Well it is safe to say that the kickstarter for Modiphius’ game of WWII Lovecraftian adventures has been a phenomenal success and with only a few hours left we got a look at some exciting new heroes and villains minis.
These previews show a great deal of character in the various sculpts and they will be perfect for representing your investigators in standard role playing sessions and more miniature focused tabletop games.
Called Achtung Cthulhu: The Power of the Gods, this will allow you to engage in super-powered action against the forces of the mythos. As they say “With ‘Godlike’ powers, you are larger than life — but Cthulhu is larger than you!”
Finally we have an exciting announcement for all budding players of Achtung! Cthulhu as Modiphius have announced that, thanks to the funds from kickstarter, they will be opening the Modiphians Community.
“YOUR Community. YOUR World. At £140k we are putting in place the foundations to serve you better, a store, community and much more. In particular, the Modiphians is a community where ANYONE can submit content for the Achtung! Cthulhu universe and other worlds that we will be releasing. Imagine YOUR stories, characters, plots, creatures, villains, locations, adventures and fiction – it’s YOUR world so help bring it to life YOUR way.Backers at the £35 PDF Master Bonus Pledge Level and above will automatically get free Lifetime Membership (it will be a one off fee to join otherwise). YOU will vote on content to be released on a regular basis in a special Dossier and the creators of the content will get paid! YOU will get a free copy and other great bonuses as well as the fun of voting up, or down, cool ideas, discussing their merits with other members and knowing you are part of our world. It will be integrated with our webstore and we hope to add a system to reward you with points for purchases, product reviews, commenting, sharing on Twitter, Facebook etc. You would be able to cash those points in for more cool stuff. Sound good? Then help share this news with your gaming friends and let’s bust through that goal and help turn all of our great ideas into more cool.” – Modiphius, Achtung! Cthulhu Kickstarter
Definitely a lot to get excited about. I got my first taste of some of the new directions Achtung! Cthulhu is headed at Tabletop Day and I am really excited about the possibility this kickstarter has opened for Modiphius.
Now is your last chance, head to the kickstarter and make your final pledge. Or Cthulhu will come for you!
