      ~throws more money at the screen~ Damn you Mantic! I just hope this doesn't cost me as much as the first DZ KS did! Oh well, at least I have plenty to keep me busy painting for probably years to come.

      Sweet!! Asterians and Steel Warriors!! Yes!!

    5. PCS Dane on

      Hmmm.... Asterians entering the battlefield in numbers, and in sort-of light armour...?

      Not too keen on the idea...

    6. Jason Martin on

      The Asterian battlegroup says you get 3 Sky Razors but the picture only shows two. I assume Sky Razors are like jet bikes and are used in teams of two.
      Im really excited about the Asterians and I think Ill have to find a way to budget it in.
      Thanks Mantic

      Is there any reason to get Forge Guard for $15 if the Hammerfest Drop squad made from them is the same price?

    8. MISTER neil FLOOD on

      Jason just beat me too ot.
      Sky razor missing from battlegroup graphic.
      Time to work out how much I can get away with increasing my pledge by

      Thanks team!

    10. PCS Dane on

      Really like the renders for the plastic drone infantry. Hope they will be available as add-on :-)

    11. Honking Weasel on

      The asterism models look awesome

    12. David Smith on

      Thumbs up for the Asterians, they will now keep me with my pledge - now need a orbat for them so we know what add on's to buy.

      @ Arch + Jason - Should be two Sky Razors. Good spot!

      The droids are definitely handsome! Breath of fresh air in the warpath universe!

      Whats the chances of getting the enforcers with the shields as part of an add on rather than just the peacekeepers with shields

      +1 to Tristan, is the difference between the Forge Guard and drop squad the addition of the metal bits for the drop squad?

    17. Brad Fuhrmann on

      Do we get 5 or 6 members in the drop squad tho? Battlegroup has 5 in it, yet the Forge Guard have 6.

    18. VaultAge on

      same question :
      @mantic : what's the difference between the forge guards addon and the hammerfist drop team, plasticwise ?
      do they come with the same plastic weapons options ?

    19. Nick on

      I wish I was rich enough right now to donate $14000 to get the Asterians going.

      @VaultAge, I think that the Hammerfist Forge Fathers have extra metal bits to make the orbital insertion packs.

    21. VaultAge on

      same assumption, just need mantic to confirm drop team has the same weapons options as forge guards (which they are basically) with extra metal weapons

      Got to say, even though they are (fluff-wise) a poor man's cypher, the infantry rock. I'll be getting more than just the twenty to start off with (if it is secured, of course).

    23. MRiley on

      Asterians are delightfully doofy. Hopefully some hard plastic Cyphers are on the roadmap (though a considerable way down the road - vehicles first!).

      I like the new infantry but I beg you guys to get rid of the bows and arrows. I'll never understand the appeal of a super future, hi tech race that then has something like that.

    25. Esser-Z on

      @Brad the Huscarl in the battlegroup/starter is on the Forge Guard sprue, so you get 6, one of which is a leader sculpt.

      Pledge increased as promised :) Fund me those droids I am looking for!

    27. MRiley on

      @pcalvi - there's something to be said for tradition - especially if that particular sect of a race is effective at their jobs XD

      Also, the Kalyshi are units from Deadzone, so the background and such is already there (but not finalized with publishing).

      Yeah, what pcalvi said. "I'll never understand the appeal of a super future, hi tech race that has something like that."

      Exactly; it takes away from the whole setting. Please consider going down a different route.

    29. "DUMP" on

      If you don't like the Kaleshi as they are, sell them and proxy something that you like better.
      They will not be going to go down a different route with them as they are already in production for the DZ:I fulfillment. If KoW is any indication even in tournaments you can field 25% of your forces with non-mantic mini's so it is no big deal.

    30. "DUMP" on

      That being said, I'm not sure they will find there way into my Sci-Fi armies either. But I know my wife will love them.

    31. Vegabond on

      Instead of bows they could have wrist firing darts or explosives. Come on get futuristic!

    32. Not Bob on

      Paint the Kaleshi blue and they're Yondu from the classic GOTG comic...which is what I'll be doing. =D

      I think the Asterian infantry poses could be improved. I know it's the angle but one looks like it's scratching its ass out of boredom

    34. Zaid Fouquette on

      Vicious. Are these the same Kalyshi from DZ2?

    35. VaultAge on

      yup. and the poses have also been critized along with the lack of scifi style of their weapons and outfit.
      they could be played in a fantasy set but in a scifi ?
      i really think mantic has to review the design here, it is out of place in a scifi set, even if these are embodying the tradition of the asterians

    36. Jonathan Haythornthwaite on

      Glad to see the Asterians!
      Any chance of a Veer-Myn infantry add-on like the Enforcers and Forge Fathers get? Have a feeling we will need LOTS of these guys...

    37. Arthur Monteath-Carr on

      Kalyashi are awesome. IRL we have people who go bow hunting when we have perfectly serviceable shotguns, why wouldn't we have nutter survivalists In Space!?

    38. Fomorian on

      Woah those Asterians look really awesome!

      But i go with the Heracles Set instead. Could you please make the Strider Walker available as an Addon, but only one model instead of 3. Want to add one to my pledge please :).

      Best regards

    39. Kyle Gibson on

      Love the Asterian look except the faces on the Cyphers... ouch that's one ugly face - robot or not :/; the rest of the model looks so detailed and contoured. The round hole doesn't fit.

      @kyle you mean the round bit on the drones faces the cyphers are the ones nicely painted

    42. Clam on

      @Mantic Quick question, will the hard plastic Veer-Myn Night Crawlers/Stalkers from the Deadzone Infestation campaign become available as an individual infantry add-on in this campaign, too ? (Now that the pathfinders and steel warriors have been added?)
