WHAT’S THE CAMPAIGN?

We hope to fund a brand new 7TV boxed set - 7TV:Apocalypse - to expand our cinematic skirmish rules into the post-apocalyptic (PA) genre. This is supported with over a hundred 28mm miniatures.

Crooked Dice already publish 7TV - wargaming in the world of cult tv. These fun and flexible skirmish rules allow you to recreate any type of cinematic action on the tabletop. For the past eighteen months, we have been working on expanding 7TV into other settings - and the first is the wide-ranging post-apocalyptic genre!

NOW ADD MINIATURES...

As the scope of 7TV:Apocalyspe is so broad, miniatures are not included in the boxed set. However, we are supporting the campaign with over one hundred 28mm post-apocalyptic miniatures.

These have been brought to life by the sculpting talents of Ernst Veingart, Andrew May, Iain Colwell, Jens Beckmann, Shane Hoyle, Mark Evans, Pedro Navarro, George Fairlamb, Paul Smith, Ian Mountain, Giacomo Pantalone, Kev White, Paolo Fabiani, Phil Page, Michael Anderson, John Pickford and Steve McGuire. 

Painting for display models is from the beautiful brushwork of Simon Bradley, Andrew Taylor, Mystic Spirals, Mik Hollands and Jon Atter. 

All miniatures are supplied unpainted.

WHAT IS 7TV:APOCALYPSE?
7TV: Apocalypse is a standalone ruleset that uses the existing 7TV skirmish system. This boxed set includes new post-apocalyptic themed profile cards, gear and mutation decks and newly designed status tokens. The box also includes brand new vehicle combat rules to allow you to battle across the wasteland in your souped-up wrecks!

So pick your apocalypse...

The rules allow play in ANY genre of apocalyptic setting you wish. 

  • You can chase your enemies across a desert with giant ants from the atomic age.
  • Or try to outrun mohican-sporting marauders for the last drops of guzzoline.
  • Or maybe you want to face the zombie hordes in any number of undead holocausts from the black and white classics to the modern award-winning franchises they have spawned?
  • You can fight for the very souls of mankind as angels or demons on Judgement Day.
  • Or escape a bio-engineered nemesis in a virus-ravaged city. 
  • Perhaps you have imagined some future dystopia ruled by the machines, simians or alien overlords – and want to break the chains of their oppressive regime?

All this and more is possible with 7TV:Apocalypse, providing hours of play across many genres.

7TV: Apocalypse uses the same core rules as 7TV, but this set is standalone, so you don't need core 7TV to be able to play.

SLICK, SIMPLE CINEMATIC SKIRMISH

You can build a cast and battle against your enemies across toxic wastelands, abandoned cities and dystopian futurescapes – in fact anywhere you like!

There are over 120 post-apocalyptic themed profile cards to pick from - survivors, mutants, drivers, cultists, killer cyborgs, angels and demons, alien invaders and giant radioactive monsters!

The rules are setting (and miniature) agnostic - with profiles inspired by classic archetypes from the small and silver screen. So if you have favourite models you have never been able to play with, or simply wanted to recreate your favourite movie or tv show on the tabletop - well then this is the game for you!

Use your star qualities, special effects, gear and mutations to get your mission accomplished before the countdown ends and the episode is over. You can find out more and download a FREE copy of the core 7TV rules here.

... AND VEHICLE COMBAT TOO!

No post-apocalyptic game would be complete without the opportunity to race and clash against rival gangs across the wastelands!

So 7TV:Apocalypse also includes a new vehicle combat system allowing players to include specialist drivers and bikes, buggies, racers, trucks and big rig vehicles into their casts. 

Vehicles can be upgraded with over 36 different 'mods' - to try and give you the edge over your opponents. So add super-wide wheels, a hood ornament or rockets to your rust buckets and get set for a white line nightmare!

