Anyone else following this? Its from CMON, and uses similar system to Zombicide. Its a dungeon crawl with characters that level and get skills.

 

Kickstarter coming end of this month.

 

Some pics of minis and what not have popped up today from CMON expo. I dont want to repost from other news sites but if you search there are some nice pictures of the models. I really like the evil gnome/dwarf looking guys.

Yeah, they did.

I wonder how it differs from this new project?

 

I didn't back that, by I was intrigued. I'll keep an eye out on this thread for more info.

This seems more campaign based then casual 1 off games..

 

"The game is a modern-style Dungeon Crawl game. It will have all the popular fantasy tropes in terms of monsters. Goblins, Demons, Spiders, Kobolds, and on and on. There is a massive drive toward coming out with lots of different monsters. That will increase the replayability of the game, as each time you can play through with different monsters that you will fight. You can tailor-make your game to what you want to fight. There is no “GM-Player†required. It’s entirely cooperative. During the course of the game, your character will progress not only during the game, but also during the entire campaign system."

What Guillotine said was that the Zombicide rules were their starting place, but there have been numerous changes creating an entirely different game.

I rather like having kickstarters due.... It makes for several surprise gifts to myself throughout the year. Yes I would prefer something to ship when its supposed to, but suddenly getting a notice that I am getting a big order of minis in in July out of the blue, is really fun and exciting... So, I don't mind backing a new project when an old one has not completely fulfilled. Only from companies that I am positive will fulfill though. Like Reaper, or CMON and a handful of others. If Reaper decided to do legendary encounters right now... I would absolutely back.

 

I feel the same way for CMON... Although I don't think I have had a "as scheduled" delivery from them ever, They have always delivered and the end product is always nice.

 

So, My goal with this (as it is with most kickstarters with minis) is to get great minis to use in RPGS.... Though if this game is nice and captures my kids attentions (boy-13, girl 15) then so much the better. This month is gonna be tough though. Reaper pledge manager ending, New Warhammer quest looking awesome, and Massive darkness... The only thing that could be better (worse) is if A game of Thrones board game came out with faction specific warbands... I would have to get it though as a Lannister always pays his debts.

 

I don't know why, but the creepy gnomes in this are really drawing me in...

      If anybody here loves cavern terrain and missed DF's first cavern KS KS2, this spring/summer around June DF will have KS6. The theme of KS6 will be Return to the Caverns and should be great fun for those who took part in KS2 or those who are new to DF.

      DF had this to say and showed the below teaser pics

      We're doing for Caverns what Dungeon of Doom did for Dungeons. A whole new batch of fun pieces to enhance your existing collection, but also completely stand-alone.

      Some of the key features:
      New Core Shapes (diagonal wall, convex curves, 1" pieces, etc)
      Passages
      Elevation (with stuff that's impossible on graph paper...)
      Negative Space pieces (and new Terrain Trays)
      Flashy Pieces (Magnets & LEDs)
      Large pieces (4x4 and larger)

      This looks like a very interesting board game with lots of new, fresh ideas and cool artwork (and nice minis - there is even a pledge level for just the minis: around 15 of them for $20 plus shipping):
       
      About this project
       

      It's a harsh but lucrative business being a mercenary out on the edge of civilization. You must explore the harsh wilderness and engage in deep tactical combat, where the decisions you make have an impact not only on your own character, but also the world around you.

      Gloomhaven is cooperative game of card-driven combat set in a persistent fantasy campaign which will change and grow as you play the game.
      There is always more to unlock and explore in the world of Gloomhaven.

      If you missed the first Gloomhaven Kickstarter (and retail sold out quickly) here is your chance. I backed that game the first time around and could not be happier with the results. Warning ... that box is heavy ...
