Chain Attack wants to do a Battle Report of the Warmachine Weekend Masters final! Get cool stuff while sending us there!

About this project

Chain Attack wants to go to Warmachine Weekend!

Chain Attack is a podcast about Privateer Press's miniatures games WARMACHINE and HORDES. We discuss caster match-ups and battle reports. From time to time we invite guests on to play a game and talk about it afterwards. Chain Attack is hosted by Jay Larsen, Scott Wray and Trevor Christensen. We have been reporting on Warmachine and Hordes battles for almost a year now. Now we want to bring our fans something special. We want to go to Warmachine Weekend in St. Louis MO and report on the masters final.

Help us get to Warmachine Weekend!

Unfortunately the expense of going to Warmachine Weekend is prohibitive for us. So we are humbly asking for your help, but not without providing you with rewards for doing so.

Two Podcasts!

After Warmachine weekend we will be creating two podcasts. One episode will be a battle report on the Masters Final at Warmachine Weekend, hopefully with two guest hosts (the players from the final) and the second will be a bonus episode only available to backers of this Kickstarter project. This bonus episode will contain stories and outtakes from Warmachine Weekend. We want to share our experience with you.

Baby Seals Club!

We are creating a special fan club called the Baby Seals Club, and this is your opportunity to join! But how will your friends know your a member? We will be giving you special backer rewards to show your fealty to us.. er.. I mean.. to show your enthusiasm for Chain Attack! Our art for the Baby Seals Club was created by Tommie Kelly and will be featured on several items exclusively for this Kickstarter. We will not be making these items for anyone else or selling them at any other time.

The Art:

Items we will be making include:

  • Marble Ivory  or Gemini Red-White Dice with the Baby Seals Club art on the "6" side.
  • A grey baseball cap with the Baby Seals Club art in black on the front.
  • A white/grey T-Shirt with the Baby Seals Club art in black on the front.
  • A 18" club (mini-baseball bat) for baby seals to fight back with!

Unbound Podcast!

Additionally if someone chooses the UNBOUND backer level we will be playing an Unbound game of Warmachine/Hordes and create a special podcast episode reporting on the game. The backer will choose the match-up as long as it involves factions we have 200 points of. Jay's 200 pt factions are Cryx and Legion, Trevor's are Trolls, Khador, and Skorne (sorry but Scott doesn't own 200 points in either of his factions). The backer could optionally be on the show as well playing his own 200 points worth of something vs. one of us, but he would have to pay his own travel expenses.

Live Guest Host!

If you choose to back our Live Guest Host reward level we will fly you in to Idaho Falls, ID and put you up in a hotel. You will spend 2 days with us playing Warmachine/Hordes. The first day we will set up a battle report, play the game, and 'cast on the battle of your choice. You will be able to choose which host will be your opponent and you will be able to choose the scenario. You can do the intro and the top 5 as well if you wish. Additionally on the second day we will have a tournament at Gameopolis/Discount Games in the format of your choosing for you to participate in (we will even try to convince MenothJohn to come). Finally we will wine and dine you, at Idaho Fall's most exclusive restaurants! (LMAO, sorry I couldn't keep a straight face on that last point.. Idaho Falls doesn't really have any high class dining, but we will do our best to make your ambiance sufficiently awesome).

How can you help spread the word?

We would love nothing more than help from you to spread the word about not only this Kickstarter but about our podcast. So to help you in this exercise we have created this forum signature image which you can put in your signature on the Privateer Press forums or any other place you want to. We have two images, one for people who just want to spread the word: 

and one for those who want to spread the word and proclaim they have backed this project:

Additionally don't be afraid to spread the word on Twitter, Facebook, or whatever other social media you choose (but make sure your not breaking their terms of service first!).

Overfunding Achievements!

So what happens once we surpass our goal? We will upgrade some of the things for the backing levels as we reach each additional over-funding goals. Here are those goals and specifically what we will do if we reach them:

$10,000: We will go back to our artist Tommie and demand that he make the Chain Attack Seal colorful! Full color art will be added to the shirt and hats. Additionally with Full Color art we may add a second or third available color for the shirts/hats for you to pick from (depending on number of backers). Full Color art isn't available for the dice and mini-bats sorry =(

$15,000: We will head to a second convention as voted upon by the fans and report on that con's major final as well! Adepticon, Templecon, Duelcon, Gencon are all options (though some of those would require us doing it in 2013).

$20,000: Shit our drawers! No, seriously...

FAQ

  • We spent a lot of time estimating the costs involved and have a pretty elaborate spreadsheet estimating the number of backers we would need to make this happen. We are having to pay Kickstarter and Amazon payments fees (8-10% total), we are flying all three hosts to St. Louis and putting them in a hotel for the duration, we are paying for art, dice, shirts, bats, and hats, and we are paying for shipping for all of the items. In summary we wanted to provide a return to the backers of the project other than just sending us to Warmachine Weekend, and to do so the overall cost went up. We are confident in our estimates.

    Last updated:
  • Yes, you can. Just add 15$ per 6 additional dice you want to your backer level and send me a note of what your intentions are. If we get enough dice orders I will send out a survey and find out who wants a second color and get two different types of dice and let everyone choose which color/set or combination of colors they want.
