Cthulhu Wars Kickstarter arrived

My copy of the base game arrived this weekend, and I played a quick game with my 13 year old nephew.

I need to spend more time reading through the rules and pieces before I post a decent review, but ask your questions...

It's a monster game box. Twice as thick as Space Hulk. Not as big as the Ogre Designer's Edition. The miniatures are massive and numerous.

Re: Cthulhu Wars Kickstarter arrived

Played it once with my nephew who's only 12, so I just did a quick read of the rules. I will try to give a better rundown once I've had a chance to play it with an adult.
The four core GOOs are
Great Cthulhu (green)
Crawling Chaos (aka Nyarly) (blue)
King in Yellow - which is called "Yellow Sign" (guess which color minis are this faction?!)
Black Goat (aka Shub) (red)

There are a bunch of other factions/GOOs planned for expansions.

I was just looking at it on BGG and noticed some people painted their mini's (or not so mini's) and they look spectacular!
