El Kickstarter sigue creciendo, quedan 8 días para que finalice y ya han sacado otra meta más en esta ocasión 2 MVP más uno para equipo feminino de la Corporation y otro para los Z`zor. En estas actualizaciones se ven los tableros de juego Premium, las piezas intercambiables para personalizar el campo según el equipo que juguemos e incluso un vídeo de Ronnie Renton. Además hay unas cuantas sorpresas para la siguiente metea.


One word: pitches!

Both of these pitches have been significantly upgraded from the initial prototypes in response to your feedback and both are available at a special reduced Kickstarter prices that will never-be-seen-again.

Have at it! >:D

Co-prosperity Park – Intergalactic Sports Arena

Co-prosperity Park is a floating arena in the centre of the Diare district, a multi-trillion credit venue that has hosted such major-league finals as SlamBall IV and GloryBall 8. The stadium is in a constant state of noise, both from the cheers of the fans, shouting from the players and never-ending chatter from the vid-screens and advertising bots.

Get the full DreadBall Experience and play on a real neodurium (well, high-quality Acrylic!) pitch!
This premium game board breaks down into easy to store components and features a detachable rush track, score counter, sin bin, subs bench and Strike zones – it’ll even fit in the Mantic Battle Foam Bag!

Either use it to replace your game board or add it to your pledge as a complete second pitch!

Quadrant Zero Stadium

An older arena situated in the outer reaches, the Quadrant Zero Stadium is a former Enforcer base that has since been sold on to ZenaCorps, a merchant conglomerate with reported links to space piracy and smuggling. Quadrant Zero is in a severe state of disrepair and it’s reported every cycle that its license to hold DreadBall tournaments is openly under threat from Digby. 

Customise your pitch to the arena you want to play in!

This high quality MDF pitch can be painted so it looks the way you want it to – want to play on an ice world? Spray it white. Want a steely grey arena? Well you can do that too!

This kit can be used as a complete second game board and comes complete with removable rush track, score track, sin bins and subs bench. It breaks down into multiple pieces so that it can be carried around safely and even fits into the Battle Foam bag!

What else ya got?

Well, you can’t get playing a second game without cards so we’ve made the deck of 54 available in the extras*! You can also pick up a RefBot, counters and a Ball as well!

Note that the separate packs of cards have to be printed according to demand and will ship with the second package in Q2 2013.

We’re giving the main page a bit of a tidy up over the weekend and we have plenty of exciting goodies to look forwards to!


WOW – amazing stuff guys, we’ve broken our previous Kings of War Kickstarter total with 9 days to go! That means that Coach Renton is now included in Jack and Striker!

We’re going to keep working on finishing Seasons 1 and 2 over the next couple of stretches (Cheerleaders, prone figures, one or two new MVPs and alternate sculpts have all been suggested), starting with these…

$370,000 –Female Corporation and Z’zor Season 2 Keepers

Becoming a Keeper takes years of physical and mental conditioning. Corporations tend to invest in two to three personal coaches to train a single Keeper and often draft in promising new recruits from the army because of their experience with intense training and heavy exertion.

Z’zor Keepers are surgically altered Guards who have demonstrated particular resilience on the field of play. They have a scoop-like claw grafted in place of one of their pincers and hardened armour plates are layered over the previous exo-skeleton to make these beasts even more imposing.

Keepers are upgrades to Guards earned through experience over a league and you can have as many Keepers as you can have Guards. If we pass this goal we will be able to fundtwo different Season 2 Keeper sculpts – one for the female Corporation and one for the Z’zor – and put them together as a Buy One Get One Free bundle for just $8!

Note that as they are a team of Strikers the Judwan do not have a Keeper. The Robots we’re less sure on but we think they could be a team of Jacks.

Thanks guys!


