KickStarter, Goalsystem Delves: Dungeon Skirmish Role-Play

A friend of mine, Scott Pyle, has a new game system up on Kickstarter called Goalsystem Delves: Dungeon Skirmish Role-Play.  Scott is the creator of the GoalSystem and has a series of games including SuperSystem, Chaos in Cairo and a few others. 

If you're a big fan as I am of his other systems, you will really want to check this KickStarter out.  There are only 4 days left.

Goalsystem Delves provides rules and adventures for playing character-driven skirmish games in fantasy worlds of mysteries, magic, and monsters. These rules harken back to the days of classic dungeon crawls and the world’s most popular fantasy RPG.  Players take the roles of a group of hardened adventurers seeking treasure, glory, and the defeat of the festering evils that remain hidden in the darkest corners of forgotten dungeons.

Goalsystem Delves seamlessly blends RPG and tabletop miniature elements into a fast paced tabletop experience that provides the depth of an RPG with the fast paced action of a tactical miniatures game. Delves plays fast, allowing players to run a multi-encounter Adventure in a single session and epic campaigns over multiple sessions. 

The game is written for 15mm and 28mm figures, although the miniatures that are in the KickStarter are 28mm.

Mantic Games, Enforcers

Mantic Games have some interesting 28mm figures coming out on September 17th called the Enforcers.  If you're a Necron fan, you will probably enjoy these.  The sort of remind me of Ironman troopers.  I really like the leader with the blade, would make some cool space marine power armor.

Trench 2114, Panzer Troopers Infantry

Here are some pictures of the Trench 2114 Panzer Troopers Infantry. The troopers are a good size for 15mm and would fit in nicely with others. They are certainly bigger than some, but are also pretty heavily armored.

This blister contains enough Panzer Heavy infantry to field two platoons of 15mm troops (10).  So your paying about $1 a fig.   Based on the size of the figures, it is a pretty good deal.  There is certainly a lot of metal.  There are 3 different poses.  My pack came with 2 commanders and 4 each of the other 2.

Overall the figures I received would probably get an "A".  There was almost no flash to speak of.  The only flash was on the under side of the base.  The guns are nice and big and shouldn't break.  There is loads of detail that will not get washed out when you paint the figures.

Trench 2114, Heer light infantry

Recently I received some samples of the Trench 2114 Panzer Troops.  The miniatures were clean, crisp and had limited flash, which only was on the bottom of the base.  I was really surprised how nice they looked compared to how I imagined they would look.  I will have some pictures up soon.

Here are some greens of the Trench2114 Heer light infantry. 

I am really interested in seeing how these will compare size wise to the upcoming Clockwork Goblin Minis.  Hopefully people will be able to mix the two companies figures.

Urban Mammoth, Urban War, Neo-Isk Starter Strike Team

Here is a look at Urban Mammoth's 28mm Urban War Neo-Isk Starter Strike Team.  John Robertson is sending me out a few samples to preview.  I like how this army is shaping up.  The weapons don't look over the top or too big.

Stonehaven Miniatures Kickstarter

I have always been a big fan of Dwarfs, so it is no surprise that I am a little excited about Stonehaven Miniatures Kickstarter project.  The figure artwork is fun and the figures themselves should be great sculpts.  If you sign up for the $40 Mega Goal pledge level, you currently are going to get at least 11 of these little suckers.
