Deadzone: Kickstarter Update
Mantic Games haben ein Update zu Deadzone Infestation veröffentlicht.
Die wichtigste Ankündigung betrifft das Material einiger Modelle, die auf Kunststoff des Dust-Studios umgestellt werden sollen:
We’ve had all of the Deadzone: Infestation miniatures sculpted now – and we think they are looking really good!
Many of the miniatures on this Kickstarter are metal or resin, but having received the prints of some of the figures after they’d been sculpted… we think putting them in plastic is the best way to do them justice – particularly when some of them, like the Piper, have such fine (read: breakable) details, or are big and chunky (read: heavy and would require pinning) like the Plague Aberration!
These plastic miniatures are being made by Dust Studios, the manufacturer behind the Dust Tactics and Dust Warfare games, and the great miniatures in Dungeon Saga.
These figures are due to arrive in February, and we will start shipping the Kickstarter complete from then.
Here is a list of miniatures going into plastic. Metal figures not included in this list will remain in the material originally stated.
Originally the plan was to supply one Progenitor body with two different weapon options. As a result of the move to plastic, you will now get two Progenitors, one with one weapon, the other body with the other weapon.
N7-117, Forward Observer, Kickstarter Exclusive
Forward Observers are high-ranking agents of the Council of Seven, providing eyes and ears that report only to the most senior commanders. One such unit is N7-117, who was stationed aboard Captain Morrow’s Enforcer Dropship when it was blasted out of space, leaving the P12 stranded on Exham against impossible odds. Separated from the survivors after the crash, N7-117 knows only too well what would happen if the Veer-myn were allowed to escape Exham IV and unleash the bleeding sickness into the wider galaxy. They must be stopped, at any cost…
As stated in update 28, the N7-117 art was not final, and we’ve now worked up this forward observer into a style more befitting of a soldier operating behind enemy lines, and more closely in line with the Enforcer range.
That leaves only these last two sculpts to show-off: the Rebel leader Adrienne Nikolovski and the Ogre Terminator with Mini-gun backer model:
Forge Father Steel Warriors
We have had the first test shots of the Forge Father Steel Warrior sprue back from our manufacturer.
The sprue makes five figures, and will arrive in a bag with an extra set of components clipped off in a separate bag.
As you can see, it’s quite simply packed full of options, and we have had to make a few tweaks to the number of heavy weapons just to get it to fit on the tool we funded!
Außerdem gibt es erste Designentwürfe zum Regelbuch. Wichtig: Die Texte und Grafiken sind Platzhalter, die Texte stammen beispielsweise aus den Warpath-Regeln.
Mantic Games ist unter anderem bei unserem Partner Radaddel erhältlich.
