What is AvP?
The Alien, Predator and AvP franchise is a highly successful science fiction horror movie series (spanning a massive 10 films) about the battle between humankind and two malevolent extra-terrestrial species; the Aliens and the Predators. The franchise has spawned novels, comics, toys, clothing, computer & video games and now this, AvP The Miniatures Game…The Hunt Begins…
What Xenomorphs (Aliens), Colonials and Predators will the AVP Miniatures Game include?
If you have seen or read about an Alien or Predator type, piece of equipment or human or cyborg concept in any Alien, Predator or AvP film, comic, novel, computer or video game, toy or any other cannon and its cool it is likely that it will be part of AvP The Miniature Game range either now or in the near future.
What is the AvP The Miniatures Game.
The Boxed Game AvP – The Hunt Begins is a self-contained gaming experience, a fusion of mission and narrative driven Board Game and Table Top War Game. A family game where 1 or more players can sit down and play through their own narrative and develop their own characters and objectives over many inter-linked games. Or players can sit down and play a ‘free for all’ with games like ‘Survival’, ‘Last human/Alien/Predator standing’, ‘capture the objective’ etc. filling an hour or two of your evening or raining Sunday afternoon.
But equally AvP – The Hunt Begins is a portal into the AvP Wargame, which will allow you to play as a Battalion of Colonial Marines, an entire nest of Aliens or a Hunt of Predators. The free AvP Wargame will be available to download and will be available in hardback form when the appropriate stretched goal is unlocked.
How does the Board Game AvP The Hunt Begins play?
- 1+ players (yes, you can play or your own!)
- D20 Dice System - Narrative and Mission Based
- Alternative Model Activation (I go, you go, she goes, my next model, your next, etc.)
- Models gain ‘Experience’ as the narrative progresses which unlocks new special skills etc.
- 30 Missions cards with 3 unique missions per faction, each has to complete its own goal to win.
- Random events and objectives represent the environment and its effects. Lights or gravity may fail, acid burns could make the floor or duct liable to collapse or an explosion could open or close avenues of escape.
- Tactical Cards for each faction
- Longevity – Expansion packs with new characters, Aliens, Predators and equipment
- Additionally there will be a ‘free play mode’ (Last Man Standing, Capture the Flag, Defend the Post and many others)
How does the AvP Wargame work?
- 2+ players - D20 based on the Prodos Wargame System
- Alternative Squad Activation (you go I go etc.)
- Create your own special characters etc.
- Army construction – each model has its own points value dependent on the Model type and experience level! (levels from 1 to 5)
- Narrative games allow characters and models to gain ‘Experience’ to level-up
- 50 Missions cards (at three levels)
- Tactical Cards for each factions (120 in total).
- Scalability (1 to 100s of models per side) so you can play for example 1 Predator against a Platoon of Colonial Marines or a whole Battalion of Marines vs a Hive of Aliens)
- Longevity – New Alien, Predator and Marine types with special rules, mission and tactical cards will be introduced over the coming months and years.
And including a Short story in AvP The Hunt Begins by the franchises’ ϋber-novelist Steve Perry
How will I get my AVP The Hunt Begins game?
In North and South America we have asked the US-based CMON to distribute the final product for us. This means we can ensure you the NA and SA pledger do not get hit with import duties (we, Prodos Games will handle them when we ship all the NA and SA pledge rewards to CMON's distribution hub in the US). If you would rather Prodos sends to you directly we can do that. Just let us know when you complete your pledge manager. In Europe and the rest of the World Prodos Games will handle distribution.
How do I get the KS Exclusive version of AVP the Hunt begins?
Take a look at the images below and at the levels on the right to decide what you want. Click the button and follow the instructions. There are also a lot of exciting expansions or 'add-ons' you can add to your pledge. If you want to do this, add the extra £s to your pledge amount in the Pledge Manager and we'll send you a survey after the Kickstarter ends by email to confirm the entire bundle you want !
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
We have significant backing financially and an experienced team of rules designers, artists, 3D designers and model makers. As a team we are highly experienced in logistics and manufacturing and have learnt a lot about expectation and delays having already completed a highly successful Kickstarter campaign for our first project: Warzone Resurrection.
Anytime is the £10 Pledge added free to all other pledges.
All add ons are per pledge, so if you have pledged at 'We're in the Pipe' level or higher you get 1 of each free add-on included. Except free Facehuggers which are per box.
If I pledge at level X and therefore get Y Facehuggers and then add a 2nd 3rd or 4th box do I get 0, 5 or Y facehuggers in the extra boxes?
No it is a KS exclusive version
Not in the Box Set. We may sell some of them as expansion sets later, but which and when is to be defined. It won't be before early 2015.
No it is a thank you to each KS pledger at 'We're in the pipe' or higher
At the end of the KS we will send out a questionnaire. You can tell us then.
Postage is expensive £10 will in the main only cover a small part of the shipping costs. In the US we have partnered with CMON, but we still have to pay their shipping costs as well as the cost of shipping to the US and the import duty.
£75 no mater what pledge level
Yes you can, we will collect the information when the questionnaire goes out and £10 no matter how many pledge levels you go for
Youll get one per designated pledge
From the films no, from the expanded universe we are looking into it
Pledge for the highest single pledge you want and then add the extra £ for the others. We will then define via the pledge manager at the end of the KS
By latest end of March
When they are ready but before the end of March
Once we have approval we will share
In time possibly, as part of the KS no
Im afraid that both are only available as faction specific
