Surveys Now Open and New Minis Pics!
9 months ago – Tue, Jun 09, 2020 at 06:26:55 PM

Over half of you have already completed your surveys: Thank you!!! 

For those of you who have not noticed, we opened the BackerKit surveys last week and you have until the end of August to complete your survey. Failure to complete your survey by the deadline will result in refund and removal from the project. We need completed surveys so that the project can move forward.

Also, we will lock quantities next week. If there is an add-on that you very much wanted, please complete your survey this week before we set limits on everything.

Please Read Carefully

When completing your survey, please read the descriptions of each item carefully. There are bundles offered in the survey that combine various expansions and items together; those of you who selected a reward level that included the Double Ace rewards* will want to take a close look at the various items that are automatically included in your pledge.

* And don't miss the Double Ace Upgrade Bundle if you're already getting the Double Ace rewards. Darryll created this bundle that includes the items not found in the Double Ace rewards for those of you who don't want to miss out on any of the minis or other accessories!

If you have any questions, please email for support.

More Painted Minis!

Even though we're all working from home, that hasn't stopped us from working. Ben has been painting new minis and I drove to his place to pic up the latest work. (Technically, I drove to Steve's house to grab a few manuscripts, then drove to Ben's house, and after a total of three hours of driving I made it home. That's the most I have driven in months!)

Enjoy the pics, and we'll be back later this week with even more minis pics! I happen to have the complete set of Car Wars Sixth Edition minis that Ben has painted here at home, so I'll take time this week to snap pics of a lot of them.

More Painted Miniatures, Digital Box Mockup, and T-Shirts
10 months ago – Sat, May 23, 2020 at 02:26:44 AM

We're still aiming to launch the BackerKit survey on June 1 (as mentioned in this project update), and everything continues to move forward. The factory is working on what parts of the game that they can, and next week we're going to be reviewing the boxes, rules, and other components as we get closer to submitting everything to the factory for tooling and production. 

While Gabby, Sam, Randy, and Steve have been hard at work on the finishing touches, Ben took time to paint two more of the miniatures that the factory sent over. With all of us working from our homes, it's a little more challenging to stage new photos, but we do have these two shots that Ben sent over yesterday.

Also on the "look at the pictures" front, we have these digital mockups that Gabby created of the core game box. As you can tell, we have so much space to work with that we gave the box two "fronts" to make those illustrations as large as we could manage.

New T-Shirts

In other news, we're currently running a t-shirt campaign here on Kickstarter and there's even a Car Wars shirt design offered in the project. Please click here to visit the new project and get a look at all of the designs that have been unlocked so far!

Any Questions?

As always, please let us know if you have any questions. You can ask here in the comments, or feel free to email and the team will answer as best they can.

Stay safe and healthy, everyone! We'll be back soon with the latest news on Car Wars Sixth Edition once the surveys are opened.

More Painted Minis!
11 months ago – Sat, Apr 18, 2020 at 05:38:43 AM

We hope everyone out there is safe and staying well. Our team has transitioned to work-from-home, and Car Wars continues to move forward. Sam, Randy, and Gabby have been checking the cards, boxes, and rules, and everything is closer to the final review stage. (With so many cards, and the fact everyone is working remotely, it's taking a little longer than usual to check, recheck, and double-check the cards.)

While they're on those components, Ben has been painting minis and sent new pics. Enjoy these snapshots of Ben's most recent paintwork!
