Across The Dead Earth: Upcoming game/Kick starter

Its been bought to my attention lately through facebook of an upcoming game called Across The Dead Earth. Its a post apocalyptic skirmish game set mainly set in the UK and even has zombies in it. There will be multiple themed factions in to.



The background is awesome, the artwork is brilliant and the first few figures have been sculpted by Andrew May in preparation for the kickstarter on the 1st March. Its got me pretty excited so much so when the guys behind it all asked for help on there facebook page to review/testing the beta rules I jumped at the chance!

 I received them Wednesday night from Richard and currently in the process of reading them through. I'm hoping to have a game or two of these beta rules next week and I'll do a post about them then. In the meantime here are some pics of the concept art and the first 3 sculpts.

Ronnie - leader of the Red Claw Gang.

Fatboy, the Red Claw Gang's one man assault squad.

Crimson - Mercenary

Reggie - the latest and youngest member of The Family


Here are the first 3 sculpts done by the very talented Andrew May of Statuesque and Meridian Miniatures.


Crimson


Fatboy now with RPG!

Reggie

  2. I am kick-startered out. It looks like a good project and I wish it well. But no more kickstarters for me. I find if a project does get funded I can get the items I would want anyway from eBay cheaper then getting them on a Kick starter. Maybe I am just cynical. As I said I do wish them well and would like to see them succeed it's just that kickstarters are not the way for me to spend my money.

    1. Fair point. This I think will be a small ish one with only a small outlay for the first two factions from what I've read. They'll also be metal figures as well none of the plastics or restic stuff that seems to be coming out lately.

      I get what your saying completely I think the big boys keep using it to produce stuff has soured the waters some what.

  8. I do love Andrew May's work, but I've already got so much to paint. I think I'll be giving this one a miss, though I wish it all success.
