I designed the vehicles above. Word Forge Game's Dominik Kasprzycki
did the composition itself. See more of his fantastic art here: www.facebook.com/Art-of-Domini…
For the past year, I've been very busy making vehicles and structures for Absolute Decimation
, an upcoming 15mm tabletop miniatures game
designed by Chris Reynolds
and published by Word Forge Games
. In short, Absolute Decimation pits two or more players to lead their combat drones
The game's backstory centers around Digipaths, powerful men and women who command squadrons of drone tanks, walkers, hovercrafts, and aircraft. Humanity is scattered in small communities after a terrible war between mankind and AI. Digipaths, who once served humanity against AI, are now on their own. These Digipaths are separated into many factions, each with their own goals and ideologies. Some want power and to crush the weak while others want to protect and preserve what's left of the world. Each faction is gearing up for war to determine which ideology will dominate the world.
Gameplay-wise, Absolute Decimation offers a programming orders activation system, balanced points-free list building, and the ability to build units during the game.
As this game focuses on vehicles, I designed a variety of units, from frontline tanks with railguns to heavy artillery tanks with three barrels. I've also designed resource vehicles and the mighty Assembler which builds tanks right on the battlefield. It can be seen above as a smaller tank is rolling off its ramp.
The game itself is nearing completion. The rules are being finalized and the vehicles are being prepped to be produced! Artwork is coming in from
many different artists to bring life into the game's world. However the game isn't ready to be released yet. We plan to have a Kickstarter campaign to fund and release the game. The campaign is scheduled for Q4 of this year, so be on the look out for that! I'll post updates as we are nearing the KS date.
