Just Over a Week Away!

Broken Contract worker revolt scene by Geng Gendall

On September 1st I'll be launching the Kickstarter for Broken Contract, the sci-fi western themed miniature board game I've been working on for almost a year now. This week will be a flurry of activity as I try and get everything as it should be for the best results. I have a bunch of art and 3D sculpts, but I still have to make the Kickstarter video, re-run all of my numbers again, and do a photo shoot with my mock up game pieces which are still in the process of being designed. So much to do!

In the meantime, enjoy all of the art, check out the Broken Contract Design Blog, Like Broken Contract on Facebook, and if you run across any Broken Contract posts on BoLS GameWire, DakkaDakka, Warseer, or BoLS Lounge drop a comment. If there is some place you go to for your forum or blog based gaming fix that I haven't mentioned, by all means start a thread or make a post. Every bit of public support helps very much!

I'm still putting the finishing touches on the Broken Contract Kickstarter page, but if you want to take a first glimpse at it you are welcome to. People who follow 2ndCityWarzone are the first people to see it outside of my immediate friends, so check it out. Remember, I haven't made the video yet - that's the first thing people comment on the page needing. Believe me, I know. :)

Here's the most recent sculpt I got from Tim Barry. I think he's doing a great job. If you didn't know he did the sculpts for Aetherium

Over this next week is the best time to get your feedback in, make suggestions, and let me know if you would like to help out in some way. I'll take any help I can get. Thanks!

Big Things Afoot

Tents by me. I'm not sure about the figs. Box design by Anton Zaleski.

Last update I showed off some tents and a campfire that I painted for Wreck-Age which were painted up to be used in their box art. Well here it is! I think they came out pretty well.

This pic shows the back side of 2 of the tents.They aren't as detailed without the beat up salvaged road signs but I still really like them.

Anton did mention having me do a series of other scenery kits for them but I'm not sure I'll have time with gearing up to Kickstart my own game - Broken Contract. This week I got my second 3D render from sculptor Tim Barry. Its a Breaker - a contracted miner who has raised his tool in revolt.

And a week before that I got this concept sketch from Sam Alcarez for a Breaker mechanic:

Things are really coming together. I haven't been able to touch my Orks still and I regretfully cancelled my last 2 attempted gaming nights but at least the game itself is coming along,

Thanks for reading!
