The Miniatures

What’s a miniatures game without miniatures? We’ve teamed up with David Okum to produce papercraft miniatures specifically for HAGGIS. Five iconic characters will be available initially, with more coming as stretch goals are met. You will be able to get started right away by printing out as many paper models as you need and not have to worry about painting new figures!

About the Author

Matthew Byers, also known as "Fez Sinister", is the author of the Graveyard of Heroes RPG and owner of Fez Sinister Games. Over the years he has served as president, treasurer, secretary and terrain master of the E'ville Knights game club where he originally presented the rules for HAGGIS to a bemused crowd. Every so often people still ask him if he is ever going to publish that silly golf game of his.

Risks and challenges

The rulebook is all written and layout is nearly complete. This is not my first book so I am aware of what needs to get done in order to complete the project. For the above reasons this Kickstarter campaign should be considered low risk.

At this point in the project I just need money to make sure all the artists working on the project get paid. If I don't receive commissioned art in a timely manner it is possible the delivery date may have to be pushed back but that is unlikely because I have built in plenty of extra time into the project schedule.
