Zombicide: Invader - A Scifi game by CMoN

Recommended Posts

One I was okay to miss until one of my friends starting running Starfinder and then we needed inexpensive sci-fi minis. Ah well, the retail version will probably hit the 50% off sales like the other ones do.

And apparently they sent the packing slips absurdly early and my change of address did not get processed. So Now I'm going to need to try and deal with what ever shipper they're using...

I didn’t back this directly but I did piggyback on my cousins pledge for a couple of mini expansions.

It would be great if he received his pledge this week or next as I’m currently visiting him and would love to drive home to Vancouver with new minis.

US still hasn't even started shipping. But according to twitter, QMlogistics are the ones doing the US fulfillment. So I'm trying to see if I can get them to update my address. Since MARCH was too close to the ship date for CMON to do it...

 

Edit: I have nothing but good things to say about quartermaster's shipping department! In the time it took me to write this they fixed what CMON took months not to do!

 

oh and also it's already in stores...

I regretted not backing this one when a friend started running a Starfinder campaign. And then the campaign ended so I didn't have to worry about it anymore. A lot of great figures thought and I'm looking forward to seeing the paint jobs.

Could be worse...I backed a late pledge.....then somehow missed the email to lock in my rewards, so am out 150 bucks....too many Kickstarters. 

 

Edit: Good news is that after talking to CMON they let me upgrade for an all in Late Pledge Option (something they put together for such a scenario after it is too late to pick and choose options). So for another $187 I am getting everything from the KS, but will likely be in the last shipment. So about $90 more than I was originally expecting to spend, but at least I am not out the original pledge value.

Mine has arrived (to UK). Nice minis although they have that small head thing going on which I think is actually my reaction to GW over sizing heads on their minis. Lots and lots of aliens to paint, so have stocked up on contrast paints...

You won't be disappointed, the minis are awesome I can't believe the detail they hold, the factory has mastered making this stuff. I barely even see mold lines on mine. I am not a fan of the space marine bulky plate armor but they pulled it off really well. So much great homage too! (RIP Rutger Hauer)

Agreed.  Their minis are definitely getting better.  The quality is really there and the detachable base for the couple arachnid-looking abominations is a very good idea.  I had a couple that weren't assembled as well as they could have been, but overall, I'm impressed with them as board game minis.

I like the look of the aliens in the dark side expansion a lot more than main game. 

 

Same ditto. During the KS, I gave it a shot and asked if they'd have a pledge with the DS standalone rather than the base game, but they said no, so I didn't pledge.

 

DS would have been nice, but $200 is nicer.

I got my dispatch notification yesterday, three days after the parcel arrived - the UK post office has finally cracked time travel ::P:

 

The figures are very nice, although on the tall side. The civilians should be usable in a lot of other settings, which was the main reason I backed the KS.

 

I'm not so crazy on the power armoured folk. They're nice models, just not a design that does much for me. I'm not sure what colour scheme I'll go for, but they won't be painted white, as my previous efforts with that colour have not ended well

