Mantic Games have launched a Kickstarter campaign for Deadzone: Infestation.
Described as “Deadzone 1.5”, this Kickstarter will launch a new, smaller starter box for this skirmish game, which will include a new faction – the Veer-Myn.
Other addition include a hardback rulebook, and new playmat and a new ‘industrial’ battlezone.
It’s perhaps something of a mixed bag for those of us who backed the original Deadzone Kickstarter, with some nice looking models, some average and some “interesting” models (The D.O.G. Drone – REALLY??)
It’s a shorter campaign than normal for Mantic, although it’s already amassed almost 1300 backers and is over 250% of it’s funding target – having hit it’s $50,000 goal in 13 minutes.
Deadzone is a good game, and if you missed it first time around, it’s an opportunity to get a discount starter set (though it’s worth noting that delivery is not until January 2016). Worth keeping an eye on – even if only for a nice rulebook and some new terrain.
