I was more than slightly surprised to come home yesterday and find a package containing the first part of my All Quite on the Martian Front rewards from the Kickstarter. I'm particularly excited because of the four Kickstarters that I've pledged for over the past 2 years this is the first one I actually got something from.
After a quick search through the box I pulled out some of the metal miniatures first to clean up. They all looked like rather nice sculpts and although there was some flash on them they were pretty clean. I pulled three of the fleeing civilians to be first into the paint queue.
|Box stuffed with plastic sprues, and this only about half of what I should get.|
|3 of the 6 or so poses of civilians. Is it wrong that these are the figures that I was most looking forward to?|
The plastic sprues also look really good but I'm going to put them aside for the moment in order to get to work on the guys I can use immediately in my own project. The digest sized rulebook also looked nice and I'll have to spend some time reading it over. I'd like to use everything that I can interchangeably between my own Steamworks and the official system. I'll have to figure out a good basing system, especially on the infantry, to do so.
