Ooh, those look nice. 

I'm already quite wealthy in scratchbuilt Elf and Dwarf fleets from the 90's, but may well be tempted by later fleets that I hadn't built earlier...

If you add a pledge level for a printed rule book and templates, I'll jump in for that now!

Ah, thanks Cat! I don't think the rules will constitute a book as such, more a booklet with the rules for unique ships coming with their own stats and special rules on cards. If you'd like to support just pledge at the No Reward level and I can quote you more accurately down the line!
There's also the lighthouse which is a nice mini!

Bold weekend to choose with Mantic bringing out Armada. Good luck though, the models look nice I hope you get a lot of interest.

Any thought of a pdf only pledge for the rules?

We had hoped to launch before Mantic, but only became aware of Armada the same time as everyone else. Oh well, such is life!

My only concern about pledge levels for the rules is I really don't know how long they will be, as a lot will be in the ship Stat Cards and I don't want to overcharge. If you wish to support as Cat has done and just pledge at the No Reward level I will get you the rules in whichever format you like

At least you can ride the wave of fantasy naval interest, pun intended!

I may well do that. I was a backer of Across the Dead Earth (which I loved) so I've kept an eye out on your guys  great to see you putting out more new stuff.

The more backers we get, the more likely it is ATDE2E will happen! :-)

Thanks for the support.

Happy Friday All!


This is now more than 50% funded but stalling over the last couple of days, so if you were thinking about backing, please do so now!

Shared this with a long time gaming friend who is contemplating jumping in.  But that will be a big decision to be made in the next few days as it is coupled with his deciding to get a 3D printer now or not.
 
I now suspect he will be perusing sale deals on printers tomorrow and Monday!

Thanks for sharing Cat! There are some genuinely great deals around at the moment on 3d printers. I have an Elegoo Mars at home and you can pick one of those up for 185 right now. Crazy times.

It may be helpful to put images of the waterline versions up on the main campaign page for folks coming by in the final 48 hours to check it out.

Are you selling the rules separately afterwards? And, will it be possible to create your own stats with them? (I think i asked the same question on FB)
