    About this project Meet Thrawn, the battle hardened, slayer of evil, that has seen more war than any other barbarian in his clan. Or any other known clan, for that matter. If you were to find yourself surrounded by demons, Thrawn is the one you'd want by your side. This is the first bust I've had printed, and here it is*: *I will be going over this, and the other prints, with clay, smoothing out parts, adding details, and basically doing some quality control, before getting them mold/cast. Resh, the Chaos King. He's been marching his armies, of unspeakable horrors, across the land, taking everything they touch. If he's not stopped soon, he will be too powerful to face at all. This is Raynard. Much younger than Thrawn, but the only human brave enough to face Resh, and his evil horde of creatures. He's seen enough war to make most men give up on humanity, but Raynard doesn't give up Ever. The stretch goals! At $4000 you will get access to a female Necromancer, one of Resh's Most trusted advisors, and at $5000, an unamable horror, one of Resh's monstrous army. While these haven't been completed yet, you can expect the same level of design quality, and detail, you've seen in the original 3. These will be printed by Entrescan, then molded and cast in resin, by Trollforged. I'm doing my best, to design some really cool, and varied, busts, that should be a lot of fun to paint, and look great when you're done with them. My goal here, is to raise the funds needed, to print, mold, cast, package, and ship these busts to your door. In order to keep shipping costs down, I'm going with Fedex International, as they seem to be the cheapest, without forcing me to get a mailing permit ($450) before even mailing anything out. Doing this will keep costs down, but I'm not going to know how much shipping will be, until I get all the orders in. If 50 busts need shipped, they will charge one price, if 75 need shipped, they will charge a completely different price. This means I have no way of knowing exactly what to charge for shipping. But I will keep you updated on this, as numbers develop.

  6. Hi friends: After hard months of working, we´ve improved the game Iron League Blacks Stadium and the art has changed. Mechs and miniatures are amazing now. The board game has a new full cooperative campaign with map, scenary and enemies generation. The competitive mode continues and has been improved. So, we also want to change the title of the game, and this is: IRON WARS In July on Kickstarter. Soon more news.

    Do yourself a favour and take a look at what's on offer even if you've not backed one of Stonehavens projects before. Lots of unique and fun concepts scattered throughout, Plus they've done things a bit differently and have everything already sculpted and shown. Love the cloaked mysterious strangers.
  10. About this project Overview Help us launch our first line of plastic miniatures for the tabletop games we all play and love. Run by a family of gamers, Role 4 Initiative brings decades of experience in gaming and design. You've seen our dungeon tiles and polyhedral dice, now we wish to bring that same quality and value to the table with 28mm high-detail pre-painted plastic miniatures. Starting off with some of the most common player and monster types (Humans, Orcs, Zombies, and Skeletons), we will be producing all of our minis in sets of 6 or more per category, so you can easily and cheaply outfit your game with the figures you need. Our goal is to bring a very highly detailed set of miniatures, with excellent paint jobs for a reasonable price. We all love gaming, but we're not all great artists. So, we will always provide miniatures that are fully assembled, professionally painted, and ready to use. Our minis are made from a PVC material that provide both durability and flexibility. We also have gone to great lengths to bring as much realism as possible by providing proper anatomical proportions in a 60:1 scale. The Process First, we thought about some of the most memorable encounters of our games, wishing we had some appropriate miniatures to represent the characters and monsters in the story. Then we envisioned what these characters would look like and hired artists to create 3D models, 2D renderings, and background scenery that fit our stories. But made sure they could easily fit your stories too. Finally, we took these models and renderings to our factory to create the plastic injection molds from which we were able to produce the painted samples you see below. What you get for your support: Set #1 - Human Adventurers Concept design: Set 1: Human Adventurers Production Samples: Male Viking Warrior Female Blademaster Male Cleric Male Ranger Male Wizard Female Archer

