Age of Tyrants
« on: February 07, 2016, 03:07:56 AM »
 Has anyone backed this new Kickstarter?

 It is 6mm scale and set in the Void Universe.Link below for more info and to check-out the pictures.

 There are four factions being released so far.Junkers,Viridians,VASA and Syntha.

 For me it has to be Junkers with some Viridians for good measure.

 From what i have heard if this does well we could see a similar thing for Fantasy too ;).

i've been looking at it closely, since i have a bunch of the 28mm stuff too. the tanks are cuties but the tiny troops are even better.  don't think i'll be getting into it though.  prodos' super cheesecake space crusade kickstarter on the other hand... ahem.

also you guys are aware some of the syntha and viridian models were originally going to be 2nd edition capitol and cybertronic PVs right?  the models had their big shouderpads taken off and were put into the 28mm game after 2nd edition WZ fizzled out...  same i think with their japanese faction in urban war and mishima.

 I have loads of the 28mm stuff.This new game will save on space and be great for larger scale engagements.Being able to play on smaller playing area too is a bonus.

 Going to be getting one of each Junker unit unlocked so far and some Viridians too.Love the CLAU's for all of the factions.

 Also got an order in for some 15mm miniatures from Ground Zero Games.

 Trying to cut back on my collection and stick to only a few game systems too.That way i may be-able to concentrate on projects.

If I were getting into it I'd see if I could build a list spamming Junker exosuits kek.

 Sandrunners and Quads would be good too.Just seen a video of the design of the Junker flyer which looks really nice.Need more money.Link below.

 Down to the last three days now on the KS.

 There have been more pledges and this has unlocked lots of new Platoons.

i've always considered getting the 28mm junker quads and dunebuggies just cause theyre so unique. putting some warzone pilots on them would be great. same with their camels. very dark eden.

 The Junkers are really cool as a faction.I still have lots of the Reptile Sandrunners too which are really nice miniatures.

 The Age of Tyrants KS is now in its final 37 hours.Link to the latest update below.

 Upped my pledge to level 4 which gets me two original pieces of art work by Wayne England and freebies too.
