About this project

 

 

 

Welcome to the Infinity RPG Kickstarter, help us fund an RPG based on the massive Infinity skirmish miniatures game!

The Infinity universe was launched by Corvus Belli as a hugely-popular tabletop skirmish game in which sci-fi themed miniatures simulated futuristic battles across the alien battlefronts of Paradiso and the internecine conflicts of the Human Sphere. Before there was a skirmish game, though, there was an RPG: Infinity started life as a homemade RPG setting for the early roleplaying adventures of Corvus Belli founders Alberto, Carlos, Fernando, and Gutier. We've been playtesting the Infinity RPG with hundreds of people for the last 9 months, working hard to recapture the excitement of those first sessions and ensure that the feel of the Infinity universe will be captured in your own campaign!

This Kickstarter has funded the production of a beautiful full colour, hardback 368 page core rulebook for the roleplaying game. It will be sent out in PDF in December and the printed books in February 2016. We are also going to fund Faction supplements, campaign, amazing geomorphic tiles, custom dice, accessories, upgrades to increase the content in certain books and much more.

In the twisted jungles of Paradiso, humanity fights for its survival. The fierce, alien warriors of the Combined Army have poured through the Acheron Gate, descending upon the emerald jungles of the newest colonial world in a seemingly unstoppable torrent. The bestial Morat pound the Paradiso Front, where brave men and women fight ceaselessly to maintain a desperate defensive line which the sly Shasvastii penetrate with devastating ease. In the star-swept skies above, the collected might of humanity’s armadas maintain a life-or-death blockade to cut off an endless horde of alien reinforcements. And if any of humanity’s fractious forces should falter, then all may be lost…

But beyond that terrifying holding action, the intrigues and adventures of the Human Sphere spin on. Space pirates cruise through the shattered planetoids of Human Edge. Scientist adventurers delve the oceans of Varuna. Merchant guilds scheme amidst the scourging sands of Bourak. From Yutang, the Emperor gazes forth from an uneasy throne. Titanic war machines stride across the icy plains of Svalarheima. Byzantine hypercorps struggle for dominance amidst the chrome towers of Neoterra.

For the last ten years, players have tested their mettle upon the battlefields of the Human Sphere in Corvus Belli’s hugely-popular Infinity skirmish game. Now you can expand your adventures, diving deep into the amazing, never-before-seen depths of the Infinity universe with the ultimate science fiction roleplaying game.

I backed this.

 

Their Mutant Chronicles game turned out great and this shares a system with it.

 

Just keep in mind while their products have been excellent they have been chronically behind schedule.

I'm in at the print and PDF master.

I second werk on the behind schedule. I was in on their achtung and while the stuff will come out and look great you will need to be patient. I'm still waiting on Achtung stuff.

 

 

The system is actually pretty good. I had misgivings on it for Mutant Chronicles but now that I've seen and played it I enjoy the system.

Set it on reminder.  In general, I have a hard time pledging for RPGs these days.  Everything I've pledged for in the past ended up being retail price, and everything unlocked was released at retail too.  Could have saved 20% or more by waiting.

If the pattern holds from previous ones, the individual books are pretty close to retail. But things like pdf master, print master and subscription are fairly solid discounts.

Surprisingly I am not all that into the miniatures. I am currently in for the pdf of the core rule book but may level up if the Ares Mythologic Indiegogo does not fund. I am mainly in this one for the universe fluff as I am sucker for that kind of stuff.

That's been the thing holding me back from the Infinity wargame (well, that and a lack of existing players). I think they're solid miniatures, but the style just seems "meh" to me.  Maybe a little too generic or too far-future or something; I can't quite put my finger on it.

There are actually some of the regular stuff that I really like, the two sets that I have gotten I got because of the minis. But there are some that are, like you said, too generic. I think that is my problem with the ones for the Kickstarter. There is nothing about them that makes them special in my mind. It is a little disappointing as I anticipated going in for just the minis as I am not sure if I will actually play the game. But as I play the war game and am a sucker for fluff, I am in for at least the pdf's.

