WGA is doing something different for them – crowdfunding a new Death Fields faction so they can release multiple kits at one time.

They look very post-apocalyptic or raggedy militia style SF – and have the potential to have WGAs first plastic vehicle kit.

Good thing the future has duct tape.

Flashman – I could not find site rules regarding promoting crowdfunding campaigns, and did not want to push it.

I've followed this campaign, but find it kind of odd, as it seems the main sticking point with WA products is the time it takes to actually make the molds, and cast the sprues, and stuff the boxes and get them shipped out.

I have had a post taken down when I mentioned a crowdfunding campaign. There really should be a way to mention them as I, for one, would like to talk about not only what is out there (I often find out too late, but discuss what the offers are, what they could be used for, etc.

This one I would never have found had I not known about it, as it is on some page I had never heard of before. Now I wonder just how many sites I have never heard of, and what's on them. I still have not figures out a surefire way of finding all the gaming figures stuff on Kickstarter- it's kind of hit or miss in searching.

These would be great for the Stargrave "pirate fleets" soldiers

I have seen posts here for KS campaigns that have ENDED, and sometimes have been able to late pledge, and other times have been too late.

I have also seen a few posts about KS campaigns that are running.

If you are familiar with Wargames Atlantic, you know that they make an eclectic mix of historical, fantasy, and science fiction minis. Primarily in hard plastic, but they also have an STL shop/program. This is their first crowdfunding thing – and the first time they are releasing a whole range at once – most of the time, they release a kit, and if it sells well enough, they may eventually release additional kits.

Their Science Fiction line is called "Death Fields", and there is talk about eventually creating a rules set for them. Many of their customers buy them to use as humans for 40k – imperial guard, cultists, renegades, etc., others use them for games like Stargrave, or minis agnostic rules=sets. They mix and match pretty well with Stargrave minis, GW humans, etc. They are more "heroic" than Wargames Atlantic's historical minis, but many people are happy with kitbashes/conversions of the two different types.

The Damned faction is a post-apocalyptic style renegade faction – and looks great for a lot of renegade/cultist uses.

While several sets have already been unlocked – troops, command, heavy weapons, cavalry, "Brutes" (ogres) – "hounds" attack lizards with handlers are close to being unlocked, then female troops, and artillery (including a quad howitzer that I am really liking the look of), and other possibilities,

Duct tape….the handy-man's secret weapon

The female troops were unlocked, the next big thing will be the artillery.

Females look fantastic.

Also this line would make a great xenos rampant army.

Probably won't bite just yet but at some point defiantly.

Voting has opened for additional stretch goals.

It's the last day of the campaign.

They have posted a list of what is one the various sprues you can choose as your bonuses.
