Haste Games has cancelled their Kickstarter campaign for retooling.

From the campaign:

Hi everyone, we decided to cancel the campaign and come back in a reasonable time period with a better product plus some casts done. It was hard to lead it back at that point because of the stretch goals structure that we created which forced the whole campaign from the start to be a ‘nothing or everything’ project which scared many people to back us. We want to come back with a fresh campaign with a better deal to everyone, from more accessible rewards to a wider variety of products and freebies.

We also want to encourage to all of you to follow us on facebook if you have not done it yet for further updates since the project remains completly alive.

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

    Oh dear. Must admit I was suprised that backer numbers were so low when I dropped by their KS page a couple of weeks ago – especially considering the rather nice designs being shown off (the artwork reminded me of GoT for some reason).

    Still, army-level ‘block unit’ fantasy game don’t seem to be flavour of the month at the moment so I wonder if that’s got something to do with the lack of pledges, or just the high buy-in cost?

      You really couldn’t expect much from a KS offering generic troops for one of the cheapest buy-in armies for a struggling game line in a market flush with quality competitors. Maybe their next effort will include skeletons.

      Also, not that this was the case, but their presentation was practically begging for a cease-and-desist from GW anyway. Admittedly, it was clever to make a non-existent ‘game’ called “The Empire,” but it’s only clever insofar as to establish grounds for consumer confusion, thereby providing a ready avenue for legal action that GW would ultimately lose but wouldn’t have to win, as the implied threat of legal expenses is usually all it takes (Chapter House’s astonishing fundraising to cover expenses and willingness to go to court is a marked exception).

    I really like the flavor of these troops, and look forward to their second attempt.
