Gangs of the Undercity

Posted in Kickstarter, The Witterings of Bloodied with tags , , , , , on 9 August 2020 by bloodied

We here at the Cult always love to draw attention to nifty looking projects, and if ‘cyberpunk fantasy gang fight wargame’ doesn’t sound nifty to you than I’m moderately confused as to why you are on this website. Currently entering its last week on Kickstarter, Gangs of the Undercity is a new IP tabletop wargame from the lovely people at Fragging Unicorn Games (full disclosure: the Cult’s own Allegory does freelance work for them), putting you in charge of either a pregenerated or custom built gang battling to survive and thrive in the crumbling undercity of Neo-Babylon. Think that sounds cool? Don’t just take my word for it, hope over to their Kickstarter page and look at the pitch video, as well as the preview pics of the beautifully sculpted models you’d be using. Go on, I’ll wait…







Looks cool, doesn’t it? Even cooler, the project funded on day one, so this is definitely going ahead, and stretch goals are adding all sorts of goodies for everyone, from new models and gangs, to a short story collection building on the setting (full disclosure again: Allegory has written one of the stories in the collection, and has a small roll in the Undercity audio drama that you can listen to here). Plus, with everything so far along, delivery is estimated for end of the year, so you won’t have to wait too long to get your hands on those awesome models and snazzy terrain. We here at the Cult are certainly looking forward to getting to play this beauty, and you can bet we’ll give you our thoughts when we do. In the mean time, you’ve got until 5:59am BST Sunday 16th of August to make your pledge and secure your slot in the battle for undercity supremacy.
