Privateer Press Announces Monsterpocalypse Hobby Miniatures
https://www.monsterpocalypse.com/The Monsterpocalypse Hobby Miniatures Game represents an updated and streamlined second edition of the original 2008 collectible game’s rules. Additionally, instead of using pre-painted collectible figures to play, the new game’s most noteworthy difference is its use of highly detailed resin and metal hobby miniatures, which players get to assemble before playing. As a hobby game, this upgrade to the Monsterpocalypse experience provides the opportunity for players to customize their armies through painting and modeling them.
I'm a little torn on this. I bought the original pre-painted, blind-box, "collectible" Monsterpocalypse when it came out a decade ago. I love kaiju, and mecha, and skirmish wargames, and I loved the game itself, but I didn't care for the local tournament scene. I'll try not to get my hopes up, but I might not be able to resist.
