About this project

 Frozen Rampage is the first game produced by Rusty Nickel Miniatures based out of Buffalo, NY. Frozen Rampage is a two player, fast-paced, turn-based, fantasy miniature ice hockey game. The starter box includes two teams, human and orc, each of which is composed of ten miniatures.

The goal of Frozen Rampage is to use strategy and an arsenal of special abilities to outsmart and outscore your opponent. A game of Frozen Rampage will take approximately 40 minutes to an hour, and the learning curve is typically less than one game.

The miniatures that will be included with the starter set as well as team sets (which include 4 defensemen, 4 forwards, a goalie, and a star player) will all be cast in plastic. Unique miniatures such as the Referee, Kevlan Gor (our Kickstarter exclusive), and star players not available in the starter sets will be cast in white metal.

WIP's and completed sculpts of the production miniatures will be posted here.  Check back for constant updates!

If Frozen Rampage meets its funding goal, we plan to continue the Frozen Rampage line eventually adding more teams and additional star players. The Expansion Drafts will include Dwarves, Goblins, Zombies, and Elves. We also plan on introducing new star players and ref figure in these Expansion Drafts.  Below is some concept art for the upcoming teams and in the stretch goals section, you can read about the Referee.

 In honor of our Kickstarter launch, we will be releasing our first free agent player that can play for any team, Kevlan Gor. He is a Half Orc defenseman, so he will fit in nicely with either the Human or Orc team contained in our starter box. He has a special ability that will allow him to pass the puck double his passing distance to help clear the puck out of the defensive zone.

Add the value of the additional items that you want to purchase to your donation. As we unlock more stretch goals, more add-ons will become available.

All miniatures are supplied with bases and stat cards.

***PLEASE NOTE*** The miniatures pictured are prototype versions only. If funding for Frozen Rampage is successful, all miniatures will be resculpted.

Here is a more detailed description of the rewards that are available at all of the different pledge levels.  If you have any questions, please feel free to ask in our FAQ section.  Donation levels that will benefit from stretch goals are mentioned in the Stretch Goals section below.

Although there is no physical reward at this level, you will receive our eternal gratitude for pledging to help create Frozen Rampage.

At this level, you will receive a signed 11 x 17 inch glossy print of the cover artwork of Frozen Rampage signed by the artist Nate Gandt. All prints will be numbered and limited to this Kickstater campaign.

For a pledge of $20, you will not only receive the signed artwork from the Holding level, but you will also receive the limited edition Kickstarter miniature Kevlan Gor.  Kevlan is a free agent, half-orc, defensive star, making him useable on both the human and orc teams.  Kevlan will be a professionally sculpted miniature and will be packaged with base and stat card.

For $35, you will received the signed box artwork, a copy of Kevlan Gor, and a Frozen Rampage T-Shirt. When we do the final survey, please provide what size you need.

At the clipping level of $70, you will receive a copy of Frozen Rampage. MSRP $70 - Includes free shipping to US customers.

Add $15 for shipping to Canada.  Add $45 for shipping to Europe.

At the Instigating level, you will not only receive a copy of Frozen Rampage, but you will also receive the signed print, and the Kevlan Gor miniature.

Add $15 for shipping to Canada.  Add $45 for shipping to Europe.

For $500, you will receive a copy of Frozen Rampage, the signed artwork, Kevlan Gor and you will be able to have dinner with both Aaron and Nate, the creators of Frozen Rampage at PAX East 2014 or GenCon 2014.  Once everything settles out here, we will work with all donors to set up a schedule that works best for each person that purchases this rewards.

For a $650 donation, you will not only receive three copies of the game, three copies of the signed artwork, and three copies of Kevlan Gor, but you will also receive a case for your teams as well as a Frozen Rampage hockey jersey.  When we do the final survey, please provide what size you need.  Sizes above XL may have an additional charge.

For $1,000, you will receive the Unsportsmanlike Conduct rewards, and one of the sets will be professionally painted.

At the $1,500 level, you will receive the Unsportsmanlike Conduct rewards, and one of the sets will be painted by both Aaron and Nate, the creators of Frozen Rampage.

For a pledge of $2,000, you will receive the Unsportsmanlike Conduct reward and you will be able to name one of our up-comming star players.  Race options may be limited.

Rusty Nickel Miniatures reserves the right to decline any name that is vulgar, obscene, or in violation of copyright law.

At the $3,000 level, along with the Unsportsmanlike Conduct reward, you also will have the chance to be immortalized as a star player in Frozen Rampage.

You will be able to chose you race and customize your look in concept sketches with Nate.  Once complete, we will have your player professionally sculpted and made available for purchase as a Free Agent player.

You will be also be able to name your player.

Rusty Nickel Miniatures reserves the right to decline any name that is vulgar, obscene, or in violation of copyright law.

If we can reach the following goals, backers will receive the additional rewards below.

If we can raise $20,000, we will be able to produce Frozen Rampage and bring it to the market.

Just like anything else as you practice, you get better over time.  Well, since the first minis were sculpted for Frozen Rampage, the owners of Rusty Nickel Miniatures have been improving their sculpting abilities, so if we are funded, all of the miniatures will be re-sculpted.

Another thing that we hope to accomplish once we have received funding will be to set up a forum on our website where coaches can not only discuss strategy, but they can also show off their conversions, team paint jobs, and even set up local leagues to play Frozen Rampage.

At this level, after Kickstarter and Amazon take their cut, all of the funds raised will go directly towards the production of the base set of Frozen Rampage.

At $40,000, we will be able to hire professionals to sculpt the starting line-up of both the human and orc team.  Reaching this level will also ensure that every future team will be professionally sculpted as well.

All pledge levels receiving a copy of Frozen Rampage will benefit from this stretch goal.

At this level, all of the proceeds will still go directly towards the production of Frozen Rampage base set, just with higher quality sculptures.

If we can reach $50,000, each pledge over $85 will receive an additional set of dice for each copy of the game included in the reward.  This way, both players will have their own set of dice.  Each set includes 4 x d6 and a random directional die.

At $50,000 of funding, all of the proceeds will still go towards the production of the Frozen Rampage base set. (Starting to see a pattern here?)

At $60,000, we will be able to have a referee sculpted.  This miniature will be included in any pledge over $85.

At the beginning of each player's turn, the referee will be moved.  Players will be able to pass through the referee, but they will not be able to move through them.  A referee will also count as a screen shot and will interfere with a player's check or cross check.

Using the referee in a game is optional.

Finally, if we are able to reach $60,000, a large portion of the funds raised will go towards the production of the base set of Frozen Rampage, but once we hit this goal, we will be able to start putting aside money for sculpts of future Expansion Draft teams and add on Star Players.

Risks and challenges

The challenges associated with this game are the same as any other tabletop miniatures game.

By having an in house art department, we have minimized the risk for the initial publication of Frozen Rampage down to any supply issues that may come up. The box artwork is completed, the miniatures have been sculpted, and all additional artwork has been completed. At this stage all we have to do is send the game off to be manufactured once we have a successful campaign.

We have performed our research and found sources for the components.

Once we begin to reach our stretch goals we will have to contact professional sculptors and work with deadlines in order to get the miniatures completed and produced.

If we begin to reach stretch goals, we may start to see delays in production, simply because we will have to wait on professional sculptors as well. Throughout game development though, we have been constantly searching for and contacting professional sculptors that would be available to create refined sculpts.
