So, Sedition Wars has been in the house for a few weeks now, our first Kickstarter game to arrive. It's a sci-fi survival horror game; if you think of the Aliens movie, you won't be far wrong. So far, the game has been fun to play, although my wife is winning all the games.
For a table-top board-game has many components. Big boards for the space ship, stats cards for each miniature, counters for tracking effects in the game, and of course miniatures. A huge number of miniatures.
The Kickstarter campaign had the option to get a double load of miniatures. This seemed like a bargain, but now I am overwhelmed with little men (and women) and monsters - over 150 miniatures, most of which are multi-part. There are more to come in a second shipment, including 70 pieces of scenery - doors, computer consoles, etc. They are very detailed and cleaning them up is much harder work than I expected - they are made from a very hard plastic. On the plus side, the plastic holds the detail very well and the figures are very well made.
Here's a few pictures of some of the miniatures, straight out of the box. Some of good guys (the Vanguard):
Some of the bad guys (the Strain):
