Limana Games posts War of Wonders Kickstarter Preview
The project's goal is 4,500 € to produce one US and one Nazi German squad and the Meta-Humans The Flag and Brunhild. Limana Press prepared six basic pledge levels labeled with army ranks, and five of them also have an Early bird option. For example, if you pledge fast and choose the Early bird “Natural Prodigy” level, you can get the same prizes of the Captain level for a cheaper price (20% off). There are two very interesting premium pledge levels too: with the Colonel you can have a squad and one Meta-Human ready for battle, painted by Limana's art studio; but the juicy thing comes with the Four-star General pledge level in which you can create your own superhero and you'll have a new miniature specifically designed and produced for you!
Something about the stretch goals: there are already twelve additional goals on the preview page. Stretch goals start at 5,000 €: the first additional miniature to be unlocked will be Water Village's Shinobi Yashamaru. At 6,000 € the first Japanese troop will be produced. The following goals will unlock the British and Soviet factions, and special troops for the US and Nazis.

Dragon War- Riders of Ashara Table Top Miniatures Game Kickstarter Announced
Dragon War - Riders of Ashara is a table top miniatures game featuring combat between dragons and their riders. Players choose a faction and fight to defend it, or go mercenary and fight for themselves in this game set in an expansive world setting.
The core set is a game where dragons fight each other or against ground and aerial enemies either in individual scenarios or longer campaigns. Each player takes a dragon and a rider (the pairing of riders and dragons are interchangeable) and plays this combination during the game. If either rider or dragon are incapacitated, that unit is out. (If the dragon is incapacitated, the rider flies that dragon into the ground and if the rider is incapacitated, the dragon flies away).
