Macrocosm - Kickstarter Imminent

Macrocosm have announced they intend to run a kickstarter this Autumn (starting 27th August) for two new factions for their game. You can read about it here. They are the Grem, and the 3rd Race. Here's the lowdown:

“Who are the 3rd race? As yet no one knows, they use mechanical suits of unknown make. There has never been a living entity captured on the battlefield. Intelligence suggests these suits are being controlled by craft in orbit of the colonies.”

"Who are the 4th Race? The Grem Alliance! The Grem Alliance are a race of three different creatures who used to be slaves. They banded together to overthrow their evil slave masters centuries ago, and since then have grown in size and intelligence. They are very militaristic and expansionist.

Their main industry is War. The Basic Trooper is supported on the battlefield by its distant cousins the Dire Grem and the Gremlings, whilst not exactly as evolved as the Grem are they still have found important roles in the Grem society.”

I may have been lucky enough to have had a hand in designing some of the upcoming range, and they are going to be a lot of fun if the Malignancy and the Diggers are anything to go by. Speaking of the Malignancy, I do love anything vaguely cult related, and there are some very tasty things coming from Macrocosm for fans of the Malignancy in the next wee while.

    1. I know! I'm super curious to see how the Grem turn out. I'm pretty sure I'm going to want several Dire Grem.

  2. I spoke to Chris at Macrocosm about this only yesterday in fact, before I coughed up for more Malignancy models. If the Grem/Dire Grem are handled as I hope they will be I will be on board for some of those for certain.

    The hobby needs some militarised, 80 sci-fi styled greenskins IMO.

    1. I would say that the hobby is going to get quite an injection of organised, well-disciplined greenies. Clean gear and shiny boots all round.

  3. Saw these on the facebook group they are pretty cool concepts especially the Grem :D

  4. I’ve gotten to be quite a fan of the Macrocosm line of miniatures over the last while. Macrocosm leans heavily on the Rogue Trader era for inspiration, often taking long abandoned.

    1. That's part of the reason I like Macrocosm so much, they really harken to the Rogue Trader era. You should see what they have plans for...
