+STRONGSWORD+ is a slightly quirky but simple-to-learn set of rules designed for playing tabletop fantasy wargames with Westfalia Miniatures’ models, or your own if you prefer.
This is our 7th Kickstarter and one that we are particularly excited about. This is the first time that we're dabbling in the rather crowded market of wargame rules, but we felt that 'our' game was still missing, so here it is!
- Play time: 45-180 mins
- Number of players: 2-4
- Age: 12+
+STRONGSWORD+ places you at the head of a mob of ferocious frothing fighters, be that a large or small mob of them! Although all of your models act independently from one another, your whole force is guided by the single tactic or ‘Battle Stance’ you set each turn.
The Book of Books
The book is 45 pages, soft cover, full colour, contains a smattering of illustrations and lots of lovely photos. It is divided into 2 different parts:
- The game rules
- The Kobold Wars campaign
Plus, Bestiaries and a bit of a +STRONGSWORD+ narrative.
We have Kobolds, Mercenaries, and Monsters all made of sturdy resin; just the right bits to get a campaign going. There's no real need to buy any of our (incredibly pretty) minis; however, as the game will work with pretty much any collection. Please note that our figurines come without bases.
Michael Anderson has sculpted the miniatures, and the rules have been written and edited by Daniel Mersey. The project, the sculptors, and the production are all located in the UK.
The campaign starts with a basic pledge level of £1. Paying £1 will give you access to updates and permit you to buy individual minis to make your own custom package. The pledge levels that come after are for specific pre-made sets. However, please note that all the pledge levels will allow you to make a custom order and include items from the add-on list into your chosen pledge level. To assist with this, we have developed a PLEDGE MANAGER.
All pledge levels include postage when you check out, EXCEPT THE £1 LEVEL. £1 Backers that decide to “top-up” their pledge to create a custom order using the PLEDGE MANAGER, will be contacted by email with their total owing for postage, which can then be paid by Paypal.
Our miniatures are large 28mm that mix well with most modern ranges.

Risks and challenges
Westfalia is a well established miniature production company that has been running for the past six years. From the beginning Westfalia has made a name for itself delivering quality products with top notch customer service. To see more about Westfalia, check out our website or Facebook pages: http://westfaliaminiatures.com
Over the last two years we have hosted six Kickstarters, all with miniatures and all were successfully funded and completed. We have consistently had extremely positive feedback from our supporters. (See the links to our previous Kickstarter projects at the top of the page to read more about those projects.) In addition, we have spent a lot of time planning this project and we have almost all figures already sculpted. The content and layout of the rulebook is complete. All that’s left to do is the figurine casting and book printing once we know how many people are interested. Even though we aim for a speedy delivery It is possible that casting and printing take a longer than expected.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