    About this project A Song of Ice & Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game is a competitive miniatures game for two or more players. Each player controls one of the Great Houses of Westeros, commanding battlefield units, recruiting legendary Heroes, and manipulating the political stage, in the attempt to claim the greatest prize of all: The Iron Throne. Featuring House Stark and House Lannister, the Starter Set comes with over one hundred amazing, preassembled miniatures that are ready to play out of the box! All-new sculpts are based off original art created for the game by our crew under the direct supervision of George R.R. Martin and Dark Sword Miniatures, to ensure that the game delivers what fans have been envisioning for years. The Stark vs Lannister Starter Set is a perfect introduction to a new miniatures game. With accessible and streamlined gameplay designed by Eric M. Lang and Michael Shinall, A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game features 5 different Game Modes, Army Building and Customization options, and choices of Commanders and Attachments. This Set packs a lot of gameplay for 2 players! An example of the Starter Set miniatures painted. Note that minis come unpainted! The loyal followers of the Direwolf Banner rally to defend the North! Miniatures come unpainted. Just before starting a game, players must build their armies, based on an agreed upon amount of points. Using these points, players forge the core of their army with powerful Combat Units, such as the Stark Sworn Swords or Lannister Guards into their army. Each of these units has its own strengths and weaknesses. 3D Render of the Stark Sworn Swords. 2 copies of this unit are included in the Starter Set! 3D Render of the Lannister Guards. 2 copies of this unit are included in the Starter Set! Combat Unit cards Attachments A player can also augment these units with powerful Attachments, which range from generic additions, like the Lannister Guard Captain, to legendary figures such as Ser Gregor Clegane: The Mountain. 3D Renders of Robb Stark, Grey Wind and Ser Gregor 'The Mountain' Clegane Greatjon Umber attached to the Umber Berserkers

  14. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1946588239/super-chibi-round-3?ref=hero_thanks What's Super Chibi Round 3? It's the next step in the Super Chibi miniatures line. What is Super Chibi? It's a shared universe that spans four interesting worlds, created by MidKnight Heroes. Each world has its own style and flare but is 100% pure Chibi. The Super Chibi worlds have everything from mecha and cyborgs to monsters and fantasy. Super Chibi are HQ 30mm multi-part resin miniatures they can be used for board games, role-playing games or simply collector's pieces. The sky is the limit! The Super Chibi Round 3 Kickstarter introduces three more characters from the worlds in the Super Chibi universe. These characters are from the world of Super Chibi Sector 7 and Super Chibi Tacticts, and can be used in any board game or Role Playing Game. In this Kickstarter, we are asking for help in creating these three new characters; Shin, Absolute Valentine and Deyanni. This Kickstarter will cover the expense of taking them from their mastered sculpts to the mold and casting process and help in providing us with funds to help produce additional figures, with an aim to populate the worlds of Super Chibi. Just like in all our Kickstarter's we will be including a book in Super Chibi Round 3, Super Chibi Origins. This time, it will tell the stories of our three main characters in their respective worlds.The book will include two short stories that will explain the world of Super Chibi Sector 7 and Super Chibi Tactics. Just like all of our books, it will be published by MONOLITH and after the Kickstarter will be sold on their site.
