Mantic Games have recently started their own Kickstarter project to help fund a wide range of new miniatures to include Werewolves and Orgres.
Kickstarter is a “funding platform for creative projects” acording to the website also known as crowd funding.
The basic premise of this is, if you see a project that you like, be it video game, book or in this case miniatures for table top gaming you pledge a sum of money that suits you usually anything from $1 up with different rewards offered by each individual project for various pledge levels, in the case of Mantic’s project here is just a few of their rewards.
Pledging $20 or more will get you an electronic copy of the new Kings of War rule book.
A pledge of $35 or more will get you a Kings of War Hardback Rulebook, Mini-rulebook and 10 Dice.
Get gaming with Soldier and choose from one of the following regiments:
Undead – 20 Skeletons with command, 20 Zombies, 20 Ghouls, 20 Revenants with Command
Orcs – 20 Ax with Command, 20 Greatax with Command
Dwarfs – 20 Ironclad with command, 20 Ironwatch with Command, 20 Shieldbreakers with Command
Elves – 20 Spearmen with command, 20 Bowmen with command, 20 Scouts with command.
These pledge levels continue right up to $5000+ which had a 2 pledge limit that has already been filled.
King + we’ll also give you a 1000 point Kings of War Human army, which will be released in 2013. Not only that but we’ll sculpt a hero in your likeness and name it in your honour (with a fantasy twist!), as well as include you in the development of the human army rules.
We will then fly you from New York (or equivalent) to Nottingham, UK where you can collect your army, visit the Mantic Studio and play a game of Kings of War with Ronnie.
Mantic’s kickstarter project is set to run for another 26 days and has already exceeded all their expectations.
