Kickstarter thingy....it lives!
« on: September 21, 2014, 08:39:29 PM »
Kickstarter is a go! That's right, have a little piece of me forever in your home without the need for a costly restraint order when I outlive my welcome! Even if you don't want the space stuff, I can recommend the islands, balance them on your tummy in the bath and pretend you are Neptune punishing unworthy worshippers with a radox storm!

This will be a new addition to the KS, should be fun for both xwing and attack wing games...

When baby space worm grows out of it's birth rock it breaks free and roams the local asteroid fields gathering debris and asteroids to build a bigger protective shell, the result is....

Daddy worm!

I'm attempting to ruin your plans to keep backers away by passing on your KS link to all the people I know who play X-Wing... hopefully you can forgive me!  :lol:

Really excellent work - nice to see you've hit your goal and kept going! Hope this goes really well for you. (^_^)

stop it Martin! I have an evergrowing pile of miniatures to paint!

Been working on some replacements for the cardboard tokens...

Ever wondered why there is so much debris in space???


pesky space mines! that's why!


As if huge rocks in your way wasn't enough!


Oops


Wall of Death!


Also made up some cargo containers



Kessel Slalom run


While they tend not to be on the board long i decided to make up the seismic charges and proton bombs too, they can make nice objectives in home made scenarios



I have kept everything within the dimensions of the original tokens


The mine 'lasers' can be removed for storage, we play a fun house rule that if you accidentally knock a beam out, your ships takes the damage...careful clumsy!

Are you going to be producing any of this after the kickstarter or is this a one off opportunity?

Hi Snailracer, they will eventually be sold through our website but we aim to fulfil all the ks pledges first so that may not be until early next year...

in the meantime....

After a week away in the Peak District I had to hit the ground running and make up for lost time!

Made up a third and final (for now) fort comprising of a large two part island. Use it as a whole or break it down into two 'edge' fortifications and create a nasty bottleneck!




Finally found a little painting time so will bob some finished pics of the other two forts on here tomorrow :)

Only a couple more days on the current kickstarter, think there may well have to be another one sometime soon, far too many ideas still swirling around my noggin!

Third and final (for now) fort had a bit of paint slapped on it :)





All 3 to represent a formidable gauntlet, even captain Chuck Norris would think twice!