  15. This project is designed to fund the production of a plastic injection mold, which will enable us to mass produce 32mm fantasy table top fauns. Summary After rgdgaming's first initial production runs with the Ghoul King and the Minotaur Brute, we wanted to create our first ten man box set, featuring our faun renders in plastic. Our goal is to provide a ten man box set so players have the option to field tribal archers, javelin throwers, and miscellaneous warriors using fauns. Initial Sketches of Fauns Based off our sketches, our renderer proposed that we use a 3 in 1 pose for the torso, which allows the faun to be armed with a bow, a javelin, or a sword and shield. We initially played with the idea of rocks underneath, but for the convenience of the player we eliminated them. We loosely based the fauns off the idea of thracians, whom were valued for their skirmish warfare. Faun Faun without Rock The project was promising, but we knew that modelers would eventually want a variety of options to choose from. We started with some different heads and a female counterpart. This led to some sketches below. Faun Add Ons Females are sorely under represented in many tribal type armies, so we tried to combine huntress concepts, such as the cloth along the thighs, longer hair, and agile frame. We are looking for multiple head types to go with the torso, and a new female torso to match the male counterpart and weapons Proposal for the Sprue We have been given multiple quotes for the .CAD design and we have two options: a simple sprue featuring two torsos, with all the options for bow, javelins, shield, heads and accessories for around $200-$300 designed, or we can try one sprue with ten times the amount of accessories for around 2k. The larger we make the design, the more we have to account for the mold design. One sprue with ten models would be ideal. Who are We Making These For? The faun box set is intended to offer Kings of War players the ability to field tribal archers and javelin throwers for their Herd army. Though the other is the apparent lack of faun miniatures on the market. We wanted to open up an opportunity later for a new box set, which would allow the fauns to adapt the thracian Rhomphaia, the miniature version of the deadly falx. With the lack of armor they would make an ideal spirit walker. Put this together, and you have an incredible table top army in the works. How are These Being Made? When weighing resin vs plastic we had to pick and choose the option that allows us to provide a great model set at a price that people appreciate. Resin is cheaper to make a mold for, but costs several times more material wise than ABS plastic for example. So we decided to shoot for an injection mold. Injection molds allow machines to make plastic impressions at a rate that is far faster than resin casting. As a result, it is far less labor intensive. This makes it relatively cheap to use no matter which country you enlist to make the product To design the mold blue print, we are enlisting a .cad designer from http://camppixel.com/. To make the injection mold and miniatures, we are working with http://www.kamings.com/ (has done work with previous kickstarters, and work for our minotaurs) A professional renderer and 3D sculptor. To avoid wasting the funds on a bad mold, we will be testing the .cad design with a rapid prototype in the US, giving us a good clue to the viability of the sprue. From here we can refine the mold. What Do We Need? $2900-$4000 for the mold $200-$2000 for the .cad design $500-$800 for the option of extra bits, heads, and torsos Cost of materials and shipping of the product will be handled by RGD GAMING LLC to satisfy the minimum order needed to make this project happen. What Do You Get? For a $1 or $5 contribution Personal credit will be given in this products production For a $25 contribution 1 10 Model Faun Box Set (Retail SRP 34.99) (separate shipping and handling applies). For a $50 contribution 3, 10 Model Faun Box Set (separate shipping and handling applies). For a $100 Contribution 6, 10 model Faun box set (separate shipping and handling applies). Availability of Shipping If we can mail it, we will try for you, whether you are in Canada, or Cambodia. Do note that postal performance varies from country to country and tracking may not be available for lower end shipping. Customs may be required. Mainland US and territories $6 Canada $16 Europe and rest of the world Per Quote Timeline A realistic estimate is somewhere between 4-6 months. We have cut down the time it takes with our initial renders, but we have to take into account production time of models, changes, and revisions of the mold. There will also be the communications and forwarding of shipments. Risks and challenges Our biggest challenge is funding the initial plastic injection mold for this project. Plastic injection molds are cheaper than steel molds but offer comparable precision, is ideal for mass production, and pairs well with plastic models. Resin offers cheaper molding opportunities, but is not ideal on a cost per model basis. What we have done to make this project relatively easy is carefully vetting companies and partners for quality. As a result, we have many of the crucial elements a wargaming company needs. A concept artist A professional 3D sculptor (for the renders) A .CAD designer (blue print for the mold) A production company who can make the injection mold and produce the miniatures Initial renders and sketches paid for in advance Most importantly, a retail company who is dedicated to timely results To insure funds for the mold are not squandered, we will be prototyping the .cad files with local production companies, before green lighting the injection mold. The process is cheap and offers a quick turn around (5-7 days). We estimate the project will take 4-6 months to allow time for the design and production of the mold, add ons for the miniature sprue and shipping from mainland china to the US. From here we can label and ship products from the United States. A lot of the time will be cut down because of the initial time and investment we have already committed toward the faun project.
