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.

The video plays and then the K highlights. Kind of similar to annotation/links in youtube videos.

It's being casted by Troll Forge. Is that the company that did resin for Raging Heroes?

I think I missed some history.  What's the issue with Troll Forge or the Raging Heroes project?

A true KickStarter start up. A few nice looking 75mm busts looking for printing and casting funding. Limited hours left if you are interested.

I am backing. I am not concerned with the troll forged issues on a 75 mm bust as nothing will be as fine as some of the supper fine connections of the Raging heroes stuff and the crispness of the details was good on the ones I had recieved in this material.

      The creator of the Goblins internet comic strip is trying to fund an animated version of the story. If you're not following it, you might want to check it out. (Unfortunately, the comic site sells merch, so no link.)
       
      Note: I added the link as just an ordinary link because I can never follow the embedded version. It might just be me, but if it's not, I got your back, buddy.

      About
      The Heavy Gear Blitz! Plastic Peace River, NuCoal & Utopia Miniatures Kickstarter is to fund the molds for three new armies of high quality multi-part plastic miniatures for Dream Pod 9's Heavy Gear Blitz! - Tabletop Wargame. Our initial goal is to raise $50,000 needed to make two plastic injection molds for the 8 core models of the Peace River and NuCoal faction Armies. Mini Stretch Goals after that will add extra parts to the sprues like running legs, extra arms, and extra weapons. Larger Main Stretch Goals will make more plastic injections molds possible and Unlock the core Utopia Army models and additional models for all three factions.  
      We believe that being an early supporter should be encouraged so we are setting our reward levels so that the early Heavy Gear Commander Level Backers will get their rewards shipped out in the first wave. Sign up early to lock in your shipping order and watch as stretch goals bolster your forces! We also have some Faction Army Set Pledge Levels for Backers just wanting miniatures from one of the factions. All models from the Heavy Gear Commander Set and unlocked models will also be available at a special price for this Kickstarter to all backers as add-ons rewards for an extra pledge. 
      HGB Kickstarter Heavy Gear Commander Reward Level.  
      HGB Kickstarter Peace River and NuCoal Army Commander Reward Levels.  
      HGB Kickstarter Cadet and Gear Pilot Reward Levels.  
      Plus we have a Retailer Pledge Level, to encourage Retailers to help in funding the project and reward them with the Kickstarter Sets. The final mass market retailer army boxes will be announced later, once we know how many molds and models are unlocked as part of the Kickstarter.
      Please Note all prices in this Kickstarter are in Canadian Dollars ($CAD) as we are based in Canada, at launch $1 CAD was worth about $0.77 USD with a 1.30 exchange rate. So the Heavy Gear Commander Reward Level of $130 CAD is about $100 USD.
      Here is a link to our Pledge Calculator excel file with all the Reward Levels and all the Add-Ons available that you can download and use to easily calculate your pledge to enter in the Kickstarter. We'll be updating it during the Kickstarter as Stretch Goals are unlocked.

      About five or six years ago I received the Knight Models 75mm Boromir as a Christmas gift. I started to assemble the pieces and became intimidated by what I needed to do to 1) finish assembly and 2) actually paint him. Last year I finally worked up the nerve to start painting, got some base colors and his face started, then again lost my nerve and drive. A couple of months ago I at last took Boromir off my shelf-of-unlimited-opportunity and started working. 
       
      I finally finished him.

      Three-quarter view:

       
      Does this lighting wash me out?

       
      (Some day I'm going to work out my photography settings and workflow.)
       
      Each model is a learning experience and I learned quite a bit on Boromir: how to deal with large expanses of space, a method of highlighting black, keeping colors (somewhat) in balance on a large figure, and the importance of securing the weight of a big hunk of white metal. All and all, I enjoyed painting Boromir and I'm no longer afraid of taking on larger sizes.
