Haven't backed this one, though I was intrigued.  It is fully funded with 9 days to go:

Deus lo Vult The Board Game of Rampage, Betrayal and Agony

Well somehow I let that one slip past, bummer.

Here's another interesting one, and it has gotten a lot of attention ...

Beautiful. Wish I had funded. Not that I have anyone to play it with.

I hate people who don't paint their armies, hate them with all my guts. Beats me how they value other things over painting, like eating or brushing teeth.

Wow, that is totally cool! :icon_biggrin:

I'm imagining they'd make great raiders for going after veggies in halfmen gardens. :icon_mrgreen:

I like the idea of some cute little bunny Ungor raiders.

I'm trying to wrap my head around some justification for painting them up as a part of my own fantasy setting/campaign/whatevs. I like the garden raiders angle.

I recently started stripping and re-priming & basing some old Ral Partha "Thumpers". (See pic below.) I'm repurposing them from my old Hordes of the Things army. ("Night of the Lepus" inspired -- sort of.) Totally different look to them, and I had thoughts on their justification & place in the setting already.  Hopefully it won't be too strange having two* different types of rabbit creatures.



(*At least two.)

Remembering those (which were based on the old Ral Partha Orcs / Half Orcs I think) I was half tempted to make the two ranges the basis of an Orcs and Goblins army. Then I remembered that a - I already have 200+ presoltta Orcs and Goblins hidden away and b - you will do it much better!

We all know this line of thought ultimately ends with an Oldhammer / Infinite Rabbits crossover toy or three, don't we?

There you go! You mentioned doing an oldhammer project but feared the cost -- sounds like you've already got a lot of minis for one.

I do like a lot of the old pre or early slotta orcs better than the later hulking brutes.

Haha. That sounds like a brilliant idea....  :mrgreen:

Getting off topic... but it's not the army I most want to do, but sure, it's the most affordable Oldhammer option for me. Although the 3rd Ed army lists fit mid/late 80s minis better than the pre-slots do.

This looks interesting ... the translation of a Mamluk martial arts writing from 1470 AD ...
