The Battle for Alabaster begins! If you love Studio McVey’s beautiful figs, here’s your chance to get them at a great discount and support Mike’s baby at the same time!

Sedition Wars: Battle for Alabaster is a fast paced tactical miniatures game for two players. Survival horror at its finest, game play is fast and and bloody – creating urgency and claustrophobic terror, as the Vanguard fight for their lives against an unrelenting Strain.
Battle for Alabaster is a survival horror themed tactical science fiction miniatures game from Studio McVey. Pitting the stalwart Vanguard and the horrific Strain against each another in a miniatures board-game for 2 players, Sedition Wars: Battle for Alabaster is exciting and easy to learn and calls to miniature enthusiasts, hobbyists and gamers everywhere.

Mike McVey is something of a legend in the miniatures industry, leaving his mark on tons of GW products as well as launching Warmachine at Privateer Press.  If you like him as much as we do, check it out here: Sedition Wars Kickstarter

    Not got the spare cash to be a supporter for this yet (zombicide ate that cash), so can’t ask on the Kickstarter page, so will ask here on the off chance. Are the figures in the box metal casts? Obviously the ones in all the photo’s are the Studio McVey studio figures and therefore the original resins, which we won’t be getting in the box. Just wondering if they’ve been moved to plastic with 50 per box…

      Same here, I backed zombicide too nd don’t have te budget right now. I don’t feel too bad as the extras at the $100 level aren’t as generous as zombicide.

      Also, the kickstarter page says the figures are in plastic.

        They aren’t as generous yet, lets wait and see on the stretch goals 🙂

        Also, the kickstarter page says the
        figures are in plastic.

        So it does! Took me a while to find it though. I’ll be interested in seeing how well the figures handle the transition to plastic. I’d hate to see much of a softening in the detail work.

    Holy crap. I think I am going to have launch a Kickstarter for my Porsche Game project. LOL.

    sigh
    Although I really wish the McVeys all the best for this enterprise, I won’t back this project – not because it doesn’t sound worthwhile (it does), or the sculpts are bad (they are really good)… but because I am so tired of the mutant/slimy/space-zombies as antagonist. Been there, done that… read about them, played video-games, played tabletop games…

    I would really throw my money at them (and I really think that the prices are more than justified for the amount of material you get) if they would have come up with something less cliché and more original.

    I will file Sedition Wars under “missed chance to be creative”

    @cyberwolf1971:

    the battle for alabasta is only the first stage of the game. they have already created a back story and a universe that is very different to the usual Gothic Si-fi games like 40K, and the tec and advancement feels more like an Iain M Banks novel than your run of the mill fantasy future. even the way the zombie/mutant bad guys are not that simple. they are nanotec with a collective AI not a virus. and this nanotec can affect non living matter as well. that all seems quite creative to me. and once the firebrand are introduced to the mix with there drones, clones, and GM brothers, the universe will really start to expand. the limited amount of fluff that has been produced has been great, with lots of directions the story can go in. as well as the start of a intriguing political and historical back story.

    you have judged to soon.

    also there is nothing wrong with a cliche here and there. look at zombieside, you cannot get more cliche than that, and people loved it. and empires in space, or civil war, or murder mystery, are all cliches. its how you tell, adapt and develop them in a new iterating format and direction that show creativity. and sedation wars is doing just that. defiantly worth backing in my opinion.
