Confrontation is one of those games that us "old time gamers" tend to talk about with a wistful sigh. A game from the early days of minis that just didn't quite have the backing to keep going strong. And then it was gone, seemingly forever. But "seemingly" is the operative word, as Sans Detour has launched a Kickstarter campaign to bring it back to your tabletops.
Sans Detour is working on bringing back Confrontation, a game that I know many of you have fond memories for. The minis were certainly pretty. Well, they've given us some more information about what you can expect when the Kickstarter goes live in April. They're letting us know about the number of minis and factions and man... it's a lot of 'em.
I remember when Confrontation first came out. At the time, at my LGS, all we really had were GW games. Then Confrontation and Warmachine showed up at basically the same time and split the community almost down the middle. I tried a little bit of both. However, as time went on, Confrontation ebbed away while Warmachine kept on the rise. Many people miss the Confrontation system. Well, next year, their wait for its return will be over. The game will be making its way to Kickstarter for a rebirth.
Fan-favorite game, Confrontation, is going to be making its way back to tabletops soon. Sans Detour has acquired the right to the game world of Aarklash and are going to be making a new miniatures skirmish game, a board game, and a range of miniatures to go with them.
Improbable Cast will be making new castings of old Confrontation statues and has started taking names of the people that want them. Take a look.

From the announcement:

Remember Confrontation? Rackham Miniatures? Just love awesome fantasy stuff?

I’m bringing it back baby. The first of a series of FULLY LICENSED re-issues of LONG out of production statues (120 mm+) originally released by Rackham in France in 2004.

The first up is the Dwarves of Mid-Nor Scourgebearer. This was the holy grail of my collection for many years until I finally tracked one down and what inspired me to acquire the license to produce them again.

I will be taking pre-orders for the first run at a deeply discounted $99 + shipping until October 15, 2012. After October 15, 2012 the regular retail price of $135 + shipping will be effective. This unpainted solid resin kit will be supplied in 5 pieces: body, halberd arm, lantern, puppet and chain (styles may vary).

I will also be producing an EXTREMELY LIMITED edition (5 total) of solid cold cast bronze that will be available for $600 + shipping on a first come, first served basis. Each of these castings will be numbered with a certificate of authenticity.

We have heard that Confrontation is going to being brought back in full. We will have more updates on this, as we hear more.

Has anyone else heard any rumors about this? What do you think?

New miniature manufacturer Legacy Miniatures have acquired the rights to the Confrontation range of figures. From their announcement:
Legacy Miniatures is excited to announce that they have secured the license to the entire Confrontation back catalog, and will immediately start producing previously released and unreleased figures from this amazing and sorely missed miniatures line. Confrontation was a game published by Rackham Entertainment until it entered liquidation in 2009, and some of the most amazing 28mm figures in the world ceased to be available at that time. Cyanide Studios, a prominent French video game developer, has acquired the Confrontation IP and has licensed the miniatures to Legacy Miniatures. "We're incredibly pleased", said Vincent Fontaine Artistic Director of Legacy Miniatures and former Paint Director of Rackham Entertainment. "We're starting out slowly and doing about 2 to 4 releases a month, some miniatures that never saw production before Rackham closed its doors."