  16. About this project Painted by - May Aguilar Andreu of MayArt Newly Cast Bust In 2016, our son who has Down syndrome graduated from high school. Most of the options for the disabled are limited so we decided to create our own opportunities for him. My wife left her career and we started Boyd's Toys. We are a small, family run business that specializes in resin cast figures and commercial printing. We do our own 3D printing, mold making, vacuum and pressure casting. John Boyd has over 30 years of printing and design experience and his favorite past time is table top games. We started creating our own figures in resin about 18 months ago on a 15 mm project called Chronicles of the Wayfarer. What is this project? Chronicles of the Wayfarer is a 15 mm war-game that has been under development for over a year now. It has two complete armies to support it and two more on the way. We have decided to release four busts to help raise funds and create a fan base to continue the development of CotW, so stay tuned ... three more are coming. Below you will find a sample selection of our upcoming release of Chronicles of the Wayfarer. These are 15 mm leaders of the Kilnites. Left to right: Knight of the Kiln, War Screamer, Shield Legion, and Crossbowmen Leader. These are submissions from a recent painting contest that we sponsored. For the first 48 hours we will be offering a free 30mm figure of the Lawgiver, "Unmasked". This figure will only be available in one of two ways and will never be sold by us after this Kickstarter. Anyone ordering a bust in the first 48 hours will receive one free. Anyone sharing our Kickstarter announcement on our Facebook page will be entered for a chance to win one of 10 figures. Anyone participating in the Kickstarter will have the ability to purchase additional figures. Once this campaign is done this version of the Lawgiver will be retired and his mask goes back on.

    Link: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/cmon/zombicide-green-horde/ Zombicide: Green Horde is a cooperative board game for 1 to 6 players that is both a standalone game, and fully compatible with Zombicide: Black Plague and its expansions! Players control a party of medieval fantasy survivors as they fight to rid the land of an invasion of zombie orcs controlled by the game itself. Survivors find weapons, learn spells, battle zombies, and gain experience. The more experienced they get, the more powerful they become, but the more zombies rise to face them! Zombicide: Green Horde expands upon the fantasy universe introduced by Zombicide: Black Plague. A new group of Survivors of different species will bring their unique expertise to the fight against the undead armies threatening to crush the kingdom. As they explore the ravaged villages, Survivors gather all manner of equipment to aid them in their quest. From swords, hammers, bows, and armor, to magic scrolls and flasks of dragon bile! All of that equipment is neatly displayed in each Survivor's plastic dashboard, with appropriate slots for each type of card, as well as trackers for wounds, skills, and experience. Some of the equipment in Green Horde have a special synergy with other equipment. For example, carrying a Norse Sword is certainly not bad at all. However, it will become a lot more effective, rolling 2 extra dice, if you also manage to equip a Norse Shield on your other hand! The Survivors will need to be well prepared to deal with the new menace they'll face: Orc Zombies! When the black plague hit the orc tribes, it spread like wildfire, creating a swarm of undead brutes. Orc zombies are stronger than their human counterparts, being able to tear apart the most resilient of Survivors. An attack from an Orc Walker deals 2 wounds, while the attack of an Orc Fatty or Abomination deals a whopping 3 wounds! The little Goblin Runners only deal 1 Wound per attack, but they are fast and numerous, so don't judge them by their size. And finally, while the Orc Necromancer is not very deadly in itself, you'll want to eliminate it quickly, as its powers bring even more Orc Zombies onto the board. As lethal as the Orc Zombies are, probably the scariest thing about them is their ability to launch surprise attacks by unleashing an overwhelming horde against the Survivors. Every time an Orc Zombie spawn card is drawn, one extra zombie of the indicated type is added to a "Horde area" outside the board. As the game progresses, players will watch with dread as the looming threat of the horde grows in number, just out of sight. When an "Enter the Horde!" card is drawn, all miniatures in the Horde area are placed in the spawning Zone. The situation just got a lot more dire! To give them a fighting chance against the green horde, the Survivors have gotten their hands on a mighty trebuchet! This ingenious catapult can hurl all manner of payloads across great distances, striking powerful blows against the undead invaders. This siege engine is extremely difficult to operate, requiring 3 actions to either push it to the next zone, or to fire it against the enemy. However, the Trebuchet can fire at any zone in the game (and even against the looming Horde), with no regard to distance or line of sight. Survivors can also choose among 3 types of ammunition to use, from a scattershot that can decimate a swarm of Walkers, to a boulder that can kill an Abomination if aimed right! Zombicide: Green Horde expands the action into the outskirts of the kingdom, where the villages blend with picturesque crops and hedges. The crops have withered in the abandoned villages, and some streets are flooded with the irrigation water, but these features create new challenges and opportunities for Survivors. Waterhole zones slow down the Survivors (and douse Dragon Fire), but some of their edges are steep ledges that Zombies are unable to climb out of, forcing them to make a detour while you run for safety. Hedges block line of sight, but not movement, allowing Survivors to play a dangerous game of hide and seek with the Zombies (however, you never know what might be waiting on the other side of a hedge).
