This was the Mongoose/Victrix collaboration that was supposed to have come out earlier this year. I played a demo at Salute, and while it wasn't the best game I played, it seemed like a nice quick warband bash.

Given Mongoose's appalling track record, Victrix might have seen the light.

Mongoose posted on their own forums on Thursday November 12th that it is "in the hands of Victrix".

Yeah...

Mongoose do everything on the cheap. So their kickstarters take years to finalise, their products are over-priced, rules are usually shoddy and/or un-play tested, and they recycle stuff whenever they can.

Simple as that, really. Avoid like the plague.

Don't prevaricate on this Craig... tell it how you see it!

Yeah, well, my career in the diplomatic corp never really took off, and I have had the misfortune of Mongoose taking on a couple of projects I really, really liked - and doing a cr*p job.

Example - their Rogue Trooper Kickstarter is 26 months behind schedule and about 75% finished. We're not talking legions of models either - only about 30 sculpts.

Must admit I got a tad excited when I heard Victrix were on with 'Warriors of Antiquity'. After getting your heads up... I'll not be holding my breath!
