Well the Warmachine: Tactics Kickstarter will end in 35 hours; but that doesn’t mean the end of all the fun. There is still money from Paypal to be factored into the total, they have already surpassed the total needed for Mercs to be a playable faction. This is good news for Retribution players too, as this brings their debut into the game; just a step closer to realisation.
On another side of the game, the Scottish Masters is very near completion; with just some small matters to be taken care of; before registration goes live. We have decided to do registration through Ranking HQ, which also allows players to pay their entry fee at the same time. With just over a month, it’s getting to the point that it is now or never on this project. We hope the experience for everyone is what we hope to achieve and that it can then be expanded next year to a 64 player event. I think I have stressed more about making registration and payment easy for the players; than any other aspect of the event.
Whatever happens, this weekend is going to be very exciting; with Kickstarter and the Scottish Masters (hopefully going live).
So unless you have missed it, Privateer Press Interactive; in partnership with Whitemoon Dreams kicked off their Warmachine:Tactics Kickstarter computer game in explosive style. If you not sure what this is, check out the video
Within 35 hours, they have broken and fulfilled their initial target of $550,000. 8 Days into the 30 day limit, they are nearing that magical $1m target. Check out the Kickstarter, as stretch goals are being added almost daily; with the speed at which this is being backed. Oh and if you’re outside the US; take a look at the updates BEFORE pledging as shipping is a lot cheaper than initially expected.
I’ve pledged at the $40 (Deadeye) level, which will give me the digital download of the game + an exclusive Kickstarter only model & coin due to be released in April; before the general release of the standard model in June next year. After all the Kickstarter models have been send, the moulds will be broken and never produced again.
If you’re a fan of the tabletop game already, check out and subscribe to the Whitemoon Dreams Dev Diaries; where they hope to show what they are doing to bring this game to life.
Last month I mentioned a delivery, which I had been expecting for a while. Thankfully it arrived a few days before I headed to the Nationals, so it gave me time to clean them up in the hotel.
Gamers of a certain age, will recognise the similarities with a children’s cartoon from the 1980’s. So to get the chance to pledge to a Kickstarter with models that looked similar to those characters; was just a must have.
The wizard model at the back will be my Painting Oath pledge for July, though I will hopefully be painting them all this month. I would like to add a special thank you to the guys at Impact Miniatures, who were very helpful and efficient; when a problem arose with the delivery. Now I’m off you watch the boxset of said cartoon, which my loving wife bought me several years ago (she says I look like Presto).
