Well, the news has got me painting and buying models again at least smile.gif

I will be in the for the KS next year and holding out to see what this resurrection edition offers. Not pleased about the minis being produced in resin,but luckily you can still buy the metal models at Cadwallon Miniatures which have the whole range and are currently on sale.
I hope Cadwallon stay around and are not forced to close due to this KS.

A video interview with Sans Detours this weekend from a con in Cannes.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VKsjbdxuBO4

Take aways (as my limited French understands):
- The KS will come in a box
- Each of the 16 factions present in Conf v3 will be represented in the box
- The KS will produce 178 unique models (IE, no repeats)
- Confrontation Resurrection, the game, will be ready in 1029, and takes place after the Ragnarok
- All existing factions will be present "One way or another"
- The rules in Resurrection will be new, but will go back to 'the fundamentals of the game" and be skirmish level
- Rules will allow quick immersion, and will be quick to play.
- SD want the Classic Confrontation KS to be a luanch pad for new players as well as something for existing players.
- Everything (model wise) in the KS will be usable in Resurrection.
- I believe he confirmed old models will be usable on Resurrection.
- There will be a role playing game.
- There will be a board game.

They finished with some images which I believe were the forces which will be available int he KS:

Hope there isn't simply 1 option for 178 figs as that will get very expensive and massively limit it.

I was hoping the same, but this is from another forum from a guy who spoke to SD at the con:

"Figs will be good plastic, but with two different plastics (like mythic battle), a harder for small parts.
It will be a big box, with 178 figs + strechs goals, with a playable component by faction.
Then, in 2019, new rules, new figs (including akkyshans !!), and derivative products (board games, role playing ...). Among the old figs, only the figs of the first KS will be playable with Resurrection."

So it sounds like one pledge level is a distinct possibility, which would be a mistake IMO.

Not interested in one box with 178 random models from various factions regardless of the price. Looks aimed more towards splits between new players than existing collectors that pretty much have everything in a better medium.
Rules, perhaps, select basic unit figures, definitely, but it doesn't look like being an option atm.
Scant info still with only a short time to go.

And one more round up from someone who can actually speak French (so losing my crappy translating skills):

"KS classic in April:
- 178 figures from the 16 armies of the game, put together in a big single box Conan format.
- 3D scan of existing parts to redo masters.
- Plastic molding, Conan quality or Myhtic Battles.
- Reprint a C3 collector book without the slightest change in rules (I do not even know if 3.5 will be put in it).
- The figs of KS will be entirely playable in the future Confrontation Resurrection.
- Availability only via KS, these pieces will never be available for shops.
- The idea is to put Confrontation back on the scene (the range has been dead for 10 years, a lot of current players have simply never played, or even have not heard about it) the time to refine Resurrection.

Resurrection:
- New system of integral game.
- Coming in 2019.
- Destined to be available in store.

My personal impressions :
- Most of the figures of Classic will be simple reprint, but some new surprises will be in, otherwise I do not understand anything.
- Square pedestals for Classic, since the C3 rules will be provided with it would not make any sense to do otherwise.
- With a box "Conan format", we can expect a price "Conan format", so between 150 & 200 € the pledge, plus FdP & possible addons pay."

That doesn't sound like something for me.

Also find it misleading to use pics of the painted metal or resin models when they will be providing board game plastic models.

Lol after all that time to bring back the game using an inaccessible full-package kickstarter. I'm sorry, but I'm not having confidence in these guys.

So, I contacted SD about my concerns. They replied, not exactly addressing them, but they did say that one detail that hasn't been released yet was that the rules for Resurrection would be released for free when the KS is delivered, so that's something.

"We have extensive a new game coming so let's re release the old one in one big package"

Wtf

And yet the KS will probably be hugely popular and make money hand over fist

Hmm. this is pressing all of my nostalgia buttons.

As long as the quality of the miniatures is good. Does anyone have first hand experience of what "conan quality" is?

Will probably back, will probably regret it. But not a lot.

A question for those of us late to the party:

What was the appeal of this game anyway? I mean I see a LOT of people getting gushy over this, but having tried the game a couple of times I don't see it?

The minis are pretty baller though. There's that smile.gif but.... to me at least there's ONLY that. What am I missing?

I've only been playing for a little over a year, but for me I liken it to Fantasy Infinity. The rules are deeeeeeep. Each part of the game is like a mini game into itself, from the mindtrick card game of initiative to the control you had over combat with assignment of attack and defence dice.

For people who played during its heyday I'm sure there's a fair amount fo rose tinting that goes on also.

From a personal point of view, the game was great and fairly innovative back in the day, however I imagine picking it up now it would feel quite clunky and could certainly do with a refresh.

Was generally about the minis, artwork and feel of the world rather than the rules for me anyway.

Beeeeermp

Not for any reason but one of my close friends is REEEEALLY gushing over the Kickstarter. Gotten to the point where he wants to buy me goblins (gods bless his heart) although I'm in another city and, yknow, don't play.

It's pretty exi. But there may be a few people interested?

Cheers!