When he’s not busy prancing around in a cheerleader outfit, Ronnie talks non-stop about DreadBall and how great it is. John-luc Haywood managed to get a camera in front of him for one of his rambles…

There are a couple of important points Ronnie has touched on there:

1) Extra packs of cards are available in the extras!

2) Acrylic upgrade packs for your pitches are now available as an add-on the front page including upgraded hex shaped Acrylic Counters!

These packs are fully interchangeable with the Quadrant Zero MDF gaming pitch or the premium Co-prosperity Park Arena - use them to “brand” your pitch in support of your team!

3) Ok, Ronnie might not have mentioned dice but we can confirm that they will be etched and not printed >:D

Also, we had some questions about the quality of the T-shirts so designer Sam has asked Julian to model this Midgard Delvers t-shirt for us!

They are made in the same material as actual football shirts. Think we're all down for one too!

PS - Ronnie is over in Ireland today meeting up with the guys at Beasts of War. Shaping up to be an exciting weekend I can tell you!


Great stuff - that’s two brand new Keeper sculpts fully funded for the Female team and the Z’zor. Brilliant!

Both of these models are now available in the extras to upgrade your female and Z’zor teams with Keepers! We’ve bundled them together as Buy One Get One Free for just $8.

We’ve been listening to your feedback as what to do next and in an effort to finish off Season 1 and 2, we’re going to tackle the Forge Fathers…

$385,000 – Forge Father Alternate Sculpts

We’ve been inundated with requests for more variant sculpts and if we pass this stretch goal we’ll be able to fund three new alternate sculpts for the Forge Father Midgard Delvers – a Striker, a Jack and a Guard. Sculpting these alternate models is like funding a whole new team, so it’s a big undertaking and one we’re sure you’ll help us with!

To say thank you we will upgrade the four Forge Father players from the Full Roster ($250,000) Stretch Goal to these new sculpts* meaning you'll get more variety in your set!

But that’s not all - DreadBall is a bloody and violent game and big models on the board sometimes get in the way of play when they’ve been knocked over. To help with this, we’ll also sculpt a “Prone” counter to denote knocked over models at the same time and include one free at Striker! – at the very least it’ll protect your paint jobs!

That’s one big upgrade for the Forge Father team, but that’s not all we’ve got… you asked for him, so here he is!

$400,000 – Yurik “Painmaster” Yurikson, Forge Father Guard MVP

Yurik Yurikson is notoriously difficult to interview. He doesn't like to talk about how he got into DreadBall, or how he found himself slumming it as a Free Agent for almost a decade before rejoining the Midgard Delvers, or how he once took down three opposing guards with a single Slam. In fact, all Yurik wants to talk about is how much he hates “Brickbat” Vognar, long-serving guard with the Manglers.

The common belief is that it all stems back to a head injury he receives courtesy of the Orc Guard back at SlamBall IV. One thing's for sure, that's the last time he spoke to a journalist without spewing bile about the “worthless son of a Grogun” who “needs to be taught a lesson in pain” and who “won't be so damned cocky with a...” ...well, we can't print the rest of that quote, but I think we all remember it. Yurik's tirades have become legendary, to the point where there's a small legion of fans who watch him play just so they can see what he says before and after the game...

This would be another amazing milestone number achieved and we’ll be able to fundYurik “Painmaster” Yurikson – a Forge Father Guard MVP. Often described as the “Iron Ancestor of the DreadBall pitch,” Yurik suits up in full DreadBall armour in anticipation of a chance encounter with “Brickbat” Vognar.

If we hit this goal, we’ll be able to sculpt Yurik and include him in Jack and Striker!, rounding out our 8 Season 2 MVPs!

Have at it guys, that's a big Forge Father upgrade and we've still got plenty of stuff to come - Cheerleaders and more alternate sculpts are around the corner and we've also seen Asterian Concepts (including a note from Roberto saying that the Asterian MVP is one "Sexy pointy-eared" lady.) We're looking forwards to that and Ultimate DreadBall!
