If this was a podcast, I’d be squealing like a little schoolgirl. To say I loves me some Mars Attacks is like saying Rebel Wilson prefers a gunny sack of Krispy Kreme donuts to a bean sprout salad with a light vinaigrette. It’s an understatement. And before anyone accuses me of hating on the fat people, I’d be right there with Rebel choking down chocolate covered creme-filleds and slamming a 2 liter Mountain Dew.
So, Mantic Games started hitting me with e-mails (I’m not special–I subscribed) a few weeks before their Kickstarter campaign for the Mars Attacks Miniatures Game went live. When it did, I backed that bad boy immediately. From the box art to the miniatures to the terrain, the whole package looks freaking awesome and I can’t wait to play.
Note, of course, that the minis don’t come painted, but they do come with the clear helmets. Dude. They come with the CLEAR helmets. Whatever I’m working on when this box arrives (est. delivery August of 2014) is getting set aside and the neon purple, pink, and blue paints are getting broken out. And did I mention that the stretch goals & add-ons are amazing! They’ve got burning cows (sorry PETA) and flying saucers! Eeeeeeeeek! (little schoolgirl squeal).
So, unless you want your Nerd Card revoked, get on over to the project page and get to backin. Until next time…stay nerdy my friends
