The Lemonade Wars
Introducing The Lemonade Wars, a brand new tabletop skirmish game with an accompanying range of miniatures. The Lemonade Wars range will cover a variety of different roles typically portrayed in the Pulp/Gangster period with all of the roles filled by anthropomorphic animals.
Yes, that is right: Law Enforcement and Gangsters....with tails!
The miniatures in the Lemonade Wars ranhe are approximately 28mm to the eyeline, with some species creating slight differences in height and bulk, but nonetheless making them instantly compatible with existing scenery collections and readily available die-cast cars of the 'period'.
Episode One: Anim-Al Capone!
The Lemonade Wars!
Lemonade has become the Curse of Modern Animal Society!
Creatures everywhere are becoming Hooked!
The President has been called upon to take action!
It is the year 920 in the United States of Animalia and the President, Hedgerow Wilson, has passed the Act Of Prohibition. This unpopular Act aims to oversee the prevention by law of the manufacture, distribution and sale of Lemonade in all of its forms.
While Prohibition has been successful in reducing the volume of Lemonade consumed, it is unfortunately also responsible for an outbreak of underground, organised gangs and widespread criminal activity involving the illegal production, distribution and sale of this most sought after beverage.
From the Squeeze-E'Zees of the Big Smoke to the rural Squeezers of the Wide Country, production of Lemonade has not stopped, it has simply become a lucrative underground industry which has seen the rise of many criminal organisations making a tidy profit from its illegal availability.
Of course, with the amount of money involved, when two gangs meet, it is not always pleasant! An encounter can quickly escalate into extreme violence, with innocent bystanders often caught in the crossfire.
This has become a serious problem, and a battle that appears to be causing the Authorities many problems.
Problems with no end in sight...
The Lemonade Wars have begun!
The Lemonade Wars will see players controlling various different gangs, or Factions, who are all fighting their way to the top of the heap in an attempt to become the leading provider of Lemonade in their community.
A gang consists of various different types of character, armed in various different ways, with skills and abilities dependant on their Species and Class.
Many different animal species will be available to players of the game along with various different types of character Class reflecting their role within the Faction. A huge number of combinations will be possible to craft the 'Gang' of your choosing.
To see the Game itself gradually being brought to fruition, copy and paste the link below into your browser to see where they are at right now:
There will be regular additions, hopefully on a daily basis while the campaign is running.
There are many different Factions taking part in the Lemonade Wars, encompassing several different groups of Law Enforcement representing the 'Authorities' and various Factions of the 'Underworld' representing the different 'Gang' types attempting to control their portion of the industry.
This initial campaign will see the introduction of two starting Factions, each representing a different side of 'The War'.
Taking the side of the Authorities' will be 'The Law'....
Whilst the other side of the 'debate' and representing the a darker side of society is 'The Underworld'....
Which side will YOU choose???
During the course of this campaign there are a number of Stretch Goals that may be Unlocked. If they are they will become available as either Freebies added to Pledges or they may be purchased as Add-Ons to your Pledge.
Stretch Goal #1: Jammed Weapon Markers are being added to ALL physical Pledges as a 'Thank You!' for your support.
Jammed Weapon Markers: Free to all Backers with physical Pledges
Two Markers will be added to 'The Law' and 'The Criminals' Pledge levels, with five added to the 'Both Sides of the Story' and 'Early Bird Masters' Pledge Levels and ten Markers added to the 'Both Sides of the Story, Twice Over!' Level.
Markers will be supplied unpainted and unbased.
Safety Notice: The miniatures featured in this campaign are not toys. They are made of white metal that contains a small amount of lead and are therefore unsuitable for small children.
Please also note that the miniatures are provided unpainted and unbased.
Risks and challenges
Blind Beggar Miniatures have already run a lot of Kickstarter campaigns, 30 of which have successfully funded and have been fulfilled well within the time frame specified at the the time of launch.
I see no reason why this should be any different as the figures have already been sculpted and master moulds made to help eliminate as much risk of delays as is possible.
This project is to fund the production moulding and casting of the First Episode in The Lemonade Wars range.
I have factored in extra time for any delay in casting, so every pledge should be fulfilled in time.
The only problem would be if the Prohibition Board took exception, but I am hoping that they do not notice as they have more important matters to deal with.....
