Hi What is Warden with Charge Glove is the same as Cyphers with Charge Glove
It is not dead who in SG lies...
I kinda like the loincloth on the commando and if he is missing the loincloth let hope he isn't going 'commando'
Will there be a SG to include more scenery in strike? because I'd love to get 2 entire battlezones in it! :)
@Zoatibix- Revision! I knew there was something I had to do today! ;)
Further maths is a pain in the arse. :(
I want an army of nameless !!!
You know today my main PC is either virused or the registry is corrupt. The cat decided to pee directly into the PSU of my spare PC. I'm now on a creaky six year old laptop that runs Visual Studio very badly. I have an assignement deadline plus revision to get done. But this KS is really keeping my spirits up and putting a smile on my face. Cheers, Mantic! :0)
Using tentacles to throw things, great idea.
I hope 'it' is posed more dynamically than John Doe he's looks a bit like squid trapped in somethings head lights.
@Craig- Join us, join us.... You know you want to! :-D
@Tristan- that'd be cool- it would give me something to buy before December! Though Jake has a lot on his plate already, so that will probably come in Deadzone season 2! ;)
Oberon looks sweet! With FF and Asterian boosters coming, I just might give in and hit the $500 mark. Keep 'em coming, Mantic
@Zoatibix- Don't worry the actual cyphers will have a variety of poses, but that's down to the sculptors not the concept artist, hence they are all on the same pose in the art! ;) [great name by the way! :)]
Just a thought but what about stretch goals to get Deadzone rules for Warpath models. I would like to use the Stormrage Veterans along with the Forge Guard.
I've $50 - $100 ready to go for the Asterian and Forge Father Booster Bundles.
I like that the Nameless is a hi-tech as the rest of the figures in this campaign, rather than some magic wielding c'thuloid.
Codeman Oberon looks sinister... I like!
@Micheal - yes, both planned and coming soon (well soon if we keep going up at this rate) -
@Zoatibix - I think you will where this goes with the boosters
@pikaraph - I don't know what you mean :)
@blaster/@ Luke - sorry we have been caught out a little but we will post out to $900k as soon as the laptop with the art fires back into life (forgotten power cable!)
I think once we reach £810k we will have the following in the extended universe starters (compiled from previous updates:
1 Asterian Commander
5 Cyphers with Flux Rifle
1 Cypher with Fission Beam
2 Cyphers with Charge Glove
1 Weapons Drone
1 Weapon Drone with Fission Beam/Shield Generator options
1 Black Talon
1 Warden with Charge Glove
1 Forge Father Huscarl
3 Forge Guard with Hailstorm Rifles
1 Forge Guard with Hailstorm Autocannon Heavy Weapon
1 Brokkr with Heat Cannon
I think they are both looking very good, although the boosters will need to be something special (especially the FF as they are a little lacking in the specialists).
Blaster: See the text at the bottom, it says new faction boosters are coming after these goals.
if we are looking for more stretch goals please tell me you have the reb and marauder special characters still planned.
@Luke H-W: Agreed. I'm in for the Aste's but slightly-different-Cypher-holding-different-gun-in-the-same-pose is getting a tad old. I'm thinking since these are remote presence devices that I'll have the 'operators' personalizing their unit via paint jobs but looking at the variation on Rebs/Marauders I do feel a little jealous of their variety. Hopefully the booster will bring that variety.
Chtulhu Oberon ! Great !
Less Hulks, more ripper suits! :) like the new flamed commando though!
Right there with ya Luke!
C'mon Mantic, droppin the ball by not having at least 2 new SGs posted. Really should see up to 900k. Don't slow this thing down by not keeping future SGs coming. We needed at least 3 new to have 4+ to look forward to at a time!
Just upped my pledge!
Reb faction booster HO!
And why didn't mantic do what they did last time and put the next SGs after these at the bottom as one liners? Surely with 37 hours left transparency is the best method? Anyway still a great update and can't wait for Oberon!
Absolutely awesome pose on the Assault Commando, please dont' touch it it's perfect!
The commando on the right is with the flamethrower right?
Wicked Oberon. Love the hood (make it eagle-beak- pointed as in an obvious famous homage :D) and the fact that the spikes seems part of the suit with the hand tentacles going form inside the suit to around them (another nice homage to those assassins). Watch out with the mask, The eyes (mostly) and the position of the mouth tentacles (which alone is fine) reminds me a bit of a duck head.... A suggestion: since Nameless bodies (probably) consist mostly in tentacles from the neck down.... what about make some tentacles come out from ports on the back? Like some sort of short mantle, they coult complement nicely the figure and they would be useful for climbing, extra hands etcc.. An Assassin with a creed like this one could go well with some extra limb... :D
Its a flamethrower all right! I jumped the gun a little
Yay! Oberon looks absolutely awesome!
A pyro orx is cool, as is a fighty boss.
However the FF and Asterian faction feel a bit rushed to me. Not as much variation in them as the other factions, just lots of repeat minis. Don't get me wrong I'll be taking both- but a bit more variety would have been nice.
@Alex That might be a 'special weapon' of some kind? Maybe a flamethrower?
Will it take an hour to get to $810K? Possibly not.
Really hope the 'new Faction Boosters' are the Asti/FF!
If something gets added I would like it to be for free. 600 is my limit, so I can't swing any more fraction boosters. Not unless there is a buy 4 get two free type of deal.
My bad. It says pyro!
Codename oberon looks wicked. Stabby hands! Is it me or is there another normal commando in that marauder booster (far right)
Next Marauders faction booster?
Smashed before you could update :p better get that new update sooner then.
I like what I see but I find Forge Fathers too Brokkr heavy and I really do not like their non military, not really dressed nature, ok one or two, but now they are getting too many.
Hopefully forge fathers and Asterians are boosted next ;-)
Can't wait to see the Asterian and Forge Father boosters, even if it will cost me another $50. :-)
awesome... what a milestone... and still more great things to look forwards too
