About this project
The Phalanx Consortium and Dishdash Games believe there has never been a better time for gamers to fight the zombie apocalypse than now. And there is no better system to use than Skirmish RAGERS, at least that what those of you who have been playing this great game have been telling us.
Since we launched Skirmish Ragers at GENCON 2015 it has gone from strength to strength. So for all our loyal players and the Zombie player community as a whole, we want your help in producing our first set of Survivors. Lets face it you can never have too many survivors right!
This is our first set of 10 metal miniatures and each miniature comes with a full Skirmish RAGERS backstory and downloadable character card (PDF).
The ten individually sculpted survivor miniatures, of which you can see some samples here, will all be lovingly sculpted and developed by our team to help add character to your Zed apocalypse. In order to show you the complete process we have gone as far as creating the first miniature in the series, so you can see how the digital sculpt will look once produced as a white metal casting.
Each survivor has a unique backstory and backstory pdf specifically designed for you to play these characters in RAGERS or they give you background for zombie game of choice.
Also everyone who pledges will get a free PDF copy of the Skirmish RAGERS rulebook, a 96 page full colour book, that contains all the rules of the game.
Here is a review from Wargames, Soldiers & Strategy
"The opportunity to have almost free reign is I feel ‘Skirmish RAGERS greatest strength. The book provides campaign rules where your characters can expand their knowledge, and several scenarios but outside of this the book gives you the scope to do the Zombie apocalypse exactly as you want to do it. I massively enjoyed this book, the narrative is dark but fun and the rules beautifully flexible. I think ‘Skirmish RAGERS’ is more than capable of holding its own and well worth the cover price."
Skirmish RAGERS ( was OUTBREAK) recently won the d-Infinity Independent Games Awards 2016 - Miniatures Game of the Year

Shipping Information: We will be bulking shipping product into the major world regions for direct distribution to our backers. Therefore, we will be able to charge the lower shipping costs within those regions, versus trying to fulfill directly from one country to the rest of the world. Since shipping costs have been in a great deal of flux of late we have chosen to invoice each backer at time of fulfillment, and not try to predict those costs today. All shipping will be invoiced so that only our costs to ship are covered. This method worked well on our previous "Day of the Rangers" campaign.
Risks and challenges
This is Dishdash Games (Radio Dishdash Publishing) and The Phalanx Consortium’s 2nd Kickstarter, our first one, “Day of the Rangers” can be checked out on Kickstarter. Here are some of the comments:
"Got my package yesterday. Just wonderful stuff. Well worth the wait..."
Six Shootin' Three Coffin Norman
"Got my stuff!!!!!!! Amazing is all I can say. Thanks to Colin & Co. and everybody else here involved in making this happen!"
"Received the miniatures and book this morning. .. excellent quality."
Together our companies create games, miniatures, and accessories to a high quality to create an immersive tabletop gaming experience. This experience has given us the experience needed to bring this project to life.
We have already created four books in the Skirmish Sangin Range and two for Skirmish RAGERS, as well as two ranges of miniatures consisting of 100+ models.
With your support we can take our current sculpts and concept drawings to the completed stage so that you can enjoy these miniatures on your next supply run out among the Dead and the Living.
We have built upon our experiences from our first Kickstarter campaign so that we can insure the quality and responsive timing that backers are looking for as a campaign moves forward from funding to fulfillment.
We also have experience in distributing our products on a worldwide basis, we are currently based in New Zealand, USA and the UK, so worldwide distribution is already taken care of.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
