Well the countdown is getting shorter, but the backers for the Warmachine: Tactics kickstarter is getting bigger by the day. Just over 15,000 backers, a total of $1, 200,000 + pledges from Paypal totallying $7,000; they are very close to opening one of the best stories in WM (imo anyway).
Called Dark Seduction, it tells the tale of two sisters; separated and brought up on opposite sides of the war. Victoria Haley, Commander of the Cygnarian forces and Deneghra, Warwitch of the Cryxian armies that raid Immoren. Many doubt Deneghra even knows her true name, as one night during a Cryxian raid on her town; an apparition called Nightmare stole her away from her family and her sister. Raised by the Cryx, her former life dissolved slowly to be replaced by one of corruption and devious scheming; within the power play of leaders. Seemingly a loyal second in command to Asphyxious, Deneghra learned her lessons well; to the point that not even her commander is safe from her machinations.
After this stretch goal has been reached, the next two are ones that will please a lot of players. Magnus the Traitor and his battlegroup, with Retribution of Scyrah to follow. So if you want your chance to be part of this greatness, you can pledge here for as little as $20 for the game. With just 3 days left, I really do hope they get to bring in the Retribution; otherwise those Angry Elves will be (even more) insufferable for the rest of eternity.
