Yeah I know. Great idea – not always the best experience. Incessant delays, poor communications, long-winded excuses, sub- par products, partial fulfillment… I’m 50/50 Good to Bad projects over the past five years. And lately, I’ve given up altogether. It’s just not worth the hassle. Sure, nice figs/game/terrain but I’ll wait until they’re available at regular retail.
I relented for this one:
Three Reasons Why:
Igor Karpov: sculptor behind Lead Adventure’s Post Apocalyptic, VSF, and Bruegelburg range. Nice, chunky figs, detailed without being fussy, bucket loads of character.
Jan 2018 Delivery: The figs are made, reputable company, the caster is lined up, everything’s ready to go. No ’12 to 18 month’ estimated delivery.
Russians with Guns: Blame STALKER. I have a vodka-soaked soft spot for Russian-flavored settings and while these are billed for Chechen War, they’re perfect for any near-future/post-apocalyptic skirmish games. (like STALKER, right?)
The figs are good. (metal too) Price is reasonable. Delivery time acceptable. Go have a look and see if you couldn’t find a spot for some of these.
Oh and check out the Stretch Goals. ( I pledged ‘All In’. Look at that Ruined Warehouse)
Have a great day.
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.
A near-future mil-action short about NATO units caught in a massive Russian invasion of Poland and the Baltics. (It’s fiction, right?)
Doing the final proof read now. It should be available at Amazon end of the week.
Have a good day.
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.
While there’s a lot to sift through, sites like YouTube and Vimeo have really opened up incredible opportunities for indie filmmakers. I love finding a new high quality short. Here’s one I think you’ll like –
More figs looking for a good home.
I thought we’d get in some Fistful of Kung Fu games while I prepped for our upcoming fantasy SoBH campaign, but we decided otherwise. So… here are three near future/modern figs sets designed to represent Police, Corporate, and Criminal factions.
Sets are $40 each, which includes ConUS Shipping. If you are overseas adn interested, PLEASE contact me to determine actual postage. PayPal only please. I will combine shipping. Contact me here or gmail me. (CCGlazier)
Terrain is NOT included.
SET 1: POLICE $40
SET 2: CORPORATE SECURITY $40
SET 3: CRIMINAL TYPES $40
Thanks for looking.
