      @Matt - I'll pass those suggestions on to the creative folk!
      @Christian - Good catch! It's fixed now, though :)
      @Vermonter - I don't think I can add anything to that first one :P As for your second point, it's a great idea and I'll make sure it gets passed along.
      @Mike - They'll definitely get rules for use in a campaign scenario!

      Yay - a new Merc!! Maybe also some weapon sprues to allow for some conversions?

      New Merc comin up!!

      @ John - Glad you like the Outsider idea. I like the idea of a Nameless Merc available to any faction, and I like the idea of an infected Nameless; the Outsider was my way of getting both.

      I like your idea of having a dedicated weapons terrain sprue, or a weapons / tech sprue (you mentioned comm relays and sensors) sprue. (I'm all for variety, so I actually like the second option better.)

      I think a mixed turret weapons / tech sprue would sell very well to gamers excited at the possibility of swapping mounted missile launchers, flamethrowers, etc. into their gun bunkers. I'd also love to see defensive force field generators that defenders must protect / attackers can disable.

      Will there be gameplay rules for the gates and laser cannons, or are they eye candy only?

    6. "DUMP" on

      I am kind of with you on the laser cannon being made as part of a Weaponization BAttlezone set rather than the fortification set. But that being said if we are still getting the 6 tiles per sprueandthat isjust bonus to fill out the rest of it I don't mind at all. and withseveral of those tiles lookinglike 1/2 tiles this one couldgo a long way to filling many roles on the table top

      @mantic

      I totally agree with John Bobita that the Laser gun need to go to a separate sprue with accessiories. Keep the really nice building sprues restricted to terrain components.

      Great update, love the fortifications!

      Well, we know the next Factions are Forge-Fathers, and Asterians, so sadly no full Nameless faction. Though I do hope as Mantic expands the universe that we see it happen.

    11. New Hampshirizer on

      @self - Not the Plague can contract the Plague, bonehead! Meant to say "the Nameless can contract the Plague from other races, but not transmit it to other races."

      Ugh. Ok, I'm done cluttering up this thread with my idiocy.

    12. New Hampshirizer on

      (I meant the Plague can contract the Plague from other races, but not transmit it to other races. Making a Plague infected Nameless - so long as it retains enough of its mind - a safe ally for any faction.) Plague fighting Plague. Sounds cool to me.

    13. New Hampshirizer on

      Excellent update! The fortifications zone is a very strong addition, and is now a must for me. Smart stuff.

      New Merc sounds excellent, and I agree, the time is ripe for introducing new factions.

      Any chance we'll see anymore KS exclusive figures before this is all over? I hate exclusives that are strictly limited to KS campaigns, but the way you did the Survivor - available with Mantic points or at conventions etc. after the KS - was perfect.

      Hmmm - a Nameless called "The Outsider" would complement "the Survivor" nicely. Perhaps Nameless - with their bizarre physiology - can contract the Plague, but not transmit it? And perhaps sometimes they don't lose their minds to it as their bodies are transformed? Or, if the Nameless are too malevolent or incomprehensible to ever ally with anyone, perhaps the Plague makes them pliable / manipulable? Either way, you'd have a cool Merc who could fight alongside the Plague or any other faction with no story problems.

      Just thinkin' out loud.

      Hmmmm new faction has to be the nameless for me :) who doesn't like squid heads and tentacles !!! That or maybe the zzor after all all that dead meat would make a fine meal and could be the natural predator of the plagued !!

      Lets bring on the new factions! That will really push this over!

      I think there's an error on the front page. It says:

      - Currently Funding: $450,000 - Free Troopers!

      That should be:

      - Currently Funding: $450,000 - Fortified Defence Line BattleZone!

      Great updates, I think I'll add some things to my pledge (again...).

    18. Luke Howell-Williams on

      @mantic and @quirkworthy- is there any plans for this extra scenario at 2540 backers to be dread ball related in some way? It would be pretty cool. You never know, it could give you an excuse to make a cool MvP survivor merc... ;)

    19. Tony Hopkins on

      I REALLY hope all of the scenery types are funded by the end, I think this stuff could end up a huge success if it's as modular and rebuildable as I'm hoping it is. Plus I'm crossing my fingers that we'll soon have a few freebies thrown into the scenery only pledges...

      Chris means scenario instead of scenery for the campaign... you'll have loads of scenery already ;)

      I think I need my wallet surgically removed and stored in a secure location till this KS is over :(

    22. Matt Houghton on

      All these fortifications is all the more reason us rebels need some grav bikes ;)

    23. gavin on

      Please new factions no later than 500k. Really want some space elves

    24. Matt Houghton on

      Any chance you could so some weapon and head sprue's for us conversion fans :)

    25. Last Grimm on

      Very, very nice.

    29. Corwyn on

      Really liking it... I can see a fortified tower with a landing pad on top...

    30. Yonan on
