About


"The Mrs. had followed her grandmother's gingerbread cookie recipe exactly as she had been taught as a child, however, she was extra cautious not to add too much pixie dust and rum to the bowl of ingredients this time.

Amid the dry heat of her convection oven the gingerbread dough began to blend with the magical components, and everything was slowly activated by the steady warmth of the preheated oven. 

When the leavening agents and other alchemical ingredients puffed out the enchanted dough, The Gingerbread Gang began to magically come to life, and the kitchen was suddenly filled with the scent of cinnamon, nutmeg, and something else I didn’t quite recognize."

-Sugarplum Mary Sparklepants

"Well...whilst she mixed the dry ingredients together...she occasionally muttered something to herself, which I couldn't understand. And amid quite a bit of chuckling, I overheard The Mrs. softly sing some sort of ditty about "Sugar, and spice, and things not quite nice.".  

I think she may have had a nip, or three, of rum."

-Alice Shuggabaker

"As The Gingerbread Gang were cooling down on the baking rack, they told me it was quite warm, and very cozy inside of the oven.”

Hello guys, gals, and non-binary pals, 

Thank you for making the previous War in Christmas Village Kickstarters a success, and welcome back to another crowdfunding venture! 

We are seeking funds to create our newest batch of tabletop holiday gaming miniatures, as well as, create a packaged war band set of our two most popular snowmen minis, per our backer community request.

War in Christmas Village tabletop gaming miniatures are perfectly scaled for most popular tabletop role playing games, miniatures war games, railroad hobbyists, Christmas Village displays, and other holiday dioramas. 

War in Christmas Village tabletop minis are highly detailed, mold injected PVC, arrive unpainted, and are scaled 28mm boot to eye. 

But, don't take our word for it check out some of the reviews of our prior War in Christmas Village tabletop miniatures releases :)

We have been diligently working on a set of streamlined, "beer & pretzels style", tabletop, skirmish game rules for War in Christmas Village.  We recommend  utilizing an existing Christmas Village display for game terrain. 2 player game runs about 90 minutes. 

I’d like to raise funds to hire a graphic artist to professionally lay out the War in Christmas Village miniatures game rulebook, create tokens, and make the action ability game cards.

War in Christmas Village Print & Play Paper Minis
War in Christmas Village Print & Play Paper Minis

The War in Christmas Village tabletop game rules are currently a complete, downloadable, print & play tabletop game with an entire line of paper minis to cut out and play the game with, featuring the art work of Corey Fields.  

I need a little help cleaning up the presentation and making the rule book look pretty. Any extra funds raised will go to hiring a graphic artist for the layout of the rulebook.



Grrrrrr!
Grrrrrr!


I believe in giving back to the community whenever I can, 10% of the money raised from all War in Christmas Village sales on eBay are donated to Doctors With our Borders, and these past two years I have donated extra sets of The War in Christmas Village tabletop miniatures to various non-profit and charitable organizations. 

This year, and the previous year, during the month of July, we donated sets of The War in Christmas Village tabletop gaming miniatures for attendance prize giveaways during each of Nerd Louisville's "Slur Yoyr Role"  and Friday Night RPGs events for "Christmas in July".

Nerd Louisville is a 501C3 non-profit based in Louisville, Kentucky which hosts various nerd events around town, while raising funds to donate books, board games, role-playing games, and other interactive learning aids to The DePaul School, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Kentuckiana, and various Jefferson County Public Schools serving at risk youth. 

Thank you to everyone for helping make the donations of War in Christmas Village tabletop gaming miniatures to these non-profits a possibility :)

Risks and challenges

We are working with same manufacturer, the same creative teams, the same artists, and the same behind the scenes wizards we have worked with on our previous three Kickstarters. We have brought a few new artists on board this year too :)

Other than the standard chaos, which goes along with being on an orb spinning through space, we don't forsee any major obstacles. The manufacturer has the art work and is ready to go.
