Sci-fi Greatcoat Infantry

First, I’m going to be a teenage girl here and say: OMG.

Screencap from the Beasts of War video preview

I saw this video this morning on Tabletop Gaming News, made by the crazy guys from Beasts of War and I purchased one ticket to Bonertown:

I’ve been watching this product from Wargames Factory for a year now, maybe longer. It certainly feels longer. Wargames Factory makes plastic miniatures in tons of different genres (mainly historical), and they also have a section of their site called the ‘Liberty and Union League’ where users can come and suggest figures for Wargames Factory to design. If the idea gets enough votes (via ‘pre-orders’ where no actual money is put down) then Wargames Factory will produce and sell these figures.

The first set of Liberty and Union League minis that I purchased were a set of zombies and they’re fun to build and paint. I’ve used some as playing pieces for our game Zombie Rally when giving demos at conventions, and I want to paint up the rest of them for funsies.

But I’m really looking forward to getting these greatcoat sci-fi guys. They have this very cool vibe of being sci-fi but also looking kind of retro and gritty. They can be the shocktroopers of some draconian futuristic society or post-apocalyptic vigilantes trying to wrest order back from the clutches of lawlessness. I plan to buy a bunch when they come out, which will hopefully be soon.

    Thanks!

    We’re looking forward to putting these out and seeing the response. SF was something I’ve always wanted to get into and the L&U kicked us a bit to get us going!

    We hope you like them “in the package”
