Oakbound Studios from the UK are currently running a Kickstarter campaign to fund a printed rulebook for their narrative post-apocalyptic skirmish game, Factious Waste.
I picked up the PDF version of the rules just before Christmas and was very impressed by their quality, originality and presentation. One particular noteworthy feature is that they don’t include any randomisation at all (dice, cards, etc.) so the gameplay is purely tactical, with strong gang customisation and advancement elements.
The illustrated 200-page softback book is available for just £20 and there’s also a £30 gamer pledge level which includes a growing number of stretch goals which already includes and art print and a set of wonderful resin objective markers from Fogou Models. The campaign will run until 3rd April and there are more stretch goal freebies still to unlock so please do check it out. Tucked away at the bottom of the page, is the option to add any of their current range of 28mm metal post-apocalyptic figures for £10 for 5 – I’ve currently only got one of the miniatures so I’m taking the opportunity to pick up the rest of the range at a substantial discount. Geoff Sims (the project’s creator) is very approachable and the Kickstarter page and Oakbound Facebook page currently have an active discussion about what wasteland characters Geoff might sculpt next.
