Parallax: Warbands on Kickstarter

Parallax: Warbands is a new fast-paced skirmish miniatures game now on Kickstarter. Players compete with warbands and try to claim their own objectives while foiling your opponent’s plans. Warbands are made up of 4 – 8 models and you can use miniatures from any of the 6 factions in the game. Your warband selections count as they greatly impact on which abilities and skills you have access to during a game. Check out the Kickstarter video below.

The warbands need to complete objectives based on contract cards during a game. At the start of a game the players choose their contract cards and earn victory points for completing the contracts, but can also lose points for failing to complete their contracts. I like the contract dynamic as it should keep each game interesting.

Features of the Game:

  • Six unique factions
  • Five specialized classes
  • Two different ways to play:
    – Campaign mode – build your characters from the ground up by choosing attributes, skills and progression paths
    – Personality mode – compose your Warband from a wide selection of pre-made characters
  • More than 100 distinct skills and abilities for character creation
  • character advancement as you play
  • 44 Contract Cards
  • Streamlined d10 System, where injuries impact characters as the battle progresses
  • Beautifully detailed miniatures made out of high-quality resin
