Original one looks too much like a poo-beast and they're going with this guy.

 

Now, he's only rubbing his butt on the ground. :D

It does look good, but imagine what a mess it would be to paint. After all, they (mostly)* come assembled.

 

*They mentioned the dragon was coming with wings separate. Presumably this will be shipped in a similar fashion.

Dragon and Devil are still my only interests.  Think I am leaning pretty heavy towards the dragon though!  However that probably means I have to cut a couple of add-ons from my Bones 4 want list.

This could end up costing me a lot. There are an awful lot of add ons, but they really seem to be game changers.

 

I love that the siege expansion comes with a separate card game to play before the battle starts to simulate the months of time during a siege, along with a pile of great looking terrain, castle walls etc. Even at 15mm trebuchets, battering rams, siege towers et al. will be usable on a 28mm tabletop since you want the representation, the scale isn't as critical.

 

And Ars Nova seems like a completely separate game (it's even co-operative/solo rather than versus like the main game), a mystery that just happens to use the same mechanics as the core game. A Sean Connery mini in an Umberto Eco novel come to life? Count me in. I don't know how much replayability it will have, but for $20 it's an easy add for me.

 

Unleash Hell and Legendary Dragon are more traditional type expansions, but they do look so good:

Yes Darsc Zacal. Just remember that you only get the super exclusives Gog and Magog minis if you do a Maiden pledge during the KS. You also get all SGs and extra set of the super exclusives if you buy an extra core game in the pledge manager.

I could easily spend $300 on this, but I'm just not sure I would ever get around to playing it. Good value for the money though.

Base coat - wash - highlight. Details? Lol. I do like the scale, just not commonly played. I have a bunch of 15mm stuff from back in the 80's.

Most of the units are wearing armor or chainmail so that's pretty easy and quick if you just paint that dark metalic and drybrush brighter metal. They are including shield water transfers so no need to get fustrated painting freehand emblems. The larger creatures will obviously take more time I'm not even going to think about painting that dragon with a brush, I'll be looking into a compressor for my airbrush or find some compressed air cans if I can. Same goes for the Devil and probably the Beast but I will touch up with a brush the details.

 

Honestly after batch painting flames of war troops I think I could rip out 48 billmen in one big batch in a couple weeks time permitting. Basing will take a bit of time though. There's a lot of heroes to take time on but at this scale, should be quick. Again lots of metal. The castle on the other hand, looks like it has deep crevasses between the bricks which would be a pain to get into, I'm hoping they fine ture the final sculpts, many people have commented on how the bricks shouldn't line up like they do but be staggered too. That'll be another airbrush job.

 

Bundles are up and quite a bit of savings on those.

      Looks reasonably interesting, and should be included in these forums. I like the baby trolls.

      EDIT: This kickstarter is now Live:
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/cmon/zombicide-invader
       
       
       
       

       
      "Humans came to PK-L7 in search of high powered fuel. They found it with Xenium, a dark, oily compound deep below the planet’s surface. But they found something else too. The Xenos attack was brutal and unrelenting, and they’re still coming. On April 10 at 3pm EST, Zombicide: Invader is coming to Kickstarter. Follow the CMON and Guillotine Games Facebook pages for regular updates on the Survivors, Xenos, Equipment, and Environments of this interstellar battle for life, and look for our interview with the Zombicide: Invader design team later this week. Grab a weapon, barricade the doors, and prepare to be invaded."

      Zombicide:Invader is a cooperative game where 1 to 6 players face Xenos, an unfathomable swarm of infected Xenos controlled by the game itself. Each player takes on the role of 1 to 6 Survivors in a sci-fi setting being overwhelmed by these Xenos. The goal is simple: choose a Mission, complete its objectives, kill as many Xenos as possible, and (most importantly) survive!
       
      Survivors will fight Xenos, rescue each other, recover vital data, unveil dark secrets, and much more! Survivors can be Civilians or Soldiers, each with specialized Skills. They all play together as a team, trading Equipment, and covering each other. They use whatever weapons they can get to kill Xenos and slow the invasion. The better the weapon, the higher the body count, but the more Xenos will appear, attracted by the onslaught! Survivors must also be mindful of their location as conventional weapons work fine indoors, but the planet’s oxygen-starved surface, they’ll need to arm themselves with more specialized weaponry… Lasers, anyone?
       
      Most of the time, Xenos are predictable, but there are a lot of them and they use nasty tactics not encountered in previous Zombicidegames. Only through cooperation can players achieve the Mission objectives and win."

      I haven't backed a CMoN kickstarter in a awhile, but I think this one might tempt me depending on what the minis and gameplay are like.

      The book looks great!
       
      Also, the ala cart minis are a nice touch!
