Midnight saw the launch of the much-anticipated AvP Kickstarter project from Prodos. They have been teasing images of models for a few weeks: now it’s time to see what all the fuss is about:
To be honest, I am somewhat underwhelmed. Yes the models are nice, but we are looking at a base game price of £75 – that includes the grand total of 15 Aliens, 5 Marines and 3 Predators. OK, you get all the floor tiles and cards, but I’d like to see a close-up of the floor tile artwork – certainly it does not look great in the above shot – and the doors look…well, a bit naff.
OK, the models in the game, if bought as add-ons, are worth £90 on their own. However, I can’t help feeling that this game is somewhat on the expensive side – no doubt due to the licence fee that Prodos has had to pay Fox.
One hour into the campaign, and the project has just about reached it’s £35K funding goal, but with no Early Bird rewards, and what looks like few free stretch goals, I’m already considering giving this a miss and sticking with my current collection of ‘proxy’ models – although it is always tempting simply to get a new set of rules…
