Zombicide: Green Horde

Recommended Posts

They've been pretty good about expanding gameplay with each KS project. And sure to be a slew of new tributes that will be awesome.

CMON Expo Q&A said there will not be early birds. 

 

Still gonna F5 on May 30th, though! :lol:

 

Pics from the Dakka GH thread show the orcs look more like mutants than zombies (although Abominations are supposed to be mutants) :

The Orcs (Zombies) are laying siege to the survivors? Or the necromancer throw Orc zombies with the catapults to make them appear at random locations and spread the plague? No idea, but I don't have anything like that catapult (and having nothing like this means I have a reason to pledge ...).

Maybe dragon bile isn't enough to finish off zombie orc abominations in this one. It would be wild if it takes a trebuchet. It certainly doesn't take that to kill a hero. Whatever the case, that looks like a fun way for something to die!

The trebuchet is like dragon fire, in that it kills everything in the square you target.  It also may be used to make attacks on 'the horde'.  

 

'The horde' is a new mechanic which makes you set aside an extra zombie of whatever type you draw.  It simulates a horde of zombies growing on the horizon.  When you draw a horde card, the whole horde appears and you potentially have to deal with tons of zombies.

 

Other changes to the game revolve around the concept that orcs are stronger than humans.  This translates to walkers doing 2 dam/hit and fatties (and iirc abominations) doing 3 dam/hit.

Hope there are some other good weapon upgrades.  And Armor!  Like... really good armor.

I so don't want to have to pledge for this, but the trebuchet and horde mechanic are sapping my walls of willpower.  This may be one of those times though where I'll pay more in the end and bypass the Kickstarter.  And if that is an example of the Orcs... I may be safe completely.  I like the idea of the horde and tougher things, but the weird growth on just a single part of the body never did make me excited and I don't think I would have a whole lot of fun painting that model.  Don't ask me why it's different than the Rat Abomination, but I'd paint that any day over this one (assuming I had either).

Will the Trebuchet be in scale with the miniatures? If this is the case, It will be an instant buy

And will it be functional like the Dwarven Forge ones from KS4?

I am digging those additions!

I will have to get approval from a friend before pledging.  Until Gencon, all gaming purchases for both of us are by agreement only.  Notable exception...Torg Eternity (which I think launches on the 31st).  But yeah, I want this....

      Whether you’re new to the Pathfinder® universe or you’re a seasoned veteran, Pathfinder: Kingmaker® is the CRPG you’ve been waiting for. 
      Here at Owlcat Games, we love and are inspired by classic isometric computer RPGs like Baldur's Gate, Fallout and Arcanum. Our dream is to rekindle the thrill of playing those games for the first time. Building your hero, exploring the unknown, getting to know your companions, experiencing the adrenaline rush of your first battle (and your last), delving into mysterious dungeons, and—most importantly—seeing your protagonist and your world change through your actions.
        We've always been big fans of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game® from Paizo, Inc®, so we thought: How cool would it be to do this in the beloved Pathfinder setting? Paizo agreed, and with your support, we hope to bring a brand-new fantasy saga to life.
       
       
       
       
      I do not have good experiences backing computer games on Kickstarter ... and Pathfinder does not have a good history with computer games. Still, I'm willing to back this. I like the Pathfinder system, the setting, the Adventure Path ... I think they are doing the right thing here (combat is real-time pause, party based, lots of companions and as a whole they are inspired by Baldur's Gate, Torment , etc. - well, who isn't? And they've got Chris Avellone as "narrative designer").

      Deep Madness is a scenerio based game with a limited number of turns to complete your objective(s) before the horrors overrun the world.
       
      The miniatures range from 33-60mm with a good amount of detail.
       
      The tiles are double sided with a normal and corrupted version of the same room.
       
      Deep Madness is live.
