AvP Update

Kategori: AVP

So here´s whats going on and how far they have gotten. Looking forward to more pics soon! :D

AVP Update

Kategori: AVP

Free Marines Update + The end of AvP

Kategori: AVP

So here´s where I´m at with the Free Marines I did want to give them all the same skin tone since they are (Except for characters) the only minis with skin showing in the army.
One redish "sunkissed" skin, a darkbrown skin tone and a more yellowish to bring out more character to them and for me to test my skinpainting skills. Yes I agree not the best pictures, will try to get better later!
And to the AvP KS which is now successfully funded, it ended at £379k and all the juicy stretch goals where met! And the 2000 backers goal was also unlocked. 
We unlocked the Predator ship set and the extra Pred tiles to the main game, as well as the W-Y Commandos, the free markers and doublesided board tiles.
And the 390k stretch goal Prodos were nice enough to give us anyway! Which was!............
An add-on for £5 if we break the £380k Goal. 4 Guns (flamer x2 and smartguns x2) with arms, 1 alternative Sergeant head and 2 different Predator heads.

Boom! Soon only 2 hours to go!

Kategori: AVP

With roughly around two hours to go on the AvP Kickstarter we have reached (right now when i´m writing) 350 631£!! Thats crazy!! Which means that the Predator Ship KS exclusive are unlocked! Also the Weyland Yutani Commandos are now available for you to add-on for 15£!!
And if we get to £370000 Prodos will make the Board Tiles in the main game double-sided and add 5 new Missions! Probably like Capture the flag and such awesomeness!

AND as I said we are very very close to unlocking the 2000 backer Add-on, for which all backers of 'We're in the Pipe' or higher get an additional £10 of free add ons. 

So get in there before its to late!

All bow down for the Queen!

Kategori: AVP

The Big Bitch has been unlocked and we now need some new stretch goals! But first! Now the Queen can be added for £35! 
The new Stretch Goals are.......
Choose an faction and you will get 3 markers (so 3 Eggs or 3 Synthetics or 3 Predator Weapons).
And yes they mean 'per Backer'!
This is an unexpected one so much more to follow. Predator ship tiles, really exciting!

30h then, Game Over Man!

Kategori: AVP

So only 30 hours left on the AVP KS!! If you have no ide what it is get in there now! Its full of goodies! Here´s they newest chart and the newest StretchGoal! 
Now every pledge of We´re in the pipe.. and up will get a Royal Guard (Alien Queen Guard) for FREE!!!! This model will be 80mm tall. (They compare it to the Hive Tyrant from 40k) And also the highest pledgers will get an additional free Predator Berserker model.
Some things that have been unlocked is the:
Colonials Power Loader!
The Predator Young Bloods (These won´t be available in clear resin during the KS)
And lastly the final stretch goal (For now) is the Bitch herself, The Alien Queen! 
This big ass alien will be 120mm tall and fielded on a 80mm base! Wow thats huge! It can be yours for 35£ if we reach the final stretch in 7,5k!

Im a Goddamn Hero! + Update on AvP

Kategori: AVP

So another glorious update on AvP! 
The Wargame book is now unlocked and is available as an Add-on!
The next Stretch Goal is for Cloaked Predators (£220000). Each of the 5 designs will be available at £10 each (including the Berserker and Female) 
Pictures of the AvP openday can be found here: By the nice guy Jason Barlow!
We now have all the Q&A from the Q&A here in text for you guys who dont have time to watch the video!

Interchangability: The models in the game have limited variability and so pose-ability. The add-ons have lots of variability What’s Polyurathene plastic. Strong and flexible [Jarek shows bending of the Pred Spear]. Uses only super glue. Most like ‘resin’. We’ve made 50k models so well experienced.

Square size on board: 1.5 inch. The resin scenery will have the same, but that can be removed by the modeller if they wish. The board is in the finalising stage and so when we get samples they will be shared for feedback Wargame/Board Game.

Board game 

basic rules: ‘plug and play’, simple rules. You go I go etc. Following the narrative

Board advanced game: You pick your force and choose levels of you models. Higher the level the more it costs, but equally the better it is AND you can build your own hero.

Wargame: 10-30 models (depending on faction, Predator less models), works in squads. You go I go etc.  Fairly similar rules to WZR. Plans for Minimum 12 different squads per faction. Lots of stats. Very cinematic.

High Res images of Models?: Coming soon!

Known characters: Licence does not allow film characters. We are hoping for approval for heroes from the old AVP arcade game.

