More years ago than I care to remember, I stumbled across a miniature range that I thought could replace my first love. The Mutant Chronicles range was characterful and grimdark, but also more cyberpunk mixed with magic. I probably picked up a few of the figures and attempted the rule system which was competing with Warhammer at the time. Some of the mechanics from Mutant Chronicles were similar to rules and mechanics that appeared come third ed, so it was definitely playable.
There was always something about the fluff and the background that drew me in. It’s a shame the company went under and the game faded into non-existence (something about investing badly into telecoms?!).
Fast forward to today and mucking around on Kickstarter (apparently I’m a sucker for punishment). I found this randomly and am considering investing in ANOTHER skirmish level game …
But with figures on offer like this:
And fluff along these lines:
The Solar System is besieged by abominations from the dark beyond, infernal hybrids of undead alien flesh brought into existence by the Dark Symmetry. Mankind is divided into five rival MegaCorporations concerned only with profit and territory as they tear the inner worlds apart in bitter, internecine war. United in faith under the Brotherhood, Mankind may yet prevail – divided, they shall surely fall as the Dark Legion sweeps all before it.
How can one resist?!
There is still a lot of the old stuff out there, so there is some obvious interest. And I’m counting down the days until the end of the Kickstarter campaign.
