Everywhere you look there is always something new and shiny to catch your eye and distract one from going about their normal projects and it would appear that I am as susceptible as the next man. Whilst the rest of the world is jumping on board the new 'Empire of the Dead' Kickstarter it would appear that yours truly, in his inevitable style is backing the 'also ran'!
Osprey Publishing's new steam punk rules, 'In Her Majesty's Name' are due for release on the 18th April along with the accompanying miniatures that just seemed to resonate to me and carry many of the attributes that I was playing around with in the characters destined for the 'Secret Project'; to that end I've gone and pledged far too much of my pocket money on them!
So why do I mention it here? Well although not a Kickstarter in its own right, the idea is a very simple one - pay up front and if certain goals are reached then new and exclusive miniatures will be sent to you - for free! It would appear that the minimum pledge of £37 would entitle you to all the forthcoming spend goals, so the more of you that join in, then the more lead I'll have to sneak past the Saintly Mrs. Awdry on my return from Salute!
