Learn About Our Project:

The Other Side is a cinematic wargame by Wyrd Miniatures that combines streamlined rules with the tough, tactical decisions and ruthless combat that are a staple of modern miniature gaming.

Players take control of a company of troops ranging from powerful commanders to massive titans to rank and file squads. The Other Side miniatures come preassembled, which means you can go directly from the box to the table.

Why use Kickstarter?

Wyrd has invested in The Other Side independently for a number of years, dedicating resources into game design, art, and sculpting. We've playtested the rules thoroughly and done tests for model production, including trying new molding technologies.

At this stage, most of the models are sculpted, but the goal of this Kickstarter is to ensure the game debuts as it should: with a large selection of high quality miniatures available from the start. In order to accomplish this, we need help from our great community and backers like you. This Kickstarter will help to offset the large cost of production on a project of this scope, allowing us to deliver the detailed, dynamic miniatures you want.

Our pledge levels are designed to provide backers with what they need to get started while offering flexibility in their initial investment.

At the Champion Level (below), you can start the game for $99 with a softcover rulebook and an Allegiance Box, which includes: one Commander, three Squads, Tactics tokens for your Allegiance, stat cards, bases, a Fate Deck, and a measuring tape. This is enough to play a full one Commander game (see the Gameplay section for more details).

You will be able to choose from the listed Allegiance boxes.

The Commander Pledge Level (below) includes a softcover rulebook, an Allegiance Box of your choice (see Champion level for the contents), the Titan for your chosen Allegiance (on a 120mm base), and all Commander level free Stretch Goals.

This Pledge Level gives everything you need to play a one Commander game with the added flexibility of having a Titan to field in your games.

The Dual Commander Pledge Level (below) includes two rulebooks, two Allegiance Boxes of your choice (see Champion level for the contents), the two Titans for your chosen Allegiances, and two of all Commander level free Stretch Goals.

This is the ideal entry point for two players, giving you everything two people need to play one Commander games against each other with the flexibility included by adding a Titan to their forces.

We also have the Tyrant Pledge Level available for $500. This gives the backer 4x Allegiance Boxes, 4x Titans, 1x Rulebook, and 1x Commander level free Stretch Goals. If that Stretch Goal is a free miniature, we'll give you one for each of the Allegiance you chose!

This Pledge Level is perfect for the player who wants all the Allegiances!

In addition, everyone who backs at the Champion level and above will be able to join the final stretch of playtesting for The Other Side, getting a chance to weigh in on game balance and rules clarity.

Want more than one Pledge Level? No problem! Add the cost of the pledge level to your pledge, and we will get it added via BackerKit after the Kickstarter has ended.

*Art and sculpts above may not be final.

Wyrd strongly believes in The Other Side. We are translating the rules and stat cards into six additional languages, which will be available at retail release. The available languages at launch are: French, German, Italian, Polish, Russian, and Spanish. This is in addition to English.

The rules and stat cards will be translated and made available as a free PDF download. We are only translating the rules and stat cards (not the background, stories, etc) at this time.

The Other Side features two types of stretch goals: financial goals and social goals!

Financial Stretch Goals

Every pledge we receive gives us the opportunity to release even more for the game! When our total pledged amount hits certain levels, the corresponding stretch goal below will unlock. Some of these Stretch Goals include freebies depending on your pledge level!

We have updated the map below, showing all the freebies available at the Commander level and above!

Below is a more detailed list of each Stretch Goal that has been reached! Unlocked goals are generally available as project add ons, though some also contain freebies. The freebies are available to Commander level backers (and Dual Commander backers get 2x the freebies)!

Social Stretch Goals

One of the great things about playing a wargame is the community. Playing with friends and meeting new people (and trying to defeat them in game) is part of the excitement of the game. Because of this, we want to encourage community growth.

When we hit the conditions listed below, we will add the corresponding stretch goal to the listed backers. Get the word out!

  • If there are at least 15 podcasts with episodes focused on The Other Side with links posted on our forum in the appropriate thread, we will do Breachside Broadcasts featuring The Other Side story and offer them free online.
  • If the combined total of likes of our Facebook post advertising the Kickstarter and retweets advertising this Kickstarter reaches 5,000 or more, every Backer at the Commander level will get a free Allegiance patch with their rewards. 
  • If the combined total of likes of our Facebook post advertising the Kickstarter and retweets advertising this Kickstarter reaches 10,000 or more, every Backer at the Commander level will get a free Allegiance t-shirt with their rewards.

*Art and sculpts above may not be final.

Regardless of your pledge level, you can add any of the items listed below to your pledge by increasing your pledge amount the corresponding amount. We'll confirm the specifics of what you want on BackerKit after the Kickstarter ends.

 

  

 

 

*Art and sculpts above may not be final. MSRP prices are estimates. Add ons may not come in final packaging.

The Other Side gameplay focuses on company-scale combat. Its streamlined rules are easy to pick up but provide a wealth of tactical decisions to defeat your enemies. Featuring alternating activations, the gameplay keeps you in the action in a constantly evolving battlefield.

The Other Side features the use of a deck of cards, called a Fate Deck, to resolve conflict. By utilizing random flips and a hand of cards, The Other Side gives players a high level of control over the outcomes of their actions.

Gameplay is focused on cinematic combat, focusing on exciting game effects rather than debilitating status conditions. Units can go to Glory, heightening their combat potential, and players can take advantage of Stratagems to impact the battlefield in significant ways.

