Help Effigy raise funds for the sculpting, production, and painting of the next wave of miniatures for its sci-fi line, Havoc Protocol.

MAJOR UPDATES:

- NEW Rewards with access to even more miniatures.

- Female Troopers now come with every squad.

- ADD-ON miniature sets.

- More Stretch Goals revealed.

ADD-ONs are a great way to get even awesome Effigy miniatures and help the project reach higher goals. Currently there are 3 ADD-ONs: The Havoc Girls, Additional Havoc Squad, and The Founders. Each of these miniature sets can be obtained simply by adding the amount(s) to your $35 -HAVOC SQUAD- or higher pledge.

Havoc Girls – Receive a set of the 3 original Havoc Protocol miniatures.

Additional Havoc Squad – Receive an additional Havoc Squad (6 miniatures).

The Founders – Receive either one or both Founder miniatures. Check out a larger version of the artwork HERE. These outstanding concept drawings were done by Aaron Minier. (All Founder miniatures have an estimated delivery of February, 2013)

The main Kickstarter goal is only the beginning. Once the initial set of miniatures is funded, stretch goals will be revealed, giving the chance for even more miniatures to be added to existing pledges. The stretch goals are broken up into phases such as Alpha and Beta, with each phase having levels of its own. Each time a stretch goal is unlocked, the miniature(s) included will be added to any pledge with the corresponding designation (ie Havoc Squad – ALPHA is entitled to any extra miniatures included in successful Alpha stretch goals). 

Below is a list of the stretch goals.

ALPHA GOALS

Alpha stretch goals are the first phase of additional goals. All pledge levels with the Alpha designation will come with any of the additional miniatures included in successfully funded Alpha stretch goals!

Every pledge that includes the 4 standard troopers (this includes the Havoc Fire Team, Havoc Squad and every level above that) will be upgraded to include 2 unique female trooper sculpts. These 2 new sculpts will replace the duplicate male troopers that made up the original fire team, making every fire team include 4 different sculpts!

When the project reaches $10,000, every Alpha designation pledge (starting at $35 pledge) will include the Heavy Trooper in each squad! That means every squad now comes with 7 unique miniatures.

BETA GOALS

Beta stretch goals are the second phase of additional goals. New pledge rewards have been added to the list with the BETA designation. These new rewards are exactly the same as their Alpha counterparts but now include any of the great new figures from successfully funded Beta goals!

Once we hit the $15,000, all Beta designation pledges now include the Sniper with each Havoc Squad. This brings the total to 8 unique miniatures per squad.

If we can reach $20,000, every Beta designation pledge now includes the Lieutenant with each Havoc Squad! 9 unique miniatures per squad. (IMAGE UPDATE COMING SOON)

About this project

Effigy Miniatures broke into the industry last year, when, with the help of Kickstarter and over 70 generous backers, it launched a small line of sci-fi and fantasy miniatures. Since then, things have been going great! Yet now I’m wrestling with how best to expand the line. Should both sc-fi and fantasy themes be developed congruently? Would it be better to focus on a single unified line? After receiving thoughtful and sound advice from others in the industry and looking hard at where my interests truly lie, I am decisively honored to present Havoc Protocol.

Havoc Protocol is Effigy’s flagship line of sci-fi 32mm miniatures. Inspired by the original set of sci-fi girls, Havoc Protocol will see its first expansion in the form of a new group of miniatures called the Havoc Squad.

The Havoc Squad is a crack team of System Enforcement operatives comprised of five troopers. Included in the squad are the Squad Leader, two Pose-1 Male Troopers, and two Pose-2 Male Troopers. In addition, as an EXCLUSIVE for this Kickstarter campaign, every Havoc Squad will include a Havoc Drone, for a total of six miniatures per squad. With your help, these troops will have the funding they need to hunt down dirty space pirates and the other dangerous denizens wreaking havoc on the System.

However, sometimes even the Havoc Squad needs support. If we can hit the initial Kickstarter goal, new specialists will become available each time a new stretch goal is unlocked. So help me call in the reinforcements!

The Universe of Havoc Protocol

The Havoc Squad

“We risk our lives to maintain order in a sector that wants nothing more than total anarchy.”

-First Sergeant Dannon Trace

Welcome to System Enforcement, cadet, the final defense against galactic collapse. Ceti-Victora is in total disarray—ruined husks of starships litter the solar system, and renegade pirates fight for whatever precious resources can be found on the savage surfaces of the inner planets or the solar wastelands of the Wreck. In turn, a Havoc Protocol has been issued, and your squad is heading to the front lines…

The Havoc Squad represents the only force willing and able to meet the numerous threats facing the System. Soldiers, specialists, commandos, the Havoc Squad are known throughout the system as the only ones willing and able to fight, and in their hands rest the fate of the human race.

The Scattered Remains of Civilization

After discovering the ultimate secret of interstellar space travel, mankind has overstretched its foothold in the galaxy. The existence of “nodes” was discovered, each one serving as a gateway between distant solar systems. A network of interstellar travel was developed, and a new age had begun. New alien life was discovered, and the remains of hyper-advanced civilizations uncovered.

However, where wonder was found, horror lay in wait. A destructive alien race turned its attention to Earth, threatening to destroy humanity’s ancestral home. Panicked, a government-sanctioned mandate called for the destabilization of the node the aliens planned to use, in turn collapsing any connected nodes—cutting off all systems from each other.

Like the rest of the human-settled systems, Ceti-Victora (commonly referred to as the System) must now fend for itself and carve out its own intergalactic city-state, with the hopes that one day it will reunite with the rest of humanity.

Please spread the word about Effigy to all your friends and co-workers, on Facebook, Twitter, and all your other social networks, at your gaming groups, local stores, and any other place you gather. Thanks for checking out the project and happy gaming!
