I was born at a very young age. I plan on living forever. So far, so good.

    Well, I threw my money into the pot. Looks interesting!

  • Hmm.. is English their second language because the whole thing (especially the video text) seems a little… off.

    Also, planes are 24mm but look like 10mm. The designs range from the interesting to the absurd.

    River Horse’s Game Designer/Editor Andy Chambers (extensive works on Warhammer 40.000, Starship Troopers, Dust Tactics, Necromunda, etc.) will do a Final Edit on the Dark Skies rule set.

    That’s all well and good, but who designed the thing in the first place?

    • They’re ESL. Their Facebook page has their company name in Spanish. So even though they’re listed from Leeds, England, they’re not native English speakers.

        The English is better than a several KS projects done by native speakers that I can think of. Looks like Crimson Skies, which was based on one of the best tabletop games ever, FASA’s Renegade Legion: Interceptor, which can still occasionally be found in mint condition on eBay for around $20 or less and the minis are still being produced by C-in-C miniatures. If you don’t own it then you are losing at the game of life (and I don’t mean the Hasbro product).
