    I saw this game get on kickstarter after a years-long campaign of showing stuff on facebook and youtube. The rules seem relatively simple but deep and the small-squad formt and customization seem really cool.

    Anyone planning on grabbing this? I got myself a deluxe box and am drooling over all of the expansions.

    In our local meta we have something like a dozen Warlord pledges.

    Because no one has posted it yet, here's one of their figures painted with those colorshift paints, looks very nice!



    Oddly enough, i'm more interested in the drones than the main figures, go figure

    I'm actually looking at it, but I'm not sure it make sense to go with it (for me).
    I'll have a look at the rules but so far there's quite a few cons:
    - no localised rules. Not that my game group can't handle english rules but translating on the fly is always an extra effort you want to avoid in game
    - I would tend to go all-in and it's quite pricey (not that it's not worth it)
    - another amount of mini to paint
    - we're already submerged with games we don't have time/opportunity to play

    Still ...

    Robots !!!

    The updates are exciting... I can’t wait for the GoF one, they’re the faction I’m most excited to see.

    Yeah I met these guys at Essen Spiel last year, the models are gorgeous. (and they gave @Solar and I some pretty sick T shirts)

    They ran through the game which seemed pretty nice and tight, I was going to back for the whole kit and kaboodle but fortunately they'd sold out of the earlybird all in pledges after 27 minutes so now I've just gone for the delux.

    Pretty sure @Flipswitch was going in for this as well.