What is only KS: Special Ed board game (box, models in resin)

What’s happening with Warzone: Illian and Imperial are coming shortly [Jarek shows some sneaky peeks of AVP]

Balancing: Prodos uses a system for both systems (WZR and AVP). Jarek developed this when working as a consultant in the computer game industry. Also the game includes environment effects which will make the game very different.

Levels: Each model is ‘levelled’ so a high level Model will be more powerful and with more special rules AND extra actions. So a Level 5 Predator may have 5 actions per turn, whereas a low level marine only 2.

How much resin scenery do I need for the boardgame?: 1 should suffice as there is much more card boards tiles than you actually need.

Customisation for the marines: At the moment the marines in the box and in the KS addon are as is, but all Prodos models are interchangeable. We will look to increase custom options.

Can we cross over WZR and AVP: Prodos can’t and won’t endorse that. The games are both based of the Prodos Gaming Systems, so if a person wants to bridge the gap it should be doable, but that’s their choice.

Why are the board tiles so similar: the board game is set on the ‘Theseus’ and so the terrain will and should reflect this. But further expansions could happen in certain other locations. The ‘Theseus’ has been infected by the Aliens so that is reflected in approx. 50% of the ship tiles.

What plastic will the retail version use: They will be multipose, but simply so. And hopefully made of styrene

What about civilians?: We will have them, but not on the KS.

Future Plans?: We expect that there will be more and more units, squads and variant. It’s not a flash in the pan, instead an ongoing game system with a long and large pipeline of products and plans

Resin Terrain: will be available after KS. If we move to plastic they will need to be redesigned

How many players: ideally 3, but 1+. Can be a sandbox I player: Marines or Predator vs Alien. Aliens controlled by cards and flowchart. Survival, last man standing, defend the post etc. There is skill involved as well as obviously luck.

More predators?: There are 5 already and we will hopefully offer head variants. And can be reposed easily using hot water followed by cold.

Powerloader?: Yes

Queen facehugger?: maybe

Weyland Yutani? yes But if its cool and playable in time yes!

More ranks in the colonial marines?: Yes

What Quality will the Board tiles be?: They will be at least most recent edition Space Hulk.

Will future expansions be in resin?: Yes in the main

Will the rules PDF be released on the 28th?: we will release when they are ready. Rather out at Prodos Quality than less and quickly There will be a forum.

[Jarek shows clear resin prototype of Predator]

Next expansion: The Theseus will crash, then there will be a Jungle expansion. Additionally, lots of little expansions a bit like ‘X-Wing’.

Prometheus?: We don’t have the licence for the Prometheus franchise.

Will the Queen be the egg layer or the mad fighting machine?: Mad fighting machine, but more to come.

And yes now you must be wondering why Im a goddamn hero right?! 
Yesterday I did some more demo games of WZR and atleast two more are now hooked on the Warzone Resurrection! Hells yeah! More people to play against! ;) Warzone Hero Number One! 
But Im not the only one who´s a hero. Check out Rob´s awesome posé ala Badass Colonial Marine Motherf****r!
Yea Aliens and Preds be afraid! Be very afraid!


Kategori: AVP

So here´s the Cloaked Predator model, like how they placed him on the hill and covered by Aliens (Probably pushing the buttons for selfdestruction ;))
And they also uploaded a WIP of the Marines Objective token
A damaged Synthetic with vital information!
Two videos can be seen here too. Firstly a video of the WIP Preatorian and the other one is a update on the Predator objective marker.
 And there´s more! Here we got at picture of the Starterbox Marines and the Add-on Marines, their differences and what will be extra included in the Add-on!

AvP Models Update

Kategori: AVP

So here´s an update about the models and the objective markers for the Aliens and Predators! The markers would make great terrain pieces too!
Eggs! Eggs everywhere, really great details! Two closed, one empty and one crawling out.. 
Predator Objective Markers
These are really nice! But people has asked for atleast one alien head on top, its AvP after all!
Female Predator
Now this stunning model, just wow! The Details are amazing! I really like the spear and wrist blade. Thankfully she has the helmet on. ( So its probably just two pred minis i have to paint the face on!)
We also got the pricing on new stuff! 3x young blood £25, Power loader £15, Cloaked Predator is a £10 piece
Prodos stated in the KS update: - Royal Guard tomorrow (read today) along with Marines Mission tokens concept and Cloaked Predator! 
I have been thinking on the paint scheme for the AVP minis, and you guys will probably not like this ( If your really hardcore fans atleast). I was thinking red skin for the preds and yellow armor. And the Aliens were to be green and almost turning white in the edges! So thoughts on that? ;)

More AVP Updates!

