From the happy game makers:
The Kickstarter project for Deepwars is funded! Thanks to all the supporters who have pledged their hard-earned money - we will strive to produce the best possible product for you all. The project still has plenty of time though, so we will be adding more artwork and information on the game system while fielding requests for additional content to add to the game. There are other forces in the rules that were not planned for miniatures until later but this could change if the funding keep growing.
The newest update to the Kickstarter blog has art and descriptions of the Fortune Hunter starter force, heavily armored mercenaries and explorers of the depths, including their powerful anti-ship mech constructs.
