Back in 2008, Mythic and Privateer Press released Monsterpocalypse as a collectible miniatures game. Then in 2018, it rebooted the game and turned it into a non-collectible miniatures game featuring unpainted minis.
Now, Monsterpocalypse is being rebooted again as a board game, this time with a Kickstarter campaign.
This time around, the miniatures are a single-color plastic to denote factions but can be painted for full effect.
Privateer Press has a full gallery of all of the Monsterpocalypse figures that are part of its kaiju collectible miniatures game it is planning to release in October. My only complaint is having to wait until October to get my hands on these. I especially like that apparently they’re going with a plain base — the one thing I don’t like about buying CMGs is the ugly-assed, stat-filled bases most of them are saddled with. The World of Warcraft CMG is also going to have plain bases that fit into larger stat-filled holders.
The Monsterpocalypse game is apparently divided into different factions attempting to conquer the world/wreak havoc,
The Planet Eaters
The Martian Menace
The Lords of Cthul – the inevitable Lovecraftian component. Someone needs to craft a version of Godwin’s Law along the lines of Lovecraft’s Law – given any group of fanboys, game company, comic, etc., the probability of someone swiping from Lovecraft approaches one.
Privateer Press hasn’t bothered to update its Monsterpocalypse website, but it was showing off its kaiju collectible miniatures line at Toyfair. This photo was taken by the good folks at Action-Figure.Com. They’ve got an entire gallery of photos of the miniatures here.
