I’m just back from Mantic where I was running down a number of loose ends. This is just catching up with some of them.
First up, the Deadzone rules are now available digitally for KS backers. I’ve put up an FAQ page to catch questions as they arise and I’ll have a concentrated go at answering them tomorrow when I can sit down with the printed rules.
Also, many of you have realised that the DZ rulebook doesn’t include a stat list. This means that you need the cards to play, which you haven’t got yet. At least, not the final versions. This was an oversight on our part and not intentional – we want you to play it!
Having looked at the final files we have for cards, they’re not in a printer friendly version at all. Well, they’re printer friendly, if by printer you mean the guys who have a factory that knocks these things out in high resolution by the tens of thousands. Not if you want a single copy without eating 3 whole toner cartridges. It’ll take them a little while to sort out all the decks into a friendlier format and with the Mars Attacks KS finishing this weekend they just aren’t going to have time till early next week. Sorry about that. It’s not forgotten though.
I took a moment to snaffle myself a few bags of the Deadzone production models. Not all of these have arrived in the factory yet, but there are a selection. As regular readers will know, I’ve not been doing any painting or modelling of late and haven’t any personal experience to speak of with restic as a material. However, as I’m slowly getting back into this and have cleaned up both metal and hard plastic models in the last week, now is the perfect time for me to see how restic compares. We’ll come back to this over the next couple of days.
If anyone has any particularly good recommendations, suggestions or experience on how best to deal with restic, please comment below.
Now, back to Martians. Apparently they need Deadzone stats too…
