Factious Waste has arrived on Kickstarter after 4 years of testing, refining, destroying and honing.

Factious Waste Kickstarter

Trash Runners,
their glamorous mission? Delivering precious tons of household refuse across the barren earth of outworld.

Form up your posse for adventure as you head across the desolate wastelands. Face down rival gangs trying to steal your cargo, barbaric tribes defending ancestral hunting grounds, anarchic revolutionaries raging against the machine and crazed enforcers wielding deadly judgement.

This is the world of Factious Waste, a cinematic tabletop skirmish game which blends strategy with narrative roleplay. Factious Waste is set in a near-future dystopia, drawing on the traditions of classic comics and action movies from the 80s and giving them a twist for the 21st century.

The principles of the game fit on a couple of pages. Characters have six core statistics which combine to affect the outcome of their actions. Characters with high Decisiveness activate before those with a lower value and models can perform a number of actions during their activation equal to their Stamina rating.

The majority of the rules section is made up of six action tables: Movement, Relational (interaction with environment and other models), Shooting, Grappling, Driving and Reacting to the actions of other models. This allows characters to do anything from jumping between buildings to programming machinery, interrogating enemy models to high speed car chases. All in a concise and easy-to-reference format. We've even produced a super-slim reference booklet so you don't need to carry the large book around with you.

With twenty five scenarios included in the rulebook, a strong emphasis on objectives and a comprehensive campaign system Factious Waste instinctively plays out as an engrossing narrative. Players have to work their posses to their characters' strengths and plan their strategy carefully. With combat only one element of the game the stealth, leadership and charisma of your characters all play a crucial role in achieving your objectives.

A Factious Waste scenario typically takes between 1 and 1.5 hours. Games take place on a 3' square board so can be played where space is at a premium. Posse creation is simple 3-step process and the War for 1984 and Faction Packs come with pre-generated posses allowing you to get started right away.

Full Campaign System: Posses earn experience, gain skills, acquire traits, take and heal injuries, buy, sell and steal equipment, report each other to the authorities, customise their vehicles, recruit new members and take part in many other activities in a comprehensive yet simple between-game sequence.

The KICKSTARTER is running now and ends on the 22nd October. There are four pledge levels- rulebook only, miniatures only, boxed starter set and completionist, with plenty of add-ons and stretch goals to add extra dimensions to the game.

Yo Fimm! The figures look great in this game. Weird and odd but in a good way. They make a great set!

That's that feel of a PA environment, bits and pieces to rebuild.

Following a re-think of the release schedule the pdf rulebook will be available next week. The live campaign 'War 1984' will go live at the same time and the first miniatures release should happen around the beginning of December. Printed rulebooks are planned for pre-orders in February.

Yes indeed. But it will be a slow process a drip at a time. I have a dozen of 'the best' from the KS picked and almost ready to go to the caster. Any income from sales of those will go towards the next set etc. Need to sell a few more pdfs first though!

Hi Bobscene,

Sorry, I hadn't seen your entry- it looks fab. Nice to see the Grenadier Future Warriors on it too, I've been using them as my demo minis!
I don't know of anyone else who entered so congratulations, that makes you the winner! Send me a PM with your address and I'll dig out a prize for you. :)

Fresh new cover art from Simon Lee Tranter completes the artwork for the print rulebook. Planning for a rulebook-only Kickstarter in March or April.
