DeepWars Keeps Unlocking More Strech Goals

AntiMatter Games has unlocked more goodies in their DeepWars "Mini"Kickstarter campaign and posted what's next to be unlocked.

From the campaign:

The DeepWars Mini-Kicker is moving along and is only a few hundred from unlocking the Nautiloid Chrysalid so people can add it to their pledges. Hopefully we can get past that point and unlock the other minis, including the massive Dark Mariner Heavy Biomech Construct. One thing to remember is that rewards in this Kickstarter with available products can be shipped in December, for the holiday season. Stretch rewards will ship in 2013, but the bulk of rewards can be received soon after this Kickstarter ends.

Also, we have introduced some options for backers to more free miniatures in their pledges.

Mid Roller Offer:

Every Backer at $135 or more gets an additional 2 medium sized (30mm base) miniatures of their choice. See the Rewards Options section on how to choose additional miniatures. Does not stack with High Roller Offers.

High Roller Offers:

Every Backer at $195 or more gets an additional 4 medium sized (30mm base) miniatures of their choice. See the Rewards Options section on how to choose additional miniatures. Does not stack with $285 offer.

Every Backer at $285 or more gets an additional 8 medium sized (30mm base) miniatures of their choice. See the Rewards Options section on how to choose additional miniatures.

AE:WWII posts up another stretch goal and concept art

Blackball Games is showing off another stretch goal and concept art for their AE:WWII-European Theater Kickstarter.

From the update:

Another goal of ours, in addition to getting a new book out, is to get some of the models that were never sculpted out into the world. So what we're doing is adding these new sculpts as stretch goals!

If we hit $17,500 all backers at the Lieutenant level and higher will receive a Hoodoo Conjurer in addition to their other rewards! These magicians of the American Office of Occult Research and Development (OORD) cast devious tricks on enemy troops, including the 'Deadly Trick' that kills with a puff of graveyard dust.

We'll be announcing more models as stretch goals in the coming days as well as offering backers the ability to 'add on' these new models to their pledges. So keep an eye out and continue to promote Operation: Kickstart!

Acheson Creations releases Kaiju Kaos Yamabiru, the Giant Subterranean

Acheson Creations gives you the latest in their Kaiju Kaos line with Yamabiru, the Giant Subterranean.

From the release:

Acheson Creations releases a new Kaiju Kaos piece, Yamabiru the Giant Subterranean, priced at $18US.

While only about half the size of a Colossal Subterranean, these giants are no less dangerous. While larger versions enjoy hunting dragons and dinosaurs, Giant Subterraneans prefer attacking humans and small mammals. Because of this, Giant Subterraneans tend to pop up in and around towns or villages but usually steer clear of noisy cities. Yamabiru, the most infamous Giant Subterranean, is known for ingesting entire herds of cattle within minutes and will likely consume anyone or any living thing that tries to stop it.

Designed by Cline Siegenthaler, this 28mm playing piece sits on a 10cm (4 inch) base and is 9.7cm (3 3/4 inches) tall.
