Kickstart Monday: Discover New Worlds With Giant Mechs

Welcome to Kickstart Monday!!!! This is our weekly series featuring 2 or more crowdfunding projects in the tabletop gaming industry. I scour over platforms like KickstarterGamefound, and Indigogo to find projects that interest me. People would ask me what I think is worth backing. Since I was providing these recommendations all ready, what better way to do it than post a weekly blog about projects I am interested in.

Stay informed when new Kickstart Monday projects come out by following us on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter and following the #KickstartMonday hashtag.

This week on Kickstart Monday I couldn’t help myself but talk about the new Robotech Miniature Game and then a really cool planetary exploration game. I hope you are as excited as I am. Let’s take a look at these projects!

Robotech Macross DOG FIGHT- The Miniatures Game

Robotech Macross DOG FIGHT- The Miniatures Game from Minitech Games looks to be a much different game than its predecessor from Paladium Games. In this game you will play out much more skirmish level encounters that more well play out individual dog fights between forces. Pit mighty Veritech Fighters of the UEDF against the alien forces such as the Zentraedi.

There are different scales and sizes of games that you can play so you will be able to include more mechs. Each round of the game is broken into four phases. In the first phase, you will plan, in secret, where each of your miniatures will move under your command. Then you will execute those movements based on your plan. Interestingly enough, movement is resolved simultaneously with rules for handling conflicts where models would move into the same space/location. The Cross-Event phase then occurs. In this phase, any mechs who happened to cross paths during the Movement phase will do a quick round of close combat. The round is then wrapped up in the Combat Phase where mechs will be able to resolve all of their ranged attacks at other targets within their firing arcs.

The game ends when all mechs have been eliminated from one side. It is possible that in the same round all mechs are eliminated from both sides. In this case, the player effectively with the smaller or weaker rated force wins.

If you love Robotech and are looking for another miniature game with lighter rules and cool miniatures then you should consider supporting this project.

Stellar Expedition

Stellar Expedition from Wulfhorn Games will take you to where no life form has gone before. In the game, you will take on the role of captain of a team from one of the four factions in the game and traverse a gate in space that will take you to new worlds and discoveries. While exploring these new locations you will be attempting to accomplish expeditions. Completing these will help advance you towards victory.

Stellar Expedition is not just another 4x game. Where most games in this genre are focused ultimately on territory control, space combats, and who can dominate the galaxy this game changes it up and orientates around exploration and completing expeditions. Expeditions ultimately score you points and at the end of the game, it will be expedition points and not crushing all of those to your point of view. After all, it’s a big galaxy and there’s far more to discover than just the small portion discovered during gameplay.

If you were hoping for a board game that would help you feel convey’s that Star Trek exploration feel in a unique game and universe then you should consider supporting this project!

Kickstart Monday: Amazing Dark Elves Join Forces with Creepy Cultists

After a week off, we’re back with a new Kickstart Monday for you. This time we are diving into the lands of miniatures with two really good crowd funded projects that should get you excited for these figures. Both of these projects feature real figures that are planned to be manufactured, not just 3D printed models!

These 28mm Eastern Dark Elf miniatures from Mirliton feature all of the models you would want to include in a fantasy dark elf army. These models are sculpted in 3D modeling software, but are being manufactured in white metal to be delivered to backers.

These models all have are themed around more middle eastern look and feel. This makes them really unique against other companies that are producing dark elf models. Whether you are building an old Warhammer Fantasy army, Ninth Age, Kings of War, or really any other system that uses 28mm figures these are sure to give you a really unique look at feel to your army on the tabletop.

Cultists and Zombies

Cultists and Zombies from RBJ Game Company features an assortment of 28mm figures cast in white metal. Not only is there a big and terrifying mythos monster, but an assortment of really unique zombies and cultists. Models are all sculpted to 28mm scale and so should roughly blend in with other miniatures of that scale.

These figures would be great to supplement a GM’s needs for a mythos RPG or a player who is looking to play a mythos skirmish wargame. If you are one of those people you should definitely check this one out.

Favorite Memories and Plastic Treasures Await You in Dougan’s Delve

The Lords and Heroes of Dougan’s Delve

It’s been a long time since I spent time thinking about Warhammer Fantasy. At the end of things, when the End Times were upon us, our lives were changed forever as Games-Workshop announced the end of Warhammer Fantasy. When I set up my new game room I was able to put out the army on display (for the first time ever). It made me excited to think about getting the army back on the table.

A Walk Down Memory Lane

The Dwarf army was the very first army I ever thought about collecting when I originally purchased the Warhammer Fantasy 5th Edition starter set. Yes, I was enamored with the valiant Brettonian Knights and the watery Lizardmen of that set. Indeed, even my first games were with those two armies. There was that glint of gold in my eye though as I dreamed of building that first dwarf army.
