Looking forward to lots of these figures.

I love the theme, though I would have told the story as being a strange area, deep in the jungles, where the universe doesn't make sense, as opposed to a different location.

This way, it's easier to explain-in more Vietnam War icons such as helicopters, ammo resupply, boats, crashed airplanes, Col. Kurtz characters, 1960s drugs and people making stories about this strange location deep in the jungle being blamed for being on drugs, and so on.

Also, CIA and Triad drug-runners, things like that.

However, they did a great job with this and I look forward to building and painting some minis.

I’m looking forward to seeing how this Kickstarter goes. It starts later today, but I have a preview over on my website.

This is the Golem, a creature that begins as pure energy but by animating the dead and using them as its hands, begins to build itself up out of organic and inorganic material. As it progresses it grows, its shape changes. the zombie servitors adding ever more matter, sometimes including themselves when they eventually merge bodily with the creature.

I like how you have bodies of people incorporated into it.  That's extra-horror-cool!

Reminds me a bit of DOOM, as well as the Tour of Darkness RPG from Savage Worlds.  :o

GM (me) - you spot a 70 year old grey hair little old lady.. Clutching large leather bound book and a uzi.

“Tom”- “She has a Book!!!”

“Danny”- “I put a bust of M4 fire between her eyes” rolls…

Phil- “if he misses I put a shotgun slug in her face” 

That’s the Delta green baby"

We just shut it down to improve the presentation and get some more details done.
We were not happy with the response we were getting and we think we can make the presentation more clear about the project and hopefully bring more support.
Thanks for your support and keep an eye out for the relaunch.

Black Sun, but not Kickstarter related.... I've tried to order something off the CC/Black Sun site and there's issues with your shopping cart. Two emails sent a month ago remain unanswered. Please advise.

I think I am responsible for screwing up their relationship with PayPal. 

They mistakenly sent me two extra packs of their amazing Flint and Feather minis in a larger order.  I insisted upon paying for them.  We had repeated problems with PayPal and I think PayPal suspended their account. 

I think they have fixed it a few days ago, roughly 18th of May 2019.

So, please don't blame Crucible Crush, just be patient for the moment and try your order again.

If it still does not work, please continue to be patient.  It's not their fault and they are not doing anything wrong.
