Hmm, forwarding the info to Megan - she is thinking about a Forces of Nature army for KoW, and Herd would make great allies for them.

 

The Auld Grump - greater love knows no man, than to give his lady love suggestions for things to kill his army with....

 

Some folks would even consider hunters of the wild. FON is a cool army in theme.

I might be interested... I just worry about the material.

I'm listening to that. ABS can work well, but HIP is a bit more consumer friendly. Everyone is right in that it holds a special place in the market. Luckily we can use the same .CAD blue print for HIP plastic.

I was going to spring for an early prototype from the base renders. Let's see!

Not looking too good for this project - 11 days to go, and less than half way to the needed funds. ::(:

 

Megan is holding off - she wanted to see some Stretch Goals before pledging.

 

The Auld Grump - I'm going to slip in a pledge, Stretch Goals are supposed to be a bonus....

as far as I know, the creator has accepted that this will not fund and is already working at a relaunch - better prepared this time.

That is correct. Renders are booked for the 5th, which will allow me to get the render files for the models. The files can then be translated with the .CAD designer I am working with. Both still very on board.

 

I had to accept the current pace that we will likely not raise 7k as is. Though we still had enough backing to almost raise 3k. Instead of waiting around ill be getting the models to the point we can simply print them. Had a friendly backer suggest a HIP injection molder out of the UK.  http://www.skengineering.co.uk/index.php/4 . We can see if we can get on a waiting list. If this works out, it would make shipments through Europe much easier.

 

Once I get the undercuts cleared, and clearance for a prototype, i'll get a sprue made and painted up. That should give the confidence people need. Im testing frontline gaming's painting service with the Minotaur and Ghoul King for now. In practice we could print the base files we already have, but we will go with the sprue. 

 

We didn't do stretch goals because we wanted to focus on the project, but we know we needed to add on to the pot. Hence, our Minotaur. And for higher pledges, the resin battle upgrade packs. The other thing about stretch pledges at the moment is they would likely be done in resin. Kickstarters have been choking the resin houses as of late with influxes of model demands. 

 

One thing I would love to add is eagles, since we already have concept art for them. But we will see. 

 

Here is the site for updates, I expect it to take a few months.

PS: possibility we might be able to throw in the choice of a Minotaur, a Ghoul King, or a Vampire on Pegasus.

First Stretch Goal Concept

For those interested, my renderer is going to be working on the project in a few different phases for me and him to pick and choose what we want to keep and what to toss, adjusting for the design as we go along. 

 

I've already asked him to include a quote for the shaman piece, and I am looking into the details involving the head so we can avoid the big issue of snapping. This will be the male counterpart. 

 

Second concept is for stampeding rhinos. Part of the story line of the herd involves compelled animals to fight for the earth gods, which gives us an opportunity to create a fairly easy to produce beast for cavalry trays. Debate on whether to include other animals. The more animals to render, the more the cost, which means the stretch goal would have to be bigger if we go beyond the rhino.

Sculpting to be completed in three phases: neutral bodies and poses, weapons, then heads. Shaman afterward. 

First estimated concepts to review begin next week.  

Notable revisions  

  • Skirt for female Fauns to be added to a pair of legs  
  • Shoulder pad to be attachable to male and female sculpts  
  • Faun wicker shield (talked about the option to make shields separate for you bits hunters out there)  
  • Neutral pose with the bow will appear as if the arrows are getting ready to be notched, as opposed to bow drawn up. Action pose to be assimilated in the 3-1 torso.
  • Adjusting straps on the male faun to compensate for arm alignments 
  • Female faun arms will appear as female, male as male
  • Adding a two handed axe and falx, single hand versions of concept weapons to be included (in air and at rest).

This is a concept in work, but I wanted to pick some peoples brains regarding the shape and form. The head is a testing point for the female heads we will need designed in the future. The current phase is getting the newly designed torsos together for the inevitable weapon poses. 

 

Notable points,

 

In back we have a new leather strap system to incorporate the quiver and javelin pack, with potential to make it a rack for the wicker shield.

      If we are able to hit the £1000 stretch goal for the campaign it will unlock the Young Shambler miniature.
      If unlocked this figure will be added FREE to all backers.
      This is a World Wide campaign with the postage as follows:
      United Kingdom 4GBP, Europe 5GBP and Rest of the World 6GBP.
      Campaign Rewards.
      There are 3 reward levels.

      The Story
      Hello again from Munchkin Metropolis!  This time around I'm targeting all of you Roleplay Gamers!  With my DIY Dungeon Kit you can now take your game nights to a whole new level.  Being able to customize your dungeons into the format you want makes being a game master so much more fun!  Below you'll see the Base Set that includes the 4 most popular sets, plus the Stretch Goal Furniture Set.  The miniatures pictured are not included in your reward (I just wanted to show how I personally utilize this setup)...Other than that, the picture is exactly what you'll receive. 
      Too Much Information
      I've recently been to the Doc and have been placed on a very strict diet and workout regimen (Working out isn't that strict, it's just 30min of light cardio daily).  But he told me not to do anything overly physical, which for a woodworker means I can't really work.  So, to save my heart and keep my business afloat, I've chosen a campaign that utilizes the laser for 80% of the work...with the remaining 20% being light physical duty.
      Due to the sheer weight of these items, I've worked to minimize the cost on materials and labor as much as possible.   The base set weighs almost 15lb and will ship in a 12x12x6 corrugated box.  Making each set is 8 hours of laser time and about 2 hours physical labor (Which is why I set the delivery date 2 months out instead of 1...but for you early backers, expect me to start shipping rewards within a week of the campaign ending.)  Mostly, I wanted to GUARANTEE delivery before Christmas.  By setting it to October, I will have plenty of time to handle anything that comes up. 
      The base set already includes the 4 most popular Expansions and will make an AWESOME Christmas Gift!  
      The floor pieces are designed so that you can expand into infinity to make those LARGE scale battle zones.  
      You'll choose either 1 or 2 inch per expansion. Each Wall Expansion is designed to be as versatile as your campaign!  
      A Base Set ready to ship (The Furniture Set is in the bag)

      About this project
      Welcome!
      We would like to invite you to our first on Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign dedicated to miniatures! We made a few before on other platforms, but now we are also here with new models and recast offer for all old ones. All of miniatures presented below are compatible with Fantasy Battles: The 9th Age. However you can use them in any other game you want.
      During our previous campaigns we showed our possibilities and strong orientation for reaching customers needs and vision of miniatures. Also projects presented in this campaign were started some time ago and developed with The 9th Age community to be as good as it was possible. Our very talented sculptors, artists and manufacturers are doing all their best to provide you with the best products possible. We have hope, and strongly believe, that you will enjoy what you see below.
      Your support is very important for us. While we see that our products are still needed we will run future releases. So thank you in advance to give us that possibility.
      How our process look like:
      1. 3D sculpt
       
      1b. 3D sculpt of alternative options (as option for bestsellers)
      2. Printing than casting resin models
      3. Professional painting (as special option)
       
       
      All 3D sculpts has already been made. Most resin molds also. We need your help to invest in missing production molds and materials to finish all open projects. Also stretch goals will help us raise funds to make some alternative versions and options for our miniatures, which for sure you will also like as base versions.
