On the Lamb Games has done what you’ve all been waiting for. They’ve launched their Endless Fantasy Tactics Kickstarter campaign. Go check it out.

From the campaign:

Endless: Fantasy Tactics is a tactical miniatures game designed by On The Lamb Games. With a focus on boutique style miniatures and an art aesthetic harkening back to console RPGs of the 90s, you can build your own custom team of knights, wizards, and monsters. Equip them with items and pick their abilities. Fight it out in story scenarios, or recreations of your favorite games. A standard game takes about 20 to 30 minutes to play with 5-10 miniatures and uses a D6 pool-based system of gameplay.

    40mm? You lost me there. Another scale to build terrain in? Figures I cannot really use beside my others? No.

    The rules look ok, basic but solid RPG-like rules. But a very slim quickstart, more like a presentation of the basic ideas, so not much to go on and judge.

    Despite it’s absence in the lineup – it can be seen that these are ‘Rackham sized’.

    Nice of them to change “final” in the title…

    Looks pretty cool, but $90/$100 for 6 minis and some cards is largely expensive. I’ll pass and if it funds, ill take a look a it.

    • As we progress through the stretch goals we’re able to get more sculpts done and then add those to either the ‘Crystal Chests’ or reward tiers automatically. While at the moment its only 6 models, by the end it will likely be 50+ models at $90/$100.

      And remember, with Kickstarter you aren’t charged until the end (Nov. 11 @ 10pm EST). So you can back now and lock in an early bird level, and if by the end you aren’t happy you can easily cancel your pledge.

      This is the problem that small companies face. Companies like CMoN and Mantic create unrealistic expectations of what a kickstarter can be. The big companies have enough money that they can create a really low initial goal while still providing a fully realized initial product. Small companies can’t front that usually. Hence they have to go one of two routes. Here we have On The Lamb doing the route where they have a fairly low initial goal, but the cost to model ratio isn’t great to start. They rely on hitting stretch goals to make the overall package more attractive, but are pretty much guaranteed to at least get a basic product out the door. Then, on the other hand, you have the route Comfy Chair Games is doing now with their Dominion of the Gods campaign. You get a pretty nice model package for the cost, but the initial funding goal is high for a small indie company. It also makes stretch goals almost impossible to hit so IF they hit their initial target that’s pretty much all they’ll hit.

      I think the former model is a bit more realistic so I think OtL here is doing pretty well. It’s the larger companies that are making Kickstarter harder for the little guys. The irony being that Kickstarter was conceived so the little guys could compete with the bigger companies.
