[CROWDFUNDING/PRE-ORDER] Lunar!
« on: July 21, 2021, 10:17:58 AM »
So something that might interest folks is the launch of Lunar from Black Site Studios - an alternative Cold War era look at conflict on the moon.

Best thing in my opinion is we can finally get a range of multi-part astronauts who are grounded in reality.

Worth a look here: https://blacksitestudio.com/lunar/

Looks interesting, though theit minis are very expensive.

I'd also prefer games with at least 10 - 12 figs per side, but given the cost of the minis ($6.00 each, plus shipping and tax), I can see why the units are smaller.

Wonder what those odd guns with the what looks like a feather duster on the end are supposed to be? I'd back this if it was a digital (stl) pledge. As a kid I converted some Airfix astronauts and a Roco US M5 high speed tractor for some small skirmish games. Good times.

For a boardgame the Tier 1 price is about right but to buy it just to get the miniatures ..no
I am going to build a wargames army, a big beautiful wargames army, and Mexico is going to pay for it.

I agree they are expensive although they do come with a lot of options.

As to the feather duster I think that’s the mining drill!

Some clearer photographs of the suit designs would be nice (admittedly I am using a small and elderly machine to view the site).

It is not clear which states/agencies are going to be in the range.

Yea, I agree, some closeup pics would be appreciated.

As far as I can tell it is US, Soviets/Russians, and Chinese, currently.
