Two New Sculpts: Talla Kellerman and Trest the Gen-Mod

This week we have two new 3D sculpts to show off, both of Breaker Characters. These have gone through several stages of revision and I think they are where they need to be. 

Talla Kellerman the Progen Mechanic 3D sculpt by Tim Barry

First we have Talla Kellerman, the Progen Mechanic. Talla is a highly capable technician, and is a great asset to your crew of Breakers. Remembering door codes or getting machinery up and running - if you run into a situation where you need to make an Intellect Check, she's your best bet. However, getting her to join your crew is not as easy. As a Progen, she is child of the original colonists on Hathor, and receives better quarters and wages for her work than the rest of the Tracted workers. This makes breaking a much greater risk because she has more to lose. In the game, she must be negotiated with to join your crew. However, if you get her to join, she'll also be better at negotiating with other Progens you encounter along the way.

Trest the Gen-Mod Brute, 3D sculpt by Tim Barry

Second we have Trest, the Gen-Mod Brute. Trest is a hulking behemoth of a man, towering above his crew. Born and raised into a genetic modification program, Trest was designed with gigantism and immense strength so he could wield construction equipment normally affixed to vehicles. Brutes are pumped full of steroids and other drugs to maintain peek performance during their work shift. With his size, endurance, and ability to swing a weapon that can easily render a person into paste, Trest packs a heavy punch that has to be dealt with by the Prods.Trest is a great distraction. He can endure more Wounds than a normal human, and if you need to pass a Strength Check to move a rock or lift a malfunctioning door, he is the Character you need.

Both of these Characters will be part of the upcoming Broken Contract - Deep Underground box set that we'll be Kickstarting early next year.

November 5: New Breaker Miniature Range Kickstarter!

In less than a week we will be running our next Kickstarter. This one is to fund the manufacture and expansion of our Breaker range of miniatures. If you've been following Breaker Press for a while, you've probably seen images of some of these sculpts appear over the last year and a half (yes, the gears grind slowly at Breaker Press). It is finally time to send them to the caster, but we need your help. We are starting things off with the two Gen-Mods that we've been sitting on for quite some time. These will be the basis for the Kickstarter campaign. The campaign is going to start small - we just need to raise enough money to cast and ship these two models.
If the campaign goes well, the Stretch Goals will be determined by you, the community. The first Survey went up and the first Stretch Goal will be for the female Breaker Crew Leader.
Hopefully, we can work our way through all of the concept art depicted on the ad at the top of this post, and then move onto some addit…

Getting Organized! May Objectives.

April was an exciting month and we've got a lot of plans coming up. Here's a list of projects and their status:
Children of FerrumSky (Broken Contract) At the end of April we shipped the first wave of Children of FerrumSky Kickstarter Rewards to our Backers. Even though we had plenty of boxes, shipping containers, stickers, labels, and thank you cards, I didn't double check the number of actual models we had on hand. I thought I ordered 60, and we only had 30. We shipped out everything we had on hand, but we still have half of our Backers waiting for their models to ship. Currently Valiant in Madison, Wisconsin are only casting pewter miniatures due to reduced staff (ie. just the two owners of the business). They are still prepping molds for resin models but resin miniature manufacture is more labor intensive and currently their production staff are observing Wisconsin's Safer at Home order. That being said, fresh molds have been ordered and as soon as they bring back…

Kickstarters You Should Know About!

I have a lot of friends doing a lot of cool stuff. One of those friends has a project that is currently on Kickstarter. It is called Ruin & Conquest and it is a system-agnostic campaign setting for whatever fantasy RPG you love. Brinton Williams has thrown his heart and soul into this tome and has gathered a whole host of top notch analog artists to bring his vision to gritty black ink on white paper. Go over to Kickstarter and check it out. The funding push will end on Friday October 26th, so don't sleep on it. Also, it looks like his Facebook group could use a boost too, so if you're on Facebook go Like Ruin & Conquest there.


I've never met Jason at Thunderchild Miniatures, but we both ran our first Kickstarters simultaneously a few years back and I have been following his work ever since. He is dedicated to his craft, that is for sure. His next Kickstarter launches this weekend, on Saturday October 20th. This time around he is releasing a miniature board game c…
