About

 ****     To everyone joining the campaign today, please make sure you take a look our FAQ section for how you can get this game, even without a 3D Printer    ****

We at Plastic Alchemy are super excited by the endless possibilities of 3D-print-and-play games, but a full gaming experience can't rely on 3D printing alone!   

Kordran Conflict combines high quality traditional components alongside 3D-printable .stl files. This game is so BIG it couldn't be sold as boxed game due to all the content we've made!

Our beta testing community has rigorously tested our models on many types of FDM printer including Ender 3, CR10, Prusa MKII, Anycubic i3 Mega and more.  We're really proud to say that our minis can print using STOCK 'Fine' quality settings on CURA 4.0.

We know 3D printing can be difficult.. so we've done a LOT of work to take away the headaches!

Free DEMO Samples

All our miniatures are designed by Fotis Mint -  check out his Patreon 

Our tiles, world map designs and graphics were designed by Clockspring. 

Steve Solomon worked tirelessly on the quality & print-ability of our designs

We've even found a way to offer the game for people WITHOUT 3D Printers  in our GAMER & RESIN backer tiers!

Over the last 2 years, we've spent hundreds of hours playtesting with many dedicated players to create what we feel is a truly unique game. We've already sculpted 15 original sci-fi miniatures, 10 stunning world tiles, designed a beautiful game board, an interlocking tile system, loads of unit cards, and a ruleset that is easy to learn and full of depth - but we need your help to keep it growing!

This Kickstarter will allow us to create more unit cards, more scenarios... and even 2 entirely new factions of minis as stretch goals. The more we raise, the more that you the backers can receive in this launch edition of Kordran Conflict!

Click to read 1st Edition Rulebook

  Battles use a streamlined turn-based system. Deploy and command your units on a 127 hex battle board laid out according to the scenario at hand.  

With thousands of possible action combinations, you'll need to find the right strategy to achieve victory.  There are over 20 actions available for your units, from basic movement and attacking, to pinning, disrupting, sacrificing, dodging, absorbing, scoping and many more. Use these to capture objectives, kill enemy units, change the shape of the battlefield and win the game!

One of the most unique mechanics in Kordran Conflict is how units can interact with and change the MODULAR BARRIERS that make up the map. This adds another layer to the game, where players can create new choke points, aggressively smash through the map and more.

In addition to the battles of Kordran Conflict, we're developing a world map for a longer, even more dynamic games. Players acquire scenario cards by winning battles, and then trade them for reinforcements in future battles, to construct buildings, and much more as we develop the game further.

More to come over the campaign!

The planet of Kordra lies far on the other side of the Milky Way.  It orbits far from it’s home star, the eighth planet in the system and the largest among its siblings.  Unlike Earth, its years are substantially longer, while its days last thirty-two hours.  The land is comprised of a single massive supercontinent, sharing its name with the planet itself, and spanning well over 30,000 miles.

Inhabiting Kordra are a mixture of humanoids comprised of various statures, cultures, technology, religions, and philosophies.  Over the past 2,000 years, the nations of Kordra have lived in a tenuous peace, mostly held together by economic interdependence.  However, these nations have never truly trusted one another, with many standoffs, skirmishes and engagements common over the decades.

The biggest deterrent from open war has been their shared borders which are long, open, and near impossible to defend.  In recent times however, there has been a change.  A series of violent earthquakes have begun tearing apart this giant landmass, forging the initial outlines of new continents yet to be formed.  

Where once the vast open lands between nations forced them to carefully consider aggression, these naturally formed borders have changed the staus quo, dissolving the fragile peace. Many territories are no longer properly connected to the nation which claims them, and many of these have valuable natural resources that are now hotly contested.

Hundreds of years ago, the Captious began to explore Kordra, traveling down the many rivers that flow from their homelands.  Tall and lean, possessed of great intelligence, charisma and ambition, the Captious soon learned the swiftest way to achieve their goals lied in ingratiating themselves to all abroad.  They would trade, gift, and charm their ways into the chambers of influence within their neighboring nations.  And, once there, they would steal away their knowledge, aware that the key to progress is technology.  And progress is the path to strength.

Ever since they first set forth from their homelands, they have driven forward in a single-minded pursuit of perfection.  And now, in the modern day, these physically weak but tremendously intelligent people boast the most advanced technology on Kordra, and a steely resolve to crush all those they deem beneath them should they cross .

As the Kordran continent begins to split, the Captious realize that they can no longer count on the rivers to bring them what they need to thrive.  They must move beyond being thought of as a charming riverfolk.  To begin taking what they need, rather than hoping they can talk the other nations into giving it willingly.  They must become a force to be feared.