  19. About this project I already sell a range of buildings that feature tubes and these are some of my most popular items. The downside to these existing building designs is that they require Pringle tubes sourced by the customer. I have wanted to expand this line for quite some time but did not want to continue to rely on the use of Pringle tubes. I want to switch to a more reliable source of tubes that will also allow multiple sizes to be used in the buildings to provide more variety. These new buildings are a product of these development ideas, with the majority of the new buildings using at least one size of card tube in the design. A major improvement with this range of new buildings is that this time the tubes will be provided as part of the building kits. They all share a common design theme allowing any and all of them to look at home when placed together on a table top. I have also included a high level of detail on these buildings. The aim of this Kickstarter is to raise the funds to order a large supply of the card tubes. For economic reasons, these need to be ordered in from overseas. The shipping fees and import add a considerable amount onto the price, however these costs will be defrayed on a large order, improving the value for the money. Offering these buildings initially as a Kickstarter allows a large order base to be developed to provide the best economics. Therefore, ordering in a large amount allows me to price my buildings at a very fair price for the level of detail, size and quality that you will receive. The majority of these building include my standard LED lighting system in red, blue or green. This time the lighting is optional, the buildings have been designed to hide the LEDS and holes for the builds, so if the buildings do not have the lights in place you cannot see the LED fixtures. This is a significant improvement over my first Kickstarter designs where the lights were placed on the outside of the building and needed covers to direct the light and hide the fixtures. The battery cases are held in place inside the building using high quality branded Velcro. Each set of lights require 2xAA batteries and I recommend Duracell or a similar high quality branded battery. If you do not wish to have the lighting kits you will be able to opt out of them after the Kickstarter on your questionnaire. Another aim of this Kickstarter is to increase my range of buildings with internal access for game play. To this end I have designed many of the buildings with removable roofs, please note not all of the buildings have this feature. Like the lighting I have designed this feature to be optional. The buildings with the feature will come with it as standard but you will be able to glue the roof in place if desired. If you intend to make use of this feature combined with the lighting you will have to neatly arrange the wires inside of the buildings so you can have hassle free access to the inside. This is straight forward as the wires are easy to manipulate and glue in place. These buildings are designed for 28mm wargames. They are also suitable as building kits for display and hobbyists. I recommend building these with PVA glue for the wood sections and tubes and Superglue with activator for the wires and bulbs. This Kickstarter has a large range of buildings ranging from simple to complex. To help with your selection I have added a difficulty key. This is found at the bottom of the image of each building. The key works on a 1-5 scale with 1 being a simple straight forward build and 5 being complex and intricate build. Complexity is decided by amount of parts, size and how involved / detailed the construction is. The more complex kits will be supported by instructions with more detail and explanation included with the kit. All kits are provided with printed instructions which will consist of text and photos of each of the stages throughout the build process. Where needed for clarity they will also include line drawings of the stages and parts needed. These kits vary in time needed to construct from approximately 4 of hours for a smaller simpler building up to a day of continuous effort. As some of the gluing will be with PVA, there will be times when the building needs to be left to stand whilst the glue sets. The time needed is reflected in the difficulty key, therefore expect a 1 rated building to take 3-5 hours to construct and a 5 rated building 18-24 hours. There are 45 buildings in this campaign split in to 3 main categories. Commercial, Industrial and Military, buildings are put in to these categories based on the theme of the building. There is also a 4th sub category called the Expedition buildings. This is a small set that features Commercial, Industrial and Military buildings but with a slightly different aesthetic to the overall design that runs through all of the buildings in this group. All of the buildings are shown below, split into the three main categories. You may pick any of the buildings if you are taking one of the bundle pledges or if taking just a single building pledge please use the correct one of the two options.
