EotD Kickstarter Ends

My first foray into a kickstarter , which seems to have come all the rage during my sabbatical away from the hobby, has ended. Westwind managed to get £92,848 pledged which I think they will consider a great success. Im not telling how much I pledged!
I was looking forward to Empire of the Dead when I heard it was going to be released , then of course it came out during my break so I did not buy into it, well I have now. I actually started doing some work on my existing figures last weekend in preparation for the rules pdf which I hope we will get shortly. Although the game only needs about 7-8 figures per side , most of the figures will be eminently suitable for all types of other adventures.
With the long bank holiday weekend coming up and my family away I am going to get some of my older figures finished off that I started many moons ago, and Im aiming to run a game on Monday using the introduction adventure on the website http://www.westwindproductions.co.uk/catalog/empire_landing.php
I got plenty of coppers with more on the horizon, I hope Westwind produces some like the artwork above with gas masks.

The kicksarter can be viewed at http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/832150598/empire-of-the-dead-requiem-0

More posting at the weekend....

I have changed my mind and decided to keep this blog purely Victorian. With the arrival of Empire of the Dead Kickstarter:
 and the imminent new rules from Osprey called In Her Majestys Name and accompaning miniatures from North Star
there is just too much cool stuff coming out in the VSF world.
I realy need to start blogging again , sadly the real world keeps interupting.
