Mantic continues to bust through stretch goals over on Kickstarter. They’ve got some new terrain headed backer’s way with one of the latest.

From the campaign:

The Deadzone Kickstarter has not only funded four factions of models and a Core Worlds Building Set, it’s now also funded the Landing Pad and Fortified Defense Line Kits as well!

These versatile new sprues can either be built “as is” or combined with the Core Worlds Buildings Sprue to add even more customizability to your buildings.

The new kits are available to add-on to an existing pledge or be picked as a BattleZone option with one of scenery-only pledge levels such as Urban Battlefield ($100) or Urban Wargames Table ($285)

Hurry, there are still some Early Bird pledges left!

    I’m in for the maxed out scenery package, with the promise of more variants and freebies as the kick starter progresses…this stuff is awesome!

    i find the whole thing a bit confusing

    Confused me a bit too, at first. Makes more sense now that they’ve started showing off what the “Battle Zones” actually are. They’re themed sets of terrain (Landing Pad, Habitats, Barricades, etc.) comprised of a few sprues each.

    You just pledge for the number of Battle Zones you’d want (at $25 a piece, I think), and when the kickstarter is over you get to decide which actual sets you want. So $50, or whatever, gets you a Barricade set and a Landing Pad, or two Landing Pads, or blah blah blah.

    Not a bad deal. I can see some of this stuff retailing at maybe $35-40, later. We’ll see.

    They’ve got some tweaked designs from Antenociti’s terrain range, too. Lots of nice set pieces to flesh out a game table. Prices on those are actually pretty damn good if you go for one of the bundles they’ve set up.

    I was confused..but then it started to make sense.. and now they posted up the 500k stretch and I’m more confused than before.

    Next stretch goal unlocks two new factions. They’ll send folks that have pledged for the game at the $150 level and above one of them for free, but they’re asking folks to kick in $10 for shipping. Since these won’t be ready when the base game will be, they have to ship them seperatley, and can’t afford to take a hit that size on shipping them globally.

      Yeah but the wording on selecting your bonus faction is making my brain hurt…. they are also giving backers a free starter.. but it sounds like at 150 you get the original starters and if you want one of these two you pick it for your freebie… which is fine I guess.. I dunno there are some things that are just kinda weird about the selection process too.. I’ll be one of the last minute backers, especially with developments like this.
