Other miniatures had been unlocked those final hours and the campaign finishes today.
Most of the people fear the final result since they have financed a project, not a preorder on kickstarter.
I guess SteamForged Games mostly listened to the requests in the comment section and are revising everything.
A lot of work for them to do yet !

But many factors remain unknowns :
- the dice rate (the demo aren't convincing people to miss everytime)
- the design of the cards and tiles (retro pack = total 0 info)
- the different character skills & abilities
- the weapon ranges and different effects
- the number of scenarios
- the fear to be limited for each scenario (2, 3 or 4 players maximum ?)

I do not think they will od it in a year, they need more time to achieve this.
Will see.
Nice campaign anyway, I see the game only as a giant tool box for my own sinister purposes.

SteamForged games offered us an alternative Claire's miniature (the social goal).
They also purposed the crows and giant moth add-on.
Chief Irons has been unlocked.
Next target for the last 24 hours William Birkin, Leon with the modified magnum, Claire with the grenade launcher, Ada with the bow gun and Chris Redfield and his magnum.

Are we the only ones that have played RE:2? :(
I'm not one for the board game, but the game on Playstation was awesome.
I fear it !
I don't really care about the boardgame in fact !
SFG are doing a game but the rules are not finished yet.
However, as far as I can see, a cooperative boardgame is not my cup of tea.
They also totally missed the exploration phase of the unknow ruled by a game master, step by step, door after door with a terrible stress : what's beyond that door ?
The quintessence of a survival horror : Exploration of unknown locations !
Where do I go ? It is the escape way or a mortal dead end full of zombies ?
More, they didn't succeeded in retrieving the soul of Resident Evil 2 : zombie hordes !
They have based the rules on avoiding : it was the first episode, not the seocnd and third which were action oriented on a gore & sinister scenario of survival.

So to me it will be directly 3D scenery, a new game system based on 90% the box offers + a GM easy to integrate and to handle the monsters behaviour, tension deck, maps & scenarios, event triggers etc.
No way to play it as a cooperative boring stuff : NO WAY !

My sewer system will be soon achieved, the laboratory and factory are done with DF Sci fi sets + modern furniture, I could find modular tiles of modern streets and a kit of destroyed cars from mantic + everything I have ... mmmnow only the RPD to do now ... the last 3D scenery !
Will check what I can do with heroic fantasy DF's sets for some areas.

fwiw, Their previous game, Dark Souls, had mixed reviews on BGG.

Also, the Firestorm KS has 180 mini's for $100, if you're just looking for generic sf horror mini's.
Firestorm or Fireteam?

They added a 3d doors pack (you can open it) and also another about some 3D scenery.
Same thing here : I'll use the computers from DF sci fi sets furniture.
