Now live on Kickstarter!
The most unexpected enemy! The cruelest, most vindictive, and most surprising foes to challenge your players on the tabletop. No collection is complete without the novelty of a band of Killer Rabbits!
The Origin Story:
I went to visit my sculptor Drew Day Williams at his Satyr Art Studio, to deliver some sketches and talk idea for my upcoming Triumph of Death II Kickstarter. On Drew's work bench I noticed print-outs of medieval drawings beside a small batch of tiny little rabbit soldier sculptures. By noticed, I mean I am a super curious sort that is always digging around the cool stuff in Drew's studio. I had to ask- What's up with the rabbits, doc?
Drew Shrugged, "I just like medieval marginalia so much, and I always wanted to make a set of Killer Rabbits." Nobody else was doing them. And they needed to be done."
At that point I became super enthusiastic, "Dude! You have GOT to get these into peoples hands- You should make a Kickstarter for them."
"Oh, I suppose." Drew groaned**, "But I've never made a Kickstarter before. I've only sold my work for others' Kickstarters (like yours) up 'till now. Got any advice?"
Now, I couldn't let that line go unchallenged, so I literally clasped my hand on Drew's shoulder, "Don't you worry, Buddy. You finish sculpting these figures, and I'll help you make a Kickstarter for them! The world (read myself as well I am sure others) need these!"
** Groaned may be a bit dramatic, but that's what happens in a retelling.
This modest Kickstarter is for a limited range of small, 25mm-ish scale Killer Rabbits, cast in pewter, in a variety of poses, wielding a variety of weapons all based upon 11-14th century art found in the margins of medieval manuscripts, based on... wait for it... rabbits! Like these images which were used as the concept art for the miniatures.
Concept art from unknown awesome monks! Rabbit "noble" mounted on a hound with his hunting snail- how cool is that?! Drew has already sculpted the base 10 figures thus far, and is poised to sculpt additional miniatures and even vignettes should you the backer build up to those stretch goals!
In the awesome event that all of the planned stretch goals for this Kickstarter campaign be met, Drew will vow** to continue on developing other ranges of designs drawn from the same sources, expanding a line of unique and lively models based on the figures found in medieval manuscripts; the beginnings of Marginalia Miniatures.
** Again, my dramatic embellishment here, but vow sounded so... monk like.
The second campaign for STL files for The Wizard's Tower is underway.
This version includes a Bridge and much more.
2 Stretch Goals down, and the third to break soon.
