With the v2 rulebook and faqs online and replacement minis available is this game better now than its accumulated historical rating suggests?

And are the base minis really that bad? Will they take a bit of paint from a terrible amateur painter?

I thought the v1 rulebook was workable, so my opinion might not be "valid". I think it is a fun game, a bit more abstract and less tactical than I usually like, but still comic-book fun.

They lack a lot of detail but serve great as markers. I think this one comes down to what your expectations are. If you still like four-color artwork, then they probably will be fine. If you demand high quality, photo-realistic artwork you might be disappointed.

It is all about expectations with this game. If you take it for what it is it is a fun game.

I'd go along with that.

The base minis are exactly fine for a boardgame. The problem was that the game was promoted for collectors of miniatures - who wanted miniature game quality figures. It's not a miniature game, it's a boardgame.

I just backed it. Broke my own damn rule.
I only discovered this game after the original KS ended and missed all the fiasco stuff, but this game is soooo fucking fun. I don't want to miss out on it.

And for the price! cant be beat.

Im going in knowing i can lose my pledge flat out and not get nothing. I am willing to bet they learned a lot last time.

Definitely a fun game and with the new episode (on KS now) there are 2 ways to play the game. If you like games like Descent or Imperial Assault, you should like this. The new episode seems to be a little like Arcadia Quest with PvPvE. Looking forward to it.

Also, if you don't like the minis (the first version were pretty weak compared to the minis we see nowadays in Blood Rage and others), go and get some Heroclix from someone (the commons should be readily available and are painted).

Definitely back the new Episode as the KS extras will be great to have.
