Mantic Games’ Warpath Kickstarter launched today and it has already bust through its original funding goal. They are immediately looking on towards stretch goals but lets check out the campaign as a whole first. See what you think…
The game is going to focus on three main factions at the moment. These are the Enforcers, Forge Fathers and the Veer-Myn which have each got some of the best model kits in the Warpath universe as it stands. The last Deadzone Kickstarter of course helped bring some hard plastic sprue kits to all three factions too…
Each of these armies has its own way of playing and can be scaled between their Firefight game, a smaller squad based affair, and the main game of Warpath. I really like the look of the Forge Fathers and Dwarves are certainly my faction of choice but it’s hard to ignore the Cerebus-esque armour (Mass Effect) of the Corporation Enforcers.
There are two big pledges that you should be focusing on with this Kickstarter. The first of them offers you the rulebooks that you’ll need to get playing with your various Sci-Fi armies…
As you can see this gives you three different books, digital versions of them, dice and the counters that you need to play the game. A lot of people have existing Warpath armies so this might be a good way for you to get those older armies out of retirement.
The second of these pledge levels add some miniatures into the mix. Also, rather than having you stuck with one set of models when it comes to armies they are allowing you to choose what you want.
This means you can focus on getting a pair of armies to play with a friend or simply bolster your own collection by getting a battlegroup. I could see merits in getting either of these options but I’m glad that they stay around the same price.
Here are the two first stretch goals that have already been unlocked by generous and very quick backers…
Of course being a Mantic Kickstarter this is most likely going to rocket up when it comes to the money raised for the project…
Have you pledged?
