So, what's all this fuss about?
Bad Roll Games is a small Spanish company formed up by three friends, that has been working for more than a year on the addictive tabletop game Punkapocalyptic. During this time we have put on the market several high-quality and detailed miniatures for our first three factions, Gangers, Mutards and Junkers. For this last one faction we ran a highly successful Indiegogo campaign, after which we were able to deliver the miniatures one month ahead of the scheduled date and it was chosen by readers and followers as the Best 2015 Crowdfunding Campaign at the FanHammer hobby blog. You can check our miniatures out at our webpage, where you will also be able to download the rulebook and gang sheets for free, or visit our Facebook or Twitter accounts.
Basically our game is a fast-paced skirmish showdown between rival gangs, played with 5 to 10 30 mm scale miniatures in a post-apocalyptic, barren and desolate environment known as the Wasteland. If you are into skirmish games, wargames in general, apocalyptic settings or just like to paint superb minis made by some of the best sculptors in the market these days, this game is for you. Don't hesitate to visit our website to know more about the background of this setting, read a bunch of short stories, watch some cool drawings and maps, or feast your eyes with the miniature galleries.
Why a crowdfunding campaign?
A crowdfunding campaign like this will allow us to release a whole new band, the Black Blood Children, for our game at once. That way we will have the basic four playable factions for our rulebook.
We can wholeheartedly promise that this crowdfunding will be a true crowdfunding. This is not a pre-sale for miniatures we already have in production, or anything like that. All the money will be used to pay for modelling, production, painting… so this fourth faction can become a reality.
We have to thank RN Estudio, which has agreed to make some of the 3D designs for the miniatures in advance, so you can see what they will look like; for the rest we can show you concept drawings of what we want them to be. But we are not newcomers to this market either, so you can check the miniatures we have released so far and see for yourselves that the final result is completely up to the expectations or even beyond. We are lucky to have RN Estudio in charge of the computer renders, and for the production and painting processes we work with the internationally known José Palomares' Bigchild Creatives team.
Nice, but why should I put my money on it?
We are offering the Black Blood Children miniatures at a special price for trusting us, as well as an exclusive "Grumpy Pet" miniature. But besides, in case you didn't know us from before, you will be able to get any miniature from our catalogue at a discounted price. And once we reach our main target you will continue to unlock some juicy extras, most of which you will be getting for free with most of the pledge levels, starting with a wicked miniature of Cunilingus Igni, fearsome leader of the Black Blood.
The bulk of this money will be used to pay for the modelling, production and painting processes. And if we get more money pass the minimum, it will be invested in unlockable goodies. If at the end we still have any remaining cash available, it would be spent to keep Punkapocalyptic growing and moving forward with new products.
All designs, modelling and production processes will be carried out in Spain with the best materials and professionals available. Although miniatures are sold unassembled and unpainted, we will also use the money to have them painted at pro level for our own use (ie. promotional pictures, advertising and model packaging).

Let's get down to it!
You want to see the models we want to fund, and see them you shall! The first two of them have already been 3D designed by the awesome team at RN Estudio, who have kindly made them in advance of this campaign so we can show them to you almost finished.
This is the first miniature RN Estudio has rendered for us after the campaign was funded. So you can see your greens are being put to good use!
The rest of the eight basic miniatures for this faction are still in early sketch stage, but RN Estudio is ready to convert them to 3D renders and send them to BigChild Creations for the mass metal casting. So what you see in this drawings will become the final miniature you will get in your hands, as we have always done!
And of course there is also an exclusive miniature for this campaign, which will never be sold in stores or our website. The fearsome pet of this band, the lovely kitten which seems to have emerged from the very depths of Tex'co's Hell, the Grumpy Pet.
1 € Pledge level - Support the Wasteland
Maybe you are the last good-hearted Wastelander out there. Whether you are a successful scavenger or just shit money, we really don't care. A bullet is a bullet and we need all the ones we can get! Thanks a lot for believing in us and throwing a couple bucks (or quids, or eypos, or whatever currency you use) in our general direction. We would say we love you, but we are tough Wasteland guys, so we won't do it.
8/9 € Pledge level - Rummagin' through trash
You are just looking for a piece or two from our stockage, and that's perfectly fine. If you don't want to get a full Black Blood Children band or you want to add extra miniatures to any other pledge level, pick your choice of individual miniatures here. Through this option you can also choose any of the new minis unlocked in this campaign, if you don't have a pledge level with access to extras or just want to have more or them.
Most of the Punkapocalyptic minis are 8 € each, except the Mutard Pit Beast, any Bike and Crazy Mel, which are 9 €.

When we reach the 23000 € mark, all pledge levels with access to unlockable extras will get 6 awesome markers made in high-quality resin by Valquiria Studio.

Social Goal - Free Stretch Goals add-ons for Wasteland hoarders
If at the end of the campaign we get to 35+ backers with the Wasteland hoarder pledge level, they will also get for free the unlocked add-on miniatures. Yes, all the stretch goals and add-on unlocked miniatures for FREE.
If you already have paid for any add-on miniature you can leave them until the 35+ backers with the Wasteland hoarder pledge level are met, so the total amount of money won't decrease and we will be able to unlock even more goodies.
Social Goal - Free 2x Additional Martabbit Poses
If at the end of the campaign we get to 200+ backers with access to unlockable extras, they will get for free two new martabbit models in different poses we are already developing. Yes, that would mean you will get 3 different critters. If you are playing the Punka scenario "The hunt" you will need 6 of these sneaky creatures, so you will thank for having three different poses.
If you already have them as an add-on you can leave them until the 200 backers with access to extras are met, so the total amount of money won't decrease and we will be able to unlock even more goodies.
You already have a lot of miniatures to choose from, but maybe you want to take something extra from Punkapocalyptic to take home. You can add as much add-ons as you want to your pledge total. When the campaign ends, you will have the chance to tell us what do you exactly want.
Are you sure this is how the final product will look?
Quite sure, my dear friend! As we have previously said, last year we ran a successful campaign on Indiegogo for the Junkers faction where we also showed only early sketches and concepts for the miniatures, and the final production items where perfect matches for them! But you don't have to take our word! Just see it for yourselves!
About the dreaded shipping costs
All packages will be shipped from Spain, by signed for mail and with tracking number. Kickstarter will add the following amount to your total pledge to cover the shipping costs:
- Spain: 5 €
- European Union: 9 €
- Rest of the World: 13 €
To keep these shipping costs to a minimum, all miniatures, extras, bases, markers or anything else included in this campaign will be sent to our backers WITHOUT any type of blister or box that could increase them due to its bulk or additional weight. If you want to receive your goodies in their proper box or packaging, please tell us so at the end of the campaign, but be aware that you will have to pay for the additional handling and shipping costs.
Risks and challenges
Our previous work backs us up. Last year we ran another crowdfunding campaign with great success and all our backers were utterly satisfied. We are a firm working on the miniature market for several years now and those companies we collaborate with deserve our greatest trust.
Our aim is to be able to serve all the miniatures, items and extras unlocked in this campaign within a deadline of six months time from its end. That is, we expect you to have all your nice goodies for the beginning of the new year. We have deliberately set quite a generous deadline for this project to compensate any unforeseen mishap, but being honest, if everything goes as expected we hope to deliver all the stuff even sooner.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
