BioSyndrome: A Table Top Survival Horror War Game

Recommended Posts

Fellow Wargamers,

 

I have been designing a free table top wargme in my free time and have recently launched a Kickstarter to finish the rule book. The rulebook consists of three different games, a modern wargame, a medieval/fantasy wargame, and a pen and paper version. You can use any miniatures you want to build armies with as long as you follow the basic unit basing guidelines in the rulebook or have an agreement with your opponent(s) prior to playing. Have some minis collecting dust on your shelf? Re-purpose them to fight off the zombie hordes (or eat survivors, your choice)!

 

Again, if nothing else the rule book is free to download!

Thanks for reading, Happy Wargaming!

New updates:

 

We are now at 50% funding! 

 

New backer awards have been announced and some faqs have been posted!

 

Version 1.9 will be pen and paper RPG update heavy. The basic rules for exp, character statistics, driving, bartering, and being a zombie master will be added. If you are planning on running a campaign this will be a must have update! 

 

 

Thanks again for the support!

New updates! BioSyndrome has reached it's initial funding amount! Thanks for the support! 

 

A large update has been posted on the KS page regarding a large rule book update and artwork. 

 

I will be issuing a vote at the end of my KS regarding the weapon system. As it stands now, the weapon system is a specific named one (AK47, M16, Desert Eagle, Glock ect). It has been suggested before that we move to a generic system (Assault Rifle, Shotgun, Revolver, Pistol ect). Both systems have pros and cons. The generic system tightens the rule set and makes army upgrades and custom armies easier streamlining the game. Whereas the specific weapons add flavor and more options. What do you think? Let me know, thanks!

Congrats on reaching funding! It is impressive, even with a low target, to get funding to support a game you released for free.

I was worried that no one would back a free product. Sadly it would have been easier if i actually charged for my rule book as I could then offer it as a reward.. That means that all my backers are supporting a product for the whole community, really speaks volumes of their character!

 

The game is only really 33% done.. so much to do so little time! Now it's time to go for the 1st stretch goal!

 

I appreciate the interest! Did you have any thoughts on the generic vs specific weapon systems?

Lots of new updates! I've been busy redesigning the rulebook and would love to know what everyone thinks! More pictures can be found on the kickstarter page under updates 4 and 5.

Well i've done it! Launching a small line of miniatures for units in the rulebook that cannot be found on the miniature market or anywhere else. 

 

Check out the latest update for the concept art and link to the sculptors portfolio (quite impressive). Starting with the Heavily Mutated Zombie "patient zero". As always more to follow and thanks for reading!

I plugged in on the Zombicide 2 KS comments. Thanks for the variety of zombies that can be used with the Zombicide miniatures!

 

Unfortunately, the only police and soldiers I have are from HeroClix. Sigh. :D

actually you could probably use the hero clix to play just fine. especially the rpg version. Some people have been brainstorming ideas for solo / coop play mode for the wargames and rpg version too that they would work great in. 

 

Yep the rule set would work great for any miniatures really, there's a little something for everyone. Did you say you shared it on the zombicide comments? that would be stellar, shares and likes are appreciated! 

 

The rule book has come along way, i've put my dreams and aspirations into it. A love of the hobby to be sure. Have you thought about backing? If we can get to the 2400$ stretch goal all backers at the 25$ level and above will get the *tentacle zombie miniature! (yes i know i spelled it wrong on the rule book page.. it's a work in progress)! thanks for pointing that out though, ill go fix that now ;P

A few preview renders of the 3d model. It's not quite finished yet, just a few more layers of detail and it will become a miniature master model! Check out the latest updates on the KS page for more information on how to get yours!

Wargamers: 

 

We have reached stretch goal number 1 unlocking all of the cards! I have completed the cards that I posses artwork for. The rest will be finished as Jericho finishes the art for each weapon / armor / spell. 

 

Onto the next goal: Patient Zero miniature!

first digital card pack is available! If you print out the test page and do not get a good turn out, wait for my demo video for some explanation on additional printing options and techniques. 

 

Link is on update #11

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1792322775/bio-syndrome-a-survival-horror-table-top-war-game/posts/776933

 

Obviously these are not all the cards. With the stretch goal unlocked, Jericho will begin work on the tons of missing weapons and armor when the kickstarter is finished. 

 

Hope you enjoy!

      Andowyn Thrushmoor!
      It's been awhile since I've painted a plain ol' character miniature. I spent the better part of today working on her and I’m overall pleased with how she came out. I really want to double my skill level by the time Bones V is delivered and I’m proud of my progress! Slowly but surely figuring out how to do faces, this one looks pretty okay, though her right eye is funky.
       
      Since this is my first form post, the picture is her next to my first miniature! It's about four years old and I keep it around the rest of my collection in a place of honor

      If anybody here loves cavern terrain and missed DF's first cavern KS KS2, this spring/summer around June DF will have KS6. The theme of KS6 will be Return to the Caverns and should be great fun for those who took part in KS2 or those who are new to DF.

      DF had this to say and showed the below teaser pics

      We're doing for Caverns what Dungeon of Doom did for Dungeons. A whole new batch of fun pieces to enhance your existing collection, but also completely stand-alone.

      Some of the key features:
      New Core Shapes (diagonal wall, convex curves, 1" pieces, etc)
      Passages
      Elevation (with stuff that's impossible on graph paper...)
      Negative Space pieces (and new Terrain Trays)
      Flashy Pieces (Magnets & LEDs)
      Large pieces (4x4 and larger)

      This looks like a very interesting board game with lots of new, fresh ideas and cool artwork (and nice minis - there is even a pledge level for just the minis: around 15 of them for $20 plus shipping):
       
      About this project
       

      It's a harsh but lucrative business being a mercenary out on the edge of civilization. You must explore the harsh wilderness and engage in deep tactical combat, where the decisions you make have an impact not only on your own character, but also the world around you.

      Gloomhaven is cooperative game of card-driven combat set in a persistent fantasy campaign which will change and grow as you play the game.
      There is always more to unlock and explore in the world of Gloomhaven.

      If you missed the first Gloomhaven Kickstarter (and retail sold out quickly) here is your chance. I backed that game the first time around and could not be happier with the results. Warning ... that box is heavy ...
