There have always been 8 figures per team listed in the picture, and in the description, at all points in time. The alternate sculpt $60k stretch goal raises that to 10 per team.


Thank you,.

My mistake then about the number of models. I remembered someone mentioning 12 before the Kickstarter started. I think it probably had to do with 12 on the pitch in the promo pictures.



and specifically, 6 players per team can *legally* be on the field. (the other two are subs and by the looks of them, not anywhere near enough )
I think that's where the confusion stems from.

John Doe is a beautiful concept.

In other unrelated news I no longer have to look for a "Lewdgrip Whiparm" mini any more.

I don't want the game

but I do want the John Doe Mini, just for the cool concept

I've added some RRP tracking to the OP since that was a popular request for the KoW kickstarter. Rounding down on the bonus minis, not including stuff I can't value (ticket, trophy) and not including the basic game upgrades, so it's quite a conservative estimate.

Striker is currently at $202, Jack is currently at $122.

That will rise to $224 and $132 once the $125k stretch is reached.

So, if anyone is interested in this game but thinking "I'll wait until I can get it for 25% discount", it's worth keeping in mind that we're already at the point where this offers 20-25% off and free shipping... with another 30 days left to run.

The KoW one ended up at 65-70% discount across all pledge levels, quite likely that this will follow suit, with Striker rising to around $400-500 in total value over time. Mantic tends towards "pile on the free stuff" when it comes to kickstarters.

I'm from the future. The future of space

I like how Mantic gets that when you do plastic (either styrene injection or the vinyl based restic) that the cost is upfront rather than per unit. So they're okay with giving loads of extras to those who help with the upfront costs.

What I'm really waiting for is the Warpath Kickstarter. I'm going to fund the **** out of that one.

Balance in pick up games? Two people, each with their own goals for the game, design half a board game on their own without knowing the layout of the board and hope it all works out. Good luck with that. The faster you can find like minded individuals who want the same things from the game as you, the better.

Wildcard would look better with a different hairstyle - either shorter like Quorra's or tied back like a lot of female athletes. On the other hand, she's a far better take on a Striker than the 29ers, especially for the Warpath setting.

I just asked Mantic if backers could buy additional MVPs


(as I may well want Wildcard and John Doe, but not the game) and this is there answer

Thanks for getting in touch. Backers will be able to buy all the extra MVPS separately - they will be up for purchase on the main page shortly.

That was the tipping point.

Mantic Wins, I'm in at Striker.

Now to recruit all my friends, so we supporters can get more loot

I. Want. John. Doe. A freaking Cthulu speedball player?! Hell yes!! Mantic, take my money! I think this mini will draw more people like me in, and the next stretch goal will probably even be better (if that's possible).

I even have a paint-scheme already picked out for him.

My hope is that all 4 of the plastic teams get bumped up to 12 players., for the striker level at least, by the end of the kickstarter.

That's a realistic goal, and I think it is something we'll actually see!

I think it would be really awesome if the tentacled MVP player represented a new race in the Warpath universe. It would be a very nice version of "Bugs" from other genres, without the cliche "giant earth bugs" form. Make them more like the Prawn from District 9.

Has Mantic stated if the MVP minis are plastic or metal?

I've been holding off on this one 'til I can find out for sure if it's all plastics, or a mix of plastics and metals (in which case, I'm out)

Just hought I'd throw this up, this is what you will currently get at striker level and its only going to bigger over the next 30 days. (you might want add this to OP post Squig)



The striker level is starting to look like a pretty sweet deal.

I don't really care for the overall asthetic of the models.

I get what they are trying to do and why, but I think it would have been cooler to do a more original look/premise that wasnt a total copy of what they are copying.

"Robobowl" with all robot teams or something, anything but "orks and skaven, etc. playing football". Been there, done that...

Yeah, this is where I'm at, too, CT Gamer :-/

I wouldn't rule out getting a single team if someone around here gets the game, but so far none of the model aesthetics appeal to me...

...except it's not even close to "playing football" but a completely different game mechanic instead. try reading up on it in the links provided in the OP; it's a markedly different game.

Sigh, I'm seriously looking forward to December now...and not because of Christmas. Mantic is sending me a great Christmas, that I'm paying for at the end of September.

Massive update.

For starters, http://www.dreadball.com/ is now live.

In addition, 2 separate 3d board options have just been added as extras:

- $80 gets you a laser-etched board made from coloured acrylic.
- $25 gets you the same thing, made from MDF, to paint up however you want.




Quite a nice bit of gamer swag there, I like how there's both a premium and a budget option up for sale.

They've also bulked out the Extras section by adding all the unlocked MVPS, a new paint set, pack of trophies and acrylic counter up for sale.
