PS - The Kickstarter is coming to an end soon and with less than 100 guaranteed pre-Christmas shipping Strikers! left and an incredibly limited amount of Jacks ($100) and Keepers ($80) we will not be able to increase the Striker! level again – if your friends are on the edge or if you know anyone who will want it under the Christmas tree, now is the time to act!

Really not sure about Mechs to be honest.

I'd be more in favour of rounding out the teams and adding alt poses to any existing teams lack them.

Yeah, I am not sure the game needs 'big guys'. I would like to get my models and play before considering big guys.

I would support more alternative poses and overall variety over more models... Save something for a next year kickstarter.

well given their next kickstarter is rumored to be the warpath, if this mech is a civilian version of a military mech, they are saving up mould costs with it for the next kickstarter.

The mechs were hinted at early on, and were one of the reasons I've dropped so much cash for this game. The mechs aren't for the first or second seasons though, they're for Ultimate, and there's still one more game left to reveal(Extreeeeeeme, wasn't it?). ONWARD, friends, onward into the shiny future where the blood wipes right off the field!

Bingo. There are already rules for mechs in the Warpath Corporation army list.. quick swapout of the dreadball glove arm with a gun and there you have it.

well the corporation, marauders and the forge fathers are done and all three goals seemed to damage the surge they were having. they promised to do the Veer-myn so we will see them before it ends remember there are still four days left and they are going to keep blowing through these things so i suspect we'll see it towards the end when everyone clamours to get on board before it finishes.

think it's one of those nice thing to have type goals, but one that doesn't attract new backers, only improves the offering for the current backers without adding any extra cash to the total.

I've been looking at the Warpath site and have come to the conclusion that the Dreadball models are of a superior sculpt. Are my old eyes deceiving me or have Mantic improved their sculpting/casting since those WP models were done?

I saw a WiP of the Ogres in the Kings of War thread and they looked much better than Mantic's earlier stuff.

OT: I want to fund DreadBall...not make Warpath cheaper.

I would say that what we're seeing is the virtues of having a single talented sculptor tackle an entire range. Remy Tremblay is, to the best of my knowledge, responsible for a great deal of the previewed sculpts (also the Ogres that have been previewed), and his style admirably suites the Warpath/Dreadball aesthetic/Universe.

This is not to say that the previous sculpts were bad (or, indeed, that they were not done by Tremblay), just that, like the Dark Eldar relaunch, having a single unified aesthetic created by having a single hand behind everything can reap dividends.

If the rest of the range is as good as, say, the Marauders then we're going to have a great set of models.


I think we're going to have to compromise - Ultimate DeadBall is in fact going to be about a bus full of Cheerleaders that takes a wrong turning into an abandoned chemical works and are hunted down by a psychotic mech-pilot raging about hurtful comments regarding the size of her mouth.

So it would seem that the guys from Penny Arcade struck again...Should I be irritated that they've forced themselves into two games now? Granted, they're paying for it, but...

I am fine with it as it usually means there will be a massive influx of Penny Arcade fanboys/girl dumping a not inconsiderable amount of money and boosting the overall value of the kickstarter.

We can hope, we can hope. I'm a fan of Penny Arcade, but...they're clowns most of the time, so it feels weird as hell when they're being portrayed as heroes.

Agree. Also, these seem to be a little 'hero-scale' opposed to relaistic. Giant head-sized fists. But the suits look like they got beefy people inside them where the warpath ones seem to look like skinny robots.

So it is either they are getting better or the 'hero-scale' just looks better with these designs. They are almost like between realistic and GW hero-scale. splitting the difference, and it looks good.

Yeah, I was worried when I first saw it that that would be the case. Limited release I don't have to get unless I want it? Fine and dandy, sirs, fine and dandy.

I'm so proud of myself for resisting the urge to jump on this. Been Kickstarter crazy the last couple of months, and I spent a stupid amount on Sedition Wars already. Not to mention that fact that I have enough 28mm Mongols and samurai to keep me busy painting for the next decade or so... Having said that, love the models - the Delvers in particular - and as a huge Bloodbowl fan back in the day, I really hope the ruleset delivers. I could see myself supporting this post-kickstarter once people have had a chance to play a few games and report back.
