And it's underway. Privateer Press has launched their Kickstarter campaign for Warcaster: Neo-Mechanika, their new sci-fi miniatures game. Though set in the Iron Kingdoms, though far in the future, the gameplay is drastically different from the Warmahordes rules set you probably know. This is also the first of many planned Kickstarter campaigns for the game, with them coming out every couple months as they release new products for the line. But that's as may be. At the moment, they are just getting the game off the ground.
From the campaign:
Warcaster: Neo-Mechanika is a high-speed hobby miniatures game in which players collect and customize a battle force of 35 mm-scale warriors and warjacks and play out epic, scenario-driven battles across a tabletop.
A Warcaster is the pinnacle of power, a being capable of harnessing and manipulating the cosmic forces that can fuel mechanika and conjure ancient reality-warping Cyphers. The mind of a Warcaster has been forged into the ultimate weapon: by channeling Arcanessence, they are able to coordinate an entire battle force while simultaneously augmenting that force’s combat prowess by remotely channeling arcane energies into their weapons, armor, and even their formidable war machines. In a galaxy beleaguered by constant conflict, the Warcasters are the champions of their nations, worlds, and empires, waging war with each other like gods moving pieces across a chessboard.
In Warcaster: Neo-Mechanika, YOU are the Warcaster. You are not a pawn on the tabletop; you are the god making the moves. Charged with valuable Arcanessence, you will customize your powers and the load outs of your warjacks, choose the composition of your battle force, and lay waste to all that stands before you.
The campaign's already more than 2x funded with 15 days left to go.