  20. About this project Welcome to the US-IMF (United States Independent Military Forces) which is one of the factions in our Governance of Technology range of sci-fi scenery and vehicles. This Kickstarter is to help us rapidly expand our successful "Governance of Technology" range of 15mm and 28mm sci-fi vehicles by completing an entire faction worth of vehicles in one go. We've chosen the US-IMF faction for this project as it represents a high-tech faction that is entirely militaristic within our 'verse and we felt that the "gamey" style of the models was not at all well represented on the tabletop at large scales. About us: We are an established manufacturer of resin models and have been operating for 12 years. We were a pioneer of using 3D prints for model masters and use resin casting techniques the same as those used in film production resulting in very high quality casts with excellent detail and exceptionally few if any, flaws. Over the last year, we have significantly expanded our resin casting facilities and introduced new techniques for both moulding and casting that have aided in both quality and producible quantity. We have come to Kickstarter seeking the funds to more rapidly expanded our model range by covering initial 3D printing costs whilst being able to cover operating costs in our day-to-day budget. Please note: This Kickstarter and the vehicles in it are designed for our "Governance of Technology" series of 15mm & 28mm combat vehicles and are in no way associated with Infinity the Game. I've seen those models somewhere else!? Indeed you may have! To complete an entire faction of vehicles requires a huge amount of creativity and design work and to achieve this we’ve teamed up with 3D designer Stephane Chasseloup alias "GrafxBox” who has a well-known and popular series of models created for 3D environments and computer gaming. We’re taking those "low Poly" designs and converting GrafxBOX's computer-game designs into high-quality ‘true 3D’ models ready for 3D printing. Once that work is completed we 3D print the vehicle parts, remove any surface artefacts from the printing process, and then go on to making production moulds for casting the models in resin.
  21. The world's first hot-swappable gaming miniatures! A line of minis with interchangeable magnetic items to customize your loadout. About this project How you think about gaming miniatures is about to change Hand of Glory is a new type of gaming miniature with a very cool twist: each Hand of Glory figure and accessory is magnetized using tiny rare-earth magnets. This means for the first time, you will be able to change your character on the fly. This will literally change the game! Since everything in the Hand of Glory line is magnetized, your character can swap out weapons and items to use whatever your adventure calls for. Since all accessories work with all figures, you can easily customize your character’s loadout and pick up new items along your journey. You can level up your character, swap weapons with allies, and steal items from foes. Use Hand of Glory to tell your own story. This project is inspired by open-world RPG video games, such as Skyrim and The Witcher (which, of course are based on D&D and other classic tabletop RPGs!). In the video game world, we love collecting and trading weapons, customizing loadouts for specific battles, managing inventory, experimenting with powerful dual-wielded weapon combinations, and searching for unique items along the way. We're super excited to bring this open-world video game feel back to tabletop gaming! Modularity and magnetism Hand of Glory puts a new spin on traditional gaming miniatures. To achieve maximum modularity, Hand of Glory uses our proprietary rare-earth magnet system. First, Neodymium rare-earth magnets are installed into the figure’s arms. Then, magnetic steel plugs are installed into each accessory. This way, the polarity of the magnet does not matter, and the magnetism is just right: strong yet easy to swap while you play. High-detailed cast pewter All of our highly detailed characters and accessories are cast in the US from the finest lead-free pewter and are easily paintable. Since the figures and items are cast separately, we can create unique character poses and highly ornate accessories that are not always possible with traditional miniature castings. The separated items also allow for easier painting. There are 9 Heroes in this first collection, and 2 add-on figures. They are Heroic scale (32mm) and range in size from 25mm to 40mm. Each figure is made from pewter (unpainted) and includes a 25mm slotted base and rare-earth magnets to install into the arms. Each highly detailed pewter accessory universally fits on ALL of the figures. In our first line, we are offering 3 different weapon and item series, and a handful of