Kickstarters…………………..

Posted: November 25, 2015 in Aliens, All Quiet On The Martian Front, Conan, Deadzone, Kickstarters, Zombicide

Its that time again, its time to see what is going on with the various Kick starter projects that I have backed.

So here we go.

All Quite On The Martian Front: So its been nearly a month since the last update, and it would seem that no one has received anything. Now AD said that they aimed to have shipping completed by the end of November, and with 5 days to go it looks highly unlikely. Its a shame but AD are ruining their reputation, this was apparent by their Fantasy KS project A Crush Of Iron. Which after a promising start came to an end with AD cancelling the project.

Aliens Vs Predator: Well it seems that Prodos have upset a large portion of KS backers by releasing 6 products to retail (Predalien, Queen, Warriors, Crusher, Power Loader, and Hell Hounds). Add into that that everything outside of Poland has been closed down and that the Facebook page may be closed, has added a lot of “fuel” to the fire that things going wrong behind the scenes. A new group has been set up on FB for backers to “vent” their frustration. And to be truthful the backers that are commenting all seem to be complete dicks (something which social media seems to bred like wild fire). As I have said time and time again its a licensed product and the approval phase can take some time, that’s why the likes of River Horse, Games Workshop, and FFG did not make announcement until the products had been approved.

Conan: Still Plodding along. Nothing new.

Deadzone  Infestation: Still plodding along, nothing exciting has been posted (apart from a couple of painted Veer myn) hopefully some news will happen as delivery is only a few months away!

Zombicide Black Plague: Production copies of the base game were posted up on the KS page but production of everything else has been disrupted and looks like it will not be completed until the end of January 2016.

Warpath: Another KS by mantic, which I back at the $1.00 pledge. But why did I only pledge at a $1.00? well it boils down to in the end Mantic seemed to be getting desperate and just added stuff for the sake of it. Like the Mars Attacks models. When I sat down and worked it out 90% of the stuff that was offered, I already own (or will do when Infestation arrives) most of the. And to be fair I am not that intressed in another “mass” battles game. So I went for the $1.00 so I can pick the add-ons that I want.
