Today I wanted to share a Kickstarter project with you, from Gary (of Natfka fame). This looks like a tremendous project and they are already doing incredibly well! Let's take a look at the Genesys Project:
The Genesys Project Kickstarter
The Genesys Project is a customizable tabletop miniature game where you create and customize your faction to fit and match your playstyle, miniatures you already own, or want to get and customize. Creating your narrative extends further than just creating your faction and background, but continues through gameplay earning mission awards and progression that takes you through the Ages of the Genesys Project. Heroes are born through game play, and in the same manner as your faction, gain new skills and technology allowing them to adapt and expand both your narrative and army. Weapons, armor, and even spell-like Powers are all customizable within the game.
The game has been in development now for the past 6 years, with over 900 gamers world wide like you registering to take part a 14 month Open Beta during that time.
We are launching the Birth of Genesys through kickstarter starting July 12th at 12pm EST/ 5pm BST. We appreciate you swinging through our Kickstarter to check us out and explore the unique opportunity that is The Genesys Project.
The Genesys Project – CORE RULES
Overview of the Genesys Words
Preparing your Forces
Post-game Results for Campaign Play
And eight, pre-made 1st AGE factions, ready for you to start playing
As the name of this book suggests, these are the core rules for playing games of The Genesys Project. This is a unit-based skirmish game, so the rules are swift, and still contain a level of granularity to provide deeply satisfying games. The inclusion of the ready-made 1st AGE factions gives you a taste of what is possible when you move into the 1st AGE book.
The Core Rules are one set of rules that all the Ages of The Genesys Project will use.

5- Pre-made 1st AGE factions, 1 for each DomainThe Birth of Genesys (1st AGE) book is where The Genesys Project really sets itself apart. Most wargames provide players with a pre-determined army list of units to choose from, with little or no opportunity to adjust them to better fit a playstyle or miniatures collection. Here you get to choose from five different Domains, then work through and actually create each of your unit types (including their stats and traits) to create a faction that is unique to you.
Dave Taylor Miniatures is working behind the scenes on this Kickstarter to make certain that things are done right. Dave has been in this industry for a long time and many of you know him or of him. He recently ran his own Kickstarter and ran the Terrain Essentials Kickstarter as well. Both were enormously successful due to his knowledge within the industry. He is working hard on final editing, Kickstarter management, layout, printing, and will be organizing our distribution on fulfillment of the Kickstarter.
We thank you for your support, and please share with your friends.
