About this project

Sailpower: Open-World Age of Sail Tabletop Miniatures
Sailpower: Open-World Age of Sail Tabletop Miniatures

For over 10 years, Sailpower's 15mm "fun scale" miniatures game has been enjoyed by hundreds of players at many, conventions. Now, Sea Dog Game Studios wants to take the game small scale, to 6mm. 

Sailpower ships, now in 6mm!
Sailpower ships, now in 6mm!

Our original Sailpower 2.0 15mm models were sculpted by game designer Brian Carnes and funded through KickStarter from backers just like you. This time around, Brian is collaborating with a master jeweler and wax sculptor to miniaturize his well received designs to the demand for smaller-scale ships to allow big games in a small space. We want you to have all the fun of our legendary big-scale convention games on any 6ft table.

If you just love our 15mm models, we have included a backer level just for our newer 15mm designs. Additionally, this campaign will launch a minor rules update that will include 50 new treasures, fishing rules, and a few typographical changes. 

 

What is SAILPOWER!
What is SAILPOWER!

Sailpower is a rules system that allows you to play the role of Captain or Commodore in the Age of Sail. By ”rules system” we mean that there are lots of optional rules you can opt to use. Those rules allow you to play anything from a small ship battle to a full-fl edged open world on your tabletop, complete with ports, exploration, combat, merchant trading, role play as many different historical factions and more.

Shipping!
Shipping!

Shipping will be charged after the campaign is over. We will contact you for payment (via Paypal) for the shipping fees. US Shipping: Shipping inside the US is expected to be between $10 and $20, depending on backer rewards. International Shipping: International shipping is expensive. Once we have new model cast and weighed, we will have a better idea of the costs involved for shipping internationally. At that point we will contact you, let you know we are ready to ship and then send you an additional bill for shipping.

We reserve the right to refuse shipment and refund any backers pledge amount from any country that does not respect US intellectual property laws. 

 

Risks and challenges

We already have the sculptor arranged, and she has already produced the first 3 model kits (8-Gun Flush Deck Sloop, 6-Gun Bermuda Sloop, 10-Gun Brigantine). While we have produced these 3 models, the cost of doing so is rather expense, and we need backer help to fund additional designs and scale the molding for production. With a successfully funded project, we do not see any issues with completing the sculpts and producing the necessary molds.

We may experience delays in production, but we feel that we have allowed enough time to produce enough kits to satisfy the rewards.

From a backer perspective, we certainly understand the desire to ensure that you are backing a reliable project. While we are a small studio, this is our second KickStarter campaign. Our first funded successfully with a similar goal, and was delivered on time. We have allowed a little extra time for this campaign, so that we don't have to limit the pledge levels (as we did in the first campaign).
