Since you need a business address/bank account registered in the KS region you want to run your project from it could well be the chap has got a contact/relative/business partner in the UK that can provide that

(and doesn't have access to anybody in the USA... Mantic had enough hassle arranging things first time round, and they were a UK company operating at a time of relative political openness, not a Chinese national trying to do so at a time of a trade war)

Yeah even with Brexit messing things up the China to UK trade isn't in the middle of a trade war so its at least a bit more stable. Heck in the short term of the campaign it might actually favour them if/when/whatever happens with Brexit and the UK leaves and has to secure good deals with overseas countries outside the EU.

Wow does that look sexy. Those Mecha! Hot dang..
But I just have too many other projects, and it smells a little risky. I'll probably have to admire this one from afar and then purchase it at an enormous markup off eBay when it delivers... Like normal.

Its been hinted that all the expansion boxes are a second wave of shipping, so just getting the core box in hard plastic seems like less of a gamble.

The rules seem quite slick - I'm not normally a fan of loads of custom dice, but it seems to work well in place of lots of stats. Getting magnets in the box also seems like a good move, but they haven't said you'll get enough for everything...

With the expansions in resin and the core box in hard plastic, I can't help but feel they should have left the expansions to another KS... Even with two waves and the renders mostly complete, it still seems like a lot of options to deal with.

Since the game has already funded in China [something like 405k¥], I don't think tooling will be the issue, it's going to be logistics.

Overall, the fact that the creator seems very open, has taken the game to many conventions, and has games to give to people for review, I think it's worthy of a shot...

Just a heads up that this campaign is now into its last 25hours - so only one more day of funding before its all over! They are at £227,217 right now and easily within striking distance of a few more stretch goals in the last manic day of funding (as most KS tend to spike up a fast increase in pledges through the last day).

I've had to back out to a £1 on this one, there's just too many other KS and Bonereapers all in the same month for me that I can't raise enough funds for everything. Though hopefully I might get a chance once the KS mania eases off and going through their pledge manager.

Also don't forget they raised significant funds in their local KS system in China so the game already has quite al ot of funds which should help ensure a successful delivery.

It's so tempting, but i'd need to go for everything at once and I cant afford that just now. I love the mech designs and the idea of having munitions in flight piques my interest

Please excuse any spelling errors. I use a tablet frequently and software keyboards are a pain!

I suppose I should sit down and figure out a pledge for this....
