I've supported one Kickstarter campaign in the past, 15mm sci-fi/neo British from Armies Army, and the experience was a positive one. A week or two ago I came across another 15mm sci-fi Kickstarter campaign from Darkest Star Games for some vehicles (tanks, light armor, and APCs), and while really liking the look of the Scorpion light armored vehicle, decided that I didn't have a use for such a vehicle with the current projects, so did not commit to be a backer at that time. This evening, on The Miniatures Page, tsofian had posted about this campaign, and with the appropriate arm twisting (really, none at all) I decided to back the campaign at a level that would yield me a vehicle of my choice. Kickstarter seems to be a decent way to add to existing product lines or create a unique line, without too much commitment from the various backers. In this case Darkest Star wanted to move into 15mm after doing a line of 6mm sci-fi.
If you have any interest in backing this campaign, they have already achieved the basic goal, and are moving towards hitting their stretch goals. Jump onboard today!
