Close out goodness. My group is now maxed at 4 figures of every type and extras for conversions!

Wow, this game didn't last too long. The collectable aspect to it kept me away. My favourite FLGS also sells the game off pretty cheap. It's too bad really.

Gah!  For once I'd hoped it was an AUS site or free international shipping.  The prices are nice and then shipping comes into the factor

Alas the hunt for a bargin continues! *Is still on the prowl*

You are looking for a good deal, man this is plain consumtion.

Buy what you like, the shipping is HOME TO YOUR HOUSE, STRANGER.

Then, enjoy or miss off - since there will be discussion for newbees and a parallel between those who own the markers, minis.

Get LL and play it forever. Buy the rest at 7$ what is the deal?

I´ve also got several warpacks and a couple of starter sets left. If you are interested, you can write me an email at info@phantasos-spiele.de - maybe i can give you a good deal, if you live in europe. I can email you a list with all the items i still have.

A rather aggressive responce and I don't want to drag myself into an argument.  However what I will say is that in my situation,after customs/taxes/shipping costs, that $7 US is suddenly 2.5-3 times that amount and once currency is converted, is getting very close to its original price for a game no longer in circulation let alone supported.  That is why I spoke my mind, that if it were as I said, an Australian site, the additional costs would not be a factor and it'd be a no-brainer buy.  Or if it wasn't Australian but allowed free shipping on large bulk buys like some hobby sites offer, again the additional costs would not be a factor and it'd be a no-brainer buy.  I ended cheerily by saying I was still on the prowl for a good deal that applied to my individual situational circumstance.  I hope that clears it up for you.

I've still got a few places left on my list to try Dominik but thanks for the offer, its much appreciated!

Sorry, for my aggressivness, I was only trying to say that I reckon this game will soon be an obscure ounderground game, a game for only those few that acctually bought the stuff that soon will not be able to buy. And if the cost 7$ I didn't see any reasons left for not buying into the game - if you're intreseted in this game, which you seem to be. I want this forum full of gusy who got lots of stuff and play campains and tell us all about it! Sorry again.

 I didnt mean to start a crap storm. I was only posting a site that had some great deals on MC. and I disagree that a forum should be just full of campaigns and posts on games. That post was done to encourage a community and get people to buy stuff. Now this "community" can get the entire game with all the figures for a very low cost. A basic set for $10 and boosters for $7.00 with a lost legions for $10 just think what a few buddies can get.  We had a new guy enter our game group and he got a great 10/10/10 Brahaus army for under $100 and his force has 4 vulkans! Thats a community and that is a deal. We now have 4 players and I hope others who read this post buy this game because you wont find a better group game that is fun and easy and this easy (with the bargains) to play.

No worries Mutant2089 and very true Liss.  Although methinks I'll settle for a smaller force rather than attempting to eventually collect the lot since Lost Legions is now no longer available (You know that nagging feeling when you haven't got a full set of something - no way I'm going through that!).  Might try get a set or two for each faction with Capitol being my main force and the variety of other Minis/factions allowing players to try out different things/tastes.

Sad reading all this, although I hope everyone finds their bargains. This was an innovative game with a lot of promise that just didn't catch fire in the market place. Too bad.

I am now nearly out of stock of MC starter sets and warpacks. I can still re-order some warpacks for the normal price from my distributor, but my own stock is nearly gone.

I still love and play the game a lot. I´ve got nearly four miniatures for each type of figure to use the normal maximum in a 10/10/10 game. There is still one partner left in my town to play the game with (he has his own collection), and two more players who are willing to play with my figures when i´ am inviting them.

so, not everything is lost.

Cool idea, but utterly predictable.

Mineatures games should NEVER, EVER be "collectable" in the "buy 47 booster packs and hope one has the model you want" bullcrap theme. Especially with the world economy in general and the US economy in particular going to hell it gets really hard to justify the "game lottery" approach to a hobby.  GW and Reaper continue to have decent sales because they offer nice products AND you can buy EXACTLY what you want. No guesswork, no random dropping $200 only to find out you still don't have the model you wanted.

I wish all of you luck in completing your collections.

On the positive side, this is not the first time Mutant Chronicles has come and gone, so give it a few years and chances are decent that you will see it on shelves again.

Poor MC,great Setting but just cursed  ,it's like the Dark Soul really had it in for any company that took on MC.I have a ton of metal from WarZone and we still play & might have been interested in FFG version except:The Scale(whose bright idea was that?),too bad they didn't try the Siege of the Citadel approach or made it a dark future of ToI.RIP

Great setting, too bad it can't seem to stay alive. I remember when Target Games went under and you could buy tons of Warzone and Chronopia for cheap. Well maybe I can pick up some MC now, never really sold at all in my area so online I will have to go, see if I can at least get enough to build an army or 3 to play with some day.

Like MCIC we make a miniature for use like Brass Apocalypt.

You can see it here:

Seems to be MC has a hard time staying alive. I hope to pick up some of this soon so I have enough to play a few games with from time to time.
