Earth-Shaking Announcement

Privateer Press Announces Monsterpocalypse Hobby Miniatures
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.

And the Monsterpocalypse rules pdf is now available for download: https://www.monsterpocalypse.com/wp-con ... ok-WEB.pdf

Looks like the rules are much the same as before, with some minior tweaks. I'm still undecided, and it’s literally been decades* since the last time I tried to paint minis, but I did like this game and I'm still temped to give it another try.


*back in ‘95-'96, the old HO scale Heavy Gear minis.
