Second Thunder Ltd. is running a Kickstarter campaign for Open Combat, their new miniatures skirmish rules set. The game is set for pre-gunpowder historical or fantasy settings. The game doesn’t have any specific miniatures set for it, so you can use whatever figures you have around. The game is designed to be played on just a 2′ square, so it’s something you can set up and play just about anywhere.
The campaign will be up for another 22 days.
From the campaign:
Open Combat is a tabletop miniature wargame suitable for any pre-gunpowder historical period or fantasy setting.
You can guide the ragtag remains of a Roman expeditionary force through barbarian territory, become a Saxon lord with his retinue as they face off against a local rival, or chart the story of a group of adventurers fighting for fortune and glory in a goblin-infested wilderness. It could be anything you have a mind to play.
Unlike many miniature games, Open Combat gives you the tools to ‘stat’ up your models in any way you choose.
Use any miniatures & terrain you have
Only a small area required (24″x24″)
Suitable for pre-gunpowder historical periods and fantasy settings
Customise the characteristics of your fighters, ‘stat’ them any way you like.
Fast setup and play time (30-40mins)
Open Combat puts you in command of a warband of fighters led by their charismatic (or frightening) leader as they match themselves against their foes. Who the combatants are and what they are fighting about is down to you, your miniature collection and what you have the itch to play.
