About this project

 

f919fec397627b1644647b773256d92a_origina

In 1973, a study carried out by researchers from the University of Borghetto San Nicolò elaborated the "Scale of happiness" (or De Carli's Scale, by its creator's name), an order of magnitude which measures the happiness of a person on the basis of certain factors. Without going into details, the various studies correlated the proportion between the income of an individual and the extent of his collection of Dwarfs: in 94% of cases, it has been demonstrated that those who spend at least 42% of their income in Dwarf miniatures are on average happier than others.This discovery shocked the scientific community at that time, generating fierce debates and disputes, but everything was soon hushed up by the lobbies of fashion which saw in Elves a model of beauty more functional to their business. In defiance of the system and the standards imposed from above, we of the Durgin Paint Forge have worked hard for more than two years to realize a collection of Dwarfs that can allow you take a leap forward in your personal De Carli's Scale. This project is an act of love: we know how important it is for you to have awesome miniatures with which to widen your collection of dwarfs, and precisely for this reason we have endeavored to give you only our best. A spontaneous, visceral, loud and often inappropriate love: typically Italian, indeed. You will soon find that only a temporary restraining order may prevent us from loving you. In the meantime, sit down comfortably and enjoy excellence.

Have an awesome Kickstarter!

This project was born to finance the production of a range of élite Dwarfs, in wargame scale (our standard Dwarf is about 25mm tall). All our models are carved digitally, prototyped at a resolution of 15micron and made of high quality resin by Grx Créations. The range includes an initial set of 16 characters and the mascot of the group: a hunting bulldog (well, at least when he doesn't sleep!).

 "PEOPLES OF INNEATH: VOLUME I"

Behind all our dwarves there is a story, such as behind each hero there is an epic origin. And Dwarves are heroes (at least, female ones, which have to give birth to such big-heady creatures!). This booklet contains everything you need to know about the Dwarves of Kazhuk Izril, a little gem entirely illustrated with a beautiful ink art, and written by one of the most famous adventurers of Inneath: Inigo da Lucci! The first version of this booklet is planned to have approx. 60 pages (A5 format), but if this project goes well, more pages will be added to keep on telling this tale!

There are three ways in which you can recruit our Dwarfs: the bundles, the purchase of individual miniatures of your choice and the mixed salad (bundles + the addition of individual miniatures). To prevent you from any form of stress, incompatible with the objectives of the De Carli's Scale, we forced our gnome slav -er, employees, to create some specific tutorials so you can manage your rewards without problems.

Add-ons are a great strategical element, in a Kickstarter campaign.
In few words, Add-ons are products that the creator makes available during the crowdfunding, when reaching determinate funding objectives. 
Despite stretch-goals, that are supposed to be free, a sort of gift by the creator to the mighty backers, add-ons are a sort of "level-up" of the project: "wow guys! your support is so incredible that we are able to do MORE!".
I thought about add-ons deeply in these last weeks, and I really hope to be able to produce them all, but I see them as the "cherry on top of the cake" (even outside Italy do you say so?) , instead of the "filling of the cake": "The Iron Crows" project is planned to be already a stunning range with lot of tasty stuff. But why deprive us of some extra-cuddles?!

At the moment, the Add-ons I have planned are thought to be the more "useful" to the project is possible:
1) the first Add-on will be the 1/24 scale version of our Iron Crow Veteran. Lot of people asks us to make also miniature in bigger scale, and after lot of debate, we decided to give it a try. Why the Veteran? Cause it seems to be the most favorite character, till now, and its sculpt is very adaptable (even by a manufacturer point of view) to the scale-changing. 
2) new characters: it's simple. I think that if we may succeed with this project, it would be all about the dwarves themselves. So we will keep on making new characters, completing as well all this already wide range. I'm thinking about two dwarf adventurers (male and female) and a blacksmith: characters that were originally planned, but that we benched for a simple matter of numbers.
3) democracy's dictatorship: the last add-on will be decided by the community (between a range of our proposals, so I'm sorry for you: there will be no dwarf putin on bear, or stuff like that).

