About this project
Color Warz : Dark Threat is the Color Warz : Paint Brawl sequel.
This new game stages an epic battle between the colors unified around the Chosen One to the Wooden King and his black paint. This two players board game proposes an asymmetric gameplay: each player has different abilities and characters. The players don't have the same goals. It's a standalone game with some bridges with the previous boardgame: Paint Brawl.
Color Warz : Dark Threat in 5 key points
=> Define a Strategy to bring up the white light with the Bright Chosen One or cover the world of black paint with the Ultimate Bane.
=> Choose between your movements, attacks and special Actions to find the best way to defeat your opponent !
=> This board game is accessible for Casual Gamers
=> With different difficulty levels, additional characters and scenarios. The Core Gamers will enjoy it too !
=> Compatible with Color Warz : Paint Brawl game, it increases the game possibilities when you have both games.
=> High detailed resin miniatures range compatible with the game (see below).

Like in ouf first game, Color Warz : Paint Brawl, we develop a miniature range compatible with Color Warz : Dark Threat.
20 new models are planned for launch the campaign and some other amazing miniatures are considered depending on the success of the campaign (stretch goal).
Below, you can see the 4 firsts models
The Color Warz : Dark Threat miniatures will be sculpted by Ammon Miniatures (Da Clash!) with who we have a partnership. We already work with Valentin Zak (Ammon Miniatures owner), who has sculpted some of our miniatures : Warrior #2, Shaman #2, Ninja, Cleric and Monk.
Now you know what we have done for our first game : Color Warz : Paint Brawl. So, imagine what we can do for Dark Threat !
Color Warz is an original universe based on paint, small creatures and magic.
An antic battle opposes Kaos the God of nothingness to Gaia the Goddess of life to take control of Mana, the pure magical star.
The story takes place in a little planet called Khroma, overhung with a giant tree : The World Tree.
There, The Khromaz which are small creatures leave and grow up on Khromic tree and make fight with paint. They are six different clans : red, blue, yellow, green, orange and purple. Each clan gets his own specificity.
But in the cursed forest, a dark power is growing and a great danger approaches to enslave the Khromaz people.
Hopefully, an old master called Oak is looking for the Chosen One that will be enough powerful to counter the Dark Threat.
In Color Warz : Paint Brawl, Oak the old wise was looking for the Chosen One. The players have to fight with colors in several challenges to prove that they are the Chosen One.
In Color Warz : Dark Threat, Oak found the Chosen One and the Dark Threat has been revealed. One player plays Gaia forces with the Chosen One, Oak and his Followers. And the other plays Kaos with the Wooden King, Fongia the Mushroom Queen and their minions to unleash the Bane.
Below you will find link to articles about Color Warz : Dark Threat characters.
We are a young game publisher based in France, close to Versailles.
The company was established in March 2011 with the main goal to publish games and miniatures issued from the original Color Warz universe.
Color Warz is the continuity of the final school project (game design) of the two authors. The video game prototype won a gameplay award in December 2006 on a video game contest.
Fabien and Nicolas, authors of Color Warz and associates at FLUO Games too, are graduated from a famous french game designer school since 2006. Both of them had teached game design and supervised board game and video game projects.
Matthieu is graduated from a reputed french business school and Stevens works in sale industry since more than 10 years.
We are currently four friends working in the company.
FLUO Games is now publishing a first board game: Color Warz : Paint Brawl and twenty high details resin miniatures compatible with the game including 7 planned for 2013.
We distribute ourself our products through our online shop (FLUO Shop) and our network of local shops (twenty in France and Europe).
We need your help to fund this new ambitious project that Color Warz : Dark Threat is.
Without your support, we can not give life to this project.
We count on you!
Risks and challenges
Though this is our first kickstarter adventure we at FLUO Games are all seasoned veterans of the gaming industry.
Since 2011 we have created, produced and sold one board game, Color Warz : Paint Brawl and more than 20 different resin miniatures.
For this campaign we have organized a partnership with renowned crowd funding oriented firms : Devil Pig Games for its Heroes of Normandie campaign and post-campaign management, and Ammon Miniatures for the realization and the production of all the Color Warz : Dark Threat miniatures.
All the game's elements will be printed in Germany by a company specialized in gaming material, with who we had already worked for our first board game.
Therefore, we made sure of our game quality and delivery schedule.
Concerning the delivery, the delivery term : july 2014, is defined because of the production of the resin miniatures which take a long time to be hand sculpt and produced.
At this moment all the game rules are written and well tested.
Regarding the art works, all the character design are complete.
It remains the work on the game elements :
- illustration of the game box (coming soon)
- game board elements (illustration of the game board, temples, items)
- game rules sketch
We will let you know about all the steps of the process and how it is going. So you will know exactly where we stand.
Even though bullshit could happen, be confident that at FLUO Games we will make our best to solve it quickly and definitly.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
Color Warz games are wargaming initiation board games.
The required year to play Paint Brawl is 8 years and Dark Threat is 12 years old.
However, you can play with younger players if they are introduces to board games and wargames.
For example, the child in the main page video with whom Fabien play with is only 9 years old. He never played Color Warz : Dark Threat before. He played the all game by himself.
At the same time do not trust "colored" graphisms or "Z" thing.
Both Color Warz board games are made for adults and core gamers too.
Just take a look on the review on TGN, Ravage, Blogurizine, Pyre Studios, etc.
The gameplay fits with the players profil.
Unlike many wargames, you can play Color Warz : Paint Brawl and Dark Threat easily with a large public.

