Blaine from Predator, the Guy with the Gatling-Gun
In the immortal words of Duckie, "Blaine? His name is Blaine? That's not a name it's a major appliance!"
Okay, so let me get this right..
I've a pledge for 302$ at the moment, which is divided like this:
Strike Team w/astr. 150$+5$ for shipping
Enforcer Bundle (50$) which includes af BOGOF Plague bundle?
Terrain for 50$
Chovar Psychic 10$
Reb Kraaw 5$
Marauder Hulk 12$
And 2nd wave shipping 10$
My question is then, do I pay for 2nd wave shipping or is that covered because of the Enforcer bundle coming 2nd wave, because I spend over some amount on 2nd??
Sry for my english
I really like the mortar - will enforcers & reds have access to it?
I'm not saying the other races wouldn't have a name for them, I imagine they do for all the plague. I just think it is weird that everything else has been called " first generation " "second generation" " third generation with heavy machine guns" and the we have zombiton or terrorton. It just seems out of place. I want consistency, give them all nicknames or keep them with the generation variations
Blaine looks cool as!!
@cley I'm with you on the Stage 2T for the enforcer name of the TerroTon but the rebs and orx would have a nickname for it.
Loving all the Plague specialist. Especially the mortar. Oh my, Blaine! Also, +1 on the Terrorton name
we have 71 hrs to go i hope we will see all the booster packs ??????? things seem to be slowing down in stead of speeding up ?
Love the TERRORton.
And the swarms are perfect. A mix of critters to show a mix of plagued beasties. I'd think only one change though. Replace one rat with a household pet (cat, rabbit, mini piggie) just to show what happens to cotton tail when the plague comes a knocking...
Actually, now that I am thinking, perhaps make them as a sprue of critters that we can mix and match to our hearts content on the base, as opposed to the D&D blob route...
I pitty the man who has to sculpt the swarm !!!
I'm just interested in the mercs for them aliens
I think the Infected Teraton could use a new name as well, since none of the other plague units have a nickname outside of the brain dead stage 3's. What if it was instead just a plague stage
2-t or something? I'm getting this based on that the zombies are called stage 3-z.
Also plague swarms and infected teratons are cool but what about infected Orx? Id like to see a heavier stage 3 based on them.
I think "Tera-zom" would work.
Plague Teraton messes with my Teraton heavy reb force loyalties of who to put down first...., well more to shoot and stab I guess
@ Jon - no, this is a brand new sculpt.
@ Rick - Terrorton over teraton?
@ Ed - $8. We need to update the front page :)
Am I missing something, or can you not add Wrath as an add-on?
Blaine YES! his melee weapon needs to be wristblade/claw
Love the swarm, but I agree with the people who think that it would be better without the rats!
Like the rat swarm!
Oh - and I really like your drawing with rats in it. If you take them out, can there be another tooth-some creature involved as opposed to just insects? To those who say it's easy to get [plague] rats...I say the same for insects. And I would guess that truly alien creatures are hard to get into something that tiny and (hopefully) intricate. I don't mind assembling it out of multiple pieces! Anything to avoid the blob-of-stuff-on-base phenomenon of the D&D minis prepaints.
Cool reminds me of the Alien Assimilation Host KS, some very intriguing mini's here.
So those 4 specialists that got unlocked earlier [for purchase] are all coming up again...and maybe w/a few friends as we unlock these boosters?
Would you please offer a BOGO for the boosters in addition to the current the 2xbooster/1xadd-on bundle BOGO?
Sorry but zombieton is a terrible name... I'd have gone with Terror-ton.
I came to make the same comment amount getting Blaine. :)
Is this the same Blain model as for dreadball?
@ Paul - The Rebs and Marauders will get a two man weapons team. The Enforcers wouldn't use a fixed team like that, they're a surgical strike force, so they got the Enforcer Defenders instead. Two of them, in fact.
@ Benjamin - you can get the contents of the specialists booster as individual models on the add-ons guide.
@ William - we did get Blaine in via the DreadBall Kickstarter, using funds placed afterwards. We'd like to get him during this time!
Whoop missed out on the dreadball ks so glad to get the opportunity to get that cool looking Blaine figure.
If the Plague have Mortars, should the Rebels or Enforcers also have that option?
@ william bidleman I do believe you are correct sir see this update: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1744629938/dreadball-the-futuristic-sports-game/posts/319116
Is he the sort of guy who needs rescuing?
So do we go for Blaine here as the MVP in the rescue scenario then?
Plague have got a nice balance between cartoony cuteness and weird virus victim going on. And a fondness for trench coats. Dying to see what the Marauder Faction Booster contains. Fingers crossed for more Asterian and FF goodness, too!
Oh, and are we going to see some female Corporation types? The female dreadball team was pretty nicely done, IMO.
Ooh-rah! Blaine is looking awesome, as is everything else.
And I think you may be right about getting Blaine for certain this time round! ;)
Am I missing something or can you only get the specialist boosters through the booster bundle?
I hope there is some sort of deal in that contains a faction booster and a specialist booster bundle. I want to at least get 1 of each model to try them out and then buy more if I like a certain booster.
@mantic - Seeing that we are still sub $700k and the booster bundles for the Rebs/Marauders are set to something beyond $740k...what happens if I get the BOGOF deal with the mindset of getting the Rebs? Will they no longer be an option since we didn't make their SG?
I thought you included Blaine in the Dreadball kickstarter due to you getting the funds after the kickstarter??? Are we not getting him now???
I agree with the Plague swarm having a greater mix of alien critters opposed to the emphasis on the rats in the drawings.
We meet again, Blaine
Looking good glad to see Blaine again. Please go with the Plague swarm that has more alien critters and less (or no rats) rats are easy to get else where.
I have to say this, along the grenade launcher and Dr. Symmonds the swarm is one of the most intriguing things you have shown for plague, really charming.
Yes, of course the plagued Teraton looks fantastic, but hey Teratons who does not love them?
Perfect, just wanted to be sure. Thank you.
@ Jason: Multiple copies :)
For Blaine, is that 1 per pledge, or are Assault and Suppression going to be getting multiple copies of him?
