I don't get it.

MONOLITH, PLEASE INCLUDE COUNTER BASES AS A STRETCH GOAL.

A ton of grey plastic, it's going to be chaos...

I can see it as an add-on, and even then remotely, because:

-Leo said once you pick your unit you know its yours. I concur with the only possibility of confusion being some heroes or troops at most (the minis are very similar to the sculpts, and exceptions are still recognizable).

-There area ton. Like, a ton to make. To give you an idea: Not all gods+titans have the same base. Not all the monsters have the same base. Not all the heroes have the same base. Not all the troops have the same base, let alone quantity.

-The way recruiting works, you may have a lot of different combinations such that it would be very hard to include less bases to save money. At least half of them should be included for it to work.

-If implemented, Stretch goals, KSE's and all expansions should be included. That means a lot (over 100 bases).

That is why im 99% sure they won't come as free, and 80% sure they won't come in this KS. Extra Art of War, Aphrodite, etc are more important.

Your only going to be playing with 4 - 6 units at a time. You can't keep track of your 4 to 6 units?

They have said many times in the over 1500 demo games they never had an issue with people not knowing their own units.

We will not propose color bases as there are really no need for them for the reasons explained by Daniel and Roberto. Believe me, there are no risks to confuse miniatures. Never happened in any demo.

technically speaking that would be 2 - 13 units, Typhon +4RP Monster/Hero in a 4 player game and God + 12 Troops in a 2 player game.
the later case could put around 45+1 minis on the table


and because someone has to say it:
"all your base are belong to us"

You can also buy colored pipe cleaners. Old school, but still valid.
