New Releases, Wargame Vault, and PATMOCON

Breaker Press Games has been going full steam ahead for the last 6 months, and sadly, we haven't documented any of it here. We rented a studio space, ran three successful Kickstarters, learned how to use a laser cutter, and even recently acquired streaming gear. If I tried to pack the last year and a half since the last blog post, we'd be writing all day and you'd all tune out halfway through. Instead, we'll just hit on some of the big beats for today.

New Models in the Webstore 

Female Breaker Gen-mod painted by Malev Minis.

Last week we went through the webstore and made sure to make some items clearly Out of Stock, and to add some of the new items we've produced. The first of the two new items added to the webstore are the Female Breaker Gen-mod, packaged in a red MDF shipping container terrain piece. Now, this model isn't that new. If you backed the Kickstarter at the end of 2018, you've had this model in your possession for 6 or more months.

The other item added is something brand new, Control Boxes. While developing the Gen-mods and the Children of FerrumSky kit, we had another side wish: a set of objectives that fit flush with our mine walls. This three pack contains a keypad box, an alarm box, and a mechanical lever box, which are frequently used objectives in the scenarios published so far for Broken Contract

PDF Titles Now on Wargame Vault

Over the weekend the Broken Contract Rule Book, Broken Contract Player's Guide, Broken Contract The Day-to-Day, and Tooth Chipper #1 (for use with Wild in the Streets by Slow Death Games) all went up for purchase on Wargame Vault. This has been on our wish list forever, and we finally made the time. Big ups to Hal for slogging through the technical graphic design stuff that I don't fully understand. You can check those out here.

Virtual Cons

Gaming has moved onto the internet for the time being and we are dutifully observing social distancing as well. There are a bunch of virtual conventions coming up and we are planning on participating in several of them. The first one we have coming up is PATMOCON run by Peter from Paint All the Minis Podcast. We were invited to participate in the Entrepreneur's Alley portion of this online event along with Ash Barker from GMG, Chris Kohler from Slow Death, Joseph McGuire from This is Not a Test among others. In preparation for this and other cool upcoming events we've acquired some techy new streaming gear so we can stay better connected with all of you.

Stay tuned here or to your preferred social media outlet for more information.

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…

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…
