HELP US LAUNCH LUNAR
We’re launching LUNAR with Black Site Backroom, our new program for creating independent miniatures games. During the pre-order period we’re offering discounted pricing and special launch event bonus items. Together we can work to bring LUNAR to the tabletop.
Imagine yourself as the commander of a unit of astronauts on The Moon. You’re thousands of miles from Earth with orders to protect the vital assets of the homeland. You and other astronauts like you seek to defend your territory and resources from rival factions and countries. Choose from various ranks, classes, and even some named characters, and muster your forces!
Exclusive Backroom Pricing
Our pre-order launch event prices are discounted from the eventual MSRP. Many of these products may not go on sale for a while, so this is the cheapest they’ll ever be!
First Men on the Moon
Lunar will be shipped out to all those who ordered during this event first. Normal retail availability won’t begin until this event closes and all pre-orders have been shipped. We’re not sure exactly when that will be, so it’s best to secure your copy of Lunar sooner rather than later!
Launch Event Bonus Items
Unique items and products will be automatically added to any orders of the Lunar Core Box placed during the Launch Event. While not exclusive, these products won’t be made available until later, after the initial preorders have been fulfilled. Now is your chance to get them first!
Support the Black Site Backroom
We’re aiming to launch many more titles and products through our Black Site Backroom Program. With your help, we can make this Launch Event successful and help foster a great foundation for other projects, such as Anomaly, and other games from independent, new writers. Are you a writer with a game and would like to apply for some Backroom Dealings?

A verified phantom stalking the Lunar surface, not much is known about Vladmir. The only people who have seen him and lived have been on the other side of a satellite’s observation camera.
Our resin sprues have been a joy to make. At $23,000, we’ll commit to making an alternate weapons set of sprues that also include space-greeblies to outfit your astronauts, settlements, and rockets!

Lunar consists of 3-5 miniatures per side and is played on a 2’×2′ area. Gameplay is based on a simple D6 mechanic that is familiar to many tabletop gamers. You’ll set about building your teams with character, item and equipment cards and battling other players for control of mining and supply nodes. At the heart of Lunar is a fast paced and BRUTAL system of low gravity combat with a focus on melee and minimal ranged combat. The unforgiving and dangerous nature of engaging the enemy on the Moon is directly translated onto the tabletop!
Each unit (a single miniature) has its own card with its full range of stats such as movement, mass and resilience. After choosing your unit you may add item and weapon cards
The concept of “mass” is central to the mechanics of Lunar, each unit and item has a mass value that affect combat, movement and damage.
THE UNITS & FACTIONS
Lunar has a variety of astronauts, unmanned, and heroic units. Each are displayed on the tabletop with highly detailed resin miniatures. A full range of miniatures and (in the future) vehicles are planned for the various factions so those who are more hobby focused will be rewarded with a ton of great minis to paint!
PLAYING A CAMPAIGN
Lunar is designed for narrative campaign play and features a fun, simple framework for playing linked games. Players can upgrade their crews with new members and better equipment by purchasing shuttle resupplies and upgrading their settlement with additional enhancments.
Multipart Resin Astronauts!
Lunar will feature a range of multipart resin astronauts. Each faction will receive a multipart set of legs and bodies that can use a universal sprue of weapons and items. Based on a mix of historical designs from the 60’s 70’s and 80’s we’ve strived hard for a blend of historical accuracy and “what if” scifi fun.
The kits are designed to be completely interchangeable with each other for modelers to create truly unique looking crews.
When is this shipping?
We have most of the core components printed and in our hands- the rest are in production and on their way! We have committed to an initial print run now and if we exceed that we have additional runs lined up. We are expecting to be able to ship the core game out to backers in early August. Any preorder bonuses will ship separately.
UK orders will be grouped and shipped over to our friends in the UK at Spectre Miniatures. They will be dispatching all UK orders from there. Please allow some additional time for us to collect and ship these.
“Backroom Pricing” is our gift to you! The backers. These tiers are offered at a discounted price exclusive to this campaign. They will be more expensive when offered up for general sale later this year, so back during this campaign to save!
Is this a pre-order or a crowdfunding project?
This is absolutely NOT a crowdfunding project. Lunar is a fully finished game with most components either in production at our printer or sitting in our warehouse waiting for your purchase! Because of this your card will be charged immediately.
Why the “Stretch Goals” though?
We really like to support the people who support us. Offering free goals is a great way for folks to get early access to these items we were planning to release anyway. The more copies of the core game that we sell the more cool stuff we can offer!
So I bought the game, read the PDF and its not really for me. Id like a refund.
Please understand that once you download the PDF, we will be UNABLE to refund you for your pre-order purchase. If you have questions about your order or extenuating circumstances, please email us at [email protected]
I Hate Exclusives!
So do we! However we like to give back to the people who support us early on from the start. Our plan is to offer all of the items in this campaign for sale in the future.
What about PDF Rules? Just sell me the rules and cards
The core box comes with PDF copies of the core rules for use with tablets during gaming. These will all be watermarked with your name and order number. We won’t be selling a PDF of the rules and cards by themselves at this time.
How can I get these sweet preorder bonuses?
All you need to do is buy a eligible bundle deal! Any of them will clearly note if they come with the preorder bonuses
