First I'm not associated with either of the two companies involved in this, but I have bought a lot of resin from Acheson Creations and always been very pleased with it. I am a designer of a Victorian Era Bug fighting game, The Hive and the Flame. With those disclaimers out of the way I want to bring this excellent project to as wide an audience as possible. There are three facets to the miniatures/terrain here. One is the human troops, the second the bugs and finally the tunnels. Each of these promises to provide excellent product within its niche and the creators have been wise enough to structure the reward levels and add ons so you don't have to get things you don't want. I don't need any high tech humans so I'm only getting Bugs and Tunnels.

The Tunnel set has over 20 sections for 100.00. This looks like it would function for dungeon adventures as well as science fiction ones.

The Bugs themselves look very nice and as I say (even though I hope to bring out my own line of bugs at some point) Giant Bugs are Giant Bugs. I only ask that they look good and scary on the table top. These certainly look the business!

Take a look at this excellent Kickstarter and see if they have things you'll want to throw on your game table!

Not thinking I can join in, but allow me to say, 'wicked!'

Having dealt with both concerns in the past, they have my best wishes.

Thanks for the post.
BTW There's a new secret pledge coming out in the next day or two. Watch for more info real soon..

Ed the Two Hour Wargames guy01 Feb 2018 1:47 p.m. PST

Here's info on the new pledge.


tsofian Sponsoring Member of TMP02 Feb 2018 5:48 a.m. PST

They are 75% there! With the new options they offer very flexible rewards. These products can have a lot of uses in several scales (Crap the bugs would be HUGE against 6mm human troops!).

Help spread the word. Depending upon when these come out you might be seeing them at Origins. If not this year then next year!

Ed the Two Hour Wargames guy04 Feb 2018 12:44 p.m. PST

94% with 8 days left.

tsofian Sponsoring Member of TMP04 Feb 2018 6:02 p.m. PST

Over the Top! On to the stretch goals!

Will it be possible to buy Bugs, Troopers & Rules only?

Ed the Two Hour Wargames guy05 Feb 2018 10:51 p.m. PST

Let me get the info from Craig. I'm sure there's a way. I'll get back to you in a day or two.

Ed the Two Hour Wargames guy06 Feb 2018 2:41 p.m. PST

Starship trooper
Craig said no problem. Email me at

with specific numbers and he will look at making up a new pledge. Put Bugs Kickstarter on the contents line so I know its you.

The alternative is grabbing a current pledge and when the survey comes out he can adjust it to what you want.
