Blackwater Gulch: Minions & Monsters

$12,154

Howdy Pardners, and welcome to Blackwater Gulch! This town is growing fast, and these new heroes, villains and minions need a gang leader like you to take charge!

With your help, we hope to fund many new miniatures to add to your gangs. There will be 3-man Minion Packs, along with large Monsters and a few solo miniatures along the way too. In addition to funding these new miniatures, we also plan to invest in our own high res HD DLP 3D printer which, while expensive, will cut down on our ongoing production costs in the future.

We just finished delivering our previous successful campaign, launching the second edition of the game. Click here if you would like to download the basic rules, or visit our website at SkirmishGames.com to learn more about Blackwater Gulch and the Gangfight Game System.

Help us out, it's easy! Just select a pledge option on the right to show your level of interest. You can just pick up 1 pack, or get them all! If you've never experienced Blackwater Gulch, our Newcomer pledge is the perfect place to start. It includes our Hardcover Rulebook, Loot Cards and Starter Packs for two factions, as well as two minion packs to match, all at a discounted price - a perfect 2-player starter bundle.

Scale and Size

Here is a photo of the production miniatures for the Unsung, along with some other miniatures and a ruler for size reference. Note that they may seem a bit taller due to the optional base inserts shown. Our miniatures measure roughly 32mm to the eye when standing straight up.

Minion & Monster Packs

The menu below shows all of the new minion packs and monsters available in this campaign. Each Minion Pack or Monster costs $18 for Contributors, or $15 for Collector and Newcomer backers. We will add to this list throughout the campaign if we are able to unlock new stretch goals after the campaign funds.

Solo Miniatures, Rules & Starter Sets

In the list below, you will find extra items that aren't included with our standard pledge levels, including a solo miniatures, faction starter sets and a rulebook & loot card bundle. If you would like to receive any of these items, just increase your pledge to cover the costs listed below. Don't forget, you can add on any additional Minion or Monster pack - $18 each for Contributors, and $15 each for Collectors and Newcomers.

Shipping Information

Shipping costs are not included in the pledge amounts. Instead, you will be able to pay for shipping separately in our Pledge Manager after the campaign ends. This is the easiest way to handle shipping since many backers will be receiving different items and there won’t be a fixed shipping cost for all.

We offer hassle-free worldwide shipping, and in most cases you won’t need to worry about customs charges or VAT (if you are charged a customs fee in the end, we will reimburse you). Shipping costs will depend upon your location, and costs are based on weight. Our packs of miniatures, even metal ones, are relatively light, but the Newcomer pledge may weigh a bit more due to the hardcover rulebook. All packages will ship from the USA, and all of our products are made and/or printed in the USA too.

For shipping to the USA, we expect Contributor and Collector pledges to cost around $8-12, Newcomers should be around $10-15. All other countries, expect a minimum $15 for Contributor and Collector pledges, and over $20 for Newcomer pledges. Please note these are prices are just guesses and could change by the time we are ready to ship, but we will always do our best to make shipping as easy and affordable as possible.

Risks and challenges

We've run multiple Kickstarter campaigns, and every one has been a learning experience. We feel (and hope) that we have the bugs worked out and now can proceed with a campaign structure that will fit for us going forward, to help fund new and cool miniatures for Blackwater Gulch and other future gameworlds.

Shipping, especially internationally, will always have issues to deal with. Rates change without warning, global events can slow things down, and we never know who is going to be hit by custom's charges until the very end. We have added an extra $1000 to our funding goal to cover any unforeseen charges we need to cover at the last minute, such as sudden taxes or lost packages.

We look forward to running a smooth and straightforward campaign, and can't wait to get these new miniatures created! Thank you for your support!
