SLA Industries Cannibal Sector 1 Kickstarter


The British science fiction horror roleplaying game SLA Industries has been around, in one form or another, since 1993. It has had a recent resurgence in popularity and now the creators, Nightfall Games have decided to create a skirmish game based around it. They have just launched the Kickstarter campaign for SLA Industries: Cannibal Sector 1, which is a rather long-winded title, but I suppose they want to game tied into it's original theme.


The theme is definitely Post Apocalyptic/ Dystopian however it has aspect of The Running Man or Death Race movies about it with figures getting bonuses if they pull off flashy moves in front of the, ever present, TV cameras.


Based on a opposed 2D10 roll, the system is described as straightforward, which is always a good thing...



The range of accompanying miniatures are beautifully sculpted and to my mind are very evocative of the artwork found in the classic British comic 2000AD.





The campaign has already reached three times it's initial goal, and is now knocking down stretch goals, with nearly a month to go.

Saltlands Boardgame Kickstarter

I just spotted a new Kickstarter for a boardgame called Saltlands.


Set in a Post Apoc future where water is very scarce, groups of survivors have to try to survive in the hostile Saltlands.

The first thing that stands out about the game is the fantastic, and beautifully stylised artwork.


The game is tile based and comes with a large selection of miniatures and cards






Check it out HERE.

Westfalia Publishing 28mm Wsteland Survivors Kickstarter

Wesfalia Publishing have just launched a Kickstarter campaign for 28mm figures that are heavily inspired by the Mad Max franchise.


 The campaign is a small starter that will possibly lead on to a larger range of figures. This makes a change as many companies try to push out really large ranges and end up pushing things too far...
The campaign has already successfully funded!

 




The final figure is an addon that will be added to all the sets if the campaign reaches £2000. As it is already past the £1000 mark this seems fairly likely!

A Couple of PA Kickstarters on the go at the moment!

I am very busy at the moment but I feel that these projects need pointing out sooner rather than later.

The Devil's Run: Route 666 is a board game Kickstarter. Using 1/72 scale miniatures to race across terrain boards.




Salvation Road. Another Kickstarter project, this co-operative boardgame seems to share some concepts with Last Night on Earth (a zombie boardgame).

Ramshackle Games have just released a set of 20mm Bikers. These will be ideal for Road Warrior type games that use Matchbox, Dinky or HotWheels size cars.


This is a a nice little set for £15. I have been planning on getting a few cars to use with Outrider, and these will be perfect for that...