      Story
      The fabric of reality is twisting anew, and Fate herself groans in agony. An adventurer has received an artifact both ancient and strange: the Deck of Many Things, which deals boon and woe with the capriciousness of a fey princess.
      But something else is contained herein.
      Another deck, alike in power, bearing spells and shames never before seen in this world or any other. I present you, wise man or fool, with the Deck of Many Fates.
       Two Decks. Infinite Fates.
      All dungeon masters, veteran and novice alike, have heard the legends of the Deck of Many Things. A treasured artifact which can infuse any campaign with danger, wonder, and delight. But look here: another deck has emerged from behind the veil of mystery. A deck equal in power, yet bursting with epic confrontations and sinister secrets. The Deck of Many Fates.
      Comprised of two decks totaling 49 jumbo-size tarot cards, The Deck of Many Things and the Deck of Many Fates are the perfect accessory for your adventuring party. Our finest sages have also included a guide on the use of these cards, as irresponsible operation may lead to disfigurement, death, and worse. 
      The Deck of Many Things has been an RPG mainstay for over 40 years. It is an artifact of immense power and extreme chaos. Twenty-two cards each contain a strange, potent, and often game-changing effect. Perhaps you shall draw the fabled Flame card, and with it the enmity of a powerful nemesis. Or, just as likely, you may draw the Gem card, blessing you with immense wealth.
      Unlike its relative, the Deck of Many Fates is a relatively new artifact, unknown to most. It contains a staggering twenty-seven cards, each with a new power, curse, or opportunity. The Deck of Many Fates may be used on its own as an independent deck, or shuffled together with the Deck of Many Things to create a 49 card hybrid of magic, terror, and destiny.
      The Deck of Many Things and the Deck of Many Fates includes 49 jumbo tarot cards, sized at 120mm x 70mm (~4.75" x 2.75") in two hand-illustrated tuck boxes, and helpful instructions for use and play.
        Shipping
      Hopefully this step is nice and easy. We've designed a lightweight, tightly-packed product that ships nicely. Domestic (USA) orders ship free, and all International Orders pay a flat $5.
      Campaign Updates & Stretch Goals
      This campaign will have no stretch goals; what you see is what you get. We'll be using the updates to reveal more cards from our mysterious, proprietary Deck of Many Fates.
      Risks and challenges
      Common risks for cards items and RPG accessories typically include product and fulfillment issues. We're partnering with an experienced supplier we've worked with on several major projects like Wolves of Mercia, Derby Day Horse Racing, Michigan Rummy, and Faerie Chess. We're confident in their ability to produce and deliver, as we've seen it for ourselves dozens of times!
       
       
      EDIT: I am in. $15 for 2 Decks, 49 Tarot sized cards with free shipping to US. Seems like a good deal and a small risk.

      Didn't see a topic for this yet.
      2 Limited edition miniatures in 80mm scale. 'Lady Godiva' and 'The Mirror', both based on classical paintings.
      Older miniatures in the series can be bought as an add-on. Comments on previous kickstarters are pretty positive, apparently the casts are good, they're well packaged and sent out on time.

      Nocturna is getting on the new paint band wagon. These seem to be a different line than their already existing paints collaborated with Vallejo. Plus some new figures. Wooo.

      Story
      The world of Alberon, as ancient and unknowable as its timeless depths are, has few certainties for those that live in it, but ruin and corruption awaits all but a blessed few.  Halflings are, of course, no exception...
      The Western Wastelands beyond Midlam are a harsh unforgiving environment, that breeds a fierceness through necessity for survival alone.  It is thought that the first halflings to enter the Wastelands, did so unwillingly, captured by Hobgoblin Raiders some several hundred years ago.  
      It is reported that the Hogoblins thought that their small size would make them useful servants for all manner of tasks, but when the monstrous and unstoppable nature of their appetites became apparent, the halflings were stranded in the middle of the wasteland and left them to die.  
      That they didn't is some testament to the hidden reserves and ingenuity of these small folk, but they have not survived unscathed.  Their souls, often forsaken to unknowable gods, have changed as much as their bodies and minds.
      As a counterpoint to the Wasteland halflings, those that inhabit the town have found unusual niches, whether that be as criminal masterminds, pirates, anarchists, grave robbers and the somewhat cliched, but ever problematical, burglars.
      An Excerpt from 'The Robbit' by The Wizard R.R.R. Gudgrief
      Welcome to Halflings Gone Bad - Volume One!
      A collection of sixteen 28mm scale halflings from the wrong side of the elven forest tracks, for all of your fantasy miniature games.
      Welcome to our second Kickstarter to cover some of the more nefarious occupations and depths that halflings have stooped to.
      The worrying nature of the appearance of wasteland halflings, something seen as a threat to all halfling civilisation, combined with the new depths of depravity of halflings in Midlam has called for a new town council to be convened from amongst the artisans and workers of Halftown.
