I for one will be keeping a close eye on how this one progresses.

model looks interesting, card seems a little busy, can't really say much more at the moment since the boardgamegeek link is dead, and the other has very little info

Sorry SC try the one below.

In a way the busy look of the cards intrigues me. They suggest the game may have some depth.

depth will be good, as long as the cards busy nature is still easy to navigate, but we'd need the rules to know, but it just gives a busy impression

I know where you are coming from SC. Sometimes a game can be too clever for it's own good. Lets hope this one doesn't disappoint.

One bit of cleverness it does have which I didn't pick up on at first is the terrain system will be like Tetris, which I assume means you can make as big or small a map as you want and as varied as you want within the limitations of the tiles provided. I like the sound of this.

The tiles also seem to have game mechanics marked on them which I assume the characters interact with and this may be the reason for the busy cards. I would rather have a busy card than a load of extra reference sheets and aids or tablet sized character sheets.

I am starting to have a joygasm with the potential this game may have.

Just found a newsletter from the publisher. The fluff is good and the previews of the minis are great. The sculpts are on par with as good as any I have ever seen.

Red, at least from the fluff in the newsletter it sounds like they have thought about it and it will have good background fluff. I do like those minis. Although I would love them pre-painted, I would still be happy if they were plain so long as the game got to market. It seems like a lot of companies coming out with new games are ditching their pre-paints at the moment.

Yup just checked it myself and it no longer works. I am assuming they may be loading some more info on Earth Reborn? Hopefully it will be back up soon.

Edit - It's back up!

Some more fluff for the fluff gods.
