Crooked Dice: Argonauts Kickstarter
Crooked Dice hat ihren neuesten Kickstarter gestartet: Ziel ist die Finanzierung eines neue Programme Guide für 7TV (2nd Edition):
Argonauts 7TV Programme Guide & Miniatures
Help fund a new programme guide, profile cards and 28mm miniatures for 7TV’s metal monstrosities – the Argonauts!
WHAT’S THE CAMPAIGN?
The Argonauts – Crooked Dice’s legendary mechanised menaces – return to 7TV with all new models, rules and characters!
NEW PROGRAMME GUIDE & CARDS
We hope to fund the printing of the Argonauts Programme Guide and profile cards and some new miniatures to allow you to play this cast of metal monsters with the 7TV: Inch High Spy-Fi skirmish game.
This is a 40 page full colour booklet and a deck of 36 profile cards, written by Karl Perrotton and Glenn Allan with background material from Helena Nash. Illustrations are from artists Stephane Enjolras and Andrew Maclachlan, with photography by Kevin Dallimore.
This programme guide is packed with background, profiles and episodes for the Argonauts – the creations of the mad scientist Ulysses Argo. The background and characters have been expanded from first edition and now includes a wider range of Stars, Co-Stars and Extras.
NEW ARGONAUT MINIS…
If the campaign is successful, we also hope to fund new Argonauts sculpts that you can include as extra Add-On purchases as they are unlocked.
…AND BACK CATALOGUE BUNDLE DEALS!
We will also give backers the opportunity to purchase existing miniatures from the Crooked Dice back catalogue to help build you casts of these tin terrors! All miniatures are supplied unpainted.
The guide also includes six new episodes to pit a range of forces from the 7TV: Inch High Spy-Fi core set against Argo and his robotic legions.
The Argonaut miniature range has been brought to life by the sculpting talents of Ernst Veingart, Andrew Rae, Andrew May, Jo Brumby, Ian Mountain, George Fairlamb, Andrew Maclachlan and Greg Storey.
SO WHO ARE THE ARGONAUTS?
Designed to work with the 7TV 2nd edition rules, this guide details the Argonauts – the mechanical monsters ruled with an iron fist and cold logic by mad scientist Dr Ulysses Argo.
Argo seeks revenge on a world he claims betrayed him. Through the armoured might and superior technology of his mechanical creations, he plots to bring down governments, institutions and individuals and replace them with unfeeling machines.

WHO ARE CROOKED DICE?
Crooked Dice Game Design Studio has been part of the wargaming hobby since 2010. We specialise in wargames rules and 28mm miniatures inspired by the many and varied iconic worlds of Cult TV. We have a range of over 500 miniatures and an extensive selection of resin terrain and vehicles.
We also publish the 7TV series of wargames. These fun and flexible skirmish rules allow you to recreate any type of cinematic action on the tabletop.
SO WHAT IS 7TV?
The basic rules allow you to put together a cast of between 3 and 24 (or more!) models and fight other casts in abandoned warehouses, secret volcano lairs, forbidding jungles and underwater bases – in fact anywhere you like! Use your star qualities, special effects and gadgets to get your mission accomplished before the countdown ends and the episode is over.
The core rules are generic so, if you’ve seen it on screen or had a dream about your perfect lineup, you can put your cast together quicker than ever before. You can find out more and download a FREE copy of the 7TV rules here.
We have set our initial funding target at £1500 which will cover print and production costs for the guide and a new set of profile cards for this cast.
Kickstarter has been chosen as a way to help fund production of this new set of miniatures and rules. Successful funding via Kickstarter will be the quickest way to deliver more products than if we used our traditional release schedule. So simply more stuff, much faster! Plus the reach of Kickstarter is huge, and a community in itself, so we hope it will introduce Crooked Dice to a whole new audience.
