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....

      The busts from the base game of Kaosball. It is the latest in my 'Grab a Game and Paint Everything in the Box' projects.
      I have done this so far with 5 other board games and is a fun way to motivate myself to get more stuff painted.

      In an effort to reduce confusion by people seeking information and asking on topic questions, we are creating two threads for our Bones 4 Kickstarter.
      This is the thread for conversations, enthusiasm, and commentary.   
      This thread will be lightly moderated to ensure forum rules are followed and specific questions may be relocated to the Official Information thread.

      About this project
      Overview
      Help us launch our first line of plastic miniatures for the tabletop games we all play and love.   Run by a family of gamers, Role 4 Initiative brings decades of experience in gaming and design. 
      You've seen our dungeon tiles and polyhedral dice, now we wish to bring that same quality and value to the table with 28mm high-detail pre-painted plastic miniatures.
      Starting off with some of the most common player and monster types (Humans, Orcs, Zombies, and Skeletons), we will be producing all of our minis in sets of 6 or more per category, so you can easily and cheaply outfit your game with the figures you need.
      Our goal is to bring a very highly detailed set of miniatures, with excellent paint jobs for a reasonable price.  We all love gaming, but we're not all great artists.  So, we will always provide miniatures that are fully assembled, professionally painted, and ready to use.
      Our minis are made from a PVC material that provide both durability and flexibility.  We also have gone to great lengths to bring as much realism as possible by providing proper anatomical proportions in a 60:1 scale. 
       
       
      The Process
      First, we thought about some of the most memorable encounters of our games, wishing we had some appropriate miniatures to represent the characters and monsters in the story.

      Then we envisioned what these characters would look like and hired artists to create 3D models, 2D renderings, and background scenery that fit our stories.  But made sure they could easily fit your stories too.

      Finally, we took these models and renderings to our factory to create the plastic injection molds from which we were able to produce the painted samples you see below.

      What you get for your support:
      Set #1 - Human Adventurers
      Concept design:
      Set 1: Human Adventurers Production Samples:
      Male Viking Warrior  
      Female Blademaster  
      Male Cleric  
      Male Ranger  
      Male Wizard  
      Female Archer

      About this project
      Painted by - May Aguilar Andreu of MayArt  
      Newly Cast Bust  
       In 2016, our son who has Down syndrome graduated from high school. Most of the options for the disabled are limited so we decided to create our own opportunities for him. My wife left her career and we started Boyd's Toys. We are a small, family run business that specializes in resin cast figures and commercial printing. We do our own 3D printing, mold making, vacuum and pressure casting. John Boyd has over 30 years of printing and design experience and his favorite past time is table top games. We started creating our own figures in resin about 18 months ago on a 15 mm project called Chronicles of the Wayfarer. What is this project? Chronicles of the Wayfarer is a 15 mm war-game that has been under development for over a year now. It has two complete armies to support it and two more on the way. We have decided to release four busts to help raise funds and create a fan base to continue the development of CotW, so stay tuned ... three more are coming. 
      Below you will find a sample selection of our upcoming release of Chronicles of the Wayfarer. These are 15 mm leaders of the Kilnites. Left to right: Knight of the Kiln, War Screamer, Shield Legion, and Crossbowmen Leader. These are submissions from a recent painting contest that we sponsored. 
       
      For the first 48 hours we will be offering a free 30mm figure of the Lawgiver, "Unmasked". This figure will only be available in one of two ways and will never be sold by us after this Kickstarter. Anyone ordering a bust in the first 48 hours will receive one free. Anyone sharing our Kickstarter announcement on our Facebook page will be entered for a chance to win one of 10 figures.
       
       
      Anyone participating in the Kickstarter will have the ability to purchase additional figures. Once this campaign is done this version of the Lawgiver will be retired and his mask goes back on.

      Hi friends:
      After hard months of working, we´ve improved the game Iron League Blacks Stadium and the art has changed. Mechs and miniatures are amazing now. The board game has a new full cooperative campaign with map, scenary and enemies generation.
      The competitive mode continues and has been improved.
      So, we also want to change the title of the game, and this is:
      IRON WARS
      In July on Kickstarter. Soon more news.
