What is Relics?
Relics is our 28mm scale unit skirmish tabletop wargame. It’s a game of striking visuals as we take ever effort to ensure the term ‘cookie cutter’ can’t be applied to what we do!
The rules system has some key points that make the game interesting, fun and different. With exciting tension built into the activation sequence and the core dice mechanic makes use of doubles for successes taking the games dice mechanic probabilities away from the boring, predictable target based systems.
What is the Relics Reinforcements 2 project?
This project is being run by Tor Gaming with the aim to fund the productions of a new terrain piece (usable as objectives in our scenarios), exclusive model and the remaining profiles in the rulebook. If we do well, we will also create faction objective markers as well as game tokens.
If the project is successful enough, they will move onto previously unseen profiles for all four existing projects!
