War of Wonders is a unique skirmish wargame set in an alternate, grim World War II fought by Superheroes. We started this Kickstarter project to produce a brand new line of miniatures and a rule-set.

THE MINIATURES

Here below we show you the first batch of figures that were sent to the caster after some modifications.

War of Wonders will feature high-quality white metal 30mm miniatures produced by Greebo Games (greebo-games.com)

Almost all our miniatures will be 3D sculpted and cast in high-quality white metal. Even the most basic troops will be multi-pose and will have multiple head options. You will be able to further personalize them with the provided additional accessories: from sidearms and backpacks to hand grenades and, of course, heavy weapons.

THE BACKGROUND

Nazi Germany declares war on Europe, and its army is unstoppable. Prodigious beings appear on the battlefields to support the Wehrmacht's efforts: flying men shower flames upon the enemy; women wearing iron masks punch through tank armour; bloodthirsty beasts devour entire regiments.


The world is about to succumb to the might of the Third Reich. Aaron Spiegelmann, a Jewish scientist who escaped from the Mauthausen concentration camp, is the only hope for the Allied Forces to stop the Nazis. Spiegelmann is the genius who created the Wunderkammer, a new technology that allowed the Germans to create real superheroes with extraordinary powers. 

With his guidance, the US Army launches Project H.O.P.E. in order to produce their own genetically modified humans to be deployed on the battlefields. As the war rages on and every army creates its own Meta-Humans and war machines, Natural Prodigies, unscrupulous Adventurers and even secretive groups of Warlocks step into battle.

From the European battlefields to the Pacific Islands, a conflict like never before is unleashed and spreads with no boundaries: humanity will forever remember it as the first War of Wonders.

If you're at a lower pledge level, or at any Early Bird level, you can upgrade to Captain at any moment just by adding to your pledge level a purchase equal to the difference between your pledge and the Captain pledge level. For example, if you're currently at Lieutenant level, you can upgrade to Captain by purchasing 45,00 € or more worth of additional miniatures to your pledge. You'll then receive all the benefits that will be unlocked for Captain level.

Attention! You can also upgrade if you are an Early Bird!

Risks and challenges

The first challenge will be a timely delivery of the miniatures, worldwide. If you pledged for this project you will surely want to receive your miniatures as soon as possible to start your War of Wonders games with your friends. That's why we'll start the production of the miniatures during the Kickstarter campaign, as soon as we hit the initial goal and the project is funded. We already signed an agreement with a reliable shipping company for safe and easy-to-track shipping to all our pledgers worldwide. Their prices are very competitive, so you won't have to pay unfair shipping costs to receive your miniatures.

Creating a War of Wonder players community will be another challenge. There are many tabletop WW II wargames already, but War of Wonders has a pretty unique flavour with its extensive alternate-history background and the mix of ucronic technology and superhuman beings inspired by Golden Age comics. War of Wonders will have this additional weird twist that will allow you not only to re-enact the most famous WW II battles with your favourite Meta-Humans and new tactical possibilities, but also gives you the chance to ignore the historical setting if you so wish, and create your own missions. The game rules are easy to understand and fun to play, with a basic set of rules meant for new players and an advanced set of rules for more expert players, meant to add more historical realism to your battles.
By creating a community we intend to open an online forum to give all the players a place to meet each other, get in touch and organize their games. Outside of the Internet, we also want to support any players' initiative for organized games, like leagues and tournaments, and provide coordination for such events.

Taking the game to the shops would be another interesting challenge. Once this project is funded, the game will be available on our online shop but we know that many of you have a favourite tabletop and wargame shop and we want to get our game on their shelves. We're discussing with distributors about this possibility, and we'll keep you updated on any news.
