<whoop! whoop! whoop!>
You know what that sound means. It's the Giant Robot Alert and that's exactly what we have here. Bot War is a new sci-fi skirmish game of giant robots clashing on Earth. The figures have been around for a little bit, but it's time to go into full production for Traders Galaxy and get a full resin line of figures and the game going. The project is up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
My name is Anthony and I am the owner of a one person Australian company called Traders Galaxy. I am also the owner of Bot War Miniature Game. Both company and game have come from humble beginnings and for the most part have been built with sweat (and sometimes blood! :)) in my home garage over the last 2 years.
It's true that Bot War already has a passionate following of awesome gamers and hobbyists. Previous versions of the game have sold pretty well across the world. Bot War Second Edition, released a year ago, was my first "boxed" game that was financed only by customer preorders and my personal money. Because of limited funds at the time, there were many things I wanted to add, but just couldn't.
So this year I feel its time to get everything in the game that I wanted to before. And at the same time, release a bunch of awesome new miniatures in resin. Previously, almost all Bot War models were spin cast metal. However, this year I have already started to release my first resin miniatures. Essentially this means that although this is my first Kickstarter, I already have everything in place from 2 years of selling Bot War miniatures and products. This includes multiple established contractors in manufacturing as well as, artists and sculptors. Furthermore, I have deliberately limited the number of backers to what I am easily able to deliver, and like all good Kickstarters, hope to deliver ahead of the set date.
All of the Starter Set miniature sculpts and artwork are already completed, as are all of the stretch goal miniatures. The upgraded rules are also written and only require design layout for printing. Its just a matter of hitting the production go button.
The campaign's around halfway funded with 28 days left to go.