More information can be found in our videos below.

You can also learn most of the gameplay rules from the video below:

You can also find a collection of rules and stat cards on our Other Side webpage!

The game can be played with a variable number of Commanders, which changes both the size of the game and the time it takes to play. At the beginning of every game, the players decide how many Commanders they wish to use in the game.

In a one Commander game, each side will field forces of around 30 models, though this number varies based on the cost of the units chosen (Titans, for example, will lower the overall model count). Each of our Allegiance boxes contain all the models you need to play a full one Commander game!

In a two Commander game, each side will field forces of approximately 45 models, varying widely based on unit choices. A player who fields multiple Titans may find themselves with far fewer, while a player who focuses on cheap units may find they have more. At two Commanders, a game will take approximately two hours to play.

Only Commanders in the Other Side are unique, allowing players to field their favorite units multiple times or to branch out and bring different units. This includes the massive Titans, allowing for very diverse forces on the tabletop.

You can check out two of your playtesters live-streaming their matches below.

All painted miniatures in the video were painted by Den of Imagination. Check out their great offerings!

*Art and sculpts above may not be final. Fireteam bases are not final and have been adjusted to be thinner.

The miniatures for The Other Side come preassembled, featuring amazing sculpts that appeal to hobbyists and gamers alike. It's never been so easy to get into a miniatures game!

These miniatures use a custom blend of PVC to create high quality, heroic 32mm scale miniatures. Breaking out of the standard creation process for PVC miniatures, we are digitally cutting our miniatures and using a new type of mold to shoot the best miniatures we can.

If you liked Wyrd's Aionus or Tortoise and the Hare preassembled miniatures, you'll love these. We have taken that process and made some changes on it, allowing for clean, highly detailed miniatures.

Below is a look at some of our early test sculpts and the concepts they were born from.

 

 

All painted miniatures above were painted by Den of Imagination. Check out their great offerings!

The minis seen above were early test runs, and our final production miniatures are of even higher quality. We have a video of these unpainted figures below, giving you a sense of the quality of the miniatures for this game.

 

Many of our models are part of multi-model Fireteam bases. Not only do these provide an easy way to move models around the table, but they also offer great basing opportunities for hobbyists.

Here is a look at a final product of the Yarazi in Update #13.

You can also check out all of the renders for this Kickstarter's models over on our webpage!

Players can create their own scenic or narrative bases using the larger Fireteam bases, blending the model bases into the larger Fireteam base.

Each unit in The Other Side brings a great potential to the table, all without the need to assemble your own minis!

We are also aware that preassembled miniatures aren't for everyone. Though we won't offer unassembled Other Side models to retail, we will make unassembled version of the units available on our webstore some time after the game goes to retail, giving players who prefer to do assembly the chance to do so.

*Art and sculpts above may not be final.

Wyrd strongly supports physical, 'brick and mortar' retailers. We understand the importance of community and having a safe, fun place to enjoy games. We are offering a special Retail Only pledge level to provide you, the retailer, an option to get in on the ground floor.

If you back using the Retail Only Pledge Level, you will be required to provide proof of your retail status and that you have a physical storefront. If you do not, your pledge will not be refunded to you and will be considered a donation (thanks!). This level is limited to one Pledge per store location.

Our Retail Only Pledge ($50) gives you two random Allegiance Boxes. These are full retail, production boxes of the game. They include everything you need to demo the game in your store and show your customers the quality of the product. With this Kickstarter, you'll be able to do this before placing an order through distribution so you can make an informed decision if this is the right product for your store and community. But it doesn't stop there!

We are working with distributors to bring you, the store, the most value we can to ensure that you are getting what you want from this Kickstarter and what you want from this game.

Those retailers that support this Kickstarter will get a special retailer kit with their reward that will include all the information they need to make an informed decision about stocking The Other Side. It will also include information on how retailers who backed this Kickstarter can, with their initial order on the game's wide launch, gain access to special edition miniatures and additional promotional items -- an offer only available to those who Pledged to this Kickstarter!

The information and special offer for backers will ensure that your store and growing community, via the distributors*, will be able to tailor your wants and interests with Other Side products, including items that would otherwise not be available for sale to the general public.

We would like to heartily thank all of the distributors listed below for partnering with Wyrd in this unique endeavor to work closer with the retail community. Thank you!

Wyrd will continue to create additional releases for The Other Side beyond the Kickstarter, ensuring that stores have exciting new products to promote sales beyond the initial Kickstarter offering.

*You must choose a distributor from the list provided, and it is from them that you will receive your Retail Pledge. If you do not see your distributor listed, feel free to have them contact us directly.

Once the campaign has concluded, actual shipping costs will be available in BackerKit based on your pledge level, add ons, and freebie stretch goals. Please remember that your shipping costs are not included in your pledge!

You will be responsible for paying shipping costs and any local taxes or customs that may be incurred, but we are utilizing fulfillment houses to send rewards to backers. We will use as many fulfillment houses around the world as we realistically can, allowing us to minimize shipping expenses for our backers. 

We believe that utilizing BackerKit and fulfillment houses will allow us to deliver this project quickly, accurately, and at minimal costs to our backers.

We will not sell any Other Side products until after backer rewards have begun shipping.

Please see the Terms and Conditions below for more information.
