Well Done to....

...Dead Earth Games!

I received my KS rewards a couple days ago, and before I start putting paint to the figures, I wanted to post up a little review of the KS. So...here's what all came in the package - 

The Rulebook is lovely. Full color. Loads of pictures and artwork of lovely post apocalyptic scenes! I'm still in the process of getting all the stuff to play some games, so I'll do a review of the rules here in the future. Something I completely forgot about is that the guys put everybody who supported the KS in the "thank you" section in the book, so it's kinda cool to see my name in there haha. I'm a nerd. Sue me.

Also included are card stock tokens and cards. Now, they'll be perfectly fine once laminated...but I personally would've gone with a thicker card stock. And I would encourage the guys to consider getting tokens made either out of plastic or mdf sometime in the future to sell along with the other products for the game.

"Shut up Dave and tell us about/show us the minis!" Ok ok. So, I jumped in on all the minis produced with the KS monies and man am I glad I did. These things are awesome. The following pics are of them straight out of the bags. I did nothing to them other than set them on my white board. 

The State Faction:

The Red Claw Faction:

The Adam's Family Faction:

As you can see, there was no, I repeat, no cleanup required at all. The sculpting is crisp and well detailed, though they are a bit slimmer than most 28mm figures, I'm chocking that up to it's rather hard to find food in Post-Apocalyptic Britain lol. I'm really excited to paint all these figures. 17 in total. 

Based on the way this KS was handled, the communication between the backers and the lads at the AtDE crew, the quality of the products, and the fact that everything was delivered on time...I can honestly say that I cannot wait to see what they come up with next. And Rich, get the web store up mate! I want to spend more money with y'all!


  1. Gutted I missed this particular kickstarter, especially as some of the ones I've gone with have been a very tiring experience. Lovely posting though and great to see the minis 'live' as it were. Hopefully their website will be up soon so I can get involved and stop looking with envy at all these postings about the game :-)

    1. Hi there! The webstore is now live at: http://dead-earth-games.myshopify.com/

  2. Can't wait for these to hit retail, some of the figures will make excellent zom-poc survivors.

  3. Nice review and I can only echo what you have said they did a sterling job!

  4. Cracking post and agree 100% with what you say, thrilled to have been involved too.

  5. I quite concur! (Though you missed Siwoc in the picture of the state) ;-)

    Look forward to hear about what you feel about the rules.
