Kickstarter has quickly grown to be an amazing platform that is filled with passionate individuals and teams who are looking for funds to help bring those passions from dream to reality. Each week here on House Of The Geeks we are going to take a look at one Kickstarter project we think more people should know about and hopefully even support.
I was introduced to the world of mini wargaming when my local gaming/comic book shop hosted an event for new Warmachine players. I was hooked and quickly started reading and watching everything I could get my hands on, not only about the game, but on how to assemble and paint my miniatures better. I had a lot of fun and made a lot of new friends during that Warmachine introduction, I played a little bit of Infinity and now I am hooked on X-Wing.
There are many other mini wargames on the market including some that recreate the World Wars, others delve into historical battles and some that are set in the old west, in fantasy realms, the future, and some in space. If you are interested in a genre, chances are there is a miniature wargame that will interest you.
As I am invested into mini wargaming, I was very happy to learn about a new Kickstarter from Joseph Piddington who is attempting to secure backing that will help him create Miniature Wargaming: The Movie. This documentary looks to tell the history of mini wargaming, talk to the people involved in the industry and tell the stories of those who play the games. It looks to be a fascinating documentary that I think is worth backing. You can check out the trailer below.