Any item marked with a CAST CHOICE sticker may be chosen as one of your cast choices for DEAD SET (2 choices), END OF DAYS (5 choices) or WASTELAND (10 choices) backers. 

There are ten initial casts to choose from and there are several stretch goals to unlock more choices.

You can add additional casts to your pledge by increasing your pledge by £20 OR by choosing a higher pledge level to give yourself more choice options.

There are loads more stretch goals throughout the campaign. These will unlock more miniatures, vehicles and terrain. There are a mix of FREE rewards and PAID ADD-ONS and even more CAST CHOICES too.

If you have pledged for ALL-IN or TICKET TO RIDE all the rewards below are added automatically added to your pledge.

Extra rewards can be purchased by all backers and further paid add-ons may be unlocked throughout the campaign. If you have pledged for ALL-IN or TICKET TO RIDE all the rewards below are added automatically added to your pledge.

Any CASTS unlocked can be included as a cast choice in Dead Set, End of Days and Wasteland pledges as well as purchased separately.

Just increase your pledge to cover your pledge level and the value of your add-ons and select your options once the Kickstarter ends when we send out the Pledge Manager details.

You can also choose any of these options from the existing Crooked Dice back catalogue - with some items discounted for backers.

SO WHO ARE CROOKED DICE?

Crooked Dice Game Design Studio has been part of the wargaming hobby since 2010. We specialise in wargames rules and 28mm miniatures inspired by the many and varied iconic worlds of cult television and film. We have a range of over 350 miniatures and an extensive selection of resin terrain and vehicles.

WHY KICKSTARTER?

Kickstarter has been chosen as a way to help fund production of this new set of rules and miniatures. Successful funding via Kickstarter will be the quickest way to deliver our products than if we used our traditional release schedule. So simply more minis, much faster! Plus the reach of Kickstarter is huge, and a community in itself, so we hope it will introduce Crooked Dice to a whole new audience.

FUNDING TARGET

We have set our initial funding target at £10,000 which will cover production costs for the boxed set and components.

SHIPPING

As a long standing mail order business with a successful web store, we ship packages all over the world, every day. So you can be rest assured that your parcels are in good hands and will reach you safely.

The shipping will be added AFTER the Kickstarter, so is not included in your pledge. Shipping cost will be calculated by weight and size of your pledge and with the variables available in campaign is difficult to be exact. However, we try and only charge a flat rate, but lead is heavy and books are bulky!

Please note that the 7TV:Apocalypse Boxed Set is over 1 KG and counts as a small parcel. This may incur extra additional postage costs. Current standard shipping prices for JUST the box are currently £3 UK, £10 to Europe and £15 for Rest of the World.

So estimated costs for box and miniatures are:

UK: £4 to £8

European Union: From £10 to £20

Rest of World (including Canada and USA): From £15 to £20

Australia & New Zealand: £15 to £30

DELIVERY BEFORE BREXIT

Fulfilment is scheduled for February and March 2019 BEFORE the UK Brexit deadline. We don't want EU customers to be impacted by any delays or unknown costs in customs, so we are putting additional resources in place to ensure EU parcels are shipped before 29th March 2018. If you have any concerns do not hesitate to contact me directly.

Risks and challenges

Crooked Dice is a successful manufacturer of miniatures and rules, so we have years of experience of designing and producing models and working with print suppliers.

All core pledge models have been mastered, as have the majority of stretch goal miniatures. So as soon as the funds are in, moulds can be put into production.

Casting of all pewter figures will be completed by Griffin Moulds. Any resin production will be done by MDP. Both companies are renowned for the high quality and ability to deliver on schedule and have strong and established working relationships with Crooked Dice.

The boxed rules have all been play tested and content has been laid out. We are just awaiting pictures of the final painted miniatures to drop into final artwork. Our print partners have worked with us on all our second edition 7TV projects and have proven reliable and dedicated to quality and delivery.

In the case of any delays outside our control - please be assured that your money is in safe and professional hands, and you will be updated regularly as to the situation.
