Kick-starter Campaigns……………………………

I’ve been quite the past few weeks, mainly due to having a stinking cold, and decorating the flat. The cold was a bad one for me, normally I would do some painting but this time I was knocked for 6. Luckily the new settee is also a sofa bed, so I have had the luxury of watching all the Blu-Rays I have picked up since we moved in.

But I have been thinking about my Warhammer 40000 armies that are boxed up. Over the past few years,  40k  has changed. As each new codex is released something new gets added like Thunderwolf cavalry for the space wolves, The Stormraven for the Blood Angels and the god awful “fantastic four” land speeder for the Dark Angels. Don’t get me wrong I know that they need to make new units to keep the “Army” fresh after all all us veterans are not going to go out and buy a re-tooled sprue of marines just because it has a nice new box. But that is far from the point, for me their is nothing left in the 40k universe. Each new wedge that GW pushes into the background pushes me away from it.

Now everywhere I look on the internet all I see is Kick-starter campaigns for fledgling games all trying to get a foot on the ladder. Some grab my attention but most get pushed aside one that did grab my attention was the Mongoose Publishings Judge Dredd kick-starter last year. But in the past I was Burned by Mongoose with their Starship Troopers miniatures line. It all boiled down to the fact I spent a large sum of money on the starship troopers line with them at Salute model show some years ago. Only to read on their forum that they would no longer be supporting the game a few days later, I would not have minded but I had a long conversation about the game with the guys on the stand and their was no mention of it being dropped.

Any way back on track I missed out on the Dredd Kick-starter, and it seems people are getting their goods. Now Mongoose have put up details of their new kick-starter

Now Rogue Trooper is one of my all time favourites from 2000AD magazine it is also what got me in to 40K in the first place I am sorly tempted to jump right in feet first with this and go for the major pledge £200 which gives me 10 choices from the list.

As it stands now The Rulebook, Souther Squad, Nort Squad and Rogue himself have been achieved as the basic package.

also unlocked over the weekend was the Nort elite Assault Squad and the Nort and Souther officers sets. With the Skorpion Battle wagon and Venus Bluegenes coming in with the next goal.

Now I need something to fill the 40k gap is this it? I have 26 days before the kick starter finishes what do i do……………………………