Many years passed, the once great Empire of Halfox spread across all of Kordra.  Rooted in the ideals of honour, duty and excellence, the undoing of Hawl culture was how thinly it spread itself.  Disease led to unrest, and unrest led to a bloody decade long civil war.  In the end, the Halfox Empire was splintered into pieces.  Many of these new nations would try to establish a new Halfox Empire, only to flounder, the shard becoming a sort of no-man's land.  Those still loyal to the fallen empire retreated to the northern valleys, the birthplace of the nation.

For the past hundred years, they have thrived in these fertile lands.  They endeavor to live a humble, agricultural existence, determined to learn from the mistakes of the past.  Which is not to say they are without ambition or strength.  After all, those that sought to destroy the Empire are not gone, and the Halfox military is hardened, adept at turning back their attacks and raids.

With the start of the quakes, the Halfox realize they must reluctantly return to their empirical routes, at least to a degree.  While their valley is fertile, it is lacking in minerals and other natural resources required for the future.  And, even more concerning, such a naturally secure and fertile stretch of land could prove very tempting for other nations in these precarious times.  They must drive forth from their valley home and show strength, not cower behind the mountains.  While they have chosen a simpler life, that does not mean they have forgotten the power they commanded as an Empire, and the power they could command once again.

 The Temla are a nomadic tribe of religious fanatics, worshipping what they call ‘The Glow’, and what every other nation have identified as radioactive meteorites.  They travel freely along the vast continent of Kordra, briefly settling wherever they find these fallen iradiated stones.  

Most are weakened by these sky stones, and are destined to forever serve the strong.  Those who gain strength from radiation induced mutations, however, are revered and rise rapidly within their tribes.  However, this strength also typically brings with it madness and, more often than not, delusion and ambitions that would make the long dead Emperors of Halfox pale in comparison.  They have long been considered a formidable force across the continent.  Fierce warriors, whose mercenary armies have many times proven the deciding factors in many conflicts.

The other nations long learned the best way to deal with the Temla was to not deal with them at all.  If they came into their lands in pursuit of some fallen meteorite, let them.  They will settle for a time, before unearthing the stone and moving on.  However, with the splintering of the continent, the major nations have realized they can no longer do that.  With the Temla’s history of fighting for the highest bidder, they can no longer risk that another nation has hired them to infiltrate and attack.  As such, the Temla are forced to stake a claim, to found their own nation.  A nation built around their religion, an ideology that insists they find and liberate ‘The Glow’, wherever it might be found, and at any cost.

  Silent hunters of the forest. The Shik’aree home is a dense forest region, surrounded by tall mountains. Light is scarce in their forest, and within the twilight of their lands, a brutal ecosystem of animals and plants has evolved. Apex predators prowl through the trees with tremendously acute and pinpoint hearing.  As a result, the Shik’aree have adopted a silent, careful existence. The Shik’aree are a visual people, using sign language, art and graphics to communicate and navigate their environment. Living in settlements both above and below ground, there are few outside the tribes that have even seen Shik’aree, much less known one.    ** STRETCH GOAL **

Risks and challenges

There are 3 key areas of risk in this project which we'd like to address. Our core 5 man team + many helping hands have helped us assess and mitigate the risks below.

But first, one thing as gamers is extremely important to us - GAME DESIGN!

This game has been designed over 2 years, with many iterations, spanning hundreds of playtests with over 20 players. We've carefully considered and made changes to ensure it has a competitive, balanced foundation that we're so excited to build upon. We were very averse to feeling 'lucky' , we wanted players to feel smart.. and in that we believe we've achieved our goal.

3 AREAS

3D PRINTING & DIGITAL GOODS
Half of this project is providing you the backers with digital files that print easily on FDM & SLA 3D Printers.
95% of the .stl files presented on this Kickstarter page have already been created and test printed by a number of different beta testers around the world.

We are 100% confident we can deliver these digital goods by to all backers by November & digital stretch goals by March when all physical components are shipped!

GAME MANUFACTURE
This project also focuses on the manufacture and shipping of board game components.
85% of the final game components for manufacture/digital distribution are complete and have been proofed, costed and prototyped by our manufacturer in China, Board Game Maker.
We are operating a risk that we fall short of the volume price we have agreed with our manufacturer.
However, we have structured our campaign so that all backers will receive their physical game components, regardless of volume, so long as we hit our funding goal.

STRETCH GOALS
As a team, we created the final 3D components for Kordran Conflict over 6 months. As each new faction and game piece was designed, our team's efficiency and skill has risen. With raised funds, and thus more time available, we shall comfortably deliver stretch goals that we set for our delivery date of March 2020.
