About this project

 Dominion of the Gods video demo.

Comfy Chair Games is proud to introduce its latest creation, Dominion of the Gods! The legends of mythology have been pitted against themselves for eternity… now they must unify and fight for worldly dominion. Who will reign supreme? The answer is up to you! Will you choose the side of the Norsemen leading giants of ice and hideous trolls into battle, or the Greek pantheon with such iconic figures as Medusa, the Minotaur and legendary figures such as Achilles?

 Each quick start box will contain:

 • 1 heroic scale God model on a 40 mm base 

• 1 large monster model on a 50 mm base 

• 2 mythological monsters on 40 mm bases 

• 1 legendary hero on a 40 mm base 

• 4 attack dice • 4 defense dice 

• 1 power dice 

• A copy of the quick start rules 

• 6 stat cards for the models 

 If you do the math, this means that each model comes in at less than $11.00!  

New incentive!  

 We have just increased the number of models you get in one box set from five models to six models. The models vary depending on box set, so be sure to look at the box set you are interested in! Pledges already placed will automatically be upgraded to six models per box. 

**The Greek box will include a Cyclops and the special edition Cyclops with the alternate weapon configuration created for this kick starter deal.

** The Norse box will include two Frost Giants.

** The Celtic box will include two Fomori Warriors.

** The Lovecraft box will include three Mi-go.

This is a Kickstarter exclusive price available only until the end of this campaign. Important notice: all models are supplied unassembled and unpainted. Models are made in metal or resin and metal. Painted models shown are for reference. These models paint up very easily, even for the beginner painter. 

 Comfy Chair Games has developed an easy-to-learn and intuitive dice system that will have you playing the game in minutes, without the need to continually reference a rulebook. A quick start battle typically lasts twenty minutes. The supplied stat cards make any necessary recordkeeping simple and easy. Comfy Chair Games currently has the quick start rules and box sets 70% complete for two mythological factions – the Norse and the Greek. In supporting this project, our hope is to not only release these two quick start box sets, but also to fund other quick start boxes in other mythos, such as the Celtic, Hindu or Lovecraft.

 In addition, while exciting play is immediately available with the box sets described above, it is our intention to also expand these sets with supporting models that will be released in the future in order to expand depth and complexity of play. Your response here, will guide us on interest in the developing of these new sets. Comfy Chair Games needs your help as we have exciting work to be done! Help us reach our goal – or even exceed it – and we can bring to life the exciting world of Dominion of the Gods! If you support us in reaching our goals, you can expect a delivery date before May 2013. Take a look our some of our concept art and completed models below!

The Celtic Models!

Please be advised that we did not artificially short the boxes so that we could add extra stretch goals and make it “seem” like you’re getting more. We decided from the start that all sets would be five models and we are sticking to this vision.

The collectors addition Tiamat Coin!
The collectors addition Tiamat Coin!

In the early stages of planning for this game we had this Amazon sculpted up by Vlad Junger. We had her in storage until such a time came that we could get the moral troops into production for this game. We decided to offer a little bonus here. This Amazon warrior will probably not be available for the next two years, but with this kickstarter we will include an à la carte option to purchase her for only six dollars!!! In the picture above she is posed on a 40 mm base, she will be sold with a 30 mm base and no stat card. This model will not be available unless we make our funding, we added her to the kickstarter for two reasons. Reason #1: people were curious if we would keep a high sculpting standard to this line. This little gal should answer that question. Reason #2: a lot of people were wondering why everything is on 40 mm and 50 mm bases. The answer is, the units of mortal troops will be on 40 mm bases. This helps make the gods and heroes look more impressive.

 Above is a picture of the two alternate weapons that will be sculpted onto the limited edition cyclops arms. The mace will be in his right hand and a knife in his left with the blade pointing out of the bottom of his hand.

A new development to the QuickStart purchases!!!

As some of you may have seen, one of you has pledged a $5000 mark to help us create a new box set. The contributor has chosen to create a QuickStart box set based off of the works of H.P. Lovecraft. We are replacing the previous Lovecraft box set with this one and moving this one up so that you have an opportunity to pledge for this great box set!

 This box set will contain the following models:

Yog-Sothoth (50 mm base)

 Mi-go with lightning gun (40 mm base)

Mi-go with plasma ejector (40 mm base)

Shoggoth (40 mm base)

Keziah Mason with Brown Jenkin  (40 mm base/possible extra 30 mm base for Brown)

 This box set is being made available immediately for interested parties to pledge. The sculpt for the Mi-Go has already been assigned to sculptor Tim Prow who has just finished the Achilles model for us. As you can see from Tim's previous work, we are in for a really cool sculpt!

 My hope is that we will be adding more to this list. The final decision on that is yours.

$40,000 A second God for each force will be offered as a purchase option at the end of the Kickstarter campaign. These will be Ares for the Greeks and Loki for the Norse! These models will be offered for a Kickstarter special price of $7.00 a piece (well below the MSRP!)

$50,000 If we should reach this goal, we will produce a quick start set based on Hindu Mythology. This quick start set will be offered as a purchase option for you at the end of the Kickstarter campaign for the price of $55. 

$65,000 If we reach this stretch goal, we will produce a Chinese quick start set that will be based on Sun Wu Kung (The Monkey King) and offered as a purchase option for you at the end of the Kickstarter campaign for the price of $55.

$85,000 TBA

 Depending upon interest, more stretch goals may be added. Show me that you want it and I will take it under advisement. Once again, we at Comfy Chair Games are truly thankful for your support. We realize that we would not be able to make these games that we love so much if it was not for you. You have our eternal gratitude… every last one of you. Thank you!

Risks and challenges

Creating a miniatures game can be a very daunting task. You must have the initial capital in order to start the project off. This is the money you use for artists, sculptors, writers, graphic designers, game designers, packaging, production costs and a metric ton of other small costs that eat away at your bottom line. If it was easy to get rich in the miniature games industry, everyone would be doing it. The truth is, there is only a decent handful of people doing this. I am sure everybody has different reasons for making games, the reason we at Comfy Chair Games continue making games is simple. There is no better feeling on earth then to watch a group of people playing a game we made, laughing and having a good time.

We are a small company trying to compete with the big dogs. This does not mean our ideas are not as good as theirs, it only means they have more money to spend on advertising!

We are not like some companies who use kickstarter as a pre-order tool. We are serious about this project. We are passionate about this project. This is our first kickstarter and we need your help getting this very fun and exciting game out on the market.

You will get to collaborate on what models go into the quick start box set! (As long as it fits the basic formula we set forth. 1 God, 1 large model, 2 medium base models, 1 hero model.) You will get to help design the models by collaborating with the artist. You will get to see pictures of the "greens" as soon as the sculptors send the initial images for final approval. You will have input as to what spells and abilities each model possesses. You will get to help play test the models you have collaborated on. Your name will appear on the packaging of the quick start set (listed as: with collaboration and special thanks to “your name.”) These are the boxes that will be on store shelves. In addition, you will receive 4 sets of the quick start set you have helped to design. Important: Please be advised that the bidders at this level will receive no financial income or royalties from collaboration on this quick start set and Comfy Chair Games reserves all rights and royalties to the quick start set.
