Hmm, after a couple of weeks of solid work in the warehouse, we’re proud to say that the last Kickstarter orders for DreadBall Season 2 shipped the end of last week!
What a pile! This was less than half the bags…
This was an all-hands-to-pumps affair, with several of us heading to the warehouse from the office to help out. (Orcy was nowhere to be seen, but we’re fairly certain we haven’t accidentally posted him to Malaysia or anything…)
Here’s Ronnie, proudly displaying one of the boxes he packed!
Season 3 Steps Up!
All of the sculpts are done, all of the tooling is underway and we can't wait to show off all of the new models when they come back from the painters.
Incidently we had this master resin of The Praetorian MVP come into the office and, before it got shipped to Golem, we stole it off Stewart and snapped a photo to show you all:
The origins of the Praetorian is clouded in mystery – some say he was a lone spacefarer who crash landed on a Judwan-inhabited planet – others say that he travelled from beyond the edges of the known universe.
The Praetorian is a complete enigma – he does not wear armour as his skin shifts like living metal. Some have come to think of the Praetorian as a cyborg – others accept that he is just another kind of alien.
Interestingly as we explore the setting of our Deadzone game, the Praetorian's origins are becoming more clear...
He is clearly of the same design as an Asterian Cypher, a cybernetically-reanimated soldier the Asterians send into warzones. Which begs the question, what happened to the Praetorian to have led it to end up playing DreadBall? Something to do with the Judwan perhaps?
Regardless, it still carries it's Charge Glove which it uses to catch and repel the ball with some kind of gravity technology - a pretty nifty bit of kit!
The Praetorian was one of the add-on MVPs for DreadBall Season 3 and you will have another chance to get one ahead of the main shipping date.
If you're interested in trying another one of our games, Deadzone is currently being funded on Kickstarter where we've just introduced the Asterian Faction, an elite squad of soldiers built around Cyphers which follow the same design as The Praetorian... well we had to keep our sculptors and artists busy after they'd completed their work on DreadBall somehow!
