    Tier 8: Super Soldier

    One of the few, and the brave- SKIRMISH will feature your own original character as a 'follower' card, immortalized on one of the game's 168 cards. Fine print: We'll send a contract, where you give us permission to use your character. (The character has to be yours, you can't just say 'Batman' and expect us to walk into that minefield. You keep the rights to your character, but extend us a license to use it in SKIRMISH.) Also, the mechanics of the game are tightly designed, so we can't give you control over your stats. But we can include your character name, original art by David of your character, and also flavor text on the card that we can write together.

    The original pencil art of your character will, of course, be sent to you along with any concept sketches.

    Speaking of original art, you get the best we have to offer- original pencil art from one of the base-8 leader characters in the game.

    You'll also be able to select not one, but four hand-painted resin figurine dice-holders.

    And the hand-crafted goodness doesn't stop there.

    David will be building a custom-made TriCase for you.

    It's a handcrafted wooden game case that contains compartments for everything the game includes, and which folds out into a three-part hard play surface.

    I'll be making these look as beautiful as I know how- if you've seen our Prints binder at conventions, you know the sort of thing to expect.

    This, and 8 Memento marker-sketch cards added to jazz up your Super Soldier rewards.