There are some bridges with the two games.
Below you will find some exemples.
Dark Threat characters in Paint Brawl
- Avatars : they will replace Chiefs in Color Warz : Paint Brawl as an alternative GQ choice. You must pay 1 bonus card per turn to keep it in game (upkeep cost), if not, it becomes a totem. If you want to invoke it again, it will cost 2 bonus cards.
- Followers : You can play with Ninja, Cleric and Monk in Paint Brawl. They are kind of mercenary. You can not paint them but they take the Oak's color. See the rules on our website :
Paint Brawl characters in Dark Threat with Wooden skeletons stretch goal
- Combatants : you can replace the 3 followers by 6 combatants.
- Skeletons : characters in contact with a skeleton are frightened.
Frightened combatants (Warriors, Hunters and Shamans) become wooden skeletons.
If a skeleton is painted by a colored puddle, it becomes a combatant.
The Gaia player decides which type of combatant. That is aslo compatible with Girlz Blast.

After talking with some french miniatures publisher, we decided to make crossover models between our respective lines.
For now, there are 3 french friend publishers involved in this project :
- Blacksmith Miniatures - with the Ronin mounted on Toad.
More informations : see update #14
Link to Blacksmith Miniatures : http://www.blacksmith-miniatures.com/shop/en/
- Ammon Miniatures - with a Muay Thai variation of the Ronin for Da Clash ! game.
More informations : see update #15
Link to Ammon Miniatures : http://ammon-miniatures.com
- Skulls Mini - with the 54mm Fallen One bust
More informations : see update #16
Link to Skulls Mini : http://www.skullsmini.com/…
As you can see, all of crossover models will be realised on the Ronin character base to make a bridge between all partners ranges.
All designs are currently in progress.
Long time ago, the Ronin was the first and the most brilliant Oak follower.
He was so powerful than Oak thought he had found in him the Chosen One.
But he was lonesome and selfish, he had the power but not the heart to being the Chosen One.
When he realized that his destiny was different from what he had hinted, the Ronin challenged the decision of Oak and fought him in duel.
Humiliated by the defeat, he swore revenge and drew up under the banner of the Wooden King. He is now considered the most powerful general of evil hordes.
This scenario takes place between Paint Brawl and Dark Threat. You will play the ascent of the Red Chief before he became the Chosen One. You will find on your way the Fallen One.
Gaia player will be able to play the Chief mounted on Koloss and Kaos Player the Fallen One which has the power to doomed other followers with his dark sword.
You can find the corresponding miniatures on the MiniZ Wave 2 (unlockable at £50,000)
« Kaos is a powerful god. He can embody himself in many shapes.
Before taking control of the Wooden King, he tried several times to return on Khroma.»
In this new scenario, you will take control of Oak and his followers to fight against one of the most dangerous form of Kaos : A Black Paint Dragon.
This scenario is focused on level design and you may take control of key points to weaken and destroy the Paint Dragoon. But take care of the Black Gremlins, they are malicious and fast. They can reinforce the power of the Dragon.
You can find the corresponding miniatures on the MiniZ Wave 3 (unlockable at £50,000)
Girlz Blast is a full expansion for Color Warz Dark Threat and Color Warz : Paint Brawl unlockable at a goal of £125,000. It will contain 11 characters and 12 Blast cards.
You will find the first part of these characters in the Color Warz : Paint Brawl 1st edition :
Matriach, Smasher, Ranger, Mystic and Paint Clone.
You can find corresponding miniatures in the MiniZ second set box.
For Color Warz : Paint Brawl 2nd edition we will spit both games and publish Girlz Blast separately.
Full Girlz Blast expansion will contain 6 new characters plus the 5 previoulsy described.
There will be 3 new combatants : Paladine, Bomber and Djinn and 3 new followers : Valkyrie, Amazone and Dryade.
All these new Girlz Blast models are available on the optional stuff :
Wave 1 : Paladine, Bomber and Djinn
Wave 2 : Valkyrie, Amazone and Dryade
Girlz Blast expansion will also intruduce the "cast" system.
You will now be able to replace your clan basic combatants by others.
For exemple, the red clan will be able to change a Warrior by a Smasher or a Paladine.
Finally, Blasts are special powers for all Paint Brawl and Girlz Blast combatants.
Totem Party is a full card game for 2 to 5 players.
This is a party game.
You can play to it with kids or with friends wherever you want.
This is very easy to learn and fast to play. A party is about 20 minutes.
Each player has 3 cards in there hand and each turn we draw a totem.
The totem shows the trump for the turn.
Each turn, each player plays one card. There are Color Warz characters on each card.
By the way a low card (Kadamas) from the totem color can beat a higher card from another color.
We will post the rulebook when the corresponding pledge will be unlocked.
Every follower and backer can help us in many (free) ways.
For exemple, you can put a Color Warz avatar on your profile.
