I wasn't even aware of this game on Kickstarter until a few days ago, and now it's past. I downloaded a free sample of the rules and reviewed the figures and must say I'm very impressed. I recently got away from miniature gaming (sold all of them except Napoleonics), but miss the 3D aspect and painting of quality miniatures. I thought about Malifaux for sometime but ruled it out due to the length of play time when 3 or 4 players are involved.

DeepWars takes place entirely beneath the ocean in a alternate earth history. The backstory is interesting but needs more to really give it some punch. However, the game plays fast using a modifided Song of Blades and Heroes ruleset...the rulebook for DeepWars is really beautiful for a small producer. The theme is unique, I loved 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea growing up and all things related and wondered why someone couldn't produce a rich and rewarding miniature game world in a similar setting...and now we have DeepWars.

Just check out the miniatures...they are very nice, you only need a handful to play and most were sculpted by some of the best Reaper sculpters.

I haven't jumped on board yet, but I admit I can't stop looking at the Antimatter Games page...I wish this had come out 10 years ago, but if you love the Undersea Theme and Tabletop Miniatures...you should take a look and give it a little love here on BGG.
