I've been a Mantic fanboy since their very beginning so I've had teasers of their upcoming terrain project coming across my Facebook feed for the past few weeks.

Are you sure it's going to be a Kickstarter though? 

For the past few months Mantic has been saying their long term plan is to rely less and less on Kickstarters and try to promote the retailers more.

 

Whatever it turns out to be I'm looking forward to it. This looks to be the sort of terrain and dungeon dressing I've been wanting to see more of from Reaper, but the more variety available the better.

 

And I have to say the quality of terrain pieces from Mantic has steadily been improving with each release. 

I thought the Mars Attacks terrain was pretty good but their Dungeon Saga Furniture Pack and even more recently their Walking Dead terrain plastics keep getting better and continue to impress in both the sculpting and quality of the plastics.

I keep seeing that it will be a KS, but not from an official source. I saw one guy say their Instagram guy spilled the beans, but I went to their Instagram and found nothing. I get the feeling with the word 'crate' that it will be a subscription service.

Dungeon Saga is a weak game. KoW is great, and the KoW kickstarter went off relatively well (for me), though experiences seemed to differ widely from person to person. The thing they are best at is allowing the Rules Committees to take over their established games and make them work better. KoW 2 is a great example of that.

Their minis are just okay in my book.

rough translation: Mantic's terrain KS draws nearer and there are new previews ...

 

and pinkymadigan: I was / am not angry about Dungeon Saga as a game, but about the way Mantic handled it.

Yeah there was a lot of weird stuff with DS. The game itself was fine, but the AC was terrible, and the 2nd printing was just as bad IMO. I think they really wanted to put together a replacement for WHQ but Jake didn't want to have anything to do with it so he rushed out just enough to fulfill his contractual obligations.

 

EDIT: SamuraiJack  - use the 'Insert other media' button below and to the right of the edit dialog instead of trying to manually tag it. Like this:C8uZbXcXoAIEY04.jpg:large

Did they disable the auto-embed on pictures?

      This is by Bob Naismith, who has a long pedigree in figure design.
       
       I really like all of it, especially the hoverbikes. But the prices are steep. I might buy a couple of display pieces, wish I could afford an army.

      Skirmish game in the Kings of War setting.  There's a rules preview link in the kickstarter description.
       
      For new models there are two forces to choose from initially.  Big images in the Hidden Contents below.

      Kickstarter is Live and has reached the initial funding level:
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1744629938/star-saga-the-sci-fi-dungeon-crawler?ref=nav_search
       
      From the Mantic Newsletter:
      "Star Saga: The Eiras Contract will see players guide a team of space mercenaries on a mission to retrieve stolen data plans from a research facility orbiting a far-off alien world. Players will take on platoons of minions, powerful alien bosses and be forced to make difficult choices as the story takes unexpected twists and turns.
       
      The spiritual sequel to Dungeon Saga, Star Saga introduces newly improved and stronger rulesets, 'learn as you go' rules for new players and, more detailed, advanced mechanics for seasoned gamers."
       
      If it wasn't for Mantics long history of fulfilment issues/delays/changes I'd be tempted by this. It sounds like the game I've been waiting for.
      Instead I'll likely just keep an eye on the Kickstarter and consider buying at retail.

      I don't think I saw this one posted here before, but with 48 hours left, I thought I'd share this fun-looking little film project.
