Hammer time!

November 26th - via:
We can’t let the Heroes have things all their own way when it comes to melee, can we? Of course not. So, having just added Bjørn it’s now time to add some serious Nazi close combat power to balance the mix. Enter the übersoldat. Two of them.... (Read More)

A Hero with an axe to grind

November 25th - via:
Mostly, of course, he grinds the axe so that it can be extra sharp for when he meets the enemy. Wouldn’t want to meet mutated Nazi monstrosities with a dull axe now, would you? Naturally, most people think him a little eccentric for relying on an... (Read More)

RAID Missions and Replayability

Yes, I definitely heard something

November 22nd - via:
Sometimes we have to take a step back from adding more Heroes, and just make the game stand out more. That’s what this is all about. Yes, this stretch goal adds a 3D miniature of the alarm to every core pledge. And don’t underestimate the alarm... (Read More)

Did you hear something?

November 21st - via:
That last stretch goal was quite a powerful addition to the Nazi ranks, so let’s go back to the Allied side next. Please welcome our newest Hero, the Polish spy Irena. Her miniature is now included in every core pledge, along with all her cards... (Read More)

Be careful with that…

We’ve added new troopers to the Nazi ranks, and several fresh Heroes to fight them. What we haven’t done so far is add any new Nazi characters. Time to put that right. General von Eichenberg Among the many strange characters who populate the... (Read More)


November 21st - via:
It seems a bit unfair: the Nazis have huge armoured walking machines, and the Reichbusters don’t. Still, it wouldn’t make sense for the Allies to field the same thing (they would be rubbish at sneaking up on guards). However, to even the playing... (Read More)

More Nasties

November 20th - via:

Why won’t these people stay dead?

November 20th - via:
Can you have too many zombies? I’m not sure. If you ask the Vrilmeisters, the answer is “definitely not”. To keep them quiet (they do go on) we’ve added another 6 alt sculpt zombie miniatures to every core pledge. In the game they do the... (Read More)

Alternate soldiers

All Better Now Charging ever onwards, another stretch goal falls!
