73 miniatures and nice mix of villainous goons in the initial offering. Be interested to see what all Weird War 2 stuff they'll introduce. Too bad it's competing with Black Friday for my gaming dollars. Really it's getting to the point where the year isn't long enough in general for all the new product getting crammed into it.

I've just dusted off my old CD of Return to Castle Wolfenstein.

Took a lot of messing to get it to work with a modern rig... apparently I must have entered some sort of timewarp, because 17 years have passed since it came out!


Anyway, it's getting me into the groove.

I really hope they do something sci fi in the future, preferably not post apocalyptic, horror or 40kish.

The trailer is a masterpiece of design and direction for a boardgame trailer, a high standard most big companies should look up to.

I see the maxim with all the odd attachments are going to stay....

Base game seems to have a fair amount of crazy too it. That's good. Can only imagine what the stretch goals bring.

Has there been any hint of the supernatural? The zombies all look like products of technology as opposed to magic, and I don't recall seeing the usual vamps and wolves hanging with the Germans.

I do hope we see a Nazi Moon Base expansion. That'd be fun!

Its Aliens, not supernatural from what I got.

It seems to be a small project with small KS window, if it is successful they may revisit it.

From what I remember from beasts of war it has two or three expansions planned only.

Just watched the BoW video and from what I can tell, there is going to be the following:

Core box - Includes the revealed stuff, with two main branches of Vril opposition; the mutation guys and the tech guys.

Vril expansion - The big expansion with the Vril aliens.

Project X expansion - Small expansion consisting of a Big Bad.

3D Scenery expansion.

The $200 all in is a $10 discount on getting everything separately.

I'm guessing it won't be heading to retail, so it's get nothing, get some stuff at the KS prices or get it all at $10 off so not a reason to get everything if you don't actually want it but a nice bonus if you do

according to their Facebook page.

No, we want this game in retail as well. But the Kickstarter version will have some exclusives.

What they want and what turns out to be reality might be two different things though!

I'm planning on getting it all - IF the gaming budget and holiday budget sync up!

It is probably the free stretch goals that will weight the all in, they did say they want to unlock many heroes.

I hypothesise some of them will be ties to each expansion.

To round up some replies to questions -

There's a high chance we'll get to sci-fi someday

The macguffin in the game is vril which makes it science(-ish) based rather than supernatural based.

If there's demand for more RB then moon base is high on our list for future expansions.

The discount is more than $10.

I'm always careful to say 'we want it to go to retail' rather than 'it will go to retail' as whether it does or not isn't entirely up to us. We have to have distributors willing to carry it and a price point that works in retail. If we unlock all the planned SGs then the MSRP for the all-in would be almost twice the price it is on the KS. That does include some KSE bits which wouldn't go to retail but it underlines the issue with converting a game like this to retail (and why Monolith decided to stop trying).

We avoid SGs which require an expansion to play as we don't want to force anyone to buy an expansion to make a SG useable. All of the SGs will be useable with the core game and the expansions though.

My apologies for spreading disinformation!

Late night video watching and paying too much attention to Leo's hair is what I'm blaming that on...

In fairness, I think Leo did say that in the Beasts of War interview. It's only a $200 all-in during the KS so the discount won't exactly be huge, but it is a discount over waiting for the pledge manager and substantial one over waiting for any retail release.

That is extremely good to hear, hopefully in a more "Mass effect" direction than a cyberpunk/ post apocalyptic or 40k clone direction.

For example I was really interested in the mecanisms and presentation of time of legends, but the theme left me uninterested, was really thinking, this would be a fantastic way to present a sci fi battle game, I really do hope you create similar projects like time of legends and reichbusters in a clean modern sci fi theme.

Thanks for the clarifications on what to expect.

Will try to keep my expectations (somewhat) in check.

The more I think about it (and the more I impatiently wait for my Joan of Arc pledge), using the Time of Legends engine in the Reichbusters setting would be an interesting avenue to explore in the future. You could really get some crazy units on the table that way.

Plus have an actual moon base map to fight on

My own personal desire is to see a ToL style game set in a more fantasy inspired Sengoku era Japan though. Demon Lord Nobunaga versus the other unifiers of Japan!

Nicely done video... I'd imagine that was expensive!

I know I recognize the guy on the left at 31 minutes with the beard from some other game videos. Wasn't he a part of the Beasts of War team previously?

Vid is great.

Is the lack of nazi symbols to avoid problems in Germany or something?

Probably. If they get rid of skulls then we'll know they're planning a chinese edition.

Yes, Az did have a stint as a Beast of War. We produced the video in-house. It's very flattering that people think we must have spent a lot of money on it
