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.

Wow!!! Can you confirm the names of each faction? And can you give us a rundown of the game? Have you played it yet? Awesome!!!

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!
