Chaps, we have made some tweaks to the pledge levels, following many requests from you all!

1. Venus Bkluegenes is now a free model to Kapitan level pledges as well!
2. If we unlock the Lazooka teams, Kapitans will receive one team free, Majors wil receive two teams free.
3. Also, if the Lazookas are unlocked, we will be sending a Sister Sledge model to every backer of Sergeant level or higher!
4. Snipers are still free to Kapitans and Majors.
5. We have added the Hammerfire Pillboxes as a stretch goal and, iof achieved, a Pillbox will be sent free to every backer of Leutnant level and higher.

Also, there is an update coming later today that should find favour with a great many of you!

Yes!

Again, Mongoose has shown that they actually listen and respond to their followers and gamers.

And this time, it is in an extremely positive way.

Thanks Mongoose and Matt.

The latest news...

We have just updated the Rogue Trooper rulebook and have added a whole new chapter! During the Judge Dredd Kickstarter, we became aware that more than a few of you were pretty much intending to refight the Apocalypse War - it was pretty obvious by the number of Sov Judges, Citi-Def and Mega-City One's finest you were asking for!

We have been toying with the idea of making this kind of epic fight 'official,' and finally broke down today and added the ideas we have been working on - you can now fight the Apocalypse War using the Rogue Trooper miniatures game, as we have added Mega-City One and East Meg force lists! For a truly bizarre game, you might even consider fighting Mega-City One Judges vs. Norts, or East Meg Judges vs. Southers!

We have also added new rules on city fighting, intended to reflect how truly vicious this kind of warfare is. Perfect for the Apocalypse War but, of course, there is plenty of fighting in built up areas of Nu-Earth as well, so feel free to use those rules for Nort vs. Souther confrontations too!

Now, we predict that the first response to the MC-1 force lists will be 'where are the rules for Med-Judges/Anderson/Sky Surfing Chimps?' (closely followed by 'where are the Sov Rad Sweepers?...').

As with the rest of the rules revolving aroudn this Kickstarter, we want to give you chaps enough to play with (you already have the rules to match Holocaust Judges against Sentenoids, which can only ever be an interesting match up!), and then continue to add and tweak following your comments and suggestions. So, if there is much interest shown in this side of the game, more will be added.

As to the second response, well, perhaps we will look at another Kickstarter in the future for Rad Sweepers, as that is a BIG model!

If anyone is looking to get into the Apocalypse War in any half-serious way, we have also added a small selection of Judge Dredd sets to this Kickstarter which you would be welcome to add and combine with the Rogue Trooper sets on offer.

It has occured to us that, maybe next year, we should perhaps look at doing some sort of combined '2000AD miniatures game' that will feature both skirmish and battle level gaming, and cover both Rogue Trooper and Judge Dredd (and, who knows, maybe some other comic strips as well!). However, that is just an idea scribbled on the back of an envelope at the moment, and we need to get the individual components of such a project sorted first.

So, you have our open invitation to come on in and get involved with some tasty 2000AD gaming, and let us know what changes and/or additions you would like to see, to the skirmish rules and those covering battles, to Judge Dredd and Rogue Trooper.

One way or another, the future looks bright for 2000AD miniatures gaming!

Nicely done, Matt. Very tasty, very tempting.

I haven't pledged yet (keeping my powder dry in the hope some cash turns up in the next week-or-so), but some of the drivel on the backers-only comments section on the Kickstarter is starting to make it hard to hold off... I particularly like the "make a completely different game!" ones: pledge for the game being made, or sod off.

So if I want one set + 3 of the Rogue Trooper minis what is the level I need to pledge at? Do I need to got to L100? Or can you combine lower level ones?

I mean, I'm interested in the star of the show ... and I have to admit 3 Lawmasters at that price is difficult to pass up!

So, that's my question! Thanks!

We have just uploaded a new revision of the Rogue Trooper rulebook. As always, you can grab it from here;

http://www.mongoosepublishing.com/pdf/rtrooper.pdf

Many thanks to all of you who mailed in or posted suggestions and changes - we have incorporated a lot of those into the rulebook, making the game run smoother and giving you more options.

In addition, we have add two whole new chapters.

Battlefields of Nu-Earth introduces several new terrain types unique to the war zones Rogue fought across, bringing new hazards and tactical opportunities to contend with.

Second, we have added Skirmishes on Nu-Earth, providing all the rules you need to combine Rogue Trooper forces with the Judge Dredd miniatures game, allowing you to build campaign forces and new heroes! We know there are a great manyof you who have been waiting for this chapter!

This means you can now combine the two games, across both Mega-City One and Nu-Earth, to play games where a small, elite force is sent on dangerous missions that may tilt the balance of the whole war, before launching a major assault on enemy lines that could win it!

There is still a lot for us to do on this rulebook, but we believe it is now a nice, tight system which wil have some great models for it, offering a gateway into more 2000AD gaming goodness for years to come!

Wow i`m shocked and happy to see that you have added the rules for smaller games using the new JD System. Thats a nice add on to the rules. And one i`m happy with. I thought you done a good job with JD system, and was alittle let down on the RT Evo rules ( no shooting skill..!! ) so seening the JD rules you can use makes it feel more alive. And now Rogue feels like the main player again.

I also lke that new Sov droid...

I kinda missed out on the RT Kickstarter and I know you must be busy making and sending out models, but..
It took me quite a while to track down the rules, they aren;t on the front page or even in the drop down menus.
I really want to buy some RT models. Any ETA for when they'll appear on this site for sale?
Thanks and regrets that I didn't KS you (although I did KS the Dredd)

Expect to see RT models appear after the KS people have theirs, likely just before Christmas.
