Progress report: Dreamforge Games: Leviathan Crusader & Eisenkern Stormtroopers
84 Backers
$11,022 pledged of $30,000 goal
29 Days to go
This project will only be funded if at least $30,000 is pledged by Sunday Sep 16, 2:45am EDT.

Thanks to lakedaimonioi, who gave us the info (LINK)!!!

How about getting yourself one a PLASTIC Titan? The Leviathan Crusader is 8 .5” tall (215mm) assembled at the top of its shoulders, slightly smaller than the 10.5" (255mm) FW Warhound Titan. 1/56 scale (28mm gaming scale). The Kit features:
  • Hard plastic Kit.
  • Working hydraulics and ball joints allow for an amazing range of motion and pose options, ensuring no two Leviathans will be identical.
  • Even after you have chosen your final pose, the arms will remain movable!
  • Simple twist on and off arms allow for easy main weapon swaps with all future Leviathan releases.



The pledge price? Just $89! Compare that to the $385 that a Warhound costs in FW. Also, new parts will be added for stretch goals.

ALSO... take a look at the Eisenkern Stormtroopers!!! For $20, you could get a 10 model kit.




Well... there you have it. Go and check it out!!! Dreamforge Games: Leviathan Crusader & Eisenkern Stormtroopers

Damn - another kickstarter well worth watching! I'll hang back until the stretch goals get better - but I can't see why I won't be backing this in a few weeks time (I want that 6th edition boxset to though!).

Yea, just checked out updated pics by Dozer.

On this game. Who or what do this storm trooper guys fight against?

It seems like only the same type models and no enemy models to fight.
Kinda like guard fighting guard.

They need to set up a pledge that will give you a crusader (loving the mini-titan/big knight look) and a stormtrooper box - watching with interest...

EDIT: They've added that you can simply add up pledges - so I could (in theory) get both (and maybe heavy weapons and a 15mm version as well (is that dreadknight or smaller?).

I'm not pledging yet!

I am tempted to get a Crusader and a pack of infantry,

If I read the stretch goals for everyone who pledges for a crusader you can get:

Shown with a lovely MERC’s miniature for scale comparisons.
At $90,000 we will introduce the 28mm scale 8.5” tall Leviathan Mortis as a stretch goal!


After seeing the Mortis I am getting SO TEMPTED.... must resist MUST RESIST!!!!!!

Who does these armies fight against?

Are you supposed to use them as stand ins for 40K or is there any army(s) to fight against?

Or is this like Imperial Guard versus Imperial Guard?

As far as I can tell from the Kickstarter the Leviathan is used by MOST of the different factions. And has so for the last 160 years.

I did see mention of the Brotherhood faction who is supplied Leviathans [Eisenkern uses this Leviathan as a powerful bartering chit with the Brotherhood]. So I guess there will be more factions at a latter date.

Also found this pic to give you an idea of the scale.

ok, thanks as it looked a little odd for just one type of army.

For me I am looking at these as a painting challenge.

Come on when will I ever have a game of WH40k [EEEWWWWW]

My challenge to Mord and the gang is make me some rules for a Titan knight that I can use in Death Squads and I'll be a happy man. LOL

I think there will be more factions coming but I do wish they would have some NOW so we can drool over them as well.

Cheers

Oh my, Titans in DS....That would be interesting.

There is actually a 40K novel based on this concept.

Redemption Corp.

It follows a small group of Imperial Guard who need to down a Titan taken over that has fallen into Chaos hands.

I am sure it would make for a great one off Scenario or end a campaign but would be challenging to make work in Skirmish.

An Apocolypse type game sounds more like it.

Progress Update: Dreamforge Games: Leviathan Crusader & Eisenkern Stormtroopers

311 Backers
$47,304 pledged of $30,000 goal
20 Days to go
This project will only be funded if at least $30,000 is pledged by Sunday Sep 16, 2:45am EDT.



At $40,000, all contributors who funded a Crusader kit will receive a free optional set of plastic Capacitor Coolers, an optional tech item that will replace the cooling stacks on the back of the Leviathan.

