From the campaign:

Across the decaying husk of a once vibrant world the battle rages. Desperate survivors strive to scavenge an existence from the hellish ruins that surround them. Battle-wagons constructed from scrap, spare-parts and a prayer to the savage gods go to war against aliens, demons and power-mad mutants!

Sulphur is an exhilarating game of futuristic table-top combat using 32mm vehicles and miniatures where players can design their own vehicles and match their forces to suit their own style of fighting. Challenge your opponents, create a force to exploit their weaknesses and be ready to exact revenge when they find yours first!

All models in this kickstarter will be hand cast in a fine detail Urethane resin.

I was born at a very young age. I plan on living forever. So far, so good.
  • Its – BORDERLANDS! – the miniatures game….clearly what they are basing the bulk of the models off of. I know the interwebs complain about how companies like GW enforce their IP, but come on people – be original, don’t take someone’s IP and rip it off for profit.

      GW is primarily based on SCI-FI memes and LOTR.. so I don’t really see where you’re coming from.

      I didn’t think Borderlands.. I thought Gorkamorka.. which led me to think Mad Max… which is probably what this is closest to out of anything.
      DISCLAIMER: I may not have associated it with Borderlands because I played it the day it launched and beat it after like a day or two.. and haven’t even thought of playing it since.. so I honestly don’t remember too much about it.

    Yes, because no post-apoc setting ever apes material from other post-apoc settings…

    Borderlands? Nonesense! There aren’t even any pyromaniac midgets! (yet?)

    Whatever though – I’m very selfish with my views on IP infringement in miniatures; if a company wants to ‘take inspiration’ from some cool thing to make a cool mini, I’m all for it! It’s only when people copy other minis that I get bored.

    The main thing that gets me interested in this is the buggies and quads… I’ve wanted better looking small fast vehicles like that for my Orks since the other vehicle kits for greenskins got an update.

    It reminds me of Dark Age.. and a whole mess of other things as someone pointed out.. but it does have a lot of character and things to like.

    You’ve got to look at the price a bit too.. it’s not horrible (except for exchange rate problems) but it’s also not amazing enough to buy over an Urban War Junker Dune Raider.. which can be found for about $20. If I were getting into this game just to play this game.. I would say the price is probably about fair but if I were just buying in for bits, I am at a weak maybe.

    I don’t think there are enough pledge levels…

    • The risks and challenges bit is funny.

      “Too successful? Can this happen? Well if this does happen we are putting plans in place to increase productivity in casting, packing and shipping. We can already handle large quantities and don’t see any issues with this project. More funds will result in more employed staff, which will in turn increase productivity.
      Waiting times. If we hit 40k we expect to ship everything by March 2014. Any figure over the initial target but under that 40k total will shave time off the delivery dates. The longest time requirement for production is the 3D printing. the kind we are utilising is very very high detail, but its slow, which is why we have already started printing the starter pack.”

      The figures look good this time around but that is not really the issue is it. A lot of available pledges are set to unlock at much higher goals than the funding goal yet you are able to pledge for them now. That is really setting potential backers up for a wait and see stance before pledging. The campaign is a mess with tons of addons and locked stuff set up as pledges.

      They really need to clean it up and clarify what happens if they don’t reach the goals they are counting on for some of those pledges that are already available. I hope they do because there is definitely some good looking stuff to be had.
