Okay guys, I'm looking over the alpha rules for Vanguard and it's basically fantasy Deadzone but it seems to use the full Kings of War profile (probably so models can swap between both games) but all the rules I'm seeing so far are ones we've already used in Deadzone. I haven't looked too closely. I'm just skimming through now.
Ahah. It doesn't seem to use the squares and cubes for movement and ranges. That's a difference.
So its a game we can pretty much use straight away, or even link it a campaign system without to much hassle, seems good to me, not sure ill do the kickstarter through, but will probably pick it up upon release
The rules have differences to Deadzone. You always roll the exact same amount of defence dice as hits that got through so there's none of that "too many attack dice to defend against" problem that Deadzone has. Things like Crushing Strength don't change the number of dice you roll. They affect the target number. There are group activations. It has a fatigue system!
Also there's an Easy Army warband builder already .
Tempted just for the abyssals... anyone fancy sharing?
Well I like one or two of the Basilean models but I don't fancy the others very much. I suppose sharing an $85 pledge would probably involve adding a $30 pledge as well so the two sharers would each have books & tokens and stuff.
I'm in for a $30 book pledge. Can't really afford much else right now. Some of the extras look nice but not $85 nice. Plus I need to start paying for Necromunda but if you want to split an $85 with either me or Tony I'm fine with that.
Northern alliance looks gOod. Tony? Anyone else? Giant pledge looks a bit crazy.
Too many elves. Looks a lot like the Legion of Everbroke (seriously they need to ff-ing balance fix those guys some day) from Hordes to me.
The Giant pledge looks like disturbingly good value for money but does anyone actually ever need that many miniatures for a skirmish game? The answer is probably yes but not all at the same time . Variety is good, 'though. So are options.
