I've gotta say you guys are doinig this whole thing right. Getting feedback from your backers, putting out the unfinished rules for a communty lookover is a bolder move than most people might think. I'm really looking forward to the finished product andf any help I can be to make this great I am more than willing. Thanks again to the whole team!
I am ridiculously excited about this, and will spend the time between now and publication rooting through the bottom of my kid's lego bins for 'the good parts'.
Well I assume we're all going to be mentioned in the hundred or so extra pages you will need to add to the back of the book for the credits right?
Well, they don't have this intense, passionate community!
Actually, as I understand it, Heavy Gear *was* sorta done like this. Check out that credits page sometime. Yikes. That's like a billion people.
Congratulations on the successful project. Also I'm glad to hear that you will be doing a community edit before the release. A lot of higher budget miniature games would be better off if they did something similar.
It's not often that I am excited to see a large chunk of money come out of my checking account but in this case I am thrilled. Congrats guys. Sincerely looking forward to helping with the final spot checking of the rules once you have them done.
Devon, yeah. Not only is it a nasty weapon, but it's great for busting through walls.
The Fat Snake looks great. I really like the pile bunker on the left arm!
Congratulations! Can't wait to see the rulebook!
Awesome! I literally stumbled across this today (with just 8 hours left to go), showed it to my 11 year old son and he was stoked. He spent the rest of the evening sifting through his Lego crate and building frames.
Needless to say I pledged and we're both looking forward to some fierce battles!
Way to go!
Eager to beta test the whole thing with my sons!
Yaaaay! I can't wait. :D I definitely think having a back and forth with the backers with the rules would be for the best to make sure the best version goes to the print. You'll have about 2,000 of us spell checking and making sure the rules are correct. xD
Fantastic! I'm really looking forward to reading just the bare naked rules text, let alone the finished, formatted, illustrated and printed rulebook!
