Confrontation: Gewinnspiel und Kickstarter Countdown
Heute haben wir einen großes Update zu Confrontation Classic für Euch zusammengetragen – und ein noch größeres Gewinnspiel!
Den Anfang machen Infos zum Kickstarter und der großen Classic Box, Hervorhebungen wie immer durch uns:
At the start of the April Kickstarter, the Confrontation Classic box will contain:
- The game rules.
- The 16 factions gathered in a single box, and playable with a pool of points.
- Meaning 178 unique miniatures.
- Two complete Battle sets in order to set up 2 simultaneous games, or one 4-player game.
Of course, this box will be enhanced with all of the stretch goals and bonuses unlocked during the campaign: miniatures, terrain, and other game materiel… And importantly – some stretch goals will be available separately, as Add-ons. The details of these stretch goals will be unveiled during the Kickstarter campaign.
What will the stretch goals be?
The details of the stretch goals will be revealed soon. We can already confirm that all of the stretch goals will unlock miniatures which will automatically be added to the contents of the box. It’s worth mentioning again – the clans and the larger pieces will make their appearance!
What will the rules for Confrontation Classic be ?
We took the decision to keep the historical and well adjusted rules of Confrontation (known as 3.5 by the experts). Most of the Confrontation community knows these rules, and new players can easily get hold of them. Additionnaly, we will also offer experience rules and a campaign mode (Dogs of War, for those of you who already know the game).
How were the 16 selections for Confrontation Classic made?
These starting selections had to fulfill multiple objectives, starting with the fun of discovery and great playability.
What we’ve also taken into consideration:
- The best esthetic choices and visual style representative of the faction.
- The variety of gameplay unique to each faction, as each one has advantages which should be used as much as possible during skirmishes.
- The vote of the fans of the Facebook page to the Confrontation Hall of Fame. Their choices have often reinforced our own choices, and in other cases helped us come to a decision.
- The balance of the factions against each other, so that they could face one another in any game combination, meaning exactly 200 duel possibilities! (Approx. 400 points for experienced players).
Finally, each miniature will be playable with the rules for Confrontation Resurrection, coming in 2019!
Will the miniatures be unpainted?
Yes – you’ll have to paint the miniatures, as Confrontation Classic is our way of paying homage to the great historical game from Rackham, and it’s obvious to us that we should offer the models the way players discovered them at the time.
Round base or square base?
Both! In order to allow players to use Confrontation Classic models with all Confrontation games as well as with other miniature wargames or boardgames, the event box will contain both types of bases: round and square.
Anmerkung der Redaktion: Diese Entscheidung ist zumindest zweischneidig, da die klassischen COnfrontation-Regeln eindeutig auf eckige Bases zugeschnitten sind und mit Rundbases schlechter funktionieren.
What does the Battle Set contain?
The Battle Set contains all you need to prepare your battlefield: a game map and a set of terrain. These terrain pieces will be designed by Thierry Husser. He was part of the Rackham Studio, knows the world of Confrontation, and creates superb terrain for TH Miniatures. We’re elated to count Thierry among our number as we give new life to this wonderful world.
The basic box will contain 2 Battle Sets, which will allow you to play up to 2 games simultaneously. Also, the Battle Set will be available as an Add-on. You’ll thus be able to play from 2 to 4 players, all the way to 16 players with the same basic box, simply by getting extra Battle Sets (which is useful if you’re a gaming club or a convention and want to hold tournaments!).
Will miniatures not present in the Kickstarter also get a profile for Confrontation Resurrection?
At the moment, we’re focusing our efforts on the profiles of the 178 miniatures from the basic box and (of course) those which will be unlocked through stretch goals. If, after the Kickstarter ends, we still have a few left to adapt, we’ll clarify publicly at that time. 😉
Will there be miniatures as Add-ons?
Yes. All stretch goals for the clans and the large models unlocked will also be available as Add-ons. These groups can ally with many game factions.
Außerdem gibt es einen Ausblick auf Confrontation Resurrection, welches im kommenden Jahr erscheinen soll:
LOOKING TO THE FUTURE
The exceptional Kickstarter which will open in a few days is the prelude to the great return of Confrontation and the many projects accompanying it. The first of these will be Confrontation Resurrection, the setting of which takes place after Rag’Narok. It will also be a skirmish game, on which the writing has already begun, and we’re imposed the following limitations on ourselves:
- No faction will disappear – you’ll be able to use your favorite armies, though we’re not going to reveal how any of them have survived the cataclysm just yet…
- All of the miniatures in the Confrontation Classic Kickstarter will be compatible with Resurrection and will have their profiles ported to this new edition.
- All of the rules will be re-written, in order to match new gaming styles. Yes, we’ll be putting out new things! You’ll thus be able to play with all of your factions using both the historical rules AND with the new rules we’re currently writing. Confrontation Classic is therefore exceptional at more than one level. This is really a project aimed at the future and a base through which we will be developing other projects: expansions, boardgames, roleplaying games, etc. So many different games for which your miniatures will, of course, have a use!
Neben dem Kickstarter gibt es schon jetzt eine besondere Vorbesteller-Aktion: Wer sich schon jetzt eine der Boxen reerviert, und mit der dabei angegebenen E-Mail Adresse ein Pledge abgibt, erhält 3 Gratismodelle aus Resin:
