Mars Attcks Kickstarter


Yes, it's true, I've finally succumbed to the phenomenon that is Kickstarter, the world's largest funding platform for creative projects.  I'd long been aware of many wonderful ideas that have been brought to fruition by crowd funding and still regret not backing the 'Empire of the Dead' when I had the chance so as Kickstarters go, 'Mars Attacks' was always going to cause me problems!  Fantasy, Science Fiction fun based, initially, on the Topps trading card series and later comic books, 'Mars Attacks - The Miniatures Game' really caught my imagination and when I heard that it was going to be produced at my favoured 28mm scale, I was in! 


Starting on the 4th October 2013, the project made its target in a day and is currently reaching new goals even as I write this.  Unquestionably another diversion, but it does look great fun and fun is exactly what I want my gaming to be all about.  



So clearly I want you all to go along and pledge some of your own money, join in the fun and help me to reap even more benefits - go on you know you want to; just click the pretty picture on the right side bar!

  4. HAHA Welcome aboard the Kickstarter Train, once you start you can't stop. I did manage to pass on this one though, as I have several others which should be arriving shortly. Empire of the Dead being one of them. I am amazed your finding all these old images for your blog & now the TOPPS cards to boot!

    Hope you have fun with it!
