Ghetto Miniatures Kickstarter


A friend of mine is running a kickstarter to get a new game off the ground. Its set in the 70's New York and is gang vs gang skirmish game. Fans of the setting and a certain infamous movie may find it interesting.

The kickstarter is to get the first four gangs sculpted and the rulebook printed. 





Welcome to New York Bop, a new fast paced skirmish game immersing you in Gang Warfare of 1970’s New York. The year is 1974 and the streets of New York are filled with pimps and their hoes, the subway is a crime filled haven and unemployment forces young New Yorkers into a life of debauchery and violence. 

Take control of your gang, chose your weapons and defend your turf in campaigns against rival gangs, looting shops and causing mayhem wither it be in Manhattan or the Bronx. Your gang will evolve with the more battles they win, increasing their ranks and leading you on the path to becoming the King of the Rubble.

Sculpts so far.

  1. Very cool! The Warriors is still one of my favorite movies - for some reason the Ballers looked the most ominous - probably due to their face paint coupled with otherwise benign uniforms. BTW, wonder if a lone wolf like Taxi Driver could make an appearance :)

  3. These look really good! I hope he's successful, it's a great idea from a great movie. Lots of these guys would make great survivors for my zombie apocalypse.

  4. Clearly based on the Film "The Warriors" and the book of the same name. A Film I actually like quite a lot. I think there is a good idea here, in the States the war against drugs has killed more "participants" than Vietnam and Afghanistan combined. Yet we never play it as a game! Why not I ask?

    The only down side to this setting is the terrain I for one will not be building Manhattan as a Game board!

  8. Nice collection of minis on offer and certainly a couple of gangs I'd be interested in getting. But as Sir Awdry states I still haven;t finished my second gang for "AtDE" yet and desperately want to get gaming that first.

  12. A nice idea and some iconic gangs, even if the premise for a game is quite amoral.

  13. Holy cow, it's a Sho 'Nuff wargame figure. That might explain the gaping hole in my life that I never knew existed.

  14. The Warriors is my favourite film ever, still watch it every 6 months or so! Would love to see those warriors made. Can you dig it?
