Over on facebook the other day Grindhouse Games announced that Incursion will be getting a reboot via a Kickstarter campaign (not another one, that will make 6 this year!!!!!!)

Rumour has it that this time the APE suits will be made in plastic. Now plastic miniatures have come along way in the past few years. I remember buying a box of Space Rangers which contained 50 plastic models in 2 poses.

But back to Incursion a few teaser pics have been posted.

Yesterday my pledge sheet came through for Mantics Deadzone, And after much head scratching I figured out what I wanted and came in $270.00 over my pledge (oh dear)

With my basic pledge (Early Bird Strike team $146.00)  I get 77 models and 11 sprues of scenery, Add on the that 126 extra models, 16 sprues of scenery, AI deck for solo play and the hardback book……………..

Now all i have to do is sit back and wait for december……………

So in my last post I spoke of the classic GW game Warhammer Quest (WHQ for short). Well over the weekend a few of us got together and battled our way through a few dungeons, we used the Skaven from the current edition of WHFB: Island Of Blood and the Night Goblins from the last edition Battle For Skull Pass. In all we played 3 games on friday night and 2 on saturday night.

For the Heros we used some models that i had picked up some years ago from Heresy Miniatures.

Andy who does everything from sculpting the models, to packing and shipping them, is a great guy and does a wonderful range of  models which would be great for any dungeon bash.

Now i fancy some sole games……………..

So the new lair is up and running (well mostly it just needs power), and the time has come to clear out some of the vast amounts of crap I have collected over the years. I have already sold off some stuff on ebay with more to be listed once its all sorted out, but that’s another tale…………

Anyway I had an encounter with my old friend Andrew a few weeks ago and we finally meet up at the weekend, and we had a great time catching up. One of the things we talked about was Warhammer Fantasy, now thanks to Andrew he got me into playing WHFB. I had been playing 40k and epic for a few years but had never played WHFB, this in turn lead to a classic GW game………………

Warhammer Quest, many friday and saturday nights were spent in the lair mk1 battling through a dungeon filled with orcs,goblins, skaven, etc…….

I used to play the barbarian or knight of bretonnia, Andrew would be the wizard or wood elf wardancer, james would be the dwarf or trollslayer, and david would be the elf or witch hunter. As with most things time past and we all drifted apart, and Andrew admitted he still had the wardancer model.

And I still have the copy of Warhammer Quest, granted all of the original models are long gone but i do have some of the newer style night goblins and orc boyz all i need is a few skaven and a few other odds and sods and i can play some games………….

So a month ago I backed mantic games dead zone on kickstarter. Well last night it finished at $1.216.482 which smashed the target of $50.000 that was set. In fact the whole campaign has turned in to a monster, my pledge of early bird strike team ($146.00) has netted me 90+ models a heap of scenery. Add to that $254.00 that I added on top to buy some other bits and pieces, now all I have to do is work out what I need.

And hopefully the new lair will be finished off this week………………
