The Icarus Project Sci-Fi Kickstarter Launches

September 7, 2015 by brennon

Icarus Miniatures have launched their Kickstarter for the Icarus Project where you can get your hands on Starter Sets for both the Alliance and the Nexus. They’re also aiming to unlock new races and characters for the game if they hit their stretch goals…

Icarus Project

The Starter Sets

The two factions that are the focus of this Kickstarter are both the Alliance and the Nexus.

Alliance Starter Set

In the Alliance Starter you get a Gunslinger, Female Outrider (with sniper rifle), three Troopers (including one with a LMG) and a Female Trooper with assault rifle.

Nexus Starter Set

The Nexus Starter Set contains another six miniatures including a Nexus Assassin, Nexus Grunts, Feral Nexus and a Nexus Brawler. I would have to say that as much as I like the troopers from the Alliance the Nexus are an awesome alien race in design.

Stretch Goals

The current stretch goals are all lain out in front of you as the campaign starters too. As mentioned above there are some neat characters and more troops on the way…

Stretch Goals #1

Stretch Goals #2

If they can get to General Varakos with the stretch goals then I’m going to be a happy bunny. It would be interesting to see if his model is a bit more animated in the final sculpt or if he retains the look of the concept.

As the campaign goes on it looks like the stretch goals also alternate between the Nexus and Alliance hoping to flesh them out as factions.

The Miniatures

Everybody wants to know what the models are going to be like in terms of scale and Icarus have answered with this image below. The models stand a little higher than most standard 28mm at 35mm.

Scale Comparison

I think the models are looking great right now and if you’d like to have one for yourself they are selling the mercenary Gabriel Cross already over on their webstore.

If you want to try before you pledge then the rules for the Icarus Project are also FREE to download HERE giving you a taster of the game.

Are you liking the look of this game and its miniatures?
