A classic game based on the the 1970's movie Kelly's Heroes is making a comeback for the 40th anniversary of the first edition of the Kelly´s game!
A new terrain model is being built, new miniatures are being produced, and everything in never before seen scales.
The venerable old game that’s been played since 1978 is now being resurrected with a brand-new terrain model in 1:200 scale, and for that we need your help. Kelly needs you! As we gather the funds necessary to build this ambitious and beautiful new model, we’re releasing a unique series of miniatures. We hope these will give us a starting fund to get the diorama build going.
Join us in the most audacious operation of the war in a game played by over 1,000 players since 1978 and try your luck being the first to the gold! A word of caution though; since the first edition in 1978, only 2 games have ever ended with Kelly, Big Joe, Oddball, Crapgame, and the rest of the heroes replicating the success of the movie. Will you be the one to make it happen next? Help us bring this classic game back to life and get a unique addition to your own collection at a great price by backing Kelly's "A Miniature Range" right now!
The miniatures are one of the heroes with a goldbar and 2 versions of Colonel Dankhopf. One before he is kidnapped by the heroes and one after the kidnapping when he has been lubricated for interrogation.
Why the lack of stretchgoals?
We need to be able to start somewhere. If all the models go we know that there is an interest and we can do some more miniatures and maybe a re-print of the original 3.
We are mainly doing the miniatures to get some funds to get started with the diorama and that is a huge undertaking.
I don't care about the miniatures and just want to play Kelly's!
Just support this project without a reward and we are one step closer. In our gaming community there has been a discussion that people want to be able to buy a place in a game, for a certain amout you get to pick a character.
We strongly feel this is not an option. Kelly's has always been free to play and we don't want to change that.
Risks and challenges
The miniatures are done and we have them. All we need to do is ship them to our backers so this should be a simple kickstarter for us to finish.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
