COLONIAL SPACE WARS: ARMOURED WARFARE is a crowdfunding for producing a range of unique sci-fi vehicles. Despite being initially designed for CSW INVASION, these new 15mm models are also appropriate to be used in other game systems. Models will be produced mainly in resin, and white metal can be used for thinner components. Round 50mm DF bases are supplied with the vehicles, but these will be exchanged for plastic ones if that stretch goal is achieved.
CSW ARMOURED WARFARE Kickstarter is not merely an objective, it is just a portion of an universe full of ideas and possible extensions. The board game version already counts four factions and more than 150 units and, in time, we want to reproduce that same range of units in miniatures for CSW INVASION, creating a full wargame with a promising future and a rich background. This supplement for heavy gear is just another step forward!
The project is developed by Vedra Games, a Spanish game publisher and organizer of gaming events. Vedra Games has successfully edited the board game CSW: NEW HORIZONS and its expansion CSW: FLESH AND STEEL, proving its capacity to professionally and efficiently manage a commercial project. In order to fulfill the challenge of the multidisciplinary working areas of this project (traditional sculpting, 3D modelling and printing, casting and photography), other Spanish specialist companies have been involved with Vedra Games in a seamless partnership:
Today, thanks to this efficient network and your support, we will open a new chapter in the COLONIAL SPACE WARS history.
The CSW ARMOURED WARFARE KICKSTARTER campaign will last 21 days. During this period, backers are invited to join by pledging with different perks (see below). Each perk will require the compromise of investing a certain amount of funding; the higher is this level, the greater amount of additional Tactical Resources (rewards) to choose from.
In any case, backers should remember that no charges would be applied in case the minimum required for funding the campaign was not reached.
Tactical Resources are exclusive rewards you can select, up to a limit established by the perk you apply for (See above).
Add-ons are not part of the core KICKSTARTER reward system, but additional options for backers. Add-ons cannot be chosen from the Tactical Resource pool available for each pledge, but they can be acquired by increasing the funding as much as desired.
For example, one backer just applied for a "Psionic" level pledge (€50), but he wants to order some markers too. He increases his contribution to €60, so he can later claim €10 extra as Add-ons.
Several Stretch Goals can be unlocked after the primary goal (€1000) of the campaign is achieved. These can be present in different forms:
- new Tactical Resources (Rewards).
- Options (new items for customizable rewards).
- Bonuses (Additional stuff free of charge).
Some Stretch Goals can unlock more than one of these benefits.
Bonuses are classified in Basic and Golden ones. Certain perks (Psionic, Major and Commander) can claim all Basic Bonuses unlocked, but Golden Bonuses are only available for Commander pledges.
Shipping costs depend on two factors, weight and distance. Since the number of Stretch Goals unlocked and the rewards chosen will determine the final weight of package, we will charge shipping after the Kickstarter concludes. Then, we will collect those funds and the address information after the campaign ends.
The following list shows rough estimated rates by weight (0.5, 1 and 2 Kg) and region:
- SPAIN (PENINSULA ONLY): €5 / €7.5 / €10
- EUROPE: €10 / €15 / €25
- REST OF THE WORLD: €15 / €25 / €40
Risks and challenges
There are always some risks and challenges associated with running a crowdfunding project. Vedra Games might be small in comparison with other Kickstarter publishers, but after our 3 years of existence we have earned an outstanding reputation with our current customers. Our previous crowdfunding (CSW FLESH AND STEEL) was very successful, and we accomplished production of the entire project on schedule, even dispatching orders before the promised date. Due to the different type and size of this project, we have already invested in sculpting and casting the first miniatures of the starter box. Now, our backers can have a clear example of our producing capability and the level of quality the game components will have.
In order to complete this project, we already have all the 3D sculpts for the first Stretch Goals miniatures. At this point, it is only a matter of achieving the funds for printing them and starting the production. Since all components are made in Spain, we can easily oversee the process. In addition to a meticulous work planning, Vedra Games maintains close contact with all companies involved in this project, and we are confident that we can solve any problem that might arise during this final stage quickly and effectively. However, by pledging to this project backers accept that the final content of the rewards could be subject to change and eventually may differ in some degree from what it is presented during the campaign.
Finally, our estimated delivery date is December 2016. However, our backers should keep in mind that this is only an estimation; this period of time could be greater if many Stretch Goals are reached. Due to the logistics of international shipping, some backers in different regions of the world may receive their rewards sooner than others. In any case we will work hard to make sure that our backers enjoy their models by Christmas!.
Backers have 8 weeks after the crowdfunding ends to notify their rewards, shipping addresses via email and to fulfill the payments. Backers agree that our responsibility to them is to ship the rewards, but then the risk passes to them upon delivery to a common carrier for such shipment. Backers are responsible for any import duties (or others) that may be payable to the relevant tax authorities, providing correct address information and ensuring this address is deliverable by normal methods.
If you as backer do not accept these terms, since Vedra Games cannot get such responsibilities we recommend to not pledge on this project.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
