"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.

I mean, I really don't want to get any more Zombicide, as the closet is filling up and Green Horde went directly to the shelf...but I have a feeling we'll be looking at some amazing heroes in this one. I was just thinking when GH arrived "I hope they don't go scifi next time, so I can walk away happy"

Dernit. Now I need to have a think on it.

Updated the first post with a bit more info.

 

I stopped collecting Zombicide games after the original Zombicide, Prison Outbreak, and Toxic City Mall, so I kinda feel that I'm about due for another round.

 

Plus I've long been looking for a good scifi crawler.

I've Mantics Star Saga game but I'm thinking this will be quite a different experience.

Sigh, I'll have to watch this one as well.  I was thinking of a mock zcide game with bones Grey's and Bathalian's.  But this might prove a bit more thought out than mine.

While I do think that zombicide is a bit overdone, with enough nice miniatures, I would be onboard. The zombicide games are pretty fun for casual gaming with some family or friends, though.

I'll probably be in on this one, unless I can convince a friend to get it instead.  I think he should.

 

I like your thinking defiantly the way to go ::D: will be looking at it myself depending on the price it might be back especially as it will be April

Not interested in the game....let's be honest Zombicide has been done to death. Interested in then "not" hero's, and the other components..

I was hoping for another fantasy Zombicide with vampires... and maybe werewolves, like Underworld.

 

Space could be cool. We are starting a Starfinder game soon, and do have our Starwars game in rotation, but the teasers of the art aren't really doing it for me. I do think in general the sculpts are usually better than the art anyway so I will see what they show when this goes live.

 

As others have said, the alien monster things don't really fit with the Zombie theme, but just like Green Horde, I am probably only interested in the heroes anyway.

      I've been painting up a lot of Starcadia Quest.
       
      It only seems fitting to start out with the Star Wars characters. For most of my Starcadia Quest, I went with a Borderlands style- with lots of black lining against bright colors and even black hard edging to create that Borderlandish look. I plan to convert a few Starcadians into Borderlands characters as well.
      Also, it just seemed right to start out with the Star Wars inspired characters.

      150 miniatures and counting! $109 base pledge.
      By the Sadler Brothers (Descent, Gears of War, Mansions of Madness). "Roll to resolve" dice mechanic with some HeroQuest nostalgia. Playthrough videos explain the rules well.

      "Using the Modular Deck System (MDS), introduced in Street Masters and Brook City, the game features incredibly modular gameplay using several different types of decks. Hero decks, threat decks, villain decks, and quest decks can all be mixed and matched along with altar cards, feature cards, and other game elements to create countless combinations of unique adventures. With an engaging one-off experience and narrative campaign play, Altar Quest offers players endless adventure in a unique fantasy setting with years of support planned for the game.
       
      Miniatures are unpainted, but here's a painted pic by one of the designers and painter...

      Another day another devil.
       
      Several months ago I was searching for a suitable mini for a chain devil.  I was in need of a few of them to represent hellish prison guards.  Unfortunately, there's not a lot of options that I liked.  Most of the official pre-painted chain devils look like awkward Michelin Men.  So I went looking for a suitable substitute.
       
      I settled on the Pelegarth Brutes from CMON's Wrath of Kings.  A few modifications later and...
       

       
      Three frightening and unrelenting guards of hell.
       
      More Photos Below the Spoiler:
       
      I really liked working on these guys.  It was a lot of fun reinterpreting an existing monster and finding a way to make it unique.  They're definitely a favorite of mine.  Plus I love that the chains actually dangle and swing when moving the minis around.
       
      Check out the rest of my Infernal Army HERE.
       
      How have you reinterpreted a mini in your own projects?

      I've got a bunch of minis to post from my Cthulhu: Death May Die set.  Here are the first ones- I'll be back to update as I get more pics.
