On Friday we launched the Deadzone: Infestation Kickstarter, and it funded successfully in just 13 minutes. Wow!
It’s been 48 hours since the start, so we thought it was worthwhile just to have a closer look at exactly what we’re doing with this new project.
Having created so much through the original Kickstarter, this new project focuses on adding the new Veer-myn Faction to the game, as well as additions to the existing races like the Enforcer Pathfinders, and hopefully many more.
These new miniatures are made out of hard plastic and are on sprues, like the Plague Zombies and Forge Guard. There is no resin plastic (the material all of the factions starters are in) in this Kickstarter.
An insidious disease ridden race, the Veer-Myn fester in the darkest corners of man’s world. Their broods writhe and chatter in a rodent like manner, equally matched by their physical appearance. The uncertainty of whether the Veer-Myn act with a motive, or just the need to infest and expand, only adds to the nightmare created from what lurks within the shadows.
Veer-myn: The new hard plastic sprue contains enough pieces to build a sergeant, Malignus specialist with heavy weapon, Night-Crawlers with rifles, Stalkers with knives and pistols as well as plenty of extra heads and equipment to make every figure unique.
New Battlezones Scenery
The original Deadzone Kickstarter spawned the great Battlezones range of modular sci-fi terrain tiles.
With Infestation, we are expanding that range and you can now further add to your collection with the Industrial theme.
There are lots of brand new accessories and connectors such as fuel tanks, and we are currently funding the pipe network, which you can see in action below:
We are currently funding the pipe network at the moment, which can be built free-standing or integrated into your buildings.
The new Deadzone Hardback Core Rulebook is the ultimate guide to playing Deadzone. It features an in-depth background section, Core and Advanced Rules, a new campaign section and army lists.
It will include a new Force Organisation chart which we’ll cover later this week, and all the essential core rules, abilities and equipment from the previous Deadzone expansions.
Our aim with it is simple: to create a compelling campaign system, balance the factions and missions, make it easier to learn and navigate, and clarify and tidy up any rules where it requires it. We hope that you’ll give us your feedback to help us do this.
We’ve put all of this into a glorious hardback form, making it a genuine collector’s piece and a hardcore hobby product that fans can be proud of owning. Backers of the original Deadzone Kickstarter will get a digital copy of the updated rules for free, and the new book will be fully compatible with the existing miniatures.
If this has caught your eye and you would like to get involved, there are a couple of different ways of doing so.
There’s a $1 pledge if you just want the new miniatures or any of the add-ons. The scenery will be available individually in this week’s Add-on Wednesday.
There’s a $35 Outbreak pledge which is a great entry point if you just want the new Hardback Rulebook, and comes with some cool extras too.
And finally, there’s the $115 Quarantine pledge. Packed full of great value, this is both an excellent bundle for getting the new rules, scenery and miniatures as well as a great starting point for people who have not played Deadzone before.
It also includes two miniatures in Kickstarter Exclusive Resin: “The Piper” Veer-myn special character, and Blaine – on Jetbike!
Later this week, we will be introducing a scenery-only pledge level on Wednesday, and a dedicated pledge level for our retailers. There will also be the first Add-on Wednesday which will offer up some great new treats!
This is a relatively short campaign with just 15 days remaining. If you would like to get involved and join us on another Kickstarter journey you can do so here on the Deadzone: Infestation Kickstarter. Thanks for your time and support!
