As I went to bed last night I had a warm glow knowing that my AQOTMF Wave 2 was on its way, however that changed this morning when I read an e-mail from Kickstarter about Aliens Vs Predator which was as follows

This is a message from Kickstarter’s Integrity team. We’re writing to inform you that a project you backed, Alien vs Predator The Miniatures Game, is the subject of an intellectual property dispute. The law requires that we remove the project from public view until the dispute is resolved (please see our Copyright Policy and Trademark Policy for more info). Because the project already ended successfully, your pledge hasn’t been affected. The creator should still be able to move forward with the project (and send any unfulfilled rewards). If you have any questions, though, you can still message the creator from the project page.

Thanks so much for your patience and cooperation,
Kickstarter

This has caused rather a storm on Facebook and various forums with people claiming Fox had pulled the plug, GW were after Prodos for copying Space Hulk (which was ripped straight from Alien/Aliens), Some other company had the rights to make a game, the list goes on.

How ever Prodos issued a statement this morning

Hello everyone. Sorry to cause panic. We (Prodos Games) have made a clerical error when cleaning up our Kickstarter maintenance page. If you go to up you will see that there are two un-started projects. We were hoping to get them deleted (just to tidy up our work space), but didn’t convey our request clearly. As such the AvP website has been temporarily closed in error. We are working to get it back up. Hopefully it will return in all its glory within 24 hours. Sorry to panic everyone. (Just goes to show a tidy workspace isn’t always the best thing)!

In fact it is still going on now with people making up rumours, and only time will tell us what is going on.

My point of view is it was a simple mistake, and not one of the wild rumours that are flying around!

Shadows of brimstone: No news FFP do not reply to messages through the KS, and a number of people have been blocked from posting on their Facebook page. Overall I am not impressed with FFP and their customer service I have sent them a message to find out what is going on but have heard nothing back from them. They will be added to the wall of shame for company’s who I will never deal with again. I think the game may need to be renamed “smells Of Bullshit”

Tablescapes: No news as to if I get my tiles this side of Christmas or some stage in Q1 2015.

Incursion: Again no news.

Deadzone: A preview of the plastic enforcer peacekeepers, and that’s it.

Mars Attacks: No news on the Hardback Book.

Zombicide: Again no news.

Afterlife: The Anvil guys have built a new “casting”booth to allow them to carry on casting if it gets too cold (resin takes longer to cure in the cold)

I have also backed Fire Team Zero a WWW2/horror (weird world war 2) board game.I have only gone in for $1.00 at the moment but will upgrade to a full pledge before it ends.

 

Oh and did I mention that my wave 2 All Quite On The Martian Front package has shipped!
