About this project
Thank you for stopping by and supporting Warpath - your help will allow us to create an exciting new sci-fi miniatures game and help bring loads of great new miniatures and armies to clubs and stores next year!
To help you build a complete 2,000 point Warpath armies - or pick up a great deal on a couple of different factions - we've put together this great-value Total Warfare pledge. It includes everything you need to play Warpath, plus loads of great goodies and rewards:
There are two sets of rules for Warpath. Which you choose depends on your style of play – you may prefer one over the other, or link both sets together in a campaign. The choice is yours!
Warpath is the mass-combat strategy game that allows you to play massive sci-fi battles on the tabletop, quickly and affordably. Using Warpath’s innovative Orders system, you’ll command an army of infantry, elite specialists and hi-tech vehicles, in a dynamic game of strategy and tactics. Find out more on our blog.
Warpath: Firefight is the squad-level battle game where every soldier matters. With an emphasis on cinematic battles between as few as 30 soldiers a side, the game is designed to zoom in on the action, with a focus on dynamic, tactical games, whilst retaining Mantic’s game design philosophy of being easy to learn and fast paced. Ideal if you are looking for an alternative to other games on the market. Read more here.
Warpath is played with armies of infantry, vehicles and heroes, represented by 28mm scale miniatures. Whilst there are many more armies, factions and races, this Kickstarter will initially focus on:
The Enforcers are the Corporation’s elite, dispatched to tackle threats that are beyond the scope of regular military units. Each one is a superior soldier, trained in countless forms of combat and equipped with the best technology available. As a unit they are disciplined and fearless, ready to lay down their lives to carry out the orders of their captain without a single question.
A Forge Father Army is among the most technologically advanced in the galaxy. The Forge Fathers are not tempted to battle easily, but will readily deploy their forces to defend their honour and their trading interests. The Forge Fathers do not wage war lightly, but once committed they will depart only when their foe has been annihilated!
An insidious disease ridden race, the Veer-Myn fester in the darkest corners of man’s world. Their broods writhe and chatter in a rodent like manner, equally matched by their physical appearance. The uncertainty of whether the Veer-Myn act with a motive, or just the need to infest and expand, only adds to the nightmare created from what lurks within the shadows.
We have taken to Kickstarter to raise the funding we need to release the game and complete several armies. In return for your support we've put together some incredible value-for-money pledge levels to get you started with Warpath - The Sci-fi Battle Game.

* You will make your choice of either the Two Player Battle Set or Battlegroup after the campaign has finished - check out the add-ons below for what each contains.
Once the project is completed we will send you access to an automated Pledge Manager. On here you will input your choices and let us know what you would like for your pledge.
Please note that all miniatures are supplied unassembled and unpainted.
Add-ons are extras you can pledge for in addition to a pledge level to really sweeten the deal!
Pledging and selecting Optional Add-ons
To get an Optional Add-on, click “Manage my Pledge” in the top right corner of the Kickstarter page and input the total value of everything you want. For example, if you’re at Advanced Warfare ($125) and want an additional Battlegroup ($75), you would enter $200 as your total pledge.
When the campaign has finished, we will send you access to a shiny automated Pledge Manager. On here you will input your choices and let us know what you would like for your donation.
Operation Heracles - Two Player Set
Mars Attacks Battlegroups
Battlegroup Expansion Sets
If we successfully beat our goal, we will use any additional funding to produce new miniatures to complete our existing armies.
With your help, anything is possible. Please join us on this Kickstarter and help make Warpath possible, and fantastic. Thanks for your support!
Based on our past experience with Kickstarter, we will charge shipping after the Kickstarter based on the actual costs. We will collect this via our pledge manager after the campaign ends.
Calculating shipping this way is fairer to all backers - miniatures, scenery and books are heavy, and there can be a big difference in shipping lots of scenery or just a standard pledge. By not including shipping in the pledge level, it also means we can give you more stretch goal rewards!
We will ship your pledges from the UK.
As a rough estimate, the Advanced Warfare pledge level will cost about $10 to ship in the UK, $15 in the EU, $20 in the USA and Canada, and around $25 to Australia and the rest of the world. This may increase or decrease based on the quantity of stretch goals we might unlock and your carrier choices.
As a rough estimate, the Advanced Warfare pledge level will cost about $15 to ship in the UK, $20 in the EU, $25 in the USA and Canada, and around $50 to Australia and the rest of the world. This may increase or decrease based on the quantity of stretch goals we might unlock and your carrier choices.
As a rough estimate, the Total Warfare pledge level will cost about $15 to ship in the UK, $25 in the EU, $60 in the USA and Canada, and around $70 to Australia and the rest of the world. The USA Value may decrease if we can secure a shipper in the US to dispatch US kickstarter pledges. This may increase or decrease based on the quantity of stretch goals we might unlock and your carrier choices.
As a rough estimate, the Ultimate Tyrant pledge level will cost about $15 to ship in the UK, $25 in the EU, $90 in the USA and Canada, and around $125 to Australia and the rest of the world. The USA Value may decrease if we can secure a shipper in the US to dispatch US kickstarter pledges. This may increase or decrease based on the quantity of stretch goals we might unlock and your carrier choices.
While we strive to get you your rewards in a timely manner, you may not necessarily receive all of your rewards before some of the product makes it into distribution in your own country or before it's made available at conventions. We hope that the special price and exclusive items you will get during the Kickstarter will make up for this!
Risks and challenges
There are a number of risks with running a Kickstarter project, especially when dealing with China and getting accurate timings. With this project, we are already sculpting the miniatures and the files are with the toolmaker ready to push the go button to help minimise this.
The other aspect to the delivery of this Kickstarter are the rules, and we'll be working with our rules commitee and editors to put together the new rulebooks.
We have an estimated delivery date of August that includes some contingency to account for possible delays.
To date, we’ve successfully dispatched six projects: the original Kings of War campaign, DreadBall – The Futuristic Sports Game, LOKA, Mars Attacks – The Miniatures Game, the original Deadzone campaign, and DreadBall Xtreme. We've successfully shipped the first wave of Kings of War in August, with a smaller Wave 2 to follow in November. Dungeon Saga will begin shipping from October, and Deadzone: Infestation in January, leaving our design team free to put their efforts behind Warpath.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
