Ever since the dawn of work, there’s been varying levels of tension between bosses and workers. When that tension boils over, things can get really nasty. That’s just what’s going on in Broken Contract, the miniatures adventure game set in a not-too-distant future. There’s a Kickstarter campaign running for the game’s rule book running now.
Laundry’s getting cleaned, red beans and rice are in the pot for dinner, and I’m about to do some editing for the next issue of Ravage. In the meantime, he’s some of the shorter stories we found in the past couple days we wanted you to know about.
Included are: the next update from Manorhouse Workshop about their underground terrain, New preview art and a green from Broken Contract, New Preview of Virgil from Siren Miniatures, New Woodland Indians available from Wargames Factory, New 15mm Tanks from Brigade Models, a new Dark Treeman from Dark Art Studios, Finger and Toe releases new Crates terrain pdf., and Ludus Magnus Studio previews their final render for their Centaur Archer.
Broken Contract has a couple new test 3D render that they’re showing off for their upcoming box set that will be on Kickstarter next year. For those that’ve forgotten, Broken Contract is an upcoming miniatures board game set in a sci-fi western mining town where players play as either workers who just tipped over the brink into revolt, or the corporate security forces trying to get them to go back to work.
The two characters for this preview are both Breakers (workers in revolt). And honestly, if I saw a guy coming at me with a gas mask and a big chop saw, I’d let him go wherever he wanted. But that’s me.

Broken Contract has launched their Kickstarter campaign. You’ve seen the rules, now go pledge for the game.
From the campaign:
Broken Contract is a Sci-fi 32mm miniature board game for 2-8 players. Broken Contract is a game of action and adventure in a dystopian future. When a crew of indentured miners contracted to an interplanetary mega corporation get pushed to the edge, they decide to lash out against the hired security forces that stand between them and freedom!
Broken Contract, a new sci-fi/western miniatures game, has posted up their Alpha Rules set on their website for you to check out.
Their Kickstarter will be beginning on Monday.
From them to you:
This is the Alpha set of the Broken Contract rules. As an Alpha rule set it is expected that there will be inconsistencies, typos, mistakes, and the like. I’m releasing it to the world so you can find all of those so they can be fixed. I think I’ve raised enough awareness about the game that I should be able to get some solid feedback. With the Kickstarter looming in 5 days it seemed the perfect time to capitalize on the excitement and urgency so here it is. I strongly encourage everyone to use the comments section or to join the conversation on boardgamegeek. Thanks and enjoy!
