ZOMBICIDE: GREEN HORDE IS COMING!

With the end of the incredibly successful Rising Sun campaign, Zombicide has been dethroned as the biggest CMON Kickstarter of all time, but soon it will have a chance to retake its crown. We have something colorful and strong for our next campaign: Zombicide: Green Horde is coming to Kickstarter at the end of May! This sequel to the smash hit Zombicide: Black Plague, will bring players back into a world of deadly medieval fantasy, this time filled with infected orcs and goblins who will put survivors to the ultimate test. This green menace is not only stronger than their human counterparts, but they also tend to gather into massive hordes that ambush the survivors when they least expect it. Uncover the many surprises the Green Horde has in store for you!

Zombicide: Green Horde is Coming!  

Stay tuned to CMON.comTwitter, and the CMON and Guillotine Games Facebook pages for updates on this new menace that threatens anything and anyone that stands in its way. If Zombicide: Black Plague gave you nightmares, Zombicide: Green Horde will make them come true.

Zombicide Black Plague is probably my family's favorite board game, although we don't get to play much. I'm not sure about jumping into this one though. I still have countless zombies and heroes to paint from Z:BP and lots of scenarios left to beat. I also don't know if playing an even harder version would go over too well with the kids. We still haven't touched Wulfsberg or played with the Deadeye Walkers and it's been plenty challenging. 

 

I'm so happy that I backed Black plague. It's a blast. This looks like a reskin. It'll take some convincing, and I don't think another 50 KS exclusives is going to tempt me. I'm up to my boxers in exclusives. It will come down to the actual core gameplay.

if they have a new game mechanic hidden in there, I'll probably be in in a second. If not, it depends on the load of miniatures ;)

I will likely back this. Probably only for the minis... You get a lot of value in CMON kickstarters. I can always use more Orcs. And if this is a re-skin I want to see what the equivalent will be for the Big abominations. Ogres? Dragons?

They showed the art for a walker, runner, fatty, one abomination and a few heroes. I'm sure the big aboms in the boss box will be monstrous. Here's the art for the normal one with another giant hand mutation. I'd kinda like to see one with a huge foot. Ol' Stompy!

I wish CMON would stop with the nipple rings. Although, the bone piercings through his shoulder are great. Much more savagely thematic than another nipple ring. What's next, mimics with tongue piercings? The rings in his arm are kinda neat though.

Hmmm. So bigger orcs? That is a little disappointing. But orcs will definitely be useful for my pathfinder game... even with the 20 I am getting in bones 3

Are you encountering undead orcs and humanoids in your adventure games? I'd rather have Deadites or different undead.

They certainly could be used in Pathfinder. These orcs and goblins will all be zombie versions with wounds and the like. They're very cartoony but that kinda works with Pathfinder. I'm not ashamed to admit that Pathfinder goblins are my absolute favorite. Just LOVE how quirky they are. Similarly, the fact that the Black Plague setting doesn't take itself too serious is one of the things that makes it such a blast to play. Serious dark-world settings are great, but being a Joss Whedon fan. I welcome a small side order of silly to go with my main order of "Please let us survive this!". :lol:

Hey look! This treasure chest has cool skull and tribal tattoos! There must be something wicked inside. -Famous last words.

 

 

I also hope they introduce some new game altering rules or mechanics. Hoping for new decks of weapons, equipment, and spells too. All teired to your experience range would be nice. I think only Wolfsburg has weapons you can only use in the higher xp range. I'm still jumping in anyway though. It's always worth it.

New monster types/abilities will get me to pledge. The game is solid, but adding variety is always a good thing. The same goes for new terrain features that have an impact on the game. Also, variety of quests with new goal types...maybe even campaign ideas for stringing them together for some reason.

 

Also, new survivors are unlikely to get me. The KS exclusive model has become tiresome. In theory, they could offer something to make me change my mind on that, but it is unlikely.

I'm lucky that I previously talked one of my gaming buddies into backing the original and he's going to snag this too, so I can enjoy the ride with no financial stress and then paint up, like I'm presently doing, the few minis that really interest me.  Bring on the show!!

I think I'm going to have to buy into this one, that is unless Bones IV is around the same time.

Sigh, I had managed to keep myself away from the KS part.  I break down and this is what I see.  I've been having a blast playing through the core game recently.  Havne't even tried the add-on yet either.  Ah well.  Will probably get in on this as well.

I could see the expansion being the prequel to the main game where you start fighting orcs and then the orcs are fighting zombies before you get buried in orc zombies.

      Hello everyone, 
       
      This is Helena from MAGE Company and I am here to update you about our KS campaign. 
       
      First things first, we have a date! The KS will launch on May 15th! This is our Kickstarter preview link. The page is still under construction, so you will see it as it is being created. 
       
      Furthermore if any of you will be attending UKGE in early June, you will have the opportunity to play a close to final copy of the game, with the designers! That's right, Twisted Brothers are going to be there to demo the game for all of you!
       
      The miniatures of the game are now being produced, so we are going to post daily updates with the minis. 
       

       
      This is the bandit. This is one of the minions of the game, so you will encounter him in the early stages of your combat. The bandits are despicable people who have gathered from all the 12 Realms and have as a purpose to raid travelers of the lands. These thought by other low-lives have as a purpose to sow terror across the main roads that link the 12 Realms and especially close to the mountainous areas that are their lairs. 
       

       
      However some of them, in an effort to increase their loot, they lurk into dungeons where the mighty heroes are battling evil. They thought it would be a nice chance for them, since heroes usually carry more valuables than the peasants who cross the roads of the 12 Realms. 
       
      What do you think of the Bandit? Do you like the mini?
      If you are interested in the campaign, don't forget to subscribe to our newsletter, or add a notification on Kickstarter
