The Breaker Faction Set


Last week all of the printing arrived for the Kickstarter pledges. Since I already had all of the Breaker models in hand I started sorting cards and assembling box sets of Breakers.


The Breaker Faction Set contains 6 models, Will Kollis, Ari Gaylen, Trest, Talla Kellerman, Adesi Haddonis, and Nells Turnbull. You can find out more about these characters on the Breaker page. It also comes with 36 cards give you the stats, abilities, and equipment to play these 6 characters in Broken Contract.


Here's a snapshot of all 36 cards. 12 Stat cards, 11 Ability Cards, and 13 Equipment Cards, from the Knife to the Oversized Rock Saw. Though these weapons are meant to represent how the models are depicted, they will also allow you to ultimately customize your own Characters by swapping around whatever weapons and equipment you want before or during the game. Additionally, the Abilities represent different buffs to the characters, from re-rolls and bonuses to rolls, to ignoring in game effects like how the Lifter allows a character to ignore the penalties for a piece of equipment being Heavy or Massive allowing a gen-mod to carry something Oversized, like that Oversized Rock Saw mentioned above. Putting all of these on cards creates all sorts of opportunities for character building in the future.


Finally, over the weekend the last of the master models arrived. Here are some quick shots of the models. I cleaned and assembled a Surveillance Drone.


And here's a shot of all of the models that arrived: Overseer Smythe, Officer Anlika, Officer Moerta, and Grippe Candera. Over the next couple of days I need to clean and assemble these to ensure they are ready for production casting.

Thanks for reading! More soon.

Building a Punk Venue for WitS Pt. 1

Chris from Slow Death Games/Wild in the Streets isn't going to be able to make it to AdeptiCon this year so the Breaker Press Games booth is going to be running Wild in the Streets demos in addition to our yearly introduction to Broken Contract. This means that I'm going to need suitable scenery to use for demo purposes, as well as for photos used in Tooth Chipper Fanzine. With that in mind, I looked around the internet in search of buildings that fit my vision of the hip neighborhoods I've frequented around the country as my old bands toured. Everywhere I looked, the modern buildings I was most drawn to were all from the TT Combat City Scenics line.

I looked at their entire range, and even though their old theatre, comic book store, and music shop all seemed like automatic selections, I needed to get the most bang and flexibility for my buck, so I ordered their Take Away set online, which is meant to be a stripmall with 3 restaurants in it. Eagerly, I waited for it to ar…

Three New Releases for April 2018

At AdeptiCon we debuted three new releases and they are available on the Breaker Press webstore now!
Broken Contract The Day-to-Day Starter Box This Starter Box is a revised and reimagined version of last year's starter box. The box we brought out to the world through Kickstarter last year contained a lot of stuff, but in retrospect may have been a touch overwhelming to new players. The focus then was on creating a sandbox for players who wanted to create their own characters and crews, but it was too much stuff to make a smooth introduction.
The Day-to-Day Starter Box seeks to resolve that by adding our Introductory Episode Book, The Day-to-Day and keeping the cards and models strictly to those on the sample crew rosters included in the book. The three scenarios are meant to guide the players through progressively more involved Acts, composing a mini-campaign called an Episode. 

The Day-to-Day Starter Box is the perfect introduction to the miniature game, Broken Contract. Contained…

Rust Pointe Dumpster Review

I came back from AdeptiCon with a bunch of stuff. I acquired the vehicles for Wreck-Age that my partner and I backed on Kickstarter. I picked up a few Aetherium miniature sets to use for my own Broken Contract games set in the FerrumSky Mines, as well as for playtesting a future BC expansion. Finally, I came back with a bunch of scenery kits from Death Ray Designs.


The first project I chose to dive into when I got home was the Rust Pointe Dumpster from Death Ray Designs. I bought three of them and I have them all in various stages of completion. I don't generally do reviews, but I was so impressed with this little kit, that I wanted to talk about it.

As you can see in the photo above, it's just a rectangular dumpster, and a tiny kit at that. The immediate thing I want to note is that it comes with assembly instructions. A bunch of other MDF kits I own have no instructions, which was fine for the simpler ones. The last building I built though, had a bunch of successive layers …
