Apoc Funded

7TV:Apocalypse Kickstarter now live!

So today welcomes the end of the world… At 8pm tonight we launched the 7TV:APOCALYPSE KICKSTARTER.

We hope to fund a brand new 7TV boxed set7TV:Apocalypse – to expand our cinematic skirmish rules into the post-apocalyptic (PA) genre. This is supported with over a hundred 28mm miniatures.

Crooked Dice already publish 7TV – wargaming in the world of cult tv. These fun and flexible skirmish rules allow you to recreate any type of cinematic action on the tabletop. For the past eighteen months, we have been working on expanding 7TV into other settings – and the first is the wide-ranging post-apocalyptic genre!

Please spread the news far and wide and tell your wargaming friends, close family and strangers at bus stops.

Children of the Fields

Children of the Fields retail launch

Following the successful kickstarter, the Children of the Fields range of models and rules are now on general release. The kickstarter allowed us to deliver over fifty new models to cover most of the models in the programme guide – as well as the physical cards and supplement itself.

Strawman

So now everyone can explore the village of Winterly… but be warned you may never want to leave…

Keep your motor running…

New releases! Fifteen new packs are available this month.

Head out for the highway with our 28mm (1/50th scale) Interceptor vehicle and Interceptor Stowage allow you loads of different builds.

Plus lots of accessory kits to upgrade the other existing CD vehicles or to add to your die casts: armour plating, 3 different weapons packs, turrets, two stowage kits. We’ve also got four sign packs and a set of small Satellite dishes to enhance your wasteland.

Signs 1 to 4. Each sold separately. Figure shown for scale, not included.

Price changes

Crooked Dice will be VAT registered from 01 August. On the one hand, that’s good news as it’s a signal the company is growing and things are going well. The downside is that for the first time in ten years there will be some adjustments to figure pricing.

We always tried to supply quality, reasonably priced specialist miniatures and that aim won’t change. And after a review and lots of wailing and gnashing of teeth, I think that on the whole, products are priced about right. However, there are a few historic pricing anomalies that I am going to standardise – and a few of the larger packs will be going up.

The changes are not radical – in fact you’ll notice that some pack prices don’t change at all. There will be a few exceptions, but in general, these will be the new prices:

  • All Accessories (heads, weapon sprues) – £2
  • All single figures – £4
  • All packs of TWO figures – £8
  • All packs of THREE figures – £10
  • All packs of FOUR UNIT figures – £12
  • All packs of FOUR PERSONALITY figures – £15
  • All packs of FIVE UNIT figures – £15
  • All Starter Casts packs (8 figures) – £20

Increases will start to take to take effect over the next couple of weeks. With over 300 products in the catalogue it will take a while to manually change everything!

As a way of softening the blow, any orders from now until the end of July will receive a FREE random figure with any order over £10.

Resin will be reviewed separately as it’s less consistent than the lead.

I hope this won’t put you off supporting Crooked and buying our lovely toys and I’ll thank you in advance for your patience as I work through all the admin.

Lawmen-with-Shotguns

Your Favourite Deputies

Kickstarter Pledge Manager Open

Thanks to everyone who already completed their pledges. I know a few folks were waiting until payday, so everyone still gets a chance to choose their goodies if they missed the Kickstarter. Just check out the link in the post below for all the details of how to pick up our new range of folk horror miniatures.

Kickstarter ends at 8PM tonight!

The long and winding road to Winterly is almost over. The response to the Children of the Fields Kickstarter has been phenomenal and you’ve unlocked more goodies than I had hoped for!

So why not sit back with a nice cup of tea and have a browse through the pledges and add ons.

Make sure you’ve got exactly what you want and, if you are feeling a bit fruity, maybe treat yourself to another pack – or go big with a Manor Born Pledge! Lady Winterly will be very pleased…

KS: May Queens Unlocked

We’ve unlocked another stretch goal in our Children of the Fields Kickstarter

The May Queens are now available to be added to pledges for £12 – or free to all ‘Manor Born’ pledges. We’ll keep you updated on progress of the sculpts in the next couple of weeks.

May Queens

I’ve also updated the goal levels for the next three stretches. Hopefully we can build on the cracking start to the campaign and work toward these over the weekend.

Traditionally Kickstarters go a bit quiet mid-campaign, so this is where we need your help to share posts, tell all your friends and generally make a nuisance of yourself frothing to strangers about Crooked Dice!

If we do really well, then I’ll share the next stretch goals images… who wants to see a Hobby Horse and Strawbear… or maybe even Lady Winterly riding her driftwood steed?

But meanwhile, we have the the Brood to unlock at £13k. Sculpted by Iain Colwell and painted here for display by Simon Bradley. Go get ‘em!

Children of the Fields: Kickstarter Update

Thank you! 24 hours in and with your help we were funded in 18 minutes, and are already well on the way to unlocking four of the stretch goals!

If you want to join the campaign, or simply find out more, then check out our Kickstarter page.

STRETCH GOALS UNLOCKED
The first stretch goal unlocked was a print version of the Children of the Fields Programme Guide. It’s 40 pages of background, profiles, tactics, episodes and some stunning photography by Kev Dallimore – just add £7 to your pledge.

PG-Print-UL

The second stretch goal was the Murder of Crows. Eight flapping and pecking little bleeders to do the Crow King’s bidding. Just add £6 to your pledge to get them.

Crows-UL

The Husks have now been unlocked too. These are the shambling, dusty corpses of Winterly’s long dead. They are raised from the earth by the diabolical Black Goat as a final insult to the residents of Winterly, and a reminder that there is still a tithe to pay him – even in death…

Husks-UL

So just add £12 to your pledges to get five of these ancient zombies and help unlock the next stretch goal. It’s a big one at £8000 with the towering Strawman!

Strawman UL

EXPLAINING ADD ONS
All the campaign stretch goals are Add-Ons, which work out cheaper than the final retail price. So simply add the value to your pledge and we will figure out what items you want in the pledge manager when the campaign ends.

This stretch and all the rest are free in the ‘To the Manor Born’ Pledge. I’ve shown some of the stretch goals, but there are more to come if things go mad (about 20 more figures in total), so pledging big gets you a hefty discount, plus also helps nudge the total to unlock more stuff.

CotF-FB-LIVE

It lives! Children of the Fields Kickstarter now live!

Our first Kickstarter campaign is live! We hope to fund a new folk horror cast with 20+ models in the core pledges. Plus there’s a new Programme Guide, profile cards and some new Arcana cards to work with the diabolic magicks of the strange inhabitants of the village of Winterly. Check them all out over on the Kickstarter site.

Main-Page-image

There are a number of pledge levels to suit your budget plus an Add-On option where you can pledge a £1 and just pick out the sets you like. We hope the campaign will be successful and unlock the funds to produce lots more models. If all stretch goals are unlocked then we have over twenty more available to put into production. So help us spread the word and tell all your gamers, mini painters and collectors that the Crow King is on the march…
