Gangs of Rome2: Kickstarter läuft
Der Kickstarter zur neuen GoR-Version ist gestartet.
Five years after the release of Gangs of Rome, Footsore Miniatures & Games, with your help, would like to create a version two rulebook containing new core, advanced and campaign rules alongside new double-sided, full-colour printed MDF tokens.
The current miniatures are compatible with the new rules and will be available during the Kickstarter, providing a sizeable supporting range. However, we hope to unlock further stretch goals for new miniatures along the way. Include them as add-ons to your pledge will help make this happen.
Please help us fund a new version of this fun and popular game.
KICKSTARTER SPECIAL MINIATURE
We made Priscus Brutus, a Veteran Gang Leader (and our rulebook guide), available for FREE for the first 24 hours. Time is up, and the last backer to qualify was #511.
If you missed out, you could add him to your pledge now for £5. We won’t be releasing this Priscus Brutus miniature after the Kickstarter.
THE NEW RULEBOOK
Inspired by the history of the great city, Gangs of Rome takes place at a time when the city’s elite deployed relatively well-organised brutal gangs to do their bidding and enact their schemes. With the promise of wealth and glory, these fighters aim to aid you in your plan to rise to the Senate of Rome, nullifying all opponents in your path.
With your position of influence, you can equip your gang as they take to the streets and alleyways of the city, advancing your interests and confounding your foes. Your strategies, mixed with their savagery, can gain power and influence enough to change your future and that of Rome itself.
This is Gangs of Rome. An innovative 28mm Skirmish game based on the streets of the Empire. Welcome to Rome, Dominus.
This full-colour rulebook provides everything you need to be able to play Gangs of Rome. It takes you through the rules of the game section by section, with clear explanations where needed.
For veterans of the game, Priscus has prepared a comparison between version one and version two of Gangs of Rome. An A3 PDF version can be downloaded here.
We have kept things simple by offering only two rulebook pledges:
1. There is a rulebook and token pledge for current veterans.
2. If you are new to Gangs of Rome, a beginner’s pledge offers a starter bundle containing the new rulebook.
There’s also a £1 pledge which is an ideal way to follow along. You can also use it to build your own pledge via the add-ons, an ideal way to select only miniatures.
FUNDING GOAL & STRETCH GOALS
This project’s initial focus is to fund a new version two, A4 printed rulebook. We need £12,000 to achieve our primary goal.
If the initial funding goal is achieved, we also would like to be able to add new miniatures to the current Gangs of Rome range. With this in mind, we have prepared some stretch goals focusing on new characters you will find in the new book. These Stretch Goals, once unlocked, can be included in your pledge as add-ons.
We’ve also included the following current miniatures as pledge add-ons. As stretch goals are unlocked, they will also be available in the same way.
From all corners of the Empire, gangs are composed of anyone willing to enact the bidding of the wealthy for a price. They are disposable commodities, expandable playthings of the powerful. All gang fighters are single-piece white metal miniatures.
ROMES MOST WANTED
These are the most notorious gang fighters in the city and are known to both the VIgiles and Citizens alike. These are the fellows you try to recruit for the toughest of jobs.
Fighting for your life on the streets of Rome is hard; avoiding the mob’s wrath is even more challenging. Composed of the citizens of Rome, these men, women and children are the blood of the city, and they move about its arterial streets as they please. To avoid them makes completing your gangs‘ missions harder, and to fight in plain sight invites their wrath. The mob are single-piece white metal miniatures.
The incola are residents of Rome and notorious characters of either peril or service. Some may offer help, while others are a nightmare to be actively avoided. Whatever the outcome, gang fighters cannot harm an incola. All incola are white metal miniatures.
We have partnered with Sarissa Precision to bring the Streets of Rome to your tabletop. Gangs of Rome is played out over a 3′ x 3′ area. The bundle deals below will provide you with the right amount of terrain needed.