If only they didn't look like the ugly old football headed Rackham sculpts that Confrontation players loved. You know, the ones without moustaches so they basically looked like Pacman with tiny little arms and legs. Good grief those figures were hideous (so why did I paint so many?).

I don't know why I'm even posting this. Beagle doesn't even stop by here anymore, but here's a link to another Dwarven Kickstarter:

I only wish that bearded chubby men with large noses were as popular in the real world as they are on Kickstarter.

      About

      The Ancient Evil is a miniatures range based on the universe created by H.P. Lovecraft. Bringing classic interpretations to many of the creatures but also introducing some interesting new concepts. All our line has follow the awesome art of Richard Luong, who was the main artist for Cthulhu Wars and many other games, giving the sculptors awesome concepts to follow.

      The miniatures are designed around a 30 -32 mm scale and will be cast in High Quality resin, so every single detail will be there, no more blurry plastic faces or bended legs.
      The miniatures will be supplied with plastic round bases to accomodate its size, and will come unpainted and unassembled.
      *Some of the miniatures still in 3D shape, and some minor changes might happen towards the production phase to allow a better cast*
      To select your main pledge, just which one of them you want to buy, and then look for it at the pledge deals to the right.
      If you want more than one or just multiples, you'll need to select a main one first, and then by clicking on "manage my pledge" you'll need to increase the ammount accordingly, there's no other way to do this but by hand.

      Stretch goals: As you can see each faction box has a couple shadowed figures "locked" as the campaign gots funded, some stretch goals will appear, by beating them certain FREE miniatures will be added to the contents of the different faction boxes. Except for the collector's box, which will recieve EVERY unlocked miniature!
      The Cthulhu faction box set The Hastur faction box set The Independant monsters box set Collector's Box containing all the miniatures and stretch goals!  We are funded!! So lets go with the Stretch Goals!

      About
      The Tang dynasty was considered the first golden age of the classical and now iconic Chinese gardens. Emperor Xuanzong built the magnificent imperial Garden of the Majestic Clear Lake as an homage of life itself.
      Tang Garden is a Zen-like game that will take you to the first golden age of China, where players will progressively build a garden by creating the landscape, placing the scenery and projecting their vision through vertical panoramas. During the construction, noblemen will visit the garden to admire the surroundings and the way the natural elements coexist in the most breathtaking scenery humankind has ever laid their eyes upon.

        Hail Commander!,  
      Welcome to COLONIAL SPACE WARS: ARMOURED WARFARE 3. The goal of this crowdfunding is the creation of new vehicles for the wargame CSW. This KS is the continuation of CSW: ARMOURED WARFARE and CSW ARMOURED WARFARE II, which were successfully funded. With your support to this campaign we will expand the range of tanks, mechs and buildings available, making the CSW experience even cooler!.
      Despite CSW ARMOURED WARFARE models are designed for the wargame COLONIAL SPACE WARS, they can be used in other sci-fi game systems that use 15mm and smaller scales.
      Terran battleloids ready for action!. These models were 3D sculpted by José Méndez. They are produced mainly in resin, but white metal is used for thinner components. Round 50mm DF bases, required for CSW gaming, are supplied with the vehicles. 
      Size comparison of some CSW AW models.  The project is developed by Vedra Games, a Spanish game publisher that has released the board games "Colonial Space Wars", "Dragon Rush" and "Golf´n´Roll". Our two previous CSW Kickstarters were managed professionally and efficiently, and thus we can guarantee the fulfillment of the project.
      Finally this campaign is just a little fraction of a rich sci-fi universe. In time, we want to reproduce that same range of units in miniatures that it is available in the boardgame CSW version. And with your support we will achieve it!.
      This Kickstarter campaign will last only 10 days. During this period, backers are invited to join by pledging with different perks (see below). Each perk will require the compromise of investing a certain amount of funding; the higher is this level, the greater amount of additional Tactical Resources (rewards) to choose from. 

       In any case, backers should remember that no charges would be applied in case the minimum required for funding the campaign was not reached.
      To our most committed backers (Commander pledge) belong an awesome exclusive Kickstarter reward: the centauri Polemarch Minotaur!
