We are very proud to present our new team: KICKASS COSSACKS.
We hope that you will have a great fun by playing with this team! It's going to be a full roster team and all the miniatures will be different one from another, with great attention to facial expressions and small details.
MOTTO “Violence can be creative” The Kickass Cossacks come from Kislev so don't avert your eyes, don’t lose a single second of the performance of the most violent and artistic football team of the world! Their names are already legend, if you don’t know them yet, this is the right moment!
They are Cossacks, they are ready to kick a** they are the new Gaspez-Arts team: the Kickass Cossacks!
- All the "early birds" pledges are only for the first 48 hours and they'll receive the COACH miniature for free.
This team offers the possibility to make some crossovers with other teams. So take a look at the pledges of this campaign. We'll give you the possibilities to take two teams: the "Kickass Cossacks team" or the "Cossacks Kickoff team". This second team is the crossover between the Cossacks and Human teams (look carefully the Pledge Descriptions for the difference between the two teams).
During the campaign we'll give you the possibility to make another crossover with the Norse team, you'll have only to add some miniatures.
Below you can see the section CROSSOVER with more info.
and now let's start from the bigwig of the team ..
THE STRONGEST BEAR OF THE UNIVERSE
All is lethal in this ferocious animal! With a single roar he can blow up the heart of a hundred men. His claws can rip your guts as smoothly as an old man take a sip of vodka. Rumors say that if he looks you in the eyes you will never forget his glance and will live the rest of your life in terror.
Here a picture with some previews of The Bear. At the beginning we was planning the heavy armored version of the bear with tail but many of our friends after they saw it they didn't agree. So we are preparing a lighter armored version. Our sculptor is still working on it actually and in the next days you can see the prototype.
THE LETHAL LIGHTNING BLITZERS, YOU WON’T SEE THEM COMING BUT YOU WILL FEEL THEM!
They dress leather armors because they don’t need iron. Their skin is already iron. Old legends say that they were born from the strongest woman of Russia, who descended from a female line of bear tamers and at the age of ten years beated a ferocious bear to death with her bare hands because he didn’t obey her orders.
THEY CAN JUMP TO THE MOON AND COME BACK IN TIME TO SCORE A TOUCHDOWN! THE FOUR CATCHERS
They are fast. Very fast. They are so fast that if they play to russian roulette, they always win because they can dodge the bullet in the moment it has been fired! They are extremely quick and well-coordinated in movement. Instead of running on the field, they jump, they somersault, they flip in the air, so that the enemy is fascinated by their performance at the point… they steal him the ball!
THEY WENT TO HELL AND DEFEATED DEATH, NOW THEY ARE AGAIN IN THIS WORLD TO… SHOW HOW IMMORTAL THEY ARE! THE SEVEN LINEMEN
They don’t need to wear any kind of armor. They protect the catcher naked as they were born, eager to show you that they won’t spill a single drop of blood! They will play with the Minotaur or the troll or every monster of the opponent teams by caressing him as he was a little puppy. Some rumors says that, if they get angry, they are able to attack the enemy in a way so the spurt of blood will draw a skull in the air like a deadly firework.
Let’s talk about the throwers. They are so strong that if they happen to hit their opponents in the face by throwing the ball… they kill them! It’s like the opponent’s head simply pops, similar to nice balloon, it’s a wonderful performance from these circus artists! Before entering the playfield, the Cossack throwers use to squash a ball decorated with their opponent’s faces between their bare hands… to show their deep contempt! They are very popular in their home country, every Cossack woman dream of marrying a powerful thrower!
The Lightning Cossacks: the crossover with the Norse team. For only additional 22€ you can add to your pledge 4 miniatures the 2 werewolfs and the 2 berserkers to have the possibility to make a crossover to play the Norse team. For ice troll 15€
This time we really go wild. The Wolf of the Norse team version runs across the playfield with the violent desire of unleashing his sharp claws . He adores to write I WIN in the corpse of the opponent player.
Beware the BERSERKER, the most violent player in all the world and universe. When he gets angry, he doesn’t stop until he can see blood… and we are not talking about his blood! Rumors say that, when he’s in the most ferocious mood, the blood and limbs of his opponents can reach the Moon! He wears a fur coat, but it’s not because he’s cold. It’s a trophy by the last one who REALLY made him angry!
