Kickstarter Madness

Just as with the news we’ve been slammed by Kickstarters as September comes to a close. Here are just a few of our picks…

  • Warpath Begins – Mantic have charged off through multiple stretch goals already for their Warpath Kickstarter and it shows no signs of slowing down
  • Urban Apocalypse – Battle Systems have begun to create tabletops straight from the end of days. They have had some successful campaigns in the past for both Fantasy and Sci-Fi so this was the logical next step
  • Infinity RPG – Modiphius get you settled into the deep and rich background of Infinity RPG which is also doing extremely well on Kickstarter
  • Burrows & Badgers – Oathsworn continue their success with small but effective fundraisers. Burrows & Badgers: Freelances adds new heroes and villains to their Redwall-esque world
  • The Others: 7 Sins – Conquering Kickstarter once again CoolMiniOrNot have been blasting through additional models and expansions for this horror filled board game
