Lots of lovely Bauhaus teasers from the Prodos Games Facebook page, It is really nice to see those involved, opening the doors to public opinion on the product. Prodos have released a few pictures of the redesigned Bauhaus main soldier (Hussars) with a number of helmet choices, which are to be voted on by fans/supporters. Even I - who normally remains quiet on things like Facebook - have cast my vote on helmet choices for the upcoming release. Below is a collection of the current Bauhaus concepts Prodos are looking at for the army as a whole.
Some fans have reservations concerning scaling ie the Vulkan battlesuit. In my opinion while noticeably smaller than the 2nd edition sculpt (I had two boxes back in the day), I think the new kits fits the theme of a 'modern' integration for today's miniature collector. While the likes of Privateer and in many ways GW thrive on big shoulder pad syndrome, I do not think it is something every company can pass off right now...I guess times have just changed and the novelty that is nostalgia may not (be enough?) translate well into a much more modern and larger wargaming community.
It is still very early days for this Kickstarter project, with 59 days left to run, we may well see much more new and unique product as the weeks roll by; as it stands; £20,000 + in one day is not bad going, however it remains to be seen whether the popularity of brand and Kickstarter tiers will carry the funding over and beyond the £35,000 primary goal.
