I finally have the new Mantic Tunneler from their Kickstarter which ended exactly two years ago.
It is quite a nice looking kit and appears to snap together but there are no instructions. There seem to be some optional parts in the kit, I really can’t remember what I was expecting anyway or what the options are meant to be. I will have to Google some instructions or maybe just some other models finished by other people.This image seems like a good place to start.
Apparently I may actually get this Mantic Kickstarter model soon. The Kickstarter ended a few weeks shy of TWO YEARS ago. This was the only model I wanted in their Warpath range as I though it would make a good tunneler for my Steam Wars Mechanica army.
So with luck it may arrive before the end of September.
I like the way this has turned out, it will look great in the Steampunk Mechanica force crewed by a couple of Automotans.
The colour scheme matches the rest of the army quite nicely.
I had been doing a good job of keeping away from Kickstarters until a friend sent me a link this morning for one ending in a few hours…
This is a West Wind Kickstarter for some great Weird War II Mechs and I can’t resist a good Mech, or three.
I like the West Wind SOTR range and these new models will also be usable in Konflict 47, Steam Wars and some of the freebie stretch goals will be great in games like Rogue Stars.
As if cool Mechs are not enough, I like the look of this German ball tank, the Panzerkampfrad.
A rare event indeed, a Kickstarter that delivers BEFORE the estimated date. These were due in December and arrived a week early. Prodos take note…
These sci-fi steampunky figures are from Lead Adventure Miniatures, one of my favourite figure manufacturers, a small outfit, but some fantastic models with great character and detail.
I wanted these for engineers and crew on the rather large Aircraft Carrier I am (slowly) working on.
I popped on to Tabletop Gaming News the other day for a quick look to see what is happening in the world of toy soldiers only to find that eight out of the first ten articles are about new Kickstarters. I have dabbled in a few Kickstarters over the last few years, but I find it amazing that there is so much capacity for more and more Kickstarters.
The hunger for more and more games, especially board games, just dilutes the amount of time we as players have to actually play the same game more than a few times. I struggle as it is to find the time to play the games we already have.
I have just joined in on the Astropolis miniatures Kickstarter, but this is quite a small offering that will be delivered in about two months and I was only going for a few models.
