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It won't be outdated.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.

      About
                                        1 CHF = 0,88 EUR = 1,02 USD
      Through this project we want to expand our new series of collectibles miniatures inspired by The Divine Comedy, the Dante Alighieri's poem, the book that recounts about the mystical and fabulous journey that the italian poet Dante Alighieri accomplished through the three realms of the afterlife: INFERNO, PURGATORIO and PARADISO.  
      Last year we have completed an amazing campaign here on Kickstarter dedicated to the launch of the first figures of this new series. The welcome that the project received was exceptional and many backers asked us about the characters of the poem of Dante Alighieri that we didn't produce during the first wave of releases. Well, in this campaign you'll find the expansion: a second series of figures inspired by The Divine Comedy of Dante Alighieri is ready to be produced, they are just waiting your support.
      1. You'll get the NEW miniatures of Dante's Inferno series several months before their official launch: these figures are NOT going to be released soon!!  
      2. Our designs are unique, we take care carefully about every detail of our productions in order to offer you the most spectacular miniatures for your collection.  
      3. Geryon is KICKSTARTER EXCLUSIVE, it means that this creature won't be available in the future! This Kickstarter is your only chanche to get it.  
      4. The other amazing figures will NOT have the same price when released: their price on Kickstarter is the cheaper price.  
      5. You're a fan of Aradia and your support will allow this company to continue to bring out fantastic models and dioramas - real pieces of art.  
      6. We have already managed successfully 2 Kickstarter campaigns in the past and intend to stand for it in the future.  
      7. We are equipped to produce high quality resin miniatures in large quantities and ship them in a reasonable time.  
      8. Returning Backers receive extra bonus.  
      9. You'll have the possibility to buy Add-Ons from previous series of Dante's Inferno at Kickstarter prices and get freebies.  
      10. You'll be part of a fantastic adventure to make this project reality for us all, keeping alive this unique miniatures series based on The Divine Comedy: Dante's Inferno.
      There are 2 kind of backers for this campaign, the old heroes who already descended to Inferno and are not afraid to return in that gloomy place and the new heroes who are descinding right now.  
      We have planned, for some add-ons, 2 different prices: one for "returning backers" and another one for "new backers".  
      - RETURNING BACKERS = Backers who already backed our first campaign of Dante's Inferno during 2017 https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1201812263/aradia-miniatures-the-divine-comedy-dantes-inferno  
      - NEW BACKERS = Backers who are backing Dante's Inferno for the first time  
      ALL THE BACKERS OF THIS CAMPAIGN WILL BECOME AUTOMATICALLY "RETURNING BACKERS" IN THE NEXT ARADIA KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN, BEING ABLE TO ENJOY ALL THE BENEFITS OF "RETURNING BACKERS".

      About
      War Titans is a cooperative game in which 2 to 4 Players face waves of Invaders controlled by the mechanics of the game itself. Every Player acts as the Pilot of a Titan, a powerful combat robot capable of facing the menace of the giant monsters. The aim of the game is to close the Rifts which the monsters are coming from and destroy as many Invaders as possible, trying to avoid flattening out the whole planet in the process!