Capacitor Coolers: A more recent design development is the capacitor cooler, it was designed to allow the capacitors to fully utilize the power output generated by the Eisenkern Maybach reactor and eliminate the danger of capacitor overload found in the miss matched mating of the Maybach reactor to the Krupp capacitor. The coolers cannot handle the heat generated by an overloaded reactor but will allow for a stronger and cleaner power flow to all systems on a continuous basis. Currently found on the Leviathan Gabriel, its wide spread adoption is inevitable by all vehicles and factions



At $45,000, all contributors who funded a twenty man stormtrooper trooper kit will receive a free optional set of plastic accessories for each box set of the Stormtroopers pledged.

Stormtrooper Accessory Pack: This pack will allow you to customize your troopers in ways unimaginable with most miniature lines. Let your imagination run wild, build vignettes, dioramas; tell a story with your imagination as the only limit!

If you’re like me, you love the ability to customize your minis so that no two look alike. The combinations you can achieve are staggering. This pack includes multiple arm and hands, heads, weapons, pouches and other accessories of war.

We would also like to introduce you to the Cargo Mule, a semi-autonomous mechanical beast of burden. No longer do you need to tie up valuable fighting forces, hauling supplies, ammunition and light support weapons from one end of a battlefield to the other. The (HHM) Hammer Head Mule is capable of following simple commands such as, follow, return to depot and move to that objective. The other option is to utilize the (CCM) Central Command Mule, controlled by your command detachment via a coms link routed back to the Communications Officer. This allows your command squad to control the Mule’s mission, freeing your troopers for the fight.

No addition for shipping unless you would like more sets. If you would like additional accessory packs, simply add $10.00 to your pledge plus the additional shipping.

I'm now much more interested in the stormtroopers than a titan/knight that I'll never actually use (as lovely as it might be). This is conversion heaven (add a few maxmini weapons, heads and maybe a few bionics for extra credit).

I passed on the bones kickstarter (as good a deal as it was - I'll lose no sleep over it), so I could fund these guys and the 6th edition stuff. Anything more and I'll be broke!

Progress Update: Dreamforge Games: Leviathan Crusader & Eisenkern Stormtroopers

405 Backers
$74,122 pledged of $30,000 goal
14 Days to go
This project will only be funded if at least $30,000 is pledged by Sunday Sep 16, 2:45am EDT.



At $50,000 we will introduce the Eisenkern Support Weapons set an available item for pledge. Single box set of Support weapons: $33.00



At $60,000, all contributors who funded a Crusader kit will receive a free optional replacement sword Excalibur! This component, besides looking cool, will provide your Leviathan true game world advantage in the Iron-Core Universe.

(From the Iron-Core game system)

Close Combat Weapons: It may seem counter intuitive to equip such a large target with a weapon that requires you to close with your opponent before you can begin your offence, but nothing destroys modern armor better than a finely tuned plasma stream. Advanced armor is defenseless against such weapons; the focused heat from the blade destroys the tight molecular bond that gives armor its strength. Only the mass properties of more primitive armors will slow the plasma stream of the Reaper Scythe or the Executioners blade. The panicle of such weaponry is Excalibur. Featuring improved plasma emitters and blade capacitors, its destructive power is unequaled. No armor or fortification is safe from its destructive force.



At $61,000, all contributors who funded a Leviathan kit may pledge an additional $25.00 for a Beowulf/Grendel cannon kit. With this kit you can build one of two variants; the massive Beowulf artillery gun or the powerful Grendel siege gun. You choose which suits you best. *This kit will come with everything you need for a single right or left handed version.



At $65,000, all contributors who funded a Leviathan kit may pledge an additional $25.00 for a Nova Cannon. A massive plasma gun that that turns heavy armor into slag.. *This kit will come with everything you need for a single right or left handed version.



At $65,000, all contributors who funded a Leviathan kit may pledge an additional $25.00 for a Nova Cannon. A massive plasma gun that that turns heavy armor into slag.. *This kit will come with everything you need for a single right or left handed version.



These are Kickstarter exclusives and not likely to be released until the variant that uses these weapons are made into complete model kits! If you want them, now is the time to get them, or you may be waiting a very long time for these optional weapons.



LOTS of options... all of them add more expenses. Just Kidding Very cool, thou...
