I really ought to just mail Sandy Petersen my wallet.  It'd save me a lot of time . . .

I have been playtesting much of the things I  the new Kickstarter. The Ancients are great! Even without a Great Old One, they can really wreck face. They get three Terrors instead. Although, my favorite thing is the new map! Shaggai falls apart little by little in the Doom Phase and forces everyone to fight over the scraps. It is my favorite map!

Some units from the new faction:

 

The Un-Men:

The Reanimated:

They play kind of like a heavy hitting Yellow Sign...kind of. The Ancients place buildings called Cathedrals to earn four of their spellbooks. They are social engineers that have great benefits (power and even free units) to give others and therefore can trade for things like alliances.

 

 

The new Shaggai map feels kind of like a reverse Primeval. Instead of glaciers giving everyone power, the zones get destroyed and potentially give ES when they do. If Primeval is an all out battle map with extra power to play king of the hill, then Shaggai is the knife fight in a dark alley where the factions fight over the scraps.

Looks OK but i'm less impressed with most of the art/minis on this one than I was with the first two (except the In-men which are great and which the forum autospell won't let me get the name right for)

 

not sure if i'll be in on this one, but i'll bookmark it and check towards the end of the campaign (yet another master rulebook is also a bit off putting, since the last one was only just delivered)

The renders remind me a little too much of the renders for Glorantha: The Gods War.  I didn't back that so I have no idea what the final miniatures for that do or will look like.

I am loving it all! I am all in for all the new stuff!

 

I might be a little biased though, since I playtested it and fell in love with the rules before seeing the minis...

IIRC, Fenris Games was the sculptor for the first KS, but not the second. Richard Luong (sp) left CW. 

 

I have plenty of CW stuff and mythos miniatures, and Reaper, Doomtown, and CMON KS will be coming soon, so expect to also pass.

I might pick up some small additions. Kinda sad that my big omega rulebook will be out-dated unless I get a new one :P

It won't be outdated. It just won't include new stuff (that you won't have if you don't buy in and get a new copy for free).

 

I like to think of it as me having the book for a year plus and then being able to have a second at the table to use.

      Surprised I did not see this mentioned yet.
       
       
      So my question here once people look at it is this really worth it?  The cost seems high given you can get Rosemary & Co or other company Kolinsky brushes far cheaper.  What makes these worth the extra cost?  I know you get the brush soap (which I would think most of us have already) and a nice case (not really needed perhaps).  But seems like $65ish with shipping for 4 brushes seems high.

      About this project
      Designed by Archon Studio, creators of League of Ancient Defenders and Vanguard of Warcomes Empire of Men - a miniature line of 28mm scale set in dark future, where World War I still rages on.
      War that should have ended long time ago
      Our miniatures are based on various military designs from World War I and II eras, with obvious dark sci-fi twist added to it. Divided into two factions, they are more closer to it's historical sources or more imaginative on the other hand.
       
      Heavy boots, thick leather coats and gas masks worn by everyone - that's The Great Empire in the nutshell. What they are lacking in physicality, they will compensate in calibers and amount of shots per minute. As World War One rages on mostly on their lands, toxic warfare resulted in whole zones being inhabited by mutated people, who eventually serve as Ubermans. Nothing is wasted in Military Industrial Complex of Great Empire.
       
      Inhuman sleekness, terrifying effectiveness and cold calculation are Echelon Dominion's traits. After mandatory "Echelon Civilian Enhancement" government programs, can no longer considered as "human". This is not a decision taken solely by The Great Empire, but also by the Echelon, who see human equating to weakness. Where other forces deploy heavy infantry, The Echelon deploy Constructs. Where other forces face fear and suffering, they welcome challenge and seek to prove themselves. Their purpose is unknown as they don’t fight solely for the purpose of land, honor or survival but whatever their plan is it will end current era for mankind for sure.
      How the models are built
      All models from "Empire of Men" line are multipart and 28mm scaled. You can see overview of sizes below:
       
      Also - if you have backed any of the previous Archon's campaigns, you can compare sizes of Empire of Men models with VoW and LOAD miniatures as well.

      About
      Over the last two years Halfsies Dice have taken the dice market by storm in the form of 7-die RPG sets, but up until this time there has been no option available for Halfsies Dice in bulk.  In fact, to date, Kickstarter has never had any campaign for dedicated bulk dice sets ...and frankly, it's eaten away at us this whole time.
      "What about Fireball!?", I think. 
      "What about Warhammer!?", I think. 
      Well, the time has come to appease the fist, and fill it with the heaviest, densest, and most well balanced resin dice on the planet!
      Time for some serious dice chucking!
       
      This campaign is unique and special in the following ways:  
      This is a Kickstarter-exclusive product.  You won't be finding these at your FLGS post-campaign. Production stock is limited.  Pledge early to claim the sets you want before we run out. You'll "Pledge" and fill out the "Pledge Manager" (PM) in the same day.  Pledges are final at time of submission and can't be altered. Best of all: Rewards ship in under a month.  Shipping: April 2018 ...guaranteed!
