Two Hour Wargames has partnered with Acheson Creations to bring you 5150: Bugs – Into the Tunnels, the first of our three 5150 Kickstarters. Into the Tunnels is a complete game playable with our 15mm scale pewter minis and resin tunnel sections.

Our tabletop games are playable in two hours or less. All of our games can be played solo or same side (cooperatively) as well as head-to-head against your friends.

Inside you’ll find: 

  • Complete rules covering five types of Bugs – Warrior, Worker, Flyer, Puker, and Brai
  • A Tunnel Building system that allows you to construct a wide variety of tunnels where no two are exactly alike. 
  • Ten different Scenarios that are linked together, building your Story. 
  • Army Lists for the Star Army, Star Marines, and Planet Defensive Force. 
  • Simple Campaign Rules that tie your Mission’s together, giving you a reason to play, with little bookkeeping. 
  • Easy yet realistic rules allowing you to play solo or co-operatively against the game, or head-to-head against your friends. 
  • All this and much more.

Risks and challenges

Acheson Creations has been in the business of making high-quality tabletop terrain since May 2000. Despite our longevity and experience, we are a small company with limited resources and personnel.

If this Kickstarter is successful, it will take some time to hand-pour each and every item (and that's after making every mold). Fortunately, we now consider ourselves to be experienced at successfully running projects such as this and we have tried to account for the labor time involved in our estimated shipping dates.

We have shipped rewards from our previous projects on time and we're ready to move forward. As you can see from the video and still photos, all our master sculpts are completed as are most of our Stretch Goal miniatures.
