Q-Workshop will be in charge of Armymals dice! 

Bonus content unlocked!

We have a lot unlocked but why stop now? The continous support in the last few days makes us hopeful about the final result. We propose a new challange for the 30k amount. If we will be able to get there we will introduce the XXL Animal Cards as an add-on.

  • Regular cards will be about 3,5 x 5,8 inch. 
  • XXL ones will be about 6,6 x 11 inch.

Armymals review by Undead Viking! (link)

All applicable stretch goals in every Armymals box!

Introduction

It’s a basic instinct engraved deeply in the DNA, a primal urge pulsating from the heart of the jungle - we are predators and we will not stop hunting until we fulfill our desires and needs. Congratulations on tracking down the Armymals, they are a worthy prey. 

The boardgame of Armymals is a fast and fun experience for 2-4 players. We wanted to keep things simple and dynamic so a single game should not take more than an hour. This is unless you decide to put two copies of the game together for the ultimate 5+ players battle with a Mechasquirrels Module. Our aim is to create an intuitive and accessible set of rules that still leaves space for decision-making and outplays. The game is a good fit for both a family tournament involving kids and a hardcore gaming-session with every player trying to squeeze the most out of the mechanics. All the action takes place on a colorful board with an army of puntastic animal commanders, paintable miniatures, tanks with rotatable turrets and a good laugh here and there.

We figured that the community of boardgames enthusiasts is getting older and that we are bringing to the world and then raising a new generation of players. Armymals with their cute, absorbing critters and intelligible rules could be a great way to introduce our kids to the magical world of entertainment without electricity.

Everything you have seen so far is already a part of the Armymals boardgame.

Armymals Gameplay Video by Titan Forge

Check out the rulebook for the prototype version of the game (Link to Rulebook). We used it for playtesting and presented it to reviewers. While the final version will have a bit more information provided this one covers the basics pretty well. Check it out for insight into the mechanics and a first impression if the game and gameplay suits you.
Our Rulebook has drawn some positive attention from an active boardgame reviewer. Check out the full article here (Link to Review).

The Print and Play version is now live (PnP link here). The rules can be found in the paragraph above. Give PnP a try and remember that your thoughts and ideas mean a lot to us - there is still time to fix or improve some elements of the game. Remember that the final product will have many more cards and gameplay possibilities.

All the avaliable pledges are explained in the pictures below.  If you are interested in making Armymals happen please support us by ordering your copy of the boardgame today. The more people decide to back us, the more exciting stuff we will be able to implement.

Support the Armymals by ordering one copy of the boardgame. You will receive all "what's in the box" content. Additionaly, depending on the success of this campaign, you will get the exclusive bonuses from every applicable stretch goal. This standard version of the game allows 2-4 players to clash. If you prefer 5+ people gameplay we strongly suggest the Sergeant Pledge.

Support the Armymals by ordering 2 copies of the boardgame. Each will contain all "what's in the box" materials. Depending on the success of this campaign, you will get the exclusive bonuses from every applicable stretch goal. Additionally, you will receive the Mechasquirrel Module. Apart from providing you with awesome Mechasquirrel miniatures, Mechasquirrel cards and more it allows to fully enjoy the game with 5-8 players. This requires using elements from both copies of the Armymals. Or you can just use one copy as a gift for someone and use the Mechasquirrel Module when you meet up. Good soldiers always plan ahead.

You will get everything as in the Private Pledge but every model in the box will come painted by our artist. He is very experienced with much smaller and detailed models from our previous campaigns so we guarantee that the farmstead, terrain and tank miniatures will look stunning.

You will get everything as in the Private Pledge but most of the elements in the box will come supersized. Quadrupled volume of the board, miniatures, tanks and animal cards. Megapack for megasupporters!

Below there is a list of avaliable add-ons. Purchasing one or more of them will greatly support our campaign. If you want to add any of those extra items to your order, please increase the amount you pledge by the add-on's value. After this Kickstarter concludes in the pledge menager you will be able to customize your order.

Below there is a list of stretch goals. We want to keep you guys interested and give something back to you after you fund our project. This is why every time the pledged amount reaches another stretch goal there will be a campaign-wide bonus for every backer. When you mention Armymals to someone, you increase the chance that more cool stuff will end up in your order!
Note: All stretch goals that applied to "each pledge" apply to "each game box" now.

The Armymals Headquarters decided to hold a tournament that will emerge a Furry General. For the competition to be valid it requires at least 24 Animal Commanders. They will have to pass crazy tests and perform complicated combat maneuvers to prove their worthiness of eternal reign over the Armymals. Here is a list of the contenders that have enrolled and been approved already.

The list below contains the names of the Animal Commanders that did not make the cut. They are waiting for a green light or have not even enrolled to the tournament yet. We need 24 (+6) contenders in the main roster, so we will update those lists as soon as we have new intel. The final squad may have even more than 24 members if specific stretch goals are reached. If you guys know or can come up with more Animal Commanders please share them in the comment section.

Take a look at the close-ups of the models from our Campaign. We are primarily a miniature forging company so we designed  our boardgame with the aim to feature some interesting models. Most miniatures below have been already 3d printed and cast in resin to ensure they are detailed and fit well into the board. The models you will find in the final version will maintain the same level of precision and will be made from high quality, non-toxic materials.

We will be charging shipping via our pledge manager after the Kickstarter concludes. 

We will ship your rewards to proper fullfillment centers in EU, US, Canada and Asia. From our history in selling miniatures and previous campaignes we have business contacts all over the world that will help us find the most economic and efficient way to deliver you your goods.  

The final cost of shipping will be calculated for every backer depending on his/her location. Note that ordering more than one game or a supersized version requires paying the same and only one shipping fee.

Here is the list of estimated prices: Your shipping will never cost more than the maximum price stated here.

EU - $8-$15
US & Canada - $11-$17
Asia - $15-$25
Rest of the world - $25+

Risks and challenges

This is not our first campaign. We have completed projects on the British version of the Kickstarter and Indiegogo..We can promise that our main goal is to make you happy and excited when you receive and open our product. We are pretty independet with our projects because we keep most of the production in-house. This also means that we are more resistant to delays but only on our side. We still cannot do anything about customs delay and other shipping issues that might come up. That being said we are already working hard everyday to meet the time schedule. An important factor in the shipping proccess is the distribution network based on our miniatures' retail system.
The last real risk that comes to our minds and that you can help greatly with is playtesting. We have played many games with our friends and families, sent the prototype version to multiple reviewers but there always will be a room for improvement. We will post a printable version fo the game in our Gameplay section so everyone interested can check it out and even send us feedback on possible changes, balance issues and rule clarifications.
