About this project
Help Cold War Miniatures to launch a new range of Resin Wargame Minis for Gamers, Collectors and Painters.
Hawkmen by Cold War Minis Inspired by the old black and white serials but with a modern twist, these minis are an imagining of a range from a "rediscovered lost serial".
Adversarial Aliens, Despotic Dictators and Rampaging Robot Legions are all planned, the range launches with the Heroic Hawkmen.
The range is scaled at "Heroic 28" (32mm) which is a standard size for current Sci-Fi and Fantasy Minis. At this size they are slightly taller than some older 28mm ranges and slightly shorter than some newer ranges but should sit well alongside both. They are also proportioned to be "fairly chunky" like traditional putty sculpted minis.
(Picture of other manufactures products for comparison purposes only)
Comparison The Hawkmen are sculpted digitally and will be produced in Resin as the lighter weight allows for more dynamic poses and makes the flying poses more stable on a stand. The minis will be supplied with plastic bases and flying stands where appropriate.
To start with there are 10 designs available, half in flight and half on the ground with more designs, optional extras, specials and exclusives available to unlock if they are popular and the campaign progresses.

Stretch Goal Preview If the initial target is reached then as a thank you backers who pledge £30 (Pick a Wing) or more will receive an exclusive Kickstarter mini, that won't be included in the retail range. More to come later.
KS Exclusive when funding reached Manufacture and Shipping will be from the UK and will ship worldwide. Shipping costs are currently an estimate and will be fully calculated after the KS ends as every backer could have different requirements depending on chosen options and location. It will be upfront based on the Royal Mail's Pricing (http://www.royalmail.com/price-finder) + a small packaging charge with options for regular or tracked shipping.

About this project
This is my first set of TerraScapes. I present to you a natural Caves & Grottos core set. With the full range of double sided modular tiles, you can quickly create ultra-realistic cavern scenarios for any of your spelunking adventures! If you've ever found yourself in a cave, you know how under represented they are in the games that we love to play. There is nothing linear about spelunking and caverns aren't flat! Caves are twisted sections of open air encased by cool moist rocky walls. That's why I've coined this terrain as a Nonlinear Modular Terrain System, and it's a new way of dressing your Tabletop with functional, dynamic terrain for all your Tabletop RPG's!
TerraScapes: Caves and Grottos strives to simulate natural terrain for optimal immersion and strategic playability. To maximize the possibilities every tile is double sided! This means that with every tile you get twice the possible play space! Both tops and bottoms of each tile can be used in your layouts! Each tile is designed to work like a table where instead of legs, you have stalactites and large rocks. It allows you to stack them up however you want! This gives your layout real depth and introduces a whole new dimension for increased strategical encounters. Whether it's for your big boss battle, wargame or random encounter, everything you'll need for an endless tactical cavern layout comes with our set of Caves & Grottos!
This video shows how to build an endless array of immersive caverns for your tabletop!
What's in the Full Set? I have a ton of tiles prototyped and ready for this campaign. If everything is unlocked we will have 9 Core double-sided tiles, 3 exclusive large double-sided KS tiles, 2 Rock Packs which include a total of 8 double-sided rocks and rock/well combinations, 2 sets of Stalactite risers containing a total of 4 risers, 3 double-sided flowstone/pit centerpieces and 4 packs of double-sided wall sections containing 8 wall sections. This is everything you'll need to bring to life any dynamic cavern scenario that you could possibly dream up! You can purchase any of these Packs of tiles or accessories as Add-ons as they are unlocked during this campaign by managing your pledge amount and adding their cost(s). If you are bad with arithmetic, just send me a message and I'll give you hand personally!
I know, I know... I'm getting ahead of myself here! When the campaign launches we'll only have the three tiles from Core Pack:A, and the exclusive KS:1 tiles available. Whenever we unlock another Core Pack, I will also unlock another exclusive KS tile for you to snatch up! I am fairly confident that we are going to smash through almost every stretch goal I have planned.
Core Pack:A Random Layout with KS Tile:1 With the exception of the Stalac-Packs, note that every terrain piece in TerraScapes is double-sided. The following graphics depict both the tops and bottoms of every piece and are not separate pieces offered with the packs. The sizes listed are in terms of tile height. So a Size 2 piece is two tiles high. A Size 3 piece is 3 tiles high.
