Kickstarter: Peacekeepers

UPDATE NOV. 15, 2016: The KS campaign was cancelled.

Personally, I think it might have hit the minimum funding goal, but apparently the creators didn’t feel the game was gaining the traction it needed to become everything they’d hoped for. Supposedly, they will try again in the near future.  I hope so. Great premise, great figs.

Kickstarter Burn is a thing – I know. I’ve jumped into several I wish I hadn’t and relearned the old Caveat Emptor rule. Even though I’ve become far more discriminating in my choices these days, I keep an eye out for worthwhile projects. This one Peacekeepers got my attention. Very intriguing premise for a strategy wargame, plus great looking mechs, I decided to pledge.

It’s not yet funded, but as of this post there’s still plenty of time. I know I’m taking a chance with my money as well as passing on the info to you folks – I’d hate for this to disappoint in anyway – but from what I can tell, it seems like a solid bet. Watch the intro video at the KS page and decide for yourself. I think it’s a very engaging concept that could make a unique and challenging game. Plus look at those big stompy robots, will ya?

Take Care and Have a good weekend.

MOUT and Mat

As promised, pictures of the GameMatz mat. Judge for yourself. Also took some pics of my reinforced Near Future MOUT team on the mat to give you some context.

The MOUT team was initially composed of excellent Pig Iron NF Infantry with an Old Crow APC, an old Void Viridian sniper for support, an old metal CAV Simba mech to hump gear, plus two excellent Zandris IV battlesuits for slugging it out in the ruins.

I wanted to beef the team up a bit so I picked up an old VOR Union ARES battlesuit off eBay then a cool looking grav drone from Khurasan Miniatures. (fits nice, eh?) Well then I had to hunt down figs to represent elite Delta-types. Settled on a rather obscure set from Sergeant Major Miniatures. The aesthetic was similar to PI stuff, plus the NVGs were very cool.

Here they are. Have a good week.

Printing is fairly stark B/W. Again, not terrible but less than expected.

LPL Entry 7

Have a thing for making small skirmish sets. (28mm gamer, 4′ x 4 table, small game room…) I enjoy finding miniatures from various manufacturers and meshing them into a cohesive unit with a similar theme and aesthetic. Not that I’m always successful, but I enjoy the process.

Here is a small sci fi, near future Force Recon team using Infinity figs, a couple of the Last Sage figs from Rocket Games’ total fumble of a Kickstarter, and a DP9 Heavy Gear fig for a small drone. The first image is the LPL entry, the others close-ups of individuals – which makes it obvious my brushwork is table top gaming standard rather than competition.

These guys would be perfect as a LRRP team sabotaging an enemy refinery, recovering data from a downed UAV deep behind enemy lines, or even squaring off against a similar OpFor in the ruins of a contested city. Oh the places you’ll go…

Now to Ebay to scrounge up figs for that OpFor.

Have a good day.
