12 Elements of War sees a light

Sword & Board Games didn't fund their 12 Elements of War Kickstarter. But all is not lost.

From the announcement:

Hi All,

On the 22nd our Kickstarter ended unsuccessfully.

Instead of focusing on the negatives, let’s focus on the positives. George Edward Woodberry once said “Defeat is not the worst of failures. Not to have tried is the true failure”.

From out of the gloom comes a ray of light. I was contacted by a party from within the industry who wishes to remain anonymous regarding Twelve Elements of War. I am able to show you a snippet of what they had to say.

“We purchased the digital copy of the rulebook from your webstore and have been reading though it and playing an office campaign for the past two weeks. We find that it is simple to learn, we LOVED the lore and mixed race warbands, the game has great replay value and creates some very memorable gaming moments which we understand is what you were aiming to achieve. It’s very sad that Twelve Elements of War hasn't received the attention and funding that we believe it deserves. To that end, we would like to help you get your miniatures produced and available for sale.”

So, what does that mean for you, the gaming community? Well it means that you will be able to get your hands on the “First Fourteen” Twelve Elements of War Miniatures within months. PLUS, new and exciting miniatures as they are produced. It has to be made clear that our mysterious benefactors are not funding every single thing we have planned for Twelve Elements of War. They are helping us get a good range out there to support the game and hopefully, once this is done the game can support, fund and grow itself.

Some very exciting news to be sure. Looking forward to some fun times ahead.
