I've finally received my final package from the Dreadball Kickstarter run by Mantic Games, and well I'm afraid I have to report a lot of problems.
I received a letter with my package explaining that my season 3 rulebook and season two upgrades had been delayed due to them being more popular than expected. Mantic seemed to imply it didn't matter as I had an electric copy of the rules that I could use, besides the fact that I had ordered the physical book right at the start of the campaign as I don't like electronic rulebooks. It's a let down not to get something I ordered and paid for over a year ago.
My missing Z'zor jack.... 5 months later.
A few of the new MVP's
It's not all doom and gloom though, at least a lot of what I have got is very good. First off the biggest item in the package is the new 'Ultimate' board which is a kind of giant mouse mat. It looks and feel fantastic and I'm now very excited about the deadzone mat made from the same material.
On the whole the miniatures are much better this time as well, sharpness has gone up and flash has gone down. There's still a couple of duds but overall the sculpting quality has improved as well, with the Teratons easily stealing the show, I can't wait to get them painted and playing Dreadball. The nameless team are interesting as well, although their inability to stand unaided proves that the optional bases weren't really optional.
Dreadball is still a great game, and I've got around 60 new figures to paint, I just wish Mantic would get their act together a bit more and actually send me what I've ordered.
