I was always a fan of the Warhammer in the classic game myself. The Marauder was more of a mobile mech with some good long range firepower, whereas the Warhammer has a pretty diverse armament.

Hunchback, Rifleman and Archer were my favs. That Autocannon 20 on a medium mech was a really nice glass cannon, maybe the first one!

They showed the KS campaign video. Very nice. The hype is most definitely real. All concept art shown, but looking good so far. The interview will be posted online later.

The thing funded in under an hour and is still trucking along. I suspect it'll reach Stage 2 by tomorrow.

Would love to see digital add-ons like extra copies of the game for gifting. One can hope! But if not, I'll just do that when it launches.

The goal was a bit easier when the 2x 10k packages got sold within 3hrs.

The way I read it, they started at $250K (self funded to stage 1) so the real "backer" funding is $750K (added to the stage 1 amount to get the $1Mill needed for stage 2). they self funded the first stage but the backers are adding some extras to stage 1 then stage 2 is $1Million.

I can't find a link just yet to the Kickstarter page video, but it's a pretty good video for explaining the roadmap at this time.

$275 is a lot to be a backer, but damn that flight jacket is nice!
