Panda Game Manufacturing, 32mm Miniatures, and Fresh Prototype

Elephant in the room, thy name is When’s The Relaunch. Weird name for an elephant, but I’ll address you anyway. We’ve got noses to grindstones and productivity flying. We won’t declare an exact date just yet, but the pieces are decisively coming together for an early October Kickstarter relaunch. You’ll know as soon as we’ve got an exact date locked in. And we haven’t forgotten about you, first run Early Birds. You’ll be the only ones we tell the exact time of the relaunch so you have the first shot at the fresh-out-the-oven new batch of Early Bird Specials.

The main theme of our Kickstarter campaign rework has been implementing feedback from our followers and backers. In keeping with that theme, we’ve made the decision to switch to 32mm miniatures. Our original plan for 54mm miniatures was well-intentioned, but thorough discussions with fellow board game enthusiasts have made us see the light. We’re making a game with highly detailed, high-quality miniatures. It’s imperative that those miniatures look great on the game board, but we also understand and respect miniature collectors’ request that their scale not clash with the rest of their collection. Rest assured we’ll still be demanding the same degree of character accuracy at this reduced scale.

For those interested, we’ll be releasing our .stl 3D render files for all of Turf War’s characters for free. You can use these files to 3D print miniatures of your favorite The Warriors characters at any scale. Just promise to send us pics when you do!

Also on the subject of miniatures, we’re supremely excited to announce that we’ll be working with Panda Game Manufacturing to produce The Warriors: Turf War. Panda’s team brings unparalleled experience and assurance of quality in the manufacturing of board games with immaculate miniatures. Even if you don’t know Panda by name, odds are good that you know of some games they’ve produced. Check out the list of their phenomenal projects here: http://pandagm.com/projects

Meanwhile, our artists have been cranking out new pieces at an alarming rate, and we’ve printed up a fantastic new Turf War prototype you’ll be seeing more of soon:

      @Krebstarr - A truly great suggestion! I'll be sure to pass it along. As always, feedback is greatly appreciated!

      Things are looking great guys ! Love the updated graphics. I do have one suggestion, but not sure how possible it would be at this juncture. The miniatures look a little bit static. That's to say the sculpts look as if they are standing still. Giving the minis a more dynamic stance would help them look more like they are ready to bop vs standing for a group picture. Keep up the great work!

      Sad to hear you wont be using 54mm models, but understand you have to appeal to the widest audience you can. Really looking forward to the re-launch.

      Definatly interested in the 3d stl. files. Would be great to have some Warrior figures standing on my gaming shelf next to your game when it is ready and delivered.
