The KS is live.

Funded in just over 30 minutes and already over 100K.

This could easily be Mantic's first $million campaign.


When the scenery-only add-ons appear I think it will explode. Lots of 40K/Infinity players will jump in even if they don't go for the game itself.

Backed at the Recon Early-bird rate. Hopefully my wife doesn't kill me. I assume I will still get the rewards for the $100 level even though I backed early-bird for $90. I wish it had an option to swap out the starting factions, but or well.

Yes - if you backed Recon, you'll get all the Recon stretch goal extras.

There are a lot of cool things coming up as stretch goals :)


I'll keep the tracker updated here so people can quickly see what they are getting: http://forum.manticblog.com/showthread. ... ge-Tracker

This has piqued my interest, and at £65 to get the basic starter set (including UK shipping - Woohoo!) it's not badly priced. I'm just not sure if I would get anyone else I know playing it. Maybe I'll buy it anyway. As a treat to myself for deciding to sell my Chaos Space Marines and Flesh Tearers . . .

After how good the dreadball game is, on the miniatures alone, I'm going in for the $150 level. Looks like good fun, and last time that was the real sweet spot once all the stretch goals started coming in.

I'm in for $150!

Mantic are super generous with stretch goals and, having backed both KoW and DB, I know I'm in for a treat!

Thanks for the tracker Matt!

Just upped to Strike - the rules seem simple enough. Now for a proxy game!
