Soooo....ya. I really like the looks of All Quiet on the Martian Front and couldn't be happy just buying enough to build one side. So, I upped my pledge and took advantage of the Early Bird Full Assault level - $245. May seem like a lot but look what all I get PLUS the various Stretch Goals that get unlocked.
Well if you have been anywhere online in gaming circles you likely know that the All Quiet on the Martian Front Kickstarter went live today. I couldn't pass this one up and while I'll likely have some 'splanin to do, I put in at the Tank Major level -
Even if you are not so much in it for a new set of rules, the miniatures alone should pull you in. an amazing array of machines and new 15mm troop figures are being offered in this project and I know i'll be putting mine to double duty in other weird war games and possibly even fighting 15mm Quar for sort of oddball retro-scifi games.
I am looking forward to this. I like what the designers have done expanding on the themes and updating the timeline. The models looks really cool and it looks like the line will be pretty extensive and a sure favorite for folks who like strange machines with an early 20th century feel or tripods.
The Kickstarter goes live May 7th and I know I'll be there!
Thanks to all those who wished me well. The injury to my wrist seems to have been much more minor than initially thought. While painful, it has been healing up quickly and I no longer need the bracing.
You see that little bald patch on the outside of my wrist where it's a bit pink? That's about twice its normal size but it had been much bigger and angrier before. I can use the wrist but am taking it easy until the tenderness is all gone.
Thank again and here's to getting back to pushing putty and building terrain soon!
Well in a crappy turn of events, I have managed to injure my good wrist. By good, I mean the wrist that does all the important stuff - painting, modelling, sculpting, working a fork, etc.. It's not a bad injury, but it does mean immobilizing the wrist for a bit so it will have a chance to heal. It also means that I cannot sculpt, build terrain or paint at all.
