Thats cool to hear, I've been holding off buying any of mantics veer-myn stuff because of the upcoming Kickstarter, when its does drop mantic will have all of my money's ALL.OF.THEM.

Either way the new Z'zor are pretty cool, did'nt like them when they only showed the heads, but now I've seen the full bodies I like the direction Mantic have gone with them. They very much remind me of the Iuminoth from Metriod Prime or the "ghost" from final fantasy: the spirits within.I'm very curious how differenet the "true" warpath army version Z'zor are going to look from the dreadball versions and what type of unit's, especialy the vehicles will be like in terms of genral design.


P.s This is what a Luminoth looks like, how cool is that, with a little bit of conversion work I could make the Z'zor close to this.

Sounds good-I'd be up for it to start TOMORROW!! But I realize I'm lucky with a job that would permit that, so I guess I'm happy waiting for others wallets to recover to make the earnings that much sweeter next time. I want lots of enforcers on the kickstarter!! Pass it on to Ronnie-LOTS of enforcers.

Reality is a nice place to visit, but I'd hate to live there.

I need time to paint this lot (and Sedition Wars) first. Next summer would suit me well...

The value on this is getting really good now.

$200 of stuff in the $100 Jack level.
$330 of stuff in the $150 Striker level.

You're getting ~70 models for $150. Sedition Wars had ~50 models for $80 right from the start.

And the nice thing about this one is that you really can use all those figures, there's less "trade the stuff to get what you want/ have non-useful minis" factor than there was with either the KoW or Reaper freebies. Even if you just have 1-2 of a particular mini, the free agent rules still allow you to use it, and DreadBall Xtreme will feature mixed-race teams.

I do not agree here either. Just taking your argument at face value, KoW let you do the same thing with the allies rules, but unlike Dreadball doesn't limit you to using a handful of your models. Fourteen 29ers and fourteen Greenskins aren't worth much as free agents when you can only field 6-8 models at a time.

But beyond that, you've still got the problem that two specific teams are compulsory if you want a playable game. Giving the male Corp the Space Marine treatment is annoying because I know where that ends up: with donkey-caves crowing about how women are so much less popular than men, so it's only right that they get a raw deal.

I'm not paying $15 shipping on a $20 team and a $10 ebook, if that's what you're asking. If it comes down to that, I'll wait until it's available from Maelstrom.

talking about a warpath kickstarter now is pretty irrelevant IMO im sure'll it'll come when it comes. Besides, z'zor mvp concept art is up on mantics facebook page:




they;re asking for feedback on what people think before finalising the design.

Vey nice! It seems like they have taken some of the ideas people have been throwing their way and putting them on the mpv. I must say I like the larger head and the curve in the back.

Seems to be he general consensus in the KS comments. Nice to see they took all the suggestions on and changed them up a bit!

A strange lull and a negative trend the last 3 days.

They need to add some spice/interesting stretches!

^ And actually closed at $8500.

Day 1 aside, there has literally only been 2 "good" days approaching $15k, and 2 "bad" days where it fell to around $5k.

Every single other day of this entire kickstarter has been a flat and steady $8k-9k per day, despite the constantly intermittant commentary about "it's slowing down", that really has never been the case.

It is one of the most dead-on linear kickstarters I have ever seen as far as funding goes.

Naturally, it'll go nuts and get another $300-400k in the last week, as pretty much every KS campaign like this does, getting at least 50%+ of the funding right at the end.

I guessed $500k close for this at the start, currently thinking more like $600k-$800k at the moment. So, Season 2 and Ultimate definitely funded, not sure about Xtreme, though.

They have stretch goals planned up to $800k (one season released for every $200k of funding), so it would be wonderful to see that happen, with all of season 2, and the Ultimate and Xtreme expansion sets fully funded.

Remy has some pics of the marauder sculpts up on his blog, if anyone's interested:

Do you think that DB Extreme (DBEX?) might be a good place for some slight resculpts?

If the teams are operating outside the arena they might have different bits of armour..could be a possibility for re-doing figures in a couple of years. I'm sure by then we will have bought the 'current' releases.

Just something I think GW missed out on - teams changing their uniforms now and again as part of ongoing support for the game.

^ I'd imagine they'd do some alternate sculpts for that expansion, with less regulation armour and more unarmoured, rougher-looking players. There will definitely be a new urban pitch with various terrain pieces on it, we know that much.

New update has been posted, the amount needed to reach the next stretch goal has been reduced by $2.5k, and another small $5k stretch goal has been added for the Zz'or MVP.

So, less than $10k to go to unlock the next 2 goals and then on to that Green Goblin character.

Yeah - when I posted that at 11:30 at night, East Coast time, it was looking like it was going to be the lowest point of a four day downward trend.

Hence, a negative trend.

Go west coast go!

The kickstarter just hit the 275,000 mark, the Z'zor MVP is in!!!, now that was fast.

Either way we should be seeing this guy next:



Ya'know everyoe's been saying this guy looks like the green goblin due to his helmet, but now that I've looked at him a bit closer is it possible this guy is an Astraina (Spelling?).
Those things on the side of his head could be elf ears not a part of the helmet, they may seem a bit big but just look at the WoW elves.

Would be pretty cool if true.

$282,500 - Nightshade, Season 2 MVP

Rumored to be the child of former Asterian DreadBall star Iga Kizawa – or as some unsavory individuals in the sport claim, a clone of Iga himself – the Striker known only as Nightshade has quietly been making a name for himself over the last couple of cycles – very quietly in fact, as Nightshade is famed for never making a sound.

The most iconic thing about Nightshade is his sculpted body suit – custom DreadBall armour around which the air shifts and swirls as it moves. Technicians theorize that there is some kind of anti-matter projector that allows Nightshade to manipulate not just the ball but also his very appearance, making it incredibly difficult for him to be caught.

Sowing confusion and fear in opposing players is his primary tactic. Blackouts in stadiums have been momentarily reported only for the floodlights to burst back into life just at the moment that Nightshade has found himself in the Strike zone, hurling the ball into the Strike hex. Officials have tried to question Nightshade about these “events,” but he refuses to speak of them.

Asterian teams in the league have taken a lot of damaging criticism for Nightshade’s questionably immoral take on the sport and distance themselves from him at every mention. Leading Asterian coaches have said they would refuse his services, no matter how many points he has accumulated in his relatively short career.

If we hit this stretch goal we'll sculpt and produce Nightshade - a limited edition Kickstarter MVP (you'll only be able to pick him up on Kickstarter and one or two other places as well) - and we'll add him to Jack and Striker!

It's a dirty stinking Gary Stu.

What kind of lame-ass dystopia is this, if the Corporation lets some alien mock them by blatantly cheating at their own game? He wouldn't even get away with that nonsense today.

And anti-matter? The most powerful explosive physically possible?

And why ruin the Asterians by getting them openly involved in Dreadball? Aren't they supposed to be based on the greys and alien abductions, suggesting they shouldn't be showboating on live Corporation television?

You might be taking the whole Space Football thing too seriously?

For example, I don't think that GW wants us to believe that Blood Bowl is 'really' happening in the WFB world...

As far as I'm aware it's not a Grimdark ONLY WAR sort of thing in the Mantic universe

So while war may occur, so might more peacefull interaction

(especially is the Corp is not trying to eliminate all alien species, after all they can be customers too)
