Re: Kickstarter campaign launched
It's not clear from the pledge column but to be eligible for all unlocked stretch goals (none announced yet), you need to pledge at minimum Blitzkrieg or Battle Cry level.

It is mentioned under the Pledge Level section.

It looks like this one will be funded within a few hours of launching! Fantastic! I can't wait to see what other minis become available.

Yup, probably funded by the next hour.

Kevin Siembieda did an interview here:

Basically the MAC II is confirmed as a stretch goal:

It looks like the scale was intentionally chosen to match the old battletech minis.

Quote:
...the Ninja Division guys know that market inside and out, because they are the guys from Sodapop Miniatures and Cipher Studios. And yeah, they felt that was the best scale, because it coincides with a number of other games and that way you can always mix and match, for those who want to do that. You can mix and match different models and miniatures from other games, especially depending on how far you want to take this stuff.

That's great news. The MAC II was my favorite UED land mech in the series.

Darn, was hoping it would be First Contact level... the junk you get at Blitzkrieg isn't worth 60 bucks IMO.

Well the add-on price for the extra veritechs and battle pods come up to $50 already. The game is supposed to scale from small skirmishes to mass battles so those extra units will allow more options.

Funded!

I'm hoping that at least one stretch goal adds at least two more Tomohawks/Defenders.

I would definitely expect so!

Spartan & Phalanx


Hopefully these will be added free at some point.

Listening to the soundtrack alone in the presentation might push you over the edge. Don't push the play button!!! LOL

Re: Kickstarter campaign launched
They've made no mention of a map or map board for this. As it stands right now, the description supports standard tabletop minis play, or use in the Palladium Robotech RPG books. (though, admittedly, there is no mention of a ruler/tape measure in the box either, just dice and minis.)

I am so glad it's not a hex base game. The models are great looking and I'm excited to see what they come out with over the next 30 days.

Re: Kickstarter campaign launched
I was so excited when I heard Robotech was going kickstarter, yet the thought of painting all those minis turns me off. With so many companies going prepainted, I got spoiled. Oh we'll guess I'm passing on an old favorite of mine.

The same update also shows the Battlepods in their new dynamic poses. Here is the image for those who are not seeing the updated graphic (they used the same filename):

Re: Kickstarter campaign launched
Here are 3 squadron unit cards posted on various websites. The four primary stats are (from left to right):
Speed (SPD) movement.
Gunnery (GN) accuracy.
Defense (DF) damage resistance.
Piloting (PIL) performance.

EDIT: Palladium have clarified that the 80pt squad cost shown on each card is just a placeholder.
