Sedition Wars, Battle for Alabaster, KickStarter

Sedition Wars, Battle for Alabaster is 2nd cool KickStarter project that I am going to make a pledge for.  The first one was Steve Jackson's Ogre.  

The game is a fast paced tactical miniatures game for two players, developed by Studio McVey and published by CoolMiniOrNot.

The base game comes with
  • 50 highly detailed 28mm miniatures
  • 50 Scenic miniature bases
  • 5 double sided full colour expandable game boards
  • 60 page rules and scenario book
  • Vanguard and Strain stat cards
  • 100+ full colour game counters
I said base game, because if you buy into the Biohazard pledge ($100), you are going to get a special edition resin figure, + 12 more Vanguard figures.  At least that is the current stretch goal status.  That said, I really think this KickStarter project will have legs, so I am sure we will see potentially more figures thrown into the mix.

If you liked the look of SpaceHulk 2nd edition, you will probably like the Sedition Wars tiles, since Rich Wright is the main artist.  Since Sedition Wars is a high-tech universe, the designers tried to steer well clear of any dark and gothic elements.

Currently there are ten different tiles, and one transit network car (that's a train!), so that gives you a wide variety of different  board set ups.  The size of the tiles are 12x12 25mm squares, so they are 350mm square (including borders) - pretty big!

Bottom line, if you want a lot of sci-fi figures and bio craziness, this game is definitely for you.
