All Quiet on the Martian Front - Kickstarter Update

The All Quiet on the Martina Front kickstarter go off to a huge start last week with it achieving the base funding level in a few hours. Currently over at around $116,000, pledge levels have tailed off over the last couple of days, but since then, Alien Dungeon (one of the most responsive kickstarters I've been involved with) have totally re-jigged the stretch goals and some of the pledges, and the amount of free stuff has gone up several notches.

The miniatures (especially the Martian tripods, and let's face it, if they sucked, this would be over) look great, and as recent scale shots posted up have shown, are way, way bigger than I first thought for a 15mm game. The assault tripods are 6" tall, for example.

Anyone who has even a passing interest in War of the Worlds or general steampunkery should give this a look see, even more so now that the stretch goals have had an update.


  1. That's cool. As it happens I've been working on a WotW board game for the last 6 months, must be flavour of the year maybe.

  2. I like the idea of this one, but am a little baffled by the campaign. There is no real indication of gameplay, just an assurance it will be good and a bit of name-dropping. This is the same mistake made by Gates of Whatsisname, the failed 40K replacement game. The sets don't seem very balanced either, favouring one faction or the other. As a potential customer I want to have some idea of gameplay and the chance to buy two roughly equal forces at a reasonable price. Until that happens, much as I like the idea, it's a nonstarter for me. Sadly.

    1. There are some gameplay videos coming up, apparently. There's a very high level gameplay summary here:
