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 within are the Broken Contract Rule Book, The Day-to Day Introductory Episode Book, 8 metal miniatures, a game map, 64 cards, 30 chits, 8 character dashboards, 4 dice, and 2 rulers - everything you need to get up and playing Broken Contract.

Note: If you already own last year's Starter Box, you don't need this one. Instead, you want...


Broken Contract The Day-to-Day Introductory Episode Book
Knowing that our existing fan-base already own the previous Starter Box, we chose to make The Day-to-Day Episode Book a product available separately as well. 

The Day-to-Day is the first in a series of Episode books for Broken Contract, and requires the Broken Contract Rulebook to be played. Contained within these pages are three Introductory scenarios, called Acts, that build into a mini campaign that will give the players hours of gaming entertainment as a single Episode, or can be inserted into your own campaigns to be played again and again.

Included in this Episode are three scenarios, background information, four double sided game map tiles, and a sample crew roster.


Tooth Chipper: Wild in the Streets Fanzine Issue #1
Last fall I pitched the idea to Chris at Slow Death Games that I wanted to do fanzine-style gaming supplement for his game, Wild in the Streets. He loved the idea, so we set about collecting a fun batch of scenarios and staging some cool photos to set the scene. Real life suggested music playlists help set the tone for your games as things get ugly at the fur protest or you try to sneak into a 21+ show of your favorite washed-up punk band!

This issue contains five new scenarios: 
-Record Store Day by Chris Kohler 
-Fur Free Friday by Nick Baran 
-Not-So-Secret Sipper by Ash Barker 
-21+ = 0 by Nick Baran 
- Rival Shows by Nick Baran

This fanzine is also packed with references for anyone who wants to start a deep dive into the music subcultures that are the basis for the game, in lieu of the "background" that is found in most game publications.

Stay tuned as we repackage some of our existing range of models, cards, and dice and keep your eyes peeled for our next Kickstarter for some brand new models!

Thanks for reading.

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…

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…

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…