Please Manage your Pledge if you would like to add-on any pieces. A survey will be sent after the Kickstarter has concluded for you to list which add-ons and options (like paint schemes) you would like. All shipping charges will be handled by a Third Party Pledge Manager after the Kickstarter as well. You will have until December 1st, 2017 to update your Pledge using this Pledge Manager
3 Core Pack:A tiles and the first Exclusive KS Tile:1 As each set of new tiles and accessories are unlocked we will journey deeper into what TerraScapes: Caves and Grottos has to offer any story. During this campaign, your very pledges will move a group of adventurers through the deep, exploring the sets that you unlock. Our heroes fate will depend upon your support! When the campaign ends, our adventurers will either perish or succeed in escaping these deep Caves & Grottos!
Core Pack:A, KS Tile:1 and Rocks & Wells Pack:A
Rock & Wells Pack:A contains four Size 1 Risers
Stalac-Pack:A contains two Size 2 Risers
Core Pack:B Random Layout with KS Tile:2
The Wrath of Cichol is the first episodic release for Creatures of the Night.
Creatures of the Night is a fantasy miniature range (and perhaps, in the future, a game) designed by Krakon Games. Each chapter explores a period from the Lebor Gabála Érenn (Book of Invasions) - an Irish histro-mythology exploring the various races to inhabit and invade ancient Eriu (Ireland).
Chapter 1: The Wrath of Cichol introduces both the Fomorian adversaries and one of the first invaders - Partholón.
By backing this project you will help fund the production of Krakon Games' first fantasy range and be "rewarded" with your chosen models.
All models will be cast in resin and supplied without bases. Most are multi-part models that require a little cleaning and assembly.
There are 8 large character models available at project launch, with a list of stretch goals that will unlock as funding levels increase. If there's something on the stretch goal list you would like, feel free to include it in your pledge total to help unlock it.
All black bases shown are 50mm diameter. The models average around 40mm to their eyes. Here's the starting line-up and a couple of stretch goals in development:
Your RPG adventures develop into a world like no other. The places, the players, the trinkets and treasures that are discovered.
These vivid constructs exist in our imaginations in incredible detail - our aim is to bring each element of your RPG experience to life with an all new 3D modular dungeon!
Not just another STL file sale...
We're living in exciting times; 3D printing has emerged in a variety of industries for rapid prototyping and one-off on demand prints.
So far, 3D printing has proven extremely expensive for the average Joe given machinery, materials and equipment rental costs. Frankly, printing a whole Dungeon is not practical or cost effective for the vast majority of RPG players. That is, until now!
At RPG Factory, we do not sell virtual files which you'll need to print yourself - we've done all of the hard work for you!
We produce fully printed products so that you can assemble, paint and play in no time at all!
RPG Factory is built on talent and vision. We have a huge amount of artistic, CAD and business experience which we're using to deliver a cost effective product which is durable, easy to assemble and practical for RPG gamers of all ages!
It's been 12 months in the making...
We've been developing our ideas for months, working out the kinks in our designs to make sure that our products strike a balance between looking good and functioning as gaming pieces.
We've taken the time to trial the modular system with gamers to make sure that it integrates properly with the most popular gaming systems. Particularly ones which house fearsome giant lizards in giant concrete underworlds...
Finally, we've experimented with a number of different materials to ensure that the final product is extremely durable, captures detail and takes paint without discolouration or de-lamination.
Section of the Dungeon All of this effort and attention to detail has led us to our first Kickstarter, but we won't be stopping there! The funding for this Kickstarter will be going straight back into the RPG Factory coffers so that we can expand on our range in the future (and boy do we have a lot of ideas for you!!)
So, if you want to immerse yourself in exciting new adventures, dive right in and Pledge today!
Crawl through the twisting corridors, facing terrible foes!
We have designed the dungeons to be as modular as possible, giving you a huge number of options!
A number of components within the Dungeon set can be used in different ways, further increasing versatility.
Our clip system allows your set to be assembled quickly, for testing layouts and re-engineering your network or corridors and rooms in minutes!
Our Dungeon components are supplied unassembled and unpainted.
