I'm expecting X-Force to be and add-on box like they've done with First Class

 

 

At first, I was definitely thinking that they'd have an X-Force expansion with Deadpool, Cable, Domino with a villain (maybe Sinister). And I still think that'll be the case if they want to create an expansion that would work at retail (it would match the MU pattern of three heroes and a villain per expansion). Add in one extra promo hero and we're set.

But the First Class expansion really changes the pattern. We've got five heroes and two-ish villains in the set. So it is really unclear how many heroes we should expect out of any new expansions they reveal.

Yeah, I'm just coming from a standpoint that the project needs more add-ons to drive pledge growth.  An X-Force box would definitely to that.

Yup... but still no nightcrawler.  I mean, cmon!

 

And now I have to buy both of those Blue and Gold teams.  Damn you Kickstarter!

I’m sure CMON will helpfully package those up into an all-in pledge for you. Talk about customer service!

Going all in on this is tempting. My kids are turning 11 and 8 this year. Perfect age for this game and the chibi minis seem fun to paint. The nostalgia is high on this one too. I spent a lot of time watching X-Men as a kid and the comics were a decent amount of my pull boxes in my teens/early 20s . The previous KS options might suck me in due to movie nostalgia.

 

Is there somewhere I can buy the base game and actually get it soon to try this out?

The core game was released to retail, so it should be available pretty much anywhere (its on Amazon, for instance).  There are also playthroughs online if you want to watch other people play.

I've seen the base game with Venom at Wallyworld. It's in the board game section.

I really hate the CMON policy of having to make a base pledge for add ons.. granted I could get the Gold Team by itself without Forge later, but I already gave them $200 for Marvel United..  I feel like that should qualify me to just buy an expansion

Well, there it is.  X factor and this new Xmen Phoenix Five.   

 

But still no nightcrawler....

Starting to think he will be in the final 48hrs. I was originally thinking that might be reserved for a Deadpool expansion (would be great to see Gwenpool, Headpool, and Dogpool). Not sure where the rights are on that though.

      10 types and crews as add-ons
       
      The award winning Rafm Miniatures Siege Equipment was first created in the 1980's. These miniatures have been in production for years but we need your help to retool them, and produce new moulds to continue selling the figures. With your help we can update these items for the modern era.
      This Kickstarter offers eleven items including Bombards, Ballista and Catapults. These items were originally sculpted in 25mm scale but fit nicely with 28mm figures. See the Kickstarter video for images of the pieces in scale to 28mm Peasant Siege Crew sculpted by Bob Murch of Pulp Figures.
      The All-In pledge will give you ten pieces of Siege Equipment for use in any miniature tabletop game. More items can be added to these offerings as we reach greater amounts and open stretch goals. The line has up to 40 different pieces that we can get retooled in this program. Join us and lets see how many of these items we can get retooled.
      All figures are produced in unpainted scaled white metal. Available for use in multiple scales.
      All figures ship in unpainted white metal. The Peasant Seige Crew is 28mm scale and is sculpted by Bob Murch of Pulp Figures.

      Very cool miniatures surrounding a new RPG system.

      Before the known ages, the ancient gods, who were traveling through time and space, between galaxies and systems, between planets and moons, finally reached this small blue planet and its light gray moon. Millions of years ago, searching for the force on the dark side of this moon, they found the crystals that emitted enormous energy.
       
      They took it with them and returned to the blue planet. With the use of the power from other dimensions they try to warp the crystal and use it for their own dark plans.
      It quickly turned out that the crystal emitted too much power, a power that did not harmonize with the forces of the Ancient One. The symbiosis caused conflict and damage to the ancients. The warped crystal had been abandoned by them here... and for millions of years, it had lain, covered by layers of earth and sand in the darkness and silence...

      Hi.
      Greetings from Andrzej (Ater), Jakub (MiniaturesArtTeam), and Pawel  (PJG_sculptor). For some time we were working together on something on the side which finally became a big miniature project. We plan to put it together in a board-battle game!
       
      But let's take small steps and start gently. In our first project, we want to offer you some miniatures from the world which were shown to us in the dreams by one guy, who calls himself Cthulhu (we know... it is quite weird, but the dreams were really cool).
       
      Inspired by these visions, we create a new universe in the dark, steampunk/dieselpunk climate. Now we want to show you our project and we cordially invite you not only to participate in the project itself but also to create it. Please, share your thoughts and opinions with us! Please come closer, sit down and hear a story about the Crystocracy.

      I’ve backed their previous two Kickstarters and their stuff, while a bit simplistic, is quite excellent. Made in USA with all the minimal carbon footprint, etc.

      The title is a bit misleading. The game is more of an immersive co-op miniatures game than a regular RPG. But I guess D&D started out as a miniatures game.
      You can check it out here:

      The games from Two Hour Wargames are fun.
