CSW: ARMOURED WARFARE 3
Join our community and help us to create new models of vehicles for the stunning sci-fi wargame Colonial Space Wars.
Welcome to COLONIAL SPACE WARS: ARMOURED WARFARE 3. The goal of this crowdfunding is the creation of new vehicles for the wargame CSW. This KS is the continuation of CSW: ARMOURED WARFARE and CSW ARMOURED WARFARE II, which were successfully funded. With your support to this campaign we will expand the range of tanks, mechs and buildings available, making the CSW experience even cooler!.
Despite CSW ARMOURED WARFARE models are designed for the wargame COLONIAL SPACE WARS, they can be used in other sci-fi game systems that use 15mm and smaller scales.
These models were 3D sculpted by José Méndez. They are produced mainly in resin, but white metal is used for thinner components. Round 50mm DF bases, required for CSW gaming, are supplied with the vehicles.
The project is developed by Vedra Games, a Spanish game publisher that has released the board games "Colonial Space Wars", "Dragon Rush" and "Golf´n´Roll". Our two previous CSW Kickstarters were managed professionally and efficiently, and thus we can guarantee the fulfillment of the project.
Finally this campaign is just a little fraction of a rich sci-fi universe. In time, we want to reproduce that same range of units in miniatures that it is available in the boardgame CSW version. And with your support we will achieve it!.
This Kickstarter campaign will last only 10 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.
To our most committed backers (Commander pledge) belong an awesome exclusive Kickstarter reward: the centauri Polemarch Minotaur!
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).
- Bonuses (Additional stuff free of charge). 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.
Some Stretch Goals can unlock more than one of these benefits.
Tactical Resources are exclusive rewards you can select, up to a limit established by the perk you apply for (See Pledge Levels).
Add-ons are not part of the core Kickstarter reward system, but additional options for backers.In this crowdfunding several models produced in the previous campaign can be ordered as Add-ons.
Add-ons can be chosen from the Tactical Resource pool available for each pledge.
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 has earned an outstanding reputation with our current customers. Our previous funded crowdfundings were successful, and we accomplished the production of projects on schedule, even dispatching orders before the promised date. Since this is not our first campaign, our backers can have a clear example of our producing capability and the level of quality the models will have.
In order to complete this project, we already have the 3D sculpts of all the Stretch Goals miniatures. Thus once we get the funds, they are going to be printed and produced. 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 the manufacturer, 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 2018. 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 will 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
