Ruination is a game of heroic tabletop combat played with 1-4 figures per side.

We have spent the last 2 years play testing and developing this game, specifically with 54mm scale in mind, a scale which conveys the heroic nature of the game play, and can carry the enormous detail of the figures. Its fast and fluid, with lots of movement and action.

The battle packs

Each battle pack contains:
2 x 54mm scale Hero figures
1 set of dice 1D4, D6, D8, D10, D12, D20
1 printed stat card for each hero
1 A5 sheet of laminated body cards per hero
1 A5 sheet of laminated skill cards per hero
12 resin counters
Rules as pdf

Battle pack 1 contains

Tarquin (inventor) and Dahlia (sorceress) see links below for character details and images.

Battle pack 2 contains

Alina (warrior) and the Rogue (as yet unnamed rogue) see links below for character details and images.

There are already 10 figures sculpted, and these are ready to go to production, its this initial production cost we need to cover with kickstarter funds. There are well over 30 more figures in concept phase, some of which are nearly complete or part sculpted. All the artwork you see is generated from 3d models ready to be printed. There is a WIP gallery here should you wish to see more of the figures we have been working on, check the links section at the bottom of the page.

Temple Terrain

Simple temple features to complement the rules and figures, these provide a setting, some cover, and disrupt line of sight, but they also help provide atmosphere and ambiance to the gaming experience.

We already have a casting production house in place, and we have already invested years in developing the game and the first figures, all we need now are the funds to set the ball rolling.

Diceology. This is one of the most innovative aspects of this game system. Which allows you enormous flexibility in the dice you decide to use, which in turn opens all sorts of tactical possibilities. More details of how this works can be found here.

Size matters:

there will be different categories of miniatures in this kickstarter.

Standard Heroes. These will be available separately but also populate the battle packs.

Ltd edition heroes. These are figures on a limited run, you can get one with a pledge, or for the full retail price once the kick starter is over, should there are any left.

Oversized Heroes. These are big, massive heroes who will retail at £30 or above. These will be available as separate pledges as they are unlocked or should we just wish to add one. They will never be available in battle packs.

Stretch goal 1
Stretch goal 1

Mommet.

Stretch goal 1 £1500

Mommet. Man mountain, the unstoppable force of nature, what he lacks in finesse he makes up in power, and if he hits you with that axe, its gonna smart!

Mommet is a 5 piece resin kit, and he's big, this image shows his axe next to the sorceress, its enormous. The metal pins in his torso are made using a brass rod supplied with the kit, just cut them to length and stick them into the locating holes.

He is a large model, and when released he will be £30, once released by this stretch goal he will be available to backers for £25. you will find more images for him in the heroes section on our website.

Prices

After the kickstarter finishes the prices will average at £19:50 for one 54mm figure. all figures are made in resin.

The Battle packs will be £40 These include 2 figures, 1 set of dice, 1 set of 12 resin counters and a pdf of the rules.

The price of terrain will vary according to weight, a pair of large sculpted figurative pillars should come in at around £10.

Risks and challenges

Challenges.
Casting vast quantities of miniatures is the first big hurdle.

We have a good capacity set up, and the figures have been designed and in some cases split into parts, in order to make casting easier. We know at what point this will become an issue (ie the number of casts required to stretch delivery times) and have already looked at ways to expand capacity should the need arise. We would need to reach enormous quantities before this extra capacity would be exhausted.

We will remain in constant contact with backers to inform of delays or indeed early shipment.

Other risks. If anyone sees a risk or as a concern please ask, we will be on hand throughout the month and beyond to answer questions help where ever possible.
