Maelstrom's Edge Kickstarter

The Kickstarter date has been announced as Friday, 4/24.  I'm pretty excited by this.  Partly I'm excited because these guys...

...will make perfect Tau Gue'vesa models.  I'm never really been happy with using slightly converted Astra Militarum dudes.  These guys will work with just a head swap and maybe a Fire Warrior should pad on the one shoulder.  The should pads they come with look almost exactly like the pads on the smaller arm of the Fire Warriors.  The drones will be nice to use as Gue'vesa Gun Drones.

The other Faction is also looking pretty sweet...

The intention is to have a total of 6 units available per faction at the end of the Kickstarter.  The above pics show 3 each, so half are yet to be unlocked.  Below is some artwork from the Maelstrom's Edge website.  I'm particularly interested in the bulkier of the two robots.  This is supposed to be entirely plastic, so I'm expecting some nice poseability.  This should hopefully be perfect for a Gue'vesa Broadside or Crisis Suit, depending on the size.  There are more pics on their site.  I don't want to steal all the thunder.
