Was on the fence about this, but just backed after watching the Let's Play here: https://youtu.be/s1Y0wguCuaU

I was looking for a wargame to replace my semi-regular 40k session with an old friend and I think this will be awesome. Small mini count, interesting scenarios and the resource and ability system looks really cool. Rule set looks really elegant too.

It looks like the devs could have done a better job communicating their business model initially, but I'm all over the idea. Putting every model for a faction in a single box for a miniature game reminds me of the TCG shift from booster packs to LCGs, which I much prefer.

The devs have listened to feedback and basically brought the I'll-have-every-faction cost down by around 40% too! The quality of the minis looks great too - not up to KIngdom Death standards, but still very very good for the price.

I really hope this takes off as it deserves too - there's been quite a few questions about cost early on and I hope potential new backers aren't overly frightened off the project without realising the huge steps the developer has made to address these,

That video did it for me as well, looks fun and tactical but simple enough to teach people. Thats what I need out of this type of game.

Agreed - that video sold me on it - but I am hoping to see more details about customization - I'm just a teeny bit concerned about the long term replayability (although they've said scenarios and terrain feature heavily in making sure that is not a problem)...Hoping to see more videos of the other factions!

The video did a great job of communicating the fun in the game. Took this game from a "watch and see" to instaback.
