Hasslefree Miniatures kickstarter

Recommended Posts

Apparently there will be limited amount of art cards available as well. Which is tempting, because there's some really nice art.

I was super excited about this one but seeing the teasers I may sit it out. None of these look to be my type of minis...

 

More money for when the chubby chicks hit the Hasslefree store lol.

Ok people, I am pretty savagely working to make it possible to go live on Sunday, we'll be putting out a newsletter before then too, to warn people (possibly tomorrow, possibly Saturday).

This is the second of our miniatures, Niska, the archer. You've seen a couple of the images before but the 'pin-up' full art is pretty special I think you'll agree.

Both Niska and Erryn (the bard) will be in the initial 4 characters available.

All miniatures will be available separately and in both metal and as resin masters. There'll also be some limited availability signed art cards as add-ons (Signed by Matt, Kev and even me if you give a crap, or just Matt if you're an art collector and don't want our signatures messing with it :D).

I like Kev's work thus far, but Dixon doesn't light me on fire. It's not bad, but I find the concepts pretty generic and the art pretty plain.

 

*fixes monocle*

Hmm I may have to sell some more minis from my collection to raise some much needed cash for two kickstarters here... this one and BB 3...

Patrick Keith used Matt Dixon's art as concepts for several of the miniatures in his Bombshell Babes Kickstarter and they came out quite nice. I'd think that Kev's would as well.

Starting on my B day?

I'm in...

 

Starting the day after mine.

 

After the last few years with occassional mentions, hints and rumours that Hasslefree were going to run a kickstarter (some may remember that they were planning to run three but were waiting for the right time to launch the first one, then swapped the first two around so this was technically going to be the second one) it's finally happening. As a long time Hasslefree customer & fan I can honestly say I'm looking forwards to this one.

I have little worries about wee Kev's ability to spin gold out of putty, and I think I own all the Dixon-based Keith sculpts :)

 

It's just the art that doesn't do much for me.

Well have to keep a eye on this one. With RCon on the horizon & last month, spending cash will be tighter.

It's gonna mean some hard decisions lie ahead with Patrick's and Kev's kickstarters both running around the same time.

I know what you mean.

 

Does one go with Top Ramen, or live a little, spend the extra dime, and go with Maruchan?

      Chibis are super deformed, yet adorable characters that have lately have made a splash in the boardgaming and miniature community with games such as Super Dungeon Explore, Arcadia Quest, Ninja All-Stars and many others. They're also featured in collectible figurines and in other geeky paraphernalia.
      This is the EIGHTH Chibi KickStarter run by Impact! Miniatures and Impact! is partnering with Chibi Capsule and Märchen to bring you some incredible, new Magical Girl chibi miniatures along with monsters for them to combat!
      The funding goal will pay for the sculpting & 3-D printing of the miniatures. And for some of them: The metal masters and resin production molds needed to create mass production of the miniatures.
      The Miniatures  
      ALL miniatures in this KickStarter are provided unpainted. Unless otherwise stated after the name of the miniature, all miniatures offered with this KickStarter will be high quality 3-D prints done on a top end 25 to 50 micron printer (you should not see print lines after priming and paint).   As stretch goals are reached we will unlock additional sculpts.  Stretch Goal may also pay for metal mastering and rubber molds for mass production spincast resin models which will allow the project to offer some of the Magical Girls at lower costs to our backers.  The miniatures will require light clean up, being primed before painted and might need some assembly (although we will do our best to keep the figures with as few pieces as possible).  
      You can use your reward dollars to get any of the miniatures in the listing below.

      About
      Over a year ago we started looking at beginning a High-Seas Adventure D&D campaign. However, we wanted to kick it up a notch (or five).
       
      So, we began looking for a great set of 3d Dungeon tiles to help bring the adventures to life for our players. We wanted something that was customizable, beautiful to look at, and was playable terrain. We also didn't want to spend $100 per ship. We realized that customizable didn’t really exist- we had to *choose* if we wanted beauty, or a slim amount of customization. Not to mention that the costs were extreme per ship.. We couldn’t put together a fleet of different ships if we wanted to without breaking the bank.
      Being an Indy designer- Chris decided to start working on something better, and finally- after seeing friends and family reactions to the initial prototype- ShipWorks began becoming a reality.
      Shipworks is modular. What this means is that from the hull to the masts and everywhere in between- you have the freedom to design and print the sailing ship that you want. Not just another generic template, but your minds eye brought to life.
      The ships seen table time ;-)  
      Details and customization is also inside.. ShipWorks is also fully usable terrain- to scale with miniatures common to some of the oldest and greatest table top roleplaying games. Your miniatures can traverse the rigging shrouds and masts, climb ladders and stairs, and explore above or even below decks.
       
      Captain checking the rigging as a swab runs up to the wheel  
      Even our yard-arms are functional terrain- 25mm miniatures bases slide in with ease, and stay there- even when turned upside down!
       
      Upside down can be right side up- depending on perspective.  
      With ShipWorks you get to choose:
      The length of your ship.
      Adjust the width of the ship.
      Your prows appearance, and even the figurehead that adorns it!
      Add more (or less) masts and their length! No messy shaping of wood dowels (unless you’re into that). Add a crows nest or viewing platform.
      A host of customizations to change your hull. From the number of weapons ports to fight off enemies, to creature comforts like windows for passenger cabins. Even sleek flat hull panels for showing off your more merchant elite!
      How you want your sails, from classic square to sharp looking lateen triangles.  If you change your mind- change them on the fly! 
      Your stern-castle and fore-castle (or have neither Captain!)

      I started this figure to be a slightly overenthusiastic Russian bodyguard for Vampire: The Masquerade. When I finished her the GM said she would better serve as a character who is a Mage: The Ascension Void Engineer soldier, basically a space marine.
       
      This was also a slight experiment in the sort of colorless blonde character with invisible eyebrows, except I gave her really heavy eye makeup. She isn't really wide-eyed, but her blue eyes are very pale, giving a staring effect.
       
      According to Hasslefree's flavor text her two big guns are Heckler & Koch MP5Ks. A little Googling tells me that the MP5K is of German design, but also made in Iran and Turkey, and is "the ultimate close-quarters weapon, created for use in very confined spaces". From guns I know nothing, but okay.
       
      There is no WIP thread, but comments and questions are welcome.
