices across the board and able to take chances on items which are too risky to produce through out sourcing such as larger monsters and cavalry and Rank and File sets appropriately priced for army building. To insure that the high level of quality you have come to expect from Red Box Games is faithfully maintained, I will be training in casting with a VERY talented and experienced mold maker and caster. I wont be handling the entire burden of casting right away so there is no need to worry that this development will slow down delivery of the Kickstarter or the regular course of business for RBG. My molds will continue to be made by one of the industry's best studios as well so there is no need to worry that the burden will overwhelm me or that the overall quality of the Red Box Games product will suffer. I cannot do any of this without your help so please consider backing this kickstarter! You will get some really cool stuff for a GREAT price in a reasonable amount of time and I will FINALLY be able to set up for my own production and make some real progress in this industry! AAAaaannndddd without further Adieu...... ON TO THE MINIATURES!!! We intend to fund as many figures as this kickstarter will allow and at the outset of the campaign we have 19 figures ready to go with a few slight details needing to be added before they are ready for production and I still have several more underway which will be shown as they are completed and added to the campaign as the funding allows.
  6. I just picked up the second edition rulebook. My local gaming group is converting to second edition after being hooked on the original for years (a number of them were at the Adepticon Grand Melee tournament). I've often referred to Saga as "The Historical Wargame for Fantasy Players". Even though it has historical armies, it has plenty of fantasy elements and over-the-top stuff going on. At least that's the hook I use to pull in fantasy players who normally won't give anything historical a chance. :) The new rulebook is smaller than I expected, but with enough detail to cover the situations I've run into so far. I like how combat abilities interact with resolution steps; everything is clearly defined where and when it takes place, making it easier to resolve abilities in the correct order. As an example: Lets say I play an ability that adds 4 combat dice, but another ability reduces my dice to 0. The order this happens is very important (I either have 4 or 0 dice depending on the order you do those in), but thankfully the steps are cleanly laid out so I can avoid a rules dispute. The initial army list has 12 factions including several supplements from the original. I'll need to wait a bit for my crusade lists to get released, but otherwise it has everything I need right off the bat. The tournament players in my group seem to be happy about some army changes intended to even out some of the extreme matchups (certain abilities could be a bit too game-defining in specific scenarios or against specific enemies). Although i will say I was very pleased with the overall balance in first edition, most notably that armies from the original book were still competitive against newer factions, even at the highest level of competitive play. Anyone else playing this?

    Startropolis

    I think that if I got this for my nephews (myself), they (I) would just build stuff and not worry about the game side.

    Sci-Fi Bounty Hunters

    Welcome to the forum Andy.
  9. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1737676429/bio-craft-master-crafted-miniature-gaming-terrain Some neat looking alien terrain. I like the idea of curved walls as it should make handling miniatures easier. Looks like this creator has delivered a resin project before (a dice tower). *edit* Not sure why images aren't working, I'll try again later. Also some cool stuff in the stretch goals.

    Atlantis Miniatures Ogres

    I went all-in with the Orcs/Goblins/Trolls kickstarter and was very pleased with everything I received. I'll be down for Ogres. Another vote for Elves, although I just got the Last Sword Elven Lords kickstarter so theoretically I should be good for now.

    Cigar Box Battle Mats

    These look pretty good. It's also interesting to see cut-out options in matching artwork.

    Star Wars Legion

    There were demos and product available at Adepticon this year which was my first experience with it. It's a new line of Star Wars infantry so of course I had to buy some. Also I picked up some snow troopers and General Veers at the local store. Anyone try out the game? My personal impression was that I like the unit activation sequence, but everything else was not to my taste. I'll keep picking up new releases, but won't be using them to play Legion itself. Note that there's a size difference between these and Star Wars Assault minis (I'm sure this was intentional), however careful basing will make it less noticeable if someone wants to mix them. As a side note, it's nice to see a Vader that's tall compared to everything else.

    Solomon Kane Board Game (Mythic Games)

    I don't usually go for scenic bases, but I really like the beach one with the crab. It's such a small detail but goes a long way to setting the scene.
  14. For what it's worth I've purchased resin bridges before and these don't seem out of line. And that was 15 years ago prices. That's a big chunk of resin. The "objective markers" are pretty great as well.
  15. Quality orcish engineering, who needs to fix things when you have cover it up with bling?

    Star Wars Legion

    The middle one is Luke and a bit short.

    Star Wars Legion

    Using foam to get their feet all at the same level. The reaper fig is from the old metal Warlord line. My plan is to base Legion figures lower than Assault figures to "shorten" them a bit.

    Star Wars Legion

    Some other releases at my local store: May releases were snowtroopers and Veers, new releases this month are fleet rebels (in the boiled-egg helmet) and Leia (endor outfit). Snowtroopers are my favorite design so I grabbed them before, and I'm highly interested in ship boarding actions so the fleet rebels are useful to me. I'm happy with the releases so far.

    The Frost Collection: Version 2.0

    Received mine. Each piece was individually bubble wrapped, taped, and put in its own ziplock bag. Someone spent quite a bit of time packaging this.

    Feral Elves by Westfalia

    I didn't know I wanted an elf with a mohawk, but now I do.
  21. Atari Vault is already available on PC / linux / mac. New Tempest is very interesting though.

    Solomon Kane Board Game (Mythic Games)

    I've resisted every Mythic kickstarter so far, but yes I could go for some Solomon Kane.

    Immortal Kings

    The size seems too big for the humaniods, but for everything else I think it's fine. Bring on the huge mechs! I might pick up some mechs as retail, depending on the final materials used (the faq is a bit nebulous on this).

    +STRONGSWORD+

    Received mine. Here's a size comparison to Reaper kobolds: A bit smaller, but the legs are crouched so perhaps it's closer than it looks. In any case I'll be adding these to my horde (which I really should get around to painting).

    Arcadia Quest: Riders

    hmm, I'd back for the Jacklol models only but nothing else is grabbing me. Riders standing on top of the mount is a bit too board-gamey for what I would use the models for.
