Anyone else following this? Its from CMON, and uses similar system to Zombicide. Its a dungeon crawl with characters that level and get skills.

 

Kickstarter coming end of this month.

 

Some pics of minis and what not have popped up today from CMON expo. I dont want to repost from other news sites but if you search there are some nice pictures of the models. I really like the evil gnome/dwarf looking guys.

Yeah, they did.

I wonder how it differs from this new project?

 

I didn't back that, by I was intrigued. I'll keep an eye out on this thread for more info.

This seems more campaign based then casual 1 off games..

 

"The game is a modern-style Dungeon Crawl game. It will have all the popular fantasy tropes in terms of monsters. Goblins, Demons, Spiders, Kobolds, and on and on. There is a massive drive toward coming out with lots of different monsters. That will increase the replayability of the game, as each time you can play through with different monsters that you will fight. You can tailor-make your game to what you want to fight. There is no “GM-Player†required. It’s entirely cooperative. During the course of the game, your character will progress not only during the game, but also during the entire campaign system."

What Guillotine said was that the Zombicide rules were their starting place, but there have been numerous changes creating an entirely different game.

I rather like having kickstarters due.... It makes for several surprise gifts to myself throughout the year. Yes I would prefer something to ship when its supposed to, but suddenly getting a notice that I am getting a big order of minis in in July out of the blue, is really fun and exciting... So, I don't mind backing a new project when an old one has not completely fulfilled. Only from companies that I am positive will fulfill though. Like Reaper, or CMON and a handful of others. If Reaper decided to do legendary encounters right now... I would absolutely back.

 

I feel the same way for CMON... Although I don't think I have had a "as scheduled" delivery from them ever, They have always delivered and the end product is always nice.

 

So, My goal with this (as it is with most kickstarters with minis) is to get great minis to use in RPGS.... Though if this game is nice and captures my kids attentions (boy-13, girl 15) then so much the better. This month is gonna be tough though. Reaper pledge manager ending, New Warhammer quest looking awesome, and Massive darkness... The only thing that could be better (worse) is if A game of Thrones board game came out with faction specific warbands... I would have to get it though as a Lannister always pays his debts.

 

I don't know why, but the creepy gnomes in this are really drawing me in...
