After The Stars Are Right...

I came across (another) very interesting looking project on Kickstarter - Sandy Petersen's Cthulhu Wars. This project is a board game set after the return of the Old Ones and allows players to take control of one of four of the Old Ones battling across the ruins of Earth. What makes the project uber-cool (aside from the fact it is written by Sandy Petersen) is that it contains sixty-four 28mm scale miniatures including Cthulhu, Nyarlathotep, Shub-Niggurath and Hastur.

Unfortunately there is a catch. Whilst the Kickstarter looks like a great deal the boardgame does weigh eight pounds so postage across the pond is a little it eye-watering to say the least (combined with the pledge levels it is still lower than the RRP but it wipes out most of the Kickstarter savings). However Fenris Games (who are sculpting the miniatures) are looking to ship a container load of the game over reducing postage for UK/EU pledgers and removing the spectre of import duty. If that happens, this could be an unmissable game to pick up.