add-on items. There are swords, axes, shields, warhammers, magical items, potions, crossbows, torches, and even a dragon familiar! We have over 100 unique items, and all of them can be used by ANY of the figures. The Basic Pledge includes Series 1 weapons & items (15 total accessories) The Advanced Pledge includes BOTH Series 1 and Series 2 weapons & items (45 total accessories) The Heroic and Legendary Pledges include ALL THREE Series (over 105 total accessories!) These accessories are included with all pledge tiers These accessories are included with the Advanced, Heroic, and Legnedary pledge tiers These accessories are included with the Heroic, and Legendary pledge tiers *Each figure includes a 25mm base and rare-earth magnets, and each accessory set includes magnetic steel plugs. Figures and accessories come unpainted and unassembled and require just a bit of superglue to install. Each shipment will include a tool to help with installation. We need your help to spread the word about Hand of Glory, and the more we raise, the more stuff you will get for your pledge! Help unlock all of the free extras and additional add-on options by sharing HoG on social media, your favorite gaming forum, Reddit, etc. Hand of Glory kits include everything you need to build your arsenal. Each pewter figure includes a plastic 25mm base, and rare-earth magnets to install into the arms. Each pewter accessory includes a steel plug to install into the hand (the direction of the magnet and steel plug does not matter during installation). Each shipment will also include a tool to help with installation. We worked very hard to ensure that the parts are accurate and very simple and fun to assemble. They require only a small amount of superglue (we recommend using superglue gel!). Hand of Glory is made to be universally modular, which means that ALL current and future weapons and items will work with ALL current and future figures, and that will ALWAYS be the case! If we’re successful, we have lots of additional figures, weapons, and items in mind for future expansions, and we’d love to explore creating a game that incorporates the unique swappability of the HoG figures. Let us know in the comments what you’d like to see for version 2!

    About this project Because the best bits of your miniature collection are the bits you sculpt yourself We want to put a special BASIUS COMMUNITY pad in the hands of every tabletop gaming club in the world Since launching our first BASIUS Kickstarter project (now known as BASIUS ONE), thousands of gamers have used BASIUS to aid & develop their sculpting skills as well as customise & awesomify* their miniature collections. During this time we have had to move BASIUS out of the garage and into the Industrial Estate! The BASIUS team has grown since then, and now includes the same family of four sculpting gamers that created BASIUS all those years ago and the family of experienced casters at History Craft. We now have ten complete collections of 12 themed 50mm square BASIUS pads prototyped. Some are favourites from previous Kickstarter projects, some have been altered and updated, and the rest are brand new. We need your help to fund their creation on an industrial scale! COMMUNITY Community is important - in gaming, just like in the rest of life. We love gaming with our friends in our local geek-hobby store and we initially met many of our friends purely because of that community. Friendly gaming clubs and hobby stores that go out of their way to host gaming communities are awesome, and we want to help to increase that community awesomeness. Kevin Jackson, from the online community, sent us this photo showing how he based his miniatures using BASIUS It stands to reason that if a person wants to do something positive for others in life then it's best to do something they are actually good at, and feedback from all four of our previous BASIUS projects has shown us that we have become rather good at BASIUS-ing**. OUR GOAL With this focus of community being central to what BASIUS has become, our goal for this latest Kickstarter is quite a big one... Alongside the release of our 10 themed BASIUS collections, we want to provide every tabletop gaming club in the world with a special BASIUS COMMUNITY pad, so that all gamers can use it and help each other to use it, to develop their own and each other's sculpting. WE NEED YOU It would be awesome if every gamer & hobbyist reading this... in every town worldwide, could pledge to get hold of a pad or two in this kickstarter, make some bases with them, show their sculpting to their gaming club and ask their club chairperson to contact us to get a BASIUS COMMUNITY pad for their club. Tyler, from the online community, kindly sent us this photo. These base textures are made using just BASIUS, 'Green-Stuff' and paint - thats it.