Kategori: AVP

So first off we have a Q&A Video with Prodos. If you havn´t seen it yet, do it! Its about an hour long but well worth it if you want to find out whats in the future or just interested about the KS,
They have announced all the Stretch Goals 
 We passed the 190k Stretch Goal andthe Crusher is now available as an Add-On!
Ohh.. A Clear Resin Predator now thats cool dont you think? Here´s the Material Sneak Peak 
Niiiiiiice! ;)
One of the Predator cards can be found on the KS page now too. Looking really good ( Some people complain about small font on the text, it seems to be the same as on the WZR cards so no problem with reading them!)

Another Update is this computer sculpt ( Which people think is the "Royal Guard", I have no idea ;) )
They have also updated the table showing all the pledge levels and what is so far unlocked. The Prodos baby hasn't yet arrived (Come on baby Rapson!), but when it does each pledger of 'We're in the Pipe' and above will additionally get £10 more of add-ons.
The Concept of the Wargame Rulebook 
The £210k stretch goal is the add on for a hardback version of the Board and Wargame Rules. If unlocked this product will be a full colour and lush document of approximately 150 pages for £25.
Only 9 days to go! 

Wow.. Here´s an Update!

Kategori: AVP

So yeah. I had my schedule full but now!
Finally an update! 
So first off I had a demo game at my local club last Sunday to learn the other backers from my club how to play! What I first saw when coming down the had put these up on the walls!
Ah For Her Serenity! Mmmmm Young Guards ;)
So it was My Capitol against our Mishima (+B-Hood) player. Was a fun game since I hadnt met them before. It was a rather exciting game which I won in the end. ( We quit when he had Hiroko, Meka and 3 Ronins left and I had 2 Banshees, Mitch, 5 Light Infantry and 4 Airbourne Cavalry left! ;) ) Sorry I cant show any pictures but the club had a break in where they stole all the electronics, like the TV:s and the camera with the pictures. 
New updates on the AvP
First off they will change the Invite a friend add-on if we reach 2000 backers to "all pledgers of 'In the Pipe' get an extra £10 of extras for free."
And a picture of whats included in the box!
And now the Egg "Objective Markers" are realesed as an add-on!
And so far so good, the next strechgoal is a real baby stretch!
"As many of you know Mark (and wife) of Prodos Games is expecting a baby!

We were hoping to give this one out as a present when the baby came, but obviously some people are upset about the £185K Stretch the present announcement comes early:

When baby comes and if we are above £170k everyone at 'Payback Time!' or higher will get an additional £10 of addons.

Add-ons are on Mark

Come on Baby! Make Mark pay...... "


Congratz mate! Third times the charm! ;) 


So progress is slow, atleast when I look at how fast some of you are working!
Big Bob Wip!

Hes a real joy working with! Big areas and not to much details, but he´s still turning out really really good! 
And here´s something a brought home from Telford! 
Paul Rist of Paul´s Pistonheads WIP
The Squad Commander of my Heavy Infantry Paul is a tribute to my friend who told me they were the shit and a must have in Capitol, so now he has to lead them in battle! I really like the sculpts and the bulkiness! The huge guns arent drawback either!
And now something for the Legion!
Scarecrow from Batman Arkham Asylum will be my Muawijhe Heretic Hero

He´s one truly amazing sculpt in metal! Yay! I just thought he would be a great addition to the army, when the come in the future but he arrived a little bit early ;)
And lastly I will share some pictures of the WZR cards I have right now.. Waiting for loads of more ;)
The Imperial Doomtroopers cards.. So good ;)
Martian Banshees cards, something I will see if the are a must have in the deck!

Info from KS page

1. What is AvP?

The Alien, Predator and AvP franchise is a highly successful science fiction horror movie series (spanning a massive 10 films) about the battle between humankind and two malevolent extra-terrestrial species; the Aliens and the Predators. The franchise has spawned novels, comics, toys, clothing, computer & video games and now this, AvP The Miniatures Game…The Hunt Begins…

Some great details on these badboys! 
 2. What Xenomorphs (Aliens), Colonials and Predators will the AVP Miniatures Game include?
And here is what will be included!
If you have seen or read about an Alien or Predator type, piece of equipment or human or cyborg concept in any Alien, Predator or AvP film, comic, novel, computer or video game, toy or any other cannon and its cool it is likely that it will be part of AvP The Miniature Game range either now or in the near future.
This will be one hell of a fun game! If you dont want modular corridor tiles try this then!
Resin terrain set! Lovely! :D
And if you feel like your old dices are failing you, try these good looking ones out!

