MONSTERPOCALYOPSE!!!

Recommended Posts

I found them super easy to assemble. 

Painting them, that’s another issue. 

 

Got a game in tonight, really came down to the wire. His Gorgy was at 2 HT, my Def-X at 1. I tried to run away so that I could finish him off with my units but he swatted a g-tank into my face. Game Over. 

 

I am so so looking forward to getting more than just apartment buildings to smash.

I got two fairly significant chunks of resin where you connect Goghadra's head. And then an even larger chunk on one of his shoulders. That part of assembly is something that makes me nervous, as well as removing the hands from the sprues. 

Luckily, my units were near perfect. 

And one reason I am looking forward to my Giga Robo order is getting the plastic buildings to replace the cardboard Apartment Buildings.

Curious about this game.  Wonder how much fun it'll be to someone who's more interested in fun, thematic battles than a competitive scene.  

Should be good, if you have like minded opponents. The big draw of the game for me is the spectacle, having a full city set up just looks so cool.

March releases.

And it looks like the Now factions are coming to the game next year.

Though the agenda switch of Uber Corp and Tritons are a surprise. 

And in other news, I am finally going to get around to assembling my Gorghadra this week.

So Uber Corp is the "invaders" instead of "collaborators"? That is a bit odd.

Destroyers. And Tritons are Protectors

In the new game (so far) there are just Protectors and Destroyers, each with several factions, and Ubercorp is a destroyer, presumably the idea is strip mine and exploit with no concern for consequences. 

And yeah, that threw a lot of people for a loop.

did they take out some factions? There were 12, 6 in the first 3 waves and then a new 6 in the later waves.

They took out some agendas. Originally there were 6 agendas, each with 2 of those twelve factions. Now there are only 2 agendas, each of which will (probably) get 6 of the original 12 factions. 

So far the original 6 factions have 1-2 monsters and 10 units each, organized into the 2 agendas. Like Sithborg has said, they have announced releases for 4 of the second 6 factions for next year, and it is assumed the other 2 are coming, but only monsters and the faction building for those 6 factions have been mentioned, there is no word yet on any units for the second 6 factions. 

 

PP seem to really be trying to push the idea that you choose an agenda (protectors or destroyers) to play, not a single faction (Cthul, shadow sun, Ubercorp), so it may be a while before we get units specific to those later factions.

It does look like they are slowing down releases. 

Simians release in June, with Kondo and units, and then General Hondo comes in July.

And UberCorp in August. I don't remember the Shinobots from 1.0, though.

Though a Triton and Subterrarian is up for pre-order.

A few guys in my X-wing group just picked this up. I've been eyeing it since it was announced, but have yet to pull the trigger. I'm fairly close to buying in, but I know I'll end up spending all my X-wing Epic money on it! :lol:

On the plus side, it is much easier to stick to what you want than the original game. As it is, I am only really interested in half the Destroyer agenda factions. And maybe half of the Protectors, but that is going to wait.