Kind of surprised no one else has posted this. Modiphius is putting out the Infinity RPG in cooperation with Corvus Belli:

Love the figures and art and played a little of the skirmish game. I like what I've seen of the setting so far and have thought it would make a good RPG. I was going to do it with Savage Worlds but I guess I'll wait and see how the 2D20 system works out now.

Yep, this is what I've found as well, I think I have generally lost money by pledging for RPG's on Kickstarter. Even stuff that seemed like a great deal, like the Chained Coffin box set for DCC for $30, turned out to have a lot higher shipping than I had thought (another $30) - I could have ordered this product today from NKG for $35, plus $15 shipping. That being said, I was generally happy with the Modiphius project Achtung Cthulhu, where I pledged for only the in print core books at a decent price, and then got free PDF's of a gazillion unlocked supplements. So depending how highly you value PDF's, those might make it worth it for Infinity as well.

I've found that with a lot of KSers. With Modiphius you can easily see what their stuff is going for. Right now it seams to be about a wash as the cost of the single core books are less then KSer price (mutant chronicles was $65 and sells for $50 at FRP) but the extra bonus items make up for that.

 

So with infinity the $65 gets you a LE mini, Core book and players guide. Assuming you could buy the minis post KSer, which you won't, you'll find those would probably be $8, core book $50 and players book $15 based off of how their other stuff is currently priced. And I'm sure more things will be added to the base pledge too.

 

Their all in PDF pledge is a great deal and so is the all in print (if you can afford to spend that much) as you'll get each pdf for about $10.

 

Hmm I like a couple of the minis... maybe a couple of cherry-picked add-ons only here... reminder set.

I'll be happy to get add on minis for you to save on shipping.

      About this project
      League of Ancient Defenders (LOAD) is a two-team 2-6 player skirmish board game with stunning miniatures and intense gameplay modeled after popular battle arena online games. The vile forces of Chaos have invaded the island kingdom of Atlantis, humanity’s last hope. Players must leverage the unique abilities of their Heroes as they push three lanes simultaneously toward the opposing faction’s base. By destroying key enemy objectives, towers and spawn points, they will force the opposing team to abandon the battle in full retreat.
      RE-LOAD will be available in English, German, Spanish and French. Selection will be possible when the Pledge Manager goes live after the Kickstarter.

      About this project
      Welcome!
      We would like to invite you to our first on Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign dedicated to miniatures! We made a few before on other platforms, but now we are also here with new models and recast offer for all old ones. All of miniatures presented below are compatible with Fantasy Battles: The 9th Age. However you can use them in any other game you want.
      During our previous campaigns we showed our possibilities and strong orientation for reaching customers needs and vision of miniatures. Also projects presented in this campaign were started some time ago and developed with The 9th Age community to be as good as it was possible. Our very talented sculptors, artists and manufacturers are doing all their best to provide you with the best products possible. We have hope, and strongly believe, that you will enjoy what you see below.
      Your support is very important for us. While we see that our products are still needed we will run future releases. So thank you in advance to give us that possibility.
      How our process look like:
      1. 3D sculpt
       
      1b. 3D sculpt of alternative options (as option for bestsellers)
      2. Printing than casting resin models
      3. Professional painting (as special option)
       
       
      All 3D sculpts has already been made. Most resin molds also. We need your help to invest in missing production molds and materials to finish all open projects. Also stretch goals will help us raise funds to make some alternative versions and options for our miniatures, which for sure you will also like as base versions.

      Hello all! It has been a longtime dream of mine to have a line of barbarian miniatures, and I am finally going to try and make that happen via crowdfunding. This is the preview link to my campaign that has been approved and will launch on June 1, barring the need for massive overhaul or other catastrophe (perhaps invading barbarians).
       
      Barbaric Splendor Kickstarter One: Personalities (preview mode)
       
      Thanks for looking!
       
      edit: I am not sure how to get the Prelaunch tag to show in the thread title?
       
      EDIT: Campaign is live -

      I remember that the first Imbrian Arts KS had a lot of issues and delays, but I don't know whether it was eventually sorted out or not so if any previous backers have any info it would be worth speaking up.
       
      The minis look good though
