Zombiesmith and Flytrap Factory are looking to fill your gaming tables with adorable little anthropomorphic mice and rats and other fuzzy-wuzzy little critters… who are armed to the teeth and ready to stab one-another to death for dominance. (That escalated fast!) Netherworld’s Edge is a new fantasy miniatures skirmish game that’s up on Kickstarter. The valiant rangers of the Northern Waywatch Chapters must be ever-vigilant, on the lookout for both their enemies from outside their borders, and those that would corrupt them from within. Their main enemy, the vermin of the Borgal Hollow, will stop at nothing to try and breach the protective walls and run amok among the populace, if they get the chance.
The rules for the game will be much the same as used for War of Ashes: Shieldbash, however, they are being tweaked and expanded. There are going to be extra skills, some new special rules, and the fluff will be altered (of course) to fit the new setting. The game is a true skirmish game, with around 5-15 figures per side. The game can be played on a table as small as 2’x2′, so it’s easy to set up just about anywhere.
They currently have 8 starter sets for the game. Each one is $25 and has between 250-350 points worth of models (a standard-sized game is 300-500 points). The starters are: Keepers of Lockhelm, Watchers on the Thornwall, Twighaven Dawn’s Watch, Knight Paladins of the Rose Temple, The Black Cowls, Grimwater Pirates, The Pale Rat and Retinue, and Jargog and his Cohorts. They have several add-on sets you can put as part of your pledge as well.
The campaign is already funded and working on unlocking stretch goals. It’s set to run for another 28 days.
