This is it, everyone.
Our last Ogre Designer's Edition stretch goal promise actually for Ogre is in its final 48 hour window. (Car Wars is the only other remaining stretch goal of any sort, and it is well on its way too.) The Battlefields Kickstarter will be ending in just under 48 hours. This is a full blown expansion to your glorious Ogre Designer's Edition. Even before the stretch goals are factored in, this had everything that ODE didn't:
- Maps G3 and S3, plus scenarios
- LAD counters
- Engineer counters
- Heavy Weapon Teams and Marines counters
- 3-D Radar Stations and Swimming Ogre Towers
- Two Ninja, a Vulcan and a Fencer-B ("enter a bar . . . ")
- Entrenchment and Revetment counters
- plus much more
But now that the stretch goals have all been unlocked, Battlefields has gone from two counter sheets to an amazing 12! There are overlay sheets (featuring water and beach overlays!), 2-D and 3-D counter sheets for the sponsored factions (Vatican, Nassau, ARF and Nihon NA), counters for the Iron Mountain scenario, and more. And this isn't even taking into account the maps now being double-sided with G1 and S1 on back!
Speaking of Iron Mountain, the map is available as a 24"x24" playmat add-on, along with no less that four other playmat maps, including two never-before-released ones. The four additional maps geomorph together to create a 48"x48" immense battlefield as well. Talk about room to roam!
This incredible expansion to Ogre Designer's Edition won't be released to retail, and similar to ODE, it is likely a one time deal. You owe it to yourself to check out the buzz over on the Battlefields campaign page. Come Friday night, it's gone!