3. What is the AvP The Miniatures Game.

The Boxed Game AvP – The Hunt Begins is a self-contained gaming experience, a fusion of mission and narrative driven Board Game and Table Top War Game. A family game where 1 or more players can sit down and play through their own narrative and develop their own characters and objectives over many inter-linked games. Or players can sit down and play a ‘free for all’ with games like ‘Survival’, ‘Last human/Alien/Predator standing’, ‘capture the objective’ etc. filling an hour or two of your evening or raining Sunday afternoon.

But equally AvP – The Hunt Begins is a portal into the AvP Wargame, which will allow you to play as a Battalion of Colonial Marines, an entire nest of Aliens or a Hunt of Predators. The free AvP Wargame will be available to download and will be available in hardback form when the appropriate stretched goal is unlocked.


4. How does the Board Game AvP The Hunt Begins play? 

- 1+ players (yes, you can play or your own!) 

- D20 Dice System - Narrative and Mission Based 

- Alternative Model Activation (I go, you go, she goes, my next model, your next, etc.) 

- Models gain ‘Experience’ as the narrative progresses which unlocks new special skills etc. 

- 30 Missions cards with 3 unique missions per faction, each has to complete its own goal to win. 

 - Random events and objectives represent the environment and its effects. Lights or gravity may fail, acid burns could make the floor or duct liable to collapse or an explosion could open or close avenues of escape. 

- Tactical Cards for each faction 

- Longevity – Expansion packs with new characters, Aliens, Predators and equipment

- Additionally there will be a ‘free play mode’ (Last Man Standing, Capture the Flag, Defend the Post and many others)

5. How does the AvP Wargame work? 

- 2+ players - D20 based on the Prodos Wargame System 

- Alternative Squad Activation (you go I go etc.) 

- Create your own special characters etc. 

- Army construction – each model has its own points value dependent on the Model type and experience level! (levels from 1 to 5) 

- Narrative games allow characters and models to gain ‘Experience’ to level-up 

- 50 Missions cards (at three levels) 

- Tactical Cards for each factions (120 in total). 

- Scalability (1 to 100s of models per side) so you can play for example 1 Predator against a Platoon of Colonial Marines or a whole Battalion of Marines vs a Hive of Aliens) 

- Longevity – New Alien, Predator and Marine types with special rules, mission and tactical cards will be introduced over the coming months and years.

6. The Game setting, Intro and Story…

The Board Game will be set between the "Alien" and "Aliens" movies.

Wayland Corporation has dispatched the ship “Theseus” into space. Its primary objective to populate the Mining Planet, LV-669, with a workforce of Convicts and genetically modified beasts of burden (to be used for labour and food). The convicts are guarded by a detachment of Colonial Marines and the ship has a strong contingent of Medical Cyborgs. All the humans and animals are in stasis. Whilst in transit, the “Theseus” receives a new order

+++Investigate potential Xenomorph infestation on Planet LV-426+++- -+++extract samples+++ +++ 

The Cyborgs alter course as defined. The ship arrives and sets orbit around LV-426. The medical crew extract ‘Alien Egg’ and ‘Facehugger’ samples from the surface. When they report back they are directed to propagate and incubate the xenomorph samples. They utilise a percentage of the Theseus convict and animal cargo to complete their directive. Putting infected ‘cargo’ back into stasis. Once the new directive is complete theTheseus resets its course to dock with the Wayland Medical Station orbiting Earth. During the return flight, a facehugger escapes the med-bay to get sucked into Power Turbine Cooling System, where it is macerated. The acid-blood quickly destroys the Turbine and breaches the ship’s hull. The Main Power Grid and communications are compromised; hence no communication with Wayland HQ is possible. The majority of the cargo is awoken from stasis with the loss of power. A number of key personnel, the Colonial Marines included are still in stasis, due to secondary power supply grids. After a while the Xenomorphs appear and a short battle between convict, cyborg and Alien ensues. The outcome is inevitable. Meanwhile, a small conclave of Predators has detected the ‘Alien Nest’ and forcibly boarded the Theseus, damaging the computer systems keeping the Marines in stasis. A fire ensues… 

+++fire detected+++ +++stasis-end protocol initiated+++

And here are the stretch goals! How low can we go? ;)
I think we´ll hit the bottom! Prodos might even have to add some goals!
