    And usually these things take a year or so before delivery? Hmm...

    Their main advantage over a lot of companies is that they're making the miniatures and assembling in house, and it tends to be waiting for miniatures from China that delays a lot of Kickstarters.

    Or packaging. Some companies totally underestimate how much work putting the stuff in the boxes is. Hawk even kind of died over it. But i guess CB should have that down.

    really depends on the production schedule. I'd expect CB to actually start making the basic models as soon as the KS goes live (or as soon as it funds, whichever), and the rest of the models as they're unlocked.

    CB has a huge delivery advantage over most of these companies (including CMON) since CB is making the minis in-house. That avoids 2-3 months of minis stuck on a slow boat from China, not to mention all the other crap that can go wrong. I mean, one KS had their container from the factory get stuck in a traffic jam at the gate to the port, missed the scheduled boat by 5 minutes. So their Chinese freight forwarder had to find a new ship and get the container booked there. Once that new ship arrived in the port of Los Angeles, it was stuck in a longshoreman's strike for 8+ weeks. Once the container was finally unloaded from the ship and put onto a truck to get to the company, well, there was a hurricane that blew through and caused massive flooding. Add another 3 weeks delay. Then the company had to break down the container and pack everything, which took about 3 weeks longer than they thought. Total delay caused by being 5min late to the pier? over 5 months.

    Delivery around AdeptiCon (in April) would be ideal. It would be rather rough on CB if delivery was around GenCon, since that is when N4 is dropping. I'm hoping CB is planning on an April release of Defiance, the stuff they had at GenCon looked pretty close to production and was really only waiting on minis.

    At Interpretation Carlos was not giving some date they aim for (as also success of the KS affects it) but it did sound more like a range of 9-12 month. They wanted to do it under a year as a target but did not promise anything.

    It reminded me a lot of Level 7 Omega Protocol, without the dungeon master.

    It was hard to say what the finished game will be like as the scenario was a simple one and Bostria explained that we had upgrades already to make it easier, and we started in an advanced location. At this point I think level 7 seemed more in depth and fun to me, although the switch mechanic makes things a bit more dynamic than level 7.

    The aggro point mechanic was cool where the more violent players may get target more but the AI also went for the least aggressive sometimes.

    I honestly really loved the fan made remote racing game and I liked it even more than defiance haha. It was like Gaslands mixed with mario cart made simpler. The creator of the game is in discussion with CB for potential future release.

    I’ll add, I played the Defiance demo with my brother who I’ve also played Level 7 Omega Protocol with And he preferred Defiance.

    Looking forward to it as in the rules aren't online somewhere? Also I have to ask did Ariadna get represented with a racing MUL?

    I've only heard about it, I have never seen the fan-made rules (and would really like to!).

    I understand it was something like Formula De, but with some F-Zero type elements where certain squares would boost your speed or whatever.


    Probably a second-line Nomad REM.

    Aww bummer. Might be fun to convert a racing mul with a sweet V8 if it ever took off.

    Yeah, that was a perfect storm of delays.
