---------------------------------------------------------------

From the depths of the deepest, darkest swamps of Relicia, the Cult of C’thu emerges. Its origins seeped in betrayal of the most heinous kind.

Lord C’thu commands his minions from the shadows, whispering his unholy wishes into the eager ears of his chosen avatars. One of these devotees has surpassed all others in his pursuit of power and has assumed the mantle of leader and with it the authority to conduct the affairs of the cult on behalf of his malevolent master, he his known as Xavius Prime and from the glades of the Krakenshearth he plots to bring a terrible plague of madness upon all of Relicia.

Relics is a tabletop wargame in the 28mm scale. Making use of the glorious D6, Relics uses the rolling of doubles as the main core mechanic for determining successes in combat. We may be wrong but we don't know of another game that used double for successes. Coupled with an alternating activation sequence, Relics is a fast and fun game where players aren't sitting around waiting for their go for long!

 You can see the current, available range of models over on our store here. You can also check out our YouTube channel as we collate Relics related community videos into play lists as well as host our own. 

You can also follow us on our Facebook page and Twitter account.

You can download the rules from our here.

We are currently working on version 2 of Relics and have both version 1.2.x AND the proposed changes for version 2 on that link. The C'thu rules are in v2 format.   

This playlist on our YouTube channel has a number of battle reports on that you may find interesting. NOTE: all of these videos are using the 1.2.x version of the rules.

The C'thu are a new faction for our tabletop war game Relics. Inspired by H.P. Lovecraft and his Cthulhu Mythos, the C'thu will be adding another awesome looking race to the tabletops of Relicia.

C'thu Starter Set Sculpts

The C'thu will have a playing style not represented in Relics as yet with their heavy dependence on the Horror lingering effect counter in the game.

You can download the C'thu rules from here.

This project is being run on Kickstarter to enable us to sculpt the rest of the C'thu, print them and make the moulds faster than if we used traditional funding streams.

To help us do that, you get access to the goodies first because of our Kickstarter Guarantee (See the bottom of the page for details).

So, you fancy backing the project hey? Awesome! Need help working out what to pledge? Here's a handy Pledge Tool spreadsheet to help out!

In addition to the cover all '£1 or more' reward level (which is the main one, see the big graphic below), we also have two limited pledges:

The Really Smart Pledge - £180

This is a super pledge to get if you can. It has everything the Smart pledge (below) has but it also comes with a FREE C'thu dice bag, made by KOed Dice bags. This reward is limited to 20 pledges.

The Smart Pledge - £180

This reward is limited to 40 pledges.

Adjusting Your Pledge

During the project, adjusting your pledge is very simple. Kickstarter even have a number of FAQ items on how to manage your pledge! Damn nice of them!

Shipping

We are not charging shipping during the project, this will be sorted out post project in the reward store.

Instead of sending a survey out to see what you want, we will build a reward store and as individual reward items (blisters etc) are cast and come available we will add stock levels for them to the store.

Each backer will have an account in the store with their pledge amount as credit on their account. You can then spend your reward credit on reward items as they become available. If you wish to wait until everything you want is available that you want you can, but you also have the option to take rewards as they become available if you can't wait. Shipping will be applied each time you 'check out'.

Trade Accounts

Retailers and distributors can get a jump on the action and back the project too at their usual discount levels. If you have a trade account with us (or want to open one!) and back the project, please use the 'Contact Me' link at the top of the project.

We understand backers are important people. We understand that without you we could not realise this project as fast. As such, you should be treated as the VIPs you are; that is where our Kickstarter Guarantee comes in.

The Guarantee

We guarantee that not a single pack of models, funded as part of this project, will be sold through normal channels until 3 MONTHS have past since both of the following requirements are met:

  • 90% of backers have used all their reward credit.
  • All model packs are available on the reward store.

Why 90%?

To be frank with you (you can be Bob if you want) sometimes some backers really drag their heels when it comes to sorting their rewards out. Whether they have email issues or just forget or whatever, it can take some time to actually contact and get them to sort their rewards out.

As such, the 90% is in place to ensure we aren't tied to not releasing these models by backers who seem intent on not having their models in a timely fashion!!

Risks and challenges

We have run a number of previous crowdfunding projects and have been in business for 5 years. We have a well respected sculptor (Russ Charles) working on the sculpts, Clockwork Goblin will be doing the 3d printing and we do all the casting in house (although we do contract out the mould making). If you have seen any of our recent sculpts then you will know the quality you will get.

As such, the potentials for issues are reduced and those that do arise can be easily managed.
